Peek Email Devices Bricked

I enjoyed my Peek Classic while it lasted. Every Peek Classic and Pronto is now a brick after the company was dropped by their wireless provider. Peek is switching to T-Mobile for service but many users will be without service for days or weeks. Peek is offering existing customers newer Peek9's with similar hardware and new software for $1 plus S/H. A fair deal if not for the gap in service.

I've switched my email to my phone and my Peek is now in my graveyard of electronic gadgets. My Samsung 451C phone's email interface is poor at best so I'll be switching to new phone in the near future.
