There's no telling what T-Mobile has in store for this event, but the invite featuring a single tag-line falls in line with what we've seen from past uncarrier events. The only other hint that T-Mobile gives is a message saying it is "rewriting the rules of wireless again!" For a recap, during T-Mobile's most recent Uncarrier 8 event, the carrier unveiled Data Stash to the masses.

In any event, join us on March 18 at 12:30pm Eastern when we'll report on whatever the Un-carrier has in store. In the meantime, feel free to speculate below!.

  • What else could they do? Posted via the Android Central App
  • They give away free WIFI connection to all T-Mobile customers. OR T-Mobile will take everyone to Disneyland, but of course, you have to pay for your own ticket. haha
  • According to tmonews, one of the high vp's of the company hinted at something having to do with small business plans. That's what I'm guessing means "a real piece of WORK" Posted via the Android Central App
  • Why make that an "uncarrier" event. I would think those would focus on regulate consumers. Posted via the Android Central App
  • because it's T-Mobile and Legere likes to pretend that everything they do is a huge deal.
  • Pretend? You're probably on another carrier enjoying benefits that T-Mobile started. If you look at the price and benefits trend of the wireless industry over the last 5 years, you will see a huge difference once Legere became involved. What they do IS a big deal. Posted via the Android Central App
  • agree.
  • Seamless integration between WiFi and cellular connectivity and data would be amazing. If they pull that off I would probably fall out of my chair. Posted on my OnePlus One
  • They already have that on some devices. Since the 5.0 update on my Galaxy S5 I can hand off from WiFi calling to VoLTE seamlessly.
  • If you get the T-Mobile WiFi router from customer service or a store location it will be seamless. The router is optimized to switch with the network.
  • it has nothing to do with the router tmobile gives out. its the fact that its wifi calling to volte. as long as your phone is volte enabled it will hand off with any router and wifi calling
  • Notice how they didn't say A Real Network, as that would have been a lie.
  • You get an "upvote".
  • Haha, funny. T-Mobile bashing. Posted via the AC App on an LG G3
  • You must work for AT&T Posted via the Android Central App
  • Well why not? Their network is fine in Metro areas but leave there and good luck. It's like time travel back to 1990. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'm sorry you don't live in A Real City. Posted via the Android Central App
  • im actually sorry you *never leave* the city.
  • +1 Posted from my Nexus 7 2013 via Android Central App
  • Stinks that when you leave the city to go to the wilderness you have to have your phone in your face instead of enjoying yourself.
  • Lol I don't either. I live in Mississippi so T-mobile isn't an option for me. I wish it was though. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I love in Mississippi and have T-Mobile. I have good coverage most everywhere I go
  • I live in Valdosta GA ever heard of it....didn't think so i have TMO with zero complaints. My wife has att and when we have road trips going through smaller towns I'll have a connection when she doesn't know the rest ~My $0.02~
  • I went to school in Fort Valley GA and had both ATT and TMo. TMo actually had better coverage. But when I moved back to Alaska the TMo coverage there was none existant so I had to go back to ATT full time. Since moving to Vegas and now San Antonio I haven't tried TMo.
  • Wildcats Posted via the Android Central App
  • Went to FSU so I've been to and heard of Valdosta. There are definitely places in North Florida where T-Mobile is not great, but if it works where you need it, why on earth would you pay significantly more for one of the top two?
  • What is the definition of a real piece of work? Posted on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
  • Enterprise?
  • That was my initial reaction. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Probably small business. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Toukale
  • Ha! via the beastly NOTE 4
  • Legere? lol
  • Could they finally be getting some love from the Dutch
  • this is the least likely scenario.
  • why do you say that
  • Because they have cut them off and have been trying to sell them off for years. Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Troll
  • Am I wrong? No. Then STFU
  • Agreed. Wish he would chill out a bit with the posting. Posted via the Android Central App
  • By visiting the red light district?
  • Dutch? What are they going to do? Build a Dyke?
