T-Mobile just launched their newest "Uncarrier 10 Initiative". They are doing what they did for "Music Freedom". There are about 2 dozen streaming video providers that T-Mobile will be allowing to stream videos without counting against your data allocation. About the only two providers that I can see that were not included were FaceBook's videos and YouTube. It will require being on a new TM "Simple Choice Amped" plan with minimum of 3GB of data.
The other positive development is T-Mobile doubled the amount of data they offer on most plans. On their $50 basic 1GB plan, that now offers 2GB. Their 3GB plan just doubled to 6GB but went up in price to $65 per month. Their 5GB plan is now 10GB but also increased from $70 to $80 per month.
Not surprisingly, T-Mobile quietly increased the cost of their Unlimited plan from $80 to $95 per month. The only consolation was previously, they only offered 7GB of Personal Hotspot service. With the newer $95 Unlimited Data Plan, users will now get 14GB of personal Hotspot service which means no longer having to rely on non-secure public wifi networks.

Apple’s iOS 9 “Black Screen of Death” can easily be cured. If your device just goes off like the battery is dead and you know it isn’t, try this. Hold down the power and the SIRI (Home) button for about 20 seconds. Your device should come back alive. We have been getting many reports of this problem and hope Apple is working on a software patch/upgrade.
Ad Donald Trump would say, this is going to be Huge! The nation’s third-largest wireless carrier is looking to gain competitive advantage over rivals Sprint, AT&T and Verizon by giving its customers the ability to stream videos on their smartphones and tablets without generating data charges. Subscribers can choose among popular streaming services including Netflix, HBO Now, HBO Go, Watch ESPN, Fox Sports and Hulu.
Notable omissions from the list include YouTube, the world’s biggest video site, and Facebook and Snapchat, both of which have made big pushes into video in the last year. “Video streams free,” T-Mobile CEO John Legere said Tuesday. “Binge on. Start watching your shows, stop watching your data.” Legere’s offer applies to customers who pay for at least 3 GB of data a month.
