T-Mobile FINALLY Takes On Verizon AND AT&T With Carly

So what’s the fun in having a great device running a slow network? Well, there is no fun at all according to this new T-Mobile advertisement taking on both Verizon and AT&T. I can’t say how happy I am that T-Mobile is extending the fight beyond AT&T and going after the real competition, Verizon. You won’t find this ad on tv for another week, so feel free to rematch it here a few times.

  • TMO needs to announce a damm superphone already with a dual core.. Everyone else has.. What good is a great network with great speed and no super phone to go with it?

    • Nathan

      Tmo will probably have a dual core sooner than any other carrier.

      optimus 2x, announced weeks ago releasing in Jan. Tegra 2 processor, 480 x 800 pixels 4″ screen, FFC, 8MP camera, 1080p video recording, 8GB internal storage with up to 32 GB addition via SD card, HDMI and DLNA, only unknown is RAM and that will be at least 512MB but i wouldnt be shocked if its more, even if not 512mb is sufficiant. Its a beast and it will be on our network shortly.

      • honestly, until there is a super phone that runs stock android without rooting, no one cares

        and i dont know why your are throwing specs out there that doesnt impress,

        “480 x 800 pixels 4″ screen” okay

        “8GB internal storage with up to 32 GB addition via SD card” why did you even bother mentioning this

        The only thing that’s even worth mentioning is the dual core and 1080p

        The Ui look like a carbon copy of Touchwiz, even tho it’s fast now, imagine how much faster it will be with stock android

        Honestly, i can’t wait for honeycomb for phones, since it suppose to be the Ui overhaul and after seeing what they did with the tablet version and the leaked Music app, i have high hopes

          Well Sammy, Let me spell this out for ya…I’ll make it point for point and try to write in a way so as to be more easily understood by someone with a self implied limited intellect.

          Marvin said he wanted tmobile to announce a dual core superphone, i let him know they already had.

          I listed the specs so he would know them, no other reason, which it seems to me should be fairly obvious. I am not impressed by your grammer.

          That is the resolution…WVGA…again, listed so he would know.

          I bothered mentioning the internal storage because i wanted him to know how much internal storage the phone has…(are you seeing a theme yet?) You might not realize this, but it’s not the same on all phones… I mention the SD card because the phone has one, and once again, i was listing the specs. Even in the “superphone” world it is not a given. Venture to guess why i mention the capacity???

          That is your opinion, others might feel the 1.3MP FFC, or the HDMI port is important enough to mention. I feel that it was all worth mentioning considering I WAS LISTING THE DEVICES SCECIFICATIONS so that a fellow tmobile user could be informed of a device that he might be interested in, and seemed unaware of.

          The rest of your post has nothing to do with the comment you chose to reply to.

          I hope this helps to clear up your confusion as to why i posted what i had.

          This is the part where i would normally call you a “jackass” but since i respect the service that this site provides tmobile users, and its policies I’ll instead refrain.

      I agree with your statement….Verizon attacked the IPhone with its Droid Does Campaign…yet a year later, their carrying the phone…..Shows you the power/influence Verizon has…..TMO can’t afford to be negative towards the IPhone……I truly think TMO could get the it this year…..We’ll see

    I still think that Verizon should be portrayed as a Tony Soprano resembling individual in a red running suit speaking with a thick Brooklyn accent. Your standard stereotype schoolyard bully. I can see the ads running along (should TMo get the iPhone) the lines of a haggard looking iPhone asking the MT4G if he can come play on TMo’s network with VZW & AT&T fighting in the background.

    I want to know more about that $10 data plan!!!

    • sajj

      i called and asked. its a promo deal for new customers and its only 200mb.

      i’m happy with my unlimited (or 5gb) for 20$ a month

      • daniel

        its not necessarily for new customers. You just have to be on a promotion plan (meaning sign a new two year contract at the time which the rateplan changes,) and then you can take advantage of the 10 data. For family time plans they offer :
        A a promotion plan (ie $10 data/ 5$ add a line past the first two)
        B a promotion “4g plan” its only called 4g for naming purposes (which comes with only one data option $20 unlimited.

        Hope this helps

      200mb for 10 dollars, it been on their websites for months, but their hspa networks eat a lot of data. when i had the g2 i had to stop certain apps from running in the background. that 200mb is only good if your not a heavy data user with a non hspa phone.

    I just wish that Tmobile had a better selection of phones. The 3g where I am at in Denver isn’t fast and who knows what 4g would actually be like. Probably just good 3G.

