T-Mobile USA Investor Relations Meeting, In Pictures

I just love days when the news comes fast and furious and today, with T-Mobile USA holding their invest relations day, we’ve got a TON of news.  Most importantly, the pictures are posted and we’ve got the full link, but we grabbed the most important ones and put them in a gallery for you!  They should likely make sense on their own with a few showing T-Mobile strategy for the future, competitive advantages and places where they feel they can make great strides.

We’ve got a few financial slides, HSPA+ slides and even one or two that show the likely evolution to LTE in the coming years.  Really, you should just look at them and then head to the comments and discuss!

    So, did anyone ask T-Mobile about it false advertising the myTouch 3G Slide as having Android 2.2 when it does not?

      just let it go

      • Len

        Based on the wailing and gnashing of teeth I’m hearing on the T-Mobile Community forums, they just can’t let it go. Probably a genetic thing. (Quite happy with my mT3GS, myself.)

        • Tyrone M Jackson

          You obviously have never used a WiFi calling cable phone before. Many of the TMO Blackberries and Nokia’s have had it since 2007. I need it due to the building I work in. And the fact that you’ve never run into the lack of internal ROM for apps says droves about your level of use of your phone.

      Might not exactly be ‘stock’, but the MT3GS does technically have 2.3: http://www.cyanogenmod.com/

      ….wouldnt it be funny if all new mts ‘s had 2.2 from factory…..

    • jcj

      So maybe that means that an OTA to 2.2 is up coming. Makes sense to me since that just started upgrading the original mytouch

    its nice to see coverage will be beefed up. i work at time warner cable and we do the backhaul for tmobile so i hear about all the towers being put up in the middle of the night but i havent seen the results. i hope with the new phones like the optimus 2x or black and the huawei ideos x6, vibrant 4g and others, we tmobile customers will be happy to tout not only our phones but our network and how much we pay as well.

  • hi!

    poor tmobile.

    They just don’t get “it”.

    If people wanted, “affordable handsets” they wouldn’t be tripping over each other for iPhones and Droids. We tried the value/cheap phone approach, we’re in last place. Time to step it up

    • jay_max

      If you thought that was TMO’s only approach, you need to re-read the materials.

    • jcj

      Well if they give low cost good quality phones, like optimus T or Comet. why argue, may not be high price but has same OS and features for less money

    • Anonymous

      Huh? Do you follow the industry at all. The top three carriers increased customer count through acquisitions. Anyone can push the numbers up by buying millions of customers.

      People tripping over each other for iPhones? LOL… In 2010 1.3 billion handsets were sold. Want to venture a guess how many of those were iPhones.

      The reality is starting to sink in, with stories like this:

      I do think T-Mobile should have “outbid” Verizon to get the iPhone, make it a loss-leader is necessary. But this was not because the iPhone was better, it would have been just to capitalize on the free publicity on the iPhone finally going to another carrier.

  • TMobileCustomer

    2 things I want to comment about after browsing through most of the pictures.

    1.) Their coverage map for 2011-2013 is insane, if they truly are working on doing that kind of coverage update; I give them mad props.

    2.) They pointed out a flaw in their cell mobile internet plan; they slow your speed down to 56k after 5GB for the same price that Verizon charges ($30/month) T Mobile simply needs to drop the speed cap if they are wanting to compete with the big boys like they been talking about in their Carly ads.

    Not to mention with their increased speeds you can reach that 5GB ever so faster. :/

    • jcj

      you obviously have never heard of network lag. They are simply setting up traffic control, let the people who use it heavily still access it but allow people who use sporadically to still enjoy high speed without being forced to LAG due to people using their phones for their only web access bogging down the network. Anyone who complains 3G/4G is too slow is probably in an area that has users who stream al day long or use phones as modems eating up bandwidth

    • Emp

      Only a very very select few of customers are going to reach that 5G amount, and the very very select few people that do are not the ones T-Mobile is targeting.

    I think they are doing a good job of mixing entry smartphones with high-end smartphones, but they may need more high-end models to satisfy that market segment. Kids want smartphones too, which is why they don’t need every smartphone to be high-end, it doesnt make sense to do that. Everyone grows up to have a family and not everyone can afford 5 iphones on a family plan or 5 mytouch 4gs. If I had children, they definitely would not have those type of phones. Just beef up that in-house and outdoor coverage and get those high-end phones ready and they’ll be fine.

    I hate to be the ass to say it but I don’t see the iPhone there and as long as we don’t plan on offering it we will see a steady drop in customers. Any person can see that if tmobile sold the iPhone i bet that we would def propel past sprint and maybe overtake att but as long as there is no plan for the phone we will still stay stuck in fourth place. It’s ashame too because android is so much better that iOS but look at the statistics people want the iPhone.

  • http://spritemoney.myopenid.com/ Andrew

    I think t-mobile may offer the iPhone once T-Mobile is bigger, and Apple gives them the iPhone, similar what apple did with verizon.

