T-Mobile may announce an "Upgrade Club" and more LTE rollouts tomorrow
We know that T-Mobile is planning a press event tomorrow, and so far the information that we have has led us to believe that the event will focus on Phase 2 of T-Mobile's UNcarrier marketing plan, as well as the likely announcements of the Nokia Lumia 925 and Sony Xperia Z. But, new leaks are making it look like the carrier may have more announcements on the way.
TMoNews has gotten its hands on a leaked survey that T-Mobile has been conducting that looks like it is planning to create a sort of "Upgrade Club" which will let users pay a monthly fee to be able to trade-in their phone for a new one on a faster time-table. T-Mobile has been running ads recently taking shots at AT&T's long upgrade terms (although the 24-month commitment is standard for other carriers), and T-Mobile CEO John Legere had talked about the possibility of a plan like this back in March. At the time, Legere had said that the details were being worked out, but that the general idea would be a plan where users could pay a monthly fee and upgrade to a new device as much as twice a year, although other comments from T-Mo execs have said you might be able to upgrade as much as you want.
The rumor is that tomorrow's announcement will also include a major announcement of LTE rollouts, because T-Mobile has been falling a bit behind in that regards. We'll bring you the news tomorrow, so stay tuned!
