T-Mobile’s CEO, John Legere, stated on Monday that there would be special sales and deals for customers on each of their competitors’ networks. That was after announcing that all current customers on Simple Choice plans would get three months of Unlimited LTE data, as well as a few other deals like a free Galaxy S6 and a free Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 7 tablet. Today, it was Sprint’s turn. In which T-Mobile announced that in addition to all of the incentives that the company is currently offering, they will be giving Sprint users that switch to T-Mobile an additional $200. According to T-Mobile’s press release “T-Mobile today announced plans to give an extra $200 to long-suffering Sprint customers for every line they switch to the Un-carrier. No strings. No hassle. And, no trade-in required.” So that’s $200 for each line you bring over, so if you bring over 4 lines that is an extra $800.
That’s not all though. T-Mobile is also offering Unlimited LTE for a family of four for just $45 per line. That’s $180 for four Unlimited LTE lines, their lowest price ever offered. Switching, also means that Sprint customers would get T-Mobile’s Carrier Freedom, and up to $650 per line to cover ETF’s and device payment fees. Of course, you’ll need to trade your phone into Sprint to do so.
“I cannot think of any wireless customers in more desperate need of some holiday cheer than those Sprint customers still hanging on over there,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile.
We’re all pretty used to Legere trash talking his competitors. And over at Sprint they have seen the most of the trash talk. Sprint has had a rough few years, and are still looking to turn it around. They’ve done pretty well under Claure’s leadership, but there’s still a way to go. And T-Mobile is looking to capitalize on that and bring those customers on over to T-Mobile where they can enjoy things like Music Freedom, BingeOn, unlimited roaming in over 140 countries along with unlimited 4G LTE in Canada and Mexico. Things that Sprint aren’t really doing (they do have unlimited roaming, but only in a handful of countries).
