This morning, T-Mobile began pushing the update for Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, satisfying the hundreds of you who have been complaining non-stop in our Twitter feed after every post we make about every other carrier’s S6 and S6 Edge getting Marshmallow. Granted, I can’t say I blame you for complaining, since T-Mobile is typically much quicker than the rest and this time struggled to get a major update out to the masses. So complainers, complainers that we love, today is your day. (more…)
According to T-Mobile’s Des Smith, owners of the LG V10 should see their Marshmallow update begin to rollout next week. To compare, Verizon sent out Marshmallow for the V10 back in March, and AT&T still has yet to release any intel regarding an update.
The V10 was released in October, and since then, owners have had to endure Lollipop. With the update to Android 6.0+, users will benefit from comprehensive app permissions, Google’s Now on Tap, Doze for improved battery life, more control over notifications, as well as plenty of bug fixes. (more…)
T-Mobile is looking to cook things up this Spring Break, announcing a new plan for couples or those who only need a pair of lines. Starting tomorrow, interested parties can get a 2-line plan for $80, featuring 12GB of data (6GB for each line, no sharing), unlimited talk, text, plus complete access to Music Freedom and Binge On.

Announced today, T-Mobile is the first US carrier to deploy Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) across its network, bringing a much improved voice experience to all of the network’s users (with supported devices). As an added bonus, for those on T-Mobile who tend to call friends and family who are not on T-Mobile, the patent-pending deployment of EVS benefits customers even if the person on the other end of the line does not have an EVS-capable device. This means that regardless of who you call, as long as you have a EVS compatible smartphone on T-Mobile, your calls should sound better than crystal clear. (more…)
T-Mobile announced new additions to its Music Freedom and Binge On services today, bringing the combined list to over 100 services. They also spent another press release telling us how much people watch and listen to videos and music now that they have Binge On and Music Freedom, because after the firestorm of insults that came out of their CEO’s mouth at the end of 2015 when Google and the EFF questioned each, they are still trying to justify to the world that you should not be questioning such success.

On your T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, feel free to jump through to Settings>About phone>Download updates manually, to check for an update, because you should have one waiting for you.

It’s LG G5 day! I know that doesn’t ring as loudly as it did on Galaxy S7 day, but the G5 is still a big phone, a big deal, and worth your consideration now that it is available for purchase and in stores. We’ve unboxed one, done a non-unboxing and tour, compared it to the S7, and given you our seven favorite features. We have actually talked a lot about it leading up until today.
So if you have seen enough and are ready to purchase the G5 before our review is up (which should arrive next week), you will find all of the links below to your US carrier of choice. (more…)
