    Badass! Can’t wait to get this during my lunch break lol

  • Samuel

    lmao @ Chris: I hear ya…im gnna try and get mines in the A.M. Hopefully ;)

  • mel cali

    Upgrades arent showing. Either tmo is still upgrading the system or this is just there way of letting new customers purchase before things might sell out.

    • halo

      i just checked the site here in los angeles at 11:30pm, it is messed up or something, on my account, it had a different phone than i have on my account, and said i didn’t have a unlimited text plan, and i do.

      also said i was not eligible for a upgrade until after 22 months. and when i checked previously i was.

  • Tool

    just ordered mine @ 12 am central time…

  • Richard

    T-Mobile site is always [redacted] up when they offer a new devic…especially for upgraders

  • i don’t understand how Even more plus plan works. It says you buy phone without annual contract, but why you have to add to card some plans when you buy phone ?

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      Even More Plus allows you to break up the cost of a phone over 4 or 20 months. So, to buy the HD2 on an Even More Plus plan, it will cost you about $40.00 and $22.50 a month (yes, I’m estimating because it’s 5:30 AM and the coffee is still brewing… can 10:00 come any, freakin’ sooner!?).

  • Easy

    I’m goin to try to be on it 10am

  • Todd

    hooray for me

    Order Date: 03/23/2010 at 11:36:08 PM im PST

  • NewGuy

    Upgrades will only be available after 10 a.m.

  • Tylormde

    I ordered mine! Super stoked!!! Got to play with one at a TMO store and was really impressed. Now just need some HSPA+ in MN and life is good.

    I guy at my tmo store said upgrades might not be fully be available until 10AM on the website. (I added a line to get mine, needed one anyway.) He also said that they ended their early upgrade program as of the 24th on Smart phones, so unless your 22 months, you don’t get the full discount.

    • Oce

      “He also said that they ended their early upgrade program as of the 24th on Smart phones, so unless your 22 months, you don’t get the full discount.”

      Can anybody verify this?

      • Kevin

        This is correct. Most employees would not have known of this to tell you except within the last couple of days. There is going to be an upgrade tier from 18-22 months though, so the discount may still be close to the full upgrade.

      • Anthony

        What’s the point of TMONEWS if something this important isn’t mentioned? Thanks! :)

    • halo

      oh wow so t-mobile ended their upgrade program on the 23rd so now have to wait the full 22 months!?

      i have 5 more months then to wait, i so wish i would of known i would of got something else, i waited for the hd2 and the rep a couple weeks ago even told me that i was good to go :-( thats not good customer service, but i guess thats the policy…

      • HD2 FAN

        Sad, isn’t it? Now I also have to wait and to November. I got the G1 the first it came out. I kinda wished that I didn’t now, just because I know that I could upgrade to this beautiful device. It’s nothing to be patient, I guess? Right?

    • Inuyasha

      Sorry, but I’m not believing that until I see some proof. It doesn’t make any sense at all that they would do something like that with a major launch happening.

      • ohheelno

        Don’t believe it all you want, but it’s true. I work for T-Mobile, and they informed us all as of yeseterday…which is why you wouldn’t have heard anything until right now. We have 4 different upgrade tiers now, and the closer you get to the 22 months, the more money you’ll save. The tiers are Basic upgrade (0-11 months into contract), Early Upgrade (12-17 months into contract) Early Upgrade Plus (18-21 months into contract) and Full Discount (22 months +). If you were told and the rep notated that you would get the phone for 199.99, then we will still honor it. If you weren’t told and/or nothing is notated stating this, then we will honor the current discount offerings that we are providing.

  • BL@Z3

    The site is currently being upgrade plz be patient if you haven’t seen it up there for you yet

  • damien

    upgraded mine already..at 12:20am eastern time :) Cant wait to get it!

