So does this mean Verizon is getting UMA. Not that I know much about these things but given they turned down the iPhone it seems likely they have an aversion to wi-fi.

I believe the latest Bell data plans match Telus and may even be a few bucks cheaper.

What I couldn't see was the price for text messaging. Given that Telus allows unlimited texts for the 45 plan,...

Have you tried changing the touch pad sensitivity settings?

They're somewhere in the options - though I've only actually seen the settings screen in the simulator.

Has anyone done the research on Telus data plans? They appear to beat Bell and Rogers hands down so I'm guessing there must be a catch.

BlackBerry 8820 dies on startup

Just acquired an 8820 which has worked fine for a few weeks but after charging the battery overnight, the device starts runs for a few seconds then dies and restarts.

Anyone seen this before?

UMA will allow wi-fi VOIP calling etc and has the added advantage (for the Carrier) that they can make you pay. Apparently UMA is some form of tunneling over the wi-fi connection.
