Take some pics at the highest/best resolution!

Anyone who knows anything about phones knows american phones all suck. No exception compared to Japanese phones. Thats why I just take the free phone, I don't really care.

The irony is you can't use the phone to take pictures of your beautiful new phone.

Yes.
The SideKick II's keyboard is still king. I miss it, along with it's AOL IM and email features.

There will always be a place in my heard for the SKII ;)

nice phone cheapy, thats 1 funny pic of the 360 coupons at TRU. Seems like they are keeping the microsoft sales on the dl so they can push the "sony" ps3's out the door. Its a conspiracy I tell you!

Bro, what store are those airsoft guns in? Thats not the TRU is it? Friggin sweet if they are.

As affordable as the phones may be, Japan is still debatably the most expensive place in the world to live. I both envy and don't envy.

Do all Japanese carry around unwieldy phones? I was sitting in the library one night and there was this girl talking into her phone in some asian language. The phone, unfolded, must have been larger than any wired landline receiver I've ever used. Folded up, it was thicker and longer than my GBA (not wider, tho). Just curious if that's the norm, or if people carry around the tiny phone I'm using with no bells or whistles.

sorry Cheapy, but I'd rather use my sleek black iPod to listen to my music and my sleek black Motorola RAZR to talk to people, than to use a phone that cant hold as much music and IMO, STILL DOESNT look as purdy as a RAZR, just because it manages to fit in a bunch of features with lower capabilities. Give me a phone that could have a chance at holding ALL my music and I'll give this kind of overdone convergence a chance. Till then, sorry, the Motorola RAZR (at least with the software hack that lets you take video) is mobile phone perfection.

I bought it for the 3 megapixel camera with optical zoom, not for the music capabilites.
How's that 1 megapixel camera in the Razor?
Your pockets must be pretty full with your camera, phone and iPod ;)

Both mine and Mrs. Cheapy's phone were less than $100US combined.

No, most of their phones are really small. My phone is pretty big, likely because of the camera with optical zoom. They don't even sell SideKicks/Blackberrys/Palm phones, likely because they are considered too large.
Most Japanese seem to have very small phones that are probably a few years more advanced than the best phones sold in the USA.

The phones are very cheap when you get a plan.

They just got these in by me. Free after rebate. Includes back brace. :D
