What We Missed Last Weekend: AT&T Buried Changes To Their Upgrade Period

Nothing says major press event like a buried change “company y” hopes will go unnoticed. This is exactly what AT&T tried (and mostly failed) this past weekend with the internal announcement of some changes to their upgrade period. In the buzz leading up to Apple’s big press event, perhaps AT&T hoped these changes would go unnoticed by the world at large…instead chalk up one more reason not to be a AT&T customer and … [read full article]

T-Mobile’s Newest Commercial “Pipes” Takes Another Swipe At AT&T

T-Mobile just isn’t letting up on AT&T, data congestion and the iPhone 5. First we had Mousetraps, then Frankenstein, a man frozen in ice and now…pipes! Pipes with colored liquid representing data congestion! Hey T-Mobile, why not take some cheap shots at Sprint…a company whose data speeds really suck. Have you seen their LTE speeds? I can build a website faster than Sprint customers can view one on of their fancy LTE smartphones. … [read full article]

If you were hoping to get your hands on the HTC One with 64GB of internal memory, we’re learning that T-Mobile nor Sprint will be the place to do that.

AT&T Responds To T-Mobile’s New Rate Plans With “Whatever”

T-Mobile’s CEO hit hard against the current state of wireless subsidized sales stating “this is the biggest crock of shit I’ve ever heard in my entire life.” AT&T shrugged off the attacks on their network and business plan with a simple “whatever.” Sprint offered up a slightly more embellished statement on today’s T-Mobile news: “Sprint gives its customers the best of both worlds with … [read full article]

T-Mobile Responding To AT&T’s Newspaper Ad With Their Own Creative Responses

Let me be the first to say, that if these ads developed for T-Mobile in response to AT&T’s one-page attack ad last week don’t run in newspapers everyday for the next year, I’m going to be disappointed. Do these ads point to a new, cocky T-Mobile? Absolutely, but that’s what makes me love these three spots. I’ve long hoped that T-Mobile would do more to adopt a scrappy marketing campaign and start … [read full article]

T-Mobile Revamps Helicopter Commercial To Take Shot At AT&T Voice Quality

T-Mobile’s revamped a commercial originally debuting this past December with an opportunity to take a shot at AT&T’s voice quality at the end. The commercial itself is unchanged as we watch Carly fly around the country with lots of pink lighting going up in the background. It’s the tail end of the commercial that caught our attention as the new tagline hits at AT&T. What do you think? Is AT&T voice quality second place to T-Mobile? … [read full article]
