T-Mobile Posts Sign-Up Page For HTC One, Confirms LTE Support

Screen Shot 2013-02-19 at 5.13.51 PM

While the HTC press event earlier this morning all but 100% confirmed LTE support on AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint — a new sign-up page posted by T-Mobile makes it absolutely, positively the real deal. The One marks the first HTC device to support LTE on T-Mobile and will be among the most powerful devices T-Mobile has available right from the start of their LTE rollout. Along with the Note II, Galaxy S III LTE, BlackBerry Z10 and rumored Lumia 810 support, Magenta’s LTE launch is already shaping up nicely with powerful and exciting handsets. So th, build it and they will come aspect seems to be working, minus the build it part…for now.

    Cool. Two devices advertised to support LTE. Still no AD on the Revamped Samsung Galaxy S III LTE? Since I didn’t get the 4.2.2 upstate yet, I assume I’m going to be able to run LTE Advanced on my LG GN4.

  • Qbancelli

    I’m ready!

  • Verizonthunder

    Sorry I will wait…. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 all the way

  • Aurizen

    cool i wonder if there gonna have a page like this for the iphone 5.

  • james

    whats up with these new smartphones with non-replacable batteries? one of the reasons i wasn’t a fan of the iphone.

    • Verizonthunder

      I would agree half way with you on Non-replaceable batteries on android a bad Idea, The iphone was bad before the Iphone 5 due to more tear down to replace yourself, the Iphone 5 fixed that issue but once again I will agree Never a fan of non remove batteries especially on android, that is why Samsung is still on top as best android device brand, and lately fixing their lack of software update’s on High end device’s

    • NYCTheBronx

      Agreed. I felt like I made a mistake purchasing my LG Google Nexus 4 because it would die fast. The 2100mAh doesn’t last me too long. I wanted the Galaxy Nexus because you
      Can extend the battery but now that’s too late. Oh well right. Men, at least I will be able to run LTE.

      • steveb944

        My battery lasts just fine on my 4, you may be doing something otherwise to affect it. I can go a full day and still have juice.

        Get a portable charger pack, those things are great and they’ll power multiple devices. Hopefully we get an extended battery option as the device gets more popular

    • Stars44

      That’s because of design. Both HTC One and iPhone 5 are made from 1 piece of aluminum, inside they put motherboard with battery and cover it with display. Probably for the same reason they didn’t wanna do extra cut out on the side for the memory card as it would not follow the design.

  • Zach Mauch

    LG Optimus G pro or HTC One. None of them are keeping me from getting the Note 2 when the next sale rolls around. Only thing that might is a Phablet nexus phone.

    note: google should only do that if they keep the current form factor as their flagship.

  • Drew

    Nicely done HTC… However…the hype machine THAT IS the S IV and GNote3 will be coming hard and add to the fact that Verizon (the dipshits that they are) has bowed out makes it probably the best phone NO ONE will ever hear about. It didn’t help that you (again) have difficulty naming devices. You release a phone 9 months ago with the “One” series moniker and then proceeded to throw the entire alphabet behind it. One X, One S, One XC, One SC, One XT, One V, One X+… (see below) and then you come out with the ‘One’. WTH are you guys doing??


    When will OEM’s learn not to make a phone JUST for Verizon. They get you to make a phone for them to tag ‘Droid’ all over it and then they tell you we don’t need you anymore… Stop making deals with them. They get what everybody else gets or they get nothing…!!

    • thepanttherlady

      They’re doing it like the Star Wars franchise, the end first. =p

    • NYCTheBronx

      HTC is awesome but there’s a lot of devices going to compete for the crown. HTC’s HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S IV, Samsung Galaxy Note II, IPhone 5S or 6, Motorola X, Nexus 5, Sony Xperia Z, Blackberry Z10, Hussein Ascend Mate. I’m sure there are more companies out their waiting to confirm these phones to be their flagships and push them out in the market. But HTC made one good device. 4.7″ with a great camera and good battery with great internal storage. Let’s see if Samsung will still have their crown. Such an exciting year for all!

      • NYCTheBronx

        I forgot about the LG Optimus G Pro. Lol.

    • Stars44

      Looks like Verizon pays a lot for the exclusivity and orders big amounts of phones. It’s not their fault, it’s their competitors’ fault for being slow. How many customers did tmo lost because of not supporting and not getting iPhones?

    • gpt2010

      I wish it were that easy. Unfortunately Verizon is the big dog in the US. To get the HTC One in most people’s hand in the US, you need Verizon. That’s why they have major pull on the manufacturers. Since HTC is not as big as Samsung or Apple, they have no upper hand in this matter. At least HTC got 3 of the 4 major carriers. Maybe Verizon will cave in eventually, but the will still find a way to change it up. Like they did with the Note 2. Not a hardware change, just a gross Verizon logo on the home button.

