(Update: Legere’s in on the act) Mike Sievert teases Uncarrier 5.0, promises “big throw-down”


It seems like ages since we got the last major Uncarrier phase at CES in January this year. Three months can certainly seem like a long time in tech. But just to reassure us that phase 4.0 wasn’t the last, Mike Sievert, the company CMO teased the upcoming major changes last night.

Uncarrier 5.0 is coming very soon:

And it involves more than one “move”:

As for what that next phase is, we don’t know. We’ve received a handful of guesses and vague speculations, but not enough to bring an informed report, or write up about it. Will it involve data? Will it be another handset pricing structure change? Truth is, this time out, I don’t know. I’d still love to hear your thoughts.

What are your biggest pain points as a U.S. wireless consumer? What needs changing?

Update 1 – Not Uncarrier 5.0, but something “exciting” nonetheless:
