Hello There, My Name Is Brad


Since you’ll be seeing me around here a little bit, I figured it’s only polite to introduce myself, right? So, hello there. My name is Brad. I’m the intern here.

Originally from Delaware (delawhere?), I’ve lived in TN for the past year since marrying my dream gal. I love technology, saving people money, writing, high-fidelity music with good headphones, and running. My smartphones/platforms of choice, in order, are: jailbroken iPhone, Nexus Android devices, stock iPhone, and skinned Android. I speak English, Spanish, and Portuguese. I’m an equal-opportunity technology fan and in a past life I was a metal vocalist, though I much prefer jazz these days. Oh yeah, that’s me and my moms up there; I’m the one with the beard.

I’ll be glad to answer any additional questions in the comments below.

    well you have my respect at least you openly admit the iphone is your main bias as thats your preference unlike some other editors here who won’t reveal their phone of choice.

    • Brad Lopez

      The iPhone is my preference, but I’m definitely not closed-minded. I’m an equal opportunity tech fan.

    HI Brad!!!! Been a TmoNews reader since the start! Welcome aboard! TmoNews…. how about a layout change? LOL =)

    • http://tmonews.com David

      Maybe! I’m thinking about how best to change the layout in the future based on what direction I want the site to go now that I’ll be broaching some MetroPCS news.

    Welcome Brad! We are hungry for tmonews on the weekends. i can’t blame David, but this is an area where you can contribute. As an intern, if you can take on a project to hitch tmonews with an existing forum app for iOs/Android/xx that would be real cool. Look forward to double the tmo news now! Updates on coverage updates will be cool too. You know David does an excellent job, leaking upcoming phones and plans etc. But the refarming project and LTE project and towers covered in each district has been a closely held secret in T-mobile and even their non Engineering employees have no clue. Please crack that nut!

    • http://tmonews.com David

      Haha that’s still my nut to crack! As for the Android app, that’s on my radar and I hope to have some news on it soon!

  • ShoeVixen

    Welcome Brad to TmoNews! Love that we are getting some new insight (not that David wasn’t doing that). Look forward to reading more from you. BTW, love your sense of humor!!

    Brad ur Hott… Anyway I’m thinking of switching to AT&T could be a sad day for tmobile anything u can say to change my mind? I have a factory unlocked iPhone 4S no 3G yet maybe never but coverage map shows only 2g in my area anyhow was thinking of upgrading to a tmobile iphone 5 because its frequencies are compatible with the 1700/hspa or whatever it is but either way there’s only 2g coverage in my area:(

    • http://www.facebook.com/alexis.lanning.94 Alexis Alvarez

      I guess my real question is if tmobile’s coverage in my area will ever be 3G?

      • Brad Lopez

        I don’t have access to their roadmap, so I can’t say. I’d assume it will get better over time, especially with all the spectrum deals they’ve been able to secure lately.

    Brad? Have you been resurrected? I thought you were taken out in Pulp Fiction:
