I am not sure as to why, but this is the kind of move one makes in desperation. It requires a substantial outlay of money (up to $450) for each T-Mobile customer who responds to it, and there are some 30+ million or more of them. Is this AT&T's way of trying to 'buy' T-Mobile's customers outright, since they couldn't 'buy' T-Mobile in the past due to regulations? I kind of like T-Mobile's ideas on a sort of un-carrier freedom, if you will, so is this the price for bringing an end to freedom and ingenuity at T-Mobile? I have AT&T service, and I never really thought of them before as being desperate for much of anything... I must ask the same question you did: why such an aggressive (desperate) move?
