When companies advertise unlimited data plans for its customers and then renege on that promise, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) definitely wants some answers. The latest wireless company to come under the watchful eye of the FCC is none other than T-Mobile, which has long touted its unlimited data plans as an advantage over its competition. However, the company began throttling “data hogs” on its unlimited plans back in 2015 if they consumed more than 17GB of data per month (the “Top 3 percent” according to T-Mobile). This “magical” threshold for throttling was not explicitly made... Read more...
T-Mobile really wants to get you to purchase brand new LG V20 Android flagship, and it’s tossing all kinds of freebies at customers to get them to bite. T-Mobile today confirmed that the smartphone will have a retail cost of $769.99 for those that choose to purchase it off-contract or you can choose from one of its installments plans. You can purchase the LG V20 for $49.99 down and $30 per month for 24 months using T-Mobile’s interest-free equipment installment plan. Or if you prefer JUMP! on Demand, you’ll lay out $0 up front and pay $34 per month for 18 months. But here’s where things get interesting;... Read more...
If you been dying to get your hands on LG’s new V20 Android 7.0 flagship, the wait will soon be over. AT&T and T-Mobile today both announced that they will begin offering the phone on October 28th. AT&T plans to sell the LG V20 on NEXT for $27.67 per month for 30 months, or $34.59 per month for 24 months. If you work out the math, that gives the smartphone a retail price of $830. For its part, T-Mobile hasn’t given any exact pricing details for the LG V20, but has indicated that those that purchase the smartphone will receive a free pair of Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H3 headphones,...

T-Mobile recently signaled the end of data plans as you know them with the introduction of a singular option (with add-ons, of course), taking jabs at Verizon in the process, and now it's claiming bragging rights over its biggest rival in network performance. Make that more bragging rights—T-Mobile says its 4G LTE network is already the fastest, and now it's even speedier thanks to the roll out of 4x4 MIMO. "Verizon loves to scream about the massive amounts of money they’ve spent on their network over the last decade. It is a staggering, mind-blowing sum of money. But, here’s something even more...

T-Mobile earlier this month dealt what it hoped would be a major blow to Verizon and AT&T, the two top dogs in wireless, by eliminating data plans altogether and introducing T-Mobile One, an unlimited everything plan for one low monthly price. It generated a lot of buzz, and now T-Mobile is amping things up with faster mobile hotspot data and a One Plus, a premium connectivity add-on. To start with, T-Mobile is quadrupling the speed for mobile hotspot data on its One plan to 3G, which effectively bumps up the transfer rate from 128kbps to 512kbps. It's still unlimited, so you don't need to... Read more...
Sprint just announced Unlimited Freedom Premium, the sister plan to their recently-launched Unlimited Freedom. The plan is targeted at customers who want to stream videos, music and games at a higher resolution. Unlimited Freedom Premium is intentionally supposed to undercut T-Mobile. Sprint’s Unlimited Freedom Premium plan offers high resolution streaming for $80 USD a month for one user or $140 a month for two. The plan provides HD streaming for videos at up to 1080p, HD music streaming at up to 1.5 Mbps, and gaming streaming at up to 8 Mbps. Unlimited talk and text are included. The deal is... Read more...
Things are getting pretty nasty in the wireless carrier wars. Verizon Wireless and AT&T recently revamped their mobile plans with little fanfare — both companies juggled prices and data allotments while dropping overage charges (in exchange for throttled data speeds) in an effort to become more customer-friendly. T-Mobile fired back with T-Mobile ONE unlimited plans that seem great on the surface, but charge you extra for HD video streaming and full 4G LTE tethering speeds. But of course, T-Mobile CEO John Legere couldn’t announce the new plans without using inflammatory language, stating,... Read more...
Verizon Wireless and AT&T may have revamped their data plans during the past month and dropped overage fees, but that’s small potatoes to third-place wireless carrier T-Mobile. The boys and gals in magenta killed overage fees long ago, and today CEO John Legere is looking to stab a stake through the heart of the two companies that he often vilifies. Legere today unveiled T-Mobile ONE, which gives customers unlimited everything for one low monthly price — unlimited data, talk, text, and standard definition video are included. “Best of all, our customers will never have to track, monitor...

If you blinked you might have missed that HTC's flagship smartphone was ever available at T-Mobile. Well it was, but don't bother looking for the HTC 10 at T-Mobile at this point, because the wireless carrier served up an eviction notice to its apparently unwanted tenant and booted the smartphone from its stores just two months after its release. It seems a bit unusual, though perhaps the HTC 10 just wasn't selling enough units to hold T-Mobile's interest. This wouldn't be the first time T-Mobile quickly showed a smartphone the door after not generating enough sales. It did the same thing to BlackBerry's... Read more...
If you like to binge watch TV, Binge On might be the product for you. T-Mobile just snagged ABC, Apple Music, Disney, DISH Anywhere, Fox Now, Nat Geo TV, and now includes more than one hundred other streaming services. What is Binge On? Binge On debuted in 2015 as part of T-Mobile’s Un-carrier initiative. The 2013 Un-carrier campaign introduced a streamlined plan structure that dropped contracts, subsidized phones, overage fees for data, and early termination fees. Binge On was a continuation of the goal to kill unnecessary fees. T-Mobile customers on certain Simple Choice plans can stream... Read more...
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you’ve most definitely heard about Pokémon Go. The mobile game for Android and iOS has simply taken the world by storm and has surpassed mighty Candy Crush to become the biggest mobile game in U.S. history. T-Mobile, always a company to seize on an opportunity to offer a new wide-eyed promotion or spit in the face of the competition, is also jumping on the Pokémon Go bandwagon. The company announced today that it is giving all of its new and existing customers free, unlimited data when playing Pokémon Go. So you can go searching for a Krabby... Read more...
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...
