Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
monstersocks' brother-in-law got a cool new phone from T-Mobile recently and I've been doing a little investigation and found a review that claims the sound quality is significantly better than my phone so I may need to hurry up and see if I can get one.

I've been with T-Mobile for over a year so my contract is up. For a little while Amazon was offering a t610 for -$170 but it looks like it's down to -$70 now (with a much higher up-front price.) That deal was also for new customers only.

I think I'll contact them and see what they'd charge me to upgrade to the t610 as an existing customer. If it's too much I'll investigate switching my number over to Sprint temporarily or something (I still have my old Sprint phone and I'd think I could activate it and switch my number over then cancel T-Mobile and sign up as a new customer and switch the number back.) I could also just cancel the service then start new service with a new number.

be sure to either:
get a 610 for free; or
get a 630, which is basically a 610 with some of the warts removed (e.g., TFT screen.)

Mike has this phone, and he loves it. He has convinced his parents and at least 5 friends to buy it. Of course, he wasn't a t-mobile customer yet, so he got the new service deal and a serious rebate on the phone. Amazon seemed to have the best deal on it when he was hunting, though I don't know if that's still true. He is especially fond of the BlueTooth headset, as it works with his laptop, too, and has an extremely high geek factor.

Amazon has some amazing deals. I was a bit annoyed that T-Mobile's recent rebates require a $39.99 or greater calling plan (I'm at $29.99 currently and don't ever get close to using all of my minutes.)

What kind of Bluetooth headset did he get?

It's a pretty fancy one that hooks over one ear. It was part of the Amazon deal. I think it's pretty pricey if it isn't included with the phone, but I'm not sure.
