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. But Apple and its carrier partners have found all sorts of methods of making it look affordable. 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. Feeling the pinch from T-Mobile’s aggressive pricing schemes, the carrier is reportedly working on some strong promotions for Apple’s newest iPhone family. More →

T Mobile Binge On List

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

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

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.

T-Mobile Vs Sprint

The stupidest thing Sprint has done in a long, long time

The stupidest thing Sprint has done in a long, long time

Having to compete with the constant onslaught of insults lobbed their way by outspoken T-Mobile CEO John Legere can, at times, drive some rival carrier executives crazy. We’ve seen it before and we’ll see it again. Wireless carriers are generally pretty old school, and they’re simply not used to having to deal with attacks like this on social media. They often get rattled, and when you’re rattled you make mistakes. Mistakes like, say, posting one of the most tasteless promotional videos we’ve ever seen.

We hope you’re sitting down for this one. More →

T-Mobile unleashes its most ambitious plan to troll AT&T and Verizon yet

If there’s one thing T-Mobile loves to do, it’s trolling rivals. Whether this trolling comes in the form of Twitter feuds with rival CEOs or silly skywriting stunts, T-Mobile just can’t help ridiculing its rivals in ways that are equal parts amusing and juvenile. The “Un-carrier” is at it again this week and is pledging bombard AT&T and Verizon with graffiti of customer complaints that will be written outside their stores with magenta chalk. More →

Netflix Throttling Video AT&T Verizon

It’s Netflix that’s throttling your video, not AT&T or Verizon

It’s Netflix that’s throttling your video, not AT&T or Verizon

It turns out that neither AT&T nor Verizon are throttling Netflix videos, as T-Mobile CEO John Legere suggested last week. If you’re an AT&T or Verizon subscriber, you will indeed get worse Netflix streaming than others, but that’s because Netflix applies the throttling, not the carriers. More →
