Sprint announces Q1 2015 earnings – It’s still ahead of T-Mobile, but only just

During the earnings call for the final quarter of 2014, John Legere announced that – unofficially – T-Mobile was already ahead of Sprint in total subscriptions. But the official numbers didn’t agree. After T-Mo’s blockbuster quarter, many had assumed that those official numbers would catch up. With the Verizon and AT&T posting disappointing subscriber add numbers, the industry was all but certain … [read full article]

At least one T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge user has Android 5.1.1 update

According to one XDA-Developers forum member, T-Mobile has started its rollout of Android 5.1.1 for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. And by “rollout” we mean, one person has it so far, as far as we know.
