The T-Mobile OnePlus 6T's second update adds an Assistant power button shortcut and not much else

Carrier versions of phones tend to get updates slower than their unlocked counterparts, so it's no surprise that the T-Mobile OnePlus 6T is receiving updates later than the standard model. This time around, the update's sole highlight is a new power button shortcut for Google Assistant, with everything else merely being upgrades and optimizations.

OnePlus 6T sales are up 249% over the OnePlus 6

OnePlus doesn't say a lot about its phone sales. You might get the occasional empty platitude about sales exceeding expectations or what have you, but CEO Pete Lau reportedly offered a real sales metric to PCMag's Sascha Segan. He says sales of the 6T have jumped 249% compared to the OnePlus 6 launched earlier this year.

T-Mobile launches its own banking service, MONEY, so you can just give your carrier all of it

Not satisfied with receiving monthly sums for telecom services, T-Mobile wants to handle your money full-time. The wireless operator has quietly trial launched a banking service (if that sounds familiar, you have a sharp memory) that is currently rolling out on a limited basis. This time around, the service is called T-Mobile MONEY and it promises no account fees, no maintenance fees, no minimum balances, and a 1 percent annual percentage yield (in other words, the rate of return) on all balances, plus more for qualifying T-Mobile customers.

T-Mobile set-top box surfaces on FCC, 'Un-carrier' TV service can't be far behind

Late last year, T-Mobile announced its intentions to "uncarrier" television service, with its purchase of Layer3, an online TV provider. The first fruits of that acquisition have just reared their head at the FCC in the form of a new T-Mobile-branded set-top box.

T-Mobile might launch an expensive new international roaming plan on November 9th

International roaming used to be catastrophically expensive 100% of the time, but it's slightly less so now. T-Mobile helped pave the way for that when it started offering free 2G roaming in most countries. Leaked documents indicate that Tmo is planning a new add-on for its One plans that gives you unlimited international roaming, but it's spendy.

[Update: Expires today] T-Mobile offers $300 trade-in credit towards OnePlus 6T with 33 phones, including every OnePlus phone

As many had speculated, OnePlus is offering its brand-new 6T on T-Mobile. This is the Shenzhen-based company's first venture into US carrier partnerships, and to spice things up, T-Mobile is offering $300 towards the 6T with the trade-in of any one of 33 phones. That $300 figure doesn't make a whole lot of sense for the newer flagships on the list, but for the older ones, this could be a great opportunity to get a nice discount.

T-Mobile is offering a $50/month unlimited LTE prepaid plan for a limited time

T-Mobile is a bit strange in that it has two prepaid branches: T-Mobile prepaid and the newly-renamed Metro by T-Mobile. Alongside its name change, Metro introduced two new plans with unlimited LTE at $50 and $60. T-Mobile has just added a new prepaid $50/month unlimited LTE plan of its own, though it doesn't seem quite as appealing as Metro's.

[Update: Early unlock news] OnePlus shares details on 6T T-Mobile-version restrictions: bootloader, betas, and more

At launch, OnePlus was surprisingly quiet when it came to particulars about the T-Mobile version of its Oneplus 6T, but in a post published late last night to the company's forums, additional details about both the partnership between the two companies and the differences in the T-Mobile version of the phone were discussed at more length. If you were hoping to root or ROM your T-Mobile-bought OnePlus 6T, you can, in fact, unlock the bootloader, you'll just need to pay the phone off early.

[Update: S8 Active, too] T-Mobile rolls out support for RCS Universal Profile to Galaxy S8 and S8+

Although T-Mobile has offered its own in-network implementation of RCS messaging since 2015, it wasn't until this summer that the carrier joined Sprint in deploying an inter-carrier solution — GSMA's Universal Profile 1.0. At the time of roll out, though, the magenta carrier only updated subscribers with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Now, it's expanding by pushing the update to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ along with October bug fixes.
