T-Mobile Posts COO Statement Regarding End Of AT&T Talks And The Future

In light of the T-Mobile, AT&T deal ending, T-Mobile USA has issued a statement on their company blog regarding the deal and their unchanged focus. The obvious question right now is, “What does this mean for T-Mobile USA customers?” We’ll just get right to the answer:

Dear T-Mobile Customers:

By now I am sure you have seen media reports that AT&T and Deutsche Telekom (DT) have mutually decided to terminate their agreement for AT&T to acquire T-Mobile USA. This announcement effectively ends the acquisition process launched March 20.

What does this mean for T-Mobile USA customers? Our focus is unchanged: make the latest mobile products and services affordable for everyone.

And there are many reasons to choose T-Mobile as your wireless provider:

  • Great Value. We’re offering our best plan ever – 2 lines for $49.99 each that includes voice, text and data (including 2GB at full-speed) on each line with a new 2-year agreement. We also now offer aMonthly4G no annual contract plan that gives you unlimited talk, text, and web (including 100MB at full-speed) for $50.  
  • Compelling Products.  We offer a great line-up of 4G smartphones. We continue to rapidly expand our selection of amazing and affordable 4G smartphones, tablets and other devices that make mobile internet service easy and affordable. This holiday, we have cutting edge smartphones including the 42 Mbps-capable HTC Amaze™ 4G and the Samsung Galaxy S™ II. In January, we will begin selling the Lumia 710, the first Windows Phone from Nokia for as low as $49.99 after mail-in rebate with a 2-year agreement on a qualifying plan
  • America’s Largest 4G Network – now faster than ever. Whether you need driving instructions that are fast enough to keep up with your car, or want to stream a full-length movie uninterrupted, our 4G network delivers. We have expanded our 4G coverage to more than 200 million people in 208 markets and doubled speeds for nearly 180 million Americans in 163 markets.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you, we appreciate your business and we will continue to focus on earning your loyalty every day.

Regards,

Jim Alling

    I love TMO, but it definitely has a lot of problems that won’t be solved anytime soon.  DT is going to take that breakup fee and not reinvest in the US.  Tmo, a founding partner of the Android Alliance cant even secure rights to the Galaxy Nexus or any other decent phone aside from the SII.  Lumia 710?  A joke.  Come on Tmo – step up your game!!  

  • Anonymous

    The biggest concern for T-Mobile needs to be the lost good will of existing and potential customers. All they have been hearing since March is that T-mobile will be gobbled up by At&t. Now that this is not happening they have to fight the perception that they are not a major player or a company in danger of folding or being sold off. The next six months will be very crucial.

  • Lu

    it’s like the higher ups are so irrelevant to what the consumers in the USA want…nobody cares about the Lumia, focus on getting the iPhone, focus on getting your CS to what it once was, as a company, there are things going good that we can only grow on, great plans, good service, but it’s time to switch things up…enough of the Carly commercials, let the consumer know there’s a real change…Verizon sounds confident in there advertisement, as we should too…T-Mobile is known to be cheap, which is great, but also bad in a sense if your not promoting the good aspects of the network as well to a worldwide audience in a convincing way.  I don’t need little elf’s telling me how great 4G is.

          I’ve said it many times. It isn’t the most technologically advanced phone these days. It doesn’t have the biggest screen or the fastest processor, but it does what people want it to, and does it easily.

    At&t plan A buy Tmobile for spectrum   FAILED
    At&t plan B buy Dish Network/Spectrum  They can make an offer you can’t refuse???

    • Anonymous

      that’s an interesting comment. 

      Now that the deal is broken up, AT&T is in a better position to pick up Dish Network spectrum and cut a deal than T-mobile USA.  It would basically be what Verizon did for the cable companies.

      Although i guess that’s ok now that AT&T and T-mobile USA have an expanded roaming agreement???

