T-Mobile Fires Up Meme Generator, Has Fun at Verizon’s Expense

It’s 4/20, so you’ve probably seen an influx of marijuana stories making the rounds. One in particular that has caught our attention is from T-Mobile, who is having a bit of pun fun at Verizon’s expense on this stoner holiday. 

To sum it up, T-Mobile can’t stop themselves from bringing up customer migration numbers, the billions of dollars Verizon has spent on seemingly worthless entities, and Magenta’s recent killing at the spectrum auction.

Poking a bit of fun, T-Mobile has inserted “HIGH” into Verizon, making it VerHIGHzon. Couple that with the song “Because I Got High” by Afroman and you’re left with a schoolyard insult game that Verizon likely won’t stoop to. Not that I care, but I’d imagine Verizon has more important things to do on 4/20. Being the biggest carrier in the US is probably stressful, you know?

What follows are a few of T-Mobile’s more clever uses of the word.

 

 

Some are funny, some are pretty bad.

Whether you find them funny or not, T-Mobile’s marketing team probably had a blast making them, and that dog with the birthday hat sure does seem to be enjoying himself.

    I pay 80 a month with 10 gigs and when i need to talk to people i can lol im not searching for service

  • Cliff Lee

    Hilarious!

    What’s a good deal now, if you don’t need unlimited, is AT&T’s Cricket service. Far better coverage than T-Mobile (Cricket is all of AT&T’s native coverage but no roaming). Five lines are $100 with no added taxes and fees, with 3GB high speed data for each phone. To go to 8GB it’s another $10 each for the lines you want it on. It is unlimited data, but the data is severely throttled after the limit is reached. I keep a prepaid Verizon line on Page Plus ($30 per year) for the times I travel to non-AT&T areas, which is very rare.

  • Steven Scharf

    If you can live with the abysmal coverage in much of the country then T-Mobile is a great deal!

  • 6stringslinger

    LOL!!!

    Managing director of Google!, is explaining to users to start off “Work at home” method, that People have been doing for about one year now. These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

  • midnitestich

    Daughter-in-law has T-Mobile with an IPhone. Sounds like she’s talking into a tin can with a string for connection…that’s when her call isn’t breaking up. Doesn’t matter if she calls my cell or my landline. Spend a lot of time saying “I can’t hear you”. Wish she would switch to a more reliable carrier. We don’t live in the sticks either, we’re in a large metropolitan area.

    • Hiran

      How is Verizon in your area? like compared to T-Mobile.

  • Oscar Cavail

    Tmobil how long will you survive an onslaught of unlimited users until download speeds start to suck? As Verizon UDP user I love all the Tmobil defectors. Currently at 27 mpbs in the middle of the NYC work day…for $50 a month after 27 gbs of data this month with no throttling.

    TIM YOU SOUND PRETTY BITTER ABOUT, GET OFF VERIZONS NUTS PLAYA, T MOBILE IS A GOOD CARRIER NOW AND IS CHEAPER, VERIZON SO EVIL THAT YOU CANT EVEN USE A EMPLOYEE DISCOUNT WITH THE NEW EMPLOYEE PLANS!!!! THATS JUST GREED AT ITS HIGHEST LEVEL, I WAS GONNA BRING OVER 6 LINES FOR THE S8 AND UNLIMITED BUT THEY WAS GONNA CGARGE 210.00 IN ACTIVATION FEES, I STUCK WITH T MOBILE CAUSE I LIKE MONEY

    • TheVoiceOfReason

      You realize GPS has nothing to do with your wireless carrier right?

      • Daeshaun

        Yeah. You realize that map data doesnt load if you don’t have data, right?

      Do you travel for work? Stay with Verizon. Safe than sorry.

    • JR

      Are you using Google Maps? If so, you can pre-load/save the map data, ahead of time. I did this while taking a trip to parts of Canada, and it worked well, with data completely off.

  • stanley

    TMobile is a joke where I live even spots in the city it drops to edge. They have a lot of dead spots within the few States around me where we drive to vacation. They’re far from reliable for me but if they ever do increase their Network coverage I’d consider switching from Verizon.

    • TheVoiceOfReason

      That’s what the 600MHz band they just acquired is supposed to do, help with coverage and building penetration.