  • It won't matter to me unless the expand coverage, if you don't live in a huge city you are stuck with 2g Posted via Android Central App on 1+1
  • Sprint does that too. Posted on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
  • I live in a small town, sprint apparently had lte here since the initial rollout. Then att got it and finally Verizon. Posted via Android Central App on 1+1
  • Cookies over here please!! via the beastly NOTE 4
  • Sprint has better coverage in the open. They suck at getting it in the building in areas that have not been built out yet. Which is far fewer than t-mobile. Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • maybe in your area but that's not reality in mine
  • Thus the beauty of choice. You go with what works. Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Small town delta Pa slathered in Lte sprint.
  • Hey one of the dogs in my profile picture came from delta... Actually we have gotten several from there Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Nice little town I've been here ten months. It's nice and quiet :) Next-us
  • Quiet it is, and I love the area. Tough to get around where my breeder is but I would live there. Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Yep, Spring around here didn't have LTE until last year, and a city of 100,000 isn't exactly tiny. Meanwhile Tmob has been LTE for ages, they struggle inside buildings due to spectrum deficiencies but outside or in a regular house I'm golden. Old lead filled concrete monasteries like our mall? Dead zones everywhere.
  • My hometown of 1,200 people, has Sprint 4G let me tell you, its out in W. where near any large town...and has for a couple years.
  • I don't live in a "big" city and I have LTE 98% of the time
  • Which is why big blue is more expensive but better Posted via the Android Central App
  • Going to be in New Mexico and Arizona, I wonder how att's network will hold up. What does "partnered" 3g mean? Posted via Android Central App on 1+1
  • basically in areas that that your carrier doesn't have their own towers your service will go through your carriers roaming partners towers basically these are small cellular companies who build cell towers in more rural areas and rent their services to the bigger companies, these small companies only are in business to rent out or sell these towers to other companies . some times its cheaper for the bigger companies to not build in these smaller areas.
  • So do I pay extra or not when I am using these towers?
    My parents actually own the land the sprint tower is on in my home town. It is in the country. I forgot the name of the company but I think tmobile and Sprint are on the same tower (or maybe not). Posted via Android Central App on 1+1
  • 2G will be converted to LTE by the middle of the year. Posted via the Android Central App
  • With no hspa+ to fall back on, att is the only carrier with something decent to fall back on. With sprint and Verizon you are stuck with CDMA 3g Posted via Android Central App on 1+1
  • Which is much better than 2g in most places. Especially those that have been upgraded by sprint (verizon has been consistently good, not great but good). 2g on tmo is like dial up Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Exaggerate much?
  • Nope not at all. 2G is about dial up. Diminish much?
  • I get LTE on the coast of California way south of SF .. like quite a bit south so maybe it's not always the case.
  • but but but look at this speed test! -_-
  • Just about all the towers in my area have already switched to lte. . I live in rural southeast Alabama. Over the past 6 months I have seen lte just about everywhere I travel in the rural areas that once was slow arse 2g. Now can we penitrate buildings that don't have open wifi. And put some service of any kind up in rural south west Georgia. . Can't even call 911 in that area. But all in all pretty happy with tmobile. And they are getting better everyday... Posted via the Android Central App
  • melbourne florida, 18000 strong...4G LTE on tmobile here...
  • What, are they going to announce that their service works outside of larger cities now?
  • Blackberry back on T-Mobile??? Passport? That's my guess.
  • LoL blackberry
  • I'd be surprised. There was talks about that, but I'm not sure if the two Johns have made out...up yet.
  • Wifi calling on Unbranded devices
  • Not proprietary tech I am sure they do not want to lose control of. Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • It is like Verizon opening up cdma Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • No, it's not. T-Mobile has made their WiFi calling tech available to anyone who wants to use it. It's been made mostly open source. It's up to individual carriers to adopt it. The Nexus 6 is the first domino to fall in terms of WiFi calling on unbranded devices. But I'm curious if Google bakes it into just the N6 ROM, or AOSP in general. If it were the latter, we'd hear T-Mobile announcing support for WiFi calling on Nexu 5 and 6, and potential the 4 as well, and not just the 6. So, time will tell.
