Oklahoma City Gets 3G

I have long heard from the readers in Oklahoma City asking, “tell us when, please, tell us when.” Thankfully, I can say that day is today, the day you have all been asking for, the day of 3G.

Cliq Reviews Galore

The preorder date is just around the corner, and the first batch of in depth reviews, of the T-Mobile bound Motorola Cliq, are rolling in.  A quick run down would be that Blur looks good, but the battery life in the Cliq is very poor as a product of Blur, if you happen to have a bunch of friends updating their statuses (ironic).  Overall, the phone seems to be fairing, well, so so, with some … [read full article]

Lack Of 3G Network Led To Customer Fleeing

I do not think it is going to shock anyone that T-mobile lost a number of customers due to the lack of a proper 3G network. Deutsche Telekom’s CFO Timotheus Hoettges says, “There is no question that we lost customers because many of our customers couldn’t get 3G. We now have to make sure that we can capitalize on the network in the top 10 cities where we have invested.” The really interesting statement from … [read full article]