    If I’m going to have issues with a carrier, I might as well have an iPhone…my fiancees CliqXT has been replaced 2x and is horrendous. Had to buy it when a prior phone broke and she is too nice to call and complain, multiple dropped calls per day, etc..taking some of the wedding $ and just putting towards better service and better phones

    I dunno, I don’t like it. I don’t think that T-Mobile should be attacking Verizon. Verizon can come back and attack T in so many different ways and make them look pathetic. T-Mobile’s like a chihuahua barkin’ at a pitbull. I love T-Mobile but c’mon, the majority of people don’t have T-Mobile 4g and where 3g is available, you’re lucky to get a decent speed during “business hours”. During concerts where I live, I’m lucky to be able to send a damn text message. New Years eve at midnight? I was wondering why I wasn’t getting texts… come to find out, my network was down, most likely because it couldn’t handle the traffic.

    Again, I love T-Mobile. But to attack a company that can kick their ass in so many different ways is just asking for trouble.

  • Lotherius

    I use and advocate T-Mobile. I still hate to see them spouting such lies. Most of their network has not yet been upgraded, and yet they’re claiming “Nationwide”… My area finally got 3G in early 2009. However, it has been getting slower and slower by the month. Currently, the best I can get on 3G connect is 486kbps down / 242 kbps up. They have not even rolled out 4G here. Half a megabit, with high latency and frequent drops to EDGE does not equal fun.

    As I said, the 3G is getting worse every time I test it. I live near 3 towers, and no matter how close I am to these towers, I don’t get better speeds. The network is just plain overloaded in many areas like mine.

  • Bobert

    I think that eventually this is going to bite TMobile. What is this about $10 a month for unlimited data?How deceptive is that! Its like t mobile just says whatever and hopes it sticks. For now T mobile can taught the largest 4g network but in a few short months Verizon will destroy t mobile. Maybe tmobile should concentrate more on expanding their dismal coverage instead of wasting our money on taking on Verizon and ATT. The bottom line is the sales numbers that tmobile has put up with their 4g offerings is less than stellar.

    • Jonathan

      @Bobert: I totally agree. I hate the competitor bashing, it’s a big turn off. The 1st “Carly” commercial was cute, now it’s getting tired and lame. If you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. T-Mobile needs to work on expanding their 3G footprint. I live in Kentucky and there are areas on major expressways, Interstates that still after 8 years of being a T-Mobile customer don’t have any service at all. Improve & expand your Android & Windows Phone 7 offerings by giving customers more high end and mid-range phones & throw in some 4.3″ & 4.5″ inch screens in there. I know not everybody wants those sizes but at least give T-Mo customers the option.

  • IfItsNotTmoIts2Slo

    Nowhere does it say unlimited data for $10 a month, it says data plans from $10 a month. Also even if Verizon fully deployed there LTE network tomorrow the iPhone 4 would still be slower than the MyTouch 4g as the iPhone will not even work on LTE.

Yes it may be faster for now but once verizon takes out them 4g phones i bet there going to be faster than any phone t-mobile has . And also verizons 4g will get better service inside buildings as it runs on the 700 mhz.

    Out of all the carriers, T-Mobile probably lies the most. Hey T-Mobile, why does my Nexus One only shows EDGE on it? Suck it, T-Mobile. Nationwide, ya right. As soon as my contract is done, I’m switching carriers.

    If T-Mobile had the iPhone, I’m sure they’ll have a whole lot more complaints about dropped calls and laggy internet than AT&T.

      Is that why AT&T rank lowest in customer satifaction???

    Dear everybody who is complaining about not having 4G:

    Tmobile does not, and has not ever, claim to have nationwide 4G. They are simply saying that out of the carriers on 4G they have the largest. That is a true fact. I’m sorry if this comes off as a jerk, but you have nothing to complain about. Sure you may not have 3G but this is not the forum to complain about it.

    • I Just Get EDGE (2G)

      This is not a forum to correct people. This is not a forum to make comments. This is not a forum.

      You know what’s fact? This. Straight from the commercial you failed to watch.

      “Does one of them have NATIONWIDE 4G like me?”

        I think you are confusing nationwide 4G coverage, as in the ENTIRE country has 4G, and 4G coverage across the nation.

        True they have cities across the nation, which is nationwide, that are 4G but they have never claimed to have FULL nationwide coverage. That is what I am referring to. Coverage across the entire nation. People are complaining that they do not have 3G service so Tmobile should cover the US in 3G first then move on to 4G.

        Again this is not the forum for that. Why are you complaining about 3G in a 4G related post? Can we throw some Galaxy S Froyo updates complaints in there too? Or does anyone want to talk about their Behold II while we are at it…

          You’re original statement is still wrong and that was the point of his post. Now you seem to be changing your statement (because you were original wrong). You’re not qualified to say what this comment section is for. So you’re were original wrong on both your statements.

          Come on dude…what does that sentence mean?

