T-Mobile is updating its network faster than Apple can update iPhones

T-Mobile's 600MHz will crush Verizon-

T-Mobile is bored of being the butt of jokes about bad cell service, and it's spending billions of dollars over the next couple years to change things. In order to catch up to the coverage of Verizon and AT&T, T-Mobile recently spent $8 billion on licenses prime low-band spectrum to improve coverage indoors and in rural areas.

The new spectrum is being freed up by relocating old analog TV stations, so we were expecting to wait years for the first deployment of T-Mobile's 600MHz network. But as it happens, the first new areas should be getting service this summer -- before any new phones actually support the new frequency.

Sprint is giving away an entire year of unlimited data for free

Sprint unlimited vs T-Mobile

Most cellphone plan deals normally come with all kinds of strings attached. Get a free iPhone! -- provided you buy two other iPhones, port three lines from another carrier, add insurance, and accept payment in the form of a Diners Club International gift card.

So when Sprint quietly announced that it'll give you a year of free unlimited service, I assumed that it would only apply to people who buy a new Essential phone, or perhaps require a pledge of personal fealty to Marcelo Claure. But actually, it's a lot simpler than that.

Yet another study shows Verizon and T-Mobile are the fastest networks

Verizon vs T-Mobile: speed test

For the last decade, the wisdom of the ancients has held that there are two types of wireless network in the US: cheap and slow, or expensive and good. T-Mobile and Sprint were cheap, and AT&T and Verizon were fast.

But the last two years has seen a complete upset in the way networks work. T-Mobile became good, Verizon became cheap, and AT&T started bribing people with cheap cable. This week, a new study has come out confirming the new world order, and it has T-Mobile and Verizon on top.

T-Mobile will give you a free iPhone SE if you buy any iPhone

T-Mobile's best iPhone deal

Starting today, T-Mobile is rolling out a buy-one-get-one-free offer across the network. Buy any new iPhone that T-Mobile sells, and you'll get a second iPhone SE for free. We've seen occasional deals on iPhones that drop the price, but a free $400 handset is nothing to laugh at.

Even if you don't need a second phone, you can turn around and flip the free second handset on eBay for at least $350, which means you could get a free iPhone SE or a half-price iPhone 7.

T-Mobile worker, who previously defrauded T-Mobile, arrested for stealing sex video from customer

T-Mobile fraud, bad sales

A T-Mobile employee in Pinellas County, Florida, has been arrested on suspision of stealing an explicit video from a customer's phone and emailing it to himself. It would be an unfortunate surprise to the store's owners, if it weren't for the fact that the employee was found guilty of defrauding T-Mobile in a weirdly elaborate sales commission scheme just last year.

Sprint finally beat T-Mobile for something

T-Mobile vs Sprint

Network speed comparisons often aren't kind to Sprint. Among the big four carriers, Sprint has a nasty habit of coming in stone dead last on average speed and coverage, while longtime rival T-Mobile has been competing with Verizon for the top spot.

So you'd think that Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure would be glad to be ranked above T-Mobile's bombastic John Legere for a change. But when the competition is to be the third-most-hated CEO in America, I'm not sure Sprint or Claure will be glad to have won.

T-Mobile is about to make its most exciting new service free for all subscribers

T-Mobile Digits Price

It might’ve taken a little longer than the company had hoped, but T-Mobile is finally ready to unleash its new "Digits" product. First teased all the way back in October 2015 when a T-Mobile executive fired shots at AT&T's just-announced NumberSync, T-Mobile eventually introduced Digits as a beta this past December. That beta has now hosted tens of thousands of participants according to Evan Feldman, T-Mobile's director of product marketing, and the company is ready to make it available more widely.

In fact, T-Mobile is announcing on Thursday that Digits will be made available to everyone beginning May 31st, and every single subscriber will have his or her phone number transformed into a Digits number for free.

Verizon iPhone owners, you’d be crazy to turn down this T-Mobile deal

T-Mobile vs Verizon iPhone deal

If there's one thing T-Mobile CEO John Legere loves more than gratuitous swearing, it's trolling Verizon's marketing department. T-Mobile's latest deal is a direct challenge to Verizon's customers, as it's making an offer that's difficult to beat: bring an iPhone or Pixel from Verizon to T-Mobile, and the company will pay off any device payments you have left, in full, no questions asked.

The offer is valid for any Verizon customers who have had their Verizon contract for at least 60 days, and who have a recent iPhone or Pixel. Specifically, the iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, or 7 Plus are eligible, as are the Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

What this means is you can have bought a brand-new iPhone three months ago, still have $600 left to pay on it at Verizon, and T-Mobile will pay that off if you switch to one of its plans and let you keep the phone. That's a hard offer to beat.

T-Mobile quietly killed one of its longest-running promos

T-Mobile Free Data for Life

Back in 2013, T-Mobile started a promo to give cellular iPads a lifetime of free service. Buy an LTE iPad from T-Mobile, and the network would give you 200MB of data per month for as long as you had the tablet.

But either that promo's working too well or not at all, because T-Mobile has quietly updated the deal to reflect that new iPad purchases don't qualify.
