Official MyTouch 3G Announcement


I know we have been patiently awaiting the official announcement of the MyTouch 3G, and guess what, its here!  T-mobile has launched a website full of all sorts of fun facts to help launch this device.  The MyTouch 3g will carry a 3.2 inch (480 x 320) touchscreen, WiFi, a 3.2 megapixel camera, exchange support, Android 1.5 (how else would you expect to type?) and of course Tmobile 3G (quadband EDGE for roaming is also in there, in case you were wondering).  The site is also counting down to the July 8th presale date (only an agonizingly long 16 days away).  The posted pictures give a great look at the three color choices that are available (white, merlot and black).  Engadget is also reporting that the preorders will ship in late July, with national availablity in early August.  They are also reporting that it will set you back $199.99 with a two-year contract.  Who else can’t wait for this Android phone?  Show your appreciation in the comments (and try out that nifty reply button while you are at it).

  • Hmmm.. now i’m very comtemplative. I don’t know if I want to get it or not, cause I was set on my Sidekick LX 2009, since I love Sidekicks’ and they work well for my uses/purposes.

  • branon

    Exchange Support? You mean we wont need to purchase third party software???

  • Andrew

    $199 for ALL T-Mobile customers or only those within a certain length left on their contracts?

  • TJ

    Don’t get me wrong, I am pleased… But I thought the camera was 5mp?
    Does Anyone know what the phone will cost without a 2 yr contract? I’m month to month with Tmobile…

  • TJ

    Also re: the plan… Will it be like the G1? I have the unl loyalty (60$/mo) + unl text and web (35$/mo) = 95$/mo… That beats the iphone for sure!

  • cDAWG

    oh and what the hell happen to the 5 mp camera and exchange???

  • frost

    my guess 500 for full price

  • I’ve decided I want one, =D

  • ManoloDF

    What is going on with the UMA/Hotspot@Home ?? This was reported at first when it passed the FCC that it had WiFi with UMA, and now it is not mentioned on the Box Art, or on the myTouch 3G website or any of the recent postings. If they do not have Hotspot@home/UMA on this, I will consider jumping ship, I’ve had enough without a 3g + UMA device.

  • Rhage

    Folks, what am I missing? Did TMO keep us waiting all this while only to release a phone with essentially the same hardware specs as the HTC Magic that was released in Europe months ago?

  • turbotim21

    So pre-sales in 16 days, how about delivery dates? Anyone know? No 5mPix cam, but at least it comes with the 288M of RAM right?

  • Gryde97

    Why oh why!!!??? Why is T-mobile not striking while the iron is hot and selling this phone next week. This is crazy that they are going to begin shipping this phone in LATE JULY. Sure give IPHONE and PALM PRE all the time in the world to steal millions of subscribers who are tired of waiting for T-mobile to get their act together. This is soooo the “NINTENDO” approach to advertising. Let’s come out with a new innovative gadget but lets wait A MONTH AND A HALF to bring it out, so people are really feenin’ for it. HELLO if any T-Mobile CEO’s are paying attention to any of these blogs people are screaming for the phone NOW because they dont want to betray “ANDROID” and move to the Wack IPHONE! I dont want go to the DARKSIDE, I need ANDROID IN MY LIFE!

  • TaTo22


  • terrell

    ahh man about time I need a new phone I got this wack samsung behold an this would be my upgrade

  • freeQwnC

    OMFG finally!!!! I love it. Doesn’t it look a little different then the HTC Magic? idk maybe thats just me.. anyway i hope the internet plan is not required please.. cause thats the only reason i couldnt get a G1! plus i think the G1’s Damm Ugly!


    This is actually the phone T-Mobile should have introduced as their first Android phone instead of the hunk of plastic called the G1. This is still a hunk of plastic…just shinier. I do like the look but I’m not sure it’ll be the phone that draws people end if those specs aren’t up to par. What’s the deal with these small SD cards being sold with them? 4GB? The 16GB iPhone is $199 and that’s built in. And if the other specs are as disappointing I don’t think it’ll be the phone to attract any new customers. Good for current subscribers maybe…not good for growth in new accounts.

