All I had to do was give my membership number to TMobile. Ever heard of grandfathered plans? You say that there is no activation fee, but people now have to pay for SIM cards in stores. I just posted a rant because I thought I would lose that discount my mom works for a school. Untrue, I as many others stated had to sign a contract specifically to get the discount.

Tmobile, may you expect the same because that extra savings each month made that little difference. So in essence I am paying for those that go higher. In addition, the advent of Heterogeneous LTE networks HetNets — a mix of macro base stations with strategically located small base stations and Wi-Fi offload hotspots — is driving significantly higher bandwidth per user while enabling operators to better control CapEx and reduce OpEx. Keep in mind ATT and Verizon have entrenched themselves into the corporate arena perfectly this way, steering the employees into getting home plans from them. I have always paid my bill on time for the most part. They got all those subscribers to join and many of them bought a phone through T-Mobile and are still paying it off.

While still having the worst network coverage by far? This seems like a very ill-conceived move. And their coverage is quite good. Now is NOT the time to be raising prices.

Why would I consider TMobile again? If they, or even Verizon did this, I guarantee without a doubt that would do it. Users are trapped with those expensive phones they bought with zero down and now owe hundreds of dollars on.

Theres no free lunch. Thanks a lot guys. Never trusted you with device or technical advice, but little did I know you were worse than just unknowledgable.

Jumping ship to sprint 24 percent. And here is why. I used the discount to factor in if t-mobile would be cheaper. After being a loyal customer since I may end up looking for other options.

Good thing I still have jump because I may end up jumping to a chappy phone from my Note 3 so I can afford the payments and pay it off faster. I have an idea! Sound like a good deal? Still uses the Tmobile network however.

Plus I am offered a bigger discount. As for a contract of 2 years, I will be fine with that. Hell, I was with Tmobile for almost Also with having to finance a phone through jump for 24 months you are still in away in a contract as far as I an concerned.

You prepaid customers are always the ones barking louder about discounts and prices over ppl that have pot paid plans. Why not just buy a Moto or Nexus phone? Why would you get a phone from T-mo?

Enjoy being lowest priority traffic all the time. When your call to the hospital to check on a dying family member drops? Family mobile customers are lower priority than t-mobile but certainly not the lowest.

T-Mobile is the least congested network so capacity issues are rarely an issue anyway. Those last two or three months I experienced a much higher dropped call ratio in my area and data was sometimes interrupted.

Do u have stock in T-Mobile or something? People should make their own decisions on what works best for them. Everyone has different needs, priorities and budgets. Do you use tmo or family mobile or some other provider?

Each post you say a different thing. With my Family Mobile discount it is actually less though, that is, if I were to go to Family Mobile… which is looking more and more tempting. Straight talk is 2.

That would be even better!! Let us choose if we want the discount or international texting and data roaming.. But not better for them. With 2 yr contract I actually paid less per month with sprint its just there 4g is really bad in NJ barely mbps.

They keep changing stuff up I am going prepaid. Do people buy their phones from t-mobile? So now i have an unlocked world phone that a carrier paid my ETF. These ideas was not thought out what makes a person have to stay with tmobile after there etf is paid off.

Legere going to shake up the industry, ya right. His talk is worse than his bite. Interestingly, many of his latest moves have been very carrier like. People here keep thinking hes some charitable guy trying to do the right thing for them.

Hes a CEO of a public company who needs to make a profit. The moves originally were to get headlines and get customers. That was working, but they also lost money so need to do thinks to change that.

Many people made the jump but now are stuck with phone payments. Its not about Changing the industry as that does nothing for T-mobile. Everything theyve done can be copied and coverage is important.

I notice Ive been seeing a ton of VZ commercials so they seem to be getting more aggressive tight now too.. It would be nice to have all carriers working on the same technology and have all phones able to work.

That way, you could own tour phone and switch whenever you wanted. In the model, tmobile needs customers more than they need to squeeze out extra revenue. This loses the shine, the maverick that was tmobile.

Makes them just the slightly sometimes cheaper provider with worst coverage. Back to same old slug for tmobile. Even if they did it for a very limited time, but grandfathered those that did, yep it would make Tmobile Bleed.

Well of course if they brought unlimited back people would switch, because they have better coverage. But then you know what would happen? Great coverage, Fast speeds, cheap prices, and unlimited data.

This is why you choose your carrier wisely and one that fits your needs. Go to a truck stop and see if any of them have T-mobile for service. First thing is, I do have two phones on the EIP.

I get HD Voice which makes a world of difference. The opportunity to upgrade every 6 months with Jump is very cool. I knew about coverage issues but was comfortable with them, because i live in a well covered area, and my travel to less covered areas is very infrequent.

For me its paying the phone off with almost 24 months to go. Anyone else feel like they are in a hidden contract? You are signing a contract with them when you finance the phone.

I knew it all along, but I figured I liked the service and was saving there anyways, so why not? Its a phone contract, but the end result for the customer is the same.

I DO get more for my money though. The issue is that a lot of people factor these things into their budget, and to get something pulled out from under them is not good for anybody.

The fact that I WAS on a grandfathered plan, and can no longer get back on it! Next dumb Tmobile move: Rape us for every last penny! I never had family mobile. I have always paid my bill on time for the most part.

Please, spend some time on another real you know, with their own towers network and tell me about BS. Go with Verizon and their upgrade fees, written out grandfathering, and horrid phone selection.

That already passed when Tmobile said no to selling to them. But after all the customers they are about to lose after this…. I am sure Soft banks CEO is overjoyed about not buying them.

Why are you so upset? T-Mobile is still waaay cheaper then the duopoly. We are not entitled to a discount. Tricked you though, right? So why did you reply with the negative connotation that Verizon does their own EIP but then defend T-mobile doing the same thing.

Lol okay let me explain to you what I meant. Verizon splits the phone payment into monthly installments which I have no problem with TMO actually started that. Who are you kidding? I had Verizon for 4 years before I went to Tmobile in No issues with their services but wanted to save on my bill considering they charged for roaming at the time.

I would need more than 2gb… I will have to consider Sprint, and while their network is a mess, if I stay with them I could end up reaping the benefits in the long run. After all, they were bought out by Softbank, so I doubt they will just sit on a pile of crap for all the money that was spent.

Your only options are pretty much sprint and TMO because you need unlimited. I actually think sprint will pick themselves up in a year or two and surprise all of us, especially if the FCC limits the amount of Mhz spectrum the duopoly can buy.

I think if Verizon offered customers Unlimited data for a limited time, and grandfathered the ones who signed up for it, I would go back to them… no questions asked. Give then take, give then take, not really liking it anymore.

Sure they give you a little more but you end up getting suckered into spending a little more too. The deals always seemed to get better but also I seemed to spend a little more too.

Example, my grandfathered Tmobile plan came close to what I pay now except I get more for my money. Now it seems like I will be getting less. I would switch too, but reality is Verizon would never do that.

It makes way more money off of overage fees that people rack up then it would on an unlimited plan and it would make their network overload like it did last year in NY and LA.

Coverage will be greatly improved, if they keep their promises I hope they do. They also promised to have all Edge 2G areas upgraded to LTE by the end of next year so that makes me have faith that coverage will improve.

Though in my area coverage is very good, when I drive to LA or Santa Barbara my phone drops to 2G for a while on highways, but that will be fixed hopefully by the end of the year!

With a discount, its basically the same. So we can finally stop using their price as an excuse for the crap network and demand something better. Quit with the ignorant comments unless you start learning the actual facts.

We just switched to T-mo because of the price. There is no advantage without the discount. Quite simply, I hope a unicorn impales T-mo and then performs unnatural acts upon them using a bowling ball.

Thus is why I stayed with Starbucks as a side job for over 5 years! His post a lone should be the reason why Tmobile needs to rethink this. This guy actually took a job just so he could save.

You know I know how blogs can changed a company s plan somewhat. Victoria secret and the kimono lingerie line being removed because it was deemed racist or sexist.

If cam writes a blog complaining about it and they, t mobile sees it they might change their mind. Or go to Twitter bombard John L. Twitter account complaining about it and how much you guys hate it and would leave.

It will make a difference. The hard core gamers changed the way Microsoft thought, but the damage was already done. I know because I work in retail. Tmobile needs to rethink this plan before it goes vital and does some serious damage.

Basically confirms that the revenue gained from this move will be passed on to all all customers. In other words, my additional cost will subsidize the Uncarrier strategy. Tell him to keep the international roaming then.

Same with the international texts too. What, they give us the texting to tell the people who are calling us from overseas and mysteriously raise our phone bill to fu k off?

Does this apply to the AAA discount? This sucks for all those who were counting on that discount, though and also is a sign that TMo is apparently throwing in the towel on corporate sales. You know what I love about all this?

Those who think a discount is anything more than an indicator that they are being overcharged anyway. Now, to some, I get that the value may not be there, but I find it difficult to believe.

Most of the people average 2. This is my 2 cents to the discussion. Legere was building a brand as the maverick, out to break up the industry. This ruins the image that he was creating. The very reason so many people were switching to TMobile.

Now they are again just another carrier with sometimes slightly cheaper prices and horrendous coverage. Seems like Legere has given up, thrown in the towel. I personally agree existing customers should be grandfathered.

The stream of people coming into Tmobile are attracted to it for a little more than just price. Is this the downside of no contracts? My saying, sometimes you must spend money to make money.

If this means continuing to give the customers their corporate discounts, then so be it. They can find other ways to expand. Ever heard of bank loans? You know… The ones your competitors tried to buy you with Tmobile?

If the money is spent wisely on the upgrades they will see the benefits in the long run. Your right if money is spent wisely. When I have seen people not even have to buy a tmobile phone, keep there phone unlock it and trade in some cheap phone and tmobile paying them to free another carrier.

How is that expanding the network and bring subscribers. Because it forces tmobiles competitors to play the same game. This hurts their chances. Will compliment well with the a block that they already have.

Now finance a phone, and watch the bill shoot through the roof. Makes the contract with a discount on the phone and your corporate discount every month seem like a better deal.

Which could have been bought for almost nothing using the money saved with a Corporate Discount. To make it comparable to a contact customers are free to make a higher down payment to reduce the monthly device payment.

Combined with a simple choice plan still much cheaper than a contract. People need to read the article. Many people are commenting about losing discounts they have had for years.

If they had read the article they would know that they are not losing the discounts if they got them before February 3 of this year. This news is about as bad for the wireless industry as for when the government took away unemployment for the people who were laid off.

Im on the freelancers discount, even with these changes I am staying. Overall, I am very happy with the service quality and I plan on traveling quite a bit the next couple years and so I want the international roaming.

No delays no BS. I expect to have a network that is top of the line like all the others considering I will be paying close to the same. BS to use Legeres vernacular.

If they wanted to simplify they would have discounted everyone, not raise prices. Every college student gets student discounts. Not anymore with T-mobile. Plus, they could be working part time with a corporation Target, McDonalds, etc.

Being on a budget sucks. Thank you Cam for bringing it to our attention. I have an idea…. Tmobile removes all the taxes and fees so my phone is TRULY like a no contract phone, and they can have my corporate discount.

After all, with prepaid their is no hidden fees. You can buy a card and not even get taxed for it. It would be a win win. Yea but that would make sense. All I know is after this go into affect I give tmobile a yr, With all these price increase and changes they should have enough money I shouldnt be seeing EDGE or Deadspots.

