Un-carrier 11 gets off to a rough start
The T-Mobile Tuesdays app is having problems on its first Tuesday
T-Mobile CEO did his best Alfred E. Neuman (What, me worry?) on Twitter by disseminating a tweet that read "We're experiencing unbelievable response to the #TMobileTuesdays app! Hang in there!" All T-Mobile customers are entitled to download the app that will give them freebies each Tuesday, starting today. This week, customers receive a free small Frosty from Wendy's, a medium pie with two toppings from Domino's and a free video rental from Vudu. In addition, all T-Mobile subscribers will receive a free movie ticket to Warcraft. A trip to Las Vegas is also up for grabs.
Starting on June 21st, T-Mobile's postpaid customers will each receive one share of T-Mobile common stock (valued at $43.74), with the opportunity to earn as many as 100 free shares a year depending on how many referrals they get to sign up with the carrier.
While this is probably a minor aggravation for T-Mobile customers, we get the impression that T-Mobile sees this as a testament to its rising popularity.
