Question T-Mobile pledges to Android Users, "No Phones left behind".

T-Mobile pledges to Android Users, "No Phones left behind".

This appears to be a new development. I wonder what it means for us Behold II users.

Exactly.

And T-mobile needs to prove it.

They can pledge all they want but Verizon and Sprint phones are being updated while T-mobile customers are sitting and waiting.

I will not renew my contract for the MT3GS or Galaxy S only to be sitting on 2.1 or 2.2 while the other carriers are updating to 2.3, 2.5, or 3.0.

To me it looks like T-mobile is getting more greedy than Sprint and Verizon because while Verizon and Sprint are spending money to get updates out T-mobile is spending money hyping up a sale to get more people buying their outdated lineup of phones.

I hear you there man! I'm on T-Mobile service with a Nexus One and couldn't be happier. I'll continue to use Tmobile because they are the cheapest, just gonna be buying my phones off contract. And I hope that's gonna be a Nexus 2 or something similar!

After 2.2 froyo, it goes right to Android 3.0 gingerbread. Which is rumored to be released sometime by the end of this year.

Maybe we should use this information

2010 World’s Most Ethical Companies | Ethisphere? Institute


World's Most Ethical Companies includes T-Mobile. To keep that, they should make sure all their Android phones get updated.

Or make sure anyone who bought the phone after being promised 2.x gets a partial refund, credit/discount on a different phone, etc.

umm more info on this topic?


I know if i was talking to a tmo rep, and i was complaining, and all the rep said was "the issue is not dead yet", I wouldn't say "Wow that is the best answer I have ever heard, now let me hang up"

I would say "what do you mean that the issue is not dead yet?" and they would give me some more info.

Does anyone have the full text/promise from T-Mobile for their "No Phone Left Behind" pledge?

I cheer them for making such a pledge; however, in the case of the Behold II, Samsung is the one holding the cards, not T-Mobile.

The pledge is a step in the right direction. The implication is that there will be *no* phone left behind and yet, the Behold 2 is not pictured in that memo. I suppose the update that is expected this week will settle it for us B2 owners once and for all.