I also paid the ETF to switch to the new plans when they came out. The shine is starting to wear off of Tmobile. Still cheaper on Tmo. No, as an existing customer losing my discount, Tmo is still a better deal.

Already have phones on Tmo, not worth switching to pay more and go through the hassle. I get great service with Tmo. T-Mobile changes rate plans and ditches contacts. They offer easy financing for handsets.

In this case, we are not grandfathered into corporate discounts. Might as well switch to att now!!! So, last March, T-mobile put me into a 24 month contract because they added the corporate discount to my account.

If they cancel the discount, I think my contract extension should also be canceled, correct? Oh and did I mention no overage fees? And if you add more lines with TMO, the savings are unreal.

Well hey if you have the money to buy your own phone out right, go for it. And if you only need two lines. You forgot to put overage fees. The plans are unlimited talk and text with a lump of shared data for a single fee.

Because of the step change in line charges depending on the shared data amount, it can make a big difference when comparing prices vs T-Mobile. T-Mobile tends to look better with smaller data amounts.

Usually only the minutes. You will not receive a discount on the data the majority of your bill. Before you start quoting discounts, I would try to get the facts straight, then compare Apples to Apples.

I figured that in. No one even charges for minutes any more. Bad Facts on your part. I had read on forums that the discount applies to the data charge and not add ons.

The discount applies to the data, not the line access fees for the newer shared plans. You can read, right? Honestly, when we have our speedtest competition my TMO note 3 comes in dead last!

Only makes sense for the big time data hogs to linger with Tmo. And even they should look at Metro or Straight Talk. Neither are viable options, even though both are tmobile subs, as far as I know the unlimited of those subs are only capped to 5gbs then slowed down to unusable speeds.

Even then might as well stay under t-mobile because its the same price. That is the stated policy, but ask anyone that actually has Tmobile Straight Talk and they will tell you that they never get throttled.

I just called and switched from postpaid to prepaid. I was getting my discount through my second job at Walmart. My first job does not offer a discount through Tmobile. I hope everyone affected here can have a work around.

This site has been very helpful in giving us heads ups in times of major changes. I get what Legere is saying, discounts as a policy are kind of crappy, better to just offer cheaper plans to everyone.

This is an anti-uncarrier move that will only result in a mass exodus of customers. You can buy used on eBay for less. Nothing dramatic happening with phones any more, older phone is fine.

Why do people always want to get something for free. You want more towers and better service where do the money suppose to come from. T-Mobile offers lower plans, free international text and roaming.

Yeah you might not need the features everyday but when you do its free. Some people need to man up they offer no contracts so if its cheaper somewhere else you need to be Att or Verizon porting out instead of whining on here.

Their customer service is dead last and their network is dead last. T-mobile increasing bills on existing customers will lose them customers. Why do they get something for free.

Most customers would rather have a smaller bill. People on the 1GB and 3GB plans are paying the same amout that they always have. Only new customers getting the unlimited plan, old customers upgrading to the unlimited plan, and people affected by this removal of the discount.

They removed the corporate discounts to subsidize other features, such as paying off ETFs for new customers and the added international features. Unfortunately, due to regulatory issues and a lack of public support, the shock and awe approach has not yielded a buyer for Tmobile.

Now Legere has an unexpected long ground war before him, one that he cannot win unless he takes back in one way or other the very things that made his stupidly titled Uncarrier strategy work.

Truth is, the inertia of the American wireless industry has won, and the Uncarrier strategy will soon show itself to be the flimflammery it always has been.

Some of those comments now have different names on them such as the parent to this comment, so it seems like there were different people posting those comments.

Softbank is the first buyer that presented itself publicly for wanting to buy the company. That does not mean others are not watching the company with interest. Dish or some other entity could always step in.

We need 4 maybe even 5 nationwide carriers to keep at least an appearance of a competitive environment. Sadly, TMobile is no better. The goal of any business is to charge as much as the market will bear, in order to be as profitable for shareholders as possible.

Start a charity providing cell service at cost if you disagree. Personally, I see this as moving closer to transparent pricing, prepaid-style. The price advertised is the price you pay.

The postpaid industry is not there yet, but any time confusion or obfuscation enter the pricing equation, consumers lose. The timing could have been better. They should have eliminated corporate discounts when they rolled out uncarrier 1.

Made clear pricing part of the plan. Maybe uncarrier 5 or whatever will be along those lines. If the top two all of a sudden decide to bring back unlimited then T Mobile will be on its knees for sure.

However, lets be honest, I have unlimited and no matter how hard I try and max out data on or around 3 gig per month. So in essence I am paying for those that go higher.

I hazzard a guess that most TMO users on unlimited keep it for the warm and fuzzy inside. If you work at a local school district your discount still applies. Just cleared that up with Tmobile.

I just posted a rant because I thought I would lose that discount my mom works for a school. I get the discount through Los Angele County, local government,. Maybe T-mobile is looking to become less revolutionary so the government will allow Sprint to buy them.

I share a plan with my mom and we get a discount because she works at a school. Would you be able to elaborate as to why it is not true. I see you post this but do not explain why. So as long as the retail or care rep set up the discount properly, it should show GSA and they should be keeping their discount.

If this was about corporations, he should have kept T-Mobile advantage alive for students and the organizations that keep them for alumni. That would be on the data portion only. Anyone have a number directly to this department, id like to see if i still qualify and if it is set up properly in the system….

The money has to come from somewhere. Seems things are a changing now that there are stockholders involved. It may be a while but it will happen. We know he will never do that.

Why no big press tour about these great changes??? I have been trying to decide whether to go to straight talk or not. This will confirm that decision. I have been with T-mobile for 12 years and this will finish it for me.

You wish the site would quit blowing smoke and state facts? Well do so yourself. The speeds are craaaaaap. Yes I know I can leave but do you think TMO is in a position to be losing customers but especially customers like me?

This is to illustrate the following: What do you think will be better for its shareholders? People here — clueless mostly — mock Sprint and in its current state it should be mocked. I think the person down below was right: The problem is TMO is just too far behind in spectrum position.

Sprint, except within km of Canada and Mexico, had voice on mhz and lte on mhz. I read that sprint mhz voice signal has been seen miles away from the originating cell tower. And obviously mhz lte is a game changer.

So now only TMO has no deployed sub ghz spectrum. My opinion is used to educate others and not for my own benefit. I talked of how it affects other people and not myself if you were able to read or took the time to.

I doubt you did. They should fire you and give me a tax break! I see where you are coming from on the discounts being all over the place with AAA and friends etc… I think there are people who deserve it and it will hurt them.

Your guess on pricing is wildly inaccurate. But it all stays with Apple. Some phones not usually tier one phones are even sold for a slight loss. It will be Interesting to see what will Happen.

If you read up on this forum, http: Pretty confident this move will backfire, maybe not immediately, but it will be short – term. Perhaps T-Mobile should not make dumb business decisions like this.

So glad I was able to trade in a few blackberrys bc that paid off a few phones EIP. Now that was a stupid promotion, dumbest in the telecom space in years.

Drop by and let us know what your speedtest results are. So fuuuuiiudge you TMO. Sprint framily here I come with my 3 lines and with my sisters 3 TMO lines. In Detroit, I get Mbps on iPhone 4s but in anaheim, with bars, my downloads have been: I was driving on freeway so basically outside.

I go from 3 bars of 4g to zero back up to 4bars. THIS oh so improved network is why we have to pay more? I can excuse the loss of 4g and even 2g in buildings but the above is inexcusable.

Whenever I call tech support, they ask: Did you upgrade to latest software? Do you have latest carrier profile? Did you restore recently? If the REAL reason is: Btw, that is the real reason; someone from advanced tech support told me.

After traveling to Myrtle Beach, Sc and realizing how unusable 2g is, I was very disappointed. ATT does not have the same thing as jump and its not worth my time to explain why to you.

WiFi calling is usually pointless, Verizon is adding global texting as well, paying off the phone is the same as a contract but just implemented differently and can ultimately cost you more money if you leave early, Uncarrier is just a slogan and is meaningless without value behind it, and the spectrum purchase still leaves them with LARGE gaps in coverage compared to other carriers.

Thank goodness I got wind of this before my 30 days was up. EDGE is a complete joke because you pay for a phone twice only to avoid a contract. Uncarrier refers to 4 specific actions t-mobile has taken to improve customer experience no contracts, jump, etf reimbursement and simple global.

WiFi calling is typically pointless because most homes, as you pointed out, are covered by at least 2G. How exactly do you pay for a phone on Edge twice? Verizon Wireless gives Edge customers a discount on service, as long as they are using the Edge program.

You can upgrade your phone when you want to, not when the other carriers say you can and the list goes on. In my honest opinion… Everyone who has a job and a phone line has to have a corporate discount?

That sounds way off to me. No company opens up shop to give their money away. Point being, find what works for you with whatever company you desire and go for it.

None of the wireless companies are any good. A corporate discount is scammy when nearly everyone qualifies for one. And be happy about it. Same deal with the offers everyone gives when you call to quit.

Really bad idea without a comparable discount program in place like a tiered customer loyalty discount to encourage customers to stay with T-Mobile in lieu of contracts.

All of these companies just want your money at the end of the day anyway. Large corporations go with carriers that offer discounts like these as a means of giving them hundreds or thousands of lines.

Not a real friendly move. As it stands T-Mobile already has a small B2B base and lack the online tools, self service options and expedited shipping options that other carriers provide.

Discontinuing a service for new customers is one thing. Taking it completely away from corporations who were offered this in return for their MSA acceptance is another. Business that have service under the business name have never been eligible for the advantage discount, they get a built in discounts on the line cost once they go over 6 lines so that will still be in place…..

Instead of spending so much money on ETF payments maybe you could consider taking care of the customers you have! This is a really bad move. So, the device is a positive exchange.

We have a good secondary market. We have a lot of ways to use it. And then, if you look at our industry, the biggest money spent is in acquisition cost to get a customer, and the huge amount of money that people spend in advertising and other mechanisms to incent you to come.

So the payback on this is single digit months. Part of why its so stupid to piss off all your existing customers. Hard to get customers, easy to lose them. T-Mo is betting that the reason customers go there is to save a few bucks a month.

For most customers, they will still save a few bucks a month. Almost nobody chooses T-Mo for the coverage. My bet is there will be a little bit of negative press until whatever the next big uncarrier announcement it, then this will blow over.

Lol read your receipt if you got your phones from a T-Mobile store its 14 days to return or exchange. Read your customer agreement. Sorry to hear they are discontinuing the corporate discounts but good to know they are keeping govt discounts.

This is turning into the Disadvantage Plan. That is unless you are a. Every week a new announcement and many of those here waited to see what was next. Went and saw his replies which kind of fixed it up for me.

He does a good job of explaining why. What are you talking about? Check it before you post. All I had to do was give my membership number to TMobile. Well, I lucked out.

Called yesterday however, and got switched with all migration fees waived. It is all because of T-Mobile. Less competition means screwed customers. No one cares why, we just care that the price difference is now marginal.

It will be nice to get better more reliable indoor service. My biggest trade off was giving up indoor service in more than a few location but that was okay bc at least at home with wifi I could always use a wifi app I have an iPhone so no T-Mobile wifi app was not a big deal considering the yearly savings on T-Mobile.

