    Hello,

    I'm considering switching to Cingular (Sony Ericsson T616) picture phone.

    The Wireless Internet Express Plan ($6.99 for 1 MB) is confusing to me. Can
    someone explain?
    - Does this include sending photos to other cingular people (or is that a
    separate plan)?
    - How big are the photos? How may pictures can I send for 1MB?
    - Does this include text messaging, if so how many SMS? (Because you can buy
    buckets of SMS too for 100, 250 or 750)

    Thanks!

    Wireless Internet Express if just for browsing the net. In my opinion
    Cingular's prices for wap browsing are extremely expensive.
    And 1MB could be used quickly! Going over your monthly allotment could
    be very expensive.

    If you want to send pictures, thats MMS (MultiMedia Messages). Their
    current special is $2.99 unlimited messages for 3 months. After that,
    its 25 messages per month for $2.99. You can send to any MMS capable
    phone & any computer.
    MMS messages do not count against your Wireless Express plan.

    If you want to send pics (MMS), you will also have to subscribe to
    text messaging.

    The photo size is about 320x266. A word of warning, I think the pics
    this phone takes are very bad compared to other picture phones I've
    had. (samsung a620, nokia 3650). They are grainy. However, I did find
    that they look better in sunlight (but they still don't produce
    "great" pics.) For indoors, maybe the flash attachment would help.

    Well, from what I know, they are two different things. Text messaging and
    WIE are different. I don't have WIE on my phone, but I can send text
    messages, and pictures. As for how much 1mb is, that would depend on what
    you are sending. A guess would be that the pictures that your camera phone
    would take are no more than about 15 kb in size.

    WIX is for web "surfing" and email. 1MB may be enough depending on
    your needs. 1MB on a WAP browser is a lot (too painful to do more),
    and you can devastate that in one session with MS Outlook on your
    laptop.

    > - Does this include sending photos to other cingular people (or is that a

    For sending photos you want the MMS service. They charge by the
    picture, not by the byte, and the prices are optimized for pictures.

    > - How big are the photos? How may pictures can I send for 1MB?


    Depends on your camera, and MMS charges by the photo, not the byte.

    Text messaging is extra.
