T-Mobile strategy claimed to dwarf AT&T NumberSync

T-Mobile strategy claimed to dwarf AT&T NumberSync

It's an amusing week for customers and observers of AT&T and T-Mobile. The eternal rivalry between the two major US carriers have seemingly reached comic proportions. After a short episode regarding suggestions emailed to CEOs, the fight moves over to shared numbers of multiple devices. After AT&T formally revealed its NumberSync plans, T-Mobile quickly reacated, claiming that they have something in the works that will not only dwarf AT&T's offering, it would also be one that customers actually want and not what a carrier wants users to want.

T-Mobile customers got hacked: here’s what you should do

AT&T calls out T-Mobile, Sprint for offering WiFi calling without FCC approval

AT&T calls out T-Mobile, Sprint for offering WiFi calling without FCC approval

Apple's iOS 9 and new iPhones now have support for WiFi calling, a feature that lets users place voice calls over a WiFi connection instead of using cellular. US carriers Sprint and T-Mobile have already launched the feature on their networks, but some are wondering why AT&T hasn't when it was expected to debut with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Well, as AT&T is putting it, their rivals have implemented WiFi calling without the approval of the FCC.

T-Mobile trades in old iPhones for iPhone 6s in JUMP on Demand

T-Mobile trades in old iPhones for iPhone 6s in JUMP on Demand

Trying to figure out where and how to get a new iPhone every time a new one is released is always an adventure, to put it mildly. This year, Apple is both adding to the confusion by offering its own upgrade program but also trying to simply the choice by taking carriers out of the equation. T-Mobile, the carrier that fancies itself as the Un-carrier, is also making it simple. Provided you already own an iPhone and are, of course, a T-Mobile subscriber in the first place.

Coolpad, T-Mobile to launch Coolpad Rogue smartphone

Chinese manufacturer Coolpad isn't exactly someone you always read about in the US, but it does get around. In 2012, for example, it partnered with MetroPCS to bring the Coolpad Quattro to the US. Now, it is making its first ever partnership with a "tier-one" US carrier to bring the Coolpad Rogue as well. Available from T-Mobile at the end of the month, the Rogue is the epitome of a budget-friendly entry level smartphone, giving T-Mobile subscribers another low-cost option in their choice of Android smartphones.

Unsatisfied with trying to conquer the US, T-Mobile wants to spread its Un-carrier words beyond the country' borders.

T-Mobile starts rolling out native video calling feature

T-Mobile starts rolling out native video calling feature

Most smartphones have a front-facing camera, but video calling is still far from common. Despite it not being as convenient as voice calls in certain situations, it's also more difficult to arrange -- you'll need the other person to install the same app (Messenger, for example) in order to place a video call, and will need to toggle between apps depending on what your friends are using. T-Mobile is, as has become its focus, aiming to change this. Today the wireless carrier announced native video calls, which places the new calling feature right in the phone's dialer.

T-Mobile to hunt down tethering “thieves”

T-Mobile to hunt down tethering “thieves”

T-Mobile CEO John Legere has been known never to mince words when it came to the company's rivals. Now he is using that same aggressive attitude towards not rivals but "customers" that are gaming and hacking the system in order to abuse the carrier's network. To be more specific, he will be going after a small subset of individuals whom he describes as "stealing" data from T-Mobile by finding ways to go around set limits to LTE tethering, raking in terabytes of data per month.

Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ T-Mobile release bumped up to tomorrow

Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ T-Mobile release bumped up to tomorrow

Apparently T-Mobile USA customers weren't super thrilled when they heard the news about preorders earlier today. Verizon customers are getting their Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ devices before T-Mobile customers, and they were jumping mad about it. As such, CEO John Legere decided to push up the launch of their own models of the device, making them available for general sale starting tomorrow. This means the device will be online only starting at 6AM PT through T-Mobile USA.

The 128GB Galaxy Note 5 Samsung forgot to mention [UPDATE]

The 128GB Galaxy Note 5 Samsung forgot to mention [UPDATE]

The largest of the Galaxy Note 5 models with 128GB of internal storage appeared to be missing from initial release information earlier today. Samsung's listings for each individual model of the device through their pre-order portal tells a different story. What Samsung's pre-order portal suggests is that not only IS there a 128GB model, it's being prepared for all four of the top mobile data carriers in the United States. This should quench some of the thirst heavy-duty users were speaking of earlier today when only the smaller two internal storage sizes were revealed: 32 and 64GB.
