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

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.

Nexus 9 LTE will land on T-Mobile first, Google Play later

Nexus 9 LTE will land on T-Mobile first, Google Play later

Looking for a Nexus 9 LTE? If you’re going to Google Play, you might be out of luck. The tablet is currently listed as “coming soon” via Google’s official device sales portal, but T-Mobile is here to rescue us from a tablet-less world. Starting today, T-Mobile will be selling the Nexus 9 LTE from their online “deals” site, The Underground. The Nexus 9 LTE isn’t cheap — it starts at $599 — but it’s really your only option if you want the connected Nexus tablet in time for the holidays.

New T-Mobile plan likely to cause more grief for AT&T, Verizon

New T-Mobile plan likely to cause more grief for AT&T, Verizon

T-Mobile has made no bones about it: they want you as a customer. If you’re not already a T-Mobile subscriber, they think you should be, and are aggressively pushing for it along the way. Their tactics (however you feel about them) seem to be working out just fine, too. A few new reports suggest AT&T and Verizon are both feeling the pinch, and are warning investors of an unexpected dip in subscriber numbers or lower earnings. Leaked info on a new T-Mobile plan suggests they’re not letting up, either.

T-Mobile delays Nexus 9 launch indefinitely

T-Mobile delays Nexus 9 launch indefinitely

T-Mobile sure does love Google. Even their outspoken CEO John Legere is hard-pressed to find something bad to say about the search giant, especially when it comes to their Nexus products. After being forced to push back the launch of Google’s Nexus 6 by a week, T-Mobile is once again having issues getting Nexus devices. This time, the Nexus 9 is the culprit, and leaked internal documents suggest T-Mobile is delaying the tablet launch indefinitely as a result.

FCC: T-Mobile to show honest stats on speed tests

FCC: T-Mobile to show honest stats on speed tests

With most data plans, throttling is something we all have to live with. At some point in the month, you might hit a threshold that downshifts your downloads, but to what extent? Most are left guessing at why that video won’t load, frustrated by the entire experience. Today, the FCC announces that T-Mobile has agreed to provide a clearer picture on what throttling means for you, and will release accurate details on throttled customer data speeds, rather than potential speeds your device isn’t getting.

T-Mobile makes Google Music free to stream with 26 other services

T-Mobile makes Google Music free to stream with 26 other services

This week T-Mobile is bringing the heat with an extension on their Music Freedom service which allows users to stream music without added data costs. That means that the music service you use to stream music - the app that probably uses the MOST data on your device - will no longer be counted against your data costs for the month with T-Mobile. This is a service that no other mobile carrier offers at this time - not on the ground, that is to say.
