Google to T-Mobile : Your 3G Network is Poor !!

By: t-marco January 26th, 2010

Google and T-Mobile have been working on fixing the 3G problem on the Nexus One. As you know, the Nexus One has some issues trying to connect to T-Mobile’s 3G network, jumping from 3G to EDGE like crazy.

Google has completed its research into the issue and is laying the blame at the feet of the weak 3G network ran by T-Mobile. A bug was also found in the software of the handset during the investigation and a fix is incoming to address the issue.

Take a moment about this.. if you have a G1 and a Nexus 1, and both are capable to work on T-Mobile’s 3G network and only one phone (the G1) can connect to it.. do you blame the network or the other phone? ..

Tell us what you think …..

    I am on my 3rd G1 so is it the Anroid OS, HTC hardware or T-Mobile. I think its T-Mobile's network personally.

    Due to the fact that a G1 sitting next to an N1 has no problems while the N1 bounces from network to network like some sort of trampoline junkie I think the blame lays more on the software/hardware of the N1.

    That is why google is going to launch an update next week to fix the bug

    1.the networkk should already have this problem fixed
    N
    2.the nexus 1 isnt even sold by exclusively tmobile
    well idk to my knowledge but thats what ive heard
    idk….lol
    the phone still rocks though

    I don't see how it can be T-mobile when as stated, two 3G capable phones are side-by-side and both are on T-Mobile and one is getting 3G and one is not. I have also seen stories of people taking the SIM out of a G1 that is getting 3G and they put it in a Nexus One and , drum roll please, no 3G. Also let's no forget that there are lots of other people in lots of other countries that are not using T-mobile that are having the exact same problem.

    Dont' have a N1, but when I had a G1, I never had a problem connecting to 3G.

    A friend of mine has a myTouch 3g and he never has complained about 3G issues.. if the problem is T-Mo network, like google says.. why Google is launching a new patch to fix the bug?

    My Nokia N900 has never had a problem on T-Mobile's network since I started using it a month ago. In fact instead of switching between 3g to 2.5g it switches from 3g to 3.5g occaisionally. Nothing to complain about here…

    GOOGLE IS JUST TRYING TO BLAME TMOBILE, SO THEY WON'T LOOK STUPID. I USED TO HAVE THE G1 AND NEVER HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE 3G NETWORK!! IM USING THE GREAT TOUCH PRO2 NOW, AND STILL HAVE NO 3G PROBLEMS! MY MOM HAS THE BEHOLD AND NO PROBLEMS WITH 3G EITHER. IT IS GOOGLE'S PROBLEM, NOT TMOBILE. EVERYONE GIVE TMOBILE A CHANGE, JUST BECAUSE ONE PHONE HAS ISSUES, DON'T DISH THEIR NETWORK. JUST LIKE MARCO SAID, IF GOOGLE WAS NOT TO BLAME, WHY IS THERE A SOFTWARE FIX?

    Exactly! I go between 3G and 3.5G all the time on my N900. In one small area of the city I drop drown to 2.5G or 2G. It may be some areas have weak signal but the phone has to learn to deal with the signal that is out there and not hop arround. Something as simple as a twenty second delay between displaying jumps between 2G and 3G changes would make it look more stable even it if wasn't more stable. That might cut out a good part of the whining.

    Now if only I could get a connection that was faster than .87 Mb/s when on 3.5G …

    I have the G1 and my wife has the behold. I've never had problems on either one.

    It's T-Mobile. If I'm outside (or near outside) it works great, but if I go to the center of my building it's all edge.

    I'd say it can be a combination of a poorly built 3G network (in some areas), weak radio (HTC) or bad software (Google) causing issues.

    This device may have attracted many people who formerly were on larger 3G networks and they might happen to live in fringe areas of 3G's coverage.

    Don't let T-Mobile get off without a little blame. They were last to get 3G and although they got themselves up to 200 million POPS they are still far behind their larger competitors.

    Once everyone else gets 4G T-Mobile will still be battling a mostly GPRS network with 3G only in some populated areas. Sad.
