T-Mobile Un-carrier 11 announcement tipped to be all about free giveaways
posted by Stephen S. / May 05, 2016, 3:29 PM
T-Mobile's “Un-Carrier” announcements over the years have brought some big news to the network's subscribers, from killing annual contracts, to reimbursing early termination fees for users jumping ship from competing carriers, to introducing free-to-stream Binge On video. Rumors have recently been circulating that it's just about time for another Un-Carrier event clues us in to what we're likely to get: a whole lot of freebies.
While full details will obviously have to wait for T-Mobile official's announcement, today's leak offers a number of likely possibilities for what those giveaway offers will include, such as a free Wendy's Frosty, Domino's pizza, and a weekly download credit from streaming provider Vudu.
Reportedly, we might only be about a month away from seeing T-Mobile confirm its plans, with the Un-Carrier 11 announcement tipped for June 6 – and all these promo deals, advertised with the hashtag #GetThanked, could go into effect as soon as June 7.
One particularly interesting #GetThanked offer could be a limited-time promotion kicking in for just two weeks after the Un-Carrier 11 event, which would give T-Mobile subscribers the option to pick up a free quarter-share of the company's stock. What better way to convince users that they matter than giving them a tiny slice of ownership in your company?
At current market prices, that quarter-share's only worth about ten bucks, but it's the thought that counts … right?

Hmm, as long as it's a well known food chain, I have no problem. Btw, when the new 600mhz spectrum auction gonna take place? If T-Mobile can grab a piece of this cake, it could significantly boost their coverage and wall penetration ability. More interested in that than this ; )

Sounds like maybe TMo is running out of ideas to improve its network, plans, blah blah blah. Is uncarrier now just becoming "sponsored" by other corporations? Product placement and promotional advertising at its finest. Can't wait to get a $10 pizza next time I buy a $700 cell phone from them. Or maybe I can....

I will never understand why companies like Tmo don't put in the time and effort to build their network instead of coming up with BS ideas like this. They will never catch up to ATT or Big Red, the CEO is a joke just like the coverage.

They are definitely doing both. I can attest to that as a T-Mo customer for years. I have significantly better coverage than I did a few years ago, and much better reception in buildings. I don't have any problems. Don't know about where you live though. Not having Pandora, Spotify, Netflix, YouTube, or Amazaon Video affect my data is a nice bonus.

Everyone made it sound like T-Mobile do not improve their network at all. Look at what this company had done in the past 3 years. Speedtest proved us that T-Mo wins in LTE speed in majority of cities. Sure, the weaker indoor penetration and "lack" of coverage comparing to AT&T and Verizon are sure the top two concerns, but this does not improve just overnight. It takes years to improve upon it. This auction that's coming up will surely improve EVEN further on its network( if T-Mo wins it of course) Something you guys need to think about to, how much are you non-Tmobile users are paying? What kind of benefits do you get besides just call text and data? How about overages? How about unlimited music/video streaming on major content providers? What about international coverages? Do you get to personally connect with your CEOs? All I can say is, T-Mobile is pushing the industry forward to a point where no other carriers had done EVER, and yet you guys are here bashing about T-Mobile is just a piece of trash? T-Mobile is the fastest growing mobile company in the country right now, and only will continue to do so. Everyone better put your eyes on them( rather you like or dislike T-Mobile)
