    This is ok with me however, because they are still charging me 19.99 and now I have 200 text messages as well as unlimited internet. I called cs before buying the phone to make sure that I could keep media net
    Sweet i cant wait!!! Unfortunately 3g is not really covered in Long Island (Nassau). Although i do live in Queens, I am rarely there cuz i work in Wantagh LI and my GF lives in Belmore and I got to School in Farmingdale so i am mainly in LI lol.

    ya, I had the 3g sim in my s710a and it worked (did not get 3g though).

    The 8525 is great, took me a few days to get used to it, but it is by far the best phone I have had. Get opera mobile http://www.opera.com/products/mobile.../winmobileppc/

    well worth the price

    the only thing that I don't like is that phoneCo does not work for me with wm5

    I still use the phone to connect to the internet for my lt and carpc though.

    great to program for too...

    If you end going with a regular phone form-factor you can also download a J2ME version of the opera browser. At least on my phone it can render some pages better than the builtin browser and I can full pages full screen on the phone's screen (more of an issue on small phone screens).

    opera mobile finds javasceipt menus and opens them up so the drop down menu at the top of this forum are accessible. it also dose away with the horizontal scroll bar
