T-Mobile Uncarrier 8.0 event live tomorrow, December 16

T-Mobile To Offer 7-Day iPhone Test Drives to Attract Skeptics

In a surprise announcement, T-Mobile revealed that it’s Uncarrier 8.0 movement is set to be unveiled tomorrow, December 16th at 10:30am Eastern/7:30am Pacific. The announcement will be made via live on Yahoo! News in a webcast hosted by David Pogue.

The link will be made available on newsroom.t-mobile.com tomorrow morning.

The last few Uncarrier events have proven popular. But to announce one right before Christmas certainly is an unusual, and unexpected move. If that’s not Uncarrier, I guess nothing else is.

Let us know what you think it might be in the comments!

    No more tax on their plans! All-in-one pricing?

    My guess/hope.

    • dayaram

      That would be awsome. I would save $30. Couldnt ask anything else.

      Other thing could be is giving out more data. But they just did that with 2lines unlimited, and 4lines 10gb.

      What else could they change and it the uncarrier move!!?

    • besweeet

      Not a very Un-carrier-like move, since others are already doing that.

      • JiGSaW525

        Very true, but so was the ‘no contract’ uncarrier event. You could have went prepaid, if you didn’t want a contract (at the time).

        At some point, I think T-Mobile will just do everything that the other 3 major carriers aren’t doing, which I am completely fine with coming from VZW.

        Whatever it is, I hope to take advantage of it :)

    • Verizonthunder

      Really why don’t you just leave this country tax dodger.

      • JiGSaW525

        Tax dodger? Really, I’m an accountant! You think by having a set price they’re eliminating taxes? Unreal. They would just include them and the consumer will have a set amount each month.

        Read a book (re: gas prices)

        • Verizonthunder

          You should look at other comments which make more sense than your desire to avoid paying taxes; sorry everyone has to pay taxes in some form.

        • JiGSaW525

          You don’t get it….others, included the person above you did.

          “No more tax on their plans! All-in-one pricing?”

          I am done with your ignorance. Also, this is a guess not what’s happening.

          Side note: I leave in NYC and well aware of all the taxes that are to paid.

        • dayaram

          Pay tax and and what? Invade one more country?

        • Whiskers

          You must live in taxafornia (California) and love paying extra taxes for nothing..
          Ask all the hard working people how their local government is working out for them with all the extra taxes they pay and still get bent over by all the illegals getting their free ride .

      • Lenny Pecos

        Hmmm Tax Dodger you say? Better look again looks like Verizon didn’t pay taxes at all!!! Between 2008-2012 – Who is the tax dodger now? http://www.ctj.org/corporatetaxdodgers/sorrystateofcorptaxes.pdf

      • Lenny Pecos

        Better go look at Verizon Wireless public records looks like the did not pay any taxes at all between 2008 -2012. Who is the tax dodger now?

        • Verizonthunder

          I am not with Verizon tisk tisk to slow for this forum.

        • Lenny Pecos

          No one is saying your at Verizon, only saying go look at Verizon public records as an example of a carrier that finds loop holes and ways out of taxes.

        • Verizonthunder

          You insinuat I was currently with Verizon but dislike that company thus left for T-Mobile been a great ride sense.

        • Lenny Pecos

          I never said you were with Verizon, maybe you should lay off the bottle before posting again.

        • jonathan3579

          3. It is since not sense.

        • jonathan3579

          1. It is too not to. 2. This is not a forum.

      • Rob Jones

        Tax dodgers sorry taxation is just theft that’s legal

      • Stone Cold

        How did the other charger/plugs work?

      • derp hurr-durr

        Just in case you’re still as yet unaware how this works:

        Company says: Pay no Tax on your device/plan!

        Company does: Pay the taxes on your device/plan, usually working it back into your costs in some way so that you’re still paying it – only it’s just not as obvious.

        No-one here advocated not paying taxes *at all* – especially not the OP you just got all accusatory on.

        Settle down, man. Chill a bit, eh?

        A true criticism of OP’s post would be “…and I suppose you’re all for more billing transparency as well, right?”; as the two requests would be highly contradictory.

    • Stone Cold

      All fees included like the Metro side would be great.

  • alex

    super excited.. 2 for $100 all unlimited is awesome, with $10 5gb tablet plan is just perfect.
    I have full entertaining system in my car with Music unlimited with tablet installed in car.

    Tmobile rocks with wideband LTE at NYC.

    Love it. A ++++

    • Chris Sanner

      the 2 for $100 already includes the 5gb tethering plan, no extra $10 needed.

      • patt

        he said tablet plan.

        • Chris Sanner

          so he did. sorry, I misunderstood what that meant – forgot that there was a plan for 4G tablets

    • Verizonthunder

      I convinced my brother and his wife to switch from Sprint to T-Mobile for that promotional deal two lines for one hundred bucks. I have my brother my lg g flex and his wife financed the iPhone 6. Already saving money and better service.

  • Whiskers

    $50.00/month per line , taxes included and unlimited everything……

    • Verizonthunder

      This would make sense about including taxes into your plan.

      • archerian

        At this point T-Mobile will most probably not do anything that increases their costs. If taxes and fees were included it would still have to be paid out my T-Mobile.

    • besweeet

      And then the network crumbles from everyone using more data than before and paying less for it…

      • yankeesusa

        Like what happened with att and still is and what is happening with verizon even though they swear that theyve doubled their capacity? Ok

      • Whiskers

        Really , we are only talking about 5-6 bucks per line .
        But to many switching over they would think it’s better than a great deal , not only saving half of what the big 2 are charging for service but not having taxes on top of that too.
        The network is fine and growing , 5-6 bucks a line is not going to put a dent in their pocket.

        • besweeet

          By “unlimited everything,” where you referring to unlimited but unthrottled data, or the unthrottled/unlimited plan? If it’s the latter, then they’d definitely be losing a fair amount of money per user ($20-30 loss per user per month).

        • Whiskers

          Referring to the 2 line $100/month unlimited deal but with taxes included , include the deal for single line users as well .

        • besweeet

          How did you figure they’d only be losing $5-6 per line?

        • Whiskers

          Because my simple choice monthly bill is 45.99/month right now and my taxes are about $6 on top of that.
          It’s a guess but i can’t be that far off unless people live in taxafornia (California) or some other state that’s tax happy.

        • besweeet

          You’d be going from someone who would normally be paying $80 for the unthrottled unlimited line to $50, thus losing at $30 per month per user…

        • Whiskers

          After reviewing my T-Mobile plan again here is my plan right now for me and my wife;
          $80/month for both lines with unlimited call and text with 1gb of data each.
          If we jumped on the 2 lines for $100/month deal and they included the taxes , then we would only spend about $8 more a month but get the unlimited data..
          But if we did that and still had to pay taxes on the both lines then we are spending $20 more a month.
          I know i would be getting unlimited data with the new deal but i’m not spending $20.00 a month more unless i start traveling more and really need T-Mobile’s data to live on. Wifi is almost everywhere around me now.

          Most new customers never use unlimited data either , it’s just nice to have and never worry about not having enough when price wars are in place right now and carriers are trying to keep or gain more customers by competing against each other.
          So i don’t think it’s unreasonable or going to crumble T-Mobiles network when compitition is tough right now.
          Lets face it , T-Mobile does not have the coverage the other big 2 has yet so they have offer something to up the anny….

