I’ve never been a big fan of all the fancy features that the newer cell phones provide and thus haven’t really paid much attention to how this technology has evolved. But I was able to get a great deal on a LG VX7000 camera phone that prompted me to upgrade. On the camera phone front I had become aware of a great site called Text America that allows for real-time posting of camera pics. This is a pretty cool feature that always appealed to me and I have thus setup an account.
Another function that I became attracted to is the ability to connect the phone to my computer via special USB cable to allow for the downloading, editing, and uploading of data to the phone. This includes contacts, wallpaper, photos, ringtones, and calendar information. This ability is provided by a great free open-source program called bitpim that works with many phones.
