T-Mobile Posts Promo Vid For HSPA+ 42 Network, Have To See It To Believe It

With respect to this video, watch it all the way through once if you can, twice if you dare. T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42 network is most definitely fast, but I would much rather see Carly demo it. Just saying.

    I’m angered by the proposed acquisition, but “ATL Guy” seems like he took it to heart! XD
    Rather then an AT&T Cheerleader, he seems like an angry user that lost his way.
    Seriously, shut up haha the thing is not even final. & it won’t be approved either :)
    Now, be gone.

    I hear you people. Let’s show another commercial with skinny girl Carly holding up a handset and smiling. This little video is drawing hate because it is different ( most of you probably don”t “identify” with a guy like D-Mobile).
    I am glad they put it out there.

  • Toimoi

    GEEZ people…LIGHTEN UP! It’s just a video and a funny one as well. Tmo didn’t sell YOU out, it’s called business. Now if more people had spread the news about Tmo’s Great services & prices…hint..
    then maybe att wouldn’t have bought us. The deal only has about a 20% chance of actually going through, so sit back, relax and enjoy the Many benefits of being Magenta! BTW…point your finger at others ONLY after getting your own act together. Some of you just Love to rant about Anything because you’ve made poor judgements in your life. Shut up already! We have FOUR NEW FLAGSHIP PHONES coming out in the next 6 months…LG g2x, LG Black, HTC Pyramid and the Samsung Galaxy S2…now when did you last hear of ANY carrier with such an incredible (no pun) line-up?
    Decisions, decisions, decisions …!!!!!

    • Jayq330

      Sprint is the only competitor that has & releases phones just as good,btw the G2x has only 512mb ram, so far the only dual core phone with that low ram, most have 1 gig of ram. So that phone isn’t worthy in my eyes.

    Dude’s an independent dealer in Vegas. Prolly doesn’t have the huge marketing budgets that major corporations have. Personally, I thought it was ok for being made by a guy who’s just trying to sell phones. Creative, too. Maybe not the best when it comes to production value, but still. Think you guys can do better? Post it and prove it.

      So what did you learn from that promo?

      • ColdFeet

        What did I learn? Other than there’s a lot of cocky mother f@#kers who read this site? Nothing, really. I was already aware of everything he talked about. But if I wasn’t someone who visited this site, Engadget, Phandroid, and others to keep up on what T-Mobile’s doing, I woulda learned that T-Mobile increased the speed in Vegas. That’s a big deal, especially with Verizon sales guys telling people “Haha, yeah right… T-Mobile doesn’t have 4G! Buy from us”. He also showed a couple apps and games and made an entertaining promo to sell phones. I only watched it once and now that it’s private, I can’t watch it again.

        He was local to Vegas and I think that’s important. My local store has posters up all over the place talking about 4G and that’s a bit misleading. Shady, if you ask me. We barely got our 3rd G in my town and getting a 4th ain’t gonna happen for a while. So what is it that I learn from watching Carly? That T-Mobile is trying to lure more customers with information that doesn’t apply to them locally. “Oh, we have 4G service… just not where you’re going to be using your phone.”

        I dunno, I just think that people are being a little to harsh on this guy (saying he’s a crackhead?) when he’s just trying to run a business selling T-Mobile.

        Just my opinion…

    Here is my take on this whole T-Mo/AT&T merger

    T-Mo is not stupid. In the US, there are too many regulations holding back smaller carriers from really shining and moving toward the top. T-Mo needs spectrum in order to gain customers and signal and the only way they can achieve this is by bidding with carriers for an acquisition. If this deal fails, and I am pretty sure it will by the FCC/DOJ, then T-Mo gains $$$ and spectrum, the things it needs to grow.

    And why would T-Mo put on their homepage that AT&T will acquire T-Mo and provide information to customers on a deal that has yet to be heard by the FCC? T-Mo knows that if enough customers really cared, then we would fight to keep T-Mo by expressing our concern over this takeover to the powers that be.

    In any case, T-Mo wins in this deal but I truly believe that this deal will fall through in the end. The wireless market is dominated by two huge companies, AT&T and VZW, and Sprint and T-Mo cannot compete on coverage and spectrum as those two can. Yes smaller carriers can roam on other towers but it costs a ton of money to do so and especially right now with data roaming rates. Unfortunately, the only way to try and grow is by doing what T-Mo is doing right now.

      exactly that’s why I love this deal tired of people hating it. deal may not look good right now but its the best option for our future.

      • galaxylover

        Schippma’s whole point that I guess you missed is that we are SUPPOSED to hate on this deal, so that it will fall through when we complain. Get it?