        • besweeet

          I see. I don’t think it’s fair to compare a temporary, promotional price with standard pricing.

        • Whiskers

          I don’t have a promotional package , it’s a standard Simple Choice plan.

        • besweeet

          You were referring to the new promotions earlier: “Referring to the 2 line $100/month unlimited deal but with taxes included , include the deal for single line users as well .”

        • Whiskers

          Ooops , my fault.
          I see what you mean now.
          I should of said i would like to see it a permanent deal ,at $50/month , taxes included , unlimited data with the 5g of tethering as well.
          Not a promotional deal….

        • tmorules

          here is a better idea, why doesn’t t-mobile give you free service for life and all you pay is taxes. you know since t-mobile is not in the business to make money

        • Whiskers

          Hey great idea , I’ll take that deal too if they give it to me , lol.
          But in all seriousness , there are other providers offering tax included in their service so T-Mobile can to if it keeps customers and makes them stay.

    • kev2684

      yes, please.

    • Austin

      I think they should release something like that… $50 unlimited web capped at 3 Mbps

  • Georgios Renieris

    lol i lol i just changed my plan i wonder if i will be doing it again tomorrow.

  • Alex Pilaia

    special sdiscounts for long time customers would be awesome!

    • JB45

      10 plus years?

      • Stone Cold

        I would qualify. But 5+ would be ok too.

    • Whiskers

      I 2nd that , 12 years going here and still with them.

      • Kingcharming

        13 here!

    • sierra.alpha

      Maybe suggest that each year with TMo knocks off $2 off your bill…10 years- $20 off, not a bad deal.

  • yankeesusa

    I think their announcement has to do with their 2g areas being LTE a lot faster than they expected. Or it could be that they got even more spectrum to penetrate indoors better. Either way it’s good news.

  • Chris

    I’d like to see throttle back to 3G instead of 2G if it’s available. Granted, I moved over to the the unlimited family plan but that shouldn’t hurt the network the more they push to VOLTE and convert the Edge to LTE anyways. At some point the HSPA network will be “old” so might as well have that be the throttled speed especially if the LTE rollout on 1900 is ahead of schedule.

    • Pete

      That’ll be awesome.

    • Fabian Cortez

      I’d be okay with 512 Kbps or 1 Mbps throttled spied as well as for international data roaming.

  • Rob Jones

    I got the 100 for 2 lines unlimited data tmo = best wireless compsny

  • John Brown

    Free trade in of HSPA devices for devices capable of LTE. So sick of having EDGE on my brand new ZTE Zinger while the guy sitting next to me has LTE on his t mobile Note 3

    • Kogashuko

      What did you expect buying zte?

      • John Brown

        I’m a broke convenience store clerk making minimum wage with no credit. It was this or the Alcatel Evolve. I picked the better of 2 pieces of junk because its all I can afford. Then t mobile screwed us rural poor people by upgrading EDGE to LTE but giving us absolutely no HSPA coverage.

        • John Brown

          On the bright side, I get unlimited talk text and 5gb of high speed data for $34.88 a month. Now if I had more than EDGE coverage this Walmart family mobile plan would be the best value in wireless.

        • idisestablish

          I disagree, Family Mobile is nowhere near the -value- of T-Mobile. It’s cheaper, but the trade-offs are significant: no access to help from customer service or T-Mobile’s retail stores, no roaming capabilities, no access to T-Mobile’s uncarrier moves like free music streaming, no installment plans on devices, no trade-in or JUMP, no free international roaming, no free international texting, no access to unlimited international calling, data speeds capped at 3G, no truly unlimited data, etc ad nauseam.

        • Singleweird

          shhhhhhhh!

        • Guest

          The Samsung Galaxy Avant is LTE, cheaper than the ZTE, and not a piece of junk.

        • Cap. Obvious

          Get a phone from craigslist.

    • Guest

      why in the world did you buy a zinger

  • notme96

    It’d be nice if they offered a choice of devices for their “Test Drive” program.

    • Singleweird

      should have been an s5 the whole time.

  • Chris Hilbert

    I go back to my constant request to buy up some of these companies Voice Stream partially owned – Iwireless for example – and/or make them non-roaming coverage.

    • Austin

      I used 7 GB of Netflix on iWireless in a week… They don’t count it as roaming

      • Chris Hilbert

        It’s a loophole. They still won’t let you activate service in the Iwireless territory.

        • Austin

          Then use a different address… Do you have family somewhere else?

        • Chris Hilbert

          That’s not an issue. It’s the not supported/not allowed for lengthy periods situation. I read a bunch of people getting in trouble for attempting to perma-roam in Iowa.

  • Mars Reyes

    LOYALTY CUSTOMERS gets UNLIMITED DATA 2 LINES! :)

    • Whiskers

      I like that idea.

    • Yolanda Taylor

      Mars thats going on now 2LINES W/UNLIMITED TALK/TEXT/WEB all for $100

    • capt. obvious

      ^^^^ already a thing…. Get your facts straight. be more specific “get unlimited HIGHSPEED data” thank you very much.

      • Mars Reyes

        Kind sir. Thank you. Without paying extra for it. It is extra money to get more data…

        IF one doesn’t know, one may gain wisdom. Other teaches for a reason. We are all students in life, no one is the perfect master.

  • William Burr Winans

    I am predicting either Unlimited Hotspot or Unlimited 4G Data Plan on Tablets!

    • frankinnoho

      That’s my guess/hope. Then be able to tell the cable co to frak off.

  • Zak

    I Think they will announce LTE expansion, i’ve found places on rootmetrics that indicate T-Mobile LTE when on T-Mo’s coverage map it’s only 2G, example is Salina, KS. Hopefully they also announce more band 12 handsets. And if we get lucky a merger with US Cellular, since they have 700mhz in the same block that T-Mo keeps buying up. And finally if they’ve surpased Sprint yet, they’ve said they would before year end.

    • Danny Lewis

      I’ve been seeing Sensorly mappings that show LTE in rural parts of my state! It totally blows my mind!

      • Deswaga

        They have been on a roll in NC..so rapidly!!! And I love it!!!

  • shadlom

    Hope it’s something better than wifi calling lol

  • Oms

    Please let it be something about the current meager domestic data roaming limits!

    • Singleweird

      domestic data roaming costs t-mobile money. not much value in expanding a money hole

      • Oms

        My hope is that they could negotiate better terms with other roaming partners so that they could increase the roaming cap. Other smaller companies (i.e. US Cellular) that incur higher data roaming have significantly higher roaming caps.

  • Nick

    I think it is going to be unVideo like Netflix and Amazon. No data will be counted if Netflix or Amazon Prime movies are streamed.

    • besweeet

      Fewer reasons to pay more for the unthrottled unlimited plan? Not sure if that’s a good idea, especially since video streaming requires much more bandwidth versus audio streaming.

      • Singleweird

        i think we’re finding ways to get rid of the $30 soc for unlimited and just phase it into simple choice. if it weren’t for the recent announcement of 2100 i would think uncarrier 8 would be something like what nick said.

    • Brad

      That’s a lofty dream, but nobody would use any data at that point. Might as well give everyone free unlimited data

  • francob911 .

    Well if T-Mobile really wants to be 3rd they should at least match Sprints prices 10 lines for $100 and have the option to add unlimited data for the lines you want

    • dayaram

      That would
      Be just awsome since i have 7lines.
      First line $50, then $10 additional. 10 lines for $100.

