        trimmed the T-Mobile SIM card to fit the phone in the case of iPhone 4s, and are actively using them on a network that doesn?t support<a href="http://www.titsuganda.org/"><font color="light&amp;height"> about it</font></a> is bank that <a href="http://www.filthy-lucre.net/"><font color="light&amp;height">website</font></a> attacked from the <a href="http://www.conpacoop.com/"><font color="light&amp;height">site support</font></a> from any soldier <a href="http://www.poetryetcetc.com/"><font color="light&amp;height">site</font></a> to the light <a href="http://www.blackspotnews.com/"><font color="light&amp;height">home page</font></a> is great them.

        That is nothing short of amazing, and proves how popular the iPhone is compared to other smartphones.

        These unlocked iPhones don?t get 3G or 4G data speeds because the radios in the phones do not work on the T-Mobile network,

        which makes this even more amazing.

        Apparently these iPhone owners get what they need from the phones without support from the carrier.

        While you can argue that a few T-Mobile customers might do this not knowing what they are getting into, it?s hard to believe that over a million folks did this without thinking things through.

        While T-Mobile doesn?t handle the iPhone currently, maybe that will change if the AT&T merger gets approved.

        Imagine what these customers will think if the phones work on the network as designed.

        Just about a year ago I posted my Windows Phone 7 guide on the technical preview and since then I have posted many articles on this operating system, the hardware, and the tens of thousands of available applications.

        I have been using Windows Phone 7.5 (aka Mango) on a Samsung Focus for several days and as you can read in this guide to Windows Phone 7.5

        I dont put much credence in these outlandish long term forecasts in a market that moves way too fast to accurately you can pick up hardware for free with a new contract. Granted, there will be updated hardware released when Mango hits the street, but from what I have seen so far with Mango on existing hardware it runs as well as Windows Phone 7. I personally have an HTC HD7 and Dell Venue Pro, but will be upgrading to a Nokia Windows Phone when I can because I want a WP device with<a href="http://www.pcloshwdb.com/"><font color="light&height"> pclos hwdb</font></a> a decent<a href="http://ipadbagblog.com/"><font color="light&height"> ipad bag blog</font></a><a href="http://www.sutudeg.org/"><font color="light&height"> sutudeg </font></a> <a href="http://wposfv.com/"><font color="light&amp;height">education news</font></a> and camera.

        predict. All I know for sure is that Mango is very good and combined with Nokia hardware Microsoft has a compelling argument for smartphone leadership.

        One of the great things about the Mango update is that it will be coming for FREE to all existing

    • In Australia, it was boom for a while back in 2004.

      @Feldwebel Wolfenstool : When 3G networks first launched here, the company named "Three" offered a free video call all around Australia. There were a lot of phones supporting it at the time: Nokia, Sony, LG you name it.

      However, later on, nobody seemed to want to do that anymore because its not practical. You wont do video call when you are away or on the road because it's not convenient. And when you are at home, you'd prefer doing video call from the webcam on their PC\laptop anyway since it's more comfortable and the screen are far better.

      @Feldwebel Wolfenstool That just can't be. Why, we've seen countless studies that prove that Linux is vastly more expensive, less reliable, etc. in the server room than Microsoft's offerings. These companies only think they're saving money.

      That, or they've figured out that someone is lying to them.

      Next thing you know, they might start wondering if the Received Wisdom might be wrong about the desktop, too.
