    i would get it but did you notice the release date is written on the bottom? that's jacked up. I dont wanna carry around a "promotional" phone all the time. I want it to look like a real phone with tf designs than one that will always say the release date as long as i use it

    I'm not keen on it, it looks like an advertisement rather than a tf themed phone

    Ditto on the dislike of the release date. Otherwise looks pretty cool.

    In Japan, we can get giant, custom made stickers printed on clear plastic. They are almost like vinyls for cars. You can put them on ipods, mobile phones, DS Lites, etc.

    It is easy to make graphics like the one shown above for a regular version of that phone probably and then apply it. Then, copy the screen graphics to some extent (at least the screen saver), add some custom ringtones and voila: instant and cheaper copy.

    That's probably because that's what it is. Just like when you wear a TF shirt, that's an advertisement too. Or when you put your favorite sports team's logo on your car. Or when your shoe has the brand name written on the side.

    I'm amazed it's a Decepticon logo. 95% of "non-action figure" TF merchandise is only ever available in Autobot/Prime versions---been like that since 1984...

    Ha, I bought the regular version of this phone a month ago and I love it. It really is versatile and fun. Having the TFs theme on it would have made it just that much more fun. Anyway, for those that are wondering if it is a good phone, it is a very nice and useful phone.

    I like the design and the release date wouldn't bother me all that much. It would have to be an uber-cool piece of kit in order for me to replace Alice, my super sexy BlackBerry, with.

    If I were to get a cell phone, this would probably be it. However, I have no need for a cell phone. Or $200 to spare for one...
