    July 9, not 8.

  • Tmoguy89

    July 9th *

  • DStudio

    Technically it’s “the 9th (day) of July,” or July 9.

    • NapoPeb

      What us wrong with 9 July?

  • DStudio

    What’s this ET stuff? John must still be in New York. 6 AM PT is awfully early for an announcement!

  • Pbs

    Adding Apple Music ..

    • DStudio

      It has to be greater than that. He already said it is coming. But if it arrives already that would be nice.

  • Pbs

    Some Amped service for Grandfather Plans…

    • gmo8492

      They raised our hotspot limit, but that never got an official announcement.

  • Bilal A

    I know I’ve said some of these before on another post but my guesses are, data stash for all customers, faster international data roaming speeds, more countries added to the free data/text roaming list, free 30 min (or 15 min) in flight gogo wifi, more streaming services including Apple Music added to Music Freedom, and lastly more devices added to the Test Drive program (Doubt it, not exciting). I could be wrong on all theses since John had stated the next amping is going to be BIG … Not sure if the mentioned above are.

    • Arnold Shoon

      Free GOGO would be awesome

  • Marc Klein

    AMPED: Everyone’s bills get lowered plus news about new bandwidth spectrum, the usual profit margins up, possible new rate plans, clearer explanation of the On demand Program and yes, some Apple News.

  • archerian

    If its Mike with JL it will be good for consumers. If it was Braxton on the other hand it would have been some cost saving retention gimmick.

  • Elier Ruiz

    Maybe they announce they cover more area or as much than the big two. Also update the coverage map on site.

    • Andrew Singleton

      the coverage map is real-time to my knowledge?

      • Elier Ruiz

        Ah ok

  • Tmobile Service for your Pets

    Maybe Tmobile Service truly for your pets…the dogs barks three times and it dials your phone number! LOL, LOL, LOL

  • xtasys

    Like Music Freedom they will announce Freedom Stream in which they will introduce Periscope the video streaming platform that is owned by twitter and @johnlegere has been using the last few days to make his announcement.

    • Bilal A

      Wow that’s interesting, would be really cool if that happens. I wonder if tmobile’s network is strong enough to allow freedom of streaming video to all of its customers.

  • Clippers FANactic

    What’s next? Gonna raise the prices of the rest of their phones? I’m so upset they raised the price of the G Stylo from regular price of $289 to $329 SMFH I was gonna get it but now I’m having second thoughts…. $40 is a big deal, pisse’s me off…

  • Jay J. Blanco

    What could they do next?

  • JBLmobileG1

    I have a question. Anyone know if Music Freedom applys to the 5gb match your phone tablet plans as well? It would be nice to still be able to stream my music comfortably over my tablet without any issues of pausing etc. Would be Awesome if they had some type of Video Freedom that would let you use unlimited Netflix, Youtube, etc. as well like Music Freedom does with some music. I have a feeling the next Amped may even involve the MLB in some way. Maybe ALL the games streamed for free instead of a limited amount of selected ones. I guess we shall see tomorrow.

    • matt


      any iPad with any paid data plan ( like 20 for 1 gb ) gets music freedom

      as long as you pay something, you get music freedom on an iPad

      any free data ( like 200 mb a month ) will be burned up before music freedom coverage kicks in

      if the 5 gb your getting is totally free, then it might not include music freedom, so check with tmo

      remember apple music is not covered at the moment but iTunes radio is covered
      downloading music or playing from the cloud like iTunes match is not covered

      the way i figure it. as long as you have an iPad and an actual t-mobile sim card and some kind of data plan you get music freedom. if you have a sim card thats from tmobile and it has a different companies name on it, then you probably don’t get music freedom

      the only thing you have to watch out for is prepaid iPads. pay by the month iPads (prepaid iPads).. they don’t get data stash, if you want data stash on an iPad you have to get a post paid plan.. but everyone gets music freedom

      • JBLmobileG1

        I don’t have the ipad but the LG G Pad F 8.0 that Tmobile offered for free during Father’s Day, so long as you pay for the data… which for me is 5GB for $10 a month. I would assume music freedom works for this as well though?

        • matt

          I’m pretty sure you get music freedom as well

          with a phone technically you need some kind of simple choice plan and i heard grandfathered old plans don’t have music freedom, but as far as tablets go, just about every tablet plan has music freedom
          as long as its a paid plan . if the data is totally free and you do not pay at all , thats the only time i know where music freedom is not included.

