T-Mobile’s Un-carrier 11 move includes free stuff every week and stock in the company

tmobilegetthanked

T-Mobile has made 10 big Un-carrier moves in the past, including Music Freedom and Binge On, and today T-Mo turned things up to 11.

Un-carrier 11 is now official, and with it, T-Mobile wants to thank its customers. The first part of the move is T-Mobile Tuesdays, a new app that’ll let subscribers get a free medium two-topping Domino’s pizza, a small Wendy’s Frosty, and a VUDU movie rental every Tuesday. These free goodies will be available to all customers with an active T-Mobile monthly rate plan, including postpaid, prepaid, and business customers. Every line on your account is eligible for T-Mobile Tuesdays giveaways.

In addition to those weekly goodies, the T-Mobile Tuesdays app will include a surprise gift every week. The first surprise gift, which comes tomorrow, is a free ticket to the new movie Warcraft. The week of June 14 will offer a free Lyft ride up to $15, June 21 will bring a free $20 gift card for MLB.com, and June 28 will bring a one-year subscription to Bon Appétit magazine. The T-Mobile Tuesdays app will also let you enter to win bigger prizes that include things like a trip to MLB All-Star Week and a $10,000 New York City shopping spree.

Finally, if you share photos of your T-Mobile Tuesdays goodies on social media with the hashtag #GetThanked, you could win extra stuff like a Domino’s pizza party or free Lyft rides for a month.

The T-Mobile Tuesdays app for Android is now live, and you can get it right here. The iOS app can be found right here. T-Mo also says that Windows 10 Mobile users can access T-Mobile Tuesdays on the web.

The second piece of Un-carrier 11 is Stock Up. With this initiative, T-Mobile is rewarding its customers with stock in the company itself. Primary account holders on postpaid voice accounts can get a free share in T-Mobile, and you can earn up to 100 more shares in T-Mo by referring others to the carrier. You get one extra share in T-Mobile for each customer that you refer to the Un-carrier. Long-term customers can get even more shares: Anyone that’s been with T-Mo for five years or more can get two shares for every referral.

In order to get your free share of T-Mobile stock, you’ll need to sign up for an account with Loyal3. You can then claim your free stock through the T-Mobile Tuesdays app. Existing T-Mobile customers can claim their stock between June 7 and June 21, while new T-Mobile customers will have two weeks post-activation to claim their free share.

Finally, T-Mobile is one-upping the free Gogo in-flight texting feature that it launched in September 2014. Starting June 13, all T-Mobile customers can use iMessage, Google Hangouts, WhatsApp, and Viber for free with GoGo. T-Mo customers will also get one free hour of inflight Gogo Wi-Fi usage on their smartphones on every Gogo flight.

    Don’t forget about part 3 of this! 1 hour of free gogo in flight internet for each and every flight. Plus free in-flight Internet messaging for certain apps.

    • Acdc1a

      And in typical timely fashion, I’m traveling next week. Who else is in love with their wireless carrier?

      • pseudoswede

        Meh. Could’ve used it today. I bought an hour on my flight to do some work while en-route. Oh well, at least I can expense it.

        • KenP

          Note the free hour is only good for smartphones. “Any device with a valid T-Mobile phone number is eligible for the in-flight benefits.” Still a nice benefit.

        • BadBatz

          Well, the press release is a bit muddy:
          On one hand it says “We are giving all customers on a T-Mobile branded plan a free hour of Gogo in-flight Wi-Fi on your smartphone.”
          On the other, “Have a valid T-Mobile phone number” and every device on the network has a valid T-Mobile phone number (the iPad, ZTE hotspot, etc., too)…
          I still bet it is only for smartphones, no tethering.

        • pseudoswede

          I missed that little caveat that it’s for your smartphone only.

        • John

          “I missed that little caveat that it’s for your smartphone only.”

          I know, right? Its like every hour I’m learning about some new restriction or qualification that I didn’t notice in the initial media blitz about how wonderful this is supposed to be.

        • BadBatz

          That’s one hour from your smart phone, AFAIK no tethering, so pretty much useless for anything but email. Well, the glacial speed of GoGo makes it useful only for email anyway, at least on Delta.
          BTW, I’d LOVE to be wrong on the tethering!

        • Acdc1a

          What smartphone are you using? I can do virtually anything, business and pleasure, from my smartphone

      • John

        “Who else is in love with their wireless carrier?”

        Sad. Their whole purpose in existing is to extract money from you. The engineers jobs are to build a network and provide a service you are willing to pay for, but the marketing depts job is to manipulate you into paying as much as possible for as little as possible. They are not your friend.

        • Acdc1a

          John, as soon as you find me a carrier that gives me 5 lines of service with 10 GB of data per line with free Canada and Mexico roaming, free 2g data and text while abroad (even the Bahamas where I frequent), no data used for my streaming, and will do it under the $140 I pay out the door, then I’ll stop appreciating T-Mobile. The other free stuff like Gogo in flight service is just an added bonus I may only use 3 or 4 times per year.

          I’ll wait patiently.

        • John

          Wait, we went from “in love with a wireless carrier” to “Acdc1a is making a good decision for services and value.”

          I’m fully with you here. I’m still on tmobile despite these stupid uncarrier antics and Leger’s general douchbaggery. I’m still with tmobile because every time I check, tmob gives me the best value.

          If you’ll look at my last post, at no point do I say you *shouldn’t* have a contract with tmob – I think you *should* if their services meet your needs and their price is competitive.

  • PHL

    I missed the webcast. I’m a TMO customer with 4 lines, but the phone I use is a company-provided AT&T phone. Can I use the T-Mobile Tuesdays app on my phone?

  • Starcube

    Bene? Like Cafe Bene? :)

  • kgraham182

    Is there a windows 10 mobile app?

