Motorola MPx220 Smartphone (Cingular)
Great Phone- Once you go Smart you never go Dumb.

I just got this phone 2 days ago, as an upgrade from my ageing T720. A huge step up. It is considered a medium to large flip phone. It is the same size as the T720 (including antenna). I do not consider it large, plus I like that it feels like a full sized phone when opened and in use. This is a business oriented phone and has the features to back it up. But the entertaining media features are why I bought this phone.

Design: The antenna that seems to go across the top of the phone may only seem odd in pictures, but is actually not. It also makes holding the phone open more comfortable. Button layout is good. And the internal screen is colorful and big (2 inches diagonally).

My only problem here seems to be that the phone's left side earpiece volume rocker is too easily changed. This only changes the level of sound in the earpiece (not speaker phone or ring tones). It is the only button that is not recessed into the phone's side. (I wish it was) Power and camera button on sides work fine. While the phones external screen turns off after a few seconds to save power, hitting the volume button quickly turns it on to let you see the time and date as well as battery and antenna levels. It's a trade off here useful and bothersome, but after a while its fine.

Features: The camera's quality is another problem for some people. It is a mega pixel camera, but its pictures lack the fine detail of other comparable camera phones. The highest resolution pics are "1280 X 960". They look fine in bright outdoor settings. Any where else and the pics quality get noticeably worse. I would not even try to use it at night.(unless very well lighted) It does have a flash, but should only be used for face shots only a few feet away. Even then at night the pics may be ok to view for awhile, and then delete.

All that said I could have typed 10 times more about how great this phone is. I just wanted to let you know what some of the problems were and how they might annoy you.

The GOOD :
+++ Voice clarity (quad band = better reception in more places)
+++ Speaker phone (loud and clear)
+++ Windows Media Player 9 (allows mp3 and video playback) I can watch recorded TV from my PC on the player and listen with the speaker phone. Just use "Windows Media Encoder 9", and their "Pocket PC" setting. It can even encode clips taken with my Canon camera. (Note: the larger or longer the media the longer it will take to encode.) Runs clips at 259KB per second. Look fine with little to no lag. (4 min clip = 6.5mb) Clips can be run sideways in full screen mode. There are no fast forward or rewind options.
+++ Easy sync with PC (Sync calendar, contacts, task, inbox)
+++ Bluetooth (I haven't used this feature yet)
+++ Mini SD expansion (now available up to 256mb, soon 512) great for packing in music, video or pics from other sources.
+++ Runs newest version of Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition.

The phone works great, plays mp3's and video. This alone will justify the cost. The fact that it is a smart phone means that there are many more applications that can be added to this phone. (check for more) This makes it more that worth it, this is a great phone.

Compatibility with Windows Mobile applications (Pocket Outlook/Pocket Internet Explorer)
64MB Flash ROM and mini-SD removable memory for extra storage

