    so,


    if I get an ATT 8900 and run it on TMOBILE does it matter?

    as long as the phone is unlocked, isnt it the same phone?


    thanks

    I have the ATT 8900. I asked about color options and the sales rep stated that the titanium semi-"bold" look was the only 8900 available. FWIW.

    I think the major difference is the OEM branding and stuff that comes on the phone. This should be taken care of if you end up reloading the OS with the vendor.xml removed...

    MAJOR DIFFERENCE is from what I hear the AT&T branded device does not allow UMA calling for AT&T network, I can not guarantee though that the AT&T unlocked device will allow UMA over T-Mobile though. Maybe someone else can clarify that.

    Yes, you need a T-mobile branded 8900 to use UMA. The AT&T branded 8900 will not have the UMA settings available on the device so UMA will not work.

    ok thanks


    so I verify that it is tmobile by the model number under the battery?


    will it be 8920, kinda like the 8320 curve?

    No, the model numbers are the same. The T-mobile branded 8900 will have a gray battery door instead of a black one (but that is easily changeable), will have the T-mobile logo on the back as well as the T-mobile logo spalsh screen when the device starts up.

    There was a dude who posted on one of these forums that he could get UMA to work on a non-UMA device but he took down his link and info a long time ago. You do want the UMA feature trust me.