    • jonathan3579

      Ha!

    • Alex Wagner

      There isn’t an app, but the T-Mobile Tuesdays FAQ does say that Windows 10 Mobile can access T-Mobile Tuesdays on the web.

      https://www.t-mobiletuesdays.com/HowItWorks

      • kgraham182

        Thanks

  • Vernon

    Typo in the article – “Anyone that’s bene with T-Mo for five years or more can get two shares for every referral.”

    • Alex Wagner

      Thanks.

  • ancho84

    can anyone confirm if this is per line or per account for free stuff?

    • kev2684

      It looks like per line

      • PC_Tool

        Noice!

        Pizza’s, movies for a week, and the whole family’s going to See WoW.

        It’s good to have 5 lines (8, if you count the LTE tablets…sheesh.)

    • Acdc1a

      Per the FAQ’s “Every line can participate…”

    • Alex Wagner

      As noted by Acdc1a and kev2684, T-Mo says that “T-Mobile Tuesdays is open to every line on your account”

  • wplantz

    Is the free share of stock offered to prepaid accounts too? I’m on the $30 5GB web/Walmart plan. Many of the Uncarrier stuff doesn’t apply to this plan.

    • Topher1013

      I believe so!

    • Alex Wagner

      Unfortunately, no. T-Mobile says that Stock Up is only available to the primary account holder on postpaid consumer voice accounts.

      • wplantz

        I figured. Thanks!

    • GG

      Postpaid only. How would they track anyone on pre-paid? What if someone just adds 5 new lines every month then cancels…

  • Topher1013

    Tmobile is awesome. Let’s see what the other carriers do to try and keep there customers. #tmobilerocks

    • kgraham182

      Maintain the coverage gap should be enough to keep dumb and dumber customers happy.

    • Ordeith

      Maybe they’ll use the correct form of “their”?

      • Topher1013

        Oh I’m sorry English teacher! My bad only human lol

  • S. Ali

    This is really cool, I hope they can keep the weekly offers fresh and exciting. I mean 52 weeks later, we don’t want to see lame coupons or tiny discounts on expensive purchases.

    • Joe

      Since this is free, I won’t care if it’s the same thing. It’s all free. Basically they can do this or do nothing. I vote for them to do this.

    • Dylan Wentworth

      But you will.
      And you will also be required to download apps to redeem, just like with the stock offer. There’s never a free lunch.

  • Weird. I tried logging in the T-Mobile Tuesday app and I got this.
    http://imgur.com/JMD9EKU

  • I do not see any pain point, and even T-Mobile has a few, removed. Besides, no improvements to services or to the costs. Disappointed at Uncarrier losing steam after such a good run of 10.

    • Acdc1a

      Paying for in-flight internet is a pain point for everyone, not just wireless subscribers.

      • Thanks for the heads up. Wouldn’t have known about that from this article.

    • John

      Yeah this is gimmicky as hell. Thanks so-called uncarrier

  • Ishimaru

    So my question is, are you able to get all the rewards each week, or only choose one? Like can you get a frosty, a pizza AND the movie rental?

    • Joe

      It’s every week. And it’s per phone. So if you have a family plan of four phones, you get four pizza’s, four frosty’s, four movie rentals.. and four chances to win something big.

      • Ishimaru

        Since I’m the only one on my account, I get the pizza, frosty, movie rental and the movie tickets? In that singular week?

        • Joe

          You get pizza, frosty, and movie rental every Tuesday. You get the Warcraft movie ticket this week. Next week it’s something different. Not sure if I can be more clear than this.

        • Ishimaru

          It’s not that you’re not being clear, they just don’t state whether you get every reward each week, or your pick of one. That’s all. :)

        • Glenn Bolton

          Yes, John Legere was very clear in the presentation. You get the medium 2 topping, small frosty AND the free VUDU rental EACH week. All 3 each week.

        • John

          Damn ppl gonna die early

        • lomsha

          Lol

        • AJ2

          Tmobile. Get fat. They must be counting on a large percentage not redeeming. Thats a lot of $ in pizzas & Frostys

        • Joe

          frosty i won’t redeem most likely. the pizza and vudu movie I will though

        • Alex Wagner

          You get the pizza, Frosty, and movie rental each week. There will be another gift that’ll change each week. For example, this week it’s the ticket to Warcraft, the week of June 14 will be a free Lyft ride up to $15, and June 21 will be a free $20 gift card for MLB.com.

        • Ishimaru

          Cool, that’s what I was trying to figure out. Thanks Alex. :)

      • JLV90

        I don’t think my family can eat 7 pizzas every week :(

      • Homero Garza

        No way that’s insane

        • Ordeith

          Wouldn’t you rather have a lower bill?

        • PMB01

          That’s not a option. You’re an idiot complaining about free stuff.

        • Ordeith

          That’s not an option that T-Mobile pursued, you mean. They could have given something back the customers in the form of lower rate plans, but no.
          They’d rather sell out their customer base for some trinkets instead.

          You’re an idiot thinking there’s a such thing as free stuff. Somebody’s gotta pay for it, and in the case of most companies it’s built in the prices that customers pay. There is no getting something from nothing in this world.

        • John

          I am a T-Mobile customer and I must say most T-Mobile customers are in fact idiots. They are easily manipulated by legere

        • PMB01

          Wrong again. T-Mobile can pursue what they want. No one is selling out. This is paid promotion. T-Mobile is only gaining from this. I’m sorry you don’t like free things. Take off the tinfoil hat and enjoy life for once.

        • Ordeith

          And I’m sorry you only seem to have the severely limited economic understanding of a Bernie Sanders supporter.

        • PMB01

          Wrong yet again. Try again asshat.

