T-Mobile today announced a new partnership with Univision to launch the creatively titled Univsion Mobile, a new wireless service built for Hispanic Americans. The US carrier has analyzed smartphone usage by the demographic to conclude they rely on mobile devices more heavily than average. Strangely enough, Verizon launched a similar service, Viva Movil, last year with Jeniffer Lopez heading up the Latino-focused experience.

T-Mobile US has published its Q1 2014 report. The company has reported its best ever quarterly performance in branded postpard net customer additions. A total net of 2.4 million customers were added, including over 1.3 million branded postpaid net customers. This report marks the first quarter the carrier has had with more than 2 million net customers added to plans. It's a stark contrast to Sprint, which is still experiencing issues upgrading its network while maintaining its customer base.

T-Mobile has finally closed a deal to acquire highly-valuable 700MHz spectrum from Verizon, enabling the next wave of network upgrades for the carrier. In the wireless world not all spectrum is created equal, with lower frequencies being more desirable because they travel further distances and better penetrate buildings. Both of these attributes are badly needed on T-Mobile's network as it traditionally operates on much higher frequencies between 1700 and 2100MHz, and T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray has a good idea of what they will do with it.

The Lumia 1520 now holds my record for longest used Windows Phone, previously held by my Lumia 920. There’s just something about the raw horsepower of a quad-core 2.2 GHz CPU and that 1080P six inch display that makes it hard to resist.  Sure, it’s big, but it’s also awesome.

Unfortunately, for those on T-Mobile in the US, the Lumia 1520 is but a pipe dream. That is until the Lumia 1520.3 (RM-938) hit third party retailers. In a very lengthy thread in our forums, this version of the Lumia 1520 has been confirmed to have the necessary AWS bands for T-Mobile, as well as reportedly getting AT&T LTE, as well. That is in addition to having 32 GB, of internal storage and Qi wireless charging. It’s the Holy Grail for those yearning for a Lumia 1520, but who reside in the States.

That’s the good news. The bad news is twofold.

After introducing a $40 base plan and then doing away with extra charges for cellular tablets and giving them a free gigabyte of data, T-Mobile is at it again by doing with overage fees. The elimination of domestic overage fees hits all T-Mobile plans. T-Mobile CEO John Legere called out his competition, pointing out that overage fees amount to $1 billion in extra payments from consumers every year.

Yesterday T-Mobile introduced a new Simple Starter plan that could get you in the cellular door at $40/month, and today they're shaking things up again by reducing the price of their cellular-enabled tablets to match that of their Wi-Fi-only siblings. Additionally, T-Mobile customers that activate a new tablet will get 1.2GB of free LTE data through the end of 2014.

The plans are set to be available starting on April 12, and customers will be able to take advantage of T-Mobile's pay-your-old-carrier's ETF deal, purchase phones on installment plans, and enroll T-Mobile's Jump! upgrade plan.

Following tightly on the heels of Windows Phone 8.1 and new hardware from Nokia, T-Mobile and AT&T have both announced they will carry the Lumia 635. T-Mobile is trumpeting the availability of the Lumia 635 on its network as a solid step from the Lumia 521, which it saw massive success with, while AT&T sees this as one more device in a long line of Windows Phones it carries.

Tomorrow might be April 1st, but T-Mobile's not joking around with their latest move: they're scrapping employer rate plans discounts. Gone is the supposed complexity that came with wondering what kind of discount you might get with your Simple Choice plan based on where you work, replaced instead with a T-Mobile gift card worth $25 when your purchase a new device… based on where you work. It's simpler than trying to figure out if it's 15% or 5% or 2.8% that you'll get off of your bill.

It was two days ago that we finally saw a sign that the Lumia Black firmware update would be out soon for T-Mobile’s Lumia 521. On Nokia’s support website the status of the update went from ‘waiting for approval’ to ‘coming soon’. It still listed as coming soon on Nokia’s support page, but we’re getting a number of tips that Lumia Black has begun its over-the-air rollout for the Lumia 521.

In January Nokia stated that the Lumia Black firmware update would be available to all in the coming weeks after its initial rollout. That didn’t exactly happen, as we’re still seeing certain regions and handsets lighting up with Lumia Black. For example, just yesterday the Lumia 620 in India received the firmware update. One little handset here in the United States still doesn’t have it. That’d be the Lumia 521, a variant of the Lumia 520 exclusive to T-Mobile. We haven’t heard much about the status of the update, but we do know it’s now listed as ‘coming soon’ on Nokia’s website.

The old adage goes that you have to spend money to make money, and that's exactly what T-Mobile's been doing. Today the fourth-place US carrier reported their Q4 2013 earnings and the results were mixed. While they added 1.65 million new customers — good for the long haul — the hyper-aggressive marketing and incentives resulted in a quarterly loss of $20 million. Granted, that's on revenue of $6.8 billion for the quarter, an increase of 39% from this time last year. But a loss is a loss.

Still waiting for the Lumia Black firmware update for your Nokia Lumia 925 on T-Mobile? You’re not alone. I’ve recently switched back to the Lumia 925 as my daily and only bust out the Lumia 1020 for when I know I’ll be taking a ton of pictures. The Lumia 925 isn’t just one of the most elegant Windows Phone devices, it’s one of the most elegant smartphones period. Thankfully you and I won’t have to wait too much longer for the Lumia Black update. It should be out pretty soon.

New AdDuplex data shows the Lumia 625 following the Lumia 520's growth with both Windows Phones taking Europe. Windows Phone is also shown to have had a rather successful Q4 2013.

AdDuplex, one of the largest advertising providers for both Windows and Windows Phone, has released data for the month of January. As is the case with each report we cover, the company has analysed usage from supported apps running the SDK to see how Windows Phone has altered, compared to previous months.

There were reports that Nokia failed to sell as many Lumia Windows Phones in Q4 2013 as the company did in Q3, but the ad provider recently released data to show that Windows Phone as a platform performed well through the fourth quarter.

Head past the break to see how the platform looks in the first month of 2014, including some new, unannounced hardware.
