T-Mobile’s Uncarrier 6.0 is Music Freedom: gives you unlimited data for music streaming from Spotify, Pandora, and more

T-Mobile Music Freedom 1

At the Uncarrier 5.0 event, John Legere threw everyone for a loop after jumping on a pair of turntables and announcing Uncarrier 6.0: Music Freedom. With T-Mobile’s Music Freedom, T-Mobile will allow customers to stream unlimited music using the top “streaming services” — composing of 85% of music streaming on their network — all for free.

T-Mobile Music Freedom voting

While the top services are included, many of you will notice that Google Play Music was left out. Don’t freak out. T-Mobile mentions they’ll be expanding Music Freedom to include more services in the future, even allowing customers to vote for their favorite to jump to the top of the list. Music Freedom goes live on June 19th and you can learn more about it by going here.

    I am glad Slacker was mentioned I prefer it over Pandora personally. I have a much better experience with Slacker of Pandora personally.

    • scoter man1

      Yeah, I’m sure the 4 people still using Pandora were elated that they were included.

      Any idea if this is for postpaid only or does it apply to prepaid also?

      • Montisaquadeis

        With what they described doing aka Whitelisting the URL it sounds like it would apply to both on T-Mobile IAN

  • Mark Wheeler

    This is awesome and I totally didn’t see uncarrier 6 coming immediately after. Was anyone else watching the webcast and have their jaw drop during that? Lol

  • Brian Menius

    Oh. Snap.

  • Crickerman

    Damn, this is what I use most of my data on (spotify) Kudos T-Mobile, you really don’t ever want me to leave do you?

  • V2THE1

    Why are you all always Sugar Coating everything? It makes me mad that Google All Access isn’t supported.

    • http://ENERDROID.COM IAN

      But it is supported? It’s on the list of services. Just not Google play music.

      • Hack

        No, Google Play Music is not supported at this time. It is one of the three that I use that are not on the supported list, GPAA, Rdio and Songza. Off to TMo to suggest they add those three.

        • http://ENERDROID.COM IAN

          What??? That’s what I just said. “just NOT Google play music”. The previous comment mentioned Google all access. That is on the supported list.

    • Hack

      Just go to the site (the link is in one of the other articles) and request it be added to the list, instead of getting mad and venting to people who can’t do anything about it.

      • V2THE1

        Are you some type of goofy or something? This is the comments section for this article on this website. This is where we express our feeling about the articles that have been written. If I write “wow this is awesome I hope ‘said company’ does more like this”, will the writer’s here be able to make “said company” do even more like the positive feedback I just delivered here? No! So if you can’t take the bad with the good you need to beat it Hack.

  • PoisonApple31

    How about actually improving your network T-Mobile? Gaping holes of Edge all over the place. Sprint is better than T-Mobile in my state!

    • J Cav the Great

      man, fu¢k you. Just don’t get T-Mobile. stop trolling….

      • PoisonApple31

        Fu¢k you! If you don’t like my comment ignore it.

    • Montisaquadeis

      Agreed most of my state is covered by a service partner and its only 2g that is if you can even get a signal. While Sprint has 4G in my area along with AT&T and Verizon.

      • J Cav the Great

        Then clearly T-Mobile is not for you.

        • ReverseRoxas

          So Sprint is then… What exactly have we accomplished here? Feels like everyone likes to get in on the anti-Sprint circlejerk.

          • http://twitter.com/Vanakatherock Vanakatherock

            Welcome to Phandroid where hating Sprint is the norm. Don’t bother trying to defend Sprint as you’ll be outnumbered by the trolls who had Sprint years ago and believes their network hasn’t changed one bit since.

    • spicymeatball

      Yeah, your trolling unless you want to mention your state so people can verify if your bs’ing or in a bad state like wyoming or or just live in a bad part of your state.

    • Hack

      Congratulations? Pretty sure that no one from T-Mobile is going to see your little tirade and even if they do, they are not going to do anything about it just because you told them to.

  • J Cav the Great

    That’s dope. I use Pandora, I♥Radio, Google All-Access, and Win-Amp……so that will save me some data…..#Uncarrier

  • chuckles87

    So you get unlimited data to stream music while you already have unlimited data. Or did they just cut unlimited data

    • Rook HD

      this is good for those who don’t have real unlimited data like me… (capped at 1Gb then 2G).

    • Keith S

      I think you only get 1 or 2GB over the 4G. The rest is 3G. Streaming before meant using up your 4G faster. Now you don’t have to worry about using up your 4G.

    • spicymeatball

      They are talking full throttle data

    • UMA_Fan

      basically this announcement doesn’t affect you because you have unlimited data anyway

  • Jay

    No benefit to me but this is a great way to maintain and attract customers. Kudos to TMO for their uncarrier moves.

  • Dwight

    Weird, this seems like small scale sponsored internet to me, not letting smaller music streaming services grow on their network, yet nobody is freaking out about it…

    • Jason E Perkins

      The Verge is (http://www.theverge.com/2014/6/18/5822996/t-mobile-music-freedom-net-neutrality), and rightly so. This is the opposite of net neutrality.

      Edit: It looks like T-Mobile is the one footing the bill, not the individual streaming service, which means this isn’t a net neutrality issue after all. Which is great. As a T-Mobile customer, I feel a lot better about enjoying this now. I just hope they add Google Play Music to the lineup soon, as it’s the one I use.

  • DavidFR

    The difference between Simple choice customer and non-simple choice is $48 a year, Mr Legere has really surprised music lovers by uncarrier 6.0 …………………………telecomvibe[dot]com

  • Tomato88

    Slacker made the list! Yay!

  • Phaz0n

    This is good for tablets on their network.

  • Ckburks
