Well that's a bummer but that must be what's happening because it's not switching to 4G. I give up on it. It's too slow to be usable for network. I'm shopping for a new T-Mobile device. Requirements: slider keyboard, runs CM.
I did look at the current T-Mobile official phones. I really really like sliders; I can't live without a QWERTY. Unfortunately it looks like none of their current offerings have CM support. I guess I need to wait for CM 9 which might have support for more devices.
Check for HTC DOUBLESHOT (tmobile calls it "mytouch4gslide" or some other stupid sounding nonsense). It isn't on the "official" list, but there is an "official" 7.1 alpha-hold-you-over build on XDA for it, and it WILL be official for Android 4.0 (there is an Android 4.0 build for it on XDA, but a couple of functional glitches not yet worked out).
The Doubleshot is the technical successor to the Vision. Its basically identical, except more RAM, faster (double core) CPU, better camera, etc.
Alternatively..... anybody notice that....
Edit: Its $100, but you need to sign up for a service plan -- and doesn't seem to force you into a contract unless you go for the "$50" mail in card in addition (would take it to $50), so you can cancel immediately.
