Who Cares What T-Mobile Does?

Here's an idea T-Mobile. Shut the *Bleep* up. Why would anyone buy anything from you *Bleeping* Sellouts when AT&T is just going to bulldoze everything to the ground in a year or two anyway. What good will the AWS in my device be then?
Well if your going to buy a disposable phone, might as well be a Blackberry.
Precisely because it will be at least a year or two, and you'll want a new phone by then anyway. Even if they make you upgrade to a new phone "early", they'll have to give you a heavy discount to do it. You'll basically get a spiffy new phone for free...
I just think it's funny that T-Mobile is hemmorhaging subscribers left and right, is leaking money, and has a coverage footprint that, all said and done, is smaller than those of their three main competitors, AT&T included. Yet, they announce that the...

Everyone should buy this phone

so they can experience att at its best when it shuts down the faster network and drags all the former tmo customers back to their clunker speeds...
AT&T's 3G speeds are anything but clunky; they're far faster than T-Mo's. As for 4G, yes, T-Mo has beaten them in terms of an earlier rollout, but AT&T is going to have LTE layered on top of HSPA+; in the long term, their 4G speeds are going to be jus...
do you even try to learn anything? or do you just pretend you already know everything...?

Everytime I hear about BB...

I get mad, I feel like its nothing new, nothing ever changes, just the name. there equipment is whack, they need to do something new, Its been the same for the past decade.
You like what you like. I could care less about Android's 300,000 + apps if it doesn't do the 4-5 things I want it to do.

I find this very interesting...maybe I'm too much of a "Numbers" guy, but...

T-Mobile already carried a Blackberry 9900 about 2 years ago..actually it was a Blackberry Curve 9900.

Did Blackberry forget they already made a model number 9900? or am I being a little nitpicky or stupid? 🤣
I think you're thinking of the 8900.
No, they didn't. The only 9000-series curve was the 9300 (and 9330).

There was also the Bold 9000, Pearl 9100, Storm 9500, all kinds of 9600 series, Bold 9700, and Torch 9800.

But there has never been a BlackBerry 9900 series before.
