Verizon raised more than a few eyebrows last week when it announced that it was raising data caps for all plans and adding unlimited overage data, albeit at snail-like speeds for its XL and XXL data plans. While giving customers added perks is nothing new, actually raising prices in the process is uncommon — customers will in effect see a $5 to $10 increase in their monthly bills with these newest changes. Not surprisingly, T-Mobile has come out swinging against Verizon by “giving families a break from industry rate hikes and restrictions right when customers need it most.” Beginning July...

It's hard to argue that one of the best things on planet Earth is pizza. Many people are up for eating pizza regardless of the time of day, and regardless of what flavor it is. Pizza is just amazing, and it holds the power to shut down entire promotional deals - as Domino's is finding out. Via its T-Mobile Tuesdays app, which rewards customers for their patronage, this week's deal proved to be a bit too much for dough spinners. To help its customers get their munch on, T-Mobile worked out a deal where its customers could get a free pizza pie, a deal which seems totally normal. But when the terms... Read more...
If you’re one of the few out there running a BlackBerry Priv on T-Mobile’s wireless network, you’ll be happy to learn that the flagship Android smartphone is just now receiving Marshmallow. BlackBerry first rolled out an open beta for Marshmallow in early May for unlocked devices, and the update started heading to carrier-backed Priv smartphones last month. The new build is designated AAF153 and will update your Priv to Android 6.0.1. In addition, it also brings some performance and stability improvements for the smartphone. This is likely bitter sweet news, as T-Mobile has already bailed on the... Read more...
If you’re a fan of Google’s Project Fi hybrid wireless service, you’ll be happy to learn that the company is expanding network coverage with a third wireless carrier partner: U.S. Cellular. U.S. Cellular will join T-Mobile and Sprint, which have provided a patchwork of coverage across the United States for Project Fi subscribers since its inception. U.S. Cellular has service in 23 states, providing 4G LTE coverage to 99 percent of its subscribers in both rural and urban areas. The addition of a third wireless carrier is great news for those that were put off by the combined coverage are of T-Mobile... Read more...
By now, we’re all familiar with T-Mobile’s Uncarrier initiatives. The company has shaken up the wireless industry with promotions like 200MB of free tablet data/month for life, Data Stash and Binge On, which have garnered the attention of not only customers, but also government regulators. Uncarrier 11.0 isn’t so much about added perks for your wireless line, but unrelated freebies that T-Mobile is doling out to its loyal customers. With Stock Up, T-Mobile is giving its customers a piece of the company, literally. New and existing T-Mobile customers will be given a single share of TMUS common stock... Read more...
Flowers and candy are nice sentiments for mom on Mother's Day, but once the roses wither away and the candy is consumed, what's left? T-Mobile has another idea, one that might help you atone for the guilt of not calling your mother enough, as you're reminded whenever you visit. Instead of flowers, get mom an LG G5 and score yourself a prepaid card for a free LG Gpad F 8.0 tablet. Maybe you want to keep the phone for yourself and hope your mom will appreciate a tablet. Not so sure? Then consider buying two LG G5 handsets and quit stressing over it. T-Mobile softens the financial blow by not only... Read more...
T-Mobile’s brash CEO John Legere relishes the idea of trashing competitors (especially Verizon Wireless) and touting the superiority of his plans and features that are aimed at pleasing customers rather than shareholders. But criticism is a two-way street, and AT&T is looking for a little bit of vengeance via its Cricket Wireless prepaid wireless service. Cricket Wireless today announced a new $70 plan that gives you unlimited talk, text and data. Cricket Wireless called out T-Mobile quite a few times when announcing the new plan, noting that T-Mobile charges customer $25 more per month for... Read more...
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...
A new T-Mobile leak has just hit the Web, and unlike most leaks, it won’t take long to figure out if this one is true or not. That's because the leak reflects an announcement that could take place tomorrow, where T-Mobile unveils plans that off data-only service for smartphones. It's an interesting move, and one that T-Mobile says is all about continuing its mission to give customers mobile "freedom". If a data-only package sounds a bit restrictive, consider this: a lot of people nowadays don't use the cellular service on their phone as much as data, and if the data package... Read more...
Following the terrorist bombings in Brussels on Tuesday that killed over 30 people and left many others injured, all four major wireless carriers in the United States—AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon— are offering customers free phone calling and text messaging services to Belgium for various periods of time. As it stands right now, Sprint is offering the longest period of free calls and texting. The wireless carrier said it will lift fees for calls and texts made from the U.S. to Belgium up through March 31. In addition, calling and texting charges for customers internationally roaming...

T-Mobile’s Binge On initiative has definitely won a lot of fans in the form of customers that can now stream unlimited video at the expense of reduced quality (480p). However, the company has also garnered a number of detractors, including YouTube, which was unwillingly sucked into Binge On’s vortex with reduced streaming quality and throttling even though it had not signed up to be a partner for the service. “Reducing data charges can be good for users, but it doesn’t justify throttling all video services, especially without explicit user consent,” said a YouTube spokesman in December. Well, it... Read more...
AT&T offered a rather compelling Buy One, Get One (BOGO) offer yesterday for Samsung’s excellent new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge flagship smartphones. Customers would have to purchase the first smartphone (upgrade or new line) and add a second phone as a new line. Once three months of service have been completed, you’ll receive $695 in bill credits spanning the course of 30 months to fully offset the cost of a Galaxy S7 or to put towards the cost of the more expensive Galaxy S7 Edge. T-Mobile CEO John Legere likely saw AT&T’s terms and let out an uproarious belly laugh, as the third-place... Read more...
Have you ever wondered what it would to operate without a filter and just say whatever the heck it is that's on your mind? Most of us aren't afforded that luxury—bosses don't take kindly to being told their haircut looks it was done by a blind beaver—but we can live vicariously through T-Mobile CEO John Legere. If there was any lingering doubt that he's allowed to do and say pretty much whatever he wants, when it wants, it was removed when he turned his competitors' earning calls into drinking games. It started with Verizon. Just ahead of Big Red's earnings call last month, Legere brought attention... Read more...
We were under the impression that the Alcatel’s latest foray into the Windows 10 Mobile market would arrive last month, but it simply wasn’t meant to be. Thankfully, those that were looking forward to the budget smartphone didn’t have long to wait — the OneTouch Fierce XL is now available direct from T-Mobile. The OneTouch Fierce XL is unlikely to get your pulse racing if you’re into fast, feature-packed smartphones. Alcatel’s Windows 10 Mobile is strictly for the low-end of the smartphone market as witnessed by the following specs: 1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 with 2GB RAM 16GB onboard storage... Read more...
