BlackBerry emails T-Mobile customers with $100 off promotion

BlackBerry emails T-Mobile customers with $100 off promotion
BlackBerry sent out emails to 'Berry owners on T-Mobile today, to inform them of the news that we passed along to you on Tuesday night. That news indicated that BlackBerry was not going to allow T-Mobile to renew its license to sell BlackBerry phones starting on April 25th when the current pact between the two expires.

Interestingly, BlackBerry included a coupon with the email that allows T-Mobile customers to take $100 off the BlackBerry Q5, BlackBerry Q10 and BlackBerry Z10 purchased directly from the Canadian manufacturer, via the ShopBlackBerry website. While each person is allowed the use of just one coupon, it does allow for $100 to be taken off the purchase of two covered phones. The coupons are good until May 31st.

Since BlackBerry mentioned in the email that it is still working with other carriers, the idea of the coupon is to get T-Mobile customers to switch carriers when they want to purchase a new 'Berry. Doesn't this sound similar to the original email promotion from T-Mobile that got John Chen pissed in the first place?
