Ahhhh i remember wanting this phone badly. It came out sometime in 2002 through at&t wireless and i couldnt get it because i wasnt 18 and couldnt put the service under my name. Crazy how this phone was soooo amazing to me at one point.

I remembered I had that phone for like 2 weeks. It was solidly built and the color screen was AWESOME. The only downfall was it camera attachment...which I am not a fan of carrying attachment. I think this was a James Bond phone if I remembered correctly.

i used to have one of these, its a joystick, its key feature was it had GPRS internet. the camera attachment was like $109 so i didnt get it. the build was nice though, had a good feel to it.

I still have this phone in my house and it was so revolutionary back then and way ahead of it's time. Today's mobile phones have all spring boarded from the SE T68i. So small and good features for that time. Excellent for Phone Arena to make it the second phone into the Retro-Rewind line-up.

I remember owning the T68i. As I recall, the color display and the UI were real standouts for me. I thought it was the coolest little phone in sooo many ways... save ONE: It couldn't hold a signal to save its life. Between dropped calls -- and the inability to get a signal at all -- the T68i's charms paled quickly. Shame.

I owned this one too, the color screen was amazing at the time. And the design was light-years ahead of anything else on the market. Of all the phones I owned this one probably impressed me most.
