    I think that the UMTS that is being used on the 8707 is 2100 mhz. cingular runs at 1900 mhz. i have been told that it will not work. this assumption is based off of information that has been told to me by data support (cingular customer service).

    I want one! Even if it's just to try it out for a week. If I can't have that, give me the OS, lol.

    Sorry Tae but it will not work, at least for UMTS. For phone service, I dont see why not, since its quad band.

    I have had it loaded on mine now for about a week or so. To be honest, I really don't see much of a difference.

    In theory, it should work, you will need the settings for the MediaNet, but other than that it should work.

    Re: BB 8707

    From what i can see with the OS install file it looks to have bothe GPRS and UMTS radio install properties so you should be able to use it for gprs if not edge.. an edge network is needed inorder to make UMTS work but does not mean the device has to be capable of handeling edge.. only UMTS but most handhelds have gprs default incase the UMTS goes down or ther eisnt enopugh spectrum because UMTS only reaches about 1/4 the distance of GPRS

    I've had it on my BB since seattle18 posted it up. I like it and I am really starting to like the Vodafone theme. But I thought the 8707 would have different OS completely.
