    This entire blob of words is a waste of time to even read unless you subscribe to T Mobile. Again Sony proving how much they SUCK like when their cameras etc. could only use XD Pro cards forcing consumers to have no choice if they want something else they haven’t approved for their crap. But Sony grew some brains when their cameras arr now able to use SD cards. Sony is overpriced cheap crap not even eorth looking at. SONY SUCKS
