    I've been adding cards to my Key Ring app (you scan your store discount cards into it; I've entered my gym card as well), but I haven't had any success yet in having the card successfully read from the phone by the cashiers at the stores.
    Has anyone had any luck with it?

    Once?
    That doesn't sound like much of an endorsement...

    Damn - I just tried it again, using your suggestion, and it still didn't work. There was a long line of disgruntled people waiting, so I didn't take any more time experimenting. The cashier even tried punching the numbers in from the card, and that didn't work either. This was at a Duane Reade store (it's a drug store chain in NYC).

    I'm looking to trim down on my apps. Like a lot of folks, I loaded up when I first got the device, and now I'm seeing which ones I want to unload to free up some internal memory. Looks like this one is gonna make the list...

    I used mine at Kroger, petsmart and blockbuster just this past weekend with no problems. I think the key (no pun intended) is to have them scan it with the little gun and not the regular scanner thing.

    That's what they were using - the little gun. I don't get it. I guess I have to experiment some more with the brightness. It's not like it's a huge memory hog, anyway. I just uninstalled my Documents to Go - it was taking up over 7MB, and it didn't add any functionality over the Quickoffice app that came with the device.
