T-Mobile FINALLY Takes On Verizon AND AT&T With Carly

So what’s the fun in having a great device running a slow network? Well, there is no fun at all according to this new T-Mobile advertisement taking on both Verizon and AT&T. I can’t say how happy I am that T-Mobile is extending the fight beyond AT&T and going after the real competition, Verizon. You won’t find this ad on tv for another week, so feel free to rematch it here a few times. [read full article]

T-Mobile Releases Next Commercial With Carly And AT&T

T-Mobile has released another commercial in its myTouch4G/4G-network campaign, this time knocking video calling over wifi.  This commercial highlights the limitations imposed by wifi only video chat when one of the users steps outside the wifi zone, or in the case of this commercial, outside the cones. The “glitchy” effect given to the “iPhone4” showcases the need to stay within the wifi range in order to have a call that that doesn’t end up looking … [read full article]

T-Mobile Launches Four New Ads With Dwyane Wade And Charles Barkley

T-Mobile has a set of brand new ads showcasing 4G devices and the 4G speeds they perform on with none other than Charles Barkley and Dwayne Wade.   Directed by Spike Lee himself, these ads will premiere Christmas day during NBA games on both ESPN and ABC.  However, thanks to someone at Dime Magazine, they’ve found their way to YouTube a few days early and are available for viewing pleasure.  Check them out and let … [read full article]

Sprint Claims To Be Only “True” 4G Network, They Also Have Big Pipes

If Sprint was hoping to steer the conversation back in their direction with this, the latest entrance in the “4G” argument, they should have tried harder.  This video, which offers up a mini-tutorial on how Sprint 4G works as well as some digs at the competition, effectively does neither very well.  All I learned from this video is that Sprint apparently has a larger pipe than everyone else. Claiming that “other carriers might claim to have … [read full article]

Verizon Claims Fastest 4G Network; How Should T-Mobile Respond?

Well, what do we have here?  It’s another entry into the “4G” war by big red Verizon herself.  The above image, via Twitter, shows that Verizon is ready to tackle the 4G issue and formally enter the 4G war.  This time the ad hits AT&T where Verizon has enjoyed hitting them in the past, their 3G network.  Anyone remember the “There is a map for that” ad campaign?  While T-Mobile has enjoyed … [read full article]

T-Mobile Takes Yet Another Swipe At AT&T With Online Only Ad

Oh T-Mobile, how we LOVE this new marketing approach, sticking it to AT&T! This commercial which T-Mobile unveiled earlier today via Twitter appears to be an online only “special” but we do recommend pushing this to television networks nationwide immediately. It’s just that good. Not good in the sense that the acting is fabulous or that the point is serious, it’s just funny.  Don’t take my word for it though, watch and enjoy! … [read full article]

Begun, These 4G Wars Have

The Twitter phrase and new moniker “4Gwars” started this week with T-Mobile releasing its marketing and branding as a 4G mobile providerMuch to the ire of Sprint and now AT&T,  this has begun and will likely continue to be the subject of a “little” spat between the carriers.  The thing is, I’m almost 100% positive that was T-Mobile’s intention.  T-Mobile knows the ITU ruling and what really is required for … [read full article]

AT&T Tells T-Mobile “What’s Up” On Facebook, Still Can’t Connect A Call

Seriously, AT&T, seriously?  Going onto the T-Mobile Facebook page and calling them out for their advertisement?  Aside from the obvious humor of this whole thing playing out over Facebook, AT&T really wants to pick a fight.  I mean Sprint had a sense of humor but you’re doing it on Facebook?  Lame, very lame, even more lame than your first attempt at calling them out. AT&T, believe me when I say … [read full article]

Still Not Convinced On The myTouch 4G? myTouch 4G Can…

Still not convinced that the myTouch4G is the right device for you?  Well, myTouch4G can…do whatever you see in this video and T-Mobile sure is hyping the many qualities this Android device has that (cough, cough) other devices seem to lack.  This is somewhat reminiscent of the “Droid does” campaign Verizon Wireless uses to tout the strength of their Droid lineup but, hey, they don’t have a “4G” network behind them!  Watch the video and … [read full article]
