Day 14 With the Nokia 6682 and Cingular


Well well. I am not in the best of moods. After working on an important several paragraph email for 30 minutes this morning on the train, I have made my decision to turn in my Nokia 6682 phone in the next few days. Yeah, I am not even going to see the full 30 day trial. Perhaps at this point you are asking yourself…30 minutes on one email? Yeah, that is right. Without a QWERTY keyboard…that is what you get. So at the 30 minute mark…my phone decides to freeze. Freeze hard so I am forced to restart, and lose my message. This is not the first time the “messaging” features have caused havoc, but it will be the last. As I am writing this, I am thinking I will got to Cingular next week and turn my phone in….and wait for the Treo 700p. I am a heavy email user, as I have 45 minutes on the train each morning and night. I need to be able to reliably send and receive email. The email interface on the Nokia 6682 is horrible…and I miss my Treo stylus and touch screen. Even though I have wild buzzing noises when I call…at least I can get some work done. Now…will Cingular screw me into a contract for switching back? That is the question.

I finally got rid of the Nokia 6682. Even though I have issues with my Treo, the second I had to type in my password to access the phone, using the QWERTY keyboard…I made peace with my Treo. So far, so good with my Treo re-activation. I had some word with Customer Service yesterday about […]



Ahh yes…another Thanksgiving has come and gone. Thanksgiving would not be complete without some stuffing balls, some sort of family disfunction and, James Bond. This year was no exception. The stuffing balls were amazing, once again. Not really sure what to say about the family dysfunction…there is always something in the air…but at least I […]
