Why bother? The MT4G is only going to get faster, and its not burdened with the Galaxy S' software.

Besides that; anyone that needs more than 5 mbps for their phone is crazy.

Yeah if you're into rooting at all check out the Samsung section for how much of a pain that is. And you'll never have Cyanogen.

But the speed.....
Who can resist the speed on 4G this thing is showing ?
I'll be the first to say I am not a Samsung fan at all,
but this will be the fastest thing out on any carrier when it hits.
I wouldnt do another 2 year contract for it but I'd like try it for
a week or two when it hits, maybe pick one up off Craigslist when they
start showing up there.

On another note the Galaxy S II is going to be HSPA+ and looks
like it will even be more of a speedster than the Galaxy S 4G phone.

I can definitely resist the speed. The biggest reason being that it's a Samsung. I'm not saying the build quality is bad or anything like that, but their track record for updates is terrible. I'd almost be willing to bet that this phone won't get Gingerbread at all, or if it does it'll be on the day that the Galaxy S2 ships. And by then who would want this phone?

Are the screens awesome? Yes. Is the phone really fast? Yes. Will the data speeds be fast? Yes. But that doesn't matter to me if the company won't stand behind the product by releasing updates in a timely manner.

And that data speed won't matter at all if T-Mobile hasn't upgraded the towers in your area to 21mbps. Same thing stands true when 42mbps comes out.

Keep in mind that speed tests are very dependent on geography and signal strength. Certain WIMAX markets are known to have very good coverage and speed, while others are good but not as good. This is true of every network in the country.

It is interesting that they include the Iphone 4, though, because it doesn't support the latest upgrades ATT has made to its network.

This. What the hell are you doing on a phone that requires you to need more than the theoretical 14.4 down that the mt4g is capable of? I usually get 5 down around my city, and i really don't even know wtf i should do with that much lol.

Thats not the point.
Its there, therefor I must have it.
Tim the tool man except with phones.
It will definitely be a Craigslist pick up.
Not doing another contract until the quad cores come out, maybe.

Although this phone has the same problem that caused me to ditch the Nexus S after a week.
No track pad.

I'm new to T-Mobile. I actually don't have any extra phones at all.

Well now that TMO has announced the Galaxy S II.....
erm....not announced the Galaxy S II....
maybe waiting with the 2nd best TMO 4G phone wont be too hard.

The great thing about using a sim card is being able to easily switch phones.
You can sometimes find some deals on C/L .
