T-Mobile Announces Un-Carrier 9
And today, my favorite mobile phone carrier or un-carrier, T-Mobile announced their un-carrier 9 incentive. Un-carrier 9 is making it easier for customers who are on AT&T’s Next or Verizon’s Edge payment plans to switch to T-Mobile by offering to pay their unpaid phone balance up to $650 per line and up to ten lines total, Wow! To take advantage, a customer needs to port their existing mobile number to T-Mobile, sign up the Simple Choice Plan and trade in their old phones. Customers will get the trade-in value right away and a prepaid card with the balance of outstanding phone payments after the trade-in value when they submit the carrier’s bill to T-Mobile.
Also as part of Uncarrier-9, T-Mobile is offering business simplified pricing, tools to help small business and up to 50% discount for families of business customers.
I will be writing more about T-Mobile in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime please check Cam Bunton’s unofficial TmoNews blog for further information.
