Sony Ericsson and T-Mobile have teamed up for the first time in four years to offer the 3G-equipped TM506. It is capable in many departments, but falls short in others.

Love this phone. It is fun and so easy to navigate. Large window display is a great feature and soft touch keys are nice to use. All around, very cool phone.

Decent phone


My bill is a lot lower than when I had the Blackberry curve. Miss that phone but dont miss the bill.

Good phone, slim design and some corny features

GPS doesnt work for nothing, Im in the los angeles area and it keeps saying signal too week then sends me somewhere in san fran. I really dont need the GPS anyways but kinda pointless to have a feature that doesnt work. Besides its a 14 day trial anyways
