T-Mobile unveiled several Wi-Fi initiatives as part of Un-Carrier 7.0 that it hopes will help fill in the gaps where its network is weak and even extend coverage to places its towers have no chance of reaching.

If you like LG's style but aren't ready to pay for a top-of-the-line smartphone, AT&T and Sprint would like a word.
