T-Mobile continued its holiday giving ways this morning by announcing to Sprint customers that they will receive an extra $200 per line should they make the switch to magenta. The deal kicks off tomorrow, November 26, and doesn’t seem to be limited in the number of lines you can bring over nor do there seem to be any hidden tricks. If you switch from Sprint to T-Mobile, they will credit your account with $200 per line. (more…)
This afternoon, T-Mobile kicked off a new promotion called Un-carrier Unwrapped, which is their way of getting the Uncarrier movement into the holiday spirit. With Un-carrier unwrapped, T-Mobile is handing out holiday “gifts” for four straight weeks, the first of which is three “full months” of unlimited LTE. (more…)
After hyping an upcoming “major” announcement for this morning, Sprint went ahead and announced the “Biggest Wireless Offer in U.S. History.” The plan is a 50% slashing of all of the major US carriers’ plans, but also includes up to $650 per line to pay off early termination fees, should you leave your current carrier of choice and join Sprint. It certainly adds up to low prices, plus it comes on the heels of Sprint announcing its new LTE Plus network.
While we have already seen our readers react, there is another reaction that was guaranteed to be entertaining. We are talking about John Legere’s, of course, T-Mobile’s CEO who always likes giving it to Sprint and the rest of his competitors. However, his Sprint battles almost always seem to be the best of the bunch, since Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure is willing to fire back. (more…)
Yesterday, we told you that Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure had a big announcement to make. This morning, he made it in the form of a 50% off deal if you bring your number to Sprint from AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile. Sprint is calling it the “Biggest Wireless Offer in U.S. History.”
I would call the deal simple, but I took a look at the mile-long terms and am not so sure anything about this could be simple, especially when you start talking about cutting prices in half from three different carriers who all offer wildly different plans at varying prices and with different amounts of data. So here is the deal, in the simplest terms I can explain it. (more…)
MetroPCS, the prepaid wireless service owned by T-Mobile, is set to incorporate one of its parent company’s popular service features into its own plans. Announced today, Music Unlimited, which is basically T-Mobile’s Music Freedom, allows customers to stream music from preselected services with none of the data counting against your monthly allotment. This feature will be available on all plans priced at $40/month and higher. (more…)
You have probably heard T-Mobile customers ask about band 12 (700MHz spectrum) LTE support for this or that phone over the past year. They talk about it a lot because it’s a huge deal in terms of connectivity on their phones, or at least will be once their phones get support for it and T-Mobile builds out band 12 in their frequently visited areas. You see, band 12 (or Extended Range LTE), at least according to T-Mobile, “reaches twice as far and is four times better in buildings,” two areas that T-Mobile has clearly needed help in over the years.
The problem with band 12 right now is that there are a couple of situations at play that need to be fulfilled in order for it to be used. First, T-Mobile has to build out band 12 support to an area. Second, you need a phone that can take advantage of it. As T-Mobile has continued to cover its subscriber base with band 12, its phone line-up is slowly coming on board as well. It hasn’t been a simple or straight-forward process, though, as phones like the Nexus 6P are still waiting for it. (more…)
Starting November 27, T-Mobile will be the first US carrier that you can walk into and purchase a Gear VR from Samsung. Priced at $99, you will find units at participating stores, as well as online through T-Mobile’s official website.
As you likely already know, you will need a supported Galaxy device from Samsung, which includes the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy S6 Edge+. (more…)
Yesterday, during T-Mobile’s UnCarrier X event, the company announced the amping up of Simple Choice plans. Pretty much all plans would see a doubling of the data amount they received and these changes would be absolutely free. However, now that the buzz from all of the Binge On hype is wearing off, it appears that new T-Mobile customers will end up footing a slightly larger monthly bill than existing ones. (more…)
