(Updated: Cancelled?) T-Mobile Getting Ready For November 20th Holiday Event

Update: We’re getting word now both in the comments and from our sources that the event has been cancelled. No reason or explanation was given only that it has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for another day. We’ll update as we hear more!

We’re back with a follow up on our article from yesterday and we’ve got more exclusive details on the upcoming November 20th “Holiday Event”. According to our ninjas, T-Mobile Retail stores are starting to receive packages with “tools” for the November 20th event. As pictured below, these tools include, reservation cards, appointment reminder cards, and rebate stickers. From the looks of it, Magenta seems to be expecting lots of customers to take advantage of this “Holiday Event”. Additionally, our ninja tells us that apparently, this stuff is top secret and that employees were directed to put the package  in a safe. We’re still diggin’ for more details, so stay tuned!

    hmmm now I will wait for more news on this before getting a phone.

    • aLb3Rt

      sounds like an iphone launch hehehehe what else would need an appointment?! lol
      happy with my g2 though

      • ob18

        That would be interesting but somehow I’d find that something very hard to not leak and something they’d want a pre-sale for so they aren’t having riots at the stores.

  • 16309A

    I want to get the MyTouch 4G, but will wait till the 20th. Can’t they just announce what this will be so I know if I have to wait or not!!

    • Carl

      Agreed, I’m in the same boat.

    • ob18

      I agree

    • crazyfunky

      I just saw the first post last night right after ordering the Mytouch 4g. DOOOP! I suspect the mytouch won’t be in the sale as it is brand new. But if it is I’ll try to return then buy again!! Fingers crossed!

  • I had been holding off getting a G2 until root was achieved, sounds like I should wait another 10 days.

  • alex

    an iphone w/ aws would give tmo a power house handset line up…

  • Jessica

    It’s probably just another Family Plan/Phone package event. I can’t wait for them to have “special events” for us non-breeders (j/k)

    • CharlotteB

      Umm, lol in real life. TY

    • Vibrant Addict

      Haha so true.

  • redman12

    More leaks! go go go!

  • Kiki

    So, this looks to be new activation or add a line only? Ugh, seriously hope this will somehow include individual line customers/upgrades.

    • XfooYen

      The line tickets say “# lines add/upgrade” so I think upgrades will be included.

  • Kiki

    Agree with Jessica, us non-breeders like pretty/fancy new phones too, ha!

  • Saintory

    Could be that new multi-mode Qualcomm chip, the MDM9200 (I think). Imagine: 1 chip to handle all of your radio frequencies and protocols instead of one chip for each. It’d really solve the CDMA iPhone issue. Heck, it’d resolve the carrier issue.

  • j brown

    it’s just going too be FREE PHONES with mail in rebates again.. but I hope they throw in the mt4g phone s in the special.

  • jms

    I’m pretty positive it is not an iphone, if it were it wouldv’e been announced a long time ago…..think about it verizon has already announced that they are getting the iphone and apple immediately had them selling wifi ipads as a part of the deal…..plus why would tmobile be attacking apple in the new adds if it were getting the iphone…..just sayin’

    • Chatter

      slight problem – Verizon has NOT announced that they are getting the iPhone. There is a rumor but no official announcement. Also, TMo is not attacking Apple in its ads, they are attacking the AT&T network…..just sayin’

        • David, Managing Editor

          That article is so damn awful its not even funny. No announcement was of the kind, “just saying,” nothing. Whoever wrote that should be ashamed and then tarred and feathered.

        • bcj

          That’s not a Verizon announcement. It’s an attempt by a company to capitalize on the swirl.

    • Jamie

      They aren’t attacking Apple, it’s AT&T they are stabbing at. My favorite is the last ad, the online exclusive, which has iPhone trying to escape from AT&T’s restrictive service. My local TMO store is also selling the iPhone cables, I’ve never thought of the Colorado Springs area as being a high profile for carriers, but TMO did just release 4G here. Giving the excuse that they are making iAccessories available in their stores for the customers using an unlocked device seems silly. The phone has been out since 2007..why take over three years to make accessories available?

