Re: Source for 9100 for Tmobile

Re: Source for 9100 for Tmobile

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.

The new Pearl is called the Nokia E55

Definitely worth a try as I didn't like the 8900. Suretype keys have larger surface than full qwerty. Storm would have been an alternative but no GSM version with wifi yet, plus it's larger in size.
