“It’s time for T-Mobile to stop dressing up like their favorite super hero, Sprint 4G.” #4GWARS

This is going to be fun. The new T-Mobile decided to take off the gloves and promote their HSPA+ network as America’s largest 4G network and now all the other carriers are going to have a fit. We predicted T-Mobile was going to call the other carrier’s 4G bluff and part of me thinks they were looking to start a fight (to bring attention to the faster speeds of their network).

If any of the other carriers want to get really technical and gripe about HSPA+ being true 4G technology, then T-Mobile is going to counter with the International Telecommunications Union press release which states that no current wireless technology which is being adopted by any carrier meets the actual “4G” definition.

Our friends from IntoMobile interviewed Reid Walker, VP of Corporate Communications for T-Mobile and he explained their reasoning. “The market has determined what 4G is, and customers aren’t concerned with what the ITU decides or the technology behind it. Customers have come to expect faster speeds and a better overall experience .”

Sprint was the first carrier to take the bait and already offered a response to T-Mobile’s move posted at FierceWireless. Matt Carter, Sprint 4G President, issued the statement, “Halloween is over, it’s time for T-Mobile to stop dressing up like their favorite super hero – Sprint 4G.”

Now I wonder – If T-Mobile says the G2 and myTouch 4G offer “4G speeds” at 14.4 Mbps, does that mean AT&T can do the same with their HSPA+ upgrade that will also run at 14.4 Mbps? If that’s the case then every carrier could offer a “4G” Android phone this holiday season, except for Verizon. Oh the irony.

    Love it!

    While HSPA+ is faster when you HAVE IT, in general, T-Mobile coverage is horribly spotty, with mass amounts of deadzones and dropcalls.

    Sprint is much more reliable coverage wise.

    • http://Website watbetch

      Coverage is relative, for me, Sprint isn’t worth the breath. Their 4G network most certainly isn’t. T-Mobile has already leap frogged over their network.

      • http://Website Richard

        I’m not sure how you figure t-mobile has leaped frog over anyone. Sprint is the only 4g network in the united states since April 2010….T-mobile is 3g or 3g+nothing more than that…T-mobile is the 4th carrier and will always be. The only reason t-mobile can get any attention or any play at all is because HTC IS THE ONE THAT MAKES ANY DEVICE THEY GET….HTC IS THE BEST SMARTPHONE MAKERS IN THE INDUSTRY. OTHER THAN THAT T-MOBILE WOULD BE NOBODY…HTC EVO 4G VS MY TOUCH 4G….DOG FIGHT TIME. THE BEST ANDROID DEVICE IS THE HTC EVO 4G AND THE SAMSUNG EPIC 4G.

        • http://Website Gee

          I’m a Sprint/EVO user but… Sprint doesn’t have a 4g network either. Not until they upgrade to WiMax 2.

          That said, Sprint’s WiMax coverage is comparable to TMO’s HSPA+ coverage. And from what I’ve read their HSPA+ network is just upgrades to their existing 3g towers which it’s coverage is horrible compared to Sprint’s. So not only is their overall data coverage worse but their 4g coverage will eventually be blasted by Sprint’s.

          • http://Website Richard

            Sprint has already surpassed t-mobile in this area…I am a HTC evo 4G owner and my 4G has been working since since august in the area where I live at and since October in the area I work at here in new York city and just having the choice to decide to use 4G or 3g is beautiful that is exactly why the evo came with the different toggle switches WiFi,3g,4G,and hotspot you just use them when you want. Sprint is the number one carrier coverage wise and network wise. Customer service with sprint for me gets 8out of 10th stars. HTC evo rules over My touch 4g….Bring it on t-mo

          For non-noobs everyone who is an Android expert knows that the Nexus One is still the champ. Now saying that if Sprint would have got the Nexus me and a few other people would have switched to Sprint but now T-mo has the Nexus and faster 4G so who the hell needs them. Also lets not for get lower prices and free tethering on the Nexus.

  • http://Website Drew

    I want tmobile to knock this out of the park! I need some new, better phones and that means we need more subscribers! Come on Tmo! Fastest speeds + cheapest plans + (hopefully) the best phones=win all day!

  • http://Website Max

    Now if only T-Mobile can get an exclusive SUPER smartphone! That will really show Sprint who is boss. Honeycomb, full qwerty keyboard, dual core, front facing camera, HDMI port…a lad can dream, can’t he?

    • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

      What’s wrong with the myTouch 4G? It is tops for what’s out right now. It might not have the biggest display or HDMI, but it has Qualcomm’s fastest CPU/GPU and the fastest 4G speeds. Better phones are always around the corner, but T-Mobile has the fastest HTC Android phone that is out right now.

      • http://Website avi

        I agree with you…T-Mobile is the best!