      • Anonymous

        Dish wants to get into the wireless game, so I do not see them parting with their S band Spectrum, but they might part with the 700mhz spectrum for the right price. I still think the deal will be between Dish and Tmobile.  Dish has already said they wanted to partner with us if the deal failed. 

  • BigDGP

    How great would a TMobile commercial showing Carly “breaking up” with a guy that represents AT&T. She could work a whole mocking “It’s not you it’s me” line….

        It would be amusing, but it would be a waste of time. Some of us would get the joke, but it would go over most people’s heads.

        In a way, I hate the Carly commercials. T-Mobile needs to attract customers by improving its network, providing better service, and offering more to its business customers. Not by wooing pimply faced teenage boys with its ad campaign featuring a pretty girl.

        • Anonymous

          Regardless. Once TMob has a new descent phone out (quad core Samsung Tranparent 3d phone) I will sign a new two year contract.  Until then.. Ill wait.

    • http://twitter.com/SocalFrank1 Frank Alvarez

      I think Carly should fire a laser cannon at the AT&T Death Star, but that won’t happen until after she gets her $3Billion

  • Dpro

    Wow somebody needs to fire that moron. LOL None of the above reasons are compelling reasons for someone to pick T Mobile over others. Ya if you get two lines you get them for $50 each. LOL What about the individual who does not want two lines. LOL Oh and $50 unlimited with 100 mb fast network access. hahaha watch how fast the average Android user goes over 100 MB.

    The only positive thing in that list is the expanded network due to the new spectrum they are getting. Really  T Mobile you are not going to change anything with the statements above. Time to step up and make some bold moves.

  • Melissa

    U know what i find REALLY amusing and funny? That i have been on this website for sooo long and everytime someone says they have at&t or verizon people that have t-mobile on here always gang up on them and tell them stuff like good luck using ur verizon LTE and going over that 2GB limit ur gonna go over it really fast. They also tell the same thing to at&t users because they have a 2GB data plan. I seen it happen many times i dont know why they do that if t-mobiles throthles them to edge speed anyways after 2Gb .Now that i look at t-mobiles plans there complete crap worse than the others yea there cheap when compared to other companies but u get what u pay for. I mean seriously 100mbs of data?. Cmon . ..thats ridiculous i use WAY more than that on my evo in 1 day without watching videos just by browsing regular web pages i dont have t-mobile i dont have them i have sprint which sucks i admit and i was thinking of switching to t-mobile but not anymore after i saw this. I think i might go to verizon and take advantage of there 4GB data pan for 30 bucks before the special goes away ,Btw i know a few people on verizon and at&t that have unlimited data plans so they never have to worry about going over.

    • Joe

      U = You
      everytime = every time
      ur = you’re
      throthles = throttles
      there = they’re
      there = their

      It’s hard to take someone seriously when they use text speech and incorrect grammar. If you have Sprint, why are you on a T-MOBILE page? 

      • Melissa

        O hun trust me if i had a laptop and th time of the world i would write correctly but its hard writing something on a phone especially when you have sum huge azz nails like me which i berly put on yesterday wich btw look awesome on me. And u only have 30 minutes of lunch break. I have to time it and its hard because i do take my time eating and i went to the restroom and i only had like 5 minutes or less to write what i wrote above. And i would always come on here because i been wanting to switch to t-mobile for the longest. Because sprint sucks in my house i get bad reception while t-mobile ,at&t and verizon get better reception all over my house but i think i will go to verizon.

      Tmobiles prices and plans give more for less period. Don’t believe the hype.

      But I think you probably grew up on hype Mellisa, so I know u can’t help it.

    • Tbyrne

      Then I guess the question is, why are you still coming in here if AT&T & Verizon are so much better? I find that REALLY odd!