    • OnlineRefugee

      I agree with you Drew. I have not been following phone news lately, so when I came to this Site today I had to do a double take, thinking that I must have pressed a bookmark to an old TMoNews page, where it was talking about last year’s HTC One (I never could keep track of which carrier has the X, S, and whatever.)

      So yeah, HTC’s naming convention is stupid. People don’t keep track of letters when shopping for a phone. In contrast, Samsung’s naming convention is stupid easy to understand. I know what the Samsung Galaxy S is, and I know where future models are in the pecking order because there’s the II, III and upcoming IV (or 2, 3, or 4 if one is not into the Roman Numeral thing).

      Update: As I am typing this all that are visible are the comments. I can’t see the article, meaning that even after reading the article I don’t know the what THIS HTC One is called. Is it the “One” without a letter? Or is it called “The One.” Either way, whoever is in marketing is stupid, stupid, stupid.

    I long for the day when we can pick and choose the hardware/software features of our phones.

  • GinaDee

    Now they need to actually provide a sizable LTE footprint so people can actually use these devices. From what I’ve learned today they are having some massive problems with their LTE deployments in Las Vegas and Kansas City. RF issues and lack of sufficient backhaul problems galore!

    • Edgar

      How do you know that?

  • tonkotsu

    I don’t think htc hit all the right marks.. in fact it only barely exceeded whats currently on the market

    -small battery
    -awkward button setup
    -no microsd (though 64gb solves it somewhat.. even though it’s double the cost of a 64gb microsd card for only 32gb of additional storage.. so it’s like paying 4x more for no reason)
    -only 4mp pics? lets see how it works IRL
    -deviating from android.. trying to mix windows and android.. even though not everyone is on board yet.. what are we? beta testers?
    -no wireless charging.. u put it on the dna/butterfly.. but not this… wth?
    -4.7″ screen? why not 4.3? why not 5? why the awkward middle?

    for a (now) underdog, htc should have hit a home run, instead, they’re barely passing. I don’t see sales skyrocketing for a device that is met with so much skepticism in the first few hours of its announcement…

    • Stars44

      Gotta see when it comes out. People say it looks and feels really good.
      – battery is actually 200mAh bigger than sgs3
      – akward button? I had the same on my HTC desire. You can live with it.
      – they say camera would be great thanks to ultrapixel technology
      – not too many phones have wireless charging now, maybe this model lacks it because of the design of the back plate
      – 4.7″ screen is just a lil bit smaller than sgs3 which is sold in tens of millions, but fullhd! Flagship phone can’t be 4.3 and maybe they thing 5″ is too big. Anyways because of that they gonna have highest pixel density than any other Fullhd phones

  • Scott Walsh

    I’m waiting for iPhone to be released, once this happens no other phone will matter anymore! HTC enjoy it while you can, not much longer!

    • NYCTheBronx

      Good for you pal. If the 5S or 6 comes out early, that would be spectacular. I wonder what the T-Mobile logo will look like on the I phone’s. Let’s hope T-Mobile doesn’t load the I phone’s with all that bloat ware apps. Bought a T-Mobile Nexus 4 on EBay and it didn’t come with all that T-Mobile bloat ware
      Apps to irritate me and consume my internal space. Let’s also hope to see IPad’s coming to T-Mobile. =]

      • T-Mobile can’t put its logo or any bloatware on the iPhone. Apple does not allow it.

        • NYCTheBronx

          Thanks. Didn’t know that.

  • tomnewtn

    HTC took Apple to school on this design as the 5 should have been more like this, but instead looks rather unremarkable. Well done HTC. Should be interesting to see how the software runs. I prefer stock and love my Nexus 4, but this looks like a beautiful option to the plastic slabs out there. This will probably be prone to scratches but options to protect abound.

  • jrodakajoe

    I will be getting the at&t version. :)

    • chrisl08@yahoo.com

      Me too ill be getting the att version.

    • then why are you even here ?

      • jrodakajoe

        Hmm because I want to ? And can do whatever I want? Maybe that’s why ?

  • david H

    my biggest problem with htc is that they don’t really update soft wares even for their “high-end ” phones people are stuck on the version they bought the phone.

  • rfgenerator

    Looks like this phone is coming at us with a list price of aprox $799. In a T-Mobile non-subsidized world that means $300 down, and $20 a month for 2 years. BTW I’m basing the list price on an article on Android Central that it’s up for pre-order in the UK for £519 which translates roughly to $799. The BS of the MSRP is going to have to fall before T-Mobile’s non-subsidized model has a chance (at least with high end phones). As I’ve said before T-Mobile is likely to become the home of lots of bottom feeder and midline Android phones.

  • Norman Sands

    I just bought a blu studio 6.0 LTE Will let you know if it works on tmobile next weem when I recieve it!
