    i am looking at getting the t-mobile mytouch 3g, i was hoping
    i could get some questions answered here from those that know.
    1. what is the difference between the 3g(with 3.mm jack) and the 3g slide (other than
    the slide out keyboard)?
    2. what version of android is the 3g running?
    3. does the 3g have led notification light, or does the trackball light up?
    4. how is the 3g as a phone, call quality on each end??
    5. how is the speaker/spealer phone? very important!!
    6. in general how is the battery life for light users, say a couple
    calls, couple texts a day, light web surfing?
    7. any negatives that would make this phone a deal breaker?
    i am looking at this phone because of a few things. i like the size, it
    does not seem so huge as the droid x or evo. i find i really need a
    trackball when using the web. i have studied the vibrant and it seems
    awesome it is just missing a few things. i also do not like slide out
    keyboards, they bother me and make the phone to heavy,
    any help will be appreciated, thanks!!!

    1.the slide has a slightly better processor and a slightly bigger screen.
    2.It is running 1.6, but should get the 2.2 update before the end of the year.
    3.it has led notifications and the trackball lights up 2.
    4.I've been using this phone for about 5 months and the quality is really good, better than my old phone.
    5.its not super loud, but its not bad.
    6.i am a heavy user so my battery runs out fairly fast, but for lite use it should last you the whole day.
    7.i dont see anything bad about the phone, i think its great and i dont think the extra 50 bucks for a slightly better processor is worth it.

    1. what is the difference between the 3g(with 3.mm jack) and the 3g slide (other than
    the slide out keyboard)? slide has a faster processor and comes with 2.1
    2. what version of android is the 3g running?1.6
    3. does the 3g have led notification light, or does the trackball light up?it has an led and the trackball lights up.
    4. how is the 3g as a phone, call quality on each end?? I have had the g1, cliq, behold 2 and now the mt3g, good call quality and good reception.
    5. how is the speaker/spealer phone? very important!! speaker phone works well, able to hear clearly while driving
    6. in general how is the battery life for light users, say a couple
    calls, couple texts a day, light web surfing? i use mine alot for emails and texts, and maybe 20 calls a day, battery hasnt died from one day use yet.
    7. any negatives that would make this phone a deal breaker? dont know if you tech savvy or want to root, but it can be a pain to root if you dont know what your doing, im running cyanogen 5.08 (2.1) and its great.

    Hope that helps some..........
