1. WAV file format
2. Created with filter PCM, any Hz and/or bit rate, mono or stereo (filter MPEG-layer 3 didn't work). I used VLC and did a 26 second clip at 64 kb/s to get under the file size limit
3. There seems te be no limit in length of time of the sound
4. Filesize limit of approximately 5 mb.
5. Must be put in the Windows folder

DISCLAIMER: I believe you will lose the DRM for any tracks you have downloaded (I'm not sure if this only applies to rhapsody..so be warned...but it doesn't bother me as I only use rhapsody). I highly recommend burning the tracks first (if at all possible).
- First, verify you are set to download tracks first (duh...I of course did this before contacting support, but they mentioned it so I thought I would too as it must happen). Go to Tools -> Preferences --> My Library
- If you still can't download, do the following
1. Close Rhapsody
2. Click on windows button and click Run
3. type %windir%\system32\ and click ok
4. Find the mcs.rma file and delete it
- If you are still unable to download files, follow the steps outlined here --> Link. I had to do the one where you renamed the DRM folder (then magically I could download files again).
Let's start with the good points:
- You can charge it with a computer via a standard usb cable. (Awesome for charging it at work without having to buy another power cord).
- Synching the phone's data with a computer. This is awesome.
- The sheer amount of programs (a lot free) available for windows mobile
- Comes with all kinds of adapters (usb & headphone splitter and a 2-usb splitter)
- Internet explorer mostly works (don't try to open really intense websites though as it will totally freeze your phone...same goes for really large word docs...or pasting from internet explorer into word).
- Very easy to sync with an exchange server for email and calendar.
- Decent camera (panaramic mode is really cool)
- Bubble Breaker is very addicting
- Wi-Fi connectivity
- You can use the phone as a modem for your computer...very cool...as long as you don't mind the connection speed.
- Runs Windows Mobile 6 Professional
- Runs Windows Mobile. While not the greatest software, it still outweighs most of the competitors
- The splitter for headphones uses the small headphone jack (not a "normal" sized jack)
- Phone seems a bit sluggish at times
- Not really usable without a stylus (as far as the touchscreen). This is where the below Spb Mobile Shell comes in to save the day though (see below).
- The keypad takes some getting used to as there are not any "spaces" between the keys. It's really easy to hit the wrong keys with my fat fingers.
- When going to use live messenger, it makes you add all of your "contacts" from your hotmail account to your phone's contacts. VERY ANNOYING. I don't really want all of those in my phone, so I had to setup a new email account just to avoid adding all kinds of unneeded contacts to my phone's phone book.
- Price (I believe it's like $250).
- Doesn't come with a JVM already installed (which you pretty much have to have to run half the programs out there).
- Haven't heard of any plans by US Cellular to update to Windows Mobile 6.1. If they don't they may lose my business next time around though as this is pretty much a "free" update to Windows Mobile 6 users, but the way I understand it your service provider must still provide it to you (I think both Sprint and Verizon are updating their PPC-6800 based phones for their customers).
- Data transfer rate is relatively slow (I only get around 80 kb/s).
- Not enough program memory
- KeyPass PPC (and the desktop version. I sync my password databases between the two). What I did for this is put the key file on the phone itself and the actual password database on the storage card. This way if the storage card is ever lost or stolen, there is pretty much no way anyone can open your passwords file.

Crush or Flush is a fun, safe, and easy way to meet people, chat, and stay in contact with friends using your cell phone or your computer (PC or Mac). Getting started is a no-brainer. First, upload your face pic, add a description, and create some tags that describe who you are (ex. booty shaking, being awesome, or kung fu master). Get creative, express yourself. Second, let us know if you are looking for a woman, a man (or both). That’s it, you’re profile is done and you can start Crushin’ and Flushin’ people.
You browse people by gender, age, location, and interest (tags). If you find someone you like ‘crush’ them. If not, ‘flush’ them. Don’t worry… they’ll never know you flushed them so no hard feelings. If you Crush someone and they Crush you back… that’s called a Mutual Crush. You’ll both get a text message letting you know that you both like each other. You can then text chat without giving up any of your personal info. No one ever gets your real name, cell phone number, or e-mail address. Later on, if you want to exchange digits on your own, that’s your deal. Ball’s always in your court.

H.Res.1120 Supports the establishment of an NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision Championship playoff system in the interest of fairness and to bring parity to all NCAA teams.Why does congress seem to like to worry about sporting events instead of..oh...say the economy, or gas prices....

"Some people see things as they are and say why? I dream things that never were and say why not? When I took this job I said why not Iowa State? Why not winning? Why not bowl games? Why not sellouts? Why not national respect? Why not us? Why not here? Why not the Cyclone family?"
