    Although AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint (especially T-Mo) are all rapidly closing the gap to Verizon in terms of both cellular coverage and network reliability, there’s still no disputing the king. That said, Big Red has its problems in certain areas, with strong signal sometimes feeling like a utopian dream, not to mention the numerous independent reports claiming at least Magenta comfortably eclipses the overall market leader when it comes to download speeds. We don’t know about the latter, but the former can be easily solved in VZW-connected homes and at work, courtesy of the new ...

    Yesterday was a big day for a certain semiconductor company that saw its smartphone chip domination threatened last year through its own fault, but which seems to recover very well and quickly regain its industry trail-blazing reputation. The high-end Snapdragon 820, mid-range SD625, 435 and 425, plus the wearable-designed Snapdragon Wear 2100 processors are however only the beginning of Qualcomm’s 2016 ushering of new mobile technology eras, with the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem also announced as an “important milestone” in network speed progress. As the name suggests, the ...

    It's a known fact that all networks have their dead spots. T-Mobile CEO readily admits that, but only after preceding that claim by announcing that his network has expanded coverage to the extent that the AT&T and Verizon are at right now. And while Un-carrier X is just days away, it seems that Big Magenta got a bit too restless. It decided to pull an #UncarrierAmped move on its 7.0 proclamation, delivering Wi-Fi hotspots to its customers. Now, T-Mobile's (almost) giving away "CellSpots" that takes outlet power and a broadband internet connection, converts it to band-2 UMTS and band-4 ...

    Even in 2015, one of the worst parts about buying a smartphone in the US is the associated wireless plan. Oftentimes, that plan can work out to even more than you pay for the smartphone itself – and even if it's not, it represents a huge reason why many have stayed away from purchasing a smartphone. The big four carriers don't offer buyers much of a deal. Going with T-Mobile, easily the most affordable of the bunch, still has you paying at least $50 a month even if you're not using much of the allotted minutes, text messages, and data. So how do you get around that? An MVNO (mobile ...

    T-Mobile is the most interesting carrier in the United States. Since John Legere came aboard as CEO in September 2012, the company has transformed from a staid, conflicted brand trying too hard to be "hip" to something legitimately compelling. T-Mobile's "Uncarrier" push has seen the company nab the iPhone, wipe out international roaming charges, offer earlier device upgrades, eliminate early termination fees, and even pay the termination fees of those switching to its network. Combined with Legere's unconventional antics and a bold new approach to marketing its services, these changes ...

    Very sad news for all of you who purchased the budget-minded Nokia Lumia 810 with the promise that T-Mobile would unlock the Band 4 LTE that's hidden inside the chassis. As it turns out, even though the company made some sort of promise that all the devices with the hardware capabilities would get updated in order to use their new 4G LTE network, well, it seems that either T-Mobile is seeing this as another business opportunity to sell phones, or Nokia is. In a very short statement today, T-Mobile has made their stand official, and it doesn't seem they'll go back on it: Statement from ...
