hello all. i am considering buying the magic, but a few questions, and if some one could help that would be fantastic. i am looking to buy the device here in japan from DoCoMo, as they are the only ones offering it. so the main questions are; 1) can the gps reciever work without accessing the 3g network for internet service? ie, is there an app that will force it to work as a stand alone gps reciever to work with google maps. ie, no cost. 2) are there options to set the device to choose from wireless networks using the wifi reciever as opposed to using the internet through the service provider when and if possible?? the way it works here is in japan, i have to subscribe to a service called mopera for all internet related things. so, for my messaging system, it will be an email address that is linked to my phone. in japan thats how messaging works, its all email addresses. there is no sms. anyways, there is a cost for this dependant on how much is written. so both messaging and accessing the net drive up data packets, and thus cost, which i want to avoid. that being the case i will primarly be using my gmail address, and would like it to only send messages through wifi, free, and was just wondering if there were settings or functions to force it to only send messages when connected via wifi, and not to just send the message through the carriers internet access when i press send or something. if anyone can help with this that would be great. everything else on the device looks fine and what i need. maybe if someone knows though, how is viewing pdf files on the device? do you have to scroll at all to read from side to side??? that would be very good to know. ok cool, thank you everyone for the input, MUCH appreciated!!
