I like to write, alot.
However I don't talk much.

My cirent cell phone does all i need, its pretty basic with voice mail and free Michal Knighets and Weekend Warriors (:P) but if it had a Notepad function id be in heavy.

Are they any smartphone other there with notepads (that i can export to a PC) and reasonable, plan. I really don't need much beyond "can you hear me now" and "notepad"

For someone that likes to write a lot, you sure can't spell or use proper grammar and punctuation for shit.

Anyway, you might want to consider a Palm Treo.

I've got both a Palm Treo 680 and a Blackberry 8830, they both have notepad functions, but everything you write in the Palm Treo 680 will also pop out in your computer everytime you sync it. I've yet to figure out how to get my memos out of the Blackberry Desktop manager.

They're pretty cheap now, and with a 2 year agreement you might be about to get a free refurbished unit.

Is that what that was? SMS? Well now, it all makes sense.


To the OP, any smart-phone with the Windows platform has 'notepad' integration.

It imports into Palm Desktop which is like Palm's version of Outlook. From there it can be cut n pasted into any application.

I finally discovered that memos written on the Blackberry are found under "Notes" in Outlook. It also can be cut n pasted into any app from there.

Really?

The computer that syncs with my 680 is still using Outlook Express and not Outlook so I wasn't aware the Treo also talks to Outlook.

of course there always the option of typing out your notes in an email and just emailing them to yourself, if you want a quick work around anyway.

LOL

Why not just get a pad of paper and a pencil? Emailing on phones is bloody expensive, unless you have an "unlimited" plan.

did you know that sending 1mb of text messages would cost the average person about $1500 at 15 cents a text? and now that some companies have implemented the "you pay to RECIEVE a text" it now costs somewhere around $3000. sorry to sidetrack the thread.... [/rant]

Oh hell yes it does. I was on one for 2 years and wouldn't have been able to survive without a complete sync to Outlook. It syncs email, calendar, tasks, contacts, and notes. The whole shibang, mang. It does convert emails to standard text from html though. That really pissed me off. Thank god the iPhone doesn't do that.

Bell does it (i live in Ontario)

at 160 characters a text, 160 bytes per text.

160 bytes X 6400= 1024000.

Therefore, 6400 texts at 160 characters eash makes for roughly 1mb of data

6400 times 0.15 cents per text makes for 960$ and if you have to pay for incoming texts,

960X2=$1920

thats for a FULL text (160 characters), now think of how much you're getting ripped off for sending "hey!" (4 characters) or "how are you?" (11 characters).

sorry, i have alot of free time :P and i disslike text meaasging... next we learn about how much it accually costs the companies for you to text your friends... haha
