T-Mobile, only hours after AT&T added throttled unlimited data to their Mobile Share plans, dropped Uncarrier 12 on us with a real unlimited focus that “goes all in on unlimited.” That focus comes via T-Mobile ONE, the new “100%” unlimited data plan that starts out at $70 for a single line, but can drop to as little as $40 per line for a family of four with auto pay enabled.

According to emails we have received over the weekend, as well as our own pre-order, Galaxy Note 7 units are beginning to ship out from Verizon and T-Mobile. Unlike what we saw earlier this year from T-Mobile, where those who pre-ordered the Galaxy S7 were receiving their device a solid week ahead of launch, carriers appear to be doing better (or worse, depending on who you are) about shipping phones out closer to the actual release date.
For the Galaxy Note 7, that date is still August 19 across the globe. (more…)
Oh boy, the HTC Nexus phones just stopped off at the FCC this morning. As we all know, that’s huge news in terms of how this story begins to unfold in front of us. After seeing supposed pictures of one of the phones hours ago, we now know model numbers, get confirmation that HTC is indeed making two Nexus phones, and other details, like universal LTE support across US carriers, including Verizon.
Let’s dive into the filings that went live this morning and share what we are finding. Also, as we find more, we’ll be updating this post. (more…)
The HTC 10, a phone that is by all means one of the best Android phones of the year and HTC’s best by a mile in about four, has been axed from T-Mobile’s line-up after just two months. At least, that’s what we are left to believe after the phone disappeared from T-Mobile’s site back in July and never returned. (more…)
It’s been a year since the last time we asked which carrier you are using for your mobile phone needs, so it’s time to update our numbers.
Last year, the majority of voters were rocking Verizon, with Big Red capturing nearly 60% of the vote. Following Verizon was T-Mobile at 20%, then AT&T with 9%. Sprint, which got less votes than the total of “Prepaid or Other,” had 3% of the vote.
This time, to get a sense of which prepaid options people are using, we have included the names of the top US prepaid carriers, so let us know exactly who you are using.
Extra credit if you feel like telling us how you think your carrier is performing.
T-Mobile’s Binge On, the added feature for customers that allows them to stream video from select services and have it not count against their monthly data allotment, is getting quadrupled in size. In total, there are now more than 100 services for users to stream DVD-quality (480p) video from.
As for which services have been added, let’s name a few. Starting today, you will find ABC, Apple Music, Disney Channel, FOX NOW, Nat Geo TV, FXNOW, as well as the Big Ten Network.
Check out the full list of new services below. (more…)
