SGH-P730 vs SGH-D410

both of phones haven't released in US yet, and

can't really decide which one I should wait

for. I know both sgh-d410 and sgh-p730 are

awesome phones and it would be worth wating

for phones like those. but I have no idea

when is coming out. do you?

Nokia 3660

Does anyone have any info on this phone's release? There's a training doucment on the SOT website with every piece of info on this phone, including pricing and rebate. It lists the launch date as 5/12 for indirect and TBD for direct, which seems odd and backward, not to mention the fact that I haven't heard a whisper about it elsewhere? Anybody else know?

3 week temp phone

Help, I live overseas but am returning to NYC for a couple weeks to take care of the apartment I rent out (which will be empty and have no phone service). I also really need the wireless internet service they offer at Kinko's and Starbucks. If I just walk into a tmobile store will they be able to take care of me, or will my foreign address, etc. throw them off?

Ideally, I'd like to get their prepaid plan with 60 minutes for $69.99, but there doesn't appear to be an option for internet service with that plan. Of course their basic nationwide plans are cheaper (and internet $19.99/mo. vs. $29.99/mo.) but it requires a year contract.

Tmobile also offers a GSM Worldclass phone rental for $79/mo. Is that something I can pick up at a Man...

T-Mobile GPRS and Motorola V300

I have a Motorola V300 that I'm using with T-mobile. I just switched from Sprint, so far so good.

But I noticed that the GPRS icon at the top of the display never comes on when I'm accessing T-zones. Also, compared to using mobile web (WAP) browser on my old, old, Sprint phone the v300 is just as slow (as best I can tell).

T-mobile customer service told me that if I'm using T-zones then GPRS must be being used and I shouldn't worry that the icon isn't displayed. They said if GPRS wasn't working I wouldn't be able to accessing the web, email etc.

But... I'm wondering why the phone isn't telling me its using GPRS. Does my browser have the wrong connection info, is this a phone bug, programming problem or what?

I did notice th...

Deutsche Telekom SIM?

Does anyone out there know if a T-Mobile USA tri-band phone will accept a Deutsche Telekom pre-paid SIM while in germany (whether or not the phone is SIM-locked). I mean, It's the same company technically, but will Vaterland company's SIM card work or will it be locked to only a T-Mobile USA SIM card?
Gotta be some T-Mobile CSRs out there that know the answer to this one. Or do I have to drive up to DT's headquarters in Bonn to find out! Don't tell me to call 611 and get the phone unlocked; there's a lot of history behind this question ( YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW!)

What've you got to show?

For those of you that paid the extra cash for a camera phone... I have a nice little secret to share with you.. a free one.

So, my friend, who is a technical genius compared to me, sent me the link to ; a web photo log where you can simply e-mail pics from your phone and it will upload them. I thought maybe it was another scam where you can upload like five pictures and then after that they slam you with a $30.00 a month bill if you want say six photographs rather than five... but it turned out, and this is rare indeed, I was wrong.

Pretty damn nice how that works out.

I can't believe the nerve of your company. Even the website lies. Of course it corrects the lie in fine print, so they can't get sued, but the sales staff seems to be anything for an add. If you select regional plan it shows all of the state as covered as well as NJ & CT. What a freaking Crock of ^@#*. In large print it says NO ROAMING. The fine print says "as long as your calling from the T-mobile coverage area." ... Every plan is No Roaming from your coverage area, that is what a coverage area is. I don't know how you can live with yourselves. Unless of course you are sociopaths. Twisted Evil

Handspring VisorPhone & T-Mo

I know I'm dooming myself as an antique aficionado, however, does anyone out there know whether the Handspring (Visor, Jeff Hawkins, now part of PalmOne, etc) VisorPhone, which was shipped from the manufacturer, with a T-Mo SIM separate in the shipping box - is SIM locked?

I have spent untold hours with Handspring support, T-Mo support, 3 T-Mo Co. stores and the T-Mo "Unlock Specialist" Chris via email to no avail.
All I want to be able to do is stick a Deutsche Telekom (You Know...those guys over in Bonn that OWN T-Mo USA!) prepaid SIM in this sucker and use it in Germany next month!

T-Mo reps can't even tell me whether a DT SIM will work in the phone whether or not its SIM ( or subsidy) locked. Much less being able to check for me w...