    Good luck with that T-Mo.

  • Say-Low


    Ok, so about the pre-sale.. Do we need to speak with T-mo Rep or can we just do it online? Thanks!

    Also, would we be required to buy the data plan or can I just keep my current plan? o.O

    Doesn’t matter what other say.. I know alot of you out there will probably get it too. LOL =P

  • Jay

    Wow I was really looking forward to the 5 megapixel camera but I guess that isn’t going to happen. Don’t get me wrong I think Android is great and I like this way more than the iPhone, but what makes this phone so special when compared to the G1 after the OTA?

  • Pete

    So I have been doing digging and digging not knowing what to believe I’ve had my Motorola Rizr Z3 for 2 years and I was just about to get the Iphone 3GS because I couldn’t wait any longer and not know anything. But it’s here! I can’t wait. I’m sticking with T-Mobile.

  • D

    Merlot! Merlot!

  • DrGUM

    So sorry TMO, this is just WAY too little WAY WAY WAY too late! Looks like my VoiceStream SIM will finally be put to rest. Yup, TMO is losing yet another customer (I’ve been with them since before they even existed) to the iPhone. Way to drop the ball in this one TMO!

  • BubbaJo

    Any thoughts from our insiders around here on whether or not a data plan will be required? I have virtually no need for one with free wifi where I spend most of my time (home and work). I WANT this phone, but will have to go with one of the new unlocked Nokia phones if the mytouch required a data plan just as the G1 does.

  • benjamin

    For some reason I am disappointed. I was expecting something that would blow me away… but I guess I was wrong! time to get me an iphone!

  • Remnique

    Do you need to get the internet for the phone to work and also I am not a big fan of google services (don’t want my info kept on any ones server except my own) so I was wondering is there a way to disable them or better yet uninstall them and still use the phone?

  • Sanjay Kumar

    To all that are saying they are leaving. Don’t go. T-mobile will be releasing more phones in 2010. Some of them may even be 3g of which some may be smartphones. Also, their 3g network will be available to everyone by 2012. Its all about anticipation.

  • monacelli

    I’m sure they will try to require the $25 smart phone plan or whatever. Although I love Android I will have to stick with my iPhone if I can’t use my grandfathered $5.99 tzones plan with it.

  • poochie

    Looks Like Another piece of crap their gonna try to get me to buy for 500 smackaroos.We’ll guess what T-Mobile NO SALE!

  • Ash

    I’m soo glad its finally official!! I just wish I would be able to have it in my hands before I leave for vacation july 29th!!! @ least its official for all of us who waited all this time! Just wish it was sooner!! Ughh

  • Jonessoda87

    Wow, they really dissappointed me on this one. Only thing that will save my service with tmobile will be the TP2. If not then I will have to cross over to the darkside.

  • hv

    yes the data plan will be required. this phone is useless without it so it’s no different than before. and to anyone thinking they can use the wifi without the data plan, it doesn’t work that way. the wifi gives you wireless broadband speeds, but no actual data service. just boosts your data speed. anyone jumping to iphone might want to do a feature check before you do…considering the iphone just got mms capabilities last week, along with stereo bluetooth and landscape keyboard. the g1 (and mytouch) have had that for quite sometime. pair it with open source, FREE (not paid like iphone) Over The Air software updates, and a huge amount of free apps (apps you’d actually want), it hardly seems worth it. so if you want to go buy an inferior product for more money and spend more on your data plan AND have the slowest 3g service on the market AND lame customer service…go ahead. i think i’ll stay.

  • TechJunkie

    I was really hoping for UMA. Therefore, no UMA is a dealbreaker for me. I already have the G1, so, the upgrade value just isn’t there. Very nice design (this is what they should have released in the first place), but they need to step up the game to compete with other companies. This just isn’t cutting it right now.

    Anyone know the deal with the lacking UMA—why would they not want to include this?

  • Amanda

    disappointed there is no 5mp camera. Tmo should reduce the g1 to $99 and sell this one for $149. would definitely bring in more customers.

