MetroPCS unveils a suprisingly low prepaid plan promo

MetroPCS unveils a suprisingly low prepaid plan promo

It might not exactly be part of its "Un-carrier" marketing, but T-Mobile's prepaid arm is definitely getting into the spirit. Starting today, subscribers can walk into any MetroPCS store or authorized dealer to pick up a new prepaid plan that will get them unlimited text, unlimited voice, and unlimited data.

T-Mobile Music Freedom gains three more music services

T-Mobile has been working hard to lure customers away from the other major mobile providers in the US. It has done this by paying for the early termination fees from some carriers and by offering things that other carriers don’t. One of the things that T-Mobile offers that other carriers don’t is called Music Freedom.

T-Mobile ready to offer you an ‘Uncontract’ to lock-in rates, plans

T-Mobile ready to offer you an ‘Uncontract’ to lock-in rates, plans

Uncarrier 9 might have taken dead aim at business, but T-Mobile isn’t stopping there. Though their business aim was impressive, T-Mobile is still keeping an eye on the consumer market. If you’re stuck in a payment plan with another carrier, T-Mobile will buy you out. They call it ‘Carrier Freedom’, and it’s pretty stellar. The carrier will cover up to $650 per phone (up to ten lines) so you can get out of your pay-per-month or lease plan with another carrier.

T-Mobile going after small business with Uncarrier 9

With Uncarrier 9, the expectations were big. T-Mobile typically comes forward when they’ve got something significant to announce, and today was no different. In celebrating two years of ‘Uncarrier’ moves, T-Mobile CEO John Legere — Red Bull in hand — went on a review of the carrier’s growth since Uncarrier began. So what exactly is ‘Uncarrier 9’? Exactly as we suspected, T-Mobile is attacking enterprise. According to CEO John Leger, T-Mobile is going to do for business what they’ve done for the average consumer.

Carrier apps appear in Nexus 6: no surprise

Carrier apps appear in Nexus 6: no surprise

Just as Google said they would, Verizon apps have appeared on the Nexus 6 after the device's update to Android 5.1. As it was foretold at the dawn of Android 5.0 Lollipop, so it has come to pass: Nexus devices with carrier apps onboard. Just like it was in the past. Just as it shall be in the future. While these apps will not be kept by some users, most never see them - and some will expect that they'd been there all along, as all Verizon phones have similar apps.

New LTE study shows T-Mobile is best overall carrier for data in US

New LTE study shows T-Mobile is best overall carrier for data in US

LTE has quickly become the standard by which we measure our carriers. If we’re not on an LTE signal, we just aren’t happy. A new report from Open Signal (who measure their findings via metadata collected from their awesome mobile app) shows just how much we rely on LTE across the globe. Perhaps more importantly, their findings also give us a clue on which carrier is the best when it comes to LTE. What we find is that T-Mobile is absolutely schooling their competition.

T-Mobile fires out invite for NYC event

T-Mobile, busy doing its best to usurp the wireless carrier industry and grab for itself a bigger roster of subscribers, is back with another tease promising something big to be coming in the near future. What is it? The company doesn't say, of course, and we can't say for sure, though it no doubt has something to do its its seemingly endless "Uncarrier" efforts. The event will take place in New York City, and says the carrier, "This one's a real piece of work!"

T-Mobile planning LTE via WiFi for launch in 2016

T-Mobile planning LTE via WiFi for launch in 2016

As we learned from the last FCC auction, mobile spectrum is expensive. Really expensive. Verizon and AT&T walked away with $20 billion worth of spectrum, while Dish quietly snapped up another $13 billion. T-Mobile was surprisingly quiet, but noted a bit later on they were planning to wait for low-band spectrum to come available via the next FCC auction. Rather than buy spectrum, they’re planning to use unregulated spectrum typically used for WiFi.

T-Mobile update page tells you where your Lollipop update is

Everyone wants the latest Android update, Lollipop 5.0. What good is a phone without the latest and greatest update, anyway?

Recently, some Android device users have been left in the lurch as updates seem to pass them by. Now, T-Mobile users can track their latest Android software update (most likely Lollipop 5.0) on the new software update status page.
