At the risk of ruining our agreement record, I must disagree. Lol. While TMO's credential standing for adding new subs appears "promising", I fear the clientele it is attracting with these new promotions, is exactly the type that VZW and AT&T could care less about.

T-Mobile has a history of courting sub prime consumers. But the "uncarrier" strategy is also surely pulling away prime consumers from the other three big operators. The recent quarterly numbers bear that out. However, the longer term issue may be retaining those subs.

The "uncarrier" perks sound great to most wireless consumers, and they will attract people for whom the T-Mobile native and roaming coverage limitations are unsuitable. The stay at T-Mobile for those people may be short lived before they return to one of the other big three. It certainly will be interesting to watch as time goes on.