  • Rcommander

    This is BS Tmo, yet again, doesn’t include its flagship UMA service (the only thing actually unique to Tmobile) in its flagship device! and 3g and uma can’t really create a problem because when UMA works, wi-fi is on, therefore 3G is off! Why do they love axing their own foot is beyond me.

  • Mauro

    $200 for 2 year contract?? FAIL! this new android device is pretty much the same as the G1. I mean no 5 mp camera? I like tmobile and their cs is awesome but seriously their phone selection is a joke. It looks like att will get a new customer this summer but I’m still thinking about the price of the data plan for 2 years. Grrrr any ideas on when the galaxy/i7500 comes out???

  • Tremor

    I love how everyone automatically assumes it is T-mobile’s fault for not releasing the phone right away. Perhaps it was due to HTC’s production schedule. Anyway, I like the look of this phone, but if it doesn’t have a 3.5mm head phone jack, I will probably wait for another phone from T-mobile. They still have a number of Android Phones that are mid/higher end coming out that I know about(i7500/Galaxy, Hero, Moto Morison, Samsung Bigfoot (may not be an android phone), and the Huawei U8230).

  • JonnyBrazil

    i do not know why people are whining! It’s not like this is the only phone T-Mobile is gonna release. There is still the TP2 and a whole bunch of other phones expected to release. WOW no 5mp camera, be happy there even is a camera, sheesh! As for the data plan, so what if it requires one, the iPhone needs a way more expensive data plan anyway. I personally think that the so called iPhone is boring and no different than my iPod Touch, the only difference is that it’s a phone! The Palm Pre doesn’t attract me much either, i have to admit that it is a cool phone but come on i’m not gonna jump of a bridge for it. The people who are threatening to leave, i say “bye bye”. I personally will stick with T-Mobile because i know that things will get better. 3G is expanding so just chill and wait. Signal strength is getting better and also is expanding. The phones, you have to admit, are improving and will improve. Yes my town was like one of the first to get 3G(Elizabeth, NJ) but it WILL get to other areas. If you want to leave go, we are not gonna beg and argue with you to stay, as for the people staying i say “things will get better”, just stick it out.

  • jrperiod

    How does the 2 year commitment work for g1 owners. I ask because as far as I can remember we all had 2 sign up for 2 years to get the G1. So to upgrade we would have to pretty much be given a waiver of some sort.

  • Seth

    $199?!??!?! That’s a freaking joke T-Mobile! I sat on the phone with T-mobile one night talking about the fact that the G1’s hardware is outdated and that they need to have more memory and the guy continually bashed the iPhone for not having a keyboard and telling me how much the iPhone sucks because you have to type on the screen. Now they have a pure touch screen device with a smaller screen than the iPhone. And trying to sell the idea that the G1 has “unlimited” memory.

    TMO has some serious issues with quality of phone selection. I enjoy my service and my rate plan, but $199 for this phone is too much. Until Android supports apps on SD cards or the i7500 comes out (and hopefully is as good as it looks..on paper at least) I am left sitting here hoping that the Apple and AT&T go through an ugly break up.

  • Mac

    Wow>>>>>I cant wait! I’m going to buy two of them! I currently have the G1 but getting this one would be well worth it. Anyone want to buy a G1

  • uknowme…

    I’ll agree, I am disappointed with the camera not being a 5MP camera and no UMA support but besides that… i can live with the other specs.

    i know i said i wouldn’t get this phone but it actually looks pretty sexy to me. might reconsider.


  • timmyjoe42

    No UMA = No BUY.

    I don’t see the deal with the battery life being an issue. UMA doesn’t eat up my Pearl battery. If 3G is a battery hog, it shouldn’t matter when it is on UMA, because then it’s not using the 3G.

    I’m hoping that it’s just that UMA isn’t one of HTC’s strengths, and when the 3G blackberry is introduced it will have UMA.

  • Looks great. T-mobile has done a good job on ramping up the hype for this phone and even the Mytouch name fits I think perfectly within their catalog of phones. This is what the G1 should have been and I believe when the Android 2.0 update hits (Donut) that it will be Google’s march on towards truly rivaling the iPhone for the first time in it’s 5 year life span.

