I have a sprint phone that is older than the hills and am interested in purchasing a new phone for my sprint plan. I simply wanted a phone where I could transfer some colour jpgs, keep then on the phone, as one stores addresses on a phone, and be able to access the photos. That's it. I thought the Samsung A500 would do the trick but after many trips to the sprint stores and many calls to Sprint's 800 #, no luck. Basically what the vision plan does is give you an account to store photos on - and this 'vault' as they call it, requires you to actually phone to access (and use up your bandwidth space). I thought that the A500 could store, say, 20 little photos which once you downloaded to your phone, could be accessed instantly. Just like if you access your address list on your phone, you are not using minutes. Not according to Sprint. Let's say you want to show a photo of your kid off to a friend. You have to dial the sprintpcs #, to get to your vault to actually look at the photo !! EACH time you want to see a photo will cost you your bandwidth minutes, According to the seemingly most knowledgeable Sprint rep I talked to, accessing a photo 20 times in a month will already use up your free 2MB !! He said he was certain of this. Total rip-off...but please someone correct me if I am wrong. Can anyone please recommend a phone where I can store photos on the phone ? or do I have to get a pda-phone ? many thanks.
