T-Mobile: Un-carrier with somewhat better prices

Posted by & filed under Technology.

Looks like T-Mobile’s new “uncarrier” plans are now live. And it’s a good thing. Kinda. First, the good part: – no more contract. If you want a “discounted” phone, you have to just finance it, and add to monthly payments. This was always the worst possible aspect of US cell phone service — you used […]
