T-Mobile holding mysterious conference call on August 18


UPDATE: John Legere just sent out a tweet that says “I’m up to something. But what!? Guess you’ll have to wait and see!! #staytuned”. Attached is an image that looks like he’s being filmed for something. You can see the image at the bottom of this post.


In the mood for a mystery?

T-Mobile have announced that they’re holding a conference call tomorrow, August 18, but they aren’t giving any details about what will be announced. The only thing that T-Mo said about the call is that John Legere “may drop some hints” on his Twitter account, but so far he hasn’t made any explicit hints.

So what might T-Mobile have planned? It’s a bit of a mystery right now. Usually when T-Mo announces a new deal or something similar, they just drop a press release, but tomorrow they’re holding a conference call to discuss whatever they’re planning to reveal.

What do you think T-Mo will talk about tomorrow? A new deal? An Un-carrier Amped move? Something else entirely?

    Maybe they’ll actually offer then Nexus this year?

    • JayCA

      I think you’ve nailed it. I think they’re going announce a partnership with Google and have a special roll out of the new Nexus devices.

      • mfr118

        I was actually being sarcastic. Would be nice though….

        • Bryant

          Haha. Maybe for a couple of weeks only :)

  • chalk


  • NinoBr0wn

    John Legere, in typical fashion that only John can do, will reveal that he has in fact, caught ’em all.

  • pbolton70

    That an unseen delay for Samsung Note 7 and pre orders won’t have them on launch day…lol

  • Frankwhitess

    Mexico , Canada and NOW All of Europe is included!! That would be Epic !

    • Matt

      An end to international roaming and long distance fees altogether? Nice but unlikely

    • Max

      If they simply increase data roaming speed to 512kbps that would be more than great.

  • Matt

    This has to be an acquisition. Would be great to get US Cellular’s spectrum.

    • MisterSuperGod

      That would be saaweeeeet.

      • Matt

        Sure would because coverage would improve in the southeast. I was going to say that Sprint and TMo would merge but that is unlikely to pass regulators.

  • Johnny

    There going to roll out T-Mobile Friday’s, in addition to Tuesdays!

  • Trevnerdio

    US Cellular would be a wonderful acquisition. I was just up in the mountains of SW North Carolina/North Georgia, and I’ve never roamed so much on AT&T in my life. Though I did see some band 12 LTE and I had much more LTE than I expected ;) other times, though, I’m pretty sure I was connected to USC for emergency calling.

  • Wolf Ofwallstreet

    Its to announce that Comcast is going to buy T-Mobile just as the stock market opens on the East Coast

    • Aleksandr Mikhailovich

      God. I hope not

      • Goat

        Are you sure you don’t want the XFINITY Quintuple Play?


  • tranceformer978

    T-Mobile buys shares of Sprint from Softbank.

    • Rick_Diesel

      Deutsche Telekom getting bought by SoftBank

  • andchrome

    Google or Samsung is buying them.Google would make so much sense with Project Fi

  • jj201367

    Could be both or a new deal

  • Jess

    New Wideband LTE markets…. Such as Cincinnati….

    • Bryant

      and Salt Lake…

  • Adrayven

    No, $100 says is a response to ATT announcing they are doing away with overages. Like T-Mobile; once you cap out, it’s 128k.. I bet T-Mobile is going to respond to ATT’s copying of them.


  • John Masters

    Buyout / merger

    • MisterSuperGod

      Some other sites are suggesting that it has to do with Sprint.
      Guess we’ll find out soon enough…

  • bisayan
    • uncool

      Feds wouldn’t allow it when TMO was on the verge of going under, I doubt they would allow it now the the tide has turned so drastically

    • Johnny 5

      They couldn’t discuss this if they wanted to because of the 600MhZ quiet period.

  • Adrayven

    $100 says it’s a response to todays AT&T’s announcement of dropping overages and copying them. Google ATT news

    • Snn

      TMobile has no overage charges……

      • Bryant

        Right, and AT&T finally copied T-mo

    • Matt

      T-Mobile hasn’t had overages for quite some time now. A few years ….

      • thepanttherlady

        I think he means AT&T is copying T-Mobile and that they’re going to respond to it.

        • Matt

          Yah, I never thought about that ….

    • S. Ali

      Unlikely. Conference calls usually inform investors about something financial or strategic. In the past, they’ve done press releases to jab at other companies, not a call. This should be something serious. Being in the middle of the 600mhz auction, it seems unusual for it to be any merger/acquisition talk. Could something as crazy as Legere leaving, a strategic partnership with Dish and/or USCellular, or something boring like a financial disclosure.

