Mission Pre-sale = Success

capture2

I know from reading the comments and the forums so many of you are among the lucky pre-sale buyers for the G1. Apparently there are quite a few more of you than we previously thought as fool.com is reporting that over 1.5 million G1’s were sold during the pre-sale. The better news, more than that number are marked for availability in the retail channel. About 10 days ago there were reports that T-mobile had hopes to sell 2 million phones before the end of 2009, and now we could be looking at that number being eclipsed before the end of 2008.

This is all amazing news because everybody is buying into Android basically on faith, with the truth being that almost nobody who has ordered via pre-sale has actually touched the phone. This phone needs to be a success right from the gate, the iPhone needs a rival and T-mobile needs a win. I know that loyal T-mobile fans want nothing more than to shove the G1 into the faces of iPhone lovers everywhere and say “haha, I have a bar code scanner,” or something like that.

  • T1 Connect

    yo its like tmonews is reading my mind. i know im gonna stick my phone is some jobsphone glorifier’s face and say “burn” put that thing away its just been murdered. but 2mil by the end of the 2k8 i didn’t think it was so popular with the masses.

  • David

    I think its the promise of Android moreso than the phone itself. The handset isn’t going to win any awards but that doesn’t matter, Android might and its function over form this time. As opposed to the iPhone which is form over function hence all its difficulties.

  • rolltide

    LOL iphone lovers suck on the G1….

  • T1 Connect

    i dont really know why people are caught up in fashion, everyone forgets about whats inside the phone, and what programmers and developers go thru to put these things together. sure its not the best looking phone in the world but its not the worst looking phone in the world. it think its got it own little sweet style to it. its different.

  • rolltide

    This a site for G1 lovers and tmobile lover so if ur not get out of here…

  • Infamous Rell

    1.5 million is really a remarkable number. Especially considering that the only way anyone even knew about the phone was because of blogs and different tech sites. Also, all the phones sold were bought by existing customers that never even held the phone before. I’m glad I stuck with T-Mo. In fact, I might put on my magenta jump suit that I have and go pop lock in front of the local T-Mo store to show my support.

  • David

    @roll, who exactly are you talking too???

    Oct. 22nd, 10 days way I really want my G1 so I can get rid of my Sidekick.

    Go T-Mobile / Android / HTC!

  • SheShe

    Wow thats a whole lotta phones good job TMO!!

  • mr.gadget

    We’re setting records baby go tmo

  • I’ve pre-ordered two of the G1’s on Sept 25th. I had a dream last night that the ups man showed up to deliver my phones, and when I opened them up, all it was was 2 calculators! Then I woke up in a cold sweat! Do I need therapy?…..

  • Tmo Android

    I really hope this doesn’t effect employees getting phone because I really want mine.

  • Will

    Wow 1.5 million and. Its not. Even out yet. Hopefully ups. Can handle. That and. Not. Pull. A. DHL. Lol.

  • Thanks for another new read TMO News… This is needed at this point since we are only a little less than a week and half away from getting this device…

    @T1 Connect

    yo whats the issue with memory you mentioned on other blog? Is there anyway an app can be created to utilize added memory on phone? Just curious if the hardware specs are up to snuff?
    I mean software does run hardware…right???

    Anyway.. Its seems down hill from here…I mean its already Sunday and these babies should start shippping by wednesday right???

    At this point I will take any color I can get…

    @byost83

    That ain’t no dream thats a nightmare!!! Were they the old texas instrument calculators with the red LED’s…lol

  • tzoo

    several have mentioned the curve at the bottom being ugly and not needed. maybe a little ugly but it has a function. it will protect your screen from cracking when dropped. when you receive your phone you’ll understand better.

  • Tmobile2lyfe

    Do you think that the trackball can light up in different colors?

  • Iphone KILA

    Go G1 Go ………………

    G1, the Iphone KILA.

    I’m tired of apple and ATT tactics. The way they want to restrict the phone and always taking advantage of people to rip them off. I wish apple and ATT meet the same fate Lehman met. !! Bankrupt !!

  • B.

    The trackball is solid black. It won’t have any light up colors :(

  • Mr. Moon

    The trackball on the White G1 is not solid black. It looks kinda white/grey. So is it possible since its a “limited edition” it might have the option to change colors…. Hmmm…. You never know.

  • Joey

    could there BE any more typos in that first sentence?

  • Roll Tide

    joey what u talking about?

