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!

Coverage in Arkansas & N. Calif?

Looking at the coverage map, I now see the area from Little Rock south to Texarkana has coverage albeit noted as roaming coverage. I am particularly interested in coverage in the Hot Springs and Hot Springs Village, Arkansas area. Also, I travel to the Bay Area of Northern California a great deal... specifically the San Jose and Fremont areas. I would like to know what people's experience is with T-Mobile coverage in these areas has been.

I am currently with SprintPCS and have been very satisfied with the coverage I have found as I have traveled around the country. HOWEVER, I have grown increasing frustrated with Sprint's attitude toward data usage where a phone handset is involved and their "luddite" stance toward Bluetooth. The custom...

Is Number portability within T-Mobile Allowed?

Can I do the following

  1. purchase a new T-Mobile line.
  2. Move my current number to my new line
  3. Cancel my current line

Or am I trying to be too smart for my own good?

This way one can buy a new phone at new customer rates AND keep their number!
