T-Mobile Expands $50 Unlimited Plan Across the U.S.
T-Mobile has extended a trial calling plan it initially tested in San Francisco to the entire U.S. Customers who've held T-Mobile contracts for 22 months or more may sign up for the $50 per month plan that provides for unlimited nationwide calling. The plan is meant to reward what T-Mobile considers to be its most loyal customers.
Work around the 22 month requirement
In other words, is it typical that T-Mobile is tough as nails on the requirements, or is there a way (possibly by asking nicely or saying you will leave to another carrier to get the plan you want) to talk your way into T-Mobile letting you into the plan, despite not being a fairly new customer?
This doesn't make sense!
The chances of someone having a line on another carrier after having T-Mobile for two years is very rare and to top it off after people that post over these threads stating that they didn't qualify for the promotion after being with T-Mobile for ever I am starting to feel like this is just marketing hype and not a true value to the customers that they have. As far as current customers are concerned making people wait for this $50 plan and then not offering it to them is going to create more churn then anything.
Someone stated "to top it off after people that post over these threads stating that they didn't qualify for the promotion after being with T-Mobile for ever I am starting to feel ...
not for new customers...
i was told what i had initially thought, that this credit is only if it's being ported into an existing acct. with the wording used in the phonescoop article, "T-Mobile is also offering a $135 credit for new customers who switch from another network operator." it misled me to believe any new cust would get that credit.
don't get me wrong, i want tmo (more so the G1) and i appreciate the fact they reward loyalty. i just wanted to point this out for others so any misunderstanding can be squashed.
Question about the 22month thing...
I've been with T-Mobile since early 2007, but I have gotten new lines and canceled the older ones just so I can get a new phone cheaper. My current line has only been in service since Nov. 2008. Do I still qualify for the 22 months of contract in order for me to get the plan on my current line, and if I do will that extend my contract for another 2 years??? Thx in advance for the info given.
Am i serious? No, but i have a bad feeling in my gut that tells me you are serious with your post.
Word from inside TMO, no pay raises this year.
You would think with the economic down turn those who thought it necessary to change carriers would flock to TMO. But I think Boost Mobile's $50 everything plan gave those people a reason to pause.
$50 talk only
2 lines are only $89.99
I'm joking, but I'm really happy with the plan. I think it will pay off really well, and should see a huge improvement in their sales.
