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...
In my best Ron Paul impression, all I can say is “It’s happening!” Google today announced its Project Fi wireless service, which has been the subject of much speculation over the past few months. However, Google has confirmed much of that speculation now that the full details of the service have been revealed. First and foremost, Project Fi — yes, that is its official name — is limited only to the Nexus 6 smartphone for the time being. That will severely limit the service’s reach at launch, but it does allow for Google to initially tailor the service for a hardware/software platform that it completely... Read more...
We’ve been hearing a lot about Google’s wireless service during the past few months. And now, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal, we’re set to hear even more about the Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) service starting tomorrow. Google will reportedly push its service, which was developed under the codename Nova and more recently branded Project Fi, “as early as Wednesday” according to the WSJ. As we reported earlier this month, Project Fi will only charge customers for the data they use. If a customer purchases a 4GB allotment of data for a given billing cycle and only... Read more...
Good luck to those of you looking for a new Sony branded handset at T-Mobile. At present, you won't find any, nor is the nation's fourth largest wireless carrier stocking used (or new) Xperia Z3 smartphones. They've been quietly removed from T-Mobile's online store, as the wireless carrier confirmed on Twitter when asked by a user why he couldn't find it."The Z3 is no longer available. Here are our current Sony devices," T-Mobile tweeted, while adding a link that directs users to a page showing exactly two Sony branded handsets, both of which are certified pre-owned devices -- the Xperia Z and...

Samsung isn’t about to let HTC hog the spotlight today with the announcement of One M9 availability in the U.S. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Samsung is now announcing that its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will both be available for pre-order starting tomorrow -- the smartphones will be available in brick and mortar locations beginning April 10. Like HTC, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will be available on all four major U.S. carriers (although Samsung has also added in U.S. Cellular). Samsung is also blanketing the retail space as both smartphones will be available from Amazon, Best... Read more...
T-Mobile wants AT&T’s customers – and it’s willing to spend as much as $650 per line to bring them over. The feisty wireless “Un-carrier” announced this week that it will cover the outstanding payments of AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon customers who are willing to make the switch to T-Mobile. It’s calling the move “Carrier Freedom.”“The carriers will do everything they possibly can to lure you in – then screw you out of every possible penny while you’re locked in,” said T-Mobile CEO John Legere in a statement. “Now, the millions who feel stuck with AT&T Next and Verizon Edge can...

T-Mobile turned more than a few heads during its Uncarrier 8.0 event that was held in late December. The wireless carrier announced a new take on the “rollover” plans by extending it your monthly data allotment (for postpaid accounts). Under T-Mobile’s Data Stash initiative, customers can rollover their unused data month-to-month and keep that amassed data pool for up to a year. T-Mobile even sweetened the deal by giving their customers a 10GB “Starter Stash” to kick things off. Today, T-Mobile is extending Data Stash to its prepaid plans starting on March 22. Data Stash will be available to Simple... Read more...
T-Mobile has a new trick up its sleeve that may be a precursor to its Uncarrier 9.0 event that is scheduled for March 18 in good ‘ol New York City. According to a limited number of customers that have received a text from T-Mobile, some of their phone lines are getting a complimentary upgrade to unlimited 4G LTE data (for a limited time). The text that customers received directs customers to a T-Mobile promotions pages that states: To thank you for being a loyal customer, some lines on your account are being upgraded to Unlimited 4G LTE data, starting April 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015—at...

Verizon Wireless already grabbed headlines earlier today with the announcement that pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge would go live on April 1. But the company has even more cause to celebrate thanks to J.D. Power’s “2015 U.S. Wireless Network Quality Performance Study.” J.D. Power’s semiannual study ranks America’s wireless carriers based on the following ten “problem areas” that customers may encounter on a daily basis when using their cell phones and tablets: Dropped callsCalls not connectedAudio issuesFailed/late voicemailsLost callsText transmission failuresLate text...
