As you probably already know, the Galaxy Note7 hasn't exactly had a great launch, thanks to its tendency to explode. As a result, Samsung was forced to quickly redesign and produce millions of Note7s to send to owners with affected models. The Korean company prioritized replacements for owners with defective Note7s, and new sales were reported to restart on October 21st. However, things are moving more quickly than that; T-Mobile will resume sales on October 5th. Read More
Owners of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on T-Mobile aren't getting Nougat yet, but at least they aren't being left completely out of the update fun. An OTA is rolling out to both phones that includes newer security patches, Samsung's own online backup system, and a myriad of little tweaks. Read More
Eight years - that's how long Android has been available to the public for. September 23rd, 2008 marked two huge events in Android's history: T-Mobile's release of the G1, the first Android device available to the masses, and Google's release of the Android 1.0 SDK. Happy birthday, Android! Read More
Subtlety isn't the strong suit of T-Mobile's CEO and his press announcements, but this new release comes to us courtesy of the company's CTO, Neville Ray, who seems to be taking on the same blunt approach of the famous Legere.
T-Mobile, through Ray, announced new network technologies to improve the speeds of its network: 4x4MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) which doubles the number of data paths between your phone and the cell network, and 256QAM/64QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) for faster bits transfers during downloads and uploads, respectively. 4x4MIMO is already available in 319 cities while 256QAM/64QAM is live in half T-Mo's network and will be on every network cell by the end of October.

recall voluntary replacement of all units, the big 4 carriers in the United States have issued statements to explain what their plans are for customers who have already purchased the phone. All of them have halted sales of the device, but some already have detailed plans for the future while others are still putting a concrete strategy in place and have just made a quick announcement.
T-Mobile Tuesdays program has had its fair share of hiccups, but all things considered, getting stuff for free every week is better than getting nothing. Next Tuesday (September 6th) will bring a partnership with Subway that will allow every T-Mobile Tuesdays participant to pick up a free 6-inch oven-roasted chicken sub from Subway. The usual partnerships with Wendy's (free small Frosty), Lyft ($15 ride credit), and VUDU (free movie rental) will continue for Tuesday the 6th. Read More
T-Mobile has caught a lot of flak since it announced the new T-Mobile One plan, which it promotes as unlimited. There are a surprising number of limits, though. To counter the criticism, T-Mobile has announced a few changes to One, but some of those changes are simply opportunities to give T-Mobile more money for features you already have. Read More
Earlier today, a magnitude-6.2 earthquake struck central Italy killing at least 120 people and injuring many more. Entire cities have been devastated, and suffice it to say, it's difficult to read the first-hand accounts of the disaster. As has become customary with major disasters, carriers around the world are waiving international calling and text fees to Italy. Read More
Starting on September 6th, new T-Mobile postpaid subscribers or current postpaid customers looking to change their plan will have exactly one choice: the ONE plan. T-Mobile is dramatically simplifying its [admittedly, confusing at times] plan structure for individuals and families by introducing literally one plan. Again: the ONE plan.

As an individual, you'd pay $70 per month for the ONE plan. Unlimited talk, text, and data. Sounds nice! And simple. But the strings attached aren't so much strings as structural-grade steel cables. Read More
