We hate to do it, but….

delayed

After all the good news we have been able to bring our readers recently, we hate to be the bearer of bad news, but to cover everything T-mobile, the good, the bad, and the worst must be reported. First and foremost, for those that hadn’t already noticed, month-to-month contracts have been delayed and a release date has yet to be determined. It could be technical problems, and it could be T-mobile playing the … [read full article]

We’re hearing rumor after rumor that Android has been delayed, and pushed back to 2009. Well TmoNews is jumping into the pool or rumors, calling BS on those other rumors, and putting in our vote of confidence on a presale of the Android phone on September 16th, 2008. This information, coming from a trusted source, prices the Android phone, also known as the G1 (Codename or real name, we’re not sure) at $399. … [read full article]

Is Video Calling right for T-Mobile?

Alright, so users probably wouldn’t be getting video calling on the Wing, but we made easy work of it with Microsoft Paint. With the 3G up in The Big Apple, Sin City and Austin, and many more cities to come, it is time for T-mobile to expand create high speed services for users. Sure we could wonder down the music store way, or maybe offer brief clips of news, but with T-mobile’s promises … [read full article]

After a little downtime, TmoNews is back and badder then ever. If your wondering why we posted a picture of a mad baby…we don’t know either, it is just funny looking! Thanks to our wonderful host GoDaddy, our site was randomly taken down for a little under an hour. In their defense, we were back up within 30 minutes of calling CC. It shouldn’t happen again. In T-mobile related news…keep your eyes open … [read full article]

Sony Ericsson TM506 hitting T-mobile on Sep. 3rd

sebella

A picture is worth a 1000 words. Unless it completely fails to mention HSDPA or aGPS. The Sony Ericsson TM506 will have 1700/2100 MHz UMTS & HSDPA, yet following T-mobile’s current policy of not telling customers about the best features on their phones, T-mobile fails to mention any 3G features on this new Orange and Black beauty (it will come in Green and Black too). No worries, that is why we are here! … [read full article]

bb8220-2

The time has come for those T-mobile Blackberry users that have gotten tired of Curves or Pearls. Our friends at BlackberryNews have presented us with the roadmap of T-Mobile’s 2008 Blackberry plans. Number 1: The Blackberry Kickstart (Pictured above). As the first ever flip-Blackberry, the Kickstart will have to prove itself in the Blackberry community, but with Hotspot@Home (UMA), OS 4.6, and seemingly all the same features as the Pearl 8120, … [read full article]

lasvegassign

As you have read, T-mobile will have 3G in the top 27 markets in the US by October 1st. But why not give a few lucky cities an early present, and flip the switch on 3G as early as…say, August 5th and 6th. That is right you lucky people living in the Las Vegas or Austin markets, as both of these markets will have live 3G in the next 48 hours. With … [read full article]

no-contract1

On August 6th, T-mobile will be introducing two new additions to their current competitive lineup of services. The first is the new parent-friendly Family Allowance, which we talked about yesterday (Yes, it was delayed due to some technical issues). The second new service should bring a lot of excitement to customers that hate 1 or 2 year contracts (or 3 like they have in Canada). Starting August 6th, T-mobile … [read full article]

Thanks to BreatheT-mobile, we (again) have pictures of an awesome-looking unreleased phone. The T-mobile Sidekick 2008, slated to be released on July 30th (AKA Tomorrow) comes in a small box, which helps to emphasize the small size of this new Sidekick. Not only is the size going to be small, Sidekick users will be able to customize their new Sidekick. Users can buy any of these skins for $14.99 each, however if … [read full article]