        • Ordeith

          How so? Your economic illiteracy is all over the place for everyone to see. :)

        • PMB01

          Not at all, but your complete idiocy is definitely out there. Learn how marketing works, moron.

        • Ordeith

          I know how marketing works and understand the costs and values involved. You can’t even understand that you have to exchange money to get things.

        • PMB01

          Not always. Free things DO exist! We’re talking about small things here. Your extremist view of the economy is simply not reflective of reality.

        • PMB01

          And again, only a complete asshat complains about getting something for free.

        • Ordeith

          I’d rather have a lower bill than pay for free crap I don’t need.

        • PMB01

          Then it’s a good thing we’re not paying for it! Why are you complaining again? Most people are happy about getting free things.

        • Ordeith

          Because I’m not stupid enough to fall for the ruse, I know the costs are built into the bill. I’d rather they offer a lower bill than use a portion of those funds on such trinkets.

        • Glenn Bolton

          We already have a lower bill. Look at VZ/ATT rates. T-Mobile is like paying for StraightTalk/PrePaid pricing already but you can pay out a new phone vs all upfront or finding a cheap phone to use….and have good coverage.

  • Jose Hernandez

    So, how do you redeem the stock share?

    • Joe

      As the video said you have to sign up on a broker app which is free.. not sure which app they use as they didn’t say. Once you signed up the primary account holder gets their free share of stock which you can do what you want with.

    • Alex Wagner

      You register in the T-Mobile Tuesdays app, then the stock offer will be in the My Stuff folder in that app. You’ll need a Loyal3 account to receive stock, but you won’t have to pay a fee to receive the stock.

      • Stock Up…

        Great, thanks for this key information!

      • Jose Hernandez

        Thank you!

  • Dylan Wentworth

    Did anyone read the fine print yet?
    I can’t wait to see what permissions are required for the app.

    • Eric

      It requires contacts and phone permissions.

      • Dylan Wentworth

        And your wifi connection information too.
        I can’t think of why they need to know that or why the Android app is 55mb in size.
        Something tells me I should get some lube out.

        • steveb944

          If you’re using a carrier devices device they already know everything.

    • PMB01

      iOS app hasn’t asked for permission for anything, not even contacts.

  • AJ2

    Millions of free pizza every week? That’s a lot regardless of who’s picking up the tab or whatever promotional deals are involved

    • Dylan Wentworth

      i doubt seriously that it will be pizza every week. And how much you want to get to get the free pizza, you’ll have to download the pizza company app. Then you have their app and so the pizza company will make back their investment real fast.
      It’s going to turn out like a penny saver with a free coupon to something you don’t want, don’t need and never thought to buy to get you to try something.
      Not that that’s bad, just that you’re going to be signing up to receive junk mail basically. My guess.

  • NardVa

    I know what I’m getting for lunch tomorrow. A free medium two topping pizza.

    • John

      Are tmob customers really this cheap and desperate?

      • badassn

        Ah, never has envy been so obvious. I can’t wait to eat a nice, free pizza tomorrow.

        • Ascertion

          This logic doesn’t make sense to me. If I’m given an option for a FREE pizza vs a meal I had to pay for, regardless of my current financial status, I’d take the free pizza any time.

        • John

          Not trying to be rude here, but I’m guess you are around 20-22 years old?

        • John

          That’s not envy – if anything its shame

          . Is your life really so sad that you think other people are envious of the opportunity to jump through some hoops for ONE crappy *dominoes* pizza? I mean, its not even good pizza!

          And I worded my comment wrong, I should have said: “Are so many other tmob customers really this cheap and desparate?” Because I am a tmob customer and have been for over a decade. You guys are embarrassing me. I’m not talking about the people who think “Oh, okay; they are doing it, might as well get myself a ‘free’ crappy pizza”. That’s fine, whatever.

          I mean the people who act like this is OMG AMAZING I LOVE YOU TMOB. *Those* people make tmob look like a company built on exploiting the pathetic.

        • Ascertion

          I think being condescending towards others shows immaturity. Age does not matter. I think it is okay to get excited over getting something that you originally had to pay for. Sure the Uncarrier announcement could’ve been more network/industry focused, but calling people desperate and cheap on a T-Mobile fansite is kind of…ironic.

        • John

          “I think being condescending towards others shows immaturity”

          That’s cool, I’m not the most mature person here. But many of the comments here suggest that the speakers are trying really hard to spin this into something more positive than it really is. A medium pizza is a medium pizza, a drink is a drink.

          “desperate and cheap on a T-Mobile fansite is kind of…ironic.”

          Are you saying that we already know that most of us are desperate and cheap because we are tmobile customers? lol

  • Panzer

    I’d rather they take the money and invest it in the network. No one needs cheap freebies, this is gimmicky as heII

    • Dylan Wentworth

      It’s not their money.
      Everything being offered is a paid promo from a third-party company.
      They’re actually making money on the advertising and data, not losing money

      • Panzer

        So ad revenue then. Still would be better spent elsewhere.

        • Albert Orange

          How long have you been the CEO of a wireless carrier?

        • Panzer

          Likely about as long as you have.

        • Albert Orange

          HOLY SHIT… YOU’LL GET NO ARGUMENT FROM ME ABOUT THAT!!!

        • Dylan Wentworth

          But they’re going to generate income with this that they could use to expand the network, maybe buy some 600mhz spectrum. This kinds of thing also builds customer loyalty which is something you can’t put a price on.

        • John

          It seems to me that it only builds customer loyalty among idiots.

      • Derek

        I’f that’s true, you can expect your “free pizza” and other big “prizes” to last for about 2-3 months followed by a lot of free apps and contests with 1 prize and 66 million people entering. It’s no different then bing rewards and other prize sites.

