T-mobile is still allowing for early June for all G1 users to receive their upgrade so if you don’t get it within the next 7 minutes, don’t huff and … [read full article]

Here She Is!

We previewed this already and knew it was coming, but here comes Mrs. Douglas herself! We here at Tmonews would like to congratulate T-mobile for actively encouraging the use of a independent site! Bravo to them for using Billshrink.com, to promote their low cost offerings and showcase T-mobile, who will almost always come out on top when compared to the other national carriers.
