After taking a heat over the accusations by the United States Federal Trade Commission that it placed unauthorized charges on phone bills for years, T-Mobile is back in the news with some positive headlines.

As noted by the TMoNews blog, the Deutsche Telekom-owned carrier will soon start treating its customers to a $100 rebate when buying an iPhone and iPad together, as part of its back-to-school promotion that launches on July 9…

The rebate will be offered in the form of a mail-in rebate that will get you a $100 Prepaid MasterCard. As noted by Cam Bunton of TMoNews, T-Mobile’s back-to-school promotion is launching in just two days.

Provided you’re a customer on T-Mobile’s Simple Choice postpaid plan and are upgrading or activating a new line, buying an iPhone and iPad together on the same day will net you a $100 mail-in rebate.

Customers must complete offer redemption online.

The promotion – said to be the “first of many back to school offers” – starts on Wednesday, July 9 and runs through September 2, 2014.

Later this month, T-Mobile is scheduled to begin offering accessories on its installment plans. And in related T-Mobile news, the just-released iOS 8 Beta 3 has enabled Wi-Fi calling for T-Mobile iPhones in the United States.

It’s a major development as Wi-Fi calling allows you to place phone calls over Wi-Fi networks, bypassing cellular networks and benefiting you with better call quality and improved battery life.

Apple notes that Wi-Fi calling will not work without entering your address, which will be used when making emergency calls.

    Some links do not work just a heads up.

    With the new iPhone 6 coming out I better sell my old iPhone & iPad before the value of it drops. I usually search 8-13 different sites to find the best offer, but I just found this company that compares all the buyback companies in one spot, it’s called RecomHub.

    It’s like Kayak but for Apple Devices that show you all the offers in one spot.
