T-Mobile Calls For “All Hands Day” For September 24th

Details are sketchy at best but we’ve just received a huge number of emails indicating that T-Mobile has called an “All Hands Day” meeting for September 24th for unknown reasons. Could this be a pre-iPhone launch meeting? Could this be related to the AT&T takeover or could this be related to T-Mobile discovering water on Mars? In any case, mark your calendars down for September 24th because something is going down.

    Sprint has already leaked 1st October as iphone 5 launch and DT has started issuing pre-reservation tickets to Germans for the “next” iphone. Hopefully this will be either a GS2 or iPhone 5 launch! Here I come T-mobile!

    • Jimkenobi

      The Germans, in an effort to make the merger more palatable to the tmobile customer, have to play keep away with the iPhone. They will say “of course you can have the iPhone, when we merge with atnt.”. Don’t expect it before that.

    It’s not for the I-phone, it’s so they can get me a birthday present since that is my birthday.

      I agree. I think this is all for Archie though it could be another “big” sale to clear out some inventory.

    they are going to release the sgsII early.

  • stoneyjonez

    If it was related to the takeover, it wouldn’t just be directed at retail. It is some kind of product launch, but it is not the iPhone.

    If they were smart it will be for sgsII, since att and sprint will be coming with there’s this month.
    nothing about this says iPhone to me
    Besides the iphone 5 is like the unicorn of the mobile world..
    No proof it exists.

  • Bb6h22lude4

    Announcement for GS2? They said announcement in the coming weeks. Could this be it. I don’t think T-Mobile will be getting the iPhone.

  • Stephen Cullen

    If it is an iPhone, my guess is that it would be the iPhone 4 redux. iPhone 5 is looking like it will be later into October.

    Its none of that… T-Mobile is having their super sale to get everyone to buy their smartphones and not the iPhone on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. Thats all.

  • TonyJohns

    The iphone 5 (or whatever it’s going to be called) hasn’t even been announced yet, and it’s already less then 4 weeks til the rumored “release date”. I’m sure this all hands day is NOT the iphone.  I’m pretty much sure Sprint’s iphone release date won’t happen either.  

    • tmofan99

      You are just getting impatient. Remember that picture leaked awhile back ago of a iPhone running T-mobile’s 3G network? It’s going to happen, just a matter when…

        I’m not saying the iPhone will not be released on Tmo or Sprint, I’m saying it won’t be released as soon as everyone thinks it will.  Apple hasn’t even officially announced or unveiled what it will look like, and it’s already less then 3 weeks til the rumored date it suppose to be released.  I’m quite sure that release date won’t happen.

        • Littlesis1774

          They are probably keeping it under wraps.

        • Littlesis1774

          Why would T-mobile tiered their unlimited data plans which is a move AT&T, Verizon did when the iphone got released. Apple been testing iphone 5 on Sprint and T-Mobile

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AWWIKW6MNPUHOC4OVSHWUDWAHM Fabio

        Also T-Mobile now sells micro sim cards that the iPhone 4 uses… So a lot of evidence points to this event actually happening.

      WRONG Sprint is getting the iphone 5, do the research. I’m sure it is not the iphone 5 either and agree with others that is sound to be a solution to keeping ppl on t-mobile network before the release of the iphone 5 and ppl start jumping ship. Either way t-mobile is behind and they are really starting to suck! It would be smart for them to get the iphone 5 regardless of the price just to keep up with the times.

  • Phillip Geurtz

    Here’s hoping they’re having an all or most phones free (w/ 2 yr contract) like they did for Valentine’s Day. I thought they were doing the same for this past Father’s Day. Instead they gave away 1 year data plans on any new phone purchase. Picked up my wife’s G2 during the Valentine’s Day sale, hopefully I can finally get the Sensation I’ve been wanting for myself.

    Come on people, T-mo will never ever get the iphone for 3 really simple reasons.
    1.  They have horrible horrible management at pretty much every level that the only thing they see is their paycheck and not how to run the company.    They have run it pretty successfully into the ground, even with out DT’s help,  they is a reason DT is selling them
    2.  Tmo normally likes to keep phones that can handle  high speeds and work when you hold onto the handset.  Iphone can do neither
    3  the most important one,   Tmo will no pay the high “Jobs” price tag that comes with the iphone.

    • TonyJohns

      Agree with #3 the most.  A full retail price for an Iphone is nearly $700 or $800.  That wouldn’t fit with the current Value plans where you pay for full price of the phone (even if it’s spread over a 20 month period).   It wouldn’t be much of a  ”Value” then.

      • Craigers

        If this is true how can you explain the fact that they carry and pay for the price of the phone in Germany?

      • Gabriel

        Ppl will pay the 700 or 800 price tag for the iphone 5 on t-mobile network dont be surprised. If the phone came to t-mobile ppl would find a way to get the phone regardless of the price, it would sell better then any phone on the network PERIOD!

    It would be nice, if this were an early phone release.  Something worth looking at, ya know.  I mean, if it is in fact a phone…I really don’t care which one it is.  I like reading things on this site, and getting the information.  Pretty interesting….thanks TMonews.

    September 24th will be a cage match between Randall Stephenson and Dan Hesse. Phillip Humm will be the grand prize, and it will be refereed by Verizon CEO McAdam.

    If you read the memo, you’ll know that it has nothing to do with the iPhone.  The memo stated that September 24 is an all hands day because it is “an anticipated high-volume day“.  T-Mobile wants to “make the latest wireless Internet services accessible and even more affordable for everyone” (quoting the memo).  My guess is that all data plans will be 50% off on September 24.

    All of you are wrong!!!  This All Hands day clearly is a day where we go to Tmobile Stores to Wash All our Hands for FREE (with a new 2 year contract).  How can you all NOT know that?
