    yeah....thats what i wouldnt be comfortable with.......feeling like I'm holding a brick to my head......i would never get used to it.....and the battery time for smartphones and PDAs are significantly less than a regular phone...

    I have nearly 5 hours talk time on my 8125, I don't know about you, but in comparison that stacks up nicely with most phones.

    You'll never convince me to carry 2 devices again, it's a pain in the neck. Besides as i stated earlier, when you're willing to pay 500 dollars for a pda, what's another 50 bux for a quality bluetooth headset? I had one, even with my razr, and the free'd up arms, the capability to do other things easily while talking on the phone, etc are very great things. If not, go to wal-mart and spend 10 bux on a headset, in the case of my 8125, it came with a decent headset, I guess they realized it's formfactor doesn't make for the greatest cellphone.

    RAZRs are still typically going for over $100 on ebay, especially if you have the original box, etc. You could cancel service and recover most of the ETF by selling the phone. Maybe ask TM for an unlock code, unlock the phone before terminating the service, and sell as unlocked.

    That's not a bad idea.

    In the fine print of every contract is a thing that says they aren't required to provide coverage in all areas -- so you don't have an out there.

    Multiply your monthly bill times 6 (the amount left in your contract) and if it's less than your ETF then you should keep the T-Mobile phone (but go get another wireless provider's phone so you have a usable line). If not, pay the ETF and jump ship. It's $200 per line for T-Mo I believe.

    Here's a suggestion: don't port your number right away. Try Cingular or Verizon or whatever and make sure it works at home, at the office, on the drive between, whatever... with whatever phone number they assign you.

    Once you've decided it works -- you have 15 days to try out the service -- then ask your new provider to port your T-Mobile number.

    DON'T CANCEL T-MOBILE. The port will automatically close your account (and charge the ETF) -- if you close your T-Mobile account, you will lose your number.
