Analysts predict success for T-Mobile throughout 2014 thanks to Uncarrier momentum

There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that T-Mobile’s Uncarrier movement is a big hit. It’s not just bringing in more customers for T-Mobile than it’s had in years, it’s also forcing other carriers to change their ways and compete.

Check out Sprint’s new offer, seem familiar?

Yesterday, it was revealed that Sprint would be offering customers a chance to earn up to $650 to switch to its Framily plan. Sound familiar? It should.

Sprint will give customers up to $300 service credit for trading in their old phone with Sprint … [read full article]

Uncarrier 4.0 working? AT&T’s latest move would suggest so

T-Mobile’s Uncarrier 4.0 plans – ETFs covered, $0 down on great phones and break-up letters written

As we heard a while back, this is T-Mobile’s next phase of Uncarrier. It’s not just a promotion that last just a few weeks. It’s here to stay. According to some surveys, 78% of customers would switch if someone paid their ETF. Legere made a joke about AT&T customers who could leave, take advantage of Uncarrier 4.0, then if you don’t like it, go back  and take advantage of AT&T’s $450 to switch offer. You’ve lost nothing. … [read full article]
