I’ve made no secret of the fact that if it weren’t for the Wilson Electronics AG Pro 75 Celluar Signal Booster, mobile phone service at my house would be pitiful; we would have likely had to incur the (possibly substantial) expense of putting in a landline. I live outside a rural community and in the middle of a ranch;Read more
Welcome to this review of the new Nokia Lumia 810 running Windows Phone 8; now leave.
Well, leave and come back after reading Judie’s extensive review of the HTC 8X Windows Phone 8.
Why? First off, it is an excellent review. Second, in that review Judie spends a good deal of time talking about Windows Phone 8. The Lumia
This week had a rough start here in New Jersey. Something like 80% of the state lost power, and we were no exception in our household. While we don’t have a landline, we do have cell phones, and were extremely grateful to never lose signal, even as cable and then electricity dropped. Our neighbor across the street wasn’t so lucky,

Magenta had a nice little press release the other day announcing nationwide unlimited 4G plans coming next month. Now we all know what carriers call “unlimited” is usually capped at about 5 GB, but this one is really an all-you-can-eat data plan. The best part is that it’s only going to cost you $20 on
Or at least that seems to be the approach T-Mobile is taking! After reporting that they managed to bleed more than 800,000 customers in the US alone during the fourth quarter of last year, T-Mobile is calling 2012 a ‘building year’, meaning they will continue to lose money and bleed customers, and that hopefully someone will care when they get
It’s no secret that if you live or work in an area that isn’t in the middle of a strong cellular coverage zone, your mobile phone signal is going to suffer. That’s one of the things I knew I would have to deal with when I moved to the ranch, but I wasn’t about to let it be the deciding
We have a bit more news on HTC’s new HTC One line coming out of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. It seems T-Mobile will be the premier launch partner in the U.S. for the HTC One S. The HTC One S will be T-Mobile’s next smartphone to take advantage of the company’s speedy 4G (HSPA+42) network. Measuring just 7.95 mmRead more

Today is a good day for T-Mobile customers. This morning the FCC listed the filing for a $1 billion transfer of Spectrum from AT&T to T-Mobile. This pretty much means to the common consumer that T-Mobile will be getting some more bandwidth to grow their GSM network. If you followed the deal last year, you know that
Poor T-Mobile. They are now the only major mobile carrier in the US not carrying the iPhone. With the release of the iPhone 4S, now AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint have the iPhone 4 and 4S. Which leaves T-Mobile as the odd man out.
But T-Mobile is trying to fight back. First, they issued a press release stating that they would
So the day has finally come where the official announcement has been made for the Samsung Galaxy S II to hit US soil. The press conference is under way right now (Dan is there as I type), and just as we thought details are slim. A 4.5″ SAMOLED+ screen is destined for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, while Verizon is holding

What drives me nuts about mobile carriers these days is that I truly believe they are using new technology against us. Maybe you think I’m out of my mind, but it’s really easy to see the common trend happening with 3 of the 4 big carriers in the US. As mobile broadband and equipment evolve,
(If you aren’t familiar with the ongoing issues Francis has had with his G2X, be sure to see his initial explanation here: Original G2X Screen Bleed Article)
Last week I wrote up a quick post about sending in my G2X to T-Mobile due to excessive screen bleeding issues. After receiving a new phone, returning a phone, and two
LG recently brought all their IPS goodness to Android with the Introduction of the T-Mobile G2X. Before getting this phone I was happily running a HD2 that still holds a spot on my shelf as my number one backup phone. With more dual core superphones launching by the minute, LG really had not dropped a flagship into the Android Community.

This year has been all about 4G. ’4G’ refers to the newest high-speed data transfer protocol used by cell phone carriers for smartphones. 4G coverage is spotty at best no matter which carrier your contract is with. Every carrier now has some form of 4G, and as we all know some are (for now) much better
T-Mobile just announced a very sweet Android phone that has features that are making a few of us here at Gear Diary stand up and take notice. What makes it such an attractive phone? Read on for details.
The T-Mobile G2x (by LG), not to be confused with the T-Mobile G2 (which has a hardware keyboard), is definitely an interesting

T-Mobile keeps on reminding us rabidly loyal fans why we love their network so much. In addition to announcing the T-Mobile G2x with Google, they announced a partnership with Audi, but most importantly, they are further enhancing their 4G infrastructure, as they said they would.
T-Mobile announced that they are planning on doubling their 4G
Very exciting tablet details coming from T-Mobile at CES!
Phillip Humm, T-Mobile CEO & president and CEO and Dr. JS Park, president and CEO of LG introduced the G-Slate from LG & T-Mobile.
T-Mobile has fastest data in top 10 markets according to Nielsen.
900K 4G devices sold.
T-Mobile is focused on affordable smartphones and tablets, aggressive plans and pricing,
This looks pretty spectacular … Today LG and T-Mobile announced a new tablet, the Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) powered T-Mobile G-Slate, which will be “the companies’ first 4G tablet in the United States powered by the latest version of Android.
The tablet-optimized Android 3.0 operating system was designed from the ground up for devices with larger screen sizes, and addresses the
To tether or not to tether, what to do? There has been a long-standing debate and rather good argument over whether tethering your phone is legal, ethical, or financially worth it. Most platforms today have programs available that allow you to tether a wired or wireless device to you phone without buying another data plan. Most wireless carriers do offer
One of my biggest gripes with cellphone service is that when I’m at home, I have no signal. I have no home phone, so I completely rely on my cellphone when anyone is trying to reach me, and there is nothing worse than paying for big dollar data plan while not having a good connection at your home. Often timesRead more
The T-Mobile G2 is the first true successor to the phone that started it all, the T-Mobile G1, over two years ago. I have been carrying two Android devices (a Google Nexus One, and a T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide) because there has not been a single Android device that met my needs. Does the T-Mobile G2, with its increased storage

So there has been lots of hoopla around the web concerning 3G, 4G, LTE, Wimax, HSPA+(+). T-Mobile has been behind a lot of the mess and continues to anger other networks with their promising speeds and their comparison to 4G. First to get things straight understand that 4G, HSPA+, and LT are all theoretically different.
If you were grandfathered into a low-priced T-Mobile data plan (remember the $5.99/month deal?), if you don’t mind EDGE speeds, and if don’t want to pay an extra $30/month to use the AT&T iPad data plan, this DIY hack may be just what you have been looking for. Granted, you won’t be able to pop your T-Mo SIM back into
We’ve covered doubleTwist before as a way to sync all your media content across multiple smartphones, including BlackBerry, Palm’s webOS devices and Android. Now it looks like T-Mobile and doubleTwist have officially partnered to simplify music management for Android users and may bundle the application with select handsets, including the Fender MyTouch 3G.
While iTunes is tied to iPhones and
This has been my first trip to CES. I had NO idea what to expect. Well, to quote the Greatful Dead, “what a long strange trip its been!”
When I was packing to come, I wasn’t sure what I was going to need, especially in the gear department. I consulted the all knowing Judie, and she gave me some helpful
