    T-Mobile Bans Others' Apps On Their Phones

    Advertisement



    "T-Mobile has recently changed their policies and now tell their customers with appropriate data plans and with Java-Micro-App-capable T-Mobile phones: You can, of course, still use their incredibly clunky and crippled built-in WAP browsers, but GoogleMaps and OperaMini are left high and dry. Would anyone care to speculate if this move is likely to retain or repel customers?"

    What exactly does this mean? Like what is it trying to state?

    Just wondering,

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Only applies to blocking all access for the $5.99 t-zones plan. Some ppl were able to fully access gprs with that plan. No worries for those with the proper $20 and up smart phone plans. Don't believe the hype without fully knowing.

    Time for those people to fork up for full unlimted service.

    I've only seen dubious comments so far but this policy only seems to apply to feature phones and not PDA's and smartphones. They'd be shooting themselves in the foot by applying the policy to the latter devices.

    Re: T-Mobile Bans Others' Apps On Their Phones

    I can't see it for the BB plans. I could understand for the really cheap 5.99 plan though. The sales rep. and the 611 BB team both were telling me about how to set up my BB as a modem for my laptop and it was FREE to do such. That, in itself, would be the same as a 3rd party application directly on the device. They even have the instructions on their website to do this. So I just don't see this being accurate.

    Even if it does not effect unlimited data users, I'd still like to know where that info was pulled from.

    It was pulled from Howardforums.com you can head there and search for it. It made it's way to slashdot with alot of confusion. You dont have to worry with proper smartphone plans.... ppl who tether their phones to their laptops would pull WAY more data month then text based gmail, or spottly used google maps. Tethering is also considered a feature that you pay for.
