We reported a few days ago that T-Mobile, in conjunction with MLB, would be offering a free membership to MLB.TV Premium, their complete live game streaming service, to all T-Mobile subscribers. The promotion (as well as the Major League Baseball season) is now live. Here's what you need to do to sign up.
Start by heading over to this page on your T-Mobile connected phone or tablet. Make sure you are connected to T-Mobile's signal, not WiFi, or else you will get an error message. Once you open the page you will have the option to create a new MLB account, or sign into an existing one. Read More

The high-end of the market attracts all the fame and glory, but millions of people are carrying around prepaid low-end phones in their pockets. And these days, the low-end of the market isn't what it used to be. Android enthusiasts will know that phone you pulled out isn't top-of-the-line, but the average person will think that 5-inch 720p display looks pretty snazzy.
AT&T is introducing two new Galaxy phones for its GoPhone line. Read More
This is no April Fools joke: Verizon has updated the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge software pages with details of the Marshmallow OTAs for the two devices. They currently run Lollipop, so the update will be very welcome to S6 owners on Verizon; Samsung started to roll out Marshmallow for the S6 and S6 Edge in February, so Verizon isn't that far behind. It does come almost a month after Sprint initiated the update for their S6 and S6 Edge, though.
The update brings all the features you'd expect of a Galaxy device with Marshmallow. Now on Tap is there, as are on-demand permissions, which were both introduced as part of the overall 6.0 update from Google. Read More
For an idea of how much money carriers make providing you with service, look at what they're willing to give away to gain a new customer. Consider AT&T.

If you route all of your voice calls through data-only web tools like Hangouts, you may want to keep an eye on T-Mobile. According to an internal leak posted by Tmo News, the "uncarrier" will offer a surprisingly wide array of data-only options starting later this week. While these plans are still under the "Simple Choice" label, they're considerably cheaper than the existing options thanks to omitting voice services. The plans do include the now-standard unlimited texting, whether you need it or not. Read More
AT&T customers looking for another hotspot option will have one come April 1st. And no, that's no April Fools' joke. It would be a very bad one if it were.
AT&T is releasing the Unite Explore, a rugged portable hotspot that you can take on your next hike or camping trip. The device is advertised as dustproof and resistant to both water and shock. Read More
Smartphones do many things, but underpinning most of what makes these phones smart is an Internet connection. Struggling to connect to Wi-Fi makes a phone significantly less intelligent.
