Phase 3 of T-Mobile's Uncarrier plan: No more new customer deposits?
A published report on Tuesday speculates that T-Mobile is going to soon announce its Uncarrier Phase 3. This is just speculation, but the buzz is that the nation's fourth largest carrier will no longer require a deposit to open a Simple Choice post-paid account. That leaves plans with "well qualified and other qualified" pricing. It isn't like T-Mobile doesn't have new found experience with no deposit accounts since its MetroPCS pre-paid subsidiary does not require a deposit to open an account.

Opening accounts without requesting a deposit just seems so T-Mobile that we can can almost hear the television ad already. Led by outspoken CEO John Legere, the mobile operator has led the way with innovations that the rest of the industry has copied, such as T-Mobile's Jump! which launched earlier this summer, and allows T-Mobile customers to upgrade to a new phone twice every 12 months.

Over the last year we have seen T-Mobile join the list of carriers that offer the Apple iPhone, purchase MetroPCS, eliminate subsidized pricing in T-Mobile's stores and on its website and start the build out of its LTE  network. That is a pretty busy year no matter how you slice it.

Next month marks my ten year anniversary with T-Mobile. I'll be celebrating by buying a shiny, new Galaxy Note 3. I've always been satisfied with T-Mobile, but I couldn't be happier about all of the changes they've made in the last year. Hopefully, Magenta sees even more success in the future. Here's to another ten years.

You have to buy your phone in full price or monthly installments at T-Mobile with cheaper plan and unlimited everything. It will payoff your phone in 1 year compared to other carriers.

This is a huge move for a lot of credit challenged folks. I can say that I am anticipating huge things from T-Mo with this move. With unlimited 4G data and now this, I wouldn't be surprised if they leap frog Sprint for that third and final spot. Sky's the limit for this company.
