Neither Coming Soon NOR products page have EITHER CDMA phone listed
anymore. I hate to fuel the fire, but it seems like its quite dead.

This is VERY depressing to me . . . .seems like it might be time pickup
Tmobile's unlimited data plan and a phone from them

Just did yesterday. I got a Nokia 3650 off of Amazon for free with a 1
yr plan from T-Mobile. Only $39.99 for 600 anytime, unlimited night and
weekend, plus another $19.99 for unlimited data with VPN (so I can
access my client's VPN site while on the road).

My friend got a Sanyo 8100 from SprintPCS with the 600min plan, and
professional vision pack... only $90/mo compared to $60/mo for a better
plan from T-Mobile (and a better phone too: $100 vs. $0). He saw the
move I was making and immediately told Sprint to keep the phone and went
T-Mobile too.

My only concern is that T-Mobile is GSM-only... so I can't use the phone
out of network. But, since I stay in the metro area 95% of the time, I
can just pick up a Go plan from AT&T for a few bucks. Plus, their
TDMA/Analog network works more places than CDMA here in Wisconsin.

Sprint kept dickin' around with the T608, jacked up their rates since
last year, and have a crappy data plan. They just lost 2 customers as a
result. Maybe if they get their act together next year, I'll reevaluate
my cell plan and go back.

For those that said they were interested in how the T-Mobile data plan
works out for me... I'll let you know in a few days when I have my
phone. Maybe it's a little slower than Sprint or Verizon's network...
but I can actually use it for more than just downloading stupid
ringtones, checking mail, and taking pics.... ~100KB/s is a waste of
bandwidth if that's all you can use it for.

F*ckin' A! Glad to hear the switch you made worked for you. I hope I
have as much luck with my switch.

Ditto on the ***kin A! I am switching to T-Mobile as soon as the
number portability laws are smoothed out in the fall. Then who gives a
**** if something sucks, just switch again before the trial period is
over, which is usually long enough to realize you made a bad decision.
Anyway, look for the T610 soon, it's bad AZZS!

I would imagine come fall that there may be some changes in
activation fees and trial periods. Perhaps an additional port fee.
