Get a year's worth of unlimited LTE data or $10 credits by bringing a friend over to T-Mobile's network

Get a year's worth of unlimited LTE data or $10 credits by bringing a friend over to T-Mobile's network
There's nothing like the competition's antics - in this case, Sprint's new Family Share plans, which neglect old customers and take four charts to explain - to grind T-Mobile CEO John Legere's gears into making another Un-carrier move. 

This time, the magenta-clad Dark Knight of wireless wants his customers to "throw a lifeline" to disgruntled Sprint, AT&T, or Verizon customers by bringing them over to T-Mobile's network. In exchange, both clients will receive unlimited LTE data for a full year ahead, and Simple Choice subscribers who already signed up for unlimited LTE data will receive a monthly $10 credit for the next 12 months.

The offer will be up starting next Friday, August 29. "Rescuers" must enter their and their friends' number at T-Mobile's referral page within 30 days of the latter's activation. Unlimited LTE data or bill credit will start in the same month for both parties.

Of course, the deal announcement is brimming with banter from both John Legere and T-Mo's marketing chief, Mike Sievert. Read the attached press-release if you don't wanna miss it, and if you need more of Legere's pro-consumer tirades in your life, head over to the man's blog.

Leave a major metropolitan area and what good is the free data you get going to be. They are still pouting because they didn't get a break up fee because the deal didn't happen like what went down with AT&T.

Look instead of complaining about T-mobiles network. Look at the positive. I always tell people who are shopping for wireless that it all goes by needs. If you live in an american suburb that doesn't get excellent service via T-mo should get either ATT or VZW based on what works for them. If you do live in the city then great or are in an area were t-mo is available then even better. I believe over time the network will improve. Honestly for me I don't travel that much so T-mobile is perfect. On top of all that the customer service beats any carrier hands down

Hopefully I can get a friend to switch because that $10 bill credit sounds really good right now.

Why? It wouldnt make sense. They're trying to get people to switch by the masses. Corporate discount wouldn't bring the amount of subscribers they want.

I found out my company offers 10% discount for T-Mobile after they stopped doing this a few months ago. -_-

Im glad Tmobile is doing so well. We needed someome to stir up the pot. The monopolies were too strong. I remember not long ago, I was paying Verizon $180 for two lines with a two year contract. Now, It would look closer to $130-$140. I hope this guy goes out with a middle finger up in the air.

and then using too much will be "abusing" it.

You clearly didn't understand the whole conflict. Streaming Netflix all day is fine. When you abuse your internet for P2P or 24/7 live streaming services like Twitch, then you have a problem. T-Mobile doesn't throttle at all. Please understand that.

This is a good incentive, something that is actually valuable. Not free "magazines". One thing that is also interesting is that it gives us a price on unlimited data -- $10/month. That's how much it should cost on every carrier.
