T-Mobile holding Uncarrier 5.0 event in LA

Uncarrier

T-Mobile has setup another Uncarrier event for June 18 in Los Angeles. This will be their fifth such event, hence the name Uncarrier 5.0. Previously on the John Legere show, we've seen T-Mobile offer to pay your ETF from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon, Introduce their Jump! program, give everyone free international roaming and offer free LTE data for your tablet. It seems to be working for them, as they have seen actual subscriber growth and increased their revenue by almost 28-percent.

We've no idea what to expect in LA next month, but we hope Shakira is involved somehow.

Better news, TM is re-adopting BB as a retail product available for immediate delivery in-store. :)
Otherwise, the press release is a y-a-w-n.

VanAwful

Say again?!? Is TMO patching up their BlackBerry relationship!? If so, then hopefully they will bring in the Z30. I want one, cannot find one with correct radio to use TMO WiFi calling.

In jest!
TM is so anti-BB that it will be hard for them to 'save face' and come back, even if BB has 'the in product' that everyone demands.

Douken

Just do a BlackBerry protest in front of the event? Heck, I would join in, I live in LA

This is an issue that must be resolved in $$$ support by BB to TM.
That is the reason why the problem evolved. BB said they will not give the same financial means that Apple and Samsung pay.
Those displays in-store and TV ads are supported by the hardware company not the carrier.

Yeah no wifi calling...although my wifi is on all the time and I can make and receive calls no problem at my house.

If you are attempting to do a Quicksilver impersonation, he would instead say.... "ha, you didn't get first you waste of space. You loser, bawawawa. That will teach you, you loser, don't be a dumb ass"

I hope that they announce repartnering with BlackBerry and start pushing their devices, including the Z30... I'm with T-Mobile and I liked what they were doing until the whole beefs with BlackBerry.

So, Mr Romance, any insider information, is T-Mobile bringing Blackberry back into its fold?

 Posted by the Crackberry Pirate  ‎

Nope. I still push BlackBerry because they are still online through our upgrade system. When people see my Z30 they're like "that's a BlackBerry? do you guys sell BlackBerry?" I always say yes and that I can order it for them. But as far as BlackBerry and T-Mobile info....well......we saw how that played out.

It doesn't. It is about one of the main carriers though, so it gets posted to all mobile nations. Don't be too quick to get out your pitchforks.

Rob757

Why are we being informed about t-mobile? They don't even carry BlackBerry devices anymore, they didn't care for BlackBerry. I thought this forum was about BlackBerry news, products, and probably related to third party companies that some how are still connected to BlackBerry.

Being that T-Mobile is consumer centered... Blackberry wont partnering with them soon...

But for people like myself (blackberry user and T-mobile USA subscriber). I appreciate crackberry posting this stuff. I like T-Mobile due to low prices and customer service (my experience not everyones). I do hope that they start selling BlackBerry devices one day again, but until then I will continue to do as I have in the past, purchase unlocked devices and place the sim card in

Joys of no contracts :)

Yup! I of course was not happy to hear that T-Mobile severed their ties with BlackBerry but we have great rate plans and offer great value. My Z30 works better than my Q10 because of the paratek antenna.

The paratek needs to be highly promoted. I was in a mall lower level store talking with the owner and she was complaining that she could not use her phone in the store as she could not get a good signal. I pulled out my z30, and presto 5 bars! My Q10 only had 3.

Tapped and flicked from my BlackBerry Z30!

TranceRomance

In my store I'm the only one who gets 4 bars of LTE. Everyone else is 4G even though they should be getting LTE.

Second that. Glad to be back at TMO (been a year now) after a disappointing trial with Sprint. Yeah, too bad TMO and BlackBerry parted ways but as said by others I can still run my ZedTen on it. Glad that TMO stayed independent of AT&T (thank you, USDOJ!) And that TMO news is still posted on CrackBerry news feed.

Very well put--this coming from a TMobile customer happily running a Z10 on TMo's network.

This company has officially DROPPED BlackBerry. Can we please DROP Them. I'm sorry But BlackBerry users on T mobile Jump Ship. either Jump to another carrier or Jump to another Smartphone. But I think we should drop TMobile.

I was ALL for TMobile and wanted to switch I really freaking was, but guess what? They didn't support my device.
Do u prefer ur Device or an Internet provider? #ichooseBLACKBERRY10 over a Carrier any day. I could care less what TMobile is doing. This is definitely not BlackBerry related lol ... NEXT

T-Mobile didn't drop BlackBerry, it's actually the other way around. My unlocked Z10 from BlackBerry is working perfect T-Mobile as well.

