Ben,<br><br>A few years ago I posed the same question to a T-Mobile sales guy. He handed me a working demo phone to take around for a few days. I took it back the next day and signed up.<br><br>I wouldn't get the cheapest phone they offer. Remember the first edition of the OpenMoko device is geared for developers. You may still need a true 'production' quality phone until 4Q '07.

So, I'm thinking seriously about getting a neo1973 when they become<br>available. I called the local T Mobile office and asked them whether I<br>could borrow a phone to see how the signal strength is where I live.<br>
They said I could get a 14 day trial with a free phone and just take it<br>back when that is over.<br><br>My question is, has anyone been through this process before, what's the<br>best way to find out how the service is? I don't know anyone that has a
<br>t mobile phone (maybe that should tell me something). And the other<br>thing is, how would I get the neo1973 onto the t mobile network? would<br>I have to get their cheapest phone and then remove the sim card to use
<br>in the neo1973? Is it possible to get the sim card without buying a t<br>mobile phone?<br><br>I'm sure I could find out more by calling T Mobile, but I'm betting<br>there's a lot of expertise in this area on this list.