      • myn15

        ding!! ding!! ding!!!
        that’s right!!
        “the online exclusive, which has iPhone trying to escape from AT&T’s restrictive service. ”
        so i think iphone is really going to tmo.the ad speaks by itself! i think that ad is the clue for iphone coming to tmobile!

        • 2FR35H

          That’s the same raging clue I got from that ad.

  • NEXUS S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hamster

    I would have guessed Nexus Two if it hadn’t been delayed…

  • Sloth

    If this were an iPhone, I doubt they’d have a “handset” field…or a rebate.


  • RWWackoStu

    If this does not include upgrades/current customers without adding a line, it’s not a big deal.

    • XfooYen

      The line tickets say “# lines add/upgrade” so I think upgrades will be included.

  • AnxiousWaiter

    It should be more then that. Its conspicous in the events timing. Nov 20th is the week oof black friday. The kit with rebate stickers, appointment cards and reservation cards all sounds to me like a plan to launch the IPhone4 or to have a crazy black friday sale!!!! Either way Im waiting with my upgrade for the DVP!!!

    • AcaciaStrain

      That’s a somewhat good point. Never thought about that. They could be announcing it for pre-order for black friday or a TBA.

      Really unlikely but not out of the realm of reality now that the micro-sims and iphone cables are still somewhat of a mystery.

    • Petey

      I don’t think it would be too crazy if it’s not the iPhone release on T-Mobile…

  • NEXUS S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    NEXUS K !!………..!…..!……………………….

  • Jflaco

    I still stick to yesturdays comment, I do think its the iphone4 but i dont think its gunna be call iphone4 I think its gunna be called iphone 4g. Tmobile’s last online commercial has the iphone trying to escape from at&t and their taughting at&t for their network speeds for not being able to allow the iphone to video chat over the network!! IDK but I think I might be right on this one!!

  • John

    Make Sure to rsvp…lol

  • C-FU

    Hope it leaks before my 14 days are up….(18th).

    • lucky for me my 14days are up after the 20th, but i’ll be watching the site closely

    • Lbdagreat1

      Same here

  • kingkong

    I hope they have a deal on the new bold

  • Kiki

    Thanks for pointing out the upgrade info XfooYen, I missed that! This, combined with the new data options, will finally get me to go for it!

  • Lbdagreat1

    Cant wait! Mt4g I might have to sell u with all your accessories for $250 if its a iphone only because im a mac guy sorry.

    • dan


  • PharmD

    Well I spoke to a tmobile rep and they said it wasn’t a device… and that it was only a sale. *sad face*

    • PharmD

      Excuse this comment

  • Wilma Flintstone

    MT4G Harry Potter Edition.

    • Vibrant Addict

      I would be on that in a second. As soon as it’d be announced I’d sell my Vibrant IMMEDIATELY. haha

    • 2FR35H

      What would this Harry Potter Edition do more than the original?

  • PharmD

    Well I just spoke to a rep at the store and they looked around and whispered to me “it’s a big sale, but no device is included.” Oh how I wish there was a device included. She did say that they were being really secretive about it though. *sad face*

    • Wilma Flintstone

      And folks, you can blame this TMO rep for spilling the beans and getting the November 20th event cancelled.

      Not really, but I know somebody thought it. :)

  • John Doe

    It’s the Fathers Day promo all over again. All Phones free after MIR. Expect loooong lines.

  • AcaciaStrain

    Here is a little notice for you all.

    NO T-mobile sales rep knows what it is. Whatever they tell you is just them guessing. As a rep myself I have no idea.

    I’m expecting it to be just another fathers day sales like event and most of my coworkers agree.

    My Store Manager has no idea what it is yet either. He thinks it might be the iPhone.

    Only the higher ups, market managers and division managers, know exactly what it is. When it gets announced then reps will know.

    • Tmo.rep

      man you need to step up your networking skills with the higher ups… I love being in the know lol

      • David, Managing Editor

        I thought that was my job!

