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 OnePlus 6T gets its first update, includes security fixes and improved Nightscape

One of the downsides to buying Android phones from carriers is that all system updates have to be carrier-approved. Thankfully, it looks like T-Mobile's OnePlus 6T won't lag far behind the unlocked variant. The T-Mobile 6T just received its first system update, which includes security fixes, adjustments to Nightscape mode, and more.

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.

T-Mobile shareholders greenlight Sprint deal amid strong third quarter results

T-Mobile, the third largest wireless carrier in the US by subscriber count, posted impressive third quarter results Tuesday. The operator revealed 774,000 net new monthly-billed subscribers — far above Wall Street estimates of around 628,000 net additions. As for revenue, T-Mobile brought in $10.84 billion, beating estimates of $10.72 billion. Perhaps the best news of all for the wireless company's future, though, was its announcement that shareholders had greenlit its acquisition of Sprint, the fourth largest American carrier.

[Update: Get your pre-order on] The LG V40 is official: Where to buy it and when it's available

LG has just taken the wraps off the V40 ThinQ, its follow-up to the almost continual V30/V30S ThinQ/V35 ThinQ refreshes. The latest iteration in the V series brings real change in design, though, with a new notched and significantly improved OLED display, triple rear camera configuration, and a $900-1000 price tag to go with it.
