T-Mobile Un-carrier 10 coming November 10

uncarrier10invite

After first teasing Un-carrier 10 more than one month ago, John Legere today revealed when the next big Un-carrier move will happen.

T-Mobile has revealed that Un-carrier 10 — or Un-carrier X — will happen on November 10. That’s 2 weeks from today. The event is happening in Los Angeles, and the tagline reads “We never hit pause.”

As for what customer pain point Un-carrier 10 will focus on, that’s still a mystery. The only teasers that we’ve gotten so far are the tagline that’s on the Un-carrier 10 invite and the hint that Legere dropped last month when he said that Un-carrier 10 “is coming soon to a theater near you.” Perhaps something movie-related?

    hopefully some great deals! Verizon is offering $300 trade in on ANY (even the cheap ones!) working smartphone. I wish they match that. I am looking to come back by the 15th. also fierce wireless twitter posted about t-mobile looking to add 20 million more pops 700 mhz block a via a spectrum purchase. any details on that? continuum 700 finally? they cover 14 million pops total. please be able one of the spectrum holder companies they buy out!!!

    • Steven

      This would be AWESOME!!!! An update on T-Mobile buying more 700mhz in market owned by other carriers(aka almost all of Alabama) would be awesome!! Please let this be true.

    • Joe

      Continuum and cavalier are now split up in a bunch of separate licenses still under continuum or cavalier but I think each one is sold separately. Which may mean they will buy licenses wherever is most populated or most needed. Hopefully that’s the plan.

      • kev2684

        I just did some searching. they agreed to buy AB License Co. I got this map from t-mobile reddit. http:// i.imgur. com/sLATa3a.gif

        the light green areas are continuum 700 markets. buy Jacksonville, FL already tmo!!

        • Joe

          Yeah that makes sense John did indirectly mention awhile ago that they would buy AB. I want then to buy cavalier and chanel 51 covering Charlotte needs to vacate the canal.

        • Fabian Cortez

          They need to buy Continuum as well and forge an LTE roaming agreement with U.S. Celluar just like Mobile Without Borders.

        • Epic_Ninja420

          yes please!

    • lynyrd65

      That’s a crap deal.

      The $300 is on a Verizon gift card which can only be used at Verizon stores and you can’t use it to pay your bill.

      • kev2684

        they said it can be used towards vzw bill and possibly EIP as well according to some users and when I asked their chat line

        • Tmo alum

          Verizon employee here. Can confirm that towards EIP is an option.

  • Epic_Ninja420

    Video Freedom? Unlikely but maybe youtube doesnt count against your data.

    • Steven

      Oh I’d MUCH rather Watch ESPN! What about both?

    • skywalkr2

      Wow I highly doubt this. They might as well give free unlimited data at that point.

      • YABD

        With tmobile coverage? Should be unlimited everything 5 dollars a month with free month.

        • Chad Dalton

          lol you’re funny…but pretty spot on…if you live in WV.

        • yankeesusa

          Here’s an idea, if tmobile doesn’t work for you then don’t choose them. It’s pretty simple. Go with the company that works for you. Instead of wasting time complaining lol.

        • YABD

          If my comments make you mad don’t join the forum. Thank you.

        • yankeesusa

          Nope not mad. Just making a point and stating an opinion. I just think it’s better to go with a cell provider that works for you. If you have t-mobile then I understand, but if not then to me it’s a waste of time to try to talk bad about a service you are not even using. But hey, that’s just my personal opinion.

    • yeah right

      Google and Tmobile have been cozying up recently. anything is possible.

    • SirStephenH

      Net neutrality…

  • Alex Pilaia

    Would love to see Android Promotional offers with JOD, not just iPhone.. Like LG V10 for $5/mo with trade in.. or Nexus 6P for $5/mo with trade in.. Please make it happen Tmo!

    • steven berson

      The iPhone deals wasn’t really a great deal. To get that low price a month you had to trade in a relatively new phone. I was looking into it for my old man and it wasn’t worth trading in a phone which i could probably sell on my own for 400-600.

