Uncarrier 5

Does T-Mobile have any more great carrier ideas up its sleeves? We'll find out tonight in Seattle.

T-Mobile has rapidly changed its guiding principles and in turn pushed the entire U.S. wireless industry in a positive direction with its "Uncarrier" movement, and tonight it's set to unveil the fifth iteration of the Uncarrier. Following up on previous announcements that separated phone subsidies from plan prices, killed contracts, gave you free international data, let you upgrade your phone every six months and pay your ETF for switching carriers, T-Mobile's going to have to do something great to keep us excited.

We're going to be keeping up a liveblog of the event with pictures and impressions all through the evening, so be sure to keep it locked to Android Central to see all of the latest news from T-Mobile's Uncarrier 5.0 event.

ghostyroasty says:

If T Mobile was offered here, I would jump ship in a heartbeat!

AOSPrevails says:

If T-Mo is more than 2G in this town I live in(and 40 miles around it), I would be on the $30 prepaid plan already. Instead I am stuck with AT&T Gophone for 500MB data and $10 more.

Stalonage says:

That's exactly my problem as well, only 2G =/

I'm switching my sprint note 3 over to Tmobile for a month to check service around here.

Everyone needs to rally... NO SPRINT... NO SPRINT,,,,, BAD FOR T MOBILE.... BAD

Dizfunctions says:

The only thing I can think of that would end up create a net benefit is if both T-Mobile and Sprint switched to voice over data, in which case non-4g infrastructure would be irrelevant.

Every company will go to VoLTE eventually. There is no reason not to.

illdini says:

I'd be for a merger/takeover (note: it would be by Softbank, *not* Sprint) under the following conditions:
1. Decent frequency sharing or roaming agreements with the independent regional carriers
2. Multi-band phones that work on both Sprint & T-mobile's current frequencies
3. At least a 1-year freeze on rate increases
4. John Legere is CEO of combined company

Chase D says:

Can't wait to hear the news as my Verizon contract is up in 3 weeks!

FiretrUCK2k says:

You needn't have waited. T-Mobile has been paying ETFs for switchers.

Legere is a pimp.

NoNexus says:

Let me know when they get to the part about Sprint taking them over and him taking over.

ScottJ says:

No Nexus, No Peace

Know Nexus, Know Peace

NoNexus says:

Thankfully the Nexus is soon to be dead, and that like T-Mobile going away , is a good thing.

I will say that the music thing that they just announced is a good thing...

ScottJ says:

He just took a big crack at Sprint and their Framily plan. I'm sorry. It looks like you are going to go home disappointed there fella, just like every night at the bars.

NoNexus says:

He has next to nothing to do with it. DT holds all the cards and he is only a pawn.

I won't lower myself to cheap shots...

ScottJ says:

So you think he's going to bash Sprint and announce a merger with them in the same event? You are a delusional fool.

NoNexus says:

And obviously your an idiot. I made my comment here long before he made his....

jackwagon06 says:

I'm so glad you weighed in dude.....it would have been bleak in here!

I usually am drinking while posting here.....sorry

ScottJ says:

Exactly. You thought he was going to announce a merger or sale to Sprint. You were wrong. You must be used to it.

"your[sic] an idiot"....A greater foil I could not construct myself.

Kage87Z says:

So. No android phone, no deal.

udazavlanje says:

Weird right?! And also, no mention of Google Music for unlimited data music plan

Thanks for a great live stream gentlemen!!

daleg says:

This is a great deal for me because I will use the Iphone 5 to test the network and then buy the Note 4 when it comes out. I have lousy service from Version at my house and they said I had to buy a Network Extender for $175 to get decent service because they are not going to build any towers near here. I only live 18 miles frrom Phoenix so their network SUCKS!!!

udazavlanje says:

I've been around phoenix area and had a chance to compare my phone w T-Mobile device (iPhone 5s).
Taking a loop around - 85 hwy to 8 EB to Eloy, data on T-Mobile was completely dead, while I was streaming video on my phone w a very few hiccups (switching LTE n 3g). If you have some driving to do out of town there, T-Mobile is pretty much useless.

I'm a Verizon lifer and have zero issues with my coverage. Looking at T-Mobile's website it appears the coverage gets weak as you move away from town. I don't want an i-phone. I would like to test the network though. From the sounds of it you can test drive for seven days, return the phone with no questions asked and then jump ship when you want to buy the android phone of your choice?? I'm looking at the LG G3.

daleg says:

Verizon tested my neighborhood and determined I had 7% dropped which is unacceptable. The Network Extender takes a weak signal and feeds it through your router over the internet. I have had no problems since I bought the thing.
This is the way I read it, test the network with an Iphone and return it and get what you want.
I have heard Tmobile sucks in the Phonix area so I weill just keep Verizon. I have unlimited data so I have to pay full price for a phone. Verizon is a ripoff if you are single.
I get great 4G service here, it is only the phone calls that are affected. I wosh they would impl;ement volte so I can use my internet connection for phone calls.
