Sprint is in hot water with the FCC over accusations of cramming and the company could be hit with a big $105 million fine. Cramming is when a carrier adds unauthorized charges to a customer's monthly data bill, something the FCC has been clamping down on lately. Back in October the regulatory body fined AT&T a similar amount of money for the same reason.
T-Mobile has today launched a new service called Data Stash, something that it says makes it easier for customers to manage how much data they are using. At the Magenta Networks' Un-carrier 8.0 event today the carrier said it would remove the "infuriating wireless industry practice of confiscating data".
T-Mobile is continuing to go to war with other carriers with aggressive pricing and plans, the latest of which is the Simple Choice family plan. The company found that 40% of customers are worried about going over their monthly data, so the Uncarrier created this plan that gives two lines unlimited data per month for $100.
Windows Phone has made some gains in emerging markets but Microsoft's platform still struggles to make an impact in its home market in the USA. That is not going to get better anytime soon and if you are on the lookout for a Windows handset this Christmas your options have just lessened. Sprint, the third largest carrier in the United States no longer sells Windows Phone smartphones on its website.
T-Mobile had some solid Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales this year so I imagine plenty of you got a bargain from the Magenta Network. The Uncarrier is not finished though as it has a deal that is running through the whole of the Holiday Season to the end of the year. Customers can now grab either the HTC One M8 or HTC One M8 for Windows at a cut price, with both losing $50 off their normal price.
T-Mobile had a massive Black Friday deal bonanza, but the Uncarrier is not finished as the Magenta Network has a bunch of Cyber Monday offers going on today too. Take a look below at T-Mobile's special iPhone deal below, and you can hit up the source to see the various price reductions on a number of other smartphones too.
T-Mobile has confirmed its Black Friday deals and the Uncarrier is having a blockbuster sale that encompasses a great many of its products and services.
Consumer Reports has conducted a new survey between 60,000 users of wireless carriers within in the United States, and it comes as no surprise to see that none of the big four take the top spot. It seems that consumers crave the simply things in life, good customer care, and of course to feel like they are getting a deal.
AT&T has revealed that it is launching three new smartphones to its network. Two will be Windows Phone devices, the new Microsoft Nokia Lumia 830 and the HTC One M8 for Windows, while another HTC device is also coming to Ma Bell in the form of the Android powered Desire EYE.
Samsung's Galaxy Note Edge is ready to make its debut in the US market with some of the largest carriers in the country confirming the device. As you would expect from an exclusive device that carries some innovative features, the Note Edge is properly expensive. Considering it is not as rounded as the Galaxy Note 4, the Edge is really for those who must have new tech or want to stand out from the smartphone crowd.
