Yeah they launched it and broke it. Who thought web browsing in a portrait mode was better than landscape mode. I mean honestly, who would want to use a full qwerty keyboard to browse or reply to emails anyways.

A VISITOR FROM THE PAST
I had a dream the other night, I didn’t understand,
A figure walking through the mist, with flintlock in his hand.
His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed.
He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low he said:
“We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty.
We wrote the constitution as a shield from tyranny.
For future generations, this legacy we gave.
In this land of the free, and home of the brave.”
“The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you’d always keep.
But tyrants labored endlessly, while your parents were asleep.
Your freedoms gone, your courage lost, you’re no more than a slave,
In this land of the free, and home of the brave.”
“You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun.
Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.
On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent,
Although, you have no voice in choosing, how the money’s spent.”
“Your children must attend a school that doesn’t educate,
Your christian values can’t be taught, according to the state.
You read about the current news, in a regulated press,
You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the I.R.S.”
“Your money is no longer made of silver or of gold.
You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled.
You pay for crimes that make our nation turn from God in shame,
You’ve taken Satan’s number, as you’ve traded in your name.”
“You’ve given government control, to those who do you harm,
So they can padlock your churches and steal the family farm.
And keep our country deep in debt, put men of God in jail.
Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail.”
“Your public servants don’t uphold the solemn oath they’ve sworn,
Your daughters visit doctors so their children won’t be born.
Your leaders ship their artillery, and guns to foreign shores,
and send your sons to slaughter, fighting other peoples wars.”
“Can you regain the freedom, for which I fought and died,
Or don’t you have the courage, or the faith to stand with pride?
Are there no more values, for which you’ll fight to save?
Or do you wish your children, to live in fear and be a slave?”
“Sons of the republic, arise and take a stand!
Defend the constitution, the supreme law of the land.
Preserve our great republic, and each God-given right,
and pray to God to keep the torch of freedom burning bright.”
As I awoke, he vanished in the mist from which he came,
His words were true, we are not free, we have ourselves to blame.
For even now as tyrants, trample each God-given right.
We only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight.
If he stood by your bedside, in a dream, while you’re asleep,
And wondered what remained of rights he fought to keep.
What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave,
Is this still the land of the free, and the home of the brave??????

I have the new Samsung U740 Double-Flip from Bell and I LOVE it!! It has everything I need in one VERY thin, and attractive phone. I am what you would call a "phone person", and this one - out of the other 8 phones i've had, takes the cake!! I'm thrilled with it and encourage anyone who's looking to change their phone or get one for the first time to get this one. Yes its pricey but definitely worth it!

The phone should come with a USB Cable. What you need to do is go into the media player menu and it should prompt you to create a folder called "media." Once done, plug the USB into the computer, and then you have to use the handset to enable the connection (this shuts off phone functions while you are uploading). Once it is enabled, you can copy mp3s from the computer to the Phone - it's really fast. I got a separate little foldout that had this process all on it when I bought mine.
Only complaint with the phone is, as already said, that the browser doesn't work in landscape. Seems like an oversight that should have been corrected.

Rachel and jeff,
Once you connect it to your pc, open your cell phone and go to -->Tools -->Mass Storage -Connect to PC

Then open My Computer and it will be a removable drive, then once your done make sure you press done on your phone before you disconnect. If you need more help email me (go_leafs_go10@hotmail)
