    First off, don't drop a T68i into a glass of water. Not good for them!
    Second, if you do, don't do it at 2am when you're not of sound mind and,
    instead of immediately removing the battery, you fumble for the on-off
    switch. Get the battery off the danged thing as quickly as possible and
    you've got a chance!

    OK, so I've got a T68i that doesn't work any more (and yes, took it apart,
    cleaned it up, etc. but the on-off switch won't work anymore... it actually
    did work for a day and a half before dying).

    Do I get another T68i, or is there something newer that would be a better
    choice? I need a Tri-band phone (for use in the US and France). I really
    liked the size & features of the T68i, although reception could have been
    better (but that also might be a reflection on AT&T GSM in the SF Bay Area;
    in even the remotest regions of France, it was fantastic).

    Thanks-

    What are the advantages over the T68i? One thing I really don't need is a
    built-in camera; in fact, that could actually be a problem, as there are
    some places that don't allow cameras (and check for cell phones).

    Better RF performance, bigger screen. Have you considered finding another
    T68i on Ebay?

    Re: need replacement for T68i

    Nokia makes a 3500 series that might be tri-band?

    Yep, took a look at the eBay options, but they run nearly as much as a new,
    unlocked one (about $175).

    A bigger screen *would* be nice, given that the eyes just don't work like
    they used to!

    Hardly a match for the T68i.

    Nope. All the 3500 series are specific to either North American
    (3590/3595 for 850/1900 or Euro/Asian 3510/3510i for 900/1800.) Many
    others such as the 6610 are tri band and will work in North America
    and in Europe/Asia.
