    Except verizon really started the ball rolling for android with the original motorola droid and things took off from there. I think if the OEM's would continue offering more high end options like the titan,focus s/flash, to help with sales and maybe do what samsung was doing with the galaxy line and having 1 model on all of the carriers that would help sales, especially with nokia getting on board. Offer a high end "flagship phone" for the carriers to sell and let it go from there.
    You are somewhat right that Android did take off after Verizon released their Droid, but they didn't even have it before noticing how well it was doing on T-Mobile. Verizon also needed a device to compete with AT&T's iPhone exclusivity. Now, we are in a different environment. Verizon is doing really well with Android they may not really see the point in WP7 until perhaps Apollo comes around or once they see more people going for Windows Phones.

    Good news on the front page now lets stop the ignorant predictions.

    Unofficial T-Mobile News, Videos, Articles and more
    T-Mobile will probably be bought out by somebody. I don't think that's an ignorant prediction because T-Mobile doesn't really have too much going for them and DT has a "I want to get rid of you" attitude towards them. I mean T-Mobile did win in this AT&T deal, but don't count AT&T or another company out of the equation yet. All it is going to take is a political change in 2012 and AT&T may start reacquiring the company or perhaps Dish Network would seriously consider buying them. Heck, you can't even count out Amazon from wanting to buy T-Mobile considering they have really increased their presence in the mobile industry in a short amount of time. Amazon was actually considering buying out RIM, so I wouldn't think it would be too farfetched to think they would buyout T-Mobile. I would probably switch to them if they did too. It would be like the Walmart of the mobile phone carriers: cheap prices for devices and plans. And there were talks about Amazon producing their own phone. So yeah, I think that statement was like everyone else has said, just making it seem like they are doing well. I mean it wouldn't make very good business sense to tell your customers you aren't doing well. They want to hear that you are going to be stable, or else they would lose their customers.

    When the parent owner wants you gone, things can't be going too well.

    I agree but verizon made it more main stream which I could see them doing with wp7 if they got on board.

    You're the one who is clueless and yet you got the nerve to call me sheep? Especially after your latest LTe posting. Looks like someone needs to point to themself.

    When CBS and Viacom split in 2006 both companies still did well on their own.

    Can't we all just get along?

    We don't need to be speaking to each other like this.

    Not really.

    Keep in mind, I'm not singling you out. It was just the most recent post that was easy to quote.

    redraider133 and you have been going back and forth. But the reality is that both of you are here on this forum because of interest in Windows Phone. You just have different opinions about stuff.

    You guys haven't even nearly hit the level of some of the stuff that I've seen people spew. I just hope that neither of you get to that point. It's better to just nip it in the bud.

    CBS isn't Tmobile. Tmobile's parent company has stated that they want to be rid of of them. No matter what you post, what you link, what you say.

    I would not say anything but anytime I post that person makes some ridiculous comment like I'm crapping a thread yet I said I was gonna get the phone if it came to verizon. Maybe with you saying something to him he will relax

    I don't think anyone on here is suggesting that it couldn't end up that T-Mobile become an independent company, but we are just pointing at the likelihood of it rather being bought off by some other company. I would think if they became purely independent then they may have trouble keeping prices so low. I'm not a T-Mobile customer, but I would think that if I was I would actually be hoping the company would be bought out by someone like Amazon or Dish Network (I can of course see the rebellion against AT&T buying them out). You would probably get better service with either of those companies and it would almost be a guarantee that your rates wouldn't rise than if T-Mobile became independent.

    I think amazon should buy it since they could keep prices low. I could see if Dish buys tmo them raising the prices.

    I immediately thought of what you said about Verizon and the Droid introduction when I read today's article about Microsoft going to spend $200 million to advertise the new Nokia phone on AT&T and that AT&T was going to push the phone in their own marketing as well as in store. That budget is twice the amount I believe of the Droid campaign when that first came out. I wouldn't be surprised if you even see a Super Bowl ad with that kind of money. So, get ready to see a huge step up in Windows Phone advertising. It is very exciting news.

    I'm sure there will be tons of phone ads during the superbowl so it may get lost amongst all the other ads, although it is a good sign to see them spending that much money on advertising.

    I was really hoping that Samsung would mention something about the Mendel at CES especially since HTC and Nokia announced LTE phones.
