T-Mobile dangles Netflix incentive to push Galaxy S7 and S7 edge

We’re not too far away from the Samsung Galaxy S8’s debut, and ahead of that comes a new carrier push to get the current-gen Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge phones into buyers’ hands.

Google turns on RCS messaging for some T-Mobile users

Google turns on RCS messaging for some T-Mobile users

Sending messages via our smartphones has become a less than simple affair. SMS, the age-old medium of messages, can no longer meet the needs of modern conversations, many of which include images or, at the very least, emojis. That is why Google is getting behind RCS, short for Rich Communication Services, and has apparently enabled the feature in its Messenger app for a very limited number of T-Mobile subscribers, giving them functionality that people will most likely immediately associate with Apple’s iMessage.

T-Mobile nixes sale tax on new smartphone purchases

T-Mobile has announced what it calls its own version of the Boston Tea Party, one that doesn’t involve throwing away ‘a bunch of perfectly good tea to do it.’ The promotion?

The Uncarrier is also offering a new rebate perk for those who switch their line to T-Mobile.

T-Mobile gives AT&T transplants a free year of Hulu

A few weeks back, T-Mobile announced a new scheme to tempt mobile customers away from AT&T by paying for a year of DirecTV NOW through a series of bill credits. This gave those customers one of the perks of an AT&T plan without actually having to deal with AT&T. T-Mobile just decided to sweeten the pot a bit, announcing that those who switched from AT&T for the DirecTV NOW promotion are also eligible to receive a free year of Hulu as well.

LG Aristo on T-Mobile, MetroPCS offer bang, style for buck

Buying a smartphone, more often than not, involves a series of compromises, usually between price, feature, and design. Lately, however, design has stopped being an issue, with even the most wallet-friendly models sporting better-looking bodies. Take for example the LG Aristo, now available on T-Mobile and MetroPCS, which is, through and through, a lower mid-range smartphone, but one that you won’t be embarrassed to hold in public.

T-Mobile is once again making a move to differentiate itself from the rest of the big carriers in the US.

Later on this month, new customers signing up for T-Mobile's ONE plan will find that their monthly bill is a lot less crowded than bills from the other carriers.

T-Mobile has thrown an amusing little jab at AT&T, and is now offering the latter carrier's customers free DirecTV Now service for switching to the Uncarrier.

T-Mobile’s DIGITS allows for multiple phone numbers on a single device

T-Mobile has introduced DIGITS, a new voice over LTE feature that will allow customers to use their phone numbers on a variety of internet-connected devices.
