Yep, he did indeed list it on eBay.

The video comes from a site called willitblend.com. You can see him blend all sorts of stuff. Some of it is pretty funny. He even blended a bunch of those glow sticks, in the dark, and it was really cool.

It also links to the company that sells the blenders (it's their site actually).

Personally, I think all cell phones would be better off in the blender.

One day they might figure out how to give us a phone that, I don't know, actually receives calls. :shrug:

Has anyone else noticed that you no longer get a date and time for all those missed calls? And that messages arrive days later?

I went into a Cingular store the other day trying to pick out a replacement phone. One phone had an MP3 player in it, another for $100 less, did not. So I asked the young man at the counter if paying the extra $100 for the MP3 player model would give me better cell reception. He looked at me strangely and said, no, it just gives you an MP3 player. Great -- I get to listen to tunes while I miss calls.:grrr:

Anyway, all the reviews I've read have said the iPhone is great for everything except use as a phone.

They must really think we are stoopid.

I'm with you on that one!!! I'm shopping for my first cell phone and I never thought it would be such a nightmare. I want a good phone, good call quality, good reception, good price. Period. It's not rocket science!!! Well it seems harder to find than I thought! :wall:

:shrug: I think it's just Cingular. My mom and brother have the same complaint about Cingular/AT&T, but I've never had trouble with calls on any of my T-mobile phones. You don't even get times for missed calls? :??

Um. That's definitely just you. The only place I don't get reception is in elevators and on the subway (and these are both a "sometimes I get reception, sometimes I don't" thing). I never get messages late, and my missed calls always have the date and time. I have Verizon, with one of the mp3-playing LG's (looks sorta like a black Razr.) I love Verizon...almost never have reception problems.

AT&T...ugh. What a nightmare. I'm so glad I only had a one-year contract.

I have Verizon too, and I'm also in the Boston area. My phone sucks though, it's the LG "V" when it first came out. Crappy reception, crappy phone and voice quality and I get absolutely no signal in my house (and my roommates does, she has Verizon).
So it's not just zkimom

I do like my phone for texting and it was Verizon's only qwerty option at the time. That is one thing I hate about Verizon, they're so slow to update their phone technology. I know it's to wait until other companies shake out the bugs, but so many of their phones are lousy! I've even had this specific phone replaced once (for free) since there was a software bug that made it turn itself on and off of its own free will.

I've probably gotta go fork over extra cash for a new phone now.:rollseyes:

No sirs! Not harsh at all. :hug:
I was just chiming in with my own Verizon related frustrations so zkimom didn't feel all alone.

Silly internet, what with the lack of facial expressions and tone of voice and all. :teehee:

From the research I did, there are a lot of parameters involved. There's the phone, the CDMA vs GSM issue, whether the phone is trimode or not (here, to get reception in rural areas, you absolutely need a trimode phone. The most recent phones don't seem to be trimode though), the number of towers, the number of obstacles for reception, etc., etc. etc. :shock: So when somebody says he/she has bad reception, it could be due to various reasons. And trying to identify the problem isn't easy for the poor customer who simply tries to get a decent phone service... :rollseyes: Companies are not always helpful for that unfortunately.

Is it the 8600? That's the phone I have! I am hearing impaired and the first time I used this phone, I actually had to turn the earpiece volume DOWN. For me, that is a huge deal. The only time I had reception issues with Verizon, it was due to a faulty phone. When I got that one replaced, I had no other issues.

Stiney

The black one? 8600 sounds right. I picked it because it was the skinniest phone they had besides the Razr. I've heard bad things about the Razr, and I've loved all my LG phones (okay, so this is only my third, but still.) The one thing I don't like is the speaker phone is not as good as on my last one, but I think they're doing that to make you buy a headset. I don't drive any more, so it's not as big of an issue as it was.
