Bwahaha - the Star Trek?

Looks kinda neato, but the Star Trek? What an odd name.

[insert William Shatner endorsement joke here]

[insert phone somewhat resembling Leonard Nimoy here]

So I wonder if this will go to TM or Cingular? I guess no, but one never knows. . .

Got mine ...

... and I'm quite happy with it, at least until the next new phone catches my eye. Very Happy

I bought from and was impressed: good price, personal contact.

The 8500 was buggy at first. A couple of the weird things may have been just me. For example, at first I couldn't get it to find a signal at all. Thread: 960760

Then it wouldn't disconnect from VM (I assume because the other end didn't hang up). Thread: 963002

Finally, I had the known issue of the phone falling into a deep sleep and missing calls. The "band aid" worked for me. Thread: 962687

After the couple of days...

Missed calls

For any of you on this forum considering a purchase of this phone under the QTek 8500 brand, beware. It's got a MAJOR bug with missing calls and not dispalying a voice mail indicator. For details go here: »

Cingular it is (will features be different)!

Boy Genius (through Engadget-Mobile) is reporting that Cingular is planning to release the Smartflip/8500/Star Trek in late August/September. I assume it will will be branded under the Cingular name (as is the Cingular 8125). ... »

My question is, when released by Cingular, is there any chance the features may be slightly different (maybe 128MB instead of just 64MB, etc).

Cingular will have this phone

Cingular will launch this phone later on this year. This was on the planned rollout with no release or drop date as of yet.

I would love to get my hands on this phone! Cingular should pick this up, because Tmo is getting the blackberry connect samsung flip phone later this summer.

I can always hope right?
