    im seriously considering returning my zune and my MP3/AUX/CD deck for my truck tomorrow.. heres my case.

    things about the zune that are pissing me off; it doesnt show up as another drive, i cant just drag and drop files onto it. i have to put them in the zune folder on my computer then start the zune program and then try to find them in the mess of files then copy them from the program. if i wanted to put a video on it has to be MP4 which is what the PSP uses.. the PSP has a bigger screen and speakers so if im gonna watch video its gonna be on the PSP, same rule applys to the pictures. thus leaving it soley as a MP3 player.

    its a good MP3 player, it plays MP3s and it sounds good. but do i need 30gb? ive used 22gb so far and ive transfered almost all my music on it, but when im using it i typically just put in on shuffle and skip the songs i dont reconize or dont like, thus asking the question "if your not ever gonna listen to that song why have it on there" .. "in case someone i know wants to listen to it??" thats dumb so if i cut all thoughs songs out thats like 10gbs of songs that i actually wanna listen to that im shuffling which is what i already do with my PSP and my phone, thus asking another question.. do i basiclly have 3 of the same thing?

    another factor is im pretty much completly sold on the Samsung Glyde phone http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8jqjw4TKeY and my contract is up on june 11 so ill have a $50 coupon on june 11 basicaly.

    it has an MP3 player and it supports up to 8gb mircoSD cards.

    here is a 8gb mircoSD for about $40
    http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-microSDHC-Card-SDSDQ-8192-Package/dp/B0012Y2LLE/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=12118623 02&sr=8-3

    with my new every 2 i can get this phone for about $150 plus the card were at $200, i spend about $300 on the zune and the cd deck for my truck(that i have yet to install and i dont think i will) if i return those and got the phone and the card i will have 100 bucks back. and i would be left with a 4gb PSP and 8gb mp3 phone?

    so am i being dumb and i should just keep the zune?
    should use the PSP for videos , pix and games get the phone for MP3?
    should get an 80gb ipod and keep my phone i have?
    should i over to raleys and get more arnold palmer iced tea/lemonade?
    should i... ??

    im at a loss.. :hs: i have an idea im strongly leading towards i just need someone elses feedback before i pull the trigger, which is gonna be tomorrow or the day after...

    thanks

    sincerily

    the confused :sadwavey:

    All will be well and good until you realize your phone is ALWAYS dead because you used all your battery on listening to music. Seriously, think about how bad cell phone battery life is, now imagine it at least twice as bad. It's worth sacrificing pocket space, believe me.

    actually the battery in the phone i have now isnt that bad (samsung A930) if i come into work at 5am i can listen to it till we open at 8 and i still have atleast half a battery and it will get me though the rest of the day but i also have a phone charger at work so i could charge it on my breaks.. ontop of that the new phone im lookin at is suppose to ahve a lot better battery then this one?

    so i donno if thats really a factor :dunno:
