Answer: The Javelin Is 3G-Less! So Is The Kickstart For T-Mobile! RIM Phones Are Not Expected To Be In 3G Form Until About 2010!

A T-Mobile Exclusive!
Well thats a disappointment, why have a phone at all if you have to go by T-Mobiles coverage area. Might as well buy 2 cups and some string as use them as a cell phone...

Sometimes I wish firefox could block some of the idiotic-incompetent posters on this site. Lol. "Retard" ...I mean, What grade are you in? Javelin & Niagra are NOT the same device with different names. They are variants of each other similar to what poster "15" describes. Niagra has EVDO Rev-A. Javelin has WIFI+UMA. The design is slightly tweaked with the CDMA variant; The buttons are adjacent to each other as opposed to spaced on the GSM variant.

Uhhhhh, the shortened form of advertising is "ad" not "add." ADD is short for Attention Deficit Disorder, which I suspect you have, since you couldn't pay attention long enough to learn to spell.

T-Mobile coverage is fine if you don't live in the boonies. Damn rednecks that do live in the middle of nowhere are the only ones who bitch and moan.
Rednecks??? ha ha. In Minnesota I think many would disagree. A lot of people from the Twin Cities drive to northern Minnesota to there cabins which is out in the "Boonies". I would hardly call them rednecks. As for myself, I have a college degree and choose to live in a small town in the "Boonies", but the difference here is that no one bitches unless they have something other than Verizon. Plus the whole stereotype of a "Redneck" is someone that is mentally and sometimes physically challenged so you could assume that a "Redneck" would not be able to operate a computer let alone get internet service in the "Boonies". However the people on here are bitching so I think it would be safe to assume that you are actually calling inteligent "Non Redneck" people like yourself "Rednecks". Nice job in putting yourself in that category. Next time think about what your trying to say or who you are trying to say it to. You might actually get a response from a smart "Redneck" like myself.

t-mobile sucks in more places than just the boonies. I live in a city of about 100 thousand on a major highway and t-mobile is almost non existent up here.
ViperMatriXM, if you would do your research, (but that would require you to think) you would see that it will be released as both a GSM (on t-mobile) and CDMA with Verizon, not a t-mobile exclusive. Different names is the only difference

I Already Know This! The Javelin Is A T-Mobile Exclusive & The Niagara Is A Verizon Exclusive As We'll As The Bold Going With AT&T & Sprint!
Pdxmatt you are 100% right

T-Mobile is getting this? WTF?????????? I guess I'm not getting it then
11. Scorpio_diva2007 (unregistered)
How come it doesn't show this phone for the upcoming for T-Mobile?
30. ViperMatrixXM (unregistered)
Reason Is It Is Not Released In The Market!
12. Jay84Virgo (unregistered)
CDMA Carriers are getting the Niagra...NOT the Javelin.
31. ViperMatrixXM (unregistered)
Incorrect! Only Verizon! Sprint Will Have The Bold!
NIAGRA IS THE SAME PHONE DIFFERENT NAME RETARD (Jay84Virgo)
You sure the niagra isn't the cdma version of the Bold??
The Javelin and Niagra are variants of each other, the CDMA camp is just getting the Thunder and Niagra (with EV-DO)
32. ViperMatrixXM (unregistered)
Incorrect! Bold = AT&T & Sprint! Javelin = T-Mobile Niagara = Verizon! The Reasoning In Way They Have Different Names & Why Didn't All 4 Just Release The Bold Is Because The Bold Is The Same Of The Other 2 But The Companies Requested Special Features!
i want a viagra phone too!
oops i meant niagara
No 3G = No Sale

You say it!
so the comparison is between the gsm, 2g speed, or the cdma, 3gspeed, with better coverage.. well, lets see here.. oh wait, better coverage and faster, i think ill stick w/ verizon... and get a niagra or thunder :)

Im kind of bummed I like HTC but I wish their was a release of exact date for Jav, Bold (US), and Thunder and not just "Q3"

I'm definitely sure if Verizon is getting the Niagra phone it would be 3g capable since Verizon prides themselve to be the best 3g company out there. The T-Mobile verison on the other hand maybe something to think about. Most likely since T-Mobile is just now releasing their 3g network and a couple of other new 3g phones the Javelin may be 3g also. Let's just hope T-Mobile doesn't make the mistake of releasing the Javelin on their old Edge network.
they do? thats pretty funny, b.c theyre the most restrictive one out there and have been beaten to the punch with 3.5g and 4g

we've been beaten to the punch? ummm last time i checked no carrier has launched 4g yet. and 3.5g??? what is that? youre making things up now.

In the US, T-Mobile was the first carrier to start offering UMA services. UMA has been officially ratified by the 3GPP and has been renamed GAN, or Generic Access Network, though most often the technology is still referred to by the UMA name. Definition of "UMA"http://www.mobileburn.com/defi
i cant beleiv some of these posts! 3.5g? 3g on cdma network? are u kidding me do u just make this up as u go. 3g is a gsm only feature evan this site gets it wrong when they give the specs for a cdma phone calling it 3g. if u have a cdma phone its either rev. A or rev. 0
