T-Mobile trolls Verizon prior to its earnings release by combining Netflix clips

Third quarter earnings season is here, and tomorrow morning Verizon will be the first of the four major U.S. carriers to reveal how it did last quarter. T-Mobile, partially to promote its "Netflix on Us" feature, and partially to get a dig in on Big Red, combined some clips from Netflix shows to put together a video collage that tells you just what the nation's third largest carrier thinks of the country's largest wireless operator.

Click on the video at the top of the story and you'll see scenes from Netflix originals like Fuller House, Orange Is The New Black, Mascots and more. T-Mobile's current promotion with the video streamer allows those signing up for two or more lines of T-Mobile ONE receive a free standard Netflix subscription that allows streaming over two screens at the same time. And T-Mobile will even cover the recent 10% price increase announced by Netflix.

Following Verizon's Q3 earnings report tomorrow, we could see T-Mobile disseminate the results of the Un-carrier's last quarter on October 23rd. That is one day before Sprint and AT&T are expected to release the results of its latest three-month period.

All these fools leaving to T-Mobile eventually come back to Verizon when they realize all the s**t T-Mobile promotes is a lie. The network is still s**tty, they still can’t get you decent coverage inside doors. Even out doors the reception still crap and you still drop calls. You get what you paid for people.

Canon City Colorado - I have verizon for work and Tmobile for personal. This isnt exactly a rural town, but its not a city either. Verizon blows ass anywhere within a 20 mile radius of here, and there are towers on all sides of the town. Tmobile, while not screaming fast, works everywhere. Now when I go back to my home city, about 40 miles east, on the south side Verizon blows ass inside my house, Tmobile isnt "much" better, but atleast it stays on LTE when my iPhone from work goes in and out of 3g with a tower less than 1 mile away. So Tmobile beat verizon in these two examples.... here is a third Colorado Springs Colorado - all phones provided by my employer are Verizon iPhones - inside the HQ building, Verizon blows ass, but Tmobile seems to get coverage. theres 3 examples of how your wrong. next.

There’s about 20 of you T-Mobile freaks that will flat out lie about the coverage here in PA. Let me tell you something, if T-Mobile really had the great coverage you claim they do, you wouldn’t get Netflix, Tuesday give aways, and all the other free crap they have to put out to keep customers from asking questions about the lack of service.

DerekJeter just loves to trash-talk anyone not using his expensive preferences. If it ain't IPhones, it's Verizon. . Bro, you'd do well to stick to what you prefer. I like to think that others are very free to dole out considerably less sums for relatively similar service(s).

You're an idiot. Verizon just plain doesn't work in many areas by me in South Florida. Not bad coverage, flat out no coverage. So not only would I pay more to be with Verizon, I would be paying more for less.

I live in the springs also. Although I don't have Verizon, I've been with T-Mobile now for a year and haven't had any issues. I get what everyone's saying about giving away Netflix, but I also would like to think that it's a good thing that T-Mobile is saying that their network can handle giving people Netflix and watching it in their phones. Anyway, yes Verizon is probably better hands down, but I pay $100 for four lines with my employer discount and have that extra line for free so 5 lines for $100. Verizon can take that to the bank. That deal for decent (not best) service is fine with me. Like always it's Hyundai/Mercedes type of thing. I'd rather get a major discount on service and make up the extra $ in getting nice new phones.

