T-Mobile going after small business with Uncarrier 9

T-Mobile going after small business with Uncarrier 9

With Uncarrier 9, the expectations were big. T-Mobile typically comes forward when they’ve got something significant to announce, and today was no different. In celebrating two years of ‘Uncarrier’ moves, T-Mobile CEO John Legere — Red Bull in hand — went on a review of the carrier’s growth since Uncarrier began. So what exactly is ‘Uncarrier 9’? Exactly as we suspected, T-Mobile is attacking enterprise. According to CEO John Leger, T-Mobile is going to do for business what they’ve done for the average consumer.

T-Mobile brings Data Stash to prepaid customers

As their latest ‘uncarrier’ event approaches, T-Mobile is shaking things up in prepaid. Now, qualifying Simple Choice prepaid plans can take advantage of T-Mobile’s Data Stash, which lets users bank unused data for use later on. That also means T-Mobile prepaid customers via Simple Choice will get that impressive 10GB Start Stash, which is like a digital nest egg for data. Prepaid data stashing is set to start on March 22, so expect to have your 10GB stash ready for you at that time.

Carrier apps appear in Nexus 6: no surprise

Carrier apps appear in Nexus 6: no surprise

Just as Google said they would, Verizon apps have appeared on the Nexus 6 after the device's update to Android 5.1. As it was foretold at the dawn of Android 5.0 Lollipop, so it has come to pass: Nexus devices with carrier apps onboard. Just like it was in the past. Just as it shall be in the future. While these apps will not be kept by some users, most never see them - and some will expect that they'd been there all along, as all Verizon phones have similar apps.

New LTE study shows T-Mobile is best overall carrier for data in US

New LTE study shows T-Mobile is best overall carrier for data in US

LTE has quickly become the standard by which we measure our carriers. If we’re not on an LTE signal, we just aren’t happy. A new report from Open Signal (who measure their findings via metadata collected from their awesome mobile app) shows just how much we rely on LTE across the globe. Perhaps more importantly, their findings also give us a clue on which carrier is the best when it comes to LTE. What we find is that T-Mobile is absolutely schooling their competition.

T-Mobile fires out invite for NYC event

T-Mobile fires out invite for NYC event

T-Mobile, busy doing its best to usurp the wireless carrier industry and grab for itself a bigger roster of subscribers, is back with another tease promising something big to be coming in the near future. What is it? The company doesn't say, of course, and we can't say for sure, though it no doubt has something to do its its seemingly endless "Uncarrier" efforts. The event will take place in New York City, and says the carrier, "This one's a real piece of work!"

T-Mobile planning LTE via WiFi for launch in 2016

T-Mobile planning LTE via WiFi for launch in 2016

As we learned from the last FCC auction, mobile spectrum is expensive. Really expensive. Verizon and AT&T walked away with $20 billion worth of spectrum, while Dish quietly snapped up another $13 billion. T-Mobile was surprisingly quiet, but noted a bit later on they were planning to wait for low-band spectrum to come available via the next FCC auction. Rather than buy spectrum, they’re planning to use unregulated spectrum typically used for WiFi.

T-Mobile update page tells you where your Lollipop update is

T-Mobile update page tells you where your Lollipop update is

Everyone wants the latest Android update, Lollipop 5.0. What good is a phone without the latest and greatest update, anyway? Updates can mean more than glossy new icons and added superficial functions. Sometimes, an update can mean the difference between smooth sailing and your favorite app constantly crashing. Recently, some Android device users have been left in the lurch as updates seem to pass them by. Now, T-Mobile users can track their latest Android software update (most likely Lollipop 5.0) on the new software update status page.

Dish co-founder takes over as CEO — is mobile the next step?

Dish co-founder takes over as CEO — is mobile the next step?

Today, Dish is announcing their CEO is stepping down. Joseph Clayton took over for Dish co-founder Charlie Erdman in 2011, and was charged with transforming Dish’s business. He was at the head of the table as Dish acquired a massive portfolio of spectrum (relative to their needs), and also helped bring us Sling TV. In his absence, Erdman will reclaim the CEO role. The appointment of Erdman, who sat on Dish’s board since stepping down as CEO, isn’t temporary, either, suggesting even more change is afoot.

T-Mobile teaser confirms “edgy”, “Six Appeal” of Galaxy S6

T-Mobile teaser confirms “edgy”, “Six Appeal” of Galaxy S6

We've seen quite a few leaks and teasers about the Galaxy S6, some coming from Samsung itself. With MWC 2015 so close, however, even mobile carriers are jumping on the train. T-Mobile has just put up its pre-release email registration page and, while that act itself is nothing newsworthy, the carrier is throwing in a teaser our way as well. It is probably the clearest preview of the Galaxy S6 we've ever had, but, like any good teaser, it still leaves some questions open for us to think about.

T-Mobile has positive Q4 2014, CEO says they’re bigger than Sprint

T-Mobile has positive Q4 2014, CEO says they’re bigger than Sprint

T-Mobile’s Uncarrier approach might be welcome for consumers, but on a corporate level — it’s hit and miss. Quarterly earnings calls from T-Mobile typically result in customer gains, but overall net loss where it counts. In reporting their Q4 2014 results, T-Mobile gave us all reason to once again believe Uncarrier will work, as they’ve announced $101 million net profit. Taking into account their last overly positive quarter, Q2 2014, T-Mobile is in the black for 2014 to the tune of $247 million.