      • jonzey231

        I’ve wanted them to get into the cable business since before the Unmarried stuff. I’ve tweeted him multiple times during the Comcast acquisition rumors saying T-Mobile just needs to buy a cable company and/or ISP and make it UnCable!

        • tmolover31

          It could happen; however, unless T-Mobile overbuilds into the territories of existing cable companies, which is super expensive, or unless the FCC requires the cable companies to unbundle and allow resellers to use their networks, they probably wouldn’t be able to disrupt that industry, since the cable companies do not compete in each other’s markets, which is why the prices are so high. The best way for T-Mobile to disrupt the industry would probably be for them to buy one the landline phone companies that offer fiber-to-the-home and/or fiber-to-the-node Internet service and TV service, like AT&T (not their wireless assets, just their landline, DSL, and U-Verse assets), Verizon (again, just their landline, DSL, and FiOS assets), and CenturyLink. Still, none of that is likely to happen.

      • Adrayven

        Na.. this isn’t your typical conf call.. He wouldn’t be tweeting it angling it toward the customers with ‘teasing’.. it would be more formal.

        Don’t get hung up on the words “Conference call”. It’s just old man speak for “Periscope’ing’…

  • kev2684

    Solid plans on just acquired 700mhz spectrum from Cavalier and Continuum 700 + Note 7 BOGO FREE when you add a line and jabs at AT&T eliminating overages 5 years after T-Mobile does

  • tony2979

    Maybe he plans to announce why he is charging people’s credit cards for the Note 7 preorder when they haven’t been shipped?

    • Bryant

      Who doesn’t charge for something before shipping it?? Seems like Business 101.

      • pseudoswede

        Amazon doesn’t.

      • jonzey231

        Agreed lol.

  • StevenM

    A Cellular One acquisition would be a nice rural coverage addition!

    • Bryant

      This would be great news!

    • Donald Baron

      Or US Cellular. They hold band 12 in many markets we do not have band 12.

      • Bradley Karas

        I’ve been saying that for over a year now…that would be a game changer

  • Deadeye37

    T-Mobile in talks to acquire AT&T (if only….)

    • Rick_Diesel

      i think it could be the reverse and they are briefing corporate and retail management on how to handle the situation. in the end who knows until tomorrow

      • Acdc1a

        That already failed once…nothing has changed.

        • Drewski

          How do you know that? Maybe T-Mobile are the ones to be buying AT&T verses AT&T trying to buy T-Mobile. Read before you speak Bro.

        • Acdc1a

          You’re an idiot Bro. A $36 billion company doesn’t buy a $256 billion company. BRO.

      • gmo8492

        AT&T isn’t willing to lose another $4 billlion, but I’m sure T-Mobile wouldn’t mind :)

  • Hurlamania

    if it was a un carrier move it would be announced, it’s more than that.
    it could be there projected passing of ATT for #2

    • Guest

      Nah. I think a merger or that Legere is leaving because he’s run out of ideas.

      Or maybe they’ll announce an ununcarrier: The end of activation fees, upgrade fees, NN violating video and data, 1GB/8GB phones, deceptive coverage map…

      • Mike

        No its unlimited data and calls for 60

      • Drewski

        Whoa what are you smoking there Bro? John Legere will be remaining with T-Mobile forever. What’s with you, with the assumptions that John Legere will be leaving and running out of ideas?? John is never running out of ideas Bro. Go sit down now.

      • Guest VN is a troll

        Trolling of epic proportions bro

      • Another Guest

        A lot of fanboys. Lol wow

    • jonzey231

      I’ve been wondering for a while when this would happen. Every quarterly earnings release I look for this lol.

  • prayingandhoping

    He’s giving us a hint on when the Note 7 will actually ship

    • Mike

      I just got my note 7 today from ups

      • Matthew DiGiacomo


        • enloquecido

          Mine shipped and arrives tomorrow. Guess UPS can’t handle shipping millions the same day.

      • prayingandhoping

        What color and when did you order?
        I ordered my blue on Aug 3rd, had my charge show up last night, got a tracking number and nothing after that.

        • Mike


        • Mike

          I got the blue one and I ordered Aug 4


    Unlimited Tethering to tablets.

  • John

    I just hope they continue the great work they are doing and get more spectrum and coverage with the same great service along with continuing pushing the un-carrier movement.

  • michael caley

    They are going to merge with Sprint.

