While the other carriers use summer travel as an excuse to gouge customers with outrageous roaming charges and/or expensive “add-on” plans, T-Mobile just launched a ton of awesome perks for travelers this season. If you are going to Europe or South America, check this out...
From July 1 through August 31, TM is unleashing unlimited high-speed data for T-Mobile customers traveling in nearly every country in Europe! That’s right, absolutely no extra charge for unlimited data and texting in the most popular destination for overseas travel. Unfortunately, users in Asia and the Middle East are not eligible for this promotion and will only get standard free 2G speeds. Customers don’t have to do anything to get this added benefit.
You probably already know TM's customers already get unlimited data in over 140 countries with Simple Global. And now, on July 1, they've even added Belize to their list of Simple Global countries. That means customers never have to worry about data overages in ALL of South and Central America.
That’s a lot of summer love. And to kick it all off, they are even about to give every wireless customer in America a taste of what it’s like to be a subscriber of the "Un Carrier"
This weekend only (Friday, June 24 through Sunday, June 26) passengers on any domestic flight equipped with Gogo service can access a free hour of Wi-Fi from their smartphones, courtesy of T-Mobile. Yep, even AT&T and Verizon customers can take advantage of a free hour of Wi-Fi on TM, so they will get to see how much better it is to travel as a T-Mobile customer!
Connect to Gogo Wi-Fi during the flight and select the free T-Mobile option for a full hour of surfing the web to your heart’s content. With more than 33,000 flights scheduled for this weekend, that’s a whole lot of passengers who get to experience in-flight travel the way Un-carrier customers do every single day.
Face it, there is nothing your current carrier can do if you want a better deal. Every carrier, including T-Mobile, will now buy out your contract and pay up to $650 per line to cover the penalty costs of moving and leaving your current carrier. If it's time to bust a move, contact Joel for more details...
