Holiday Offers from T-Mobile include free tablet deal
T-Mobile has rolled out a couple of deals for the upcoming holiday season. Starting this Friday, T-Mobile subscribers with a qualifying data plan can receive a 7-inch Alcatel OneTouch Pop 7 Android tablet for free. Well, actually you are responsible for the sales tax. Then on Saturday, the deal opens up to new T-Mobile subscribers who sign up for a new data plan. If you walk away from T-Mobile before 24 months has gone by, you will owe the carrier $168 for the tablet.

The Alcatel OneTouch Pop 7 features a 7-inch screen with resolution of 1024 x 600, and is powered by an MT8312 CPU from MediaTek. The dual-core 1.3GHz processor powers the slate, while the Mali-400 handles graphics. The back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 2MP and .3MP, respectively. The tablet is equipped with a 3220mAh battery, and Android 4.2 is pre-installed.

Today, T-Mobile announced its second holiday deal. For $5 a month, T-Mobile subscribers in the states can have unlimited calling to landlines in more than 70 countries. The plan covers up to ten lines. Or, you can pay $10 a month and make unlimited calls to a mobile phone in up to 30 countries, and have 1000 minutes to use on calls to mobile phones in Mexico. And you also get the unlimited calling to landlines in more than 70 countries. This plan is also available on up to ten lines.

The price comparison table sucks and is not apples to apples. But no one cares about T-Mobile post paid service since the majority of their activations are prepaid.

Wow awesome price comparison T-mo. 4 GB for four lines 1 GB/line compared to the competition's 10 and 20 GB prices?

You get unlimited data, but only 4 GB is LTE, after that it is lower speeds

Thanks for stating the obvious but you missed the point. You comparison shop with the notion that the amount of data you purchase will be adequate so you wont have to go over that limit..or in T-mo's case get throttled. With that said for 4 lines $160 for Sprint 20GB 4 lines (no contract..Tmo's rule) $180 for T-Mo's 4x 5GB $190 for 30 GB 4 lines on AT&T (no annual contract..T-mo's rule) $310!!! VZW 20GB 4 lines (no getting around that $40 per line access)