    Great job Tmo! :)


  • Jeff

    Glad its out. Just one step closer to the Samsung I7500 release.

  • Gryde97

    As hard as it is I will continue to be patient T-mobile. I am going to resist my urge to go to the Darkside/Skynet/Treadstone/APPLE, even though I have been trying to decide what phone to purchase for the past 10 months. For the Record I have been with AT&T for like 8 years and I havent been under contract for 3 years so you see why my temptation is growing for this phone. I bought my wife the G1 and the phone runs perfectly fine, in my area the 3G signal through T-mobile is almost as fast as my cable internet connection at home. Android is definitely what I want I just dont want to have to wait to preorder the phone and the WAIT for the actual launch date, THEN WAIT FOR IT TO BE SENT TO ME.

  • Snake

    I think that am going to hang up my 8900 for a little bit. For I now set my eyes on a new toy…I mean phone.

  • droid

    Ok folks, WTF? Seriously. It’s the HTC Magic, same thing, same phone same hardware, a clone, the same. No surprise. It does boast Exchange support which was a farily big detraction on the G1. The specs for this thing have been out for quite some time now, why the surprise? Because a rumor said it would have UMA and a 5MP camera? T-Mobile never said it would have either of those things so you’re getting upset and mad at T-Mobile becuase the “interwebs” said it would have something that the HTC Magic was already confirmed not to have? ROTFGLOL.

    If you can’t wait to buy one there’s this magic little place called e-Bay where you can give it money and it will give you, through the mail, an unlocked HTC Magic. Of course you won’t get Sherpa or the “myTouch 3G” branding or the ability to buy the 2yr warranty or insurance but you could have the same phone, for all intents and purposes, tomorrow. And it’d still be cheaper than the iPhone with no contract ($699 folks, Six Hundred and Ninety Nine dollars).

    As for price there won’t be any love for recently upgraded/renewed peeps. We’re going to have to buy at full price. I just got off the phone with a TMO rep and they don’t know the full price yet. This, in my opinion, is just dumbfounding. “Hey folks we got this cool new phone to buy, but, yeah … uh we don’t know how much it’ll cost you and we’re going to make you wait to give us money and your name to PREorder this thing.”

    These two little things are worthy of complaint/note because there is no basis in logic or reality for these. How does a multi-million dollar, multi-national corporation not know what it’ll cost full price for one of it’s product. It has to know the full price to determine the discounted price! And, why do we have to *wait* to preorder. The definition of preordering is ordering said item before it’s available.

    pre: applied freely as a prefix, with the meanings “prior to,” “in advance of,” “early,” “beforehand,” “before,” “in front of,”

    As for the delay in shipping TMO is tarining its store personel on the phone. Ok it could have been done earlier but at least it’s a semi plausible reason.

    All in all this is what it is, the G1 was really more of a proof of concept, this is the real “first” Android device for TMO. It’s not that much of a step up from the G1 but it wasn’t supposed to be. It’s the mainstream Android device for TMO.

    No use in getting upset that it doesn’t have groundbreaking features as it wasn;t intended to be another “tech savy” phone it’s the “Android for the masses phone.”

    I like it. I’ll buy one because frankly my BlackBerry (8900) pails in comparison. I like TMO coverage and service, I fly for a living, I’m literally back and forth across the country multiple times a day and I’ve never had a problem with TMO coverage/roaming even in Canada (although it is pricey up there). I got my wife a G1 and have been playing with it and the 3G in Phoenix is fast and reliable, so is it in Minneapolis.

    This phone is exaclty what people (reviers) wanted, a G1 with a sleeker form factor and no keyboard and exchange support. Don’t be surprised that TMO delivered exactly that.

  • Can someone explain to me what exactly is better about this phone other than cosmetic changes when compared to the g1? It looks to me like a g1 without a keyboard aka a downgrade. Maybe if they gave this one more internal memory for apps without having to use hacks to get around the small internal app space, it would be worth the upgrade but otherwise I’m happy with my 2week old g1 and will be for a long while… especially if this is tmobiles idea of an “up”grade.

