Default Source for 9100 for Tmobile

Please Login to Remove!

Where can I find a 9100 Pearl 3g with the Tmobile 3g network for purchasing outright?

Understand Cincinnati Bell sells one with the proper 3g network, but their website doesn't allow buying a phone with no contract without activating an account also.

Wind in Canada offers the phone as well, but no sure they will ship to US.

Any tips are welcome, thanks.

T-mobile has a different 3G frequency, and no other pearl 3G will work on 3G unless t-mobile release it.
Last I heard, they weren't.

Have purchased one from eBay; although would have preferred getting one directly from a reseller.

Will provide a test report once received to those on Tmo who might be longing for a Pearl since the original 8100/8120 era.

Given poor Tmo reception in my house, even 3g, decided to move to ATT as wife's ATT iPhone reception is much better.

So long Tmo in a couple of weeks as contract is up then.

I switched to AT&T because they are the only ones offering the 9100. I've been waiting for a pearl 2 for a long time now. I used a storm for a while but couldn't stand the huge size or the touchscreen. Man I love this little sure type keyboard, I can really fly on it. Wish more providers offered the 9100 but I guess the consumers are demanding large touch screen devices.

I've been a fan of suretype since the 8100 original pearl days. Good to see there's a 3g 9100 Pearl, but have a feeling this might be the last of the line as people mostly prefer touch keyboards now which is not something I can get used to.
