Cingular Customer But T-Mob got it

korey1

Aug 3, 2006, 8:48 PM
I would say lookin at this phone its got T-Mob written all over it. Though based on cingular losing out on the Q and K1 first that this may go to them but I'm saying a high possibility the T-Mob has it.

Wrong. If Moto offers an exclusive agreement at all on this phone, it will be with Cingular. Think logically about this.

Why would Motorola isolate themselves from 57+ million customers in the US (as well as their money) by going with a smaller company such as T-Mobile in comparison? T-Mobile doesn't even have half the customers that Cingular does.

Moto signed an exclusive deal with T-Mobile over the PEBL because it wasn't as much of a groundbreaking design (which results in popularity) as the RAZR. This has Cingular written all over it.

umm yea personally i think cingular is going down hill with everything becasue word on the streets of RI is that cingular is leaving here because they only have like 300 customers in the whole state and tmobile and verizon have thousands more than that and there is a lot of contractors around here that use nextel sprint and boost. and cingulars service in RI BLOWS!!! Verizon works everywhere but drops calls and tmobile doesnt like to connect??? hello people work on service here...o yea cingular is leaving maine too cuz verizon is the only service that works up there! well tmobile just put up some towers in the augusta and springfield area but still they dont have any stores up there...and i want that phone!!!

Companies don't just get up and "leave" an entire state. If you're going to spin tales, at least make them believable.

And what does that have anything to do with Cingular getting the exclusive on the KRZR? Oh, nothing.

Cingular is still the largest carrier in the US. Whether you think they should be or not.

I hate when people say that cingular is the largest carrier in the US. They still have more than half of there customers on AT&T. Literally they pay more every month, or they dont even have all of there customers on the GSM network. Besides T-mobile signed a contract with Motorola to get a lot more exclusive phones. I am not saying that t-mobile is getting this phone I am just saying that it Cingular doesn't automatically get this phone, especially since Motorola is rumored to be upset with Cingular because of the lack of customer service and all the lawsuits against them.

Just rumors. Why dont you check out engadget.com and see Cingular's roadmap of phones and you will see it for Cingular 4th Qtr. And as far as them not having all of their customers on the GSM network, who cares. Over 90% is and even VZ still has customers holding on to their analog coverage. And ATT does not have a network, Cingular purchased it so it is Cingular's and your percentage of customers on ATT's network is completely off. Half of their customers are not as Cingular has integrated a large chunk of both networks. Also, Moto could care less about people unhappy with Cingular's customer service. Cingular could turn around and say they are unhappy with the quality of products they have received from Moto with the recalls. Facts...

😁 Well heck, if Cingular gets it first and t-mobile a few months after that, thats fine by me. I can wait the 6 months to a year for this to come to tmobile (if in fact it does come to tmob). Patience is a virtue 🙂

You like going off on tangents huh... well I got one for you!

Cingular and ATT are one and the same. Ask anyone with ATT, they get a bill from Cingular, which means they are Cingular customers. How your saying it, if someone signs up at an agent location, they aren't customers of Cingular but of that agent company... Come on man... get it together.


As far as Motorola handsets?? They can have em.. Every single Motorola handset that came out for at least the past year has 100 percent sucked (with the exception of the RAZR). As someone else stated in this thread, Moto phones can't maintain a stable EDGE connection (which is why all the newer versions of the RAZR, and even the v557 were released with GPRS, not EDGE). That was don...

umm yea they do when they only got 1 crappy store in the whole state your town is probably bigger than this state ok tmobile has like ten stores and verizon wireless has 4 or 5 and the rest r just universal dealers and cingular sux in ri end of story nobody has them cuz they cost mad and blow big time service wise here... o yea and theyre never open for service anymore to tell ya the truth i think they permanentally closed here after all like 5 miles from here is the border to the mass. cingular ppl just go there

I'm not sure about the RI thing..

But I know about Maine. Cingular doesn't own towers in Maine. They are used with a roaming agreement of another company. If (and I use the word if very loosely) they do leave the state, it's because the roaming agreement was cancelled.

Personally I think your talking about something you have no idea about.

Have a great day! 😉

Nope, thats not true..I live/work in maine and cingular has some of their own towers in maine, about 40% of the towers are cingular, but the rest are roaming agreements with unicel (a local provider in maine) so...apperently you dont know about maine or RI for that matter.

The the towers were acquired when they bought ATT because Cingular didn't have any of their own towers before the merger.

Well I am not sure where u got the info that T-Mobile is not in Maine.I work for T-mobile we have 3 stores in Bangor and 3 stores up north then there is a Sams Club Walmarts and other dealers... get your facts straight. Portland and other areas are very well polulated as well. Cingy is not around Bangor alot but they do ave towers exsp on the coast and mDI

I know this has nothing to do with this phone but i cant help but post my thoughts on everybody's carrier argument.

I *personally* dont believe that cingular's not ganna stay on top much longer for these 3 reason's:

#1. Cingular is ganna start charging its AT&T customer's $5 to stay with their phone & plan. Once that happens we all can agree that 99% of them will not stay with cingular after their contract with AT&T is up.

#2. Cingular is currently going through a lawsuit in california for purposly degrading the AT&T Network and forcing customers to switch to their GSM Network. Cingular promised both at&t cusotmers & cingular customers that both networks will be maintained and only get better. How unfair dont ya think?

#3. The Ci...

well, i dont wanna get into a fight but it's kinda annoying when people who are yelling at someone else because the person being yelled at is WRONG well sir, i work for cingular and you are wrong.

1. cingular is charging it's TDMA customers 5 dollars because we have to pay for the TDMA roaming, because cingular no longer offers TDMA, we arn't charging just AT&T customers.

2. I dont know about the problem in california, but i know that they are working were there are cingular and old at&t towers to take the old at&t tower and just use the one cingular tower, yes they are taking away the at&t tower but only because there is a cingular and old at&t tower right NEXT to each other.

3. yes cingular will most likely change their name to AT...

I havn't heard anything about the KRZR at work (and i work for cingular) i dont think that we will be getting it, but then again i could be wrong. I dont remember when the motorola rep came in to our store if she said anything about it, but the V3i will be out sometime soon.

thats because unlike u we most likely can afford this kind of crap which is better than supporting a bunch of black and some white people in katrina zones or worrying about low lifes trying to start with the best people in the world us them iraq ppl and i see it this way it did not happen to us we dont have to worry about no offense black people or white ppl im just saying if we help others and then something happens to us guess what we then cant afford to help ourselves because the ppl that needed it got it and now theyre broke but r living and were destroyed and have nothing hmmm????

i find this terribly amusing as a T-Mobile Customer and A soon to be former Alltel Employee ( they pay good but not good enough) I amused by the bickering over this phone. on the CDMA side Alltel will likely lauch the KRZR K1m first and get a big bump from it as Verizon has missed the boat and GSM is for once coming in second. I also Look forward to getting the GSM K1 on Ebay for my T-Mobile account. Cingular may get an exclusive deal for this one if they bid high enough like the V3 but they can't afford this campaighn of cheap cool phones with expensive crappy service forever. OMG Cingular Data and Messenging rates are a freaking joke. Who cares if you get less dropped calls if you gotta pay twice as much for the service. and...
