Uncarrier 7.0 event will stream live, here’s where to listen in

Screen Shot 2014-09-09 at 14.52.59

This time it’s personal, apparently, and T-Mobile wants you to join in on the action tomorrow during its Uncarrier 7.0 announcement. The company announced today that a live webcast will be available during the event so we can all keep our ears on all the action as it goes down.

Sadly, from the wording in the PR release this morning, it sounds like it’s going to be audio only:

“For all the news on Un-carrier 7.0 and to join the webcast go to http://newsroom.t-mobile.com/. An on-demand replay of the audio stream will be available shortly after the conclusion of the presentation Webcast on http://newsroom.t-mobile.com/.”

The event kicks off at a retail store in San Francisco at 1pm Pacific Time/4pm Eastern tomorrow, September 10. As always, we’ll have reaction to the announcement here on TmoNews.

    It sounds like it could be live streamed and then the audio will be available. Webcasts do include video. It is quite ambiguous and one couldn’t get a definite answer from the statement.
    “For all the news on Un-carrier 7.0 and to join the webcast go to ht…
    An on-demand replay of the audio stream will be available shortly after the conclusion of the presentation Webcast on ht…”

    Here’s to hoping for some great news from Magenta.

    • philyew

      The media kit says “Listen Live…”, but it wouldn’t be the first time a TM communication was a little sloppy.

  • sushimane

    Is it today or tomorrow?

    • sushimane

      Never mind.

  • Deadeye37

    This time its personal….because SOCIAL NETWORKING DOESN’T COUNT AGAINST YOUR DATA ANYMORE! yay…..

    • AJ2

      Maybe some kind of free storage backup. They can’t make $ and upsell if they keep giving data away

      • Kekoa

        Google Drive already offers that feature on iOS and Android.

  • Andrew N Jensen

    Maybe it’s more free data for personal use…

    • JamesG

      What defines personal use?

  • Jay J. Blanco

    Die Sprint die lol

    • AJ2

      Competition on all forms is good for the industry. You shouldn’t want any carrier to die… And if Tmobile surpasses them on customer base, it won’t make a lick of difference in your service

      • Jay J. Blanco

        Sprint and competition don’t belong in the same sentence lol
        Yeah service definitely is improving Thanks to tmobile hard work and investment

        • superg05

          tmobile has been busy with fcc filings im eagerly awaiting tomorrow

  • 0h good, gives me Plenty of time to sleep in after the Aerosmith/Slash concert tonight. :)

  • Hudi G.

    Seriously Cam, “audio stream will be available shortly AFTER the conclusion of the presentation” read the press release before jumping to conclusions. Sounds to me like it will be live streamed with video and available afterwards on demand with only audio. Anyway thanks for keeping TmoNews somewhat alive.

    • matt

      i went to the page and logged on, it doesn’t look like it will be video.

      the are hosting the event at a regular store. so they are probably not prepared to stream live video

      • Hudi G.

        I logged in as well and it sure looks like video to me, same as the other webcasts.

    • Android_God

      Need a hug?

      • Hudi G.

        i could always use a hug.

    • philyew

      The media kit headline says “Listen Live…”. More indicative of an audio-only webcast, one might assume.

    • Cruise Guy

      Why would you put him down over that. That was not a comment any of us needed. He simply made a judgment call, and if he had said the opposite, some other person would have complained the other way. No need for that comment. Thanks.

  • AJ2

    No rumora yet? Wonder if part will include iPhone 6 as part of trial..

  • guest

    Hope its unlimited tethering.

    • Krazonite

      My guess is that it has *something* to do with personal hotspots/tethering/hotspot devices.

      Free is another thing entirely though and I won’t allow myself to hope for anything quite that TG2BT.

    • besweeet

      Now cell sites really would become quickly overloaded… Not unless the speeds are capped though, so maybe you’re onto something.

  • Jay J. Blanco

    New lte markets

  • matt

  • nutmac

    With Sprint offering free 2GB/line and $15/line fee waived until end of 2015 (only for new customers) and Verizon offering individual plan at $50 for 2GB, it’s pretty obvious that T-Mobile will have to permanently increase the base data package to at least 2GB, possibly 2.5GB.

    Since Un-Carrier’s point is to offer more, I think we may see one or two non-music services added to “unlimited access”, such as social media (Facebook, Tumbler, Twitter) and video streaming (Hulu, Netflix, YouTube).