I switch to T-Mo from VZW. Mostly for pricing, because they offered 4 lines, for the cost of 3. And I have 5 total lines. I live in a major metro area. When I go downtown, T-Mo woks perfect. But I drive 2.7 miles to my house, and at home I have no LTE at all. I had to get a cellspot in order to get data. Always congestion? 2.7 miles difference in distance? I refuse to go back to VZW, though I always keep a line open just in case. So now I am trying AT&T. Issue? Serve is no better per se. Its consist ant, but certainly not fast or slow. Our company solely uses ATT. But we also use iPhones and reception in the office is terrible. Everyone goes outside. I don't have to go out with the Galaxy, but I do have to walk closer to the windows for better reception. Something I didn't have to do with TMo or VZW. I already know Sprint sucks and will never return to them. Then the other TMO issue is test messages that never send, or take all day. That got to be annoying. So me and the mate, started using Fb Messenger, because SMS sucks @$$. After 12 months, I will see if it improves. If not I may have to swallow my pride and move my lines all back to VZW. Another reason I left VZW, is they always ruin Samsung phones by not supporting features. The only phone I will ever use on VZW is an iPhone. But I prefer my Galaxy so that may prevent me from doing so. My next phone purchase will be one with a dual SIM and I will use a TMO ATT SIM in it as backup or on prepay. Based on past experience, VZW is the best. But their cost is just ridiculous and so is ATT costs too. There are places I go where VZW doesn't work well as well.

You're in luck bc tmo is starting to roll out their 600band, which covers every inch of the map. You'll need a new phone that works with the bands. In the next yr, tmobile will cover everywhere

With everything wireless its YMMV. I can tell you this Here in Minneapolis t-mobile woks well for data and text (in the metro) but voice coverage is horrible. If you dont make calls you probably think there network rocks. My folks switched to save a whopping $5 per month. Also I can tell you my little sister who was on the plan with my folks lives in NYC works by the park spends time all over Manhattan and Queens and lives up near Marble Hill. Her experience is T-Mobile is no where the quality she had with Verizon. She says many dropped calls and spots where her internet wont work in NYC with T-moble. She needs to talk on the phone near her windows in here apartment just to keep a call from dropping. Still my folks are happy and honestly that what matters. For me I travel five states for work nothing works better in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, The upper peninsula of Michigan, Iowa lakes area like Sioux city IA and Sioux city Nebraska than Verizon and go check out sensory or any of the other crowd source coverage maps its true. The simple fact is the reason Verizon has the most customers is because there network is the best in more areas. I am not sayeing they are flawless you will find area where Sprint T-mobile or ATT are the best but then Verizon is usually second.

Funny thing is right now, if I leave Verizon for T-Mobile, my bill would actually increase while having a significant impact on my coverage.

I'm never going back to Verizon. I get 4 times more from T-Mobile than Verizon, in data, in countries I can call free, and in perks, plus they had WiFi calling first when Verizon would just drop inside metal buildings.

I get great coverage in my little rural town with Tmo and 45-55mbps down, VZW gets great coverage to though just slightly slower speeds and higher prices. My point here is, we tried Tmo a couple years back and it really did suck, sprint was better back then. We had VZW and then ATT but now we have Tmo and surprisingly it's now the best in my town, which shows that Tmo really is improving their network and as long as they keep doing that, i'll take my free Tuesday stuff, Netflix membership, lower priced bill and stick around for a while!

I don't understand why people pay so much for Verizon when T Mobile is an option. Do I lose service here and there. Yes. Is it worth paying more for less. HELL NO!!

Been with mobile past two years, no complaints. Occasional signal outages in some areas but nothing that will make me pay much more for lets say.... Verizon?... Plus Im getting free netflix, plus some of the lines I have receive a $10 kickback every month If they don't use more than 2gb on the cycle (grandma :)

Left Verizon for T-Mobile 4 years ago and have never looked back. My bill is less than 1/2 what it used to be.

Happy T-Mobie user for the past 6 years. Had Verizon about 15 years ago in the "stone age" of wireless networks when CDMA was relevant. Verizon reminds me of Cable networks, losing subscribers fast and they can't connect the dots.

T-Mobile is trash in North Carolina. Why are they trolling Verizon on earnings when Verizon will make billions more? Morons.

Same here in the East Bay of the SF Bay Area, TMo and Sprint are the best in my area but Verizon and AT&T are pretty good too.

Funny how T-Mo is calling "The Big Two" a duopoly when they are trying to do the same thing. Only thing is they will still be third place when combining Sprint and T-Mo and they will suck just as bad.