I became a big advocate for T-Mobile except when they did away with my soft cap of 10GB to 5GB and then forcing me to a simple choice plan. The unintended consequence was that the switch to simple choice forced me to use less than gig of data.

So plan did you choose on ATT when you switched? I use a lot of data usually about 10 to 15 GB a month, the other lines not so much. If youve worked for wireless carrier, youll know that this discount is manipulated by weak salesman as a tool to close a sale throught all carriers.

Yes this sucks for a lot of customers if you are that unhappy call and speak to customer loyalty. Or email executiveresponse Tmobile dot com. Been there, done that.

You get the canned responses you read from leaked documents in the article. Lets see if you are gutsy enough to follow this move ;. That position is wholly indefensible. You did bring up a good point though.

It will happen I promise. All it takes is one weak link in the chain to break the connection. Honestly, for all the hassle, misinformation by T-Mo care, and total lack of effort to keep me as a customer, it would take A LOT for me to ever leave again.

It would take even more for me to leave for T-Mobile again. Suffered through weak spots in coverage and data saturation in congested areas because of the price difference: Tired of going to conventions and community events and not able to get a connection that is saturated or weak and unreliable.

Spotty coverage and 2g speeds beyond city limits and missing out some handsets is one thing. But losing this discount is another. Time to research other alternatives but i have a feeling tmobile is still a good value, but paying more for tje same thing is not right.

Paying more for the same thing happens all the time. I never understood why people expect whatever cell plan they were on a decade ago to still be honored by their provider for the same price until forever.

Do you still make the same wage you made a decade ago? The cost for carriers have gone down in the last decade, so your argument is not apples to apples. What costs would those be? I suppose if a carrier was providing the same network technology today that it provided a decade ago, then you could do it more cheaply.

LTE networks operate at a significantly higher spectral efficiency than most advanced 3G infrastructures, reducing the cost per bit and delivering significantly more bandwidth per user.

In addition, the advent of Heterogeneous LTE networks HetNets — a mix of macro base stations with strategically located small base stations and Wi-Fi offload hotspots — is driving significantly higher bandwidth per user while enabling operators to better control CapEx and reduce OpEx.

Consumer prices have already come down a lot, too. And even that mid-range smartphone is worlds ahead of whatever candy bar you had in The problem is nobody wants a minute talk plan anymore.

That is cheaper than the past. You are comparing apples and oranges. I agree paying more for the same thing happens all the time…in certain markets. I do not think its hard to understand why some people expect their cell plan to be honored over time since that particular market has historically done just that.

Ever heard of grandfathered plans? Cell phone companies are known to practice that, not mcdonalds or gasoline stations. But they are different markets, in my opinion. If tmobile wants to increase profits, revenue, employee salaries, executive bonuses, i think they should continue to try to increase customers with uncarrier type moves, not something like this.

Besides, they did increase customers. Over 4 million in and that was before they started paying ETFs for switchers. I agree, apparently uncarrier promotions alone are not enough, therefore i think they are testing customer loyalty by doing away with these discounts, consequently raising some bills.

But to each their own. Compared to the other carriers, T-Mobile has very few corporate accounts. Maybe turning this into a benefit for corporate sales is the plan. Because often people had to do a 2 year contract extension to get that discount and some people are still under that extension, now with no discount.

What in my previous posts gave you the impression i am not bothered or upset by losing these discounts? If you are under contract and the terms are changing discount leaving you have the right to terminate the contract without penalty.

Read the small print on those inserts included with your bill, it will spell out that you have 30 days may vary on where you live to cancel your contract with no charge simply because they changed the contract.

You signing the contract, agreeing to the standard rate. The discount comes after the fact and is not contingent upon the contact. Meaning, that it can change at any time, T-Mobile in this case terminating the agreement they have with your employer.

Which T-Mobile has every right to do, just like your Employer can terminate the agreement with T-Mobile to offer their employees a discount. This happens a lot actually.

You sign the contract first, discount is applied after the fact. Untrue, I as many others stated had to sign a contract specifically to get the discount. In order to get the discount I had to agree to a 2 year agreement.

For a much better network, I say take the plunge and go to Verizon. I just noticed that also what tmobile going to say about that or just try and ignore that plan. Perhaps the big push in Tmobile was a setup for the Sprint take over.

Now they might have run the company longterm. Am I the only one that beleives the Sprint take over would have been a good? I think the Sprint and TMO need merge to be able to compete properly with the top two.

And yes, TMO sees that this is no longer going to occur hence the changes we see now. I agree it will get less uncarrier day by day…. Folks promised to keep the price war going even if they merged.

TMobile has already given up on the price war. Well just my opinion. I feel that if the two merged they would be able to challenge top two via a price war.

If what has been reported is true this is a really short notice for such a dramatic change to be implemented on April T-Mobile LTE works great when it’s not congested but there were a couple of times at airports the download speed was horrible even when my phone was showing 4G LTE.

Their coverage is also not very consistent I had 0 data coverage at Orlando Convention Center…it was voice only via roaming at all times… Even worse, for people who are still on a 24 month contract, such price increase is really unfair.

I’d rather keep my old plan with MB data than subsidize people who use a lot of data. They were only profitable in Q1 but losses were piling up the other 3 quarters. This change is not a good sign.

Look at the number of comments…. This is important to people especially T-Mobile customers who are usually more price-conscious to begin with. Most normal companies grandfather existing customers in.

I have been receiving discount on our 4 lines for many years now. I am not happy, but I understand why T-mobile is doing it. They have added so much value to my plan over the years including unlimited data while overseas and from this month unlimited international SMS.

Giving back the discount if this keep T-mobile healthy and better able to grow and acquire more spectrum, I am all for it. They separated out data and voice and did not give discount on the data part.

T-mobile is still the best deal in town. Why does everyone have to swallow the all you can eat model? The discount has been reduced a lot since they switched to the mobile share plans following T-Mobile to price based on data only.

There were differences depending on which company you had your discount through. Call the loyalty department and request a credit in the amount of your monthly discount multiplied by the number of months left on your EIP.

This strategy will only preserve your savings for a set period. Per the agent I just spoke to, the account holder does not have to be the employee. The rep you talked to is incorrect.

The account owner is the only person that can get the discount. Unless something changes, we will find out soon. If the agent was incorrect, they still offered the solution on a recorded interaction.

In years past, my line was on an account held by a family member. More evidence that T-Mobile should just adopt a yearly employment verification policy instead of this drastic change. That rep, nor their supervisor, has the power to put on a discount for a customer.

They got all those subscribers to join and many of them bought a phone through T-Mobile and are still paying it off. Seems pretty shady to me to just pull the rug out from under them after they may have just joined.

Guess I switched just in time. Seriously, do a quick Google. If I somehow missed it, please someone paste the link for me. Way to screw over your loyal costumers. So where did the money you saved before when you switched to Simple Choice Plans go?

They raised my rates and just said we are still the cheapest out there and I apologize. T-Mo is now to the point, where it is no point being with them. Its sad when Boost mobile looks more attractive than Tmobile now.

Just playin…this stinks for you corporate folks. Seems like another step backwards along with recent Jump downgrade. Earn some posting history and then you can talk.

By the way, I was a rep for over 2 years for T-mobile. Kinda have a little better insight on some things than other people. The system leverages Google’s Knowledge Graph project, a system used to assemble more detailed search results by analyzing their meaning and connections.

Specialized cards currently comprise: In January, Google introduced the ability for participating, installed third-party apps to generate cards; on launch, this included apps such as Airbnb, eBay, The Guardian, Pandora Radio and Lyft among others.

When a user activates the feature, by holding the “Home” button or using a voice command, the entire text content of the current screen is parsed to search for keywords and other information such as the names of people, television programs and films, etc.

Users can also use voice commands to ask questions related to the subjects of these cards.

Seriously if you are running a business and cant work around 30 dollars then your business has no reason for existing. Sprint may be the answer then. Its not just a few bucks to a lot of people, its dishonest.

And a move like this will move them to other carriers. People come to T-mobile to pay less. A lot of back tracking what next is t-mobile going to remove unlimited data completely? Is t-mobile going to start going back to minute plans?

Military gets to keep theirs but this is still pretty bad news. Guess they have to pay for all those planned network upgrades. Now that your raising my rates… AIO is even cheaper.

Ill stop by a store and handle it next week. More then enough data. Especially with no overage charges. Wifi at home, work etc. We sell AIO the store i work at and we get a lot of complaints about that.

They will not retract this as they have a big obligation to upgrade all towers to LTE by they need the extra cash flow of course there will be some bad but if they keep their promise it will be a great thing.

Who cares about upgrade if they lose their customers. No contract to have people stuck to them. I understand upgrading cost money, but they need to let the customers who are still paying off their jump phones, to keep their existing corporate discount….

Tmobile is all about the customer, then listen to them. Well might be time for a change. Sounds like you already have your foot out the door. You are the typical person want something for nothing.

Will never support Netflix because of this never have anyway, and definitely never will. Actually, you are wrong there. No discount is obviously worse than any discount at all.

Not happy with this decision. Existing subscribers should be grandfathered. This is the downside of not having a minimum term agreement. Feels like I am in a contract with out one since I am forced to pay my Note 3 off without having all the money up front to do so.

Reason why I am made about having to shell out even more to To bile now. I stayed with them to save. In John told every T-Mobile employee that we were not getting raises this year.

No matter how well you did, no one got a raise. He told us to have faith in him, and he would deliver. He needed the money to help re-launch TMO. We were just as mad as the folks in this thread.

All it was doing was throwing money out the door. Yes this is exactly why we joined. The only reason to go tmo was to save money. We had VZW offering with discounts for 3 smartphones but they were also going to give us the phones.

With all these changes and price increases the last few months what is stopping customers from getting there ETF paid off then leaving tmobile. The difference between you and I is that I am not an employee of T-Mobile.

All of that is fine, but not on my dime. I can agree with changing strategy going forward, but changes like this are usually never retroactive for customers. BTW, Legere responded to my tweet on the subject, but it was a cookie-cutter answer.

The fact he responded at all is what I like about T-Mobile, the business decision will make me look at other options at a minimum. Do you know what percentage of customers hot the discount?

I bet many employees wouldnt even know they were entitled to one anyway. As with everything, the people on this blog are not representative of the customer base as a whole.

Very little added cost for an additional customer. Loses the shine for tmobile, no reason to switch. This will affect their ability to gain customers more than the small added revenue.

If they wanted to simplify, they could have gotten rid of discounts and folded in fees. Those are the mystery. If he wants to simplify, do it! Pretend you lost your job and had to get a new one.

Look at the glass half full. Same with people always bragging about grandfathered plans. Company has no obligation to honor that are can change it at any moment like Verizon did, requiring people to pay full price for phones to keep unlimited..

They actually ARE honoring unlimited data, just not allowing contact renewals for it. Just have those of us who truly qualify verify employment yearly. I financed a new phone on EIP a month ago!

Plus I had more reliable service, especially in buildings. You sound like a problem for any carrier. I mean the name would explain it. You amuse me and what difference would that make I am all for competition and have voiced my support on this site many of times.

I feel you are too sensitive to the fact a company needs to make changes to upkeep their promise to consumers. They can go about it through other means instead of pissing everyone off.

Its a matter of needs do you need true unlimited data or not. Sadly that is the money factor for the carriers. It would be good for Cam to find out what percentage of Tmobile customers get this discount and will be affected.

