    I’ve been a loyal tmo customer since they were voicestream. And honestly I am with them because of their rate plans. Certainly not the high end devices which we never seem to get. Sure we might get one or two high end (i.e. GSII & GSIII) but for the most part its mid tier at best for us. Was hoping for the 920 then held out hopes for the 820. No dice. The 8X is the highest end WP8 from HTC so that is high end, though not so much so when compared to a high end android device.

    Service where I live in NJ is good with tmo so I don’t complain but I do wish we could get a few more “must have” devices. Just saw an article on CNET about all the new phones AT&T is getting and I was jealous and depressed. They’re getting everything.

    If tmo really wants to move up in terms of subscribers then it really needs to address the lack of quality high end handsets. Saving $$ is great but you also need something to entice folks to come over to tmo. And the Nokia 810 is not it!

      ” Was hoping for the 920 then held out hopes for the 820. No dice.”

      The 810 is exactly the same as the 820 except for a slightly different body style.

      You’re right about the 920 and Tmobile, sure… but I don’t understand how you see the 820 as ‘high end’ and the 810 as not high end when its the same damn thing. The different body style and designation pretty much is a technicality that allows AT&T to hold exclusivity over the ’820′ while letting Nokia release the exact same hardware elsewhere under a different name.

        I didn’t mean the 820 was high end but with no 920 for tmo I was hoping for the 820. But if I do decide to go the WP8 route this time then I would have to really think about the 8X and the Ativ S. Although any Nokia phone would probably be better supported as both htc & sammy have their fingers in the android pie while nokia has all its eggs in the WP basket.

    it a smaller more squared off less bulky 900 faster same battery life updated software and a few extras. the screen on this is better screen then both 710 and 900. Dont Just go by resolution, nokia technology makes it betterapple iphone 5 is still 640 but it steel better then some android screens with higher resolution. Of course it nokia 920 is better because it offers more , but this seems like a pretty good phone

    I wonder if they are going to load it with bloatware that you can’t delete? Like they did on my detestable MyTouch 4G. It’s one of the big reasons I hate that phone worse than anything. They should leave it to me to keep programs and apps that we want to use and not take up memory with Yahoo Mail or stock market apps that I will never touch.

    • TMOTECH

      I hear ya man but I can honestly say that my daughter uses my old MT4G and it still rocks. Never crashes and always works as advertised. I think that is one of the best “quality” handsets we have ever released.

      Will you see some bloatware? Yes. Will it be ‘unistallable’? Not on a Windows Phone.

      Outside of the native apps, any app can be uninstalled from a Windows Phone. You’ll have Tmobile TV, Family Room and some other Tmo stuff on the phone when you get it. But, you just swipe over to the app list, tap and hold, select uninstall and voila! Gone.

    this is a great phone it’s a smaller thiner more squared off 900 same screen size faster processor and updated software and nokia technology . the screen is better then the 710no amoled or 900 amoled due do to updated technology plus it shoots 1080p 8mp the 900 shots 720p 8mp plus the camera faster and has more capabilities. Far as resolution and good screens nokia does good it also amoled clearblack exclusive nokia. The iphone 5 has the resolution and the screen stll looks better then previous gen point proven. true its no 920 with pure motion hd screen or or pureview camera or as built out of one block metal but the 810 not that much different from the 920 other then those few things i just mention plus few software extras.Its gonna be better then 900 because the 900 hundred is first gen the 810 is second gen with many enhancements and way better then the 710

    There’s a lot of talk about this being a disappointment compared to the 920. I’ve got to say that I actually prefer the 810 to the 920 in many regards. I think the removable back is a plus. I like the option of a rugged backing, replacing a damaged backing, or just changing the color. Obviously expandable storage is a big advantage (8GB is just killing me on my 710). The screen size is fine (I actually prefer 4.3″). It’s got a bigger / longer lasting battery. The FFC is improved (although that probably isn’t a very big deal to most).

    Just like the 920, it’s got Gorilla glass (which the 820 does not). Both are elegant phones visually. I haven’t read anything about NFC, but I’m assuming that will be included. Also don’t know about “super sensitive touch” but I’m not even sure that’s a good thing at this point.

    Sure the PureView camera would be a big plus, but honestly if I care that much about the shot I’m probably not going to be using my phone anyway. The only big disappointment to me is the screen resolution / PPI. Of course, I’m over 40 so 800×480 is rapidly becoming a “retina” display for me ;-).

    I think this will be a big hit for T-Mobile.

    T-Mobile executives are on record as saying they absolutely hate the US carrier subsidized phone model, mainly because this cuts into their profits as a carrier and drains short term cash. Basically, that $600 Galaxy S3 still costs $600, it’s just that T-Mobile pays $350 of the cost and effectively tacks that onto your 2 year bill.

    If you do the math, you’ll find that the contract free plan from T-Mobile is a LOT cheaper (more than $600) than their subsidized plan. It gets even cheaper if you go with the $30 Wal mart plan.

    Basically, it’s stupid to buy a carrier-subsidized phone. If you do the math it’s cheaper to buy a full phone ENTIRELY ON CREDIT with a 30% interest rate than it is to pay the carrier subsidy. Even scammy layaway companies give you a better rate.

    T-Mobile actually has the best selection of phones available because T-Mobile can use unlocked HSPA+ international phones. Nobody should really care what “T-Mobile” gets because they shouldn’t be on a 2 year plan.

    whats the point of getting exclusive deals on mid range phones? and yea noterules I save over 840 a year in monthly fees compared to verizon and att sprint is a little closer but still way cheaper than them too.
