8525 compatable with new T-Mobile 3G network?

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the 8525 is compatable with T-Mobile's new 3G network? I have T-Mobile and am currently using an 8125 but when the 3G network comes to my area I want to utilize it and have been looking into an 8525 for a while now. I know its compatable with AT&T's 3G network but am not sure about T-Mobile's. Anyone live in an area the has T-Mobile 3G and using the 8525?

Alarm sounding while on vibrate?

Having a good time trying this phone out. Oh yeah, much bigger than my Blackjack, but more functions too. One thing bothering me is that I like to sleep with the ringer off, but have the alarm wake me up. The 8525 doesn't seem to ba able to do this. Is this correct? Has anyone found a work-around? This is a pretty important feature for me!

at&t rep trying to convince me phone has water damage...

ever since i told her the sticker was white though slightly pink if you look closely. now she said that i could do an exchange but if the sticker wasn't white enough i'd get charged some absurd ammount. how reliable are these stickers anyway, and if it's pinkish tint i maybe should not have mentioned is an actual indication of exposure to water and not just that there is some pink pigment in there somewhere, cuz really, now that i inspect it, the pinkishness has a poke-a-dot pattern as if if it was made that way rather than it got wet and washed itself over with it's pink pigment.

anyone have experience/knowledge on this issue? to me this doesn't look like water damage.

here's the dilemma: a customer's phone is within warranty a...

What's the truth about the "White Screen Problem"?

I'm looking to get one of these phones off ebay to replace my Blackjack. I've heard mention of a common problem where the screen goes white. How common is this? Is it a software or hardware problem (broken flex-cable?)

Any insights will be greatly appreciated!!

Cingular 8525 vs. HP iPAQ hw6925

I've been dying to get the 8525 for a while now, but it looks like the release date keeps getting pushed back. Now Cingular is releasing the iPAQ hw6925 which has very similar specs (plus built-in GPS!). Should I spring for the iPAQ or wait for the 8525? My contract is up in the first week of Nov.

8525 & 4GB MicroSD

I'm getting the 8525 and I was going to buy a MicroSD card at Newegg. I thought that 2GBs in the MicroSD was it, but I saw a 4GB and a 6GB at Newegg. Will the 8525 take a 4GB card? There is not much of a price difference.

I'm about to get my 8525. This is my first time owning a ppc. Are there any programs or applications you guys can recommend. I've heard of downloading and easier browser to use etc. I usually use Mozilla Firefox on my Laptop, is there a version for the pocket pc or one you recommend. Also do I need to use a virus protector or a spyware reomover on my pocket pc... All advice will greatly be appreciated since I'm new to using a ppc. Smile