      • Kevin

        I traded in a Galaxy S2 from sprint, valued at about $0

        • Adelino

          I traded in a Nokia 3650 from 2003, ATT phone. They changed the requirements though.

        • steven berson

          If you don’t mind me asking when were you able to get the promotion? I won’t be able to get it now would i?

        • steven berson

          Really and you got the $5 iPhone deal? I spoke to them and they wanted an iPhone 6, samsung edge, note 4 or anything high end to receive the promotion.

        • Kevin

          From others, it looks like they may have changed it. But yeah, I was on a Note 4 and switched to JOD when they had the 15-19 dollar a month iPhone 6 plan. You could trade in just about any smartphone, mine had no value.

      • dtam

        not if you got in early when it was the iphone 6. i traded in a pos alcatel one touch to get my credit

    • Ordeith

      Phone leases, like android, are bad ideas that are embraced by the ignorant.

    • Rdaex

      1) They have a samsung promo going on right now.
      2) How would they offer a 6P promo when they dont even sell it??

  • steven berson

    Maybe team up with Neflix or Hulu and offer a cheap $4.99 service add on and streaming from netflix/hulu wouldn’t count against your data. That would probably sell well to consumers I know I would sign up in a heart beat.

    • JLV90

      That would kill the network having everyone able to stream video. Speeds would suffer drastically.

      • steven berson

        Well most people that have netflix usually have high data packages anyway (i do lol). Or tmobile could give customers 5-10gb of high speed for netflix streaming that won’t count against there data plan. This would allow them to split money with netflix and some people may upgrade there data plan (more money). I think something along this line of thinking would do well.

        • jonzey231

          The fact that they would have any money exchange hands or let Netflix help foot the bill would be a hue net neutrality issue. The reason they get away with Music Freedom is because the music services don’t contribute ANY of their resources to make it happen.

        • SirStephenH

          It would be a huge net neutrality issue but they also get away with Music Freedom because they’re basically grandfathered in and they’re making an effort to add all music streaming services to the program. Net neutrality is mostly about preventing service providers from picking winners and losers in the market which T-Mobile isn’t doing with the Music Freedom program.

        • steven berson

          Makes sense I didn’t think about that. Maybe they could just sell netflix service at a reduced price of $5 as an add on. Sure many people would sign up and I’m sure a few will upgrade there data plan. Idk what more they could offer. Doubt they would include taxes like some have suggested.

        • Technosquid

          Money doesn’t have to change hands to make it a net neutrality issue. If all streaming services aren’t treated equally, then T-Mobile is advantaging these hand-picked services over others. Even if it’s based purely on the current popularity of the service, such a move would further entrench the incumbents. In the Q&A at the Music Freedom event, it didn’t take long for a reporter to ask about net neutrality concerns, and their response was to say their goal and vision of the program was to zero-rate all music streaming, and they were working to add services to the exemption list as soon as possible. If this isn’t the case for video streaming services, they’re going to need a new excuse.

        • jonzey231

          I agree completely. I remember when the guy from The Verge asked about it. They were just like “Chill the F out dude. We’re trying to be the good guys. Don’t worry, we’re going to try to get every service in this.” He just sat down like “Ohhh okay. “

      • steven berson
  • jj201367

    unlimited data or video streaming?

  • Michael Barnes

    Hopefully it’s more coverage or roaming agreements never hit pause between no coverage areas

    • yankeesusa

      It’s not going to be. It has been said several times and even tmobile said this themselves, that coverage is being expanded slowly in certain areas, as the current focus is getting LTE on all towers and adding or activating spectrum that goes further and penetrates buildings more, then they will add more towers.

      • SirStephenH

        “the current focus is getting LTE on all towers and adding or activating spectrum that goes further and penetrates buildings more”

        That adds coverage…

        • yankeesusa

          i guess that could be considered adding coverage, but to me adding coverage is adding towers where coverage was never there.

