Remember earlier this year when Sprint bought a stake in Tidal? Well, that’s finally turning into a decent promotion for Sprint customers, as they’re going to get exclusive streaming rights to Jay-Z’s new album 4:44 when it drops next week.
You’re probably going shopping this weekend, so consider swinging by a T-Mobile for an incredible deal of two of the year’s hottest phones.

One of the great pains of traveling in Europe has been the often exorbitant charges that networks charge just for the privilege of using one’s own SIM card in a different country. Thankfully, except for a few bit part players, the European Commission has forced networks to abolish roaming charges when you are using traveling within the EU so long as you are using a SIM card issued in Europe, which means you can ‘Roam Like at Home‘.

Sprint may be feeling a bit stressed out despite still being considered one of the big four wireless carriers in the U.S. Although they are a top carrier, in recent years they did see their position slip down to the fourth spot and where they used to be the potential buyer of T-Mobile, the roles have reversed. Sprint has taken to employing many of the same tactics as T-Mobile with unlimited data plans and aggressive pricing to try to overcome their relatively weaker network coverage. Their latest move though may be the most aggressive one yet as they target Verizon customers with free unlimited data for one year for customers who switch.
You’re not going to choose a wireless plan in the blink of an eye, but you can easily educate yourself on whether or not a particular carrier offers what you want. It’s possible one of the carriers you consider will be Project Fi. To help you know about its sole wireless plan, Google has created the Fi Fit Quiz.
All you have to do is go through a couple of questions and you’ll know if trying Project Fi would be worth your time.
Essential won’t be bringing its first device to all of the major U.S. carriers anytime soon.
Earlier today owners of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ on the T-Mobile network started to receive notifications that an update was available for their device. A few hours later the same basic update start showing up for owners on Sprint. Thus far no major changes have been noted after the update is applied, though users will find they are now on the May 1, 2017 security patch for Android.
Earlier this week Motorola launched the new Moto Z2 Play and for the U.S. market, the exclusive carrier will be Verizon, although an unlocked version is described as being available “later this summer.” Normally one would expect a Verizon exclusive phone from Motorola to be adorned with DROID branding, but that is not the case with the Moto Z2 Play. If you are a fan of the DROID branding, the good news is that Verizon appears to have plans to bring it back in the future.
At the end of April, Verizon updated their prepaid offerings for customers who were not interested in committing to an ongoing service contract or who wanted to avoid a credit check. The big headline at the time was the inclusion of an $80 per month unlimited data plan to match what they offer on the postpaid side, although smaller plans with set data limits were available. Today Verizon announced some changes to pricing or the amount of data available through some of these plans.
Last year, T-Mobile announced T-Mobile Tuesdays as a way to thank customers for being, well, customers. Since the program’s inception, the carrier has given away free movie tickets, ice cream, pizza toppings, magazine subscriptions, and a ton of other things.
While many consumers are able to find a satisfactory standard smartphone from many of the big name manufacturers, that does not mean some niche markets are still looking for options. Today T-Mobile announced they are adding a pair of devices to their on-line and retail sales channels for buyers with some unique needs. Both the Kyocera DuraForce Pro and Alcatel Go Flip are now available on the magenta network.
You might remember Digits as that really cool feature that T-Mobile announced late last year, then went totally silent about. It went into beta after being announced, but we haven’t heard much about it since then. Well, the good news is that T-Mobile is finally ready to talk about it again, since it’s officially launching to everyone on May 31st.
