    sweet, im very excited for this phone. T-mobile is stepping up to the plate big time with this one

    • ob18

      can’t wait to check it out, just wish it was at least a 4 inch screen.

      • Nokia N900

        That’s what she said.

      • LOL. I hear ya. I miss my 4.3 inch HD2 but hated the software(WINDOWS MOBILE).

        So I got used to it and even the vibrant was too small 4 me. I would love the TAB with calling and the dell streak on tmobiles HSPA+ network.(I know I know, Im dreamin[or maybe hallucinating cuz thats not even possible in dreams lol])

      • mikeyo

        i had the vibrant as well and it felt too big. 3.8″ should be perfect.

    • -10

      • @ NoKIA n900

        who said that!!!!!!!!!

        Im so willing to sacrifice my update for that size on these crazyass specs.

  • Tristan

    Excellent! Just what i’ve been waiting for.

  • jl


  • jl

    Oh Yeah!

  • Cant wait…. sweet! im using samsung vibrant now

  • Galen20K

    Plum is MINE!!

  • geez

    Bah, humbug. Pass

  • 2FR35H

    YES! but what about pre-order then? none for the new mytouch?

    • blah

      EXACTLY!!! Ive never actually WANTED to give my money to a company for anything.. TMO are you listening? I actually think this may be the first real contender to the iPhone. ironicall from TMO.

  • Bigmerf

    you guys rule!

  • Christina

    FINALLY!!! I can’t wait!!! :) so excited!!

  • fatboy97


  • SnakeEyez

    YES! So hyped, let the countdown begin, 8 days and counting.

  • Omg I’ve never been so excited over a phone. Pricing?

    • Kickstar13

      We ‘re working on it :-)

    • fatboy97

      Wild guess… but I’m thinking $199 to start.

      • SnakeEyez

        Im sure it will probably be $199 on a new contract and $500 off contract. What I wanna know is how much will a partial upgrade (if any) be.

      • Kickstar13

        Yeah, $199 w/2 year contract seems to be the new standard.

  • Androidless


    (Kidding, of course. I read the headline.)

  • imgunnaeatu722

    What the hell is the name of this God damn phone?! It seems like it switches names every other post

    • fatboy97

      It’s the myTouch 4G now… I think they did have some product accessories that had the HD name, but everything else has been 4G.

  • tk421

    cool…now hopefully it will be $199 or under.

  • J1

    Official release date.. (check)
    Funds Earmarked/Allocated.. (check)
    Excuse for missing work.. ( ? ) .. lol

    • somebody


  • Allan

    so does anybody know what the internal memory will be

  • HD2/Vibrant/G2 User

    Good bye vibrant

    • PimpStrong

      Its tempting but the vibrant screen and screen size is too good to get rid of.

      What is it that’s convincing you to switch?

      • I left the vibrant for the lagg, errors on Gps(which I use everyday), froyo 2.2 lack meaning for sure it will never get android 3.0. And its too beautiful for such retarded specs and problems

      • mikeyo

        the only nice thing about the vibrant was the screen. not a good enough reason for me to keep the phone.

      • PimpStrong

        Before JI6 the LagFix was perfect. After JI6(Samsung Official) the phone runs perfectly smooth without the fix and GPS is completely fixed. If it had a FFC then I wouldn’t even contemplate replacing it yet. I ain’t mad at y’all though!

      • HD2/Vibrant/G2 USER

        hspa+ ffc, sense, 2.2, should I go on?????

    • Cybersedan

      +1 I know I’ll miss the screen but I need wifi calling, and FFC is icing on the cake, not to mention I love HTC hardware.

      • I love sense. IDK if it comes with it but the samsung vibrant sucked big time without a similar thingy. (sorry i forgot the name of the thingy called sense UI)

    • nooby

      this guy’s too dumb to know how to work his vibrant. that’s why he’s getting rid of it for the mytouch which is HARDLY a step up.

  • Allan

    does anyone know what will be the internal memory?

  • jayy336

    If I were T-Mobile i’d pimp this baby out to the max with advertising. They have gotten 3 good phones over the past 4 months (vibrant, G2, mt4G) and they do little to no promotion for each. That’s a fail on their part.

