Yep -- it worked out of the box (although I notice it's not working tonight
-- network prob I suspect). I was about to buy the 8310 as they initially
thought it was the only GPRS phone in stock, but it turned out that there
was one T280 left. It was 100 euro cheaper, has bigger screen, is tri-band,
includes handfree kit and data cable .... and it's not Nokia (which IMHO is
becoming the Microsoft of the mobile phone world).
Also the Motorola UI has come on along way since the last Timeport I used.
It's as intuitive as any Nokia.