  • ian

    The trackball doesnt light up that would make no sense because then it would appeal to a younger crowd.sidekicks do this but thats why they appeal to a younger crowd and then they would really be calling it the sidekick 4 if it had that.

  • USCmed

    this is all being done even before tmo launches their national ad campaign??? wow! i cant imagine what the response will be once commercials start airing during football games, basketball games, house, the office, etc. etc. and of course trojan football games. :) glad i preordered on the 23rd.

  • it doesnt have to be an iphone killer…its just a better phone..no phone is going to kill the iphone….but now they’re going to be phones that are competing with it.the iphone will always be on top, only apple can compete with itself. the iphone and G1 are both different they serve different purposes to the different users

  • Laura

    Shipping Wednesday? THIS WEDNESDAY?! When I preordered it said would be here on the 22nd, but does that mean it could be here sooner, or it would not arrive before the 22nd?

  • Yo check out thtis site with some apps…

    WHOA. 1.5 million? I remember when we thought 60,000 (first hints of info early on) was a lot… then 100,000,…

    By the way, sometime on or around October 20th, I’m going to have to stop visiting this site. If I have to read *ONE* more freaking “WHERE’S MY PHONE??” “WHEN IS THE UPS MAN GOING TO COME?” type of posts, my head’s gonna explode….

  • SiliconAddict

    All I know is they better have a couple in store on the 22nd when I get there at 6AM and sit there in front of the store with a thermos of hot chocolate, a blanket, and a warm jacket or I’m going to go Mr. T on the suckers. I pity the fool who gets between me and my G1.

  • tim

    i want this phone so bad. i must have the uma b/c service sucks at my house.

  • T1 Connect

    @kevman 420 no you cant create a app to increase memory only to free up memory or revamp apps that takes up less space, but i noticed in the emulator the phone says 71mb free space and also someone who played with it said it only had 64mb of rom space left. i hope if we are downloading apps from the marketplace and have to install into the phone and not the storage card its not gonna eat up the remainding 71 or 64 or whatever is left in the phone storage. i wanna know whats up with that.

  • T1 Connect

    its really close to being wing or dash rom space. i dont want another one it gets on my nerves. look at the herald came to tmo with winmo 6 200mhz processor 64mb ram 128 rom that was nice for what 3 months then the tytn 2 came along for att and had a 400mhz processor and 128mb of rom and it was a better phone than the wing and seems to be in tuned in with what was the way to go and run winmo at an acceptable level. i dont want to buy the g1 with 256mb of rom then sprint gets a htc device in a month with 512 rom and 256 mb of rom and it runs and android better than the g1. thats ridiculous.

  • T1 Connect

    sorry tytn 2 had 256 rom and 128 ram

  • Can someone tell me how Wired can put out a review like this when the phone aint out yet????

    Help me out here please TMONews!!!

    ——————————————————
    The first of the user reviews are trickling in and it is not exactly a big thumbs up for the T-Mobile G1, the device based on Google’s newly launched Android operating system.

    The G1 “does not run as smoothly as you would think” says a user with the handle ‘kaziko’ on AndroidCommunitydotcom

    A few applications on the phone “stutter” and the device needs to be restarted more than a few times to ensure smooth operation, says the review.

    There’s another potential hazard for G1 buyers. The “battery charger makes the bottom of the phone extremely hot,” says the review.
    —————————————————–

    WTF?????????????????????????

  • dat chyk

    @SiliconAddict – LOL. It will be interesting to see if there are massive lines for the phone.

  • Infamous Rell

    @T1 Connect
    I don’t think the 256mb rom will be a major problem. Check out this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tD8eoMp-dnM . At about the 2:10 mark he says a little bit about Android having a smart memory management system and that applications actual file sizes are relatively small.

  • T1 Connect

    @kevman 420 yea i read that too the guys a a-hole. yea its got its problems but those things can be addressed. just like they upgrade winmo from 6 to 6.1 and makes it run better you should be able to do that with android and the fucka that wrote the article knows that but he probably one of the people that cant keep the iphone out they mouth. a stinkin iphone sucka.

  • Lets look at numbers

    Phone Price Range from $179 – $300 Average $230
    Days PreSale lasting 7 days
    Phones Sold 1.500,000

    Math:
    1,500,000
    x 230

    $345.000.000
    Not bad for a week.