      But i think its gotta do something with tablet may be since it holiday season and they wana sell more tablets.

      • dayaram

        Saying that…att and verizon have drastically lower their cost of sharable data. Now tmobile cost almost the same for a person with 2lines or even 3lines. They do need to attack on pricing also. 10 lines $100. Woot woot!!

      • timmyjoe42

        Under the Sprint plan your total would be $100 for 20GB and 7 lines x $15 = $205.

    • timmyjoe42

      My understanding of the Sprint deal is that you get 10 lines of data for $100, each phone on the plan is an extra $15. So 10 lines of 20GB data and unlimited calling/messaging would be $250 not $100.

      • Singleweird

        the 15 is being waived right now, but ultimately you are correct

      • jacky

        also on sprint you have to pay $36 activation fees each line, t mobile lets you buy a sim card for $15 each line. oh and if your not on sprints easy pay thats an extra $25 service fees and $9.99 adminnistrative fee. sprint will get you in bogus fees.

    • former Tmo rep

      yeah until next year when you’re paying $250 for 1 GB data per line vs tmobile’s 160

  • timmyjoe42

    I hope it’s a Wifi app for Android (for the Nexus 6) that can be used universally on any unbranded device.

    • Kidney_Thief

      It needs to be baked into the operating system, so I doubt that’s going to happen.

      • timmyjoe42

        Well they said it would be available for the Nexus 5 and I don’t know how they bake it into stock vanilla Android if not other carrier uses it. (I know other carriers have plans for use in the future.) I don’t understand why it would have to be baked into the OS if Apps like Google Voice and other VOIP don’t need to be.

        • Kidney_Thief

          Google Voice and Skye, etc. also a) don’t turn off your cell modem to conserve power, and b) don’t use your phone number to call people.

          Google is going to make the Nexus phones compatible with Wi-Fi calling through an OS update.

        • timmyjoe42

          allegedly

      • Singleweird

        if you switched your calling app to this one (similar to how you can change it to skype) they may be able to jimmy wrig something. but im not a developer.

        • Oms

          They could also partner with Google Voice (like Sprint did) so that your phone number could work with the Google Hangouts app. That would allow basically any phone to work over WiFi. See https://www.google.com/googlevoice/sprint/#

  • Nick

    I think Wifi Calling App for all unlocked phones.

    • joe

      That would be amazing!!

  • Aurizen

    I hope this on is good!

  • Real News!!

    We want to know when we will get our Nexus 6 64GB phones!!!! Announce that!!!

    • Bust

      HAHA, I was gonna say the same thing!!! Give us an update at the least, since no one else in the effing company seems to have the slighest clue w t f is going on with the supply…

  • Jay J. Blanco

    Im clueless. What esle can tmobile do?

  • Andrew N Jensen

    Unlimited highspeed hotspot data.

    • Paul

      Will never happen

      • tmolover31

        I know it will not happen, but it would be nice if we had a good alternative to our local cable monopolies.

  • Corey

    Uncarrier 8.0 is an across the board $20 price cut on Simple Choice plans. I saw it because of a glitch in the website this morning.

    • Singleweird

      post your screenshot

      • Joel

        Yeah pics or didn’t happen.

    • nutmac

      If true, I suspect it won’t apply to those on Advantage (corporate and gov’t discount) program.

  • jeffy

    Maybe change in credit class? Letting customers with credit class C have 0 down?

    • Singleweird

      fingers crossed

    • former Tmo rep

      If you can’t/aren’t willing to put $100 down on a $700 phone, maybe you’re on a low credit class for a reason.

      • jeffy

        Or maybe I simply just turned 18?

        • former Tmo rep

          Yeah, that kinda falls under cant/aren’t willing and, as well, under “You don’t need a $700 phone”

        • jeffy

          But I have a $800 phone. Lol
          I was just saying maybe that’s the move so tmo can get more customers. Ahaha I love how people are ready to fight.
          So much hate

        • former Tmo rep

          Just got off a year tour of entitled people thinking T-Mobile owed them something for nothing, pardon me if I’m a bit jaded.

        • EndlessIke

          Nobody wants to roll out a marketing program to lure poor/bad credit risks. It’s silly.

          How the rich stay rich, sucka.

  • tmolover31

    Maybe an unlimited mobile hotspot plan to give us a good alternative to our local cable monopolies?

    • tmolover31

      Never mind. I saw that someone else had just guessed it.

    • Kidney_Thief

      T-Mobile is pretty adamant that your cell phone data plan is not a replacement for cable internet service.

      • tmolover31

        I’m sure it will not happen, but it would be nice if we had a good alternative to our local cable monopolies.

    • Singleweird

      that’d shoot our network in the foot real bad

    • Michael Perez

      I called about this and the rep gave me a clue for Dec 15 that such an offer could be a possibility then. It’s concerning how they would achieve that with their mobile network but it could also be a possibility of using fixed LTE such as the Dish network trials. If that’s the case I am signing up immediately and dumping Comcast if it’s indeed a unlimited plan. Even if the speed is capped I am perfectly fine with that.

      • J.J.

        hmm…. would be more incentive to buy /rent there routers, so maybe.

      • kev2684

        me too. i’m paying them way too much.

      • Willie D

        I never understood that term, FIXED LTE. All LTE is fixed, to a cell tower. If there is a different standard, like WiMAX has fixed and mobile, then sure I get that, but seeing as how fixed WiMAX, which is what Sprint and Clearwire both used for mobile devices for internet, barely, if ever worked, I cant see how LTE fixed in a mobile environment would be any better.
        Aside from this, my conversations with T-Mobile were specific that this is not going to happen.

        • conservative_motorcyclist

          all the term “Fixed LTE” means is that you are accessing LTE data from a fixed location. On Clearwire, this would be equivalent to getting one of their WI-MAX routers, and setting it up in a permanent location.
          “Mobile LTE” refers to a device you can take with you to have LTE access.

        • KeepU

          Fixed LTE means fixed at both ends. With a fixed antenna users can get stronger signal at home and possibly connect to multiple towers to better manage loading.

        • Michael Perez

          It’s not a real term to describe anything new or a different variation but rather it’s setup. Fixed to fixed versus fixed to mobile. Currently Dish is using 2.5ghz with TD-LTE which requires a panel to be installed on your roof. Fixed setups require alignment and have less interference because their directional. So they can provide better performance at longer distances.

  • Kaylord

    Maybe it’s about them taking the number 3 spot as the top carrier in the USA passing Sprint

  • pramarama

    Corporate discounts! :)

    Being able to JUMP upgrade to any phone, rather than just having to buy a new phone from them? I hate that I can’t get a Moto X on JUMP.

    • Singleweird

      that couldn’t possibly work. its like getting a loan at ford to buy a toyota.

      • pramarama

        No EIP. Just JUMP from a previous phone I had EIP on. I’ve got an LG G2 I bought using EIP. I want a Moto X 2014. T-Mobile will pay off what I owe on the G2, and I can buy a Moto X from Motorola. At that point, it doesn’t make sense for me to be on JUMP anymore, because my Moto X is either fully paid, or financed through Motorola, so I drop down from $10/month on JUMP to $8/month on insurance.

        At some point down the road, I decide I want a phone T-Mobile does offer. I can then buy it on EIP and use JUMP on that, just like anyone buying a new phone would.

