nothing, especially in places where cell phone providers typically do
not ALLOW free content on phones.

about a year ago. I can copy anything onto a little card and then slip
that into the phone and put it wherever I wat in the phone. I can use
ringtones and whatever. My friend just got the updated version
recently and I tried to give her some of my ringtones (since when you
replace a phone you lose all your old ringtones) but the copy feature
was not available. That's gotta be criminal, not letting you use a
feature already in the machine, to keep you from using your own stuff?
