Picked up a used Tmo 9700 - wow
Just picked up a used 9700 in Fort Collins Colorado and spent the day there in T Mobile 3g land and was amazed.
I went to a Starbucks in old town to use my laptop and the free ATT wifi was operating at about 1.5 down and i decided to try my 9700 on the tether and tested at just over 3 MBPS down, and downloaded a decent size file averaging 320 KPBS, about 10 times better than my old Edge 8900.
I experienced perfect 3g service wherever i went in fortcollins with no dropped calls or slowdowns.
I shrunk T mobiles 6.0 .448 OS down and after installing all of the apps i use (Bloomberg, Beweather, BB secure,BBM, Gmaps, flashlight, ebay, pandora, google mail, multi alarm and dictionary.com) i still boot with 96 MB free, only about 15 megs less than my 8900 with 5.0.
The browser is so much better also. I wish i would have jumped sooner, although the 8900 was a fantastic device for me.
Can't wait until the GSM carrier (Union Wireless) here turns the 3g on.
