    So ur problem is getting phones that are out of date? What exactly makes them out of date? I don't get this. I'd gladly wait a year for the phone's price to drop in half rather than be the first to get it and pay the premium. Why do I need the newest tech as soon as it's available? To show off and brag? What's gonna be out of date about the bold in a year? When the Curve came out it was just a new BB with year old phone tech.

    I wouldn't switch to any other service provider if I were you. T-Mobile has excellent customer service compared to others. I currently own a Blackberry Curve 8320 and it's a great phone. I used to have the Pearl in white and after a year I decided to go full keyboard. T-Moblie is actually one of the first service providers to offer the 4.5 OS upgrade. With the upgrade my Curve now has a video camera, upgraded browser, voice recording, and its even faster than before.

    Gee Hamp, tell us what you really think :-) and THAT is why I would never be a customer service rep. For the record, I like T-Mobile and you're right about a lot of what you said. T-Mo gotme my phone I for one will always be grateful. They do have good customer service so YES, some of us do appreciate you. Now CHILL already.

    And the sidekick is a locked out, underperforming, crappy device... should not even be considered a smartphone sorry, but that argument really does not help TMobile

    i agree about the sidekick being a horrible phone...i had that garbage before i got my curve.

    but i think their original point was that even with that, tmobile still has in some way managed to properly market something that has obviously reached the masses (the fact that these "masses" are mostly teenagers is irrelevant for right now) and it's STILL going strong. there are people who were clawing for one of those sidekick LX thingamajiggers that came out this summer.

    I see what they're saying about how people up and leave a company because they want the "New" phones that are out. But seriously, the way they just handled the situation is very immature and unprofessional. Thanks for making t-mobile reps look like complete morons now. They need to calm down, think up some more educated words, then maybe express himself in a mature manner. Because if that's how he treats his customers, I'm sure his commission checks really SUCK.

    That said, The BB Flip DOES suck. I have one, along with a Curve 8320, Pearl 8100 and pearl 8120. It feels very un-sturdy just by picking it up and it's nothing "special" at all. They could've done more to it. It's just not as high-quality as I'd expect it to be. Everyone is entitled to their opinions though!

    And, it's kind of a dumb (for lack of a better word) idea to switch to AT&T just because you like the current "hot phone". Because you'll just wander right back to Tmo or another carrier once they launch something better. It's called Patience people! Geezz.....

    ETA: I did own a Sidekick SLIDE and it was wonderful! I had the Sidekick III and original sidekick as well, and didn't like them. I thought they'd fall apart in my hand! But the Slide really was a good phone. Just sayin'.

    Those "New and Cool" phones we tend to get aggrivated about, by not having the chance to get our hands on them, are bid on by other companies because they need them to attract new customers. They don't care about offering the "best" phones to their current customer base, they only care about the new customers being attracted by the newest release phones. People see those phones and immediately want that carrier; while ignoring important things like cellular service, pricing, and customer service.

    -My T-mobile contract was up 4 months ago and I almost switched to Sprint, becasue they had the black 8330 for 74.99 + a free 2 gb MD. I didn't have any problem with t-mobile, but when compared to the T-Mo 8320 priced at $199 after rebates (about 3 montha ago), it just made the Sprint 8330 look so much better. Then I realized that they are just a horrible company and I was being blinded by a flashy phone with a cheap price tag. Oh yeah, Sprint is currently trading at US $3.37...LOL

    Gotta love Corporate America and how they prey on how people go nuts for the latest and greatest. When whatever they use still works just fine. Pretty much this goes for anything.

    I'll be going on 2 years of having my 8700g and I just plan on getting a new body for it, getting that scratch proof protector for it. Heck just recently bought an extended life battery for it. So it's gonna be my phone until it officially stops working.

    I agree with pretty much every when they say the pearl flip is lame. I have played with them a few times and they just feel cheap. Definately not RIM's bet offering ever, but it is nice to see them thinking out of the box.

    I like the concept of the "flip" and think it appeals to a younger dynamic (like T-Mo's consumer base). But I feared that it would be "cheap". If the form is successful and there us an interest then maybe RIM will go back to the drawing board for more. I am a hardcore blackberry user and prefer the Pearl, I like the size. I've been tempted by QWERTY, but I like my "pocketable" pearl. I would consider a sturdy, reliable flip blackberry...

    I agree TMO is better than ATT. i also heard 3G battery sucks big time!!! TMO service is better and more customer focused
