This is only the first time I have changed providers. I have only had 3 mobiles for 7 years or so on Orange. Maybe there's a rule of thumb "don't buy contracts from third parties"?
I bought an ASUS P750 with 'Smartphone Connect from T-Mobile' for 12 months from eXpansys. Here's the link to the bundle description (NOT current: see the next paragraph)
This link can no longer be found from the ASUS P750 page, but I have been able to find a navigation path to it (13 April 2008). From the eXpansys home page:
Home › Windows Pocket PCs › T-Mobile Deals, then 'show all', then 'alphabetically'. It should be right at the top.
I'll supply images if the link goes bad.
In the Official ASUS P750 'ask nedge' thread, I asked if anyone was getting the HSDPA promised in the link, because I'm not. I got lots of help with locations to try, and dudegalea told me he bought his P750 without SIM and put it on his Web 'n' Walk contract -- works fine on HSDPA in Bath. Another poster said he has the 'H' on Web 'n' Walk in North London, near me.
T-Mobile CS say I don't get HSDPA because I don't have Web 'n' Walk. My first bill last night shows 'Email Plan 12 for email and Internet web browsing'. I sent a detailed email with the link and images to eXpansys saying I only get '3G' (4 bars in Canary Wharf) and 'up to 384 Kbps' instead of the promised 'H' and 'up to 1.8 Mbps'. eXpansys are still checking.
Does anyone have eXpansys 'Smartphone Connect from T-Mobile' on any HSDPA device? Do you actually get HSDPA? If so, what plan does your T-Mobile bill say?
