T-Mobile’s latest move simplifies your bill, credits you for low data usage

T-Mobile is once again making a move to differentiate itself from the rest of the big carriers in the US. The latest addition to its Uncarrier initiative may not be as attention grabbing as something like DIGITS was when it was revealed last month, but it's still a consumer-friendly move. 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 One Plus makes HD video streaming more affordable

T-Mobile One Plus makes HD video streaming more affordable

If you remember when T-Mobile One first came out the carrier wanted us all to think that it was going to be a cheaper way to get unlimited data, but there was one big catch. That catch had to do with the way T-Mobile limited streaming video to 480p streams only on the plan. You could get HD streaming, but to do so cost you a whopping $25 more per line. That caveat has been addressed somewhat with the new T-Mobile One Plus plan that was just announced.

T-Mobile lures AT&T converts with DirecTV Now new customer perk

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.

This is when your US Note 7 will die

This is when your US Note 7 will die

Samsung's decision to not just ask nicely for Galaxy Note 7 recall hold-outs to return the phone but brick it altogether has left some wondering "when will my Note 7 die?" Tired of waiting for remaining owners to come in for a refund, Samsung has opted to take more drastic actions. However, with the news that Verizon doesn't plan to release the new firmware, which prevents the problematic phablet's battery from charging, attention has turned to the other major US carriers to confirm when - or indeed if - their customers will receive it.

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. Just as well, DIGITS will allow its customers to use multiple phone numbers on a single device. At first blush, DIGITS may sound like some VOIP solutions that exist, and though there are some similarities, T-Mobile is trying to make the experience with DIGITS a little more fleshed out.

T-Mobile SyncUp DRIVE adds a 4G LTE hotspot to your car

T-Mobile has introduced SyncUp DRIVE, a new connected device that plugs into a car’s OBD-II port and provides access to vehicle data, as well as an in-car WiFi network via the carrier’s 4G LTE network. While devices like this aren’t unusual, T-Mobile says SyncUp DRIVE is the only available device of its kind that uses and shares 4G LTE — it doesn’t fail to point out that Verizon’s HUM works with 2G networks and doesn’t provide in-car WiFi.

T-Mobile offers unlocked Pixel credit, one ups Verizon

T-Mobile offers unlocked Pixel credit, one ups Verizon

T-Mobile has decided to one up Verizon: bring an unlocked Pixel handset to the Uncarrier, and you’ll get a $325 credit automatically. This is in comparison to Verizon, which is offering up to a $300 credit to those who get the Pixel. The catch here is that you have to sign up for T-Mobile ONE, the carrier's 'unlimited everything' plan, which may not be a big deal for most converts. Speaking about this, CEO John Legere said, “I’m a huge fan of what Google has done with the Pixel…"

The FCC has announced that T-Mobile will pay $48 million to settle a probe into its restrictions disclosures related to unlimited data.
