The small mobile carriers aren’t the only one desperate for the iPhone. I had the iPhone on T-Mobile for a few years, and I can tell you that the internal memo suggesting “poor customer experience” wasn’t far off. Making Changes It sounds like T-Mobile would like to change that. The nation’s No.4 carrier is working [...]
It’s been a long time since carriers in the US have had to compete with each other. The smaller more competitively priced carriers tend to be regional (Cricket) or losing (T-mobile). Verizon doesn’t have to offer a GSM SIM unlock for it’s customes in order to push competitive advantage. They are seemingly happy where they [...]
Remember the news that AT&T was going to try to acquire T-Mobile, the Deutsche Telekom-owned company? Well, they’re still trying, but they’ve run in to quite a few snags.

Users walk up to a booth and control the game using a tablet. As soon as they start play on the tablet, the game comes to life right in front of them! Wouldn’t you love to see this on your way to work one morning? Sounds like a great excuse to be late to me.
