    well i wouldn't say i fell for the 4g but my 100% free (no mail in rebate) mytouch4g will be here on wed. gotta love tmobile customer service! they've really hooked me up over the last year or so. check out this list. not the best line up of androids, but hey, i didn't pay a dime and i still have each phone...no trade ins.

    my free android phone count (since Nov. 2009):
    -behold 2 (my free replacement for behold 1)
    -cliq (wife's free replacement for sidekick crash)
    -mytouch slide (my free replacement for the behold 2)
    -mytouch slide (wife's free replacement cliq)
    -mytouch 4g (free with contract extension for customer loyalty)

    this is not meant to come off as braging, its really more of a shout out to tmobile for their service! this customer is very satisfied!

    Wow... I would totally take a free 4G over the Nexus S. All T-mobile would give me was my upgrade back so I am fully eligible to get the Nexus S for $200. I'm not even sure if the Nexus S is HSPA+ compatible and frankly don't care. I get plenty of speed on my Slide on 2.1 so i'm sure my Nexus on 2.3 with that Hummingbird processor will surely fly. I guess I will just have to go back to using my TomTom for GPS. :D

    I must be blackballed on T-mobile's costumer service because I can no longer speak to any americans and have less than a 20 minute wait on hold.

    believe me i didn't think they would do it either, in fact, i was shocked! but, if you work high enough up the csr ladder and you will eventually get what you want just takes persistence. to be honest i don't think they will do this for me again with in this contract. they even pointed out to me all they have done this year for me this time when i talked to them so i'm pretty sure its starting to get to be more of a problem but hey, at least they got me locked down for another 2 year contract. they'll make their money back over that time.

    I am on my 14th Slide :eek:

    And the only alternative exchanges ever offered to me were the Garminphone, the Cliq, and a Blackberry Bold.......... basically cancelled devices.

    I've a crappy history over the past 6 months...

    Had a BB 8320 that I upgraded to a free BH2, went thru 4 of those! Then they finally gave my a 3G Slide for free. So far I'm doing ok with that, but we'll see how it goes over the next couple months...Maybe I'll get a newer upgrade as well :)

    The Slide is a great phone as long as you get one that is built solid... which I have'nt found yet but I hear about it lol.

    I do really love my slide. So far it seems to be a solid phone. Moves quick, don't have to reboot it very often, and it seems smooth going. Hopefully that will get better if T-Mobile their heads outta there butt and gets the 2.2 update out to us.

    I'll have to look at the Nexus S tho, haven't heard to much about it.

    You and me both its like a galaxy s with no touchwiz, a front facing camera, and gingerbread.

    Only downside is no 4G and no expandable memory.

    No 4G is a downside, but the expandable memory is fine with me. I have an 8GB card in my Slide 3G and am only using about 1.5 GB of that...

    Does it have broken GPS like the other Galaxy phones? :)

    My gf has a MyTouch Slide (which is why I check this subforum, to see when 2.2 is ready). She's dropped it so many times that it's become a running joke, but the thing just won't break. She must've gotten one of the "solid" ones, because aside from a couple of scuffs, it looks and feels good as new.

    The GPS on my phone works great when I use. It locates me pretty quickly and is pretty accurate.

    other then a bad battery my MTS had been great for me.. I just wish my G1 didn't die .. I would have waited till the end of this year to get a new phone.. Which would have been the N-S or the G-2 ....

    They should have just released the MTS with 2.2 but I don't know why those higher ups at T-Mobile where thinking...

    I think if by Jan 10 I don't get an update. MTS will go for sale and I will get either a G-2 or Nexus -S ..

    If i hadn't just upgraded from the BH2 to the MTS then i would have held out for the nexus s as well

    Tick tock, t-mobile. It's almost the end of the year, where's that update? Hmmm?

    Well, I've been using froyo/espresso for a few days now on my mytouch 4g and i have to say its better, but not that much better. Nothing huge comes with froyo really (besides wifi calling and wifi hotspot), and apps to sd is a joke for now since most apps don't support it yet. Still I do think its worth it overall so I hope for you guys (and my slide's resell value) it does come soon. If not do what I did...try to get a free 4g or at least ask for upgrade pricing (results may vary) and join the 1ghz+ revolution.

    So 2 days before I go to get my Nexus S I call into T-mobile and tell them my touchscreen on my Slide is once again on the fritz.

    And now after 15 exchanges they decide to send me a decent exchange.

    So now their will be a brand new G2 on ebay :D

    Yeah, I'm doubting this update will get here "before the end of the year." I kinda doubt it will be a Christmas gift. Maybe a new years eve gift, but I doubt that as well. When will the T-Mobile people say: "You'll get it before the end of January"? ...
  25. trav2001

    Yup. I agree...i dont think it will get here anytime soon :(