  • @ Roll Tide I wont know until I see them in my package car but when I do see them I’ll be sure to post it may be 2 days before the 22nd Im guessing on Monday

  • T1 Connect

    @dat chyk whats up baby. i know youre probably going to be the first one that gets that phone seeing as how you live in the same state as the origin of that g1 but let me know what u think when you get it ok babes.

  • fastball

    I think this is great news, but I just can’t see 1.5 “sold.” I think it would be great for T-Mobile if 1.5 have already been pre-bought but unless there was a surge of over a million bought in the last week, I’m pretty sure 1.5 haven’t been bought up. As of last week, I knew that about 100,000 had been presold, so I don’t think numbers could surge that much.

    The only thing I could see this being is how many phones T-Mobile has ordered from HTC to send to the stores and to have in inventory. I guess we will see. This is something I hope I am wrong on.

  • Anjoo

    Hey everyone!
    I was wondering if anyone could let me know if I will be part of the first shipment or second shipment of the g1. I preordered my phone on Sept 27th.

  • dat chyk

    @T1 – I hope I’m one of the first…since Forest Park is 30 minutes away from my house! The bad part is that I will have to wait until about 5:30 pm (on whatever day) to see if its waiting for me at the house. I was trying to order it (G1) so fast that I wasn’t even thinking about sedning it to my job instead! Come to think of it, I don’t even know if I had the option to ship it somewhere else anyway. But, don’t worry…you know I got u (wink) and u’ll be the first to know I got it!

  • southern bell

    i am tired of reading applefanboys on other sites belittling this phone when they have no idea what it can do. They keep talking about no apps but they have what apps a beer game and fish bowls ha

  • @ T1 Ya man I understand.. freaking patches come out all the time… That dude was a real penis and after reading more I could tell he had an iPhone vibrated in his ass while writing it…

    I was just thinking if the ROM was an issue they could write an app to store the shit on the sd card..

    Should be good for what I need…

    The way I change phones, when another comes out in six months thats better well guess what??? I will simply buy it too…

    I upgrade about every 8-10 months or so anyway…

    So if G2 comes down the pipe, I give G1 one to my wife and snatch the new one up…and so on and so on and so on..

    Damn,,, freaking ain’t even got G1 and I’m talking bout G2…

  • T1 Connect

    mee too son savin the other line for winmo device whichever one i like the best.

  • Hey why can’t you play any flash movies on any phone?
    Or can you???
    Will the G1 support it?
    I also can’t wait for Sling player for Android…

  • timmyjoe42

    Now I want to order one, just because everyone else did. I’ve only had my Pearl 8120 like a month though.

  • SiliconAddict

    Kevman420,

    Blame androidcommunity.com for that post. They posted that “review” so fast that the original person who reviewed the G1 had to post update IN the thread countering it, and explaining the gitteryness comes from being on EDGE not G3, and the memory leak was from an app that was being downloaded while he went out of his service area and it corrupted the app install. And yet the author of the post refuses to update the review.
    I posted in the thread that the author should be smacked upside the head for not updating this, because it makes T Mobile and Google look like they are putting out an unfinished product. The result? He banned my IP. Professional folks over there.
    Meanwhile this “review” is getting more and more traction. I’ve had 3 people on my livejournal reference it and say they are going to hold off until the platform matures.
    Thank you androidcommunity! >:-(

  • T1 Connect

    @kevman 420 because every phone doesn’t support flash. if you got a winmo device or a symbian device go to http://www.skyfire.com and download for your phone that browser can play any freakin thing. oh by the way please make sure you have 3g wifi preffered to use it or a really good edge connection to use it.

  • SiliconAddict

    Kevman420 ,

    In regards to flash. There currently is no flash player in the works. No flash player == no flash. However expect this to change in the future. The thing is I’m not sure if this would be a good thing or not. Flash is notoriously processor hungry, and the heavier the processor usage the shorter your battery life is going to be. while I’m not a major fan of MS, I think their flash competitor, read: silverlight, is MUCH MUCH more CPU friendly and would scale well. However MS being MS I don’t trust them to try and embrace, extend, extinguish methodology that they have used over the years. so…..

  • T1 Connect

    about that i think they said the webkit browser can play flash videos but you gotta ask a tmo rep that question

  • SiliconAddict

    T1 Connect,

    Nope. Someone has already tried to go into youtube with the browser. It gives you an error message telling you to install flash. Its not there…..yet.

  • T1 Connect

    well that just sux

  • T1 Connect

    you know what when the g1 gets launched and the media jumps on it cause i know they will. people are going to find out about it. thier gonna go to the store or online and try to get one. and they are gonna be sold out or backorderd. only a select few until the second and third batch gets released. so the first wave of people who got these phones, for a little while, we are gonna be exclusive like a moaaaa.

