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.

T-Mobile will give you an iPhone 5s to Test Drive their network free for 7 days

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

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

      1. lol

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

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

  2. 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

  3. Oh. Snap.

  4. 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?

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

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

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

    2. 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.

      1. 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.

  6. 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!

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

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

    2. 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.

      1. Then clearly T-Mobile is not for you.

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

          1. 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.

    3. 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.

    4. 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.

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

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

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

    2. 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.

    3. They are talking full throttle data

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

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

  10. 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…

    1. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Slacker made the list! Yay!

  13. This is good for tablets on their network.

  14. Just unlock the bootloader already!!!! wait wrong rant for wrong comment section…

  15. Pandora had this ad on today enjoy free of adds thanks to tmobile
