    i was wondering, since the v551 has EDGE capabilities, is it possible to stream video from the web with this phone? i now they are comming out with short newscasts and sports hilites, so can these be seen on the v551?

    If I remember correctly, the V551 does not have video capability, or if it does it is limited. The one phone I know Cingular carries with this ability is the Nokia 6620. As fast as EDGE is, it is not yet capable of doing the video capability you are looking for. EDGE is still basically 2.5G. When Cingular upgrades to UMTS or HSPDA 3G speeds, you will be able to find phones with greater streaming video capability.

    Cingular does have MobiTV available for the Nokia 6620, though I do not know what the quality is compared to Verizon's EV-DO 3G high speed data network. MobiTV does offer some of the features you are looking for, though.
