T-Mobile’s September “All Hands Day” Another Day Of Steep Discounts, New Mobile Broadband Product?

While a number of sites have seriously mistaken our story as “evidence” that I am suggesting the iPhone 5 is the cause for this meeting, that isn’t actually the case. For the record, that “suggestion” came in the same sentence as saying T-Mobile found water on mars so I would have hoped that it would have been taken with a little more ambiguity.

As it turns out, the sale is pretty much in line with exactly what we would expect from these “all hands days” given previous sales under the same purview. Current rumors and intel put this as another smartphone sale with most T-Mobile smartphones priced around $100 after rebates of $50, $100 or $200 depending on the overall value of the device.

One extra rumor we are hearing is the introduction of a mobile hotspot device that works on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42Mbps network. That is likely to be the only new product introduction during this special sale as we still have no indication devices like the Samsung Galaxy S II or HTC Ruby have been moved up.

More importantly, let’s hope that T-Mobile recognizes once again that this deal should be available for both qualifying upgrades along with new and add-a-line customers. We’re digging for more info and we’ll bring it to you as soon as we can get our hands on it!

    I’m hoping that’s what happens free phones for even more plus customers

    • Someonewhoknows

      Not going to happen because A. T-Mobile no longer offers even more plus and B. in your decision to go with even more plus you opted out of handset discounts in favor of a lower monthly bill and optional smartphone data features

    I’m sorry to say this but if T-Mobile doesn’t get the iPhone 5 they will be obsolete by the end of the year.  It’s sad and I love T-Mobile but I will switch to Sprint if they get it.  Of course this is all here-say but if they do get it they can definitely put themselves back on the map.  There have been many leaks about Sprint getting the iPhone but only very few recently on T-Mobile getting it.  Since we are approaching the iPhone 5 debut we should be hearing more T-Mobile rumors if they are getting it.  I won’t be the only one leaving if they don’t get the iPhone.  So sick of these crappy Android phones that fall apart.

      If t-mobile doesn’t get the iphone 5 they will be obsolete by the end of the year? where you are you getting all of this made up information……oh thats right…you made it up. T-mobile has a ton of android phones, they have the Samsung galaxy coming out soon and WP7. They will not be obsolete by the end of the year.

      Based on what you’ve said, it sounds like you’re turning a very small problem with Android into a large one just so you feel better about running to an iPhone.

      There are so many great android phones. Do some research!

      BTW i own the HD7 and i think iphones are great but don’t kick android just because all your friends have an iphone and you want one too.

        All of T-Mobile’s Android phones are crap, that’s a fact!!!  I went through 3 myTouch 4G’s, 2 Galaxy S 4g’s, and 3 defective HTC Sensations.  All had obvious build defects.    My friend just got the T-Mobile G2 back in May and is having so many problems with it after getting her Gingerbread update.  I don’t think the Android platform is bad, I think its great but these phone manufacturers like HTC and Samsung and Blackberry really need to step it up when it comes to build quality.  That is why I’m switching.  

        • Guest

          But people like Samsung and LG make parts for your precious iphone so that reasoning is crap. It sounds like you are way to hard on your phones anyway. It doesn’t seem to matter who makes you will break it.

        • Bratty

          Making parts and actually assembling a quality product are two very different things. Maybe Samsung has a lower QA rate? I dont know but  it seems like your counter reasoning is..well…crap.

        Actually Deutsche Telekom the parent of T-Mobile said that the reason why they are not doing so well is because of the lack the iphone. I seen threads of people saying that they will leave if T-mobile does not get the iphone which has been true. T-mobile been losing customers so badly that AT&T tried to merge with them.  The European market of T-mobile is getting the iphone and Deutsche Telekom wants out of US market leaving T-mobile USA up against the big fish like AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. Sprint is now in fact getting the iphone on their unlimited data plans and the only thing to save T-mobile is to join the party. T-Mobile has said from time to time that their phones are iphone killers which has not happen. They said that HTC HD2 which is my phone that is the iphone killer.  True fact T-Mobile said that over one million of their customers are iphone users and they are selling mirco sims cards but why if they are not getting the iphone? Apple has reported to be testing the iphone 5 both Sprint and T-mobile. I personally think that Sprint iphone will lure away T-mobile customers they offer lower prices which is probably why they sued AT&T and T-mobile. They are probably afraid AT&T and T-mobile will probably lower their prices causes their customers to leave. If Sprint was smart they sit there with their mouths shut up and lowered their prices.  T-mobile needs to sell both iphone and android of their prices to stay afloat.

          WTF are you talking about?

          First of all, German T-mobile has had the iPhone for a long time.

          Second, when has Sprint ever sued T-mobile?