    • Princeasi

      I have the 5g plan from Tmobile

  • Enoel69

    I was one of the 30% or so who felt in their gut the FCC and DOJ will not let this anti competitive bid to buy out Tmo happen. I am pleased Att has finally seen the writing on the wall…way past due. For those who think Tmo will not make it…i again say they are wrong. Tmo will soon up their HSPA+ to 84Mbps…that together with the continued increase of their HSPA+21/ HSPA+42 foot print to various cities will keep things moving along till they chart their own path to LTE. This maybe thru a partnership, go it alone if DT decides to use the breakup fee plus more $$$ OR my fav Google buying Tmo or partner with them…or even Dish Network with their AWS Spectrum. But what i expect those on the higher ups on Tmo to do right now…is to bring in the Marquee devices 1) Galaxy Nexus 3G/HSPA+ 32GB for Android fans 2) iPhone 4S for iOS fans..that is if Apple doesn’t ask some outrageous sum like they did with Sprint. BUT THE G-NEX IS A MUST…MAKE IT HAPPEN NOW.

    • MIKEEEEE

      G-MOBILE? has a good ring to it.

      • Realcool2000

        Sure does! Hope it happens, like that for the real G’s. But then they would have to kick all the fake G’s off the network ( and hopefully off the forum lol ).

        But don’t worry Mikeeeee if that happens we will still be here :).

        Go G-Mobile.

    how about some more coverage.

    how about some more rugged ANDROIDS?

    how about differentiating t-mo as the company that doesn’t need apple and shut off all bootleg iphones on the network.

    when t-mo first bought voicestream their phones were all european spec.

    how about making all t-mobile phones provisioned for all voice and data bands in all the countries that t-mo is in?

    so anyone can use a t-mo phone with a t-mo simcard wherever there is a t-mo signal?

    • Frank

      T-Mobile is having a hard time maintaining customers as it is. I can’t see them just arbitrarily telling the estimated 1,000,000 people using iPhones on their network that they’re not welcome and kicking them off.

      • Heisenberg

        And also, the T-Mobile customers who use iPhones are actually the most profitable to them.  They never need subsidized phone discounts, they use the EDGE network (which is cheaper than HSPA+), and they also rarely call in/stop in to T-Mobile seeing as they understand they’re using a non-supported device.

        If every one of T-Mobile’s customers used an unlocked iPhone, they would be far, far more profitable.

    • branden

       i second the idea of staying away from applephones and blocking them from our network!

      • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.singer Joseph Singer

        But have you considered GOY?

    • Dpro

      First off If you kicked people using unlocked Iphones off the network. You effectively be going against everything else in your post.LOL

      Seriously dude get over your hate of the Iphone. T Mobile could use the Iphone and it would be to everyones advantage as it would cause a massive influx of contract customers and cash so they could expand and build an LTE network.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.singer Joseph Singer

      How about free coffee and donuts all the time at all T-Mobile stores?

    One thing we all need to remember people is that Tmobile (DT) was in COHOOTS with ATT to be bought out.  It’s not a victory for Tmobile but a victory for us customers and their employees. 

    • Frank

      I agree, at least for the short term.  In the long run, we don’t know what’s going to happen. DT still wants to sell, so now we have to wait and see what other offers come.

    I know it’s different tech but Sprint sounds like the partner available for the dance right now…..Tmo has been left out in the wind and the above statement doesn’t really impress me, I know I know, iphone is not the top phone anymore, but look how many people buy that one phone…..that one ipad…..we talk android android android and yes I like android but when one phone and one tablet can contol millions of people then there is something there. How many android devices are needed to meet the sales of a single ipad or iphone launch? Where am I going with this? Either Tmo gets some marketing hook to catch people or they get the iphone and maybe they’ll stay afloat. I unfortunately don’t see that happening. I think that Tmo goes down, since they have never ever spent the $ that Verizon or ATT has ever put down for marketing.

  • Caseybea

    The family plan I have costs FAR LESS than anything any other competitor can offer- I have unlimited voice (yes, I actually talk on my phone!) – etc etc, all for a phenomenally affordable rate.   I have had nothing but great customer service contacts with T-Mobile support people.   The LAST thing I wanted to end up would have been an AT&T customer.

