It works fine as a normal phone, and you have to sign up as part of the MS developers forum to oder (although i don't think there are any prerequisites).

Just bear in mind it's a pre-production reference design, and expect thebugs that come with that...

mo7881,
I purchased the Dev Kit from Microsoft last month. Monolithix is correct, I slipped the SIM card from my t-Mobile phone into it and adjusted the network to the US band..(defaults to Europe). Worked great. However, I still find myself using my T-Mobile PPCPE everyday so if you are still looking for a dev kit phone and extras I am parting with mine at a better price than retail ;) . Let me know if you are interested...if not, then to ebay I go....

codesmith-

how much does M$ charge for a dev kit? And how much would you sell yours for? (yours is the Compal, right?)

thanks!
