T-Mobile Releases Next Commercial With Carly And AT&T

T-Mobile has released another commercial in its myTouch4G/4G-network campaign, this time knocking video calling over wifi.  This commercial highlights the limitations imposed by wifi only video chat when one of the users steps outside the wifi zone, or in the case of this commercial, outside the cones. The “glitchy” effect given to the “iPhone4” showcases the need to stay within the wifi range in order to have a call that that doesn’t end up looking like the one above. Glad to see T-Mobile releasing a steady stream of these commercials with AT&T as the intended target, but I think it might be time to turn their sights on the real competitor in the field, Verizon since Sprint can’t even define what 4G is these days.

    has anyone actually tried to vid chat over tmobiles “4g” it is exactly what they were just dissing at&t for in the commercial. I love t-mobile, but the coverage is extremely spotty and inconsistent.

      I haven’t had problems with video calling and thats just using a vibrant with the back facing camera.

      It actually worked great across continents. and no, no wifi, just pure 3G even in Phoenix.

      Now if you try to use it on an Interstate outside metro areas, good luck with that.

      What T Mob needs to do, is improve its 4G coverage to all interstates, and adoption will just explode.

  • yo mama!

    Her mouth is so annoying!

    • Farhan

      On the contrary, I find her mouth intoxicating.

      Oh Carly, where be you? I miss you like the morn miss dew.

    video chat seems to do fine around here sprint lover. Sure there is maybe a bump or two on the road here and there but for the most part I let people use our galaxy tab or mytouch 4g and they love it. Apart from that ive gotten Tango on just 3g devices and it works perfectly fine even on those phones as well.

  • bahhh

    my friend has a mytouch 4 and apparently is on america’s largest 4G network but when it comes time to video chat over non-wifi connections, our other friends iphone 4 performs much better when using the tango app. But supposedly T-mobile’s 4G is amazing….. that’s what happens when more than half the network is only elegible to “flexpay” hahaha.

      wow i think you must be mistaken .you the itool device…haha duh..must be flexpay eligible..just like an iprick

    I love the new commercials and think they do a good job pushing the product and makin it fun. BUT I have not had success doing video chat on my Vibrant with 4 different phones. They can never hear me that good at all and it usually says poor connection even though i’m in superb covereage OR on WiFi… I cant wait till we seemlessly video chat in HD via celly.

    I believe it’s in the software. I’ve never had a problem with googletalk or skype with my n900 over 3g. at home, over wireless it’s even smoother….

    I understand the limitations of wifi but I have to tell you that Facetime on wifi is flawless for me. I have a MT4G and even on wifi, the iPod touch is better. I agree with some of the posts that 3G/4G video chat is not ready for primetime yet. Love TMo either way!

      wow..i have mt4g..and works great…the idouche…sucks by the way..i switched and enjoy my buddy..yelling across the way..

        Wow – maybe I have a “settings” issue? I don’t know but the video freezes and the sound cracks up – worse on 3G, wifi is ok. Glad you are happy with the feature. I don’t use it much so it’s no biggie.The phone overall is great.
        Btw, I guess you are not an Apple fan!

    Well, I’d like to see Qik actually work before T-Mobile (and Sprint) start bragging about their 4G video chat services…. Qik is a train wreck, one with bodies strewn in the trees….that you can’t see because the video quality is so poor.

    It’s a nice way to promote the Mytouch 4g. but again this doesn’t persuade me about getting the mytouch4g… saving my upgrade!

    From this video Seems like the iphone maybe not coming to T-Mobile? Unless, they’re trying to say that since the current iphone with AT&T for video calling is running under wifi, the t-mobile version will be running under the mobile network? hmm…

    I love T-mobile and I love picking on AT&T as much as the next guy but this ad leaves out the fact that T-mobile’s network isn’t exactly stellar. I have a hard enough time getting a stable 3G signal and rarely see 4G speeds here in Phoenix…

      Don’t have T-mobile’s awesome service then. Its as simple as that.

    I def think Video chat is not ready yet but by the time WP7 comes out with it….It’ll be set to go so talk to me when WP8 comes and has a Front facing cam device then I’ll consider video chat til then video chat stinks on both Android and IOS it just plain sucks….IMO

    I wish T-Mobile would advertise more than just video-calling.

    • FrankBarrone

      I actually agree with you. Lets be honest: video calling is useless. besides, if I wanted to actually see the idiot I was on the phone with, I would use Skype from a PC. While video calling is somewhat cool, its not the primary reason someone would trade in their iphone to come to T-mobile. Time to find something else to rip on AT&T and crApple for.

      • Tyrone M Jackson

        Well, what do you expect? It’s not like T-Mobile can boast that they keep the phones software up to date. myTouch 3G Slide users were told they’d get 2.2 “soon”, which would allow SD storage of apps and WiFi calling, when the phone was released 7 months ago. So far, T-Mobile has failed miserably. So video calling, which no one cares about, is pretty much all they got to boast about.

  • FrankBarrone

    i would perform a multitude and variety of tasks on Carly’s netherregion. with my tongue. mmmmmm. carly…..

  • Collyxtreme

    Tmobiles new commercials are null and void. Who cares about facetime only working on wifi. You can download the tango, skype, fring, or other app and video chat. Facetime is just whats built in. An android phone cant video chat unless you put on a video chat app. Pretty stupid concept for tmobiles commercial if u ask me.