    Moving forward, I can’t predict what will happen.   It will be interesting.   It may even end up not being as good as things are now, we just don’t know.    But it’s NOT at&t, so no matter how I look at this, it’s a “win” for me as a customer.

    here’s to the future!

    No profit, no Tmo USA. 

  • Voiceofreason

    Now how about put some real backhaul into your network so those of us in 42 Mbps areas can at least hit 1 Mbps once and freakin’ while?

    I get full 4G signal and live/work in Southern Cali where we’re supposed to have 42 Mbps HSPA + but still get less optimal 3G speeds. 

    And for the love of God crank up the power on your AWS sites.  No reason to have only EDGE or GPRS service indoors with all that AWS spectrum.  

    • Jarrod

      I agree with you about getting edge inside but speed wise the only time I notice them being horrible is when there are a lot of people in one area like at a mall. Yesterday I was in town and the internet wasn’t working so I had to switch to edge to make it transfer data but other then that i average 1.5mbps to 3mbps and peak up to 10mbps on my, my touch 4G slide.

  • Andy

    David:

    Since AT&T wanted to end this is this quarter for tax purposes, that seems to mean if they can write it off, Tmobile is going to owe. (taxes work like Newton’s law) I wonder if DT would take the whole amount, and leave TMobile to pay the tax.  Be a bummer if they stiffed TMobile.  I just don’t think these amounts of money are not going to be taxed by Uncle Sam.

    I want a T-mobile iPhone

  • T-mobilesucks2012

    The ads are misinforming just like the company itself. If T-mobile did
    not get a iphone there was a reason for that. T-mobile is not At&t,
    Verizon or Sprint. It’s belongs in the same category as boost mobile, metro pcs and
    virgin mobile. If you want to prove me wrong first look at the “deal”
    T-mobile is offering on a pre-paid plan in comparison to their post paid
    plans, you will get your answer. This company is headed for failure and
    no one can stop it. I have been a customer for ten years, so newbies
    refrain from talking out of your a**.

    • Anonymous

      Cellular South sells the iPhone genius.   This puts your theory as a waste of existence.  It’s completely a technological issue with Apple waiting for a cheaper method for every iPhone to support T-Mobile’s AWS on one chip.  They will probably not make a new iPhone just to support T-Mobile’s 33 million customers.  The iPhones sold on Cell South (C-Spire) and offered to US Cellular are the same CDMA iPhones running on Verizon and Sprint.

      • Anonymous

        Correct me if I’m wrong, but I do remember reading something about t-mobile beginning to use 1900 bands as well. If they supported these bands nationally, would it enable them to use the same iPhone as At&t?

        • Greg

          I read something about that but don’t know the particulars. It would seem to me, though, that it would be cheaper to come to an agreement with Apple to put a TMobile capable radio in the iPhone than it would be to reconfigure and reband a nationwide network to work with one phone.

    • suckthis.

      Because prepaid means the business is going to fail? I don’t think boost, metro, or virgin are doing horribly. There are a lot more people in this market that just want a reasonable priced phone and plan than teenagers that have to have the omgwtfbbq latest iPhone.  The company might be heading for ruin but not for any of the reasons you gave. I have been a customer for 12 years so newb please refrain from taking out of your a**.

    I read that T Mobile is in court as they gve out their customer’s personal infomation. This is against the law no matter how they justify it. They claim that they were harassed and then gave it out. Give me a break. It is no one fault ,but T Mobiles.

  • Panda

    Been with T-mobile since 1999, that said, it seems that every time I speak with a customer service rep the service is worse and worse. Used to  be that the customer service was the best and now it has fallen below Sprint’s which is horrific. Also has anyone noticed that since the merger talk started we have lost all kinds of services that used to be included in our plan?  I am talking about tethering and hotspot with my internet service.  I got that included when I signed up for my first smart phone in May and now I find that it is an extra charge.  How fair is that?  Unfortunately I did sign a two year contract for a cruddy phone that doesn’t work correctly.  Has anyone else had problems with the mytouch 4 G?
