My UPS delivery person obviously didn't feel like doing there job today. I was lucky enough to have the day off today so I sat home constantly checking the tracking page. My delivery guy normally delivers around 1:30pm so I knew something was wrong when I was still sitting here hours later with no change in the tracking info. I just went and checked again and the delivery person put me as unavailable to deliver 20 mins ago. Thats messed up.

I was pretty surprised but not that surprised because I did the same thing last spring for the pearl 8120. I Think if you go through the right "channels" when calling t-mobile, and you say just the right things, you can get an upgrade with the best available price anytime during any contract
(you just keep renewing the extensions).
I personally think 200 bucks for the javelin is a fair price for a brand new (newly released) blackberry curve.

So is that true?? If you talk to the customer loyalty dept you can get a better deal? I've been with Tmobile for 5 years...will they really give me a better deal? Who can I talk to?

I'm going to load .133 for sure. Been hearing great things about it.

At the UPS site, after I enter my reference number it displays, "Your package is on time with a scheduled delivery date of 01/28/2009."
I noticed a little further down the page where the tracking info is located it states," Location Date Local Time Description CHELMSFORD,
MA, US 01/26/2009 2:53 P.M. ARRIVAL SCAN "
I am fairly confident mine will show up a day earlier than the scheduled delivery time only because it was in Chelmsford, MA on the 26th at 3pm, and Chelmsford is less than two hours away from me. It should definitely not take until Wednesday to deliver a package that is so close to the final destination.
I am bubbling with anticipation!!!
No matter, this will be a worthwhile upgrade to my falling-apart pearl 8120 (Still works great, just cosmetcally damaged from rough treatment).
Anyone know if there will be any tough semi-weather proof cases coming out for the 8900?

I'm sure there will be many good choices of cases soon. Since Rogers has been selling it for some time the aftermarket has easy access to them.

lol...its definitely necessary for me to get one of those otterbox hard cases or something similar considering that no matter how hard I try to baby my cellular devices, they always end up looking like they have gone through a war-zone if they even make it to a full year's worth of use.
I would like to make the 8900 last until the iphone is no longer an exclusive to at&t. By that time the iphone may have some REAL competition coming from Blackberry, or perhaps a different manufacturer's device running an android OS, or maybe from a company with something even better...who knows. I do know that I do have the patients to wait it out for future upgrades and exclusives, and to stick with t-mobile because of my unbeatable service and high minutes/low monthly payments.
If my 8900 shows up today (its scheduled to arrive tomorrow, but is presently less than two hours away by car), I will be sure to report back here with my first impressions.

Otterbox makes an outstanding product, that offers many advantages. I'm sure you will find it ideal for your needs.

ssnxp the white sounds awesome but the only problem is that youd have to paint in between the keys and therefore remove the keyboard from the faceplate.
Thats the mistake that Colorware made on the 8900. Leaving the keyboard as is.
If you CAN do that ill send you a full faceplate so you can paint it white for me. An all white 8900 .... heaven.
In the meantime, i have somebody that is coming over from Montreal to install my black bezel on the 8900 !! Cant wait !! Ill post pictures later
