As pointed out by the CEO of T-Mobile John Legere, AT&T has abruptly ended its aggressive campaign to lure T-Mobile customers into the network by paying them $250 for trading in their smartphone and $200 per line. So that’s a total of $450 in savings which could be had through this promotion. AT&T clarified this move as it was reportedly a limited period offer which ended on the 31st of January. However, the CEO of T-Mobile didn’t hold back as he used Twitter to criticize the move in his usual fashion.
T-Mobile and AT&T are the only major GSM carriers in the U.S., so there’s fierce competition between the two. Knowing that T-Mobile is emerging as the customer friendly carrier, AT&T introduced its rival plans only to end it by January. However, T-Mobile’s Uncarrier 4.0 plan which was announced last month has certainly made a mark on the market. AT&T recently announced a $130 a month Family Plans (2 lines) with unlimited talk/text and 10GB of data, which has been largely successful as well.
