Re: Camera and Saving Photos

Are you sure you just aren't looking in the wrong place? On OS5 or earlier the pics were saved in the "pictures" folder. On OS6, they are saved in the "camera" folder.

Trackpad is way better IMO. I think they went with this A) because of the dust issue around the trackball and B) to get to something a little like a lot of the "touch" phones. I got used to it in a...

Re: Brand new TMobile 9780 - OS6 Factory Install - Why so SLUGGISH???

No, I was actually looking for that style. However, I thought the theme was a little sloppy. The alarm notification was cut off on the bottom right side of the screen. Still exploring.
