How Can I Get A Phone

OK now that I have decided to stay with T-Mobile I want a new phone. I upgraded my service plan yet had only been a customer 2 months and didn't qualify for a free phone or a discount on one.

I dson't understand why ALL of the celluar companies won't sell their phones at a reasonable discount. I don't mind paying 150. for a new Nokia 6610 but I do mind paying the 230. list price they want.

How can I purchase a phone at a reasonable price without waiting for my 12 months (which just began again because of the upgrade) to be completed? There must be a way to buy a phone at a reasonable price, no... yes?

Number Portability is tops for Tmobile and Verizon Wireless.

Verizon Wireless and Deutsche Telekom AG's T-Mobile USA Inc. are the "big winners" in number transfers, Rollins said. Smith Barney analysts "would not be surprised for AT&T Wireless to post negative net adds versus our estimate of 50,000" customers in the first quarter, he wrote.

Sprint or T-Mobile Need Quick Help Please

I also posted this in the Sprint Forum as time is short:
Thanks for reading this:

I live in So. California. I do not travel much outside of the state aside for visits to Las Vegas and Dallas.

The company I work for offers a special price on Sprint PCS plans with a free Sanyo 8100 phone. The prices are 500 minutes @ $33.75 or 300 minutes @ $26.50.

I currently use T-Mobile (Nokia 3565) and haven't had any huge issues with the service. I am on a 39.99 plan that includes 600 minutes.I almost always stay within my plans minutes .. usually under by about 150 or so.

The Sprint promotion at work ends very soon. Therefore, does it make sense to change to Sprint? I have never used Sprint so how does i...

New Upgrade Scheme

So as per tmobilerep's post a couple of days back I checked with T-Mo and basically as an upgrade a customer can get any phone that T-Mo offers at the same rate as new customers from their website (after rebate - just like new customers).

Now while that is fantastic here is my question - will "dealers" such as amazon be able to offer upgrades with their discounts?

If I wanted to upgrade to new equipment as a existing customer is there any sort of processing fees involved or upgrade fees? Any feedback would be great. Thanks

Does any one know when T-mobile will launch some new phones? I found that they have a great network and great customer service, but crappy phones. I think that they have an internal problem or no depart to review and release phones.

North Detroit 'burbs

I'm in day 4 of my T-Mobile trial after less than satisfactory customer service from Verizon. Can anyone vouch for the service in the Troy/Rochester/Lake Orion area with T-Mobile? Either way, I would like to know before I sign or cancel. I found one dead zone on Rochester Rd. between Mead and Snell Rds.

Samsung V205 calendar entries

Does anyone who owns this phone know how to add more than one event to the calendar on the same date? If so, could you please explain it to me. Otherwise I can just ask Samsung (1800SAMSUNG) but they always want me to have the phone in hand and I don't have it here right now.

AIM Software on 3390, E105 & V300

I've been using AIM on either my Motorola V300, Samsung E105 or Nokia 3390. I know every action u do such as Signing on, signing off & IM a buddy counts as 1 text message. Currently I have 10 buddies in my "Mobile Device", 4 of them are online. It seems that if I Sign on or off, I'm wasting a text message for every person that is on my "Mobile Device" buddy list. I've talked to 5 or 6 Customer Care Reps. & most of them can't really explain why is that. A few ppl I know & myself included noticed that because we are going to the roof with Text Messages charges, not to mention we all have Text Messages packages. Evil or Very Mad Since I can't really get a straight answer from either Customer Care Reps & Text Messages Reps; I wanna know if any of u know ...

GPS on T-Mobile

I wanna know if there's a way to put GPS Software on T-Mobile phone. If so, what phones can I do it on. If can't be done, how can I go on tracking a T-Mobile phone?

Which phone has LOUDEST earpiece?

Because I usually spend much of my time outdoors and in places with lots of people, being able to make sense of what the caller is saying to me is more important that any other feature! Of all the T-Mobile phones available right now, which has the loudest earpiece?
