Following Apple’s major iPhone 6s event yesterday, T-Mobile on Thursday made some big announcements of its own. In both a YouTube monologue and press release, company CEO John Legere introduced a new ‘Lifetime Coverage Guarantee’ and iPhone 6s program.
As its name suggests, the Lifetime Coverage Guarantee essentially ensures your happiness with T-Mobile’s network. The offer says that if at any point you aren’t completely satisfied with the service on your iPhone 6s, you’ll get a refund for up to a full month of service.
It’s official. T-Mobile has overtaken Sprint to become the third largest carrier in the United States. During its earnings call on Tuesday, Sprint told investors that it ended its most recent quarter, which ended in June, with 56.8 million customers.
That falls just shy of the 58.9 million subscribers T-Mobile finished with in its most recent quarter, which also ended in June, officially moving the Magenta-colored company into the third largest US carrier spot, behind AT&T and Verizon Wireless.
T-Mobile announced on Thursday a new prepaid plan titled Simply Prepaid that delivers unlimited 2G data, talk and text for $40 per month – along with 1GB of LTE. Like all of T-Mobile’s plans, the number four wireless carrier doesn’t require a contract – just a smartphone with a capable SIM-card.
“UnCarrier” T-Mobile CEO John Legere has posted a lengthy prediction post for 2015 – you guessed it – he’s incredibly bullish on his company for the new year. He expects things to go so well that T-Mobile will officially overtake Sprint to become the third-largest wireless company in the US sometime in 2015.
