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

T-Mobile Free Data for Brazil
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 is giving free unlimited data for Pokemon Go

T-Mobile Tuesdays: Free Data
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’s Binge On is misleading users, study finds

T-Mobile Binge On Study
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.

Report says Facebook video could be next in line for T-Mobile’s Binge On free data streaming

If there’s one thing guaranteed to eat your data plan’s allowance at an alarming rate, it’s streaming video. T-Mobile has been gradually adding more services to its Binge On program – which allows customers to stream lower-quality video from specific services without using up any of their data – and Re/code reports that Facebook video may be next in line.

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

T-Mobile Lawsuit No Contract Fees
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.

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

T-Mobile Vs ATT Vs Verizon Subscribers
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 adds 16 more services to Binge On & Music Freedom data-free streaming incl. Amazon Music, EPSN Radio, Spike, more

T-Mobile is adding more services to its Binge On and Music Freedom features, which allow its customers to stream video and audio content from certain apps without eating into their wireless plan’s data allowance.

“It’s a fact … Un-carrier Data is different than Carrier Data. It’s better! Nobody does data like T-Mobile!” said Legere. “Un-carrier Data is not only faster, it lasts a lot longer than the other guys… As of today, you stream unlimited music and video from over 100 providers – without ever touching your Un-carrier Data or worrying about overages—and you can stash what you don’t use for later. Try that with Carrier Data. It’s gone in a flash, and you’re getting hit with penalties—or they repossess it after a month or two. Ridiculous!”

Among the 16 total new services being added today, users can now stream audio data-free from Amazon Music, Chilltrax, ESPN Radio, OHIO.FM, PreDanz and Uforia.

And for video, services officially added to the list today include  Dailymotion, EPIX, OVGuide, OWNZONES, Viki, YipTV, 120 Sports, Nickelodeon, Spike, and TV Land.

T-Mobile shared some stats about the Binge On and Music Freedom initiatives noting that users have streamed approximately 90 billion songs without using data since launch (around 210 million songs a day). It also pointed out that its users “are watching 2x more from free streaming sites on plans with limited data and have streamed over 190 million hours of video for free.”

The addition of the new services today brings up the number of audio and video services supported by Binge On and Music Freedom to 100 total. You can view a full list of supported services on T-Mobile’s website.