      • stanley

        Yeah by 2020, if it even happens like they want it to.

    • Hiran

      How is Veriozn in your area. I don’t even trust T-Mobile. T-Mobile is a silly joke..

      • Daishi

        Spoken by a true VZW puppet. Can’t even spell your company’s name correctly, huh?

  • Arty McBert

    Oh look, yet another corporation appropriating unfunny memes and Internet culture while being cringeworthy and embarrassing in order to stay relevant to millennials.

    • TheVoiceOfReason

      T-Mobile is pretty relevant with millennials as it is. The problem is that’s the only audience they’re going to attract with stuff like this.

      • Eric R.

        No they’re not. All millennials are brainwashed to Verizon being the best. Just like they are with Apple

        • cincy-backpacker

          Ah yes, people are brainwashed even if those things actually work better for them. Do tell us more.

          • Well, they just stereotyped an entire generation, so you really shouldn’t be expecting much in the way of logical reasoning.

          • Eric R.

            Lol. I’m actually on Verizon because that’s what works for me in my area. I know there are places where TMobile works better.

        • Blanket statements are fun! By the way, I’m a millenial, on Cricket, with a Moto X Pure. Bite me. I have two VZW UDPs, but that’s only because I use them tethered for home internet, there’s no better option where I live. Otherwise I would have dropped them years ago, Verizon has treated me like dirt.

        • Nate

          Millennial here.. on T-Mobile.. not all of us are brainwashed

      • itguy08

        I’m not a millenial and I find it funny. It breaks the PC corporate culture nonsense. And because, F Verizon.

    • Muppet

      Oh look, some old fart that refuses to retire or move on to create jobs for more qualified and harder working people.

      • Arty McBert

        >Old fart

        I’m only 25.

    • Me

      These are only slightly cringey

  • SkyW

    I’m one of those people that jumped from Verizon to T-mobile after being a Verizon customer for nine years. They kept trying to price me out of my unlimited plan and now I pay $50 less and have a new phone. In my area, T-mobile has just as good coverage. I was dumb for not switching sooner and saving a ton of money.

    • SJ

      Same for me. except service is slightly less streamlined, but at a savings of $160 down to $90, I can manage the 3 times a year it might matter. (Can always get a burner Verizon for vacation if I care…)

      • SkyW

        A guy I work with switched to T-mobile the same week I did and went from paying $250 a month for 2 gigs of data per phone to $100 and unlimited data. Can’t beat that.

    • T4rd

      Same here, held onto their UDP until last year and even kept contracts going with my 3rd line so I wouldn’t see the price hike on it.

      I definitely get a bit more dropped calls, but data service is comparable in my area. It literally cut my bill in half though (going to the 6GB SC plan with 3 lines), so I can’t complain much.

      • Elizabeth Sarah Hardersen

        You should have read those contracts. They don’t prevent price increases. The only agreement that locks a price is the first 2 year contract. Everyone after that is strictly a discounted phone, for 2 years service.

        • T4rd

          Except they actually did prevent the price increase.. because that’s exactly what they did for the 5 years I kept them in contact, wether or not they were contractually obligated to or not.

    • Same story here. NYC. Although I’m still keeping my Grandfathered VZW UDP as a hotspot only for a small office. Got it down to $50 a month after taxes. (Still under contract until November, No text, 30min secret phone plan.)

    • dunning-kruger

      This is me. Though I have Project-Fi now.

    • Cliff Lee

      Same here!

  • exzaybien

    Mildly entertaining, but where are the S8 bogof deals, I’m ready to leave big red

  • Larinx

    Verizon has always been the dumbest company. Reminds me of Apple, with rabid fans, that defend them to the death while the rest of the world moves forward. Glad to see they’re losing.

    • TheVoiceOfReason

      But they’re not.

      TMo might grab some customers here and there, but they’re far from catching up to Verizon’s numbers.

      • Larinx

        verizon is losing customers every qtr, tmobile is gaining them. doesn’t matter what you say, verizon is on the losing end of that stick

        • TheVoiceOfReason

          Keep telling yourself that.

          • Larinx

            LOL. Nice rebuttal.

