T-Mobile HTC 10 launch date set for May 18, freebies included

It's been a month since HTC unveiled its latest flagship and, unlike a certain other Korean Android OEM, it doesn't seem to be in a hurry to get it out the market, even in the US. In fact, it will only be next week that those on T-Mobile will be able to get their hands on the HTC 10. The "Uncarrier" is indeed launching the still metal clad smartphone on 18th May and to keep things hot in summer, it will be throwing in some freebies for good measure.

T-Mobile customers will get roaming cell service in Cuba this summer

Thanks to some diplomatic relations between the two countries, US citizens are able to visit Cuba for first time in many years.

Kyocera DuraForce XD become’s T-Mobile’s first rugged device

As fancy and sophisticated as flagship smartphones are today, very few of them can brag about surviving traumatic experiences, as many bend and stress tests love to prove. Even Samsung's Galaxy S7, with its high IP68 dust and water proof rating, isn't as touch when it comes to strong forces. That is one market that Kyocera pretty much has in its pocket. It has been churning out super rugged smartphones like crazy and its DuraForce XD is just one of the latest to make its way into the market, this time into T-Mobile's roster of smartphones.

T-Mobile enhances voice with EVS as it pushes data-only plans

The folks at T-Mobile USA are aiming to out-do the industry on clarity of voice calling with a technology they call Enhanced Voice Services (EVS). According to the network that just began offering data plans with the option of skipping out on voice, EVS is a system which improves voice call reliability and creates "higher-fidelity calls" in the process. This service is already active on the LG G5 on T-Mobile, and will be active on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge soon.

Mobile carriers finally ditching voice calls

Mobile carriers finally ditching voice calls

It would appear that T-Mobile is leading the charge with a number of data-only smartphone plans starting later this month. While a massive number of smartphone users use very little or no portion of their allotted voice call minutes here in the present, T-Mobile may be the first carrier to realize this, and act. With a plan. A Simple Choice mobile internet plan. The future is here - voice calling is only a little-used app, after all.

Google agrees to T-Mobile’s “Binge On” terms because they’re “opt-out”

Google agrees to T-Mobile’s “Binge On” terms because they’re “opt-out”

T-Mobile's "Binge On" service allows more video apps to stream media to devices without using up the customer's data allotment. While for the end customer this may seem like a really great deal, (who doesn't like so-called free data?), it continues to hold the door open for internet services to charge different amounts of money for different internet services. True Net Neutrality requires that all internet be treated the same - here that's just not true.

Galaxy S7 deals: The best price for Samsung’s flagship release

Galaxy S7 deals: The best price for Samsung’s flagship release

While almost immediately after the Samsung Galaxy S7 was revealed, we had pricing, it's quickly become apparent that carriers aren't going to leave themselves in a position to be outbid. T-Mobile, for example, is just one mobile device carrier inside the USA that's begun the war with a buy-one-get-one deal. As if the next-generation bits and pieces of the Galaxy S7 and/or Galaxy S7 Edge weren't already enough. Of course T-Mobile's situation here includes a rebate, so it's not as if you're getting a device entirely for free right out the gate. First you have to pay for it - you've also got to add a line for this deal to be able to work.
