T-Mobile has responded to customer complaints about advertisements that were pushed to the notification screen of their Android smartphones. "During a recent software update, a message to promote T-Mobile's free VIP Zone was mistakenly sent to certain customers and appeared on the notification bar for some Android devices," said T-Mobile in a statement sent to TMoNews. "After T-Mobile was made aware of this mistake, the company stopped the notifications. T-Mobile apologizes for the inconvenience this may have caused customers."

One Could Only Imagine.

One could only imagine if AT&T or VZW thought of this scheme retracted or not? There would be 287 comments inside of hours comparing them to the anti-Christ. But I guess TMO gets a pass.
You're probably right....but nevertheless it probably really was just an honest error and nothing to get outraged over.
