It is Cyber Monday, and the discounts keep on coming. Not to be outdone by the Google Play Store, T-Mobile is knocking $50 off the 32GB and 64GB Midnight Blue Nexus 6 models for a limited time. If you do the math, that works out to about $600 and $650, respectively.
Google’s running promotion will grant you a $50 rebate in the form of Play Store credits, but T-Mobile’s sticker price is the lowest we have seen. And remember that the Nexus 6 ships unlocked, meaning you are not tethered to T-Mobile if you choose to order from them – you can use the handset on another carrier, provided you have the SIM.

T-Mobile added 14 new music services to its Music Freedom program, this morning, including Google Play Music, which won a popular vote contest put on shortly after the music program was announced earlier this year. T-Mobile also added Xbox Music and SoundCloud, along with a bunch of smaller services you may have never heard of. (more…)

After delaying for a week, T-Mobile is now selling the Nexus 6, Google’s brand new whale of a smartphone.
The device comes in Midnight Blue, just like every other carrier, but you do have options of either 32GB or 64GB of storage, which is unique to T-Mobile. Sprint and AT&T are both only selling the 32GB model. At least one of our readers purchased the 64GB model from T-Mobile this morning, chose overnight shipping, and is expecting it to arrive tomorrow. (more…)
So you received your brand new Nexus 6 today, straight from a factory in China, and you walk into a Verizon or AT&T or Sprint store to have it activated for use. As you and a sales rep get the process going, you get to the point where they need to scan the nano SIM for the phone and then your phone’s IMEI. You can almost taste the Lollipop. You will soon know how many licks it takes. You are this close. The sweat needed to give you extra grip on the 6-inch whale in front of you is starting to build in the palm of your hand. Your fresh pair of JNCOs is crisp from the dryer. The fresh Free Willy tattoo under your tribal band still has a bandage protecting its scab. You are a Nexus 6 owner. No, even better – you are an unlocked Nexus 6 owner on the verge of becoming one with a marine mammal. “I tell you what to do, carrier,” you say under your breath as you reach for your newly activated phone.
And then the sales rep gives you that look. You have seen this look before, typically when the 7-11 clerk scans your lottery ticket. You sir, do not have a winner. “Sorry, the phone won’t activate because the IMEI is not in our system. There is nothing I can do,” the sales rep says. (more…)
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge appears to have successfully made its way to US carriers for purchase. Shocker, I know. Unlike its taco-shaped cousin, who enjoyed a brief stint in overseas markets before settling into its rightful life as a proof-of-concept, the Galaxy Note Edge apparently showed enough promise or received enough of a positive response to convince AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile that people might actually buy one. Actually, let me re-phrase that. The Galaxy Note Edge and its insanely high price tag, for reasons that have escaped our minds since the device was surprisingly unveiled on stage alongside the Galaxy Note 4, can be purchased by human beings at a couple of carriers who have lost their minds.
