After May 31st and through June 30th, customers can still export their personal data directly from the Sidekick service through our enhanced Web tool on myT-Mobile.com, even though they can no longer access their data on the service directly from their device.

Nokia RM-626 aka C9 passed FCC with multi 3G bands, including T-Mo and AT&T

By: t-marco May 25th, 2011

Today FCC just passed the new Nokia C9 phone. There were so many rumors about his phone running WM 7, but its not. The Symbian^3 OS is dated April 2010, so it’s quite an old build by current standards but it’s the hardware that looks the most intriguing. For starters we’ve got a nicely sculpted body with a slide out full QWERTY keyboard. The screen looks like it’s a spacious 3.5-inches in size, then there is that 8-Megapixel camera on the back, which will be great for snaps and video.

The Nokia C9 will feature a front camera too for video chat, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooh, and OVi store, Quadband GSM, 850, 1700, 1900, and 2100 3G bands.

Stay tune for more information about the Nokia C9

T-Mobile will double HSPA+ speed in 55 markets this month

By: t-marco May 24th, 2011

 

T-Mobile is planning to announce Tuesday that Chicago is one of more than 50 markets where the carrier is upgrading its 4G network to deliver higher speeds.
“We can honestly say that customers in the Chicago area are going to see their top speeds being doubled,” Linda Murrain, vice president and general manager of the Chicago area for T-Mobile, told the Tribune in an interview.

Among the markets to soon get the hefty boost are Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland and San Francisco. These metro areas join three markets in which the carrier already announced the high-speed support in March: Las Vegas, New York and Orlando.

The company says it plans to deliver a total of 25 4G-capable devices in 2011 and expects 140 million Americans to have access to the up-to 42Mbps theoretical bandwidth by mid-2011.

WM7 Music Player style on your Android

By: t-marco May 23rd, 2011

Federico Cardenas, the developer of Launcher Pro, has designed a new option to play your favorite tunes.  The look and functionality of the Zune player is present(alpha status). The only thing it’s really lacking so far is a name, and obviously any Zune software integration. I have tried this apk and really works very smooth, it downloads covers and artists backgrounds via wifi or cellular network.