  • Tmo Guy

    I ordered my free HD2 at 11:55pm on 3/23/10.. Can’t wait to get it.. Was seriously thinking of trading it for a Nexus One because I love android so much. But don’t know. What do you guys think?

  • HD2 FAN

    This is a bunch of bull. With the whole upgrade thing, that is. What do I mean? I mean how they (had to have) ended the “early” upgrade on the 24th. COINCIDENCE? The same day as HTC HD2 is available. T-Mobile either sacrifices us for NEW customers, which they aren’t guaranteed, or it’s something else, like this upgrading thingimajigger. It sucks for us loyal customers .. This is just an opinion, though. Don’t take this personal ..

  • jltyler

    Ordered mine off the employees website, sucks I cant just go pick it up in store though…..

    • BL@Z3

      WHat location do you work at?

      • jltyler


  • Merry Christmas!! Everybody.. Hd2’s now available!!

  • tmoreppart 2

    This whole 24 month upgrade is true I’m goijng to extremely pissed I have waited a long time for this phone please tell me you guys are joking please please please

    • Imgonnacry

      Seriously, I was hoping to get the upgrade. If this is true, and that the smart phone deal has expired, then people are going to have a really rude start to their day.

      To add, I’m not still not able to see the upgrade pages in the tmobile website yet. Hope things will be resolved by the time i wake up.

  • Ernie

    I am heading into a TMO store at 10am on the dot!!!

    CANT WAIT!!!!!

  • revbjeff

    My local store opens at 9:30 can’t wait.

  • gargoyle999

    T-Mo website still lists Early Upgrade Plus after 12 months with “NOTE: Smartphones qualify for full discount at this level” still there!


  • DK Brothers

    Still no update info on My T-Mo. Gonna be at the T-Mo store at 9. I hope their systems are up and running.

  • gargoyle999

    I’m heading out at 7am. Store opens at 9am. Hoping I can sit comfortably in my car until 8am then go stand/sit by the door. I don’t need to be 1st but I don’t want to be 10th and end up waiting for too many other people in front of me to ask questions, putz around then finally get it purchased and activated.

    It least it’s not raining here, though it is only 36 degrees…

  • gargoyle999
  • toxtrepla

    The Early upgrade rumor is indeed true… call customer care and find out for yourself. HOWEVER… if you called about it within the past week, and they put a note in your account saying you were eligible for a full discount, you are in the clear.

  • tmoreppart 2

    Hey any tmo reps out there I. Just had one of reps call me stupid and hang up on me so that is what I get for me a 5 year loyal customer and I’m not kidding or lying this is the first time that a customer rep has ever done this to me but thank gosh I got it resolved and I get a special price and I get my two year upgrade eligbility sweet. The lady I just talked to is a doll and I thank her dearly

    • ohheelno

      PLEASE call back and report the rep that did that to you. They can pull the call and if they hear what you’re describing, that rep will not be allowed to do that to another customer. That is unacceptable treatment of ANY customer, especially one that has been here with us for 5 years!

      • Michelle

        I came back from Walmart a couple of hours ago. I went to two of them and they were having problems with the upgrade system. But luckily the 2nd Walmart was able to call it in and I got it.

        I also called CC and was recvd by a rude rep and when I asked for his supervisor he hung up on me. I had explained to him the problem at walmart and he said it was their problem not TMO. I asked could he check to make sure that TMO system was ok and also to make sure it showed that I qualified for an upgrade. He then kept saying it’s not our problem. I promptly asked for a supervisor and then he hung up. But I called back and they sent something to his supervisor to review the call.

        I don’t know what is up today with the TMO reps but I don’t like it. I have been there 5 going 6 years and that was uncalled for. I was so disappointed.

  • tmoreppart 2

    Another thing the upgrade drama is true but only for the HD2 and like on poster said they will honor the. Price if you were told you did qualify and it was notated in the system

    • gargoyle999

      so the “Early Upgrade Plus” program is still active but T-Mobile is not letting people under 22 months use it to get the upgrade price on an HD2? But another “smartphone” like the TP2 they could?