It probably is not a majority and they have to look at ways to increase revenues while affecting the fewest people. Getting more customers while losing money is not gonna work.

Maybe because in the economy that we live in a few dollars can buy milk for the kids or put a little gas in your car. Hey, I have an idea, since people want to save a few buck every month, and you are questioning them, how about you send us a few dollars once a month to cover the cost.

Your right… because I have Tmobile. And not sure where you live, but gallon of milk near me is 3. A little empathy might be nice.. If everyone had extra money to spare, Tmobile wouldnt have entered into a low price war.

I agree with Dakota. I am sure there are customers on Tmobile in the same situation. Tmobile, may you expect the same because that extra savings each month made that little difference.

Why else would you leave a carrier? The services suck for the price paid. So naturally you leave if the value is there. Jumping carriers to save a few bucks in the long run will cost you more.

I loved them lowering prices, shaking up the industry. But now TMobile is raising prices? While still having the worst network coverage by far? This seems like a very ill-conceived move.

And their coverage is quite good. Now is NOT the time to be raising prices. Why would I consider TMobile again? If they, or even Verizon did this, I guarantee without a doubt that would do it.

Users are trapped with those expensive phones they bought with zero down and now owe hundreds of dollars on. Theres no free lunch. Thanks a lot guys. Never trusted you with device or technical advice, but little did I know you were worse than just unknowledgable.

Jumping ship to sprint 24 percent. And here is why. I used the discount to factor in if t-mobile would be cheaper. After being a loyal customer since I may end up looking for other options.

Good thing I still have jump because I may end up jumping to a chappy phone from my Note 3 so I can afford the payments and pay it off faster. I have an idea! Sound like a good deal? Still uses the Tmobile network however.

Plus I am offered a bigger discount. As for a contract of 2 years, I will be fine with that. Hell, I was with Tmobile for almost Also with having to finance a phone through jump for 24 months you are still in away in a contract as far as I an concerned.

You prepaid customers are always the ones barking louder about discounts and prices over ppl that have pot paid plans. Why not just buy a Moto or Nexus phone?

Why would you get a phone from T-mo? Enjoy being lowest priority traffic all the time. When your call to the hospital to check on a dying family member drops? Family mobile customers are lower priority than t-mobile but certainly not the lowest.

T-Mobile is the least congested network so capacity issues are rarely an issue anyway. Those last two or three months I experienced a much higher dropped call ratio in my area and data was sometimes interrupted.

Do u have stock in T-Mobile or something? People should make their own decisions on what works best for them. Everyone has different needs, priorities and budgets.

Do you use tmo or family mobile or some other provider? Each post you say a different thing. With my Family Mobile discount it is actually less though, that is, if I were to go to Family Mobile… which is looking more and more tempting.

Straight talk is 2. That would be even better!! Let us choose if we want the discount or international texting and data roaming.. But not better for them. With 2 yr contract I actually paid less per month with sprint its just there 4g is really bad in NJ barely mbps.

They keep changing stuff up I am going prepaid. Do people buy their phones from t-mobile? So now i have an unlocked world phone that a carrier paid my ETF. These ideas was not thought out what makes a person have to stay with tmobile after there etf is paid off.

Legere going to shake up the industry, ya right. His talk is worse than his bite. Interestingly, many of his latest moves have been very carrier like. People here keep thinking hes some charitable guy trying to do the right thing for them.

Hes a CEO of a public company who needs to make a profit. The moves originally were to get headlines and get customers. That was working, but they also lost money so need to do thinks to change that.

Many people made the jump but now are stuck with phone payments. Its not about Changing the industry as that does nothing for T-mobile. Everything theyve done can be copied and coverage is important.

I notice Ive been seeing a ton of VZ commercials so they seem to be getting more aggressive tight now too.. It would be nice to have all carriers working on the same technology and have all phones able to work.

That way, you could own tour phone and switch whenever you wanted. In the model, tmobile needs customers more than they need to squeeze out extra revenue. This loses the shine, the maverick that was tmobile.

Makes them just the slightly sometimes cheaper provider with worst coverage. Back to same old slug for tmobile. Even if they did it for a very limited time, but grandfathered those that did, yep it would make Tmobile Bleed.

Well of course if they brought unlimited back people would switch, because they have better coverage. But then you know what would happen? Great coverage, Fast speeds, cheap prices, and unlimited data.

This is why you choose your carrier wisely and one that fits your needs. Go to a truck stop and see if any of them have T-mobile for service. First thing is, I do have two phones on the EIP.

I get HD Voice which makes a world of difference. The opportunity to upgrade every 6 months with Jump is very cool. I knew about coverage issues but was comfortable with them, because i live in a well covered area, and my travel to less covered areas is very infrequent.

For me its paying the phone off with almost 24 months to go. Anyone else feel like they are in a hidden contract? You are signing a contract with them when you finance the phone.

I knew it all along, but I figured I liked the service and was saving there anyways, so why not? Its a phone contract, but the end result for the customer is the same.

I DO get more for my money though. The issue is that a lot of people factor these things into their budget, and to get something pulled out from under them is not good for anybody. The fact that I WAS on a grandfathered plan, and can no longer get back on it!

Next dumb Tmobile move: Rape us for every last penny! I never had family mobile. I have always paid my bill on time for the most part. Please, spend some time on another real you know, with their own towers network and tell me about BS.

Go with Verizon and their upgrade fees, written out grandfathering, and horrid phone selection. That already passed when Tmobile said no to selling to them. But after all the customers they are about to lose after this….

I am sure Soft banks CEO is overjoyed about not buying them. Why are you so upset? T-Mobile is still waaay cheaper then the duopoly. We are not entitled to a discount.

Tricked you though, right? So why did you reply with the negative connotation that Verizon does their own EIP but then defend T-mobile doing the same thing.

Lol okay let me explain to you what I meant. Verizon splits the phone payment into monthly installments which I have no problem with TMO actually started that.

Who are you kidding? I had Verizon for 4 years before I went to Tmobile in No issues with their services but wanted to save on my bill considering they charged for roaming at the time. I would need more than 2gb… I will have to consider Sprint, and while their network is a mess, if I stay with them I could end up reaping the benefits in the long run.

After all, they were bought out by Softbank, so I doubt they will just sit on a pile of crap for all the money that was spent. Your only options are pretty much sprint and TMO because you need unlimited.

I actually think sprint will pick themselves up in a year or two and surprise all of us, especially if the FCC limits the amount of Mhz spectrum the duopoly can buy. I think if Verizon offered customers Unlimited data for a limited time, and grandfathered the ones who signed up for it, I would go back to them… no questions asked.

Give then take, give then take, not really liking it anymore. Sure they give you a little more but you end up getting suckered into spending a little more too. The deals always seemed to get better but also I seemed to spend a little more too.

Example, my grandfathered Tmobile plan came close to what I pay now except I get more for my money. Now it seems like I will be getting less. I would switch too, but reality is Verizon would never do that.

It makes way more money off of overage fees that people rack up then it would on an unlimited plan and it would make their network overload like it did last year in NY and LA.

Coverage will be greatly improved, if they keep their promises I hope they do. They also promised to have all Edge 2G areas upgraded to LTE by the end of next year so that makes me have faith that coverage will improve.

Though in my area coverage is very good, when I drive to LA or Santa Barbara my phone drops to 2G for a while on highways, but that will be fixed hopefully by the end of the year! With a discount, its basically the same.

So we can finally stop using their price as an excuse for the crap network and demand something better. Quit with the ignorant comments unless you start learning the actual facts.

We just switched to T-mo because of the price. There is no advantage without the discount. Quite simply, I hope a unicorn impales T-mo and then performs unnatural acts upon them using a bowling ball.

Thus is why I stayed with Starbucks as a side job for over 5 years! His post a lone should be the reason why Tmobile needs to rethink this. This guy actually took a job just so he could save.

You know I know how blogs can changed a company s plan somewhat. Victoria secret and the kimono lingerie line being removed because it was deemed racist or sexist. If cam writes a blog complaining about it and they, t mobile sees it they might change their mind.

Or go to Twitter bombard John L. Twitter account complaining about it and how much you guys hate it and would leave. It will make a difference. The hard core gamers changed the way Microsoft thought, but the damage was already done.

I know because I work in retail. Tmobile needs to rethink this plan before it goes vital and does some serious damage. Basically confirms that the revenue gained from this move will be passed on to all all customers.

In other words, my additional cost will subsidize the Uncarrier strategy. Tell him to keep the international roaming then. Same with the international texts too. What, they give us the texting to tell the people who are calling us from overseas and mysteriously raise our phone bill to fu k off?

Does this apply to the AAA discount? This sucks for all those who were counting on that discount, though and also is a sign that TMo is apparently throwing in the towel on corporate sales. You know what I love about all this?

Those who think a discount is anything more than an indicator that they are being overcharged anyway. Now, to some, I get that the value may not be there, but I find it difficult to believe.

Most of the people average 2. This is my 2 cents to the discussion. Legere was building a brand as the maverick, out to break up the industry. This ruins the image that he was creating.

The very reason so many people were switching to TMobile. Now they are again just another carrier with sometimes slightly cheaper prices and horrendous coverage. Seems like Legere has given up, thrown in the towel.

I personally agree existing customers should be grandfathered. The stream of people coming into Tmobile are attracted to it for a little more than just price. Is this the downside of no contracts?

My saying, sometimes you must spend money to make money. If this means continuing to give the customers their corporate discounts, then so be it. They can find other ways to expand. Ever heard of bank loans?

You know… The ones your competitors tried to buy you with Tmobile? If the money is spent wisely on the upgrades they will see the benefits in the long run. Your right if money is spent wisely.

When I have seen people not even have to buy a tmobile phone, keep there phone unlock it and trade in some cheap phone and tmobile paying them to free another carrier.

How is that expanding the network and bring subscribers. Because it forces tmobiles competitors to play the same game. This hurts their chances. Will compliment well with the a block that they already have.

Now finance a phone, and watch the bill shoot through the roof. Makes the contract with a discount on the phone and your corporate discount every month seem like a better deal. Which could have been bought for almost nothing using the money saved with a Corporate Discount.

To make it comparable to a contact customers are free to make a higher down payment to reduce the monthly device payment. Combined with a simple choice plan still much cheaper than a contract.

People need to read the article. Many people are commenting about losing discounts they have had for years. If they had read the article they would know that they are not losing the discounts if they got them before February 3 of this year.

This news is about as bad for the wireless industry as for when the government took away unemployment for the people who were laid off. Im on the freelancers discount, even with these changes I am staying.

Overall, I am very happy with the service quality and I plan on traveling quite a bit the next couple years and so I want the international roaming. No delays no BS. I expect to have a network that is top of the line like all the others considering I will be paying close to the same.

BS to use Legeres vernacular. If they wanted to simplify they would have discounted everyone, not raise prices. Every college student gets student discounts. Not anymore with T-mobile.

Plus, they could be working part time with a corporation Target, McDonalds, etc. Being on a budget sucks. Thank you Cam for bringing it to our attention. I have an idea…. Tmobile removes all the taxes and fees so my phone is TRULY like a no contract phone, and they can have my corporate discount.

After all, with prepaid their is no hidden fees. You can buy a card and not even get taxed for it. It would be a win win. Yea but that would make sense. All I know is after this go into affect I give tmobile a yr, With all these price increase and changes they should have enough money I shouldnt be seeing EDGE or Deadspots.