  • Robert

    If you want an iphone just get one and unlock it Lmfao.

    • Jaime

      How? There is no unlock method for iOS 4.1?

      • 2006mr

        ummm yes it is (i have one) but one have to make sure it has the same baseline for unlock/jailbreak

  • corpG

    Its a promotional rate plan, not a phone sale; I’m not sure what the plan is, but I know it’s not huge phone sale like fathers day.

  • I would guess this is a Hardcore sales push for WP7 and Android. I feel like the next 90 Dys will change things for Magenta. The plot thickens.

    Stay thirsty my friends!

  • Mark

    Maybe I should of waited to get my G2, especially if this is another “all phones free day”…although I did get it for only $99 from Costco (after $50 rebate). Still would of been nice to get it for free…Love the phone though.

  • Dommy

    Announcement coming friday :) ill keep you guys posted when I find out.

    • Lbdagreat1

      This friday?

      • dommy

        Yes this friday. its what my store manager told me. when i find out, ill let you know. maybe ill find out tomorrow. who knows.. maybe i can get him to talk, cause he deff knows from our market manager.

        • David, Managing Editor

          Well if you find out you should email me, david@tmonews.com!

        • dommy

          will do david

  • Mr LMAO

    I think it is the Iphone4, hince the micro sim that everyone thought it was for the tablet but the tablet uses a regular sim. The Iphone has been out for how long???? And t-mo JUST now thinks hmmmmm lets star selling the power cord????? Cover Up!!!!

    • dcb

      I am a retail store manager and we should know what it is the first part of next week from what understand…..I would highly doubt or even completely rule out that is is the I phone…..none of the stores in my market got the micro sim cards and we would already be seeing shipment notifications for the device if it was launching next Saturday….the IPhone may very well come to us but don’t expect it on the 20th people.

      • Dick Richards

        Uh…maybe they will be announcing a future sale or release date?? I don’t think anybody would be expecting it out by next week.

  • Fixxer56

    Dommy, please do keep us updated

  • BlackBerryXVII

    Well I work for T-Mobile and find some things to be very random and strange. The selling of the iPod cord, sure I can understand at first but then the microSim cards just do not make sense. Now here is one theory.

    From what i understand, the Samsung Galaxy Tab has to versions. From what i understand, the Euro version takes a microSim and the U.S. version takes the regular sim card. It is very very possible that the microSim cards were just shipped by mistake along with the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

    I have not heard or seen pictures of anyone with a stack of microSim cards. I have seen a picture of just one and that could go hand and hand.

    Also lets consider those who want to use the iPhone4 with T-Mobile. They will need a microSim card, T-Mobile wants to be able to supply those therefor stores will get shipped microSim cards for unlocked iPhone

  • jake

    Really hoping you could take advantage of whatever is this will be, even if your not eligible for full upgrade. I don’t know if I can last 10 more months with mt3g. Especially with the whole froyo bs.

    • Evan

      I’m with you man, the 2.2 update is great, but you should see this device (mt3g) run Angry Birds…… its horrible. That goes for a lot of things on this phone.

  • jrcaddi

    Its the iphone duh look at the sign.

  • techy2011

    I was it was a big iPhone release at Tmo, but as we all know, we would have heard more by now. Tmo last sale was suppose to be killer new low rate plans. But as we all know, they were nothing to get excited about.

  • Kikstar, will u get or would u get the iphone if it came out?

  • I would get the iphone over any phone except the nexus one.

    • Wilma Flintstone

      Nuh uh, you’d definitely get the Razor over any phone period. You know it’s the truth. Admit it.

  • jaythe01

    Ladies and gentlemen introducing the tmobile iphone! My boss let it slip that its a device. Each store is receiving a “limited” amount and hence tickets to be given out.

    Personally i had already knew something was fishy with micro sim gate, but its convenient that engineers were already putting the phone thru trials a few months back.

    • David, Managing Editor

      It’s not the iPhone.

