T-Mobile's Magenta Friday promotion extended to Tuesday, November 22nd

T-Mobile's Magenta Friday promotion extended to Tuesday, November 22nd
You woke up this morning thinking that something important had slipped your mind. And then it hit you. You forgot to take advantage of T-Mobile's Magenta Friday promotion, which expired yesterday. How are you going to explain this to the wife and kids? And just when you are about to Google the name of a divorce attorney, the most wonderful news is released. T-Mobile is extending the Magenta Friday promotion until tomorrow, November 22nd.

Now you have two extra days to take advantage of this deal, thanks to what T-Mobile calls "overwhelming demand and jam-packed stores." To refresh your memory, any new customer activating two voice lines on T-Mobile One or Simple Choice, or any existing customer with at least two voice lines on T-Mobile One or Simple Choice, can get two additional lines added for free. That is $0 for those who prefer symbols.

T-Mobile also took some time to update us on its previous deals. The bad news, thanks to heavy demand, is that the free Samsung Galaxy Tab E and LG G Pad X are no longer available. However, T-Mobile is giving away the Alcatel POP 7 LTE tablet to those customers with a T-Mobile One or Simple Choice Unlimited plan. Subscribers will be reimbursed with 24 monthly bill credits equal to the price of the slate. The only thing a customer has to eat after two-years of credits, is the sales tax.

In addition, the carrier's mobile Wi-Fi hot spot for cars, SyncUP Drive, remains free with 24 monthly bill credits on a 2GB or higher mobile data plan. Normally priced at $149.99, this device turns your car into a rolling Wi-Fi hot spot. The device also provides diagnostics for your automobile, and also tracks your family's fleet of cars. Heck, you can even set speeding alerts and get alerted when a family vehicle enters and leaves a certain area (better not delete that lawyer's phone number). T-Mobile tells us that the deal will not be put on back order if supplies run out. Perhaps we can rephrase that better. No rain checks with this deal! And supplies are said to be going fast.

T-Mobile is giving you two extra days to prove to your family that you're still on the ball. And if you really want to be greeted with hugs and kisses when you walk through the door at night, check out the carrier's holiday deals by clicking on this link.

Do you guys know where I can find a reliable coverage map? The t mobile website did away with hspa and GSM and calls it 'reliable' LTE, my ass those areas have ever seen LTE, my company uses t mobile and I put the Sim in a b 12 phone and get lucky to be on weak GSM (between houston and Austin) so I know the map is incorrect.

OpenSignal is fairly accurate. There are a few things to keep in mind. It's only based on people who have the app, so many rural areas that are covered, don't show as having coverage. I was just in the area. I went between San Antonio and Houston and then Houston to Austin and then back to San Antonio for my flight home. With a Galaxy S7 Edge I had no areas of weak signal at all...even between cities.

Well, both. I10 from San Antonio to Houston and 290 to Austin. And as a guy who isn't from Texas, may I ask why there isn't a proper highway from Houston to Austin?

Haha am not from Texas either, not even American. On that strip I think it's highway 77 LTE was very intermittent when I traveled through here over June. I hope they really kick it up a notch, I may try them next year.