  • unknown

    cool thing is that i already have one, and yes the barcode scanner is great. moaaaaa

  • Jason

    @Kevman420 if you look in the comments of his review he updates it and pretty much takes back all the negative things he said. He found answers to all his problems. The apps stuttered because he wasnt on 3g and took longer to load up and the phone got hot because he wasnt using the charger that came with it.

  • USCmed

    if any of you are up this late, although its just 2 on the west coast, i found this posting a little while ago. looks like the actual launch for the g1 will be this thursday, the 16th, possibly meaning we might get our phones just a bit earlier. if this old news already, sorry to rehash but this still has me excited. fight on! http://www.g1phone.blogspot.com/

  • jesse831

    hi i just pre-ordered the g1 on 10-12 and i wanted to see wat would be the estimated delivery day …. thanx in advanced

  • Anjoo

    Is Sept 27th 1st shipment or 2nd? Anyone know?

  • Laura

    Sept 27th is 1st shipment.

    But does that mean it should ship on Oct 22nd, or it should arrive on the 22nd?

  • @ T1 Connect Thanks bro.. Nice link..I am sure that all this stuff is finally gonna get taken care of now we have this OPEN platform… I am sure some dudes here are programmers gonna have some lights go off in their heads and make some shit we need…
    I hope so anyway…

    @ Jason I stopped reading the article after I had enough of the dudes ignorance, knowing the thing was new and he just released his article to try to stay ahead the curve. By him leaving it up, is stupid!!! He must think it shows that it could run crappy if you don’t know WTF your doing. So I stopped reading. If it were my blog, I would remove my effed up article…But thanks alot for the update!!! Glad its no issue!!!

    DAMN I JUST THOUGHT OF SOMEHTHING… HOW LONG I GOTTA CHARGE THIS BITCH WHEN I GET BEFORE I CAN HIT THE STREETS WIT IT???
    DAMN I NEED A BATTERY READY TO GO!!!

    I was just thinking how I’m gonna hit up the local TMO store when I get it for my accessories… case, car charger, whatever… Look at the suckas on line while I browse the goods…

    Sorry, I gotta get some kinda gratification for ordering early… lolol

    Naaaa just kidding feel bad for anyone who didn’t order in time… I better shut up…mine might not show up… :-P

    Thanks All!!

  • udontknowme

  • @ T1 connect

    Hope there getting a version ready for Android…

    Skyefire kicks ass…

  • Will

  • scoop34

    i just saw this on the g1 phone blog website. It may be nonsense but if anything it gives me a little hope that there is a chance we will get it early. If someone already posted it..i apologize. Check it out http://g1phone.blogspot.com/2008/10/t-mobile-launch-party-set-16th-october.html

  • Madison

    no light up trackball. darnit
    lol

    AND @ #54 dat chyk.
    i dont think there was an option to send it somewhere else.
    what happens if your not home when ups comes ! ah.

  • T1 Connect

    they attempt two more deliveries and tehhn return you package to the sender

  • dat chyk

    @Madison – I didn’t think I saw that option. Thanks.

    Unfortunately, if a signature is required (which it better be) and you are not there…they will try to deliver it again the next day. I believe you can call and arrange to pick it up if you miss the 1st delivery (I’m not sure if it is the next day or after the 2nd attempt though). Maybe someone else can clarify.

  • T1 Connect

    if you miss ur package u can go call the local center and arrange for pickup over here they close at 8 and they tell u the ups driver comes back at 715-8 so be there by then to pick up ur package.

  • I Want The Google Phone

    If you live in a rural area your phone will be left on your porch or door step. Tmobile as a policy does not require a signature in these area’s for cell phones. Every phone i ever ordered has always been left at my houses door while i lived in a house.

  • dat chyk

    @ I Want The… yea, I’ve had them leave phones at my door too! But, I don’t want them to do that. I am not in a rural area, so I don’t understand why they did that. Nevertheless, I am leaving a note on my door making sure that they don’t just leave it.

  • brian-y

    i live in new jersey so i should be one of the 1st in line lol lets hope ?