I also paid the ETF to switch to the new plans when they came out. The shine is starting to wear off of Tmobile. Still cheaper on Tmo. No, as an existing customer losing my discount, Tmo is still a better deal.

Already have phones on Tmo, not worth switching to pay more and go through the hassle. I get great service with Tmo. T-Mobile changes rate plans and ditches contacts.

They offer easy financing for handsets. In this case, we are not grandfathered into corporate discounts. Might as well switch to att now!!! So, last March, T-mobile put me into a 24 month contract because they added the corporate discount to my account.

If they cancel the discount, I think my contract extension should also be canceled, correct? Oh and did I mention no overage fees? And if you add more lines with TMO, the savings are unreal.

Well hey if you have the money to buy your own phone out right, go for it. And if you only need two lines. You forgot to put overage fees. The plans are unlimited talk and text with a lump of shared data for a single fee.

Because of the step change in line charges depending on the shared data amount, it can make a big difference when comparing prices vs T-Mobile. T-Mobile tends to look better with smaller data amounts.

Usually only the minutes. You will not receive a discount on the data the majority of your bill. Before you start quoting discounts, I would try to get the facts straight, then compare Apples to Apples.

I figured that in. No one even charges for minutes any more. Bad Facts on your part. I had read on forums that the discount applies to the data charge and not add ons.

The discount applies to the data, not the line access fees for the newer shared plans. You can read, right? Honestly, when we have our speedtest competition my TMO note 3 comes in dead last!

Only makes sense for the big time data hogs to linger with Tmo. And even they should look at Metro or Straight Talk. Neither are viable options, even though both are tmobile subs, as far as I know the unlimited of those subs are only capped to 5gbs then slowed down to unusable speeds.

Even then might as well stay under t-mobile because its the same price. That is the stated policy, but ask anyone that actually has Tmobile Straight Talk and they will tell you that they never get throttled.

I just called and switched from postpaid to prepaid. I was getting my discount through my second job at Walmart. My first job does not offer a discount through Tmobile.

I hope everyone affected here can have a work around. This site has been very helpful in giving us heads ups in times of major changes. I get what Legere is saying, discounts as a policy are kind of crappy, better to just offer cheaper plans to everyone.

This is an anti-uncarrier move that will only result in a mass exodus of customers. You can buy used on eBay for less. Nothing dramatic happening with phones any more, older phone is fine.

Why do people always want to get something for free. You want more towers and better service where do the money suppose to come from. T-Mobile offers lower plans, free international text and roaming.

Yeah you might not need the features everyday but when you do its free. Some people need to man up they offer no contracts so if its cheaper somewhere else you need to be Att or Verizon porting out instead of whining on here.

Their customer service is dead last and their network is dead last. T-mobile increasing bills on existing customers will lose them customers. Why do they get something for free.

Most customers would rather have a smaller bill. People on the 1GB and 3GB plans are paying the same amout that they always have. Only new customers getting the unlimited plan, old customers upgrading to the unlimited plan, and people affected by this removal of the discount.

They removed the corporate discounts to subsidize other features, such as paying off ETFs for new customers and the added international features. Unfortunately, due to regulatory issues and a lack of public support, the shock and awe approach has not yielded a buyer for Tmobile.

Now Legere has an unexpected long ground war before him, one that he cannot win unless he takes back in one way or other the very things that made his stupidly titled Uncarrier strategy work. Truth is, the inertia of the American wireless industry has won, and the Uncarrier strategy will soon show itself to be the flimflammery it always has been.

Some of those comments now have different names on them such as the parent to this comment, so it seems like there were different people posting those comments. Softbank is the first buyer that presented itself publicly for wanting to buy the company.

That does not mean others are not watching the company with interest. Dish or some other entity could always step in. We need 4 maybe even 5 nationwide carriers to keep at least an appearance of a competitive environment.

Sadly, TMobile is no better. The goal of any business is to charge as much as the market will bear, in order to be as profitable for shareholders as possible.

Start a charity providing cell service at cost if you disagree. Personally, I see this as moving closer to transparent pricing, prepaid-style. The price advertised is the price you pay. The postpaid industry is not there yet, but any time confusion or obfuscation enter the pricing equation, consumers lose.

The timing could have been better. They should have eliminated corporate discounts when they rolled out uncarrier 1. Made clear pricing part of the plan. Maybe uncarrier 5 or whatever will be along those lines.

If the top two all of a sudden decide to bring back unlimited then T Mobile will be on its knees for sure. However, lets be honest, I have unlimited and no matter how hard I try and max out data on or around 3 gig per month.

So in essence I am paying for those that go higher. I hazzard a guess that most TMO users on unlimited keep it for the warm and fuzzy inside. If you work at a local school district your discount still applies.

Just cleared that up with Tmobile. I just posted a rant because I thought I would lose that discount my mom works for a school. I get the discount through Los Angele County, local government,. Maybe T-mobile is looking to become less revolutionary so the government will allow Sprint to buy them.

I share a plan with my mom and we get a discount because she works at a school. Would you be able to elaborate as to why it is not true. I see you post this but do not explain why.

So as long as the retail or care rep set up the discount properly, it should show GSA and they should be keeping their discount. If this was about corporations, he should have kept T-Mobile advantage alive for students and the organizations that keep them for alumni.

That would be on the data portion only. Anyone have a number directly to this department, id like to see if i still qualify and if it is set up properly in the system….

The money has to come from somewhere. Seems things are a changing now that there are stockholders involved. It may be a while but it will happen. We know he will never do that.

Why no big press tour about these great changes??? I have been trying to decide whether to go to straight talk or not. This will confirm that decision.

I have been with T-mobile for 12 years and this will finish it for me. You wish the site would quit blowing smoke and state facts? Well do so yourself. The speeds are craaaaaap. Yes I know I can leave but do you think TMO is in a position to be losing customers but especially customers like me?

This is to illustrate the following: What do you think will be better for its shareholders? People here — clueless mostly — mock Sprint and in its current state it should be mocked.

I think the person down below was right: The problem is TMO is just too far behind in spectrum position. Sprint, except within km of Canada and Mexico, had voice on mhz and lte on mhz. I read that sprint mhz voice signal has been seen miles away from the originating cell tower.

And obviously mhz lte is a game changer. So now only TMO has no deployed sub ghz spectrum. My opinion is used to educate others and not for my own benefit. I talked of how it affects other people and not myself if you were able to read or took the time to.

I doubt you did. They should fire you and give me a tax break! I see where you are coming from on the discounts being all over the place with AAA and friends etc… I think there are people who deserve it and it will hurt them.

Your guess on pricing is wildly inaccurate. But it all stays with Apple. Some phones not usually tier one phones are even sold for a slight loss. It will be Interesting to see what will Happen.

If you read up on this forum, http: Pretty confident this move will backfire, maybe not immediately, but it will be short – term. Perhaps T-Mobile should not make dumb business decisions like this. So glad I was able to trade in a few blackberrys bc that paid off a few phones EIP.

Now that was a stupid promotion, dumbest in the telecom space in years. Drop by and let us know what your speedtest results are. So fuuuuiiudge you TMO. Sprint framily here I come with my 3 lines and with my sisters 3 TMO lines.

In Detroit, I get Mbps on iPhone 4s but in anaheim, with bars, my downloads have been: I was driving on freeway so basically outside. I go from 3 bars of 4g to zero back up to 4bars.

THIS oh so improved network is why we have to pay more? I can excuse the loss of 4g and even 2g in buildings but the above is inexcusable. Whenever I call tech support, they ask: Did you upgrade to latest software?

Do you have latest carrier profile? Did you restore recently? If the REAL reason is: Btw, that is the real reason; someone from advanced tech support told me.

After traveling to Myrtle Beach, Sc and realizing how unusable 2g is, I was very disappointed. ATT does not have the same thing as jump and its not worth my time to explain why to you. WiFi calling is usually pointless, Verizon is adding global texting as well, paying off the phone is the same as a contract but just implemented differently and can ultimately cost you more money if you leave early, Uncarrier is just a slogan and is meaningless without value behind it, and the spectrum purchase still leaves them with LARGE gaps in coverage compared to other carriers.

Thank goodness I got wind of this before my 30 days was up. EDGE is a complete joke because you pay for a phone twice only to avoid a contract. Uncarrier refers to 4 specific actions t-mobile has taken to improve customer experience no contracts, jump, etf reimbursement and simple global.

WiFi calling is typically pointless because most homes, as you pointed out, are covered by at least 2G. How exactly do you pay for a phone on Edge twice? Verizon Wireless gives Edge customers a discount on service, as long as they are using the Edge program.

You can upgrade your phone when you want to, not when the other carriers say you can and the list goes on. In my honest opinion… Everyone who has a job and a phone line has to have a corporate discount?

That sounds way off to me. No company opens up shop to give their money away. Point being, find what works for you with whatever company you desire and go for it. None of the wireless companies are any good.

A corporate discount is scammy when nearly everyone qualifies for one. And be happy about it. Same deal with the offers everyone gives when you call to quit. Really bad idea without a comparable discount program in place like a tiered customer loyalty discount to encourage customers to stay with T-Mobile in lieu of contracts.

All of these companies just want your money at the end of the day anyway. Large corporations go with carriers that offer discounts like these as a means of giving them hundreds or thousands of lines.

Not a real friendly move. As it stands T-Mobile already has a small B2B base and lack the online tools, self service options and expedited shipping options that other carriers provide. Discontinuing a service for new customers is one thing.

Taking it completely away from corporations who were offered this in return for their MSA acceptance is another. Business that have service under the business name have never been eligible for the advantage discount, they get a built in discounts on the line cost once they go over 6 lines so that will still be in place…..

Instead of spending so much money on ETF payments maybe you could consider taking care of the customers you have! This is a really bad move. So, the device is a positive exchange.

We have a good secondary market. We have a lot of ways to use it. And then, if you look at our industry, the biggest money spent is in acquisition cost to get a customer, and the huge amount of money that people spend in advertising and other mechanisms to incent you to come.

So the payback on this is single digit months. Part of why its so stupid to piss off all your existing customers. Hard to get customers, easy to lose them. T-Mo is betting that the reason customers go there is to save a few bucks a month.

For most customers, they will still save a few bucks a month. Almost nobody chooses T-Mo for the coverage. My bet is there will be a little bit of negative press until whatever the next big uncarrier announcement it, then this will blow over.

Lol read your receipt if you got your phones from a T-Mobile store its 14 days to return or exchange. Read your customer agreement. Sorry to hear they are discontinuing the corporate discounts but good to know they are keeping govt discounts.

This is turning into the Disadvantage Plan. That is unless you are a. Every week a new announcement and many of those here waited to see what was next. Went and saw his replies which kind of fixed it up for me.

He does a good job of explaining why. What are you talking about? Check it before you post. All I had to do was give my membership number to TMobile. Well, I lucked out. Called yesterday however, and got switched with all migration fees waived.

It is all because of T-Mobile. Less competition means screwed customers. No one cares why, we just care that the price difference is now marginal. It will be nice to get better more reliable indoor service.

My biggest trade off was giving up indoor service in more than a few location but that was okay bc at least at home with wifi I could always use a wifi app I have an iPhone so no T-Mobile wifi app was not a big deal considering the yearly savings on T-Mobile.

