    I currently bought myself two wafers and connected to the bluetooth from my PC. It doesn't look like there is any way to transfer pictures, music, or print from my wafer to my pc. Also when connecting the two phones via bluetooth I don't see any way to send anything like a picture or music to bluetooth.

    When I had samsung t619 on t-mobile I could send things to bluetooth.

    1) Does anyone have any hints how to do these things? Or do I have to buy a USB cable to put music on my phone.

    2) Are there any good Alltel phones with at least 1.3 megapixel camera, the ability to play mp3's, and fairly robust bluetooth capabilities? Oh and GPS would be nice too, I love telenav...

    I need to decide quickly if I want to keep these phones or trade them in for better.

    Thanks,

    For Alltel, currently I would say the Motorola e815 is probably your best bet... then the Motorola RAZR V3m. The V3m is being phased out soon to make room for the VGA camera, non EV-DO RAZR V3a and the V9m RAZR2 which should be out before the end of the year.

    The e815 is the one I could get, though.

    And I'm not just Motorola biased (though I am a little) but only Motorola phones with Alltel allow OBEX (object exchange) through Bluetooth.

    Hope this helps.

    The KRZR is good as well.

    Ok,

    Which of the motorola phones has the best apps, the easiest texting (I've never owned a motorola but I heard they don't have T9), and the ability to use Telenav.

    I guess I really miss my T-619 on T-mobile but their rural coverage just sucks really bad. Alltel strips out so many features on these phones it is rediculous.

    I went to m.youtube.com yesterday and couldn't even view the 3gp videos they have on there. Has anyone been able to view these on alltel?

    Ooops, yeah, I should have mentioned that. In my opinion, the top three Bluetooth handsets available from Alltel are ranked thusly:

    I. Motorola e815
    II. Motorola K1m KRZR
    III. Motorola V3m RAZR

    Good catch, strunke, I can't believe I forgot the KRZR.:rolleyes:

    I'm really leaning towards the LG AX8600 after learning that it works with Telenav, can use a larger battery, call quality is supposed to be excellent (and in my experience, LG's usually have good call quality).

    Also I quizzed several alltel employees about customer satisfaction on various phones.

    I guess I'll just get a data cable instead of bluetooth to try to transfer my files onto it and synch with contacts etc.

    No, the Motorola phones use iTap predictive text, which I prefer but the Motorola RAZR V3m is able to use TeleNav. The BlackBerry 8703e, LG AX8600, Motorola V3m, Samsung u520 and Samsung r510 Wafer are all compatible with TeleNav because they all have GPS and EV-DO.

    The Motorola V3a will apparently be able to use TeleNav as well but it is 1xRTT only so it will be sloooooooooooow TeleNav. :)

    Thanks for all the information....

    The razr is just out of my price reach so I am down to 3:

    LG AX8600
    Motorola e815
    Sumsung u520

    Those three are in my price range.

    I want the most flexibility in web browsing, uploading mp3's (and set as ringer if possible), and MMS/texting capabilities.

    I gave up on the bluetooth thing when I realize most of alltel's phones suck for bluetooth....but that does tilt me in the motorola's direction.

    Can anyone view videos on their phones from m.youtube.com ?

    Well the Razr V3m is only 29.99 after the rebate! The U520 is 69.99 after rebate.