  • lynyrd65

    The way John talked about it at the end of the earnings call it could very well be Video Freedom.

    He talked about how he had to ask his team (probably Neville) if they could really make it happen (like it will be something unbelievable) and did not correct the interviewer when they straight up asked if it would be about mobile video.

    • Fabian Cortez

      That’d be quite interesting if this pans out.

    • millenialkid

      Well, the $67.1B love note exchanged between AT&T and DirecTV last year made news… It was approved, and customers are enjoying the ability to watch TV anywhere.

      • Mike

        If your subscribed to a TV package and there is still a data count

      • Acdc1a

        I’ve been able to do this with Dish for a couple of years now. AT&T uses TV anywhere against your data so it’s really the same. The reason I keep TV at all is for this reason. Got to get my heart broken by Michigan while at an outdoor event with no TV.

  • jonzey231

    It’s gotta be video freedom. “Never hit pause” between WiFi points. YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, ITunes and some others I’m sure.

    • Zach Mauch

      That would be awesome if it happened, but I honestly can’t see it. That would eat up data like CRAZY!!!! The only way I could see something like it working is if they either had some special setting (working with the companies) to limit bandwidth. Or possibly doing their own streaming to customers of a limited selection of titles that they optimized the stream for themselves.

  • Jason

    Unlimited Netflix with a new phone!

    • Mike

      For a year at most but stop expecting T-Mobile to go beyond and above because at the end of the day they are running a business for profit

  • Beginning of the End

    I think T-Mobile will introduce a Video Freedom option. Maybe unlimited streaming of Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, etc. Maybe limit video streaming to 1mbps to conserve network resources where appropriate.

    By introducing Video Freedom, they can phase out unlimited high-speed data, which is an end goal. By offering things like Music Freedom and Video Freedom, T-Mobile can limit the amount of data from each service to optimize the network based on demand.

    • dtam

      i don’t think there will ever be video freedom. that’s probably 90% of the reason why people add data to their plans

      • Joe

        I think what “Beginning of the End” is saying would be the replacement for unlimited data plans not all plans. It’s not a bad idea to give Unlimited video streaming caped at 1mbs (which is plenty to stream without any buffering) plus music freedom and another 5 gigs of data for anything else (non caped data). That would probably be enough for 90% of unlimited customers and not make them mad IMO.

        • dtam

          gotcha. unlimited would still be better though

          and I assume you do mean 1 MB/s aka 8 mbps

        • Joe

          Unlimited would still be better yes but it is unsustainable and t-mobile has said that it won’t last forever. And no I ment 1 mbps, it’s not actually that slow if you think about the low pings you get on lte.

        • dtam

          I don’t think people would go for 1 mbps…below is netflix recommendations for network speed. I think people want at least HD quality for now

          0.5 Megabits per second – Required broadband connection speed
          1.5 Megabits per second – Recommended broadband connection speed
          3.0 Megabits per second – Recommended for SD quality
          5.0 Megabits per second – Recommended for HD quality
          25 Megabits per second – Recommended for Ultra HD quality

        • Joe

          I’ve streamed YouTube at SD quality with only 1 mbps without much of a problem. But I guess to be a bit more reasonable they could cap it at 4 mbps and that should be fine for 720p.

    • Tory Belloise

      If they offered music freedom and video freedom there’s truly nothing left to eat a ton of data and people would no longer opt for the truly unlimited data plan

      • How about services not covered by those? Or have you considered other uses? I use about 10GB on tumblr and 5GB on twitter just because of picture loading. Maybe 2GB on Instagram. And that 7GB youtube is in high quality because I want to watch my videos in 1080p, not 360p, even if 360p was excluded. And my personal Subsonic server for music and video is not ever going to be covered by programs like Music Freedom (or any upcoming video alternative).

    • Mike

      Not happening.