    With onslaught of new phones coming out for the holiday season, I think T-Mobile will do even more to make it easy to switch with a shiny new phone. Perhaps making it much easier to preorder hard to get smartphone such as Apple iPhone 6, Moto X, and Sony Z3. It is also my personal wish that T-Mobile flags a phone that is optimized for T-Mobile (Wi-Fi Calling, VoLTE, LTE bands 2, 4, 12) in some way.

    • Brandon Jiang

      I feel that social media is a good possibility to being added to unlimited, but free video streaming would absolutely kill the network.

      • @STFUalready

        Yeah your he’s smoking some strong stuff if he thinks its free video streaming. Doesn’t cost a thing though to be wishful.

      • besweeet

        I don’t see social media as being “personal” things IMO, at least when considering Twitter which is generally a public thing. Lots of possibilities, though.

    • ChitChatCat

      If free video streaming is offered, along with free audio streaming, what would be the purpose of data caps? PTP is banned on the network, so that takes out the other large data use other than streaming.

      • STFUalready

        So no one goes too crazy sending mms messages lol… Thanks for stating the obvious that some, obviously, just did not realize. Excellent point people should know. Seriously good point most people should understand, so I’m not trying to poke fun at you – just to be clear.

    • Mike

      Or perhaps do the honorable thing and not carry phones that don’t play well on their network, viz., Iphone. Or offer no cost phones to replace phones that don’t work well on their network, again, the iphone.

      • Dark enV

        I guess we’ll have to get rid off ride Galaxy S5, HTC ONE M8 and LG G3 since they don’t have band 12 either

        • superg05

          are you in a place with a bad signal?

        • Dark enV

          It Depends, the majority off the time is good but it’s pretty terrible outside the city area and I’m at my buddy’s house where there is no coverage every weekend

        • superg05

          yeah i can understand that but t-mobile is buying band 12 left and right most likely the new notes will have it since Samsung has already released a two band 12 devices on t-mobile

        • JamesG

          Those phones were completed before the spectrum was purchased.

    • Aaron C

      What I’d REALLY love is to be able to take that 10GB pool of family data and slice up the high speed data MYSELF to each line. THAT would be PERSONAL! I could allocate one line 3GB, another 3GB and the other two 2GB each. Or 4/4/1/1! Two lines in the household use a lot of data, the others not so much. Giving us 2.5 per line flat is kind of tight for two of us, a waste for the other two.

      • besweeet

        That would be interesting, but something that the other carriers could probably copy very quickly, so the short-term advantages might be small. Still interesting…

  • mayswitchtodriod

    apple just shot tmobile in the face with no band12 on iphone 6

    • Mike Palomba

      Yea really, does anyone know if that can be changed via software patch? I read something about band 17 being able to be converted to band 12

  • Mike Palomba

    Really hope its something good. The iPhone 6 not having band 12 really pissed me off.

  • superg05

    i just saw something interesting that t-mobile was doing in a filing i would be lying if i said i could interpret all the data im looking at where the hero conan when you need him but i did see some licensees change hands from an enemy

    • ChitChatCat

      Link?

      • superg05

        it would take forever to approve want me to give you a link at another site

      • superg05

        it will take forever here is there somewhere else i can share it with you? i think its spectrum they had to divest when they purchased small carriers

          i also see a ton on p2p microwave filings normally used for wireless back-haul most likey for rural areas im so proud of t-mobile there drastically/dramatically trying to improve they are still pending approval but t-mobile is doing its best to become the best it can

        • Elier Ruiz

          when did that happen?

  • Moore Teacher

    Refer your friends to T-Mobile
    RESCUE A FRIEND FROM SPRINT AT&T, OR VERIZON. AND YOU BOTH GET REWARDED BIG TIME WITH AN UPGRADE TO UNLIMITED LTE DATA FOR ONE YEAR.
    If you are xhangimg over email me at mooreokteacher@gmail.com and I will give you my number and we can get unlimited data for a year. That’s a sweet deal.

    • Moore Teacher

      *changing

  • Larry Griffin

    The link shows there is some type of video presentation so fingers crossed

  • Derrick

    I think this will be about the equipment installment plan.

    • JamesG

      What would change about it?

  • A_very_Interested_follower

    Not to crap on anybody’s parade, but when I clicked on the link the event was scheduled for 1pm ET not PT. I hope the article is correct?

    • ddialogue

      After clicking the link, it initially said 1pm ET but switched to 1pm PT after registering for and logging into the webcast.

      • A_very_Interested_follower

        Ok I see that now, wow that is a weird thing. Way to fool me!

  • Mr. Mister

    Can’t wait to hear news on the Moto X. HTC One M8 has got to go

  • Matt Pankey

    The T-Mobile Facebook page says “watch” The event.