I became a big advocate for T-Mobile except when they did away with my soft cap of 10GB to 5GB and then forcing me to a simple choice plan. The unintended consequence was that the switch to simple choice forced me to use less than gig of data.

So plan did you choose on ATT when you switched? I use a lot of data usually about 10 to 15 GB a month, the other lines not so much. If youve worked for wireless carrier, youll know that this discount is manipulated by weak salesman as a tool to close a sale throught all carriers.

Yes this sucks for a lot of customers if you are that unhappy call and speak to customer loyalty. Or email executiveresponse Tmobile dot com. Been there, done that. You get the canned responses you read from leaked documents in the article.

Lets see if you are gutsy enough to follow this move ;. That position is wholly indefensible. You did bring up a good point though. It will happen I promise. All it takes is one weak link in the chain to break the connection.

Honestly, for all the hassle, misinformation by T-Mo care, and total lack of effort to keep me as a customer, it would take A LOT for me to ever leave again. It would take even more for me to leave for T-Mobile again.

Suffered through weak spots in coverage and data saturation in congested areas because of the price difference: Tired of going to conventions and community events and not able to get a connection that is saturated or weak and unreliable.

Spotty coverage and 2g speeds beyond city limits and missing out some handsets is one thing. But losing this discount is another. Time to research other alternatives but i have a feeling tmobile is still a good value, but paying more for tje same thing is not right.

Paying more for the same thing happens all the time. I never understood why people expect whatever cell plan they were on a decade ago to still be honored by their provider for the same price until forever.

Do you still make the same wage you made a decade ago? In Google added Now cards to the notification center in Chrome OS and in the Chrome browser, however the notification center was later removed entirely from the Chrome browser.

Since, Google has gradually phased out reference to “Google Now” in the Google app, with remaining use of “Now” being largely removed in October, including replacing “Now cards” with “feed”. Unlike Google Now, however, Assistant can engage in two-way dialogue with the user.

In late, reports surfaced that Google was enhancing its product Google Voice Search for the next version of Android. It was originally codenamed “Majel” after Majel Barrett, the wife of Gene Roddenberry and the voice of computer systems in the Star Trek franchise; it was also codenamed “assistant”.

On June 27, , Google Now was unveiled as part of the premier demonstration of Android 4. Other additions were movie, concert, stock and news cards based on the users location and search history. Also included was the facility to create calendar events using voice input, for instance “Make a new appointment for dinner with Steve next Thursday at 7pm”.

On December 5, , an update to the Google Search application brought several new features to Google Now, including cards for nearby events, searching by camera when at a museum or shop, airplane boarding passes found from e-mail United Airlines in the first instance, more airlines followed.

In addition Google Now would show cards for the weather for upcoming travel destinations, birthday reminders; and monthly summaries of biking and walking activities. On March 21, , the executive Chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, stated that Google had submitted an iOS version of Google Now to Apple for review and that the app was awaiting approval, but he later said that this was not true [11] after Apple denied this was the case.

Despite this, on April 29, , Google Now was made available for iOS in an update to the operating system’s Google Search application. Based on Google Chrome code review on December, Google Now was expected to be integrated into the desktop version of Google Chrome.

Google Now is implemented as an aspect of the Google Search application. It recognizes repeated actions that a user performs on the device common locations, repeated calendar appointments, search queries, etc.

The system leverages Google’s Knowledge Graph project, a system used to assemble more detailed search results by analyzing their meaning and connections. Specialized cards currently comprise: In January, Google introduced the ability for participating, installed third-party apps to generate cards; on launch, this included apps such as Airbnb, eBay, The Guardian, Pandora Radio and Lyft among others.

When a user activates the feature, by holding the “Home” button or using a voice command, the entire text content of the current screen is parsed to search for keywords and other information such as the names of people, television programs and films, etc.

Users can also use voice commands to ask questions related to the subjects of these cards. Scott Webster of CNET praised Google Now for its ability to remind users of events based on past location histories and check-ins, and further commended it for providing “information instantly in a clean, intuitive manner” without the user’s requesting it.

Unlike Apple’s assistant app Siri, which sources its information from specific websites, [28] Google Now sources its information from any website deemed relevant.

However, others argue that Google simply does the search differently, not incorrectly. Some people want Google to filter the results for “validity”, [30] but the competing opinion is that Google is not in the business of deciding whether certain listings deserve to be in the returned group of results.

Those are the mystery. If he wants to simplify, do it! Pretend you lost your job and had to get a new one. Look at the glass half full. Same with people always bragging about grandfathered plans.

Company has no obligation to honor that are can change it at any moment like Verizon did, requiring people to pay full price for phones to keep unlimited.. They actually ARE honoring unlimited data, just not allowing contact renewals for it.

Just have those of us who truly qualify verify employment yearly. I financed a new phone on EIP a month ago! Plus I had more reliable service, especially in buildings. You sound like a problem for any carrier.

I mean the name would explain it. You amuse me and what difference would that make I am all for competition and have voiced my support on this site many of times. I feel you are too sensitive to the fact a company needs to make changes to upkeep their promise to consumers.

They can go about it through other means instead of pissing everyone off. Its a matter of needs do you need true unlimited data or not. Sadly that is the money factor for the carriers. It would be good for Cam to find out what percentage of Tmobile customers get this discount and will be affected.

It probably is not a majority and they have to look at ways to increase revenues while affecting the fewest people. Getting more customers while losing money is not gonna work. Maybe because in the economy that we live in a few dollars can buy milk for the kids or put a little gas in your car.

Hey, I have an idea, since people want to save a few buck every month, and you are questioning them, how about you send us a few dollars once a month to cover the cost. Your right… because I have Tmobile.

And not sure where you live, but gallon of milk near me is 3. A little empathy might be nice.. If everyone had extra money to spare, Tmobile wouldnt have entered into a low price war.

I agree with Dakota. I am sure there are customers on Tmobile in the same situation. Tmobile, may you expect the same because that extra savings each month made that little difference. Why else would you leave a carrier?

The services suck for the price paid. So naturally you leave if the value is there. Jumping carriers to save a few bucks in the long run will cost you more. I loved them lowering prices, shaking up the industry.

But now TMobile is raising prices? While still having the worst network coverage by far? This seems like a very ill-conceived move. And their coverage is quite good.

Now is NOT the time to be raising prices. Why would I consider TMobile again? If they, or even Verizon did this, I guarantee without a doubt that would do it. Users are trapped with those expensive phones they bought with zero down and now owe hundreds of dollars on.

Theres no free lunch. Thanks a lot guys. Never trusted you with device or technical advice, but little did I know you were worse than just unknowledgable. Jumping ship to sprint 24 percent. And here is why.

I used the discount to factor in if t-mobile would be cheaper. After being a loyal customer since I may end up looking for other options. Good thing I still have jump because I may end up jumping to a chappy phone from my Note 3 so I can afford the payments and pay it off faster.

I have an idea! Sound like a good deal? Still uses the Tmobile network however. Plus I am offered a bigger discount. As for a contract of 2 years, I will be fine with that.

Hell, I was with Tmobile for almost Also with having to finance a phone through jump for 24 months you are still in away in a contract as far as I an concerned. You prepaid customers are always the ones barking louder about discounts and prices over ppl that have pot paid plans.

Why not just buy a Moto or Nexus phone? Why would you get a phone from T-mo? Enjoy being lowest priority traffic all the time. When your call to the hospital to check on a dying family member drops?

Family mobile customers are lower priority than t-mobile but certainly not the lowest. T-Mobile is the least congested network so capacity issues are rarely an issue anyway. Those last two or three months I experienced a much higher dropped call ratio in my area and data was sometimes interrupted.

Do u have stock in T-Mobile or something? People should make their own decisions on what works best for them. Everyone has different needs, priorities and budgets.

Do you use tmo or family mobile or some other provider? Each post you say a different thing. With my Family Mobile discount it is actually less though, that is, if I were to go to Family Mobile… which is looking more and more tempting.

Straight talk is 2. That would be even better!! Let us choose if we want the discount or international texting and data roaming.. But not better for them. With 2 yr contract I actually paid less per month with sprint its just there 4g is really bad in NJ barely mbps.

They keep changing stuff up I am going prepaid. Do people buy their phones from t-mobile? So now i have an unlocked world phone that a carrier paid my ETF. These ideas was not thought out what makes a person have to stay with tmobile after there etf is paid off.

Legere going to shake up the industry, ya right. His talk is worse than his bite. Interestingly, many of his latest moves have been very carrier like. People here keep thinking hes some charitable guy trying to do the right thing for them.

Hes a CEO of a public company who needs to make a profit. The moves originally were to get headlines and get customers. That was working, but they also lost money so need to do thinks to change that.

Many people made the jump but now are stuck with phone payments. Its not about Changing the industry as that does nothing for T-mobile. Everything theyve done can be copied and coverage is important.

I notice Ive been seeing a ton of VZ commercials so they seem to be getting more aggressive tight now too.. It would be nice to have all carriers working on the same technology and have all phones able to work.

That way, you could own tour phone and switch whenever you wanted. In the model, tmobile needs customers more than they need to squeeze out extra revenue.

This loses the shine, the maverick that was tmobile. Makes them just the slightly sometimes cheaper provider with worst coverage. Back to same old slug for tmobile. Even if they did it for a very limited time, but grandfathered those that did, yep it would make Tmobile Bleed.

Well of course if they brought unlimited back people would switch, because they have better coverage. But then you know what would happen? Great coverage, Fast speeds, cheap prices, and unlimited data.

This is why you choose your carrier wisely and one that fits your needs. Go to a truck stop and see if any of them have T-mobile for service. First thing is, I do have two phones on the EIP.

I get HD Voice which makes a world of difference. The opportunity to upgrade every 6 months with Jump is very cool. I knew about coverage issues but was comfortable with them, because i live in a well covered area, and my travel to less covered areas is very infrequent.

For me its paying the phone off with almost 24 months to go. Anyone else feel like they are in a hidden contract? You are signing a contract with them when you finance the phone. I knew it all along, but I figured I liked the service and was saving there anyways, so why not?

Its a phone contract, but the end result for the customer is the same. I DO get more for my money though. The issue is that a lot of people factor these things into their budget, and to get something pulled out from under them is not good for anybody.

The fact that I WAS on a grandfathered plan, and can no longer get back on it! Next dumb Tmobile move: Rape us for every last penny! I never had family mobile. I have always paid my bill on time for the most part.

Please, spend some time on another real you know, with their own towers network and tell me about BS. Go with Verizon and their upgrade fees, written out grandfathering, and horrid phone selection.

That already passed when Tmobile said no to selling to them. But after all the customers they are about to lose after this…. I am sure Soft banks CEO is overjoyed about not buying them. Why are you so upset?

T-Mobile is still waaay cheaper then the duopoly. We are not entitled to a discount. Tricked you though, right? So why did you reply with the negative connotation that Verizon does their own EIP but then defend T-mobile doing the same thing.

Lol okay let me explain to you what I meant. Verizon splits the phone payment into monthly installments which I have no problem with TMO actually started that. Who are you kidding?

I had Verizon for 4 years before I went to Tmobile in No issues with their services but wanted to save on my bill considering they charged for roaming at the time. I would need more than 2gb… I will have to consider Sprint, and while their network is a mess, if I stay with them I could end up reaping the benefits in the long run.

After all, they were bought out by Softbank, so I doubt they will just sit on a pile of crap for all the money that was spent. Your only options are pretty much sprint and TMO because you need unlimited.

