Evan Blass, more commonly known as Evleaks on Twitter, has had an excellent track record over the last few years when it comes to rumors about phones and carriers. And now, he might have revealed what T-Mobile’s upcoming Uncarrier X event and service might be.
This leak actually came because the CEO of T-Mobile, John Legere, was mentioning that since the Uncarrier X event had been announced last week, rumors were flying. That led Evleaks to respond with a theory of his own.
The best part about this though is the response to that tweet John Legere had. Instead of just ignoring it or attacking Evleaks, which has happened in the past, he openly acknowledged the tweet and even invited Evan to the event on November 10th to see if his theory is true.
Knowing Evan’s track record however, it’s very probably that he’s correct. And with this move, it’ll be interesting to see how T-Mobile integrates the streaming services into the plan and if they might even be data exempt in some situations, similar to music streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, and many others. It looks, that way again, though, from more tweets before Evan’s interaction with John Legere.
So we only have about a week and a half until we find out if this is the truth or not. Are any of you T-Mobile customers and interested in this type of feature?

After stealthily being teased by CEO John Legere back in mid-September, Uncarrier version 10 will fully be unveiled by T-Mobile on November 10th. The event will be in L.A. and has the tagline, “We never hit pause.”
There are not many clues about what Uncarrier 10 could be about, but John Legere did say that Uncarrier 10 would be, “coming soon to a theater near you.” So the event could be about movies, or it could just be at a theater in Los Angeles.
So if you’re a T-Mobile customer, something new might be revealed soon. Tell us what you think could be revealed in the comments below.

T-Mobile has just announced an event for the 10th of September where the carrier will show off its plans for Uncarrier 7.0. The invite says – “This time it’s personal” which is something we’re quite keen to see. At the moment, our only guess is that T-Mobile will be looking to exploit its ongoing rivalry with AT&T which has gone on for the past couple of years now. The event will begin at 12:30PM in San Francisco.
Considering the timing, it’s more than likely that devices from the IFA event will be featured during the event. With the announcement of Uncarrier 5 and 6 back in June, the carrier announced that customers will be able to stream unlimited music on 4G LTE (provided they have a subscription).
So it’s likely that Uncarrier 7 will be something similar or perhaps more disruptive to attract more customers. The quote in the teaser makes it all the more interesting to see what the carrier has up its sleeve.
What new plans are you looking forward to from the carrier? Sound off in the comments section below.
T-Mobile is known for its customer friendly plans and aggressive marketing campaigns, mostly with its Uncarrier promotions. It seems like that’s about to go up a notch with the carrier announcing an event for the 18th of June titled Uncarrier 5.0. The event invitation reads – “We don’t play it safe and sound”, which could be a hint at some new plan the company is coming up with.
There’s not much info available on this event right now, but we think it will alleviate yet another consumer pain point which has always been T-Mobile’s primary goal. These promotions and offers have certainly helped the carrier gain quite a lot of consumers over the past several months, so we’re hoping for something big on June 18. Given T-Mobile’s track record as a flamboyant and consumer friendly carrier, the expectations will be generally very high.
What are you looking forward to from Uncarrier 5.0? Any specific plan you want T-Mobile to incorporate? Make sure you let us know in the comments below.
When T-Mobile does something like this, you need to take notice. As part of their three day initiative this week (which is Uncarrier 5) to change pain points in the wireless industry, today’s topic has to deal with tablets.
Usually when you buy a Cellular-capable tablet, you have to pay extra for that model over a Wifi-only model. For a limited time, you no longer have to pay extra to get a T-Mobile LTE tablet. So if you buy a 32 GB LTE Nexus 7, you will only pay $269 instead of $349. As long as you sign up for a minimum plan of 1 GB of LTE data.
That’s a huge discount on an LTE tablet. Of course, T-Mobile’s offer to pay your ETF still applies. So if you bought a tablet on contract on another carrier, you can break that and save a lot of money on both a data plan and the device itself. And trade-in towards a new device for the value of your old one applies too.
Oh, the data plans also have all been increased as well. For the rest of 2014, all tablet users will get 1.2 GB of LTE data for free instead of the usual 200 MB, as long as you are also a voice customer.
T-Mobile’s CEO obviously knows what he’s doing with all of these deals, as noted by his tweets today. He’s really shaken up T-Mobile and it’ll be interesting to see what he does during the rest of the year.
Now since this is only day 2 of 3 for Uncarrier 5, T-Mobile will also be announcing something tomorrow on Friday. With yesterday’s and today’s deals, we can’t wait to see what it is. But for now, take advantage of this deal starting April 12th.
