    Wink T-Mobile's Video Calling Service Possibly Usable for FaceTime?
    A little off topic but now that T-Mobile's network supports somewhat of a video calling service, what does this mean for ppl who are hactivated on a iPhone 4? Can they finally use FaceTime on their iPhone 4's via T-Mobile service? (With the right plan of course...)

    AT&T is wasting too much money on exclusive to apple and not spending time upgrading their network. Here in Los Angeles AT&T is very spotty. Sprint and t mobiles 4G is getting top notch service here recently and AT&T hasn't done anything. Infact my iPhone is even slower because of so many iPhones and ipads. Tmobile now has wifi calling on wifi without any extra equipment. What has AT&T improve lately? I'm getting more drop calls and poor quality calls. Only thing keeping me on AT&T is my discount. AT&T needs to step up and show some improvements for it's customers or they will fall behind.

    Android users and iPhone users can video chat. It's called Tango, look for the app. It's been around for some time now!

    Tmo is in no position to attack anyone with their pathetic network. The only reason they have cheaper rates is because that is the only way they could keep customers.

    They can reach 4G speeds. They don't have actual 4G technology. False advertising is all it is.

    Sprints 4G isn't technically sprints as it's run and operated by clearwire not sprint... So wherever clear wire goes so does sprint it's that simple. Also T-mobiles 4G network, Verizons 4G network and even At&t 4G network will all be very similar as it's all based a different type of network and there for needing to be build from scratch. When Verizon releases there 4G network it will look no different then t-mobiles or clearwires. It's a matter of who has a better coverage overall based on previous networks that would be Verizon hands down. Basically if your not on Verizon and live outside some major city your pretty much screwed.

    Speed isn't a problem with AT&T, at least for me anyway. My problem with AT&T is reliability. When I have signal the speed is awesome, it's just very rarely that I have a signal.
    They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    4G doesn't exist yet. They can call it 11G if they want, there aren't any standards in place to argue otherwise.

    I could care less, I have good coverage and speed over 3G. FaceTime works great over 3G as well, T-Mobile just another carrier jealous of the iPhone.

    Would be cool except for the fact you can video chat anywhere on iPhone without wifi .. Tango and yahoo messenger work just fine especially in Atlanta where the 3G coverage is amazingly great

    Uhmmm dude iPhone and droid can video chat .. It's called Tango!!

    Tmo doesn't need the iPhone as long as they have Android and WP7.

    AGREED!!! I purchased my first iPhone on craigslist that was already jailbroken and unlocked so that I could use a month-to-month plan. Their reception/customer service was so pathetic!!! I actually decided to pay the extra money for AT&T service. Let's not forget boys and girls.... You get what you pay for!

    And I am more than content with AT&T's service.

    As for FaceTime... I used it when I first got my i4. But even though I have my3g, I haven't used it since. It's not for me. But I can see how it can be very benificial for others.

    eh i think you have your facts about the vid wrong, it's AT&T weighing down the iPhone 4, implying 2 things: iPhone 4 shouldnt be with a restrictive network, and it should be with t-mobile. it's not mocking Apple, but mocking AT&T in an Apple-esque way.
    If you can see this you are one of the many people who can see this.

    Agreed and iPhone should be on all carriers.
