T-Mobile Services

  • High-speed data connectivity via T-Mobile's 3G network: In addition to its quad-band GSM connectivity, this phone is also compatible with T-Mobile's UMTS/HSDPA 3G network, which operates on the 1700/2100 MHz AWS spectrum. This phone is designed to automatically connect to the best available network (3G or GSM/GPRS/EDGE) to provide faster data speeds when accessing the Web.

    In areas where the 3G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the via T-Mobile's EDGE network (which stands for "Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution"). This high-speed, mobile data and Internet access technology is fast enough to support a wide range of advanced data services (with average data speeds between 75-135Kbps), including full picture and video messaging, high-speed color Internet access, and email on the go.

    While this phone is optimized for use with T-Mobile's high-speed 3G network, many of its functions will also work well on the moderate-speed EDGE network. If you plan to access the Internet extensively on your phone, 3G network coverage may serve you best.

    Activities that work well on EDGE or 3G networks:

    • Email, instant messaging, and texting
    • Downloading ringtones, CallerTunes, wallpaper, light data files
    • Sending photographs via e-mail or picture messaging

    Activities that work best on a 3G network:

    • Viewing content-heavy websites (lots of images or videos playing)
    • Viewing YouTube and other video files (they will play on EDGE, but require loading time)
    • Uploading large files (photos, videos, presentations) to sharing websites
    • Downloading large files from an e-mail or a website

  • myFaves Capable: This phone is compatible with T-Mobile's myFaves service, which allows you to call up to five of your most common contacts--on any network, even landlines--without using any of your minutes. Learn more about myFaves from T-Mobile.

I finally figured out what HTC stands for--Hate This Cellphone! This thing has more bugs than a beehive and it is seriously bad news. I've so many dropped calls and calls that do not even go through due to this faulty phone.

Keep in mind this is my second one. I traded the first one in under warranty. When I use the calculator it starts putting in numbers that we previously used if I just press a number key. I press 9 to save messages, it shows 7 and deletes them. To add insult to injury, Tmobile nickles-and-dimes customers by having them buy a 3.5mm cord to connect a headset. They could've just made it 3.5mm like every phone on the market but I guess Tmobile figures it doesn't make enough money selling the phone outright so it must resort to jacking you on ridiculous things!

Have to agree with Steve's review. This phone is so bad that I paid $200 to get out of my plan early. The first phone would drop data and voice service completely on a regular basis. I sent that in for a replacement, but 3G was still a joke, and 2G wasn't always available either.

Salespeople in my town told me 3G was available. Multiple calls to tech support produced information ranging from, "3G was never started in your area" to "There's a tower within 3 miles of your house". My stereo Bluetooth headset didn't work most of the time. Etc, etc, etc.

I was a customer for so many years I've lost count (+10?), but this phone was so bad I had to get out, and the service was so poor I didn't even want to stay with T-Mobile any longer either.
