T-Mobile’s iPhone Marketing Campaign Blitz Kicks Off Thursday As Store Reps Finalize Training

Screen Shot 2013-04-09 at 11.57.37 AM

As T-Mobile employees wind down their training for the iPhone 5 launch hour nears, we’re ready to see T-Mobile unveil it’s reportedly “massive” iPhone advertising campaign. Expect to see the words “screaming fast” play a major part as the ads begin Thursday night. We’re even going way, way out on a limb as there’s a rumor swirling around that T-Mobile made a major ad buy between 835 and 840 local time tomorrow evening. I’d definitely take that last part with a grain of salt, but if it’s true it represents a very aggressive marketing move for T-Mobile. Regardless of the what and when, there is no question tomorrow night marks the start of the iPhone campaign on the Magenta network as noted in the April calendar image below.

So what other goodies are contained within this gallery? Nothing to jump up and down for, but there’s a look at the tickets employees will use for customers showing up early to hold devices while in line, along with another breakdown of the differences between the existing iPhone 5 and the T-Mobile iPhone 5 releasing this Friday. But wait, that’s not an all as the carriers distribution strategy is shown with more than 240k T-Mobile iPhone 5 units being dispersed to company owned-retail stores for Friday morning.

As for availability overall, existing customers can buy one iPhone device per phone number in a 14 day period, regardless of full price or with EIP. Non T-Mobile customers can buy iPhones at the “Phone Only price” and are limited to two iPhone 5 devices per transaction.

With the MetroPCs vote moved back to April 24th, Friday now belongs solely to the iPhone launch for T-Mobile and I know I’m eager to see how first-day sales go.  The release of the iPhone as part of a trio of flagship smartphones (Galaxy S 4, HTC One) will likely go a long way to impacting T-Mobile’s second quarter numbers alongside the launch of the company’s UNcarrier plans. Let’s hope the first of the three releases start offs with a bang.

    David. Since I’m the first to post on this article, can I get a free iPhone for my Wife?

    • E Tutto Bene

      I wish the 12th was here already. I want my phone so bad.

      • Justin

        Me too I can’t wait to trade in this Nexus 4 I’m calling off work so I can be the first at the door.

        • E Tutto Bene

          I pre-ordered my phone since the stores will not have the 32 and 64 versions. I ordered a white 64….and plan to fill it up by the end of the month with great music and movies……come on 12th of April…

          you have one day… ONE DAY!!! can you feel it yet?! – D

        • sergio r

          Preordered a 32gb version, im excited

  • Tommy Tom

    And one for me also? Please! !

  • graywolf323

    I’m just waiting for it to go up on the Apple store :)

    • Austin Warren

      You sure its gonna be the same price?

      • hinduguy

        Yes but you have to go through their financing option from their bank and they give you a $70 credit after 6 months of payments. So at the end of the day you need good credit.

        • Austin Warren

          Yeah I’d rather just buy from t mobile. Don’t want to deal with that lol

        • hinduguy

          But there will be a difference. From my understanding if you get the phone from Apple the phone is factory unlocked out of the box, and if you get it from T-mobile it is only unlocked when you pay off the device.

          I personally have placed a pre-order with overnight shipping so it looks like it will get it tomorrow from the order status page. This way I can trade in my old T-Mobile phone which is valued at $100 for trade in value.

        • mdosu

          what phone are you trading in btw?

        • eddydrizzle

          I don’t know what phone he’s trading in, but I traded my gs3 in for 188.

        • hinduguy

          Its a LG Optimus L9 got it a few months ago when i swiched over to T-Mobile becasie Verizon was just way too expensive for 4 line with data. Got midrange phone because it was already out the iPhone was coming, and and getting a prepaid phone and putting a value plan sim card was cheap so I only ended up paying a $100 for phone to use it for like three months not too bad.

        • mdosu

          not bad for a mid-range phone. I sold my HTC One S for $250 on ebay. I’m not getting a iphone5, but I did buy a Note 2. One S got a $100 trade in offer…

        • hinduguy

          I have tried to to sell the phone on ebay, but I have just not been able to sell the device at price gives any real value for the device after ebay and shipping feeds.

        • mdosu

          Yes, you’re correct. BTW, for TMobile’s EIP, you also need good credit too, otherwise you’ll have to put down a higher downpayment. So in short, its just much easier to buy through T-Mobile…I don’t know why OP will buy through Apple.

