Quick Navigation

What is T-Mobile?

Do you think of the five-note audio logo when you hear the name “T-Mobile?” The logo was composed in 1999, but T-Mobile has been around for a lot longer. Its holding company is a German telecommunications company that bought VoiceStream Wireless Corporation in 2001.

VoiceStream was renamed to T-Mobile and today is the third largest wireless network in the country. J.D. Power and Associates, which performs customer service surveys, consistently ranks T- Mobile for high levels of retail-store satisfaction and wireless customer care.

This image is generally born out in conversations with T-Mobile customers, who seem to be overall more satisfied with their carrier than customers at At&T or other major carriers. In 2013, T-Mobile purchased MetroPCS Communication and in 2018 announced plans to merge with Sprint.

What Does T-Mobile Offer?

In 2016, T-Mobile introduced its T-Mobile ONE plans. Instead of choosing between complicated offers that skip or include things like texting or large or small amounts of data, T-Mobile included everything in one easy-to-understand plan they call ONE. Currently, T-Mobile lines start at $70 and include benefits like the following:

  • Free Netflix plans
  • Free phones (depending on the offers available at the time of signup)
  • Unlimited talk, text, and data
  • Easy to read bills (fees and taxes included in the advertised price)

Monthly plans drop to as low as $35/month on four lines, and T-Mobile allows you to skip the wait at your local retail store by making an appointment online. This is a helpful feature, especially if your time is limited and you’re only available during peak business hours.

What is a T-Mobile Account?

T-Mobile allows you to pay your bill, see relevant notifications, address problems you’re having with your device, and check your usage, and more through an app called My Account. You can download the app directly to your phone or go to T-Mobile’s website to log in through the online interface here.

Here’s what you can do with T-Mobile My Account:

  • Get device health notifications
  • View data usage for yourself and your family lines
  • Set up recurring payments via AutoPay
  • Initiate account notifications
  • Refill your pay-in-advance accounts

Once your device has received a text from T-Mobile, you can enter the verification code into your app, which will then guide you through the rest of the process for setting up your T-Mobile ID and registering your device.
