HTC offering T-Mo One M8 buyers a free Fetch accessory while stocks last

Over the past couple of months, T-Mobile’s been focussing a lot of attention on the Galaxy S5 and – more recently – the LG G3. Doing huge giveaways and pre-registration plugs, while the HTC One essentially just got a “here, it’s available”.

This weekend, HTC has been sending out emails to subscribers offering them a free HTC Fetch accessory if they buy a One M8 from T-Mobile. The Fetch, for those who don’t know, is a small connected device that sounds alarm when you move too far from your phone. It can also help you locate your phone if you’re forgotten where it is (presuming it’s within 15m).

“Just press the button and the sleek, compact keychain device activates your phone’s ringtone within 15 meters*. Pair it with your phone and you’ll get a warning beep if you leave it behind. If you lose both, a convenient map location feature lets you know where your HTC Fetch and phone were last together.”

Interestingly, there are no instructions within the email on how to claim your free Fetch. Heading over to the HTC One product page on also gives no clues. So, if it’s simply a case of grabbing one in store, it’d be great to hear from T-Mo retail staff to help clear that up.

    the fetch device is not carried in stores and we have not received any training on this promotion or when it will become available for sale or for free, if ever.

      absolutely right… tried for 3 hours with tmobile today..

    • Cam Bunton

      Even on HTC’s own store, they’re out of stock. No idea what the company is playing at here… Seems unorganized at best.

  • besweeet

    Not a bad addition for spending $636 on a phone… /s

  • TMoRSA

    Another RSA here with confirmation that we haven’t seen these in store, nor have we heard anything about it.

      I think, since the email came from HTC, and not T-Mobile, this is a promo it’s running separately to you guys. Odd, no one except those receiving the email seem to know anything about it.

  • epsiblivion

    what about existing owners?

    • Baldy McHairman

      what about them?

    • Singleweird

      if you’re asking if you’ll be reimbursed for your purchase, definitely not. there iswill be a promotional time frame.

  • Larry Griffin

    What about the people that already have the HTC ONE…

    • Harry Johnsin

      They get a billion dollars in monopoly money!

      Thats the thing about promo’s, you sorda have to buy the item during the set promotional dates. Do you feel entitled to any promo that the m8 will see in it’s lifetime?

    I actually would not go by this promotion. I bought the M7 where they offered the free car dock online, and i never received it. I called and spoke to numerous agents and no one had any idea of this promotion.. I never received it and just gave up on it after a few weeks of going into stores with email confirmation.

    I would much rather have HTC offer a sale on the phone itself like the one they offered for Sprint, AT&T and Verizon the other day. Skip the 0% interest and just slash $100-$200 off the retail price of the phone. Then you’ll get my interest.

    I miss TMobile’s old sales. The shell game T-Mobile now plays with shifting the up front cost to higher monthly payments on the phone isn’t impressing me.

    T-Mobile by far does most innovating of the U.S cell providers. After a decade plus on AT&T and Verizon, I’m sure glad I switched. Go T-Mobile!!!
