T-Mobile Un-leashes iPad Air Nov. 1
Starting at $0 Down - with Free Data for Life
iPad customers to enjoy a more mobile, connected life with free data every month on its nationwide 4G LTE network for as long they own their device
Entire iPad line-up at T-Mobile starts at incredible introductory price of $0 down
Revolutionary Simple Choice plan enables iPad customers to enjoy unlimited data worldwide - at no extra charge
BELLEVUE, Wash. - Oct. 23, 2013 - T-Mobile US, Inc. (NYSE: TMUS), America's new No. 1 choice in wireless, today announced its latest Un-carrier move - an incredible offer to help iPad customers enjoy an even more mobile, connected life.
T-Mobile will offer iPad Air and iPad mini, both with Wi-Fi + Cellular, starting Nov. 1 and iPad mini with Retina display with Wi-Fi + Cellular later in November. When T-Mobile's iPad line-up hits online and participating retail stores, the company will offer the revolutionary tablets starting at $0 down for qualified customers. And every T-Mobile iPad user will receive 200 MB of free 4G LTE data every month for as long as they own their iPad, even if they aren't yet a T-Mobile customer.
"When you buy a product as amazing as iPad, you should be able to connect when and where you want, simply and affordably," said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. "By offering free data for life with incredible upfront pricing, T-Mobile is un-leashing customers to fully enjoy iPad as it was meant to be enjoyed - mobile and connected."
Customers wanting more data can choose from a range of simple, affordable and flexible options - with no annual service contracts, no data overages and a blazing-fast nationwide 4G LTE network. T-Mobile offers daily, weekly and monthly options for adding 4G LTE data. For T-Mobile voice customers, 'always-on' iPad plans start at just $10 a month for unlimited data including 500 MB of 4G LTE data each month. Customers can add even more 4G LTE data in 2 GB increments for just $10 more per month. For customers who would rather have the flexibility of on-demand data, T-Mobile offers daily and weekly passes. Daily passes include unlimited data with 500 MB of 4G LTE data starting at just $5. The weekly passes include unlimited data with 1 GB of 4G LTE data for $10. No caps. No overages. Just simple value.
Less than two weeks ago, T-Mobile again upended the wireless industry by expanding the home data coverage for Simple Choice customers to include more than 100 countries, at no extra charge. Postpaid customers who add a monthly Simple Choice iPad plan automatically get unlimited data in more than 100 Simple Global countries worldwide, at no extra charge.
iPad Air features a stunning 9.7-inch Retina display in a new thinner and lighter design. Precision-engineered to weigh just one pound, iPad Air is 20 percent thinner and 28 percent lighter than the fourth generation iPad, and with a narrower bezel the borders of iPad Air are dramatically thinner-making content even more immersive. iPad mini with Retina display brings all the pixels from the 9.7-inch iPad to its 7.9-inch screen, delivering razor sharp text and detail in the same amazingly thin and light design. The new iPads feature the powerful and power-efficient Apple-designed A7 chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture, ultrafast wireless with faster built-in Wi-Fi and expanded LTE cellular connectivity, and the newly-designed iOS 7 featuring hundreds of great new features.
T-Mobile will offer iPad Air starting at an introductory price of $0 down with 24 equal monthly payments of $26.25* for the 16 GB model; iPad mini with Retina display starting at an introductory price of $0 down with 24 equal monthly payments of $22.08* for the 16 GB model; and iPad mini starting at an introductory price of $0 down with 24 equal monthly payments of $17.91* for the 16 GB model (plus taxes & fees). T-Mobile will also offer a program enabling customers to make their new iPad even more affordable by applying the trade-in value of an eligible tablet, even if that old tablet is Wi-Fi only.

If only they had good coverage where I work.

welcome to why they have the best plans...b/c nothing else works right unless you live in a few select areas.
8. PapaSmurf (Posts: 6615; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Nope. Everywhere I've traveled to with T-Mo has constantly given be solid service with full bars of 4G about 95% of the places I've been to.

