View Full Version : 8707v on UK T-Mobile

09-14-2006, 10:09 AM
I知 based in the UK and I知 currently on the T Mobile network running a 7230 Blackberry handset.

I am considering purchasing a Blackberry 8707v device, which is specific to the UK Vodafone network and supports 3G/UMTS. T-Mobile UK do not offer this handset, instead they offer the 8707, which supports EDGE but not 3G/UMTS.

The device is unlocked and I知 confident that my SIM will work correctly, but I知 unsure whether I will get 3G/UMTS functionality. T-Mobile UK have a 3G network and I can have them enable it for 3G use, but I知 still not certain it will work.

If I was to opt for the standard 8707, what kind of performance difference is there between 3G UMTS and EDGE?

Does anyone have any practical experience of what I am trying to achieve?

Many thanks
