    November 8th. I can't really release any details but T-Mobile is going to rock it hardcore with a new way to order handsets. Okay, start the discussion, rumors and flames now:

    My guess is a rent to own/monthly payment option.

    Over 2 years it would be about $10 a month for the G1 or any other smartphone. Get people to pay $20 a month let them upgrade every year to get a new phone (resell the old phone as certified used*), and have them extend their contract to last for another 2 years. That way you retain your customers because you get them to reup before their contract is out, and what better way then to give them the latest phone.

    *or give the used phone away for free vs. paying for the same phone new (with contract)

    Am I right? Huh? Huh? Huh? :p

    what would be nice is if they allowed those of us in good standing some credit in order to buy a new phone and pay it off in 3-6 months. (with a two year extension, of course).

    I don't want to know what it is. I rather just pay for my phone, and get it over with. There is always going to be the fine print.
