    Like we've been saying, these "buy one, get one" deals have been popping up like moles in a prairie. T-Mobile has another one going on right now. Will you take the hammer to this one? Simply put, all the Samsung Galaxy phones T-Mobile is offering are eligible for the deal. One phone has to be purchased on an installment plan while the other can either be financed or bought at full price. At least one new line is required. The offer is valid in all of the US and currently doesn't have an end date. Once you make your purchase, you'll need to head to this page within 30 days, enter in your ...

    It’s been roughly a month and a half since Sprint surprised its older, more devoted customers with an unusually early OS promotion to Android 6.0 for the ancient Galaxy S5 and S5 Sport, and at long last, T-Mobile follows the Now Network’s suit today. Of course, Magenta can’t update the GS5 Sport, seeing as how it never carried such a model of Samsung’s spring 2014 flagship, instead “only” sending Marshmallow goodies over-the-air to the standard Galaxy S5 version. The one made entirely of plastic, not metal or glass, with no rubber around its edges, but protected against water ...

    Broadcasters don't think they can make the moves they would need to make in the 39 months the FCC allotted them after the end of the 600MHz spectrum auction. So, how does T-Mobile think it can take advantage of spectrum it won't be able to feasibly work on past 2020? Well, at a MoffettNathanson summit in New York, the Un-carrier thinks that broadcasters have one big motivation for repacking as fast as they can: money. // f;f++)a[f].apply(i,r);var s=c[w[n]];return s&&s.push([h,n,r,i]),i}function p(e,t){g[e]=l(e).concat(t)}function l(e){return g[e]||[]}function d(e){return ...

    Right on schedule, America’s leading “Uncarrier” has earlier today picked up three new Android phones, ranging in price from $165 to $680, and obviously, covering all the hardware bases with low to mid to high-end specifications. Of course, by “right on schedule” we mean recently unveiled and leaked timelines, as at least two of these “new” handhelds are a little late to the T-Mobile availability party after earlier debuts on rival networks. But hey, it could be worse. Magenta isn’t following AT&T’s suit in refusing to sell the HTC 10 directly, providing GSM users ...

    More video content providers are putting on the magenta-tinted glasses to zero out data charges for T-Mobile customers. The Un-carrier announced that it has notched more than 80 services in total for its Binge On zero-rate scheme. Today marks the program's fifth expansion in its sixth month and adds what are technically 12 (and not 13) services, including: Google Play Music Great Big Story NBC Kiswe Ligonier Ministries NOGGIN Qello Concerts Radio Disney Univision Univision Noticias Spotify TIDAL Toon Goggles The streaming music services you see there also provide music ...

    Despite its young age, super-appealing design, ultra-high-end specifications, and apparently, solid box-office performance thus far, the Galaxy S7 deals keep piling up. After netting its very early adopters Gear VR and even Gear S2 freebies, Samsung’s “next big thing” was the star of several BOGO arrangements, as well as gratis TV promotions, gift card offers, and now, a tempting bundle at T-Mobile. For a limited time, i.e. until Saturday, May 21, both the flat and edge variants of the latest Android flagship come with Galaxy Grand Primes attached. No extra charge, no catches, no ...

    Leaks don't have to be all about iPhones, Galaxys, Huawei, Xiaomi, Nexus, any real flagships, really, etc. etc. Take ZTE  — it's said to be planning a device called the Zmax Pro, according to a source to VentureBeat's Evan Blass. While previous Zmax devices have stuck to 720p displays on large canvasses with Snapdragon 400-series processors, the Pro is said to be packing in a Snapdragon 617 (eight cores running at 1.5GHz) right under a six-inch full HD screen. 2GB of RAM may same a little weak for 2016, but there is 32GB of flash storage for the suffering. The rear camera looks to have ...

    Although it technically moved out of a two-year-long beta test back in the fall of 2013, “hybrid” mobile operator Republic Wireless continued to offer services that felt experimental and unripe for the mainstream segment. Until today, when a critical T-Mobile collaboration is officially announced, alongside network compatibility for seven of the most popular Android smartphones available stateside. Well, more like six, plus the entry-level Galaxy J3 (2016). The seven handhelds are manufactured by four of the top five US industry brands, and will range in price from $180 to $800. The ...

