T-Mobile will give you the SIM unlock code for you phone if you ask for it. All you have to do is send an email to simunlock@t-mobile.com. In the email you need to provide you name, phone number model # and IMEI# (which can be found on the box, or each phone has different shortcuts to this info). They will send you back the unlock code which will allow you to place a competitors code into the phone. I Don’t know for sure if AT&T and Cingular offer this, but I cannot imagine they would not.

(Sprint PCS confirmed the handset was going to be made available, and now, according to MobileTracker, it wont be.

SprintPCS has the phone on their website for $229, though some of the information is not correct. You can also watch the hand-wringing in real-time on T608 Users if you are interested. -Emory)
A recent MobileTracker story says that the T608 is not coming (despite a recent rumor here at the PowerPage). Their source is a Reuters story that mentions cost cutting moves.

One of the biggest surprises is that the P800 is actually smaller than the Sidekick. Don?t believe it? He?s got pictures.
