In my opinion, the TNT! is like the marbl, but faster. i barrowed the marbl for a few days and it was sooooooooooo slow it felt like time stood still. So i saw the TNT! and brought it, it was soooooo fast. Thank god i brought it when i did because i was getting fustrated with the marbl

The MARBL was a great little phone for the price; I'm still using one, and quite happy with it. However, it is no longer sold, as far as I know. Kyocera makes good phones; I also have a JAX and like it, but not as much as the MARBL. The TNT is newer and even better. Seems like you can't go wrong with Kyocera.

I had the Marbl phone for almost 3 years. I remember I had to get a new one like 5 months ago because the warranty expired on the phone. I love TNT better than Marbl because TNT is much thinner, text messages send faster, internet comes up quicker and Marbl is just too slow. And the TNT keys are easy to press without accidently pressing the wrong keys. I still have the Marbl phone. I would just give it away since no one thinks its worth anything. TNT is a great phone mainly because of its convience.

The TNT is WAAAAAAy faster; the Marbl, which i think the worst phone in ten yrs, is sooooo painfully slow its unsuable for someone who texts alot, or wants to read news/data on the wap 2.0; it is so slow i threw it out of the window on the Dan Ryan in Chicago- i couldnt get the thing to text fast enough for my work needs, the TNT is faster, keeps up, easier only 5 or 10 bux more, and is wonderful in the texting arena. The data download time, for text based stuff, like news and weather, is ok, but the super slice and wild card are the fastest for data downloads; they are pretty much as fast as the 3g shuttle. i have had the best (wildcard) and i have had the worst (marble or k9) and this TNT is more on the better side, than the other.

The TNT is about 25% thinner and the keys are easier to use. The external display is better because you can see who is calling without opening the phone-this is nice because you do not have to disable "open to answer" to avoid answering unwanted calls. All in all a much better phone and still very reasonably priced.
The TNT is much lighter to hold or pack. I can type texts much faster with the TNT than the Marbl I had before the TNT. The keypad is smooth feeling, good sized keys. The VXL browser screen on the TNT shows how many kbs of data transfer when pages load. AND, the TNT has a lot more storage space than the Marbl has, like 29megabytes compared to just a few on the Marbl which means a lot of storage for graphics, ringtones, etc. The 'highlight' function on web pages needs to be easier to see on the TNT, on some pages almost invisible, and I was unable to send email with my MSN mobile (the screen would roll while typing and it wouldn't send) but that could just be a bug with my phone and not apply to all TNT's. I could send mobile emails with the Marbl but it was slower to type on, it lagged behind my typing speed. I love the TNT on every point better than the Marbl, except that fluke with my mobile email. And I like the flat bottom on the TNT that allows it to sit flat on a table while browsing or texting instead of holding it to type. The Marbl is flat bottomed too.