  • TaTo22

    i never seen so much hate and ppl crying bout they are going to leave tmobile wellllllllll bye bye then lets see if u are going to get anything like what u get here go pay alot more money for a cheaper phone and a plan that u gona pay alot more then what u pay now if u gona talk crap go to at&t and talk that shit

  • joe

    Using it now. Web is kinda slow. Doesnt have exchange thou! Its really small compared to the g1!

  • what is with the TRACKBALL??? wtf? sooooo ugly… sorry, this PHONE IS UGLY!!!

  • they really need the trackball???? and all those buttons??? its 2009…. everything should be ON SCREEN!!! UUUUGGGGLLLLLY!!!!!

  • Corey

    @everyone complaining that its taking 6 mos to release the same hardware as in Eu.. Its not the same hardware.. Radio is different due to the tmo us 3g band.. This alone means that it may have gotten bumped for production by htc while HTC made them for the Much Larger European carrier..

  • TRACKBALL = OLD FASHIONED, takes up space & UGLY!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ash

    I’m actually glad it has a trackball…

  • Jonathan

    Can someone tell me the difference between WiFi and UMA? Aren’t they the same? Cuz it looks like this phone will have WiFi.

  • Colin Small

    Ok, so if this is the Android device then what is “Bright Lights” on the 28th? Anyone know? T-Mobile screwed up IMHO. This is their answer to the Pre and iPhone? Or will they be making us customers much much happier and announcing the Samsung Galaxy soon.

  • Mikey

    When I heard about the new release about the new google phone, I couldn’t wait. I’m a phoneaholic. >.> Ever since I got the G1 I was pretty happy. Now i want to get this one actually. I wanted to know if you’re able to trade it in for the new one or something. o_O Or, do you have to straight up pay $500 for the new phone itself…..The whole exterior design looks better than the iphone and the old g1 phone, but the only bad thing about it is the camera. The screen size is pretty nice actually. But I wonder about the battery life on this phone. Is it better than the g1 battery life? I’ve been on edge to conserve my battery on my phone since 3g kills my battery if left alone and all these email coming through… :o I’m hoping that i can exchange it.


    Did you hear the news? The Apple/AT&T have already sold a millions. That’s within one week counting pre-orders and weekend sales. How long did it take the T-Mobile to sell 1 million G1s? Couple months. Any one know how many Palm Pres have been sold yet. I’m sure it’s near the one million mark already.

    T-Mobile continues to display a level of competitive incompetence that is only rivaled by the like of the US auto makers.

    They can’t see that they’re killing themselves because they’re too busy killing themselves.

  • Archboy69

    I don’t understand about these “pre” sale bs. Would buy a car or a computer blindly before testing it???

    Why would I buy a phone before seeing in in person, handling it, seeing if I like the UI…all that stuff before coughing up my hard earn money $200 in this recession time for a piece of equipment I’m stuck with for 2 years?! The pictures looked lovely and all but so did the G1, sort of, kind of…maybe. But when I saw that piece of plastic crap. It would have sucked to have “pre” ordered that phone. What a disappointment. They need to hire better(or pay more)industrial designer that actually can design or at least one that graduated.

    The Google interface is boring, oh hmmm and no multi-touch, it looks dated circa 1980. We are in the 21st century.

    Tmo is cheap, that is why I’m with them for the time being but their phone selection is like going into Russian grocery store. Na Dah.

    Crazy talk.

    I can undertand the iphone since it is basically the same phone, same interface with improvements. I can buy that. Palm took they time and the Pre shows how much thought went into the product and it shows.

  • Very unimpressive…

    I honestly think this one is going to flop. This should have been what the G1 is. I can not justify upgrading my G1 even if I only had to pay $199 (let alone $500)for a phone that has virtually the same specs minus a physical keyboard. Sure it looks a lot better, but they should have actually engineered a new phone instead of being cheap and inferior.