        • http://twitter.com/Ac3of2pade2 Ac3of2pade2

          but nothing we do will make any determination on it failing especially when at&t is lobbying and I happy that they are :D

        • Ithitmeallatonce

          I’m sorry but you my friend…are retarded. ANYONE who thinks this isn’t the worst possible scenario is ignorant, plain and simple.

          If you think it’s good to be taken over by AT&T (and pay anywhere from 20-30 dollars more A MONTH), then go to AT&T now. It makes NO sense to me. Literally, if this deal ‘excites’ you in the least, just go now, AT&T is a company and would love to have you

        Whats the best option for the future? Paying more for wireless service with several caps? AT&T is a company FILLED with asterisks. Trust me, I work in an ATT call center, i see what goes on back stage and this company makes me sick. Internal systems are a mess.

  • CactusCat

    When I try to watch the video, I get a “this video is private” message. Anyone else having this problem?

      Same problem here. Looks like T-Mo didn’t want us watching that..

    To the people who think that T-Mobile is so brilliant and KNOW that the deal will not go through and will get 3 billion and spectrum: you are either naive or stupid. Granted, the deal MIGHT not get approved as is, but it will get done. Do you really think that AT&T is that stupid???? They have back up plans and know that they will have to give up customers. THEY HAVE LAWYERS AND LOBBYISTS TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN., If T-Mobile is that smart. they would not be #4 and be in the process of being dumped. DT wants to recoup their investment and stick to Europe. T-Mobile would be in last place until Sprint finally lost enough customers to fall below T-Mobile.KEEP WISHING THAT IT WILL FALL THROUGH…..they will just sell to another company.

    • MIKEEEEE

      i’ve had a cellphone since 1990, been through 4 carriers.

      anytime i changed the service got better. anytime i didn’t change the service got better.

      dewey, are you a stockholder or just a customer? if the latter, why should you care who’s logo is on your phone as long it’s from the company who gives you the best service.

      when t-mo is no more, i’ll be with the company who gives me the best service.

      at the current offer ATT is going to pay 4700 bucks for me and my 4 lines to stay with them and give me new phones and better service or i’ll leave.

      BTW; vodafone is going to offer them cash in euros in the near future anyway.

      • qwerty

        “why should you care who’s logo is on your phone as long it’s from the company who gives you the best service”

        Some people care about other factors such as whether their company has demonstrated, time and time again, their total disdain for freedom of information, customer privacy, public interest, and general civic responsibility.

        • MIKEEEEE

          i still have 2 unlocked nokia 3650′s that cannot be triangulated, pre 2005 i also own an att nokia 6600 that i used on t-mobile.

          att prepaid simcards will work fine with them and they take wonderful pictures and videos and pair up nice with bluetooth keyboards with the nokia drivers you can get from nokia germany..

          go on ebay and buy some pre 2005 phones just in case they’re cheap

          or take your tinfoil hat off and get real.

        • Querty

          I wonder how this has anything to do with what I posed…

      • Dewey Cox

        My response was aimed towards the people who think that DT entered into this deal KNOWING that it will be declined. Very naive. Also, I have had 3 carriers in the last several years but every time I switched it was MY DECISION . It was not forced upon me. I don’t care whose name is on my phone. I care about my choices.

        • MIKEEEEE

          @dewey, if the deal had a timeframe of 3 months instead of a year, i’d be in a quandary right now as i live in a very remote area and have to have a signal booster no matter who my cell carrier is.

          if the deal was a cash deal instead of ‘i’ll pay you some now and some later’ i’d be concerned.

          ATT made a low ball bid and they know it, t-mo accepted a low ball bid and they know it.

          it’s like ebay but, with billions of dollars at stake.

          if sprint/clearwire or verizon/vodafone can come up with a sweeter offer or if the feds modify the deal who knows?

          ATT screwed up bigtime by selling way too many bandwidth hogging devices in urban areas and they’re still doing it.

          don’t think that DT or t-mo USA is the victim here, they’re playing a shrewd game of international corporate chicken here and it’s going to be fun watching it unfold.

          i’ll give you a hint, keep an eye on the dollar/euro exchange rate until the deal closes.

        • Dewey Cox

          I hope so. I just hope that if DT and TMO benefit from this……and do something with it other than maintain.

        • MIKEEEEE

          @dewey, last night i went to the ATT store near me. ECCCCH! looked at a motorola ATRIX as it is a close thing to my DEFY. i like my defy better.

          t-mo’s current customer base chose t-mo over ATT already, think they’re goin’ to stick around after?

          let’s see what the sub numbers are in 3 months, ATT might gracefully back out if the sub numbers drop.

          like i said, the fat lady aint even got her dress on let alone make up.

