New T-Mobile phones

by DrShina / March 3, 2006 3:22 AM PST

Does anyone have any idea when t-mobile is finally gonna come out with some new cell phones. Theyve had the same ones on their website and in stores for ages now. Are the new ones that advanced that its taking so long or are they just taking a long time for some other reason. I'm switching to t-mobile in the middle of may and would like there to be some new phones out by then. I've also heard that new phones are due to come out in the first 3 months of this year so maybe march will be the winner. Can anyone confirm that they plan on having new ones out soon? Thanks for any info.

I use T-Mobile service and had the same feeling about their selection of phones so I looked around for answers to why thier phones are so lame. Turns out that because they are a small carrier they don't get first shot at all the cool phones on the market. Verizon and Cingular get first shot and basically tell the cell phone manufacture that they will guarentee so many sales of their phones if they can get an exclusive on the phone. That's why you see Cingular and Verizon with all the cool phones. Makes sence.

However have you see the new MDA and SDA phones that were just released for T-Mobile. They are way to cool. The MDA is super cool it's both a phone and PDA.

Lastley I use the Blackberry with the T-Mobile service and gotta tell you, the service price is cheap but the service sucks. I'm debating on staying with them or finding a new carrier.

Hope that helps

Yeah, and I hear the ads don't do it justice... you've got to hold it to appreciate how "new" it really feels.

Nextel phones getting better

Also, don't overlook the recent Nextel-Sprint merge. I think that'll help make Nextel's phones much cooler... I hear that Sprint is working on some pretty sweet things with mobile TV, etc. Just give it a few months.

Bottom line: there's no way Nextel choices suffer because of this. They can only improve.

Release schedules

In reply to: New T-Mobile phones

Cell phone companies, like other companies, schedule things on the fiscal calendar. You can usually expect new options roughly when Q1, Q2, Q3, or Q4 begins.

Okay, so when is that, benzinger? And are there always new products in each window? I don't think so.
