    I am a t-mobile customer with a bbflip. I have all web services etc. I bought this phone for the tethering capabilities and edge network. After one week of phone calls to t-mobile on the issue of not picking up the edge network in my area(little rock ar), T-mobile tells me that the tower in my area is down and it is not in the budget to fix it!!! why could they not have told me this prior to purchase? today the rep also told me that 3g will be in all markets by the end of '09, that my flip and all edge t-mobile phones would be able to recieve the 3g network when it arrives! Is this possible or is this yet another lie from t-mobile? I love my flip, would love the 8900. I would take the 8900 and stay with t-mobile if these latest proclamations are true!

    An Edge-only phone will not magically become 3G-capable when a carrier installs a 3G tower.
