Why can't your snazzy phone just download a picture of me off of the Internet?

Because alas, I have not dropped the extra $50 for the USB interface and driver software.

Aha. I had seen "phones" with built-in web browsing, so based on your description I assumed that your phone did that as well.

So, how would one send your phone a picture, then?

I can get on the Web with the phone, but its a mite pricey. Per minute, you know.

Pictures are apparently sent via a PIX protocol (I'm not sure if that's industry standard or Motorola specific), but its basically an SMS message with a small (max of 40-50Kb) image attached to it. Its sent in much the same way as a conventional text message.
