    They call this broadband? My 14.4 modem was faster than PCS Vision.
    It takes 20 seconds to load up 100 characters worth of text. The
    selection of "screen savers" is a joke. The games are retarded
    (Pacman is impossible to see and blurry as hell on my VI660). MobiTV
    is a such a great concept, but so poorly executed.

    I was so excited about getting PCS Vision with my new phone, but it's
    such a retarded service. Why anyone would subscribe to it is beyond
    me.

    Re: PCS Vision is a joke

    I don't think PCS/V claims to be broadband. PCS/V gives you many data
    services via a mobile phone connection... comparable to 56k dialup at best.
    Give it time and it will become faster. It's not there yet. Don't blame
    PCS/V.

    If you want broadband wireless, get an ultraportable laptop with WiFi and
    connect to PCS/V (or whoever else) that way.

    Re: PCS Vision is a joke

    That IS an odd thing.

    When I connect my Sayo 6400 to my Laptop I get some VERY nice speeds
    averaging 10-11k/s

    Pages are not speedy but they are nicely faster than a modem (downloads) lag
    time kills page loads so its the equal roughly of a 56k connection.

    BUT As I am assuming you referenced below Loading pages on the PHONES SCREEN
    is HORRENDOUSLY slow. I mean tiny small under 2k pages take forever
    sometimes.

    I am thinking it is the phone/software (browser) and not the phone/data
    connection.

    Ah, it's nice to see that centers for higher learning are pumping out students,
    whose priorities in a phone service are games and screen savers.

    I guess I'm just old fashioned, in that I use my phone purely as a communication
    device.

    Re: PCS Vision is a joke

    I've never seen them call it "broadband". Then again, I guess it depends
    on which "they" you are referring to. I challenge you to be more vague.

    As far as the "blurry as hell on my VI660" remark, it's not the game's
    problem. You bought a cheap phone. Deal with it. You had an opportunity to
    compare that phone to all the others Sprint PCS offers, and you chose that
    one, even with its obviously inferior display qualities. Now, you're
    complaining in such a manner as to point the finger at Sprint PCS, where
    the mistake is entirely yours.

    Finally, please state why you feel MobiTV is "so poorly executed." Don't
    leave us hanging, I'd love to hear this one.

    Re: PCS Vision is a joke

    I feel that I might be feeding a troll, but my experience with Vision is
    that its slowness is more a by-product of a slow processor in the phone
    itself. I had a N400, and now I have a Treo 600, with its own net software
    (i.e. Blazer, and some third party stuff I installed), and considering its
    140mhz (I think) processor, it works considerably faster at displaying
    content.

    Obviously somebody need to be arrested as apparently someone at sprint
    is holding a gun to the head of this "student"--or otherwise holding
    him against his will and forcing him to use/retain vision,and possibly
    taking advantage of a mentally challanged individual. Help I fell and
    I can't get up)

    I had heard the current education programs were in trouble, but I had
    no idea just how bad. Possibly someone could contact the local
    authorities, who with the swat team, might go out and rescue this
    obviously helpless soul from the clutches of vision, and file the
    appropriate charges against the offenders.

    Don't forget the related charges cocerning the screen savers, etc

    That the problem with the education system today, even someone with a
    college education ain't learned how to cure this "most" complex
    situation. ..Tragic, it's just tragic that things like this are
    allowed to happen.. Possibly, the congress should look into
    registering vision, like guns are registered, you know, to keep down
    the vision related crime..write your congressman, why have I not heard
    of this on CNN or Fox news--thank goodness the word is getting out
    over the internet--spread the word, beware of "THE VISION" Sounds
    like a Steven Spillburg movie plot.

    I am feeling very weak, can't type anymore (thank God)--The vision is
    taking over my minimal faculties --possbily the medical folks will
    have a "vision shot" by next vision season, unless of course it
    continues to mutuate to a more powerful strain when even more will be
    infected.

    Or maybe it's like dope, since they give it awayfor 2 months to just
    get you "hooked"---which means we need clinics to treat the Vision
    Adicts and possbily also "VA" meetings (you know, like AA for
    alcholics)

    This problems is so complex, others, can you offer suggestions to wipe
    out this scourge.

    I disagree, I am very happy with my vision service on my phone. (VGA-1000).
    Web browsing is plenty fast, pictures and ringtones take just a few seconds
    to download. I can check weather, news, sports, etc... anytime, anywhere I
    want. I can check my email, and not just my sprintpcs mail either. I can
    do google searches, etc....

    Just yesterday, my wife went furniture shopping while I was at work. When
    she found something she liked and wanted my input, she just snapped a pic
    and sent it to my phone. From the time my ringer went off till I had the
    picture on the screen is no more than 10 seconds. She could even attach a
    short voice message with each picture. Without vision, we couldn't have
    done this.

    Also, you mention that the selection of screen savers and ringtones are a
    joke. Do you know there are other sources of these files that are much
    larger that are also FREE! Why pay for sprints screensavers and ringtones
    when you can get them free from many many sources.

    Pacman plays and looks fine on my phone too. As do other games. perhaps it
    is just your phone that your not happy with, and not the vision service. Go
    play with a few different phones at your sprint store, you may find
    something else that is better suited to your wants.
    good luck,
    Matt