        • hinduguy

          I agree it will be much easier to buy from T-Mobile and everything will just come from on bill at the end of the month. The only reason I can think of why people would want the from from Apple would be if they want the phone unlocked right away, Apple Store Gift Card, or just T-Mobile store is sold out and they want one right away.

        • mgldan

          Another reason: I want to stay on the $30/mo 5 GB, 100 min plan, but buying from TMo (at least online) requires me to sign up for a postpaid plan. Obviously I can cancel after the first month, but that too is a hassle.

        • Drewmann

          Yeah I don’t think this is right. I’m pretty sure apple is using Barclay credit union to cover the new prices. But apple isn’t making tmobile customers use their banks (Barclay) to buy the device. I’m pretty sure you can still finance the device through tmobile even if you buy it from the apple store. At least that’s what I heard..

    • mdosu

      why? you’ll have more steps to follow through to get the same price and for phone activation. Just sounds like a headache to me. Unless you have an Apple Store giftcard?

      • graywolf323

        I have a $10 gift card and Apple is going to carry the larger models in store, but even if they don’t Apple offers free overnight shipping on the iPhone while T-Mobile refuses to even give me free standard shipping

    • JustSaying

      If Apple doesn’t clearly show on their website that T-Mobile is a carrier that people can have the iPhone on I’m gonna be mad.. I hate how almost everywhere they only sell/promote the big 3 carriers and not 4!!

  • Julian Casio Santana King

    I have questions about this in carrier stuff.. 99 down for the phone 24, months of 20 dollars right? Say I decide I don’t like the Service . do they keep sending me a 20 dollar bill or Do they bill me for what’s left?

    • John

      You cancel, they bill the remainder immediately.

  • mreveryphone

    Haven’t touched an iPhone since my first generation, I might go into the store and check it out and see all excitement. Plus since we have lte here in Kansas City I’ll compare how it runs on the network with my note 2. So far I very seldom get full bars on lte. Never the less it should be a monumental day for t-mobile!

    • mdosu

      yeah, I have a Note 2 here in DC another LTE launch city. I pretty much don’t get LTE in the city and I’m even on the same damn block as a T-Mobile retail store! I do get it in my neighborhood, which isn’t helpful, but I’m either at home, close to home, or have sufficient HSPA+ speeds….this LTE launch as been pretty underwhelming.

      • JustSaying

        so how far does LTE reach in DC?? how are the speeds?

        • mdosu

          limited. I don’t go all over, but in Arlington, VA (Orange Line areas) it’s consistent LTE coverage. Downtown DC is spotty, suprisingly, K Street is horrible and sometimes I still drop to Edge. I haven’t tried Maryland sections yet, but I will be in Rockville, Germantown, Silver Spring areas this weekend, so I’ll test out there.

          LTE speeds are incredible “relatively”: 27 down 22 up…this is compared to HSPA+ speeds of 10 down 2 up. These numbers are horrible when compared to less cluttered T-Mobile cities, but the key is, there’s a 3x download improvement and 10x upload improvement, with good ping which improves usability of TMobile’s services in the area. Overall, since I pay dirt cheap prices on my value plan (2012 version), I can’t complain.

          I’m not sure if TMobile has an LTE coverage map on their site, likely not, b/c it’s expanding and it probably looks pitiful right now.

      • 21stNow

        It may be like the 1900MHz band refarm, where the suburbs did better than the city in the initial stages. When I checked the aiportal.de (?) site, most of the sightings were along the Capital Beltway. Likewise, I live right at the Beltway and saw LTE go live the night before the official announcement.

    • bleeew

      The Note 2 is faster than the iPhone in terms of LTE speeds. Since you have LTE I doubt it matters.

  • superg05

    I’m glad people are excited by this I hope it being t-mobile some measure of prosperity and good profits

  • Christopher_McG

    Anyone’s preorder-order status change yet? Here’s to hoping they ship on thursday!

    • http://twitter.com/SParKlngCyaNide SparklingCyanide

      I’m not getting one, but I am so excited about this that I almost feel as if I AM getting an iPhone 5! – D

    • Tony

      I got an update last night that it was shipped last night and should have it today.

