The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus will arrive in the US on July 12 at a starting price of $199. The price and set of specs should be enough to get you interested in them on their own, but these two phones are also some of the few options out there that work across all of the major US carriers, including Verizon. At this point, not even the incoming flagship Moto Z line can say that, unless something changes last minute. (more…)
T-Mobile has started pushing an update today to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 as software version VU2DPE3 or VU1DPE3. Those numbers don’t actually matter much, though, because the real story here is the fact that the update is Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
T-Mobile doesn’t list many details about the update outside of the file size (1.5GB), but being a Note device, you should expect a similar experience to what the Note 5 got with Marshmallow. Details of that update can be found here. (more…)
T-Mobile customer with travel plans for Europe this summer? Thanks to the Uncarrier’s new “Summer Unleashed” promo, your trip will now include unlimited high-speed data at no extra cost.
This morning, T-Mobile announced that all Simple Choice customers get “unlimited high-speed data across all of Europe” (except in Andorra), with speeds up to 4G LTE levels. That means no massive roaming bills or never-ending hunts for WiFi hotspots. As T-Mobile puts it, if you are traveling throughout Europe, “your phone just works = exactly like it should.” (more…)
T-Mobile Tuesdays was billed as a way for the growing wireless (un)carrier to thank and reward all customers with free sh*t on a weekly basis. Dinner and a movie was the biggest selling point, but T-Mobile wanted to give out free Lyft rides, swag to MLB.com, and Frosties from Wendy’s too. Of course, we already saw the dinner and a movie idea fall through after just two weeks of Domino’s struggling to keep up and now, in our third week, the bumps aren’t softening. (more…)
T-Mobile Tuesdays is off to a pretty poor start after only two weeks. Last week, we saw the apps that support the deal movement struggle mightily while customers flocked to claim their freebies and now this week, T-Mobile CEO John Legere has announced that they are already ditching their Domino’s deal that was to land all customers a free 2-topping medium pizza every week. So much for that whole, “dinner and movie every week” idea. (more…)
T-Mobile announced the sixth expansion of the Binge On service this morning, bringing the total number of supported streaming services to nearly 90. With Binge On, any video you stream over T-Mobile’s data network from a supported provider (such as Netflix, HBO, and YouTube) will not count towards your monthly allotment, saving you from possible overage charges.
As for which services were added this week, viewers can now stream video from PBS, PBS Kids, Azubu, Dailymotion Games, Eyegroove, as well as YouTube Gaming. According to T-Mobile, customers have streamed more than 500 million hours of video, with none of it counting towards their data. (more…)
At long last, for those waiting, Marshmallow is rolling out to the BlackBerry Priv on T-Mobile. This announcement is coming somewhat late, as it was first mentioned back in April that this update would be rolling out as a beta relatively soon. It’s now mid-June, so the beta process apparently took quite a long time, but hey, updates are always better late than never. (more…)
Project Fi added a third network today in US Cellular. That means Project Fi users now have access to three different networks, further enabling the ability of Fi to get you on the best connection at all times.
For those not familiar with US Cellular, just know that it’s one of the larger mobile networks (they claim to be the 5th largest) in the US with coverage in 23 states. The company is headquartered out of Chicago, has 4.8 million customers, and runs a network on LTE and CDMA. (more…)
