iPhone OUT - MyTouch IN
Whats up fellas. It's been a long time since I was here. Used to be a huge iPhone fan but because Apple and AT&T want to rape me and make me pay $599 or $699 for the stupid 3GS because I wasn't eligible for an upgrade till July 2010 I canceled my contract and went with T-Mobile. Got myself a MyTouch phone with 3G data on it, 600 min with unlim tmo to tmo...unlim txtin...fave five.. and 3g data plan for about $75 a month with taxes which is super cool. I know iPhone is cool and all but man I'm in love with MyTouch. As a matter of fact I think it's even better than iPhone. I dont know if its me but Tmobile 3g data is 5 times faster on this phone than I had on my Iphone 3g with ATT.
People don't let ATT screw you over.

So... ur basically saying: AT&T is holding me to the 2 year contract I signed and not letting me get an early upgrade so I threw a temper tantrum and switched to another carrier because I can't afford my service plan and got an inferior phone. Go me!

That was the last time Apple and AT&T got rich from me. Every year they release iPhone and MyTouch came to the market first and it had everything...MMS..VIDEO RECORDING..COPY/PASTE..EVERYTHING!!!! What did iPhone 2G have, nothing. FCK Apple and AT&T.

I swear I'm not trying to justify anything! I thought my 18month o2 uk contract was long but it's up in under 5 months and I'm still so happy with my 3g, so happy I might just get a 3gs on 18month. The reason why it still feels like a new phone is cos of this place and saurik. I'm no fanboy but it's so nice wen somthing just works. I'm more than satisfied with my choice and compared to 9 outta 10 peeps I know I demand a lot from a phone. My rant

Who has 60.000+ apps on their iPhone noone ? So I could care less how many apps are there. And all that jailbreaking/unlocking is getting really old. Also, MyTouch is open-source and the phone is a thousand times more customazible then iPhone. How many apps did App have when iPhone first came out. LOL!
I hate when some iphone fans won't admit certain things.
Im not a nerd or a geek or whatever that I need to have 60.000 apps like some people. MyTouch has exactly what I had on my iPhone and even more.
Go to Discount Cellular phones, GSM Unlocked Phones, International Cell Phones and Cell Phone Accessories from MyWorldPhone.com and find Nokia's that will OWN and destroy iPhone in a heartbeat. These phones go for $1000 and up. IpHONE is overrated big time.

yea i had the my touch for abt a wk and i didnt like it so i sold it and went back to the iphone. the main reason is becuz the onscreen keyboard is alot more responsive on the iphone than the mytouch. and another reason is the iphone is just a better phone lol. iphone FTW!! there will never be an "iphone killer"waiting on my iPhone 6+

Bragging about quantity and not quality means absolutely nothing, because more than half of the stuff in the app store is absolutely worthless.
With the prices they're charging an early upgrade seems inline for a contract that's been in effect for more than a year -- If it was.
And yeah T-Mobile 3G is better than AT&T 3G if you have it. They're shooting up their 3G very quickly. I'm in NV and the coverage is great.

MyTouch 3G data speeds ABSOLUTELY KILL iPhone 3GS Data Speeds. Look it up online where they test it and see it for yourself. I have a friend with 3GS and almost any website MyTouch loads at least 3x faster than his 3GS. I hate fanboys. Both phones are great and iPhone is great too but I HAD 3 iphones and all that jailbreaking and unlocking does nothing but gives you problems and headaches.

I switched from my 2g iPhone to a MyTouch for about 5 days. It was nice. The fact that you customize nearly everything is fantastic. The Android OS was a nice change and so was the 3g service, but I had a few issues. I'm fairly certain the device is under powered to run the OS. It would just slow right down for me. Installed a task manager to keep an eye on things and that didn't help. No matter what the connection type, pages took forever to load in the browser. I blame that issue on the browser loading most pages as a full size site, rather than a mobile version. I hated the keyboard, but I did install the HTC keyboard (there was a link on the T-Mobile forums for it) and it was much nicer, but I was typing faster than the keyboard would register.
There were a few apps that I really wanted, but didn't have access too, so I continued to carry my iPhone with me so I could listen to Red Sox games and play a few games. Also needed it for music because for whatever reason, the music player on the MyTouch would start to run sluggish and you could hear it.
Overall, most of the issues were caused by the little about of ram on the phone. It comes with 196mb on T-Mobile's network, but HTC also a version that is loaded with 288mb.
I give it a 6 out of 10. It was a great phone, but not for someone that uses there phone for EVERYTHING. It just doesn't have the power.
It's nice to know that you're happy with your new phone, enjoy it!

I moved from a T-Mobile g1 to Iphone 2g. I would say AT-T is way better in service wise as for service. It kills t-mobile and t-mobile doesn't have 3g like at-t has it. T-mobile only has it in a couple of large cities. I have freaking GRPS for data which is lame when I could have 3g with a AT-T iphone. Android is dusty and not as clean as the iPhone OS. Android does have some neat features with Open SOurce. You got to love the Hero Theme on your my touch but its slow and unusable. Have fun with your my TOuch but in the long run. You will be back.

Honestly, people that want to get pissed cause they cant upgrade early, JUST because its an iphone?
Any other phone or carrier you wouldnt be able to upgrade early either. So why should it be different for an iphone anyways???
And $600-$700 is not overpriced if you compare it to any other PDA style phone on the market (retail full price).

I bought my 3GS on craigslist for $470 and sold my 3G for $370. Maybe if you would have thought of that rather than throwing a temper tantrum you wouldn't be stuck with a MEDIOCRE AT BEST phone. AND LOLOLOLOL AT THE INTERNET BEING 5x AS FAST!!!
Lets not talk about ancient technology. Lets talk about the 3GS; which absolutely crushes your little MyTouch.
Hey good luck with your plastic screen, sluggish OS, AND SLOWER 3G!
