T-Mobile announces $1 per day service, evades 3G launch rumors
T-Mobile won't confirm it is launching a 3G network on May 1 but it is offering a $1 per day prepaid plan.

We've also heard some major dish from the T-Mobile rumor mill. The Boy Genius first reported yesterday that T-Mobile would launch its promised 3G service tomorrow in New York, followed by up to 20 cities nationwide. Though a May Day event would fit the that T-Mobile dropped at the GSMA World Congress, we're not so confident that a May 1 date is accurate. Naturally, T-Mobile won't confirm if the news is legit, but if tomorrow really is the magic date we just think we would have heard more gossip by this time. Color us skeptical, but we're also doubting that the rumor T-Mobile will launch 3G for voice service only. Really, what would be the point?
We're more inclined to believe Fierce Wireless, which suggested that the announcement will come by next Thursday, May 8 when T-Mobile reports its second quarter earnings. T-Mobile is the only major U.S. carrier to lack a 3G network.