        • Dewey Cox

          The sub base may drop but is that what they are after? It seems that they want spectrum and will take whatever customers they can get along with it..I agree that AT&T phones are lacking but to the average consumer ( non tech site readers) we all carry the same thing.
          You are also correct that most current customers chose us over AT&T but one fact is not being addressed…their is a significant number of current customers that are with TMO because they could not get credit with the other 3.That is why the churn is so high

        • Dewey Cox

          “there”

        • Anonymous

          Im with t-mo because they have the cheapest plans and in my area (los angeles) the clearest calls.
          Now Im not sure what to do. Im thinking of going with Sprint, they are cheaper than ATT and Verizon. I dont care about a iphone, I dont care that a cellphone can download at 15mb a second.
          I have a Nexus S right now and everything is perfect. Ill just wait until the Nexus S 4G is on Sprint and go over to them.

    • Schippma

      Both DT and AT&T are not stupid. Both are taking a risk, as all businesses do. However, I think this is DT’s last cry for help. If the FCC denies this mega merger, then T-Mo has a chance since they will be gaining valuable AWS spectrum and money needed to build out their network. However, if the FCC approves the deal, then AT&T will gain the spectrum it needs to deploy its LTE network faster than what they can today.

      If T-Mo keeps doing the same old thing, it will get the same old results. This is a big risk for T-Mo but what else would you have them do if you want faster service, better coverage, better phones?

      • Dewey Cox

        I agree. My point was that I do not think that DT entered into this to benefit from the deal being declined. They want TMO USA gone. I do not blame them for selling us off. They had numerous chances in the past to give us faster and better service along with better phones. What they did was invest $$$$ in gimmicks such as @Home, My Faves, FlexPay, and the like, which are all gone now. When they had the chance to make a difference, they failed. The Sidekick was the iPhone before the iPhone. Every young celebrity was shown with a Sidekick. It was the “cool” phone to own.What did they do????? gave us LRG and Tony Hawk editions of the same phone. FAIL. When they launched the very first Android phone….no one other than existing customers knew about it. If you ask the non tech person who launched Android I bet most would say Verizon because of the Droid commercials.I remember when the Shadow was going to be the flagship device for the company.
        I really think that DT put so much pressure on Dotson that forced him into making quick fixes to appease them. He put kept putting band aids on a gunshot wound and we simply bled to death.

        • Schippma

          I also agree with you. I think that DT is trying to get out of the US market. It is a tough arena to gain customers with all of the regulations. And T-Mo should have advertised long ago with the G1, their @ Home service, the Sidekick, etc. but they failed. I think T-Mo tried to fix things when it was too late. Why did they get rid of myFaves which made them famous and other carriers have today? Why did they get rid of the Sidekick and now are bringing it back on a new platform? Why did they not advertise their @ Home service more and offer it to any customer, regardless if they had T-Mobile service or not?

          I guess these are all questions that don’t matter anymore. I will miss the good of T-Mobile, CS, pricing, and grandfathered plans.

        • MIKEEEEE

          @dewey, i still have an @home line, i still have myfaves, i use wifi calling.

          gimmicks, yes but, i’m a ten year customer.

          how many poster/pundits here were emerging from diapers when i signed up with voicestream?

      Go crawl back under the rock you came from. Go away, you stink.

      • ColdFeet

        Why? Because Dewey’s opinion differs from yours? Make a reasonable argument as to why this merger should or shouldn’t go through and we’ll discuss it like reasonable people. Till then, keep your fingers off the keyboard unless you can actually bring something to the table. Ya know, something other than “you stink”.

    Nice attempt, t-mobile is going all out & trying to get as many new contacts/$ money$ before they go bye bye.i won’t be buying any phone until I know what’s the deal. “right now is a great time to buy a t-mobile phone” oh yeah? You sure about that buddy! Your basically giving t-mobile allot of $money$ before they leave you hanging out to dry with at&’s grubby, greedy cheap low budget network & plans. Say hell no to these new phones, the G2x, HTC Flyer & all the other goods stuff cause when start takes over you’ll have a phone that’ll need wifi to get decent speeds.

    • ThinkAboutItWillYa

      Dude, you really think that a NAME CHANGE is going to affect physical towers and things that Tmobile has built? Get with it, if you get good service with tmobile its not going to change when and IF at&t takes over. And yeah it is a good time to buy a Tmobile phone, you can get a new PHONE at a DISCOUNT if you do a contract yeah just keep reading, if the merger goes through you can leave with out any kind of cancelation fee or anything because AT&T is not Tmobile who you signed the contract with. Idiot.
