The expansion of T-Mobile's brand of 4G LTE has been suggested to be going quite a bit quicker than planned, the CEO of the company expressing this onstage at a special event in NYC.

T-Mobile “JUMP” unlimited upgrades and what it means for consumers

T-Mobile “JUMP” unlimited upgrades and what it means for consumers

When you sit down and read the rules involved in the current web of oddities known as smartphone contracts, it's easy to find surprisingly complex ins and outs. T-Mobile has suggested several times over the past several months that they will be aiming to take an axe to tradition, making way for their own, much more "consumer friendly" rules. Here with what they're calling "Jump", T-Mobile says they'll be turning the upgrade process on its head, allowing consumers to upgrade from their current smartphone to a new phone with the same prices a new customer would pay.

Nokia Lumia 521 Review

If you thought the Nokia Lumia 520 was good, boy are you going to have a great time with the Nokia Lumia 521. Essentially the same device as you'll be getting internationally, this T-Mobile iteration of the entry-level Windows Phone 8 device brings the same package (with slightly different radio connections and a few extra apps) to the USA, here with the same bright white back cover as we saw across the sea (one of three, as it were).

Huawei PRISM II coming to T-Mobile: all naming conventions coincidental

The Huawei PRISM II is coming to T-Mobile, this a smartphone that succeeds a relatively unknown original with the same carrier from months past. This device is not aiming to break the bank, nor is it headed to the top of the "must have" lists of any top-tier hero phone collects lists. Instead it's another effort from Huawei to attach itself to the United States smartphone market without too much of a hubbub surrounding it: it's got T-Mobile branding on all sides, and that's it.

T-Mobile GALAXY S 4 aims to undercut competition through July

T-Mobile GALAXY S 4 aims to undercut competition through July

It's not that T-Mobile will stop trying to compete with Verizon and AT&T when July comes, but here in the first few warm weeks of summer the pink carrier will make a move on one of the most popular out-the-gate Android smartphones of the year with a unique proposal. While earlier this year it was apparent that T-Mobile wasn't going to take their fourth place standing in the USA-based mobile carriers race as long as they could help it, it would appear that it didn't just end with the iPhone 5. Here T-Mobile has made the case for the Samsung GALAXY S 4 as well.
