Anyway, if you have that software, you can import MP3's, snip them up (if you want to, you don't have to), and transfer them to the phone. You can then use them as ringtones. You can transfer the full song as well. I figure you can fit probably 10-15 full songs on the phone. The speaker quality is ok; I haven't tried it with headphones to see if it works any better.
You can also browse for images on your computer, edit them (to scale them) in the software, transfer them to your phone, and view them or use them as wallpapers, which I thought was cool.
Probably the most interesting multimedia aspect is video support. I went to a few locations that said this phone does not support video playback, which is absolutely un-true. The phone can accept video in the .3gp format, which, again, the 4.0 software can import video, convert to, and transfer to the phone. I really wish that Motorola would have put just a bit more memory on the phone (it has 10MB; 50MB would have been awesome, but even 25MB would have worked). I put some video on the phone, and doing the math, if you completely wiped everything on your phone, you could fit approximately 11 minutes and 7 seconds worth of video on the phone (this depends on framerate, but it comes out pretty close either way). If they would have just put another 15MB of memory on the phone, you could fit a full 30-minute (20-minute minus commercials, 19-minute minus intro and credits) TV show on the phone, which would be fun on commutes or lunch or whatever. Oh well.
Anyway, great litte phone (can't believe I only paid $59.99 for it), with some pretty cool multimedia support. I'd definitely recommend it if you are looking for something on the low-end that has a great value. Oh yeah, it works really well as a phone, too. ;)