  • Leachpunk

    I just ordered mine, and they said the phone does not qualify under the BOGO deal that has been rumored for the last couple weeks… anyone have any clarification on this?

  • nick

    i dont know who is telling you people about the early upgrade not qualifing but i just called and was told im still eligible for full discount on the hd2 and i last upgraded 16 months ago. i think people are trying to scare you guys. i was on the phone for 10 minutes with her and she pulled everything up and said there is no truth to this “rumour”…1st one at my store, even though i already have mine reserved.

  • Dave

    The website today was showing I was not eligible for an upgrade. However, I called customer care who said its been 25 months since I upgraded and that the website was incorrect. She said I would have no issues getting an upgrade when I go to the store.

  • Mike V.

    Same here, when I called Customer care I was told I was still good for the early upgrade also.

  • rcornelous

    Christmas has arrived!!!!!

  • DavidB

    Just got off the phone with CS. Indeed, the “smartphone to smartphone” full discount with upgrades of 12 months or more on existing contract has ended…BUT…if you are persistent (not ugly, just not meek), the CSR you are speaking with should note your account that you do qualify for the full upgrade pricing (I told him that I just spoke with CS last night and she told me there would be no problem getting the full discount price on the HD2 this morning).

    I would recommend getting their name or ID, so it shows you aren’t pulling their leg. Corporate stores will be able to see these notes, lower tier retailers may not be able to.

  • gargoyle999

    anyplace to buy that extended battery with kickstand over here or do we need to wait for Clove over in England to get them in and then buy it from them?

  • lebron1189

    Am I the only person to finaly receive that email everyone has been talking about? Or did you all get it?

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      I got mine at 9:30 last night…

  • chicago081

    If you are a new T Mobile customer, the $99.99 price over at Wirefly cannot be beat. They have some real nice HD2 accessories on Ebay, I have already purchased a nice leather case for $8.95, got it yesterday in the mail, very nice.

  • chris windsor

    Camped out in front of my tmobile store right now….. its 7:56 and they open at 9

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Hey Everybody!!! I got an email about the HD2 today telling me “The HD2 is now available”. Isn’t life grand? That HD2 Email Crap was a joke.

  • dm

    8am just got to my tmobile store which opens at 9, first one here :)

  • Akulamenuri

    I was going to get this phone until yesterday…I think you all know what im talking about.

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      Enjoy Sprint and their wonderful network! Let us know how that CDMA/LTE simultaneous voice and data work out for ya! Oh, wait… there isn’t any on CDMA/LTE… wow, that sucks.


  • Mike V.

    I just called Cust.Care and they told me the Early upgrade ended, but since I called and was told I was eligible, they had to honor that deal, so I have to pay 99.99, then 33.00 a month for 3 months. I had to order over the phone cuz she said the stores can’t override that kinda thing. So now I wait til Monday to receive the phone….whatever, at least I got the early upgrade deal. What’s a few more days. Haha

  • D. Leonard

    Won’t be getting one after all. Saw this last weekend in a T-mo store and it’s WAY too heavy and large for me. Darn it!!!!

  • chaoscentral

    50 more minutes till I get mine :)

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      shaddup Chaos!!! I have exactly 4 hours, 14 minutes until I can get mine.

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      lol… 4 hours, 13 minutes now… ;-)

  • Oce

    Are there any others waiting there also?

    • Oce

      @dm of course.

  • tmoreppart 2

    Me I’m gonna be the first as well so excited I’m happy that tmo is honoring those who were told they were eliglible for one at full discount

  • Tim

    Forget my lunch break, im going as soon the store opens…. i told my boss in advanced that i will takeing a small break to get the phone…

  • dm

    Newp, only one here waiting..


    The HTC EMO looks nice but that’s where it all ends. Sprint? Ha, what a joke! HD2 here I come baby.

