T-Mobile confirms TV service launch postponed until 2019

Days after a report indicated as much, T-Mobile has confirmed that it will postpone its TV service launch until 2019.

T-Mobile iPhone eSIM support arrives with three prepaid plans

US officials pressure T-Mobile, Sprint parent companies to drop Huawei, too

US officials pressure T-Mobile, Sprint parent companies to drop Huawei, too

It would appear that the United States Government is putting pressure on Huawei not only inside the USA, but abroad as well. On concerns that the brand Huawei is a sort of spy for the Chinese state, the US Government effectively carpet-bombed Huawei out of North America - getting all major carriers to drop all Huawei brand products in the process. Now it would seem that the US government wants not only T-Mobile and Sprint to continue to avoid Huawei, it wants their parent companies to drop Huawei hardware as well.

T-Mobile, Verizon eSIM support happening real soon

T-Mobile, Verizon eSIM support happening real soon

Apple’s support for dual SIM, dual standby (DSDS) on this year’s iPhone generation was a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it finally gave what some iPhone owners have been requesting for years. On the other than, its implementation is based on a normal, physical SIM and a digital eSIM. The latter requires carriers to support the feature and as of yesterday, only AT&T does in the US. That, however, is changing soon with both Verizon and T-Mobile following not far behind.

T-Mobile Money is the Un-carrier’s second stab at mobile banking [UPDATE]

T-Mobile Money is the Un-carrier’s second stab at mobile banking [UPDATE]

T-Mobile has earned a reputation of kicking up hornets' nests to get its message across. It has embraced this characterization wholeheartedly and has in fact capitalized on it. The self-branded Un-carrier has initiated promos and deals meant to "upset" the mobile industry enough to make them rethink long-held beliefs and practices. Now it's trying to do the same for the banking industry with its still to be formally announced T-Mobile Money. But while it has a very slightly different name, it's a spiel we've actually heard before.

T-Mobile REVVL 2, REVVL 2 Plus dangle 2-year warranty offer

Smartphone prices are soaring higher and higher every year, sometimes with very little reason to. Some manufacturers try to steer the ship the other way but such is the unstoppable market trend. Ever the contrarian, “Un-carrier” T-Mobil insists you don’t really have to burn through your life savings to get a serviceable smartphone (while it does sell such wallet-burning models at the same time). You can, instead, just opt for one of T-Mobile’s two new REVVL 2 phones. That is if all you really wanted as a T-Mobile branded Android phone.
