    The 8900 has the same microprocessor as the bold. The rep mentioned that too. And the rep also said on the next official os update there might be 3g. The only 3g phones tmobile has now are the g1 and the memoir

    if the hardware is not there no matter what software they do, it wouldn't magically appear.. this has been a subject of alot of threads, do some reading and you will understand where I'm coming from...

    Trust me I love 8900 to have 3G as I'm using one on ATT....

    How about you do some actual research instead of just believing anything a rep tells you and then coming pawn it off as truth here at Crackberry. Or continue listening to the reps and being naive, your choice.

    The rep said it will make coffee, do my job, and print legal currency. Just requires a sw update.

    The rep said it will turn into a flesh light with a software update. I'm more excited about that than I am about the non-existent 3G.

    Rep's, although helpful with account issues, are not at all knowledgeable about the devices themselves. I actually had a T-mo rep tell me "Whats the big deal about Blackberrys?" He was also helping out a customer highly interested in the G1 and he asked me if I would consider the G1 to which I replied loudly, "The G1 is OLD technology, theres a G2 coming out soon." Woops, who just lost a sale. No actually the customer interested in the G1 bought a Pearl flip. I'm starting to feel like a Jehovah's witness getting people into the Crackberry religion.

    Next thing they'll tell you is the 8900 will work with Verizon or Sprint . But seriously you are always better off doing your own research before trusting most of them.

    I have them too. I never knew they were not preloaded until today though since I only got the 8900 on Saturday.

    Right, because when you downloaded the service books the info was pushed to your phone.

    Exactly. Our contract expires soon, and this is the one I am holding my upgrade for. My wife wants an iPhone, but if they don't bring this out, I will go to Verizon and get a Niagra for myself and a Storm for her.


    I would agree going for the Niagra, but the Storm is garbage. Also expect your bill to be 20-30$ higher with Verizon, at least from T-Mobile pricing, not sure about AT&T

    Well I hope this means something internally at at&t. Cause I don't know how much longer I can hold off this itch, to get an unlocked 8900.
    I can't wait anymore, I think I'm just gonna go buy an unlocked one this weekend.

    While I disagree about the Storm, this is not the place to debate it.

    Yes the bill will be higher than TMo, but will be identical (or pretty darn close) to what it would be on AT&T with the same features.

    I bought an unlocked TMo branded Curve in eBay last week. Had it up and running on my Bold SIM card within minutes. No problems at all. Sweet phone!

    I just bought a unlocked T-Mo branded 8900 and came UPS today. If you want one, just get one now and not wait for At&t. I have the best of both worlds now... the Bold and Javelin

    I really want to try the Javelin but I just love 3g too much. Hopefully this means its coming to ATT soon and I can get one cheap on contract since mine is up.

    That's what I'm thinking Garz. I've been holding off on this ever since At&t announced they were going to release this. I just basically ran out of patience

    That's what I am thinking, but I may just hold out. Or wait for the next generation Pearl.