  • T1 Connect

    ive always had to sign for mine

  • udontknowme

    the phone is not going to be here early this is rumors…I will be willing to bet you

  • I Want The Google Phone

    Depends on were you live and if its a condo or apt building. If you own or live in a house they always drop it off. hey any other employees order there Bronze G1 today? I ordered 2 one for each number but only got a confirmation for 1 order. I seen in the “sales memo” they were only allowing 1 per employee. Looks like the wife is assed out until lanch lol

  • dat chyk

    LOL, that’s messed up.

  • T1 Connect

    dont matter a shit to me as long as i get it. dont care if he leaves it outside my crib. nobody on this block better not touch my shit ill or ring everyones doorbell and straight up yap them. til someone coughs it up and that aint no joke.

  • Armytank

    On some videos i have seen i saw the g1 in lanscape mode without opening the key pad. Does it flip or does it only work in certain applications like that?????

    Yeah I got to order my g1 bronze today… I didn’t get a confirmation # and my discount was missing so I called to special care, they advised me my phone was being shipped out tomorrow for employees ordered today….. VERY NICE!!!! HIGH FIVE!!!

  • T1 Connect

    ha i got another confirmattion that the phones are being shipped from forrest park georgia so all you down south mothaf****** ya gonna pimpin b4 the rest of us.

  • GreenEyedBandit tmo rep

    Yeah the tmobile warehouse is located in Forest park,Ga….

  • dat chyk

    @GreenEyedBandit… – Yea, I heard from a Tmo rep today that they allowed you guys to order and that you should receive your phone within 48 hours. That’s good! You should be able to get it first (in my opinion anyway).

    The Tmo rep also told me that the pre-order was 25,000 and NOT 1.5 mil. The 1.5 mil is the number of phones Tmo ordered from HTC. He said, “You will more than likely get your G1 before the 22nd because we are starting to fulfill the pre-sale orders this week.” Again, that’s what he said…but, if I call back, I’m sure a diff rep will tell me something different. A couple of weeks ago a rep told me to start checking UPS for my phone on October 13th. She said “You will receive your phone BY the 22nd…so start checking the week before.” Again…I’m not sure if its true…but I check UPS and my-tmo daily to see if my data planned changed anyway.I will be so excited when I no longer get the “red” letters on UPS!!! (For those of you who check, you know what I’m talkin about!) LOL.

  • dat chyk

    @T1 – I guess that’s me!! YES!!!! I’m ready!! :)

  • T1 Connect

    who said thier shit is getting shipped tomorrow. ok now thats fucked up weve been waiting for almost a month and most of tmobiles employees have never heard of this phone until after the 23rd(minus the lovely ones in here)they already had thier time with the shit now give us ours and stop chiefing. i want my damn phone why are you people doing this to us its fucking tourcher for us and we see all these damn people on the web with the phone what about us huh! what about the customer. we are the ones that bumped up the sales to 1.5 million. again what about us. send us our damn phones.

    @ Dat chyk Thanks
    I can’t believe how much I’m looking for this. I called Tmobile today and the dude sounded like he was hiding something. Could’nt give me date when shipping would begin. Only said I will get it by 22nd no matter how I asked for ship date..

  • T1 Connect

    na son im just a regular technology junkie heavy. the comment u see up there isn’t fully there so you only see one piece.

  • dat chyk

    @Kev – You’re welcome sweetie! LOL, Yea, the Tmo rep I talked to acted like a secret agent with the FBI too! He wasn’t really tryna tell me shit! But…every now n then, I get a cool ass Tmo rep that gives me the business!

    LOL. T1 Connect is just a tech genius…he doesn’t work for Tmo! LOL, I wish he did so I can get the inside business…but he doesn’t.

  • T1 Connect

    aight go to you tube and type in “pattern lock on wing” and its the first video. just put it up but imma take it down maniana so look.

  • dat chyk

    @T1 – Ok, I checked that on you tube. That’s what’s up!

  • GreenEyedBandit tmo rep

    Its mananna homie…..it cause we as employees don’t have any info on ship dates for this device. Trust me I know I’ve gotten many calls on this topic. I tell them from the arrival dates that ups has they promise if sent 13 or 14 might arrive by 22nd or before..unless shipping express which is a different story.

  • T1 Connect

    ok bandit! i will listen. turning the hopes back on right now as i write.

  • Roll Tide

    T1 what kind text got?

  • Roll Tide

    lol sorry about that, i meant what text u got from TM?

  • T1 Connect

    what text

  • Roll Tide

    i thought u got a text or something saying they shipped them 2 day

  • Laura

    what do the ups red letters mean?

