T-Mobile's not having a great week, but things are getting faster...

T-Mobile isn't exactly having a great week. First, they suffered through a national outage that potentially impacted millions of customers. Then, the company began sending e-mails containing photos of topless women to their customers (which is apparently bad). After that, their 3rd quarter earnings indicate they lost 77,00 subscribers and continue their struggle to keep up with bigger industry players. On the positive side, it appears that the company is speeding up its HSDPA 3G upgrades, and has started unofficially lighting up faster 7 Mbps speeds in a number of markets. T-Mobile customers: let us know if you're seeing faster speeds by posting in our comment section below.
New feature pushing topless photos may spread to iPhone
This new T-Mobile feature of pushing topless photos to their customers may start a feature war with AT&T; Verizon; & Sprint. Instead of competing over 3G coverage maps, they can compete over who has the best boob coverage.

Well, i can tell you, if Sprint were to do this, I'd login to my account every day and pay at moments notice...Heck, i may even buy there premium content to give me a reason to login. -- Block Accounts | UseNet Now
T-Mo's web site shows full 3G coverage here in Centerville, Ohio, but my TouchPro2 has never seen it during the week I have owned the phone. The EDGE speeds are extremely slow, when I can even get them. 7.2 seems lightyears away. -- Microwave and RF Components at www.ohiomicrowave.com
Speed? I don't know. Customer service for me has been the best. But for the phones themselves? I had to go to Ebay to get a phone that suites my fancy to run on T-Mobile. Over all, I have not much negative to say about T-Mobile.
