    First Unlocked/Unbranded T-Mobile 3G Smartphone

    Pharos unveils the Traveler 137 GPS smartphone. It's an unlocked/unbranded quad-band GSM & tri-band 3G (1700/1900/2100) Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone. Retail price is a little high for my taste but I would definitely consider it.

    Sweet! That looks to be a very nice phone. And the real GPS software looks to be pretty well thought out. It will be interesting to see the detailed specs and reviews of the phone's overall performance.

    No keyboard = Eew! Specs and design look really nice otherwise.

    Really nice phone, but once Tmobile gets there hands on it, they would probably cripple it to the best of there power. If the Tri-band AWS 1700/1900/2100 MHz will work with Tmobile, im sure many people on this forum would buy it. Camera could be better, but 3 vs 5MP isnt much a difference.

    It is an unlocked/unbranded phone so T-Mobile won't get its hands on it. I can seriously use this along with my now-grandfathered-$5.99 T-Zones plan.

    I'd see the spec shown on FCC documentation first
    it should be more logical that band II/IV/V are supported for US version, as ATT is migrating 2G off 850 in favor of 3G

    But AT&T 3G is still mainly on 1900Mhz (band II) and that announcement (migrating 2G off 850Mhz) was only made recently.

    I think Pharos has this phone designed for both US + international use thus having quad-band GSM & WCDMA bands I/II/IV.

    Finally a bright hope for a 3g WM device, as long as the specs stay true I will be ordering the day it is available.

    My question is: even if it is unlocked, is there any way that T-mobile may be able to detect this as a smartphone, and if so, force any future smartphone data pricing/tethering policies?

    I was just going to create a thread on this before I saw this post.

    This is an awesome win for those looking for a decent 3G phone (besides G1) for T-Mobile.

    If it had a keyboard it would definitely be charged to my card

    Wow looks nice, a little to expensive for my taste, still waiting for a non tmo branded 3g dumb phone. It should be to hard

    seriously
    I absolutely don't believe it, after X1 and Velocity Mobile fiasco, until I found FCC documentation which states WCDMA IV is tested and passed