    • MIKEEEEE

      @andrew, want to get out there in the real world with an iphone and let me have my DEFY and see who needs a charger first?

      want to get out in fringe areas and see who drops first?

      if t-mo really wanted the iphone, they would have leveraged their european success and compelled apple to sell it here.

      ya think maybe t-mo usa doesn’t really want the iphone demographic?

        ive also got the defy. and i love it

    • MainlandKing

      It is not a matter of Apple GIVING the Iphone to anyone. It is a matter of negotiation between the two. Apple is brilliant, however they will not stay on top forever. Right now, it can be said that TMO is not willing to make the concessions that ATT and Verizon are making in order to get the phone. HooRah TMO. Apple can keep their phone. I’d rather be able to get phones when I need them, keep my number, add insurance to any phone I want, and STILL spend less than the other carriers as opposed to Verizon, taking away the new every teo program, EVEN FOR THEIR LONGEST CUSTOMERS. The reason Verizon got the Iphone is bc they agreed to let APPLE be the controller of their revenue with the Iphone, as well as let APPLE handpick the customers who will go to the next iphone if applicable. If Verizon does not sell the iphone any longer, you should see the penalty they would have to pay……

        lol Sorry i was in a rush when I wrote that, I know that apple went to VZW first and they turned them down, and them verizon basically begged Apple for the iPhone, and they gave it to them. T-Mobile said themselves they want the iPhone too, Apple would build an iPhone that supports the AWS bands for T-Mobile, but in my opinion I think Apple doesn’t think it’s worth doing that yet, because T-Mobile doesn’t have as much coverage/customers as VZW. I really want T-Mobile USA to get the iPhone, I wish they had the universal 3G bands, but I guess just use whatever the FCC gives to you. Also look at the 2013 coverage map, that’s pretty huge to me, I was refering to that btw

    VZW HTC Thunderbolt. The iphone. ATT’s Atrix. Sprint’s EVO 4G. Even little MetroPCS is steppin’ to the game with LTE and Samsung’s r910 for corn sakes. Granted, dropping the MT4G and the G2 to $99.99 and free, was a smooth move. But for my money, that LG Optimus 2X can turn this around for Tmo! I hope they have it on lock. If they bring *that* puppy in @ $99.99 they would take over the world, LOL – It’s the big guns that run things. Let’s see how this plays out.

    It is really cool to see the TMo strategy. I think that the increased focus on the business segment will pay off for us retail consumers. Focus on free add-ons like wifi calling is exciting to see as well. Love the 2013 coverage map. Hope they can make this happen.

      That 2013 map has a glaring issue: they say that all that hot magenta is “3G/4G”. So, it speaks to expanded >=3G coverage, but they don’t specify how “nationwide” their 4G is going to be.

      Note too, that the 200M people within range of their (3G? 4G? I forget what they used that number in reference to) network is still only 2/3 of the US population.

    T Mobile, I would drop Clearwire in a jiff if you offered unlimitted HSPA+ 40-50 dollars for unlimited would not be an issue. Thats better than what Clearwire offers.

    We do recommend you throttle after 30GB this year 40GB next year and 50GB the following year. Throttle it at 200kbps will be enough for everything but movies (unless you want the lag).

    Clearwire will cap you at 0.5Mbps or less even with their 60 dollar plan of 7Mbps, I know.. I suffer that problem and WANT to drop them. When it rains their service disappears. T Mobile give us an option and you will see an increase in Money that goes your way instead of Clearwire.

    T Mobile has the best service, then Clearwire, then Verizon and last are Comcast, ATT and Roadrunner.

    If you move, you have instant Internet with TMob or Clearwire. With all the others, it takes up to a month to get connected, and the associated fees.

    I think that T-Mobiles parent company is putting a lot of heat on them to start making a nice profit for them and their shareholders. T-Mobile has been in last place for so long, and the last CEO didn’t really have any kind of strategy as to how to improve it. It’s nice to see T-Mobile finally take the gloves off. I’m sure that all the other carriers are still laughing at them as the little carrier that could. But sometimes the little guy grow up and take on the big boys.

    I really like the sales strategy they are aiming for. The only reason I am considering switching is the lack of coverage. i don’t need to have 3G/4G everywhere, But to be able to check my email for school and make a call outside of the city and on the road to desolate areas where my family lives, would really make a world of a difference to me. I really depend on Google Maps to get me where I’m going and an extended connectivity area would be awesome.

    i will agree that old Bobby Dotson ( the last CEO) had the business prowess of a wet sponge. His business strategy was non existent. In fact, they only notable thing he did was help get the G1 and ultimately Android going. Phil Humm seems to have at least one semester of business school (pretty sure he;s actually got an MBA from Oxford or Harvard or some sh*t). My point is, its not coincidence Tmob is JUST NOW beginning to make a splash. Now, if they could just go fully 3G BEFORE worrying about 4G. I would be much happier, tell ya that much. But yeah, Sidekick 4G is looking like my phone AFTER the Optimus 2X.
