T-Mobile's Uncarrier 7.0 announcement happening September 10th

T-Mobile's Uncarrier 7.0 announcement happening September 10th
It has only been a bit over two months since T-Mobile announced stage 6 of its Uncarrier movement, which was the Music Freedom making it so streamed music on certain apps wouldn't count towards your data cap. Now, T-Mobile is getting ready to announce Uncarrier 7.0, and has set the date of that announcement for September 10th, the day after Apple's iPhone 6 event. The two announcements might not be related, it is just the time of year for big announcements. 

Oddly, this announcement won't be taking place in any of the usual spaces or meeting halls. Rather, it will be held in the T-Mobile store on the corner of Market and 3rd Street, which is only about two blocks from the Moscone Center where Apple has traditionally held its events (although not where Apple is holding this year's iPhone event). As far as what to expect from the announcement, that is all speculation. The only hint T-Mobile is giving is saying "This time it's personal." 

We have no idea what that could mean. It is possible that T-Mobile will be announcing new plans to compete with Sprint's recent changes, or perhaps even something similar to Sprint's Framily plan with personal bills for individual family plan members. Or, it could be something completely different. We'll just have to wait and see.

I bet it's something aimed at Sprint and the other carriers.

Or something to do with personal hotspot free or discounted for a limited time?

They already offer the hotspot service for free I believe, plus free data for tablets.

Not on the $50 or $60 plan if I'm mistaken.

You are mistaken. Hot spot is included in all Simple Choice plans, pre or post paid.

Go T-Mobile, they are IMO the best nationwide carrier in usa, I live in an urban area so I don't really care about coverage

If they are doing something similar to sprint Framily that seems like it would be an under the rug move since they didn't think of it first. I'm still hoping that they come out with a "subisidy" thing that all high end phones cost no more than 350$ to buy outright... I mean that'd really be a slap in a face for the other carriers but I doubt it would be practical on a business front.

That's a little too much to ask for. Lets face it - they are here to make money too.

I know...Its why I stated what I stated at the end...-_-

But subsidy raises the costs of plans not decreases them. And you do not buy the phone outright even on subisidy cause you cyou cannot unlock them till your contract is up. And good luck getting sprint to unlock it. This probably has something to do with their tablet data lines.

I wonder what carrier 100 will bring? Free phones and free service?

Simplified billing, eg, tax and fees included as in prepaid?

They should make hotspot equal to your high speed data, except the unlimited plan.

They kind of do, right now their plans let you count the same bucket as hotspot/data. Though i see where you would want seperate pools.
