For the past year or so, I’ve been reading about the current generation of phones with built in cameras, support for wireless Internet access, and all sorts of other nifty goodies. When it came time to upgrade my wireless service, I went to Cingular and picked up a Sony Ericsson T616 phone. I also signed up for GPRS service so I could check my email using my phone or whatever. Unfortunately, since I signed up, I’ve had nothing but problems. I’m dying to try out the GPRS service, but it took them nearly a week to get my account configured properly, and now that it’s set up, it looks like the GPRS coverage doesn’t include my home. So, while I wanted to write up a cool review of what it’s like to be on the wireless Internet, instead I’m whining about bad service. That’s always how it seems to go. One thing I can say is that the phone itself is very nice, I can only imagine how nice it would be if I could get news, sports, and weather regardless of where I happened to be.