        • Acdc1a

          Legere and company certainly committed these companies to a long term commitment. Think 12 months at a minimum.

        • Promotion goes through at least 12/31/16 according to the fine print. I expect this to lose steam quickly. I only got the share, movie, and Dominos. next week i’ll get the frosty maybe who knows, but I’ll likely not use all of em every week. I think Legere and Co. knows that. It’s gimmicky yeah, but i’ll take him up on the free VUDU every week.

        • Dylan Wentworth

          The gift that keeps on giving.
          I took the bait. So we’ll see.

        • Bing rewards takes zero effort on my part and I get Amazon giftcards that help offset my book habit.

  • Mike Palomba

    Honestly I don’t get all the complaints, this is awesome and free

    • Ordeith

      free*

      *costs are hidden in your bill, sucker.

      • PMB01

        Nope. My bill hasn’t changed with any of these moves.

        • Ordeith

          Which only shows you’ve been overpaying and taken for a ride for…. How long have you been a customer?

        • PMB01

          Nope. 2+ years. My $80 unlimited plan is great, as is my $15 JoD plan.

        • Ordeith

          AND You fell for jump on demand, Oh my God. This is so great.

          I’m lolling forever.

        • badassn

          And here we have a butthurt troll on the internet, attempting to proclaim dominance in a phone-carrier fansite comment section.

        • VN

          And he also has T-Mobile service so he’s complaining and still paying them lol I’m confused.

        • John

          Yeah, because no one should ever criticize a company they are in contract with! /s

      • badassn

        $46 a month(total with everything) for unlimited phone, text, and data with 5gb of tethering. Where are the costs hidden in my bill?

    • John

      No, they are not free

  • James B

    Verizon has been kinda quite lately. I think if they just matched roll over data and maybe zero rated content. We’d be off to the races.

    • SBacklin

      Yeah, if love to see VZW match music freedom and binge on. Lol

    • John Kurokawa

      I too would love it if Verizon could match Binge On, Music Freedom and eliminate overages. But they won’t. They never will. I’m willing to put up with the growing pains in T-Mobile’s network because they offer some great incentives that make sense. Plus, my experience with Verizon customer service was nothing short of horrendous. Everyone has their own experiences, but being on T-Mobile vs. Verizon is like a breath of fresh air.

      • Glenn Bolton

        Copy and Paste that for me. I live in Dallas so I get better coverage than with AT&T….in AT&T’s hometown! So far, no pain points for me on the reception.

  • Derek

    To see a bunch of adults back-flipping and knee-slapping over a free $5 pizza is pretty sad. I’d rather have them invest that money back into a superior network.
    ALSO, there is NOTHING free about it. You are a PAYING customer. In business terms, that’s called a “value added option”.

    • FILA

      Every little perk helps. Your telling me you dont like pizza? I dont know why people think T-Mobile sunk so low by doing this promotion. I guess if they offered free Tofu and pig balls, you would be happy

    • Acdc1a

      You think they’re paying for this? Come on!

      • Ordeith

        You think they aren’t? Come on!

        • Acdc1a

          Not a chance in hell. Domino’s and Wendy’s along with other sponsors are picking up the entire tab and then some.

        • Ordeith

          LOL You think this promotional activity is worth the investment by these companies? Why? What’s the ROI? What would Domino’s get out of it that would make it worth the investment?

          Either T-Mobile is paying for a portion of the “freebies” as a kickoff promotion that will quickly deflate into actual freebies of coupons and trinkets, or T-Mobile is seriously selling out their customer base to these companies. Both possibilities are pretty bad.

        • Acdc1a

          Yes. You’re not going to Wendy’s just for a Frosty and unlikely just a Medium pizza at Domino’s. The ROI possibility on a slow day of the week is HUGE. Cost to corporate on these things? $0.00. Cost for the franchisee? About $0.30 for a Frosty and $2 for a Medium pizza. Any add-on to the order is revenue positive.

        • Ordeith

          You are way overestimating the value (and return). I take it you don’t have much actual experience in sales, promotions, and costing.

        • Acdc1a

          To the contrary. I have an MBA in Marketing, own a successful local business that spends a lot of effort determining ROI, and have experience in the retail and restaurant business, more specifically the franchise restaurant business. Ever notice the disclaimer in most fast food promotions about participating locations only? Yeah … that’s because corporate can’t force a franchisee to give a discount. The vast majority do because co op advertising dollars are on the line in addition to contingency bonuses and the like. Also, corporate will show a cost/benefit analysis to each promotion. Are you aware the cost on the McDouble exceeded $1 when it was on the dollar menu? I could carry on but I won’t.

        • Ordeith

          So selling out the customer base it is.
          T-Mobile learned some bad habits from Google.

        • John

          T-Mobile is way worse than Google in my opinion

        • VN

          Wow you totally owned that troll man. I see he shows up a few times to talk trash. Funny he got real silent real quick when you brought up your MBA. Trolls get scared when they can’t reply with facts. Maybe the AWS and CA doesn’t penetrate the basement. He should probably look into a cell spot. :)

        • Acdc1a

          I don’t bust out the letters often but marketing is my thing. I can only imagine the case studies involving John Legere and T-Mobile that will be in business and marketing classes in the future. Many people forget that 4 years ago this company was written off as dead. Analysts have racheted back their expectations for new customer additions and T-Mobile keeps exceeding those expectations by keeping ahead of the curve. Am I a T-Mobile fan? Yes! Does my interest go well beyond than? You’d better believe it.

        • John

          >Funny he got real silent real quick

          Maybe he doesn’t spend every minute of every day on disqus. Hey, maybe he has a job!

          > when you brought up your MBA.