    • Irfan

      u are kind of right , u may notice that VOLTE does not work on IPV4 , and its only work on IPV6 , where IPV6 have ability to maintain separate segment for video /voice/data transfer .

  • SirStephenH

    Probably more iPhone BS…

  • Ordeith

    They pause support and updates.
    and their network pauses all the time. There is a spot in town now where I have to toggle airplane mode to get a data connection that lasts for 5-10 minutes, then I have to toggle airplane mode again for another 5-10 minutes.
    I guess that’s an improvement over getting 4 bars of LTE in that area with no data, text, or calls getting through, but it is still a terrible experience.
    It’s been this way for months. I don’t know what their problem is. Even when we have coverage we really don’t have “coverage” sometimes.

  • Tory Belloise

    Truly all that’s left that T-Mobile doesn’t offer is better domestic roaming. If you look at Canadian networks they were all able to negotiate roaming to fill the service gaps, and their phones will simply display “ROGERS-EXT” This is similar to how Verizon and Sprint are able to roam on each other’s network pretty much anywhere and the phone will simply display “Extended”

    • gmo8492

      The problem is At&t. They constantly refuse to give T-Mobile a better roaming agreement and its been like that ever since the failed merger back in 2011.

    • steveb944

      The big players here don’t play nice with each other, just look at their ad campaigns. Plus I think service is more expensive North of the border, so you get what you pay for.

  • Kevin

    It appears they are disabling the Pause button on our music apps, after making music freedom such a big deal. Talk about bait and switch.

  • TedBell

    Why is it called a “revolution”? when it’s actually a wireless service..?

    What T-Mobil needs is something reliable. Maybe what T-Mobil needs to do is ink an agreement with Taco Bell. If they did this, they could enter into a cooperative marketing agreement; include a free spicy chalupa dinner or nachos every month your bill is
    paid on-time.

    T-Mobile Tacos. That’d be a reliable #uncarrier revolution feature worth putting up with patchy service.

    • vrm

      If your garbage man gave you something in return for garbage, THAT would be revolutionary wouldn’t it ?

      Go back and read about the uncarrier moves and they tell you what they are giving you back that other carriers DON’T.

      • TedBell

        Companies can charge whatever they want. That’s the beauty of the US, capitalism and a free marketplace.

        I happen to enjoy and prefer to spend a little more money on Papa John’s Pizza. I get it delivered, it’s consistent quality, and because my family’s time is valuable, I don’t have dishes. But if all you can afford is Totino’s frozen pizza, well… At least your not hungry anymore and had your hunger satisfied.

        • MadJoe

          Yes, but what he’s trying to tell you is that it isn’t who or what the service is that matters, it’s what the provider of said service is willing to do to make your use of their service more enjoyable and/or more economical. Like if Papa Johns said “Our pizzas are $10 each, and you can pick up to X number of toppings for no extra cost” Would you like that better than paying a la carte for each topping? I know I would. Except UnCarrier has been better than that, and is pushing the other carriers to treat their customers better to boot.

        • False analogy.

          Imagine if Papa John’s forced you to only buy pizza from them for two years.
          Imagine if they took away the leftover pizza after you were done eating.
          Imagine if they charged extra for certain toppings and only offered two toppings max.

          Now imagine that every single pizza chain is doing that. The whole pizza delivery industry is doing the exact same stuff.

          Now all of a sudden, Domino’s decides to listen to pizza buyers. They introduce flat rates for toppings. They allow unlimited toppings. They let you keep your leftovers. They simplify the price per pizza. And they even throw in a free 2-liter drink as a perk.

          Sure, you may like Papa John’s more than Domino’s. Maybe Papa John’s offers a specific obscure topping that you particularly enjoy. But for most pizza buyers, who only care about cheese, olives, mushrooms, pepperoni, and other classical pizza toppings, they’re more willing to give Domino’s a try because they won’t be so restricted. They’re getting a better deal.

