T-Mobile's smartphone pricing scheme simply replaces a two-year service plan with a two-year hardware plan, but you may not care.
T-Mobile may soon move to having no contracts.
Today, long time T-Mobile users can rejoice, because their exile in the iPhone-less wilderness is finally coming to an end, and some potentially exciting no contract, no subsidy plans are getting thrown into the mix as well.
In the wake of Sandy, the affected area is seeing a different kind of corporate welfare. Companies that we jokingly refer to as uncaring monoliths are helping folks out in ways that go beyond good PR. It's a welcome sight...
T-Mobile customers might have the prettiest spokeswoman of any U.S. carrier (Hi there Carly Foulkes!), but it's the last network to get real 4G LTE. With AT&T's failed buyout of T-Mobile behind it, the telecom is now focusing its efforts on building out a 4G LTE network. Too bad it won't come until 2013.
The gears are already in motion whether Apple likes it or not. T-Mobile confirmed that it will be the first to sell Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet — a tablet that's been banned from sale in a few European countries for ripping off the iPad's design.
T-Mobile hasn't been bought by AT&T yet! That process will take at least a year to work through the system, so we've still got plenty of stuff coming from the soon-to-be-swallowed-up carrier. Today: the G2x, T-Mobile's first phone to work on their 42Mbps 4G network.
In a totally unexpected announcement, everyone's least favorite wireless carrier, AT&T, proclaimed that it had struck a deal to buy out T-Mobile USA for $39 billion. If the deal is approved, AT&T could really become the Death Star conglomerate the media has constantly painted it as.
Snobby teenagers, rejoice! Your beloved Sidekick will soon be revived with 4G data speeds and Android. Good idea or bad?
Ooh, isn't T-Mobile clever? The company's new MyTouch 4G "piggyback" commercial mocks and borrows the stark white gestalt of Apple's now defunct Justin Long/John Hodgeman "I'm a Mac" commercials. It uses a pretty young thing representing the MyTouch 4G to sympathize with a guy carrying a bigger guy on his back — that's the iPhone saddled with AT&T's over-burdened 3G network. Poor iPhone. T-Mobile's answer, of course, is her, the MyTouch 4G, and its 4G network, which the company hawks as "America's largest 4G network." There's just one problem. T-Mobile's network isn't 4G.
