HUGE! #uncarrier #breakup #unleash — Des (@askdes) March 6, 2014 It seems that more than 300,000 people have already signed up with T-Mobile to receive updates concerning the recently introduced Samsung Galaxy S5. Those who signed up also had the added incentive to share whatever part of their personal information that they would want to with the mobile carrier, who so happens to have put up several […]
03/05/2014, Fragmentation is widespread on Android, the only way to increase distribution of any latest iteration is to make sure that its rolled out to all supported devices as soon as possible. However, releasing Android updates, particularly to carrier locked phones, isn’t that easy or quick. Galaxy Note 3 owners on T-Mobile can finally rejoice, the much awaited KitKat update is finally here for them. T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4.2 […]
03/05/2014, Remember yesterday we reported that thanks to the T-Mobile BlackBerry trade-in promotion that the carrier experienced an increase in BlackBerry trade-ins during the two weeks that the promotion ran for? At that time we weren’t sure if the increase in trade-ins meant that customers were trading in their BlackBerry phones for newer BlackBerry phones, but as it turns out, that was not the case.
03/04/2014, Some of you might recall that back in February, T-Mobile sent out some pretty troll-ish emails to BlackBerry customers, telling them to upgrade their phones to something else like the iPhone 5s. Naturally this did not sit well with BlackBerry’s CEO, John Chen, who is currently trying to turn the company around, and the last thing he needs is carriers to be unsupportive. Thankfully T-Mobile had a change of heart […]
03/03/2014, Great news for everyone that owns a Sony Xperia Z that they have sourced from the “uncarrier,” T-Mobile. The carrier has finally started releasing the much awaited Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for the smartphone today, and apart from all the bells and whistles we have come to expect from version 4.3, the update also brings various other improvements and fixes. The T-Mobile Xperia Z Android 4.3 update is rolling […]
03/02/2014, It may be one of 2013′s best flagship devices, but LG G2 owners have had to wait for quite some time in order to receive the Android 4.4.2 update. Earlier in the week said update for AT&T LG G2 was released, now its Magenta’s turn. Even though it hasn’t quite been pushed out over the air, subscribers can rejoice that the T-Mobile LG G2 Android 4.4.2 update is now officially […]
02/28/2014, Prior to MWC 2014, LG unveiled a trio of devices as part of their L-series lineup, and one of them was the LG L90. The handset was mid-ranged at best, but unfortunately at the time of announcement, LG did not share any plans regarding availability or pricing. However the good news is that if you were looking for something mid-ranged and if LG has been impressing you as of late, […]
02/26/2014, Good news BlackBerry users and fans! If you’re on T-Mobile’s network and you were thinking about getting yourself a brand new BlackBerry handset, you will be pleased to learn that the carrier has put up the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Q10 on its website. Wait, didn’t T-Mobile always sell those phones anyway? Technically they did for a while, but at one point the company stopped listing BlackBerry phones on […]
02/25/2014, Back in 2013, T-Mobile finalized their acquisition of MetroPCS, a smaller carrier based in the US as well. Now according to T-Mobile’s plan, they were looking to decommission MetroPCS’ network starting in 2015, but it seems that the plan could be moved up and could see the decommission take place before the end of 2014.
02/25/2014, T-Mobile has been pretty aggressive these days when it comes to trying to get new customers to hop onboard their service. Earlier this year we saw the carrier announce Uncarrier 4.0 in which T-Mobile was willing to go as far as paying for a customer’s ETF with a rival carrier to get them to sign with T-Mobile. Well it looks like T-Mobile’s efforts have paid off because according to a […]
02/24/2014, A short while back Samsung finally unveiled its much rumored 2014 flagship at the Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona. The Galaxy S5 has been unveiled in all its glory, and while the company itself has already confirmed that major U.S. carriers are going to offer the device, Magenta has sent out a press release on its own. The T-Mobile Galaxy S5 is slated to hit the market in April […]
02/23/2014, Magenta subscribers waiting for the latest Android update to drop on their HTC One can rejoice now, T-Mobile HTC One Android 4.4.2 update has finally been released. This over-the-air update should pop up by itself on subscribers’ devices, and even if for some reason it doesn’t, there’s always the option to manually search for the update through settings menu. Such updates are often rolled out in phases, so it may […]
02/23/2014, A few weeks back rumors started circulating about the possibility of Sprint Wi-Fi calling being launched in the near future. Its closest rival, T-Mobile, has offered Wi-Fi calling for quite some time now, so it makes sense for Sprint to follow suit as well. The carrier has formally announced the launch now, with Samsung Galaxy Mega and Galaxy S4 mini being the first devices to support Wi-Fi calling on Sprint […]
02/19/2014, You can be forgiven for asking about when the latest Android update is going to be available for your device. Android updates are never rolled out for all devices at once, there are carrier certifications and OEM tests that need to be run before an update is deemed to be ready for end users. These days the focus is on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, those with supported devices want to know […]
