The 3310 is what you want, costs peanuts, and is just a phone. I got mine for £35

Ironically, here in the UK, a T-Mobile subsidary is teaming up with the scum-sucking wannabe monopoly easyGroup to launch a no-thrills mobile service…

i have one of the nextel phones. I don’t know about everybody else’s walkie-talkie phones, but all of the different models we use at work have the ability to turn the loudspeaker part off, and have the walkie talkie traffic go through the earpiece…

Corporations, while you are addressing simple, basic phone service, why don’t you do the same for internet service? I don’t want your crappy e-mail, news server, web site, filtering, firewall, or any other service. I just want an IP for a good price. Better yet, combine the two into one bill for $20/ month, OK?

For an extra $20 bucks a month you can experience the bliss that is high speed internet. AKA Magic internet box. At least for me, all they do is give you a nice shiney box with lights and you plug it in then ZOOM you’re surfing the web. I had a family member who was silly enough to get AOL Broadband. Normally I hate being asked about technology purchases when my family is involved (I feel somehow responsible if either something goes wrong or they dislike any feature that I suggested), but in this case I nearly backhanded my sister for purchasing what turns out to be the biggest steaming pile of crap on the face of this planet. I have never seen someone take such a wonderful thing, high speed internet, and twist it into an evil ball of hate. Bellow I’ll list some reasons why I hated it.

1. Only one computer can connect to the internet unless you pay for it.
2. Use of HTTP tunneling software causes all kinds of screw ups
3. That nice shiney router you bought to network your house and allow everyone to enjoy the powers of the internet is now useless due to reason 1
4. HTTP tunneling completely bypasses all router security functions therefore leaving control of your firewall COMPLETELY at the mercy of AOL
5. Can’t surf the web unless you have AIM turned on. This sucks when you have a computer that barely has enough balls to play a game you really like and you have to run an application that sucks up between 20 and 50 megs of ram just to play with your friends
6. AOL adds suck
7. AOL mail sucks, now mind you I havent used it in years so they may have improved it, but last time I used it I wanted to cry.
8. I’m a control freak and I like to have control of things like FTP servers, IIS servers, Remote Desktop and other things I like to use to make my dorky life that much easier.

Well nuff said, move to high speed, just avoid things that wrap you up with some software.

It would be funny if, pres took the phone, changed it into a plasmacaster, woke abe when he is dozing, ‘laser targeted’ abe and pointed click :lol: – thats a kodak moment photo right there.

Wait..aliens dont show facial emotions do they? :?

Then we can take a pic of pres’s punctured butt (thanks to abe’s tail :D ).

Funny comic!

Aliens can make faces too. Like this :evil: . Or even this :twisted: . Though, most of it is hostile and the ones that aren’t can only be read by other aliens…

Preds are the ones with less facial emotions… “Wow, I can move my eyebrows! And mandibles! Neato!” Whereas an alien: “Hey, I can bare my teeth, grin, smile, scowl, hiss, open my mouth in shock (Like Abe when he was yelling at the guy because he had no beer) stick out my tongue farther than you, and I look kewl!”

I want a camera that can change shape. I’d make it look like a drake. (Not the duck)

Whoah. Comic number 91? You’re three weeks away from 100! Maybe a bunch of us should get together and make a site dedicated to this site…

I went to a party in one of those indoor amusement park places, and at first couldn’t figure out why all the parents whipped out their phones as soon as the ride started. Then I realized they were taking photos of their darling children with their phones. There were really about a half dozen parents (out of maybe 8 or 10 standing around) snapping photos with their phones.

BRING A CAMERA.

It’s not like the random OMG got to get a pic moments where a camera phone might be fun, it was a party/amusement park place, the sort where a normal parent would just bring a decent camera, film or digital, to take a bunch of pictures of their kids.

Since when can Predators smile?
It’s like submarines having parachutes.

I never said they did. I said aliens smile. The extent of a predator’s facial features is it’s mandibles.

Really, I’d like to know who thought these walkie-talkie phones were a good idea. They drive me fucking BONKERS. Now we can hear both side of your inane conversations, pnctuated with annoying BEEP BEEPs. Whee!

I’d like to purchase one of your new fangled tin-can and string sets.

I enclose a lot of money, and urge others to do likewise.
I’d also urge them to discard the notion that you have sent this to yourself, and to embrace the idea that there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation for this coming from your own i.d.

yours, unrelatedly,

I’m a 17 year old girl, and I have to say there are a BUNCH of mindless twats who are obsessed with their frootin’ phones.

I don’t understand what their obsession with the things are, really. I share a mobile phone with my 13 year old brother, and I don’t even know my own phone number.

I just get by because we’re first in the phone book.

If anyone asks me my number, I always go “Dude, we’re first in the phone book.”

Damn the prank calls I get. DAMN THEM TO HELL.

I have to say that those nextel walkie-talkie phones are a godsend for work, because while you CAN talk to everyone at once, you don’t HAVE to talk to everyone at once, unlike our old stupid hand-held radios where you couldn’t hold a private conversation to save your life.

That being said, I don’t see why any individual would want a walkie-talkie phone. It’s embarrasing enough talking to someone about work related stuff in public, wth would you want to talk about personal stuff in public? And while I’m at it, what’s with those retarded commercials? What kind of moron has their staff use walkie-talkies at a board meeting?

well, im here to post the exact opposite. while you have a point on the walkie talkie phones, those are dumb as hell.

But the little cameras and stuff. those are actually useful for a number of reasons. I have a very long distance relationship with my girlfriend, so we send photos to eachother quite often. Thats always nice to be at work and get a photo of my girl cheezin’ at me. Also, my dad is a police officer, and apparently lots of crimes have been solved through those stupid little low-rez cameras.

The other type of phone I dont get….the ones that are like PDAs…why not just get a fuggin’ palm pilot or something? I dont need a phone that takes photos, holds MP3s, has a daily planner in it, and whatever else they have. Big waste of 300 dollars one thing that can break, when you can spend the same on 4 or 5 items to do everything the one does and not break it all at once. Dumbness I say, dumbness….
Later everyone, and this is my first post, be kind!

In the words of Dylan Moran:

“And now thanks to mobile phones, you can no longer bound in from the garden, pick up the 7 ton cellulite phone and say ‘Aunty Mary’s dead!’ Now you’re probably there! “Oh, yes, her heads rolling back now, spits coming out of her mouth and here eyes are rolling back – here *takes a pic*. See what I mean? Sheee’s F*CKED”

I know exactly what you mean about that; I feel the same way about most consumer electronics. Buy a stereo, and there’s a zillion useless tiny black buttons that you couldn’t figure out even if you could read the microscopic text on them. Anyway, at home I’m quite happy with my 50-year old rotary phone, thank you very much. I do have a cell phone, but the ring tone is set to “ring ring” (I HATE musical ring tones), and thankfully it doesn’t have a camera or the other various bits of crap.
