I rated this 4 stars.

:rs::rs::rs::rs::ys:

This is the second installment of MOG (Movies on the Grass, outside of the Hale Library at K-State - Movies with a conscience).

Normally, I don't watch much in the way of documentaries...but since due to weather this was indoors and I had come out for the pre-show entertainment, and now didn't feel like walking back home. I stayed.

I'm glad I did.

When and What Blackberry....

Further late night investigation seems to indicate that a version of the 8700 will be available in CDMA soon. 8702?

So, should I wait for this?

How long can I endure without a local phone number? Or how long can I endure without a blackberry? Though there was also the part where I thought about having two personal wireless accounts...one voice and one blackberry. Though I'm starting to have too many different gadgets to contend with.

Especially when my week with the HOT phone rolls around.

But, I'm still not ready for Palm & Phone convergence. I'm still eyeballing the Tx, but I still haven't made that move yet. Because pretty much the only thing that I use is DateBk5.

I usually acquire new phones around the end of October....hopefully I'll retain this pattern? End of October being around when my birthday is &#59;D

Though I've also seen rumors that the next 8700 series is targetted for iDen....hopefully, the CDMA will actually be first (or at the same time). Since I'm pretty sure of the choices I would prefer a Sprint or AllTel, rather than a Nextel. I have no idea what the coverage is like for Nextel, and I don't know anybody (at work) that uses them....which might be an indication.

Hopefully not Verizon Wireless....who I had jumped ship from before T-Mobile and who isn't available in this new area (seems it is AllTel that is the equivalent company). Of course, more and more, it seems cell phone companies aren't into customer service. So, maybe if I stop expecting it.....

Blackberry Addiction.

Maybe I was premature on saying that I would give up Blackberry, because of my current problems with T-Mobile (and not being able to get Cingular).

Looking at the other phones that are out there....I just can't see myself using such devices. Feels like I'm cutting something off of me. Even though they do offer other bells and whistles....but I don't have much need for a camera in a cellphone (especially the crummy res., etc....and I'm rarely with out a digital camera... &#59;) ). And, have seemingly less interest in MP3 or watching TV by cellphone.

Though other than the 8700, which Blackberry's purport to play WAV file attachments? Since, that's one thing my current blackberry doesn't do....and it would be nice since my home phone has the option to forward its voicemail's as a WAV attachment....

Maybe I'll just have to settle for a 7130e.... :|

OTOH, the other model that will do WAV files is the 7100i....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
