I’ve selected the RIZR Z3 and will be adding a protective case (from elsewhere) to give it a unique, Ark II* kind of look. I have a new phone number now, so if you know me watch your email for an update. And of interest to everyone who may live in Boulder and are planning to get a new phone number from T-Mobile, I was told that you have a better chance of getting the desirable “303” area code if you arrive very early in the day, since on each day blocks of numbers are released in the morning and by lunchtime the 303s are gone and only the less-desirable 720s remain. Fortunately I went early in the day. Also, for $15 extra, they’ll show you what numbers are available and let you select the one you want.