      • Eric Stengrevics

        I don’t think you’re gonna have it before it is released…………

        • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

          You are correct sir.

        • hinduguy

          agreed

        • Zac

          It happens sometimes. If I’m Tmo I’d rather have my preorder folks get it a day early than a day late.

        • ChitChatCat

          Apple would rather than not happen. They are hardasses when it comes to release dates.

        • mdosu

          lol, oh well…at the end of the day, 1 day difference doesn’t matter… He may receive the phone today, take it in to a store, and the reps can tell him to come back tomorrow.

    • coolio93

      My pre order status hasnt changed and I ordered at 5AM on friday morning. CSR’s are absolutely CLUELESS. I really hope they ship today so that it arrives tomorrow. The whole point of a preorder is to get the phone shipped to you by release day.

      • John

        The reps aren’t clueless, they just have tools that tell them the only information that you already have. Kind of rude just because you don’t have the patience to wait or the intelligence to check for yourself.

        • coolio93

          John,

          My intention was not to sound rude. The CSR’s that I spoke with were very nice, but the fact is that they were clueless and each one that I spoke to told me a different story. I do not blame them, I blame the upper management that did not take out the time to properly train them before the pre-order launched. Some CSR’s that I spoke to said that the phone would ship yesterday, while others have said that I would receive it NEXT friday. I paid for a phone – yes thats fine and I can wait. However, I deserve to know a definite ship and deliver date so that I can make arrangements for someone to be home.

          The information that I already have is also conflicting. My order status page’s estimated delivery date has changed 3 times in the past 2 days. In that case, is it not proper for me to call in and figure out wth is going on?!

          Also, I believe that I am correct in saying that this phone launch is really exciting and having preordered the phone, I should receive it tomorrow. Thats the whole point of a pre-order.

          I did find it rude that you made that last comment without giving me a chance to elaborate my story. Labeling someone as having “less intelligence” is just not right….although I should have been more clear in my original post. For that, I apologize.

        • hinduguy

          Its easy to get worked up about it and I have also found it frustrating when I tried to place one pre-order I had found out I placed three because the system who so overloaded. I would be nice if when you called T-Mobile support and got the same answer for the same question no matter who you talked too. I don’t know if this is a training issue, or the reps are trying to be helpful and giving you the best unofficial information they have, but for me I see the T-Mobile support at the source of truth and that is annoying.

          I have gone through pre-orders at ATT&T and Verizon they always ship the device the day before so it arrives on the day of official release and shipping is normally free or much less then 24.99. I think over time the expectation what is a pre-orders has changed. In past it was to guarantee your place in line to the device and now its more you will get the device on the day of launch with out getting out leaving home or getting out of your boxers, briefs, boxer briefs, panties, g-string or thongs (trying to be inclusive to all gender and life styles).

          I think the at the end of of the day T-Mobile could have done a much better job of communicating the same information across all their outlets website, press release, retail store, and phone support. This is their first really big launch hopefully they will learn from it.

        • hinduguy

          John I agree with what you saying, and my experience with dealing with the call center is that they are very restricted on what they can do or what information they have around new devices. I have found they are the most helpful when you call them multiple times because the system escalates to you too more senior call center support reps. That was how I got free overnight shipping :-)

          At the end of the day they are just trying to do their job, in a company that is struggling to becoming profitable and going through a merger and down sizing that does not create high moral.

      • trife

        Enh, I have to disagree. Go on Amazon and pre-order a game or a music album. You’ll see an option to have your product in hand the day of release, or you can get it a few days later. The catch is that you have to pay extra in order to have it on your doorstep the day of the official release.

        So does that mean that those who opt to receive their item a few days after the official release didn’t get to pre-order? Nope. Just means they don’t care about getting it the day of release.

        When you ordered your iPhone there should’ve been an option for next day shipping. Couple that with the fact that T-Mobile’s own website notes that they’ll begin shipping today, and you can see why people have no reason to gripe and moan if they don’t receive their iPhone tomorrow.

        A pre-order is exactly what it sounds like–a chance to order/reserve an item before it officially goes on sale so you’re not left in the cold should that item sell out on release day. I feel like if folks would’ve done their homework first, there’d be a lot less complaining going on. TMO never guaranteed you’d have an iPhone in hand on April 12, so if it doesn’t happen, don’t be surprised. The only people that will be able to legitimately complain are those who opted for next day shipping and don’t receive their device tomorrow.