      • jaythe01

        What then David? I thought it was a promo aka fathers day pt2 but the fact i just attended a meeting where even the trainers were all smug about very soon cryptic msgs about a big device. Plus my MM let it slip that its a device….micro sims not belonging to the Tab. What are they for then? I know the 3GS was on the table but the 4????

        • David, Managing Editor

          Employees have been asked to not take off that day correct? You think the iPhone would have T-Mobile staffing up for just a single day? The iPhone would lead to them going full staff the entire day for weeks. There is no prep time, no big launch announcement coming from Apple as of yet who need I remind you would be the one doing the launch announcement, NOT T-Mobile. It’s not the iPhone.

        • George

          Not to mention that a 3G iPhone would require a different radio from the one used for AT&T. We have seen enough in the past couple of years to know that if Foxconn suddenly began to change parts in the construction of the iPhone that the story would be across the Pacific in a matter of hours.

          This isn’t a simple changeout for Apple, it calls for revised engineering. It wouldn’t surprise me if Apple brought out a new iPhone for next June and T-mobile was a carrier for it, with the iPhone using T-mo AWS 3G bands, but for right now it is highly improbable that such an event would have been carried out in absolute secret–not in the age of Twitter and cellphone cameras.

  • jrcaddi

    Its the iphone why would they have the cables and the micro sims?

    • jaythe01

      Agree worst kept secret. The micro sims were a dead giveaway…..

      • David, Managing Editor

        No they weren’t, enough iPhone talk, its not coming.

      • Salem bot

        Micro sims are for unlocked devices, T-mobile has been providing service to unlocked iphones since the first one. And now customers won’t need to cut their sim forthe iphone4. Also, the iphone sim is in the phone when you take it out of the box. There would be no need to get extra sent to the store early.

    • David, Managing Editor

      It’s not the iPhone, nope, not the iPhone.

  • jrcaddi

    Why do yall ignore all the signs? When they all point at the same thing .I believe were getting the iphone or shall i say i want the iphone ,because no other phone can compare to it just my personal opinion.

    • David, Managing Editor

      We aren’t getting the iPhone, at least not in 10 days…maybe sometime next year but its not what this sale is about.

      • jaythe01

        I hope we are right/wrong. Im android all the way but in the prosperity of T-Mobile this will be the death bed of att shit service and sprints weak network.

      • Trollface.jpg

        I think we have a better chance of a leprechaun riding in on a unicorn than we do of getting the iPhone in 10 days. David, please stop responding to these posts. They’re clearly trolling. Thank you señor.

    • Lbdagreat1

      David, calm down humble yourself and get ready for the “IPHONE BABY ” sorry had to do it.

  • Rc86

    Why hasn’t tmobile issued any statement about these micro sims, like they did the iphone cords? Unless some douche from the UK took a snapshot of the microsims they use over there to cause a stir over here!!

  • jrcaddi

    Iphone yay iphone yay iphone yay

  • Landon

    I promise…ITS NOT THE IPHONE. lets just think about this for a moment…why would tmo pull out all the stops with the new MyTouch4G ads. Granted, they bash AT&T and NOT the Iphone, but Tmo wouldn’t sink all that cash into the Mytouch4G just to have it trumped by the iphone a week later. (I would still pick the Mytouch over any iphone) but most ppl would return the Mytouch for an Iphone…and thats not what Tmo wants. Its something like the “fathers day sale” all over again (with the addition of upgrades for existing customers). Its a great move to get a jump on the other three carriers just before the holiday season kicks off. way to go magenta!!!

    • Wilma Flintstone

      They did with the G2.

  • that dude

    manger told me the event was canceled

  • yes iphone, iphone, iphone, iphone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • David, Managing Editor

      Stop using so many exclamation marks, I’ve asked you a number of times to work your comments differently, not to insult people and to act like you care that someone else does something for you with site. Final warning.

      • wtf how am i insulting people?

        y am i the only one u pick at?

        • Keine

          Cause You are a shitposter. If you post something thats a bit more intelligent, and stop using “!” then we would just ignore you.

