  • T-Mobile says its customers don´t need to worry, after a recent hackers’ attack on its servers. As you would expect, the carrier ensures that all measures have been taken in order to prevent customer and data base information from leaking and that if someone is affected, they will be informed about it. However, documentation has been stolen indeed, although T-Mobile says these alone are not enough to cause harm to their customers.

  • It looks like the Palm Pre is heading for a rough start. Some users complain their new handset restarts itself almost every time the slider gets opened or closed. The issue doesn’t seem to be widely spread, but there are quite many people experiencing it. It also seems like the 1.0.2 update doesn´t fix this either.

Sprint wins on data? Now that's interesting. I looked into buying the MiFi, and if you read the fine print for the 5G plan for either network, Sprint charges for any roaming after 300MB...Verizon doesn't (got the MiFi with VZW). Sure, if I live in Kansas and didn't travel, that would work, but for the rest of the population? VZW wins in both categories, hands down. And if you're going to say I'm a VZW fanboy...I have the Pre on Sprint.
