What if you flipped your mp3 player over only to find a cell phone on the other side? Sprint and Samsung have created a phone that keeps media and phone functions separate instead of combining them, in an effort to make each experience better.
The UpStage features two sets of controls, two screens and two different sets of features. This means you'll be using both sides of the phone all the time. Make a phone call, turn it over, find a new song, turn it over, send a text message, turn it over, browse the web.
But are two sides really better than one?
Our video hands-on with Sprint's newest music phone, a CDMA version of the Samsung Ultra Music.

In regards to the battery wallet, etc.
Also, in regards to the info sticker on the phone. I'm sure everyone will take this off. I would too, but please, please stick it to the battery side of the wallet. This way if your screen breaks and you need to get it serviced, the tech will still be able to scan the serial number on the sticker to be able to work on it.
So, do others phones work the opposite of mine?? I"m hoping Sprint will change this out for me since I'm still within the 30 days and I guess if they say no I'll switch the M1 as this phone is not as impressive as the made it sound to be.
