Lack Of 3G Network Led To Customer Fleeing

I do not think it is going to shock anyone that T-mobile lost a number of customers due to the lack of a proper 3G network. Deutsche Telekom’s CFO Timotheus Hoettges says, “There is no question that we lost customers because many of our customers couldn’t get 3G. We now have to make sure that we can capitalize on the network in the top 10 cities where we have invested.” The really interesting statement from … [read full article]

T-Mobile Must Love Danger/Microsoft Right About Now

T-Mobile announcing the Danger/Microsoft server failure which resulted in many users losing their personal info (maybe forever), has left Sidekick users frustrated with T-Mobile. Even with the free month of data service, subscribers are still unhappy.

“Project Dark/Black” Speculation

The last five days or so has seen a rush of discussion regarding “Project Black.” The guessing game for “Project Black” has taken the T-Mobile Internet with hopes from an iPhone launch to an unlimited plan that makes even Sprint jealous.
