Softbank purportedly in final stages of talks to acquire T-Mobile

One rumor that just won’t go away recently is the speculation surrounding Softbank/Sprint’s intention to buy Deutsche Telekom’s controlling share in T-Mobile U.S. And just because it’s Christmas Eve doesn’t mean that those rumors are going quiet. Recent information passed on to Nikkei (as reported by Reuters) suggests that Softbank is in the latter stages of discussions with Deutsche Telekom about buying the now-popular Uncarrier, T-Mobile. There are problems however. As we already … [read full article]

What if Uncarrier 4.0 is other carriers’ early termination fees covered? [UPDATE: It probably is]

Ever since John Legere teased Uncarrier 4.0 on his twitter account earlier this week, I’ve been racking my brains trying to decide what it’s most likely to be. In terms of its own plans, value and available products, T-Mobile has done about as much as it can do to convince customers to join.

Over the past few weeks, rumors of a VZW/Tmo deal have been gathering pace. We’ve known Verizon … [read full article]

WSJ: Sprint looking to buy T-Mobile US

I have to be honest, I’m not entirely sure what to make of this story, but I’m certain it’s going to create a lot of conversation and debate. According to the Wall Street Journal’s sources, Sprint is looking in to the possibility of buying out T-Mobile. This would obviously create one larger carrier capable of competing with Verizon and AT&T. Whether or not a purchase would go through is another matter … [read full article]

New $35 unlimited talk and text prepaid plan coming on December 8th – UPDATE: Official Statement

According a recent Field Sales News update, Tmo is set to offer a new plan for a limited time. For $35, from December 8th, you’ll be able to get unlimited talk and text.
