I am no longer a Verizon customer. I now have a Motorola GSM SLVR. Hooray.
- I was surprised to find that the memory card for the phone is considerably smaller than a penny, and does not look particularly computer-y. If it did not come in a hard plastic case along with a device intended to make it bigger so it would fit into a computer, I would've assumed it was a small random piece of plastic and thrown it away.
- I don't have more than a few numbers entered into it so far, so if you call me before this evening, don't be surprised if I don't immediately know who you are.
- It has far too much bling turned on by default. When I figure out how, I want to get rid of that movie of a butterfly flying, the wacky (but attractive) background, and many other things. I guess modern cell customers have no taste.
- The T-Mobile store initially seemed to have that irritating Christmas music thing going on, but it eventually changed to something less inspiring of murderous rage. This was good.
- From the gal setting up my phone, I finally learned how a totally uninformed American would pronounce Deutsch (she tried to say Deutsch Telekom, the parent company of T-Mobile). It sounded a lot like "douche" (which, in turn, a totally uninformed American would probably pronounce Doo-Shay).
While browsing the BBC website, I saw a link to a Terry Gilliam film that I haven't heard of called Tideland. Anyone seen it? Is it any good?
