T-Mobile tempts Sprint customers to switch, offers $200 in bill credit per line
Earlier this week, T-Mobile announced that it's handing out three months of unlimited LTE data for all Simple Choice postpaid subscribers. Today the carrier upped the ante on its holiday offers and unveiled a second "Un-carrier Unwrapped" promotion, one that offers $200 in bill credit for each line that customers port from Sprint or its subsidiaries.

T-Mobile says that each Sprint number that customers will switch to a Simple Choice postpaid plan can get them $200 in bill credit. No device trade-in is required, but you can stack the $200 in bill credit with T-Mobile's Carrier Freedom offer, a campaign through which the Magenta carrier offers to pay up to $650 in early termination fees with an eligible device trade-in. 

While this offer is tempting even for a single number, families or business willing to port all of their lines might be in for huge savings through T-Mobile's second "Un-carrier Unwrapped" promotion. The deal kicks off this Thursday, November 26th.

In the past couple of years, T-Mobile has adopted a very aggressive strategy when it comes to rivaling the three other major carriers in the US. As T-Mobile is now the third largest carrier in the US by subscriber count, surpassing Sprint, it appears that these aggressive measures have paid off for T-Mobile. Sprint itself has been trying to catch up with T-Mobile and has responded with some interesting campaigns of its own, but this new offer isn't likely to help Sprint in its efforts. 

T-Mobile appears to be on a roll with its holiday gifts, and with the carrier promising a new gift at least once per week, the fun is far from being over. Looking forward, T-Mobile CEO John Legere confirmed that AT&T and Verizon customers will be tempted to switch to the Magenta side through future promotions.

T-Mobile IS the "uncarrier" around our house since there is NO sign of anything resembling COVERAGE.

I am currently a Sprint customer and this is a pretty decent deal, but T-Mobiles coverage in my "home" area just wouldn't work for me. I wish that T-Mobile and Sprint instead of bashing each other would step up and start bashing the King and Queen of mobile networks and I don't mean short term "gimmicks" and push both LTE networks to have a bigger footprint.... I just took a trip to Pittsburgh the other day and did a couple speed tests with my HTC M9 on Sprint and was surely surprised with 95.53Mbps download. if both of them would get the miles and miles of 2G/3G coverage switched to LTE then the customers will come flooding in

T-Mobile has been stepping up tremendously in the past 3 years, but gaining more coverage takes a year or two to implement along with buying more spectrum. Even though the CEO of T-Mobile is one crazy outspoken person, but at least we all know that he's listening to customer's want and need. Lacking enough spectrum for certain cities are known, and T-Mo understands it.

Damn. I think I have to go back to T-mobile. They're the only company who ever gave me A plus service.

I just tested T-Mobile about a weeks now, the coverage is excellent now compared to 2 years ago it's time for me to get three more line service.

Yay T-Mobile, I think... still on the fence whether I should switch in lieu of Sprint's suddenly faster LTE+ network. Maybe I'll do a trial period with T.

No coverage in a lot...... I mean a lot of place with Tmobile. I have Sprint, and two family members that travel with me can't use their phones every where we go.....still too limited

T MO has been better for me in So California than verizon has! The fact you can call or text over wifi (compatible phone req'd) is a Godsend and basically fills in the blanks, My Verizon phone no signal you're screwed
