camera/screen resolution settings!!

The 2 megapix is great if the screen was worth a darn. The majority of the pics I take appear very dark until I tilt the screen perpendicular with the ground. Is there anyway to change the screen contrast or camera settings so that it will take better pics in low light, or at least improve the screen sharpness?????? help anyone??

new to the i880


OK I am new to the i880 so I am kinda lost on some of these fun new toys it has..like bluetooth and how to get music onto my mp3 player. (grrr having trouble with that)I figured you could just use ur little card and put it in the computer, download the music and viola it would be there..but nope it aaaint.
I keep reading something about a usb cord and webjal and other things that is confusing to me.
my niece has some really cool ringtones on her phone that she wants to ''send to me via bluetooth'' and well I am honestly lost on that one. I have deducted that I probably wont be able to use them as ringtones but i can webjal them somehow and I guess convert them.
one thing at a time... anyone wanna walk me through all i need to have ...

Why the ringtone selection/method sucks:

taken from the i880's Owner's Manual, p.168:

Rules for Assigning Ring Tones
Not all audio files can be assigned as ring tones:
โ€ยข Ring tones purchased or received from Nextel
can be assigned as ring tones. Other audio files
may not be supported as ring tones.
โ€ยข Non-DRM items and expired DRM items cannot
be assigned as ring tones.
โ€ยข Files on the memory card inserted in your phone cannot be assigned as ring tones.

What the heck? That's one reason I got this freakin' phone was to use mp3 ringtones. Anyone know of a way around this? ๐Ÿ˜ข

Battery Type and Life??

Anyone out there know what kind of battery this phone is gonna take? I have the i580 currently, and am wondering if the i880 will take the same battery. That wouldn't be so bad, because the batt. life on the i580 is about three days or so, depending on useage.

Camera Functions

It's probably so obvious that I'm missing it, but...
I can't seem to figure out how to look at photos that I've taken. I have the phone set to save photos to the memory card (I bought a 1 gig mircoSD card) but I can't figure out how to access it from the phone to look at what I've shot. I know the camera is working because when I remove the card and download to my PC, I can see the photo.
Also, is there anywhere that I can find a more comprehensive instruction manual?

I just got the i880 from Nextel. They don't support ringtones yet for the phone. I called customer service yesterday, they said it will take approx 2 months to update their website so, I can buy ringtones then. I used to upload them on my i850 thru the usb cable and my computer. But, everytime I hook up the usb cable to the i880, it acts as a removeable harddrive and only allows me to upload music/pics/videos to the memory chip in it. And webjel and myjal doesn't work with this model. Does anyone have any idea how I can download ringtones to the i880?

long on features , short on looks

This may be my personal opinion but it seems that while having alot of attractive features boost phones are just not attractive. Their brother and sister versions on the nextel and sprint side are even more attractive yet boost sticks with the design of a brick. Can someone educate me on the reason why boost phones have to be so damn ugly. Don't get me wrong I love my boost phone and i'm thinking of stepping up to the i885 but its soooo damn ugly.
