T-Mobile BAD

Oh, T-Mobile. What ever are we going to do with you? So you're selling the Nexus 4 on contract. That's crazy enough. And then you got folks thinking it would have your snazzy Wifi calling. Which of course it was never going to have. And now your damn product page for the Nexus 4 is showing it as having 16 gigabytes of internal storage, plus it's expandable up to 64GB with a microSD card.

Only, it doesn't have a microSD card, T-Mobile. It never had one. And it never will. Perhaps you've heard the legions of Android fans bitching about that for a couple weeks now. No? Well, we can't help you there.

But somebody owes @aemaffei an apology.

(And by the way, T-Mobile, "Android Market" was replaced with "Google Play" months ago.)

I'm convinced that carriers (or maybe just their marketing people) are completely clueless about the phones they're selling.

Yea we only have like 15+ different models, each with 3+ trims, each with 4 to 5 different packages on it, but noooo you know more about the 1 car you're coming in for, well no wonder you've spent weeks researching that one car. We have to know all of the trims, for all of the models, in our inventory for this year and last years models, plus the ones in the used lot that are all makes and models so we can answer questions that you ALREADY know the answers to...and it's SHOPPERS like you that come in, demanding below invoice on our vehicles, and demanding top dollar YOU KNOW your trade-in isn't worth (since you know the head gaskets are blown but God forbid you mention that to us) that make it tough for car salesmen to make a living...the same type of person that goes to a dealership, negotiates a real great deal, then walks away with the numbers to walk into another dealership and unshamefuly say "Beat this". Hell I've had the guy come in with the borrowed vehicle from the other dealership saying that! Hey heres a math equation for you, as you know we are commision based, whats a % of 0$ (no gross) when we sell it that cheap? Yea, nothing is right.

tmobile can suck it ive had 5 lines for years and all are out of contract the best they would do was give me $200 to reup all 5 lines screw you i took my shit and went to straight talk i see no difference other then saving $150 a month

This site makes me crack up with it's daily bais favoring pissy ass Verizon. Get over it the Lg Nexus 4 is on Tmobile either buy it or move on. Tmobile could care less if people on Verizon doesn't want to switch to Tmobile they are doing well. What this site needs to be posting is the fact that Tmobile pushed out jellybean for the Galaxy S3 on Tmobile. What happened to mighty Verizon and it's update for jellybean??? Last again as usual. That's why Verizon sucks elephant ass and it's crappy bloatware infested battery draining LTE network is useless. If Verizon had a clue on updating the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon more decently in the first place they wouldn't be in this situation to begin with. Verizon pissed all over the Galaxy Nexus and Google didn't appreciate it and neither did people who brought that crappy device on the biggest overrated network ever. having the Verizon Galaxy Nexus was the WORST EXPERIENCE EVER for all Nexus devices ever made. It launched with android 4.0.3 ice cream sandwich December 15th 2011 and got it's first update on June 5th 2012 to 4.0.4 and that was a stock device they couldn't update. Verizon is garbage and I personally hope they NEVER SEE ANOTHER NEXUS DEVICE EVER.. So now Phil post something more important like WHERE IS THE JELLYBEAN UPDATE FORTTHE GALAXY S3 ON VERIZON???? Tmobile and Sprint Galaxy S3 already has it...

You are acting like we are all majority owners in Verizon or on the Board of Directors. If you want to make your point heard, you might want to tell it to VERIZON. No one here cares what you said, because we can't change anything for the better. What is your point in ranting here?

Hahaha you wouldn't know the truth if it slapped you in the face! You said rooting was for "2plus year old devices" despite at the time owning an Evo 4G which had a HUGE root community behind it.
You said Verizon's *low* frequency LTE doesn't penetrate buildings well, when in fact it's *high* frequencies, like Sprint's failed Wimax, that are like that.
You said the processor in the HTC Sensation was "crappier" than the one found in your "legendary" Evo 3D, even after quite a few people (myself included) provided evidence that proved you dead wrong.
You continually insulted me about previously owning a "useless" Samsung Moment (a CDMA only phone), but would claim I had it on Simple Mobile (which runs off of T-Mobile's GSM/HSPA+ network), Metro PCS, Virgin Mobile and a myriad of other smaller regional carriers when it was only ever sold on Sprint.

