T-mobile recognizes bad economy, wants to help!

T-mobile has caught on with the notion that the economy sucks and they want to help. Introducing the “Equipment Installment Plan” or EIP for short which will allow qualifying individuals to purchase the phone of their choice and pay it off in four monthly installments. Apparently, it seems right now that you can walk out of the store with no money down, and expect that first payment to charge to your next bill – a wonderful “tool” … [read full article]

Best Buy to carry unlocked subsidized handsets for T-mobile?

And I’m off, but this is my parting gift… I have to say our disbelief when the picture after the jump first arrived in our mailbox was pretty strong, but then we took notice of two threads over at howardforums (and howardforums) which seemed to confirm that such a sale was indeed taking place. A few moments before I was about to post this, one of our forum users snapped … [read full article]

T-mobile Motozine ZN5 video unboxing…

Noah from Phonedog.com managed to get his “paws” (no pun intended, well maybe) on the new T-mobile Motozine launching today. The highest resolution camera phone (5 mega pixel) available on any US carrier, T-mobile is positioning this as the ultimate picture device.

Host change

Just a quick heads up from the TmoNews Tech Guy…. the switch to our new host is nearing completion.

Oh woe is G1 data…

facepalm

Well today today marks the end of the one week free data period offered by T-mobile for those who pre-ordered the G1. Some customers report their data plan has been switched off by an obvious technical glitch inside T-mobile somewhere that is reverting them back to their previous data plan held prior to G1 ownership. *Warning, facepalm alert!* Apparently the paid service which is necessary to access the phones features is not … [read full article]

G1 unlocked…free to roam about the cabin

Let me preface this by saying that while the phone may be unlocked, for the you can pretty much just make and receive calls and text. While I don’t think there is a doubt in anyone’s mind most of the phone’s capabilities will soon be available to AT&T users, for the moment its pretty much just the doldrum talk and text.

Two quick updates…

UPDATE: Walmart stores will NOT be receiving the G1 till November 3rd due to shipping delays! I’m in a little bit of a rush so I’ve decided to condense two entries into one. Yesterday we ran a story via Engadget regarding Walmart and sales of the G1. While the original article stated a “launch” date of November 24th, that has since been revamped to, well, tomorrow. Purchasing the G1 from … [read full article]
