Everyone loves screenshots…

The ninjas over at boygenius are at it again this time scoring purported screen shots from Best Buy showing the expected “launch” dates of both our beloved G1 and the Blackberry Pearl Flip 8220 Kickstart whatever other name it has. Word out of boygenius is that the G1 won’t actually be on sale from Best Buy until November 16th. Sounds like a random day to launch a phone but hey, we’re all about T-mobile getting this phone into as many hands as possible as quick as possible. NO word on how this effects online sales in non 3G areas.

    I love your site! I have this site on my top favorites! Anyway, I’m a big Blackberry fan! Any news on the Blackberry Curve II? I currently have a pink colorwared Curve 8320 and I am totally in love with it! Once again, I love your site! T-Mobile rocks! =)

    nicky are you paris sister? lol

  • T1 Connect

    ya know whats f’d up we shouldn’t be getting the g1 on national launch with everyone else whats the point of tmo selling us the g1 early just so we can have it the day everyone else can walk in a store and get one. also i dont think its fair that tmo employees(which im not)should have to wait for this phone they should have it first out of anyone else. i heard movie stars got it first. fuck movie stars they dont do shit for us they dont even work for tmo why the fuck they get if b4 us tmo customers do. they probably didn’t even know shit about it until last tuesday at the press conference.

  • J

    I heard there were some employees who got it early. I believe it was retail people in 3G launched markets. They will also have a presale for employees, but the date hasn’t been released. They just said that RSRs and CSRs get first crack at them, so they can familiarize themselves with them. Hopefully the rest of the employees get in on that soon after. I need one for the wife.

  • DaveB

    This gives me hope that online sellers like letstalk.com will be able to offer the G1 sooner rather than later.

  • GreenEyedBandit

    I work for tmobile customer service, and got G1 training today,woohoo can’t wait

  • mrssherico

    @T1connect
    Wow I’ve never seen you on here with so much anger, where is it coming from?

  • TomCruise

    @mrssherico, with the kind of involvement T1 Connect has on this forum its but natural to see all his emotions poured, over time. :-)

  • T1 Connect

    @mrsherico cause i dont like the fact that the phone was intro’d on 9/23 and we have to wait til 10/22 to get it and we were going nuts over this thing for months(and we deserve it customers and employees) and people like paris hilton and carmello anthony(who has a tmo bold)get these things b4 us and they have life so easy. they should have to wait just like us they have freakin money and get shit free and we have to bust our asses working and pay 299 for the damn thing and wait a whole month for it. that sux! bigtime.

    p.s. everyone pardon the language im just speaking from a fair point of view.

  • dat chyk

    @T1 Connect – I feel you. I think we should receive the phone before customers on the street can go get one. If not, what’s the point of the pre-sale? Other than the fact that we don’t have to wait in line. I’d like to show mine off before other people who didn’t pre-order get it!

  • T1 Connect

    @tomcruise and dat chyk thank you. appriciations are in order.

  • mrssherico

    @T1connect
    I totally agree with you especially about the stars being allowed all of those extra “perks”. Its not fair but I guess it just comes along with having a well known name.Tmo knows that if a star is seen with it or is known to have it then that will influence other people to want/get it to.People should have sense enough not to base their purchases on something so shallow,but you would be surprised at how many people do it.

  • T1 Connect

    i really dont know whats up with that whold shizznit but i saw the paris hilton (yes i said “the paris hilton”) with a sidekick 3 it kind of turned me off with that phone. i said no they didn’t let this b&*^ do a sidekick ad. i kind of felt bad for the sidekick that poor phone probably got a stuckup version of herpes now.

  • Matthew

    Okay, I give up. I think I’m going to go ahead and try out the G1. I am a hardcore WM guy but all I see is Google, Andriod, and G1, and I must confess I was getting kind of anoid with all the G1 talk. But since there is nothing else comparable at the moment (at least not through T-Mobile), I think I’ll go ahead and try it out for myself while I wait for the next WM phone.

  • Macho

    Yeah tmobile should of gave us ppl who preorders the chance of getting the phone at least a week early like the sidekick 3

  • Matthew

    One more thing… Why can’t we get a phone that has it all! The G1 has everything except UMA, what’s up with that? And another thing is that you can’t tether! That really doesn’t make sense to me. I don’t know if anyone can clarify…

  • eruscool

    I agree with what T1 and others are saying. i’ve been a customer since tmo was freaking voicestream, and have stuck around even tho they were far behing other carriers both in phones and on network. it would only be fair to allow ppl who pre ordered to get it before anyone else. like T1 said ” that’s the point of a freaking pre-sale “!!!!!!!!!

  • eruscool

    everything aside, i’m glad tmo is finally steping up and making things happen. to tell you the truth i thought tmo wouldn’t have 3g till like 2011 when everyone else would be using something faster.

  • Macho

    What does UMA mean? I keep forgetting and I’m sure that for tether someone will be making download application for it

  • Matthew

    It’s the T-Mobile Hotspot@Home thing where you can use a wireless signal to make and receive calls just like you would with a cell tower. And you can switch between the two seemlessly

  • Macho

    Thanks matthew ….now is there anyway that it can be aviable threw the android market??

  • incrediboi

    Hell yeah I fucking agree with ya T1…people who preorder and who had been loyal customers to tmobile should receive it like a week or two ahead…what makes it even worst that even though we preorder we are not gurantee to have it on the 22nd either..why folks who go to the store can get one that very day…and we still be stuck days later sitting by the door waiting for the fucking ups man man to fucking arrive…wtf!!

  • Macho

    I agree incrediboi i think its unfair

  • tzoo

    @T1 Connect – T-Mobile employees in retail and call center tech/ customr care will have this phone prior to launch. Also, training has begun for tech on the actual device.

  • Matthew

    @Macho – I don’t think so. While the phone is likely to be capable, it is a service that T-Mobile provides. Hopefully they will have a ROM update in the future.

  • dat chyk

    @tzoo – I’m glad Tmo employees will get the phones first…they should!! Then, pre-sale customers should be next (in my opinion anyway)! Pre-sale is supposed to mean that you get it first…not just order it first.

  • NickyHilton

    MORE Blackberry Curve II news!!! lol. The white T-Mobile G1 is one cute, clean looking device…The black and brown colors look sophisticated.

  • mrssherico

    Obviously the preorder doesn’t mean that you get one first, it just means that you get one.If you knew that before and you still chose to preorder then that’s your bad.If you didn’t then just take it as a lesson learned.

  • dat chyk

    @mrssherico – No shit sherlock! Did you read what I said??? Hence the words “supposed to mean…”

    Smart ass!

    LMAO, read the post before you try to respond with a smart ass comment!

  • mrssherico

    @dat dumb chick
    Before yo simple ass continues to be offended about what I said let me tell you: I wasn’t at all talkin about what you posted.I was responding to the fact of a lot of preorder customers being upset about getting their G1 possibly late.Please don’t think your that important.I wasn’t being smart in any way when I said what I said earlier I was being real, so next time for your sake please know what your talkin about before you “try” to stunt.

  • T1 Connect
