AT&T offering $450 to entice T-Mobile customers to switch
posted by Alan F. / Jan 03, 2014, 8:55 AM
Switch from T-Mobile to AT&T and the nation's second largest carrier will give you as much as $450. Some of that sum comes from a promotion card that AT&T will give you for trading in your current smartphone. The card must be used for AT&T products or services, and the actual amount you'll receive will be determined by the age, condition and model of the phone you trade in.
The remaining $200 is awarded to T-Mobile customers who jump to AT&T, sign up for AT&T Next and purchase a new device at full price or have a phone activated that they already own. AT&T Next is the plan that offers an early equipment upgrade to customers who make at least 12 monthly payments toward a new phone purchased at the full retail price.
Sounds like at least one major U.S. carrier hears footsteps behind them, and is peering over its shoulder.

I have a Note 3 w/ T-Mo and these 35mbps+ speeds with unlimited everything for $70 a month make me happy I don't have to worry about overages.

Great deal you:ve got there. Does thst include 4G or 3G...? I remember few users are on Verizon with old price plan giving unlimited 4G for $90 with no throttling. What a lucky buggers those are. Wish i had that price plan...

T-mo is doing great things, the problem is coverage even in a city like NYC where i live. Bulding penetration is not the best, i only get 2G inside my office. I am back with AT&T and service is great. I thank T-mo for making them lower their monthly service fees.

Indeed, the AWS band has trouble going through many walls. I myself experienced poor signal in a store in a mall last week. That's probably the motivation behind the spectrum swap with Verizon to get to use the 700 MHz band in some locations like AT&T, which gets more easily through walls.

I have T-mobile on one of my phones and AIO (AT&T's prepaid service) on another. When I'm outside both are great but when I go inside a building AIO gets a better signal. If T-Mobile had better building penetration I would get rid of AIO.

Shouldn't att battle Verizon and make them lower their prices. Instead att is in battle with 4th place tmo. Tmo really got to them. Funny.

Tried TMO and still if you're not in s INNER city coverage is challenging. Heck look at their own coverage maps, look at 3rd party maps. The coverage just isn't there. The HSPA+ is awesome, but again when there's coverage.

If Tmobile pays Verizon customers' ETFs, I will switch. I have 5 smartphone lines (two unlimited data) and pay around 265 a month including tax, fees and discounts... it seems pretty a lot..
