Replacement for TMO G1???

Hey guys, I've had the G1 since launch day and sure enough my phone is beaten up. I'm looking to upgrade (preferably staying with TMO) but am willing to move to other carriers. Anyone know if there is something awesome coming out within a month or so?

I keep hearing about TMO's HSPA+ android to be released, but not much more. I'm hoping to get something with a min resolution of 480x800 and running the newer generation of mobile processors. (preferably one of the new dual cores to be released to market). I miss the days when my G1 was the only android on the block! I'm surrounded by all these iphones and android models, but nothing really sticks out as being next gen Sad

Any info? Thanks

Sprint Pizza phone!!! I love being right!!!

Wow!! It's amazing that people come on here and talk about stuff they have no idea about with such conviction. It's even better when they are proven wrong while the discussion continues over time. For example the guy that said pizza hut would never get the double wopper because it is only burger king, only to be proven wrong in the last week...CLASSIC.

Anyone who has seen me post on here before knows that I don't talk about stuff I don't know about, I've gotten in some heated arguments with people who thought they knew what they were talking about and didn't. I posted on here about an EXCLUSIVE BANNANA/SHRIMP COCTAIL FOR WENDY'S A YEAR AND A HALF AGO AND NO ONE BELIEVED ME!!!!

Anyway the point of my post here (first one in a long tim...

AT&T "hero" fixture

A new fixture was installed at many at&t stores this week. A manager had to be on duty during the install. The manager was sent to the back room during the entire install and the windows were covered with paper. It was refered to as the "hero fixture." The fixture is covered and locked so that no one can see it. It's about 6 ft tall and 3 ft wide. A release date has not been given. also the security system was turned off. this is not a joke. the fixture actually exists in several stores right now. The rumor portion of this is WHAT IS IT??? employees were told that there will be instant termination if there is foul play of any kind. Now it's rumored that some employees have already been terminated. I hope they read this a leak the hell out of...

T-mobile Sprint??

I've read a couple articles implying that Sprint is currently looking at T-mobile for an acquisition/merger.

Sprint HTC EVO extra $10/month charge

I seriously doubt anyone is buying this phone to watch TV or use it as a primary camera..............

Here is Sprint's reason for that extra charge:
Thank you for contacting Sprint. I am happy to assist you with plan charges.

I understand that you are not happy with the plan pricing for HTC EVO.
The factors are put in consideration while imposing $10.00 charges for

-The $10 Premium Data fee is for the rich data experience that EVO provides. Our Management put it best when they described the EVO experience like going from regular TV to a High Definition TV.
-Think about when you are in your favorite electronics store looking at the wall of televisions. You can’t help but be drawn to the high-def plasma screens that ...

End of the sidekick?

In T-Mobile retail stores, T-Mobile Premium Retailers, Limited Consignment, online, and through Telesales, sales will cease on July 2.

Sidekick devices have been immensely popular over the years and T-Mobile is taking time to develop the next generation of one of our most popular messaging devices for our customers. Knowing that we are working to innovate and evolve the next generation for our customers, we determined this is the right time to stop sales. More details will be shared as they are available.

Although T-Mobile will no longer sell Sidekick devices, we will continue to provide the same excellent service and support for current Sidekick customers as we do today, including warranty exchanges.

There was plenty of buzz when news first surfaced about a big event happening on June 19 for T-Mobile, but there was no exact word on what was supposed to be expected. As we've seen in a leaked document that stores would be opening bright and early for a special event, we're now getting a better idea of what's expected to happen on that day. TmoNews received a two page documentation that looks to be a script for a commercial which will most likely start to air heavily in the near future. The step-by-step script provides some juicy details on how T-Mobile will be selling every phone for free – from your basic handsets all the way to Android powered ones like the T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide and HTC HD2. Pretty much any handset you desire ...

iPhone insurance from AT&T: *ONLY* $13.99/month!!! ... »

One of our AT&T ninjas just hit us up with some news that will excite those of you who have a chronic case of the dropsies and own an iPhone. AT&T will be launching a new insurance service starting June 6th, named MobileProtect, designed specifically for the Apple iPhone. The insurance plan, which will be run by Asurion, will carry a price tag of $13.99/month and will be available for purchase through Apple’s App Store. The charges will be billed to the credit card on file with Apple. The deductibles range from $99 for an 8GB 3G to $199 for a 32GB 3GS, which is pretty steep — but not quite as steep as $699 for a new 32 GB 3GS off-contract. You must enrol