A great little phone for the price

I've never owned a cell phone before. I finally broke down, and I got a really good plan. All in all, I really like this phone. But I can't understand how Sprint is allowed to just nickel and dime me to death on this thing!For instance, lots of people are raving about the amazing voice command feature on this phone. What they aren't telling you is that this is NOT a feature of the phone. It's a service that you have to pay an extra $5 a month for from Sprint.I got free internet for the first 2 months. I decided to download some fun ringers and screensaver things. Now, this is the part I can't believe is legal (and for all I know all cell phones do this). They charge $2-3 for each ringtone or screensaver or whatever. Now, we're talking about 30 seconds of a song, a song you can download from napster for 99 cents (also a ripoff). But the incredible, hair on fire, insane part is that you don't own it. You RENT it. After 3 months, it "expires." Can you imagine? You don't ever own it, even though the prices are highway robbery.Oh, also, if you decide you don't want to pay $15 a month for worthless internet service (trust's like time travel to 1994 waiting for your email to appear), you'd better cancel it quick. Because you can't cancel it immediately. Sprint makes you wait until the next billing cycle. Unless there's 3 or fewer days left. Then you have to wait until the NEXT billing cycle after that.These are the kind of things that consumer protection laws are written for. For all the RIAA's bluster about "intellectual property," I'm wondering why I have to buy songs I already own to use them as ring tones; and I don't get to keep them!One helpful feature on this phone is a memo recorder. Now, logically, I should be able to just record a song using this recorder to use as a ringtone, right? Wrong. It's impossible.Don't get me wrong, all in all I like the service. I got free PCS-to-PCS calling, so I can call my girlfriend for free. In general I like the plan. But, like, I downloaded Asteroids yesterday. I could have sworn it said the licence was unlimited. But when it got to my phone, it expires in a month!On top of that, the game is terrible, worse than the atari 2600 version. I'll admit I haven't tried, but I assume if I call Sprint and tell them I'm not satisfied with it (or the incredibly terrible, compressed, unlistenable version of "Back in Black" I downloaded), they'll tell me too bad.Which hardly seems fair. I'm forced to buy things sight unseen (they even launched a website just for games where if you're interested in buying something, you click "buy," and it then downloads the price to your phone. There's NO other way to find out the price!!!). I'm sorry, but this is unethical. They're just ripping off teenagers who don't know any better. I guess I don't get it. Why can't I upload my own songs, pictures, ringtones, games? Why does Sprint have a monopoly on my phone? I bought the phone, isn't it mine? Anyway, it sounds great, it works great, it's light and I love the screen and the ringtones that are included. I downloaded Tetris and solitaire and they work great. It's so small I can't believe it.I like it. But I don't like the way Sprint treats my phone like it's actually still theirs.

Can't do better for the plus 200 in rebates

(...)Using the app, I was able to upload/download ringtones, themes, backup my address book, delete unwanted files on the phone, etc, straight from my computer keyboard, without having to touch all those tiny buttons on the phone. I'm 6'4", and those tiny phone buttons are a pain for me sometimes, but I'll live with it, as the rebates are giving me free phone service for 5 months. Plus, T-mobile will let get you the 1000 minute plan for 40 bucks, how cool is that? Pretty good, you don't get rollover yet, but I'm sure they'll get something comparible to Cingular soon. Like all cell phones, your reception is dependent on the phone and the towers in your area. I have only one bar reception at my house, and I'm able to have decent converations all the time with only a few dropouts. I recommend this phone and service.

Pretty Good

I purchased this phone arter owning several pre-paid models. The pre-paid phones worked for me, but increased need for my cell phone as I moved to a college campus led me to purchase the Motoral v300. The phones most distinctive feature is it's textured blue casing. Motorola says that it is grippy, but that isn't why I'm impressed with it--the grip factor is minimal. It is very stylish,and I like the fact that you can drop this phone a few times--although I don't recommend it--and the textured blue casing will not get scratched. The color screen and camera are nice additions, but I'm not primarily concerned with them so I can't make a judgement on their quality. The phone's reception is ok, I live on a college campus so I don't expect to get reception everywhere. People with other carriers sometimes get reception where I don't, and I often get reception where they don't. One pet peeve of mine is that when I'm coming from an area where I don't get reception into an area where I do get reception, it takes a while for the phone to reestablish the reception. I can be walking from a basement to an open room or outdoors, and it may take a little while to get reception again. This one drawback is annoying, but if you like all the other features of the phone, it's noting too serious.

Everything I'd Hoped It Would Be

Changed to T-Mobile two weeks ago and got these phones for self, wife, and daughter. Wife and daughter, severe critics, gave thumbs-up to phones and provider. T-Mobile beats the heck out of AT&T coveragewise for us where we live/work/play (Los Gatos, Cupertino, San Jose, CA). Note that I got the phones for FREE (after rebate) by waving the first page of the Amazon listing for the V300 under the T-Mobile saleman's nose. Saved $750!