    *Screen size – The Same as the G1 (smaller than iPhone)
    *Cam – the same as the G1
    *Not enough internal memory
    *Does it have a 3.5 headphone jack?
    *no multi-touch (without hacking)
    *spotty 3g coverage
    *nothing to justify the $200 price tag compare to the iPhone or Pre

    I like my G1, though I think it is ugly. I love the android os, though its not mind blowing now that the pre is out. I HATE my coverage. I live just north of Pittsburgh and no 3G, not even in Pittsburgh. Also, no 3G in Youngstown, Ohio WTF? Not only that, but when I’m in some parts of my city, I don’t even get EDGE, its on GPRS for cryin out loud! They just updated the towers in my town with the EDGE about 4 months ago… SERIOUSLY!

    With all that said I do like the plans and they are cheap, but the question I’m asking myself is do I want to keep T-Mobile’s P.O.S. network to save a couple bucks a month???

    There is no way this phone will attract new customers. The price should be $149 and they should work out something for people that purchased the G1 if they want to upgrade early and make it like $199 for current G1 customers to upgrade.
    If I decide to stay with TMO I’ll be waiting for the TP2, but I am kind of leaning toward paying a little extra for a better phone and a better network. I may just give the G1 to my son ride out the contract.

  • Buckshot

    I’ll wait to see what the solution is for the Exchange server integration. In fact, after using the on-screen keyboard of the Storm for six months, I’m way over that and want a real QWERTY keyboard, so I think I’ll sit this phone out entirely and wait for the G2 for the keyboard. Maybe by that time they’ll have all the bugs worked out of Exchange solution and perhaps even have a newer OS shipping!

  • anthony

    Perhaps Im missing something here.TMobile’s home page shows info about the My Touch 3G they make it look as if its some ground breaking devise get real a time clicker with a count down to pre order.Okay I get it but if you have the phone just sell the darn thing ,news flash the Iphone is alresdy out so is the Palm Pre.I am not one for the fore play especially sinse were waiting till august what a joke

  • m3tric

    Well…after seeing the underwhelming specs (NOTHING improved since the Magic came out 3 damn months ago) I can safely say that I am no longer a potential 2-year T-Mo USA customer.

    No 5 MP camera
    No UMA
    Horrible QVGA Video recording

    = No sale

    Sorry T-Mobile, I don’t think I can follow any more false FCC rumors until the Galaxy comes out. Sprint, here I come!

  • Bob

    Another “Google Phone?”


    That is all.

  • mikeeeee

    i love to read all the whiner’s posts here about a product that aint on the street yet and why they aint goin’ to buy it.

    my g-1 gets better daily and i switched sim cards and made it my primary phone the other day, even though, i have no wireless coverage where i live and only have UMA.

    if the mytouch has UMA, sign me up for 2, one for me and one for wifey.

    if not i’ll keep on with the katalyst/g-1 setup until the idiots @tmo give me an android with UMA.

  • coolfx35

    I for one am very excited to get myTouch3G. I’ve been using an unlocked iPhone on T-Mobile for a while now.

    I like T-Mobile’s network where I live and the call quality is excellent. I’ve been testing their 3G network out here in LA and I like what I see. They don’t have 80 million users clogging up the network so at least in my area it’s all mine for the taking. ;-) No complaints here!

    I text and email a lot for my business. Using a virtual keyboard is good for quick stuff, like searches. An actual keyboard is a must. If only the MyTouch had a slide out keyboard. It would be awesome.

    I would have preferred a 3.5 mm jack, but when I stop and think about how many times I’d need it it’s really a moot point. I use my Nano for music and a BT headset for calls while driving.

    Discuss more about this phone at, I usually hangs out there.

  • Sorlaqc924

    as for this phone, i’ll pass. i prefer hard keys over soft keys any day.

    to J-Hop2o6: remember you can upgrade the G1 to Seidio’s battery where you get 2+ days on heavy use.

    to Maximus: as for memory, you pay one way or another. you can pay at&t’s ridiculous monthly rate, or upgrade to a 16GB or 32GB mirco SDHC card.

    to Billy v: the trackball is highly useful for editting text & games

    for the other haters, you refer to Apple’s 3rd generation phone. keep in mind Google hasn’t yet release a G2 yet.

    as for me, i wouldn’t upgrade my phone until there’s one that looked as beautiful as the Huawei U8230. it must also have plenty of internal memory for apps. a superior lense is required. a faster processor would be nice too.