          ROFLMAO you are impressed by an MBA?? You seriously don’t know that any moron can get an MBA? I used to tutor MBAs. There is a lot of business math that those fools struggle with. Let me assure you: Any idiot can get an MBA.

          It may take time, discipline, work, and money… but it neither requires nor guarantees a deep understanding.

        • PCFan

          you get free food and okay service. wendy’s gets your location and search history + any add on order when you get your freebie. t-mobile gets money from selling your location history and your phone bill money. It’s a Win-Win-Win

        • badassn

          Promotion to millions of potential customers by simply giving away free samples? Simple really.

  • Seems like it is limited to lines that have a voice plan – tablet and hotspot lines do not appear to be eligible, nor do data-only phone lines. :-(

    • JLV90

      data only phone lines should count, it verifies via text message.

      • T-Mobile’s FAQ says: “T-Mobile Tuesdays is available to all customers on a T-Mobile branded monthly plan with voice service, including consumer and business, postpaid and prepaid plans. Accounts must be active and in good standing. Download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app to confirm eligibility.”

    Interesting goodies…. WTF ARE U PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT? IF U DONT LIKE THE UNCARRIER GOODIES DONT GET THEM! U PEOPLE COMPLAINING JUST TO COMPLAIN LOOK SILLY! They’re investing in their network and will continue to do so. They can also multi-task and try to stand out from the pack with these Uncarrier moves… But if you dont like them, dont get them! People acting like Tmobile is taking food off of their plate because they’re OFFERING you something extra… If you dont like your service, then SWITCH to somebody else! Just about everybody is offering to buy you as a customer and pay your switch fees/ETFs nowadays so it shouldn’t be that hard.

          That is a fake VN, not me. I apologize in his behalf. So sorry. :)

        • John

          lol

        • John

          I don’t think I have a ‘gruge’ against tmobile. I am still a customer, after all, and if anything I just want them to do better.

          I have sustained negative feelings against Legere, fine, but if you really look at all of the public statements he’s made over the last 2 years, and consider them critically, it becomes clear that he really is a dishonest, manipulative douchebag. So whatever.

          Also, no grudge at all against the individuals commenting here, just criticism for those that are so easily impressed and manipulated.

      • VN

        Yes this is tmonews a fan site. Go to another fan site if you don’t like the good tmo vibes he have here. This isnt about bingeon sorry.

        • John

          “Good tmo vibes” ? LOL. These aren’t “vibes”. Some of these impressionable young minds believe everything that scumbag Legere tells them.

    • AS118

      Well, T-mobile is taking money out of their budget to pay for this that could pay for stuff some people want more, like network upgrades.

      People have every right to complain, and you’re complaining about them complaining IN ALL CAPS, which makes you an even bigger whiner than they are. Besides, what’s wrong with not liking something T-mobile does and wanting them to change?

      And if people DO start leaving T-mobile because of stuff like this (and people like you) every T-mobile customer loses because T-mobile will have less money to afford to do uncarrier things. Man, what is with this childish temper tantrum.

      • badassn

        That attitude is asinine. We are literally getting free-stuff, no strings attached, and likely paid by sponsors, and you are still finding a reason to complain? Man, I’d hate to know ya irl.

        • John

          No strings attached? WTF? There are a ton of strings attached.

      • JJCommonSense

        Um no. CLEARLY their recent financial results and the actual progress that they have already made, and are still making, to their network, has shown that theyre doing something right. And even if this Uncarrier move, or any past or future Uncarrier move, doesn’t work out like they want it to, they can stop and do something else. The fact is they’re doing something, and actually still doing, what these bitter crybabies have been complaining about for years. As someone who sells every carrier except T-Mobile, it is plain to see the shifts in the industry that are a direct response to Tmobiles uncarrier moves. And Yes… I am a TMO fanboy… this is a TMO fanboy site! (DUH) If you are so unhappy with the network, why not do the logical thing and switch?? Instead of bashing a company that is doing more to try to please their customers than any of their competitors. Do something to make yourself happy… like switch to Verizon, triple your bill and your coverage map. Then you can subscribe to VZWNEWS.COM (or whatever) and join the chorus of people that sing their praises every day. I hardly doubt that people are going to leave tmobile because they can now get a free pizza or a share of the company…. “OOH THEYRE GIVING AWAY TO MUCH…. BAAADDDD LET ME GO TO WHERE I GET WHAT I PAY FOR AND NOTHING MORE!” Really?Bye Felicia.. And make sure you take your Iphone3s Or Galaxy S2, whatever device that u have that does not allow u to realize the tmobiles improved network, right along with you.

        • John

          This is a tmobile customer site, not a tmob fan idiot site.

          You can be a tmobile fan without being an idiot! But not if you alway s engage in pro-tmob apologetics.

          Sorry to all the fan idiots who come here and have people criticize their idiocy.

        • JJCommonSense

          Actually, Dumb@$$, this is an UNOFFICIAL TMOBILE BLOG.. It says so at the very top of the screen. Tmobiles CUSTOMER site is T-Mobilecom. The people at TMO may or may not even read this blog because it doesnt belong to them. So all of your Bitc4ing and complaining is just that. Im definitely a TMO fan however I dont need to apologize for them.. Where there are issues, I address my discontent. If its an article about TMo enhancing their customer relationship, and there is no evidence that you me or anyone else has been harmed by the “benefit” that they are OFFERING you, WTF is there to complain about? U wanna moan and gripe about the server issues on day one of TMO tuesdays, Im right there with you.. Its a mess. But how stupid is it to have an attitude of “TMO shouldnt be giving anything away because they need to improve their network” . U probably have Sprint anyway. U mad cause the “gentrified network” aint givin out the same goodies that those of us on that “ghetto” carrier get? Poor you. Well maybe if u didnt have your head up your @$$ one of your “ghetto” friends might be willing share a slice.

