No 3G = EPIC FAIL!
I was already planning to hit-up Cricket Wireless for a 3G USB modem at the end of the month when they finally launch their service in the D.C./Baltimore market, because Cricket's monthly unlimited service is so much cheaper than everyone else's ($40 versus $60-80 with everyone else, including T-Mo!) and because I'm so tired of waiting for T-Mobile and RIM to get their acts together and release a 3G BlackBerry. And at the rate they're going, it looks like I'll NEVER get to use T-Mo's long-awaited 3G network! Way to go, T-Mo!
(Just for clarification, my main use for the 3G service would be to use my
as a tethered modem for my laptop, because I know that the service will have less of an effect on web browsing speed from the BlackBerry than you would think. But again, T-Mo and RIM seem to want to take forever and a year to release a 3G BB! Hell, the Sidekick LX 2009 is already out with 3G as of last month, and still no 3G BB for T-Mo? WEAK!
