    Absolutely NOT.
    T-Mobile sells 3rd party apps through their own branded handgo shop and it's linked directly from the T-Mobile site.

    Whoever told you this might be a sidekick user, where is partly true, if you put a dev key on a sidekick and compile+install 3rd party applications it voids the warantee.

    This has no effect on Blackberry phones.

    It does not void warranty, but they will not provide tech support for any problems caused by 3rd party apps.

    I think some one lives in wonderland. That would just kill Handango then. I don't see how it would void your warranty. Kinda ridiculous.

    Re: 3rd party apps on tmo voids warranty???

    After reading some of the comments after the article the writer admits they are refering to more classic cell phones and not including smart phones like the BlackBerry.

    I can not speak for normal cell phones as I have not had one in years.

    However, I can say that adding a 3rd party app will not void the warenty. The artile was basicly saying T-Mobile disables some data options on regular handsets.

    Re: 3rd party apps on tmo voids warranty???

    I'm not sure what he/she means by running into policy. I first had problems with Opera, and actually called T-mobile to make sure that my plan was setup properly. They told me that they couldn't give me much in the way of tech support when dealing with a third party app. But were happy to check my account for me.

    Thank you for the link!