  • T1 Connect

    na someone said the emplyees g1 was getting shipped tomorrow and it made me stormy.

  • Kevman420

    Hate to ask this here… You all got insurance on your G?

    Can I add it anytime? I don’t have it and wondering if I should add it???

    I think I better…

  • T1 Connect

    yo i added min like ten mins after ordering on the 23rd

  • Kevman420

    Red letters mean thats the info that pops up when you try to track on UPS. It comes up with message that is in red letters your order aint in system or some jazz like that…

    We are waiting for it to say shipping… :-)

  • Kevman420

    @ T1
    you added it how? did you have to call them?
    If I add it now it will go to my current phone right?
    Thanks for info…

  • T1 Connect

    you cant add it now have to do it within 14 days of purchase but when you get ur g1 call tmo and give them the new imei number and ur insurance will switch over

  • Laura

    is the shipping tracking number your phone number?

  • Kevman420

    @ T1
    Yo thanks alot man..

    Just setup new gmail to get ready with dat…

  • T1 Connect

    xxx-xxx-xxxx in the reference tracking section

  • T1 Connect

    sorry the xxx’s represent your phone number

  • dat chyk

    @ Laura – The RED letters from UPS say, “UPS could not locate the shipment details for your request. Verify your information and try again.”

    Basically, it means that my order has not shipped! So when the RED letters are gone (and the message) my G1 is on the way. Login to UPS.com and click on tracking…then “reference” then enter your mobile number xxx-xxx-xxxx. If you get RED letters…then u will feel me. Ok?

  • dat chyk

    @T1 – Thanks ;)

  • Kevman420

    @ T1
    Yo thanks alot man..

    Just setup new gmail to get ready with dat…

  • I Want The Google Phone

    A email was sent to the “corporate address” saying you phone has shipped and her is you tracking number. employees are not allowed to get the fast shipping option so its coming ground. Looks like i will have it monday. 2 days before you guys isnt such a big deal.

  • udontknowme

    OK I must admit the phone is not coming friday…i still check UPS tmobile and here three times a day for an update. What I really should be doing is checking myself into a mental hospital before I go G1 nuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    can someone give robert dotson’s phone number i wanna talk to him in a upsetting manner of the screaming type.

  • kimberly

    Well, I preordered the G1 yesterday and they said I should get it by november 9th or 10th. I’m so excited!!! I decided to take a leap of faith for a quality phone and this should satisfy. It will be so nice bringing it into work when I get it and seeing all of the iphone users ooohhh and aaahhh over it (I hope anyways) I work for the other carrier and they laugh now cause I have t-mobile but just wait……

    I also think it’s great that the G1 is selling so much even though t-mobile and google haven’t been publicising it like att and apple did with the iphone. It just shows that this should be a great device.

  • T1 Connect

    dont feel bad girl when i used to work for sprint i rocked my tmo phone i didn’t care what anybody think just rock ya exclusive joint in front of them and say killa.

  • J

    My G1 was shipped today =)

  • T1 Connect

    @ j
    are u an employee

  • kimberly

    My only worry is that I preorder the G1 without others testing it and I end up waiting because there were some bugs (crossing my fingers and knocking on wood)
    I had to listen to so many people complain about the iphone when it was released because not all of the bugs were worked out.
    All I know is I want that barcode scanner program it is so going to help me this Christmas. Where can I go to see some other programs?
    My sister in law has t-mobile and she is seing green cause she upgraded to the blackberry pearl a few months ago and now she can’t get the G1. I think she’s contemplating stealing my phone :)

  • T1 Connect

The report of how many we sold is completely off. We pre-sold roughly 100k so far. Great start, but I have no idea from where this “Fool” idiot pulled 1.5 million.

    @RockTripod – Yea the numbers change every time I talk to a Tmo rep, but they did say that was the amount of units Tmo ordered from HTC. Actually, I think its great…but, I really just want the one they sold to me at this point. I could care less about the exact number they sold.

  • dat chyk

    @Madison – LOL, I know… right.

  • Armytank

    Hey there is a post on http://www.androidauthority.com about silver light by microsoft. It says that it is a competitor to adobe Flash. Does anybody know anything else about this???????

  • Armytank

    Will it work like flash if it came to Android????

