Since John Legere took over as CEO of the floundering T-Mobile in 2012, incredible strides have been made in resurrecting the magenta mobile carrier. Unless you live under a rock or don’t really pay attention to tech news, you probably have heard of the widely discussed “Un-carrier” campaign launched by Legere that has breathed new life into T-Mobile and jumpstarted new life into the mobile industry by prompting other mobile carriers to change their policies in response to their caped crusading competitor.

Just how successful has the Un-carrier campaign been for T-Mobile? Well Q2 2015 reports are in and the answer is outstanding.

T-Mobile has reported a 14% revenue growth and 25% adjusted EBITDA since last year’s Q2 2014. Additionally, the carrier reports that for the 9th consecutive quarter, T-Mobile has acquired over 1 million new net customer additions (2.1 million this quarter to be precise).

“While the carriers continue to use gimmicks to confuse consumers, T-Mobile continues to listen to customers and respond with moves that blow them away,” Legere had to say in the company press release. “On top of adding 2.1 million new customers in the second quarter, we delivered 14% year-over-year revenue growth and 25% year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA growth. Overall, I think our results speak for themselves.”

This growth means that T-Mobile now has a total of 58.9 million customers.

Moto X Pure Edition Does Indeed Work on All US Carriers, Including Verizon

Posted by Kellex July - 28 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

During today’s live press event from Motorola, the company announced that its new Moto X Pure Edition was an unlocked phone that worked on all of the major US carriers, including Verizon. People were excited at the thought of buying a phone for $399 that could be taken to any carrier of choice. That excitement died quickly, though, when Motorola posted official specs for the phone and left out any mention of Verizon’s CDMA bands or its LTE band 13. 

As it turns out, that was a mistake on their part. The specs have now been updated to include all supported bands. We included them below, but you can see for yourself at Motorola’s site and our official specs list.

Moto X Pure Edition wireless bands:

  • UMTS GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
  • UMTS/HSPA+ (800, 850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz)
  • 4G LTE (B1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 20, 25, 28, 40, 41)
  • CDMA (800, 850, 1900 MHz)

Safe rooting now available for international, T-Mobile, Verizon LG G4

Posted by wicked July - 27 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

For those who own LG’s latest flagship – the LG G4 – and have that itch to gain root access, it has seemed like a long wait. But the waiting is about to stop right the heck now for a lot of you, thanks to the efforts of some good people from XDA. Ladies and gents, a safe rooting option is now available for T-Mobile and Verizon LG-G4s, as well as the international version.

This rooting option is brought to you by the team of developers from XDA, namely, “thecubed”, “autoprime”, “IllegalArgument” and “jcase”. To be transparent, this team had already achieved root to the said handset around June, just that the method of achieving root access was deemed unsafe for the general public. But that is exactly what has happened now, a safe option is now available, specifically for the T-Mobile H811 10H version, the Verizon VS986 11A version and the International H815 10c variants of the LG G4.

This is called the “Low Effort Root” tool, and basically involves flashing a pre-rooted system image into your LG G4. That will call for the user downloading a system image file around 1.5GB in size. It’s a pretty hefty download, to be sure, but probably worth it for those who want root access.

The developers have specified exactly how this process is to be done, so check out the official thread for complete instructions. Also, a TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) custom recovery has already been made available for T-Mobile, care of XDA as well – you can check out the official thread for that tool. As with any tweaking we feature, we warn you that this process can result in your smartphone getting bricked, so tread carefully. Make your backups, if available, and follow the instructions to the letter.

Android 5.1 Lollipop now rolling out to the T-Mobile HTC One M9

htc-one-m9-92

If you’ve been waiting for the update to Android 5.1 Lollipop to make its way to your HTC One M9 on T-Mobile, your wait is almost up. Starting today, T-Mobile is rolling out Android 5.1 to One M9 handsets on its network, bringing the software version number up to 2.7.531.6.

The update brings some notable battery improvements to the device, and will also make Google Wallet a pre-installed application from here on out. The One M9 is also receiving a new “Anti-theft” feature, according to the carrier, which Google refers to as factory reset protection in its Android 5.1 changelog. The T-Mobile One M9 already received the big camera-improving update that began rolling out a few months ago, so there likely won’t be many big improvements on this front with the new update.

