When is a mobile phone not a phone?

When is a mobile phone not a phone? When it is a smart phone apparently.

I got a T-Mobile MyTouch. My SIM needs to be provisioned for data services before I can use the internet stuff on it. Ok fine. I found out today that it might take 48 hours...Hmmmm, not great but ok, fine.

But here is the kicker, unless I am missing something I cannot make a phone call in the interim! My "phone" insists on being a computer first and a phone second it seems.

Once you are actually able to use it I'll be curious to hear your opinion, I'm considering picking up a MyTouch but lack of physical keyboard makes me nervous.

Not sure why it would take so long. I was in the store Wed afternoon, and was surfing and calling before I left the store! Everything has worked as expected. As it is my first smart phone, I am enthralled. I love my myTouch!