        • Keine

          Cause you suck at posting. PERIOD. If you would stop the “!” and spamming your way in. Then that would be fine. But if you are just going to shoot down everything that was already establish and show hostility, then we are going to have a problem.

        • when u say period u stop. not keep going and going.

        • David, Managing Editor

          Dude, what is your malfunction?

  • DatGuy

    The November 20th event has been cancelled . . . It was to be another Father’s Day type event

    • no it hasn’t. ur probably the same person,”that dude”

      • David, Managing Editor

        Yes, we’re actually hearing it has been.

    • Petey

      I guess the iPhone isn’t ready to launch yet since it’s too short notice… hopefully soon!

  • ADZ

    Everyone be aware that stores will be staffed extremely well the 24th of november..reason? I was told that it will be an UNBELEIVABLE sale to help out for black-friday losses. Will keep you guys posted if anything is heard from there.

    • what does that mean?

      can u explain a lil bit better?

    • No need for that

      It’s probably cancelled cus people keep leaking info online! Pretty sad

      • jigsaw918

        i was thinking the same thing….haha. still i dont believe it’s REALLY cancelled though, why would T-Mobile give up thousands of sales because some “rumors” were leaked online? that’s stupid.

      • bigpapi

        please give me a WOW feature of the Iphone….you could put an apple log on a bag of monkey crap and the sad apple followers would buy it

    • RockTripod

      Unless they’ve changed things since Tuesday, our all-hands day was the 20th, not the 24th. Doesn’t seem wise to schedule a massive sale for a weekday…

  • Bimmerz

    Bummer that the event has been canceled. I was going to guess that it was an event for the tab – buy the Samsung Galaxy tab and get the Vibrant free.

  • FarWestTexas

    5!n7 is kinda funny.
    If the iPhone was coming to T-Mobile, why wouldn’t the Wall St Journal be all over this? Their journalists can dig up anything.

  • jason

    We don’t have much info either. Here’s a fact, the Tab came out today in certain locations. Other locations say “TBD” To me its obvoius it will be the Tab. There hasnt been enough iPhone rumors to be the iPhone.

    • remixfa

      not every location is getting the tab at the moment. Its only going to the busier stores and the high data stores. the rumor was its was an “everything free” day like father’s day. but now its cancelled, so does it matter? I was frikking exited about it too.. now… sad face :(

    • yourboyfriendthinksimhot

      TBD means “To Be Distributed” or “To be Discussed”
      TBD does NOT mean Tablet LOL as nice as that might seem… it doesn’t….

      JUST so u know…



  • Hamster

    Hm, sucks that it was canceled (or postponed rather?).

    I was thinking a bit about things it could be other than big sale. If it were a device, I think it’s probably supposed to be the Nexus Two. However, another possibility could be the Palm Pre 2, I think. It will be launching in Europe very soon…

    • j

      palm is dead for one and t-mobile hasn’t carried a plam device in 5 years or so

      • Hamster

        I see no reason why that prevents them from doing so now…

        And Palm is certainly not dead, having just come under the arm of HP.

        • yourboyfriendthinksimhot

          PALM is dead AND buried at T-Mobile THANK the cellphone gods for that bc OMG PALM SUCKS :)

  • Lbdagreat1

    Noooo! Why must you lead us into temptation and toy with our emotions. Only one thing comes to mind ” SILLY TMO CUSTOMERS IPHONE ARE FOR KIDS” LOL

  • myn15

    so they didn’t fix the serious problems yet on the hardware on nexus S huh.. OR they hasn’t closed the deal with steve jobs?

  • ADZ

    All that was told to me was that something “big” was happening that day..VERY long shifts, all managers will be present in the store and NOT ONE PERSON OFF that whole day, extremely weird to say the least. Understood it’s the day before the thanksgiving and two before black friday, but I HIGHLY doubt they’d do this for a “small” event. Like i said, it might be a way to get in gear for the holidays and get people excited for the the direction Tmo is heading. Regardless, it should be big, hopefully it will be something we’d all be proud of and thank our beloved magenta for.

