T-Mobile announced a MySpace application today specifically for users of the Sidekick messaging device. The application has a new user interface that will allow T-Mobile subscribers to access their MySpace pages and see new messages, friend requests and comments. Users will also be able to view their home pages, access MyMail, blogs and perform searches, as well as update their profiles and send pictures from their Sidekicks to their MySpace photo galleries. T-Mobile will be rolling out the service gradually over the next six weeks, and all Sidekick iD and Sidekick 3 users should be able to download the application and subscribe to the service by the end of October.

Its about time T-mo jumped on the bandwagon. How hard is it to write an app for myspace???

Helio and AT&T realized the value of this evil long ago.

I am a loyal T-mo customer, but i wish they would jump on the bandwagon faster, or better yet CREATE their own bandwagon.
T-Mobile creates their fair share of "bandwagons"...myFaves, HotSpot@Home, FlexPay...

What about speed...?

Do the data speeds on T-Mobile even make it worth it? I'm a T-Mobile user and prefer their company to all the other providers, but they don't have 3G so would MySpace even be plausible on their network? Even on 3G phones, MySpace is clunky because it is so heavily picture/video oriented.

The amount of data downloaded is just too much to really function well on a phone (and I don't want a thousand people saying "Well it works great on my blah, blah, blah...." I know that everyone thinks they have the best phone out there)! Rolling Eyes
thats why i use opera mini to get on myspace...even with slow connections it still nice...
It's a custom app, so it doesn't load up the actual page. This makes it quicker because instead of loading up all the useless crap, it just gets specific information. It shouldn't be a problem on EDGE.

Just so long as they don't become t-amp'd its ok with me ;-)
Pretty cool, but alas, Helio is EV-DO/CDMA and T-Mobile is EDGE/GSM so it would cost too much to convert. Crying or Very sad
