Is it possible to use MSN somehow?
Is there a standard headphone jack?[/quote:3cg19k2h]
Yep there is MSN and Skype as well... I think it depends what carrier you go with though as to whether you can get them to work. I bought the phone outright and got it SIM unlocked, and used my old sim card... I can't use MSN or anything like that but the GPS works and I can go on the internet and stuff like that.
The headphone jack is also a standard size, so if you break the headphones that come with it you can just buy any normal ones and they plug right in there.
The camera on this phone works best in natural light (as do most digital cameras) but it's not too shabby indoors and at night (though a little grainy). The video capture is where this phone shines though... records straight to MP4 at 640x480 30fps, uses about 10mb/sec of memory though so you would want to re-encode any captured video or get it off the phone and onto a DVD or something.
I was tweaking it more last night and figured out how to turn all the menus off of the main screen so you can have a nice wallpaper that's not covered up by repeated menu options. It also makes it less likely that you will accidentally go into some app like the internet and cost yourself a whole bunch of money without realising.
I also tried a video call the other day and it works great as well... there is a secondary camera in the front of the phone for video calls and for taking self portraits. The front camera isn't as good as the main one though obviously.
Out of all the other phones I was looking at, this one was the best in it's price range ($1200 AUD) and seemed to have the least amount of problems/customer complaints. I have had only one small problem with it so far when transfering data to the phone from the computer... the phone mysteriously locked up and I couldn't even turn it off, but after about 60 seconds the phone just reset itself and then it was fine.
I rate this phone
