    Yup ... TMO is going to have to lower their prices, for sure! The Sprint 8830 has been pretty available today from all of the usual sources. Showed up on eBay today too ... $99.95 from a couple of sellers.

    I've purchased from one of them previously and arranged to order an 8830 a few hours ago as well.

    Once it arrives (friday?) I'll let anyone interested know the seller name/details too (if interested). They've been pretty good to deal with and if you commit to a new line w/ 2 yrs service "AND" a voice plan + BB data plan ... the $100 MIR brings the price effectively down to $0.

    Allllllright!!! UPS just dropped off my 8830

    All I can say is "WOW" ... maybe double-WOW

    I looooooooove it! Compared to my T-Mobile Pearl, it is larger (a good thing for these old eyes ) hence the screen is larger/brighter/sharper too. The BB Internet Browser is fast, VERY fast ... and that is only on 1xRTT so far. Still - much faster than the Pearl.

    Keyboard is fine, no issues. Email is already flowing in ... piece of cake to set-up.

    Music Player is niicely improved too over the Pearl, organizes all of your MP3s by Song+Artist+Album and even Genre ... nice!

    More later; my wife says "Your lunch has been sitting here for 2 hrs now" ... MUST EAT!!!

    Mine was waiting for me when i got home from work. Its up and running fine, but im not sure i love it as much as my 8703. Maybe it"ll need an adjustment period, i dont know. Feels solid, I hate the holster, and i am still looking for the scrollwheel on the side.

    Im just glad to have the new BB, I use the included case while at work, and love my Boxwave Active Case for everywhere else.

    After you remove the battery cover you can see it directly to the left of the memory card slot. You can remove the memory card without removing the battery, but to take the sim out you also have to take out the battery.
