iPhones on T-Mobile getting hit with blue screen of death, crashes

iPhones on T-Mobile getting hit with blue screen of death, crashes

If you have an iPhone and T-Mobile is your carrier of choice, there's a growing issue that you should be aware of. It seems an increasing number of users are finding their device affected crashes and restarts, plus a return of the Windows error of old in the form of a "blue screen of death." Judging by reports of the issue, it seems to have started only in the last 24 hours or so. Again, this isn't affecting all iPhones, only those on T-Mobile as of now.

iOS 9 Continuity to support T-Mobile Wi-Fi calls

iOS 9 Continuity to support T-Mobile Wi-Fi calls

Almost exactly last year, Apple revealed the Continuity feature of the then upcoming OS X Yosemite, a feature that, among other things, allowed Mac users to make and take calls on their Macs as long as their iPhone or iPad is within range. Useful as that may be, there was one subset of users that were left out in the cold. Those on T-Mobile that used Wi-Fi calling couldn't get their hands on Continuity. That is, until later this year when iOS 9 rolls out with that particular feature along for the ride.

Dish, T-Mobile tipped to be in merger talk

Dish Network, claimes to be the nation's 2nd biggest cable provider, and T-Mobile, the very outspoken fourth player in the country's "four carrier" wireless industry (at least according to the FCC) are said to be discussing a possible merger scenario, with some claiming a very positive outcome for the two companies is close at hand. If true, the industry could witness one of the biggest mergers between traditional media and communications companies, both of which are being threatened by the growing strength of the Internet.

T-Mobile is now luring Verizon customers

T-Mobile is now luring Verizon customers

The US carrier with the most outspoken CEO is now training its crosshairs on Big Red. After having painted AT&T as its rival and targeting it for most of its marketing campaigns, T-Mobile is now turning its attention to Verizon with a new "Never Settle" campaign. Associations with OnePlus' slogan aside, T-Mobile's proposal to Verizon subscribers is very simple. Try out T-Mobile for two weeks and if you don't like it, just hand back your T-Mobile phone and go back to your old life. If you do want to switch, however, T-Mobile will take care of you.

Alcatel ONETOUCH POP Astro brings LTE to the masses

Alcatel ONETOUCH POP Astro brings LTE to the masses

Budget smartphones are a dime a dozen. When faced with a horde of competitors, differentiation could be a matter of life or death for a product line. Although Alcatel has brought its affordable ONETOUCH brand to the US before, it is now trying to reach for the starts with the new POP Astro. While still staying true to the promise of extremely affordable handsets with more or less acceptable hardware specs, the ONETOUCH POP Astro promises something that not every smartphone of its kind don't have: LTE connectivity.

Google tipped to launch MVNO service Wednesday

Google tipped to launch MVNO service Wednesday

It seems that Google's carrier plans are closer than most of us thought. Although many presumed, not without reason, that Google would use the I/O 2015 conference to make the formal reveal, it seems that the tech giant is ready to flip the switch this Wednesday. If true, it could provide a startling new model for wireless carriers that could upset the industry even if only indirectly. Although Google is openly stating that it isn't exactly competing with established carriers, the promises of this "Project Fi" service could prove otherwise.

US carriers are stripping down the Galaxy S6 even further

US carriers are stripping down the Galaxy S6 even further

Samsung's phones are notorious for the amount of bloatware they come with, exacerbated by carriers' own bloatware on top. For this round, however, Samsung was noted to have put the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge on a software diet. Well, as much as it can concede. It still has some, of course, but not exactly as bad as before. US carriers seem to also be getting into the rhythm. It's not exactly surprising to hear that carriers are modifying their versions of the Galaxy S6, but some of the changes are rather puzzling at times.

Sprint to hand deliver smartphones to some customers

Sprint to hand deliver smartphones to some customers

Competition in the smartphone world is very stiff. Major carriers are constantly offering to pay termination fees and give away free or cut priced smartphones to lure in new customers. Carrier Sprint is one of the hardest hit in the industry with customers leaving in droves. In an effort to stem the subscriber losses, Sprint has outlined a new plan that sounds very expensive.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Review

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Review

Samsung has a lackluster track record making flagship smartphones with serious lust-appeal. Its plastic-bodied Galaxy range was the Camry trying to play in Mercedes and Audi territory, earnestly ticking the boxes on the spec sheet, but failing to grasp that owners care about a sense of prestige as much they do a roster of the latest functionality. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and its flashy Galaxy S6 edge sibling are a lesson hard-learned, then, with both patchy sales and increasingly vocal criticism in 2014 demanding changes be made. 2015 might well be the fiercest year in phone tech yet; these two are evidence of Samsung's A-game.

MetroPCS unveils a suprisingly low prepaid plan promo

MetroPCS unveils a suprisingly low prepaid plan promo

It might not exactly be part of its "Un-carrier" marketing, but T-Mobile's prepaid arm is definitely getting into the spirit. Starting today, subscribers can walk into any MetroPCS store or authorized dealer to pick up a new prepaid plan that will get them unlimited text, unlimited voice, and unlimited data. All for just the price of $30 a month, which is quite an insane low price for those who don't want a contract, are on a tight budget, but still want the clout and backing of a known name like T-Mobile.
