    You need to vote with your money.

    If your carrier don't want to carry the phone you want, take your money elsewhere.
    I'm pretty sure those on tmo do not/cannot afford other carrier prices which is why they chose tmo. Not to mention some people only have one carrier with good coverage in their area.

    Ok I'm on tmo USA. I currently have a HD7. I've had this phone for a year. I love it (mainly for Xbox live achievements). I love the screen size. The lower resolution doesn't bother me. The 16GB is kinda low for me (I have to delete stuff all the time. Mainly because I have about all of the Xbox live titles on my phone).
    My main grip is I want a phone with a front facing camera. Tmobile currently only has 2 titty bopper phones the radar, and the Lumina. There's no way I would go to a smaller screen or drop down to 8GB. What am I to do? I don't fault tmobile at all. They would love a premium WP7 phone. I fault Microsoft 100%. Why their putting all their eggs in one basket with att is beyond me. Personally I think this is a stupid strategy. I know I'm not the only one feeling this way. I have 5 lines with tmo. I couldn't get 2 at att for what I pay. So switching is out of the question. I really feel like this is gonna hurt WP7. Tmo, Verizon and Sprint should all have premium phones and not just att. That's why I respect Verizon for putting their foot down and saying give us a premium 4G WP7 or nothing. I don't know what I'm gonna do yet but that Samsung Galaxy 2 sure looks good. It just kills me that Microsoft is forcing me to android if I want a kick butt phone.
    AT&T from March will have Lumia 900 with FFC and LTE. You should wait just couple of months ;)

    so, how does a great phone on AT+T in a few months help someone who specifically says he is stuck with T-Mobile because of the plan pricing differences? He wants something like the 900 on T-Mobile (heck, so do I for what that's worth) because that's where he is stuck at.

    i hear you. i cant leave my original samsung focus just because of the option of using a memory card. i am already preparing my skydrive for my next phone which will have 16gb more than likely. im buying mp3 through zune account, and loading pictures onto the sky drive. hopefully that will work, but i understand your issue because im going through the same!!

    At least you guys have the option to switch carriers to get the phone you want. Here in Canada only one carrier(TELUS) is currently carrying any wp7 devices, the Surround7 and Omnia7. Only two mango handsets have even been announced for Canada, the 710 and the 800. Neither device is an *upgrade* from my HD7(smaller screen and no ffc) and neither is coming to my carrier, Bell. If I could use a smaller screen with my man-hands I might consider either device(800 is especially sexy) as storage is a non issue for me. I'm currently only using 3gb of my hd7 storage, but I'm a big tango VoIP user, so ffc is a must for my next device. By the time I'll be able to afford to import an unbranded device we'll be anticipating WP13 or something, so I'm stuck.

    I for one don't understand why no Windows Phone comes with 32/64GB storage built-in.

    It does suck to be in Canada right now being a WP7 user. Though I have heard that HTC is looking at releasing a phone soon in Canada, hopefully Titan 2. I do want the Lumia 900 but no word on that yet. Hopefully we hear something sooner rather then later.

    Did you read my post??????
    I have 5 lines with tmobile. I pay a little over $200 for UNLIMITED everything.
    As much as I'd like to I can't afford Att rates. I couldn't get 2 lines for that price from Att.
    I don't understand your complaint. You want to to order from a value food menu, but expect NY Strip quality. T Mobile is s budget friendly service provider, they charge less, they have less money to secure exclusive deals or steal exclusive deals from other 800lb gorillas in the room who demand exclusive deals for themselves. AT&T and Verizon have money to burn because they are larger and charge more. It's simple really, it always costs more to be on the cutting edge. I hate to disappoint you, but dont hold your breath for top of the line phones on TMobile, they will always be 1 step behind what's hot now. But like you said yourself, you get 5 lines for 200 bucks. So just choose your priorities.

    P.S on a side note, I think TMobile future is pretty bleak. But that's another topic.