  • Ok so why isn't it an app on the Play Store? Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Because the software requires implementation within the firmware and at the baseband level. It can't function as a simple application. It works within the system in ways that standard applications cannot. It's more of a settings integration than an actual app. This doesn't mean that it can't become a standalone application in the future, but the Android OS (and iOS as well) would have to change drastically. While there are many WiFi calling apps out there, none of them integrate with the radio in the same way, allowing seamless handoffs from WiFi to the network and vice versa. Heck, even T-Mobile's software isn't perfect in that regard, but it's getting there.
  • Great explanation... Thanks Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Thank you for the explanation.
    Just curios: Would root access do the trick or does it go deeper than that?
  • Nope. It has to be fully integrated into the firmware. It's not something that can be installed and plugged in. Google now updates Android via three layers. Layer 1 is the firmware (OS version). Layer 2 is the APIs (Google Play Services, and the like). Layer 3 are apps. Downloading apps from the Play Store (like NoNexus suggested) gives you access to Layer 3. Root generally gives you access to Layer 2, and some mods give you limited access to Layer 1. T-Mobile's WiFi calling is fully integrated into Layer 1.
  • Then why does it work on my hd2 running CM?
  • I was unaware that Cyanogenmod ha T-Mobile WiFI calling working. However, if they do, that doesn't contradict what I said. I said that T-Mobile's WiFi calling has to be integrated into the firmware. CM is firmware (it's custom, but it's still firmware). TMO's software is open source. Ergo, it CAN be incorporated. I just haven't heard of it being done. Can you provide a link to the specific build that you're using? EDIT: I Googled it myself. The T-Mobile HTC HD2 has had its WiFi calling software extracted and made in a package compatible with various HD2 CM packages. IE, T-Mobile did the work, and someone ported it. It's not available as a common feature of CM.
  • Here's an article on it. It was also working on the sensation with aosp based roms. I seriously hope it becomes as easy to cook in as it used to be. Also, the hd2 was a Windows phone, so the app must have come from a different phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • UH... That's the old T-Mobile WiFi calling APP. That's nothing like the native WiFi calling that is built into modern phones. It doesn't have the same capabilities. Sorry man. It's a nice app, but it's been discontinued in favor of the firmware-level software that T-Mobile now uses. That app is no longer updated (why the XDA member had to repackage it). However, T-Mobile does have a newer version called Bobsled. It's better than that app, but not quite as good as the built-in WiFi calling. EDIT: Bobsled on the PlayStore (no longer listed by TMO, but rather, the owning company. Looks like their partnership ended when TMO baked their solution into firmware)
  • From a user standpoint, it worked the same as the firmware based. My point was that it was possible. Bobsled isn't the same thing. Posted via the Android Central App
  • No, it does not work the same from a user standpoint. And you're right, Bobsled isn't the same. T-Mobile started with a WiFi calling app. They ditched it in favor of a partnership with Bobsled. They ditched that in favor of their own software baked into firmware. The App you're using cannot handle handoffs from WiFi to cellular. It's lacking in other areas compared to T-Mobile's current solution. It's not the same no matter how much you want it to be.
  • I'm not using it, the hd2 is in a drawer. As for cellular hand off, that doesn't work and hasn't since UMA (first iteration of wifi calling, before android existed). Trust me, the wifi calling on the hd2 works exactly the same as it does on my g3 (except for mms I think, don't recall for sure) Posted via the Android Central App
  • Cellular handoff works on the iPhone 6 and 6+, and a few other devices, provided that they are handing off to VoLTE. Additionally, MMS/SMS works with it, as you mentioned. As I stated, and as you have partially confirmed, T-Mobile's current solution is different and more capable than the old app, because it integrates with the firmware at a deeper level, allowing for things that the app cannot do. There is no point in arguing that they are the same, when they are clearly not. Since we both agree on that (whether you admit it or not, you have agreed), we can end this debate. Have a good weekend, I'm out :)
  • You're completely missing the point, this wasn't a debate. Have a good weekend. Posted via the Android Central App
  • CDMA will be a thing of the past somewhere around 2020 anyway. Middle of next year Verizon is coming out with their first LTE-only phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I cannot wait for it all to be interchangeable Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Just more potatoes and not meat. I am always interested in what they do if it helps at all with the bills, and I have to admit they have at least made the other guys rethink some things, but a lot of it is fluff. Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Why do you care? It's not your bill they are reducing.