  • Mario

    I think there going to announce Domino’s will be back on T-Mobile Tuesdays! That’s certainly an important announcement.

    • Guest

      Yup I agree! Such healthy food for all of T-Mobile’s healthy customers!

  • Mali

    Ima guess one of two things here.. Either A. A tmobile ans sprint merger is to now happen. Or B. They are going to continue the buy one get one free with samsung devices and include the now note 7

    • Acdc1a

      The Sprint merger is way too premature…it would require a new administration.

      • Interesting that an article just posted today at DigitalTrends that the “SoftBank CEO still has his sights set on a merger between Sprint and T-Mobile.”

    • Don Diller

      That’s in select markets only, and is excluding the Note 7

    • Guest

      Not possible during the quiet period due to the 600 MHz auction.

    • xgudwilx

      awesome thanks.

    • gmo8492

      I’m not sure, but I have a buddy who is an expert on T-Mobile conference calls.

      • Joe

        Best I can do is 5 dollars and I’m losing money on this deal.

  • Bryant

    T-mobile doesn’t own any towers anymore… I think they sold the rest of them off 2-3 years ago

  • JimmyHACK

    Note 7 BOGO incoming!

    • Billy

      That would put Tmobile at #1!

  • JOHN P

    Maybe he’s announcing that he’s going to start wearing even uglier outfits than the current one he usually wears

  • Qng

    Just got a call saying he is leaving T-Mobile.

    • Drewski

      Really?? He’s going to be leaving T-Mobile????

    • Drewski

      That’s a lie that you just told me about John Legere leaving T-Mobile. He is not leaving T-Mobile. I don’t know where you get your ideas from. You must be delusional.

      • Qng

        You are dumb enough to not know that it was a joke…lol

    • Joe

      Today on things that didn’t happen

  • Extending Europe unleashed permanently?

  • carlycomeback

    Maybe Carly is coming back!!!

    • Don B.

      If I remember correctly, I believe John had mention bring Carly back.

      • Stay tuned!

        Yes he did on periscope

    • Lit

      Catherine Zeta Jones or busT!

  • MIke

    Free iPhones 6s ahead of the Apple fall release of the 7.

  • Johnny

    How about everyone month they issue 1 free stock? That would be interesting.

  • BH

    Probably more shuck and jive. John’s getting a little goofy lately with new ideas. Could surprise everyone just the same.

  • jonzey231

    Either go buy some stock now so it hits when the market opens or get ready to sell yours before it drops to low. It could go either way haha.

  • JG

    Deutsche Telekom has accepted Google’s private bid for the carrier [or at least controlling interest in it] & their new name will be Fi-Mobile. All Project Fi subscribers now have access to the various UnCarrier goodies as well as unlimited data options.

  • Android_God

    John’s jogging pants are cute! I think he was shopping in the wrong section at Costco!

  • Merger with DISH to match ATT/DirecTV?

    • fflip8

      I’d hope not, because Dish isn’t doing well right now. I can see them acquiring SlingTV though, but I think that’s the only thing dish owns that isn’t losing thousands of customers a day.

  • StankyChikin

    He is joining Caitlyn Jenner and having a sex change.

    • tmolover31

      Hahahaha it would be very interesting, but unlikely. Good one!

    • Kevin Hanson

      This would make my week.

  • fflip8

    This better not be an acquisition. I can only imagine the damage an entity like Altice or Comcast would put on T-Mobile. I strongly hope it’s a US Cellular merger instead. I can see this being the next uncarrier, the second major network upgrade. Solid west coast coverage from US Cellular’s towers and spectrum, and vastly improved coverage in parts of the midwest and east coast.
    If that’s not it, I hope it has to do with roaming, like faster global roaming speeds and out of market domestic roaming, like 256 or 512kbps instead of the current 128kbps.
    Unrelated, but I could also see Google acquiring Sprint.

    • Adrayven

      naw.. its just them responding quickly to AT&T’s ‘No overages’ change to their plans that was announced this morning; that basically is copying T-Mobiles setup.. again…

      • fflip8

        Would they really need to have a conference call for something that you could just say outright without needs of discussion?

      • Spanky

        Copying? Wait, didn’t Legere pull that skywriting stunt above AT&T’s headquarters? Abolish overages, or something like that? I guess there’s just no pleasing the T-Mobile cheerleaders!

