    To view movies crisply:

    -- Use Slysoft Clone DVD Mobile and use the "smartphone" option to rip at 320x240.

    -- Use TCPMP and choose "16:9" ratio and "Fullscreen".

    Awesome video.

    Is there any way to mute the phone when you recieve a Text Message. I'm able to mute the phone when someone is calling by touching the JOGGR, but it doesn't work with a Text Message. Thanks in advance.

    I've read somewhere (I can't remember where...) that says if you rip the DVD to your PC resolution first and then change it to 320x240 after, it will give you better quality but ofcourse now you have extra step than straight to 324x240

    how long is your text message tone such that you need to mute it?

    Well its about 10 seconds long. But I've also noticed that if I get multiple texts in rapid succession (which I do because I text a LOT), like 1 Text Message comes in and the song starts. Well if another comes in before the song finishes, it starts playing again with the other one still going. Its not a big problem, it just bugs me. That and sometimes I forget to mute my phone in class and when it goes off, I can't do anything if its a Text Message.

    i don't really think there is a mute for text message sounds since most are really short -- less than 5s
    did you try hitting the end key?
    i'll keep an eye out if there is anything that can do it

    yup, it indicates that the joggr is active
    when you deactivate it, it should cross it out

    if price is a concern, just get the dash
    you could just reflash it later

    Dash: cheaper,Locked

    I plan on using it on cingular so i dont know whats more convient i would request a code but a t-mobile version will be able 410USD vs 470USD for the unbranded version

    Corupt I’m in the same exact position. However I went and purchased the dash from tmobile. Another caveat you need a tmobile account to purchase it from them (get someone who has an account with them already). It's pretty much the same phone as the unbranded (minus the two jogger buttons). A registry edit or any other software (flash cid unlock etc) modification will be available in the future (as we've seen with the jogger reg edits)...iit’spretty much a matter of $, patience and convenience....

    Well if t-mobile dash is $430+tax thats already $450 for a branded/locked dash. the unbranded version is 469+shipping= 480 30.00 more. ive called three stores and they all told me 429.00. if i give them a t-mobile subscribers number will the price go down even if its a prepaid phone number? i have a t-mobile to go account that was for a sidekick

    I payed the full price of 379.99 + tax came to $415.00...damn tmobile is raping customers...well maybe its a franchise things...either or yea if I was in your shoes I would go ahead and get an unbranded model for $30.00 more...I guess its no biggie (like I said depending on your $ situation, patience etc). the only way the price will go down is if you give them a tmobile subscribers # who is willing to upgrade their contract...(the lower price gives you an incentive to extend your contract)