        I realize T-Mobile makes money when they sell me a phone, so they would be missing out on a device sale. But I wasn’t asking T-Mobile to finance a phone I didn’t buy through them.

        Additionally, what the JUMP program almost guarantees is that although there’s no service contract, I’m going to stay with them because I just bought a phone from them. This would allow someone to leave for another carrier very easily with a balance on their financed phone.

  • rafael

    I would like them to do something for long term customers…I been with them for two years now and I still can’t upgrade my phone because I can’t afford the 450 dollar Down payment required for the upgrade…I admit my credit sucks but I have great payment history with t-mobile they should factor in that history in to the decision when it comes to upgrades.

    I hate Sprint but with there 2 year agreement option I can still upgrade every two years and be able to afford a new phone. I kinda wish t-mobile had a 2 year option for customers like me.

    • JaswinderSinghJammu

      I think they do take it in to consideration but if your credit is really bad then you don’t need a $700 phone (Not meant as mean comment). I was in your boat not long ago but am not any longer. Try to catch up on your other late payments and obligations. Don’t worry about things that are over 4 year old or older.

      • trife

        Bad credit doesn’t necessarily equate to being behind on payments NOW, seeing that it follows you for awhile. So telling someone what they do/don’t need is kind of presumptuous, IMO.

        And hey, truth be told, nobody NEEDS a $700 phone. They’re luxury items for all of us.

        Just a thought.

        • Willie D

          If you wanna get down to it, nobody NEEDS a cellphone or telephone at all, you can walk to talk to someone, mail them a letter, etc…But lets be real and honest here, human evolution and market have clearly changed where communication is key, and its a little slap in the face when a company can give you a low EIP upfront financing payment deposit, and you do all you can to show commitment and pay on time to build a good rapport and try to make changes in your life to be better at paying on time, and told that those ontime payments after a year will yield a no down payment device on your next upgrade (as I was told) only to find out, 11 months down the line that the credit status changed, and you suddenly realize all that time you made ontime payments, changed your bad habit and showed initiative meant nothing, and it didnt matter – you could have been late and it wouldnt matter and wasted your time trying to show a company you are better – only to be told one month before upgrade that you wont be getting a new device for another 2 more years. That doesnt breed loyalty, what that breeds is churn and a great way for AT&T and Verizon and Sprint (as bad as their network is, as limited as their international options are) to pick up customers who not only want, but in many cases due to fragility of our devices these days, NEED a new device yearly or bi-yearly. Lets be real here.

    • Singleweird

      after 3 years all accounts become well-qualified except extremely specific situations. so tenure is definitely taken into account.

      • capt sick of being so obvious

        Thats already a thing ^^^^^^^^

      • Willie D

        Yeah but once your 2 year old device is paid off, who is going to stay another year, just to get a lowered down payment? Not me. Especially when other carriers, are offering deposits and $0 down payment up front financing plans, combined, that still is less than what T-Mobile charges for a deposit and EIP upfront payment. AND that includes a new device every year or two, rather than every 3. Like T-Mobile baited you to come, then told you, awesome now that you came, got a nice low EIP payment upfront, just so you know, we wont let you get another phone for 3 more years, and you still need to pay this one off, and yes, you will pay on time but that means nothing… Yeah, if that is the case, Sprint is looking a lot better, and my devices will work on them.

        • former Tmo rep

          Have you tried not having bad credit? Because, newsflash, your credit class determines your down payment, and your credit determines your credit class. Sprint, ATT, and Verizon will all charge you deposits if your credit is bad enough to be CC D or lower, and ATT and Verizon won’t qualify you for Next/Edge at all.

        • EndlessIke

          I don’t think T-Mobile is very interested in looking more attractive for customers who are bad credit risks. These kinds of customers are probably low margin ones you accept, not the type you roll out a new marketing ploy to lure.

        • KEEP IT REAL

          yeah everything looks better till that other company runs your credit, if you don’t have good credit history you are not going to qualify for 0 down everywhere, come on!! can’t be mad at anyone but yourself.

    • keep it real

      no offense, but two years is nothing in the wireless industry as the standard contract , or now offered standard financing is 24 months , just saying! and the person below you is right, your well qualified status changes at 3 years, if your credit isn’t great

  • Mirad77

    Some more good news? I can really use one now.

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    It will probably be few different announcements wrapped in 8.0. Some sort of plan for 700 MHz problem markets, launch of 700 MHz, Taking over Sprint as the No 3 carrier, Freebies and discounts for loyalty to T Mobile.

  • GedsGeddy

    Maybe they’re telling us how bad they suck at getting us the Nexus 6.

    • capt. obvious

      Its a nexus thing! not a Tmobile thing! Tell them aBout it

      • GedsGeddy

        I agree, but they should be communicating at least and not selling without telling people it’s backordered.

  • nutmac

    OK, I will bite.

    1. Price includes taxes and fees, like MetroPCS.

    2. On family plan without unlimited, customize your family’s own bandwidth: (1) shared, (2) pick specific bandwidth for each line, or (3) split it evenly.

    3. 2.5GB/line promo extended to plans with 1-3 lines.

    4. New iOS and Android T-Mobile apps (widgets for bandwidth used, support for new phones, new look).

    • Willie D

      I think of all these the biggest one is #1. People are upset with prorated, taxes, and surcharges charged. They see $50 and think it will be $50, and later see its one partial month, partial taxes, surcharges and fees, then see another full month up front, taxes, surcharges and fees and now they are walking out the door in 20 days to pay a bill for 1 month 3 weeks of service. And they only had it for less than that. Combining it all into one simple bill format including prorate, taxes, fees, etc would be great.

      • I completely agree.

      • pramarama

        Problem is, that doesn’t translate well for marketing. You’re selling yourself short if you advertise a $50 plan, $10 cheaper than the next guy, but really it’s $25 cheaper.

  • benben

    Free phone to everyone

  • Singleweird

    JUMP! on accessories and reduction in the price of unlimited data are my guesses. See you tomorrow :)

  • Peter Truong From Riverside CA

    Unlimited tethering for family plan?

    • Chris

      hopefully, he posted a picture with 8 sideways which is basically infinity sign past few weeks. so it looks like it definitely has something to do with unlimited.

  • J.J.

    surpassed sprint
    $10 to $20 off the top of regular rate plans!!
    some modification to jump to entice more users to join

    • Willie D

      I still have JUMP 1.0 on one of my lines, glad I get to keep it if I upgrade, as those 2x per year I want to trade up I can, rather than pay 50% off and trade in the device.

      • J.J.

        yea 1.0 is much better. all but a distant memory for most lol

      • Goat

        Same :D

  • HMarrr

    Google Play store app that provides WiFi calling on unlocked and unbranded devices would be absolutely amazing!

  • lynyrd65

    Unlimited Nationwide 4G LTE for tablets!

    • jd

      This one seems quite plausible. With 6″ phones getting unlimited data, it wouldn’t be too big of a stretch. Plus, no one else is doing it as far as I know.

      • lynyrd65

        Exactly, tablets use similar amounts of data with modern smartphones pulling down 1080p video streams.

        They really aren’t that different anymore. I use far more data on my phone than my tablet these days because of convenience.

        It could be a huge differentiator for T-Mobile to capture the tablet market.

    • lynyrd65

      Maybe next time…….

  • kev2684

    single line love!

    1 line unlimited everything – $80
    2 lines unlimited everything – $100

    it doesn’t make any sense.