      • E Tutto Bene

        I agree.

    • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

      They do not start shipping until tomorrow.

      • trife

        That isn’t what T-Mobile.com says.

        • Christopher_McG

          Ya. I got my tracking info today!

    • hinduguy

      I got a tracking number, but the package has been handed to UPS yet just label has been generated. The system is staying it is shipping today. I ordered it with Overnight shipping so hopefully I will get it tomorrow, but I was able to get the call center to get it down to free overnight shipping :-)

  • Whiskers

    “Screaming Fast”

    Well i hope T-Mobile releases LTE on the 12th in full coverage where their 3G/HSPA+ is up a running to back that up , otherwise there is going to be some very pissed off customers bouncing back and forth between Edge and LTE spots .
    If it’s anything like the refarming coverage i’m screwed again because that’s a joke at this present time , very spotty .
    I’m happy T-Mobile is now offering the Apple products but if i do buy an iphone i think i will wait a few months for the next one coming out and see how good the coverage is.

    • Eric Stengrevics

      You do realize that the new T-Mobile iPhone is fully compatible with the network right? You don’t have to rely on refarmed markets anymore. So whether its LTE or HSPA+42, your speeds will be plenty fast.

      • John

        wow, someone gets it. Thank you.

      • mdosu

        Yeah, reframe is irrelavant, but LTE coverage is pretty spotty in my launch city (DC metro)

        • Whiskers

          wow , someone gets it. thank you.

    • David Lebron

      Did you not see that it has HSPA+ bands as well? It’ll have the same speed and coverage as all other T-Mobile 4G devices – which is faster than some LTE speeds on other carriers.. If people deal with iPhones on Sprint, T-Mobile won’t have a problem at all.

      • Whiskers

        That would only be good if you can get constant 3G/HSPA+ and not in limited areas where you drive 20 minutes outside a major city and it’s Edge or GPRS signal . So unless T-Mobile improves it’s total coverage and LTE has a stronger signal covering more areas you will drop back to Edge regardless if it’s a Iphone , Android , or a WP .
        So those HSPA+ bands don’t mean crap if the signal strength sucks no matter what device you use.
        Now take all those New Iphone customers jumping over to T-Mobile and they receive this kind of service , what word do you think will travel out of their mouths and across the internet faster than lightning if that’s the service they receive ?
        Will not look good for T-Mobile if the new iphone gets spotty service no matter how cheap the rates are.

        • David Lebron

          You said you hope not has HSPA+… changing your tune because you didn’t read and git called on it?? Lol read

  • kev2684

    I hope they light up a couple more markets tomorrow! or tonight at 8 if they really do TV ads. 5 bucks it would be on FOX

  • Josue

    I just hope people dont camp out on the stores lol

    • eddydrizzle

      From what I’ve heard at my local store, they expect that to happen.

    • Jake

      I’m showing up an hour early, but it’s up posed to be 30 degrees so ill sit in my car and get in line 15 minutes before they open.

  • GwapoAko

    Tmobile is still not on Apple’s website..

    • Jake

      And it won’t be until tomorrow when the phone is OFFICIALLY on sale.

      • GwapoAko

        Bwahahaha I thought it is already Friday!!!

    The last slide has something about a loyalty upgrade offer. Does anyone know what that is?

    • Brock Lesnar

      Yes, I’m very curious about this, as well

    • jeebus

      I just got off the phone with the Loyalty Department and the lady told me that if you’ve been with the company for 4+ years, you qualify for the Loyalty offer which is a $50 credit to your bill if you have either a)a recent migration fee or b)a remaining installment left on an EIP.

      • Camille

        Thanks for the info. I’ve been with the company for 10 years, but don’t have either of those. I’m already on a value plan and don’t have anything financed on IEP. Oh well. Still going to pick up a phone in the morning.

  • Luis Rodriguez

    Anyone live in the Cambridge, Massachusetts area? The wait will not be long for a phone. They have 8 registers and plenty of reps. T-Mobile near alewife…

    • sidekicker89

      holy cow 8 registers?!? my local store has 2 lol. Does your store have the new design? I wish ours did!

