    http://wwwapps.ups.com/WebTracking/track]UPS: Tracking Information

    click on TRACK BY REFERENCE on left hand side under TRACK SHIPMENTS, use your tel.# xxx-xxx-xxxx

    after 3 tries, since Monday...I was finally able to place my order today 1/22. And I must say I'm quite surprised at the speed in which T-Mo is handling my order.

    Called in at noon (PST) and by 11 pm UPS.com already shows my order's billing information with 3 day select. I requested UPS GROUND and was told it would take 3-7 business days.

    I do not have a business account, nor corporate; just a regular joe. But have been with T-Mo for 5 years now.

    Thanks guys for the tip! And to the people that are still trying, don't give up. There's light at the end of the tunnel!

    Took 3 calls but was able to get the order at 9am on Thursday. I checked that evening and already received my shipping confirmation and tracking. I paid for the expedited shipping, thought that meant 2nd day but tracking says it will be here today. They ended up shipping it overnight!

    Not to bad, it will end up being a little over 24 hours from time of order until delivery.

    No, unfortunately it does not. You will have to get a new charging cradle. I have a post here where I found a good deal on a cradle for the 8900.

    You guys had an additional SD card in your box from T-mobile USA? My 8900 from Rogers didn't, but I already had an 8 GB waiting for it so I didn't worry about it.

    On a side note, I went into Best Buy today to get some new headphones and decided to show my phone 8900 off to the cell phones sales reps. They didn't know what the Hades (can't say the other word) I was showing them, it was hilarious. "Its kinda like a cross between a Bold and a Storm" Silly Sales Reps.
    I wouldve loved to see that on youtube...

    Alright advice for those looking to get the curve 8900...talk to a customer service rep. Go straight in and tell them you are due for an upgrade. They ask what phone, you tell them the curve 8900. If the rep denies you, try again with someone else. Be persistent mannnn!!! Cheers

    i'm very new to this. super excited tho cause i didn't get expedited shipping and was originally told it'd be 7-10 days but i think it's coming tomorrow (according to ups!)... anyhow, was wondering about the memory card, i'm checking them on amazon. is micro sd the same as micro sdhc? any recommendations on size?
    Micro SD is the same physical size as Micro SDHC - the HC stands for high-capacity and is only used to describe the large capacity cards. Otherwise, they are the same thing. Get the highest capacity you can afford - pictures, music (MP3s), ringtones, and video are stored on the card, so the bigger the card, the more you can store.

    SWEET!!!

    Looks like the 8900s are now shipping normally (same or next day) and the two-three day delay the first wave experienced was due to the phones not being ready to ship. It now appears that they are readily available to ship and will be shipped ASAP. Great news for those ordering now.

    I don't think they'll bend or break the release date to get you as a customer.. I think you should just keep trying until you get through to someone who will sell it to you.

    So just keep asking the first person I talk to if the 8900 is available?

    I did not ask if the 8900 was available... I just asked to get the 8900 Curve.
