    Hello.

    I am a t-mobile customer but know Att phones work with t-mobile sim cards.

    I need a new phone. I'm looking for one that syncs with my outlook 2008 calender. I dont need the email and such, just the calender.

    Also, i would like a camera on it.

    Any suggestions? I'm looking for a good priced one too. I dont need the Treo or anything that expensive. Thanks!

    Hi there, welcome to CPF.

    Keep in mind that, AT&T phones will not work with T-Mobile SIM out of the box. At a minimum they will need to be unlocked. Also in order to access the web or send mms, an AT&T branded phone will need to configured for the T-Mobile settings.

    About synching calendars, just about every phone does it but unless you consider a SmartPhone, meetings with irreregular recurring patterns have a tendency to not synch.

    How abouth the Blackjack II, any interest? Again you would have to get an unlocked one.

    Unfortunately not if you don't want to go into the Treos or Tilts. I do know that the 6126 has a problem with some recurring calendar events.

    I hope someone else chimes in here with some suggestions for you.

    Good luck

    PS: You may want to look at the Centro, it is a Palm but quite reaonably priced.

    I would suggest looking at the line of blackberries as well. They are not to expensive and they will work with outlook. I would give the curve a looking at.
    Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

    There you go honestly I think that the Centro would be a great choice for you. I know for a fact it will do what you want and more. The plus is that it is probably the best deal in wireless for the price and for what you get with it.

    Re: I need help finding a new cell phone

    A quick thought if you're looking at a phone that is purchased on the internet. My phone (Samsung g810 - T-Mobile) will not work on AT&T frequencies - don't know if there's many AT&T phones that won't work on T-Mobile.

    All quad-band phones will work, aside from the unlocking/configuration issues though. Also, may want to check the T-Mobile thread about data plans - some unsupported phones are having difficulty connecting to T-Zones and data plans.

    Perhaps some screen shots of various phones will help you find the answer. For calendar views, I prefer BB or Windows Mobile. BB is easier for me to see on the today screen, Windows because I like how it's laid out. My Symbian phone (I have a packed work schedule) tends to cut off calendar entries occasionally - simply a matter of going to the Calendar day view, but I prefer having everything on the "today" (or whatever it may be called on other O/S) screen so I can check it at a glance.
