T-Mobile's Phase 3 announcement tonight could bring free global data in 100 countries

T-Mobile's Phase 3 announcement tonight could bring free global data in 100 countries
International pop star Shakira, who displayed her talents last year on NBC's The Voice filling in for Christina Aguilera, is rumored to be helping T-Mobile tonight introduce the third phase of its UNcarrier plan in New York City. Images seen on a Shakira fansite seem to indicate that T-Mobile is going to offer free data in over 100 countries to its customers. The images also state that your T-Mobile data plan "now has a passport".

Last month, there was some speculation that Phase 3 would eliminate deposits on new accounts, but offering free data in 100 countries is much larger in scope. The original invitation, which sports the same picture of Shakira as the images from her fansite do, seems to hint that T-Mobile has something global in scope to reveal. The invite reads "Don't miss it for the world".

If this turns out to be legit, we wonder if T-Mobile's outspoken CEO John Legere will ever get invited to play golf with the CEO's of the other three major U.S. carriers. Free global data could be quite a draw for those who do a lot of international traveling, especially for business. It could also add up to be quite an expense for the carrier. We should have much more information tonight. Keep checking in!
