T-Mobile ‘ghost calls’ are disrupting a 911 call center in Dallas

T-Mobile ‘ghost calls’ are disrupting a 911 call center in Dallas

It seems a 911 call center in Dallas has had persistent troubles with 'ghost calls' from T-Mobile, and that problem may have led to at least two deaths as backlogs prevented legitimate calls from getting through. The problem is said to have been ongoing since November 2016, with an attempted fix in January proving ineffective. A bug of some sort is responsible for the so-called ghost calls, but no solid solutions appear present.

T-Mobile, Sprint merger may have SoftBank put it all on the line

T-Mobile, Sprint merger may have SoftBank put it all on the line

Today we're hearing a whopper of a rumor that could have pretty big implications for the US carrier space. SoftBank is apparently eager to see Sprint, one of its subsidiaries, merge with T-Mobile, but resistance from T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom would make such a merger difficult. With Deutsche Telekom unwilling to sell its stake in T-Mobile, it sounds like SoftBank is prepared to put a lot on the line - namely, giving up its majority share in Sprint.

Unlimited Data plans from Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint: a brief review

In a matter of just a few days, we've gone from two major US carriers offering unlimited data plans to all four. After the past few years, it seems very strange to say this, but unlimited data is back. This time around, though, these plans come with a lot of caveats, and it can be hard to keep things straight between AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. So, if you're in the market for a new carrier and these unlimited plans have piqued your interest, which one should you go with? Hopefully this guide helps clear some things up.

T-Mobile ONE plan upgrades to counter Verizon Unlimited Data

T-Mobile ONE plan upgrades to counter Verizon Unlimited Data

Not wishing to be outdone by the new Verizon Unlimited Plan, T-Mobile USA has announced an update to its ONE plan that improves both video quality and tethering data. The news comes in the aftermath of Verizon resurrecting its "true" unlimited data plan, offering subscribers a tariff with no upper ceiling on how much data they can use (though throttling does kick in if you get particularly excessive). Now, T-Mobile's John Legere says his network is updating its flagship plan to maintain parity.

FCC drops net neutrality investigations into AT&T, Verizon

FCC drops net neutrality investigations into AT&T, Verizon

Right through December of last year, the FCC had ongoing investigations into telecom giants including AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile over their use of zero-rated data services, viewing them anti-competitive and in violation of net neutrality rules. Unfortunately, these investigations were opened under outgoing FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, and part of President Trump's restaffing has been appointing Ajit Pai as the new head. In turn, the agency has also revealed that it's dropping the investigations.

T-Mobile dangles Netflix incentive to push Galaxy S7 and S7 edge

We’re not too far away from the Samsung Galaxy S8’s debut, and ahead of that comes a new carrier push to get the current-gen Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge phones into buyers’ hands. T-Mobile is hoping to push some of these handsets out the door by offering a new Netflix promo, one that’ll no doubt appeal to the movie-lovers and deal seekers out there: an entire year of Netflix on the house.

T-Mobile nixes sale tax on new smartphone purchases

T-Mobile nixes sale tax on new smartphone purchases

T-Mobile has announced what it calls its own version of the Boston Tea Party, one that doesn’t involve throwing away ‘a bunch of perfectly good tea to do it.’ The promotion? Nixing the sales tax for new smartphone purchases, ultimately lowering the amount it takes to pick up a new handset. The Uncarrier is also offering a new rebate perk for those who switch their line to T-Mobile.

T-Mobile gives AT&T transplants a free year of Hulu

T-Mobile gives AT&T transplants a free year of Hulu

A few weeks back, T-Mobile announced a new scheme to tempt mobile customers away from AT&T by paying for a year of DirecTV NOW through a series of bill credits. This gave those customers one of the perks of an AT&T plan without actually having to deal with AT&T. T-Mobile just decided to sweeten the pot a bit, announcing that those who switched from AT&T for the DirecTV NOW promotion are also eligible to receive a free year of Hulu as well.

AT&T pulls the plug on its 2G network

We knew it was coming, but now AT&T has made it official: the carrier's 2G network is no more. AT&T announced this week that it has shut down its 2G network, a move that's been years in the making. The kicker is that the shutdown happened without most people even realizing it, as AT&T said the network has been inactive since January 1.

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

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.
