T-Mobile partners with Gogo to bring in-flight text and voicemail

If you’re on a plane to another state and you suddenly remembered a very important message you have to send to your mother, you have to wait until the plane lands to be able to tell her to unplug the iron you left on in your room. But if your carrier is T-Mobile, you don’t have to wait anymore (or else your house might catch on fire or something.). The “un-carrier” has partnered with Gogo, an aero-communications service provider, so their subscribers can enjoy in-flight texting and voice messaging.

T-Mobile now offering free WiFi calls for subscribers

Someone predicted a few years back that pretty soon, mobile carriers would be obsolete since people will be doing all their messaging and calling through the Internet. Well, carriers are still here but one of them has realized that the second part of that prediction has already come true and so they are slowly adapting their business model to that scenario. T-Mobile is now flaunting that all their subscribers (given their phones have the capability to do so) will now be able to do free WiFi calling.

T-Mobile to bring Sony Xperia Z3 to US by end of 2014

No matter how excellent a smartphone is, if any of the US carriers don’t make them available, then residents won’t be able to experience the device. That has been one of the problems of Japanese OEM Sony as they have not experienced much support from local carriers in the region. But now T-Mobile has confirmed that they will be carrying the latest flagship of Sony, the Xperia Z3, which was recently launched before the start of IFA 2014 in Berlin.

T-Mobile expands Simple Choice family plans tablet options

T-Mobile is really upping the ante in the price and gadget wars with its competitors. A day after announcing that Simple Choice subscribers can upgrade their 500MB LTE data to 2GB, they’ve now expanded the Family Plan options by letting subscribers add a tablet to their plans. This means that one plan can now have up to ten lines, instead of the previously allotted five, as more families and businesses have need of more lines and gadgets as well.

T-Mobile Simple Starter subscribers offered 2GB LTE data

T-Mobile, which loves to call itself an "un-carrier” to stand out from its competitors, is offering subscribers to its Simple Starter plan the chance to quadruple its LTE data. While the Simple Starter plan is their entry-level offering for subscribers, there are users out there who would rather up their data rather than the talk and text options that they have. And this is what T-Mobile is basically offering for just a few additional dollars every month.

T-Mobile lures Sprint customers with unlimited LTE offer

It’s tantamount to a declaration of a “network war” as T-Mobile tries to bring over “unsatisfied” Sprint customers over to their fold. And what better way to do so than by enticing its own subscribers to lure friends who are unhappy with Sprint’s latest move by promising both of them unlimited LTE data for a year. This was announced in a no-holds barred press release from T-Mobile in an apparent response to Sprint’s latest offer to subscribers from other networks.

T-Mobile won’t charge users for speedtests

If you've been worried that running Ookla's network testing app or any other similar app would run you afoul of your monthly data cap, worry no longer. At least, if you're a T-Mobile subscriber. The carrier has come out to confirm that data transmitted via network speed tests won't count towards a user's regular data usage.
