After T-Mobile had attempted to woo long-time BlackBerry subscribers away in an effort to convince them to upgrade to newer devices running on competing operating systems and a subsequent reworking of the upgrade incentive to appease BlackBerry, it looks like the un-carrier network has managed to convince 50,000 BlackBerry customers to upgrade, likely to a Samsung Galaxy phone.
The program began in March and while that number may sound like a lot, not all of those who upgraded were upgrading to a new BlackBerry.
T-Mobile's promotion gave a $200 credit to those upgrading their BlackBerry to a Samsung phone while BlackBerry customers who are upgrading to a different manufacturer would only get $100 in credits.
The good news is that it appears that this promotion will continue, but with some changes.
When it began, customers would get the credits on their bill automatically. T-Mobile has since switched the program so that customers would automatically get a debit card sent to their address if they participated. However, starting August 6th, customers will have to fill out a mail-in-rebate form to participate in the promotion.
Those customers would have to visit www.t-mobile.com/promotions and use the code 'Loyalty 3Q4' to get their debit card.
Any former BlackBerry customers, especially those who are members of sister site CrackBerry.com, here who have upgraded to a Samsung? What are your thoughts? If you're a BlackBerry customer looking to switch it up, what device are you eyeing?