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            No rebuttal needed. Your “hurr hurr verizon is losing” thing is worth a chuckle, but is hardly a valid argument when you consider T-Mobile is still the #3 wireless carrier in the United States. Verizon can stand to lose a million or two customers and retain their top spot.

            The reality is, T-Mobile has a long way to go to reach even AT&T’s #2 spot numbers. And they’re not going to get there without concentrating on building penetration.

          • Larinx

            Again. They’re gaining customers every qtr, and verizon isn’t. Your “hurr hurr verizon is still winning” thing isn’t reflected on their earnings call (losing 307,000 customers this past qtr) or their stock (down 8.7% on the year).

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            Keep hope alive. Maybe someday T-Mobile will catch up.

          • Larinx

            I’m fine with T-mobile. I don’t have some weird loyalty to them like you do to Verizon lmao. If they fail, oh well. if they don’t great. They don’t care about you, breh, don’t get so emotional.

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            There there. Dry those eyes.

          • Larinx

            Checkmate. Go back to bed (not before you get your frustration out one more time, though LMAO).

            Dude was like “Whatever makes you feel better!” hahaha

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            At least you tried. That’s the important part.

            Don’t stop believing.

          • jimt

            Someday is coming, they just paid 8 billion dollars for 600 MHZ spectrum. 600 MHZ spectrum is for penetration and rural areas. In the future Tmo will catch up while Verizon sleeps.

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            That is a great win for them, but they won’t be able to start actually making use of it until around 2020 at the earliest, from what I’m reading.

          • jimt

            They will start this year. There have to be phones available that can use it. I think 2020 is when it is all supposed to be put in use. It is like 700 mhz spectrum, it took a while because TV stations are still using it.

          • TC Infantino

            And building more towers to expand coverage, a lot.

          • JRomeo

            they purchased spectrum a week ago that penetrates buildings much better than verizon and at&t, so they’re well on their way to being #1. the spectrum they purchased even spans the entire nation.

          • Roger Alston

            It’s my understanding that Verizon is actually beta testing (for lack of a better word) their 5g network. I would think that’s a reason they sat out the 600 spectrum auction. Also, I would believe Vzw lost some customers 1st quarter of 17 is because I would say it was the last of the people running grandfathered unlimited data who were forced to give it up… I don’t recall (and I’m not looking up their quarterly earnings, it’s not that serious for me) reading about them having a net loss for customers in a quarter recently.

      • harrydevlin

        Also, Verizon, and to a lesser extent AT&T, have nearly all of the valuable corporate accounts.

        Still, there are areas of the country where T-Mobile has adequate coverage and as long as you don’t travel outside of those areas you’ll be okay. In California there are huge gaps in T-Mobile coverage, and it’s the same case in much of the west. T-Mobile likes to talk about the percent of the population that they cover, without mentioning the fact that a lot of those people like to go on trips to less urban areas.

        I was in Yosemite Valley last weekend. Check out the T-Mobile coverage in ZIP Code 95389. Then check Verizon’s coverage. And AT&T’s. Verizon has the best by far. AT&T covers Yosemite Valley pretty well. Sprint roams on Verizon. T-Mobile has no coverage and no AT&T roaming.

    • Arty McBert

      I’ve never met a person who actually likes Verizon, much less be a fan of them.

      • Larinx

        see fanboy below.

        • TheVoiceOfReason

          Now, now. No need to start name-calling and get all upset. It’s just a wireless carrier.

      • exzaybien

        I was a huge fan for a while when I had UDP with blazing speeds. Now they’ve jacked up the price and my area is so congested that I can’t stream anything.

      • Johnny Webb

        U you just did.

        • Hiran

          Would you rather pay more for Verizon’s network quality. I would

        • Reginald Kennedy

          Comcast actually sir

      • Mike

        I mean, I’m not a huge fan of their prices but I’ve never had an issue with them. I pay a premium and get a premium service which is a necessity for my job as I need coverage basically everywhere.

        When T-Mobile can match Verizon in coverage where I live I’ll be more than happy to change my tune, but I have no reason to not be a “Fan” of Verizon at this time.

