hmmm, just a thought

I think you guys are missing the point it is not just t-mobile, or just samsung. Take a look at Moto, it started out with the razr, and then they decided hmm lets make it so it is not as wide and call it a krzr k1m, or how about we cut just a little bit more off of it and just call it the krzr k1 and drop off the m. Oh I got a really good one, how about we make it so it slides and call it the rizr, and now lets not forget about the razr v3r, v3m, v3i, and the newest v3xx, and all the major companies have at least two of those or like at&t who has 5.

Oh I got another one, lets look at the Palm Treo, they started with the 180, then it was the 270, then the 300. After that it went to the 600(gsm), and the 600(cdma), then it was the 650 fo...
Absolutely true. Lots of manufacturers -- I dare say all manufacturers -- recycle phone models and operating systems. Moto with the RAZR to PEBL to KRZR...and so on...If we, as consumers, want more product differentiation then we should quit buying th...

heres what it boils down to

For gods sake it's an entry level flip phone!!!!
it's not supposed to be fancy with all of that crap some other phones have!
It's a basic phone for people who don't want or can't have a camera at work.
The reason tmobile doesnt carry a lot of the extra stuff you see elsewhere is because they wait most of the time for the bugs to be worked out.
There is also something called an exclusivity contract just like cingular att&t window lickers what ever there called this month had with the razr a few years ago.
Tmobile had the same thing with the pearl it states in those agreements that xyz carrier will be the only one to carry this model for whatever amount of ti...
Hey buddy, why don't you sit back, take a deep breath and count to ten. Here is an idea for you as well, if we all talk about stuff that makes your IQ drop a little, and we all are doing it, why don't you just NOT read our comments! I'm sorry that w...

This isn't T-Mobile's fault!

It's all Samsung! If you have browsed these boards much the last 1-2 years, you would have seen all the posts about how Samsung is famous for the "drop a feature, add a feature" thing.
It kind of is T-Mobile's fault though! I recently quit my job working for corporate T-Mobile and honestly these guys have no interest in carrying "cool, cutting-edge phones" they just want stuff thats cheap, basic, and functional.
For some reason ...

sweet lord

Why does this keep happening? New phones come out that are exactly the same as the last 4 previous models, and have only cosmetic differences. C'mon now, lets actually make an upgraded model and UPGRADED model!
becaue we are T-Mobile and in exchange for our cheap service you get phones that make you want to cry. Cool As opposed to AT$T where you get great phones but also are charged a fortune for you service. Cool
LOL! That was what I was about to type. Why is tmobile keep comming out with the same exact phone day after day. Just because you change the color and maybe cut 1 cm off the width and length doesnt mean its a different phone.
