Galaxy A20 is free for those switching to Metro by T-Mobile

Samsung's Galaxy A series don't often get to the US unlike the higher-end Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. When they do, they're often available only through carriers.

T-MoBell T-Mobile Taco Bell stores indicate apocalypse is near

That's right, there'll soon be "T-MoBell" stores in an area near you. It's not immediately clear whether people will ever literally see co-branded stores that have full services from either T-Mobile or Taco Bell, but for now, they'll appear on the same sort of ticket: "Smartphones + Tacos" in time for the Super Bowl. Is it just me, or does this remind anyone else of Snakes on a Plane for some reason? It might also be The End Times are near - we'll just have to wait and see!

REVVLRY and REVVLRY+ continue T-Mobile’s line of budget phones

Smartphones are getting more powerful but few will deny that they are also getting more expensive. At least if you keep looking at the high-end which doesn't seem to show any sign of slowing down when it comes to price increases. Not everyone, however, will need or even want all the bells and whistles of those more expensive flagships. For that kind of smartphone user under T-Mobile's care, the uncarrier is offering not one but two REVVL phones to get their money's worth.

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

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.
