I just ordered my 8900 :)
 
After much deliberation (especially because I was so in love with the Bold... now I'm over that) I just ordered my 8900 from T-Mobile.

I went to see both phones and the Bold just seems huge compared to the 8900. And I really do like T-Mobile so I wasn't keen on switching carriers.

Just had to share... I'm sure I will be on this forum a bit now. :)

Congrats! I believe you will enjoy the 8900 immensely...

laur419 03-21-2009 06:09 PM

Thanks!

I feel very silly for posting my excitement. I know I'll have silly questions in no time, as I always do. :)

Silly about being excited? Here at BBF? You must not know us very well yet! A new device is up there with the other milestones in life! Lol!

I've actually been floating around here for 2 years, but still-- my bf says I'm a dork about my gadgets. He was laughing at my giggliness when I completed my order. But I seriously can't help it. :)

I just bought the 8900 today after having the bold (too big) and the storm (need the keyboard). I'm a little disappointed that can't get my personal email up and running... T-mobile says I have to wait the full 48 hours for "provisioning" to take affect.

I've never experienced that before.....

dennis8320 03-22-2009 12:14 AM

wife(employee) says depending on if theres a delay or not it can take 2-48 hours so check it once in a while

laur419 03-22-2009 12:27 AM

software upgrade? oooh, do explain. Is the OS that comes with it not the latest one?

Helmdawg 03-22-2009 12:41 AM

Congrats! You will love the 8900, its a great BB...

You can leave the OS that your phone comes with, no worries, it will work just fine. And yes, it will be the latest OS for t-mobile but higher OS's are out there from other carriers and in beta...

Luckily (I think) - I'm not patient...and having BB's before - this didn't seem the norm.

I called T-mobile again. Apparently they have a BES plan that locks out personal email. That is what they put on my account. They changed it - told me I needed to wait 2 to 4 hours "again"....

I was up and syncing in less than 15 minutes....

My gf just got an 8900 Friday, she's in love with it already!

You will dig the 8900. It is a great phone and I have no complaints. The camera rocks!

Also, the OS that comes preinstalled seems just fine to me. It runs fast and smooth. I have not bothered to upgrade my OS as I see no reason to.

sOysaUC3 03-23-2009 07:11 PM

Congratulations! The 8900 is a great device and you will definitely enjoy it.

Loving the Cuve, and when it comes to these kinds of toys, my gf thinks I'm the biggest geek too.

The Javelin is a fantastic buy. You will enjoy it very much for sure.
