T-Mobile: Some customers can get a WiFi router and an LTE signal booster


We’ve been talking a lot lately about T-Mobile’s latest Uncarrier move, because – quite frankly – it’s totally awesome. Who wouldn’t want a $200 AC WiFi router for free? But what if you really want this router, but you also have a need for T-Mobile’s more traditional mobile booster? As it turns out, some customers can get both.

According to an official statement to TMoNew, “While we absolutely make exceptions, customers can get one Personal CellSpot per account.” I was curious as to what these exceptions were, so I called T-Mobile and asked.

Apparently, if you have multiple lines on the same account, and not all of your devices are capable of WiFi calling, you may be able to get an LTE signal booster, as well. I find myself in this situation, since I currently use a Google Nexus 5 by LG – a great phone that’s compatible with T-Mobile’s mobile network, but does not have WiFi calling baked in. Because of this, I was able to get a signal booster in addition to the WiFi router, all for free.

Your mileage may vary of course, depending on whom you’re talking to. But it’s definitely worth a call to see if you too can get both devices for free. Good luck, and let us know your results in the comments!