At least these stay on

Unlike belt clips for prior models that would constantly send the phone falling into things, this one does hold it securely. Almost too securely in fact. It also puts the phone at what I feel to be an ackward angle from the body. Getting better but not quite there yet.

Nokia 3650 Phone (T-Mobile)
Good Phone, Awesome Features, innovative design

I had great faith that Nokia will not disappoint and it did not. People have criticized the round dial the large size but I appreciate Nokia for innovating and trying out new designs
The dial is cool and the size is not offending and has a good feel to it when you use the phone.Size:
Yes the phone is not as small is the flip phones or the T616/T610(will refer to them as T616) but it has a good feel. The phone feels good to hold and use and talk, I used to own a A460 and did not like talking on it.. never felt comfortable with the grip..
If you are living in a place where it snows, you will appreciate the fact that you can feel the phone when you hold it and use it under horrible weather conditions. I used to carry a Palm IIIxe(used primarily for calendar, games and to maintain a To Do List) and a Samsung a460 but now I only need to carry one device which I got for free! The only phone which i would like to replace this phone is a Handspring Treo but which is of comparable size! Nokia has a lot of support:
Unlocking this phone is easier than most GSM phones as Nokia phones are well researched and you get all kinds of information on the web. ia3650/
Nokia uses face plates on almost all phones = If you scratch your screen all you need to do is buy a face plate (Does not cost much) and you can replace the screen yourself (I am not referring to LCD screen only the front panel and battery cover).Screen:
The screen is very pleasing and you can use any image for the wall paper... you don't have to pay to buy wallpapers most images work fine! You can also click a pic and use it as a wall paperCamera:
This phone has a better camera than the T616 with better clarity and image quality. Also you can record videos. Though to record long videos you need extra space on the MMC card and additional software. This is a phone plus PDA which also has a camera for a very low cost. The camera is not meant to replace a real camera and is only to click pics for fun and send them across!! So do not expect more.. !!
Though it's only a matter of time before the quality of the camera improves that it will replace your real camera!PDA:
Most people who want a good calendar app, note a few things down and maintain a To Do list and do not want to maintain two phone list( one on their pda and one on their phone) will love this phone! Though one misses the touch screen on regular PDAs the T9 text input does a good job! ml T616's calendar does not allow you to enter weekly events, from what I have seen you have to enter such events in outlook and then sync! For 3650 the calendar app is complete and satisfying and I sync with Outlook only for backup. Voice Recorder:
The quality of the recording from the mic is good if the person speaking is close to you even if you are seated on the last bench in the hall the quality is acceptable. The only thing I don't like is that the default recorder cannot record longer than a minute and you need to buy additional software to be able to do that! The same is true for being able to record long videos. d&nrp=100Ring Tones:
Ok this is something that much better on the T616 in comparison! The quality is not as great... and the volume cannot be really loud though contrary to other reviews its good enough!Profiles:
This phone has different profiles which control the various settings for ringers and alerts and you can configure them the way you like but for integrating your calendar with the selection of a profile you will need an additional software package (Some people claim that the newer firmware does not need it, I am not sure about this) Still this is a great feature and one of the reason for using a Java VM and Symbian is so that third party software providers can make software to suit your needs...Games:
I don't play much but seems people love playing games on this phone....Battery Life:
Good enough, regular phone use without too much use to IrDA and Bluetooth, you will mostly charge your phone once in two days.Tzones:
If you have unlimited Tzones then you can go ahead and configure many (don't know the upper limit) IMAP and POP mail accounts and send and receiver mails with attachments easily! Also you can browse the web... haven't done a lot of that.SMS:
One of the main reasons for shifting to GSM and TMobile is so that I can SMS my friends all over the globe. Most cell phone providers in other countries using GSM will allow sending and receiving SMS from any GSM phone. It's a craze in other countries don't know why only TMobile allows you to SMS and other GSM service providers ( ATT and Cingular) don't allow international SMS.
Any ways this a good reason for shifting to T MobileNetwork Coverage:
Well don't know of the rest of US but works great where I live. Yes Verizon does seem to have a better network but if you will not be traveling much then it does not matter. The quality is clear even when the network seems weak and I have got GPRS coverage too in all places I have tried.MMC Card:
People have used 512 MB MMC cards with this phone and they seem to work great. What this means is that you can record really long low quality videos and complete seminars! Also encode movies and watch them... Also back up your phone data onto the card if you don't backup to a comp. I think this is an awesome feature to be able to upgrade your memory just like most PDAs. Though people claim that to be able to use 512 MB cards you will require Nokia to do a firmware upgrade on your phone.Overall, Nokia does a great job at making 3650 a good basic phone but also has tons of goodies to be able to replace a PDA and provide a fun camera!PS: to lock you keypad click on the right select button and then the * key. Hmm the lack of being able to lock your keypad once you beging a handsfree conversation is by far the only thing I hate.

