The Walmart Family Mobile plans (it’s like a prepaid plan that runs on T-Mobile’s network) are getting a boost in data starting tomorrow, April 18, without a price hike. The two tiers – $29.88 and $39.88 – are each receiving a bump of 500MB per month, bringing them to 1GB and 3GB, respectively. Each plan also still includes unlimited talk and text.
And yep, it is a “slow news day.” (more…)
T-Mobile, at least according to its support site, is ready to push Lollipop to the LG G2 starting today. The update will actually begin rolling out today an finish around May 22, so if you don’t see it right this minute, keep checking over the next couple of days.
The update introduces the phone to Android 5.0.2 and software version D80130b. The update weighs in at 617MB, so you’ll want to have plenty of battery or a charger nearby before updating. (more…)
A number of you have expressed interest in purchasing an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6, even though Samsung hasn’t officially announced one for the US. I can’t say I blame you for wanting the carrier-removed variant, as it doesn’t contain (as much) bloatware and can be taken to any of your favorite GSM carriers without first needing someone to unlock it. These also tend to be the versions that get the first wave of updates as they are pushed out by Samsung. Unlocked phones are awesome. (more…)
April 10 is here! Did you order your Apple Watch yet? Errr, that’s not what we care about. What is happening today….oh yeah! Star Wars is now available digitally! No…well, that’s awesome news, but that’s not what we care about either at this moment. Ahh yes, it’s Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and HTC One M9 day! Did you get/order yours?
Below, we have links for all and to each carrier, in case you can’t figure out how to use Google Search.
If you need more info, well, we have that too. Our Galaxy S6 Review is out. That’s probably a must read. Our One M9 review will be here next week. We also have who knows how many videos of each phone over at our YouTube channel. Go watch them. Here is a pricing breakdown of the Galaxy S6s. Fun stuff. (more…)
The Samsung Galaxy S6 hasn’t even officially launched yet (tomorrow is launch day) and T-Mobile has already seen sales of it nearly double that of the Galaxy S5, which was previously the most popular Galaxy phone ever at the carrier. We are talking the first 10 days of availability, but then again, we are also talking a pre-order period. I would imagine those numbers will only increase once the phone becomes widely available.

Not even 6 months after its release onto T-Mobile, the carrier has decided to pull the Sony-made Xperia Z3 from its smartphone lineup. Originally going up for sale on October 29, there is no explanation from T-Mobile as to why this move was made, but it is entirely possible they just weren’t selling enough. (more…)
According to T-Mobile’s product guru Des Smith, the G3 from LG is set to receive an OTA update to Lollipop on April 7. With this rollout, most carrier variant G3 owners will be running Lollipop, including those on AT&T and Sprint. (more…)
First of all, today is April Fools’ Day. Don’t believe anything that happens in the next 24 hours, especially anything that appears on the internet. Today is both entertaining as hell, and also the most annoying day on Earth every single year. Companies like Google started in on the jokes yesterday and haven’t stopped yet this morning. Some are good – others, not so much. But hey, it’s all in good fun (until we can’t take it anymore and want it to be April 2).
Second, we have a rolling post of some of the better April Fools’ pranks over here. We started it yesterday and will continue to add to it throughout as more good ones arrive.
Finally, if you can’t take a bit of sarcasm and fun and lightheartedness, and find yourself just criticizing April Fools’ Day like a crusty old blogger, just go back to bed and wake up tomorrow. (more…)