        • John

          Yay! Another big ole block of text! You are right about 2 things (and only 2).

          This is an unofficial tmob blog, I never meant to imply otherwise. Someone *else* said this was a fan site, directing everyone who wasn’t a deeply brainwashed and committed tmob lemming to go elsewhere, lol. I was simply pointing out that this is not a site exclusive to easily manipulated tmob fanboy extremists. I’m glad we agree.

          Also, you are right that the roll out is a mess.

          But no, I’m sorry to say I do not have sprint. At this time, from the info available to me, I believe tmob still delivers the best value (in my area and for my needs) despite an increasingly large set of objections I have to tmob. Sprint is tempting, I admit, and part of me wants to switch as a matter of ‘principle’ (so to speak, but not actually), but last I checked they didn’t offer a sufficiently compelling improvement in value to motivate the effort to switch.

          So, yeah, I’m eligible for these stupid little promotions. The only one worth any potential value to me at all is the TMUS stock which is at $43 at the moment, if I could flip that for a quick free $40 with a few clicks I would, but apparently I have to jump through a bunch of hoops so we’ll see.

          My attitude is *not* that T-mob shouldn’t give anything away. I don’t care if they do. My position is that Legere is a skillful manipulator and he’s got a legion of morons drinking out of the palm of his hand. This offer really isn’t that good, but tons of people think it is OMG AMAZING

        • BreakThaLawFTP

          Ether….

      • John

        Yeah, these people keep bitching and moaning about people pointing out how unimpressive this offer is. What a bunch of whiners. :)

  • DDLAR

    I don’t think it’s a good idea to feed your customers Domino’s and Wendy’s food. T-Mobile will have to be very aggressive finding new customers to replace the existing ones that are dying from heart attacks.

    • Joe

      Tmobile is not forcing food down their throats. You should worry about yourself, not other people.

      • Dracono

        Not forcing, but being an enabler.

        But regardless, yum yum yum.

    • Rirruto

      And I might be wrong but that might just be tomorrow’s freebies. Not sure if Dominos/Wendys is every Tuesday. Could be something else.

      I just googled for the calorie content and average calorie burn rate on a treadmill.

      Most people would have to spend 90 minutes on a treadmill to burn off a medium dominos pizza and a frosty.

      I think its better to just eat something healthy instead.

    Hey John
    Uncarrier is all about relieving pain points, right? How about upping the throttled bit rate from 128kbs to something actually usable like 512kbs. It’s a major pain point for some of us that occasionally go past our high speed allotment. Or would this be too much of pain point for TMO’s bottom line?

    • AA-Ron

      You’ve used up your 10 GB bucket too?

      • John

        I bought the highest data plan at the time, on that was called “unlimited”, and I go over my limit every month. Every month I get throttled, I just try to pace myself so its only a few days of throttling.

    • dontsh00tmesanta

      Or you could upgrade your data plan since its obviously not good enough for your usage….cheapass

      • Barbosa

        You know you’re right. The crappy pizza is better. What was I thinking!!

        • dontsh00tmesanta

          Cheapass mofo

          Instead of bitching of throttled speeds upgrade to a higher bucket or unlimited

        • John

          Well, with tmobiles new “free stuff for white trash” promotion they are currently failing to implement correctly, you can be certain there will be more “cheapass mofos” on tmobs networks.

        • dontsh00tmesanta

          Indeed

        • John

          ROFLMAO!

    • lomsha

      512 would be sweet.

    • AS118

      512 kbs would be nice, but I’d settle for 256, honestly.

    • John

      Tmob doesn’t throttle. I mean, they throttle, but they don’t *call* it throttling. And that’s what really matters. Here at tmobile we don’t admit that our throttling is throttling, and so we can throttle whenever we want and not get in trouble.

      We are extra empowered to do this because we have a slimy douchebag CEO who *excels* at manipulating the simple minded; thus we have a huge amount of undeserved loyalty, and legions of Legere-sucking automatons who spam pro-tmob propaganda all over the internet.

      Seriously, as a tmob customer I’d LOVE to have a higher throttle rate, but there is no way in hell they are going to give us things like this when most people are so stupid as to be so impressed by a few freebies.

      Last time I used Gogo, I got T-Mobile like coverage at Verizon prices. I understand they are working on some big new satellite launch, but even with the projected network update, they will have holes.

      GOGO is using viasat now for extra capacity. so why not just cut out the middle man

    • Rirruto

      Jetblue would never go to Gogo. Their Wifi is pretty fast (much faster than paid Gogo) and already free. They have a premium Wifi as well for a fee.

          Agree. But that is in T-Mobile’s favor. The going rate for Pisa is $6.50. That is $13.00 smackers towards the bill.

        Ooooo, low blow! No. I had Verizon. Once. A decade ago. I’m never going back. F those bitches. All the carriers are bad in their own ways, but Verizon is the worst imo.

        No, I’ve been a tmob user for over 10 years, and was a tmob *fan* for most of that time. Now I’m a user but not much a fan

        I’m still staying with tmob despite how lame, pathetic, oversold and obviously self-serving these awful “uncarrier” moves have become. At this point, though, I would switch to sprint if they offered a truly compelling value.

        • patt

          I don’t see Verizon offering anything better though. Everything is at Verizon is more expensive you get less for more. For quite few years I was with Verizon and regret it. While you might not like this many others will do. I also won’t be using that pizza coupons often but sometimes sure why not, i Like the vudu credits. It’s better to buy stuff using them then renting.

        • John

          I *completely* agree with you regarding Verizon. If I *were* to switch, I’d switch to sprint. I understand that verizon has an objectively better network, which matters to some people, but tmobs network is absolutely fine for my purposes. And the way verizon treats their customers is even worse than how tmob treats their customers.

