Umm...The Studio is no longer an option on the KIN TWOm. Nor is the spot, or 3g Zune streaming or downoading, or any of the social networking apps that were available on the phone during the 1st release. Hence the availablitly of the KIN TWOm with out a data plan.
I have seen no way to import contact into this phone. Backup assistant is not even available.
Correct me if I am wrong Noah, but I think that your information is way,way off base.
Noah! Your answer is a classic example of why this phone has done so poorly for Verizon. First of all, you've given very detailed instructions for a procedure that should be a lot easier. My last phone pretty much updated it's own contacts list. And secondly, it's the wrong phone! Verizon / Microsoft has removed all of the features that would make your procedure work. Did you not know that?! While I (we?) appreciate your efforts, it would be great if you and everyone else at Verizon got with the program on this. Could we have you answer the question again please?
I just received my Kin TwoM in the mail today. I was just able to send an MMS to my flickr account via an email address. I do not have a data plan and I do not have my WiFi access setup yet on the phone.
I was not able to send the MMS through the contacts app. I have flickr setup as a contact with the email address, but the Kin does not give me the option to send the text through that app.
I had to find the photo and choose to send it. I then had to manually type in the email address that Flickr setup for me to send MMS messages to. It was a pain, but luckily I have a good memory and was able to recall the email address correctly. To send addtitional MMS messages I can go into the messages app, find an old message I sent to flickr and send another photo up to that site. I hope this makes sense.
Basically, it looks like you can't use the contact app to send a text message to an email, but you can create a text message and manually type in the email address. After you do that the first time, you can then find that sent message in the Messages app and send another text message to that email address from their.
If only Microsoft would fix it so that you could send the text message directly from the contacts app instead of using this work-a-round.
Please let me know if this does or doesn't work for you.
I don't know if this has anything to do with anyone's issues or not, but reading the above post reminded me to mention that you also can not forward a txt msg of any kind. I received a comical holiday FWD from a friends and wanted to share it with another and it is not possible. Nor is it possible to receive a FWD that contains a picture with motion and I could not hear the sound until I saved it as a ring tone. Unless I'm doing something wrong..This aspect of this phone really sucks. I'm with whoever said that my flip phone from 5 years ago could handle the above capabilities...why can't the kin? Microsoft really needs to get their poop in a group before re-launching a phone with less software capabilities just to market this phone sans data plan. I hope someone important reads these posts and helps us out. I'm so frustrated I keep toying with the idea of returning this phone and terminating my renewal.
