TMobile details its UnCarrier plans TKTK

T-Mobile already let its new “UnCarrier” plans loose on its website without much fanfare this past weekend, but it’s now finally talking a bit more about them at its big launch event in NYC. Dubbed Simple Choice, the new plans all of course do away with the traditional two-year contracts, and they all start with both unlimited talk and text. The differences come with the data options: the basic $50 a month plan will get you 500MB of high-speed data with rates throttled down to 2G speeds after you hit that limit. Heavier data users can opt for 2GB of unthrottled data for an extra $10 per month, while fully unlimited 4G data will set you back an extra $20 a month (or $70 total). A second line will run another $30 on top of that, with each additional line costing $10 apiece. Not surprisingly, the carrier is also making a big marketing push to promote its new approach. You see its first commercial after the break, and find a full breakdown of the plans at the source link below.

HTC 8X for Verizon shipping unlocked, works with AT&T and T-Mobile SIMs

HTC 8X for Verizon shipping unlocked, works with AT&T and TMobile SIMs

Consider it a trend: Verizon’s wireless charging 8X variant will work out of the box with U.S. GSM networks. According to Windows Phone Central, users have reported success swapping in AT&T and T-Mobile micro-SIMs, indicating that the devices are shipping unlocked. And it’s not just hearsay either, as we’ve confirmed on our own review unit that this does indeed work. In fact, with the network openness afforded by recent additions like the Droid DNA and iPhone 5, this is quickly becoming more rule for the carrier than exception. Certainly we can all agree that it’s a welcome break from Big Red’s stodgy past.

AT&T and TMobile temporarily share networks in New York City and New Jersey, shoulder the posthurricane load

Communication has been all too spotty across much of New York City and New Jersey since Hurricane Sandy struck the region, and those who can get through on their cellphones have found themselves on particularly crowded networks. AT&T and T-Mobile are providing some much-needed, if temporary, relief: the two have struck a deal to share their GSM and 3G networks in the area with no roaming fees or plan changes while the networks come back, with the best-functioning network taking precedence in any given connection. A return to the normal state of affairs hasn’t been fixed in stone and will likely depend on many, many factors, but it’s a much appreciated gesture for residents who might not have a choice to relocate for a vital phone call.

Why People Bought Android Phones Instead Of iPhones, According To An Apple Survey (AAPL, GOOG)

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-why-people-bought-android-phones-instead-of-iphones-according-to-an-apple-survey-2012-8

An internal Apple study from 2011 reveals that the number one reason people ended up buying an Android phone after considering an iPhone was that they didn’t want to leave their wireless carrier.

The chart below is based on data that came out during the Samsung-Apple patent trial (via CNET). It suggests that if Apple had been on all carriers in the U.S. Android would not have become as popular as it did.

Alas, Apple was not on Verizon, Sprint, or T-Mobile. This gave Google an opportunity to win over new customers. Those customers are likely coming off their first Android contracts now. It will be interesting to see if they stick with Google, or if they decide to jump to the iPhone.

T-Mobile Is Probably Bringing Back Real Unlimited Data Plans AgainTmonews is reporting that T-Mobile, the carrier of the people, will soon be bringing back the holy grail of unlimited data plans. It’s the real deal, folks. No speed limits, caps, overages, throttling or anything—just an unlimited amount of data for you to use every month, as it should be.

T-Mobile will be re-joining Sprint, who has long been the only big carrier to offer unlimited data, as the two carriers to offer affordable unlimited data plans. The new unlimited data plan will be $30 for Classic Plan customers and $20 for Value Plan customers. Is it too early to hope that this will trickle into an unlimited data revival for AT&T and Verizon? Can we transport back to a few years ago where it was always unlimited data? Please? [TmoNews]

Galaxy S III sales expected to total 10 million by July

Samsung Galaxy S III sales expected to total 10 million by July

Korea’s golden goose is on track to drop its 10 millionth Galaxy S III by July, according to Samsung mobile head Shin Jong-kyun. The expectation comes despite limited supply, fueled by a component shortage at the smartphone giant. Regardless of this notable shortcoming, Samsung has wasted no time getting its latest handset to market, and expects to deliver the 4.8-inch Galaxy to some 300 carriers in 147 countries by the end of next month, including all of the major UK carriers, along with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon in the US. The sky-high figure is merely an estimate, however, so investors may want to stay tuned for the official announcement before uncorking the Dom. Full details are at the source link below.

[Thanks, Joseph]

Two-thirds of Americans unwilling to spend over $50 a month on mobile data, says Parks Associates

Two-thirds of Americans unwilling to spend over $50 a month on mobile data, says Parks Associates

In a recent report titled Mobile Data and Applications, research outfit Parks Associates found that a large chunk of Stateside consumers aren’t willing to pay more than $50 per month for a mobile data plan. What’s also interesting here — but not surprising — is the study shows nearly 50 percent of smartphone users are completely oblivious to the amount of data they’re consuming every month. Parks Associates says this highlights the “risk” networks like AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile are taking by making the transition from all-you-can-have to those tiered data plans we’re so fond of. The firm’s Mobile Research Director, Harry Wang, sees this as a necessity for carriers, though, expressing that “moving mobile users to usage-based plans will be difficult and painful, but changes are necessary for operators to maintain revenues.” So, are you part of the two-thirds keeping bits under 50 bucks? Let your voice be heard in the comments below.

CSIRO snatches $220m windfall in WiFi patent dispute with AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon

Australia's CSRIO snatches $220m windfall in WiFi patent dispute with AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon

Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization keeps bowling ’em over — in the courtroom, anyway — with its hardy WiFi patent. The government-funded research group has chalked up another $220 million win after AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Acer, Lenovo and Sony each agreed to establish licenses with the litigious group. CSIRO now holds agreements with 23 companies and has pocketed more than $430 million from its courtroom activities. Australian Senator Chris Evans estimates that 90 percent of the industry is now paying licensing fees for the technology, but with the patent set to expire next year, we’d be mighty paranoid to be among that final ten percent. You’ll find the full PR, chock-full of Aussie pride, after the break.
