    My 8900 drove off in a Czech cab, and I don't have hopes of it finding its way home (Hopefully can get it wiped thanks to SmrtGuard). I'm heading to Nuremberg in a couple days, and looking to purchase an unlocked pre-paid Torch from T-Mo there if I can.

    What issues am I likely to encounter coming back? I know those who unlock AT&T phones and use a US TMo sim lose their 3G service, but would that be the case with a German Torch? What other issues should I consider here?

    don't think that you will have 3G here in the US if you use t mob, other than that on the physical keyboard you might get the Z on the place of the Y i used to have a german 8900 when they first came out, and that was the only issue it worked normally.

    Interestingly, it was Tmo who suggested I purchase something here. I asked about a phone not currently supported by them, and they said shouldn't have any problem. Sounds like I need to query further about that.

    Thanks for the reminder about the keyboard. TMo.de lists it as a "qwerty" keyboard, so might not have looked closely.
