T-Mobile USA ditches Yahoo mobile search for Google

About a year ago, T-Mobile USA introduced Yahoo OneSearch as the default mobile search engine for its phones. But the exclusive deal with Yahoo has ended, and T-Mo didn’t want to extend it.

Instead, the fourth largest US carrier has chosen Google as its mobile search provider. Moreover, it looks like T-Mobile plans to work with Medio Systems, too (which indexes results for content like ringtones and wallpapers).

Reportedly, “Google Search is now active in T-Mobile’s Web2Go platform and home page.”

Even so, Yahoo is still working with T-Mobile USA, providing services like Yahoo Mail, News, Finance, Yahoo Messenger and Flickr.

At the moment, Google also provides mobile search for Sprint in the US. AT&T still works with Yahoo, while Verizon has a partnership with Microsoft.

Unlike T-Mobile USA, T-Mobile Europe didn’t ditch Yahoo for Google (yet).
