If the HTC One M9 is going to be your next phone, than we have tremendous news for you. The phone will be widely available on April 10, but you can get your hands on one much sooner.
HTC will start selling the unlocked version starting tonight at midnight. The cost is $649, but they will also offer you 12 months of interest free financing. This should get the phone into your hands sometime next week, well before the April 10 carrier launch.

Whilst it’s waiting on approval for its £12.5 billion acquisition of EE, BT has decided to take full advantage of the 4G masts it will soon acquire by launching its own SIM-only LTE service in the UK.
Well here’s an interesting deal for you. T-Mobile will give you one full year of Netflix for Free with the purchase of the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S6 Edge. That totals $107.88 in savings, assuming you’re not already grandfathered with the old $7.99 per month rate.
T-Mobile hasn’t specified if existing Netflix accounts will be eligible, but we assume so since a lot of people are already signed up with Netflix. It’s likely they will provide you some sort of code that you can redeem just like what Google did when they launched the Chromecast. Again, this is speculation since no details were announced.
It appears that the choice of mobile network providers in the UK will shrink yet again after confirmation that the owner of Three, the Hong kong based Hutchison Whampoa, has agreed terms to buy O2 from Spain’s Telefónica for £10.25 billion. This confirmation comes after the company performed 2 months of due diligence since the initial announcement on January 23rd.

Starting today, residents in the United Kingdom can pre-order HTC’s flagship smartphone of 2015, the One (M9), from Three for £39 per month on a two-year contract and an upfront fee of £19 to cover the cost of the handset.
MetroPCS has announced a new promotional unlimited plan for customers that starts at just $30 per month. The plan features unlimited talk, text, and data, but like always, there’s a catch.
The data is unlimited, but the high-speed cap is at a pretty low 1 GB. After that’s used up, you’ll be throttled. Pretty common practice with cheaper and prepaid carriers, so it’s not like MetroPCS is breaking the mold, but it would’ve been nice to see the cap a little higher. For $30, though, it might just be worth it. Read more
AT&T and Samsung are finally pushing out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 4. The update is actually a slightly tweaked version of what Samsung has been pushing out (which was is what Sprint’s users received) that brings Mute mode back. Otherwise, the update is identical and gives the Galaxy Note 4 all of Lollipop’s much appreciated new features. Read more
T-Mobile’s Music Freedom service might just be their most underrated Un-Carrier offer. It allows you to stream from participating music apps without penalizing your data. I can’t tell you how valuable that is if you drive around a lot.
They already have a slew of popular apps that are part of the service, but they keep adding more. They might be less obscure, but the bottom line is that T-Mobile is giving everyone an option. They have just added Tidal Music, BandCamp and MixCloud bringing the total to 31 streaming apps.
Hit the break for the complete list and don’t forget to enjoy some new music today.
