And the oddest match-up of the century goes to, T-Mobile and Tim Tebow. In the UnCarrier’s latest commercial, the out-of-work quarterback pokes fun at himself, as he continues life without an NFL contract. Get it…T-Mobile and no contracts?
During his time without one, Tebow has been able to deliver babies, save puppies from burning buildings, do his own stunts in B-movies, call out Iceland during a world peace meeting, throw actual moonshots, and take selfies with Bigfoot. Who knew that being out of work could be so awesome for Mr. Shirtless-in-the-rain.
T-Mobile is at it again this afternoon, releasing a press release just hours after an earnings call from AT&T, celebrating the carrier for leaving “the Dark Side.” What makes the release even funnier is that T-Mo had the cojones to use fake quotes for AT&T’s own Ralph de la Vega, implying that he has somehow seen the light and decided to put the customer first for a change.

T-Mobile customers, if you have been awaiting the announcement of the LG G Flex or Optimus F3Q, then today’s announcement should excite you. This morning, T-Mobile announced that both devices will be available on its network starting February 5, with pre-orders for the G Flex starting today. (more…)
According to HTC’s roadmap for software updates, the Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” update for the One on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile has now reached what they have dubbed the “certification” stage. In other words, we are getting closer to a release now that HTC is giving this initial build a last look before carriers take a crack at it. (more…)
T-Mobile is on a roll lately, paying subscriber’s ETFs with UnCarrier 4.0, and with a new move to pay for referrals to their network. For folks who refer their friends to T-Mo through a carrier switch, they can snag $25 per referral – up to $250 a year – to spend at T-Mobile.
If you are the type of person who usually recommends things to your friends and family (and they listen), plus you are on T-Mobile, then this is a no brainer. (more…)
T-Mobile wants to save your money. Yes, you read that right. Today, the wireless “un-carrier” unveiled a checking account service available to all T-Mobile customers called Mobile Money. The company is billing the program as a fee-free alternative to traditional banking. (more…)
T-Mobile is looking to beef up its Break Up program soon, hoping to offer the same $350 per-line contract break credit that it already does for Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint customers to US Cellular, and other smaller carriers throughout the US. If customers who switch to T-Mobile also trade in their old device, they could get up $300 in addition to the initial $350 – that’s $650 per line that is switched to T-Mobile. (more…)
If you watched any amount of TV this weekend or took a glance over at the sidebar of this site, you more than likely ran into a T-Mobile advertisement that talks about their new ETF-killing program. Seriously, these ads are everywhere, right now. Introduced during CES as their next UnCarrier movement, T-Mobile wants to pay the Early Termination Fees (ETF) from your current carrier to have you bring your business to them. It’s a bold move, though bold moves are exactly what we expect from a company led by a man willing to crash an AT&T party during CES and then call their CEO of mobility “fat” during a press event.
The plan works something like this:
- Bring your business to T-Mobile, and they’ll pay up to $350 in ETFs per line once you sign-up for service and send them the last bill from your previous carrier.
- Then, trade in the phone from your previous carrier to earn up to another $300.
- You have to sign-up for a postpaid Simple Choice plan and also buy a device.
- They will only pay ETFs from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon.
My question to you today is – are you going to take their offer and switch carriers? According to T-Mobile’s numbers, they had 4.4 million new customers join their UnCarrier way of life, so you certainly wouldn’t be alone.
