Summary: If you are on a tight budget and you want an android phone, consider this one. I originally had a Fender eition my-touch, but it got washed. Since I still had to pay for the data plan, I bought a standard my-touch (because that was all that was available at the time I searched E-bay). I don't like it. At least the Fender had a 3.5mm headphone jack. This one has a special mini-USB instead. The only way to listen to songs is with a retarded base you set it in.
Excerpt: I was happy when I first got it, but when I realized that t mobile was going to completely ignore the buyers of the original, I was not so happy. The phone lags and the non 3.5mm jack is horrendous. It forces you to purchase an adapter to use a 3.5mm headset and the adapter has a tendency for a short lifespan. and let us not forget that the newer mytouches have 2.0 android and the originals only run 1.6.
Excerpt: I HATE my phone! My touch my _! It was given to me as a Christmas present. I was so excited! Then, dropped calls, 10x longer to text, how many time should I have to touch the space bar before I get a space? 4? 5? 8? what? Ugh! 2x during the 2 weeks I had it I couldn't download emails for days. What is wrong with it? I have been to my TMobile store 10 times. I can't hear the phone in my purse half the time. Yes, the apps are fun...when they will run.
Pros: None that I felt worked well
Cons: Apps didn't work quickly, Texting stinks, Internet didn't browse quickly, Disconnected calls in places where my other TMobile phone never dropped
