T-Mobile Sprint merger might mean Boost goes to DISH

T-Mobile Sprint merger might mean Boost goes to DISH

Sprint and T-Mobile, in case you haven't heard the news, are two companies that really want to merge. Regulators with the US Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission, however, are apprehensive about letting the deal go through because it would effectively leave the market with just three major carriers instead of four. In order to sway the opinions of regulators, Sprint and T-Mobile have agreed to sell off some assets, namely Boost Mobile, which is a prepaid carrier owned by Sprint.

Amazon interest in Boost Mobile could save Sprint, T-Mobile merger

The marriage of T-Mobile and Sprint has been years in the making and, depending on who you ask, it's either happening soon or not at all. The merger of the two carriers has been swaying this way and that but the latest rumors suggest that there is just one hurdle left and it's a big one: convincing the US Department of Justice. Fortunately for the carriers, help seems to be on the way but from the most unlikely of sources: Amazon.

T-Mobile may need to create competing carrier for Sprint merger deal

T-Mobile may need to create competing carrier for Sprint merger deal

If T-Mobile wants the Sprint merger to happen, it may need to create a competitor with its own wireless network to get approval. The requirement comes from the Department of Justice, according to a new leak, which claims the department's antitrust division seeks the new carrier to ensure consumers have an adequate number of service options. Without this requirement, the number of national carriers in the US would be reduced from four to three under the merger.

T-Mobile Pixel 3a won’t support RCS

T-Mobile Pixel 3a won’t support RCS

There may have been a great deal of rejoicing when Google announced that the Pixel 3a and even the Pixel 3 would no longer be a Verizon exclusive. Unfortunately, that might not mean that they will all be treated equal. Even as early as now, one fine print is coming to light after the rejoicing has died down. It turns out, T-Mobile won't be supporting RCS on Google's Pixel phones, casting both the carrier as well as the fledgling messaging system in a very negative light.

Four US carriers sued for selling location data to third-parties

Four US carriers sued for selling location data to third-parties

2018 was a big year for privacy and not in a good way. It was a year where privacy violations were exposed left and right and not all of them involved Facebook. Just as scandalous was the revelation that the four major US carriers have, at one point or another, sold their customer's location data to third-parties, which then ended up with bounty hunters and illegal users. Although AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon have promised to stop that practice, customers are still taking them to court for it.

T-Mobile Money looks to shake things up with no-fee banking

Back in November, T-Mobile decided it was time to tackle the banking industry and rolled out a new service called T-Mobile Money. This wasn't the first time T-Mobile tried to break into banking, but its first attempt - which started in 2014 as T-Mobile Mobile Money - didn't get off the ground in the way the company was hoping it would. November's launch of T-Mobile Money was a small-scale one, but today, it's rolling out across the US.

T-Mobile Pixel 3 launch tipped for spring confusion

If you don't want to buy an unlocked Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL from the Google Play Store, you don't have many other options. You can always pick up a used Pixel 3, but those wanting to finance a phone through a carrier have to go through Verizon, as the Pixel 3 is a carrier exclusive. Now that may all be changing, assuming a new report is accurate.

T-Mobile Home Internet pilot promises low-cost 5G if Sprint merger approved

T-Mobile is launching a home internet package, cutting the cable cord and opting for wireless-only service, though it's not the 5G you might expect. Instead, the T-Mobile Home Internet pilot - which will presumably get a more catchy name, should it graduate to a full product - uses LTE, with the carrier aiming to get users living in areas typically poorly served by wireline broadband online.
