Android is coming to take the market just not with the g1 compared to other phones and high end user this phone wont cut it. This may be the best phone for t-mobile but is not and will never be the best phone on the market id wait for the g4 or g5 models for an impressive device The g1 still has way to many defects. What r u gonna do if u have to master reset bye bye Crying or Very sad programs and saved documents, preferences, and all the hardwork from customizing the device gone in 60sec. NO back up on your computer like a true smartphone should Surprised

Others will have the andriod platform but no because of t-mobile. Google's main focus is to provide the android platform to compete with windows mobile and to place there ad software on mobile devices. Trust me the Sprint versions will be far more impressive

Did you just say Sprint? They are garbage! If you wanna talk about providers Verizon is best hands down. I only got T-mobile because of the rate plans. I use to have Sprint and I dropped more calls then any other provider.

If impressive means dead last customer service ratings, huge quarterly losses and customers running in droves to other carriers at a record pace...sure in your own little world Sprint must be perfect Laughing

Sprint is in a mess that they won't make it out of Laughing

Thats funny because I drop more calls with t-mobile than anyone else. Sprint has the fastest speeds and the best devices. NO one even comes close to Sprints pricing plans. Hands down best Provider. Verizon charges for everything hmmm now wants to charge for 3party text messages thats just crazy. Btw why would you leave the best provider for the worst one! Eh?

Sprint has the best phones on the market. Pro, Diamond, Treo 800w, BB curve, Centro, Mougul, Instinct, Touch, and is always ahead of the game. When it comes to media, picture mail(unlimited), Video mail(unlimited), and the best Tv live channels does t-mobile NO! I've had 3g longer than any t-mobile customer so I know what phones need to have to fully enjoy and get the most out of 3g. Sprint speed is amazing, When it comes to downloads they happen in the blink of an eye on Sprint already great network. Stores are way better than t-mobile locations and do in-store replacement free and have techs who actually fix phones t-mobile does not. Equipment protection for Sprint is 100% better than t-mobile they give u used refurbished phone that don't ...

Carriers that use CDMA networks (Sprint, Alltel, and yes even top rated Verizon) typically lag behind other major carriers in terms of good phone choices.

There is simply a larger market for GSM phones around the world. Your argument simply doesn't make sense that Sprint gets all the best phones Laughing

Lousy carriers like Sprint typically need cheap pricing to get customers. This isn't even working for Sprint. It loses more customers than it gets.

Go back to school Diamond and get an edumacation...lol. Keep working on that grammar Laughing

Friggin CDMA, you can't even do data and talk at the same time. Even the GSM version of the Diamond Pro can do that!

firs off windows suck on phones. i had to hack the crap and spice up the registry on my tmobile wing and treo phones os as well. also in term of best carrier sprint suck bottom line and they are dieing. verizon is better in a sence att as well. even though tmobile is a new company in the usa and is originally a german company merged to england and so on to the usa it still top all these carriers. 3g wise tmobile just brough that to the usa but 3g started on gsm in japan and there network is gsm wcdma 2100 band 3g is faster then verizon and sprint att as well. futher more ur stupid to think that sprint prones are better. the same phone are being release on gsm networks no all in the usa but in other countries. it is only what the company want...

Did I hurt your feelings??? Crying or Very sad I could think of a couple names I'd like to call you but u responses speak for themselves. Laughing

13 years is a long time so I would hardly call them a new company. t-mobile has gps capable phones but does not provide the service so gps is useless. Sprint offers there own gps service and also live television.

Cdma is not dying. Which is also the proper way to spell it by the way. Its evolving and will soon be providing 4g while tmobile will still be using 3g. Laughing Gsm networks are cheap thats why they have more carriers Cdma cost more to build but are better. t-mobile has outages everyday. Cdma has always been the minority over Gsm that's nothing new. But Cdma in the US has out performed Gsm in my op...

T-Mobile Launches 4G
OCTOBER 19, 2005
my feeling are not hurt...not by the lights u.
dumb ass read that cdma is faaaaaaaarrrrr behind
and no, tmobile doesn not have more outages, gsm requires less power to run and it is more effective(company want to make a profit and still make ppl happy) that is business... furthermore my grammar is not need in this forum far less for fool that keep fighting a loosing battle. The FCC is the only reason that 4g is not in the usa yet... u say u research uur **** but yet u fail to see that... discussion ends here i prefer not tango with low lives (i really had to drop my professionalism to respond to this ****)

T-mo offers Telenav on select phones, & Sprint is also getting the their GPS powered by Telenav. So your comment about T-moble not having GPS is WRONG!!!!! & I have freinds that work on Sprints & T-mobiles networks. Guesswhat Sprint has outages everyday too. everycarrier has some sort of outage every day. CDMA is not better that GSM it is differnt moron!!!! yes you fool I work on both networks too!!! Although I dont work on T-mo or Sprints networks!

Eh? OK, I can honestly say this, and feel free to reply with your thoughts. When it comes to data services, yes, Sprint runs more than what T-Mobile does. HOWEVER, that's about where it stops. If CDMA was so much better than GSM, why wouldn't more companies run it? Aside from here in the states, I am pretty sure that very few companies run it abroad. That's why Verizon is having to start putting sim cards in their handsets (Storm) to use internationaly. Secondly, if Sprint is so much better, why are they losing millions of customer per quarter? Last I heard, Q4 was a little under 750,000 lost customers. I know that every company will have those customers who think that the grass is greener on the other side, but 750,000 is not a few ...

I think that was pretty much on point. Everyone has a cons and its easy to point out those cons. Everyone has pros and its easy to point out those pros. Whats not easy is judging between cons without considering the pros.

To say Sprint is the best would be a comment made at the wrong time and wrong place. Perhaps they could have been the best and its possible for you to debate thy were the best in the past. Though, today, thats not true. With the highest churn rate of the top 5 carriers and the largest redtape (losses in comparison to profit), Sprint is looking rough.

I would have to side with CDMA though on this one. I am one of those people who believe CDMA is better then GSM. Thing is, CDMA is a lot like Communisum. Its great in the...

Cdma is way faster and has superior quality to gsm. at&t is having problems with 3g and so will t-mobile speeds will probable be slower regardless Sprint is still way faster than both and dont need sim cards.

Yeah, CDMA is faster, but Sprint Sucks!!!! They have crappy customer service. The billing always has some issue. Why would you say Sprint is better?!?!?!? I have At&t 3g & dont have any problems! My wife has T-mo & can do wifi calling. Sprint doesnt. P.S. Sprints CDMA also has crappy voice services.
