Hi all,Y’all know me as the Community Manager for this site and an employee of T-Mobile. I am also a mom, so I wanted to talk about something that has given me peace of mind when it comes to parenting with technology.Before I had my son, I always told people that my kids were not getting phones or tablets until they were older and needed it for school or something. When my son was born, he had the chance to play on his cousin’s tablets and before he was a year old, he could navigate the tablet and get to the videos and games he wanted. I knew that I needed to get him a tablet, but I was so worried about him clicking on something that he shouldn’t or buying a bunch of stuff in the app store.Samsung Kids Mode has been the biggest benefit on my son’s tablet! The Kids Mode setting is like a playpen. He only has access to the applications that I allow. If any of those apps have ads, he can tap on the ad, but it’s blocked so it doesn’t go anywhere or do anything. You have to use a code to ge
The best part of the holiday season is the sales! Whether it be shopping for others or treating yourself, it is never a bad thing to save a little money on your purchases. T-Mobile started a whole slew of savings on November 17th and didn’t stop there. New promotions are starting all the time, but they don’t last forever.Our Newsroom articles gave a pretty good list of what offers started for Black Friday so check those out.Holiday Deals at T‑Mobile: iPhone 14 Pro On Us, Half Off Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) with Apple TV+ Included ‑ T‑Mobile Newsroom (t-mobile.com)It’s No Powerball Jackpot… But T‑Mobile’s Holiday Offers Could Save up to $1000 ‑ T‑Mobile Newsroom (t-mobile.com)We won’t stop there so keep an eye on the T-Mobile website to see if the device you want goes on sale. I personally will be keeping an eye on the tablet deals. I gave my tablet to my son because he has been so great with it and now I have my eye on some of the higher tech options that are available now.What are you s
The OnePlus Nord N300 5G has been on the shelves for a couple weeks now. It has a thinner design than previous generations, a reasonable price tag, and totes some pretty cool features.As a mom, there are a few things that make all the difference when it comes to the devices I use regularly. Battery and camera are at the top of that list. The OnePlus Nord N300 5G has a 5000mAh battery and can get up to a day’s worth of power in about 30 minutes with the included charger. Less time sitting on the charger and more time in your hand taking pictures, looking up fun activities, or watching videos with your tiny humans. What’s not to love? A 48MP camera is pretty impressive and it has blur reduction of videos. I am definitely not the best at taking pictures and videos but features like that can make it way easier to capture those important moments with better quality. I appreciate devices that still have the SD card slot and the Nord N300 5G can support up to 1 TB SD card so you never have t

Texting has become such an important part of how we communicate nowadays. We can keep conversations going forever because we never have to "hang up" the phone. We can also share content easily by sending links or pictures. As time goes on, spam is starting to make its way into the texting world, and we can all feel the frustration when it affects us.Industry guidelines and T-Mobile policies are in place to try and block spam and unwanted messages from going through our network. Regular person-to-person (P2P) messages are sent through Spam filters to ensure that someone is not spending their days sending unwanted messages to any phone number they can get ahold of. Company messages sent to customers (A2P) should be sent through aggregators (companies that ensure that the messages being sent comply with the rules in place). Companies are not allowed to send out an excessive number of messages and they can only send messages if we opt-in to those messages first.As with anything else in lif
You may be asking yourself, “Why T-Mobile’s 5G?” That’s an easy answer we’ll cover here so you know how T-Mobile’s 5G benefits you. SPOILER ALERT: You may not know everything you think you know about what you can do with 5G. How does it work? The biggest advantage of T-Mobile’s 5G is speed. It works by using High, Mid, and Low band frequencies that have different uses. High-band frequencies give you super-fast speeds in small areas. Mid-band gives you a balance of speeds and distance over a broad area. Low-band waves improve your coverage in buildings so you can stay connected, even indoors. T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network covers over 90% of Americans allowing you to use it across the country. Capacity and range play a huge role in how you use your mobile device and T-Mobile continues to improve the coverage and enhance your experience. T-Mobile nationwide 5G gives you 2X the speeds you get with our LTE and we’re rolling out speeds as fast as Wi-Fi to millions of customers in hundred

I don’t know about you, but I have completely gotten rid of regular cable service and switched over to streaming services almost exclusively. (I say almost because who doesn’t love going to a movie theater once in a while?) With all of the streaming services available, there is a way to watch just about anything nowadays. I love that T-Mobile partners with so many of the streaming companies and guess what! Another one is coming to our lineup!ViX+ is a streaming service that offers over 10,000 hours of Spanish-speaking content including news, sports, and original series, along with so much more. I'm looking to learn Spanish and I want to sign up because I've been told that watching Spanish TV is a great first step to getting used to the language. PLUS starting August 11th T-Mobile is offering a ViX+ ON US deal, so if I have the right plan why not get it for free and try it out?Limited-time offer; subject to change. Register for code and then redeem within 30 days. Qualifying service and

The air is full of the scent of freshly cracked textbooks and pencil shavings, and the level of excitement for the first day of school is rivaled only by the excitement for the last day of school. Or maybe field trip day -- who doesn't love a field trip? Here in the Support Community, we're full of back-to-school spirit, and it's not just because of the awesome deals and exciting new devices always popping up this this time of year! Maybe it's because T-Mobile's Changemaker Challenge is ramping up, and we're getting stoked about being inspired by young people. Maybe it's because we watched our stellar @T-Mobile team #ClearTheLists for a few dozen teachers last week. Maybe we're just really over the heat? Whatever the reason, we love this season, and we want to share that love with you -- so please share your best school memories with us! It doesn’t necessarily have to be a "Back to School" memory – we're looking for any memory related to school. If you’re a parent, tell us who cried mo
No sé tú, pero yo cancelé completamente el servicio de cable tradicional y me cambié a los servicios de streaming casi que por completo (digo casi porque ¿a quién no le gusta ir al cine de vez en cuando?). Con todos los servicios de streaming que hay disponibles hoy en día, prácticamente se puede ver cualquier cosa. Me encanta que T-Mobile esté colaborando con tantos servicios de streaming; y adivina qué... ¡Pronto se sumará uno más a la lista!ViX+ es un servicio de streaming que ofrece más de 10,000 horas de contenido en español como noticias, deportes, series originales y mucho más. Quiero ver más contenido en español y me gustaría inscribirme porque ningún otro servicio tiene un catálogo que se compare al de ViX+. ADEMÁS, a partir del 11 de agosto de 2022, T-Mobile ofrecerá una oferta de ViX+ POR CUENTA NUESTRA; así que, si tengo el plan adecuado, ¿por qué no aprovechar la oferta gratis y probar el servicio?Oferta por tiempo limitado; sujeta a cambio.
