It's the first of May, and you all know what that means: free access to the MLB At Bat app for T-Mobile subscribers starts today! Tmo's multi-year contract with Major League Baseball gives its customers free access to the video and audio streaming app. Normally the app and the service are part of the expensive MLB.tv game streaming package, or a separate purchase of $3 a month or $20 a year.
Does the HTC One leave you cold, T-Mobile customer? Tired of all the plastic on Galaxies big and small? Then look at this filing in the Federal Communication Commission's ever-expanding database of certified wireless devices. It's the Xperia Z, Sony's current flagship model, with wireless bands for T-Mobile's standard HSPA+ network and its shiny new LTE spectrum as well. That makes the stylish smartphone as close to a done deal as we're likely to get until T-Mobile starts its press campaign.
T-Mobile may be a little late to the party, but there is plenty of love to go around. T-Mobile customers can now find the Galaxy S4 available from the carrier's website for the expected price of $149 with a two-year contract, in white or black. Overnight shipping is available for those who cannot wait any longer, and since T-Mobile is pushing this as a limited-time offer, you might not want to.
As Jelly Bean started hitting One Xs across the US, it's as if we could hear the cry of all One S units in unison. Why had they been forgotten? Lost and alone, One Ss across the country felt unloved and worthless. "Ice Cream Sandwich was last year's OS – I just want to be the best I can be" said one unit we had a chance to speak with.
But there's a light at the end of the tunnel for these once highly-regarded handsets.
Dearly beloved, we are gathered together in the sight of the FCC and these witnesses to join MetroPCS and T-Mobile in the bonds of holy mergrimony. If any shareholder can show just cause why they may not be joined together, let them speak now or forever shut the hell up.
Today, MetroPCS shareholders approved the merger between the company and T-Mobile USA. As a result of the deal, Deutsche Telekom will own a 74% stake in the new company, while the former MetroPCS shareholders will own 26%.
The HTC One page just went live at t-mobile.com, so if you've been lusting after what David called the most important phone of 2013 (read his review to understand the reasoning behind such a bold statement), you can finally secure the Glacial Silver version online. It doesn't look like the Stealth Black variant is up yet if you were looking for one of those, but on the upside T-Mobile is throwing in a free car dock with the purchase.
The Galaxy S4 is upon us. AT&T and US Cellular launched their respective pre-order pages just yesterday, and now Sprint and T-Mobile have announced official release date and pricing info.
The Now network will begin offering The Next Big Thing on April 27th for the expected price of $250 with a two-year agreement. However, if you're willing to ditch your current provider and port your number to Sprint, you'll get another hundred-spot off, bringing the price down to $150.
For those who've been running the latest CM10.1 builds on their Galaxy Note II, a little change is rolling out in the CyanogenMod world today. Up to this point, the t0lte build has been the go-to for all versions of the LTE Note II. As of today, however, that changes – CyanogenMod has separated the AT&T and T-Mobile versions into their own builds to better handle the slight "hardware and device variations."
Thus, if you've been regularly flashing t0lte nightlies, you'll need to switch it up a bit and grab the appropriate version for your device if you're on AT&T or T-Mo.
Update x2: The update is rolling out again as of April 8th. Hopefully it'll last this time.
Update: Turns out that T-Mo recently halted the update. At this point there's no word on why it was delayed, but the carrier updated the support page to reflect the change, noting that it is "paused until further notice." We'll let you know when it starts rolling out again.
If you picked up the T-Mobile-branded version of Samsung's newest 10-inch slate that doesn't have "note" in the name, you may want to head into the Settings menu and tap the update button, as T-Mo has quietly started pushing the Android 4.1.2 update to the device.
