T-Mobile isn’t the best wireless network, according to the people

T-Mobile has the cheapest prices and best perks in the industry, and certainly the most sweary executive. But for one of the things that matters most to customers — good customer care — AT&T actually pips the “Uncarrier” to the flag.

The latest edition of the J.D. Power satisfaction survey ranks AT&T as the network with the best overall customer care experience. T-Mobile finishes second, with Verizon and Sprint rounding out the best of the rest.

T-Mobile Binge On List

T-Mobile is adding Apple Music, ABC and Dish to its unlimited Binge On service

T-Mobile is adding Apple Music, ABC and Dish to its unlimited Binge On service

T-Mobile’s Binge On is a convenient loophole that lets customers stream music and video from a long list of providers without it counting against their 4G data limit. The more services that participate in Binge On, the better, so the news that Apple Music, ABC, Disney and a host of other providers are joining today is particularly good.

The announcement today brings the list of participating services up to 100. It’s gone from being a select group of video and music services to a who’s who of online video and music.

T-Mobile Free Data for Brazil

T-Mobile is giving free data and calls to customers in Brazil for the Olympics

T-Mobile is giving free data and calls to customers in Brazil for the Olympics

Downside of going to Rio for the Olympics: you might get Zika. Plus side of going to Rio (at least if you’re a T-Mobile customer): free data for the duration of the games.

The carrier-that-isn’t-a-carrier announced on Thursday that any customers heading to Rio for the Olympics will get free data, free calls back to the US, and free worldwide texting. Given that you can pick up a pre-paid SIM for less than my monthly plan, might be worth buying if you’re heading to Rio this August.

T-Mobile Tuesdays: Free Data

T-Mobile is giving free unlimited data for Pokemon Go

T-Mobile is giving free unlimited data for Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go is addictive fun, but a downside to wandering around with your smartphone out is that it can run through your data plan quite quickly. In a masterpiece of marketing, T-Mobile is fixing the problem by giving all customers free, unlimited data for Pokemon Go for the next year.

The free data comes as part of a special T-Mobile Tuesday, which will see the network giving away a bunch of free stuff to its customer, including Lyft rides, cheap battery packs and a Frosty.

T-Mobile Binge On Study

T-Mobile’s Binge On is misleading users, study finds

T-Mobile’s Binge On is misleading users, study finds

For the past few years, T-Mobile has been making waves with its ‘Un-carrier’ campaign, successfully separating itself from other carriers while shaking up the entire industry in the process.

Quite possibly the biggest Un-carrier move to date was the debut of Binge On, which allows users to stream videos from certain services over their mobile devices, without it counting toward their monthly data allotment.

Unfortunately, despite the appearance of a great offer, Binge On has struggled with bad publicity since its inception, and now a new study from Northeastern University is bringing to light even more issues with the incentive.

T-Mobile Tuesdays Dominos

T-Mobile gave away so much free pizza it broke Domino’s

T-Mobile gave away so much free pizza it broke Domino’s

T-Mobile Tuesdays is a brand-new freebie program that the company unveiled last week amid much fanfare and swearing. It’s a simple idea: every week, T-Mobile customers get freebies, like free movie tickets or a free pizza.

Only, it appears that so many people wanted free Domino’s — even on a Tuesday night — that it overwhelmed the world’s largest pizza chain. Oops.

T-Mobile is giving away tons of free stuff, here’s how to get it

T-Mobile is known for doing things a little differently to other carriers, and its rewards program is much the same. T-Mobile CEO John Legere just announced that the company will give all customers a weekly gift, one share of stock, and free in-flight Wi-Fi.

Life looks pretty good on the Uncarrier train right now.

Competition is finally forcing AT&T to lower iPhone prices

The iPhone’s price may not have changed in the past few years, as Apple is still looking to maintain its high margins on its best-selling product.

If you’re already planning to buy the iPhone 7 when it comes out this fall, you better make sure you check out AT&T’s offers.

T-Mobile just made its Binge On unlimited video streaming even better

T-Mobile’s Binge On service is a handy loophole that lets you stream video from select services without it counting against your data cap. Big players like Netflix and YouTube have already been on board, but this morning, T-Mobile’s rounding out the offerings by adding names like NBC and Univision.

The announcement today added a handful of new participating media outlets, bringing the total up to 80. The biggest names being added are NBC and Univision, which should be good news for fans of SNL or Ninja Warrior. The other interesting move is adding music videos from the likes of Spotify and Tidal onto the Binge On platform.

T-Mobile Vs AT&T Nick Symmonds Tattoo

T-Mobile may soon troll AT&T in ways we never thought possible

T-Mobile may soon troll AT&T in ways we never thought possible

In case you haven’t noticed, T-Mobile will go to great lengths to troll its rivals, particularly AT&T. That said, we never expected that T-Mobile CEO John Legere would ever go this far just to take a shot at a rival carrier.

Per ESPN, Legere this week paid $21,800 for the rights to pick out a temporary tattoo that will be placed on track star Nick Symmonds’s right shoulder. This being Legere, he immediately started musing about whether to give the tattoo an anti-AT&T message. More →

T-Mobile Lawsuit No Contract Fees

Lawsuit alleges T-Mobile is deceiving us about its ‘no-contract’ initiative

Lawsuit alleges T-Mobile is deceiving us about its ‘no-contract’ initiative

T-Mobile loves to brand itself the “Un-carrier” but a new lawsuit alleges that it’s doing something very carrier-esque by charging customers sneaky early termination fees despite the fact that they never signed onto any service agreements. Per Top Class Actions, the suit is alleging that while “T-Mobile attracts customers by touting ‘no contract’ cell phone service plans without any hidden fees,” the company actually “has a practice of unlawfully seeking the entire amount under the device contract as immediately due” whenever a customer leaves T-Mobile early.

T-Mobile Vs ATT Vs Verizon Subscribers

It’s almost ridiculous how much T-Mobile is beating its rivals

By on April 19, 2016 at 10:00 PM.

It’s almost ridiculous how much T-Mobile is beating its rivals

It can’t be said enough: T-Mobile under CEO John Legere really has shaken up the wireless industry in the United States. Whether it’s been introducing rollover data plans, paying off rivals’ early termination fees or eliminating overage fees, the “Un-carrier” has dictated the terms of competition in the mobile industry for the past three years. The carrier has been regularly rewarded for its work by posting eye-popping quarterly subscriber numbers, and a new report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners shows just how much T-Mobile has been thrashing rivals.