          Eventually, Papa John’s is forced to make some changes. They’ll let you pay for more than 2 toppings, now up to 3. They claim 98% of their customers only order 2 toppings anyway. They’ll let you take some of your leftovers to work the next day. Pizza Hut is forced to do the same soon. Meanwhile, Domino’s is adding some of the more obscure toppings they didn’t serve before. Eventually, there will be no functional difference between Domino’s and Papa John’s. It all comes down to with which company you’re more comfortable doing business. This is the pizza revolution that forces all pizza companies to gravitate toward customer-oriented moves like letting you keep your leftovers and letting you choose your toppings.

        • slybacon

          Very nice! I enjoyed your analogy, and I completely agree :)

        • Rdaex

          ELI5 on Phone Arena??

    • Acdc1a

      Does T-Mobil sell cut rate gasoline?

      • TedBell

        There’s a 35-cent per transaction fee, and their systems only take payment with a debit card and pin.

      • MadJoe

        No, synthetic mobile oil.

  • Acdc1a

    On the call John made a big deal about it being in LA and they never hit pause. I can’t see it happening but this does point to video streaming of some sort.

    • Alex Pilaia

      “we dont hit pause” maybe they will be removing the data cap on all SIMPLE CHOICE plans? “Up to 1GB of high speed data, then throttled after that”.. not anymore!!

      • Jeffrey Wang

        They would go bankrupt if they did that, unfortunately. The reason why they raised unlimited to $30 was because they needed more profits.

        • Nawnp MCPE

          That would never happen, but yeah, too meet minimal profits means they can’t just add new cheaper plans constantly, buy I could see them introducing the Data stash to all plans, possibly Simply putting an 1 gb bonus on 1 gb plans with a 2+the 1 limit? Obviously that would only be a mention at the event.

  • DKBNYC

    Has something to do with movie streaming…

    • MadJoe

      Netflix will no longer count against your data cap?!? That would be F**KING EPIC!

      • Mike

        That would cause even more data congestion so it’s not happening. U can get an unlimited plan fool and it won’t count against your data count

        • MadJoe

          Who’s the fool? The one too lazy to learn how to spell ‘you’ or the one who thinks it would be awesome if something awesome actually happened? Reflect on your life choices.

        • MadJoe

          Evleaks agrees with me on this, is he a fool too?

      • Bighorner

        Considering the video streaming is the biggest data hog, I seriously doubt that they would do that.

        • MadJoe

          It sure would be ‘uncarrier’, though.

    • PHL

      How about a free or discounted YouTube Red subscription. You still have to pay for data, but you get the premium content at little to no cost like they did with Rhapsody Premium.

  • YABD

    Uncarrier 10: For 15 dollars a month, where Tmobile doesn’t have coverage will partner with ATT to roam.

    • Michael Barnes

      That would be awesome 15 dollars is high unless it’s unlimited and real speeds I would do 5 dollars and unlimited 3g

    • beyondthetech

      After repeatedly calling them “Dumb” or “Dumber” (I don’t know which) and insulting them whenever he gets a chance, would AT&T even want this roaming agreement?

  • tmolover31

    My guess as to what Uncarrier 10 will be is a free Netflix subscription, just like MLB At Bat.

    • Mike

      U must live on lulu planet. Why would T-Mobile offer free Netflix?

      • steveb944

        Because Verizon has the NFL to offer.

      • R.M.

        samsung offered netflix free for one year with the purchase of the galaxy s6 back in august.

        • Mike

          The free Netflix for a year still counts towards your mobile data unless ur on wifi or on the unlimited plan. So what’s your point ?

  • Irfan

    as Uncarrier radio , same Uncarrier video streaming but its a rick , video streaming take a lot of bandwidth , but let see plus might possible they will bring Video calling through direct dial or through Apps such as Skype or Viber etc , or may be T-Mobile tv FREE of cost

    • yankeesusa

      Video calling is already no cost. And they have radio already through music freedom.

    • Brian the populist.