    Not only has the HTC 10 been formally introduced significantly later than the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5, but the beveled flagship also took longer to reach stores, including stateside, making it that much harder to overturn the company’s long-struggling financials all of a sudden. Worse yet, the second largest of America’s big four carriers has no intention to sell the 5.2-incher itself, though it’ll of course support GSM unlocked variants. Meanwhile, killer deals like the S7 and G5 BOGO arrangements offered on several networks shortly after their launches are nowhere to be found ...

    We don't know why T-Mobile has decided to link this promotion to a romcom made in 2001 about the last day of summer camp in 1981, but maybe the Un-carrier's just excited for the Netflix episodic series reboot coming July 31. That's a whole lot of promotion without really promoting. From tomorrow, new and existing family plans with four lines can each get 6GB buckets of LTE data for $120 a month. A purchase of a new Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge can also net customers a free Galaxy Grand Prime (via prepaid card). The deal is not valid in Connecticut, Rhode Island or Miami-Dade County ...

    The “Uncarrier” likes to keep both its most generous and tight-fisted subscribers happy, with plenty of smartphone choices currently offered for essentially every budget, and a pair of affordable new Androids also in the pipeline for a commercial T-Mo rollout later this month. Specifically, next Wednesday, on May 18, though it’s a bit of a stretch to call one of the two handhelds new. That’s because T-Mobile apparently intends to pick up last year’s Samsung Galaxy J7 variant instead of the 2016 edition, with plastic everything and only a 3,000 mAh battery in tow. But the 2015 ...

    After 54 years of hostility and indifference, US President Barack Obama and his Cuban counterpart Raul Castro reached a historic agreement in July 2015 to restore diplomatic relations between the two countries, reestablish the American embassy in Havana, and move closer than ever to lifting an age-old commercial, economic, and financial embargo. It then only took Verizon a couple of short months to bring its roaming services to Cuba, followed by Sprint in November. Meanwhile, AT&T is still in negotiations with ETECSA to make the obligatory move, and T-Mobile today previews its own ...

    After busting Verizon’s balls in a couple of witty TV commercials, including one starring the infamous Steve Harvey that debuted at the Super Bowl, T-Mobile lifted the foot off the competition-lampooning pedal a little. Sure, there was also the mildly amusing “DeATTh Star” stunt for Star Wars Day last week, but compared to some of John Legere’s past antics, that felt subdued and even a tad lazy. Consider it the calm before the storm though, as T-Mo’s CEO might be cooking up his most epic trolling effort yet. Legere recently spent no less than $21,800 (from company money, we ...

    The roll-out of the Un-carrier X promotion didn't go as smooth as John Legere first thought. The T-Mobile CEO had to do a little fighting against the tide, but it seems that Binge On has settled into calmer waters for now. So, for Un-carrier 11, it figures that VentureBeat's Evan Blass is reporting that Big Magenta is sticking firmly to uncontroversial territory (at least to the consumer). According to Blass's source, on June 6, we should expect to see a new app called "T-Mobile Tuesdays" with a #GetThanked hashtag campaign. Users will have access to weekly freebies from Domino's Pizza, ...

    If you happen to be just fine with oldies but goldies (and not updates) and are on T-Mobile, has Samsung got a deal for you. The company's offering a $150 rebate if you purchase any of last year's flagships at T-Mobile. You'll still be paying full price for the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 edge, the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 to T-Mobile, but if you do buy in before June 14, you can redeem the $150 in the form of a check up through July 13 (or July 14 if you partake in the postal system). You'll get your money in four to six weeks. By the way, we told a small lie — if you catch ...

    T-Mobile celebrated May the Fourth by holding the DeATTh Star against AT&T, now Kyocera is celebrating in its own way by announcing that the Un-carrier has picked up its DuraForce XD. As you may recall, the Kyocera DuraForce XD was originally launched on said DeATTh Star and was billed as one tough cookie. Indeed, it was one that survived a barrage of tough conditions in our testing. If you want a 5.7-inch phablet that can stand up to MIL-STD 810G requirements and IP68 water-resistance, you'll need to belly up $449.99 in total. Rugged is coming to @TMobile. May the (Dura)Force be with ...

