Help getting a new phone
I've been a T-Mobile (Voicestream when I joined) customer for about 2.5 years. My original contract of course ran out about 1.5 years ago. Considering as long as it's been, my old phone is dying, and I wanted to upgrade and get a new phone.
I called up T-Mobile and asked what my options were considering I'd be more than happy to sign up for a new contract. I was told that I would not qualify for a discounted phone and would have to pay far above what any new customer walking into a T-Mobile store would pay for any given phone. The reason given was that the plan I've been under for the past 2.5 yrs has been a $30/mo plan, and in order to get a discounted phone, I would have had to have been on a $40/mo plan or higher for the ...
Madison WI Coverage?
I know the coverage map says its roaming, but will that change with any new merger? I would kill for a Sidekick.
SGH-P730 vs SGH-D410
can't really decide which one I should wait
for. I know both sgh-d410 and sgh-p730 are
awesome phones and it would be worth wating
for phones like those. but I have no idea
when is coming out. do you?

samsung SGH-D410 on ebay
unlocked sgh-d410 is way too expensive on ebay.
I heard the phone is coming out in May but, does anyone know the exact date when this phone is coming to Tmobile stores?
3 week temp phone
Ideally, I'd like to get their prepaid plan with 60 minutes for $69.99, but there doesn't appear to be an option for internet service with that plan. Of course their basic nationwide plans are cheaper (and internet $19.99/mo. vs. $29.99/mo.) but it requires a year contract.
Tmobile also offers a GSM Worldclass phone rental for $79/mo. Is that something I can pick up at a Man...
T-Mobile GPRS and Motorola V300
But I noticed that the GPRS icon at the top of the display never comes on when I'm accessing T-zones. Also, compared to using mobile web (WAP) browser on my old, old, Sprint phone the v300 is just as slow (as best I can tell).
T-mobile customer service told me that if I'm using T-zones then GPRS must be being used and I shouldn't worry that the icon isn't displayed. They said if GPRS wasn't working I wouldn't be able to accessing the web, email etc.
But... I'm wondering why the phone isn't telling me its using GPRS. Does my browser have the wrong connection info, is this a phone bug, programming problem or what?
I did notice th...
Coverage in the NY area
Deutsche Telekom SIM?
Gotta be some T-Mobile CSRs out there that know the answer to this one. Or do I have to drive up to DT's headquarters in Bonn to find out! Don't tell me to call 611 and get the phone unlocked; there's a lot of history behind this question ( YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW!)
some new phones
thinking of switch fr VZ to TM-questions
mostly because i like the features of Moto V300 but i'm oncerned that GSM coverage could be inferior to VZ CDMA in my NY/NJ metro area and into Hudson River Valley. Any experience with the phone or the service?
What've you got to show?
So, my friend, who is a technical genius compared to me, sent me the link to snapnpost.com ; a web photo log where you can simply e-mail pics from your phone and it will upload them. I thought maybe it was another scam where you can upload like five pictures and then after that they slam you with a $30.00 a month bill if you want say six photographs rather than five... but it turned out, and this is rare indeed, I was wrong.
Pretty damn nice how that works out.
Will that count?
Handspring VisorPhone & T-Mo
I have spent untold hours with Handspring support, T-Mo support, 3 T-Mo Co. stores and the T-Mo "Unlock Specialist" Chris via email to no avail.
All I want to be able to do is stick a Deutsche Telekom (You Know...those guys over in Bonn that OWN T-Mo USA!) prepaid SIM in this sucker and use it in Germany next month!
T-Mo reps can't even tell me whether a DT SIM will work in the phone whether or not its SIM ( or subsidy) locked. Much less being able to check for me w...