      TmObile tv would be awesome! Good channels but i dont want to pay 12 a month for it hehe when netflix is cheaper

  • Mike

    T-Mobile will not offer unlimited Netflix streaming ppl. There’s already a concern about data congestion and free Netflix streaming will make T-Mobile speeds suck.

  • slybacon

    The invite does look like an old movie reel on the top and bottom of the ‘X’. Some kind of video streaming would be crazy!

  • cloud strife

    Basing this on Legere’s recent stunt, I’m hoping this is something data related & I hope it’s something I can really use.

  • Kel

    The X image sideways looks like Infiniti.. Unlimited streaming of some sort?

  • Android_God

    So, we’re all in agreement that it’s unlimited video streaming?

  • VG

    I’m guessing some sort of relaunch of T-Mobile TV with no additional monthly charge, but you still get charged for data usage. Something comparable to the NFL Mobile app that is exclusive to Verizon customers.

  • Ohannes Varaz Kalayjian

    Unlimited Netflix/Youtube Video Streaming?

  • Josh McDaniel

    I’m really hoping this has something to do with coverage expansion. I live in Wyoming and outside of Cheyenne the only two carriers that get service is att and Verizon. Perhaps they’re going to announce something to do with the competitive carriers association? A rep did tell me about a month back they were going to make a coverage based announcement. Fingers crossed

    • Rdaex

      How do we go through this every. single. uncarrier.

      It wont be about coverage.. there will be DISCUSSIONS on coverage.. but the uncarrier move will be a specific promotion or change to the business. Same as it always is.

      • Josh McDaniel

        I just figure since they joined the CCA that they have to have something under their sleeve about it.

  • Corey Jalette

    Maybe no soft data cap on unlimited plans.

    • williejackbrainer

      I would love that, but I don’t normally use more than 21gb in a monthly billing cycle.

    • Dada

      there is no “cap”

  • Ray

    Maybe the news is that they are partnering with Dish or Comcast?(God forbid!)

    • Thatguy

      Anyone but Comcast. Comcast will package the hell out of it.

  • Cam Fas

    Plan to match Verizon and atts coverage

  • randomnerd_number38

    T-Mobile Taco Tuesday?

    Nah, but seriously it’s gonna be Video Freedom. It just won’t mean the same thing as Music Freedom.

    Music Freedom = music data does NOT count towards your data usage. Approved Music services never throttled.

    Video Freedom = Video data DOES count towards your data usage. Approved Video Services ARE throttled, but only after you hit your data limit and only at a level high enough to allow low-quality streaming.

    I’m convinced I’ve figured this out lol

    • williejackbrainer

      If that is true unlimited customers will get throttled at the soft cap of 21gb?

      • randomnerd_number38

        I don’t think so. I mean, there’s no need to change that. They’re already deprioritized, why add on throttling too?

        • williejackbrainer

          I’m just thinking if it is unlimited video streaming. It uses a lot of data. However, the majority of the time I’m on WiFi when I’m streaming Netflix.

  • KChristainsen

    Navigation Freedom would be nice! Free Google maps and Waze!

    • seancaldwell

      Cool idea. From my experience Google Maps and Waze take up very little data. Drove 500 miles with both running and it was pretty low.

  • expat1observer

    I like T-mobile’s prices, I like their wifi calling, I like the way they offer a free signal booster. BUT I wish they had knowledgable sales people in the store, I wish their coverage did not vary on different days, I wish I could find out what are problems of my LG phone and what are the limitations of the coverage. I wish they provided service in New York as good as T-mobile roving in London and eastern Europe

    • RideScheduler.com

      >I wish they had knowledgeable sales people in the store
      I agree with this 100%. Last time I went in, the clerk did not even know who the CEO of TMobile was. I was commenting on John Legere on TMONews and got a blank stare. Never heard of TMONews or John. He then commented that he didn’t even have a TMobile phone. He didn’t know anything about the Mobile Without Boarders a week after it was announced. Another time when I mentioned bad coverage, another rep suggested I call TMobile support and have them switch me to a new cell tower. Except for the obvious manager they know almost zip about TMobile.

