Sprint proves it doesn’t understand what ‘unlimited’ means

Sprint's Unlimited Plan
Sprint and T-Mobile both recently released unlimited data plans that aren't actually unlimited -- you can use a whole bunch of data, but you are limited to streaming SD-quality video and slow speeds for gaming. As part of a new plan that Sprint is offering you can now pay $20 a month more to stream video in full HD and game faster. This plan is called Unlimited Freedom Premium, which pretty much goes to show that Sprint didn't understand the meaning of the word "Unlimited" in the first place.

Watch Sprint’s CEO try to carefully avoid saying ‘we throttle video’

Sprint and T-Mobile's Unlimited Data Plan
Yesterday, T-Mobile launched a brand-new set of unlimited* data plans. At right about the same time, Sprint also announced a set of very similar data plans, and claimed that T-Mobile had "basically copied" Sprint's plans. Because this is business in the era of Trump, both CEOs then went on a mission to trash-talk each other. This resulted in Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure doing a spot on CNBC where he addressed T-Mobile's claims. But as part of the segment, Claure also answered questions about the limits on Sprint's data plans. What you're about to see is some of the most creative use of technical buzzwords to basically lie that I've seen in a while.

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

Best Cell Phone Service 2016
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 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.
