The bad news is that currently, T-Mobile doesn't appear to offer any
Series 60 phones. The good news is that one can acquire such a phone
from other sources; Letstalk.com for one; tigerdirect for another;
and eBay for a third. Model numbers to look for are: Nokia 6600,6630,
6620, 6670, 6680, 6681, 6682, N70, N90, NGage, and NGage QD. Some of
these phones are discontinued, and it's true that you won't get any
of these as freebies.
One observation, though. I wouldn't say that the lack of an
accessible phone constitutes discrimination. Discrimination is a term
that's thrown around quite a lot and not necessarily accurately. Of
course, that accessible phones are available and not offered isn't
right, and I agree that accessible phones should be available,
especially since the law says that something should be offered, or
something. But that isn't discrimination.