  • Uri

    20GB of Free Hotspot Love T-Mobile

  • Alex Pilaia

    Maybe they will copy Optimum with their old Promo.. FREE movie tickets per month for being a customer?? Legere did say “Coming to a theater near you”…

  • Nitesurfer1

    T-Mobile is
    going to announce support for unlimited high-speed video streaming for

  • Free Google Play movies every quarter, lol. <- Kidding, but who knows.

    I'm sure it's not unlimited video streaming because that would seriously congest the network. If they're already doing soft caps for super high data users, I'm sure that would make average data users into the range of super high data users, that are being capped, and will congest the network.

    I'm happy for whatever it is. I did want taxes included in the plans though, but my bill on the unlimited data plan is only $58 (with Score!), and I can't complain about that, even as a college student.

    I believe that Netflix, Hulu, Google Play or others like them have struck a deal with T-Mobile to share profit or earn a referral fee. Normal commission for Netflix affiliates is $12 per free trial. If T-Mobile is adding 1 million customers per quarter and half of them become new Netflix subscribers through T-Mobile, that’s 6 million in referral bonuses every quarter. Give options with similar referral payouts and its a win for T-Mobile’s bottom line. As for the network, I’d say that 6 million dollars PER QUARTER would quickly allow for the building of more towers. This is only a guess… I think T-Mobile is doing the right thing.

    What will allow T-Mobile to go all out and provide unlimited anything is graduating their network to 5G as soon as possible as well as adding short range cells throughout neighborhoods to better handle network traffic. At that point the bandwidth will allow for the offering of more data (30gb-50gb), if not unlimited.

    Add TuneInRadio to the list of music freedom and enable FM radio without having to use headphone.

    • CrypticPixel

      The headphones act as an antenna for FM Radio. FM Radio has nothing to do with the phone, or phone service, or anything with T-Mobile.

    The thing about Netflix is, it scales up in quality to the maximum that the connection speed will allow, including 4K for those with 4K enabled plans and phones with higher than 1080p screens. It may not be a big problem right now, with the small amount of 4K content and few ultra high resolution phones, but consider we’ve already had the first 4K smartphone announced, and we won’t be seeing 5G rollout until at least 2020. I just don’t want to see all of this brand new Band 12 network capacity eaten up by inperceptible quality differences on a 5 to 6 inch screen.

    t-mo posted on Facebook ” lag is for noobs! were unleashing gaming on the fastest 4glte network” so I’m now thinking uncarrier 10 will be for gaming and not netflix !!!!

    • Prode

      this is a good guess but what does pause have to do with gaming. I tell my wife to wait :) I still think it has to do with videos. The pop on t-mobile that watches videos (ie. netflix, hulu plus) from their phone has to be less then 5%. video freedom I feel would not be used by everyone and only by a low percentage. Making it look really good to ppl wanting to change carrier.

        pausing your game was a fake claim that sony made on playstation 3 were you could just whip out your playstation vita and resume playing the game over AT&T .that would be awesome , if i had a use for my cellular vita!!!!

        i was thinking the minimum quality mode on netflix is only 300 mb per hour. they could white list that. its only 256 mb per hour more then streaming music.

        • Prode

          I didn’t know that about the playstation. That would be kinda cool but the problem with that on T-Mobile is that very few ppl game on there phones. This makes it not look great to most new customers. watching videos on your phone for free looks way better to a customer. Only a few more days to see what it is like.

      I still think it is video/movie related. Besides the “no reason to hit pause” tagline, the event is taking place in Los Angeles, the movie capital.

  • Steven

    I just hope Watch ESPN is included in the video consideration. I can’t tell you how many times i’m out and about, tailgating, what ever, and I want to keep up with a game or see highlights. Please include WatchESPN if this is some sort of video freedom