  • Sure it is. I was a bit skeptical when John L was going with his song and dance initially but even Verizon and ATT have changed things around to better compete with the low end of the spectrum (T-Mo). Most of John L is fluff with no substance (music choice and a few others), but I have seen my bill go down and can draw the dots as to why. I am giving tmo credit here.
  • Lol. Legere, love or him or hate him, is funny. I like him.

  • No responsible adult would let their kid around this man. Come on. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Maybe it's the One M9? This "One's". Posted via the Android Central App
  • Good catch. Sounds like a good guess!
  • I'm hungry for better building penetration, it's the only thing left AT&T and Verizon have over T-Mobile.
  • They also have coverage, and reliability, and everything else that matters over T-Mobile Posted via the Android Central App
  • pricing must not matter. freedom doesn't either.
  • Priced against Verizon last year, I only saved $10, not exactly a big deal either. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I wasn't aware that Verizon had a truly unlimited data plan for two lines at 50.00 a piece? With each additional line at 40.00 a month? Not sure which plan on Verizon you were on. But a 10.00 saving a year sounds like a stretch. Unless you are factoring in the phones installment plan. I'm a long time Verizon customer that has 5 lines on tmobile and saving lots of money every month. My bill with Verizon was 340.00 every month for 5 lines with each phone having a data bucket. And don't even get me started on the price when somebody went over there data. Now it's 220.00 with no worries of data overages... Posted via the Android Central App
  • the idiot is probably comparing the 4GB vzw plan with the T-Mo unlimited plan
  • I think ur mixing up pricing and value. Verizon doesn't have 123.5 million customers for no reason. And what do u mean by freedom? As far as I know Verizon phones are now unlocked, not sure about att
  • but but speed test! who needs coverage when speed tests!
  • I like how people down vote you here if you point out the obvious about T-Mobile. I was a tmo customer for 5 months and I travel frequently. I had no coverage when I left a city. T-Mobile sucks if you're a traveler.
  • I'm still hoping for a real nice 7" to 8" smartphone.
  • Huawei MediaPad X2 Posted via the AC App on an LG G3
  • Exactly!
  • The fastest growing Carrier in the Country, by far. Their Network gets better daily. If you have LTE outside but it won't penetrate inside your house, T-Mobile offers their LTE signal booster at no cost to the customer. They work fantastic. Just call Customer Service. I'm not talking about the wifi, this is a real signal booster. They sell for over $500.00 everywhere.
  • I have the 4G one. Can I swap it out for the LTE booster? Posted from the bando
  • Yeah I have that too.. it works great... full bars of 4g. Love it... might see if I can get the late version if it out.. we are data Posted via the Android Central App
  • T mobile is buying sprint now that they are number three Posted via the Android Central App
  • They couldn't if they wanted. It would be dt buying sprint and merging it with tmo in the US. Which I would be fine with but dt won't put up the money for tmo now let alone to buy someone else. And softbank would never sell Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • There's also the issue of getting FTC approval.
  • I can see that working more in favor of tmo buying sprint than the other way around. Still won't happen though. Softbank will never consider it Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Softbank is not selling Sprint though....
  • Sprint shares are up $1 in the last month.
  • Sprint is a falling knife. Try to catch it and you'll get cut... Posted by my soon to be retired Note 4.
  • price of shares mean very little.
  • $50.00 for unlimited 4g Everything Now That would be AWESOME!!!! Posted via Android Central App
  • I already pay that....
  • NOT on T mobiles regular $50.00 plan you only get 1gb of 4G .. Posted via Android Central App
  • 2 lines for $100 "promotion" is still going and I doubt they'll stop it anytime soon.
    That adds up to $50 per line
  • Only need one line Posted via Android Central App
  • Move to MetroPCS. It's a tmobile company. And you can get that price... Posted via the Android Central App
  • get a wife or adopt a kid from asia and get them a phone.
    boom 2 lines at $50 each
  • The family plan is really an incredible deal, imo: 4 lines, 2.5GB LTE data per line, unlimited calling/texting/data for $100. $25.00 for unlimited everything and 2.5GB of data.