I actually think sprint will pick themselves up in a year or two and surprise all of us, especially if the FCC limits the amount of Mhz spectrum the duopoly can buy. I think if Verizon offered customers Unlimited data for a limited time, and grandfathered the ones who signed up for it, I would go back to them… no questions asked.

Give then take, give then take, not really liking it anymore. Sure they give you a little more but you end up getting suckered into spending a little more too. The deals always seemed to get better but also I seemed to spend a little more too.

Example, my grandfathered Tmobile plan came close to what I pay now except I get more for my money. Now it seems like I will be getting less. I would switch too, but reality is Verizon would never do that.

It makes way more money off of overage fees that people rack up then it would on an unlimited plan and it would make their network overload like it did last year in NY and LA.

Coverage will be greatly improved, if they keep their promises I hope they do. They also promised to have all Edge 2G areas upgraded to LTE by the end of next year so that makes me have faith that coverage will improve.

Though in my area coverage is very good, when I drive to LA or Santa Barbara my phone drops to 2G for a while on highways, but that will be fixed hopefully by the end of the year!

With a discount, its basically the same. So we can finally stop using their price as an excuse for the crap network and demand something better. Quit with the ignorant comments unless you start learning the actual facts.

We just switched to T-mo because of the price. There is no advantage without the discount. Quite simply, I hope a unicorn impales T-mo and then performs unnatural acts upon them using a bowling ball.

Thus is why I stayed with Starbucks as a side job for over 5 years! His post a lone should be the reason why Tmobile needs to rethink this. This guy actually took a job just so he could save.

You know I know how blogs can changed a company s plan somewhat. Victoria secret and the kimono lingerie line being removed because it was deemed racist or sexist.

If cam writes a blog complaining about it and they, t mobile sees it they might change their mind. Or go to Twitter bombard John L. Twitter account complaining about it and how much you guys hate it and would leave.

It will make a difference. The hard core gamers changed the way Microsoft thought, but the damage was already done. I know because I work in retail. Tmobile needs to rethink this plan before it goes vital and does some serious damage.

Basically confirms that the revenue gained from this move will be passed on to all all customers. In other words, my additional cost will subsidize the Uncarrier strategy. Tell him to keep the international roaming then.

Same with the international texts too. What, they give us the texting to tell the people who are calling us from overseas and mysteriously raise our phone bill to fu k off? Does this apply to the AAA discount?

This sucks for all those who were counting on that discount, though and also is a sign that TMo is apparently throwing in the towel on corporate sales.

You know what I love about all this? Those who think a discount is anything more than an indicator that they are being overcharged anyway. Now, to some, I get that the value may not be there, but I find it difficult to believe.

Most of the people average 2. This is my 2 cents to the discussion. Legere was building a brand as the maverick, out to break up the industry. This ruins the image that he was creating. The very reason so many people were switching to TMobile.

Now they are again just another carrier with sometimes slightly cheaper prices and horrendous coverage. Seems like Legere has given up, thrown in the towel. I personally agree existing customers should be grandfathered.

The stream of people coming into Tmobile are attracted to it for a little more than just price. Is this the downside of no contracts? My saying, sometimes you must spend money to make money.

If this means continuing to give the customers their corporate discounts, then so be it. They can find other ways to expand. Ever heard of bank loans? You know… The ones your competitors tried to buy you with Tmobile?

If the money is spent wisely on the upgrades they will see the benefits in the long run. Your right if money is spent wisely. When I have seen people not even have to buy a tmobile phone, keep there phone unlock it and trade in some cheap phone and tmobile paying them to free another carrier.

How is that expanding the network and bring subscribers. Because it forces tmobiles competitors to play the same game. This hurts their chances. Will compliment well with the a block that they already have.

Now finance a phone, and watch the bill shoot through the roof. Makes the contract with a discount on the phone and your corporate discount every month seem like a better deal. Which could have been bought for almost nothing using the money saved with a Corporate Discount.

To make it comparable to a contact customers are free to make a higher down payment to reduce the monthly device payment. Combined with a simple choice plan still much cheaper than a contract.

People need to read the article. Many people are commenting about losing discounts they have had for years. If they had read the article they would know that they are not losing the discounts if they got them before February 3 of this year.

This news is about as bad for the wireless industry as for when the government took away unemployment for the people who were laid off. Im on the freelancers discount, even with these changes I am staying.

Overall, I am very happy with the service quality and I plan on traveling quite a bit the next couple years and so I want the international roaming. No delays no BS.

I expect to have a network that is top of the line like all the others considering I will be paying close to the same. BS to use Legeres vernacular. If they wanted to simplify they would have discounted everyone, not raise prices.

Every college student gets student discounts. Not anymore with T-mobile. Plus, they could be working part time with a corporation Target, McDonalds, etc. Being on a budget sucks. Thank you Cam for bringing it to our attention.

I have an idea…. Tmobile removes all the taxes and fees so my phone is TRULY like a no contract phone, and they can have my corporate discount. After all, with prepaid their is no hidden fees.

You can buy a card and not even get taxed for it. It would be a win win. Yea but that would make sense. All I know is after this go into affect I give tmobile a yr, With all these price increase and changes they should have enough money I shouldnt be seeing EDGE or Deadspots.

I also paid the ETF to switch to the new plans when they came out. The shine is starting to wear off of Tmobile. Still cheaper on Tmo. No, as an existing customer losing my discount, Tmo is still a better deal.

Already have phones on Tmo, not worth switching to pay more and go through the hassle. I get great service with Tmo. T-Mobile changes rate plans and ditches contacts. They offer easy financing for handsets.

In this case, we are not grandfathered into corporate discounts. Might as well switch to att now!!! So, last March, T-mobile put me into a 24 month contract because they added the corporate discount to my account.

If they cancel the discount, I think my contract extension should also be canceled, correct? Oh and did I mention no overage fees? And if you add more lines with TMO, the savings are unreal. Well hey if you have the money to buy your own phone out right, go for it.

And if you only need two lines. You forgot to put overage fees. The plans are unlimited talk and text with a lump of shared data for a single fee. Because of the step change in line charges depending on the shared data amount, it can make a big difference when comparing prices vs T-Mobile.

T-Mobile tends to look better with smaller data amounts. Usually only the minutes. You will not receive a discount on the data the majority of your bill. Before you start quoting discounts, I would try to get the facts straight, then compare Apples to Apples.

I figured that in. No one even charges for minutes any more. Bad Facts on your part. I had read on forums that the discount applies to the data charge and not add ons.

The discount applies to the data, not the line access fees for the newer shared plans. You can read, right? Honestly, when we have our speedtest competition my TMO note 3 comes in dead last!

Only makes sense for the big time data hogs to linger with Tmo. And even they should look at Metro or Straight Talk. Neither are viable options, even though both are tmobile subs, as far as I know the unlimited of those subs are only capped to 5gbs then slowed down to unusable speeds.

Even then might as well stay under t-mobile because its the same price. That is the stated policy, but ask anyone that actually has Tmobile Straight Talk and they will tell you that they never get throttled.

I just called and switched from postpaid to prepaid. I was getting my discount through my second job at Walmart. My first job does not offer a discount through Tmobile. I hope everyone affected here can have a work around.

This site has been very helpful in giving us heads ups in times of major changes. I get what Legere is saying, discounts as a policy are kind of crappy, better to just offer cheaper plans to everyone.

This is an anti-uncarrier move that will only result in a mass exodus of customers. You can buy used on eBay for less. Nothing dramatic happening with phones any more, older phone is fine.

Why do people always want to get something for free. You want more towers and better service where do the money suppose to come from. T-Mobile offers lower plans, free international text and roaming.

Yeah you might not need the features everyday but when you do its free. Some people need to man up they offer no contracts so if its cheaper somewhere else you need to be Att or Verizon porting out instead of whining on here.

Their customer service is dead last and their network is dead last. T-mobile increasing bills on existing customers will lose them customers. Why do they get something for free. Most customers would rather have a smaller bill.

People on the 1GB and 3GB plans are paying the same amout that they always have. Only new customers getting the unlimited plan, old customers upgrading to the unlimited plan, and people affected by this removal of the discount.

They removed the corporate discounts to subsidize other features, such as paying off ETFs for new customers and the added international features. Unfortunately, due to regulatory issues and a lack of public support, the shock and awe approach has not yielded a buyer for Tmobile.

Now Legere has an unexpected long ground war before him, one that he cannot win unless he takes back in one way or other the very things that made his stupidly titled Uncarrier strategy work. Truth is, the inertia of the American wireless industry has won, and the Uncarrier strategy will soon show itself to be the flimflammery it always has been.

Some of those comments now have different names on them such as the parent to this comment, so it seems like there were different people posting those comments. Softbank is the first buyer that presented itself publicly for wanting to buy the company.

That does not mean others are not watching the company with interest. Dish or some other entity could always step in. We need 4 maybe even 5 nationwide carriers to keep at least an appearance of a competitive environment.

Sadly, TMobile is no better. The goal of any business is to charge as much as the market will bear, in order to be as profitable for shareholders as possible. Start a charity providing cell service at cost if you disagree.

Personally, I see this as moving closer to transparent pricing, prepaid-style. The price advertised is the price you pay. The postpaid industry is not there yet, but any time confusion or obfuscation enter the pricing equation, consumers lose.

The timing could have been better. They should have eliminated corporate discounts when they rolled out uncarrier 1. Made clear pricing part of the plan. Maybe uncarrier 5 or whatever will be along those lines.

If the top two all of a sudden decide to bring back unlimited then T Mobile will be on its knees for sure. However, lets be honest, I have unlimited and no matter how hard I try and max out data on or around 3 gig per month.

So in essence I am paying for those that go higher. I hazzard a guess that most TMO users on unlimited keep it for the warm and fuzzy inside. If you work at a local school district your discount still applies.

Just cleared that up with Tmobile. I just posted a rant because I thought I would lose that discount my mom works for a school. I get the discount through Los Angele County, local government,. Maybe T-mobile is looking to become less revolutionary so the government will allow Sprint to buy them.

I share a plan with my mom and we get a discount because she works at a school. Would you be able to elaborate as to why it is not true. I see you post this but do not explain why.

So as long as the retail or care rep set up the discount properly, it should show GSA and they should be keeping their discount. If this was about corporations, he should have kept T-Mobile advantage alive for students and the organizations that keep them for alumni.

That would be on the data portion only. Anyone have a number directly to this department, id like to see if i still qualify and if it is set up properly in the system….

The money has to come from somewhere. Seems things are a changing now that there are stockholders involved. It may be a while but it will happen. We know he will never do that.

Why no big press tour about these great changes??? I have been trying to decide whether to go to straight talk or not. This will confirm that decision. I have been with T-mobile for 12 years and this will finish it for me.

You wish the site would quit blowing smoke and state facts? Well do so yourself. The speeds are craaaaaap. Yes I know I can leave but do you think TMO is in a position to be losing customers but especially customers like me?

This is to illustrate the following: What do you think will be better for its shareholders? People here — clueless mostly — mock Sprint and in its current state it should be mocked.

I think the person down below was right: The problem is TMO is just too far behind in spectrum position. Sprint, except within km of Canada and Mexico, had voice on mhz and lte on mhz.

I read that sprint mhz voice signal has been seen miles away from the originating cell tower. And obviously mhz lte is a game changer. So now only TMO has no deployed sub ghz spectrum.

