Hi Gang,

I'm switching from Sprint and am considering the S710. I was wondering
if any of you have any comments on the following:

1) I've read opinions that say the menus are not very responsive, is
there anyone else who has noticed this?
2) I asked a salesdroid how easy it was to import phone numbers to the
phone. I mentioned that I had a PDA (without mentioning what type) and
he said that the S710 will import from anything with an IR port. Is
that true? Can the S710 sync contacts from Outlook through the USB
cable?
3) Out of curiosity, I asked the same salesdroid why Cingular supports
AOL and Yahoo! instant messaging but not MSN. He said MSN support is
possible, is that true?
4) The Cingular site says that it doesn't have a vibrate feature, that
can't be true can it?


That's about all I have for now, thanks in advance!
Jeff

I've had mine for a few months. The menu response time seems OK to me.

I use a program called DataPilot. It came with the required USB cables for
practically every cell phone. It will sync Outlook calendar and, though I
haven't tried it, Outlook contacts too.

Don't know. Don't care.

It vibrates.
