Finally broke down and got a celly.
THE ONE WITH THE PRETTY "LITES".

Mine is pink.
It is a really simple flip phone. I wanted to have my ear where I hear and my mouth where I talk. I didn't need to get all complicated with a qwerty keypad because T9 works just fine. I wanted an alright camera with enough storage to save. This one has a 2 megapixel cam and does videos. It saves the videos in quicktime format though and I hate how quicktime manages to be incompatible with windows media programs for editing.
It's most appealing feature to me was the LED matrix. When a contact calls, the LED lights will scroll the name on the front. The above video is someone's creation using the LED features. It is fun. There is a way to make the LED light up shapes. There are at least 6 programmed in the phone for chosing, but you can actually make your own patterns. I have to play with it or hope there grows some user made ones for sharing; There is also animated wallpaper to choose from, but the phone just came out this spring, I guess and no downloads available yet. I find that when I save an animated .gif file, I can not play it on my wallpaper. There is something else that the file needs so it can do so and I am nagging around about it in the Tmobile forums.
I am really not a phone person. I can easily email or start up the vidcam. I used to have a voIP phone. Mostly because I have evolved into the quintessential geek grandma. It breaks down to ONE simple fact: technology has figured out how to make TV interactive. Gamers, bloggers, facebook peeps, myspacers and oh do not forget "Whores" of Warcraft" and Second Life are just boob tuber couch potatoes that are now allowed to go somewhere with their TV. My short experience with Second Life allowed me to be this super model that had an awesome wardrobe. All free! .