  • Probably something to do with business plans.. Because right now all they have are the same plans for business.. But now they're going to have something separate for business lines.. (my prediction) Posted via the Android Central App
  • I think you're right, but that seems like a strange thing to have a press event about. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Dish and Tmobile merger. Posted via the Android Central App
  • TDish or DishMobile? Posted on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
  • HTC One M9 going up for sale...
  • It gonna be no more locked bootloaders no more kim selfies and the return of the hot tmo girl Posted via the Android Central App
  • Love T-Mobile, be a true non carrier and stop branding phones with logos. TMobile logo isn't as bad as the ugly big ass verizon logo but still the carrier didn't make the phone so no business stamping the ugly logos.
  • Huh? Non of my Samsung have tmobile anywhere on them? And if they did does the average person care? I mean really? what phones have tmobile on them? Not samsungs,not nexus,not iphones,not lg3,not sony. I'm having a hard time thinking what phones have them. Maybe the sub 200.00 phones that are exclusive to t mobile? Alcatel maybe? Lol Posted via the Android Central App
  • No logos on my One M8, Galaxy S5, Nexus 5. Where are these logos you speak of? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Some phones still have, take for example the xperia phones on T-Mobile, windows phone etc.
    They should be consistent and not put logos on any phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Outside of Verizon it is really time to ditch that argument. Maybe att as well but I don't deal with them at all. Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • My sources tell me that T-mo is combining a their gsm network with CDMA for better coverage nationwide. Started from the bottom, now we here.... Posted via the Android Central App
  • "Sources" roflmao
  • It wouldn't make sense for them to convert their network to CDMA. It's more of a dying tech than GSM. They already stated that they're moving towards converting their GSM to LTE. Unless, of course, if you were hinting at a merger. I think a roaming partnership with Sprint will be coming sooner or later, but through LTE.
  • Polls show that Verizon has the best coverage and call clarity. T-mo is merely using that technology (cdma) to improve their network. They aren't dropping gsm. John L is known for thinking outside the box, and this is just another example of his superiority.
  • T-Mobile can't just convert to CDMA. None of their phones (Nexus 5 and 6 aside) have the right radios. Investing in a dying technology (CDMA) would be foolish and pointless. It would not give any significant improvement and would take a year or two to add the radios to the phones being designed for them. Also, Verizon's coverage and clarity are due to their spectrum holdings more than the type of network. If CDMA made networks better, then Sprint would have edged out AT&T by now. It's the amount of spectrum. MetroPCS's original CDMA network had worse quality in a lot of areas. When they merged with T-Mobile and migrated costumers to HSPA the call quality largely went up. It wasn't the type of network, but the amount of spectrum.
  • If they use CDMA I'm not using T-Mobile, I need the ability to bring in my own gsm unlocked phones and use it in T-Mobile. Don't need the close crappy CDMA network that Verizon and Sprint uses. Posted via the Android Central App
  • They've stated that they're moving towards LTE, away from GSM. There is no evidence that they would use CDMA. Posted via Android Central App
  • This is where everyone is going, spooge is full of it, unless as stated, it is a cross agreement with sprint to provide better coverage. Which is good for everyone, and the main reason I wanted them to merge Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • I'm guessing the Tagline is referring to something tremendous. Like fully switching all 2G to LTE kind of tremendous.
  • Why is it that every carrier or manufacture has to have an EVENT just to announce something.
  • I tweet when I'm going to take a shit. Some people just want to know... Posted by my soon to be retired Note 4.
  • Publicity... Basically a big advertisement ploy. Why wouldn't they put it out there? If nothing was every hyped by an announcement event, many things wouldn't be as big as they are today. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Maybe when they say real piece of work they are talking free unlimited roaming data? Or more towers, extreme network expansion, something of the like, or maybe it's that Google music will finally be on the list of free streamers, or they are going to give people rewards for staying with them, there really is no telling what to expect
  • I thought Google Music was already one of the free streaming options. Posted via the Android Central App Edit: It is.
