T-Mobile Binge On gets 14 more services, Legere speaks up

T-Mobile Binge On gets 14 more services, Legere speaks up

T-Mobile's Binge On near unlimited video streaming feature has become the carrier's most popular Un-carrier moves. At least according to the carrier itself. To prove how popular it is even among streaming video providers, it is expanding its list way ahead of schedule, hinting at the strong demand by providers to join the party. Of course, not everyone is happy about it, particularly YouTube and privacy watchdog EFF, and T-Mobile might even face a formal legal complaint in the future. And of course, CEO John Legere has a few, maybe more than a few, words to say about that.

ZTE Avid Plus lands on T-Mobile, soon on MetroPCS

With the big smartphone OEMs are relatively silent at CES 2016, the opportunity for Chinese brands to take center stage is huge. Huawei already unleashed a flood of announcements of devices, both new and slightly new with a fresh coat of paint. Now it's ZTE's turn to get the spotlight but it isn't doing it alone. It has partnered with Un-carrier T-Mobile to announce the arrival of the entry level ZTE Avid Plus in the US market.

Verizon baits switchers with $650 per line

Verizon baits switchers with $650 per line

This morning we received an ugly Christmas sweater in the mail from Verizon to announce $650 in contract-ending switch cash. Weird. "Everyone has that one gift they'd like to like to exchange for something better: maybe that not-so-cool holiday sweater... or the wrong network." Clever. So Verizon has this deal for people who use a different carrier for their smartphone and want to switch, giving them "up to" $650 USD per line in the process.

YouTube up in arms over T-Mobile throttling video streaming

YouTube up in arms over T-Mobile throttling video streaming

Last month, T-Mobile announced a new program that, on the surface seemed like a great deal. Following its unlimited music streaming offer, the carrier unveiled Binge On, which lets users stream video to their hearts' content without cutting into their data allocation. But that comes at the price of quality, a price that not all video streaming services are willing to pay without their consent and is something that YouTube is raising its voice against.

T-Mobile offers free Hulu subscription to Verizon customers

T-Mobile offers free Hulu subscription to Verizon customers

Last month T-Mobile aimed its sights at Sprint, by offering customers who switch from Sprint a $200 credit for every line that they bring over. That's a pretty hefty amount, especially if you've got a family or even a business plan that you're switching. T-Mobile said that they had plans to entice customers on other carriers, and they're starting to deliver on that.

AT&T grandfathered unlimited plans pricing hike incoming [UPDATE]

AT&T grandfathered unlimited plans pricing hike incoming [UPDATE]

The release date for the increase of prices for AT&T's grandfathered Unlimited Data plans has struck - coming your way this February. At that time, AT&T will hike the price from $30 for an unlimited data plan - which is insane by today's standards - to $35 USD. SO it's not so terrible. For now. This keeps AT&T's prices below the hikes of their main competition, with Verizon's still at $49 a month and T-Mobile's at $45. Then there's the throttling. Always with the throttling.

T-Mobile teases Sprint subscribers with $200 a line bounty

T-Mobile teases Sprint subscribers with $200 a line bounty

Mobile phone carriers are interesting. They always seem to be trying their hardest to undercut the competition, and lure customers away from their current provider. This is, of course, almost always good for the customer, as it usually means discounts. And in the case of T-Mobile, it means cold, hard cash.

MetroPCS website gave hackers easy access to 10 million subscribers’ data

MetroPCS website gave hackers easy access to 10 million subscribers’ data

It seems that poor security and engineering behind the website of US carrier MetroPCS would've allowed hackers to make off with the personal data of over 10 million subscribers. At least, until it was fixed just earlier this month. In a new report from Motherboard, it was revealed that a pair of security researchers discovered a bug in the MetroPCS website that left data including customer's addresses and their phone's serial number exposed to cybercriminals.
