Back in December, YouTube decided that it wasn’t happy with T-Mobile’s Binge On video service and raised some important questions, partly because T-Mobile was being ultra sneaky about how it worked, but also because T-Mobile was throttling their streams even though they weren’t participating. T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere threw a couple of big, embarrassing fits about YouTube’s concerns, because apparently, no one is allowed to question pink Batman. Legere just couldn’t see how anyone could be offended by what his company was doing with Binge On, assuming that those with concerns all had some sort of agenda.
As it turns out, YouTube (and the rest of us who had issues with Binge On) really just wanted the program to be more transparent and not do sneaky things, like throttle the companies who were not choosing to participate or make it difficult for people to opt-out. Funny how that’s a bad thing, especially to the CEO of a company who has spent the past few years calling out his competitors for not being open and upfront about policies or sales programs.
Today, after some obvious back-room negotiations took place between T-Mobile and YouTube, the two companies have co-announced that YouTube (and Google Play Movies & TV) will join Binge On, thanks to some new changes. (more…)
Last year, T-Mobile offered a free MLB At Bat subscription for mobile customers. That subscription carried a $20 value, which was a nice little extra goodie, but for 2016, T-Mobile should be your only choice in wireless carriers if baseball is your sport of choice. For this year’s baseball season, T-Mobile will offer a complete season of MLB.TV Premium, a $110 value, for absolutely free. (more…)
Still haven’t decided whether or not to pull the trigger on a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge? Today is the day that you can officially buy them in stores, so you can finally make a decision after your own personal hands-on time. While a number of you pre-ordered because you knew from day 1 that one of these would be your next phone, we know that a number of you have been waiting to get your paws on them in person. Thankfully, everyone should have them today, including the big carriers like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, plus the big retailers as well (Best Buy, Target, etc.).
If you need quick links to them, we have those below. For specific pricing and all of the deals that each carrier or retailer is including, you’ll want to check out this post. We’re talking freebies that include the Gear VR, microSD cards, Netflix for a year, and more. (more…)
Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge opened up earlier in the week across the US at all major carriers on February 23. Both phones are expected to arrive by March 11, which Samsung has dubbed as the official launch day. But since we have seen pre-orders ship early in the past, we have been on the lookout for early shipping notices, especially from those through T-Mobile. You may recall last year’s pre-order period where T-Mobile shipped their orders almost two weeks early. Well, folks, it looks like that may be happening again. (more…)
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are now available for pre-order at just about every damn carrier you can think of. Each device is certainly available at all of the big players.
If you are considering either, we have links for you below, along with pricing and details for each carrier that includes information on the bonuses that all are offering. Should you pre-order, you’ll at the very least, land yourself a free Gear VR and 6-game bundle, but some of the carriers have thrown in extra goodies to sweeten the deal.

That didn’t take long. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge were announced moments ago, yet here we are with all sorts of details on availability and a release date from US carriers. Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, Cricket, and T-Mobile have all weighed in already.
Below, you’ll find the details on when you’ll be able to buy the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. (more…)
On LG G5 Day, it only makes sense that US carriers start weighing in with their plans for the device. For whatever reason, everyone is being quite tip-lipped about a potential launch date, so don’t expect this phone to launch within the next couple of weeks. We wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t show up until some time in April.
Still, we’ll update this post as we have info from each carrier. (more…)
Earlier in the week, we started getting notified by US wireless carriers that RootMetrics, an independent mobile analytics firm, was about to release its latest report that ranked Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile based on their 2015 end of year performance. On one hand, we had Verizon prepping us with news about their big win for the 5th consecutive report. On the other hand, we had T-Mobile in full conspiracy, damage control mode, releasing statements from CEO John Legere the minute the report went public. Boy, these are always fun times. (more…)
