It goes without saying that mobile users are easy and vulnerable targets for scammers. As a matter of fact, Truecaller found a couple of years ago that 74 percent of consumers who had lost money because of scams are claiming that it happened on their phones. Recognizing the growth threat of scammer fraud, the third biggest wireless carrier in America has decided to do something about it.
Because of a “ghost call” glitch in the emergency call system in the city of Dallas in the state of Texas, a couple of deaths may have resulted. The first death is a 6 month old baby named Brandon Alex whose babysitter using a T-Mobile device could not successfully reach 911 dispatchers. The other one involves a 52 year old man named Brian Cross, whose husband, David Taffet, tried to call 911 but was put on hold for 20 minutes earlier this month. Cross later passed away at a local hospital.
Last week, it has been reported that T-Mobile was selling some of its flagship smartphone devices at a blowout sale price. This move was largely speculated as a way for the carrier to clear out their shelves in time for the release of new smartphone models. In recent developments, it looks like this could actually be happening.
T-Mobile has apparently decided to increase the monthly data cap on its unlimited plan by a couple of extra gigabytes. Thus, the 28 gigabyte data allotment each month has now been bumped to 30 gigabytes.
It was only a matter of time actually, and now it really is happening -- the unlimited wars are now on prepaid, thanks to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. T-Mobile and Sprint, of course, fired the first shots back in August of last year when they launched their respective unlimited data options, effectively igniting a war over who has got the better unlimited offering.
Effective this coming March 1st, T-Mobile is offering a trio of lines of service of unlimited data for just a hundred bucks. Specifically, any existing or new subscriber under a T-Mobile One or Simple Choice plan with at least a couple of voice lines will now be able to add an extra line of service, absolutely free of charge.
Mobile virtual network operator ROK Mobile may have found a way to effectively marry wireless plans with life insurance. Over the past years, the MVNO (using the LTE networks of T-Mobile and Sprint) has built quite a reputation for combining the perks of a mobile plan with a music streaming service.
Quickly countering the latest announcement from Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile has revealed that it is now adding HD video to its unlimited plan. Specifically, the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States has added HD video and 10 gigabytes of high speed hotspot data to its T-Mobile One unlimited plan, which normally costs $70 per month.
