Internet savvy teens (and tweens) have a tremendous appetite for entertainment, as well as placing a high priority on sharing their experiences with each other. The Jet is the first phone from Amp'd Mobile, the new service hoping to capitalize on the demands of today's youth. Amp'd offers cool cameraphones and affordable contracts that include data, voice, and Push-to-Talk service.

Music Player Issues (and others, as it turns out)
The issue is that if the filename is too long, the song won't show in the list. I'm not sure what the limit is, but who cares? just make the name shorter until it works.
As far as battery life goes, what did you expect? This isn't a motorola v120. There is alot more going on here with about the same type of battery. So buy a car charger, and don't try to tell me that you will never use it, because I might be forced to smack you.