    • Cap. Obvious

      ^^^^^^^ yes it makes complete sense. Think about it and then come back to me.

      • 1st mate obvious

        Cap. Obvious has a valid point.

        • thepanttherlady

          Same email address as Cap. Obvious. Nothing fishy here……

    • gandalf the right answer

      alright listen here @kev2684 Tmobile is trying to increase their customer base.
      So there for the most obvious “better deal” for only 20 bucks more! why not add 2 lines instead of one! BOOM ROASTED

    • czaplin

      Extra line is $40 not $10 on this family plan.

      • Gandalf u have the wrong answr

        its a promo plan

    • czaplin

      Metro pcs has the same unlimited plan for $60 (no roaming).

      • Cj

        You don’t get hotspot with metro pcs

    • jacky

      which is why you go with 2 lines unlimited for only $100. and its grandfather in.

    • jacky

      also family plans is more valuable then individual plans by far.

  • Mike Coleman

    i’d love to go in with the lowering of rate plans, but it doesn’t make too much sense to me. why announce the bringing back of the 4 for 100 w/2.5 gb data, and the new 2 for 100 unlimited plans just to turn around and offer a change on those a week later. while nice in the long run for consumers, that doesnt fit with the “easy and simplicity” of uncarrier themed moves

    • nutmac

      Agreed. But I am hoping $100 w/2.5GB would extend to 1-3 lines as part of 8.0 and unlimited plan price reduction extending to individual unlimited plan ($10 seems fair).

      • randy

        You can get that plan with 3 lines i have it cause i was paying the 120 for 3gb on each line i asked and they gave it to me you just have to be persistent

  • Paul Garrison

    FYI, there are sales on Tmobile.com

  • Elier Ruiz

    LTE in pcs band going live all over the country before the year is over..I’m guessing.

  • VG

    I’m hoping for the ability to dynamically allocate the buckets of high speed data amongst the lines on the same Family Plan. I hate wasting high speed data on the lines that use very little data, would love to be able to assign a portion of that data bucket to the lines that use more.

    This would give everyone the best of both worlds. I know people who would never leave AT&T or Verizon because they like the shared data pool concept; this would give those customers another reason to join T-Mobile.

    • Willie D

      So you want a share plan? AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, even Ting have you covered. T-Mobile likes everyone to have their own bucket. If you are wasting high speed data, then you are on the wrong plan and need less.

      • VG

        I have the $100 promo right now (4 lines at 2.5GB each with unlimited talk & text through Jan 2016). I’d love to be able to shift some of the 2.5GB on lines 3 & 4 onto lines 1 and 2 (for example, I would like lines 1 & 2 to have 3.5GB each, and lines 3 & 4 to have 1.5GB each). I don’t think T-Mobile offers me a cheaper Family Plan option to get to this configuration.

        • David

          Actually you can, for $10 you get 4.5gb

        • Jeremy

          I would lock in the best deal you can. As we have no idea what prices will be in 2016. This why I didn’t move.

      • nutmac

        T-Mobile can make it configurable between (1) default/current cap, (2) dynamically shared pool, and (3) user configurable to specific amount. That would eliminate one barrier for switching for many.

  • me123

    It could be a intro of a loyalty program. Kind of like save 1% for each year of service. I know for a fact that something like this was discussed as one of the uncarrier moves in the past.

  • Bdubbs

    Think it’ll have anything to do with the vodaphone move mentioned already and target businesses??

  • former Tmo rep

    Sprint was only able to do that because of how Sprint SMS/MMS was configured at the start. Since T-Mobile uses traditional GSM texting, that won’t work until VoLTE is rolled out universally

  • wrata

    Unleash small business!

    • jacky

      with voda phone your simple choice global plan just got twice as big it will get expanded.

    • Derek

      This has my vote! The changes in internal infrastructure support this. It’s all go on Small Business.

  • TrueCopy

    Hoping there’s a little bit of love for 3-line plans. It seems like these are stuck in the middle a bit. The combination of the two recent promos doesn’t seem very “simple” or “Uncarrier” to me… so a simplification of everything (and chance for 3-liners to save some cash without finagling with unused 4th liens, etc) would be nice.

    • annc

      I have a 3-line plan and am saving with the move to Family Time Unlimited (2/$100, 3rd line is add’l $40). We were all on 5GB before for $150 total, now $140 and all unlimited!

  • peharri

    The clue in their tweet is something about “big” and “uinder wraps” (“So big we had to keep it under wraps”), which… no, I can’t think of anything either.

    Here’s some things I’d like (it isn’t any of these I’m just posting a wishlist):

    1. Let your T-Mobile number be accessed either over the cell network or over VoIP. They have to implement the latter anyway thanks to LTE, but in theory you could receive your calls not just using your phone, but in a web browser, or, for more advanced users, using a variety of off-the-shelf SIP clients and/or devices. Think of it like Google Talk+Voice, except native to T-Mobile.

    2. A massive increase, like 10x, in data allowances. Why roll out LTE, and before that HSPA+, etc, if you’re going to pretend it’s still 2005 and you’re AT&T?

    • hanfeedback

      Im going to go with no on both of these

      • peharri

        Yeah, like I said it’s a wishlist.

        The first would probably be hard to market anyway, even if it’s a great product. Second… that might actually be easy to do and that really would be an uncarrier thing.

    • Spanky

      With a lot of T-Mobile’s footprint still being on EDGE, they don’t have to pretend it’s still 2005. Sorry, had to…

  • Derrick

    I’m a sprint subscriber and my service is great in Ohio but I still get excited with T-Mobile annoucnents because it’s funny to see these carriers go at each other’s necks with promos and stuff. Consumers win!

  • Austin

    $50 fully unlimited talk/text/web with a capped speed, like 3 Mbps- plenty fast for average users

    • pengko

      where have you been? they have that 2 lines for 100 bucks with unlimited everything

      • Austin

        That’s an $80 plan…. I was talking the plan that’s usually 1 GB

  • Raiterio Patterson

    WiFi calling activated for iPhone 5, & Nexus 5 phones NOT bought from T-Mobile??!!

    • Whiskers

      My wifes Iphone 5S already has wifi calling now.

      • skittle

        I think he meant that the 5 doesn’t have it.

    • nutmac

      I frankly think WiFi calling is overrated. Granted, if you are in a place without T-Mobile signal, it can be a godsend. But it isn’t something you will want to enable 100% of the time.

      1. Unless your phone has VoLTE, with weak Wi-Fi signal (which can happen if you walk around or something interferes with your signal, such as microwave oven), your call may drop, fail to connect, or become garbled.

      2. VoLTE does not transition from LTE to 2G/3G. In other words, an LTE voice call will drop if the phone hands off to 2G or 3G tower.

      • Mike Palomba

        I believe that VoLTE does hand off to HSPA because my iPhone 6 has VoLTE and I’ve never dropped a call when I lost LTE.

        • Jay Holm

          My S4 still hasn’t been updated to VoLTE yet. . . . .

        • Kidney_Thief

          And it never will be.

        • nutmac

          My wife and I have iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and we experienced many call drops. They mostly disappeared once we disabled VoLTE. And Verizon support document also reaffirms my theory (http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/advanced-calling-faqs/):

          Q: When I’m using Advanced Calling 1.0, what can I do to avoid dropped calls if I m in a weak 4G LTE coverage area?

