    hi,
    so far the phone's been great (except for the part where i always have to swipe to unlock, and then swipe my code). but i have a couple of more noob questions:
    i was able to copy some songs from my itunes library(bought from itunes) to the phone with no problems. i was kinda surprised they played.
    i then tried to copy a movie to the phone (.m4v format) from my itunes library (not purchased from itunes). but for some reason the movie wont play (star trek). i get the error "cannot play video". any idea why i can't watch the movie? do i have to convert it? i simply downloaded the digital copy when i bought the bluray version.

    thanks in advance.

    afaik phone won't play m4v video format.. (although.. it should.. maybe.) you will probably have to convert it. Easiest program i've found to do this is:

    Free iPod Video Converter - Freeware converts DVD AVI MPEG WMV RM to iPod Video

    no bloat, no spy, no shortcuts, just convert.
