A few recent developments have woken us from our 2-year-plan slumber. We’ve been exposed to a very inexpensive unlocked phone in the Nexus 4, and T-Mobile has decided to stop subsidizing phones. If we can get a great unlocked phone for a reasonable price, or a cheaper rate plan with an unsubsidized phone, why shouldn’t we? Are we able to end our dependence on carriers? It’s possible, and maybe even better, to break away from the normal routine.
T-Mobile seems to be planning a sale for Valentine’s Day. In addition, they have a blackout period scheduled for late April that could be leading up to a big event.
Still trying to get to the end of the Nexus 4 rainbow? If you don’t mind getting it from T-Mobile, the carrier has announced that it will have more N4 stock in its entire stores in the coming weeks.
Up until now, Google Play was bundling their unlocked Nexus 7 HSPA+ model with an AT&T SIM card, requiring T-Mobile users to buy their SIM card separately. Starting today, Google Play will now offer a T-Mobile SIM card bundle as well.
T-Mobile’s LTE launch was delayed due to some tweaking that needed to be done. However, the fixes are in place and T-Mobile should be flipping the switch any day now.
Now we hear that T-Mobile stores are about to receive more Nexus 4 stock, so at least a few Android users will be able to get the device in the following days.
T-Mobile announced some time ago that they would be offering the Titanium Gray Samsung Galaxy S3 sometime in January. That time has come and now they are available in stores and online.
Terms like 4G and LTE have been tossed around with abandon the past year or so. Every carrier is either touting their LTE network, or promising you’ll have it soon. LTE is definitely our future, but it’s not our present. We are on the brink of some really fast data transmission speeds, so let’s get to know our new friend LTE. Is it really the new Standard? More importantly, when will you get it?
Check out our roundup of the juiciest news from day 3 of CES. Our team of mobile aficionadas is still hard at work looking at the new Android-powered devices on show, interviewing company representatives, and creating versus videos.
T-Mobile has been rolling up its sleeves and getting some work done on their network. They are now the first carrier in the United States with nationwide HD voice calling and they will soon be starting their LTE roll out in Las Vegas.