        • Andrew Singleton

          that is correct, JBL.

  • JBLmobileG1

    Another crazy idea involving the MLB. How about free entry to any baseball game of your choice across the nation…. minus the world series? Just download the MLB app on your Tmobile device…. Register your number…. and the app will generate a one time barcode that can be used towards any MLB game this year of your choice just by showing them your phone. That could definitely be something major IMO.

  • gmo8492

    I think we need to see an update about customer support, since a couple of months ago T-Mobile was in the process of unifying both customer support and T-Mobile reps data systems. Plus any other improvements are welcomed, besides all the uncarrier moves.

    • Clifton K. Morris

      T-Mobile has been discussing that since the 2003 timeframe.

      Basically, having retail stores and indirect dealers take care of customer issues in-person, has been a proverbial “Golden Ticket”. However, it was tried for a while until customers started showing up at the stores, demanding that promises be fufilled in-person.

      Buried in stacks of “internal investigations” were a few stories of customers “hearing” that customer service reps promised a free phone. When the customer showed up, they demanded the “free phone” they thought they heard (it wasn’t on the customer service tape recording) they got angry, agitated. There were even a few situations where customers jumped across the countertops, punched employees, and were arrested for assault. Even though T-Mobile declined to press charges, the county sheriff did.

      Later, this same customer found the home phone number of then-CEO, Robert Dotson and started calling him in the middle of the night.

      You have to give props to customers whom assault retail employees, and are then able to find the home phone number of an executive… of a Telecommunications company.. LOL! That was an awesome case to read.

  • Joey

    Would really love Music Freedom for all customers. :)

  • Nick

    Has anybody else noticed that My T-Mobile is down?

    • Tmobile Service Down

      Yes, I thought it was only my account and escalated my concern to tech support…

  • chris

    Lower prices on the $60-70 unlimited data for the grandfather plans/ no sale tax. Since we been with the company for so long.

  • Mark

    Free FaceTime or Skype calls

  • Richard

    Maybe the deal with dish network is finally about to happen.

  • theseanteam

    No taxes / fees?

  • randypower

    On a Southwest flight in June, in-flight Wi-Fi had free t-mobile text messaging (via Wi-Fi calling). Permanently enabling this would be a nice perk.

    • Jeffrey Wang

      Is the Wi-Fi always free on Southwest? If so, that’s better than AA, which has official Gogo inflight texting that just… doesn’t really work.

      • jonzey231

        No it isn’t. Used Southwest in March and I could connect to the network without logging in for data access (which cost $10) but even though I didn’t pay it, I was somehow still able to use Google Voice and Hangouts messaging. WiFi calling/texting may have worked but I was still on my Nexus 4 back then so wasn’t able to try it.

        • randypower

          Right, on Southwest when you connect to the Wi-Fi access point, there are several services you can access for free — like some TV shows that probably stream from copies they keep onboard the plane. You can also see a live map of your flight path and plane location overlaid. On this particular flight in June, t-mobile texting via Wi-Fi calling was specifically advertised as a free service. I used my phone quite a lot to text because our flight from Dallas to San Antonio was diverted back to Dallas when we were close to San Antonio due to a lightning storm. Very convenient, and it worked great.

          This would be cheap to operate (texting isn’t much data and they already have the infrastructure).

    • Andrew Singleton

      im confused, in-flight texting is permanent for simple choice…

      • randypower

        Andrew, this was news to me. Thank you for the info.

        I usually fly Southwest, and that’s not on the list of airlines at https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-14943

        … but it’s good to know for the other airlines. Maybe Southwest is coming too.

  • matt

    they leaked it out already.. a half an hour early.

    T-Mobile [NYSE: TMUS] has unveiled the latest in its Un-carrier Amped announcements—and this one’s going to make history. The company today announced a massive expansion of its first industry-rocking Un-carrier™ move, Simple Choice™, extending coverage and calling across the U.S., Mexico & Canada for all Simple Choice customers at no extra charge. Called ‘Mobile without Borders,’ this first-of-its-kind move delivers calling to both land lines and mobile phones − as well as 4G LTE data straight from your plan − across all three countries at no additional cost. The epic upgrade makes Simple Choice the first and only wireless plan to span an entire continent.

    • Andrew Singleton

      wrong. customers must migrate to this new plan (simple choice north america) or add the int’l account soc for $10. if no action is taken, this portion of t-mobile does NOT APPLY to existing accounts
