T-Mobile reportedly trying to salvage merger effort, gives counter-offer to Sprint

T-Mobile and Sprint were first reported to be in merger talks in late August, with the announcement originally planned for the end of October. Last month, a report from Bloomberg stated that the carriers' parent companies (Deutsche Telekom and SoftBank) were in the final stages of an agreement. But the end of October came and went with no announcement.

HTC announces upgraded U11+ flagship alongside Android One-toting U11 Life

HTC's U11 gained two siblings today, and neither of them has been a particularly well-kept secret. They're certainly not identical twins, either. The aptly named HTC U11+ is a substantially updated, upsized version of the headline U11 from earlier in the year, with an 18:9, 6-inch display, a huge battery, and the most modern design ever seen on an HTC phone. The U11 Life is a mid-ranger that will launch with Android One outside the US.

Four LG phones added to Amazon Prime Exclusive lineup: G6, G6+, Q6, and X Charge

Mobile phones are ridiculously expensive these days, and consumers are often backed into a corner by carriers and retailers. There is a way of bringing the cost down, however, so long as you don't mind a few lock screen adverts and offers. That's the essence of Amazon Prime Exclusive Phones, which can be bought for considerably less than retail price, with the caveat being that Amazon kind of owns your lock screen, and can use it to try to sell you things.

T-Mobile will limit LTE roaming in Canada and Mexico to 5GB starting November 12

One of T-Mobile's big "uncarrier" moves was to offer international roaming data to most customers for free. However, Canada and Mexico were special cases where you'd get full-speed LTE data on most plans. There wasn't any special limit on that data, which was remarkably generous—too generous, it would seem. T-Mobile is rolling that feature back and limiting LTE to 5GB per month in those countries.

T-Mobile bug gave hackers access to customer data using only a phone number

A security researcher has revealed that a recently patched hole in T-Mobile's security made it possible for hackers to vacuum up all your personal account information, and all they needed was your phone number. And you probably give that out all the time. T-Mobile says the vulnerability has been corrected, but there's some question as to how severe the data breach might have been.

[Deal Alert] ZTE Quartz has dropped to $96 ($96 off) at T-Mobile

ZTE announced its 'Quartz' smartwatch back in April, and it was the company's first Android Wear watch. It had 3G and was priced pretty competitively, but was exclusive to T-Mobile. That exclusivity hasn't changed, but the price has - it's now half off.

[Update: Stay away] Deal alert: Unlocked T-Mobile LG G5 (H830T) is just $199.99 on eBay

When it was announced, the LG G5 got a lot of hate for its - let's face it - ugly design and poor build quality. But those things, which are easily alleviated by a case, overshadowed a lot of the G5's good qualities. While its exterior downfalls made its $600-700 MSRP a little ambitious, the story changes when the phone is just a fraction of that price. And with this T-Mobile/unlocked model's $199.99 sale price, the G5 is definitely worth a look.

[Late to the Party] Verizon and T-Mobile update Samsung Galaxy Tab E to Android Nougat 7.0

Manufacturers are gearing up to bring Android 8.0 Oreo to devices, but we frequently forget that there are plenty of them still being sold right now that haven't had a taste of Android 7.0 Nougat. Up until just recently, Verizon and T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Tab E were among the devices stuck on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. But now those of you with carrier-branded units can enjoy all the features Nougat brings. This applies to Verizon 9.6" or 8" models, as well as the T-Mobile 8" model.
