    I agree that the keypad is odd, but that's an easy fix. I just ordered a 3590 faceplate/keypad (regular 4 X 3 layout) and that fixed that. Other than it's not the smallest of phones I don't have anything bad to say about it. The reception on it cannot be beat!

    I've been using the Asian/Euro equivalent the 3510i when I've been overseas and have no complaints at all other than the fact that it's not the smallest thing around.

    The 3595 (and probably by extension) the 6010, aren't that good anymore for mobile web browsing. Since the T-Zones menus were changed, the 3595 displays garbage characters which the phone's browser obviously doesn't support. Old phones.

    I don't have any problem with my 6010.

    No offense to you Telekom, but I don't like the look of the phone, button shape, or multi-colored buttons of the Nokia 8310.

    There's a Nokia that I hated, my sister had one. All the buttons were combo buttons. Hitting the top of the button was 1 number, the bottom was another. I hated it. Don't know the model #. The following Nokia 7500 looks pretty ugly though...

    EDIT: I found it: The Nokia I hate is the Nokia 3200:

    The Nokia 3595 is actually a great performing phone and great for reception. The keypad did suck but its easily interchangeable with its sister phone the 6010 which had individual keys.

    The 3595 and 6010 where the best reception phones I have had. These were the only GSM phones I had that interfered with electronics.

    The 3595's "two on a key" buttons could also be replaced with a 3590 cover which had the traditional 3 X 4 keypad design.

    LOL at the 7280 - that is either a pack of gum or a Wiimote
