So I posted this in the 8100 forum, but I think I might get better responses here...
I am a (mosty) happy owner of a 8100 Pearl carried by T-Mob. Mostly its great, but in the building at work, I get no reception. I am the ONLY person here with T-Mob, and the ONLY person who's cell phone doesn't work.
I would like to stay with T-Mobile, but I'm done putting up with no reception (especially if work is going to take away my internet privs soon). If I switch to a newer phone, like the Flip, could the "inside the building" issues be resolved? I'm in what T-Mob considers a "5 bar" area, but I don't really wanna wait until the end of August for Milwaukee to get 3G either.
Also, I just noticed on the T-Mob website that it says the Flip is not 3G capable, but the guy at T-Mob that I talked to made it sound like once 3G was here all of my problems would be solved with the Flip. Whats the deal here?