      • TC Infantino

        I don’t just like Verizon, I think they are great. I have always been a fan of Moto phones, so they have me covered in that respect. I live in a rural area and drive in even more outback middle of nowhere places, and I am always covered by their network. I am on the grandfathered UDP and use somewhere around 40-50gb per month with never a throttling or slowdown. I still haven’t seen any other plan or carrier that could come close to my needs.

        • Hiran

          In your area, is this an only Verizon territory

      • Jason

        ive never had an issue with losing a signal because i live between baltimore and DC. but when we moved on the water near centreville we got nothing but verizon. i’d love to switch but unfortunately i cant. until these other “great” cell companies decide to focus on rural america as much as they focus on the city we dont really have a choice. maybe t-mobiles new low band long range frequencies might change all that.

        • Hiran

          When you’re friends or family comes over and they have either T-Mobile or Sprint or At&T. Do they have to go outside or just Verizon territory?

          • Jason

            no their phones are useless. inside or out. in fact my inspector had to backtrack and call me because his GPS stopped about 4 miles from the house.

      • michael arazan

        Every customer I know on verizon hates them, still uses them though because it’s still the best.

    • BG

      Not sure how both VZ and Apple are dumb companies? They generate billions of revenue a year, how is that dumb?

      • TheVoiceOfReason

        It’s a case of STOP LIKING WHAT I DON’T LIKE.

    • Prototype

      Not dumb, but not as intelligently run as it could be, that I’ll agree with.

  • brian.

    I truly enjoy the fact that T-Mobile has made all major carriers change their ways.

    These memes are childish for no reason.

  • David Tyler

    Not a fan of any carrier, but it is so nice to see T-Mobile bringing the almighty verizon down on their knees.

    • TheVoiceOfReason

      If anything, TMo is swatting at Verizon’s shins with a plastic bat.

  • MichaelFranz

    You know as childish as it seems, its nice to know that a major company/corporation can still be very “loose” and not so business snobby. We know this was all Legere’s doing and he loves it. I find it funny

    • JSo

      He probably had these planned months ago.

      • MichaelFranz

        i think these were all based on the earning call which happens today (i think) so he probably had them come up with them on the fly the last few days or whenever the call date was annouced.

        • JSo

          Well he probably had the term VerHIGHzon loaded up for today anyways. lol

          • MichaelFranz

            lol probably right

  • BG

    T-Mobile, the little kid trying to get attention at the grown-ups table

    • TheVoiceOfReason

      While Sprint is in the corner sucking its thumb.

      • While having the most ludicrous BYOD and data policies.

    • It sure worked, because now they are playing with the big players.

      • TheVoiceOfReason

        They’re not there yet. Verizon and AT&T still pummel them when it comes to signal strength.

        • MichaelFranz

          i beg to differ…..where i am right now. Speed test has Tmo (S8+) crushing ATT (work iPhone 7+) in speed. If i go into the bathroom which is dead center of the building ATT drops to 1 bar of 4G, not LTE, 4G. TMo stands in LTE state and the phone is perfectly usable on the porcelain throne.

          Now this might not be the case everywhere, but the 2 major places I go daily (work/home) TMo crushes ATT. Verizon too because prior to ATT we had VZW for work service. Speeds were similar but i had more issues home with VZW then ATT.

          I’m also a former VZW customer.

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            Head deep into a server room and then see how well TMo holds up.

            Verizon and AT&T can usually handle the signal penetration. TMo can’t.

          • Larinx

            lol why? it works where the overwhelming majority need it to work. Congrats on Verizon working in your underground radiation bunker.

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            Just saying, if T-Mobile wants to compete with the big boys, they have to do something about that. Verizon and AT&T have lots of business accounts with customers who need that kind of performance.

          • h4rr4r

            I agree, but 600Mhz is going to solve that problem.

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            The 600Mhz band is a great win for them, but unfortunately they’re not going to be able to start making use of it until around 2020 at the earliest, from what I’m reading.

          • Incorrect, they are going to start deploying it towards the end of 2017. 2020 is when the very last of it can be deployed.

