Hit the break for details on both devices from Samsung.
Currently the only devices capable of WiFi calling on AT&T’s network are iPhones. Most newer iPhones are able to take advantage of the feature, bypassing AT&T’s network to make phone calls. It’s a useful feature if you’re trying to conserve minutes on a plan or are somewhere that the carrier just doesn’t have great coverage, but it’s been incredibly limited up to this point.
T-Mobile is very proud of their Binge On program, and they keep making it better and better. The latest update brings a handful of new partners to the carrier’s unlimited streaming option, which means there are almost 90 video services available to stream without touching your data cap. Pretty impressive stuff. Read more
One of Project Fi’s promises for users is to make sure they always have the best connection available. This is achieved by having Project Fi devices constantly assess the current connection and adjust in real time for an alternate if available, even if this means switching between Wi-Fi and cellular networks.

It looks like BlackBerry just can’t hop off the bad news train this week. Just yesterday we heard from AT&T that the Blackberry Priv hasn’t sold very well, and now today it looks like T-Mobile has stopped selling the device altogether.

T-Mobile Tuesdays was introduced during the Un-carrier 11 launch event in New York City on Monday afternoon. The program rewards T-Mobile customers with free gifts every week along with special prizes. And it’s all because the carrier wants to express gratitude for receiving help from customers in its journey to reshape the wireless industry.
Because the program goes live on June 7, the T-Mobile Tuesdays app is ready to be downloaded and installed from Google Play.
The Priv seemed like BlackBerry’s last effort to fight back into a market that left the company for dead, but at first glance, things looked pretty positive. Sales weren’t knocking Samsung and Apple out, but the Priv seemed to hold its own.
