    Remember back when voice minutes were what you looked at when weighing cellular service plans? Five hundred here, one thousand there? And we were so obsessive over taking full advantage of these precious minutes that carriers started offering “rollover” plans, where the unused minutes from one month wouldn't evaporate at the end of the billing cycle, but add themselves to your allotment for the following month. With 2015 nearly upon us, minutes are old news, and these days its data on eveyone's mind. T-Mobile figures what worked for minutes will work for data, and in today's latest ...

    Wow. Uncarrier 5.0 is hot off the press, but... what's this? Uncarrier 6! T-Mobile has unveiled "Music Freedom" as part of its latest move to attack its competitors, Uncarrier 6. T-Mobile will offer unlimited free music streaming from all the major music services -- such as Pandora, Rhapsody, Milk, Spotify, iTunes Radio, iHeartRadio, Slacker, and Beatport -- even beyond your data cap. The carrier is touting its "Data Strong" network as being able to handle all of the load of all of this streaming. Of course, there are many implications of net neutrality along with this free streaming, but ...

    T-Mobile has generally been at the forefront of the wireless industry's game-changing moves by launching its Uncarrier initiative -- reducing wireless industry pain points and straying from the norm in order to provide a better consumer experience.

T-Mobile will allow you to now test its network for seven days, on the #7nightstand. Yes, that's right -- it'll let you see its network in action for free. The ...

    Last month T-Mobile shared news of its upcoming Uncarrier 5.0 event, scheduled for this coming Wednesday. In the past, these events have revealed changes that have taken steps to make cellular service simpler, more fair, and just more pleasant to deal with. Those have included things like offering to pay for the ETF of users breaking contracts in order to come over to the carrier, or adding international roaming to its plans – and between these changes and the improvement T-Mobile's been making to its network, we've noticed just how attractive the carrier's becoming. But what will the ...

    T-Mobile has recently made bold moves in the wireless industry with its "Uncarrier" changes to the norm -- it has picked apart consumer pain points and tried to address them, in hopes of gaining customers. Their latest moves are set to be unveiled at an event in June, and though we haven't a clue as to what to expect from the event, we are looking forward to it. Previous invites to T-Mobile events have hinted at what would be unveiled, but "We don't play it safe and sound" doesn't quite hit us immediately. Of course, we can spin it in many directions; sound could refer to call quality, or ...

    I've been a T-Mobile customer since the company was known as VoiceStream Wireless. Back then coverage of its PCS network wasn't that great. Big cities and highway corridors were fine, but as soon as I'd venture off the beaten path, my signal would drop to unacceptable levels. I tolerated that because I was covered 80-percent of the time, and the other 20-percent were when I really shouldn't be using my cell phone anyway (vacations, family functions, etc.). Today that's all changed. Coverage has improved significantly (though some areas have better saturation that others), data speeds are ...

    In an attempt to enter relevancy again, T-Mobile is undoubtedly using the underdog card to its advantage. But it's possible that some see that as an open invitation to have their way with the carrier. At CES, T-Mobile announced a new partnership with the MLB and announced its aggressive rollout of its new LTE network. In late March, T-Mobile held an event in New York City to unveil it's new UnCarrier marketing push, a move away from the ominous two-year agreement – or a subsidized contract – in its typical connotation. It was, effectively, a smack to the back of the head of the larger, ...