      • http://Website B

        HTC Sense, same screen size as my Nexus, and the my touch name ruined it for me. I was disappointed to see that that’s what Emerald ttheh out to be. I guess I’ll wait til next year to see what else will be coming out, if anything.

        • Snafu77

          The only thing I’m waiting on is the new Google phone. If that fails to amaze me then I’m not going to be ditching my N1 until next year. T-Mobile has decent phones just nothing that is superior enough over what I have now. If I had a much older phone or a phone that hadn’t been upgraded to Froyo I would jump on the next Samsung to drop or a G2.

          • http://Website B

            i feel the exact same way, though I would rather get a new HTC phone than Samsung, if this new Nexus really exists.

        i thought the htc desire hd was the fastest phone out right now.

        LOL, T-Mobile has the fastest what??? Really?? Thats funny, they can’t even get their 3G network together. I guess in order to keep up with everyone else you just jump into new things, before you figure out how to correct the lame 3G network they already have???

        Good job t-mobile, theres a reason you are behind everyone else when it comes to quality.

      • http://Website Richard

        Wimberly you need to stop….The HTC EVO 4G IS BETTER THAN THIS DEVICE AS WELL THE SAMSUNG EPIC 4G YOU CAN EVEN THROW IN THE MOTO DRIOD X AS WELL AS THE HTC DESIRE HD….T-MOBILE FINALLY JUST GOT A DEVICE THAT MAYBE SOMEONE WOULD WANT BESIDES THE HTC HD2…T-MOBILE’S SMARTPHONE LINE UP IS A JOKE JUST LIKE THERE NETWORK…FASTER MEANS WHAT???

    • http://Website Richard

      This is not a dream…..It’s a joke t-mobile is going no where fast with there fake 4G service. If you want a winner that has been in the game of 4G for a while then join SPRINT THERE PLANS IS BETTER THAN T-MOBILE PLUS UNLIMITED DATA RULES AT SPRINT AND SO DOES THE ONLY PROVEN 4G DEVICE ON THE MARKET TODAY THE HTC EVO 4G

    Dear Matt Carter, take off the drag. You’re not “4G” either. ;-)

  • http://Website watbetch

    Sprint doesn’t even have a 4G network. They resell Clear’s WiMAX network. Let’s make sure everything is 100% clear here Mr. Carter, It’s still not “4G” either.

  • SGB101

    Tmobile is now the largest provide in the uk, now that it has merged with Orange, however i can only get HSPA at best, usually only 3G most of the time, which is ok but would love HSPA+

    i know Vodaphone was traling HSPA+ in the uk but im not sure if they have rolled it out.

      Billl….What are you talking about t-mobile buying sprint the #4 carrier t-mo buying the #3 carrier sprint yeah imagine that….that would be a neat trick…Sprint would make t-mobile’s network better if they did buy em…..I can’t blame customers on t-mobile finally feeling like they have become relevant again since they have been in the dark for so long….

      I agree with you Elnene20…You have to have an HTC EVO 4G to understand what this device is truly capable of so many people are in the dark IT’S TRULY AMAZING…HTC NEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING AND SPRINT KNEW EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT AND HTC MADE IT FOR THEM…..THIS FLAGSHIP DEVICE WILL BE AROUND FOR A WHILE AND SPRINT WILL TAKE CARE OF IT AND MAKE SHINE TILL THE EVO 2 COMES OUT…GINGERBREAD IS WAITING FOR US SPRINT EVO OWNERS IN DECEMBER WATCH HOW FAST THAT UPDATE REACHES THE EVO FROM SPRINT.

  • http://Website Bod1ggity

    The coverage on both networks is spotty at best. Ill stick with verizon and wait for their “4G” to roll out, I live in tampa so It will be one of the first cities its intoduced to. All I can say is this, im a paramedic and I spend alot of time in hospitals, the other carriers get no coverage inside of Tampa General or Bayfront (two large hospitals). My Verizon has always had 4 bars inside. My phone is a phone first and toy second. As cool as this “4G with a Front Facing camera” is, if I cant place calls without dropping them its all useless to me.

    • Joel

      *sigh….theres alot of truth to what your saying, Coverage does mean alot to me, but so does speed, in my area both are…OK…guess time will tell.

      Anyway, regarding the post, if anyone jumps on tmobile now it would be out of fear I think, their speeds are relatively faster, and the only way to jump on the scene and actually make their voices heard is to….well…go on the offensive.

      Nuthing personal, its just sales….remember the at&t/Verizon coverage map commercials?

What do I do? Move to TX? Tmobile should have done this a long time ago.Now they are just playing catch up and sure the speeds are without a doubt awesome but like Drew said tmobile isn’t just one town/city..Well I guess better late then never?

    I live in Seattle Washington and even my dusty G1 is seeing the boost. My brothers G2 is just screaming here with HSPA+! For all you Sprint Fanboys good luck in Washinton state. Almost no covereage and when you get it you can walk 10 feet and lose it.
