I have this phone running on Cingular. Everything works as expected. The GPRS/MMS settings can either be entered manually or automatically by using the Nokia WEB site "set up" feature. The phone displays "E" when it is in an EDGE enabled area ("G" when it is in a regular old GPRS area). The performance is impressive.

Other issues: Voice Recognition is a disaster, battery life is less than desireable, why change the size of the power adapter connector - nuts (or a way to extract revenue)? Music Player has very poor implementation of fast forward and/or reverse (no different than other Nokia phones, but I had hoped they would do better), slider style takes some getting used to, the slider does not fit tightly (has some play in it) but that may be necessary. Display is sweet. Bluetooth implementation is solid. Camera, better, but this is a phone, not an image device. Camera will be handy when the aliens arrive and step out of their space ship, but not something you want to rely on when you go on vacation to (wherever).

Like most new phones, it takes a while to adapt to the newness of it as you are constantly comparing it to what you were previously using. You also tend to focus on the features you don't like or wish were implemented differently. All in all, I will use this for a while, at least until the N80 is released. The "maker" for me is that this is a Quad Band Nokia. You can expect flash version upgrades in the near term as Nokia will be working out the kinks. Like the fact that when you try to use the horrible voice recognition feature, it blocks access to the Radio and Music Player giving you a "Not Allowed" error message.
