As expected, Google has formally announced project Fi, their own mobile carrier. Many of the rumored details of the device are true, while others are not. First, Google says that for now, only the Nexus 6 is supported for Project Fi. You may either purchase a new Nexus 6 from Google or receive a special SIM card that you can use with your own Nexus 6 that you already have purchased. Also as expected, Google is running this service off a combination of Sprint, T-Mobile, and Wi-Fi. Instead of being on one network at a time, you will be...

For those unaware, at Walmart you can get select prepaid T-Mobile plans that aren’t available anywhere else. Starting tomorrow, April 18th, those prepaid plans will get a little bit better.

The other plan that costs $39.88 per month currently comes with unlimited talk, text, and 2.5 GB of 4G LTE data. Your data won’t be doubled,...

A few days after its counterpart on Verizon got Lollipop, now the T-Mobile variant of the LG G2 is getting Android 5.0. This is the same Lollipop as on other devices, except optimized for T-Mobile’s network. The actual version of Android included here in 5.0.2, so you also get a few bug fixes with this update. The software version specifically is D80130b and the update is 617MB, so you’ll definitely want to be plugged in and on Wifi, unless you have full power and unlimited data. The update is rolling out between today and...

T-Mobile is yet to rollout the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. But that seems to be changing soon as the carrier is reportedly testing out the update in its labs. The carrier has a dedicated software updates page on its site which lets customers track the update status of their device. And next to the Galaxy Note 4, we can now notice the “T-Mobile testing” tag, meaning that an update should be on the horizon. The carrier might take its sweet time to send out the update though, so don’t get...

T-Mobile is offering 250,000 free downloads of the remix of “I Want You To Know” performed by Zedd, who is a Grammy winning EDM artist. T-Mobile made the announcement as Zedd’s latest album True Colors is all set to hit the markets. The carrier has recently added multiple new music services to its Music Freedom plan including Beatport, which is a popular EDM music site. The carrier mentions that in order to be one of the 250,000 lucky customers to get a free download of the new remix, users will have to like/follow...

It all looks like a no-brainer. Essentially each and every Android power user in the market for a new “handheld PC” seems to be after Samsung’s Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge. The LG G3 is dated, although not by much, the G Flex 2 continues to keep an inexplicably low profile, while Sony’s Xperia Z3 started out obsolete last fall. No wonder carriers are already nixing it. But what about HTC’s One M9? Sure, the S6 pair prevailed in our head-to-head specs comparison, yet the all-aluminum, “dual-toned” HTC had a few things going for...

The Sony Xperia Z3 was launched back in September 2014 by Sony during the IFA event. Subsequently, the device was launched in the U.S. through T-Mobile and later via Verizon as the Xperia Z3V. And just under 7 months after its release, T-Mobile has decided to stop selling the smartphone altogether. The confirmation was provided by the official Twitter page of T-Mobile which redirected users to a page which only lists refurbished models of the Sony Xperia Z and the Z1S. This is a big setback for Sony as it has been striving to make an...

While T-Mobile is now allowing customers to manually update their LG G3 devices through sideloading the file onto their device, you still can’t have it automatically get installed. But on April 7th, the LG G3 will be able to automatically get Lollipop OTA. T-Mobile’s Senior Product Manager Desmond Smith confirmed this on Twitter in a tweet he sent out earlier today. #Lollipop Update: @TMobile #LGG3 software update available on 4/7 for download #uncarrier pic.twitter.com/OOqhTe7VaT — Des (@askdes) April 2, 2015 Once...
