Default T-Mobile 8320 to At&t 8310

Please Login to Remove!

Pondering the idea. I am a T-Mobile user with a 8320 and I have the Data Plan package.

Prior to purchasing my 8320, I was unaware that the Wifi was a complement to the Data Plan and that your couldnt use Push Email with just Wifi (no data plan), but I ended up getting the data plan anyways. UMA is nice, but I am noticing that I would use GPS more than UMA. I would buy the 8820, but I love the form factor of the 83xx's and its keyboard much better than the 88xx's.

My question is, if I got a 8310 and unlocked it, would I be able to use it and the full GPS features on the T-Mobile Network?

Yes. If it's unlocked, you're good to go. If you need it unlocked then Horizon Wireless can unlock it cheap and quick. Link is in my sig.

Plus its a bonus - if I get the color that I wanted in the first place - CRIMSON. = )

But if he got an 8310 he could save the extra $$$ for a Bold!

It's yet another device to deal with. If I was okay with carrying a utility belt of devices I wouldn't have purchased a BB in the first place years ago.
