T-Mobile news: 2013 Valentine's Day Sale and blackout period during April and May

T-Mobile news: 2013 Valentine's Day Sale and blackout period during April and May
Every year for Valentine's Day, T-Mobile usually has a great sale, sometimes offering all of its phones for free like it did in 2011 and 2012. There is speculation that this year the carrier will focus on its Value plan offerings for the sale, which is not really a shock since the mobile operator said earlier this year that it would focus on its Value plan in 2013. How sweet would it be if the Google Nexus 4 was included in the sale? How sweet would it be if the phone was actually in stock? The hard to find smartphone is supposed to go back on sale January 23rd on T-Mobile's web site and a limited number of phones should also find their way into T-Mobile stores as well.

Meanwhile, another rumor being spread from water cooler to water cooler has T-Mobile blacking out the last two weeks in April and the first two weeks in May. Employees of the nation's fourth largest carrier will be unable to take a vacation during the blackout period. You might recall that AT&T would often blackout vacation dates for employees during the time period when a new Apple iPhone would launch. So we could see the Apple iPhone at last come to market proudly wearing the T-Mobile insignia.  The time period dovetails with a comment made at CES by T-Mobile CEO John Legere. The executive said at the time that the Apple iPhone is closer to being 3 to 4 months away from joining the carrier's lineup, than being 9 months away.

But what if the blackout has nothing to do with Apple's iconic smartphone? Other possibilities for blacking out the dates include the possible launch of the Samsung Galaxy S IV, or the launch of T-Mobile's new Value plan only business model. Whatever the reason for keeping its employees at work during the period, it should be good for T-Mobile customers.
