I have had it with this phone. The camera is slow, the battery life is absolutely horrible, most apps force close and the phone locks up after I end most calls. The only fix if the screen doesn't come back is to remove the battery. Yikes! I didn't by the insurance so I can't literally drop kick it into next week otherwise I would. I called T-Mobile about upgrading early and they won't budge (even though I have been a customer for over 7 years without one late payment). That's gratitude for you. They did say I can upgrade but it would be close to $400 for an HTC Amaze or Galaxy S II which is there latest and greatest. I would be willing to try one of these phones and even extend my contract but If I am going to spend that kind of money for a phone I will just wait out my contract and get the iphone 4S or iphone 5 when they come out and they usually run $99 or $199 depending on the iphone.
In the meantime, I need to do something. Any suggestions? Is there a site on the internet that sells refurbished, open box or scratch and dent phones that I can get my hands on without a contract? Don't say ebay because the prices are ridiculous, I have no idea if the phone even works until they have my money and I don't want to get stuck with a Chinese fake or knockoff.

I know you said "don't say eBay," but I'm still gonna say it: eBay.
You can get good prices there; just bid low. It might take several tries before you win, but you will eventually, And only bid on items with a return policy so you won't get stuck.
That's how I got my MyTouch 4G, for $218, no contract. And it works great........Jake
Have you tried doing a factory reset on the MT4G?
You might want to take some time and check the steps located here: http://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-2726 - I have had many Android phones and sometimes too many apps, or even one can cause these types of issues. Let us know if this helps! T-Force is here to assist you in any way possible.
Thanks for posting,
I factory rest the phone and formatted the SD card. I then installed the latest and greatest software for the MT4G that I downloaded form the internet. The phone seems to be working fine so far without any of the issues.
Beats the heck out of drop kicking it, huh?
