There’s been a shakeup this week in the mobile carrier community caused by Sprint and T-Mobile and you may want to do something about it.
T-Mobile, which recently rebranded itself as the “uncarrier” among U.S. wireless companies because of its abolishing of traditional two-year contracts, on Wednesday announced a new program called Jump to give customers on its network more freedom to upgrade their phones. Starting July 14th, customers will be able to upgrade phones twice a year, with the first upgrade coming in no earlier than six months. Jump costs $10 a month and includes insurance for the phone. Customers will be required to trade in their old phone.
Just a day after T-Mobile debuted its Jump upgrade plan, Sprint has answered with its own new plans that promise unlimited data for life. Starting July 12th, both new and existing Sprint customers can take advantage of the carrier’s offer by signing up for one of its new My Way or My All-in plans.
The new Unlimited, My Way plans features unlimited talk, text and data starting at $80 per month. However, you can opt for 1GB for data for $70 monthly if you’re looking to save money. You can also choose to add 1GB of hotspot data to your phone for $10 per month.
And how will AT&T and Verizon respond with competing customer deals? Hopefully we’ll hear something very soon…
Are you a Sprint customer & plan to upgrade to the new unlimited My Way or My All-in plans? Why? Are you a T-Mobile customer who’s looking to upgrade devices twice a year? Share your thoughts below…
t-mobile no contract refund
If you were one of the few people lured into becoming a new a T-Mobile customer based on the new “No Contract” ads seen on television in print, then you might be eligible for a serious refund. According to Washington State Attorney General, Bob Ferguson – T-Mobile has been deceptive in targeting customers with its’ “No Contract” campaign.
“As Attorney General, my job is to defend consumers, ensure truth in advertising, and make sure all businesses are playing by the rules. My office identified that T-Mobile was failing to adequately disclose a critical component of their new plan to consumers, and we acted quickly to stop this practice and protect consumers across the country from harm.” – Bob Ferguson, Washington State Attorney General
In a statement released by T-Mobile the carrier said that “As America’s Un-carrier, our goal is to increase transparency with our customers, unleashing them from restrictive long-term service contracts — this kind of simple, straight forward approach is core to the new company we are building, While we believe our advertising was truthful and appropriate, we voluntarily agreed to this arrangement with the Washington AG in this spirit.”
T-Mobile on their part has agreed to change its method of marketing their plans and offered refunds to anyone who signed up for their service between March 26 and April 25. The carrier will be contacting customers eligible for a refund or cancellation, but you can contact T-Mobile at 1-877-746-0909 or 611 on a T-Mobile phone for more info.

Blackberry’s newest Creative Director, Alicia Keys wants her fans to star in her next concert video. In her first move as the company’s global creative director, Keys is asking fans to submit photos of themselves that will be included in music videos, which she’ll play as part of her upcoming tour.
Alicia Keys is inviting fans to submit photos of themselves via BlackBerry’s Keep Moving hub. She’ll take those photos to create music videos that she’ll play when she sings her song “Hallelujah” during concerts in her “Set the World on Fire” tour, which starts on March 7. Every city on the tour will have its own unique video. This isn’t the first time Keys has crowdsourced a video. Last year she created a video for her song “New Day” from fan-submitted Instagram photos.
The site also has a new video from Keys where she describes her feelings on the project. You can view it below.
Instagram is an iOS and Android app, and it’s not available on BlackBerry, so there’s no mention of it in the announcement. However, fans don’t need to have a BlackBerry device to participate in the contest — they can use any camera to shoot their pics. The only requirement is to submit the photos through the Keep Moving site. (Hmmm, the app isn’t available on Blackberry – yet it’s a Blackberry led promotion….I wonder if Alicia’s still using her iPhone?)
Do you plan on checking out the “Set the World on Fire” tour next month? What about the Blackberry Z10, has the excitement fizzled out?

Alicia Keys was named Blackberry Global Creative Director earlier today.
The performer was introduced on stage during the company’s BlackBerry 10 launch in New York.
“Alicia Keys has come to BlackBerry because she believes in the product and technology, and subscribes to our overriding philosophy to ‘Keep Moving’: to empower people through mobile computing and communications,” said BlackBerry President and CEO Thorsten Heins in a statement.
He added, “We are excited she will be bringing to us her enormous capabilities, as well as a vast network of relationships in the entertainment, social media and business communities, to help shape our brand and grow our business.”
“In her new role, Alicia will work closely with app developers, content creators, retailers, carriers and the entertainment community to further shape and enhance the BlackBerry 10 platform, and inspire creative use through its remarkable capabilities and functionality,” reads a statement on Keys’ website.
It continues, “From music to books, to film, to apps, Keys will lead the charge of enhancing entertainment consumption and distribution, through the power of BlackBerry 10.”
It took no time for Alicia Keys to jump on Twitter and share the news with her fans…
The new Blackberry Z10 will undoubtedly be in the palm of Alicia’s hands in her next appearances (which will include singing the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl this weekend)… but will she really get rid of her iPhone? I’m sure the paparazzi would love to get their hands on a shot of Alicia jamming out to ‘Girl On Fire’ with her iPhone…LOL…
Will Alicia Keys influence your next smartphone purchase?
If you’re one of the few T-Mobile customers holding their breath for an iDevice…you can finally breath a sigh of relief.
Apple has confirmed news that T-Mobile will be carrying the company’s products in 2013.
The news came as part of a press release by T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom this morning. Apple representative, Natalie Harrison confirmed it earlier today.
In the coming year, T-Mobile USA will continue to reinforce its market presence with additions to its rate plan and product portfolio, including Apple products. “Following on from the preceding steps such as the spectrum swap with Verizon, the towers deal with Crown Castle and the transaction with MetroPCS that we have announced, we have now added the final piece to the jigsaw to boost the competitiveness of T-Mobile USA sustainably,” said René Obermann.
T-Mobile representative Michelle Taylerson reiterated that the company would bring Apple products to the carrier in 2013. “Additional details will be made available at a later date,” she said.
There was no mention of which Apple products T-Mobile would carry, but you’ll probably see the iPad and quite possibly the iPhone 6 make it’s debut next year…(don’t act like you’re not expecting it…LOL)
What do you think? Are you a T-Mobile user waiting on Apple to make the switch?