          A: If you’re in an area with a weak 4G LTE signal, you may want to consider temporarily turning off the VoLTE Call setting on your phone to avoid dropped calls.

          Note: Remember to turn it back on when you’re in a strong 4G LTE coverage area to take advantage of HD Voice and Video Calling.

          Q: I noticed an increase in dropped calls or other audio quality issues since adding Advanced Calling 1.0. What should I do?

          A: Advanced Calling 1.0 is a first-generation service based on new technology that will improve over time. While the new technology enables exciting new features, like HD Voice and Video Calling, you may initially notice some differences in your calling experience. As needed, you can turn Advanced Calling 1.0 off through your phone’s settings.

      • Raiterio Patterson

        Well I live in the boonies so I need WiFi calling at my house, but you’re right i won’t keep it on 100% of the time.

  • jacky

    i am soo excited, i got a hard on right now.

  • jacky

    uncarrier 8 will be rollover your unused data alootment into next billing cycle and so forth. you hear from me first.

    • JBLmobileG1

      This would be great if they did this with your tethering. While I hardly ever use what I currently have (3gb) per month, it would be nice to be able to build it up. Then on my next vacation I wouldn’t have any worries about tethering my laptop on the go and using up all my data. Unlimited tethering would be Awesome but as much as I’d hope for that, I’d doubt it would ever happen. Would be nice though. ;)

    • That would be great, if they weren’t offering such great unlimited plans, well that $100 family plan is great, but then again it is promotion.

  • Jason Crumbley

    The announcement will be that they actually have 64GB Nexus 6’s in stock.

    • Eric Blackman

      My store told me yesterday 2 weeks on 32 GB, 6-8 weeks on 64 GB.

      • Jason Crumbley

        Looks like I have three more weeks. My order for a 64GB version has been backordered for 25 days and counting.

    • Jason Madura

      Hahahaha! Hilarious!!!! Good one!

  • Mike Palomba

    I have a feeling this uncarrier event won’t be as exciting as the last few

    • The last one itself wasn’t at all exciting to me. I hope it’s like include taxes to be included in plans, so it’ll be a solid rate, ala Cricket. That’s an actual pain point for a lot of people.

      • Stone Cold

        They only do that on the metro side.

  • VG

    I doubt announcing Wideband LTE rollout in NYC qualifies as an Uncarrier event; T-Mo has been issuing press releases each time Wideband LTE is turned on in each area (including NYC).

    I have to believe it will be something that has never been officially announced. Maybe Band 12 being turned on officially, maybe something new to do with cellular data, etc.

    I find it odd that T-Mo is choosing to announce Uncarrier 8.0 via a Yahoo interview, rather than hosting their own event. My sense is that Uncarrier 8.0 will not be a huge announcement, but something on a smaller scale,

    • Derek

      Wifi Unleashed was 7.0 from the inside of a Tmobile store in Washington. That was anticlimatic, this one will be bigger.

  • david

    no more carrier bloat but everything is available on their respective app stores

  • EJFUD

    Maybe he had an experience -> like a chicken egg- you know ->newly layed and feels like he’s experiencing life for the 1st X from a safe and warm protective layer that will hopefully protect Tmo until someone decides to buy tmo when it gets feathers = more customer base and then its on to the FULL-MONTY…

  • LTEstyles

    No idea of what will happen tomorrow?? I miss the old tmonews…

    • T-Mobile Employee

      Not cam’s fault on that one. T-Mobile used to be more open with their employees of upcoming changes. Uncarrier 1, 2, 3 and, 4 were all know by employees before it was announced. T-Mobile execs have been keeping everything big pretty hushed lately.

  • JBLmobileG1

    I think an uncarrier move would be to let anyone who has jump, use one of their jumps to say, refinance your phone. All the other carriers are copying T-Mobile with plans similar to jump where you can pay off your phone in monthly installments. Why not let the one who still would like to keep their phones for a bit longer, use a jump to refinance (if you will) and get the cheaper rate. For example, I am still paying on my Note 3, $29.50 a month. Now it’s going for under $18. I don’t really want to upgrade my phone yet…. but it would be nice if I could take advantage of one of my jumps by keeping my current phone except with the lower monthly payment. I think this would be an Amazing move and really make jump! stand out from all the rest.

    • Interesting

    • kenneth arnold

      Well you could just jump to the same phone

      • JBLmobileG1

        I was told this, however, you must setup everything all over again which can be a pain. Plus… you end up paying taxes again. Also, what if you get a lemon and you have issues with it and must send it back? Not only would it be a pain for you it would be a pain for Tmobile and they would probably lose money. Just have them let you use a jump on your current phone with the current pricing. It’s like refinancing only you use one of your jumps to do so.

        • kenneth arnold

          Well with modern phones setup is a breeze

        • JBLmobileG1

          Easier with apps etc… but like I said if you jump to another phone that is the same and it is buggy then your in for a headache… having to send it back etc. Besides… you’d end up paying taxes all over again so what would be the point? The money you could have saved by just refinancing with your jump! wouldn’t be worth the time or hassle then because you’d probably be paying $60. You may save a little but you could save more by keeping the same exact phone that you already have instead of getting a new one that is the same.

    • bob90210

      If you are not going to upgrade, why did you buy an upgrade plan?

      • JBLmobileG1

        I have upgraded once already from the Note 2 to the Note 3. I just don’t see anything I really want at this time… I was thinking about the Note 4 but I may just hold out for the 5…. or even a phone that takes advantage of 64bit. Also I have jump! because it also is insurance and includes Lookout…. so to a me it’s not a bad deal considering insurance alone was $7.99 for me before jump! came about. It gives me the option to get a new phone twice a year, which is nice to have. Good enough answer?

      • maestroalvarez

        One reason to upgrade plan, bob90210 is that it is cheaper to cover your phone. (Technically speaking, one should cover the phone directly with the manufacturer. -i.e. Samsung covers their devices for a one time fee of $100 for Galaxy S devices or $129 for Galaxy Note Series devices- This covers the device for two years with up to 3 replacements, with no deductible)

  • DirkDigg1er

    Rumor is Uncarrier 8.0 will focus on tablets.

    • yeah right

      T-Mobile is desperately trying to sell more of those also… Hopefully its LTE tablets for some as WiFi again. In that case nexus 9 here I come

    • AJ

      Correct. With that being said, my guess would be Unlimited 4GLTE Data plans for tablets.

  • Larry Bublitz

    If they would get rid of all data restrictions, that would be a huge painpoint gone. If we’re not quite ready as a society to get rid of all data restrictions, just throw a huge chunk of data at every plan (or double or triple everything now), then double or triple everything again down the road. That, combined with their 2015 tower conversion plans, would mess up the competitors big time and help us all use the heck out of our phones.

    • Justin Cookston

      We at T-Mobile offer Unlimited high speed data and do have current offers to get in on that plan for a lot less than normal. Yes you read that right. Unlimited high speed data! No limits, slow downs, caps, or restrictions.

  • DANG IT!!!!! I HAVE A JOB INTERVIEW AT THAT TIME!!!!!!!!!

  • 2TO8

    Well I received a post card saying that I am getting all the features of the simple choice but that I will be keeping the same plan.. I called because I misread it and the employee explained that my plan wouldn’t change but that I’d have all the features of the simple choice plan..

  • Will

    I bet they announce D.C. wideband LTE. I actually got 65 down and 21 up yesterday in PG County. If they have upgraded PG County, you can bet the rest of the D.C. Metro area is upgraded as well. I just wish that they could improve coverage. I don’t like walking down the street to make a call.

