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 told ya’ll it wasnt an Iphone 5. At this point tmobile isnt getting the Iphone 5… they are going to stick with the samsung sg2 phone with that ugly UI thats an exact copy cat of IOS. Don’t mean to burst your bubble, but I have a feeling the iphone 5 is only going to sprint, att, and verizon

      Deep down, most ppl knew this promo didn’t involve the iphone, but u can’t knock wishful thinking. It would be nice if tmo got it soon. I don’t understand why tmo wouldn’t carry it. We all know Apple is bossy, but tmo isn’t in the position to decline carrying the iphone. Tmo would make a killing with the iphone!

        If that the case then no iphone for T-mobile then I will be cancelling my contract going to Verizon. T-Mobile been struggling for about five years. They are losing customers left and right. T-mobile customers been waiting patiently and they had enough

    Does TmobileUSA really think customers will be lining up, given no notice or hype, except promotion by an occasional tweet, facebook post or banner ad?

      It’s still a bit early and maybe they’ll market it correctly but I can totally see T not doing much marketing for this and expecting it to be huge.

    BS. Just admit that that was your first speculation and move on. We all know how badly you want the iPhone on Tmobile, and that is fine, but don’t try to act like you were not seriously speculating it. Now if you wanted to say that speculation regarding the possibilty of it being about the AT&T takover bid was ” in the same sentence as saying T-Mobile found water on mars”, then you’d at least be honest.

      “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.”

      Yeah that really screams, iPhones coming. People read what they want to read and ignore the facts.

      I agree. Much as we are hoping to get iPhone 5 so we can stay with the network most of us have been in for years, more likely than not the decision to take GS2 or iPhone 5 on Sprint or Verizon is coming soon. If the iPhone 5 looks anything like the “artists rendering” of the device on Macrumors web site, the decision will be easy for me.

    I think part of the reason people took your joke about the iphone 5 so seriously is because evidence of water has actually been found on mars recently (I’m HUGELY into Astronomy by the way :D ).  Here’s the links:

    Just read on Bloomberg, that Sprint will be the only provider providing unlimited data on their iphone plans next month. They have also postponed a 4G competing device to keep the space open for iPhone 5 sales. I never thought I might go to Sprint one day. But I might just move 2 of my family smart phones on to Sprint.  As 6 year BB user, either GS2 or iPhone 5 will do. I am hoping the device on Sprint is dual CDMA/GSM so that i can use it when overseas. I still am hoping T-mobile gets the iPhone 5. If GS2 had come a couple of months back, I probably would have locked in. It will be hard to resist the option of iPhone now that networks other than AT&T and expensive Verizon offer it.

  • this is all tmobile’s trick to fool those who dont know about new devices. on that day they wil give discount on galaxys4g, the g2x and mytouch 4g, all for $100 with 2 year new contract, but they are old device, eysterday   at tmobile store, i saw someone with g2x phone, he said he gave it $150  with new 2 year contract, he was bragging me about how this phone is brand new and the latest android phone., i told him this phone came about almost 2 yrs ago, he said no, it came just last week and that was told  to him by the store rep, lol

    If this holds true, great! (hope for an iPhone, there was discovery of proof of water, but I think someone already spotted that)…

    Won’t drive sales to new folks, but it will get the loyalists in….who want a new device, but won’t drive sales uber high….  While the devices are good, T mobile really needs to revamp long term strategy…bring back the ‘give away the device away’ (pay tax and activation). 

    • DreamOfElise

      T-mobile, for far too long, was a small competitor. Now that we are a “big fish” we need to stop giving things away for free. It sets all the wrong expectations and causes people to feel entitled to things. People need to learn that if we want our network to compete with the other “big fish”, we have to put money into it and not expect handouts.

      • BigMixxx

        the problem is, while t mobile is does have competitive pricing, there are still better options on other networks.  Take for example, the G2x, while a BEAST of a phone, T mobile wants between 150 and 199 (Giving it away from on tmobile.com the other day) in store.  The comparable, yet gimmicky device, LG  thrill 4g, is 100 bucks on ATT…

        We MUST acknowledge the iPhone and accept it as the differentiator. Kids are screaming “I want an iPhone”, adults want simplicity yet something fascinating and iphone offers that”.  While I’m not a fan of the iPhone (I’ve had 2 in my history of phones), a lot of the population of users of phones are.  T-mobile needs a release of the iPhone to stay competitive OR do something drastic to keep the loyalist loyal and attract new business; that offering is in Device technology that is BOTH cheap and good or plans that differentiate it from the competition.  and most importantly, TELL the PUBLIC ABOUT IT.

        the ONLY choices left are to really give away the farm, or at least the smaller chickens and STEEPLY cut device prices.  T mobile really needs to give away the farm for commitment

      • JT

        Finally someone with some sense.  All I ever read is people complaining about this and that or I’m not getting this for free.  I have checked Sprint and Verizon and to get the same plan it’s about 50% higher.  Looks to me that Tmobile is the only one to have incredible deals especially their rate plans

        Lol it’d be nice, but not gonna happen. They need to make money somehow.

        Someone on the Tmobile forums posted the other day why it won’t happen probably :
        With 33,000, 000 customers, they pulled in about $1, 200,000, 000 last year. Big numbers but when you break that down it’s between $30-40 per person per year. Figure they give you an extra $100 off on a phone and they’ve just gone from making $40 off a customer over a year to losing $60.

    This offer is most likely for new and existing customers just like the buy one get one and the fathers day promotion, existing customers won’t be left out tmobile selling smartphones at 100.00 after rebate isn’t necessarily going to entice the amount of new customers a change of scheduling for employees would need!

  • Here is a really good question, I seem to have lost track when they shuffled their plans again for no damn good reason. What happened to the Even More Plus Plans? You used to be able to sign up for those no questions asked, and it was a regular account… I am going to assume they are going to call their new promos on the 24th… “Even More Classic Plus and Even More More Value Plus Plus” Also they will announce that they have updated their BlackBerry Bold 9900 for better reception and now it will say 4G+H+3G+3.5G= ..|.. bars of reception… AT&T PLEASE WRITE A BIGGER CHECK TO THE GOV AND SAVE US!

    Might be a big way to get even more plus customers to go into those 2 year value plans by offering the free upfront cost for any phone , then paying off the rest over 20 months.

    This is my thinking. The iPhone 5 is released on 1st October. By now T-mobile knows for sure if they are getting or not. More likely they are not getting one. In that case, they want to push the GS2 with a deep discount and lock up their customers who are out of contract. So that makes me think, I would probably have to consider that option over a sprint iPhone 5 and take a decision do I lock myself in, or should I  go for sprint when the iPhone 5 comes.

    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.

          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.

          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.

          I loved the solution of being, here use this ugly accessory that makes your phone fat, instead of HW fix, everyone accepted it like it was normal.

        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.

        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

        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.

    How about a freaking sale for non qualified upgrades so sick of the 2 yr bullshit by cell companies. Been with T-Mobile ten yrs and that doesn’t mean squat.

    • CO_yeti

      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.

    Is this only for new customers/add a line or is it for existing customers for upgrades as well?

  • 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.

  • derek 21

    has any on1 considered they could be doing this in preparation for iphone stock i mean really it’s not really the holiday season  yet and back to school is over why else would they be discounting these devices, the gs2 and ruby have nothing to do with it

    • 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.

        Ummm…. “values”?  In case none of your former co-workers told you, the “values” have disappeared.  They’re not talked about, and have been painted over on the walls of the call centers.  They’ve been replaced with the new culture of “Resolve, Sell, Grow”.