This update, which comes in at a hefty 833MB download, is now rolling out to all devices. It might take a few days to make its way to your handset. If you’d like to check manually, head over to your Settings menu, then choose the About tab, and finally check for your update from there.

The software update contains Android 5.1, Google Wallet, anti-theft protection, and battery improvements. All of those items except the new anti-theft protection sound familiar. The One M9 will now prevent unauthorized factory resetting from going through. Users need to have a screen lock and Google account on the device for it to be activated automatically.

T-Mobile’s build number for this software update is 2.7.531.6.

T-Mobile’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge get minor software update with improved battery life

Posted by wicked July - 27 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

Samsung_Galaxy_S6_Edge_Front_Top_Samsung_Logo_TAT-Mobile’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are both receiving a minor software update that brings some performance tweaks and battery improvements. No new features or other software, unfortunately, but with battery life being one of the top complaints about the S6 and its curved counterpart, any extra juice Samsung can squeeze out of it through software optimization is welcome.

If you own either variant of the S6 on T-Mobile, you should expect the OTA update to hit your phone soon.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Get Updates With Battery Improvements

Posted by Kellex July - 27 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

T-Mobile is pushing updates to its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge variants this morning, both of which appear to be bug fixers after the 5.1.1 update that arrived a couple of weeks back. And actually, each is listed as including “battery improvements” along with other various fixes. The S6 Edge is also getting a “cocktailbar error fix.” 

The S6 Edge update is rolling out as version G925TUVU2COF8. The regular S6 is G920TUVU2COF8. Each update weighs in at around 103MB if coming from the previous 5.1.1 build. If you didn’t take that last 5.1.1 build, your update will be north of 635MB in size.

(Here’s to hoping this includes some sort of performance enhancement too.)

To grab the update, head into Settings>About phone>Software update.

Root now available for LG G4 carrier models

Posted by wicked July - 26 - 2015 - Sunday Comments Off

lg-g4-problems-fixes-1

One of the benefits to having an Android phone is the ability to customise any number of settings and features once you’ve performed a root, which is akin to jailbreaking which iPhone users may be accustomed to. Rooting relies on an unlocked bootloader and while a root was achieved for the unlocked version of the LG G4, the carrier branded models have so far had to wait.

If you’ve been waiting then you’re in luck as root is now available for carrier branded models of the LG G4, both for the major US carrier devices (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon) and other international carriers. Recognised developer thecubed and others have built the “Low Effort Root” for carrier branded models but this is definitely not for the fainthearted; if you’re a novice and think bootloader is something related to your car, then this is definitely not for you.

LG G4 in video:

As with all mods, you’ll need to be able to precisely follow a long list of steps and you’ll need to download and install tools for your computer to get the job done. Like most Android customisations, you may end up with a bricked device that cannot be recovered so don’t tempt this unless you’re happy with the risk!

To root your carrier branded LG G4, head over to XDA Developers (in the source link below), read through all the posts and ask about anything you’re unsure of before you attempt anything. Back up all your data and take your time; there’s nothing worse than rushing and ending up with a bricked phone.

Kyocera Hydro WAVE is their newest waterproof 4G LTE smartphone

Posted by wicked July - 23 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

If you’re the type of person who would constantly drop their smartphone, or even worse, drop it on a wet surface, then you probably stay away from expensive devices, unless you’re rich enough to be constantly changing your phone. Kyocera is a brand that has been producing devices for those who need a more rough and tumble smartphone, and the latest one they’re releasing, the Hydro WAVE, brings you features you’ve come to appreciate from their sturdy gadgets, at an affordable price.

The WAVE has an IPX5 dustproof certification, and even better, an IPX7 certification, which means it can survive an “unexpected shower” as well as water immersion for up to 30 minutes in up to 1 meter of water. And even if the touchscreen is still wet, it will still be functional. And if you oftentimes drop your smartphone, this one is tougher than the average devices, as it has Military Standard 810G certification for shocks and drops.

The 5-inch smartphone runs on a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 1.2GHz Quad-Core CPU and comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. It has 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD slot that can carry up to 32GB extra storage. It has a 5MP main camera that can take videos at 720p HD. It also has a “Core Home” user interface, which is an option for those who prefer the simplified UI of feature phones.

The suggested retail price of the Kyocera Hydro WAVE is at $149.99. It will be available at participating T-Mobile outlets by July 22. Then by July 27, you can buy it through MetroPCS stores nationwide.