Truth? You know nothing about truth.

"with it's daily bais favoring pissy ass Verizon" 1. It's spelled "bias" you idiot. Surely your "pimp slapping" SGSIII with autocorrect would have fixed that? 2. You're one to talk about bias. When you owned any of HTC's products, you went around screaming your head off about how the company was "BOSS" and how much it was "pissing on" "Samsuck". Then you got a Galaxy Nexus and you wouldn't shut up about how "stock Android is king". After that, you got a SGSIII and yet again started preaching, only this time about how "perfect" Samsung's products were. You wouldn't know bias if it were a person and introduced itself to you.

"Tmobile could care less if people on Verizon doesn't want to switch to Tmobile they are doing well." If being the 4th largest carrier in terms of subscribers with the 4th largest network is "doing well", then sure, they're doing just fine. But not nearly as well as Verizon or even AT&T.

" and it's crappy bloatware infested battery draining LTE network is useless." I believe the thousands (if not millions) of people who use LTE would beg to differ about that "useless" bit. Moron.

"If Verizon had a clue on updating the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon more decently in the first place they wouldn't be in this situation to begin with." Says the idiot who, until recently, didn't know how to manually attempt to update Android, and who was "looking into" rooting his Galaxy Nexus for upwards of 2 *months*.

"So now Phil post something more important like WHERE IS THE JELLYBEAN UPDATE FORTTHE GALAXY S3 ON VERIZON?" That's "more important" than pointing out T-Mobile's glaring mistake? What a joke. Don't like what the writers are posting? Don't read it idiot.

What's even better is, he talked crap about Verizon all through his HTC/Sprint days, but as soon as he got the Galaxy Nexus with big red, he was ranting and raving about how "BOSS" LTE was, for the first few months anyway. Somewhere along the line, he started (again) saying how "crappy" Verizon's "battery draining" LTE was, even while he still had service with them. And now that T-Mobile's slated to get LTE sometime next year, he's raving about how great it will be. He's a total hypocrite.

Isn't this that guy who was talking about his 50 GB of internal Dropbox on the S3 last night?

If you think this site, and more specifically Phil, is so "bias", why don't you go spout your completely insane, melodramatic, bullshit somewhere else?Your just butt hurt that your beloved T-Mobile got caught doing something stupid. All the big carriers do things like this. So get over yourself, go get some really good therapy, and stop living vicariously through your carrier of choice.

Wow, is a major carrier like this really that clueless about one of the hottest phones to be released this holiday season? Who's running their marketing department over there? Idiots...

Bummer, I might actually pay $150 more for an SD slot...

And if it really had the Android Market in place of Google Play, well that would seal the deal :)

Hey Squiddy. I can't remember the website to save my life (of course it wasn't this one) but I saw you and Richard going back and forth and I thought I was going to die laughing. It had to have been like six months ago. That guy has got something SERIOUSLY wrong with him. HILARIOUS!

1 - Unlock and Root
2 - Install Stickman
3 - USBOTG to MicroSD card reader with 64GB MicroSD inside
4 - ???
5 - Expanded to 64GB via MicroSD!

They don't lie.

suggested retail 500$ but with the 300$ discount its only 200$. Thank you tmobile! Thank you! Also...its going to be really neat in the future when smart phones don't include alarm clock on the features list...its almost like listing tires as a feature on a car. Anyways, here's hoping they get 42mb expanded beyond chicago by a few more miles this year...

T-mobile has interns (or homeless hacks) who just copy old ads and support documents to make new ones. Only they forget to proofread and copy check. You'd think they put their brainiacs in technical support, but,... um....

The Nexus 4 appears to be a phenomenal phone, and I can't wait to get one for myself. I use Pandora for music and Netflix for movies, so I don't need a big micro-SD card. And now that I've got a truly unlimited service plan (including 4G data), this unlocked GSM phone is exactly the hardware upgrade that I need! Here's a quick 1-min video of the no-contract plan that I'm enjoying - and hope to use the Nexus 4 on soon! www.PenniesOverDollars.com
