T-Mobile and Comcast show off latest tech to fight robocalls across carrier networks

Over the last few years, robocalls have quickly grown into one of the most universally despised issues among mobile phone users in the US.

When you hear the word T-Mobile, several things probably come to mind: a retina-melting shade of fluorescent pink, industry-bucking "uncarrier" campaigns spanning the greater half of this decade, and the incessant, enthusiastic tweets of Chief Executive extraordinaire, John Legere. Well, you can soon scratch that last one off your list. Per an announcement made by Legere himself, the spirited face of T-Mobile plans to step down from his CEO position in just six short months.

Legere reportedly staying put

According to CNBC, the allure of turning WeWork around wasn't enough to sway John Legere from his magenta throne.

Sources who asked not to be named claimed that Legere "has no plans to leave the company." Furthermore, he was never the first choice for the job, they say. Given the intertwined nature of SoftBank between Sprint and WeWork and the upcoming T-Mobile/Sprint merger, it's possible that a move between the two companies could be seen as a potential conflict of interest — not that it matters now.

The partnership must have been fruitful for both sides, as they have teamed up again for the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren edition which became available earlier this month.

Google Fi rolling out DSDS support for faster network switching beginning with Pixel 4

The Pixel 4 officially supports dual-SIM dual-standby for those who prefer to stay connected with the help of two networks — it's a feature that feels wasted in the U.S. given how much it costs to make that commitment in this country.