          • BG

            okpud had a great post on this in the comments last week

            “I’ve been in the carrier mobile infrastructure business for for a long time (making SMS/MMS, IMS, RCS and similar equipment). I’ve built equipment that ends up at 3 of the 4 major US carriers (everyone but Sprint). Here’s the truth as I know it:

            Most of this won’t be “available” until well into late 2018, and it won’t be fully available until 2020

            Mobile 5G mmWave will be a big push to consumers 2019/2020 (fixed mmWave 5G is all over the news now)

            Mobile 5G requires a robust 4G to operate efficiently. Effectively, the 4G is used to calls, messaging, low bandwidth IMS/RCS, and the long range control channel for 5G services.

            TMO was in desperate need for more 4G LTE low frequency channels. Without them, their chances of deploying a robust 5G network are crap.

            Verizon and AT&T invested in this space early on in the 700MHz bands (Verizon bought the most 700MHz), so their needs for 600MHz were minimal. AT&T just scooped some up to fill a few holes.

            Verizon + AT&T are already making heavy investments into mobile 5G and are leading the way in the US.

            So, basically, TMO NEEDS these blocks to stay relevant in 2020 and beyond. Verizon and AT&T do not. TMO may get a brief boost in overall 4G performance come 2019, but it will be short lived as 5G begins to take over. Basically, TMO is playing catch up to Verizon and AT&T’s 10-15 year plans that they started 10 years ago…

            More detail on the auction here:
            http://www.rcrwireless.com/
            “Television broadcasters that gave up their spectrum holdings as part of the auction’s reverse bidding process are now on the clock to give up those licenses over the next 39 months. That timing would put full spectrum availability into early 2020, or about the time most expect commercial “5G” services to be coming on air.

            Initial 5G deployments are expected to focus on higher band spectrum licenses in the 3.5 GHz band as well as millimeter wave bands higher than the 15 GHz band. These bands are set to include broad swaths of spectrum support in order to meet the expected capacity needs of 5G services.””

          • Which is different than what you said at first. T-Mobile can deploy 5+5 throughout the entire country I believe as early as late 2017, but I heard they will start later this year. So as I said earlier, 2020 is when they expect to be completed, not when they just get around to starting.

          • BG

            I never said anything…but ok

          • You said “Verizon and AT&T still pummel them when it comes to signal strength.” I think what you meant was when it comes to coverage, because again, signal strength from one tower between all the carriers is nearly identical when they are using the same bands.

          • Hiran

            When will we get 5G phones, but can we use the phones like Moto Z Force Droid with 5G or does it have to be a new phone?

            Why so long… And how long are they renting that spectrum for?

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            600MHz is used as a TV band currently, so it’s not available to them right away.

            Soon though.

          • Hiran

            600 will NOT work with 700. It could CAUSE INTERFERENCE

          • h4rr4r

            They are 100Mhz apart, so no.

          • Higher_Ground

            VZW had terrible building penetration where I’m at until they installed w/e device that amplifies the signal (I guess?) and now it’s pretty decent.

            Not that I can get out that often, but I did like the fact that I could be pretty much in the middle of nowhere and still get VZW coverage.

            It wasn’t always like that, though. It definitely took several years for them to get to this point. I’m sure if Tmobile can keep growing they will eventually catch up too.

            Zing!!

          • Mark Kendrick

            I tried them out for awhile and their service seemed pretty good overall but like you said get inside a server room or concrete building and it goes to [email protected] When they buildout their newly acquired 600Mhz spectrum I may give them another shot.

          • Hiran

            What do you mean by signal penetration is it good/bad?

          • JR

            Not where I work. Reinforced concrete meant neither VZW or T-Mo were doing very well on signal. But that’s why we have wifi and wifi calling.

          • brian.

            I switched to T-Mobile because they offered Unlimited data. I really enjoyed their service, especially because it was great in my area. I did a speed test and it crushed Verizon.

            Then I started to notice a few issues like text message delays, building penetration still, things not auto-downloading when I set them to.

            When Verizon announced a similar plan, I switched back. I still got less speed with speed tests, but it was much more consistent. All those issues went away instantly, plus when things did download, it took less time…

            I’m not all on board any carrier but Verizon seems to have it over T-Mobile at the moment compared to reliability.

          • GTIguy

            Where do you work? I work for a hospital and we had (still have) Sprint and T-Mobile repeaters in house. So Sprint and T-Mobile crushed Verizon and AT&T for years and it wasn’t close. We recently had a Verizon repeater installed and now Verizon is on top again as far as speed and reliability within all parts of the massive building. Maybe the T-Mo tower is closer or you have repeaters nearby, but independent statistics don’t lie. All things being equal, Verizon is king.

