    Q9m Noob!

    Hey guys.
    As you can see, I'm totally new here.
    I am buying a Q9m from someone on Craigslist.

    I am just wondering if there is anything good to know or "secret" I should know about this phone?

    One specific question I have is what does a wifi miniSD card do for the phone? I will not be getting a data plan, so would this allow me to use email and internet without paying for it? Please explain.


    Thanks! And give me any advice that you want.

    From what I understand (Scott explained this to me this morning...)the wifi card enables you to get internet access where there is a wifi hot spot. If you were sitting in my living room, and I gave you the password to access my wireless router, you would be able to log into the internet on your phone.

    You have to be in a wifi area. Starbucks is an example...

    Thanks for the reply. But does that mean that I don't have to pay data charges for browsing the web using wifi?!?

    Thanks! So this includes email too?
    2 more questions: 1, how do I completely stop email notifications of thread replies?
    2, where is the cheapest place I can get one of these cards?

    1.To turn off notifications, go into the "User CP", scroll down to "subscribed threads" and edit your thread options.

    2. Try http://www.newegg.com

    Wow. I can't find the wireless mini SD card on NewEgg.
    Anyone else know where it is for cheap?

    I'm sure there is a thread about it somewhere, but for the registry hacks, such as the password one, how do I get into the phone's registry?

    Thanks again!

    Ok, I just had this chat with Verizon. Are they just dumb or are they actually right for once? And does anyone have personal experience with this?

    Ben: I came across a wireless(wifi) mini SD card that can be used for the Q9m. So my question is if I get this card, will I be able to access the internet and email for free using wifi?
    Whitney: I'll be more than happy to assist you with the phone wifi options
    Whitney: The phone will still have the megabyte charges when being used.
    Whitney: You will need the data package on the account to require no charges.
    Ben: But if I'm just using wifi.....?
    Ben: Why should there be usage?
    Whitney: The phone will have data charges when it is used which is considered when the phone access the web on the phone.

    as explained you HAVE to get a data plan
    one plan is a 'pay as you go plan' they only charge you for data used on THERE network ie verizon

    if you get a wifi card you will NOT be using verizon but the wifi card THUS not being charged

    they will not tell you how to set up the wifi card...search google for a card and there it should come with directions and if not then search here for wifi
    there has been plenty of talk about this

    ok, that helps a lot.
    Thanks. I hope it really works and I don't get charged.

    If I do get charged, I'm blaming it on Verizon's employees.
