    Bored and sick, stuck at home on a rainy day so here ya go....

    Just got our phones from work. Its not live for customers yet but it should be around the 28th from what we're told.

    There are two phones available the Samsung and the LG. Samsung is the flip, the LG is a slide (and reall :ugh: )

    The samsung has bluetooth ( :bigthumb: ), very decent speaker phone, amazing battery life (left connected to P2T for the last 3 days, have not charged it yet, bluetooth on also 24/7), EDGE, voice recognition and only weighs in at 3.45 oz :eek3:

    The P2T feature works VERY well. Its just a quick as nextel and voice quality is very good. The only downfall really is the fact that you cannot change the P2T alert tones. They can get annoying quickly :hs:

    Anyway here are a few pics of the samsung. So far its great :eek5:

    We'll see how good it works once there are multiple users - only to find out it turns into another Verizon nightmare. I recall it worked perfectly too - until it started getting alot of users and then it fell apart.

    With Cingular PTT, you can convert a PTT conversation to voice...Can nextel do that? Nope. :big grin:
