T-Mobile's next 'Uncarrier' move gets rid of all non-ONE plans, pays back fees and taxes, offers credit for low data users

T-Mobile's allegedly revolutionary ONE Unlimited plan has been met with a lot of skepticism thanks to its oxymoronic limitations on streaming video and tethering, plus new tiers of service that undermine the idea of a "single" data plan for everyone. Even so, CEO John Legere said that the company is "doubling down" on the ONE plan. In his typical bombastic and profanity-laden style, Legere announced that starting January 22nd, T-Mobile will only offer the ONE Unlimited plan to new post-paid customers. That's $70 for talk, text, and "unlimited" data for the first line, $120 for two lines, and $20 for each line after.

T-Mobile ZTE ZMAX gets November security updates... but it still runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat

I'm honestly conflicted. When I spotted this new software on T-Mobile's support pages, I had to do a double take. How come a phone that's still stuck on Android 4.4.2 KitKat is getting the November 2016 security updates? It's ridiculous and awesome to a point that I just couldn't pass up the news.

The ZTE ZMAX was announced and released in September of 2014 on T-Mobile. It had midrange specs with a 5.7" 720 display, Snapdragon 400, 8MP back camera and 1MP on the front. The major selling point was the 3400mAh battery and the $252 price point. At the time of release, it ran Android 4.4 KitKat and it has managed to stick to that version for two years, no version bumps whatsoever for ZMAX owners.

T-Mobile is the first to kill remaining Galaxy Note7 devices on its network with new update

The Note7 doomsday has arrived. Samsung announced several weeks ago its intention to send out an OTA update that killed the Note7's ability to charge in the US. T-Mobile was the first carrier to schedule the update, and now it's rolling out. Any remaining Note7 devices on Tmo will soon be put out of their misery.

T-Mobile has become America's most consumer-unfriendly carrier (opinion)

Fun fact: As of yesterday, T-Mobile is now the only carrier in the US that no longer allows you to buy a plan on the internet with high-speed tethering. Did you know that? With the utterly confusing and pointless splitting of T-Mobile's ONE plan (already split into ONE and ONE Plus), the carrier has officially hidden high-speed tethering behind a phonewall. You have to call T-Mobile's sales number to buy the new ONE Plus International plan, the only T-Mobile plan advertised with high-speed tethering anymore (Note: T-Mobile has clarified that existing T-Mobile customers can get ONE Plus International through the T-Mobile app, but was unable to provide any explanation why new customers needed to call).

[Tmo MANY] T-Mobile's ONE plan to rule them all confuses everyone with modified and new ONE Plus add-ons

This isn't confusing at all. T-Mobile, these new ONE plans, they are the epitome of simplicity, aren't they? I mean, all you have to do is choose if you want one line for $70/month, two lines for $60 each, three lines for $47 each, or 4 lines for $40 each, and you get unlimited talk, text, and 4G data. Oh and you enable AutoPay to get the prices here because otherwise they're $5/month higher. Then you choose if you want to add a tablet for $20/month and/or a wearable for $5/month. Then you can pay $3/day for HD video streaming passes if you want a higher resolution than 480p.

T-Mobile's next 'Un-carrier' announcement will come on January 5th at CES

In John Legere's continuing effort to will himself into the role of mobile rock'n'roll Jesus, the T-Mobile CEO has released a teaser trailer for the carrier's next Un-Carrier event. Exactly what will happen at the event isn't being disclosed - in fact, the whole point of the video is "wouldn't you like to know?" We did find out that the announcement will come on January 5th in Las Vegas, not-so-coincidentally at the same time and place that next year's CES will be going down.

OnePlus 3T gets its second update in the form of OxygenOS 3.5.4, brings better T-Mobile support and other fixes

The OnePlus 3T hasn't been out for long, but OnePlus is already pushing another update to it. The Shenzhen-based company doesn't exactly have a great reputation for updating its devices, so this is nice to see. This update to OxygenOS 3.5.4 (still Android Marshmallow) brings a host of optimizations and fixes.

Some T-Mobile stores will soon have Google Pixel display units, but won't be selling them

According to sources familiar with T-Mobile's plans, the company will announce either today or tomorrow that the Google Pixel will be displayed in some T-Mobile retail locations. The device will not be sold at T-Mobile retail locations (or T-Mobile's website). Instead, store employees will direct customers to the Google Store (and help them with the process) or Best Buy to complete their transaction. The "carrot" for T-Mobile here is obviously that it hopes to gain subscribers, and sales reps will be pushing the provider's current Pixel promotion as part of the pitch to customers.
