FUSIC Update

Okay, its been a month. And, Cake has reminded me to actually USE my blog, so I guess I can write up something about how my phone sucks.

The only problem is that it is still freakin great! I used it as the sole source of music on the five hour drive to Montreal a couple of weeks ago. No battery issues. No transmission issues. It is a bit of a pain in the butt to change that station that the phone is transmitting on, but I can live with that.

I have purchased the 1GB card that I said I was going to, and have more than a dozen albums on there. I also just read an article that they released a 2GB version of the same memory card. I figure I'll wait for the 10GB or 20GB version of the card before I get a new one, though.

I've figured out some of the fun stuff like videos for screensavers, and custom images for contacts, etc. And in doing so, I've determined that the camera portion of this phone does indeed suck. But I would be more pissed if my phone took better pictures than my camera!

The volume of the phone when talking is outstanding. Battery life is great. Customizable navigation and menus are pretty good.

The other thing that sucks is the volume level of the media player. If I'm trying to play music from my phone, it will NOT get loud. But, again, I would be more pissed if my phone was a better stereo than my stereo!

EZ Tip Calculator is WAY cool. Alarm clocks and scheduling looks good, but haven't actually used it. Reception is good. Using it with headphones is outstanding.

So, to sum up:
The phone rocks. Most everything about it is as good or better than expected.
Two things about the phone suck:
1)The camera (does not SUCK during day, but not great either. REALLY SUCKS at night.)
2)The speaker amplifier
In response to both sucky things, I must scream "It's a Fn phone!!"

So, I am also still the only person I have seen with my phone. I have one friend that is considering getting one. But I don't want anyone to get one, because I still like being the cool kid basking in the ooo-aaaah factor.