  • Scott

    It’s really tough to get excited about products with associated multi-year contracts. What they need is a major upgrade of the network. Iphone would be no great excitement for me. I think they are okay and maybe I would consider one, but with the updates, the G2 does everything I want. Wifi calling is the “killer app” for T-Mobile. Android is not as slick as UMA phones, but it is works.

    The Samsung Tab is a disappointment to me. I bought a couple iPads instead.

    In the past, I think I remember T-mobile having a sale on smart phones. That might be okay.

    If something could be kept secret, I think it is possible with the iPhone. AT&T is GSM and though the highspeed data frequencies differ, it is possible that is addressable in firmware with the iPhone 4 chip set. The supplier orders would not necessarily tip off something like this.

    Whatever it is, I am holding on to my money and I will not extend my contracts another two years to get the discount.

    • Trollface.jpg

      The iPhone 4 will NOT run on TMo’s 3G. Frequencies are not firmware unlockable.

  • Tmoled

    Lay off 5!N7 just because he doesn’t agree with you. It could possibly be the iphone, how can you just tell someone that they’re not entitled to an opinion, not very professional. The postponment could be to let the tab, mt4g and new windows phone get some sales before they introduce something that takes sales away feom them. Tmobile just stacked their line up in the past week. Whether it’s a sales event or new device, I think it’s too soon.

  • Kusgan

    One item on the ticket is “memory card”. There is no such thing in an Iphone. Sorry to spoil the excitement. my wife wanted an Iphone (even if I thought it is not the best phone). My hope for the Iphone sinks here.

  • Tmo rep at south shepherd houston

    The iPhone cable cords is the same as the galaxy tab’s charger… I seriously seriously doubt it will be the iPhone. I would even say definatly not the iPhone. Plus we haven’t recieved any micro sim cards.. Just saying…

    • 2FR35H

      You haven’t but there is documented proof of t-mobile micro sim cards that are completely undeniable. Also it makes no sense for the galaxy tab charger to be labeled for the iPhone/iPod… Just saying.

    • Ali

      This is absolutely incorrect. In fact, you couldn’t be more incorrect. There is a reason it’s called proprietary, they are both proprietary. Just because they look the same doesn’t mean they are the same and you should know this having dealt with two separate types of mini usb cables with the mytouch and other mini usb phones.

  • GeeToo

    I am sure a lot of folks will disagree with me, but I feel that the iPhone is not that great of a phone. Screen after screen of icons. Ironic because OS X has widgets built in. Their UI really needs updated to allow the user to customize the screens to include more than just apps. Sure there are tons of apps, but Android is evolving at such an alarming rate, I really think Apple has lost its edge. Think about it for a second.

    1) Your only choice of hardware involves the amount of storage
    2) They have not fixed the problem with their antenna
    3) No hope of ever having a physical keyboard
    4) Swype is not available
    5) Their phone consists of a tiny metal band surrounded by GLASS! Nobody wants to drop their phone, but it happens. They are not durable.
    6) No Widgets!
    7) Very difficult to replace the battery

    1) Huge app store with tons of really cool apps.
    2) Beautiful screen (although it is a little small)
    3) Outside of the deal with all of the icons, their UI is very polished.
    4) Facetime

    Apple used to be hip – they were innovative and rebels. Now they are Big Brother. I just bought an iPod Touch and dont even use it. Eventually I will get facetime set up, but it is just not that important to me..

    So many software companies and hardware manufacturers are developing for Android – it just seems that sheer numbers will drive the innovation. I hope TMO doesn’t get the iPhone – it will just congest their network.

    • JB6464

      Ah, my HD2 is just a fragile with it’s No Bezzel design and huge flat 4.3 screen. Drop it and your doomed as well.

      Maybe some don’t care for Swipe,physical keyboard,and cluttered screen of widgets.

      And my friends iphone 4 on AT&T crappy service has no issues with it’s antenna and need to remove the battery if it’s designed properly works like it should.

      And a lot of people have the choice you talk about that other phones provide but they don’t use a third of it’s potential use.

