iOS 10 Is Messing Up Some T-Mobile iPhones and People Are Royally Pissed

On Thursday, T-Mobile sent out an alert warning customers using the iPhone 6, 6 Plus and 6 SE not to download the new iOS 10 update due to “intermittent connectivity issues.” Once updated, the phones are reportedly losing their connections until they’ve been restarted—a solution T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray suggested as a temporary fix.

How a high schooler outsmarted T-Mobile to get unlimited free data

T-Mobile Unlimited Data
I can't remember exactly what I was doing with my spare time as a 17-year-old teenager, but it sure wasn't finding flaws in T-Mobile's system. But I guess that's why I had to actually put up with a data cap. For Jacob Ajit, not so much of a problem. He discovered a flaw in T-Mobile's filters that allowed him to use the network's data, even when he hadn't paid for anything.

T-Mobile iPhone 7 Preorder Deal

But there’s at least a twist involved


Buying a new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus this week? Then you should know T-Mobile already has a hot deal for customers looking to preorder the handset ahead of its release next Friday. The carrier is offering you a free* iPhone 7 — and yes, there's an asterisk because the phone isn't actually free at all.

What to do with your Galaxy Note 7 now that Samsung announced a recall

Galaxy Note 7 Recall Replacement Process
Samsung’s unprecedented decision to recall all Galaxy Note 7 handsets sold to date, and to stop sales in various markets around the world, is definitely in your favor. Who wants to run around with a mobile device that might catch on fire while charging? We already told you everything you need to know about Samsung's decision, but there is a pretty big question that the company still hasn't answered: What are you supposed to do right now if you own a Galaxy Note 7?

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.
