Z I;2508948']I'd go with the N900. When I was looking to get my first smartphone, I looked hard and checked tons of reviews and the Nokia n95 8GB was praised more times than it's competitors. After that phone, I wanted to get another Nokia and found that the N900 was the best from Nokia at the time and is still currently. Before I got it, I saw youtube comparisons with phones like the HTC etc. and many people seemed to agree that the N900 was the best. Research deep to find the right phone for you. I think I'm sticking to Nokia for life.
Does the N900 work with tmobile networks though? I read a couple articles and some said that it only works on 2.5G whereas tmobile and other networks are at 3G.

If you want quality first choice would be Nokia. The N900 is honestly the best phone that you have up there.
Excellent phone, I myself haven't gotten my hands on one but have heard many great things about it. Also their MAEMO OS is very nice, I mean VERY nice. If you got the cash to drop go with the N900. I have an E72 at the moment, well.. I let my girlfriend borrow it. But I have an HD2 on the way. If I had the cash I would drop it on the N900. Also the N900 has 32GB of memory & a 5MP Carl Zeiss Optics lens if you like pictures.
Only thing the HD2 has that trumps the N900 is the screen size.
EDIT: I just bought an N900 arriving in a couple days so when I get it I will inform you on how it is.
I bought it from Nokia.com they are running a promotion right now 10% off, so basically $50 off the phone & they have a fathers day thing going on where after 14 days you receive the phone they send you a surprise phone for free (value from about $30-$400) so its a hit or miss, could be a cheap ass Nokia 1661 all the way to N97 Mini. But a free phone is a free phone! Hopefully I get an N97 Mini!!
& YES I am on T-Mobile & for the N900 you can use 3G on T-Mobile! Which is a big +.
Also, no they do not need to know the phone you are using, it really doesn't matter. You can just get the regular web2go data plan ($10) for it.
& YES it is unlocked.
I'll definitely tell you how it goes when I receive it in a few days.
Oh & I just shipped back 3 HD2's, lol. We upgraded 3 of our lines to HD2's hoping we wouldn't be forced the $30 data plan but it seems that if you do buy it you are stuck with the $30 data plan for 2 YEARS!!! Straight ridiculous.
So yeah, you'll definitely be saving money in the long run with the N900 because of the data plan, well worth the $500.
Thanks for the info. I'll definitely check it out. So $500 shipped including the 10% off? I hope they keep this promotion up for a good while.
Keep me updated once you get the phone, por favor !!
Z I;2512596']If the promo is over or you don't care about a free extra phone, get it on Amazon.com. I got mine from there. It's not some random seller. It's sold by amazon and it's $479.99 and if you haven't signed up for the membership "free 2 day shipping thing", do it. You have to cancel membership right away though or else they will charge you after the trial is over. Unfortunately, I paid $560, because I didnt have the free 2 day shipping anymore and at the time, the price was higher.

If you order from Amazon and something goes wrong with the phone, is there warranty from Amazon and you get a new phone?
