    Hi there. I'm new to the forum. Wanted to post my impressions of the 3590 for you in case you were wooed by the polyphonic ring-tones and fun-ness of the phone.

    The Good: Polyphonic ring tones coupled with the vibration when the phone is ringing mean hours of entertainment when the phone rings in the 'disco' ring tone and you watch it sorta 'dancing' on the table. That's funny. The phone also comes with 3 games, a side-scroller space shooter called "Space Impact 2", a pinball game called "Bumper" (which nokia will add more tables to their site), and "Sugar Bowl", a fun football strategy game.

    The bad: This phone has buttons that hang up at inopportune times, such as when you're typing in your voicemail password (the other person can't hear the hung buttons though, as I discovered last night when trying to talk to my mom), sometimes will just turn off for no reason. This seems to happen during voicemail more than anything else, for some wacky reason. And I didn't accidentally press the off button because it's on the top of the phone.. also, the ring tones are quiet. When you use a ringtone from ufone.ca, you end up with a situation where the phone puts the tone down an octave and you'd never hear it (thank god for the vibrating mode). The polyphonic ring tones sound loud but aren't really.. when you split the stuff going out into 3 or more tones, it lowers the overall amplitude.

    For some reason, for this particular phone or GSM service, you must dial a phone number at the carrier (in this case Rogers AT&T) in order to access voicemail(not your own number. If you dial yourself it tells you there's a call incoming). That's fine, if the phone remembered the voicemail number for longer than 2 days at a time. I had to make an entry in my phone number database for voicemail (it sure as heck doesn't forget those numbers) and activate the 1 touch dialing.

    So you must outweigh the good versus the bad. The good, the phone is fun. The bad, the phone is aggravating. And these problems could be just my particular ones, I dunno. I'll have to go back to the mall to talk to the spokesguy about why my phone is sucking. Perhaps I could convince him to trade it in for a 6310i, which has like bluetooth, a nice big display (with a blue light and not nokia's garish green).

    Oh well. [​IMG]

    An update. Last night, the phone worked fine. I turned it off as usual.
    This morning, it would not turn on. The battery is charged (it gives like 5 days of standby time and 6 hours of talk time), but the darn thing won't turn on. I plugged it into its AC adaptor, because a previous time where the phone wouldn't turn on, plugging it in "jogged" it back to life, so to speak. No luck.

    The phone is dead.
    And I'm very angry now.

    Try waiting for the 3585, if it comes to your carrier. It should have some bugs worked out. the only problem is its not GSM if thats what you need. Check out www.nokiausa.com to see it.

    No Madskillz - in my opinion, blow off the nokia 3585.

    * it isn't all that great
    * awful design and color of buttons
    * not your network's frequency
    * GSM has so many nice phones already
    * is not even colored


    in my opinion, GSM has the best phones off the block already! but service wise, it may not be the top of the notch - but i don't really look for that, phone design is my thing - who cares about the 3585 in your case, not even your frequency and will be quickly outdated

    .. plz dont take my opinions to the fullest extent - it's just he way i say things, no pun is ever intended [​IMG]
