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

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.

T-Mobile CEO may be hinting a merger is coming their way

T-Mobile CEO may be hinting a merger is coming their way

For quite some time, T-Mobile has been rumored for a merger or buyout. AT&T, Sprint, Dish, Iliad — you name them, T-Mobile has probably been rumored or in talks for a merger or acquisition. While T-Mobile CEO John Legere likes to slap away all talk of T-Mobile falling under the auspice of another company — and has even said he’s tired of talking mergers and acquisitions — he’s now making overtures that’s it’s inevitable, much like his boss has. In fact, Legere thinks it’s precisely how the industry will shake out over time.

Huawei Nexus 8 teased again (if you believe)

Huawei Nexus 8 teased again (if you believe)

This week we're having a peek at what very well could be - but probably isn't - the next Nexus smartphone from Google. What you're seeing here is a smartphone render in a video spot for Google Project Fi. This is Google's new data network working with T-Mobile USA and Sprint networks to bring data to the Nexus 6. Strange, then, that the video doesn't actually feature the Nexus 6 first, it features a rendering of a different device. It's a basic design, one that wouldn't be out of place amongst Huawei's current smartphone lineup.

T-Mobile might just be the third largest carrier in the United States.

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.

T-Mobile drops Xperia Z3 — is Xperia Z4 closer than we think?

As we start to see Xperia Z4 leaks rolling in, we’re left to assume the handset is on its way. Sony hasn’t sent out invitations to an event, though, so it’s left in limbo. Benchmarks and product shots give us an idea of what’s going on with Sony’s newest, but we still don’t have it. We’re also running out of ways to get an Xperia Z3, as T-Mobile has confirmed they’re no longer carrying the handset. That leaves Verizon as the only US carrier that is currently offering the Xperia Z3.

T-Mobile’s new coverage map shows real coverage in (almost) real time

T-Mobile’s new coverage map shows real coverage in (almost) real time

No matter where you go in this world, you’ll undoubtedly be curious about your coverage. Visit the carrier website, and buried deep in the sitemap lies a coverage map. An often out-of-date map that probably stretches the truth a bit about their coverage. Even in 2015, your coverage is a bit of a 'guesstimate'. T-Mobile is changing that, today unveiling a more accurate map of their coverage that depends on real-time feedback from actual customers, not assumed cell tower saturation.
