Why did you set up so many different passwords set up? You should have no
more than two passwords, a four letter one for VM, and one to access your
vision account.

Make sure you aren't touching your antenna when either making calls or
accessing Vision.

E911 has the capability, but the user doesn't. And ... for all I know, there
isn't any GPS software available on the phones.

How confusing is it to connect to a link?

It's all not that difficult. Is this your first phone that can access the
web by chance?

You sound like you a wannabe list ... Maybe you should have spent more money

No, but if you want to waste some time, go for it ...

high res is 640x480. Not sure with the newer phones, but I'm sure your
manual will tell you.

How do you download. Can you send

Yes you can from any of the following sites ...

http://www.3gupload.com
http://www.matrixm.com
http://www.xingtones.com
http://www.myphonefiles.com

Or, you can check out FutureVision's SnapMedia software.

Same thing as above.

It is. You can tether your phone to the home PC and connect with Vision via
limited use, but be advised ... IT'S NOT THERE TO REPLACE YOUR CURRENT ISP!
If you want to get rid of your home phone, why don't you considering getting
a cable modem for your regular ISP service.

> WHERE"S THE FAQ???????????


There isn't one, save one that's been created by a troll here who has
changed identities 55 times, who misquotes everyone, lies, purposely
un-moofs email addresses so that spam bots can harvest them, and doesn't
answer directed questions at him.

If you have questions, someone in here will be happy to pipe in and try to
answer your questions.