          And how was it wrong? Has T-mobile ever claimed to have had FULL coverage nationwide? No. Plain and simple.

          And it’s just plain logic man. Why on earth would you complain about not having 3G in a 4G related topic? Seriously. You don’t go into Macdonalds and complain about your Whopper. Talk about 3G in another topic and stop complaining.

          You’re statement “Tmobile does not, and has not ever, claim to have nationwide 4G.”
          From the commercial “Does one of them have nationwide 4G like me?”
          From reading that, you were obviously wrong.

          The commercial was talking about network speed and not specifically 4G. So it was about any “G” actually. T-Mobile talked about their supposed 4G speeds while implying AT&T and Verizon either has no 4G and/or they’re speeds are slow (be it 2G, 3G or 4G).

          Your analogy doesn’t really apply either. This site is about T-Mobile. This article is about T-Mobile, AT&T, Verzion, network speeds, iPhone, myTouch4G, coverage and pretty much anything about cellular networks. Your analogy is like me going to T-Mobile and complaining about how my Samsung Fascinate sucks. Yes, I shouldn’t do that but I CAN talk about how T-Mobile’s network sucks on a T-Mobile article touting how their network is good.

      Actually, that’s not a fact. AT&T has updated practically their entire HSPA network to HSPA+, which is what T-Mobile advertises. The only difference is that T-Mobile has HSPA+ devices and AT&T Doesn’t. AT&T has like twice the 3g/HSPA+ coverage of T-Mobile. Once AT&T starts getting their HSPA+ device, I wonder what kind of commercials T-Mobile will make. There’s a reason they only talk about the iPhone in their Ads.

      To be quite frank, AT&T should have gotten at least one HSPA+ handset last year to shut T-Mobile up.

      • TMOTECH

        Having HSPA turned on is fine and dandy but their network only supports up to 7.2 and TMO supports 21+. This is not just a device issue it is an infrastructure issue. ATT has no Ethernet back-haul to support 21+ and they have not turned on the feature in their network. I I was talking to an ATT field tech and he was in the process of installing an additional T-1 at his site. He said it will be a year before they get what we at t-mobile have and that is 50 to 100 Mbps Fiber Optic Ethernet back haul to every cell site in the HSPA+ footprint. ATT would need 60 T-1 at every site to match that. They will be playing catch up for a long time. By the time they have what we have we will be at 42 and moving on to 84 and so on. Even when they launch LTE we will still be running faster than them. ATT is the hare and we are the turtle that caught them taking a nap as we walked on by. Catch us if you can….

          It’s always gratifying to know that someone recognizes the work involved in “simply updating” to 4g speeds. Maybe you just flip a switch and a wave with a higher frequency starts shooting out of the towers, increasing our speeds? Sadly, not. We have to update real physical infrastructure every single time something new like this comes out. That fiber-optic cable he is referring to sells for millions and millions of dollars a reel. I’m OK at this point with not having wireless speeds that are comparable to the speeds put out by land-lines. I’m 25 years old, and I remember connecting to the internet for the first time when I was seven. The fact that we are where we are in that short amount of time gives me a little more patience in waiting for faster speeds.

    iphone is not a “great device”. And Verizon is about to have actual 4g nationwide…

    • but the iphone still isnt one of those 4g devices on verizon and it want even be able to do data while on a phone call.

        Why would anyone ever care about something as terrible and closed as the iPhone when a little something called android is already out there?

    Connection Type: Cell

    Download: 5.15 Mbps
    Upload: 0.60 Mbps
    Ping: 70 ms

    A fast device on a slow network…hmmm that’s me on my mytouch 4g running on edge because tmope can’t even give us 3g at least

  • Trill

    This is pointless but its simple do allow me to translate in one large sum

    PROS

    T-Mobile

    Largest 4G footprint

    Better consistent speeds in HSPA supported areas

    Network is future proof because of the changes they made in 2010 so increasing bandwidth will be easier

    CONS

    The frequency at which there 3G network runs as poor in building penetration (although no carrier map promises coverage its all estimated outdoors)

    There coverage isn’t the best depending where you are like up north and in rural areas

    Some areas are still not on 3g (if your in a rural area or somewhere that is a small town and away from city limits then can’t complain about a specific carrier since they all have places like this so you can switch and let it be that)

    HSPA or HSPA+ is just an advace version of 3g but capable of much higher speeds then anyone realize so the whole 4g thing means nothing what matters us speed and how consistent it is.

    Even if you don’t have the latest phone you need to realize you don’t need that high of a speed for anything on the phone so 4mbps and up is more than enough for anything so stop being ridiculous. You will still benefit from many ways if you live in the supported area such as a consistent speed and lower latency plus the network will sustain even with a large amount of users.

    I could go on about the other carriers if anyone cares
