T-Mobile has been the fastest growing major carrier in the U.S. over the past couple of years and most industry insiders expect the trend to continue in the near future. The carrier went past Sprint last year to become the third-largest player in the wireless telecom scene in the country and the company's charismatic and outspoken CEO, Mr. John Legere, will probably rightfully claim a large chunk of the credit for its high rate of growth in the past few years. While quite a few of T-Mobile's services like 'Binge On' and 'Music Freedom' have ignited controversies, a promo the company has been running for the past few days seems to be much less contentious. As part of that promo, the 'Uncarrier' is now offering a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime smartphone for free with every Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge.
The offer is only valid for a limited time, so T-Mobile customers planning to get their hands on a brand new Samsung flagship would do well to check out this particular offer from the Uncarrier. T-Mobile says that it will ship a prepaid MasterCard worth $190 to users who choose to take advantage of this offer. To be eligible T-Mobile customers need to buy the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge on an EIP (Equipment Installment Plan) and then add a new line for the Galaxy Grand Prime, which needs to be bought either on installment or outright. The plan is open until the 21st of this month, so there's less than a week remaining now to make up your mind.
T-Mobile recently ended its '2 lines for $80' promo that it had introduced last month, but in its place, launched a new promotional family plan that offers as much as 6 GB of data per line at just $30 per line. The company had earlier announced an impressive set of numbers at its earnings call, with over 1 million net postpaid subscriber adds during the first quarter of this year. That looks good from any perspective, but next to Verizon's figure of just 64,000 net postpaid subscriber adds during the quarter, it attains even more significance. Meanwhile, the company also announced that its consolidated revenues were up by 10.6% YoY during the quarter while its service revenues were up by 13% YoY.
