You know, I'm not loving the track ball thing either. Its too damn small and finiky. Makes my thumb hurt to contort to use it. The keyboard is also more cramped than an 8700C.
The 8800 looks so good. They -almost- got it right. Fix the radio, give me my scroll wheel back and more room on the keys and its a winner.
Same problem in Cingy. I will have EDGE but no service. If I turn off wireless and turn it back on -- it comes on to edge.
Support had me do a battery pull which fixed the issue.
I believe the issue lies with Cingular as I've had an unlocked 8700 which I used on both tmob and cing and never had the situation with tmo.
