T-Mobile 5G device headache unsettles 2019 rollout [Updated]

T-Mobile's full 5G network isn't going to be ready for public consumption quite as soon as expected, with the carrier cautioning that the initial batch of handsets won't have quite the experience you might expect.

T-Mobile, Verizon take shots at AT&T’s bogus 5G logo

Yesterday, AT&T began rolling out an update to some Android phones that replaced the "LTE" icon users typically see with a new icon that shows "5G E."

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

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.
