T-Mobile expands free roaming to 210 countries, adds $5 international LTE day passes

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

T-Mobile was the first US carrier to really push the idea of free international roaming. although the data speeds have always been terrible. Still, your T-Mobile phone works in other countries, which is more than you could say a few years ago. Now, Tmo has expanded free roaming to even more countries, and there's a cheaper option if you want LTE data while traveling the world.

Before this announcement, T-Mobile offered free international roaming in 140 countries around the world.

Samsung Galaxy J7 arrives at AT&T and T-Mobile, joined at the house of Legere by LG’s Stylo 4

Friday, July 13th, 2018

Most of us probably focus on flagships in the news—after all, it's the high-performance, expensive devices that get all the fun new features first—but there are plenty of other phones out there. The majority of people probably don't concern themselves with picking up the latest and greatest gadgets, and mid-range phones like Samsung's Galaxy J7 fill that niche. So those on a budget picking up a phone from T-Mobile or AT&T now have some added choice starting today, as Samsung's Galaxy J7 has arrived at both carriers.

Sprint announces new unlimited plans with even more limits than you thought possible

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

I think we can all agree at this point that the term "unlimited" has become utterly meaningless in the context of phone plans. Most unlimited plans include at least a few odd limits, but Sprint's latest offerings are really impressive in how many limits they apply to "unlimited" service. The old Unlimited Freedom plan will soon be replaced by Unlimited Basic and Unlimited Plus.

Here's a quick breakdown of what the two plans offer.

Report: US to block China Mobile’s application to enter US market

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

The US government has been growing increasingly critical (perhaps even paranoid) when it comes to the operation of Chinese companies in the US. Between the on-again-off-again ZTE snafu and Huawei's allegedly government-influenced issues with its US carrier deals, Chinese tech companies are running into increasingly more problems doing business in the United States. This is just the start, though, as according to a recent report by Bloomberg, the FCC is set to deny China Mobile's application to provide telecommunications services in the US.

OnePlus is working on US carrier partnerships and a 5G-capable phone for next year

Friday, June 29th, 2018

Early in the year, we'd heard that OnePlus was "investigating" potential deals that could be struck with US carriers. News on that front has been pretty silent since then, but OnePlus founder/CEO Pete Lau has confirmed to PCMag that the company is now in talks with US carriers. Additionally, a 5G-capable phone is said to be coming next year.

Lau spoke with PCMag at Mobile World Congress Shanghai on these topics, explaining that OnePlus recently began to offer phones through European carriers, and US carriers are a natural next step.

AT&T is screwing customers by almost tripling a bogus fee

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

If you're an AT&T customer and you've ever read your wireless service bill in detail, you may have noticed something called an "Administrative Fee" featured as one of the line items. Up until early this year, that "fee" was typically assessed at $0.76 per postpaid line - not nothing, but over the course of two years of service, it ends up being a little over $18.

AT&T has now very slyly almost tripled the cost in the last six months.

T-Mobile announces FamilyMode, a paid service for keeping tabs on kids

Monday, June 25th, 2018

Many mobile carriers — like Verizon and Project Fi — offer ways of monitoring kids' mobile activity. Today, the "Un-Carrier" announced its take on the concept, which it's calling FamilyMode. T-Mobile's approach is novel, though, in that it includes an optional piece of hardware that extends the service's functionality to your home Wi-Fi network.

In addition to a $10 monthly fee, FamilyMode's hardware component, the Home Base, costs $20 up-front ("for a limited time;" it'll eventually cost $100).

Verizon and AT&T pledge to stop selling location data to third-party brokers

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

News broke earlier this year that several firms with access to carrier location data were providing access to it with little or no safeguards. In fact, you could access the some of these tools to track a phone as a demo of the service. AT&T and Verizon now say they will stop selling data to these third-party brokers. That does not mean, however, they won't sell your location data at all.

This issue came to the fore earlier this year when a former sheriff was charged with illegally using a phone location service 11 times without securing a court order.

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Sprint and T-Mobile are finally trying to tie the knot, but Sprint isn't just hanging back while it waits for the deal to be done. It's still planning its own 5G network to begin deployment in the coming year. It already had an initial list of 5G markets, but it's adding to it today.

Sprint's new 5G cities are New York, Kansas City, and Phoenix. They join the previously announced markets of Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, and Washington DC.
