    Hi

    What SIM card does the 9990 take? I keep reading that its a Micro SIM, but someone my boyfriend knows says his takes a normal sized SIM. Can anyone clarify this for me? I was thinking of getting one, either this or the 9320, which apparently takes a mini SIM whatever that is argggh! lol

    Thank you

    Well "there" is this someone that told me it takes the Big-Normal SIM.

    And this someone also says - go for 9900

    Have been looking on there, some good ones to be had. Am also stalking a website called Purple Gossip. Couple of my family have refurb bbs' from there, all with no problems or anything. They had the 9990 in a couple weeks back, but I've been changing back over onto Virgin, so am all ready to go now, just need them to get some 9990's in!!

    @Legal - How is the hybrid? I tried running the 912 and it just has been a disaster. The LED has a mind of its own!

    RC15 over DoCoMo .923 running mighty fine.

    10 days since my last battery pull. MeterBerry memory loss 0.3mb Medium business use only, rarely less than 70% battery left at the end of a working day. Lightning fast browser. Good signal lock and fast switch between network and WiFi.

    Give it a try, sure you will be impressed, but make sure to do a wipe before install if you do.

    If you want to stick with .912 word is that the best build is the Telstra one, different .sfi to the T Mo one.

    Wow, thanks!! I've never heard of that website before. Exactly what i was looking for though!

    Do they do any kind of warranty or anything like that? I know Purple Gossip do and it is handy in case anything goes wrong with it.

    From the website

    "All New, Reboxed and Refurbished products are supported by a full 12 month Telephones Online warranty"

    Go to the bottom of the Homepage and click on "about us". Thats where I got the quote from. Not used them myself but sounds Kosher. I just did a quick Google search after I read one of your earlier posts and found the link for you.
