Oh Magenta you so silly. This is one of those mistakes that someone must have accidentally made and we never really take any joy from pointing it out. Still, if you are attempting to convince consumers that your company is a better value, better double check the math.

    Lol I noticed that as well but I was like yea ok whatever it probably was just an input error not a math mistake I’m sure t-mobile knows that 120 is greater than 115

    1 + 1 =?

      $35.00

    The annual savings for Verizon is also wrong then.  If it’s a $40, then $40 x 12 = $480.  I guess there’s just something about Big Red that makes T-Mobile miscalculate?

    I pay $95 a month on Verizon for unlimited Data, text, and voice.

      Good for you, and still cost more than T-mo.

      Why are you here if you are on Verizon?

        Hey there genius DAVID uses an Iphone!! 
        Why arent you asking him why he is here using an iphone on Tmobile?!

        • Anonymous

          Last I check the Iphone works with T-Mobile and this Blog is everything about T-mobile including the devices that work on it.  I’m not sure what you’re trying to get at?

        • http://tmonews.com David

          Because I like it better, it runs on T-Mobile and because I can. 

      • mack

        To prove to you idiots that TMO is full of crap. You pay almost the same amount for an inferior product and yet you walk around in your little worlds thinking you’ve got a good deal. You must be incredibly stupid or work for TMO!?

        • Jessi

          Hmmm, let’s see. T-Mobile has faster data speeds, no data cap, and far better customer service. That is one inferior product! I have paid At&t’s higher prices for poor service. I have paid Verizon’s highest prices and received the worst customer service of my life. I moved to T-Mobile and have never looked back. The price isn’t even the biggest issue. It is how they treat their customers that matters to many of us. I am certainly not stupid, and I don’t work for T-Mo. I am just sick of being treated like dirt under someones shoe.

        • Me

          Tmo does have data caps… i’ve hit the 5 GB cap atleast twice in the past few months :(

        • kendal

          well mack tmo has faster download speeds than ur candy ass

    • Mmmaxheadroom

      Anyone with an ! After his name proves only one thing ASS CLOWN!!!! Wow see that dork 4 count them 4 !!!! Troll somewhere erase you dufus..

  • Goukisan

    and the downward sprial continues for tmo

    • http://ashn.myopenid.com/ Ash

      Typo ≠ downward spiral.

      I guess you are also on a downward spiral…..It’s spiral, not sprial.
      Is you life spinning out of control now?? LOL

      • The ATL Guy

        Are you phuckin seriously following posters around pointing out their typos and also asking other posters why they are here?
        Time to get a life

        • Anonymous

          No, seems more like poking fun at someone who thinks a simple mistake is a downward spiral, it was actually pretty funny. Don’t think hes trolling for typos just pointing out the irony in someone equating a typo to a downward spiral but then not spelling words correctly in the same post. Foolish…

        • http://ashn.myopenid.com/ Ash

          You are the one who is following my posts and bitching.
          Seems you should follow your own preaching, get a life.

    I pay 80.00 a month for unlimited everything. I get very fast data speeds and loving T-Mobile. I tried Verizon and the 3G was so slow I might as well mail the imformation, as for their LTE network, very impressive but all the bugs it is having and the battery killer it is I will stick with T-Mobile at 8 mb download and no headaches then Verizon at 11mb download and many many headaches. LTE might be the future but I will wait until they iron out all the bugs. T-Mobile has it all, great data speeds, no dropped calls and the plans are 2nd to none.

      you couldnt of said it better… that’s really what it comes down too. stability and ease of use and an affordable pricetag compared to the competition.

    LOL…oh my damn,,,good catch!

  • The ATL Guy

    Why is it that the TMO marketing department if FOREVER frocking up?

  • http://twitter.com/iGNetworks iGNetworks

    Its been fixed. Check the link again.

  • Petey

    I’m pretty sure if T-Mobile carries the iPhone & have these type of plan running, they will surely move up from the position they’re at.

    @ T-Mobile’s addition guy: “You’re Fired!”

  • Biggbrother

    Looks like some slacker saw $35 and assumed activation fee and copy and pasted. Fire ‘em! This and this play on the word unlimited is getting ridiculous

  • The ATL Guy

    Isn’t verizon introducing a new family plan?

  • John

    ATT and Verizon may cost more, but their coverage is by far way better then T-Mobile. I travel everywhere in the country and have all 3 carriers. Don’t like sprint so I don’t have them. But T-Mobile lacks in phone coverage. Verizon has the largest phone coverage with the largest 3G Data coverage as well. ATT has almost as good of phone coverage as Verizon. But lacks big time in 3G Data coverage. T-Mobile, well let’s just say they need help. Even Metro PCS has better text coverage then T-Mobile.

    • Guest

      Metro PCS? I disagree. I have a few friends on Metro who get 0 – .5 bars in locations where I get full bars on my MT4G – that’s not to say that I’m getting HSPA+, but I’m getting full bars.

    • TMOTECH

      Text Coverage? 

    • Salvatore

      I also do a lot of traveling and the only time I did not have T-mobile coverage is when I was camping in the sequoia national park – and at 11,000 foot evelvation there is NO coverage by any carrier :)
      Oh – Also lose coverage while riding the subway/trains in NYC (again – no coverage by any carrier)

    • Champ

      3 cell phones? do you really expect me to believe this? let’s be real, only a fool would have 3 phones by 3 different carriers

      • http://twitter.com/FaroeseViking Dia Mortensen

        I must be a real prick then, I have 3 mobiles post paid (Different carriers), and 2 (different carriers) pre paid for here in America.  And I maintain 2 prepaids (Different carriers) for UK, 1 for Japan, 1 for DK and 1 for Trinidad.

      • Guest

        You can relate because when you work at McDonalds you only need a prepaid jitterbug phone. 
        One day when you make it to head cashier you will notice that business people sometimes need that many phones. 

      • Guest

        Maybe one day McDonalds will thank you for all your hard work by giving you a Ronald McDonald flip phone.

      would you say verizon is worth $40 more than tmobile a month? not to mention no tethering, and worst phones unless you want an iphone i guess

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

      Metro PCS roams off verizon for your text coverage. Sprint also roams off verizon. Also AT&T’s coverage is actually MORE than verizon, but their 2g network isn’t suppose to handle this many people.

  • Anonymous

    Hmm why u didnt compared your to Sprint??

    • Jayq330

      Cause sprint has better plans & unlimited 4G data with no throttling what so ever, see a person like me would hook up “movie stream” app to my HEART screen & watch over 6GB’s of data in 1 day. So sprint’s true unlimited/no throttling/no B.S.! Data would appeal to the target tmobile is after & instead would actually help sprint gain contracts while losing some of there own to them all @ the same tome, I know because I’m one of them switching & they’re also giving me $125 credit… same thing tmobile started doing after seeing how well its been working for sprint.

      • Donald

        First off…. spell check, use it. Second, I was on Sprint before going to Tmo, and they had the worst “4G” service available. I was paying extra for something I rarely would get, since it was mostly 3G instead, and I had random call drops around the SLC area, where I only had one with Tmo. Again, spell check, use it.
