Torch 9810, T-mobile issues
I'm really close to buying a new phone and I've been looking at this new torch and I wanted to know if someone here has already been using this phone on Tmobile and what's the experience been like. A while ago I used my sim on an unlocked torch and it never showed 3G, instead it said 2G H or something like that. How can this affect it performance-wise?
I've been reluctant to switch over to ATT because it's been the first time that I've had no biling issues whatsoever with a cell phone company (BTW I dont work with TM ) I love my BB and my options 1 and 2 are 9900 or 9810, but I wanted to consult here first and see other people's feedback.
Thanks a lot for your replies
My 2 brothers are with Att (Iphone and an antique flip thing), man their bills are just so full of surprises.
My only problem with the bold 9900 is the price tag, since both me and my wife are getting new phones, its quite an amount of cash to dish out on a trip to the mall. I'll have to sit and think things thru

I'm using a Torch on T-Mobile now and everything works on it except 3g. Using it on Edge is fine if you mostly go on mobile sites like Facebook and Twitter, but don't try going on youtube with it because its unbearably slow. I'd still recommend it because I don't think spending 150+ more to get the bold off contract is worth it. The torch has a better camera than the bold as well.

tjakule....I'm glad to hear. I just purchased an unlocked torch and plan to use it on TMobile. I'm really worried about it but you make me feel a little better. I'm currently using android and cant stand it! I want to go back to blackberry and have been itching for a torch.
I also just found out that TMo may get a torch in November. Hoping that means the torch I have will then be able to get 3G or wishful thinking?

As far as AT&T is concerned, they have always treated me well. Customer service has been good and if there have been issues, they have always quickly resolved them. The advantage of H+ and the 9810 is that you get to use the phone at its designed speed. I am going today to get mine.Torch 9800, 9810, STL 100-3 Z10, 10.2.1.2141

Well, the day I posted is the day I purchased the AT&T 9810 and cancelled it right away. The more I researched, the more I realized TMobile will get the 9810 and I want a BB fully operational. I'm so excited. I know I won't be able to get all the apps I had on my 9700, but I played with a working model at Best Buy and it's solid. So I'm holding out for the rumor to be true. If it doesn't I'll go back to my BB 9700. I'm done with Android. Never again (unless RIM eventually goes under....which I hope it never does)
Thanks for all the great feedback guys! You helped me make the right decision.
