I was reading on pricing on Vodafones website and uncovered this: "Video PXT messages are $1 per message.".

This is going to sound stupid but when they refer to Video PXT messages, they refer to MMS's with a video file attached? Or is it using one of their templates?

Does it affect audio or other files being sent via the MMS service?

They just look at the attachments in the MMS. If there's a .3gp file attached (video MMS) then ch-ching, up goes the bill another $0.80c

How's that phone of yours going? There's a new update available for the P910 (I just got one too, great phone), chuck your phone on the SE Online Update and it should upgrade it.

Its going really well, just I'm afraid that updating the phone will put the MMS lock back in.

Hmm, I wonder what extenstion the p910 uses for audio.... on the old z600 it was amr.

No, updating it will not put the MMS lock back in, that's something customised in the old UserData area that is now long since flashed away :)

If you're interested in looking around your phone in more detail, install the excellent free SMan, you get to poke around in the filesystem proper then :)

Updated... took a while to back everything up and then to update, then to put everything back. But its done.

As for the video messaging (was going to send audio files instead)- I think I'll stay away from it. I was tempted to before I learned of the $1/message charge.

Muppet - another good app is Agile messenger too :)

Yes, I have that installed, very handy as long as you don't mind those data bills!

What you can do though is buy yourself a bluetooth dongle and install it on your Internet connected PC, then install the P910 software onto that as well.

Once your P910 is connected to the laptop (ie you can sync etc over bluetooth) then you can also browse the 'net (using Opera) and do Instant Messenger via Agile. The P910 software intelligently routes the request to the PC which routes it out to the 'net and back. Means if you're lazy like me you can have your phone doing IM for you without having to pay GPRS charges. Of course, only works when you're near your PC so some might argue there's no point at all.

Other "must have" apps in my opinion:

Magic Profiles Pro 1.1 (I can't believe the P800/P9x0 don't have profiles as part of the sotware, wtf?)
Blue Eyes (free Image Viewer)
OggPlay (free High quality music in half the space of mp3)
SmsReminder - Remind you with sound every X minutes if you have a unread TXT (not free)
The Pad (Draw on the screen just like a pad, also not free)
