Well everyone the CDM phones were wonderful platforms. I am sad to have had to revert to the LG VX 9700. These truly were great phones. The Toshiba phones were second to none and I mourn their exit from the cell phone business. The only thing that could have made the CDM-9500 and 9900 immortal would have been to make them with a brushed stainless steel case with a more robust rugged hinge. Plastic cases and hinges were the downfall. The software was great, graphics superb, options and layout was wonderful. These were also the last of the Tri-mode phones. I will miss these phones. Farewell all.
Hey turn the lights on for a minute! I just reactivated my wife's old 9500 because my regular phone went through the wash! I see in the manual that the phone has a built in modem. Can I set this phone to access dial-up internet service and connect to my laptop? I only want to pay for minutes used not a full blown data plan since I really only need it once a week or so. Slow Speed? No problem since practically all the files I need are text with practically no graphics
