Spring Break is about to start this week at T-Mobile, and the company is promising bucketloads of mobile data instead of hardbodies frolicking around in warm sand. After showing some love to families that need four lines of service, the company’s new ‘Data Gone Wild’ promotion is aimed at customers that only need two lines of data. Customer will receive two lines of data for a total of 12GB per month (6GB per line, non-shared) for $80 per month. Of course, that price gets you the usual perks like unlimited calling and unlimited texting that T-Mobile’s competitors all offer these days. T-Mobile... Read more...
There are tech CEOs, and then there's T-Mobile CEO John Legere. Whereas most wireless CEOs (and tech CEOs in general) are very professional and try to stick to the corporate line when giving interviews or interacting with the public, Legere breaks the mold with his brash commentary and propensity to pepper the airwaves with f-bombs. Legere also has a knack for constantly trolling competing wireless companies, and even calling out their respective CEOs on a regular basis. Some of his recent antics involved mocking the competition with the profanity-laced “The Scarriers” video series and asking the... Read more...
A few months ago, T-Mobile CEO John Legere pitched a fit over AT&T exclusivity for the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL Windows 10 Mobile flagship smartphones. T-Mobile customers can still purchase both smartphones and use them on T-Mobile’s network, but they have to purchase them off-contract at full price direct from Microsoft to do so. They can’t be purchased using T-Mobile’s financed installment plans. But despite the fact that Microsoft seems to be making a big mistake by limiting its flagship smartphones to AT&T, T-Mobile hasn’t given up entirely on Windows 10 Mobile. Unfortunately,...

T-Mobile’s Binge On initiative at first seemed like a pretty good deal for its customers. In exchange for reduced video quality (480p), T-Mobile customers could enjoy unlimited streaming from partner services including Hulu and Netflix without hitting their monthly data pool. Initially, FCC Commissioner Tom Wheeler gave Binge On the thumbs up, stating that it is an “innovative” service. "It's clear in the Open Internet Order that we said we are pro-competition and pro innovation. Clearly this meets both of those criteria. It's highly innovative and highly competitive," added Wheeler. However, upon... Read more...
T-Mobile is looking to spread some more holiday cheer by kicking dirt in the eyes of its competitors. T-Mobile opened up the festivities by giving Sprint customers an additional $200 account credit for switching. The third-place wireless carrier then set it sights on AT&T customers, offering them a free upgrade to a 128GB iPhone 6s along with a 50 percent discount on mobile accessories. Now you couldn’t have possibly thought that T-Mobile would forget about all of those folks on Verizon Wireless, America’s largest wireless carrier. T-Mobile CEO John Legere just wouldn’t be able to let Verizon... Read more...
Last week, T-Mobile offered a special promotion to “beleaguered” Sprint customers that were looking to make a switch. Today, T-Mobile is opening its doors to AT&T customers with a healthy dose of holiday cheer. With last week’s Sprint offer, T-Mobile gave switchers a $200 credit per line. The AT&T offer is also worth $200, however, that money is put towards a memory upgrade on a brand new Apple iPhone 6s. In other words, AT&T folks that make the leap over to Team Magenta can get an 128GB iPhone 6s for the same price as a 16GB iPhone 6s. Apparently, this offer is only relevant to AT&T... Read more...
Today, brash T-Mobile CEO John Legere announced the latest piece of its long-running Uncarrier initiative. Uncarrier X was teased late last month, and well-known smartphone leaker Evan Blass even spilled the beans saying that T-Mobile would offer unlimited streaming for video services like Netflix and HBO. As Legere alluded to last month when he offered Blass an invitation to today’s event, those early leaks were absolutely correct. Legere has declared this “Data Day” in an effort to “disrupt the scam” being perpetrated by Verizon Wireless and AT&T — at least in his mind. “Dumb and Dumber are... Read more...
T-Mobile has really been knocking it out of the park this year, and it's reaping great rewards for the company. This past fall, the company leapfrogged Sprint to become the third-largest US wireless carrier, and given the company's momentum, things are only going to improve. While it's hard to argue that T-Mo's network isn't as wide-reaching as AT&T's and Verizon's, the company is sure doing everything it can to help smooth that over until the situation improves. Networks aside, T-Mobile seems to be the most "fun" of all the major carriers, thanks to the company's outspoken and hilarious CEO,... Read more...
T-Mobile CEO John Legere is a master troller. The man takes pleasure in ripping on his larger competitors — Verizon Wireless and AT&T — and to a lesser extent, fourth place wireless carrier Sprint. Earlier this week Legere got a taste of his own medicine after his attempts to troll Verizon results in a swift response that left Legere attempting to laugh off the sick burn. Legere is back at again today, taking direct aim at his three wireless competitors in a three-part video series called “The Scarriers.” In each of the videos, Legere is sitting around a campfire with a group of bewildered...

You may have to don a costume and go trick-or-treating if you want to score free candy on Halloween, but no such accessories will be necessary to snag some free hardware from T-Mobile a weekend ahead of time. This weekend and this weekend only, you can march into a T-Mobile store and walk out with a Samsung Galaxy S6 32GB phone and Galaxy Tab A tablet for no upfront cost or monthly payments, costume optional.Yes, T-Mobile is giving them away for free, though of course there are caveats. The deal requires an eligible trade-in with T-Mobile's JUMP! On Demand program. You'll also have to pay "taxes... Read more...
T-Mobile boss John Legere is a bit of a rock star among CEOs in the social media space, so it's only fitting that we see him jam out to When We Were Young by The Killers on Twitter. What's trippy, though, is that he's plucking away at a game controller and not a real instrument in order to promote the Guitar Hero Live bundle for iOS. Guitar Hero Live is the newest installment in the popular Guitar Hero series published by Activision, and it's available to purchase at T-Mobile. It's the only mobile wireless provider selling the Guitar Hero Live for iOS bundle and yes, you can finance it just as... Read more...
AT&T is like the one kid at the pool who walks instead of running – and then tries to get everyone else in trouble with the lifeguard. But what else can you do when your competitors are offering Wi-Fi calling and you’re toeing the FCC’s line?Wi-Fi calling (using your home wireless network or a Wi-Fi hotspot to place phone calls on your mobile phone) has been around for quite some time, but it’s mostly been a perk of wireless carriers T-Mobile and Sprint. AT&T looked into offering the service too, with an eye towards reeling in more iPhone users who could take advantage of their home networks.... Read more...
T-Mobile CEO John Legere is ticked off and with good reason. Experian, which just so happens to process credit applications for T-Mobile, reported today that it was hit with a massive database breach. Experian describes the incident as an “unauthorized acquisition of information from a server” that contained “some personally identifiable information for approximately 15 million [T-Mobile] customers.” So what information were these “unauthorized” people able to obtain? Well according to Experian, personally identifiable information including names, date of birth, and social security numbers were... Read more...
When T-Mobile CEO John Legere isn’t unloading profanity-laced tirades or needling the competition at every turn, his company actually more often than not actually introduces compelling promotions for customers and new technology features that take full advantage of today’s high-end smartphones. Such is the case today; T-Mobile has announced a follow-up to its Advanced Messaging initiative that kicked off in July. T-Mobile Video Calling takes full advantage of the third-place wireless carrier’s Voice over LTE (VoLTE) network to provide native video calling from person-to-person. T-Mobile Video Calling...