  • Armytank

    Microsoft Silverlight is a programmable web browser plugin that enables features such as animation, vector graphics and audio-video playback that characterize rich Internet applications. Silverlight competes with technologies such as Adobe Flash, SVG, Adobe Flex, Adobe Shockwave, JavaFX, Curl and the JavaScript programming language.[1] Version 2.0, now in beta-testing, brings additional interactivity features and support for .NET languages and development tools

  • Armytank

    I got that from Wiki.com
    SOrry for the long paragraph.
    Thats pretty exciting if it comes to Android.

  • Armytank

    Here I am posting questions then answering them myself.
    Im still pretty new to this bligging thing as you guys probably know.

  • Kevman420

    Yo think of what can be done by everyone having a bar scanner.

    Did you ever want to take inventory of all yer electronics and stuff? Maybie sell them on e-bay if you have alot. Well a small progream lets you scan all your shit identifies it. You create a list you can bluetooth to a spreadsheet with current values and shit on the fly…

    The shit is limitless…
    Manufacturers now have a reason to have a bar code everywhere.
    I mean never before did the public really have access to carrying around a scanner.

    gonna be real interesting to see what comes out.

    scan your groceries and keep track of what your buying. get alerts automatically when the shit is on sale…

    its freaking gonne be nice…

    everyone will be more organized…

    Or your on the phone and you need to give someone info.

    It would go like this…

    “Yo, I need help my toilet is clogged”

    “Do you have a make and model number”

    “Hey hang on let me scan the bitch..”

    “Oh its a Turbo Flush 2000 and its freaking clogged”

    Hang on we’ll get you help right away…

    Man I can’t wait… lololol

    Hey kinda scary though if they start barcodeing PEOPLE!!!

  • Kevman420

    yo baby can i have your digits

    hang on go ahead and scan my tatoo…

    damn im buggin

  • T1 Connect

    @armytank silverlight is way better and faster and is a smaller install than flash. thats what nbc used to broadcast the olympics on nbc website and anyone who has vista home premium or ultimate can launch your media center then go to nbc olympics. pretty clear! currently silverlight is at 1.0 with a 2.0 beta in progress but 2.0 is better with no bugs. i kind of like it. try it!

  • T1 Connect

    yo kev let me borrow your brain son i wanna see whats in there. where do you come up with these things (#46).

  • Lance Romance

    @T1 connect
    u seem to be technologically inclined like myself lol.
    I don’t have an answer for the question i’m about to aks.

    I’m thinking about buying the HTC Touch Diamond (US unlocked version) and wanted to know is there anyway to hack/tweak the phone to make it usable with t-mobile’s 3G bands?

    Any1 else with input can ask this question.
    this might not be the place for it and i’m sorry.

    to make it relevant I will say “I can’t wait for my frikkin G1 to come already!” lol

  • Armytank

    @t1 connect
    It sounds pretty good i hope it comes to the g1.
    @Lance Romance
    HOw are you going to be able to use both the g1 and the diamond?
    It would be pretty cool to have both but i would get confused on which one my real phone is.
    I think you will end up using the G1 more!!!!

  • udontknowme

    I have not been able to access my tmobile account all morning?

  • dat chyk

    @Kevman – Yea, join the BS club!

  • Kevman420

    I just called T-Mo and they said congratulations your order was input correctly on the 23rd of Sept. Looks like it was finalized on the 29th.

    You did everything right.. Um let me check to see if it has shipped..

    Um It looks as if it did NOT ship yet.

    Oh I wish we can order ours I am waiting for white…

    Is there anything else I can help you with today!!!

    I said you can order, she said not white yet..Oh…

    I felt like saying aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh shut uppppppppppp…

    ————————————————————
    SHIP MY SHIT!!!

    Its obvious they are not shipping by FIFO!!!

    Who the heck knows what their criteria is?

    My bill is due on the 21st for $52bucks. Could that be an issue? I dont know!!!

    I think I am gonna just stop looking. It’s really depressing hearing others who ordered later getting shipped. I am very happy for you folks but obviously jealous too…

    Anyway, Nothing happening on East Coast (new jersey) on my end yet for anyone interested… Anyone from Jersey get shipped yet???

    This sucks!!!

  • Infamous Rell

    Apparently it looks like the only customers showing tracking information are on the west coast and the northeast region of the country. So I’m guessing the rest of us should start seeing tracking updates later on today. I hope I get mine early cause I’m just 10 miles from Forest Park, GA.

  • Kevman420

    I just want to add I am “Really Happy” the shippng has started… :-)
    Oh and given the chance… I would have rubbed it all over the blog so no worries…
    Everyone has a RIGHT to rub it in if its shipped!!!

