Walmat Offering $100 Gift Card With Blackberry Purchases?

This comes courtesy of the boys at Gizmodo who report Walmart as giving away a $100 gift card with the purchase of a shiny new Blackberry purchase. Taking place during the week of November 14th, that’s now for the  Gregorian calendar challenged. Giz reports you can take advantage of this in store and online and while I refuse to enter the Walmart located nearest my house, a little poking around Walmart’s wireless website didn’t find this offer. … [read full article]

fido-3g-data

Well somehow this skipped our radar yesterday but apparently T-Mobile laid out “aggressive” plans to deploy 7.2 Mbps HSPA through all 3G spectrum by year’s end.  Even more noteworthy is T-Mobile’s continued discussion regarding an HSPA+ rollout in 2010 that would be a “fairly broad scale” rollout. T-Mobile continued to emphasize 3G coverage will expand to 200 million pops before the end of 2009 with 240 cities currently covered. This contrasts to the AT&T and … [read full article]

T-Mobile Pricing Guide, No Surprises

The above picture was emailed to me about two days ago and unfortunately, shows no surprises in either price of as-of-yet unannounced handsets. The only real “surprise” is that the rumored $249.99 for the Even More price of the Samsung Behold 2 appears to be $229.99. Based on the price guide, the Behold 2 and Blackberry 9700 both price $449.99 at full retail pricing. Breaking that down leads to a Even More Plus monthly … [read full article]

Samsung Behold 2 Goodness Continues

The Samsung Behold 2 has gotten plenty of prime time love on the blog lately and deservingly so. Samsung’s first outing on T-Mobile will hopefully be met with lots of fanfare and glowing reviews.  While we still await “official” specs, ninja sources have assured me there is very little lag in the interface and we can expect more hands on time later this week. Either way, there is a large gallery after the jump … [read full article]

T-Mobile Says Goodbye to MyFaves

After T-Mobile introduced its new Even More plans, everyone was wondering why in the world T-Mobile had decided to get rid of their MyFaves plans which many, including myself, loved. If you aren’t already familiar with the MyFaves feature, it simply was unlimited calling to any 5 people (landline or mobile) who were labeled as your “Faves”. T-Mobile, in reply to FierceWireless, claimed that it’s “simply time to replace the feature”. T-Mobile states that they are … [read full article]

BlackBerry 9700 Goes Official November 16th

Look, this isn’t really going to surprise anyone, but T-Mobile officially posted the Blackberry 9700 for a November 16th release date today. We’ve had suggestions it might have been pushed back two more days to November 18th having already been pushed back an entire week. As it stands, T-Mobile seems to really want to introduce their very first 3G Blackberry November 16th. Unless of course you’re a business customer, than you get it today, … [read full article]

T-Mobile’s “You Got It, America” Ad

Many of you have already seen the commercial T-Mobile aired almost 2 weeks ago during the “So You Think You Can Dance” show, on October 27th. The commercial briefly introduced T-Mobile’s new Even More plans. And as you may recall, I posted my thoughts on the Motorola Cliq ad, designed by Motorola, in which I rambled on about how important advertising is for a company. I was very impressed with the ad because it was right-to-the-point, … [read full article]

Sprint Is From Mars, T-Mobile Is From Venus

There is little argument T-Mobile didn’t post the kind of third quarter results they would have hoped for. Calling it less than impressive would be too kind, but this MSN Money writer is calling out T-Mobile dead in the water. Frankly, it’s a biased, opinionated writing by someone who appears to have more of a grudge against Magenta rather than an outright argument. I can’t invalidate his points, but I can call them extreme as one … [read full article]
