So, after taking back the 8703e and going back to the 7250, disaster struck. Disaster came in the form of a whirling carnival ride, a pretty girl, and centrifugal force. Disaster left with a broken 7250 screen.
After some frustrations in getting a replacement from Verizon, I now have an 8703e in hand. Well, it is actually sitting on the coffee table next to my Mac.
I am not amused, but the fates have intervened and, when I was a child, I ate like a child, I spake like a child, but now that I have grown I must put away those childish things . . . like unreasonable attachments to fading technology.
So, I have an 8703e, let the learning begin!
I wanted to thank every poster for the helpful posts. I am reading over them again, and will likely be posting some other questions as well.
I am also planning on picking up Plazmic in order to see if I can make a theme that will be better suited to my tastes. We'll see.
