T-Mobile Gearing Up for Valentine’s Day Sale, And Scheduled Blackout Period in April and May

January 19, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

This isn’t to surprising, because every year T-Mobile does a Valentine’s Day sale. Currently the Valentine’s Day Sale is still unknown, we have no idea what they might offer, but I’d suspect sales on just about every Samsung device in their portfolio. T-Mobile will probably be pushing everyone to their Value plans as well during this sale, since they are looking to get rid of their classic plans in the coming months. We’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date on this sale.

Now that T-Mobile blackout period in April and May. According to TmoNews, it looks like T-Mobile is having a blackout for a four-week period where employees won’t get vacations. Typically this hints at the release of a hugely popular device. We’ve seen AT&T and Verizon do this for every iPhone release on their particular networks. The blackout is from the last two weeks of April and the first two weeks of May. So what could T-Mobile be launching during that time?

Well there are rumors of it being the Galaxy S4, or the iPhone and iPad that is coming to T-Mobile this year. Well so far we have no details on announcements of the Galaxy S4, so it could be it, but it would have to be announced in February or March. Typically the Galaxy S line has been announced in Q2 which begins in April. As for us, we hope its the Galaxy S4, or dare I say, the HTC M7? Of course these are all rumors and should be taken with a grain of salt, but rest assured that T-Mobile is having something big going on during that time. They wouldn’t schedule a blackout if there wasn’t.

It looks like T-Mobile has quite a bit of tricks up their sleeve in 2013. Bringing LTE to 100 million POPs in the first half of 2013, and 200 million by the end of the year. They are also going to be selling Apple products beginning this year (not a big deal for us). So it’ll be interesting to see what device or devices they have coming in late April, and early May. Who’s excited to see what T-Mobile has coming? Let us know in the comments below.
