T-Mobile Pokes Fun At Verizon Wireless After LTE Outage

Under normal circumstances, I would have woke up this morning, seen the tweet T-Mobile directed at Verizon and cracked a smile. Instead, I’m focused on watching Seattle area residents beat their future parent company’s pride and joy iPhone in speed tests. Of course, who knows how or if Verizon might playfully respond. If I were Verizon i’d respond with a simple statement of “Ok Tmobi…I mean future AT&T.” Just saying. [read full article]

Why Choose T-Mobile Over Everyone Else?

Magenta has long been known for its value in pricing and customer service as the reason why most choose it over the other 3 major carriers. Now, with new 4G networks launching and new handsets being available, T-Mobile has published a training sheet for employees detailing exactly why T-Mobile is the best option for consumers. The training sheet focuses on T-Mobile’s Network, Phones, Pricing, and Savings per year compared to that of AT&T … [read full article]

T-Mobile FINALLY Takes On Verizon AND AT&T With Carly

So what’s the fun in having a great device running a slow network? Well, there is no fun at all according to this new T-Mobile advertisement taking on both Verizon and AT&T. I can’t say how happy I am that T-Mobile is extending the fight beyond AT&T and going after the real competition, Verizon. You won’t find this ad on tv for another week, so feel free to rematch it here a few times. [read full article]

Verizon, The iPhone And You – An Editorial

If you have been on the Internet at all over the past four days you probably know about the latest announcement.   Verizon held a rather exclusive press conference today to announce their partnership with Apple, allowing them to carry a CDMA version of the iPhone.   Guess what?  The sky hasn’t turned red, the earth hasn’t opened up, pigs aren’t flying and, most of all, twitter didn’t collapse, so this clearly wasn’t … [read full article]

Verizon CTO Calls Out T-Mobile HSPA+

Verizon is showing its usual arrogance over its network via an interview with CTO Tony Melone from Cnet. While I’ll be the first to admit, Verizon really outshines the other carriers, including our Magenta at CES, hands down that doesn’t mean they have the strongest offering of all. With that in mind, we won’t deny that they came out swinging with their selection of LTE offerings but T-Mobile is promising 25 phones[read full article]

Verizon Hoping To Keep The iPhone For Itself After AT&T Exclusivity Ends?

Hoping to not get lost in today’s Nexus S news cycle is a report by analyst Shaw Wu of Kaufman Bros who believes that Verizon will pay to keep the iPhone away from Sprint and T-Mobile.  I believe it’s safe to say that analyst opinions like this are often steeped in fantasy more so than fact but it’s an interesting proposition.  Where we take issue with the logic is that Wu believes Android has … [read full article]

Is Verizon Single-handedly Responsible For Androids Success?

In the midst of yesterdays Verizon LTE announcement, a little ego showed on behalf of Verizon as they proclaimed themselves responsible for the success of Android. “Android really took off when Verizon got involved” is the direct quote from Verizon CTO Tony Melone and comes off pretty matter of fact. T-Mobile was the first carrier to launch Android in the US with the G1 but can Verizon really take credit for Androids current success? … [read full article]

T-Mobile’s Reaction To Verizon’s LTE Announcement

With the 4G Wars heating up after today’s announcement of Verizon’s new LTE network  bringing impressive speeds to the table, T-Mobile shares its reaction to the announcement.  T-Mobile welcomes Verizon to the “4G world”, claiming that T-Mobile subscribers have been enjoying “America’s Largest 4G Network” for a while now and love it.  Magenta also states that it is still on track to cover 200 million people by the end of 2010.  Compare that to … [read full article]

The 4G Wars Are Definitely On Now

Following Verizon’s LTE announcement this morning, it’s really quite clear that the battle for the “4G” speed war has begun.  Early tests from bloggers and journalists  testing the Verizon network are coming back with very impressive results, although they all admit the results are on a network with almost zero load on it.  Up until this point however, T-Mobile has been widely heralded as the speed leader, a prize they may only hold … [read full article]

Sprint Claims To Be Only “True” 4G Network, They Also Have Big Pipes

If Sprint was hoping to steer the conversation back in their direction with this, the latest entrance in the “4G” argument, they should have tried harder.  This video, which offers up a mini-tutorial on how Sprint 4G works as well as some digs at the competition, effectively does neither very well.  All I learned from this video is that Sprint apparently has a larger pipe than everyone else. Claiming that “other carriers might claim to have … [read full article]
