All In For The MyTouch 3G

Today just seems full of MyTouch 3G news, so why not some more?  T-mobile seems to be putting all their chips into the middle when it comes to this poker game of releasing phones (I’m done with the poker references, I promise).  Along with a plethora of accessories, an included warranty, and visual voicemail, T-mobile will be collecting the best that the Android Market has to offer in a nice and tidy “app pack.”  This is where T-mobile will eventually include their own visual voicemail app, but the fun doesn’t stop there.  Tmobile will also include Sherpa, a location based entertainment discovery app that learns your preferences in food, stores, and attractions over time based on your ratings, in this “app pack.”

    T-Mobile has totally dropped the ball. I live in Portland, OR and have been trying to pre-order the my touch since 7:00 this morning and it’s now 5:15. IT CONTINUES TO SAY “UNABLE TO SUBMIT ORDER.” I have refreshed and tried logging off and on at least 30-40 times. I have been on the phone with CSR and all they say is “oh, it looks like the problem has been fixed.” NOT. I even had the CSR try and order the phone for me using their computers with my account info and still a no go. The CSR was all, “I know this will work..I have not seen a problem yet…” A minute later she said, “what, it didn’t work!” Thanks for telling me something I didn’t already know. WT$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anybody having the same problem??

    Correction visual voicemail app does not work with flexpay customers because they cannot bill you accourding 2 the company who made the app. My cousin has a G1 and shevdownloaded the visual voicemail app & it says it does not work with flex pay customers so if you a post pay customer it will work for you!

    Tmobile not at&t, tmobile not sprint, tmobile couldnt even hold verizon fuckin jockstrap virgin mobile has more phones then tmobile COME ON TMOBILE STEP IT UP!!

  • Zapote21

    Wow… What is up with all this negativity??
    its a free country! If you dont like the phone, or Tmobile, then just go to ATT, or Sprint, or somewhere else and get a different phone!
    Its not rocket science!
    I for one, have had Tmobile for about 10 years… I also have the ‘pleasure’ of having ATT for my company provided work cell phone (currently a BB 8320). So i can tell you that ATT’s service is in no way shape or form any better…
    But its very simple… I love TMO, and Android, and my G1…
    If you dont, then go somewhere else… And be happy! LOL

  • santana

    Look, I’m not a hater but I’ve had t-mo for 6 years. I really need a better data phone with UMA ’cause my house is right in a dead zone. The other 3 companies are not dead zones around my house but I stuck it out. Hoping for 3g, uma, better plans…I like T-mobile. I want it to be the best it can be but they don’t have any 3g Blackberries….nor are the ‘google/android’ phones UMA. T-mo give one or the other but not both. I wanted a G1 but it didn’t have UMA so I can actually get service in my home then I tried a t-mo blackberry but no 3g…why pay for a 2 year contract on a device that isn’t 3g? sooo…I’ve making the choice…talked to a guy at work who just switch to sprint for $99 with unlimited data and he’s happy….that’s about equal to T-mo’s deal…so…I’m gunna jump to Sprint and they have 3g…and a much larger network.

    You’ve been good to me T-mobile but I needed more;)

  • Butler

    How can you stay with a cell phone provider that has a DEAD ZONE AT YOUR HOUSE??? That’s flipping ridiculous… And you response is that you are ‘sticking it out’ for uma, better plans, etc… SMH

  • Marco

    Butler,
    I just moved to this housea year and half ago. I had t-mobile before I moved here. It’s like a 200 foot dead zone. If you go 200 feet in any direction you pick up signal. T-mobiles response was to use a UMA phone that is basically voice over IP. So my cell phone (and only certain cell phones have UMA as a ‘band’) would seamlessly switch to my comcast cable cable wirelss from the cell towers as I got to the house. This worked out fine but Look…it’s a 3g world now. The UMA has worked great for me but I want 3g speed away from home (home uses wifi speeds which is better)…so I would need UMA and 3g….OR Sprint and AT&T are not dead at my home so I don’t need UMA (and they don’t have it anyway) and I could then get 3g. Sprint is offering the Everything plan for $99.99 which is about the same as T-mo would charge for Unlimited data, voice and messaging…so I really have no choice.

  • Marco

    NO eric,
    At sprint it’s $99 for voice, DATA and messaging (it’s callled the EVERYTHING plan because it’s everything!) I called corporate and visited and store well I think about it. Sprint is being VERY competitive

    My guess is that no one noticed the new Tmo 3G network coming online by the end of this year (already started to roll it out I believe in New York) and if the map is any indication it will be just as big and vast as any of the other 3G networks.