  • rob

    Good news, the 700 freq. will be on the tmobile version. that is only 1 thing i found out about 7.0 today

    • Ozzy_R

      Not personal enough..lol.

      Wonder what else is in store. Going to get popcorn for 4pm ET.

  • JohnLegere

    unlimited unicorns for everyone!

  • MMakoto

    man this uncarrier thing is really of no benefit for me on a legacy 1k min family plan of 4. i have done some calculations every time they announce a new uncarrier plan, but i cannot take advantage of ANY of them, sad. the only thing that came close was the recent 4 lines for $100, but too bad the data is limited to 2.5gb/line, and not every line needs data.

    • Deihmos

      How much are you paying for that plan? I use to have a similar plan but I think the new plans offer a lot more for around the same price such as free international roaming, free music streaming and more.

    • Mike Palomba

      You should update to simple choice. It’s a lot better then a lot of the legacy plans and then you’ll get all the uncarrier benefits

    anyone else picking up tips on spray painting right now it begins

    • Jacob Martin

      Yeah, it sucks, because I was hoping to learn how to spray paint other things, but you have to start somewhere.

  • Razball

    Home internet?

  • Razball

    Or home penetration

  • Alex Pilaia

    Just some dude spray paining…

  • NCtj

    When is this going to get started? All I see is spray paint.

    • Mike Palomba

      Same here, maybe they’re running late

  • Mike Palomba

    Is it playing yet? All I see is a video of john spray painting on a wall. Also there is no doubt this announcement has something to do with “the cloud” so hopefully it’s good. I’m hoping it’s more then that because even unlimited cloud storage is not very exciting to me.

  • Van Steel

    Nice… They’re late to start. I was hoping to catch some of it before I had to leave for work.

  • Ryan

    http://live.cnet.com/Event/T-Mobiles_Uncarrier_70_event <- This link would be more beneficial since it is updated with text / pics of the event right now.

  • Alex Pilaia

    Maybe Facebook/GPS wont count towards data, or other web services like that… Reduced Individual plans, maybe pick up Metro PCS pricing which includes taxes and fees… Rollover-data would be nice too…

  • Mikey Donohue

    I’m glad I know how to paint now.

  • Mike Palomba

    Here we go

  • Van Steel

    Maybe we’ll get unlimited spray paint included with our data plans?

  • Scooter Da Champ

    When will it start

    • Mike Palomba

      It just did a few seconds ago

  • the kid

    GO T-Mobile!!!the

  • trickinit

    Anyone else getting buffering? I have a fast connection, but it keeps freezing every 60 seconds or so.

    • Mike Palomba

      No buffering here, I’m on a 100+Mbs connection though

  • Oh…god. Please tell me the whole event is not about Apple and the iPhone. Sorry, I really don’t care about that. I care about plans/services, etc.

    • Mike Palomba

      I’m sure it won’t be

    • Paul

      So far it’s not.

  • Dark enV

    My link won’t work

  • Winski

    BAD streaming… 60 seconds max and then re-start… NOT..

    Buh…Bye…

    • iamdan

      No issue here.

  • britnasty

    This stream is utter garbage. It keeps playing his Vegas/att CEO joke over and over.

  • Mando

    they better add more than 20 gb of unlimited data if they want to beat sprint

    • iamdan

      20GB of unlimited data?

      • The Kid

        they have that now (for 10 lines).

        You can purchase 4.5 GB for $10 on the 4×100 promo plan.

    • Mando

      sorry meant to say more than 20 gb of data, sprint did that 4 lines with 20gb of data and talk and text for $100

  • Alex Pilaia

    very glitchy

  • DD

    It’s happening !!!!

  • DD

    “We’re a mobile internet company, they are
    utilities.”

  • Paul

    Turns out it’s a video feed. Feed is good on my phone.
    AND he just referred to Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint as the 3 stooges.

  • DD

    AT&T
    and Verizon revenue if $250 billion. Greater than GDP of Denmark,
    Portugal, several other countries. They control 85% of margins in
    industry. 75% of sub-1GHz spectrum. “Profiteering.”

  • It’s video for me, as of 15:33 CDT

  • DD

    Coverage at 30,000 feet

    • iamdan

      wtf? how did you call that?

      • thepanttherlady

        There was an article on CNET, I believe, that was already posted while the live streaming was happening.

  • DD

    T-Mobile Personal CellSpot

  • Tony
  • DD

    Wi-Fi calling and texting for 100% of T-Mobile customers

  • D Nice

    Anyone has updates? I cant get into the feed!

  • Alex Pilaia

    WIFI UNLEASHED!

