T-Mobile to reveal UNcarrier phase 3 on October 9

T-Mobile-Logo1

As many of you know, I recently ditched my HTC EVO 4G LTE and Sprint for the LG Nexus 4 on T-Mobile. Since then, I’ve obviously become a lot more interested in the nation’s fourth largest carrier and have personally been following what the company has been up to quite closely.

For those not in the loop, T-Mobile has been attempting to turn the wireless world upside down: its UNcarrier phase 1 saw the end of subsidized phone pricing and contracts, and phase 2 saw LTE roll out to 156 million people and the introduction of the “JUMP!” program that allows users to upgrade their phones with little or no money down up to twice every year. I’ve already made my own predictions/wish list about what I hope is in phase 3, but soon no one will have to guess any longer – the carrier will announce the final UNcarrier phase next Wednesday, October 9:

So what will phase 3 entail?

I’ve long thought T-Mobile US should reduce its roaming rates around the world, especially since it is affiliated with other T-Mobile networks in other countries. It might be nice to see reduced international long distance, or even international landline dialing included, like Vonage. In any case, T-Mobile’s tweet certainly makes it seem like it will have something to do with international calling or roaming – after all, T-Mobile doesn’t want us to “miss it for the world.”

What do you think we’ll see in phase 3?

    Typo – should be “Wednesday, October 9:” not 19.

      I had it right in the headline, but not in the body – thanks for catching that!
