Everything you need to know about T-Mobile’s new JUMP! on Demand lease program

T-Mobile very recently announced its brand new version of JUMP!. Named JUMP! on Demand, instead of charging you extra on top of your EIP for the privilege of upgrading early, you’ll now lease a smartphone and upgrade whenever you like. Since it was announced we’ve been bombarded with questions, and I’ve been sent an internal communication (or five) that lays out virtually everything you … [read full article]

Uncarrier Amped beginning with a revamped JUMP! plan

Just a few seconds ago, John Legere tweeted out the first in today’s announcements. Or rather, teased at an announcement before then going on to explain. At time of beginning this post, he hadn’t yet said anything specific except that JUMP! is getting a revamp. This post is developing, I’ll keep adding information as I wade through it. UPDATE: T-Mobile has updated its newsroom page with the full press release, … [read full article]

“Blue screen of death” on your iPhone? You’re not alone

Yesterday afternoon, MacRumors reported on an issue supposedly plaguing a number of T-Mobile’s iPhone users. Many customers are complaining of seeing “blue screens of death” and random, frequent restarts. It’s a little unusual to say the least, and seemingly no one knows what has caused the issue. Devices affected include the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s. Katyovescoach on Reddit published the following: “Hey guys. So this morning … [read full article]

It has come to our attention over the past few days – thanks to a couple of our readers – that T-Mobile has changed the fine print to its unlimited 4G LTE Simple Choice plans. Head on over to the individual plans or family plans page on T-Mobile’s website and you’ll see the following short line added at the bottom of the page: “*Unlimited 4G LTE customers who … [read full article]

T-Mobile teases Un-carrier Amped, series of “epic updates” rolling out from June 25th

T-Mobile just released a big teaser to let us know that something new is coming very soon from our favorite carrier. Unlike its previous major Un-carrier moves, it’s not being given a number (not yet anyway). Instead, it’s being dubbed “Un-carrier Amped”. Which to me says one thing – Supercharged versions of what it already has on the market. Over the next few weeks, T-Mobile is going to “amp up” several of its … [read full article]

T-Mobile’s latest #DefeatDuopoly video is just plain awesome

As you will undoubtedly know by now, T-Mobile is going to be taking part in one of the biggest wireless spectrum auctions America has ever seen. The 600MHz incentive auction is due to kick off next year and as things stand, the two biggest carriers look likely to swoop up the majority of the spectrum. As they did in the AWS-3 spectrum auction last year. While AT&T and Verizon are lobbying hard to … [read full article]

Deal: Save on the Nexus 6 and Moto X until tomorrow

Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston among major T-Mobile markets having their AWS 3G/4G networks shut down this summer

Some of you may be aware already that T-Mobile – as part of its network modernization process – is shutting down its AWS HSPA+ network in a number of markets this year. As it builds out its LTE network, T-Mo wants to recycle its older network technology. This move has actually been planned for some time now, but there are some pretty big markets having their AWS 1700/2100 4G/3G (U2100) networks shut-down now, … [read full article]

Do T-Mobile and Dish need each other?

Earlier today I read an article over at Seeking Alpha, written by a research analyst and author named Brian Nichols. In it he argues that Dish and T-Mobile need each other. And after reading, I’m hard pushed to find a strong argument against it. It highlights something we’ve known for a long time. But, like anyone not wanting to admit to any kind of defeat, we convince ourselves that “it’ll … [read full article]

Cam’s Top 5 – Unlocked Budget T-Mobile friendly phones

T-Mobile sells some of the best – and most expensive phones – on the market. But perhaps what’s surprising is that there are a bunch of affordable phones on the market that can (almost) give those devices a run for their money. And they’re not available on T-Mobile’s store shelves. While that means that they don’t come with services like Wi-Fi Calling baked in, it does mean that they’re factory unlocked and free … [read full article]
