    I am considering changing my wireless phone provider (must be GSM) from
    tMobile to Centennial. Given some special considerations--(I am a
    totally blind phone user wanting to add speech output to a smart
    phone)--I have been told that either the 6682 or E-70 is compatible
    with Centennial. But I don't know if this carrier is able to offer any
    discount on the cost of the phone hardware or the speech software
    (TALKS) if I sign a certain type of service agreement with Centennial.
    Cingular does offer such a deal, but I'm concerned about the signal
    strength from Cingular to my area. (I live in and travel throughout
    northern Indiana and SW Michigan.)

    If anyone has insight, please let me know. Also, if anyone has good or
    bad reports about the durability, sound quality, features, etc., of the
    6682 or E-70, I will be very thankful for your response.

    Kind regards,

    I'm sure both phones are compatible (as long as the E70 is the US 850
    version) with Centennial (I read it using a GSM 850 network). Don't know if
    the operator provides these as subsidised phones, that is another issue,
    generally I would suggest getting an unbranded phone.

    E70 is based on S60, third edition while 6682 should be using an older S60
    version. You should check if the essential applications are available for
    S60 3.0. This used to be a problem but is getting better all the time. E70
    on the other hand is a later model and should have a bit more processing
    power. Don't know if this TALKS is a heavy application or not.

    I have no personal experience on either one and would not comment voice
    quality etc.

    I hope you enjoy the phone, whichever you decide to have.
