Why can't T-Mobile offer GPM for free? :(
Verizon doesn't want to pay for it but would benefit them and Google in the long run. More people signing up for unlimited music + more data being used. Win win situation.

Because T-Mobile is hopefully stripping its pricing to basics. You pay for a network and get nothing more. Want streaming? Get it separately, because you have money to spare now.
Verizon and AT&T charge way more so that they pack in all kinds of extras (subsidies, bloatware). If you don't use those extras, you're getting ripped off. Not that T-Mobile doesn't have any of these things (MLB At Bat was free for a bit), but I think they're cutting down.

If you jump on a carrier for 30 free days of music streaming, you should be letting someone else handle your finances.

Google offered a free 30 day trial to everyone a few months ago. Why is it such a big deal to do it again to a few million? Chances are not too many will sign up though.
