    So im looking at my messages and i get a long one. After like 100 characters or something it cuts it off and replaces it with ... And then i have to click on it to see the rest. Is there any way to take this off in the settings?

    And my second question, my phone doesnt connect to my computer right. I plugged it in, it said it didnt have the right software or something, so i went and downloaded the the Vista 64 bit thing thats stickied on here. I plug it in, and the "you have the wrong software" thing was gone, but nothing else happpened. The screen says its connected and it vibrates and i hear the noise thru the computer, so what am i doing wrong. I read somewhere that you pull down the little bar at the top and hit dock or something like that. I cant do that. If i can pull it down theres no buttons to hit. Can someone walk me thru this process? FIXED

    To connect to your computer go to:

    settings > applications > usb settings > select "mass storage"

    After you do this, assuming you have the right drivers installed on your computer, you will get the notification in the notification bar. Click the notification and select mount, your computer should then find your phone.

    For your message issue, I guess you are talking about SMS. There is a character limit, so if your messages are to big, email is a better option.

    that worked. Thanks.

    Woops, i should have clarified. Yes, i was talking about SMS. So i cant tell it to show the whole text in the settings somewhere?
