Dash for Cingular?

This phone seems to be a dream! in terms of size, features and looks. Time to dethrone the Treo Twisted Evil Does anyone know when it will be available, also for Cingular??
Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil nothing can topple the treo, NOTHING!!!!!!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
Will it EVER be available for Cingular? It seems to me that there's a new trend of developing smartphones exclusively for certain carriers. First there was the Motorola Q, (strictly for Verizon) then the Nokia E62 (exclusive for Cingular). Maybe th...
yea everyone is rite ... first if a phone gets really popular then it could come out for cingular .... and u can buy an unlocked dash and get it with cingular but what i tent to see it that if a phone comes out for a specf. company it usually is noth...
Go to, and you can buy an unlocked version of the "Dash" (actually the generic name is HTC Excalibur) for $500. Yeah, that's expensive, but if you spend $20-40 dollars a month to have a data plan, how long to pay off the extra phone costs?!? ...

Does TMO "require" data plan with Dash

A friend of mine has the TMO MDA. When he bought the phone the TMO rep told him that the phone required the data plan in order to use WIFI even if you just wanted to use home/work wireless networks.

I understand how you'd need a data plan to access TMO hotspots or to use an EDGE data connection but if you just wanted to use the WIFI capabilities of home or corporate network you shouldn't have to buy the data plan. To prove the point, we swapped out his SIM for mine (my phone is an ancient Samsung e105, translation: no data features). His phone was able to pick up our company's wireless network without a hitch.

The problem: his TMO rep wouldn't sell him the phone unless he also bought the data plan.

Has anyone had any similiar ...
Smile I dont know the answer to your question, but what is cool is it will support your tmail address if you are coming from a sidekick!!! That is really cool! And unlike the sidekicks you have to pay $30 a month for all of the dash's services. I twill b...
Absolutely not, you do not need a data plan in order to get any phone with Wi-Fi capabilities. I really dislike T-Mobile representatives because somehow they are all mean, rude, and all they want is a sale to fit their quota. T-Mobile needs to address...

Word Documents

I got the Dash last week and I am , overall happy with it, however I am a little disappointed that it doesn't have a word processor built in Crying or Very sad . Does anyone have any information about what kind of software is out there that i can use to edit and create documents that can transfer to Word? I already have Notepad Mobile, but it hardly measures up to Pocket Word.

Does the device charge via a mini usb cable, just like most of the other HTC phones?

yes it does have a mini usb charger, i love using it. it is a great phone does a lot. too bad its not touch screen oh well i still love using it.
Yet, it does charge off a mini USB like the other HTC device.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's actually HTC's new, proprietary ExtUSB connector, not standard mini-USB.
