PhoneNews points out that T-Zones should be back and provides a few more details about why it went down. Lots of folks experienced problems with the cut-rate internet service lately. Given that the Dash has a T-Zones button on it, closing down ports on the thing was a bone-headed move by T-Mobile. Here's to hoping they don't do it again.
Late last month however, T-Mobile opted to reconsider their port offerings, and closed all ports on T-Zones. This shut down Google Maps and Opera Mini on phones, as well as forced Dash users to get a PDA Plan. WIthin hours, T-Mobile was flooded with support calls, and re-re-considered their position. T-Mobile has now restored the old settings.
