    Well guys, today I became a part of the "I-dropped-my-phone-in-the-(insert container of water here)" club, and my 8900 did not survive the ordeal. May she rest in peace. As T-Mobile no longer offers the 8900, I had to get a 9700. Just wanted to say thanks to anyone who's ever helped me out with my 8900 issues. I've really appreciated it.

    Do us a favor and report back in a week or so (or sooner). I'm thinking of moving from the 8900 to the 9700 and would like to read your feedback.

    Will do. So far I'm liking it. Still getting used to the trackpad and keyboard, but will report back in a week and lay out my thoughts.

    Question, did you get the black or the white one?

    I like the white but I'm worried about keeping it clean....

    I thought about it for a while (more like 20 seconds), and went with black. As good as the white looks, I couldn't pull the trigger. I have a white Macbook, so I know how tough it is to keep something white clean. Just one of the reasons I went with black. Also, black goes well with everything, in my opinion.

    Thought I'd drop a first day update.

    Like I said before, the keyboard and trackpad took a little getting used to. It took me a while to figure out what sensitivity level matched my trackball, but I've think I've got it down to something close. Kind of a pain playing BrickBreaker with the pad.

    Battery life is good. Drains faster than my Curve though. Other than that, I've upgraded my OS to the latest official so experience-wise, it's the same as the Curve. Seems to be quicker too. 3G doesn't connect at my apartment, but I don't think that's the phone's fault; I never had much good coverage here. Wi-fi takes care of that, though. Speaking of Wi-fi, it seems to connect much more smoothly than the 8900.

    More updates to come later on, perhaps in a few days.
