Hi, well the lg groove was meant to be out yesterday (06/12/07) according to retailers.... and nothing.... so am going to just bite the bullet and get one of the sanyo's. I see the 8500 is only just out and seems to do the same thing... anyone had a play with this and have any comments?

You can get details f rom the Telecom mobile store...  You get weight, standby, what's in the box, features, etc.  I think if you are going to put music onto it, then it will definitely be on the micro SD card.  I asked about putting music onto similar phones in previous threads, they will be in either the Telecom forum or CDMA forum.  From memory, the music from music store goes into the 'music' file, and your own music goes into the sound file.  Try it out with one song first to make sure you have it down pat...   (had a customer in a few weeks ago who had downloaded a hundred dollars or so of songs and none were there.  Of course, the customer wouldn't let me touch the phone to look into it, so I have bought a magic wand...)  I asked in a thread about a samsung w531, if you want to look for it...  I won't be getting the new phone, as work supplied me with the M1 as my demo phone.  I am last in line for a new phone...

Used one for about 2 months, good device.

Listen to my music off it all day (streaming A2DP), talking a good couple hours a day and the battery life was great.

Solid construction too.

If you do not have or arent going to use the stereo bluetooth, I would suggest saving your $ and grabbing a 8400 as they're pretty much the same under the skin (8400 doesnt have A2DP), if you can get over the 8400 external aerial.

Have you had a look at the Samsung M510 deal? Stereo BT Headset + 1GB Micro SD. Not bad.