      I think this is part of it, also something about domestic roaming.

      • Mike Palomba

        I must say domestic roaming would be nice. And even though t-Mobile customers being able to use vodaphones network completley unthrottled I doubt it but if that did happen then T-Mobile would easily be the best carrier providing coverage not only in the US but abroad as well.

        • hanfeedback

          I think it could happen. Im surprised that at least it;s not happening in countries where DT has a presence. In some countries like Germany Vodafone and DT exist as competitors and in Croatia they don’t even have that as part of their free roaming / 20c deal even though Tmobile is there also. I will be in 2 countries for an extended period of time with TMobile and one with Vodafone in less than 3 months so I am really hoping this is part of it as this would be incredibly useful to me!

        • Mike Palomba

          Well even if it does happen it won’t be happening in the next 3 months. Maybe mid next year

        • hanfeedback

          Well if it’s part of tomorrow’s announcement which is obviously speculation at this point then I can’t imagine they would wait 3 months to implement it.

  • Joey

    I think there going to just announce that some of their devices will be on sale…

    • skittle

      Thats not uncarrier though. Reduced prices on devices in AT&T, Verizon ect.

    • sidekicker89

      No offense Joey but seriously? lol

  • Kyjeepbear

    OMG enough with the no taxes thing. I’m so sick of that, it’s the US, you pay taxes on everything you do, living or dead. If your plan ends up being $50 flat rate, that only means that your plan is REALLY $46.84 (or whatever the magic number may be) plus tax to equal $50. Then you’ll want it for $46.84 with no taxes.

    • VG

      I don’t mind paying taxes, but the cellular service industry seems to be incapable of telling you exactly what those taxes and fees will be on your postpaid monthly bill until AFTER your first bill for actual service is generated (basically, you have to actually sign up for service to find out what those taxes and fees are). And there seems to be some inconsistency on what jurisdiction is used for calculation of taxes and fees (some carriers use billing zip code, others use the area code of the cell phone number).

      The vague disclaimer that taxes and fees will add “10% to 40%” to your monthly bill is onerous, outrageous and unacceptable. A 40% tax sounds more like Europe, not the US.

      • Derek

        I can’t speak for all carriers but the bill I get from Tmo breaks the taxes down per line. It’s very straight forward. Maybe it’s about the quality of the representative you’re working with rather than the smoke and mirrors deception your suggesting the companies are trying to achieve.

        • Mr. Brown

          You won’t know those numbers until AFTER you sign up… that’s what he’s complaining about. They just give you a rough estimate beforehand, i.e. “10 to 40% of the total bill.”

        • VG

          Thanks for clarifying my point! :)

  • Greg T

    hmm..no one has mention that it could be paying off phone financing from other carriers. This is the biggest pain for my customers trying to switch but owe 3,000$ on phones.

    • jacky

      jesus $3000??? holy crap what did they buy under eip form other carriers.

      • Greg T

        four iPhone 6 plus or four note 4’s. This actually happens quite a bit, and they cant switched because of it.

    • Idfwy

      If that were to happen I would gladly come back to T-Mobile.

  • Johhny7

    not worth waiting for the Nexus 6…. in few months the phones with the new Snapdragon 810 (64 bit) with Adreno 430 GPU will be announced..

    • bob90210

      There will always be new phones announced in the next few months.

  • pengko

    all i have to say is…. 4glte data allowance then throttling to 3g instead of 2g speeds.

  • TmoUser

    That’s on Verizon due to CDMA. Us T-Mobile folks have the ability to transition a VoLTE call down to the 3g/2g network.

  • pbxtech

    Wonder if band 12 roll-out is included in this announcement. The NYC Market and it’s suburbs can definitely benefit from it.

    Found a little tidbit about WNJN TV forum from LUCINDA “can no longer received any signal on channel 52 – 3 months ago”. Channel 52’s, assigned frequency of 698Mhz to 704Mhz, which conflicts the Uplink side of band 12 – 699Mhz to 707.5Mhz.

    NJTV forum –> http://www(dot)njtvonline(dot)org/uncategorized/make-njtv-a-favorite/

    • pbxtech

      Looks like WNJN has vacated channel 50.1 and 52.1 about 2-3 months ago.

  • Allen Enriquez

    Unlimited Global Everything!

  • Ray

    I think they will announce that they have overtaken Sprint for the #3 spot. And to celebrate, they will address another pain point.

  • Andrew N Jensen

    What would very amazing is if the only throttled through slow speed data plans when the network got congested. That way those who pay more still get priority but us with a cheaper plan would sometimes if not the majority of the time enjoy faster speeds.

    • NorCalOffspring

      Or at least throttle to 2mbps

  • mike

    it would be nice if they could make every single customer put $0 down regardless of their credit. or no taxes on their bill. that would be amazing.

    • NorCalOffspring

      Are you referring to $0 for financing a phone?

      • zerocool0

        Down payment base on credit. Would not be a good thing. Since customer had or is having credit issues. Company could lose quite a bit on unpaid phones.

  • Johnnola504

    Would be cool if they would allow you to use two cell phones on one line. I love my iPhone 6+, but I also like android and would like to try the Nexus six.

    • lsuisme69 .

      I’m currently using 4 phones on one line…. Note 4, nexus 5, g3, and s5 …. Tmobile doesn’t stop you from using multiple phones on one line. Just pop your sim into whatever phone you have.

      • Bklynman.

        I think he means the same number on different sim,at the same time. Not sure if that is possible.

        • Johnnola504

          That was my point.

        • Will

          It’s not that hard to swap the sim card from phone to phone. I use both a Oneplus One, an iPhone, and a Nokia Lumia 635. I have to use a sim adapter for the Nokia phone.

  • Deez Nutz

    I’m hoping they announce some sales for existing customers. A majority of the sales they have are for new lines only. Note 4 had a $36 discount a couple of days ago, but only for new lines. It’s not a lot considering how much the phone is, but at least it pays for shipping and part of the tax.

  • Rodman

    I’m hoping for more domestic roaming. Where I live there are fairly large holes in service where I get zero signal. This is my biggest pain point at the moment.

    • Justin Cookston

      FCC is who you wanna direct that concern to. T-Mobile hears you and has be lobbying for lower domestic data rates, and the FCC is fielding that concern. It’s on the government at this point, so I’m willing to bet it’s going to be a while before we get resolution.

  • Steve

    Hoping it’s not focused on just obtaining new customers. They’ve made great progress on this front, but now they need to retain these customers and the best way is to continue aggressively building out their network. I know this isn’t uncarrier philosophy, but they will start losing these customers because of coverage. I may be one of them because of relocation to an area that TMo isn’t strong in.
    Uncarrier shook the market and forced the other providers into price reductions that are now pretty competitive. Three years ago the difference for similar ATT service was $50-$80 a month. Now it’s $10-$20. Pricing is less important and coverage is more.

    • Spanky

      My thoughts exactly. I left T-Mobile for AT&T due to lack of coverage and horrible data speeds in my area. I get a 25% discount with AT&T through my employer, which makes it a no-brainer. With that being said, I love what T-Mobile is doing to shake up the industry and encourage competition. If their coverage ever gets to the level of AT&T or Verizon, I’ll definitely consider getting back on board.