          I just wish tmob had decent leadership. We deserve better than scumbag Legere and his antics

    Actually, I take it back, partially; the free hour of Gogo Wi-Fi on flights is actually a pretty cool perk. Plus, it won’t make you fat, unlike the more widely publicized features.

  • dexi

    How T Mobile is going to afford all of this? It’s a good marketing campaign with free pizza, etc. But in the long run it may be a disaster.

    • VN

      T-Mobile is not paying for this. The deals are with the companies.

      • Ordeith

        Your personal data isn’t worth a free pizza every week. There is a cost.
        Even failing to consider the cost of the product there’s the overhead of administration, the costs for the infrastructure to support it, and the cost of developing and maintaining an app on multiple platforms.

      • John

        So we are all cattle, for our personal information to be sold to other companies. And Legere is leading us to slaughter, while convincing us we are getting a deal

  • Joe

    There’s always stipulations. The Domino’s Pizza is carry out only. And you can only add one free one to your order so if you’re trying to use multiple codes, you have to make multiple orders.

    Second.. the amount of information they need for the free stock is scary. Basically you have to give them every detail about you including your job if you want that free share of stock.

    Third, I’ll never redeem the frosty’s. Can only do it inside Wendy’s and you have to bring your phone. Small frosty is like less than a dollar now so I’m not too worried about not redeeming it.

    Warcraft movie I won’t use either. Even though opening weekend is going to be light, because every review site says this movie sucks, I still hate opening weekend. If I could use the ticket at any time it would have been better.

    • Aaron Tillery

      God talk about complaining about everything can’t just be thankful for something that’s free that no ones forcing you to use

      • John

        God, talk about naive – acting like this is actually free. Just because they hide the cost from you doesn’t make it free. Damn.

    • Acdc1a

      You mean you can’t load up 5 free pizzas at one time? Oh No! Shame on T-Mobile!

    • Guest

      Thanks for sharing the details.

    • Josh

      You are the epitome of this entitled generation we currently have.

      I can’t add multiple free pizzas on one order, wahhh.

      I don’t like opening weekend for a free movie, wahh.

      • John

        No doubt there is a problem with this entitled generation, but he isn’t part of that problem. Scumbag Legere’s shady salesmanship is to blame here, along with tmobs failure to execute the promotion.

    • kev2684

      Of course they need all those information for you to own a stock. You’re about to own a part of a company no matter how small it is. What did you expect?

      • John

        No, actually tmob is trying to gather more information on people for marketing analytics. This whole promotion is about marketing and market research.

    • Ordeith

      So another person that would rather they use the money this is costing them to provide you with a lower bill instead.

      • John

        Yeah, doing what customers *actually want* would be great! Instead, they are making shady deals and then trying to convince us with OMG free STUFF!!!

    • John

      Thank you so much for explaining all the stipulations. As usual, scumbag Legere is trying to manipulate us, as all of the details here reveal. It would be nice if I knew all of this up front!

    • Joseph Cathey

      You’re getting stock. That takes personal info… and no more than they already have really. It’s like signing up for anything financial, it requires name, address, SSN, and in this case bank info to tie it too.

  • SJR19

    Well I will so use the Warcraft ticket, because I wanted to go see the movie , so thank you t-mobile.

  • Plow Rox

    Thank you T-Mobile!

  • Bryck

    Does anyone know if there’s an option to buy more shares of the company.

    • Yep

      Yes. If you go to Scottrade.com, etrade.com, fidelity.com, etc. They will all sell you all the T-mobile stock you could possibly want.

    • grazapin

      A stockbroker?

  • Bryck

    Forget the pizza. The movie tickets are cool. Hopefully they offer tickets for the next Independence Day movie. The free frosty is AWESOME!!!!
    And for the whiners that always complain about everything, YOU WOULDN’T BE HAPPY EVEN IF SOMEONE DROPPED A MILLION BUCKS CASH ON YOUR FRONT PORCH BECAUSE YOU’D THINK THAT YOU’RE ENTITLED TO TWO MILLIONS WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING FOR IT.

    • John

      Obviously you are straw manning the people who criticize this awful promotion. Our time is valuable, and tmob just jerked us around. Please, stop being an idiot.

      • Bryck

        Lol, you’re the idiot for answering to the comment. YOU’RE ONE OF THOSE WHO I’VE DESCRIBED IN THE COMMENT.

        • John

          Check and mate! Thank you.

  • Acdc1a

    App is down and all of my free stuff disappeared…just an FYI.

    • Marek

      i guess that qualifies as “while supplies last”

      • Acdc1a

        I already had my code and was getting my pizza. :(

    • ancho84

      Same here, I had everything earlier this morning and just opened the app again…it logged me out, I had to log back in and everything is gone :-/

      • ancho84

        Oh, it does however remember that I have already “played” the sweepstakes…

        • Jose Hernandez

          Same here on both accounts.

    • Guest

      LOL This is so good. I’m enjoying T-Mobile Tuesday already.

    • Tinger12

      When will companies realize that new stuff and FREE stuff will destroy their online infrastructure? So much for a cardboard pizza and a frozen imitation chocolate cup of sugar this Tuesday. But why worry, it’s free

  • icwhatudidthere

    Lol is this stuff broken already? It’s saying “You’ve already played” even though I haven’t. And all the codes disappeared.

    If this is how it’ll be every week, does Dominos even make breakfast pizzas?!

    • Tinger12

      Most don’t even open until past 10am. I always considered breakfast pizza to be leftover cold pizza from the night before. Ever try to eat a left over Dominos pizza the next day (cold or reheated)? Just horrible.

      • Guest

        Watch out for the Domino’s employee that’s also a Sprint user. LOL

        Yum, yum.

