    But Amazon only wants $99 after you mail in your TM and Amazon rebates.

    OK cool. I picked up a Nokia 3390 to use as a backup phone when I had an issue with my Samsung E105. Until they sent me the replacement, I was using the Nokia. T-Mobile and other GSM carriers have a big advantage over the others in being able to switch phones so easily when needed by simply moving the SIM card to another phone and transferring the entire phone book with it...

    Yes, that is a positive of GSM. I picked up a refurbed 6190 with a EasySpeak starter kit in Las Vegas Last month. The 6190 is my back up phone now. When my grandmother's Cingular contract is up next month. I am going to port her number over to the Easyspeak SIM. :)

    Maybe I'm missing something then, because I don't see it AT ALL.

    I see the V300 for $99, but I don't want the V300, I want the V600. Can you point me to an URL?

    Of course...Amazon's deals always require that. You can convert the new line to a family line after you get your rebates though.

    If you're a new T-Mobile customer there should be an 800 number for you to call (it might still be 1-888-STREAMS). If you're an existing T-Mobile customer, take off the battery from your old phone, remove the small plastic SIM card, put it in the appropriate location (metal contacts down, of course) in your V600, and replace the battery.

    Good to see new models coming out.

    Two colleagues recommended T Mobile, so I signed up with them (gave up on TracFone (thanks, Cingular!)), and joined this group. :)

    How do you flash the Motorola OEM software into a phone? And what the hell does "flex" mean?

    Flash of course is the software/OS...think of the the flex as the programs that are loaded onto the phone.

    You need a data cable and some software programs for a PC to do it yourself.

    Bought my T-Mobile Nokia 3595 package at Target, was on sale for $74.88 and came with a $20.00 rebate. :D

    Would you share how I would upgrade the firmware on the V600 to Motorola OEM.

    I had a phone stolen and and looking for a place to buy the V600. Before I saw your msg I did not realize that Cingular sold unlocked phones.

    Thanks.
