TMoNews Forum Weekly Wrap Up #5

Well, it’s that time again…..technically it’s a couple days past due but things have been a little hectic around here lately so I’m a little behind on the weekly wrap up.  So you know what that means don’t you?  That’s right, there is plenty of stuff that needs to be covered in this edition of the wrap up, so with that said let’s get to it shall we?

With all the news and waiting that’s going on for this little Android device that’s coming out, some of us may have forgotten that there are other phones preparing to see the light of day!  Really?  Yes!  While it may not sound as sexy as, say the Dream, or have the appeal of that certain Google operating system you may have heard of the little messaging phone that could that is the Samsung Holic.  We certainly think this is a great little device, and our very own DarkJedi has graced us with another fuzzy spy shot of this neat little Sammy.  But there is more coming than just the Holic!  Motorola is preparing to finally give us something that will fill something of a void in the T-Mobile line up, in the semi-rugged Moto Actv.  We have some decent shots of this upcoming Motorola thanks to Mdag and SidekickDrell (via a little snooping).  Well, I guess this post just wouldn’t be complete without yet another Android reference!  I’m sure you’ve already seen the slashgearTV videos that demonstrate more of the goodness that is the Android OS, so head on over to bps725′s thread and let us know what you think!

Thinking about doing some light International traveling in the near future?  Then it would probably be an excellent idea to head over and check out the extremely informative post by C_TOWN108 that let’s you know what to look for and what to be aware of.  Many thanks to C_TOWN for writing that one up for us!

How many times have you called in to customer service only to be transferred from one representative to another?  While T-Mobile does pride themselves on their excellent customer service, sometimes it’s nice to just have a direct phone number to call and not have to play the transfer game.  Well, fortunately for us TeamColtra has given us a nice list of phone numbers for us to utilize!  Hopefully T-Mobile doesn’t decide to change those up on us!

Have you ever wanted to set up call forwarding or call waiting, but just couldn’t figure out how to do it?  Well, sure you could call customer service and they would be more than willing to help you out but wouldn’t it be nice to just have a nice list of what all those commands were?  Sure it would be!  So bk1 comes to the rescue with an excellent write up of the star codes for call forwarding, call waiting, as well as some other stuff just thrown in for good measure!  Now there is no more waiting on hold just to change your call forwarding settings!

Do you know of any really good deals out there in the world of cell phones, electronics, accessories, plans, anything that makes us geeks go all teary-eyed?  You do!  Well, then head on over to the new deals category of the forum and let us know about it!  There isn’t much there right now, as it’s just in it’s infancy – but we’re hoping that it starts to pay out as it reaches adulthood!

Well, that’s about it for this weeks edition of the weekly forum wrap up! In case you weren’t aware, all of this excellent information comes to us from people just like you – our readers and other contributors.  I’m just here to sift through all the data that’s posted and present it to those of you who don’t have all the time to read through the forum just to see what all is out there – and there’s a lot out there!  We’ve got one of the best online communities, so if you ever do want to jump in and see for yourself….well, you know where it is!