Will there ever be an official 10.3 for TMobile BlackBerry Customers? I know you can always get it in the Autoloader. What I'm talking about is actually getting an update notification on the network automatically and not having to manually do it myself? How does TMobile take care of their "Grandfathered in" BlackBerry users? Like I said I think that ship has already sailed or sunk lok

If you believe that cell phone/cell phone services pricing would improve from the consumer perspective if TMobile were to "go away," you are deluded.

crackfinder

Deluded? I had T-Mobile too. There coverage was the worst! Yes they have the lowest pricing, however in retrospect it is not much lower than AT&T and Verizon in the grand schemes of things. So yes, I wish they would just go away. They suck.

Excuse me...."their coverage" I meant to say.

ubeda92

I'm sorry that your experience with TMobile was so unpleasant that you feel so negatively regarding that company.
I'm not asserting that TMobile is perfect. TMo has done or failed to do certain things that have seriously annoyed me.
That said, I stand by my position that TMo's presence and actions in the U.S. probably benefit cell phone customers regarding pricing, even if those customers use other carriers--carriers which probably are somewhat affected by TMo when setting their own prices and rate plans.

Oops, I posted too soon. Looking at the government portion of the TMO site. They are advertising "T-Mobile BlackBerry customers: Get up to $200! when you upgrade to a new Samsung smartphone."

Crap. Ok, so I want a Z30, but if the WiFi calling does not work on it then I'm looking at dumping TMO and moving to AT&T.

There's no WiFi calling for the Z30 since they never carried it.

There's no need for people to look negatively on TMO as it was BlackBerry that decided not to renew the licensing agreement with TMO. If people want to blame anyone then blame BlackBerry. As a loyal BlackBerry user, I can honestly say that it's BlackBerry that abandoned us. Promises for years and nothing. How's that PlayBook still working out for those at still have them and haven't sold them? How's that Android player and all of those apps at we were promised would be coming? How about that loyalty rewards that we were surveyed on?

Keep in mind that with all of he money you save with TMO, you can more than afford to buy an unlocked device directly from BlackBerry.

Bacon Munchers

Not exactly correct.

T-Mobile drew first blood. BlackBerry was only covering their corner; some would say pride, however, if you look at the tone of the negative advertising that TM was doing, BlackBerry would have been foolish to not retaliate.

You can say that BlackBerry poses no threat to the negative advert, but let's virtually fast forward 1-2 years from now and see if BlackBerry sales numbers don't make TM regret the silly advert.
Time will tell.

Bacon Munchers

Boooooooooo!

T-Mobile sucks.

I hope Verizon wipes them out.

Rello

Such a shame how people are such complete fanbois of BlackBerry that they can't understand that there are still BlackBerry users on Tmobile perfectly happy with their service. Not leaving Tmobile for another carrier. They easily offer what works best for ME. If it doesnt for u then don't read the article.....its really simple. Moat people will leave a switch a device before leaving a carrier for a specific device.

I look forward to what they will announce

Posted via CB10

TranceRomance

It was very tempting when I heard Verizon was getting the Z30 but T-Mobile takes the cake in value and affordable service. Plus I got a free Q10 last year from BlackBerry through T-Mobile so I ain't bitchin' plus I do like working for T-Mobile. Very flexible hours so I can still run my DJ and entertainment company on the side.

On T-Mobile with Z30, 10.2.1.2160, how do you get wifi-calling with T-Mobile?

Posted via CB10

I'm just doing it. Wi-Fi is on and I can still make and receive calls. Nothing changes on my indicator either when I'm on a call. It says I'm on wifi. Maybe it quickly changes to the network but it doesn't feel that way. I'm sure someone will post some link about or something. But until then....it works for me.

My Z10 and Q10 work great on TM, not parting with either. Hopefully Legere leaves TM and the two companies resume some kind of relationship.

At least BlackBerry offered a $100 coupon with the breakup, hence the purchase of my Q10 which I love. Now if TM would reduce the price of their remaining BlackBerrys I would purchase a second Q10.

I have the phone I want, BlackBerry Z30 STA100-5 unlocked.

My phone bill was cut in half after I made the switch to T-Mobile.

My service has been the same and sometimes better.

When I called BlackBerry customers service I was informed I would not be charged because I was with T-Mobile.

I think BlackBerry and T-Mobile relationship benefits the consumer, even if we have to purchase phones unlocked. Quality phone and service plus savings was a no brainer.

Verizon sells the Z30 and several reps and managers told me not to go with BlackBerry. My T-Mobile rep was excited to help me, never said anything negative and was considered going with the Z30 based on his limited exposure to the phone signing up unlocked Z30s.

Leave you say why?
