The last couple of weeks have seen us discuss both on the blog and in our forums the lack of Android and UMA or Wi-Fi calling services and our desire to see it come to Magenta.  We’ve seen our hopes rise with the introduction of a Kineto Wireless service that is capable of bringing UMA to Android as demonstrated on a Samsung Vibrant.  Nothing gives me more hope than the following images that … [read full article]

T-Mobile G2 Will Not Support Tethering At Launch

Have You Been Able To Pre-Order The G2 At Best Buy?

So yesterday, Best Buy (supposedly) started taking down pre-orders for the T-Mobile G2. Oddly enough, word coming through Twitter and through our very own TmoNews Forums say differently. As a matter of fact, to find out for myself, I drove down to my nearest Best Buy store this morning and lo and behold the representative had no clue what I was talking about. So either we’re all going insane, or Best Buy isn’t … [read full article]
