With as fast as new smartphones come out, it's a scary proposition to consider purchasing the latest and greatest months after its launch. After all, it's not as though prices immediately begin to go into a decline; they stay locked in right up to the launch of the next model. T-Mobile understands what this frustration can feel like, so it's offering iPhone fans one sweet deal. Via a humorous and straight-forward YouTube video, T-Mobile CEO John Legere tells us why his company's latest deal is worth paying attention to, and he's got a good point. It's no secret that a new iPhone is en route, so... Read more...
Earlier this week, we learned that Microsoft’s Surface 3 LTE would be heading to AT&T’s network. And right on schedule, AT&T has opened up sales of the tablet which is available in a 64GB configuration (which we already knew about) and a 128GB configuration (which was news to us). Those that purchase a Surface 3 LTE at full price from a Microsoft Store or authorized retail partners will receive an unlocked device that can be used either on AT&T or T-Mobile’s wireless network in the United States (unlocked versions will be made available in late August). Speaking of T-Mobile, the Surface... Read more...
T-Mobile is launching some new functionality for its smartphone users today, and surprisingly CEO and President John Legere hasn’t gone on the warpath against rival carriers when making the announcement. Instead, Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray took to the company blog to announce that T-Mobile has become the first U.S. carrier to support Rich Communications Services (RCS). The boys and gals in magenta call their service T-Mobile Advanced Messaging and it greatly enhances SMS and MMS messages that we’ve all grown accustomed to over the years. Instead of looking to the past with SMS and MMS,... Read more...
With all the hoopla surrounding Apple's flagship iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices and Samsung responding with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, you may have forgotten about the G4 from LG. Even with slightly newer smartphones on the market, the G4 is right there among the top Android smartphones, and if you're rolling with T-Mobile, you can score one for $480 for a limited time.T-Mobile has temporarily dropped the price, slashing $120 off its normal retail cost of $600. That's still a hefty sum to pay all at once, though if you have good to excellent credit, you can snag it for no money down... Read more...
The word on the street is that T-Mobile has finally vaulted past Sprint to become the nation’s third largest wireless carrier. We’ll have to wait for Sprint’s quarterly figures to come in before T-Mobile CEO John Legere can gloat with reckless abandon, but until that time, the boys and gals in magenta are looking to pad their subscriber counts with a new Un-carrier Amped initiative. Coming hot on the heels of JUMP on Demand and Mobile Without Borders, T-Mobile has announced what it calls “The BEST family plan in wireless.” With T-Mobile’s new family plan, two people will each get their own 10GB...

T-Mobile today unveiled the second part of Un-carrier Amped program. The first piece of the puzzle was JUMP On Demand, which allows customers to upgrade their smartphone at any time. Today, T-Mobile upped the ante by extending voice and data coverage for Simple Choice customers to Canada and Mexico at no extra charge. The new initiative, called “Mobile Without Borders,” even brings with it 4G LTE data speeds which is a big plus for T-Mobile customers that regularly cross the border to the north and south of the United States. “Last year, a full 35% of all international calls and 55% of all international...

Sometimes it's better not to take the bait and get sucked into an Internet fight. Sprint boss Marcelo Claure is learning that the hard way after being drawn into battle with T-Mobile CEO John Legere on what can be considered his home field -- Twitter. If you're at all familiar with Legere, you know he loves to use Twitter to poke fun at rival wireless carriers, and he's turned himself into a bit of a rockstar using social media. We already covered the details leading up to this point, but to quickly recap, Sprint recently announced a new "All-In" unlimited phone plan designed to simplify everything... Read more...
It was pretty much a given that an Internet fight would eventually break out between T-Mobile's outspoken CEO John Legere and whoever would be the first to get fed up with his inflammatory comments. The lucky 'winner' ended up being Sprint boss Marcelo Claure, who ripped off a series of Twitter posts blasting Legere and his "uncarrier bulls**t." The tiff seemingly started when Legere posted a condescending tweet about Sprint's new All-In unlimited plan followed by the hashtag #SprintLikeHell. He wrote, "I give credit to Sprint for swinging the bat when... Read more...
There's a weird issue that seems to be affecting certain iPhone devices. Those affected claim they're experiencing frequent and random restarts preceded by a blue screen that flashes on the display for a brief period. A blue screen of death, if you will. What's interesting is that the majority of complaints are coming from T-Mobile subscribers, and it only began occurring last night.Apple news and rumor site MacRumors says it's received "several complaints from readers," though users have also reported the issue on other destinations on the web, including Facebook, Twitter, and reddit. The issue... Read more...
T-Mobile is well known to general consumers for its wildly popular Un-carrier promotions and in tech circles for its potty mouthed and pompous CEO, John Legere. Both of those facets of T-Mobile were on display today with the introduction of a reinvigorated Un-carrier Amped initiative. And the first promotion that will launch under Un-carrier Amped this summer is the incredibly intriguing JUMP! On Demand smartphone leasing program. JUMP! On Demand allows you to upgrade your smartphone any time you want. There are no additional upfront costs or even taxes to fork over (as long as you have good credit)... Read more...
A recent and rather extensive test of 4G LTE networks in several parts of the United States revealed that competition is heating up in the high-speed wireless space. It also showed that Sprint, home of the "cut your bill in half" promotion and enticing unlimited data plans, still hasn't caught up with its competitors, though it's improving. The folks at PCMag ran 131,000 test cycles in more than 30 U.S. cities across the country. They partnered up with Chevrolet, which lent the team three vehicles equipped with AT&T OnStar 4G LTE. Thousands of miles later, Verizon... Read more...
Penny pinching T-Mobile subscribers can now score Microsoft's entry-level Lumia 435 smartphone for less than $50 ($49.88 to be exact) from Walmart. That's about half the price it was selling for when it first turned up in the U.S. about three months ago for $95, and it's an off-contract price -- no subsidized shenanigans or accompanying long-term contract.For that price, you might as well add Wally World's 2-year care plan, a $9 add-on that covers your phone from accidental damage and normal wear and tear. What's more, coverage includes a free replacement with no deductible, a relatively rare combination... Read more...
T-Mobile has been aggressively trying to lure customers over to the Un-carrier's network, though not all of the company's promotions receive a lot of fanfare. Such is the case with T-Mobile knocking $100 off the price of Google's Nexus 6 smartphone. If you head over to T-Mobile's website, you'll find the Android device selling for $549.84 outright, down from $649.92.If you don't have that kind of loot to fork over in one lump sum, you can break payments up into 24 monthly chunks at $22.91. The monthly price stays in effect until you pay off the device or leave T-Mobile early, at which... Read more...
Led by outspoken CEO John Legere, T-Mobile hasn't been subtle in its aggressive attempts to win over customers from competing wireless customers, and that's still the case in a new promotion designed to lure Verizon subscribers. It's called the "Never Settle Trial" and is a sarcastic spoof on Verizon's "Never Settle" ad campaign. The Never Settle Trial is exclusively offered to Verizon customers who are willing to test T-Mobile's service against their current carrier. It's a risk free affair -- Verizon customers port their number to a new T-Mobile smartphone while retaining their old Verizon phone... Read more...
