T-Mobile gives a SCORE! to those who can’t JUMP! [UPDATE]

T-Mobile seems to be really intent in giving its customers a fighting chance at the latest smartphones, even those who are normally ineligible for the carrier's programs. Last week, T-Mobile introduced "Smartphone Equality" for those whose credit ratings don't exactly meet the qualifications but have been paying their bills on time for 12 months in a row. Now T-Mobile is offering a new program called SCORE!, designed to let those ineligible for its JUMP! offer to also switch to a new device after 6 or 12 months.

T-Mobile promises Smartphone Equality for the loyal

You've undoubtedly heard them, the rapid-fire "terms and conditions apply" chatter after any radio or TV advert promising Apple or Samsung's latest and greatest for a minimal price. T&Cs are a fact of life, but if your credit score doesn't meet the grade then devices and service could end up being far more expensive.

T-Mobile is hoping that it will continue the carrier's pole position among prepaid options, as well as draw in a few more customers concerned by overage charges.

HTC One M8 for Windows sneaks into T-Mobile

Windows Phone devices outside of the Nokia, now Microsoft, Lumia line do exist but they might as well be non-existent given the rather low profile they have. HTC and Microsoft, however, wanted to change all that and offer the platform's fans a truly high-end option. Now, the HTC One M8 with Windows edition has finally completed its US carrier round, rather quietly creeping into T-Mobile's online catalog. With HTC's admirable design and hardware, this smartphone could very well be the Windows Phone flagship, if the OS can catch up.

T-Mobile CEO: Don’t buy your iPad from us

T-Mobile CEO: Don’t buy your iPad from us

Outspoken T-Mobile CEO John Legere has weighed in on the ongoing Apple SIM confusion, highlighting the discrepancies between carriers in how they support (or sabotage) Apple's scheme to pick and choose with data plan flexibility. Apple SIM was, at least as Apple originally intended it, a way to bypass carrier lock-in, but the networks themselves refused to be so readily sidelined. Meanwhile, Legere also had a surprising reason for why when you go into a T-Mobile store and buy an iPad it comes with a SIM locked to his network - and an even more surprising solution.