  • Noone1569@gmail.com

    Yeah, I just called CC as well.

    Early upgrade is off.
    No BOGO on HD2

    WTF. I’m canceling my shit today.

  • gargoyle999

    No one else at my store. 7:30 here…90 min to go. I’m waitn for 4 people to get in line or 8:45am. It’s only 33 degrees and don’t feel like freezing.

  • Mobile Nut

    In line at local store which opens at 9:00; six people in line.

  • Mr. Multimedia

    Today at WireFly the price is $99.99 for T-mobile’s HD2 with a 2yr contract….. If you know of a cheaper price, please post it here……..

    • ed

      its amazing, the level of excitement over a device that will be severly outdated in 6 months…..

      • DotNetCoderAZ

        Define *severely* outdated? Let me guess, Microsoft isn’t going to support WinMo 6.5.x anymore? Or, the hardware is sub-par?

        Come on, let’s hear more FUD…

  • dm

    3 people in line now, and tmobile reps have showed up already but haven’t opened doors yet..

  • trife

    Just upgraded via CC with no problems. I’m only 4 months into a new 2-year contract so the best pricing I could get was $399 with a partial upgrade. Figured I don’t mind extending another 4 months so I went for it. It should be here on Friday! Can’t wait!

    Now to sell this 9700…….

    • Deuce017

      I’m 6 months into my new 2-year contract and I’m not seeing any upgrade price on My T-Mobile at all besides the $449.99 no contract price. Should I call up Customer Care about this?

  • Jeff

    I have mine reserved, but I am waiting at the door now. I am the only one here so far. I can see the display through the glass. Four more minutes.

  • nick

    just got off the phone with the 3rd cs and again she has said EARLY UPGRADE HAS NOT BEEN STOPPED AND THE HD2 QUALIFIES. She also told me though that they do know of a problem in the system that is cancelling out the upgrade which is making cs think it has ended. if you have problems at the store, she told me to have the store call them so they can override the system. they are bing told its going to be like this until 1pm est/10am pst.

    anyways, still only one here…1 hour to go!…jealous of you 9am stores!

  • 30014

    This phone is a beast, but I won’t be getting it because it packs winmo and won’t officially get win 7. I know I can get what I want from xda but I wouldn’t root a brand new phone and void the warranty like that. Because you know what would happen, two months after purchasing it there would be a problem with the screen or some other issue. But you would be screwed because you voided your warranty by rooting it.

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      Technically, you don’t “root” a WinMo device. You can install a cooked ROM on it and if you need to send it in for support, you can download and install the original ROM.

  • It totally sucks that this phone is using WinMo 6.5. If this was android I would be purchasing this phone instead of writing this.

    • Hawarr

      The Sense UI hides everything I hate about WinMo.

  • Jeff

    Not available until 1pm. Way to handle a launch T – Mobile.

  • TheMadHatter

    Can I upgrade while being on a family line and not have to get the mandatory data plan?

  • S

    The rumors about early upgrade pricing ending are true.. just got off the phone with customer care and they said was only eligible for a price of $329. When I told him that I was told by multiple other cc reps that I could upgrade to it for $199 he said I was wrong and basically acted like I was lying to him. After I insisted that they did, he then pulled up my account info and told me it indeed WAS noted that i would be able to buy the HD2 for $199…

    But now I’m not sure I even want to. I’ve waited for this phone for a long time, but T-mo’s cc rep was so rude and they’ve been so inconsistent that I feel like just canceling my account and going elsewhere.

    I’ve never been unhappy with their customer service before, I’ve been with them for 6 years, but it seems like they’re definitely going down hill.

    For all those getting the HD2, grats to you, and I really hope you enjoy it, but to me it’s not worth getting stuck with that kind of service for the next 2 years just for a cool phone. If I wanted that I would just go to sprint… =/

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      I can agree that their phone service has been getting worse and worse and the way that TMO handled this launch was purely a joke. However, the question of getting the HD2 or not, well, I look at it this way… if you can get it for the 199.99 price point, go for it! Once you have the phone, the amount of times you will have to deal with CS is going to be far and few in between.

