    doing it online is safer cuz even now not all the reps know about SERO so its possible that you might get a bad rep...........its also not uncommon for reps to mess up SERO orders.......codes not added.......various things charged that shouldnt be charged......yhadda yhadda yhadda...........just order by the internet.........and call and ask the questions in your 30-Day trial period........if you dont like what you hear........mail it all back

    I would order online.

    Many people have to ask for the unlimited text messaging to be added. I know that is what happened to me. I ordered by phone (they did not have online ordering then, or else I would have ordered online so I could have a copy of everything and proof of what I agreed to/what plan options I had) and they did not add unlimited text to my account. I just emailed eCare (during the 30-day trial period, of course) after I realized this error and they corrected the problem and gave me unlimited text.

    yes but back when you had to cal in was the period of time where they were switching from the InPhonic system to their own site......now the whole process is streamlined and very rarely are they messed up

    nope i wouldnt think so..............Blackberrys and SmartPhones dont get it cuz PictureMail is software thats part of Sprint's own firmware and they dont put their own firmware on the SmartPhones or blackberrys they just alter the OEM software

    That sucks I was hoping they did because I was going to go with the Mogul. Good thing I have not ordered yet, now I guess I need to find a different phone now.

    now im not sure of one thing though.............Sprint Picture Mail gets you a specific email address for people who want to send pictures to you from their computers..........

    10digitnumber@pm.sprint.com

    will that email address still work.........not really sure because they might have fixed that problem.........but they also give every customer a Sprint email address

    visionusername@sprintpcs.com

    your vision user name becing a username that you pick during the activation or purchase process i think and if you dont pick one its prolli just your phone number

    I know if I were to take a picture with my current phone and send it to an e-mail it would use the 10 digit phone #@alltel.com

    There's a very simple cab hack that installs picmail on all of the pda's - I've used it on my 6700 and now on the Touch and it works fine. Check out the forums at PPCGeeks.com for the hack. - sheureka

    Have you played around with the Touch at all? This is a little OT - but here's the big difference for me - loaded with exactly the same programs the Mogul would have about 15MB of storage and 7MB of program memory free - and the Touch has 80MB of storage and 50MB of program memory free. And if I want to do some serious writing or editing I use a Stowaway BT keyboard and mouse (serious wow factor in coffee shops and airports).

    And do you really have those Motorola's? They don't have keyboards, do they? - sheureka

    From my understanding SmArTeStChIlD421 means that he would be unable to use the touch as good or better because the lack of an actual keyboard other then the touch screen. What if you had to quickly respond to a text answering a question or two while on the move are you going to stop and whip out the Stowaway BT? I mean not to start anything just curious.
