    Best Looking Thin T-Mobile phone?

    Hi I hooked up with a girl working as a sales rep at a reseller selling Verizon and T-mobile products.

    I told her about my experience in modding Motorola phones. She told me there are customers asking her about modding Moto V3s. I told her I can teach her how to mod and she agreed to give me a phone around the price of a Moto V3.

    So my question is, what phone should I get? I just want a thin and good looking phone. Is Moto V3i the best I can get? Are there other phones that are also thin and good looking supplied by T-Mobile?

    Thanks in advance!

    The only thing T-Mo supplies thats thin and not crap is the v3. No one is providing the v3i yet, and the Slvr is Cingular.

    Thanks for your reply. So I guess I have to ask for a V3 then.

    What colors does T-Mobile have for the V3?

    Just because they're not supplying them does not mean you can't GET a V3i - but I guess you probably couldn't get it from that girl.

    A word: You need to make it clear to your friend, and she needs to make it clear to her customers, that flashing or flexing a phone VOIDS the manufactures warranty, and that she is not responsible for any problems arising from it.

    If she starts sending customers (who, on average, are the stupidest people in the world) out the door with a smile on thier face, ready to mod thier phones, she could have a few nasty cases of very angry people blaming her for dead phones and OOW fees.

    Probably not going to be a problem, but it only takes one angry customer to cause problems.
    Vonage voice with dedicated fax number... $45.16.
    Time warner highspeed internet and TV... $127.14.
    T-Mobile Family plan... $134.38.

    Chasing after family members and room mates to collect on thier share of the bill... priceless.

    Nobody here is aware of the Samsung T809? Much better phone than the V3 or even the V3i.
    CDMA - a great technology, hobbled by greedy carriers and a closed business model. Its a pity, really.

    Maybe it is because it is not that thin? It is 0.94 inch thick.

    compared to the .54 of the razr it is a negligible difference. they use the same pouch for that matter!

    Unfortunately, Samsung slim phones appear to be plagued with battery problems, even in GSM trim.

    The t809 is .6" thick. I think you might be confusing it with the e635.

    Also, the t809 is horrible... Don't buy it! Dust gets under the screen cover, the battery life sucks, and your callers will complain of a buzzing sound whenever you are near a wi-fi network, which is much more often than you might think.
