T-Mobile More Or Less Mum On G2 OTA


tmo-storeIt’s hard to argue with people who have actually gotten the G2 OTA that provides Wi-Fi calling and Internet Tethering but T-Mobile isn’t ready to admit anything. The carrier provided an official response to Phonescoop regarding the purported push, which was the close relative of the “no comment” kin:

“Wi-Fi Calling and tethering/Wi-Fi sharing are not currently supported on the T-Mobile G2. T-Mobile knows these features are important to consumers and we’re working to deliver them to G2 users in the future. We have nothing further to announce at this time.”

At least they:

  • Acknowledged people want it
  • Said they would deliver it

As for details? Nunca.

I’m not bothered by the vague nature of the response when considering the alternative: they make a promise with a timeline, something goes wrong in testing, they have to delay, people start flipping out and you’ve got another “XYZ doesn’t care about their customers” fiascos on your hand. So all-in-all, well played TMO…

But seriously, you can start rolling that out whenever. As in… wait for it… NOW!

  1. This story about the OTA was on the internet yesterday and if it is on the internet, it must be true.

  2. C’mon throw us some bones, t-mobile.

  3. This is PR. I believe its coming. They just cant admit it yet.

  4. I may buy this phone (again) if TMO gets their act together. Not going to be strung along after they took my money. Been there, done that. No hurry here, so balls in your court TMO. There’s great options on the horizon.

  5. I hope i get this OTA soon :)

  6. If T-Mobile can actually apply an update to the g2 doesn’t it mean it is actually a future that it has temporary root

  7. moii,

    No, the OTA update uses a specific KEY that tells the system to remove the write-protect which is preventing perm-root. Even with an OTA coming the key is encrypted in a method that is essentially uncrackable in our lifetime.
