    I've been keeping my tmobile account active waiting for THIS device! I'm using vzw at the moment but only for 3G purposes.
    I herd that its taking a long time because they can't get UMA and 3G to work in the same device. I hope that becomes a non issue because it really would be a shame if it didn't have UMA. Once I get this I can leave vzw and never look back. That customer unlimited loyalty plan io have with tmobile doesn't hurt either

    Not a fan of the chrome but I'll be picking one up once it's available. Hopefully they have a black bezel or the charcoal one available around launch time.

    Now I'm torn between at&t and tmobile. I guess depending on my duty station which has the better service wins.

    ok ok I did run out and buy the 8520, but only because it was 49 bux at walmart, and i had an upgrade burnin a hole in my pocket!! fortunately i have 5 lines and my upgrades are beginning to cycle thru, ive got 3 more coming in the next few months so Ill be ready when it comes out. Besides, this 8520 is not a good device, and its the cheapest BB ive ever seen. Im about to take it back and get a refund, save my upgrade for a bit longer!!!

    Lots of us care about UMA because of poor signal quality at home. I am desparate for BOTH 3G and UMA - 3G when I'm out and about, and UMA for when I'm home.

    RIM - PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure that UMA works! Apparently Motorola has solved the 3G/UMA problem given their "Morrison" phone has made it through FCC approval. So RIM...please go for it!

    Why would you get the 8520 if you had the 8900??? Lol

    You know you don't HAVE to buy each new phone....LOL

    Don't worry I contemplated getting the 8520 but didn't do it for a change.

    The battery would die before the end of the day (5 oclock) and after two exchanges I just sold it, and went back to 8320.

    I would be, but still no 3G on T-Mo in my area.
    Don't be sad.....3G coverage in my area is superb!

    I's drop my 8900 in a heartbeat for this....tim to take back the My Touch and save my upgrade for this bad boy.

    I'm definitely a newbie here and have some questions. What's the difference between 3G and UMA? I have a BB Pearl and have no issues with it as far as accessing the internet and all. What would 3G do for me?
    Sorry if I'm coming across as totally stupid, but I'd really like some help.
    Thanks so much in advance!!!

    UMA is a technology that only T-Mobile has at the moment. It allows you to connect to a Wi-Fi connection and make calls, get data, and get SMS/MMS. It's great when you're traveling or are in an area with little/no coverage.

    3G is the hardware in a phone for faster data...MUCH faster than EDGE.

    I'm excited for the new 3G berry but I won't be upgrading for another year or so. I def won't get it if it doesn't have UMA. My college has bad coverage and so it wouldn't make much sense for me to get an AWESOME 3G berry and then only get signal 10% of the time. Kind of defeats the purpose.

    I hope they get 3G and UMA working on the same phone!