Maybe these people complaining should try T-Mobile for free with this 200MB of data and find out for themselves how much better T-Mobile coverage has gotten in the last year.
13. 9thWonderful (Posts: 230; Member since: 24 Jan 2013)
better doesn't necessarily mean good coverage...it just means it sucks a little less than before. t-mobile is horrible around here but ppl tolerate it for the cheap plans & unlimited data.
14. NexusPhan (Posts: 320; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
That sucks. I enjoy much faster data speeds than I did with Verizon where I am. Never had a coverage problem either. T-Mobile definitely has a heavy focus on the east coast. Hopefully they'll get better in your area too.

likewise here too full 4g and lte service and crystal clear calls.. LG G2

You must not go many places. Here in sacramento if you travel outside the city then there is no voice covereage and you are on EDGE.

I went from Michigan to Georgia on a road trip over the summer and has full bars in almost all areas. T-Mobile is good around the whole east coast, but maybe not so much over in the west. Hope it gets better over there too.

that sucks for u i live in los angeles and gone from LA to san fransisco which is an 8 hour drive and tmobile had service all the way even on the way to vegas and arizona tmobile had hspa service 90 percent of the time. I travel alot and so far tmobile has been ok.

If there's anyone that I believe with signal strengths on carriers, it would be you.

Every single time I tried to make tmobile my primary carrier - their coverage sucked big time. Out of town, out of network. You get what you paid for - damn it. I'm stuck with both ATT & Tmobile for now.

looks like im getting an iPad. 200 mb free data, and when im done with that, i will just use my 2.5 gb of free tethering from my lumia 920. couldn't be happier i went to tmobile.
4. downphoenix (Posts: 2231; Member since: 19 Jun 2010)
Not bad. I like the whole 200mb free data thing, that is nice. However, Spritn does over 2gb for 20$ and their one up program allows you to do the monthly purchase on the tablet with no money down. So unless you just wanna do the 200mb free, T-mo's isnt exactly any better.
5. NexusPhan (Posts: 320; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
Actually. It's a lot better. Sprint is $35 a month for 3GB. (I'm not sure where you got your numbers from) T-Mobile is now $20 for 2.5GB. And has tablets for $0 down. Not to mention the whole GSM unlocked advantage that T-Mobile has.
6. downphoenix (Posts: 2231; Member since: 19 Jun 2010)
Actually its $15 for 2gb, not 20. You can view the offer on sprint.com. And one up does 0$ down too. T-mo does have the GSM advantage of course, not knocking it, just not amazed by it.
9. NexusPhan (Posts: 320; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
That's a limited time plan that must be new. Good call on your part. Not sure when they added it. That's not a bad deal at all. Too bad I'll never use CDMA again.
10. iDroidx650 (Posts: 72; Member since: 26 May 2010)
Let me guess. tmobile will charge $10-$20 for a new sim if you bring your own device. I really hate when carriers charge for sim cards.
11. NexusPhan (Posts: 320; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
$9.99 and that includes the activation fee. They have $0.99 sim sales every other month tho. Just use the code OCTSIM.
23. theminolaboy (Posts: 124; Member since: 18 May 2013)
I don't know why American Carriers are charging for SIM cards when SIM cards here in the Philippines just cost 11¢ to 23¢..

I recently switched to T-Mobile. I used to be with AT&T. I can't say that it's "better" than AT&T as far as coverage, of course, but considering how much money I saved, it's a no-brainer. I went from paying $175 for a family with 3 phones, with only 1 line having an unlimited grandfathered data plan, to paying $110/month plan with all 3 phones having unlimited talk, text, and web.

I would really LOVE to do this ... being in a rural area though ... I'm on AT&T ... others are on T-Mobile ... we are dead in the water with no signal ... while my wife is on Verizon and she is streaming videos from YouTube.
25. The_Innovation (Posts: 531; Member since: 18 Jul 2012)
Just can't have the perfect balance, can we? Verizon's service is really good, but just costs way too much. Sounds like you guys don't have much of a choice living in a rural area.

If they had the Lumia 2520, I would add.a tablet line to my account, especially since if I use the 200MB, I have free tethering/hotspot on my line.