      Also, you might want to consider the Even More Plus plan. It’s no contract and the payment plans for equipment works out well (at least for me).

    • snmclean21

      I have to agree with you on this as well. This is my first time commenting on this website but I read it just about everyday! However, I have also been with T-Mobile for 6 years and I am not too impressed with how they are handling the launch of the HD2. I’ve waited for this phone for a while and still may pick it up but this leaves me with a very different impression of T-Mobile’s customer service.

      • DotNetCoderAZ

        At this point? I could care less about their customer service. I know how much I am going to pay because I am on the Even More Plus plan and in all honesty, I am handy enough when it comes to a mobile device that I only need to contact CS when there is an issue with service or hardware repairs. Aside from those two times, I never need to deal with them and luckily, the reps at my local TMO store rock.

  • Gr8ful1

    I callled up CC, the website for upgrades is finally working. I inquired as to why the prices went from 79.99 for. the Bold 9700 to 264.99. The rep said that it was showing for 79.99 her system and that the HD2 was 149.99, not 309.99 as the upgrades online show. I just ordered my HD2

  • Jay

    Just ordered mine, wooohooo!

  • Jose

    i was the first in line and so i got a free 15 dollar screen protector yay!!! omg this phone is fast like i said before bye bye iphone :-) hahaha. now time for xda to some out with some nice roms.

  • WXman

    F*** Sprint.

  • DavidinJax

    My upgrade price shows $309.99… waa waa waa I won’t get it.

  • sdot00

    1PM?? Not sure who told you that…I’m a TMO employee, and we have already sold 8 of them…who is telling you 1PM?

  • NJchic

    Is every store giving away free screen protectors? I’m the only one at my location in NJ. Can’t wait to say adios to my G1!!!

    • Jose

      idk if everyone is but i asked them because i was the first in line lol

  • Syklone

    First thing the rep says to me, ” you here for the HD2″
    Me, “you damn right!”

  • Tig

    Well… I went to Walmart this morning to buy my phone. Nothing but a huge list of problems. I had to call tmobile 3 times to sort out all my account “problems” and they got everything set with Walmart. So the sales person gets to the final stage and cannot pull up the price information for my phone.

    The HD2 appears not to be in Walmarts systems yet.

    So they took my number and will call me when it’s all set. I waited there for over an hour and am late for work for nothing…

    • Jeff

      I feel your pain. Something very similar happened to me at the T – Mobile store. I called twice last week to make sure I was on the list. Both times, they told me I could come in at 9 and pick it up. So, I take time off from work, go over there, only to find out they can’t sell me one because its not in their system. All of the other stores close by are already sold out. So I have no choice but to wait for the call back and leave work yet again. A little frustrating to say the least. Oh well, I guess all I can do is wait…again.

      • Tig

        They put one aside for me. So once the pricing gets sorted out I know I will have one waiting for me. I just wanted it NOW…

        More waiting…

  • Joe Pa

    LOL at that dumb email we got this morning for registering for info on the HTC HD2.

  • Boris

    Ok, so I am a current customer but I don’t want to upgrade. I am on a family plan and just buy phone whenever I want for full price. I called my store today and they were like no, you can’t buy it outright. WTF type of the retarded thing is that? O well I guess that authorized retailer is getting my money.

  • dm

    Got hold of 2 today at my local store.. One of them I qualified for full upgrade and the other line, was 2 weeks till 12 month is over and the rep manual did it and let me upgrade early!

    • MIKE

      i was told i could upgrade because i have over 12 months with the line.. so how much would i be getting the HTC HD2 ??

      • dm

        I got both for 199 upgrade price.

