High end phone for .99 cents?

There's this company out there selling the kickflips for .99 cents? Is this legit? If it's supposed to be a high end phone? Anybody bought from them? Their site is complete-wireless.com
It must be like wirefly. Its prolly legit but you no doubt end up signing all sorts of third party contracts.

Copying photos back and forth

The one thing about the Kickflip that drives me nuts, is the whole photo "database" thing - how you cant just copy over photos. Thing is, it means you also cannot copy photos TO the phone. So I can't get any of the 100+ photos that I always carry around on my phone, onto the Kickflip.

Helio tells me that this will be addressed in the next (maybe non-beta) version of their Media Mover software. Erf...

mac sync work around

so one of our contacts at helio is a mac user, and today he and i worked out a way for you to get your contacts from apple's address book or microsoft entourage to your helio phone. it's not an isync solution, so it won't constantly update, but at least it will save you from the pain of having to enter all your current contacts into your new kickflip or hero. here's how it works:

If you're using Outlook on a PC, you can easily export your Address Book to
a .CSV file by going to your Outlook Contacts and choosing
File-->Export-->Export to a File-->Export to Comma Separated Values

If you're using a Mac, making a .CSV file is a little bit trickier:

If you have Entourage, go to Contacts and choose Export-->"Local contacts ...

TV output

I've heard of this on phones in Japan, I may be wrong but im pretty sure this is the first one over here. What kind of output is it? ide assume a cord that adapts into a composite signal, yellow red and white. But I'm very interested if anyone knows. And do we know what TV services this MVNO will offer? and whos network do they use?
This phone is from Korea. service name is Halio. SKtelecom and Earthlink behind Halio. Currently I'm not sure wich TV service they are going to but I'll have more information later on.
if you want to know more about this
please email to me, I can gi...

Exactly. The optional TV cable plugs into the side of the phone, and outputs to standard composite c...
if you go onto the helio.com website they offer a users manual for both of their phones.

we have a kickflip

phonescoop received our kickflips (rich and i each got one) from helio this morning. have questions? fire away and we'll try to answer as many as we can
What is the time frame we can expect to see your review of this phone? Also what is your opinion of MVNO? What I'm asking is are they somehow less reliable to some degree compared to the large regional carriers. ok thanks
Tell me the packaging isn't freaking sweet! I mean, they use magnets! MAGNETS! Haha!

(Got my Kickflip a few days ago - jury's still out as I'm a "power" user... but you definitely get everything they say you do. The hardware itself is pretty damn ...
i wanna know what the OS speed is like. how the bluetooth works with browsing into phones. (if possible). and user friendliness
How does the Internet compare to other carriers?

I also would like to know when you will have a full review. I need a phone but I don't want to buy one w/out a review. NOBODY has a review yet! How long does it take? (

which carrier is this phone going to be offered for?
Helio, the screen didn't give it away? 🙄

No BT?

Those look like high-end phones and either one have bluetooth.
What a shame?
Meh - styling looks like Hello Kitty (as in a previous article), it will probably be geared towards the youth market. The 2MP camera is a nice bonus, but doesn't make it a high end phone.
