    I don't know if you should wait for the 9700 as you said you were with T-Mobile, and isn't their 3G pretty spotty? Of course the 9700 has some other improvements in addition to 3G, but the 8900 is a great Blackberry and I don't think you will be disappointed if you go that route!

    IF the 9700 comes out Nov. 11 as stated above, it will be a brand new BB with the possibility of problems as we have seen with other new releases. That means you could wind up waiting a few months to get a reliable 9700 or get a reliable 8900 right now! Just my 2 cents... :-)

    PS - I am definitely planning to go to the 9700 but that is only because I have an upgrade available and I like trying new BBs. I am very, very happy with my 8900.

    Check Walmart's site. They show the Blackberry 8900 for free either new or upgrade for T-Mobile customer. Can't beat free and the 8900 is an awesome phone.

    Well I will just fill you in on the few issues with the 8900. The GPS is VERY slow some people have reported refresh rates of up to 15 minutes. Mine personally takes about 30 seconds. Once the GPS does sync and you are driving there is about a 3 second delay so finding streets close together is difficult when driving faster than the GPS can update.

    Another issue is using UMA support through access points. Some people have reported UMA only works when they are linked with the main router. I have personally experienced this in some networks. In others it works, it seems it depends on the networks architecture.

    Other than those two issues the phone is pretty flawless and I upgraded to my 8900 from a 8100. I don't regret choosing my 8900 over the iPhone.

    I just got an 8900 and really like it. Working on customizing it to my tastes right now. The wi-fi is great and so far, when I don't have a wi-fi connection the EDGE seems to be working well. I like it a lot better than the 8310 that I used to have.

    That's what I did and my 8900 has been great to me. I'm glad to hear you're content with your device. I know you'll enjoy it very much. To me the 8900 is THE BB to have nowadays.

    I just got my 8900 a few days ago. I had the 8330 (great phone). I'm really liking the 8900. Tons of memory. Besides being a awesome phone so far, the screen absolutely awesome. However I may have lost my mind cuz I can't find the alarm!

    Cool thanks Raton! Bummer it doesn't work with the "R" shortcut. But thank you. By the way, I'm using your modern 8900 theme. Very nice. Although I like larger font its a great theme.
