To have a phone that would give me always on internet would be so cool, I use the pc a lot at home, broadband from day 1 nearly, and have a number of contacts in MS messenger, I use email all the time from home, and surf the web all the time. I am a keen photographer, but haven't yet bought a fully fledged digital still camera, but do have a Sony DV camera for video work.
So, can I take a pic with the SPV, and send it via email to my own or other email address? Is the messenger service always on as soon as you turn on in the morning? Can you hide your status as you can on a pc?
Can my wife send me an email from the home pc to me at my mobile, is that just a case of me collecting my email as normal, but using the phone to do it instead of the pc? ( I know I can have the server at BT keep a copy of the message )
On the Office side of things, I was about to buy the new Sony PDA, the cheap one, for simple tasks like contact management, tasks and to do list, which I have started to also do on my pc via OUTLOOK. Will the SPV be able to uplug from its cradle, and have that info with it automatically syncronised every night?
There was one post saying about checking email automatically after a set time, say every 30 minutes, is this possible?
Sorry for all the questions, but buying this could save me from paying through the nose for a PDA and a new phone, and is a great price.
I have just taken up a new post in management at work, hence the need for some real data organisation, so it will be useful, and not just a toy.
Finally, as I have never had a phone on contract before, and was looking at the cheapest option, which is the TALK 30 PLAN, I presume I get 30 minutes of free calls a month, then have to pay the advertised tariff for everything after that. And also it costs £6 a month for up to 10mb of data via GPRS, yes?
I am still trying to justify the £15 + £6 it will cost me every month.
Thanks for your help, and I hope with your advice I will become an owner as well as a poster,
