    I have just moved to T68i from T39m given the value for money of a T68i
    these days. Also, the late firmware should be relatively bug free. In
    use, I note that RF reception is no different in between the two. On
    the negative side, T68i sounded a tad tinnier than T39m.

    Actually, as WW2 had ended, farmers here in Sweden were allowed to convert
    used cars to vehicles to pull various tools needed on the fields, and were
    allowed to use them without a driver's licence, provided that the gearbox
    was jammed so that only one or two gears plus the reverese gear could be
    used, thus limiting the maximum speed to about 30 kilometers per hour.
    Passenger seats should also be removed, and there shold be a platform for
    cargo available too. These kinds of vehicles have survived up to today's
    date, and cars ar still converted to this kind of crippled vehicle by young
    people who want to drive a "car" a few years before they are allowed to
    drive a real one and are able to obtain a driver's licence for it. Nowadays,
    the same license that is required to drive a motorcycle is required.

    Otherwise, my point was not actually to find a car with only one gear, but
    that I am a little confused about why people buy mobile phones with lots of
    functions that they are not planning to use. I just recently read, that
    there have been sold between 1.5 and 2 million mobile phones here in Sweden
    that are ready for GPRS and WAP but there are only about 100.000 subscribers
    of the GPRS services.

    In this particular case, it seems that I have somewhat misunderstood "J.
    Peterman", but I think that we have cleared that out.

    I don't mind it so much. I've typed in my whole phonebook (for practice) and
    used as many of my free sms last night and didn't really mind it. Strange,
    cos I thought it could be a problem.

    However, I have used plenty worse than this. My other two phones suck. Nokia
    7650 gets too much dust in it and eventually some buttons don't register
    unless you press them extra hard. And, you can't open it to clean it at all.
    My Motorola A830 is hard to press like T610, but the buttons are a little
    more "squishy", so yeah, T610 is ok in my books.

    Sorry, I was just pulling your leg and forgot the smiley.
    I just thought the analogy a little off - don't buy a phone with
    features you don't need, like you buy a car with only first gear if you
    don't go fast.

    Very interesting though!

    Correct. Phone life cycle is very short. Nuy one those with feature you
    want.
    You can always pick one another year later with better design and cheaper
    price.

    I had it on my T39m, T29 and on my T28. I was horrified when it wasn't on
    the T610...
    SE also changed the menu-navigation, the key-lock and moved the
    "Space"-button...
    But I think the T610 is one of the best phones on the market nowadays...

    Sorry, I was just pulling your leg and forgot the smiley.
    I just thought the analogy a little off - don't buy a phone with
    features you don't need, like you buy a car with only first gear if you
    don't go fast.

    Very interesting though!

    Re: URGENT: last minute question about t610 before I get one!

    Correct. Phone life cycle is very short. Nuy one those with feature you
    want.
    You can always pick one another year later with better design and cheaper
    price.

    I had it on my T39m, T29 and on my T28. I was horrified when it wasn't on
    the T610...
    SE also changed the menu-navigation, the key-lock and moved the
    "Space"-button...
    But I think the T610 is one of the best phones on the market nowadays...
