In the race to sell LG's latest flagship Android phone to Americans, T-Mobile wins by a nose. As promised, the carrier is now selling its own version of the G4 to customers. You can buy it outright on T-Mo's contract-free setup for $599.76, or split your payments into 24 monthly chunks of $24.99. T-Mobile is also giving away a free 128GB MicroSD card with new purchases while supplies last - according to Amazon, that's about an $80 value. Read More
The time has almost arrived when you can drop some cash on LG's new flagship. T-Mobile and US Cellular have both announced pre-sale dates this week, but the phone won't be available until next week. Read More
T-Mobile is getting in on the Memorial Day sale action with a pretty sweet promotion for customers looking to pick up a new Samsung S6 or S6 Edge. During this weekend only, the Magenta Mavericks will double your storage for free, meaning you can get a 128GB phone for the price of a 64GB one, or the 64GB option for the price of a 32GB device. That's a savings of $80-100 and a pretty solid promotion.
There are a couple of other details worth noting. The sale price is good for all customers, both pre and post paid, though financing is obviously only available for the later group. Read More
We suspected it was going to be released this weekend and here it is, the Android 5.1.1 OTA is starting to roll out to some T-Mobile users. The update's approval was confirmed by the operator's product evangelist Des on Twitter and Google+ a few hours ago and it has appeared on T-Mobile's product support pages.
The OTA brings the Nexus 6 from build number LMY47M to LYZ28E, it should be around 125MB in size and have T-Mobile WiFi calling on board as well as all the bug fixes and improvements that come with Android 5.1.1.
As Des mentions, the OTA won't appear for everyone just yet, it's on a staged roll-out with a few customers getting it this weekend then ramping up over the next couple of weeks. Read More
The Nexus 6 is the first Nexus phone to have an official home on all four big US carriers. That means there are bound to be some carrier-specific updates, even for a Nexus phone. T-Mobile recently hinted that 5.1.1 was on the way with WiFi calling, and now we've got a leak from Sprint that says 5.1.1 (LMY47Z) will be out on May 26th.
We've seen the LG G4 announcement, we've reviewed it, and we know all five of the major carriers will sell the device. Now it's just a matter of finding out when.
Today Sprint has announced that it will start selling LG's latest flagship on June 5th, and you can pre-order one right away in leather black or plastic gray. If you buy one between now and June 21st, you get an extra battery, charging cradle, and 32GB microSD card in the mail for free.
The G4 will go for $600 outright, $200 with a two-year contract, $25 a month for twenty-four months with Sprint Easy Pay, or $18 a month with Sprint Lease. Read More
Android 5.1.1 is working its way through Google's lengthy list of Nexus devices. After coming to Wi-Fi tablets first, this week we saw it start to hit cellular devices like the Nexus 5, N4, and N9 LTE. As you may have noticed, Google's latest smartphone didn't make the list. With any luck, the Nexus 6 will get an over-the-air update sometime this weekend.
T-Mobile Product Evangelist Des recently sent out this tweet. Note the hashtag.
If that's not enough—scroll down.
This tweet follows one sent out over a week ago, when Des said the Nexus 6 update, along with support for Wi-Fi calling, looked like it would take 7 - 10 days to fix and test. Read More