    • Guest

      Don’t complain. It’s FREEE. ;)

      • John

        Its not really free, tmob are just trying to manipulate us.

        More importantly, his (icwatudidthere) time wasn’t free! He wasted his time based on tmob’s promotion and has every right to complain.

  • vrm

    I’d rather they bump the 128kbps speed to 256kbps. Even if they throttle the LTE speeds to 5 mbps, I am good with it.

  • NardVa

    App is down. This promo is a laugher. Social media is killing T-mobile at the moment.

    • John

      As they should

  • TechnoRealz

    Yea app isn’t working.
    Spins & hangs.

  • Eric Harlow

    app is saying i dont have any stuff yet and the website is down…. Way to go Tmobile fail uncarrier 11.

  • franzl

    yep had my goodies and now they are gone. 1st time I am turned off by Tmobile. Not well planned. At least I got up at 6 am and got my vudu freebie.

  • Jess

    I never got to see mine, they vanished when I was finally able to get back in again lol. Oh well.

  • App not working, confusing software

  • disaster for tmobile, promotion does not work, a gimmick

  • great news!!!! Now it says “while supplies last” Tmobile is tricking us

    • jhe5j

      yep

    • John

      “tmobile is tricking us” is basically a tautology at this point. This is what Legere does. He is a slimy, dishonest, user car salesman of a person and in my opinion he is ruining tmobile while convincing us all that he is making it better.

  • Guest

    Oh my God! You people are really the ones who are ungrateful, in one moment you are saying ‘Thank you T-Mobile’ and in the next you’re downvoting the app and talking trash about T-Mobile on the web. Be patient.

    • Eric Harlow

      Be patient? I have less than 24 hours to redeem said free stuff and cant access the app or the website…. If a product isnt going to produce or work dont release it to the public.

  • Alex Pilaia

    App Not opening up at all. Just a black screen…

  • FCoulter

    The Tuesday app is a fail. So much for lunch at Wendy’s.

  • kev2684

    App server crashed and now all my free stuff got wiped. wow.

  • Ben Roberts

    the app is currently not working. thats great….

  • impasse

    this is hilarious how poorly this was executed. did they really not think hundreds of thousands of people trying to get free stuff might crash some servers? their twitter responses to angry tweets are flying out every few seconds..at this rate we won’t get anything until next tuesday!

    • Guest

      I hope freeple don’t go complaining to the stores. lol

  • NardVa

    App has been down for more than 2 hours.

    • John

      Legere is a dishonest douchebag, and its having its effect on tmob.

  • Critic4U

    Saw this>>

    T-Mobile Thank you for reaching out about this. By the way love the Nexus 6, simply an amazing device. There is a lot of demand on this and we’re aware of this and working to get this resolved. Stay excited! We have our best people on this! *JonathanM

    #tmobiletuesdayslaunchfail

  • LOL

    For fcks sake, can you just increase international roaming speed from 128 to at least 256 or more? ! Wtf!

    • John

      T-Mobile never throttles! ™

      • LOL

        Ah? It’s capped at 128kbps

        • John

          Yes, tmobile throttles the sh1t out of us! But they don’t call it throttling. Douchebag Legere keeps posting videos saying “T-Mobile doesn’t throttle”, and every time its a lie. They even forced throttling of my videos, and I had to go turn off this unwanted “binge on” crap they rolled out a while back; and once again, as always, scumbag Legere made a video insisting it wasn’t throttling.

          Worse, tmob has legions of mindless lemmings who repeat everything Legere says.

          So, yes, my previous statement was sarcasm; I suppose I ran afoul of “Poe’s Law”

    • Joseph Cathey

      Jesus, you people are never happy. Companies were charging OUTRAGEOUS rates before T-Mobile came along and offered it for free. You need full LTE? You still have to pay, but be glad your bill isn’t fucked over for just casual travel. The other issue is that many international companies use different channels than the US, so full compatibility isn’t even always possible. Sometimes 3G is just all the phone can see.

      • LOL

        I asked for 256kbps not 3g or LTE. 256 is already offered by Project Fi

  • Joseph Botelho

    Nice , I had my ticket, pizza and frosty redeemed this am and now nothing , all gone lost in the nether space

    • John

      All Legere really wants is attention. Anything to keep tmob in the news. Any kind of drama means *free marketing*.

      Watch, he’s going to spin their total failure to implement this correctly as some kind of “Wow, our customers love us SO MUCH, we coudln’t even serve their needs”. They are a goddamn networking company, they should be able to handle the traffic. (sigh)

  • John

    I just found out how big a ‘medium’ pizza at dominos really is. Its a sad little turd of a pizza. No wonder it is so cheap.

    • Joseph Cathey

      1) So you’re upset you got a free pizza you would have not had otherwise?

      2) if you have multiple lines, each line gets one. It’s kind of a pain, but just file multiple orders for pickup.

      • John

        Fortunately I didn’t go all the way in for a pizza, I looked it up online. This ‘free’ pizza would cost me time, effort, and minor annoyances. I think the sad little turd of a medium dominos pizza just isn’t worth it.

        I’m not upset, but I think I would be if I *had* gone in for the pizza, because I would have expected my effort going in to be rewarded with something so much better. I forgot how the pizza industry labels their medium and smalls because I’m always with a group and we order larges and extra larges. Medium is quite small.

  • LOVE

    Every Tuesday a new free deal seems like its too expensive for T Mobile to keep that up.
    Seriously I would rather have good coverage, I don’t need free snack food every week to
    make me happy with my cell provider, just coverage

    • Neal

      I think the idea is that other companies are footing the bill here, so it is ‘free’ to t-mo. MLB for example might get you a nosebleed seat for $20, which they give away daily in my hometown.
