Announced this morning, when an AT&T customer opens two lines on T-Mobile and ports their number to T-Mobile ONE, the Uncarrier will provide a $35 monthly bill credit for 12 months. The $35 can be used for a subscription to AT&T’s DIRECTV NOW service (which starts at $35 a month), or anything else since T-Mobile is not obligating you to give AT&T any money. (more…)
This morning, T-Mobile took the wraps off its latest technology introduction, DIGITS. The idea here is very much Google Voice meets AT&T’s NumberSync in that you get to use a single phone number (your “DIGITS”) across multiple devices and have additional phone numbers funnel through it.
T-Mobile’s take on this type of technology allows you to access your “DIGITS” number (calls, contacts, texts, and voicemails) on phones, tablets, wearables and computers. You can even have it setup to funnel through an old flip phone. T-Mobile says that they are taking this 1-number to rule them all idea further by letting customers attach multiple T-Mobile numbers on the same device. That means accessing numbers from work, home, and a personal line on a single smartphone. (more…)

As it turns out, Coral Blue may indeed be coming in time for the holidays. (more…)
AT&T GoPhone, a prepaid plan that is without a doubt (and has been) one of the best values in the business, will receive a bump in data on Friday to two of its plans. That data bump, as has been the case for years, did not increase the price, leaving your GoPhone plan with more data just because. (more…)
