Samsung Trender quietly appears on Sprint's lineup for $29.99 on-contract

Almost similar to the previous Samsung Seek, the Trender is packing a physical landscape-sliding keyboard, but more importantly, it’s Sprint’s very first CDMA device that will run on the ESMR band (817-824MHz and 862-869MHz). Naturally, the availability of the ESMR brand comes along as Sprint intends to phase out the iDEN technology they inherited from Nextel.
Sadly, while nearly identical to the Samsung Seek, the one great thing was the option to set the phone up with a new limited time plan for 49.99 with unlimited talk and text w/ picture mail. However the plan was canceled about 3-4 days ago in the sprint internal news, for no apparant reason, which makes this phone back to being 100% boring

the phone is a nice upgrade from the samsung seek. its got a larger screen and a faster processor. the major difference however is the capacitive touch screen, it makes a HUGE difference. its a GREAT messaging device.

You can't set ringtones from the memory card, so sayeth the folks at the Sprint store. After, of course, they said the opposite to get me to take the phone. If ringtones are important, I'd get a different phone. Me, I'm looking at getting a new carrier; getting lied to repeatedly by Sprint kinda makes me interested to see what else is out there. If anyone knows of a national carrier that has a phone that can take ringtones through USB and send pictures out through USB, a reply would be most appreciated.