    • Bimmerz

      Doesn’t Tmo usually use celebrities for the MyTouch line? But if there’s a legal issue over the name (which I hope not *rolls eyes*), then this might explain the lack of push on this phone. IDK – just a guess.

  • im waiting for a 4.3+ inch screen. I would love the TAB with calling. But thats a total loss for me without calling.

    Also I hate WPs.

    Does any one know of phones like the type that I like that IS ANDROID and US version on tmobile? David please help! Ive had a crappy samsung flip phone after losing trust in samsung for not completeing their promises. lol

    • I mean upcoming phones.(not out yet)

      • Yankeefan123

        You could import a Desire HD, but you would only get edge. If you really need the 3G, you are out of luck. I know if a 4.3″ beast came out for T-mobile, I’d be first in line to get it. :)

    • PimpStrong

      Tell me about it man. I’ve been waiting on an EVO type Android ever since I saw the rumored (and never created) Motorola Shadow and its 4.3″ screen with keyboard back in JANUARY!!! Approaching a year later and still no sign of a Tmobile Android beast… There’s always next year I guess.

  • jp

    Nice. The landscape mode is pretty tits. Cant wait.

  • Midori

    I hate being one of those impatient people…! eight more days to go! maybe less if pre-order starts.

  • abel2fresh4u

    Finally thanks david. Thanks god i didnt get to buy the g2 today. Yesssssss.

  • Bimmerz

    eeny, meeny, miny, moe – Black, White or Red to go… Looking forward to seeing this in person! :)

  • Broski

    does anyone know about the t-mobile trade in recycle policy thing?
    how much do they give you for trading in your phones to them?

    • PimpStrong

      I don’t even know if they have one but if they do then forget about it. Craigs it and you’ll get much more $.

    • Bimmerz

      Last time I was in a Tmo store, they had a recycling bin there for old phones, but they don’t give you any money for it. As far as I know, only Radio Shack does this – or like Pimp suggested, sell it – you’ll probably get more.

    • Amorea

      As far as I know, it’s Radio Shack that does it.
      You can find out how much you’ll get for your phone.
      If you have samsung eternity, the piece of junk is less than $15…
      I can’t wait to get away from AT&T.
      They screwed us bad.

      • Amorea

        Sorry bimmer, I didn’t see your post.
        I HATE this mobile internet. We don’t get normal computer internet out here without it costing a fortune.
        My daughter just bit my foot…
        I can’t remember if it was said or not, but you can go on the radioshack website to find out how much.

      • PimpStrong

        I’m sorry to hear that man. I’m sure you bought your phone before the Android boom and its gotta be tough watchin all these new releases.

        And yea this mobile site gets out of wack!

      • Bimmerz

        Np Amorea – Sounds like you had your hands (or should I say foot) full, with your daughter biting you. lol Sorry, but that was funny! :)

    • Yyevo

      My G2 had a prepaid mailer inside to send your old phone in to a recycling center.

      I’ve also found them at Petsmart with the money going to pet charities.

      There is a local electronics store here in OKC that refurbs phones and they gave me $100 for my Cliq and $90 for my MyTouch jack.

      Check around town for places that advertise they buy phones.

  • JM

    I’m still on the fence about this phone and the G2. Let’s see when Noah K. and Bonnie C. have to say – I generally value their opinions.

  • Willie Singleton


  • alex

    now lemme see this phone in full white :D
    getting this phone by the end of november :(/:)
    now we just need internal memory, in full white/red/plum(if so), pricing, and pre-order info if so.

  • Jonathan

    Looks wise, looks like a kids phone. I’ll pass.

  • Robert

    I hope I can sneak out of my parents basement so I can buy this phone. I’m so looking forward to playing Rock Band, Monopoly, and Asphalt 5. I’m so going to lock the KidZone homescreen so no one else can play with my game boy, I mean phone.

  • aLb3Rt

    holding off ’til there’s a permanent root confirmation…… hate having to root again on reboot on my g2. not that it’s hard work…. lol

  • Kris

    Now they’d be ultra smart to launch it with a major discount of some sort. Instead of the $199 that everyone else has.

  • Mr. MN

    I really like the software part of this phone, but I’m not big on the design. I wish I could get that firmware on the G2. I’m sorry folks, this is just my opinion.

  • Hey David or whichever moderator is out there, DO u know if it will have a 4inch screeen?

