Open Comment Friday!

lolcat42

Oh yes, its that time, Friday, the end of the week where you, loyal readers get the opportunity to discuss whatever it is you might like in the comment section. This week saw several big news announcements and none were larger than the “launch” of the Sidekick LX, handily the most feature rich Sidekick and if early reviews are to be taken literally, quite the exceptional device. Speaking of devices that message, how about the two knuckleheads from Pennsylvania that wanted to try and ring up the world record for text messaging and only ended up figuring out that unlimited isn’t really “unlimited.” T-mobile could probably use more people like those two guys though with Q1 numbers almost being half of last year. Speaking of numbers, 1 million G1′s sold, not bad bad! So that’s the big news of the week, not the comment section is open and ready to hear what you have to say!

    Can’t wait to get my Sidekick LX (2009) May 13th. Forget what the haters say, it’s gone be a kick butt device for SIDEKICK USERS AND THE SIDEKICK MARKET! So, i’m lovin it, T-Mobile, and this site of course ^_^

    Ok so im pissed off… Tmobile needs to take off that damn upgrade fee. Coincidentally, they have put it in place everytime I’m going to upgrade. (un&*%^fortunately.) I miss the old sidekick plan. If it were still available, Id go bk to a sidekick. But whatever, soon as this contract is done, I am most likely leaving. Their 3G is still up and coming and their phones while improving, they are taking way too long. AND THATS WHAT SUCKS.

    I dont think Id be as pissed off as I am if the upgrade fee hadnt been reinstated

    yah. makes you wonder the new sidekick comin out is the reason they put back the upgrade fee because you know everybody is gonna get that phone.

    The sidekick sucks. Always have and always will. Tmobile needs a real phone.

    Iphone is best phone ever and can’t be matched

    But tmobile is the best

    SE CS8 (C905) passed FCC
    another phone I should get after HTC Tungsten

  • Brad

    upgrade is the lowest of the carriers. Plus they are coming out with phones that people really want to upgrade too! Plus a new 3g network!

    It seems that cupcake is already out from select members to test.
    I have seen several videos containing content from the promised cupcake. This video seems to have the best visual results.

    One thing the video does not show (you can see the icon on the home screen) is the Global Time. It appears to be an app that shows that globe and the positions on the glow that are in sunlight and in shadow.

    Little funny side note. So far i have gotten 5 of my friends/coworkers to get the G1. One of them got the iphone first and it broke in the first 2 weeks. He canceled his contract and went to t-mobile and parades about the G1 being better than the iphone.

  • Frank

    T-Mobile’s customer service is so bad it doesn’t matter how good the phones are.

  • Carl

    T-Mobile really, really, REALLY needs to come out with a 3G Blackberry. I’ve got a G1 but I really miss my old Curve. The GPS is way better, battery life (need I say more), and email were exceptional on the BB. I got the G1 for 3G and if Tmo came out with a 3G BB, I’d be the first to get one.

  • Rogue

    Id love 2c the iphone 4 tmobile. I dont see why the hell iphone doesnt customize themselves for all of the big 4. Thats one thing I like about Blackberry. They dont stay exclusive for just one company.

  • Galen20K

    T-MObile IS the BEst!!!

    Sometimes its been hard being with them but its really Starting to pay off with my Awsome Unlimited Loyalty Plan, to Fast Spreading 3G and SOon after 4G, and all of our Phones just keep getting BETTER and BETTER!!!

    They just need to put it in OverDrive and do it all Faster!

    Go SPEED RACER GOOoooooo!!!!

  • Rommel

    The c905 is a major phone to tmos lineup,cant wait-always had unlocked phones-

  • FILA

    you kno I wasnt much for that Touch Pro2 because it ran windows, but I didnt realize how the new windows phone OS’s look. clearly not liek the old start menu interface Im used to seeing many years ago, and i didnt know that, or maybe its just like that for the touch pro.

    You guys HAVE to see this
    http://wmpoweruser.com/?p=4159

    Its a video of the Touch Pro 2. Its def sweet and this is gonna be a killer phone. come on T, give us a date please. I need to know what to do before July, when my plan is up. Im leanin towards a G1 but if this comes out before, I will def play with it and consider it, if it has what I need. Guys check this out!!!

    A friend who has an iPhone tells me he cannot send a photo as a txt message. He liked my G1 which I am thrilled to have. I must say that talking to any T-Mobile employee is always a pleasure. Their reps are more personable than those at ANY other carrier.

    I bought one of those 2300 batteries, double capacity, for my G1. Now it lasts 2 to 3 days. Even came with a new thicker back cover so it would fit. Nice! Now if only 3G or even EDGE would spread out here in the woods where we go on weekends.

  • Still Waiting

    Just had an IM chat with T-Mobile and below is the convo…Why does T-Mobile consistantly shoot itself in the foot with the devices they are offering? My name has been changed to protect the innocent
    Ralph A: Hi Matthew , welcome to T-Mobile live Chat. I’m Ralph and I will be happy to assist you. Please give me a moment to review your question.
    Ralph A: How may I help you?
    Matthew Bryant: I have a question about your android phones
    Matthew Bryant: I have been waiting now for over 1 and a half for a new phone to upgrate to
    Matthew Bryant: My question is, I really want to stay with T-Mobile and I Really want an android phone but do not like the looks of the G1 although I love the OS
    Matthew Bryant: Do you happen to know when a second android phone will come out on T-Mobile?
    Matthew Bryant: Have been waiting for over a year and a half
    Ralph A: I have verified that the G2 is already advertised on Android. However, we still do not have news as to when the phone will be available on our network or other networks since Android still had not released it.
    Matthew Bryant: Actualy the G2 (HTC Magic) is already out on Orange I belive. I understand you guys had the exclusive on the G1 and now a european provider got the magic.
    Ralph A: Yes. I’ve also read that on the internet. I’ve seen that it is already available however we cannot have a concrete date as to when the handset will be available.
    Matthew Bryant: What I do not understand is AT&T, Verizon, have a large variety of Smart phones (IPhone, TouchPro/Diamond, Palm Centro, Storm and so on…There are many of us who are jumping at the chance to upgrade to smart phones and data plans (Check TMONEWS)..Why is T-Mobile so behind the curve?
    Matthew Bryant: Is this a common complaint?
    Ralph A: Currently, we have the Sidekick LX 2009. It is one of the latest model actually to hit the market.
    Matthew Bryant: Yes, the Sidekick is an excellent additon to your line up for the under 25 crowd. However it is my understanding that T-Mobile is now targeting the 25-40 year old consumer. Is this correct?
    Ralph A: No. T-Mobile always brings a lot of options to different customers alike. It just so happened that the G2 is still not included on our market. Of course, it may require some new contract between the manufacturer and T-Mobile.
    Matthew Bryant: Are the T-Mobile phone offerings a common complaint?
    Matthew Bryant: If so, what is T-Mobile doing to address these complaints?
    Matthew Bryant: I am trying to make a tuff decision whether to change to another carrier
    Ralph A: I can only assure you that T-Mobile does its best to bring about satisfaction on our products and services. That is why they have the LX. That goes for all the handset that are offered today all over the market. I am sure that they are having plans on it. Getting the patent of the product is also given into considertaion.
    Matthew Bryant: Well I apreciate your time…If you can please forward up the chain that yet another customer (ME) is seriously considering moving to another carrier due to the phone offerings by T-Mobile over the last 3 years. The past is the only indication to the consumer of what will happen in the future..Once again I apreciate your time.
