T-Mobile Employees Sue T-Mobile

If you’re a current or former T-Mobile employee who’s worked for the company since December 5, 2008, you may have received a notice in the mail recently. This isn’t the first time T-Mobile has found themselves at odds with a group of their employees seeking judicial intervention and relief. The latest suit, filed in United [...]

T-Mobile Pulls a 180 on Promoting Unlocked iPhone Plans

Well, I can’t say I didn’t see this one coming. Last month I told you about T-Mobile’s new promotion to attract customers with unlocked iPhones, since they’re the only national carrier who can’t sell it directly. I’ve seen the storefront signs here locally, showing an iPhone and an unlocked padlock, just as pictured below. Now, [...]

T-Mobile hopes its iPhone “business” will soon be booming

Our friends at Magenta released some details on their blog about their plans to pursue iPhone customers yesterday. They’re the only major U.S. carrier not to [officially] carry the iPhone and it seems that they’re tired of losing customers (read: money) to their competitors over it. In Q1, T-Mobile gained 187,000 customers, but quickly shed [...]

T-Mobile will be selling ‘against’ the iPhone. Not getting it — again.

Those of us who like to keep our phone bills cheap have either moved to Sprint, or are holding out hope for a T-Mobile iPhone. It seems the hold will continue, because the new training program at T-Mobile is setting September sales goals to sell ‘against’ the iPhone. Perhaps it’s coincidental that the information for [...]

Is the iPhone the answer to T-Mobile’s problems? (by @jkhowland)

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 [...]

The Sundance Swag Festival

Where there are celebrities, there is swag, and the Sundance Film Festival is no exception. Heaven forbid anyone start focusing too much on the actual films, nearly a dozen gift suites opened their doors the first Friday of the festival along Park City’s Main Street. The swag suites have become a regular, rather gross, part [...]

You can buy a GSM unlocked iPhone 4S from Sprint?

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 [...]

Will AT&T Ever Be AT&T&T-Mobile?

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.  The merging of two of the nation’s largest cellular providers was certainly big news and would be major trouble for other providers (Sprint definitely doesn’t want [...]

U.S. Government Tries To Block AT&T, T-Mobile Merger

For those of you who haven’t heard the news – though I hope you all have – AT&T and T-Mobile are merging…or at least that was the plan. Up until last Wednesday, AT&T was set to merge with T-Mobile in a “$39 billion takeover”, but the U.S. Justice Department was not about to let that [...]