      • Luis Rodriguez

        It’s playground but GDC is coming sooooon. :)

      • unknown

        Because it is not a corporate store it only has 2.

  • Jake

    240,000 iPhone 5′s spread out over 50 states with MULTIPLE retail stores seems like a horribly low amount for this launch.

    • John

      I concur

    • g2a5b0e

      I was also thinking the same. We’re talking less than 50 states, though, because there are some states where T-Mobile just doesn’t exist, but I can’t imagine there will be any left past day 2 or 3. Most places will be sold out day 1.

    • mdosu

      sounds about right for an initial batch of the lower storage version. Plus, there’s still the supply online for the larger storage versions which has better profit margins for TMo and Apple. That, plus the existing ATT and unlocked versions already on the network points to the theory that iPhone5 is already at a point of over-satuation. The telling sign will be how many TMo sells, vs it’s competition , when the next generation comes out.

  • bleeew

    Wheres the iPhone marketing at?

  • sidekicker89

    I hope all the store reps make a lot of money tomorrow! :) well deserved after waiting this long! Hopefully they have time to get on Tmonews or twitter to give us real time updates of what is happening in the stores. Good luck, everyone! :D

    • mdosu

      problem is, there’s an over-saturation iPhone at this point. TMo and Apple will see sales, but not fantastic eye popping sales we saw with the past generation. The telling sign will be how many TMo sell, vs it’s competition can , when the next generation comes out.

  • JB

    I’m not getting an iPhone, but I’m SUPER excited for this launch, as if I am getting one. This is very good for T-Mobile. Magenta is hitting HARD in 2013. LTE, UNcarrier plans, Flagships from HTC, Samsung, Blackberry and now Apple? GTFOH. All they need now is to continue their relationship with Google and the Nexus line, and a flagship from Sony and Nokia, T-Mobile will be THE place for phone selection. Or maybe I’m over reaching here. :-)

  • conservative_motorcyclist

    How early should I get to the store? I am gunna pick one up for my Fiancee, she doesn’t know it yet… :P

  • c

    While I haven’t heard anything about the iPhone specifically, here in Houston Tmobile has pretty much taken over a radio station with all of their advertising. There is a commercial at least twice an hour and they sponsored an hour of “ad-free” music this morning. They are touting the new plan and telling everyone to come in to a store this weekend.

    • JB

      That makes total sense, being that Houston is one of the first few LTE markets. My friend actually told a similar story to yours. T-Mobile is heavily advertising via radio spots in KC area this morning.

  • sidekicker89

    If you listen to 106.1 KISSFM on the radio, T-Mobile is the sponsor for the day! :) They are promoting the uncarrier move by limiting other commercials on the station.

  • Mark

    They made a major ad buy FRIDAY night? Not the way to maximize eyeballs. They should have bought for tonight during Idol and followed up during Glee (where they already have product placement).

    • kev2684

      i was under the impression that the ads were to air tonight. but the article says tomorrow. nothing hits 2.0 on demo during fridays -_-

      • JB

        Networks overall, no. Indvdivual shows on Friday evenings can hit close to 2.0, Late night talk shows hit closer to 3 on the norm, but aside from that, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some T-Mobile marketing during Glee (and other shows where they have a promotonal tie-in). I susupect they will get a little more agressive on the CW (where I generally see the bulk of T-Mobile ads).

        future wise, I wouldn’t be surpised if Apple themselves do a little marketing on T-Mobile’s behalf (like they did when the iPhone released on the other carriers) plus basball season just started up not too long ago, with their partnership with the MLB, I would be floored if T-Mobile didn’t take advantage of that!

    • Camille

      Even though the article says tomorrow, if you look at the last slide (the one with the partial calendar), it says that national advertising starts today.

      • http://tmonews.com David

        Sorry, the post went up slightly after midnight which wasn’t my intention. Todays ad buy is Thursday.

        • Camille

          Thanks for the clarification!

        • Mark

          Agreed… thanks (and thanks for updating the story to clarify).

  • NaN

    I hope people aren’t camping outside T-Mobile for this! I will have to drive past my local T-Mobile at night and check.

