Just a quick note as the site undergoes a little maintenance tonight, it’ll be down for about an hour and then back with some small changes to the look! Most importantly, we’re re-implementing Disqus to add a little extra flavor to the comment system! We’ll see … [read full article]

TmoNews Gives You The TmoNews Mobile Edition

Well it’s definitely been a long long time coming for this day as we haven’t seen a TmoNews mobile edition since the sites inception. While all the kinks haven’t been worked out as you can see by the double calendar above, the mobile edition is live and ready for action. I know a lot of Android users, especially those running flash have had a very hard time visiting the site recently so this should eliminate … [read full article]

A little change for TmoNews… comment replies

Just announcing a little change to the way our blog posts operate around here: You can now reply to individual comments within a post. We’ve noticed a decent  amount of people typing out replies to others using an “@username” format at the top of their comments – no longer will that be necessary. Using the new system, each comment will have a “Reply” link below it and replying to that comment will … [read full article]

TmoNews Forums celebrate one year!!

On Saturday, May 9th, the TmoNews Forums turned one year old. Yeah, that means one year of discussion on current phones, upcoming phones, rumored phones, release dates, troubleshooting, services like 3G, data plans, and the future of T-Mobile, as well as crazy off topic chat with people that are into the “Big Magenta” just as much as we are here on the blog. If you haven’t yet registered, [read full article]

Server Change

Tech guy here. We’re in the process of a server move… trying to improve the reliability of the site and all that jazz. Please be patient if you are unable to access certain sections of the site, such as the forums, while we work through this. Please post in the comments if you are having any issues – THANKS!

TmoNews changes for 2009!

It’s a new year, 2009, and we couldn’t resist changing things up a little. What better than a fresh, new design to keep things cool around here? New logo and layout FTW!! So pull out a chair and sit down, take a look around, and watch the paint on the eastern wall – it’s still drying.

My friends…

I just wanted to again apologize as of late for the slowness for which news has hit the blog. I am still on vacation and sadly my much loved laptop, the same laptop that took me 6 weeks to get fixed from a company that shall remain nameless died on me. Completely, absolutely, positively cannot be turned on. I have tried electric shock therapy, mouth to mouth and other means of life … [read full article]

Host change

Just a quick heads up from the TmoNews Tech Guy…. the switch to our new host is nearing completion. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now if you’re reading this, going to tmonews.com now redirects you to an interesting looking URL. Don’t worry! It’s not permanent, and you DON’T have to update your bookmarks or anything crazy like that. It may take a few days for the URL in your address bar to go back to normal, … [read full article]

Servers issues – site stability

Update: Forums are back online. We sincerely apologize for the issues this site has been experiencing recently. The server we are hosted on seems to have been having some problems and even though it apparently was supposed to have been back online 10 minutes ago, it obviously still has some major stability issues. It really troubles us here to keep having us go through periods of unavailability, and we’re going to do whatever we can … [read full article]