      Sometimes people just want a phone that’s well built phone that gets the job done without spending hours pretending a little 4″ screen is going to give you an internet experience of a lifetime like a real computer will.

      Get real,it’s a phone with internet capabilities , not a full blown laptop or home computer.

      • veronica

        HD2…ha don’t make me laugh on saying being dropped once your doomed. Thats a load of BS. I have the hd2 and has been thrown numerous times by my child and I have dropped it numerous times hell it even skidded across the street when I was in a hurry and it fell out of my pocket. Guess what? It still works…thats right it is still functioning.
        Another thing why the heck would you get an expensive phone yet only use if for a phone. Most people that buy those phones use it for its full advantage, if they know what they are doing. I am sorry that you don’t do that and that you are missing out. By the way you should not speak for others…however I can since I dealt with this on a daily basis but people hate the Iphone once they try out the android. Thats why people switch to T-Mobile.

    everyone hope for the nexus 2. once that phone comes out it will put the iphone4 to shame. just like the mt4g, the iphone4 won’t have nothing any phone.

    i do hope its a nexus 2

    • redman12

      I totally agree, when I saw the Vibrant in person I fell in love with the SUPER AMOLED display, its just missing front facing camera and HSPA+

      • jonathan from los angeles

        i agree too. the screen is just spectacular. when the nexus 2 comes out i just hope that it is hspa+ and has a camera flash. and i also hope that it has the wifi calling feature.

        so the rumored specs better true

  • Kold

    It was the Dell Venue Pro.

    Well that makes it official. I guess I am not allowed to post on your 3rd rate comment board. I have tried several times – under different IP addresses and user names. I don’t think I have ever posted anything offensive or abusive. I guess my input is just not worth your time or you don’t agree with my viewpoint, so you omit my comments.. Any managing editor worth their weight doesn’t leave comments on their own blog. Maybe if you spent your time doing some research and staying out of the ‘pits’ so to speak, your site would be a better one.

    Seeing how my comments are not welcome here, I will not be back. Good riddance.

    • Claude

      I don’t know where you get it from, but managing editors of most websites I know of do leave comments.

      I come to TMONews daily because I am a TMO customer and want to know the latest. Good bye and good riddance to you. Hope you find a board that makes you happier elsewhere.

    • Nate

      This is due to a WordPress issue which seems to happen at random. Don’t get all riled up!

    • XfooYen

      Hahahahahahahaha! GeeToo. Oh my God, let me catch my breath from laughing. I friggin choked on my coffee when I read your suicide note. My rib hurts. Thank you.

    • If you take a website about cell phones this seriously, I hate to see what your day-to-day life is like. I am sad for you.

  • jason

    Alltel (the least anyones worries) is coming out with “Free Fridays” Maybe TM is planning on a bunch of stuff on Nov 20… BOGO for all devices (including laptop devices)… myFaves coming back (which was mentioned by a executive a few months back. He mentioned myFaves will be going to 10 contacts instead of 5)… maybe the “Three Day Weekend” plan will come back… never know. What I do know is that there has been too much hype around Nov 20 to say “cancelled” or “nothings going to happen.”

  • Mr Manson

    It has nothing to do with any new phones, remember the fathers day special? Run with it…

  • T Mo Rep

    magenta Saturday cancelled :(

  • techy2010

    New Tmobile rate plans that are not much better than the competition.

    Snore… Wake me when Tmobile gets an iPhone, even if its not the best mobile.

  • shhhh

    Was supposed to be like before all phones free including upgrades this time but it has been cancelled due to the fact sales are down very bad for the company nation wide

    • marc

      Don’t companies have sales because sales are down?

  • ClAUDE…..quit crying over a rediculously childish message board. Maybe if you devoted your life to something more productive things rather than weeping over a Tmobile blog you might be a happier customer. Get a life and Get back to work!


  • Techy2010 Tmobile offers much more than the iphone ever will. Maybe if you decided to do some research before you open your mouth you wouldnt make all of us dumber for reading your comments

  • This is the most serious I can be about a sentence, “WHAT THE H*LL DO YOU PEOPLE SEE IN THE iPHONE?”