  • vic

    i got mu hd2 this morning @8:00. dont know why some are having to wait till one o’clock. i was the second person in line and have come home and set up mu device. i hope that the rest of you get your phones, this phone is sexy as hell and i won’t be putting it down today.

  • rigel

    Good luck!

  • YourPalHal

    I picked one up @Walmart unlocked/unsubsizied on Mon. for top dollar; hoping for a bit of a refund if the retail price is $449.

    A couple of observations: Since I purchased unsubsidized no changes were made to my account @t-mobile. I dropped in my sim and found instant 3g goodness on my grandfathered $19/mo “total internet” data plan. No nastygrams about upgrading my data plan as of yet.

    I can’t seem to find any traces of swype on the device. Anybody have a clue here?

  • DK Brothers

    Picked my up this morning. Got to my T-Mobile store @ 170 Broadway in Lower Manhattan at 9 AM. They opened at 9AM and were sold out by 9:30! First impressions: Reception is not as good as my TP2. Keyboard seems a tad off. Gotta check for adjustments.

      *Supposedly* The radio ROM on the HD2 is a little older than we would like. You can flash a new radio ROM (the latest is That should solve any reception issues.

  • Mobile Nut

    Was number 6 in line this morning at the store; they claimed (and charged me) $254.99 for an early upgrade – when I tried to tell her that the upgrade online was less she said that was not possible. But then when I go online, I can’t see any price for an upgrade – the $199 that is shown seems to be the amount for new customers. I have a grandfathered plan which might be the reason for the higher upgrade price.

  • Mike

    How do I purchase the HD2 off of T-Mo’s website without assigning a contract to it? I just want to buy it outright with Bing cashback.

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      I’m not 100% certain about this, but…

      I don’t think you can (yet) get it unsub’d directly from TMO. I think the only way
      you can buy it unsub’d is through Walmart and maybe WireFly or Letstalk.

      If you are a current TMO customer, you could switch your plan over to the Even More Plus plan and buy it that way. But, you wouldn’t get the Bing cashback.

    BTW…my store was supposed to get 25 but only got 20….

  • 4ty-phive

    This phone officially sucks now, due to the fact that Sprint is getting the same exact hardware but with android 2.1. T-Mo is being laughed at

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      Sure, TMO is being laughed at… *sigh* I love all the people that come and report here that seem to be “in the know”.

      Any links or relevant docs that show TMO is being laughed at? Or, maybe some public opinion polls? Anything?

    • Tig

      Yeah because android is sooo much better right?

      No not right..

      and Sprint blows…

      So as of now you officially suck.

  • DavidinJax

    ugh I just called T-Mobile, and informed me I am only eligeble for a partial credit for upgrading, but to receive the full upgrade and only pay $149.00 I have to wait 5 months.

    I paid $400 for my BB when it came out, I can’t imagine paying $309.00 for a phone again, especially when mine works perfectly. I’ll wait the 5 months.

  • i got mine too wow this is definitely worth the money! i was the only one there too great way to promote the phone tmobile!

    • DavidinJax

      Speaking of.. WTF is going on with their marketing.. I have not seen any news of the this phone outside this website. No news of the dell mini netbook, or HSPA thing..

      Really TMo you have good products right now, word of mouth will only go so far, you have to get people interested first.

  • ed

    $300 to upgrade to a phone that will be obselete in 6 months when wp7 comes out…sounds like a great deal to me!!

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      And you have used WP7S personally? You know all about it’s strengths and weaknesses? Oh wait, no, you can’t considering the O/S hasn’t even been released yet!

      Again, more and more FUD.

  • Mike

    I’m just gonna wait. Either I’ll pi8ck this up when the price drops or I’ll pick up a better phone…

    The main issue is that these fast phones are great if you live in a nice big city, but T-Mo’s 3g network is pathetic, and they’re focusing resources on bringing faster speeds to big cities that have been enjoying 3G for a while now? Thanks, T-Mo.