  • Alex Pilaia

    EVERY WIFI SPOT JUST BECAME A T-MOBILE TOWER…

    • Pitahson

      What makes it different than wifi calling? Im watching but i dont have headphones so I can’t listen

  • dd

    n-carrier 7.0, starting right now every single Wi-Fi connection just became a T-Mobile tower

  • PeterGriffin

    IPhone 6s and 6s+ to have band 12!! (yaaaay! hehehehe..in peter griffins voice)

  • Travis Tabbal

    New WIFI calling tech, first OEM is Apple. It makes WIFI act like the normal TMO network. I’m not sure what good this does me… Hopefully something…

  • Travis Tabbal

    Hmmm…. Free JUMP to go to a WiFi enabled phone. One time only, even if you aren’t signed up for JUMP.

  • Pitahson

    is it every customer under the tmobile umbrella? including MVNO?

  • iamdan

    Protected WIFI + WIFI enabled enabled device without network key = no connection
    Am I missing something?

  • anon

    Didn’t BlackBerry have this years ago?!

  • Mike Palomba

    Oh I get it. This time it’s personal, personal cell spot. Hope that’s not the whole uncarrier because I have good signal in my house

  • Alex Pilaia

    Hmm.. what if you dont have a Tmobile Phone?? but have Tmobile service?? (like Nexus 5 from Google, or Moto X from Motorola unlocked??)

    • JT

      Indeed

  • Travis Tabbal

    Looks like a nice AC router… Looks like an Asus router… lol

  • Travis Tabbal

    It’s a free router… ??

    • iamdan

      indeed on Simple Choice Plans

      • Travis Tabbal

        Interesting. Does it get it’s connection from me or from them, I wonder?

  • iamdan

    I could use an AC router.

    • Travis Tabbal

      right?

  • Travis Tabbal

    “Broadband connection required”

  • honestabe

    So it REPLACES your router? Or if you already have one, can you still use this?

    • iamdan

      I would use the new one. I’m sure is has 10/100/1000 ports and it’s AC.

      • honestabe

        I have the latest apple Airport though

        • iamdan

          Express, Extreme, or Time Capsule?

        • honestabe

          Extreme

        • iamdan

          Is there auto backup or cloud storage on that device?

        • honestabe

          No, there isn’t. can the tmobile one do that?

        • iamdan

          doesn’t look to be so, but looks like you wouldn’t lose anything switching to the new one.

    • Travis Tabbal

      He just said it could be run along side your existing stuff.. Might not get the QoS benefits though.

      • I’m confused what QoS stands for?

        • Travis Tabbal

          Quality Of Service. It would make the traffic for calls etc. be the highest priority, so no matter what else is going on on your internet connection, your call will be fine.

  • Alex Pilaia

    What if you have 2 households on the same Simple Choice Plan?? Will Tmobile give you 2???

  • Alex Pilaia

    FREE in flights texts.. thats awesome

  • Rose Yvette Mosher

    Wasn’t this always free?

    • Alex Pilaia

      No. You had to pay to access wifi in flights… was a rip off… Tmo partners with Gogo for free wifi

      • Rose Yvette Mosher

        No. I’m talking about wifi calls to America from other countries.

        • trickinit

          Yes, it’s always been free.

  • Guest

    F&*KING LAME!!!!

  • Meh… I got excited for nothing. I’m severely underwhelmed.

  • AlexanderKline

    Increase my data!?

  • Alex Pilaia

    Asus makes the router….

  • Alex Pilaia

    What are the speeds of this “additional” wifi router??

    • honestabe

      It’s AC, but it should be whatever internet speed you pay for

  • And I can’t really replace my router like the dude just said. I have one of those AT&T U-Verse router because our house used to have the bundle service. My internet runs through this router. I’m not really sure how to configure it without their router or if I could.

  • honestabe

    I’m wondering if this DOES mean that other tmobile customers in the area will be able to use your CellSpot while they’re close enough to it

    • honestabe

      oh, never mind — I don’t think other people can connect to it…

      • Alex Pilaia

        he just said no… maybe in the future. but it is disabled now.

        • honestabe

          So if you already have a good wifi setup in your home — I guess there’s no reason to get the cellspot, right? Or is there a benefit that I’m not seeing in that case?

        • Alex Pilaia

          its not to increase your wifi signal, its to increase your Tmobile reception of LTE or 4G..at home…

        • honestabe

          But if you sign into wifi — there’s no reason to have that cellular connection, right

        • Alex Pilaia

          If your phone doesn’t go calls over wifi, then this is for you… if not, yes you are right…

  • Jacob Martin

    This was very good.
