    So, is it something I can subscribe to, get it pushed to my BB, and then cancel? Or will cancelling take the icons away?

    cancel will take them away. You have to have MyFavs to get the application.

    I have heard that they will stay after canceling (according to some on the Pearl boards). They could push the service books to you to make it appear, but more than likely won't, although you could call CSR and ask them to as the worst they could do is say "No", but since it is T-Mo they at least would say it nicely!!

    My faves is a feature that needs to be provisioned on the acct. When it's active, it works. When its not, it doesn't.

    Correct the MyFaves billing won't work but the interface does stay and can be used for visual speed dialing just no free billing as with the MyFaves, at least that is how some on the Pearl boards are reporting it and I think that is what he is wanting. Just the quick speed dialing interface, and there would be no way to change the contact as the app conmects to the account to update the contacts.

    Yes but I don't think the interface comes up until the MyFaves is servicee book is added. When I activated my two lines, the wifes device came right up when I turned it on (the provisions were already on the account) but mine never did show up. I had to call T-Mo and they resent the service book and re-provisioning for my line and then it showed on my device. These were 2 brand new Curves (which are both MyFave devices).

    Yes, I just want it for visual speed dialing. Exactly. I am not a software kind of guy, but someone who is should develop a JAVA app that mimics the MyFaves app.

    So I wonder if I could insert my friend's sim card, who does have myfaves, get the icons provisioned, and then swap back to my sim card. I will try it tomorrow.

    there are other programs that do just this that you can buy.... my treo 750 had a speed dial pack for the today screen that you could put 10 contacts by name or 5 by photo thumbnail

    I wouldn't recommend swapping SIM cards. It wouldn't help since you account needs to be tied to a MyFavs account for it to get sent down. Also TMO has to send it to you. Just swapping cards won't get you the app.

    It's not meant for NON-Myfavs users.

    Re: Is there a way to get the T-Mobile MyFaves icons without subscribing?

    I have an unlocked ATT curve. For S&G's I put my friends T-mo sim in it. I forgot she had a myfaves plan and the whole thing downloaded onto my phone. I cant get rid of it now. All the icons and the bubbles. I could obviously hide the bubbles but they are still there if I choose. They are unfortunately programmed with her "Faves" but the numbers are still there and callable.

    I wish I could get this off as Im sure its taking up valuable memory. Ive tried a wipe, delete and anything else I thought would work but it keeps saying its not deletable.