    • arandomperson7

      I’ve been thinking a t mobile dish network merger would make sense. Dish has been trying to launch a cell network for some time now and it would be a good match to combat at&t and directv

  • Sandman

    T-Mobile is going to acquire AT&T and be the nations largest GSM carrier and will now have better coverage.

  • Nick Boylan

    Just was announced that at 9am ET, Uncarrier 12.

  • Acdc1a

    Data Plans gone forever!

  • patt

    Uh-Oh! Unlimited guys don’t switch to this.

    T-Mobile ONE has you covered too with an HD add-on for $25 a month per
    line. And, T-Mobile ONE includes all the Mobile Hotspot data you want at
    2G speeds.

    The first line is $70 a month, the second is $50 a month, and additional lines are only $20 a month up to 8 lines with auto pay. And it’s just $5 more a month per line without auto pay.

    • Acdc1a

      An unlimited guy who doesn’t tether would be fine to switch to this.

      • patt

        Maybe one person. Compare that to my select choice plan: I pay 120$ for 3 lines. Unlimited data,talk,text, 5GB hotspot. No bs 25$ Binge on HD add on. I simply have binge on turned off,and per line. 5$ more per line just because someone is not having automatic payments? so 3 lines with HD add on would cost me 25$x3 +5×3 extra. Lmao wtf. That’s even more expensive then Verizon or AT&T.

        • Acdc1a

          The typical family of 4 that has ComShaft for internet at home pays $160 and doesn’t have to worry about going over their bucket.

        • patt

          If there is competition typical family of 4 won’t pay that much. I pay to Fios for 150/150 internet and TV package only 95$ and get all premium channels free til December (2 years will last.)

          Also 2G hotspot from regular 4G hotspot? that shiet is useless.

        • Acdc1a

          I was saying they would rely on their home internet for things like streaming to TV’s…things I currently do with my 10GB plan. We got rid of ComShaft…thus this plan won’t work for me.

    • Ronnie Chen

      So it means the plan has 2G Speed hotspot unlimited. But no 14Gb hotspot?

  • Panzer

    Will we be forced to switch to this new plan?

    • Acdc1a


  • Chapimex

    Unlimited data? Wow. Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint already hate T-Mobile. Now they’ll hate T-Mobile even more!

    • patt

      I suggest you read more about it. You get a 5$ discount per line with auto-pay, you get 480p streaming unless you pay 25$ for HD per month which is another BS move.

      If you have unlimited right now don’t give that up.

      • Acdc1a

        Depends on how you use your unlimited data. I would advise it for most though the 2G tethering kills it for me. My 10GB plan is what I’ll keep.

        • patt

          5$ more per line if you dont use auto pay lol.. what a joke.

        • Acdc1a

          Auto pay is effective against churn…its not the joke you make it out to be.

  • stuman19741974 .

    I think I’ll stick with my current “old” plan. We have 5 lines (mine is unlimited) and the rest of my fam gets 2.5 GB/mo. In total, it is $130/mo. As much as my kids would love unlimited, not worth the $$$…they can find WiFi most places.

  • Guest310

    70 with auto pay. Does this mean taxes and fees are included?

    • Ronnie Chen

      Good Question. But I dont think so

  • Kingsmaker

    These plans make no sense. Several years back this was the going rate for unlimited on Tmobile. 70+50 and then allowed corporate discounts at that time. About a year ago they offered 2 lines unlimited for 100 and a few months back offered even better deals (eg 2 lines 6gb for $80, and had many nice promos for 3 or 4 lines). If you took advantage of any recent promos just stay were you are at. Way too expensive now.

  • cotty

    The UN carrier seems to be getting desperate with all these new plans must not be making any money sounds like what sprint was doing a few years ago with framily and other crappy plans they must be loosing money on those unlimited full data customers who signed up in the beginning and pay only 50 dollars per line. They are going to raise rates or they are going to loose customers to big red and big blue good plans and better networks.

    • Acdc1a

      You’re rambling…and T-Mobile is profitable.

    • sjh1

      i didnt no where to post this but i want people t no that if you leave tmobile for
      another carrier they let people know i just got a letter from my insurance company
      saying we have been notified by your carrier that the following number has been
      deactivated.i left them do to lying to me about my bill.i also was a long time customer.they suck they lie,and i also had other people leave for new carriers,i am
      just a small fish in the pond but people beware of tmobile they lie they lie please

  • This is cool. Simplified is so much better, and it eliminates the whol “opt in” argument.

  • Ronnie Chen

    I prefer TMO amp the international call to 144 countries. Just 15 or 10 on the account. Please
