T-Mobile BlackBerry addicts around the US are anxiously awaiting the BlackBerry Curve 8900 - after all, it has a refreshed design and a new OS, among other things (and if you're a geek, the pure enjoyment of receiving a shiny new toy is enough).  Frustration set in last week when we reported that the device would be available on January 19th for business customers, while normal consumers would have to wait until February 11th to purchase the device.

It appears as if regular customers are having a bit of a lucky streak ordering the device, however - members over at Howard Forums are reporting success with T-Mobile customer care, with one member saying that they "played dumb asking about a new Curve that just came out" and was able to order the phone - after going through two customer care representatives.

If you're a T-Mobile customer and had the Curve 8900 in your sights, try to order it and let us know your results!
