    Tmobile's site has the G1 now to pre order, but its not 179 like they said, its 299. I even called tmobile to get the 179 price. They said it's listed at 299 no one said 179 they said.


    BS if u ask me

    Is that the price if you aren't qualified to upgrade? The $179 may be new or full upgrade price.

    If it's a 2-year contract, you don't get full upgrade status until after the 22nd month. I got my first plan back in Dec 06. I can't fully upgrade until Oct 21st (convenient!!!!).

    also

    this pre order is for pre existing customers only, so new customers can't order the phone or get the 179 price.

    They told me on the phone that anyone looking to pre-order would have to pay the $299 price, but if you wait for the national launch on Oct 22nd, you get it for the lower price.

    yea 299 is if ur not at ur full upgrade price yet, which probably most of us arnt. Mine's October 10th, but in store they'll give you the 179 regardless. They are lame online and follow the rules.

    No contract price was 400. Mine was 211 with tax/activation.

    35 bucks a month for data and unlimited texts. I think thats 5 more than At&t was charging

    limited stock for pre-order. once they sell out, you have to wait until the 22nd and then go to a t-mobile retail location in a 3g market.

    you were told wrong, or you heard wrong. $179 for people eligible for an upgrade, $299 for a contract extension, $399 full price.

    nope. AT&T charges $29.99 for unlimited data and $20 for unlimited texts. grand total is $50 for what you're getting on T-Mobile for only $35.

    t-mobile is only charging what they've always been charging: $20 for unlimited internet and $15 for unlimited text. with your unlimited internet, you also get unlimited hotspot data at any of their hotspot locations on any wi-fi connected device. i've been a subscriber to the unlimited internet for $20/mo for 3 years now to support various winmo phones i've had as well as keep my laptop connected when i travel.
