I have the T-Mobile version of this phone called the MDA. AFAIK Sprint and T-Mobile do not strip any features from the phone. I belive one or two of the other carriers do strip some features.
A little writeup on all the software that I use on my MDA, GPS (Franson GPSgate highly recommended for use with GPS), Mapping etc: http://snurl.com/ultimatePDA I've used this phone in Europe and the mobile data worked perfectly for the PDA and Dial Up Networking for my laptop (with no roaming data surcharge).
