I know, I know, that was only funny for Steve, the lady at Rogers who I talked to when I got this thing, and me, but that’s never stopped me before, hahah.
Remember when I jumped up and down about Rogers’s new phone that you could buy with the Talks software already installed? Well, guess who went and bought one? Yipper, that would be me, and I’m pretty damn impressed with it. I’ve already set my own ringtone, set the clock, put some contacts in the contacts directory, learned a whole bunch of the Talks functions, can check the battery level and signal strength…and I have much, much more to learn.
First off, to anyone who wants to buy one of these, if you choose to call rogers and buy it through there, be very very sure that the rep knows you want the Nokia 6682RVI, which is Rogers’s cute name for the bundle with Talks. They will say they don’t see such a thing, and try to just sell you the Nokia 6682, but you don’t want that. So make sure they find it.
The box came with some pretty cool stuff in it. There was a Talks Manual in mp3 and word format, a little braille sheet that explained that the phone had Talks preinstalled and said the formats the user’s manual was in, and a whole bunch of cool accessories. There was a headset, a USB cable, another cable that I haven’t the foggiest clue what it does, a 64-mb memory card, a funky wrist strap, some cool Nokia software, and of course the battery and charger and such.
It is so nice to be able to monkey with my own phone settings. I was able to set the clock, the ringtone, see how much battery power I had left, turn on training mode so I could mess with stuff without it doing anything, and all in the first night of having it. Now I just have to figure out who I can send a thank you letter to for going ahead with this. God I’m going to be known as the thank you blink before too long, hahahaha.
