    So I've been using the phone for a few days now, and I have a couple questions I hope someone will know the answers to.

    1. Is there a way to set the phone to store the Apps, and App Data, such as contacts, calendar, etc. on the SD card itself. There is hardly any room left on my card and I can't imagine that they would have left that featire out. My old HP iPaq from like 7 years ago did that.

    2. Does anyone know how to use it as a modem? Or can you link to a tutorial on this function?

    3. I just heard of an app that puts fur on your screen like a virtual cat, when you touch the fur, it purrs and vibrates. It actually sounds pretty bizarre, but i gotta see that?

    4. Has anyone figured out how to import contacts manually from a csv file or something stored on the SD card?

    5. Does anyone know how to add a custom ring to the Alarm clock options?

    6. Anyone heard of any news regarding a file browser, ftp, and/or VPN functionality in the neat future?

    Also, has anyone else had problems with the camera lagging a lot. I was trying to take some photos in moderate light, and it took like 4-5 seconds to take the picture and it was really blurry. My Razr took sharper images!

    I really like the phone so far. And it does have a lot of potential. I may even learn Java just to be able to do some extra things...Exciting!

    Thanks for the help.

    please search the forum before starting a thread of questions, many of these have already been answered in other threads.

    Good rule of thumb when you're new to any forum:
    Search, search, search, search for a few days and then, when you can't find what you want, ask.

    Thanks for the help :)

    Search for a few days before you ask? If it takes that long the topic clearly needs to be raised again to make it more simple to find. The more threads out there with the answer, the easier it is on a user to find the answer. If it's ONE thread with the answer and the other 100 where the question is asked get a "use the search" response, how quickly do you imagine they will find their answer?

    Just a reminder, from the Rules thread:

    "Also while the search feature on forums is great, and hopefully will be utilized - if someone comes here and asks a question, either answer it or don't. If you're going to suggest the search feature, be polite about it. Nothing irks me more than when I go to a forum, (and use the search!), then ask a question because I want some one on one with my problem, and get a simple "Use the search." reply."

    Indeed planned. You'll see references to it on various threads :)

    Again, on the to-do list.

    I agree, and when noticed and it makes sense to, mods are to do it. They are also new, and we have a little ways to go - we know. And yes, we will be adding more mods when needed. Also, it certainly doesn't appear "days" was meant to be an exaggeration, but okay!

    It does irk me, you're right. You could answer the question or link them to the correct thread if you're so familiar with the 3-5 you see a day of it.

    Again, on the to-do list. :)

    Ah ha ha, I really do appreciate irony! :p

    I'm just suggesting you help people who are sitting here looking for help, if you know the answer. Let them search in the meantime if they want to speed things up for themselves. But if you're not here to help and be a part of the community, why be here at all?

    Thanks for the well thought out reply. I can appreciate that over where this could have gone with a different personality.

    :)

    pestilance, thanks for the informative answer, and what's wrong with a little furrr fetish...hahaha:p...i couldn't find it, what's it called...my girlfriend is harassing me.:eek:

    guys, i didn't mean to create such controversy. the reality is that i did search a few terms and found nothing, try searching "vpn" and the search omits the term "vpn." The irony is that if the forum used a google search bar then I probably would have found answers easy.

    Since the phone is so new, and things are changing at such a dramatic pace, we will be getting a lot of same questions until the information gets disseminated a little more. So if you don't like it, just tune out, man and chill out. Plus, the answers people given today, may not be valid tomorrow, so there still is a need for having up to date answers.

    But I like the idea of the newb FAQ, that could be updated easier and provide a good reference.

    Thanks the admins and mods for the great forum!!! As i learn more, will be able to contribute more...

    It's no biggie, it's cool I promise.

    Punk and I hashed it out right quick, that's okay. He made good points, and if you'll see the announcement at the top of each forum - he helped to get the ball on the roll, and I do appreciate it.

    :)

    It's under apps (not games) for some reason and it's called Krystle II.

    Took me a while to find it again.

    That is way more bizarre than it sounded, they could have picked an animal slightly less mangy. and maybe animated it a little. nevertheless, good for a laugh.
