They just keep adding. I do wonder how T-Mo can detect Binge On for Windows phones though.
It's a nice freebie, but I left TMO because of their reception issues and the ridiculous tax/fees. Cricket is much easier to manage. Having a 950XL with dual SIMs though, I may just ask a friend to let me on their plan for $10 just to use for Binge On - haha.
T-Mo is killing it. Will be switching when a decent W10 device is available with WiFi calling on their network next year. 95% of my data is used by streaming music.
I don't see "a decent device" going on TMO any time soon. I use the 950XL on TMO currently. I don't think MS is going to stray away from AT&T.
I've had a 650 for a week now and would consider an equivalent device, with WiFi calling, on T-Mo.
I have the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL. It's a budget device, but honestly, it runs pretty well for what it is and for what I paid for it ($140 phone, $20ish SIM). I think my SIM might be bad since Wi-Fi Calling goes in and out sometimes, I get duplicate texts, and settings regarding my caller ID don't save, so everyone sees my number as restricted. Other than loading times being a longer than I'd like for apps, the phone does a pretty great job with W10 Mobile.
The restricted number would be a problem for me.
Yeah, it gets obnoxious, but I'm going to T-Mobile to hopefully get a new SIM this weekend. At first I thought it just happened on Wi-Fi, but then it started on cellular too. I hope a new SIM will fix it.
I had the same problem with duplicate texts. Fixed it by turning Wi-Fi calling off. No more duplicates after that.
I'll have to try that. If it works, I wonder if it's because cellular and Wi-Fi are both sending the message, but don't coordinate properly when messages are sent/received.
And what exactly is the difference between Binge On and Facebooks failed Internet.org? Aren't they both favoring one content provider over another?
Internet.org was for poor people. Not acceptable.
Binge On is being paid for by all customers.
Who pays marketing?
Doesn't work on Windows Phone that goes for the app MyTube and their web page. T-Mobile lacks the Support.
Binge on is nothing more than a fancy way of saying they are throttling your speed. Your phone's platform wont matter because they look at where the data connection is going and throttle the speed. It impacts everyone and you have to opt out of this bs rather than opt in. Also...they don't tell you upfront but its only for plans 3gb and up. If you are on 2.5 or less, you wont get it, BUT..they will still throttle your connection. So you have to opt out which is really stupid
I don't think you understand how BingeOn works. You already have your data plan that includes throttling. T-Mobile offers these to offer a lower tier of service for low-usage customers, this should be obvious. INSTEAD OF charging more for exceeding data they just slow you down. Now for those people who happen to have kids or a long commute or bad wifi T-Mobile offers BingeOn which lets you watch video from all these sources without it impacting your plan. Some business degree would probably say it's BAD business because they're losing out on the revenue from people subscribing their higher priced unlimited plan. Not to mention that it's completely optional, and not exactly hard to get into from what reports say.
Rock that 480p video! v10
I do not see Xbox/Groove Music as a supported service! How come?
