: The in porting can take a very long time. I in ported my file last night and it took about 5 hours. 
: The only way to know for sure something is going on is to use a light finder and see of the screen 
: on your phone comes on about 1 or 2 times per minute. That 5 hours was with a file over 5MB and with 
: the phone pludged in being it seams to run faster.

: When I save a points list with "Save as" in Internet Explorer and choose to save it as a text file 
: the phone does not seem to compile the list.  LoadStone says it is doing it, but after waiting an 
: hour for a 700K file it still hadn't done anything and I had to press softkey 2 several times to get 
: out of the software.  I thought that problem was solved.  Would it work if I did a control + c and 
: copy the list to memory, paste it into notepad, and then save it as a text file?
