This morning, T-Mo CEO John Legere talked specifics of "Data Stash," the company's new initiative to let you rollover your unused data month to month, rounded up to the nearest megabyte.
I think we can safely label T-Mo a meddler. Helmed by the mildly eccentric CEO John Legere, the Uncarrier announced today that it'll offer a free year of unlimited data to current subscribers who successfully coerce a family member or friend from Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon to join T-Mobile.
There are many companies and individuals opposed to AT&T's proposed takeover of T-Mobile, but Verizon isn't among them. CEO Lowell McAdam voiced support for AT&T, saying mergers like this should be allowed if they government can't provide the spectrum telcos need.
It's powerful. It's fast. It's responsive. It has 4G-ish internet powers. It feels more solid than Google's Nexus. The HTC Sensation 4G is probably T-Mobile's best Android phone. But there's one pesky thing preventing it from Android superiority: HTC Sense.
The 3D functionality of the T-Mobile G-Slate might be a total joke, but it's a pretty good Android tablet. And now T-Mobile is offering a $100 instant discount if you give them a call and mention the right promo code.
A bit of news made the rounds yesterday, announcing two new unlimited plans from T-Mobile: The Even More Unlimited plan for $80/month (contract) and the Even More Plus Unlimited plan for $60/month (no contract). Then the official press release came out today making no mention of the Even More Plus plan.]
Well isn't this awkward! A day after AT&T declared it was swallowing T-Mobile, T-Mobile is announcing the G2x, a Tegra 2, Android smartphone that holds the distinction of being the first to support T-Mobiles 42 Mbps 4G network.
If you still have a Sidekick phone running the Danger OS, its days of being a fully functioning device are numbered. After May 31, 2001, the data services provided by Danger will no longer be available, essentially neutering the internet-centric phone. If you were unaware, Danger is now owned by Microsoft.
In an FCC filing, T-Mobile mentions an instance from a year ago in which an Android IM app refreshed its network connection so frequently that it "caused an overload of T-Mobile's facilities for an entire city." That's no good.
HTC's HD2 might have only been out for less than two weeks, but they still can't keep the phone in stock, selling out again this week. Furthermore, up to 21,000 HD2 phones have sold in a single day.
This unconfirmed memo from Nexus404 says what Project Black isn't: A phone. It also claims Black is a turnaround plan with "blazing speeds" "3x" the competition and phones from hot makers ("Nokia #1 and Samsung #2"). WTF.
T-Mobile's initial apologia to Sidekick users grieving their lost data was a joke. A month of free data service? To access what? Now they've manned up, giving affected customers something they might actually want: A way out of their contracts.
Rumors surrounding T-Mobile's very mysterious "Project Black" have been swirling around, and those in the know are claiming it's going to blast T-Mo out of fourth place in the carrier wars. What do we know about Project Black?
