    I'm eligible for the T-Mobile upgrade with 2 year extension and was thinking about getting the T-Mobile MDA. Is it a good phone? Better than the 6700?

    6700 in my opinion is better. 3G network vs 2.5G. 416mhz processor vs 200. Uber cheap Sprint Data vs T-mobiles. Extra set of buttons. The MDA has its pros like battery life and it being GSM, but nothing GREAT in my opinion. Data is a HUGE thing for these devices and the slower network is kind of a hinderance in my opinion. Having said all that, I will probably be buying an 8125 soon, lolol.

    The MDA is as good as the 6700 and maybe even better for most of us. While the 6700 has EVDO access for fast data, its speaker for speakerphone is not nearly as good and the battery life is not as long as on the MDA. It is a toss up in the end as to which device is truly better, but the network will make the biggest difference so consider that first. I prefer the relative freedom of GSM and Edge is fairly quick, but if you do a great deal of web browsing or other other data intensive things you may prefer Sprint. If you mostly do light browsing and lots of messaging the MDA might actually be better with T-Mobile.

    Hmm, I do a lot of web browsing. I already had the 6700 though and never used wifi because the battery will wouls wear out real fast. I didn't like how it felt like a brick too.

    MDA is pretty much the same form factor as the 6700 except for the lack of antennae and rounder edges + slightly different cosmetic changes (like the keyboard). If you considered the feel of the 6700 like a brick you will likely feel the same way about the MDA. BTW, the MDA also has wi-fi.

    I am cingular guy, but have the chance to get a T-Mobile MDA for $100. I should be able to get it unlocked no problem, anything else I should be weary of, or should I wait and spend more to get the 8125.

    if you do buy an MDA· unlock it and flash with the latest Imate KJam rom! some of ,y friemds have done this and the new rom is much much better than the TMobile one. It supports MS Direct Push email, which is very cool. one guy I know is overclocking the MDA with OMAP clock and it works quite well. get one if you can buy it cheaply, XDA Developers has tons of great info on it.

    The MDA is fantastic! As the above post says.. you can upgrade the ROM for a peppier OS(i went for the Mr. Clearn ROM), and also have overclocked it to 240mhz so I can use Skype with no problem. The new rom also offers full A2DP.