    • David, Managing Editor

      It has a 3.8 inch screen, that’s been confirmed by T-Mobile themselves.

  • coldnipples

    They shoulda put the front camera on the g2 not the mytouch. Sure its a great phone but I hate its design

  • Jason

    I’m currently sporting a Samsung vibrant and have been more than happy with it, after a Eugene’s AOSP 2.1 rom. I’m not to fond of the 4g’s looks but the hardware is quite dreamy. Since Samsung committed to releasing 2.2 by the end of the year and is currently working on 3.0 for the Vibrant, I’ll be sticking with Samsung for now.

  • Illegal Machine

    I’d still like a full list of dimensions other than the 3.8″ screen. I’m also concerned that there is no mention to the amount of internal memory is on board….

    • thaghost

      its da same situation as the g2. they dnt wanna put da 4gb out there n have ppl complain when there is only 2gb or less available. u’ll be fine tho. it comes preloaded with tons of apps. there will be a lot of room to download apps. and if u need even more apps, u can save move some apps to the sdcard.

  • thaghost

    I FEEL LIKE CRYING!! Its been a long time coming. G1 I LOVE U! but its time to enter into a new love affair. i neva eva thought i would buy a mytouch phone. tmo, htc thanks. TMO NEWS, thanks feeding our appetite for info. Great job guys. I’ll see everyone at the tmo store.

    • PimpStrong

      Say it witcha chest!

      • Jed Clamped

        Kevin Hart?

      • Pimpstrong


  • Does anyone know if this will have voice recognition. Through Bluetooth

  • mikeyo

    i wonder if this screen is wider or if its just taller than say the nexus or G2 screen. id prefer \wider

    • John

      You can’t really tell a difference to be honest, when I played with it I could hardly tell a difference between it and the 3.7″ screen.

  • Manny

    White or black? hmmmmmm

    • PimpStrong

      That’s what’s she’s thinking.

      • Sunny

        LOL never gets old.

  • PimpStrong

    You know what would be awsome is a post showing off all of these November phones. I mean my God there’s a lot coming out. Its like a full line replacement!! And throw the G2 in there for good measure!

  • tipsofme

    This phone is going to run Espresso. T-Mobile’s overlay that causes those uniform icons and theme settings for color and back ground. Espresso is not as clean as Sense but I think its more polished. The phone almost score a 2k in benchmark stock with no lag fix or root and new rom. Those are way better numbers than the evo stock or even the G2. This phone is a beast and you can use it as a wifi hotspot out of the box. I do not see what people are considering when buying this phone. It will be the best android phone out for T-Mobile for the Holiday. True there is no superamoled but if thats all you care about keep the vibrant, im sure it will suit people that only care about a screen just fine. G2 or this depends on if your more of a plane villan tech based guy/gal and mytouch is all about the best of ALL worlds. What cant it do? Brings me the phrase “Knowing a little about a lot will get much furthers than knowing a lot of one thing.” This phone is meant to be an over all pleasure to use and own. Not to brag about out side of a lan party.

  • davcole

    This is the one I want!

  • phonegeek

    omGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG i wonder i just wonder if this is going to be the actual release date i mean i cant waiiiiit for this phone kickstar dude is that the REAAAAAALL release date…..(definite sarcasm) .. i got tired of that question too lol

  • iNeed a new phone BADLY

    okay we all are aware that the HOLIDAY season is coming. I am tryin to treat myself to a new phone as of right now i have a htc hd2 (Huge disappointment literally). Tmobile has came out wit the g2, samsung vibrant (galaxy s), && is now droppend the mytouch 4g, motorala defy (waterproof), && htc hd7…i really dnt know what phone i should get. WHAT DOES ANYONE RECOMMEND AND WHY?

    • mackye

      If you don’t mind not having a physical kb then get the MyTouch4G.

      Why? Best specs on any phone that’s currently out. I mean, 756mb of ram?!?! that’s nuts! Go grab this phone :)

  • Mae Mae

    WHO THAT coming on 11/03/2010 MyTouch 4G with the FFC, WHO THAT…! You can get the NEW T-Mobile TV Apk Android App HERE NOW … Go down to the bottom of post # 2, there you will find the NEW T-Mobile TV Apk Android App, WHO THAT…!

