Thank you, I'll check that out later when I get some time.
The main reason for giving up my iphone was to reduce expenses. I have to have a phone with PDA functions since I have almost 400 contacts that I need to keep with me. By switching to T-mobile I was able to get what I had to have without spending extra for a data plan that I can get by without.
By switching almost all of my communication services over to T-mobile I am going to save about $55 a month after paying for the switch. $30 of that was being able to drop the mandatory iphone data plan.
Now I'm just trying to get back as much of the iphone functions that I can with my 8900 without increasing my monthly costs. WiFi email is the last big thing that I want to get back.
The more I learn about this 8900 the more I like it. As a matter of fact, getting the repeater would allow me to go back to an iphone (unlocked) and I'm strongly leaning towards sticking with the 8900. Never thought I'd say that!
