There is no option for this. I would definitely like to have distinctive rings on my 7290 along with voice dialing and ringtone support along the lines of the 7100 series. However, those aren't really dealbreaking features, IMO.

No, but in time you'll learn when it's noth worthwhile to scroll to the bottom of the menu. ;)

I imagine they charge this because they can (see if you can get a better deal from another US carrier on data). You definitely won't be able to access a BES server unless you sign up for Blackberry service with BES access from T-Mobile. I think at one time there might have been a hole but they have definitely tightened things down.

It's all personal preference. Please use the search feature as this has been covered to death. I will say that the 7100's screen is sharper although it's unreadable in sunlight and has only one backlight brightness level. You've answered the browser difference question yourself.
