It's quite a deal, as some of the featured phones include the awesome HTC HD7 that I've been drooling over, as well as the new myTouch 4G. Rules specify that you have to sign up for a two-line (or more) family plan with data, and savings will be had in the form of a mail-in rebate; so be prepared to foot the entire bill up front.

AT&T and Verizon have already switched to tiered data plans to keep costs down, but T-Mobile has been steadfast in keeping its "unlimited" data plans available for all smartphone owners. However, the tide may be changing, as it has been revealed that T-Mobile plans on reducing (or "throttling") download speeds when customers' data usage hits 5GB in a single billing cycle.T-Mobile's data plans previously held a 10GB ceiling (nothing is really "unlimited"), but now with more and more apps using cellular signals to download movies, make calls, and stream music, data is in higher demand, which means a higher cost for wireless companies and customers alike.

Rumors of the T-Mobile G2 have been flying around since 2008 (!) but there's new confirmation that an announcement of the device is finally in the works — via an incredibly geeky tweet. The message, posted by T-Mobile's Twitter account is entirely in binary code and, according to those familiar, translates to "G2newscomingsoon."

Rumors say that the new device will cost $199 with a two-year contract, or $499 without, however, we got some confirmed details in a press release last night. Find out what the G2 is packing under the hood (along with a new pic) after the break.
This Android-powered device comes with a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen (the same kind used on the Captivate), Swype technology, 16GB of built-in storage space with an expandable memory card slot, a 5MP camera, and a quick 1Ghz processor. But that's not all — check out all the extras you get with the Vibrant when you read more.
While the latest Curve doesn't have all the bells and whistles of AT&T's BlackBerry Torch, the Curve is a much-loved device with a generally low price point. T-Mobile has not yet released pricing or availability details (but has mentioned that the Curve 3G should be hitting shelves "in the coming weeks" via a press email), but its ability to upgrade to BlackBerry 6 is good news for customers who may not be ready to shell out for a pricey new device.
And it's not just the big two that want to make it happen — even T-Mobile is said to be dipping its toe into the mobile payment waters. How far along is this project, and when can we start to see it in action? Find out those details and more after the break.
Does this mean that if Apple leaves AT&T the iPhone would then be exclusive to T-Mobile? Find out when you read more.
The details remain the same — sign up for a family plan on a two-year contract, and pick your favorite phones for one cent each. I have a few suggestions on which ones to grab, but you'd better get a move on — the sale ends today!
The super sale begins Saturday, June 19, and will run the full business day at T-Mobile locations nationwide. Take note: some phones (like the new myTouch 3G Slide) will require a mail-in rebate, so be sure to have some cash on hand just in case you can't resist the call of a new smartphone.
