District Attorney George Gascon said Monday that AT&T Inc., Verizon Wireless, United States Cellular Corp., Sprint Corp. and T-Mobile US Inc. rebuffed Samsung’s proposal to preload its phones with Absolute LoJack anti-theft software as a standard feature.
T-Mobile has created a new program that allows its customers to upgrade to a new smartphone every six months. According to Mashable, the program is called JUMP or “Just Upgrade My Phone.”
T-Mobile announced they’ll begin offering the iPhone in April, but will change how customers pay for their phones and that they can have a plan without a two-year contract.
T-Mobile is doing away with the traditional and onerous 2-year contract to get a low price on a new phone. But, of course, it isn’t that simple: In many ways they are simply re-casting the old subsidy/tying system.
The days of buying a low-cost, subsidized cell phone in exchange for being locked into a service contract with a cellular carrier could be numbered if T-Mobile’s pricing strategy for 2013 gets any traction.
iPhones bought from Verizon Wireless are coming with a surprise feature. The phones are unlocked meaning they’ll work on other networks.
T-Mobile announced it’s now offering unlimited data plans for their smartphone subscribers following in the footsteps of Sprint.
For a family grieving over the loss of a loved one, it doesn’t help when a cellphone company goes after the person’s estate for service that’s been canceled.
Smartphone thieves could soon be stopped in their digital tracks with a new database that will allow service providers to block service to stolen phones.
The Justice Department filed suit Wednesday to block AT&T’s $39 billion deal to buy T-Mobile USA on grounds that it would raise prices for consumers.
