This question still remains unanswered (at least not satisfactorily), and I would also like to know, as well. Has anyone been able to get My Faves working on a T-Mobile 8700g or 8705g?!?
I'm an unwilling Sprint customer, my service has been turned to crap by Sprint's takeover of Nextel, and I'm ready to leave. I was mere days away from getting a Verizon 8703e, when I heard about T-Mo's My Faves. Now that they've let that cat out of the bag, I'm seriously considering T-Mobile... something I never thought I'd do again after getting rid of my Sidekick. Even though T-Mo doesn't have HSDPA/UMTS 3G data yet, with that service still being roughly a year away, they do have EDGE, which is still significantly faster than Nextel's data network. And the My Faves feature would give me a reasonable substitute for the Free Incoming Calls that I'll lose by leaving Nextel. So, it's imperative that I be able to use that feature on an 8700g or 8705g if I make the switch to T-Mobile.
Any info on this subject will be appreciated.
P.S. I like my QWERTY keyboard and I loathe the SureType keyboard, so the Pearl/8100 is NOT an option for me. Never has been, never will be.
P.P.S. After talking to a friend that works at a T-Mobile corporate store, I know that the 8705g is still officially unavailable, even though his store has a display sample of the 8705g that they received in September. Apparently the launch of the 8705g was delayed at the last minute and no new date is available yet. Could this have been delayed to give RIM and T-Mo time to add My Faves into the OS?
