Thanks SOOO much for those screenies, you've made me a VERY happy man! I no longer have to cancel my order with Expansys Canada (too bad we can't use your vouchers), as I should be able to use the X1i here in Canada. One minor thing that still irks me is that someone said even though the bands appear in that pull-down list, they might not be supported. I have a hard time believing this though, because your phone shows no 1700mhz band. I'm sure the X1a will likely have it, but it's sooo good to see GSM/UMTS 850+1900 in there!
I know that you guys probably don't have an 850mhz network there, so I'm sure you can't set the phone to that and see if it really does work. Oh, and this makes me wonder if there is a field-test mode in WinMo that would let you see the current GSM/UMTS frequency band that your phone is connected to. If anyone knows details for how to figure that out, it would be great to know.
In other North-Americans-needing-the-X1i-news, I've called Expansys this morning and a lovely lady told me some not-so-lovely news, that being that the X1 is delayed until the end of October. I've heard that people ordering from Clove also got the same news, so this makes sense as the carriers will be getting the first batch.
Thanks again Paul, you're definitely a truly trusted source, and I hope you are enjoying that X1 as much as I've been dreaming about it for the past 8 months!
