Closest phone I've found is T385 model, It is similar to T375, but unlike T375 that has dual SIMs, T385 has one SIM like 840g
I've got the learn bug, is there a main post for discussion here at howard forum for this phone to share and learn tips and tricks, etc.?
I do have one question, on my home page, the toolbar with the call, contacts, messaging, more apps it has an arrow that shows a clock, notepad, various apps, when I click on them, they do nothing, is that normal? any way to enable them?

Pick the ones you want from the tray, click on each and drag them up onto any part of your home screen. You can drag them back and forth. Once you are finished click the arrow again and they will be active when you click on them. Think twice about dragging any shortcut up that you would not want to activate by accident.
To clarify my previous post:
There are three home screens - contacts/widgets/shortcuts - you are currently on the one shown in orange lettering at top of screen
You can swipe the screen on tap on the word to move between the three.
You can add or remove from each screen (tap the arrow or the gear symbol)

Why convert anything?
My LG500Gs would use AMR or MP3 for ringtones. No conversions needed.
My wife wife used a recording of my daughter for her main ringtone (still does on her S390G, same recording) and I used some home made MP3s (shortened and compressed to be under 300KB).
