T-Mobile news: 2013 Valentine's Day Sale and blackout period during April and May
Meanwhile, another rumor being spread from water cooler to water cooler has T-Mobile blacking out the last two weeks in April and the first two weeks in May. Employees of the nation's fourth largest carrier will be unable to take a vacation during the blackout period. You might recall that AT&T would often blackout vacation dates for employees during the time period when a new Apple iPhone would launch. So we could see the Apple iPhone at last come to market proudly wearing the T-Mobile insignia. The time period dovetails with a comment made at CES by T-Mobile CEO John Legere. The executive said at the time that the Apple iPhone is closer to being 3 to 4 months away from joining the carrier's lineup, than being 9 months away.
But what if the blackout has nothing to do with Apple's iconic smartphone? Other possibilities for blacking out the dates include the possible launch of the Samsung Galaxy S IV, or the launch of T-Mobile's new Value plan only business model. Whatever the reason for keeping its employees at work during the period, it should be good for T-Mobile customers.

Omg even t-mobile news says it's just a rumor no actual facts, at our store though we've gotten some flyers about free 4G phones, excluding the s3 and the note II

That's because there are only 4 phones at a $0 down payment after the MIB. There hasn't been any news T-Mo side about the sale. It's big and that's why it hasn't leaked yet like it normally does.

Well I just left sprint on Thursday to go back to tmo and I couldn't be happier to be back home.
Could have waited for this to pick up my note 2 but sprint was just horrible.

I agree . I left them back in the last week of September and I feel more free. Let's hope the GNote 2 will be on sale that day and that'll be perfect timing