  • paul

  • LBthaGreat

  • LBthaGreat

    Thinking about going with white, not sure i usually a black phone but think ill step out a bit. oh the lets get ready to rumble is because im leaving sprint finally, someone told them they sh*t dont stink.

  • LBthaGreat

    Found a new home since noah is no longer on

  • cirrob

    man… if only this had wp7 on it

  • cham

    this phone better be good. though the specs look ok, im still not sure whether or not this has a dual core processor. But we better be able to disable htc sense.

    • RockTripod


      Sorry for yelling, but seriously…

  • Rami


    Just an FYI, I was at a T Mobile Store in Cincy and actually played around with it. They had some sort of Sense on it, but not sure if it was stock or beautiful Widgets. Anyhow, I did ask about pricing and they said $250 w/2 yr contract..

    Thats all I got.,

    • SpeakNSpell

      It’s a custom version of Sense. T-Mobile worked with HTC to create Sense ‘espresso’ which is what’s on the mytouch 3g slide. It’s basically just like Sense but they have bubble like squares surrounding the apps and a somewhat different look. It’s the only carrier to have their own customized version of android. All other carriers leave it to the manufactures (HTC Sense, Moto blur, Samsung Touchwiz) or leave it stock android.

  • Snoopyalien24

    See dammit I’m still stuck between this and the G2.. I’m iffy on behalf of the z hinge problems but this has no phyisical keyboard and I hate typing outside like that.. Any suggestions guys?

    • LuvMyGreenRobot

      I would either get this one, or just wait until next year to see if they have a phone that you want with a keyboard.

    • lookaturself

      well im pretty certain they will release a mytouch slide 4g some point in 2011 so that may help with the keyboard, and hopefully it will be the same spec wise as the mt4g.

  • bass

    i just got my my touch 46 employee demo, and the speaker is horrible.

  • DjECast

    soooo… looks like no presale on the new mytouch… meh… i’ll go to a store i guess…

    • JackMatt

      I have heard that the presale will start tomorrow.

      • lookaturself

        ive been told by numerous sources in and out of tmo that there is no preorder available for this phone.

  • DjECast

    are we sure about the $250 price tag with contract… that seems a little steep…

  • 2Wheeler

    So if this officially launches in 8 days, why hasn’t TMo listed this on the site saying “COMING SOON”

  • JackMatt

    I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!!

  • Kevin

    I was told to upgrade my phone from the garbage horrible Cliq it was going to cost $1,000.00!!!!! WTF?! I have been a t-mo customer for over a decade and they pull that on me? I am on my 4th CLIQ because it crashes, dies, doesn’t work…

    • JackMatt

      how long ago did you get it?

      And most SmartPhones you can buy outright for about 600.

      • LuvMyGreenRobot

        How the hell are they charging you a grand???

    • RockTripod

      That doesn’t make any sense. Full value for the myTouch would be, at most, $500. There is literally no way you could be charged that much for the myTouch. I’m hoping one of those indirect agents are the ones that fed you that line of BS. Call care or visit a corporate store, and get the straight deal.

  • Luis

    Just came from the tmobile store in my area(NYC) and they had the mytouch 4g in the store and I have to say it is a very stunning phone the ui is a little ugly but overall look and feel is nice very slim, ffc is a amazing I will be upgrading my g2 to that phone I might have to swap sim cards because I still love the keyboard on my g2

  • snoopyalien24

    See dammit I’m still stuck between this and the G2.. I’m iffy on behalf of the z hinge problems but this has no phyisical keyboard and I hate typing outside like that.. Any suggestions guys?

  • Lissa

    I want!

  • Ms. Android

    I don’t know which one to choose…either the red or purple one.

    • John Doe


    • lookaturself

      red all the way!!!!!

  • Manny

    I played with it at my local store today. They had just got it. I thought that it felt really solid in my hand. I also felt that it was very responsive and snappy while I was playing with it. I was trying to decide whether I got this or the Defy. I like the Defy because I like to spend time in the snow and I am pretty hard on my phones ( drop them every once in a while). After playing with the new My Touch I think I might replace my Nexus One with it. I was worried about the amount of rom on the phone, but after playing with it I figure that it has about 1.5gigs. The only other thing that will hold me back from getting it when it launches is that I want to make sure it doesn’t have any sort of anti-root protection like the G2. Overall it seems like a really nice phone.
