I ordered thru Htc.com 3 days ago and await the arrival. The unit is priced at $279, free activation,shipping and a $50 coupon off accessories. Good deal? Maybe, I'll figure it out when it gets here as I hear Tmobile is the worst for bloatware. TIA. Just wanted to know if anyone has opinions on the GSM Tmo version... seems very few people have this version of the flyer.

2year contract and $200 termination fee. Htc didn't offer a flyer for tmobile w/o a contract :( . But I do plan on terminating service, I really hate contracts! It arrives today, will keep you posted!

Wow. That's a pretty steep total cost of ownership especially considering the going rates for a wi-fi only Flyer. That's what I have.......tethered to my T-Mobile cellular account when I'm not around Wi-Fi.

Tell me about it..... I really wanted the gsm version of the tablet as its for business & personal use. Sprints 4g really sucks in the fort worth area so that only left me two choices. Tether via mifi/tmobile or get the gsm version. I settled with the gsm for business purposes as I would need access to immediate emails. This bull crap the carriers put you through is crap, but it was either get the UK version for $500 w/o contract with edge speeds or $279 with a two year... Smh @ these games the carriers play.

Darn it, you had my hopes up till you mentioned it was on contract. I actually would love one that works on ATT so I can use my unlimited iPad sim but I don't want a contract and off contract pricing is insane. Wonder how the TMobile ATT roaming deal will work out for data.

For now I opted for the View deal that popped up. At least I can use the gps and pre cached maps until a deal on something better comes around.

As most would agree, the tablet is pure awesomeness! Cant believe how fast/smooth the build is... no need for that dual core. There are very few apps installed from tmobile and the 4g connection is solid. Next step: figure out if I can get this thing unlocked.
