T-Mobile could be awarding up to 10,000 people $500 toward a trip to Mexico or Canada
As we told you the other day, starting this Wednesday T-Mobile subscribers with a Simple Choice plan will be covered by the new "Mobile Without Borders". That means that U.S. residents with a Simple Choice postpaid or prepaid plan who are in Canada or Mexico, will be able to make/take unlimited calls, write/receive unlimited texts and consume all of the 4G LTE data they normally receive (until throttled to a lower speed) at no extra charge. While in the U.S., these customers can make/take unlimited calls to and from Canada and Mexico, even from a landline.

As a way to promote Mobile Without Borders, T-Mobile is running a contest that also ties in with the company's sponsorship of Major League Baseball's All-Star Game. The carrier could give away as many as 10,000 vouchers worth $500 each for travel to Canada or Mexico. To enter the contest, you must send a tweet to T-Mobile USA's Twitter page (@TMobile) with the hashtags #3For1Homerun and #Sweepstakes. The tweet also needs to contain your prediction of which player participating in the game, will hit the first three-run home run of the evening.

On July 16th, a random drawing will be held among all of the entrants who correctly selected the name of the player to hit the first three-run home run of the 2015 All-Star game. The first 10,000 drawn from those entries will win the vouchers, which can be used only for travel to Canada or Mexico through online site Orbitz.com.

If no three-run dingers are hit, no prizes will be awarded. The biggest threat to unload a home run in the game, Miami Marlins' outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, is out with an injury. Still, you know that T-Mobile has a big insurance policy in place just in case $5 million in vouchers need to be awarded.
