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...
T-Mobile CEO John Legere isn’t just content with passing Sprint to become America’s third largest wireless carrier. Legere is looking to kick dirt in Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure’s face and give him a purple nurple for good measure. Legere wants Sprint customers to jump on a winning team, so he is offering them an extra $200 — something that it is not offering to AT&T or Verizon Wireless customers — to switch to T-Mobile. In Legere’s words, he’s hoping to “brighten the holidays for Sprint customers.” The $200 comes in the form of a bill credit for each Sprint line that is transferred to the Un-carrier.... Read more...
T-Mobile, now the third largest wireless carrier in the United States (behind Verizon and AT&T), is planning a series of special promotions for the holiday season. It's called Un-carrier Unwrapped and for the next month, T-Mobile will introduce a "special gift" for customers each week, starting with three full months of unlimited high-speed 4G LTE data. The three free months of data applies to all active Simple Choice postpaid customers, including business customers.

T-Mobile's been on a mission to disrupt the wireless market, hence why it calls itself the un-carrier. One of the more recent and controversial initiatives to come from T-Mobile is Binge On, a program that allows that allows customers to access certain streaming services without it counting against their data caps. On the surface, that sounds like a net neutrality violation, though Federal Communication Commission Tom Wheeler says there's nothing wrong with what T-Mobile's doing.Just the opposite, Mr. Wheeler praised the program as "innovative" when a reporter asked if it raises any net neutrality...

T-Mobile's flagship prepaid brand, MetroPCS, is rolling out a few new updates that will help customers stay under their data cap. One of those updates is a new Music Unlimited initiative that allows customers on qualifying plans to stream all the music they want from any of 33 streaming services without it counting against their data allotment. Among the list of participants is a combination of big and lesser known services, everything from Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, and Google Music to Digitally Imported, Saavn, BandCamp, and Tidal Music, to name just a few of the nearly three dozen available...

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 CEO John Legere loves to entice customers with attractive pricing, launch new initiatives which sparks the wireless industry to move in a positive direction for customers and troll his competitors, often with reckless abandon. But for all his bravado, it takes a lot of capital to fix one of T-Mobile’s biggest problems — inadequate nationwide service coverage compared to larger rivals (namely, Verizon Wireless and AT&T). T-Mobile is fighting that problem head on with the release of its new 4G LTE CellSpot. The CellSpot is your own miniature low-power LTE tower — it measures just 8.5”... 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...

T-Mobile CEO John Legere T-Mobile CEO John Legere is no stranger to the limelight. He is a heavy user of Twitter (he has 1.74 million followers) and he absolutely loves to throw daggers at the competition — especially America’s two largest wireless carriers: Verizon Wireless and AT&T. But no matter how much Legere ribs the competition, they rarely engage him to trade insults so it’s often a one-way street (with the exception of a tiny spat with Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure). However, that all changed this morning when Legere retweeted the following image out to his followers in an attempt to mock... 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...
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...
