T-Mobile to announce the next phase of the UnCarrier plans in 2014 at CES – “This one you aren’t gonna believe”
T-Mobile has been working really hard this year to get attention and attract as many customers as possible. To achieve the goal, the carrier introduced its UnCarrier plans which are innovative, or some may even say revolutionary ideas. The first step was removing contracts, at least in theory. In practice, unless you want to pay off your new phone at purchase, you have to bear with T-Mobile for two year anyway. That is because the value of the phone, minus down payment, is divided into 24 monthly installments.
T-Mobile UnCarrier 4.0 plans – What to expect.
The next step was announcing JUMP upgrade plan that allows users to upgrade phones every half a year. Other advantages of the UnCarrier plans include relatively low down payment, unlimited and virtually un-throttled data, eliminating nternational roaming fees without having to sign up for a new international data plan as well as the ability to upgrade whenever you want. This covers all the basic areas of interest of an average smartphone user. So is there anything else that T-Mobile can change in its offer? Apparently there is.
The carrier just confirmed that it is going to announce the next phase of the UnCarrier plans, dubbed UnCarrier 4.0, during a press conference at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas which begins January 8th. The teaser for T-Mobile’s press conference reads “This one you aren’t gonna believe” suggesting something big and unexpected is coming.
Rumor on the street has it that the carrier is going to offer to pay early termination fees for subscribers wanting to switch from another service provider to T-Mobile before their contracts expire. Allegedly, the carrier could also offer additional credit for trading in old phones, adding to a total of $350.
The news comes via anonymous source with no way of confirming whether it is even remotely legit, so take it with a grain of salt. Even if indeed it is what T-Mobile is planning to do, there are certainly many details we are not aware of, because in the form it is presented now, the deal sounds too good to be true.
