| | A Favor From Curve Users on T-Mobile

I'd like to ask a favour from those of you still using the 8300 on T-Mobile... Could you keep an eye out for your service books, and post if and when they change and complete the "missing" ones that would enable full functionality? Specifically, the BlackBerry Internet Browsing Service.
I ask this for a very simple reason... during a troubleshooting call with one of my enterprise representatives at RIM, we got to talking about the Curve. He mentioned that T-Mobile was in the middle stages of certifying the device, and that they may update their provisioning tool soon with the necessary books for field testing. He went on to add that he's been working with a few T-Mobile engineers, and that a few open cases exist. He did not say (and cannot say) which device they're testing, and whether that comprises the 8300 or the 8320. (Essentially, WiFi or no WiFi.) The launch of the Curve in T-Mobile Germany has gone well, and the initial results from there indicate that the US version shouldn't have any initial teething issues. While not at liberty to fully say, the apparent open issues surround some of the enhanced features of the 4.2.2 OS, and namely folders. The T-Mobile load might feature similar application grouping as that which we've seen on AT&T's devices.
In any event, I'm not trying to spread rumors or fan any additional flames... just mentioning what I heard. I trust him, obviously, but know his ability to share knowledge is somewhat constrained.
Please keep an eye out for your service books.
