    Dear Notan

    I have a flaw in my personality when I am wromg I admite it.I just spent
    close to an hour on the phone with Sprint. You were right you can go down
    to regular vision on the Samsung A900. I was misinformed by half of Sprint
    CSRs. However I would strt a new plan at 15 dollars a month as opposed to
    20 dollars a month for the EVDO . I have to weigh that one out.
    Again I am sorry .

    No reason for *you* to be sorry. I blame the folks at Sprint!

    While this isn't the first time various Reps have have given
    erroneous information, unfortunately it won't be the last.

    Welcome to the world of cheap labor! <g>

    Take care!

    On Saturday I went to my nearby Sprint store to check out the A900, and
    remembering your post about vision vs. power vision, I asked the rep who
    was helping me if it supported regular vision and he told me no too.

    Notan didn't say otherwise. He said his wife "had" to start with a Power
    Vision plan, but then later downgraded to Vision. That being said,
    Notan's wife could have done this when Vision was only $10. I write this
    because I personally don't see the point in switching from a $15 Power
    Vision plan to a $15 Vision plan. YMMV.

    The 15 dollar vision plan included picture mail. the power vision does not

    And for that matter, I trhink it was in the A900's manual ( I have one)
    or somewhere else I read, and have EXPERIENCED myself, that if Power
    vision is not available in a particular area, the phone will
    automatically use regular vision.

    Remember you still have to pay for a power vision plan tho. They suck 15
    dollars a month with no text messages or picture mail. Most people that
    work with me have cancelled power vision and taken the text service and use
    the computer to get pictures from the phone.

    If this is true, then I CAN get a regular Vision plan on the A900 instead
    of the Power vision plan since I live far outside the Power vision
    coverage.

    This is very enlightning. I'll keep reading everyone's posts.

    Yes, I'm aware of that. But here's the scoop with my current plan...
    The last picture I received was from my now ex-girlfriend back in November,
    and if someone wants to send me text messages, I have it setup on MSN and
    ICQ to send a web text message to my phone. (Yes, that's extra which I pay
    for) So I text them back through the MSN port or if it's ICQ, then I use
    an application called "JIMM" for Java Instant Mobile Messenger. Works like
    a charm since Sprint won't port ICQ. They do on the other big three IM
    clients...Yahoo, AIM, and MSN plus some other obscure chat clients.

    But since it's just me with no family close by, I think this'll work out
    well for me.

    And my current Vision plan is $15 a month, and if I want to send pictures
    to myself, I e-mail my yahoo account with my phone. If I want to do this
    in the reverse order, there's a website which will let you upload pictures
    to it, connect your phone to this web site, use the reference number, input
    that number, then download the picture I just took with my phone...all for
    free.

    If you're curious about this website, here's the address so you can check
    it out for yourself.

    http://pcs.cruz-network.net/

    I've been using this website for well over a year, and it's made with
    Sprint users in mind. Sure, other carriers will work, but the way to do it
    is a little different than how Sprint users use this site.