  • Leemor

    I’m confused about the rates. Everyone says that TMO is cheaper than ATT. I compared Sprint, ATT and TMO by going through the order process online (didn’t submit the order) and TMO was the most expensive.

    I get a discount on each through work but it’s about the same discount for each carrier. Results:

    450 minutes
    Unlimited Data
    $56 / month

    Everything data
    450 minutes
    $53 / month

    300 minutes
    Unlimited data
    $65 / month

    What am I missing? Help a brother out.

    THATS IT..

  • Flgirll_99

    I’m not sure what to do?? I’ve been waiting for a new phone to replace my Tmo MDA (yes, I STILL have an MDA. lol!!) but I’m not sure about the Android based phones…it seems too new of a format for me to jump on the bandwagon. I’m so used to Windows Mobile but I like some of the new things I see with Android. Should I switch over to Android or just wait?

  • Dave

    Well this sucks. I just logged into mytmobile to check my upgrade eligibilty and I’m not showing the discounted price on any phones. So I called 611 and since I returned my G1 the “system” doesn’t know how to handle a return and reset my contract. So now I am forced to wait to buy it in the store in August where a store can give me the discount. This is so lame, I was looking forward to pre-ordering on July 8th. But she did tell me that pre-ordering doesn’t mean I would have gotten it any sooner than the stores. So maybe they are doing like Apple did with the latest 3Gs phones.

  • JLA

    I say switch, I have the G1, its a great phone, but too big, this Mytouch is perfect for those that like something smaller, and sleeker, but yet retains all that android goodness, and if you like to customize your phone to a tee, this phone really gives you that ability

    ii have to agree with ash the trackball can be really useful at times

    cant wait for pre-order it

    Hero! HTC?

    Another disappointment. The G1 WOULD HAVE been perfect for me IF it had had UMA. But no UMA, so I went for the BB Curve 8900. That, or I would have had to CONTINUE forgoing reception in my apartment. I went with reception, at the expense of having a phone with a keyboard and screen that are too small for me to use.

    What’s wrong with providing a phone with a full slide out keyboard for typing, a large touch-screen, and UMA?

    Instead, T-Mobile adds a touch screen, but kills the best part of the G1 (it’s keyboard) off, and STILL no UMA.

    HTC Magic is it the same as the My touch 3G whats the difference between both phones is it the same or is it different name.

    More about UMA on the MyTouch:

    One T-Mobile salesperson told me that she doesn’t think the MyTouch has UMA. The next day, a different salesperson told me that the MyTouch definitely has UMA.

    No UMA AND a dumb name??? Hopefully they make a REAL G1 replacement with the real keyboard. The “mTouchmyself” isn’t gunna complete with the Iphone or any Blackberries. It really looks like and is named like a Sidekick on steriods.

  • NO WAY.. yall are nutts.. trackball is ugly! and whats with the other buttons??? no need for all that!….. im going to order one, but its fuggin’ ugly (FUGLY)!!!

    If this had UMA I would already own one. Too bad.

    Two reasons for the pits. #1) After owning the T-Mobile Wing for 2yrs. And exspecting to watch streaming videos with no problems. What I got was freeze-ups during buffering with the highest speed
    available on the wing. Of course no one told me at the time and purchase at TM that there was no tower in the coverage area in Pensacola,FL. But I was told that there coverage area was expandiNG. But after
    $399 spent. Still no tower for Pensacola in 2yrs. #2) I up-dated my contract for a My Touch 3G. I ordered
    it on line, and have it as I speak. You guessed it. After spending $299. Still no tower to accommodate the
    now 3G. I talked with another TM represenative. And received the same old song and dance. Both phones are really great. But not if you live in Pensacola. Is there anyone in Pensacola; or any town, in any state
    with the same situation?