  • If its not regarding my Lollipop update for my G3, I don't want to hear from them... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Lol... Pretty sure not going to be that. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Perhaps it's in reference to smartwatches... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I like that T-Mobile is doing all these things differently so the other carriers catch on and do them too. Unfortunately T-Mobile has a terrible network because I actually like what they've been doing. Maybe they could gain more customers if they focus on getting signal out to places other than downtown city centers. I live about 45 minutes north west of Baltimore, MD and with Verizon I get full bars of LTE on our 180 acre farm. One of my friends has T-Mobile, and when he is over at my place his phone is in roaming mode. Sprint only gets 3G and ATT is the same as Verizon, also. If I could get Verizon quality service on T-Mobile I'd switch in a heartbeat, but until then I'm going to have to pay twice as much for my cell service I guess. Posted via the Android Central App on the 2nd Gen. Moto X
  • Funny I used to live in those parts and Sprint was full coverage. Still travel there regularly and have never had an issue. Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • say what you want about tmobile, they "used' to be the worst company. now id say they are becoming a threat to verizon and at&t. good service for a great price. they are the only carrier my wife and i get 3-4 full bars lte in our home.
  • No they are not there yet. I agree they have improved prices, but in the areas I travel I have yet to see them do anything to improve service and coverage.
  • T-Mobile and Sprint will NEVER have solid coverage like AT&T and Verizon under the current system. The odds are just too stacked against them. Big Red and Big Blue own 70% of the available spectrum and are sitting on a lot of it. They also have so much money available to them that they can continue to out bid the other two in future spectrum auctions. As a result, they can force Sprint and T-Mobile to out bid them at exorbitant rates, in order for them to get the spectrum they desperately need. The FCC and FTC claim they want a 4 way horse race, but they are promoting a 2 horse race. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I agree, and that is all the more reason that the tmo and sprint merger should have went through. The spectrum combination and the Softbank money might have put them up there in the race. Everything I knew with the FCC said that there were going to be issues, hurdles and concessions but it was doable. It fell apart and it was stupid. I was not just the FCCs fault either.
  • Please ban this guy ^^^^^^ more than 20 posts in this article alone. Spammy troll Posted via the Android Central App
  • are so cute especially when you add nothing to the conversation but call another a troll. Get a life
  • say what you will about the douchbag-looking CEO, at least he is decent enough not to use sex to sell smartphones and T-Mobile service. (i.e. Zeta-Jones :) )
  • T-Mobile good only on the top of a big building only.
    Most my co-worker and my boss switched from AT&T and Sprint to T-Mobile for cheaper price, Now they are kicking themselves for their stupid move. They find T-Mobile not good for them as they thought, they getting drop calls and phones not working in a lot of places.
    In my opinion T-Mobile worst than Sprint in taking care of their network, to improve it more than just add more customers. Sprint in my area did improve a lot in the past six Months before that, Sprint had poor signal and bad date. Now the are doing well on Speed Test and their calling too, but T-Mobile at the same time still behind everyone at the same locations.
  • Get one good signal booster for the whole office Posted via Android Central App
  • David, their signal not good out the big city, we driving for Detroit area to Milwaukee, Wi area almost half the trip the losing their signal.
    And why someone needs the signal booster for? T-Mobile always claiming the have better signal more any other carriers.
    I`m with Sprint I have no issue with their service at the same area.
  • I'm not sure I have seen this claim. Unless you are talking about the wifi calling commercial? And even that commercial doesn't claim they have the best service. They are just promoting wifi calling. Since they started the game. Posted via the Android Central App Note4 Tmobile
  • hoping they update my Nexus 6 to have Wifi calling finally. (really need it at the office)
  • Been with Verizon for years, mostly because of coverage, but I actually just checked t-mobile for Central PA 4g coverage and it's not bad. Not phenomenal mind you, but enough that I might consider them in a few months once some new models finally hit the shelves. Plus in pricing them out, I'd be saving roughly $40 a month. Some areas are spotty though, so I am a little apprehensive....
  • Face it until T-MOBILE quits downgrading you connection to 2G after 5GB I won't use them!
    They are just trying to charge you for using their damn algorithm! The only difference between
    2G and 4G is the algorithm in use! It's just software! It does not cost them anything more
    to let you use unlimited internet access at 4G! They advertise "UNLIMITED!" UNTIL THEY KEEP THEIR
