    I have no problems with T-mobile....it's the lack of 3G devices that gets to me and I don't know if they will ever be able to convince RIM or any other company to include a 1700 band on all their devices.
    Speaking from first hand experience with the Bold on AT&T and my Curve 8320 on T-Mobile, I can say that the speed difference with 3G is very minimal, and not worth changing carriers. It's important to note, that it's only with the BB platform, as my other 3G phones on AT&T are a lot faster. I'm sure that RIM will address this sometime in then next year or so, as they do tend to be very slow to embrace change. So for now, I would not be too disappointed in T-Mobile. Your low priced BB plan is quite valuable, and switching carriers is a hassle and expensive. Perhaps a year from now it might be worth it, but I cannot endorse it at this point. Not for a BlackBerry anyway.

    AT&T is brilliant at choosing the phones they carry. And while they may not always have what each of us wants, they do have the most variety of any other carrier. They are also the best capitalized of all, which will serve them well in these turbulent times. That translates into a company that also benefits the consumer as they will not be operating under duress from being under funded, under experienced, and struggling. At the end of the day, of the three carriers I use, (AT&T, T-Mobile, VZW) if I had to choose just one, it's AT&T hands down.
    Very true and whoever pays the most and wants the most gets em first. Capitalism at its best.

    I agree with you Archer....I'm definitely not thinking of switching but it does seem like a lot of people are angry with T-mo and rightly so. I for one just bought an unlocked bold to hold me over till the Javelin comes out. I don't surf the web much with my phone, so having edge is fine with me.

    I almost bought an unlocked bold, and seriously considering the flip phone but I so need a full keyboard. I just think tmo is taking too long leaving its customers in suspense knowing att and verizon recently released some nice bb's. I know they dont think the flip phone is the competitor here.

    Here's my take on others "anger". Far too many people are too quick to judge. Too negative. And have no clue just what's involved in this super competitive cut throat industry. T-Mobile is relatively new in the USA. All the elements are in place and they will continue to progress. When AT&T shunned Wi-Fi, T-Mobile was embracing it. While not important to some, it's mission critical for me. I use Wi-Fi, everywhere, everyday.. period. I have a wireless network at home, at the office, and I frequent Starbucks to meet clients, or for a beverage and to work uninterupted on my laptop. It's in the hotels I stay in and many airports. So for me Wi-Fi is a way of life. Anyway, just one example of what's NOT wrong with T-Mobile.

    Cheers...

    All the carriers leave the customer in suspense. A little patience will go a long ways, as I know for fact that T-Mobile has some nice BlackBerry's coming it's way in the next few months.

    Thanks Kara
    It was looking like December Archer, but it may have changed to April/May '09.

    Theres no saying AT&T sells the most BlackBerry's, they do, it's fact. Second, AT&T didn't want the Pearl Flip. Second, the Bold was made especially for AT&T, the Storm was always meant to go to Vodafone and Verizon. AT&T will get it's own version. But surely AT&T wouldn't want the overlap of the Bold and Storm within 2 months of each other? Bad business.

    April or May is a real downer for those of us who don't want the 88xx / Bold form factor or keyboard.

    Its been a while since there were any new Pearl or Curve devices. The natives are getting restless!!!

    I assume (which I shouldn't) Tmo will get this before April/May then?

    I agree, and I attribute it to RIM having too many new phones in development concurrently. A very frustrating state of affairs.

    Damn, so when the 8900 DOES drop on AT&T, it'll be likely that I'll have to choose between it and the Storm too...jeeeez.
    I have a BlackBerry and a WhiteApple. :)
