The end of T-Mobile?

Posted May 03, 2012 at 2:12 pm in Threads > Smartphones & Tablets

Just finished watching the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S III, and there was no mention of there being an HSPA+ version being released in North America, only LTE versions. Seeing as how that is the network that T-Mobile runs on, I’m putting two and two together and discerning that T-Mobile would be getting it. Why is it that T-Mobile seems to be passing on all of the best phones lately. No HTC One X, no Galaxy Nexus, no droid Razr, no Galaxy Note, and no iPhone.

They have the worst lineup of phones of the four major carriers in the United States and it looks like it is only getting worse. What’s the point of staying with T-Mobile of you have to settle for second rate phones? No wonder people are leaving this carrier in droves. Maybe I’m being pessimistic, but T-Mobile has fallen off a lot since they announced the merger with AT&T and I don’t see it improving.

    Try and pay attention to the news more. Galaxy Note is indeed coming to TMO

    Unlocked nexus is available at google play and works on T-Mobile…

      It even includes HSPA+21 support for T-Mobile and AT&T!

    I’ve read the about the galaxy note in rumors, NOT news. There were rumors that T-Mobile was getting the Galaxy Nexus and HTC One X as well. Where are they? I wanted the 32 GB version of the Galaxy Nexus. And I don’t have money to be paying for unsubsidized phones.

      I thought it was cheaper to get an unsubsidized phone for T-Mobile and save on the phone plan, ESPECIALLY when that unsubsidized cost is only $400! Am I mistaken?

        u r right. i bought it for my wife and she is on $30 monthly plan. it is cheaper this way.

    For T-Mobile customers like myself it’s win/win. I feel that I can’t afford NOT to buy unsubsidized, since my cost over 2 years is a LOT lower than w/The Big Three. In the meantime, the more customers that leave the more bandwidth for me…and eventually T-Mobile will get acquired by someone just for their assets. Use your head and do the math. On 3 lines, I’m saving $2500+ over 2 years compared to AT&T, Verizon or Sprint AFTER buying out of my AT&T contract AND purchases all new hardware.