    May 4, aka May the Fourth, aka unofficial Star Wars Day, is probably a happier celebration today than it’s been for over three decades, following the historic commercial success and overwhelmingly positive critical reception of the 2015 “Force Awakens” reboot. Granted, it’s also a more somber commemoration than usual, in the absence of our beloved Han Solo (spoiler alert?), but you can always rely on Internet memes and… T-Mobile pranks to put a smile on your face on such mixed-feeling occasions. Yes, T-Mo CEO John Legere strikes back at AT&T for “padding” its latest ...

    Your mother may not understand what you're talking about when she asks for Wi-Fi help. But if you do love her, she does deserve a little appreciation and more than just a couple texts a year. Then again, if you have retail holiday fatigue, you might want to avoid the carriers this week. T-Mobile is one of the networks trying to juice up its sales for mother's sake. It went through some major price cuts on the Galaxy Note 5, LG V10 refurbs and G Stylo 2, and sure, there's the typical discount blast for accessories ranging from floral cases to beet-dyed Beats merchandise. Get ready, though, ...

Luckily, T-Mobile comes to your rescue with a bunch of time-limited smartphone deals, and there’s something to be had for every budget. Looking to spare no expense, and get one of the world’s best Android phablets from the “Uncarrier”?

    Should you upgrade from the LG G4 to the spanking new, modular G5? How about from the nearly two year-old G3? Any self-respecting Android power user would yell out a resolute “hell, yeah” to at least the latter question, but the truth is you can probably hold on to the LG G3 a while longer without worrying of critical system lag and stuff like that. It’s getting a little long in the tooth hardware-wise, we won’t deny that, but as far as software goes, it’s just as up-to-date as both the G4 and G5. Now on AT&T and T-Mobile in addition to Verizon and international unlocked ...

    It’s no secret that the US currently trails way behind countries like Singapore, South Korea, Australia, Canada, the UK and even Romania, Oman or Latvia in real-life LTE performance, also failing to beat Korea, Japan, Hong Kong or Kuwait as far as high-speed mobile network coverage goes. But now mobile app intelligence platform Apteligent and industry analyst firm STL Partners have devised a simple tool called a mobile network experience index to provide further insight into just how much America’s big four carriers suck. Based on “a huge amount of real world information”, the ...

    Table flipper T-Mobile's earnings are out today and, not to compete with Apple, it had better numbers to report. In fact, it gets downright boastful. Total revenues were up 10.6 percent from this quarter last year to $8.6 billion with 1 million postpaid subscribers gained — good enough for Big Magenta's seventh consecutive quarter with gains better than a million — and 807,000 prepaid adds. Those adds bring T-Mobile's base up to 65.5 million subscribers total. The company turned positive on net income with a $479 million gain. Average revenue per user for T-Mobile's postpaid division ...

    You may have a beef against contracts because they don't reveal the real cost of what you're paying for each month. T-Mobile led the industry in cutting the contracts from cellular parlance. Now, some Floridians may come to sue T-Mobile for some truly obscure costs. The class action says that the carrier misrepresenting its "no contract" claim, making customers sign not only service contracts, but device payment contracts (on those equipment installment plans) and charging the entire balance of the contract — as opposed to continuing the monthly payments — if customers decide to end ...

    While some manufacturers are content to target shoppers with just a handful of device options, Alcatel's a company that likes to play the field, and it's never been shy about introducing lots of new hardware, with widely varying device sizes. Back at CES earlier this year the manufacturer did just that with its POP lineup, delivering not just new phones, but also the quite thin POP 10 tablet. Now it's up to more of the same as it expands the POP family even further, announcing the new POP 7 LTE Lollipop tablet. If you're looking for lightning-charged specs and top-of-the-line components, ...

    If these numbers are anything to base conclusions on, we think that Sprint will have a hard time catching up to the speeding magenta motorcycle that is T-Mobile. Consumer Intelligence Research Partners has just analyzed the churn — where customers switch cell service from and to — through a survey of 500 participants who activated new service for the first quarter. CIRP compared results between AT&T, Sprint (with Boost Mobile), Verizon and T-Mobile (with MetroPCS). In terms of subscriber loss, Sprint leads the pack of four with a 27 percent gain relative to its numbers from the ...