  • weezy

        Hey David, while we’re on the subject of advertising, any updates on Major League Baseball’s use of T-Mobile when calling the bullpen? I know that they were going to do that but I have yet to see anyone use T-Mobile over the Verizon branded landline phones in the dugout. I know that T-Mobile is sponsoring the All-Star Game Fanfest in NYC this July but haven’t seen anything more (ie. during the World Baseball Classic games in Puerto Rico, there were T-Mobile ads and tents all over as well as using the classic T-Mobile ringtone when they brought in a reliever from the bullpen….THAT’s what I’m looking for).

        Let’s Go Mets!!

        • http://tmonews.com David

          Nothing yet, that’s something I was actually thinking about on opening day but I haven’t heard or seen anything?!

  • Jason

    Great now the sheep will eat up the intelligent phone users bandwidth…

    • bob90210

      You should stop associating your intelligence with your phone choice; it reflects poorly on yourself.

      • Jason

        iPhones are for the technically challenged, known fact. My Grandma has one, if I handed her my Android phone and told her to root it, flash custom recovery, do a nandroid backup, flash custom rom, custom theme, then flash a custom kernel so she could overclock her phone, her head would explode.

        • bob90210

          Do you really think following other people’s instructions on how to root a phone signifies intelligence? And that people have not been able to root an iPhone? Or your grandma can not handle an Andriod phone? Perhaps you should do your grandmother a favor and buy her an Andriod phone just to increase her IQ.

        • Jason

          Baaaa! You get one phone model choice and you get to update your operating system when Apple tells you that your allowed. Arguing with sheep is pointless, they blindly love Apple unconditionally. Maybe they will change the port on the next model and charge you $75 for an adapter so all the other Apple only compatible crap you paid thousands of dollars for last year will function.

        • bob90210

          I’m starting to believe you’re right. Your phone choice does say a lot about your intelligence.

  • Drewmann

    Will Apple Retail stores be selling the iPhone 5 on T-Mobile tomorrow? and for the same price as T-Mobile? Because I would rather go to the store and pick up the 32Gb iPhone 5, than have to wait for it to ship to my house. But if Apple is selling it at a different price ill probably just buy from T-Mobile. Thanks for the Help whoever answers!

      I called my local Apple store and they confirmed they will have them in stock tomorrow and for the same price :)

        Alright! Sounds great! Haha I guess I could have called myself, oh well :) thanks!

          Same here apple store said would carry although apple is completely silent on this so far. Lame tmo won’t sell anything beyond 16gb in store. Verizon didn’t do this

    The Pink iPhone/T-Mobile shirts are a go for tomorrow. Just saw them today.

    Going to get mine at the Apple store so i can get AppleCare. Better deal that TMO insurance.

      FYI you can get appkecare+ within 30 days of purchase. Sometimes over the phone too w/ apple otherwise if u want to make 1 trip to apple store makes sense

    Has anyone seen the commercial!? It looks badass. I just saw it! Its an iPhone with a white back drop and inside a glass container. Then the glass shatters (representing no contracts) then T-Mobile logo.

      Where where???

      • rob

        It was on a Spanish channel. I’m waiting for it to re-air to record it since T-Mobile hasn’t uploaded it on YouTube.

        • rob

          The channel is called Telemundo owned by NBC

          Why don’t you tell me these things!

        • thepanttherlady

          LOL! I was mad because someone accused Rob of lying about seeing it so I went on a mission to find it. :)

        • http://tmonews.com David

          I didn’t think he was lying, I just wanted to know where he found it!

        • thepanttherlady

          No, not you. On the other thread someone told him flat out he was lying.

  • adeedew

    That’s a great commercial. Great news I pre ordered at midnight last fri am. Opted for overnight shipping and looks like it shipped for tomorrow delivery even though was told It wouldn’t ship until tomorrow and get until Monday. Awesome. 64gb. Tmo order status says:
    Order ship date: 04/11/2013
    + Order date: 04/05/2013

  • NoThx

    No one is camping out, just passed my local T-Mobile, thank god!

      That’s really not gonna happen. Trust me they’ll be easy to find. Or go to an apple store bet they’ll have plenty. Remember this is a 6 month old phone for most

    I had a friend who was trying to sell some vintage motorcycle pipes on ebay. I told him that today was a bad day to be selling stuff on eBay because it is tax time.

    That got me to thinking, how wise was it to debut the iPhone on T-Mobile when everyone is working on their taxes? This seems like the worst time to introduce an exciting new product on T-Mobile.
