Freebies is an understatement. T-Mobile is offering everyone 200 MB of 4G LTE data free every month, indefinitely, regardless of whether or not you’re a T-Mobile customer. If you have a 4G LTE tablet, you can use it with T-Mobile’s network. Since 200 MB isn't very much data to work with, T-Mobile hopes that this freebie lures you away from the competition. For example, you can score $10 per month for unlimited 3G data plus 500 MB of 4G LTE data, then $10 more every time you want to get 2 GB more of 4G LTE data (tablet pricing only.) A second major freebie T-Mobile is offering customers the iPad Air for free when it hits on November 1 without a penny out of your pocket (the day of purchase). Instead, you’ll have to pay in monthly installments (which could work for different financial circumstances) at a T-Mobile starting November 1. Let's see, grab an iPad Air from T-Mobile and walk out without any money leaving your wallet AND ON TOP OF THAT the free 200 MB of 4G LTE for life applies for the iPad Air, too? I know plenty of people that may snatch this deal up before it becomes extinct. via
It wasn't too long ago that T-Mobile announced major change with Global voice and texting plans. But the un-carrier isn't done yet. They have another press conference tomorrow October 23rd.According to a T-Mobile press release there is a part 2 to the Uncarrier 3.0 event. But what is this part two about?
T-Mobile Uncarrier 3.0 Part II Conference DetailsThis conference is about "Unleashing the Tablet in an disruptive un-carrier way". We don't know what exactly T-Mobile means by that, but we believe that they are coming up with new tablet plans. It could also be that there are different ways to get tablets. Whether it'd be through the JUMP plan, or a different type of trade-in program. With the big changes T-Mobile has brought to the industry, we don't know what it could be. They could even be changing up their tablet plans. You can see a sample price of their data plans. T-Mobile's Data Plans

T-Mobile Uncarrier 3.0 Announcements1. 4G LTE is now nationwide (rollout). That means T-Mobile is now reaching more than 200 million people in 233 metros across the U.S. 2. Stateside International Talk & Text: T-Mobile now allows their customers to call certain countries (70 Simple Global countries) for just $10 more (to their Simple Plan). And when in those select Simple Global countries, T-Mobile customers will have unlimited text, unlimited voice calls, and pay just $.20 / minute for voice calls. 3. Starting October 31st, T-Mobile will offer unlimited text and data to 100 Simple Global countries worldwide. They will also pay just $.20 / minute for voice calls when roaming in the same countries. No activation or extra monthly fee necessary. 4. Partnership With Shakira - T-Mobile has also partnered with Latin Grammy award-winning artist Shakira to help spread key messages. The partnership between T-Mobile and Shakira goes hand in hand with their global coverage. I guess she's somewhat of a creative director. Those that travel often or call overseas often may breathe a sigh of relief. It's great not having to be worried about roaming charges or international rates.
“Today is all about bringing the world closer together,. I’m excited to partner with T-Mobile and look forward to being able to share my music in new and innovative ways.” - Shakira You can learn about T-Mobile's plans HERE You can learn about T-Mobile's devices HERE
T-Mobile Unleash Event-Mobile hosted an event at Bryant Park in New York City to announce their 4G LTE rollout, International plan add-ons and coverage. Superstar Shakira performed a set of her hits, including "Whenever, Wherever" and "She Wolf". But that wasn't before Swizz Beatz came out and rocked the whole park with a few mixes. By the time Shakira came out, Swizz had the crowd hype! T-Mobile is definitely changing the carrier world. They were the first to dump contracts, and let you upgrade early. With their device roster rising, now International plans to add, AAAND they are offering a few devices at $0 down, they are definitely becoming the new competition! Who has tried T-Mobiles's 4G LTE service? Who is thinking of switching over?

It Can Wait Campaign Grows - All 4 Major US Carriers Support the CauseNow joined by Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile, the It Can Wait campaign is getting stronger. It doesn't just have the support of these carriers, there are 200 other companies that are spreading the word. “Texting while driving is a deadly habit that makes you 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash,” said AT&T Chairman & CEO Randall Stephenson. “Awareness of the dangers of texting and driving has increased, but people are still doing it. With this expanded effort, we hope to change behavior. Together, we can help save lives.” The summer-long initiative kicks off on May 26th and will be supported by a new national advertising campaign featuring people who are living with the consequences of texting while driving, a large-scale nationwide texting-while-driving simulator tour, major retail presence in tens of thousands of stores, and more. The campaign, aimed at educating drivers to change behaviors that will ultimately help save lives, will run throughout the summer months between Memorial Day and Labor Day, deemed by AAA as the “100 Deadliest Days” for teen drivers.
It Can Wait Campaign Grows: Shocking Facts About Texting and Driving:Texting while driving is an epidemic, and it’s not isolated to teen drivers. It affects adults as well. A recent AT&T survey shows business commuters know texting while driving is unsafe, but they still engage in these behaviors. In fact: They are texting and driving more than they used to.
