Mobile will sell more than 100 smartphone models with a built-in feature that taps into Wi-Fi networks to make phone calls and send texts when customers can't connect to the wireless carrier's cellular network. The program announced Wednesday represents T-Mobile's latest attempt to lure wireless subscribers away from three larger rivals, Verizon Wireless, AT&T Corp. and Sprint Corp. Over the past 18 months, T-Mobile has shaken up the industry by replacing two-year contract commitments with monthly installment plans to pay for smartphones and lowering the cost to upgrade device and stream digital music.

AT&T: A Bullish Algorithmic Perspective

AT&T, despite being the second-largest wireless telecommunications provider in the U.S., has recently been regarded as a problematic stock, because of high competition in telecommunications and T's lower-than-estimated revenues. Recent developments - including new mobile plans and phones, network expansion, novel technologies, and increased subscriber counts - make success foreseeable for T, especially when coupled with its steady dividend.

Will Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon End Subsidized Phones?

AT&T to Launch WiFi Calling in 2015

AT&T plans to start offering WiFi calling in 2015, but the carrier isn't as gung-ho about bringing voice over WiFi as its competitors, despite its huge footprint of unlicensed spectrum. AT&T Inc. was the early market leader in WiFi in the US, and it easily maintains the biggest footprint of access points amongst all the carriers here, but Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO of AT&T's new Mobile and Business Solutions group, doesn't see an urgent need to offer WiFi calling capabilities.
