Upgrade problem with t-mobile

I have been a t-mobile customer for 1 1/2 years and they want more money from me to upgrade my phone then new customers. I am willing to sign a new contract (currently I am not in a contract) but they still wont give me the prices they have on their website for phones. Samsung s105 on t-mobile website for $19 after rebate. From me they want $149 and my rebate is only $75 bringing my phone to about $74. I dont understand you people have the same problem with T-mobile...if anyone knows a solution to this please tell me

Just Wandering

Just wandering if anyone knows for sure if T-mobile is going to get the SGH-P735(P730).
Because alot of people think it wont make it to T-mobile and if so, how much do you think the price tag will be on one of them?

Prepaid Nokia 3595 @ target for 59.99!!!!

Target is selling nokia's 3595 with prepaid for 59.99. I'm glad because I was going to buy that same phone at retail price or on ebay. I think retail price is $150 to $199. Now all i did was activate the phone with prepaid. I took the new sim out of the phone and put in my old sim (with my original account) in that phone. So now I have a new phone for 59.99 and a rebate of $20. Now I will have the prepaid sim for backup reasons. Very Happy

Say what you will about GSM, CDMA is the best and it's all here in this article!

Hi guys I got the link to this article from some guy here at I thought I'd share it with you, I know it's long, I was written by one of the guys who helped invent CDMA, very interesting Enjoy!


P.S. I think it's funny when they talk about Europe going to CDMA after all, because this is the only thechnology that supports our needs... »

T-Mobile assigned phone number

One speed bump so far in starting up my new TM account. While shopping, I had asked THREE of their salespeople about getting an easy-to-remember number. They all replied, "No problemo. If U don't like the random one that comes with the phone, just call cust.serve; they'll take care of you." So when it all actually happens today, the cust.serve person sez, "We don't change numbers just because you don't like the current one." Rolling Eyes

Question for T-Mobile reps.

So is T-Mobile getting the V600 by the middle of June or not?

I spoke today to a rep in a Mobile store, but he wanted $350 for the V600 with a new contract and no rebate.He said it was unlocked and that T-Mobile was not getting the V600 anytime soon. Another rep in another T-Mobile store wanted to sell it for $250 plus a $75 rebate. So what's the deal?
IS T-Mobile getting the V600 or not, and why are they giving two completely different prices when the stores where only a couple of blocks away from each other?

Tmobile ranks #2 for reception.

Tmobile ranked 2nd out of the top 7 carriers right behind Verizon in reception.. The worst ranked provider is Nextel. See the data for your self.
Go to: . Now this data is based on overall statistics. The info might not apply in your area. So please do not post anything saying that this company worked better than that company, and say that this info is incorrect "blah, blah, blah". I read it all the time. Companies works better in different areas. But overall statistically this is the ranking in reception and breakdowns.

T-Mobile Gaffe

Not that this is a complaint post - just something that happened with me at TMo that I thought I should share. Hopefully I can resolve it soon enough

Alright I guess I spoke too much good too soon. I used to sing praises of T-Mobile on this forum until sometime back.

But now with the advent of Summer and leaves springing up on the trees - I have lost my signal - TOTALLY!

I have had TMo for 3 years now and this is the first time this has happened! Previous summers were much better and service had only been progressively getting better!

So I spoke to a TMo rep. She and I checked the signal strength on My T610, another 6610 and noticed that it was still a problem. So she said she will
1. have them send me a replacement T610 (I de...

What an Adventure (T-Mobile Fact)

Let me start this off by saying, T-Mobile is the WORST service I ever seen! They suck in every aspect and there is no one that lives in my area that does not associate the word "suck" with T-Mobile those bastards, excuse my language, ripped me off.

It all started around January, when I wanted to buy the Samsung E715. I had been looking around online and it so happened that there was a T-Mobile booth in my local mall. Well, I do go to the mall a lot and can say that I had never seen it there before, quite odd it's right infront of finish line.

So over a couple weeks, I had gone there 2 or 3 times. My father and I were worried what the coverage map showed us, but one of the T-Mobile reps said "My service is perfect". Thats the first lie....

Need Advice - Existing T-Mobile Customer Looking for New Phone Recommendation

Hi out there. I am seeking advice as to what would be a good phone to purchase (I currently have a T68i which is starting to crap out on me after a couple of years.). I am an existing T-Mobile customer so am told I am eligible for "upgrade", whatever that means!

I am looking for a phone which (1) has decent to good battery life, (2) has world roaming capabilities, and (3) is a good, solid phone at a decent price.

I do not necessarily need bells and whistles (no camera necessary), but just want a good all-around phone. I have looked at the Samsung X-105, and the Nokia 6610 so far. Also not sure if there's anything new coming out shortly that is worth waiting for (and which is not overly expensive).

Any advice would be greatly appre...

Unsupported Nokia 6820 on T-Mobile?

I am a new T-Mobile customer and I just got a Nokia 3595. Now I want to get a Nokia 6820, however. I'm trying to figure out if it will work with my T-Mobile account.

Is it possible to get the Nokia 6820 and transfer my service to it? If so how do I do it? I'm technically inclined and don't mind doing a little configuring if that is what it takes.

Thanks in advance! Very Happy

T-zones ringtones

I am getting the moto v600 soon. It says it has 4 Mp3 Ringtones. I found out you can download the ringtones for .99 cents from T-Zones. But can you only download FOUR ringtones or more than FOUR. Cuz I would like to put more than FOUR ringtones on my phone. I heard it also had a 5MB storage or something. So I'm guessing you can download MORE THAN FOUR ringtones. But I just want to be sure. Plus does anyone know if some of the tones are free?

phone question

I'm kind of new to the cellular company researching thing. I've had Tmobile/Voicestream for years and I'm not looking to go anywhere else. I've been looking at other companies with my boyfriend whose contract expires next week. I was told by the cingular and att rep that they can special order any phone they don't carry in there store that works on their network.

Now I like Tmobile's phones in the UK, and I was wondering if anyone had imported a phone through tmobile or special ordered one. I've been waiting 2 years to get a new phone and my poor v60 cannot last much longer, but I really dislike all of the US tmobile phones.

Mobile-to-Mobile for Prepaid "EasySpeak"

Hello again, all:

I'm having difficulty getting the level of precision I want with the search engine here. Putting "mobile-to-mobile" in quotes in the search give me nothing but pages without the phrase even in it. So I apologize in advance if the following question has been answered already.

My question is, if my friend has T-Mobile regular service, and I get EasySpeak service, will my friend be charged for calling me or vice versa, or will the mobile-to-mobile that he has kick in so that the call will be free for him?

Thanks to all who may help!
