    Seems like T-Mo is trying to get a leg up. Can't say I blame them.
    Saying and doing are two different things...no one wins at this game, the end result is empty promises on service and people accept it because that is what's common practice.

    No carrier is ever gonna say they are not the fastest, but again saying it and being able to provide it are two different stories.

    Carriers escape clause from providing crap speeds:
    Actual download speeds depend upon device characteristics, network, network availability and coverage levels, tasks, file characteristics, applications and other factors. Performance may be impacted by transmission limitations, terrain, in-building/in-vehicle use and capacity constraints.

    Wow. I never really bothered to pay attention to the 'fine print' as one would call it..Now that you brought that up, that actually makes me mad that they claim such high speed but know that no one will get that speed and by them writing that little disclaimer, saves their ass from false advertisement. Pretty damn stupid.

This equipment is antiquated and costs huge $$$ to upgrade. GSM carriers in the US have the worse tech when it comes to that and to upgrade all of these by 2010 is like me becoming president.

    TMO's claim is straight up false advertisement and the last time I checked that was illegal in the US.
    Word, AT&T's towers are held together with Bubblegum and Duct tape lol!

    Seriously though, spot on statements right there.

    Best April fools joke ever from Tmo; but wait, its not even April.
    I would be nice if they pull it off. But we all know that it won't happened.
    Cause ATT preaches 7.2Mps on there network; and you can barely get 4Mps. I know cause I have a data card with them. When I am on Full bars I get like 4mps. But mostly 3mps. Thats why there add said "Up to".

    Wirelessly posted (9000 OS 5.0.0.191)

    Making a comparison between Tmobile EDGE (2g if I'm not mistaken) vs 3G, believe me there is a big difference.



    That was done 8900 vs Bold vs 9700 (or what ever will be named at release date)

    So as Sunkast said any network upgrade is welcome.

    Out of all the money those bastard make from us, you would have thought that they would spend the money to do this. But they don't. The just increase the rates and make us pay for things that we shouldn't be paying for. I.e charging us for sending us a paper bill. Thats why the Euro counter parts are so far ahead of us. Cause they actually value the customers. Not like the A holes here...