My opinion is used to educate others and not for my own benefit. I talked of how it affects other people and not myself if you were able to read or took the time to. I doubt you did.

They should fire you and give me a tax break! I see where you are coming from on the discounts being all over the place with AAA and friends etc… I think there are people who deserve it and it will hurt them.

Your guess on pricing is wildly inaccurate. But it all stays with Apple. Some phones not usually tier one phones are even sold for a slight loss. It will be Interesting to see what will Happen.

If you read up on this forum, http: Pretty confident this move will backfire, maybe not immediately, but it will be short – term. Perhaps T-Mobile should not make dumb business decisions like this.

So glad I was able to trade in a few blackberrys bc that paid off a few phones EIP. Now that was a stupid promotion, dumbest in the telecom space in years. Drop by and let us know what your speedtest results are.

So fuuuuiiudge you TMO. Sprint framily here I come with my 3 lines and with my sisters 3 TMO lines. In Detroit, I get Mbps on iPhone 4s but in anaheim, with bars, my downloads have been: I was driving on freeway so basically outside.

I go from 3 bars of 4g to zero back up to 4bars. THIS oh so improved network is why we have to pay more? I can excuse the loss of 4g and even 2g in buildings but the above is inexcusable. Whenever I call tech support, they ask: Did you upgrade to latest software?

Do you have latest carrier profile? Did you restore recently? If the REAL reason is: Btw, that is the real reason; someone from advanced tech support told me. After traveling to Myrtle Beach, Sc and realizing how unusable 2g is, I was very disappointed.

ATT does not have the same thing as jump and its not worth my time to explain why to you. WiFi calling is usually pointless, Verizon is adding global texting as well, paying off the phone is the same as a contract but just implemented differently and can ultimately cost you more money if you leave early, Uncarrier is just a slogan and is meaningless without value behind it, and the spectrum purchase still leaves them with LARGE gaps in coverage compared to other carriers.

Thank goodness I got wind of this before my 30 days was up. EDGE is a complete joke because you pay for a phone twice only to avoid a contract. Uncarrier refers to 4 specific actions t-mobile has taken to improve customer experience no contracts, jump, etf reimbursement and simple global.

WiFi calling is typically pointless because most homes, as you pointed out, are covered by at least 2G. How exactly do you pay for a phone on Edge twice? Verizon Wireless gives Edge customers a discount on service, as long as they are using the Edge program.

You can upgrade your phone when you want to, not when the other carriers say you can and the list goes on. In my honest opinion… Everyone who has a job and a phone line has to have a corporate discount?

That sounds way off to me. No company opens up shop to give their money away. Point being, find what works for you with whatever company you desire and go for it. None of the wireless companies are any good.

A corporate discount is scammy when nearly everyone qualifies for one. And be happy about it. Same deal with the offers everyone gives when you call to quit. Really bad idea without a comparable discount program in place like a tiered customer loyalty discount to encourage customers to stay with T-Mobile in lieu of contracts.

All of these companies just want your money at the end of the day anyway. Large corporations go with carriers that offer discounts like these as a means of giving them hundreds or thousands of lines.

Not a real friendly move. As it stands T-Mobile already has a small B2B base and lack the online tools, self service options and expedited shipping options that other carriers provide.

Discontinuing a service for new customers is one thing. Taking it completely away from corporations who were offered this in return for their MSA acceptance is another. Business that have service under the business name have never been eligible for the advantage discount, they get a built in discounts on the line cost once they go over 6 lines so that will still be in place…..

Instead of spending so much money on ETF payments maybe you could consider taking care of the customers you have! This is a really bad move. So, the device is a positive exchange. We have a good secondary market.

We have a lot of ways to use it. And then, if you look at our industry, the biggest money spent is in acquisition cost to get a customer, and the huge amount of money that people spend in advertising and other mechanisms to incent you to come.

So the payback on this is single digit months. Part of why its so stupid to piss off all your existing customers. Hard to get customers, easy to lose them. T-Mo is betting that the reason customers go there is to save a few bucks a month.

For most customers, they will still save a few bucks a month. Almost nobody chooses T-Mo for the coverage. My bet is there will be a little bit of negative press until whatever the next big uncarrier announcement it, then this will blow over.

Lol read your receipt if you got your phones from a T-Mobile store its 14 days to return or exchange. Read your customer agreement. Sorry to hear they are discontinuing the corporate discounts but good to know they are keeping govt discounts.

This is turning into the Disadvantage Plan. That is unless you are a. Every week a new announcement and many of those here waited to see what was next. Went and saw his replies which kind of fixed it up for me.

He does a good job of explaining why. What are you talking about? Check it before you post. All I had to do was give my membership number to TMobile. Well, I lucked out. Called yesterday however, and got switched with all migration fees waived.

It is all because of T-Mobile. Less competition means screwed customers. No one cares why, we just care that the price difference is now marginal. It will be nice to get better more reliable indoor service.

My biggest trade off was giving up indoor service in more than a few location but that was okay bc at least at home with wifi I could always use a wifi app I have an iPhone so no T-Mobile wifi app was not a big deal considering the yearly savings on T-Mobile.

I became a big advocate for T-Mobile except when they did away with my soft cap of 10GB to 5GB and then forcing me to a simple choice plan. The unintended consequence was that the switch to simple choice forced me to use less than gig of data.

So plan did you choose on ATT when you switched? I use a lot of data usually about 10 to 15 GB a month, the other lines not so much. If youve worked for wireless carrier, youll know that this discount is manipulated by weak salesman as a tool to close a sale throught all carriers.

Yes this sucks for a lot of customers if you are that unhappy call and speak to customer loyalty. Or email executiveresponse Tmobile dot com. Been there, done that. You get the canned responses you read from leaked documents in the article.

Lets see if you are gutsy enough to follow this move ;. That position is wholly indefensible. You did bring up a good point though. It will happen I promise. All it takes is one weak link in the chain to break the connection.

Honestly, for all the hassle, misinformation by T-Mo care, and total lack of effort to keep me as a customer, it would take A LOT for me to ever leave again. It would take even more for me to leave for T-Mobile again.

Suffered through weak spots in coverage and data saturation in congested areas because of the price difference: Tired of going to conventions and community events and not able to get a connection that is saturated or weak and unreliable.

Spotty coverage and 2g speeds beyond city limits and missing out some handsets is one thing. But losing this discount is another. Time to research other alternatives but i have a feeling tmobile is still a good value, but paying more for tje same thing is not right.

Paying more for the same thing happens all the time. I never understood why people expect whatever cell plan they were on a decade ago to still be honored by their provider for the same price until forever.

Do you still make the same wage you made a decade ago? The cost for carriers have gone down in the last decade, so your argument is not apples to apples. What costs would those be?

I suppose if a carrier was providing the same network technology today that it provided a decade ago, then you could do it more cheaply. LTE networks operate at a significantly higher spectral efficiency than most advanced 3G infrastructures, reducing the cost per bit and delivering significantly more bandwidth per user.

In addition, the advent of Heterogeneous LTE networks HetNets — a mix of macro base stations with strategically located small base stations and Wi-Fi offload hotspots — is driving significantly higher bandwidth per user while enabling operators to better control CapEx and reduce OpEx.

Consumer prices have already come down a lot, too. And even that mid-range smartphone is worlds ahead of whatever candy bar you had in The problem is nobody wants a minute talk plan anymore. That is cheaper than the past.

You are comparing apples and oranges. I agree paying more for the same thing happens all the time…in certain markets. I do not think its hard to understand why some people expect their cell plan to be honored over time since that particular market has historically done just that.

Ever heard of grandfathered plans? Cell phone companies are known to practice that, not mcdonalds or gasoline stations. But they are different markets, in my opinion. If tmobile wants to increase profits, revenue, employee salaries, executive bonuses, i think they should continue to try to increase customers with uncarrier type moves, not something like this.

Besides, they did increase customers. Over 4 million in and that was before they started paying ETFs for switchers. I agree, apparently uncarrier promotions alone are not enough, therefore i think they are testing customer loyalty by doing away with these discounts, consequently raising some bills.

But to each their own. Compared to the other carriers, T-Mobile has very few corporate accounts. Maybe turning this into a benefit for corporate sales is the plan. Because often people had to do a 2 year contract extension to get that discount and some people are still under that extension, now with no discount.

What in my previous posts gave you the impression i am not bothered or upset by losing these discounts? If you are under contract and the terms are changing discount leaving you have the right to terminate the contract without penalty.

Read the small print on those inserts included with your bill, it will spell out that you have 30 days may vary on where you live to cancel your contract with no charge simply because they changed the contract.

You signing the contract, agreeing to the standard rate. The discount comes after the fact and is not contingent upon the contact. Meaning, that it can change at any time, T-Mobile in this case terminating the agreement they have with your employer.

Which T-Mobile has every right to do, just like your Employer can terminate the agreement with T-Mobile to offer their employees a discount. This happens a lot actually. You sign the contract first, discount is applied after the fact.

Untrue, I as many others stated had to sign a contract specifically to get the discount. In order to get the discount I had to agree to a 2 year agreement. For a much better network, I say take the plunge and go to Verizon.

I just noticed that also what tmobile going to say about that or just try and ignore that plan. Perhaps the big push in Tmobile was a setup for the Sprint take over. Now they might have run the company longterm.

Am I the only one that beleives the Sprint take over would have been a good? I think the Sprint and TMO need merge to be able to compete properly with the top two. And yes, TMO sees that this is no longer going to occur hence the changes we see now.

I agree it will get less uncarrier day by day…. Folks promised to keep the price war going even if they merged. TMobile has already given up on the price war. Well just my opinion. I feel that if the two merged they would be able to challenge top two via a price war.

If what has been reported is true this is a really short notice for such a dramatic change to be implemented on April T-Mobile LTE works great when it’s not congested but there were a couple of times at airports the download speed was horrible even when my phone was showing 4G LTE.

Their coverage is also not very consistent I had 0 data coverage at Orlando Convention Center…it was voice only via roaming at all times… Even worse, for people who are still on a 24 month contract, such price increase is really unfair.

I’d rather keep my old plan with MB data than subsidize people who use a lot of data. They were only profitable in Q1 but losses were piling up the other 3 quarters. This change is not a good sign.

Almost nobody chooses T-Mo for the coverage. PageRank Panda Penguin Hummingbird. In late, reports surfaced that Google was enhancing its product Google Voice Search for the next version of Android. Has anyone verified this? Twitter account complaining about it and how much you guys hate it and would leave. After being with tmobile for more then 8 years this has pushed me to leave. What costs would those be?

Per the agent I just spoke to, the account holder does not have to be the employee. LTE networks operate at a significantly higher spectral efficiency than most advanced 3G infrastructures, reducing the cost per bit and delivering significantly more bandwidth per user. Why I stayed with T-Mobile for almost 10 years despite not getting services in many places?

Does T-Mobile offer discounts to employees who work for in Florida a hospital network called Broward Health? Which T-Mobile has every right to do, just like your Employer can terminate the agreement with T-Mobile to offer their employees a discount. WiFi calling is usually pointless, Verizon is adding global texting as well, paying off the phone is the same as a contract but just implemented differently and can ultimately cost you more money if you leave early, Uncarrier is just a slogan and is meaningless without value behind it, and the spectrum purchase still leaves them with LARGE gaps in coverage compared to other carriers.
