T-Mobile CTO: Rival Unlimited Plans Are Stifling Data Speeds

Android

T-Mobile’s CTO, Neville Ray, says the rival unlimited plans from networks Verizon and AT&T are stifling the data speeds of those companies, and is likely a result of the lift that both wireless carriers were seeing due to the changes made to the unlimited plans that are now being offered to subscribers. Ray’s comments aren’t completely unfounded as it’s reported that both Verizon and AT&T saw a decrease in Mbps speeds on their networks during the second quarter, though this doesn’t necessarily mean that the cause of this decrease is the unlimited plans changes made by each carrier. It does, however, suggest that is the case.

According to Ray, Q…

Latest Galaxy S8 Update On T-Mobile Blocks Bixby Remapping

Android

The latest Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ update on T-Mobile seems to be blocking Bixby remapping applications, essentially disabling any possibility to make the Bixby button do mostly whatever you want it to do. For some this won’t be an issue but for other users it could certainly pose a problem, or at the very least an annoyance if they’ve been used to using these types of apps to more or less unlock the Bixby button’s potential.

This is reportedly only an issue with T-Mobile models of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, at least for now, as there doesn’t seem to be complaints from users or developers of these types of apps in regards to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ …

T-Mobile Says Nougat To Land On Galaxy S6/S6 Edge This Week

Android

T-Mobile says Android Nougat should land on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge sometime this week as its product manager and avid Twitter user Des recently tweeted that T-Mobile has now approved the software update for both versions of the phone today, and that the software update is nearby. No exact date was highlighted, so the software could start hitting devices as early as sometime this evening, which means that users with either phone on the T-Mobile network who are waiting for the Nougat software may want to periodically check for the software update manually if they haven’t seen it come through yet.

Any users who don’t see the update come through over-the-air t…

Entry-Level Alcatel A30 Tablet May Launch On T-Mobile In May

Android

Alcatel is reportedly planning to launch an all-new entry-level tablet called the Alcatel A30. The company already sells a budget smartphone by the same name, and that one’s currently available exclusively on Amazon for just $ 59.99. As for the upcoming tablet, detailed hardware specifications of the device are still officially under wraps, but a report recently published by TechnoBuffalo seems to suggest that it will ship with fairly modest hardware that should help the company price the device attractively. It’s worth noting here that Alcatel had released a budget tablet on T-Mobile last year that was priced at just $ 130, so it will be interesting to see if the upcoming device wi…
