T-Mobile JUMP On Demand plan lets you change phones 3x a year

T-Mobile JUMP On Demand plan lets you change phones 3x a year

The newest update to T-Mobile USA's plan to take over the wireless industry includes an update of their JUMP plan. While before this update, T-Mobile's JUMP plan allowed users to upgrade from one phone to another without a major fee, this new "JUMP! On Demand" plan allows users to swap phones up to three times a year. Where before, JUMP required T-Mobile users to pay a $10 per-month fee, this plan costs nothing extra per month. Like Missy Elliot, T-Mobile is remixing their own jams before the competition remixes it for them.

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.

The LG G4 is now in the US and here’s where to get it

LG has just fired the gun, signaling the widespread availability of its flagship in the US. Given the LG G4's rather high profile marketing, especially for its camera, and its admittedly enticing spec sheet, it might not be surprising to see quite a few interested buyers. Luckily for them, all major US carriers and even retailers like Best Buy and Amazon are game. Actually the number of sources and choices might be a bit overwhelming, so here we condense it into a few salient points on where to get your leather-back LG G4 and for how much.

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 brings BlackBerry Classic back for Uncarrier 9.0 ambitions

T-Mobile brings BlackBerry Classic back for Uncarrier 9.0 ambitions

The BlackBerry Classic is coming to T-Mobile. Let that sink in for a minute. You’re either really excited (because you’re a BlackBerry holdout), or a bit confused. Considering the history BlackBerry and T-Mobile have had of late, we’re with you on ‘confused’. Late last year, the two sides weren’t seeing eye-to-eye, with T-Mobile CEO John Legere likening BlackBerry to MySpace (ouch). BlackBerry CEO John Chen suggested BlackBerry faithful seek other carriers. Now, they’re all playing nice again.

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.

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 may now be the third largest carrier in the US

T-Mobile might just be the third largest carrier in the United States. Their recent earnings report gave interesting insight on the goings-on within T-Mobile, with their customer count being something we’ve been watching grow over time.

With regard to postpaid, T-Mobile added 1.1 million new customers, which is their third straight quarter with over one million new customers, and may possibly position T-Mobile as the third largest carrier in the US.
