My T-mobile phone is still on the dark side

Can you suggest a good, cheap, hopefully easily-available-on-ebay-used T-mobile phone? I don't need a ton of features, but I want something that does all the basic stuff really well.

My ex-gf gave me her old AT&T phone, which I unlocked and got a SIM card to use with T-Mobile's no contract plan. The phone works well enough, sounds good, etc. But texting is a nightmare (totally clumsy interface), accessing voicemail is a pain and the phone is generally not fun to use at all.
I'd like to find another simple phone that works better than this one. Basically I need something that is easy to use for text messages and voicemail. If it had a basic, useable web browser, that would be great but not essential. If it had a keyboard, that would be great too, but more of a priority is small size.
The phone I have seems favor AT&T even after unlocking (all the apps refer to AT&T and say "not available" after I unlocked it). So something that works natively with T-mobile would be great).
I'd be looking for this phone on ebay unless otherwise directed.
