Nice now where is the S2 announcement????
I'm wondering if I should get this one instead of the 9700 because of the dedicated media keys on the top of the phone. I wonder if they will combine the dedicated media keys from the 8520 and the 3G features of the 9700 (HSDPA capable; UMTS/HSPA 2100 MHz capable; WiFi: 802.11 b/g) and release them all in one.
I just compared the prices of the 8520, 8900, 9000 and 9700 on AT&T vs T-Mobile. AT&T ($149.99 for the Curve 8900, $199.99 for the Curve 8520, and $199.99 for the Bold 9000) will be $300 LESS than T-Mobile ($381.99 for the Curve 8900, and $239.99 for the Curve 8520, and $419.99 for the Bold 9700 ) even on a 2 yr upgrade

What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?
I have to agree....tmo is the worst service. I had no service at work and none when I moved into a new area; there prices r fair but whts the point if u can get a signal to make a call. I'll stick with AT&T for right now.
