T-Mobile Announces Sale of iPhone 5 on April 12

No comments:



Consumers will have a new affordable, unrestricted and hassle-free way to buy an iPhone 5 when T-Mobile USA, Inc. begins offering the revolutionary phone on Friday, April 12.

T-Mobile announced today that qualifying customers can get an iPhone 5 for $99.99 down, plus monthly payments. T-Mobile is the only major U.S. wireless company to offer iPhone 5 with no annual service contract plus unlimited talk, text and Web on a screaming-fast nationwide 4G network. And because there are no annual contracts, customers make the decision when to upgrade their devices — not the carrier.

“This is an important day for people who love their iPhone but can’t stand the pain other carriers put them through to own one,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile USA. “We feel their pain. I’ve felt the pain. So we’re rewriting the rules of wireless to provide a radically simple, affordable iPhone 5 experience — on an extremely powerful network.”

iPhone 5 is the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever, completely redesigned to feature a stunning 4-inch Retina display, an Apple-designed A6 chip for blazing fast performance and ultrafast wireless technology1 — all while delivering even better battery life.2 iPhone 5 comes with iOS 6, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new features, including Shared Photo Streams, Facebook integration, all-new Maps app and Passbook organization, and even more Siri features and languages.

With compatibility on T-Mobile’s 4G network, iPhone 5 customers will enjoy a consistently outstanding wireless experience, seamlessly connecting to both T-Mobile’s existing nationwide 4G and growing 4G LTE networks. Today, the company launched 4G LTE service in seven major metropolitan areas, including Baltimore; Houston; Kansas City; Las Vegas; Phoenix; San Jose, Calif.; and Washington, D.C. T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network is expected to reach 100 million people by mid-year and 200 million nationwide by the end of 2013. The company’s 4G HSPA+ network reaches 225 million people in 229 metropolitan areas.

In addition to a great 4G network experience, T-Mobile offers iPhone 5 customers one of the simplest and most competitive consumer rate plans in the industry. Rather than providing a dizzying number of consumer rate plans, T-Mobile is offering iPhone 5 with just one.

T-Mobile’s new Simple Choice Plan starts with a base rate of $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and Web with 500MB of 4G data.3 Consumers can add 2GB of 4G data for $10 per month per line or get unlimited 4G data for an additional $20 per month per line. Customers can add a second phone line for $30 per month, and each additional line is just $10 per month. There are no caps and no overages.

Additional Benefits
In addition to the Simple Choice Plan’s reasonable terms and powerful nationwide network, iPhone 5 customers can take advantage of several free premium benefits from T-Mobile, including:
HD Voice - delivering nationwide crystal-clear high-definition calling and significantly reduced background noise. T-Mobile is the only U.S. carrier offering nationwide HD Voice for iPhone 5.
T-Mobile Smartphone Mobile HotSpot for on-the-go tethering Internet access. Through Simple Choice, T-Mobile offers an additional 500MB of 4G data for tethering, enabling customers to tether from their iPads, Macs and other devices.
Talk and surf at the same time — without limits. Through T-Mobile's Simple Choice Plan, customers can opt for totally unlimited 4G data on a nationwide network, something no other major U.S. wireless company offers for iPhone 5.

Pricing & Availability
iPhone 5 will be available for qualifying customers with T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan for $99.99 down and $20 per month for 24 months. Qualifying customers can get iPhone 4S through the Simple Choice Plan for $69.99 down and $20 per month for 24 months. iPhone 4 will be available for qualifying customers through the Simple Choice Plan for $14.99 down and $15 per month for 24 months. Financing is available on approval of credit online and in participating locations. iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 will be available in select markets. iPhone 5 will be available nationwide on Friday, April 12, at T-Mobile retail stores and through select dealers and national retail stores, as well as online at http://www.T-Mobile.com.

1 comment:



Edgar Rios has posted a new concept for the Apple iWatch that features a sleek design in both black and white.

Rios created both analog and digital homescreens, a music player, and Notification Center for his watch.












This is the best design I have seen to date and hope the Apple version will be similar.

T-Mobile Responds to AT&T's Attack Ad Images

No comments:



T-Mobile has released three new ads in response to an AT&T ad that attacked the quality of its network, reports TmoNews.

The ads read:
● Can You See The Beads of Sweat In This Ads?

● What Keeps AT&T Up At Night? Apparently Us.

● If AT&T Thought Our Network Wasn't Great, Why Did They Try To Buy It?

If you've seen AT&T's recent ads, someone is obviously worried. With T-Mobile turning up the heat, they apparently feel the need to take cheap shots at our network. Well, don't take AT&T's word for it, or ours for that matter. See the facts about T-Mobile's 4G network for yourself at t-mobile.com/coverage.

Senator Ron Wyden Introduces Bill to Make Cell Phone Unlocking Legal

No comments:



Senator Ron Wyden has introduced the 'Wireless Device Independence Act' a bill that if passed will make cell phone unlocking legal, reports The Hill.

The move comes just one day after the White House and the FCC came out in support of making cell phone unlocking legal in response to a petition that garnered 114,000 signatures. Since 2006, The Library of Congress had issued an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that allowed for cell phone unlocking; however, it decided not to extend that exemption past January, 2013.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy said, "I intend to work in a bipartisan, bicameral fashion to restore users’ ability to unlock their phones and provide them with the choice and freedom that we have all come to expect in the digital era."

Sen. Amy Klobuchar who chairs the Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights, said she also plans to introduce her own bill this week.

“Consumers should be free to choose the phone and service that best fits their needs and their budgets," Klobuchar said.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz also recently tweeted that he is working on cellphone unlocking legislation. "You own the phone, you should be able to unlock it," he wrote.

All consumers should be thankful to those who took the time the sign petition as it appears to have made a significant impact.

Samsung Signs Deal to Buy 3% Stake in Sharp

No comments:



Samsung has signed a deal to purchase a 3% stake in Sharp, a key supplier of screens to Apple, reports the WSJ.

The ¥10.4 billion ($110 million) being invested by Samsung will help Sharp keep its operations afloat and prove to lenders and customers that its prospects are solid.

"The investment is set to fortify the partnership between Samsung and Sharp and also lay a firm foundation for Samsung to secure a steady supply of LCD panels from diversified sources," the South Korean company said.

Sharp was forced to look to its rival for help after a larger ¥66.9 billion investment deal with Hon Hai fell through due to the company's poor performance.

Analysis of Apple's capital expenditures reveals that the company may have spent $2 billion to prevent Sharp from going under.

It's unclear how Sharp's deal with Samsung will affect their relationship with Apple moving forward.