    For the first time ever, I’m really thinking of switching to Verizon. Those coverage map commercials are really starting to be effective to me.

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      I’ll agree about the 3G coverage… Here in Phoenix, which side of the valley you are on dictates your 3G coverage. On the west side, it’s spotty at best. On the east side, I get stellar performance.

      TMO really does need to focus on getting 3G to everyone before the HSPA+ upgrades take place (and this coming from an admitted data junkie).

  • randalltroy

    the Tmo website is showing the nuron,for me, but not the Hd2 for upgrades

  • jay

    I spoke to an top rep, they are working hard to make this available online, over whelming demand on there website put a damper on the launch. Think of it this way I just ordered it and do to the new upgrade offers in 12 months I will be able to upgrade to their HDSPA+ device that makes sprints supersonic cry!! THere is a reason good ol T-MObile is waiting to launch the new device, can you say 1.5Ghz processor? 1080i? 180 million customers covered with real speeds faster then 11mbps? How about a company not planning on charging more for there new speeds? Yeah that is our beloved T!!

  • steve

    posting from bd2 right now

    • coach k

  • gargoyle999

    how do we get wifi tethering on this sucker…

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      As soon as I get mine (in 1 hour, 12 minutes), I’ll post instructions for you.

      • gargoyle999

        I would really appreciate it!


    So I got to the premier store in my area 15 min before they opened & I was 8th in line. By the time the store opened there was another 10 people in line. A few people in front of me did the BOGO & got two.

    The store was allocated 40, so I’m glad I went early….baby is charging now & I’ve done a fresh Sync on my WING and am ready to put it to pasture!!!

    in 12 months, the 2nd gen WPS7 phones will be out or the TMO upgraded version of Sprint’s EVO & I’ll get that :) For the next year, I’m a happy camper!!!

  • gargoyle999

    I wish it had a stylus

  • gargoyle999

    The rep confirmed the upgrade after 12 months with a smartphone is toast..

  • Tig

    Has anyone else been able to buy an upgrade at walmart?

  • beej

    Yup. Just got confirmation that teh smartphone early upgrade plan is gone. F@#$ T-Mobile. This is crap.

  • Kendrix_myrealname

    I want one so bad but I just cant see myself with a winmo device. Granted the screen is immaculate and gorgeous but winmo has way too many issues. Plus I’d miss my Android and the market

  • randalltroy

    so is the upgrade option showing up on Tmo’s website for anybody, or is it just me thats not getting the option


    Surprisingly the t mo store here in Kansas City is going to hold one for me until I get off work. SCORE!!!!!

  • Jeff

  • Infamous Rell

    When I went to the Tmo store this morning at 9, the rep asked me if I talked to CC about upgrading. I told her yes and with the early upgrade program for $199. Then she made it happen. So I don’t know if they stopped the early upgrade, but I was at 17 months and glad to get my HD2

  • steve

    This thing is a dream…I’ll hold on to it til i see what apple has in store in a few months. I feel bad for all the haters….

  • randalltroy

    what in heck is going on with the tmobile.com website, first I was locked out of my acctount,got that fixed, then it tells me I am not upgrade eligible, then it tells me the systems arent availble.I havent even had the chance to try to upgrade without calling cs today.I was on hold for 30 minutes though.Totally annoying

    • Jelc

      They’re probably busy with calls and stuff.

  • draws

    Got two this morning on 2year contracts for only 100 bucks total, I was shocked……

    • KiltDaddy

      Details please?

      • draws

        It was buy one get one free for 199 but the guy boss came along and gave me a 100 instant in store rebate and waived one activation fee also, so 100 bucks plus 10% tax

  • trickystyle

    I ordered mine this morning at 8. I am off contract with T-Mobile but I was eligible to do the instalment plan. Upfront I paid about 30 dollars. I am going to be paying 22.50 for 19 months ontop of my phone bill. I think it is a sweet deal plus I don’t have to renew my contract with T-Mobile. It will be with me in a few days time.

