How to use Wi-Fi calling with iOS 8

Wi-Fi calling is a new feature of iOS 8 that's available initially to T-Mobile customers in the United States and EE customers in the U.K. What's more, it's coming to other carriers in the coming months. It lets your iPhone make and receive calls using Wi-Fi instead of depending on your carrier's cell tower coverage. Here's how it works.

From 2G to 4G: How to make sure you get the T-Mobile iPhone 5 performance you deserve!

After its failed merger with AT&T, it seemed that T-Mobile was doomed. But the company has come roaring back with a 4G network buildout, game-changing contract deals for its customers, and an agressive marketing campaign. I decided to switch to T-Mobile when I got my iPhone 5, but I ran into a few roadblocks that finally got sorted this past weekend.

T-Mobile getting more AWS spectrum, but will they get the iPhone?

AllThingsD was able to sit down with T-Mobile CEO Philipp Humm, who offered insight into why the carrier hasn't yet come to a deal with Apple to officially carry the iPhone on their network.

Spectrum reallocation enables unlocked iPhone to use T-Mobile 3G in a a few locations

TmoNews is reporting that some unlocked iPhone users may be picking up T-Mobile's 3G network in small areas of the Pacific Northwest -- specifically limited pockets in Nevada, Utah and California -- due to spectrum reallocation under the 1900MHz band.

Most unlocked iPhone users are relegated to 2G due to most of the T-Mobile 3G network running on the AWS spectrum of 1700MHz/2100MHz. We're not exactly sure what they're reallocating the spectrum for, however, multiple reports have surfaced from Howard Forums detailing a jump in speeds and, more specifically, the 3G network indicator popping up in the statusbar on their unlocked iPhone.
