We finally know why T-Mobile is always up for sale

We finally know why T-Mobile is always up for sale

T-Mobile’s Uncarrier approach is certainly exciting, and it’s given customers plenty of reason to drop that other carrier they may be on and give T-Mobile a shot. Still, quarter after quarter, T-Mobile talks up their growing customer base while reporting financial losses. Long-term, they may be in good shape. Their growth pattern may take years to result in reliable earnings, though. Parent company Deutsche Telekom has T-Mobile up for grabs, and now we know why: the Uncarrier isn’t meant as a standalone entity.

The smartest Net Neutrality comment just came from the oddest source

The smartest Net Neutrality comment just came from the oddest source

As the FCC prepares to rule on Net Neutrality next month, all parties are drawing their line in the sand. Whether interested parties like it or not, the FCC is going to have to make a ruling on the future of the Internet. Many mobile carriers like Verizon and AT&T are opposed to any kind of reclassification, which would make them move governable. Net Neutrality won’t make many friends for the FCC, but a new line of commentary from a strange source might be the wisest yet.

T-Mobile gained 8 million customers in 2014

T-Mobile gained 8 million customers in 2014

We were roundly impressed with T-Mobile in 2014, and it seems we weren’t alone. The company is reporting gains across the board, adding 1.3 million customers to its brand, and 2.1 million total customers in Q4 2014. Overall, they added 8.3 million new customers in 2014, and say their network covers 265 million users nationwide. Coming off a year of aggressive promotions and hefty challenges to competing carriers, T-Mobile has proven their Uncarrier scheme is working really well.

AT&T has a rollover data scheme, too (it’s just not as good as T-Mobile)

AT&T has a rollover data scheme, too (it’s just not as good as T-Mobile)

The last time we heard from T-Mobile, they were offering up rollover data via their ongoing ‘Uncarrier’ initiative. It was (and is) a stellar idea, but we wondered if any other carriers would be bold enough to follow suit. AT&T is on board, and has announced their version of shared data for subscribers, which will launch later this month. According to the carrier, 50 million customers will immediately feel the benefits. Sadly, they didn’t meet T-Mobile’s 10GB free ‘banked’ data.

Video: T-Mobile CEO John Legere’s cheesy 2014 recap

Video: T-Mobile CEO John Legere’s cheesy 2014 recap

Most CEOs send out nice letters or emails meant to rally their team into the new year, offering up platitudes about what a great job everyone did. T-Mobile’s CEO isn’t like those guys, though, which is why he and his company have released the video below. Though the message is the same, the phrasing is different. Great employees? Check. Lis of accomplishments? Yup. Remarks about how T-Mobile stands out from the crowd? Absolutely. Trash talk? It’s John Legere, so obviously.

T-Mobile, FTC settle for $90 mil in ‘cramming’ lawsuit

T-Mobile, FTC settle for $90 mil in ‘cramming’ lawsuit

After calling the claim “unfounded and without merit”, T-Mobile has agreed to settle with the FTC over charges they ‘crammed’ bills with unnecessary and unwarranted charges. At least $90 million will be returned to consumers who can prove T-Mobile charged them for goods or services without merit. The lawsuit stretches back to July, when the FTC said T-Mobile was guilty of “cramming”, a practice of adding charges to a customer’s monthly bill for ringtones and the like.

T-Mobile Data Stash — what you need to know

T-Mobile Data Stash — what you need to know

T-Mobile rolled out Data Stash today, which lets you roll your data over month-to-month, and just sounds super awesome. It is, too, at least at first blush. There’s not much trickery, here, but the wizard of data (I literally just made that up) John Legere is now firmly staking claim that data is important, and we want more of it. Is Data Stash all its cracked up to be, though? We examine the nuances of T-Mobile’s killer concept so you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into -- if you're even eligible.

T-Mobile rolls out ‘Data Stash’, rolls data over month-to-month

T-Mobile rolls out ‘Data Stash’, rolls data over month-to-month

Wow. That’s what we have to say right now about Uncarrier 8 from T-Mobile. Starting soon, T-Mobile customers can roll their data over month to month. Rather than have to pick your plan and hope for the best -- or worse, throttle yourself and how you use your phone to avoid extra charges -- T-Mobile is letting their “post-paid” customers roll data over month to month. In addition to all the other Uncarrier moves T-Mobile has made recently, it’s getting much more difficult to argue against having them as your service provider.

T-Mobile ‘Uncarrier 8.0′ borrows from Facebook with web chat

Here we go again! T-Mobile has announced their next ‘Uncarrier’ event today, bringing their staged industry disruption to level 8.0. Sadly, there’s no details or hints that we can go from to speculate on what might be happening this time around, but we’re also not going to have to wait long. The event is happening tomorrow morning, and is kind of a fireside chat with CEO Legere. T-Mobile’s announcement notes you can ask questions of Legere via Twitter, and he’ll answer some via the broadcast chat.
