T-Mobile announced earlier this week that will start offering a splendid little plan. The International Pass is something other carriers don’t currently offer but will surely become available for Sprint subscribers once the upcoming T-Mobile merger is complete.

T-Mobile is the latest carrier to announce a parental control service. FamilyMode was introduced this morning and is a brand new service that costs $10 per month on top of your wireless bill.

Seemingly out of nowhere, the Wall Street Journal put out a report this week regarding the T-Mobile and Sprint merger possibility. We thought merger talks had died for good a few months ago, but here we go again.
A new report has come in from T-Mobile’s parent, Deutsche Telekom. The German company is looking into a bloatware opt-in program for smartphones. You read that correctly.
