T-Mobile Statement Highlights Network Refarming For iPhone Customers

AT&T’s recently announced policy for unlocking iPhones is good news, but there is no company more capable of reaping the rewards of AT&T’s new policy other than T-Mobile. With T-Mobile’s network refarming, existing inventory of Micro-SIMs and value priced offerings, T-Mobile is perfectly positioned to attract angry AT&T customers. In fact, T-Mobile released a statement to 9to5Mac earlier today on this very subject: Today we have more than one million unlocked iPhones … [read full article]

The FCC Hits Back At AT&T, Reminds Us They Would Have Cut Jobs No Matter What

After AT&T’s tactless attack on the FCC this morning all but accused them of grossly misjudging the fortunes of T-Mobile, the FCC has fired back with their own brief statement. In a short period of time, T-Mobile has re-emerged as a vibrant competitor in the mobile marketplace. Competition benefits all wireless consumers. The bottom line is that AT&T’s proposal to acquire a major competitor was unprecedented in scope and the company’s own … [read full article]

AT&T Points Fingers At FCC After T-Mobile Layoff Announcements

I’m a little both shocked at the way AT&T Senior Executive Vice President of External and Legislative Affairs is handling the T-Mobile call center announcement. Someone should tell this man using layoffs to point fingers at the FCC and all but accuse them of being responsible blows my mind. Lecturing the FCC by acting like everyone involved are schoolchildren reeks of amateur hour. This guy needs a wake up call in humility. … [read full article]

The story would come to dominate our attention for the better half of 2011 as it became one of the most hotly contested merger/takeover/acquisitions in recent memory. Everyone from Congress, to the FCC and Department of Justice all the way through to hundreds of consumer organizations across the country got involved … [read full article]

T-Mobile Asks FCC To Make All 700MHz LTE Networks Interoperable

T-Mobile has requested that the Federal Communications Commission consider the idea of mandating the interoperability of all LTE networks in the 700MHz band. T-Mobile argues that such a move would encourage LTE roaming and help boost public-safety, which also plans to use the 700MHz band for a nationwide broadband network. Current LTE devices offered by both Verizon and AT&T cannot work on both networks because they use different bands. The interoperability problem comes … [read full article]

T-Mobile Joins Rural Cellular Association, Boosts Reach Of Rural Carrier Group

T-Mobile USA has announced they are joining the Rural Cellular Association and becoming the latest Tier 1 wireless carrier to join their ranks. The addition of T-Mobile to the RCA helps bolster the position of the organization as a counterweight to the CTIA, AT&T and Verizon Wireless.

Editorial: I Still Think Throttling Data Sucks, There I said It

I’ve long thought T-Mobile’s loose definition of “unlimited data” has needed to change and now, with AT&T at the center of a throttling data news cycle, “unlimited” is once again called into question. In fact, one AT&T user successfully sued AT&T in small claims court winning $850 after the judge agreed AT&T had sold the customer an unlimited plan and then purposely slowed him down. AT&T has justified throttling by claiming it … [read full article]

So, You Are Disappointed T-Mobile Didn’t Get The HTC One X? You Shouldn’t Be.

Let’s just get this right out of the way to clear any up confusion and more importantly, to stop the complaints I see popping up in the HTC One S post comments. The AT&T version of the HTC One X DOES NOT have a quad-core processor, it has a dual-core processor. So yes, it appears to be a better phone, but with the exception of battery size and and screen size, they … [read full article]