    • all iphones upgrade. don’t they?

      not all androids do except the nexus

    • JB6464

      “What the H**ll do you people see in Android ?”
      They are slow as H**ll to give you any updates through t-mobile,almost always give you small screens on their phones,and Google G-Mail sucks.
      And Android is not such an open source as everyone claims it to be.

    • andysebastain

      I’m an android specialist for tmobile and i think that the iphone is an excellent phone. It’s extremely user friendly, apps feel well polished(most android apps feel unfinished to me for some reason), it syncs to itunes and overall just feels like a really cohesive user interface. I find that most people who diss the iphone are just contrarians who have to be against whatever the general population likes. Now, i do agree that some stuff sucks on it, ie app approval process, but you can’t discount the phone just for that reason. It is not a horrible phone by any means and i plan to buy one on contract with at&t because i’m tired of unlocking the iphone to work with at&t.

  • K-rock

    If the event is cancelled that’s fine, but T-Mobile has to setup a holiday deal. How about the buy one get one free on the HD7 and MT4G?
    My contract is up. I need a rebel deal or I’m turning to the dark side.

  • Frank thomas

    Event cancelled the same day that apple pushes back the ios4.2 release date by one week. Coincidence?

    • Petey

      I just hope iPhone does come to T-Mo… w/ the $10 data plan… I think it sounds very good.

  • tmo

    the mini were shipped to some stores because customers are cutting thier sim cards to fit the i phone 4 and they have reception issues. but then again there is a secret that was told to managers when they went to vegas but i have to leave you in suspense lol. Black friday has always been an all hands day and every employee is required to work on that day every year. nothing out of the ordinary.

  • Dommy

    My update for today is…the event is officially cancelled..but there will be a black friday eveny with a “revamped” BOGO offer..sorry guys, tmobile blows sometimes..excites us for no reason..

    • diva37

      So my bf and I can hold out and purchase one mytouch 4g and get one free, as to paying almost $900 bucks?

      • Jamie

        They don’t normally do BOGO for plans not on a contract. You might be able to get both for $200 after $100 mail in and a two year contract.

      • Young Brezzie

        Seriously your are ignorant if you think you are gonna get a buy one get one free at retail price with no contract. Only way you get a BOGO is if you activate two lines with a contract.

        • Allantoss

          lol.. ur funny man. I agree with u tho.

        • Allantoss

          lol.. ur funny man. I agree with u tho.

  • Fixxer56

    Dommy, will we see any updates about the Black Friday event/sale this comming week?

  • The android creep

    I hope something happens..I rather see android 2.3 with the new nexus..i will not the deny apple has many enthralled by their app drawer..cough phone cough..still will aid tmobile in sales

  • Joe

    The last tmonews update notes the event will be ‘rescheduled’. Is this within a short timeframe, or are we talking next year?

    The T-mobile device lineup is hurting, and the buy-one-get-one-free promos are great for ‘new’ customers or those out of contract terms..doesn’t really do much to maintain existing…

    Offering more/better devices could help with this. Granted the cost may be higher, but it at least attempts to address existing customers.

    Just my 2 cents..

    • I’d like to know this myself, we’re off contract so our options are pretty open right now, we had originally planned on switching to Even More+ which would allow us to get two smartphone data plans for only $10 more per month than we are paying now for one.

      The new $10 data plan complicates things somewhat, an offering like this would be enough to get us to go back on contract.

  • Allantoss

    I’m hoping for something special for EM+ account holders on Black Friday Sales Event.

  • Ducky

    It’s one of the new changes from the CEO… when T-Mobile employees leak things, events will be canceled… Eventually sales associates will learn it only hurts themselves…

  • Guest

    So no update? Nothing out of the ordinary happening tomorrow?

  • Troyag1

    Kinda looks like “red herring” but only the date maybe one week off 27th puts it right on for post-turkey shopping spree.

  • Swpest

    They have increased staffing at all call centers for Saturday due to a big promotion