            I’m not trying to take anything away from your comment, and T-Mobile sounds like the best option for you in your case.

          • Hiran

            How do repeaters work?

          • GTIguy

            They amplify weak signals when towers aren’t close by. I’m not sure if that’s the exact term but it’s what the Sprint guy used when pointing them out to me during a walk through. They were installed in elevator shafts, as well as a few other places in the building.

          • MKader17

            Thanks for the clarification of the 2 major places because I honetly thought you meant work and the work bathroom.

        • What do you mean? Signal strength is roughly the same on all carriers since most use very similar bands.

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            Head deep into a concrete building and then see how well T-Mobile holds up.

            That’s their problem.

            Outside, T-Mobile works great.

          • T-Mobile actually has slightly lower frequency spectrum compared to Verizon. So your point that signal strength is worse is false. Now if you’re saying coverage is worse, then I agree, but you’re saying the signal strength from a T-Mobile tower is worse than other carriers, which is false.

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            T-Mobile’s lower frequency spectrum is not available everywhere just yet. They’re getting there though.

    • MichaelFranz

      got my attention, 3 lines for $100 and unlimited on all, and great service where i am? Whats not to like?

      • BG

        but wait, you want HD video? thats more. You want to leave a major city? Bye service
        I would much rather pay $45/line from VZW for UDP for the best service possible. I do however prefer GSM networks for the ease of use (can bring on any phone)

        I don’t have a major issue with the company themselves, just Legere. He thinks he comes in with the greatest pricing plans when it reality they are full of shortcuts and fine print.

        • TheVoiceOfReason

          That’s true. Video streaming with their standard unlimited plan tops out at 480p. If you want HD video, you pay extra.

          • MichaelFranz

            no, they did the same as VZW when they went unlimited again. I have no issues. Videos are displayed at whatever the content is uploaded at.

          • TheVoiceOfReason

            Not according to a commercial they’re currently playing on the radio. It says video content is presented at 480p.

            You might want to double-check that.

            This updated T-Mobile One plan includes HD video, 10GB of high-speed mobile hotspot, and unlimited international data with speeds up to 256kbps (previously was 128kbps) in more than 140 countries and destinations.

          • Daistaar

            It actually says limited time offer in that very link right under the graphic…

          • steb0ne

            Some people only see what they wanna see lol!

          • Tyler Durden

            No, it’s free and included now with 10GB of hotspot as well.

          • Justin W

            No, that was only a temporary promotion. It is $5 more to get HD video and 10GB tethering.

        • Nate

          Ya not true at all. On the T-Mobile plan, get full HD on my stream..

        • SJC

          I live in a rural area, with a medium city over 25 miles away and T-Mobile is working great for me. I switched from US Cellular after 21 yrs of the best customer service in the business. But I needed Wi-Fi calling since my home is in a deep valley, that even our neighbors with Verizon can’t service. T-MOBILE with its great pricing sealed the deal for me.

        • Hiran

          I love Verizon. Excellent coverage and network quality.

        • William Pfannkuch

          Big city my foot I live in Englewood Florida at little town riddled by problems from Verizon and no service from Sprint. After switching to T-Mobile with six line I no longer have a cable bill for Wi-Fi my phone does a better job speed is incredible. Also when I travel out of the country for $20 I get unlimited data in Colombia South America and Panama which down there they sell a maximum of two gigs my phone automatically runs from the three Biggie’s movistar claro and Tigo and I’m never without a signal everyone here is jealous and my house runs off T-Mobile I don’t need TV or Internet now that I have the best telephone service of course my kodi helps with that. The four antennas give me 11 channels on each TV. Literally saving five to $600 a month…
          Bye bye Verizon after 13 years switching

        • JR

          That’s not been my experience, for years now. I get HD video just fine and drive up and down the east coast with plenty of service. My bill is $60/m cheaper and I couldn’t be happier.

          I also get a much wider selection of devices, no locking down. I understand some people prefer VZW, but the alternatives are also fine.

    • Seems to be working out pretty well for them, so, poke fun all you want.
