This is getting horribly off-topic, but I'll bite. I wanted a phone with a physical QWERTY keyboard, snappy web browser, IMAP client, GPS navigation, and connectivity via WiFi and T-Mobile USA's "4G" data network. That's it--no games, no "app store", no camera, no "mobile TV", no NFC...

What phone should I have bought, and from whom?

If things like "no camera" and "no NFC" are hard requirements, your options are probably extremely limited. If that's the case, IMHO you should reconsider your priorities if you prefer to give your money to someone that installs "a trial version of a virus scanner" on an Android device rather than having NFC and camera on it.

Oh, no, I meant those items are irrelevant to my decision. I'm perfectly happy to ignore features I don't need (provided they don't cause any harm).

So, given that, do you have any suggested phones for me to look at? I can still return this one...

The Relay 4G is the phone I just bought, which fits my needs. I was just curious what mastro would have recommended that apparently wouldn't have come loaded with T-Mobile/Samsung bloatware.
