Default Looking for an Android

Okay, I know I have some pretty crazy needs.
Here's the absolute necessary:
-Cheap on eBay (<$150) used
-Usable on T-Mobile's 3G Network

Would be great if:
-Usable on T-Mobile's 4G Network
-Dual Core Processor
-Slide out QWERTY

Biggest Priorities for Function:
-Able to handle lots of SMS, MMS, Google Talk and Facebook Messaging, at home and on the go
-Stream music in the background as I do everything I do on the phone

Other needs:
-Fluid Multitasking
-At least 12 hours of battery life with moderate use
-Decent enough gaming to keep me entertained in waiting rooms

Are there any phones out there that can meet a fair amount of these needs?
Thanks, guys.

That's going to be tough to find, but most dual core phones have a screen that's big enough to make the stock android keyboard comfortable even in portrait mode.

Sorry don't know too many other TMo phones.

For now it's in between the myTouch 4G Slide or the HTC Amaze 4G.
The HTC Amaze 4G has 300 MHz faster processor, and about 260 MB more of RAM, as well as a 0.7" bigger screen.
The myTouch 4G Slide has a keyboard and costs an average of $50 less on eBay, which is important to me.

If you wait a bit the Galaxy Relay 4G (just released) will drift into your price range.

I have the same desired specs except I'm open to either TMo or ATT (basically any GSM) and I would prefer a candybar QWERTY to a slider QWERTY. Hoping others can chime in with some suggestions for me...

Yeah, the Relay is way appealing but the myTouch 4G Slide appeals more to the wallet

Okay, I'm kind of stuck here.
I love the myTouch 4G specs along with 4G speeds and a keyboard.
However, all of my friends have Apple products, so I like to stay in that ecosystem with them.
I can either:
-Get a used myTouch 4G and a cracked iPod Touch 4th Gen
Or:
-Get a used iPhone 4 to use on T-Mobile 3G network in awesome condition.

Which Android Gurus would like to give me their input on what I should do here?
