    MyFaves Tmo Accessible on Unlocked Cingular 8800?

    Advertisement



    i'm looking to get a cingy 8800

    however, the tmo one is myfaves compatible which i know is updated through their server autmoatically if i add myfaves to my plan

    so, question is,

    if i get an unlocked 8800, put the myfaves plan as my tmo plan, will it update and allow me to use myfaves on the unlocked 8800?

    anyone have an unlocked one using it on tmo and have success with the myfaves?

    Are you getting the cingy 8800 new or used? If new, why not just by the T-Mo version instead?

    i was getting a deal on craigs, and no one else is selling a tmo version on craigs. do you know where i can find a good deal on a new/used one?

    is the tmo one also that charcoal grey or black?

    Can you just load the TMO OS for the myfaves app? I've never looked into it (I'm with at&t).

    It should work because it is updated from the TMo systems. I updated my Pearl to the new AT&T OS and myfaves still loaded up just fine which I didn't even think about when installing the new OS. So it shouldn't be a problem at all for the unlocked one to receive the myfaves app.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~The software and modules must be installed in order My Faves to run on your device. You can get the plan w/o the icon appearing, but if u want the actual app it has to be installed. Search this forum for installing My Faves on an 8700. Many have done this, and it works. The same should apply for an 8800; all that is needed is to download the TMO OS for the 8800,copy a few of the My Faves modules, and make some modifications to your current Cingy OS. Check for details on this forum. Should work.

    Also, if you are weary of making this conversion work. Do a Craigslist post offering a one to one trade for a TMO 8800 in like condition. I had a Cingular/AT&T 8800 that I got for a great price on Ebay. I offered to trade for a TMO 8800. I got a rsponse in one day and had a like quality TMO device in two. Give it shot. You never know who's looking in your area. It's free.