  • TOOBIGTOFAIL

    Uncarrier 8.0 maybe about unlimited data on mobile internet devices, this would revolutionize everything. People would quit their cable subscription in a heartbeat or maybe not. The most imperative move T-mobile can take is upgrading their infrastructure, towers and purchasing more spectrum from the U.S government. There always some sort of issue in the T-mobile stores with their POS systems, there is always a delay in simply paying your bill or at times systems are completely down. Customer service is one of the best compared to the other carriers, but basic transactions are a hassle. I agree that T-mobile indeed needs to improve their coverage in order to fairly compete with behemoths such as AT&T and Verizon.

  • Jaramie Black

    Rollover data official!

  • Nick

    It is not live yet.

    • Jaramie Black

      yes it is, I am watching it now.

  • Jermaine Coakley Sr.

    It’s about time! Rollover data!

  • Jaramie Black

    10 gigs of free data to ALL CUSTOMERS, NEW OR OLD to start.

  • Jaramie Black

    #DATASTASH

  • Nick

    wtf rollover data ??? T-mobile can do better than this

    • jdubb2600

      It’s actually a good thing for those who have tablets with data caps but don’t use much. 2gb of data on a tablet is nice but you always make sure you don’t go over. But now that you can “STASH DATA” that you don’t use

    • Marcelo_L

      For folks that aren’t on unlimited plans, this does make a lot of sense dude…..us Unlimited grandpa’s aren’t enhanced by this, but don’t poo poo this for others just because it doesn’t do anything for you specifically.

      A LOT of the Uncarrier moves have NOT affected me in the LEAST, at least not directly. What they have done is made TMo stronger, which in turn, at least indirectly, is good for me. A stronger TMo means better services for me, hence why I’ve been with them as long as I have.

  • Nick

    I do not see it. I keep refreshing it but just black screen on my end on all browsers

  • Nick

    Boooooo to chrome browser and Safari. Kudos Firefox!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kev2684

    does data stash work with 5gb of tethering?

    • Jaramie Black

      good question. It works with tablets.

    • Marcelo_L

      I can’t see it NOT working, because data is data is data. Unless they’ve make/state some provision that explicitly excludes it. I would err on the side of saying you’d keep it.

    • Godmx

      Yes if you have a mobile data plan for example: Personal hotspot device with 5GB of data is eligible for data stash.

  • Pico

    Only Firefox seems to be able to play live.

  • Third_Eye

    From David Pogue of Yahoo Tech news interview.
    a) Yep. 10G Free data to start in DATA STASH.
    b) Something like rollover for Data.
    Excellent one if implemented. I loved the singular rollover minutes and wished the first carrier who does for data in a data limited plan would be interesting. But at that time we had a unlimited data option from various carriers. Now most carrier is doing away with this.

    My only fear is if will lead to death of unlimited slowly….
    c) Confirmed 1900MHz will be upgraded from 2G to 4G LTE.

    • Marcelo_L

      I would say “yes”, but the definition of “Limited” will more than likely change a bit as well. The “Data limits” of today will likely not be the limits of tomorrow…what would’ve seemed as high limited today will seem as very constrained tomorrow.

      I do agree with you that this is something we should definitely keep an eye on, however.

    • Jrunner

      It’s on the t-mobile website now… I noticed that you have to have a 3 GB per month or higher Simple Choice phone plan to get it (or 1 GB or higher tablet plan). Guess I’m out of luck with my 1 GB plan on this one. Oh well. Guess I’ve survived long enough up to this point. Still, sort of disappointing.

      • Third_Eye

        Yep. I too am in the 1G data plan for 2 lines, though I am expecting a unlimited LTE from the next billing cycle, since I referred a friend of mine to T-Mo.

        I would have been happy if I just had a rollover without the 10G preliminary stash for the other line.

        So Uncarrier 8.0 is of no consequence to me. A little disappointing.

  • Jaramie Black

    260 million people are able to access T Mobiles LTE today!

  • Chris Hilbert

    Wished it covered the 2.5 GB or 1 GB lines.

    • Marcelo_L

      Did they specifically state that it didn’t?

      I would be surprised if it didn’t cover the 2.5 Gb lines. The 1Gb lines, yes, those are understandably low-end data plan lines, and priced accordingly. Now, if they’d tired the #DataStash to ENHANCE the 1Gb lines…..like…say…give’m 2Gb to start, and then let them stash up to 5Gb……I could see A LOT ( and I do mean A LOT ) of people switching over to use them instead of the competition.

      Just sayin’ TMo….Just sayin’.

    • Alex Pilaia

      it covers all simple choice plans..

      • Chris Hilbert

        From the Press Release on newsroom.t-mobile.com:

        Starting in January 2015, Data Stash will be automatically available at no extra charge to every T-Mobile customer – every individual, family and business – with a postpaid Simple Choice plan who has purchased additional 4G LTE data, 3GB or more for smartphones and 1 GB or more for tablets. And, you’ll start out with a Free Data Stash with up to 10 GB of 4G LTE data.

      • Jrunner

        Not according to the T-mobile website… 3 GB plans or higher Simple Choice plans

  • colonelcasey

    Not valid on the 1GB plan? Booo…I’m still a Simple Choice customer but I don’t get the benefit. I thought Uncarrier covered all Simple Choice customers and only excluded those on pre-paid or Starter lines. Now they’re creating another separate class in their plans? Thanks for keeping it “simple”.

    • Marcelo_L

      See my comment below…..you never know though. It could come about. Then again, your plan is priced a WHOLE lot lower than mine, I’m sure.

      • colonelcasey

        It’s only $10 less than the 3GB plan. I usually come in under a gig but it’d be nice to know I’d have a built-up buffer for the random month I do end up going over.

  • Alex Pilaia

    This was my idea!!!!! I mailed Tmobile a letter stating all of this few months back! Great to hear Tmo is listening to its customers…

  • Jaramie Black

    Data rolls over for 1 entire year. Then it expires.

    • colonelcasey

      I’m sure it has to be on a 12-month rolling calendar. Which isn’t too terrible.

      • Jaramie Black

        I have unlimited data, so it doesnt bother me.

  • eazy75217

    interesting…I have the true unlimited plan but dang this is pretty neat for those who aren’t data whores like myself haha.

    • Chris

      very tempted now to change my tablet plans if I can get the 5 GB I would get paired with my unlimited plan to count. So I guess it would start essentially at 15 GB for the first month?

    • Goat

      For me it’s hard to data whore on an iOS device..But the most data-intensive app I have is BaconReader >:3

  • Chris

    So this would not be included on the 4 lines @ 2.5 GB each for $100?

    • Frank

      Correct. 3GB & higher plans

  • Chris

    So this would not be included on the 4 lines @ 2.5 GB each for $100?

  • nad

    Would like to see the 8.0 keynote, any link?

  • RJ

    Hmm interesting, does this data stash only work for lte plans only or all 4g plans as long as you have a 3gb hot spot data attached to your monthly plan. I also hope that T-mobile starts unleashing heavily phones that enables the 700mhz lte bands as well. Also with a UnC=carrier start time of 730 am on the west coast how wired on caffeine and curse words will Legere be. Will Tmobile go after some kind of similar cut your rate in half promotion like sprint is doing as well. There has to be something ridiculous here as well, wouldn’t be surprised if the do version 9.0 as well. A week before Christmas and a early morning start time on the west, this one could be the best and most dangerous Uncarrier yet.
