    T-Mobile CEO John Legere today hosted an Un-carrier 11 event, where he announced T-Mobile's latest customer perks, which include a new app that offers weekly freebies, customer stock options, and free in-flight Wi-Fi on domestic flights.

    T-Mobile is releasing a new T-Mobile Tuesdays app, available now, with freebies available every Tuesday. Starting tomorrow, T-Mobile customers can get perks like food, movie tickets, ride-sharing credits, and more. Some of T-Mobile's partners include Domino's Pizza and Wendy's.

    Tomorrow, all T-Mobile customers will be able to get free frosties and a ticket to the upcoming movie Warcraft. T-Mobile Tuesdays will also include weekly giveaways for trips, with tomorrow's raffle consisting of a Warcraft viewing party with a party bus that can accommodate 40 friends. Extra rewards come from sharing on social networks.


    T-Mobile is also giving a share of T-Mobile stock to every primary account holder and customers who switch to T-Mobile from another carrier. For every customer who brings another customer to T-Mobile, T-Mobile will offer an additional share. Customers can receive up to 100 shares of T-Mobile stock per year. Customers who have been with T-Mobile for more than 5 years will get two shares of stock per referral.

    Customers can claim their share starting tomorrow through the T-Mobile Tuesdays app, which will walk customers through the brokerage process.

    T-Mobile's final announcement brings a full hour of free GoGo Wi-Fi to T-Mobile customers for every domestic flight they're on, allowing customers to use Google Hangouts, Viber, WhatsApp, and iMessage.

    Over the course of the last two years, T-Mobile has aimed to disrupt traditional mobile service with its 11 "Un-carrier" initiatives.

    The company began with uncoupling device costs from service costs in 2013, and then went on to offer several additional incentives to encourage customers to switch to the carrier, including paying early termination fees, offering a JUMP! upgrade plan, unlimited texting and 2G data in 100 countries, free streaming music from Spotify, Rdio, iTunes Radio, and Pandora, one week free trials to test the T-Mobile service, Wi-Fi calling, data rollovers, low-cost plans for businesses, and free "Binge-On" video and music streaming.

    Giving away stock shares to customers for referrals, very interesting! Wish they had more towers in rural area, I would go back to them again for sure.

    So the app sounds like it's similar in many respects to O2's Priority app that's been around since at least 2012…

    I've heard their network has gotten better around here. Just as I've noticed Verizon's take a dip. Might be time to switch.

    The Verizon iPhone SE should work on t-mobile, right? I think just Sprint is unique on the SE....

    Correct. Sprint just has to be different (in all the wrong ways) :D.

    here and there but not over there
    Guess I switched a month too early from ATT to T-Mobile .... no shares for me :-( .... but I happily take all the other free stuff (on top of the money I save anyway through T-Mobile)

    ... and YES, I have good reception wherever I go (and YES I am aware there are areas that don't have good reception with T-Mobile ... but even with ATT I found spots where there was no reception, probably less the T-Mobile, but still)

    Except it's really not. O2 Priority gives you discounts. T-Mobile Tuesdays gives you free pizza (Dominos), free movie ticket, and free ice cream. Every single Tuesday. And loads of other things.

    Completely free. No discount. No 'buy one, get one free'. No 'get an extra topping'. Completely free.

    That's a big difference.

    Giving customers stock options? Very interesting move.

    I'll join in with the other commenters in saying I've had a great experience on T-Mobile. Coverage and data speeds have been excellent for me here in southern California (on iPhone 6s). And all the perks certainly help too - music freedom and binge on are awesome.

    Home is everywhere and nowhere.
    Actually there is no such thing as free, it's been calculated into your monthly bill. :p

    I have a T-Mobile voice plan from
    An mvno and no T-Mobile account so I don't think I'll get either offer. I get all the binge on benefits from this mvno

    I have a T-Mobile post paid iPad account that belongs to me. But the stock option requires a voice plan.

    I have wanted to jump to TMob for a while, but network coverage and strength has always been a concern. I am less worried about coverage in rural areas. I live in the city and really do not go rural very often. Has Tmob improved at least to the ATT level (which is what I am on)? If so, I may switch.

    This is either desperation or a new business model. Don't know which yet.

    Wish they would expand their rural coverage. It is currently a joke.

    Well yeah, but it's not additional to the bill. They look at the profit margins and figure that they can afford to do it. It's still ballsy and very 'uncarrier'.

    With additional prizes for 'gloating' and for referrals, this is frankly a massively smart move to attract new customers, and to increase brand loyalty of existing customers.

    Not only would it work good on T-Mobile. Your iPhone is a band 12 device. Which will work in all the band 12 rural areas that T-Mobile is now covering

    The iPad Pro 9 and the 6s and 6s plus are the only other Apple devices that have band 12

    Sprint requires the sprint model.

    I switched from ATT and couldn't be happier. I feel so liberated I forgot what it felt like. I may have lost my unlimited plan and heavy FAN discount but I'm essentially paying the same and getting a lot more value. Number porting took about 15 minutes.

    Here is a speed test from an iPhone 6.


    With AT&T on the same phone I was getting between 2-4mbs.

    The hour free GoGo is great. Even on a long flight I can catch up on emails, etc. if the tablet plans offer it I would add my iPad.

    The free international coverage has been a real cost saver. Oddly enough, even though they limit it 2G I get 3G coverage where I've been. No more buying SIMs and time/data, instead I get texts and emails and can take or make calls at my US number cheaply. I still Skype for long calls but don't miss important business calls.

    All this for about half of what ATT charged and my coverage is as good or better than ATT for where I travel. I'm fortunate to have a work BB on ATT if T mobile doesn't have coverage but haven't had to use it; now when work makes the planned switch to the iPhone I'll be able to ditch the BB horrible interface.
