    I need some advice: I'm currently with ATTWS, but my contract is up and, quite coincidentally, my 3360 just died. I haven't been extremely pleased with my ATTWS service, and I'm considering switching to Cingular. That said, I need help deciding on which handset to go with. I've narrowed it down to the 3590 and the 6590 offered in the local Cingular stores. I also really like the 8265, which is NOT offered at the Cingular store, per se, but is available through various authorized agents. The only problem with that is, I won't be able to get that rather attractive instant rebate offered at the Cingular stores. By going through an independent agent, I'd have to settle for a mail-in rebate. I can get the 8265 through ATTWS, for about half- retail, if I use my upgrade option, but I really don't care to stay with ATTWS all that much.
    As for the 3590 and 6590 models, my major concern is the GSM v. TDSM (forgive me if I get any of this terminology incorrect)- issue. While the GSM network is up and running in my area (West Tennessee), supposedly, the rep I spoke with at one Cingular agent advised that I might want to stick with the traditional networks for a while. So, I'm concerned that if I go with either the 3590 or 6590, I might have reception issues sooner or later. Any comments/suggestions?

    I can help with service in the area but if you are going with cingular I suggest that you check out the ericsson t62u and the nokia 6340. Both of these phones are GAIT phones meaning that they can use GSM/TDMA and AMPS (analog)

    Thanks, Jack, for the reply. That echoes the advice the agent rep gave me. The Ericson doesn't interest me much, but the Nokia 6340's OK. I just really like the white/ blue backlights on the other aforementioned models. I know...picky, picky...
