Default MyFavs on an unlocked phone?

Please Login to Remove!

so I'm interested in getting a BB8800. since its only out on cingular now, can i install the tmobile software on it later that will let it have MyFavs. that is if the bew 8800 will support it for tmobile, which im sure it will. or do i even need to upgrade it at all?

I have no idea but when I was looking at the blackberry.alx file for the 8800 it did look like there was an entry for TMO's MyFavs or something along those lines...

You will not have the myfavs interface on the 8800. However if you have your 5 free numbers set up through t-mobile you will still have free calls to and from them. To manage those numbers you will have to use my.t-mobile.com.

I have used a lot of different unlocked phones on my myfavs account with no problems. Pearl, 8700g, nokia 8800 sirocco, nokia 8890, moto v60g etc You wont get the interface unless its an officially supported myfavs phone but it will work.