  • Kumbidi

    Guess what !!!! I just got myself a HTC HD 2.., i was on the $79.99 unlimited everything plan, i called first nd talked to a A**hole supervisor he said no way you can get the phone on discount, then i called back and talk to another guy, a good damn friendly guy, he made a solution, he said he will revert back my account to my old plan which was (49.99 unlimited Loyalty Plan) so also add free 3 days Shipping, and the phone only cost me $149.99 with 2 yr contract, i been with Tmo for 6 yrs so they know i wasnt gonna go anyplace so did i.

    so the good news is with out any problem i have one for $149.99 2 yr contract extention, Free shipping Unlimited Text $10 bucks, Unlimited Web for $19.99.

    So heck ya i had a gr8 day,

  • damien

    FYI T-Mobile did change their eligibility on their upgrades.. There are no more full eligible after 12 months, it is now at 18 months.. Their are several differnt teirs of eligibilty with discounts applying to each tier… Call CS or stop by the store to see what you are qualified for

  • Eric

    1. The HTC HD2 is missing multitouch at IE, however works at Opera Browser.
    2. The Opera Browser is unable to fit-to-screen and thus you get both vertical and horizontal scrolls on browser.
    3. No AVI, MP4 streaming or playback
    4. Takes time to awake after auto sleep mode….at least 1 min and thus you can hear the ringtone but cannot see the caller details
    5. It is not pocket phone for sure
    6. 3G at T-Mobile is like Edge
    7. Apps are very slow to respond
    I think it is enough for now…It is sure a dude and i will be returning this back today.

  • Blacksheep427

    I was the first buyer of HD2 in Hagerstown, MD at the Cole rd. store. I had $100 to use to for the payment plan. My total with upgrade discount was $199.99, not including taxes or the $18.00 upgrade fee. I am still playing with all the settings and am not used to touch screens. Regardless, if you’re thinking about this HD2, stop thinking and GET IT!

  • dan

    Funny, I am not having any of the lag problems that are listed here. I do hate the fact that no multitouch in IE, but whatever I am over it. Other than that, my phone is running great, and working great. The only annoyance I had is the email “outlook” syncing my gmail, but because I have patience, figured out how to get push and all contacts to sync over the air so am happy now. Now off to delete “Transformers 2, revenge of Michael Bay”

  • eric

    hd2 hot! all thats left is flash player and phone will be complete! hopefully we will get an air update like g1 did.. hope flash gets here sion!

  • Will

    Just ordered mine this morning :D They offered me a $50.00 discount for some issues I was having with being told different things by a plethora of different customer service personnel, so I said OK! Order my phone already lol. Should be here next week and I can’t wait! I am so ready to make the move (for real this time) from Blackberry and this phone looks like it will be a step in the right direction… though I hope I don’t have any real issues with the virtual keyboard seeing as I have big hands… but I’ll cross that bridge when it comes.

  • bigc17

    The HD2 is a great phone, pfobably the best on t-mobile yet.I Got my HD2 Yesterday because me and my mom stood in line with everyone else to get it and we were fourth to receive it. When we left the store, they still had 2 LEFTand hopefully everyone who wanted it got it.The HD2 is a beautiful display,a speedy processor, grest sound system and speakerphone,a pretty good web browser and lotd more. Sorry wait, no, i’m not sorry but this is better than the iPhone.

  • Phalosopher

    skyfire has flash via the browser..

  • lee

    oh my gosh, i ordered with CC wednesday morning 9am central, they just put it with UPS 2 hours ago, that’s the bad news, good news is i just got a chubby knowing it’s on the way finally…yeehaw!

  • Esoom

    Had mine for a couple of days, and although I am very particular about my phones, I am having no issues with this device, its easily the best TMobile phone ever, strong work TMobile.
