T-Mobile announces Un-carrier 4.0, will reimburse ETFs for switching from AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint

We knew that T-Mobile had something exciting to announce at its CES 2014 media event and here it is. The nation's fourth largest carrier announced phase four of its Un-carrier strategy, thus making it significantly easier and cheaper for AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint customers to make the switch over to T-Mobile. 

So here's what it all breaks down to: T-Mo will reimburse a switching customer's entire early termination fee – yup, all the way up to $350 – should they choose to leave AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint and become a T-Mobile subscriber. In order to take advantage of the deal, one has to trade in an eligible device first and to sign up for a postpaid Simple Choice Plan. Then T-Mobile will give that customer instant credit of up to $300, depending on the value of the phone being traded in. The credit is then used towards the purchase of a new phone from T-Mobile. To get their ETF reimbursed, the customer will have to send their final bill from their previous carrier, showing the amount of their early termination fee. T-Mobile will then send an additional payment equal to the customer's ETF, up to $350 per line.

The offer is valid for individual and family accounts alike, and if a family of four makes the move to T-Mobile from an AT&T shared mobile plan, they are estimated to save $1880 over the course of two years, according to the carrier. Anyone who is interested can make the switch as soon as tomorrow, January 9.
