Hey guys I just got some questions to ask. I did some research but maybe not enough? Well I got to try it out at the T-Mobile dealer yesterday and I loved almost everything about the phone. The things I did not like is:
- Having to scroll to the bottom of the pop up menu to exit (not sure if you have to?)
- The internet seemed really slow to load (Tried going to
- Ability to load the javascript application on myspace (mafia wars)

From what I seen yesterday, is that it was only able to load the loading page, but it would not show any progress, or the actual loading like it does on a desktop. My samsung m8800 on its browser gets up to the page and shows that it is loading, but cannot. In opera mini, it loads it but it is unable to select one link at a time, and it refreshes the page.

But some other things besides is that on my phone, I have the grandfathered $2.99 unlimited t-zones plan and I am aware that I will have to install opera mini via usb. Is this phone compatible with opera mobile?

Right now I'm trying to consider this phone from the G1 (which loaded the mafia wars app perfectly). My contract with T-mobile is over and I would like to consider one of these two devices. Basically I want a qwerty keyboard because typing on a touch screen does get really irritating from time to time, and I would like a full working web browser. The g1 did it pretty good. I know I will more than likely have to upgrade my data plan, but I'll see if there's a way around it.

Lastly, can the 8900 be used as a modem via bluetooth or usb? I read somewhere that it is possible. I am able to use my samsung m8800 as a modem with my current t-zones plan. Also, using the g1 as a modem will also be my ultimate decision. The camera on the 8900 is more than decent, while the g1 has nothing special from my experience, the 8900's screen is also amazing to look at.

Which phone has more potential to do things and tinker with since I am always texting and using the internet on my current phone? The last bit of information is that I am in hawaii and 3g seems to be getting to us in 2010!.
