Waah! The best looking faceplate has the previous style keypad!
Nokia 3589 cell phone. For $50, it packs a whollop in terms of performance. (beats the snot out of Sprint, that's for sure.)

Has changeable faceplates, what a great way for customize!

I bought a shimmering royal blue faceplate today for $9 but it uses an older keypad design (as seen on the 3585). On close inspection, the 3589 is the same case as the 3585 except for the sleeker keypad.

Obviously I prefer the newer look of the 3589 keypad, otherwise I wouldn't whine. :D

I did a search on the internet and found many faceplates that conform to the newer 3589 keypad style, but the colors/designs are ugly.

Sigh. I'll probably keep the faceplate. It's only $10, but the shimmering royal blue looks far better than the navy blue that the stock faceplate has.

I'm astounded by even more frivolous expansions such as a clear faceplate with a battery containing flashing LEDs... :eyes: While this Nokia handles its battery life far better than the twice as expensive Motorola T730, I don't see the point of flashing lights on a battery... :shrug:

2. You do realise that...
...thousands of years from now, this message will arrive in another galaxy, and that galaxy may be inhabited by life-forms who will decode it with technology we can't even imagine, and still not have a clue what you're talking about?

4. Well, that sums me up but what do you think of my message?
Of course, I think you're meaning I was too dense to include pics - see http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=105&topic_id=602269#602395 for more... :evilgrin:
