    Stopped in the local TMob store today to look at this phone. Asked the rep about UMA - she said she was told by RIM it may not ever come. I'm going to wait to see if it ever gets added.

    One more update, after 3 days I gor JVM error 517 and now I have to return the phone. I guess that's what you get when you only pay $50 for a $300 phone from T-Mobile.

    Not true. T-mobile account manager stated that UMA software app for T-mobile will be available in perhaps a month. You will have to launch the application to turn on UMA since there is no hardware UMA on the phone.

    Same here on the 2nd 9900 from tmobile, lol they tried to charge me a 50$ restocking fee to return a DEFECTIVE phone, so I told them I wanted my full money back and I was not going to try a 3rd device. (truth is I'm going to wait to order over the phone to get cheaper cause i paid 650) lol tmobile peeps have become very douchie.

    What is really starting to get me is that I love every one of my BlackBerries but I don't think I've never had one work out of the box yet.

    The person I spoke with had just returned from RIM training. She also said that the next BB phone coming would not have it.

    I'm just sharing what I was told. I'm not buying the 9900 until UMA is available. If never, then I'm not buying.

    I wonder whether she/they mean you will not get UMA but will get wifi calling. It is the same without handoff as i understand it. But I have heard nothing dispositve re even getting wifi calling.

    it honestly was a combination of speaking to the right person in loyalty, having 2/5 lines not in contract, being persistant, and being with them for 7 years. loyalty's best available price on the phone is 249.99 which is why it was bogo at that price. it took me about 4 calls to them to get the final deal i wanted. they also didnt charge me that crazy upgrade fee and let me keep my old $19.99 unlimited data plan. tmobile has changed though. through loyalty i used to be able to extend contracts for only one year as recently as feb of this year and get better pricing than on a regular 2 year contract. when i got my bold 9780 in 2/2011 i got it for $29.99 and a 1 year contract... wish i could still do that...
    Thanks for the explanation... It makes more sense why they were willing to work with you because you have multiple phone lines... But 4 calls to them? That stinks that you have to invest that amount of time to get a favorable resolution....

    I'm on my 2nd defective 9780, I will not try a 3rd device.... This plant in MEXICO must really BLOW ***... The 9780's were plauged by the defective keyboard problem, and it wasn't until about 6 months after launch, that a T-Mobile Rep on these forums said there was a Service Bulletin from RIM indicating any 9780 phones manufactured before 3/31/11, may be prone to the defect.....

    Was hoping RIM had gotten their act together after that debacle with the 9780, but now I'm not so optimistic.... Maybe it's a good thing that I can't purchase this phone until January.
