T-Mobile newest promotion provides free Netflix to all T-Mobile One unlimited customers with two or more lines on their account. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an existing T-Mobile or Netflix customer or not — either way, you can get in on the deal. Signing up couldn’t be easier, so follow this guide and you’ll get to binge-watching in no time.

#UncarrierNEXT: T-Mobile Now Includes Netflix On Us

For current Netflix subscribers

On or before September 12, the carrier will make a URL available where subscribers of both Netflix and T-Mobile can link their accounts together. T-Mobile will then take over paying your Netflix bill, so you don’t have to do anything. However, it may take up to two billing cycles before payment transfers over.

For new Netflix subscribers

Once you’ve signed up for a qualifying T-Mobile One plan, you’ll receive a text to a page that will instruct you how to create a Netflix account connected to T-Mobile. You won’t have to arrange to pay for the monthly subscription — T-Mobile will handle that for you.

What kind of subscription is it?

You’ll get one Standard Netflix subscription, which runs $10 per month. You can stream content in HD, and you can watch Netflix on two different screens at the same time. To put that in perspective, Netflix’s Basic streaming package costs $8, doesn’t include HD streaming, and limits you to watching on only one screen at a time. The Premium tier costs $12, bumps simultaneous streaming up to four devices, and includes 4K content.

What if you want Premium?

If you want to upgrade to the higher package, T-Mobile will continue paying Netflix the full $12 every month, but you’ll pay the difference between the Standard and Premium rates to T-Mobile. That’s $2 currently, and it’ll be tacked onto your monthly T-Mobile bill.

How long does it last?

Interestingly, nowhere in T-Mobile’s announcement or the FAQ section of its site does it say that this is a limited-time deal, or constrained to a year for every customer. It would seem the carrier is prepared to extend this offer to its subscribers indefinitely. As always, we’ll let you know if that changes.

What else should I know?

Again, this offer is only available to T-Mobile One customers with two or more active lines. If you recently joined T-Mobile through one of its recent “line-on-us” promotions, it seems you’ll have to forgo your current rate to qualify for the deal, as the carrier is encouraging these customers to switch to “the latest T-Mobile One plan” if they want to save on Netflix.

You should also note that streaming quality on the basic One plan prevents streaming at full HD resolution — to do that, you’ll need to upgrade to the One Plus plan, which runs an extra $10 per month per line. This is only the case when you stream via 4G LTE on your mobile phone. The web version is unaffected, regardless of your Internet Service Provider. As always, you’ll be able to download movies and TV shows at full quality if you wish, which is one potential way to sidestep the streaming cap.

Does the OnePlus 10T have wireless charging? What you need to know
The side of the OnePlus 10T showing the power key.

OnePlus has launched the OnePlus 10T, marking the return of its T-series lineup after last year’s hiatus. While the new midrange smartphone offers some impressive specs, there’s one crucial thing you may want to keep in mind about the OnePlus 10T before you rush out and hit the buy button.

Although wireless charging is arguably table stakes on midrange and premium smartphones in 2022, the OnePlus 10T is a surprising exception to this rule. Like its predecessor, the 2020 OnePlus 8T, this latest T series smartphone lacks any form of wireless charging.

T-Mobile’s 5G network just beat Verizon and AT&T (again)
T-Mobile smartphone.

T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T always claim to be America's best 5G network in their commercials. T-Mobile boasts this even more so, and as it turns out, it's true. During PCMag's annual Best Mobile Network test (previously known as the Fastest Mobile Network test), T-Mobile won over Verizon and AT&T as the Best Mobile Network for the second year in a row.

PCMag gave T-Mobile the title after testers drove 10,000 miles across the country to measure its performance against Verizon and AT&T. The test involved driving to 30 cities and six rural regions to test each mobile carrier's reliability using Samsung Galaxy S22+ smartphones. As expected, T-Mobile won that contest in 18 cities out of 30, followed by Verizon with eight and AT&T with four.

T-Mobile just achieved 3Gbps 5G speeds — without mmWave
Speedtest results on a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

T-Mobile is setting out to prove that carriers don’t need to deploy extremely high-frequency mmWave technology to get blazing fast speeds. Thanks to Carrier Aggregation technology, the “Un-carrier” has demonstrated performance of 3Gbps download speeds on good old-fashioned low-band and mid-band 5G channels.

In a press release today, T-Mobile revealed that it has reached these unprecedented speeds for the first time ever on a commercial device; in this case, a Samsung Galaxy S22 powered by a Snapdragon X65 modem. “This test demonstrates the incredible power of mid-band spectrum and represents another huge step forward for stand-alone 5G,” said Neville Ray, President of Technology at T-Mobile.
