T-Mobile smartphone suggestions

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I will be getting a new contract this summer with T-Mobile and I will finally be getting a smartphone. What are the best phones out there for T-Mobile? Which one do you suggest? Please keep in mind that I don't want to spend too much.

And what are the data plan rates nowadays for smartphones?

I'd personally go with the Galaxy S II.. though I'm currently using the iPhone 3GS on T-Mobile

Galaxy S II or Sidekick 4G or G2? I'm stuck between these three. G2x looks good but I'm not sure if it's in my price range.

The Galaxy S II has no release date as of yet for T-Mobile. It's only been reported that AT&T, Verizon and Sprint will be getting it sometime Q3 maybe.

Right now, the HTC Desire is the best bet. It's supposed to come out June 12th - June 15th, so very soon.

The Galaxy S II would be a better choice, but there's no word on a US release date so you'll have to buy unlocked from the UK. Even then, the GSM variant is for AT&T and cost $800 before markups

When are you going to get the new contract? If you can afford, wait a couple of weeks until the Desire comes out, you'll probably see a price drop, at least on other phones if not the Desire itself.

Oh, not sure yet. Probably at least late July or early August so I definitely got time.

HTC Sensation or Samsung Hercules.

If you can, wait a few months for the Hercules. If you can't, then wait a week and get the Sensation.

My two cents.
