    Does anyone have this download and if so, do you like it and think it is
    worth the 10 bucks a month?

    Definitely NOT worth it. First, it kills battery power. Second, it is
    very jittery as the bandwidth [and processing capability of a phone] is
    just not there. Last, I would rather read on the phone and watch video
    elsewhere. $1 / month, maybe, $10 not a chance.

    I keep it, but its a geek thing. What you get is stuff like ABC, MSNBC,
    about 18 other TV channels, delivered as a series of still photos, sort of
    a slide show, every 2-5 seconds. I had the biggest use for it watching
    Kerry's acceptance speech, was not able to get back home in time, so, I
    caught it all on Mobi=Squint A Vision.

    Is it worth $10? Not really, its like buying $5 draft beer.

    $5 draft beer? Unless you are buying that at a sporting event, methinks you
    are getting tapped pretty good ... <g>

    Presumably future phones will do a better job. If $10/month is not
    just a special introductory get-addicted price, the cable companies
    may regret not trying to kill it now.
    For now its just a cool toy- worth it if you enjoy it, not if you
    don't.

    I have it for now. It's good to listen to, not much to watch, kinda like
    streaming web video on a 28.8 connection. Is it worth $10/month? Probably
    not, but if you opt for the Premier vision pack, you get $10 credit a month,
    so essentially makes mobi free, or $5 if you have the Picture vision pack.

    I'd mirror what's already been said. Now, however, things just start=20
    to get interesting. With the release of the A700 phone from Samsung,=20
    you get streaming video at 15 frames per second. Not *quite* full=20
    motion video.

    Since the phone is now released, I feel comfortable reporting I got=20
    to test this phone, and actually watched the Aliens vs. Predator=20
    trailer on the phone. Not bad. A 2 minute video can need to buffer=20
    up several times when reception varies during playback, or if signal=20
    is down to two bars or less. But it was still cool.
