    Has not been approved today. So far from what I've found it may take a week or two more for SE to fix it and Cingular to approve it. Then another week or two to stock and ship it.

    mother fawk. i'm getting bored of waiting. by the time the damn thing's out, there will be news of something cooler coming.

    speaking of which, the moto V635 sounds cool...

    http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=668


    "The successor to the popular V600 and V620. Upgrades include a color outer display, megapixel camera with video capture and flash, MP3 player, a TransFlash memory card slot, and EDGE high-speed data. Other features of this clamshell quad-band GSM phone include changeable outer metal shells, speakerphone, and voice dialing."

    yeah. i just noticed it on the front page of phonescoop the other day in my almost daly check of phonescoop for new release date info on the S710a.

    i may just end up waiting for the V635 instead. i've really grown to like my V551 and the V635 has everything the V551 has plus the stuff mentioned above. also claims more than twice the talk time of the V551 and this sounds good too...

    Where did you get that info from?

    sales portal lists it as being released I believe on the 17th.
    Treo 650 releases on the 7th


    (so they say for now anyway)

    Also, Cingular is going to carry nothing but flip phones, with the exception of Nokia. They signed a deal to be the exclusive candybar phone for Cingular
    (though we will still carry the new samsung candybar, which i've yet to sell one of :ugh: )

    I've been looking on Howard Forums. But after looking even more, there's been conflicting oppinions on what happened. The 17th of what? Would the S710a be considered a candybar? It's one big candy bar.

    What's the news on the new calling plans?

    Seems like the 17th is a more reliable date hopefully. The news on the ordering of memory stick PRO duo is rather interesting.

    new calling plans are going to blow

    media works now only gets you 3mb of data instead of unlimited.

    Fam. talk 9.99 lines now start at 69.99 instead of 59.99, and data and text has less in the bucket for the same price. Get what you want NOW so that you can keep it once things change over!

    S710 is considered a flip. The only candybars Cingular is going to carry now are Nokias, and the newere samsung candybar (haven't sold one yet :ugh: ). All other ericssons and siemens and non-flip are phased out!

    My contract with cingular ends on 6/22/05, if i wanted to puchase the s710a would the promotion apply to existing customers ? Or it only applies to new customers only ?

    Is there anyway around this policy ?

    Give it a couple of months, it'll be somewhat "affordable"

    great phone, amazing camera, WAAAAAY overpriced.

    doesn't even have a full java browser, so you're stuck with WAP sites or a 3rd party browser :ugh:

    The cingular firmware is crap.