          Your entire post is mumbling and incoherent.

  • Aleale

    All the people saying they would leave tmobile if they get no iphone should be an alert to tmobile of how customers want this phone badly. I wish tmo would listen to customers more…then again I wouldnt mind most customers leaving tmobile…im sticking with them and its more 4g goodness for me…look at att with all the data problem they have…

    • Nearmsp

      Reason being, those who have experienced an iPad or Ipod want to now have the iPhone and waited patiently over 3 years now. If DT can give iPhones to Germans why not us Americans?

      • CRT24

        Uh……..do any of you think that Apple has anything to do with the decision?? I sincerely hope we do pick it up, not because it is a superior device but because a lot of customers want it…..even though when you ask them what they like about it, they respond “because its an IPhone”. So they really have no idea why they want it but they do and if T-Mobile is the only provider that doesn’t offer this device then it will be in a serious competitive disadvantage….time will tell

      your so dumb no company does that u probaly talked to them over the phone and agreed to better deal and didnt care about it and now your crying

      • Nearmsp

        I think he has a point there. I have 4 phones on my plan. I was planning to get a new on one of the lines and I was told your contract gets extended for everyone for 2 years not just the line being upgraded. I said that would mean I would in perpetuity be on a life long contract unless I renewed all 4 phones on the same day. I chose not to upgrade my phone. So yes, things have been going weird since T-mobile thought they are almost part of the evil AT&T empire and do not need to behave as an ethical European company, who have been conditioned to behave ethically because of severe penalties imposed by the various Ombudsmen, unlike tap on the wrist here in the US by toothless regulators.

        • CRT24

          T-mobile has never required a contract extension on all lines if you only upgrade one phone…..only if you change to a different family plan which requires a contract will all of the lines be extended…….so nothing is new or weird with this and you either were given wrong information or misunderstood what you were told.

        • mrmiddl

          you sir are correctamundo!!!

        • Commonsense

          It would be completely illegal for a company to make changes to a contract without your approval, either in writing or that long script they read you over the phone for your consent. I’m sure you are like many other customers and just tune out the person on the phone (or in person) reading the contract terms to you as you change your plan. Do yourself a favor and read what you’re signing or listen to what you are agreeing to and you won’t feel misled.

    I’m going to be so upset if T-Mobile doesn’t get the iPhone 5, I’m stuck with this family plan with around 13+ lines, and I really want an iPhone. For me, I don’t like android, I just don’t like the software of it.

      I’m with you and Tmobile isn’t the only crappy company around. I’ve been a loyal customer to my gas company for 12 years (not one late payment) and they still haven’t given me a free water heater! And, don’t get me started on Toyota; owned 3 trucks and a minivan. You’d think the dealership would at least offer me a half price Prius or something… Really what is a $300 or $1,000 or $10,000 loss for these companies in order to keep me happy?

  • Love my green robot.

    I do not get why people want a Iphone so bad.  My mother and brother have them..  My MyTouch kicks their arse..   Pisses them off a lot cause they pay 75 dollar more a month just so they could have the iphone with ATT.

    Now I will admit I wish I had a Ipad..  they both have one of those also and they are awesome.

    • Anonymous

      No disrespect to the MyTouch, but T-Mobile would make waaaaaaaaaaaay more money off of selling the iPhone than any MyTouch.

  • NBIQ

    TMO had to do something “news worthy” (phone sales, new plans, hotspot…) around the time the new iPhone 5 is being announced/available Early October. That is Big News no matter who you are, or what phone you currently rock. PR/Marketing departments are tricky, they never want you to forget about them….

    But this doesn’t mean in any way that the iPhone would not be coming to TMo this year (or soon). Both TMo managers and TMo customer want it to happen.
     
    I think that the confusion being caused by the ATT/DK dance-of-death will only delay the iPhone on Tmo. Once these two lovers divorce, I fully expect to see the iPhone come to TMOBILE USA.

    For some of us the iphone 5 is not a big deal, but it is a big deal to the majority. This will be a terrible decision on T-mobile’s part if they dont get the iphone 5. A lot of people are going to be upset and then T-mobile’s value would decrease tremendously. Be smart T-Mobile, give the majority of the people what they want.

      I don’t think it’s really up to T-Mobile as I’m sure they would have had the iPhone long ago if they could have. Not saying one way or another whether or not they’re getting it…just saying.

    • guest

      To make sales, TMO isn’t getting the iPhone until ATT is figured out.  If they were getting the iPhone they wouldn’t just pop up with it, they would advertise for it, what do they have to gain from keeping that a secret?  I think that they just don’t want to discount too many handsets so they don’t advertise these weird sales and just let people walk into them. I hope that ridiculous  priced Bold goes on sale.
