Where's my mobile phone brush? Cell phone, yo -- how 'come there don't seem to be any such apps, even on the so-called smartphones. I know the Palm One units have available apps and I would imagine so would the Windows Mobile ones, but what about java-based phones? Am I missing some huge repository of apps or something?

My Sony w600i jumped 2 feet off an aquarium and cracked it's screen and has bled through. The display is totally useless and now the phone is acting up (dropping calls, static, etc.) I finally found this phone after major trouble with Blackberry and Motorolas. It was definately my favorite phone in my cell phone tenure. I now need a phone and don't want to pay 200-300 dollars (again) for a phone. I'm locked in a contact to the upgrade with a rebate is out of the question. Are there any stores online that I can find good deals on cell phones? What durable, simple frills phone would you recommend? I'm tired of spending good money and then either ruining it myself or having the phone go schizo on its own.

What's the bestselling video game of all time? Boring old Ask Yahoo! takes a very literal approach, offering Super Mario and Pac-Man. But if you think laterally, then shouldn't variations of Tetris, Solitaire and Snake be in the running? If you count all games on all devices and OEM bundles count as sales, what is the bestselling video game of all time?

Bluetooth Headset advice. Looking for some advice on a Bluetooth headset which works well with Motorola V710 phones. Right now I’m considering Motorola HS850, and would like to hear opinions on that model and alternatives. Important factors would be integration with phone, ease of use, battery life, and comfort. Also, this is going to be given as a gift to someone who currently uses there phone quite a bit (too often IMHO) while driving, is such a gift appropriate or could personal preference/comfort (and variability of this factors between users) a possible issue? I’ve Googled and Epinion’d a bit but have not had much luck in finding comparisons across models.

TracFone. Anyone here have anything good/bad to say about TracFone? Google shows very mixed reviews, with the worst of them dating 2-7 years ago. To complicate things, a lot of the negative reviews are written poorly or involve ignorant customers. Amazon reviews are useless since everyone is spamming the reviews trying to do referrals ("why, sure the phones are great!"). [more inside]

I've had Vonage for a year + now and have no intention of going back to Verizon. And yet when I called Verizon to get them to detach and remove their ugly wires from my home, they want to bill me for the work. What are my rights?
I have an irrational aversion to using the telephone, even in the most innocuous and impersonal of situations (like calling to find out if some place is open, if a store sells a certain thing, if a musical venue is selling tickets to a show in advance, etc). I wouldn't go so far as to call it a "fear", though I do get somewhat nervous when forced to use the phone in such circumstances, which makes it inconvenient and somewhat unpleasant for me when I have to use the phone for whatever reason. So how can I overcome my phone aversion?
Mobile phones in Syria. Anybody happen to know what band they use over there/what company one could get a sim card from if one was going to stay there for a year?
European disposable mobile phones: My parents, who are American, are going to Edinburgh, London & Paris later this week. They've asked me what I know about disposable/rentable phones since their phones won't work over there. I know nothing. So now I'm asking all of you: What do you know about good deals on disposable/rentable phones in the UK & France? (I believe they're looking to use the phones for a period of 7-10 days, and if it makes things simpler I think they are willing to do without during the French portion of the trip if necessary)
I just discovered that my vtech 2.4Ghz cordless phone is messing up my wireless g network, knocking my powerbook offline whenever I take a call.

I'm renovating a room and I'd like to move a phone jack that was originally placed 5 feet from the floor (for a wall phone), down closer to plug height. We're talkin' standard wood frame construction with gypsum board walls. I know that the box is set against a wall stud but I'm unsure the best way to do this with the least amount of tearing up and patching. Any tips, online resources or warnings? I also don't know jack about phone wiring. Get it? Jack? Har dee har.
So it came to pass and I got my Treo 600. I've been using AOL 3.2.1 for Palm for a couple of weeks but now it won't let me log on to my master screen name.

Can anyone recommend a good internet/phone/cell provider? Last year, my place of employment signed an all-inclusive contract with Norvergence for a T1 line, local & long distance phone and cell phone service. Service and support has been less than satisfactory and today, it has become apparent that they are going out of business. We are hoping to find a similar service with a reliable company. Any recommendations and experiences are appreciated. [more inside]