T-Mobile Color Sidekick Phone (T-Mobile)
Too heavy and extremely bad reception.

...and when I got it, I was indeed quite pleased with its features and its usability. I'll keep the original 5-star review below for you to read, since most of the review is still accurate, but I do have to clarify things now that I've been using it for a month: It's not just big. It's TOO big. You have to really consider how you're going to port this monster around. * It's kinda hard to hear people talking to you. It could use a speakerphone or better gain. * T-Mobile's coverage is not nearly as good as Verizon's. * Oh well. It's only a 1-year commitment and people still think it's the coolest little gadget out there. But think hard before you make the leap!The Original Review:I am as picky of a techie as one gets. I want form AND I want function in all of my gadgets. And I waited a good while before I finally took the plunge on the Sidekick. Some people think I'm crazy for leaving Verizon Wireless for T-Mobile JUST for a new phone. But let me tell you -- this Sidekick phone ROCKS! I'm a Usability Engineer by trade, and this phone is a case study in good usability. I was up and running on it in no time. The display of the operating system is gorgeous, and the quality of making calls is exceptional. YES, there are a few drawbacks. 1 -- it's big. (But seriously, don't you kinda feel ridiculous putting those tiny little phones up to your ear that practically get lost in your hand?) 2 -- the Sidekick wireless network isn't available everywhere, but so far for me -- most everywhere. and 3 -- it's big. (Did I mention it's big?) But if you are looking for a device that lets you use your AOL Instant Messenger account, browse the web, make calls, play games, use applications, etc. -- all from a beautiful color screen with a QWERTY keyboard (!!) -- then this is definitely the phone for you. (And it doesn't hurt that people will constantly be looking over your shoulder saying, "Hey! That's a really cool phone ya got there!") T-Mobile may not have the same reliability for coverage that Verizon Wireless has, but they sure have a better selection of phones. So it's up to you to weigh the pros and cons -- but I'd recommend the Sidekick in a heartbeat!
Product features:
Important note: It's required that you add the Sidekick Unlimited Data option to your service plan before you check out.
To add the required option, you must add the Sidekick and a service plan, and then on the Accessories page, you need to select the Sidekick Unlimited Data option located under Service Options (this option is located on Step 3 in the checkout process)
The T-Mobile Sidekick is the ultimate communication device
A large color screen that flips open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard makes for quick and easy communication
Stay connected with all your friends with unlimited e-mail, AOL Instant Messenger, Internet browsing, text messaging and mobile snapshots

Bulky Cadillac Slider

Nicest slider phone I have ever had, have gone through three of these phones, the earpiece speaker goes out in them pretty fast after a lot of use, ok picture quality, video is a joke! Very user friendly operating system, even while you talk on the phone. Pimp spring loaded sliding action, but phone is too large for active people. I had to downsize.
