Pity that T-Mo gets that T809 when it's the worst carrier in terms of reception in the US (at least in every major city I've been in).

But that E61 with the keyboard looks really great! Can't beat that screen...

I disagree I have both Cingular and T-mobile and everytime I go out of Miami to any major city, T-mobile has much better actually surprises me, but its true...

It is a pity, right? Cingular should have definately gotten the phone exclusively. But let T-Mo have it I say. They're gonna need it especially have The Sprint-Nextel merge and Cingular getting 3G soon. T-Mobile is in a lot of lot of trouble. They're not even doing **** to improve coverage either. They just keep overselling their network

i cant wait to get the GSM 850 version of the E70. it looks really great.

Wow Invader. I had no idea you were a carrier basher. I can assure that every city I have been in (some not so major), all over the west coast, and south west. T-Mobile has worked near perfectly. I know you are all into Sprint but that doesn't mean T-Mobile sucks everywhere. Perhaps whatever phone you were using sucked. Smile

I use T-Mobile only and use it everywhere and I never have any reception problems in any cities. I have traveled up the west coast all the way from San Diego to Canada and it worked perfect most of the way. I also used it in Hawaii and was just fine. And most importantly when I took off to Italy I had full reception the whole time!

You should try Charleston, SC. My T-Mo coverage there was basically non-existant. It was roaming when it did work and I couldn't check my voice mail because of the roaming. I love T-Mo, don't get me wrong, but just like all cell phone companies, it doesn't work in every large or major city. That being said, why on Earth do some of these guys think Cingular should get all the best phones first? Cingular is not necessarily better all the time. T-Mo getting the phone is the next step before people stop thinking like they used to about "Made in Japan." Remember the 1960s and 1970s. By the mid-1980s everyone was buying Japanese products because they were less expensive and better quality. The Japanese learned some call Total Quality Mana...

Im unclear what point you are trying to make; Which of these phone manufacturers or service carriers indemnifies the "Made in Japan" stigma?

The _Deutsche_ Telekom company ( T-Mobile )?
The _Finland_ native Nokia phones?
or the _Korean_ electronics manufacturer, Samsung?

I'm talking about the analogy of made in Japan and how it grew from meaning poor quality in many peoples eyes to being the best. Right now T-Mobile USA (not DT) is considered to have poor total coverage, but they have been slowly increasing that coverage to a point where really, the whole coverage complaint doesnt' work as well anymore.

My T-mobile worked perfectly well in Nigeria. Three friends and my brother who traveled with me, and who had other carriers relied on my T-Mobile phone. Calls to and from the US, Britain, and Germany had very very good reception.
