T-Mobile’s plan to abolish annual contracts has been in talks for about a few months now. It’s no news that they finally made the latest rates public. When you sign up for T-Mobile, there are no subsidies on your next cell phone. You pay monthly incremental payments of $16/month or more depending on the type of smartphone you’re aiming to buy.
There are going to be complaints due to the fact the cell phones won’t exactly be “free”, but keep in mind these payment options are much cheaper in the long run. Note: You pay small payments to own the phone, and you have a plan with no contract. What more could you want? Prepaid owners pay for their device upfront. They don’t complain.Moving on
Already have a phone that works on T-Mobile’s network and want to avoid paying “phone payment plans”? Bring your device right over. It’s pretty simple. Data Plans
Found a phone and looking for data options? T-Mobile has you covered. If the promotional offer is still active, you can add a line free until 2014. The first data option, 500mb, offers you HSPA+/LTE speeds until you hit the threshold. Then it throttles to 2G speeds. That price is $80 for two lines.
However, selected unlimited everything gives you unlimited talk, text, and web with 500mb tethering/hotspot data for $120/month. That’s SUPER CHEAP. LSS
T-Mobile is doing something carriers should have done a long time ago and I think it’s pretty great.
What do you think about it?

With that being said, does anybody have any websites they want to share with me? I'm bored and cannot sleep. Only one's I know are:
Facebook (need to stop browsing that site)
Reddit (Full of crazy mofos)
My Opera (Activity has died down recently. Dunno why.)
And more. Got any fun content to share? Lemme know.

Earlier today I began to find a way to get Ubuntu connected to the Internet by using my phone, tablet, and my geek skills. For those who have me on my Facebook friends' list, you may have stumbled upon this:
Because of Mobile Stream not updating its Blackberry application after the trial ran out, I'm forced to use BlueVPN to create an Internet connection from my Blackberry to my Nexus 7. On top of that, I'm going to attempt to use Clockworkmod USB tethering app to get the Linux partition online. Unfortunately, Tether and PDANet won't allow me to create a Bluetooth DUN connection. The reason EasyTether worked because it created a Bluetooth PAN.
Will this be a pain in the ass to get it working? Correct! My lazy ass decided to skip most of the trouble and install EasyTether. (I cannot activate it on the tablet, so I have to use the light version which blocks secure connections.)
The steps go like this:
- Open PDANet on my BlackBerry, press button to connect via Bluetooth DUN.
- Go on my Nexus 7 and open BlueVPN.
- Pair phone to tablet.
- Go back to BlueVPN app, tap settings, find, and enter correct number to dial. (In this case it is #777.)
- Then select the phone and connect the tablet to the Internet.
- Open EasyTether and tap to enable USB tethering.
- Open terminal in Ubuntu > easytether connect > wait.
- Enjoy your complicated dual-tethered connection.
I only keep my BlackBerry because of BlackBerry Messenger. My other spare android phone is much simpler to set up a tethered connection. For that phone, I used WiFi Tether for Root Users
and set up the correct settings.To clarify, EasyTether for BlackBerry used Bluetooth PAN to attempt to connect to the Internet. The trial ran out and I've contacted the developer to either publish a paid version or a lite version to BlackBerry World.
I haven't heard a response from him/her.
