On top of all that, the company told us which plans we'll need in order to tap into 5G and announced when pre-orders for its first consumer 5G phone, the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, will open up.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere is leaving: Here’s what we know

It's the end of an era for T-Mobile, as CEO John Legere announced today that he'll soon be stepping down from his position. The transition won't happen for a little while yet, but T-Mobile has already tapped a successor for Legere, confirming that current president and COO Mike Sievert will be picking up the mantle of CEO. Legere won't be leaving T-Mobile entirely, either, as he'll still be a member of the board after leaving the CEO's office.

New Motorola Razr is eSIM-only: Here’s what that means

New Motorola Razr is eSIM-only: Here’s what that means

The newest Motorola smartphone Moto Razr 2019 was revealed on November 13, 2019, with no SIM card. No physical SIM card, that is to say. There's SIM functionality in this device, but it's embedded in a piece of hardware soldered to the device's motherboard. That means that you can't just go buying this phone from Verizon then switch over to another carrier with a quick flip of the SIM card - because there is no SIM card.

AT&T Mobile Share price increase has one saving grace

AT&T Mobile Share price increase has one saving grace

Wireless carriers hiking plan pricing is nothing new, but we don't often see them attempting to frame those price hikes as if they're a gift to subscribers. That's exactly what AT&T is doing though, announcing today that it's giving customers on its Mobile Share plans more data each month, but it's also raising prices in the process. Customers, unsurprisingly, have no say in whether or not they get the extra data and therefore the price hike.

T-Mobile 5G rollout dates US-wide 600MHz coverage and 2 new phones

T-Mobile's 5G network will launch nationwide across the US on December 6th, the carrier has confirmed today, as part of a big push to convince regulators that the company's merger with Sprint should be given the go-ahead. The 5G deployment will use the carrier's 600 MHz spectrum, which is typically slower than the mmWave 5G that T-Mobile has already activated, but does come with a number of advantages.

Verizon’s Free Disney+ 12-month sub is the same old trap

Verizon’s Free Disney+ 12-month sub is the same old trap

There are good reasons to sign up for a year of Disney Plus (or Disney+) with Verizon, but there are good reasons to skip it, too. If you're the sort of person who'd intended on signing up for Disney+ in the first place, this is a great way to get in on the deal and avoid paying $7 a month for a year. If you weren't going to subscribe in the first place, this is a great way to get something "free" only to find later that you'll need to unsubscribe after the first 12 months or face a $7-per-month fee.
