    This is just my 2 cents. I am not a fanboy of iphone 4. In fact, I am very neutral. We all have our preferences. I carry iPhone 4 my personal use and Blackberry for Verizon on my business.

    Anyway...

    Recent T-mobile Ad is just ridiculously stupid.
    Here are the reasons.

    1. Hot chick is my touch 4G. From what I have seen in both devices. iPhone is hot chick and T-mobile my touch 4G is ugly as hell.

    2. T-mobile HSPA+ network is not 4G. It is misleading.

    3. I get a crappy reception with T-mobile in my area. Both Verizon and AT&T have superior network for where I go including Maryland, DC and east Coast.

    What do you all think?

    Personally it seems T-Mobile is trying to hard. Its picking a fight that it can't win. They seem a bit desperate at this point. I personally change the channel every time I see that absurd ad. I have no complains over AT&T here in Houston and Texas in general. I constantly have full bars and I'm happy with it. It seems that service providers are so intimidated with the iPhone that they're having to do direct bashing on the iPhone or AT&T. They can all go F themselves.

    Marketing is marketing, if you can swing it then do it.
    It's nothing personal. People will choose what they want to choose. An informed buyer will review all choices prior to laying out their cash. Everyone else gets what they deserve.

    Actually, I thought it was a pretty good parody of "I'm a Mac" ads that Apple did. I liked it.

    They also aren't really picking on the iPhone too much, but AT&T's network...anyone else get that as the real point of the commercial?

    BS marketing.
    Now they're trying to sell HSPA+ as 4G. :rolleyes:
    We all know that's pure BS, but the average consumer will fall for it.
    How they are not getting hammered for false advertising is beyond me.

    It is more like they are use the speed to let it be 4G. There is a speed requirement for 4G and TMobile network can exceed that speed requirement

    I personally think the MyTouch is ugly. The G2 is actually pretty nice and functions on their HSPA+ network. I guess it is false advertising, maybe they should have said 4G speeds, or even the fastest speeds in the US? Either way, it's not worth the switch. Their "4G" coverage might be superior to Sprint's, but it's still nothing to brag about. My parents 3G coverage here is rather spotty and I live in an urban area.

    Well HSPA+ is a damn sight faster than Sprint's '4G'- and nobody's complaining about that.

    Besides- what the consumer is looking for in '4G' are faster down/up speeds, and HSPA+ is certainly much faster than HSDPA.

    Anybody in their right mind would get the G2 over the MyTouch 4G.
