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.
According to T-Mobile’s marketing chief Mike Sievert, 80,000 breakup letters have already been posted to social networking sites by customers who have made the switch.
This is not just a promotion – what we are trying to do is bring an end to unfair one-way onerous contracts in this country.
In addition to offering the Break Up program to customers of additional carriers besides the Big Three, T-Mobile is also looking to expand on the amount of devices new customers can trade in for credit, as well as to take in damaged devices, but customers should expect less credit.
No exact time was given for when US Cellular customers can make the switch and get credit, but we are sure that T-Mobile will make a big deal about it and will be sure to spread the word.
Do we have anyone here that has already taken T-Mobile up on its deal?
