View Full Version : Just order a BlackJack. What should I know?

I just placed an order for a blackjack, which should arrive tomorrow. Coming from a Cingular 2125 and before that an SMT5600, is there anything I should look forward to or be aware of?

The BlackJack is a great phone. The battery life is not as good as you might be used to, but it's still do-able. Make sure you get the exteneded battery if you find it's just not enough.

I would be interested to know who OS version you get on your phone. It should be WinMo5, but there was talk that WinMo6 would be pre-loaded on all new BlackJacks starting in July. I haven't heard of that happening yet.

I ordered it as a refurb from cingular for $69. It came with both a standard and extended battery, an is running WM5.

My main use of the BlackJack is to sync with Exchange. So 3G service is not critical to me. When I turn off 3G I find battery life improves quite a bit.:cool:

Yeah, I'm in a GSM only market, so no sense even having that feature enabled around here.
