    This is very interesting..... I'm also curious as to the new tower figure, as in how much of that is to exand their footprint and how much of it is to fill coverage holes or replace coverage currently provided by roaming partners.

    I'd really like to see some additional east Texas coverage and Northern Louisiana coverage.

    Can't beleive they have the guts to boast about their crap phone lineup on slide 22.

    Boasting that crap like the Motorola V66, are "unique" to T-mobile is a joke...

    On slide 18 is says:
    "Bundled GSM/GPRS and WiFi: unmatched value and simplicity"

    What bundle? Did I miss something??


    I also wish they had given a timeframe for EDGE and their offering of EDGE phones

    You get a 33% discount on WiFi if you are also a voice subscriber. That's probably what they meant. Also I heard somewhere that they are having great success convincing that WiFi customers who have their cellphone with other providers to move their regular mobile service to TMO. In part probably becuase of the $10 discount on the WiFi service and centralized billing.

    So is the $20 unlimited WiFi with or without the voice plan discount?

    Cool....Thanks!

    Maybe by time my contract is up next May, they will have enough hotspots so that I won't need the unlimited GPRS

    AMR (Adaptive MultiRate) is a codec, a voice compression mechanism that allows network operators to more efficiently manage their voice network capacity while ensuring a decent call quality. This mechanism reduces the bandwidth needed for calls (through the use of digital voice compression). Currently TMO uses an older compression scheme called EFR (Enhanced Full Rate) codec.

    and before you ask what does codec mean == compression decompression algorigthm.

    Well, in general, (they didn't say this today but said it in March) 80-90% of the cell sites are to improve existing coverage (this would also include incremental coverage expansions) and the rest (my assumption) would go towards footprint expansion.