    Its good to know where they are at… Keep the updates coming!!!

    We all been waiting!!!
    PEACE!!!

  • udontknowme

    I ordered on the 23rd and nothing yet

  • T1 Connect

    Im on the east coast also. No tracking # and no myt-mobile site either.

  • jesse831

  • Lance Romance

    its 12 35 here n chicago and I ‘m still getting those depressing ass red letters… and I can’t log in to mytmobile either. How I see it is they are updating something (order status i hope)….. if it was too much traffic it would say that instead of ‘the server is not responding”.

  • colejank

    hey i am pretty new to this chat but i have been reading and keeping up on this site. i just thought i would let you all know that i just talked to a rep and my order has been placed but is on back order and i did my pre-order 5 minutes after the site went up!! i sadly wont get mine till the first week of November! this is not fair!!!

  • Carl

    Rocky Mountain region and we are not able to see tmo account either.

  • Kevman420

    @ colejank

    When did you order? What date?
    You should not be waiting till November if you ordered Sept 23rd.

    This better not be right or I am canceling my shit!!!

    I mean it. They can keep it if this is the truth!!!

  • Kevman420

    @ colejank
    I mean you were promised by at least the Oct. 22nd right?
    What do you mean you ordered when site went up?

  • Eruscool

    I got cold feet on the 23rd but changed my mind and pre-ordered on the 24th, i hope i get mine on time. i’m here in chicago and also get the damn red letters.

  • colejank

    @kevman
    i ordered the day they unveiled the phone. i was pressing refresh every 5 minutes on the pre-order site and immediately ordered it! thats what i said to the rep, that its not right i should have to wait till november if i ordered it in september! and no they didnt promise me anything, she just said that at the longest would be the end of the first week of november! this is just not fair man!

    i meant when the pre-order site went online for everyone to use. didnt you say yours is on back order too?

  • Kevman420

    @ colejank

    YUP… Said backorder bro..

    I am still trying..

    that really sucks man and I feel for you cause it really sucks…

    Everything happens for a reason I guess…

    they did tell me however that it will be here by the 22nd.

    They got new post people are blogging there…

  • Kevman420

    THAT SUCKS!!!!!!!! @ Colejank!!!

    HEADING TO NEW…. POST LATER!!!

  • Lance Romance

    yea imma be callin t-mobile today to make sure this doesn’t happen to me.

  • Rtmobile

    I am getting mine on friday
    Hahahahaha

  • Lance Romance

    yea imma have to call tmo and make sure this doesn’t happen to me

  • legaleye3000

    where do you go to check for a tracking number? Does tmo email it to you? Thanks

  • Has to better than my Shadow

    My G1 has been billed/shipped? It says billing information has been received, not sure if it has shipped though.

    @legaleye3000 UPS.com click on tracking then click track by reference, enter your t-mobile phone # in the format 555-555-5555, then it will give you a tracking number if the information has been received, easy as pie.

  • legaleye3000

    Put in phone # for reference # at UPS.com and NOTHING! I ordered within first hour of being available and live in FL.

  • BooBy Bear

    i ordered mines on the 27th and i called the t-mobile and the machine told me it was “back ordered” does that mean i have to wait till november 10th?!

  • Lance Romance

    I just received a letter from Asurion:

    Dear Lance Bell:

    We’ve got some great news regarding your T-Mobile Equipment Protection plan.

    On December 1, 2008, we’ll launch our new Premium Handset Protection Program (PHP). Our goal with PHP is simple: when our customers have issues with their phone, we want to rapidly reconnect them to the people who matter most in their lives.

    As part of the new program, we are making an important change: the new equipment protection program will be divided into two parts, insurance and enhanced warranty.

    The insurance program will continue to be underwritten by Liberty Mutual Insurance Company and will cost $4.79 per month. The insurance program will continue to cover lost, stolen, and damaged devices. Your deductible for the insurance program is based on the kind of phone you own and are using at the time your phone is lost, stolen or damages. Malfunctioning devices will no longer be covered under the insurance program, but will be covered by the enhanced warranty program.

    The new enhanced warranty program, provided through a service contract issued by Asurion Warranty Services, Inc., covers your phone if it malfunctions either during or after the manufacturer’s warranty. The enhanced warranty program will cost $1.99 per month or $1.20 per month if purchased with the insurance program. For the enhanced warranty program, there is no processing fee (or deductible) if you have a claim.

    Cool! (can’t believe I just typed that)

  • BooBy Bear
