"During a recent software update, a message to promote T-Mobile’s free VIP Zone was mistakenly sent to certain customers and appeared on the notification bar for some Android devices. After T-Mobile was made aware of this mistake, the company stopped the notifications. T-Mobile apologizes for the inconvenience this may have caused customers."
Never underestimate the power of the media. On Friday afternoon, we told you that some of T-Mobile's Android toting customers were receiving ads in their notification bar
. By late Friday evening, the carrier was saying that it was all a mistake
and that it has corrected the problem. Additionally, the nation's fourth largest carrier apologized "for the inconvenience.
So we have to give kudos to T-Mobile
for the speed at which the carrier saw what was going on, figured out what caused the problem, and made the necessary correction. For all of you T-Mobile customers who were upset about having to read an advertisement on their notification bar, you shouldn't be seeing them anymore.
