Good news today relating to the T-Mobile network. The T-Mobile Dash was able to sustain my phone conversation as I was going through some of the previously “dead” spots when I used another T-Mobile smartphone a while ago. I would say that in my experience in the last 80 days, many of the spots that were previously “smartphone-unfriendly” for T-Mobile and for Cingular have become friendlier (this is referring to my experience in San Francisco).
Don’t let the network stop you?
So if you are considering one of the T-Mobile or Cingular devices (especially the BlackBerry Pearl by T-Mobile, or the Cingular 3125, or the T-Mobile Dash), and may be hesitating because of the network problems you may have heard about or experienced in the past, you may want to check again on the coverage in your area. It is likely that you will be pleasantly surprised. And knowing that both T-Mobile and Cingular give you the 30 day money back guarantee, your risk is minimal.
A real on-the-go day with the T-Mobil Dash
Having been on the go most of the day, I had the opportunity to use the T-Mobile Dash phone, e-mail, voice notes features, and the voice recorder under accessories. Overall, the T-Mobile Dash continues to behave very nicely and I am impressed with its usability.
Writing an e-mail, you get extra help from the T-Mobile Dash
At first, I thought of it as being an “annoyance”. It reminded me of Microsoft Word when it tries to correct your formatting or your typing when in fact you want it to leave you alone. The T-Mobile Dash has this “typing aid” which automatically tries to guess what you are typing, and presents to you the options so you can choose one. After getting used to it, I found it to extremely helpful when it comes to typing e-mail addresses. It pretty much functions like the Auto-Complete feature in Outlook. However, when it comes to typing regular text, I think the QWERTY keyboard does the job well, and the "typing aid" may be a slight distraction.
