T-Mobile Supports The Four Day Work Week For Their Customers

from the the-weekend-begins-Thursday-night dept

It's no surprise that the various wireless carriers are going to be offering all sorts of deals to keep their customers once wireless number portability goes into effect next month. Already, people are seeing signs of this as the carriers are sweetening their offers. I received a phone call last week from my wireless carrier offering all sorts of discounts if I agreed to a new one-year contract. Now, T-Mobile is making an effort to keep customers by extending their "unlimited weekend minutes". Suddenly, it seems that the weekend really does begin Thursday evening if you're a T-Mobile customer. According to T-Mobile, Friday is now included in their weekend minute plans. Of course, what's odd is that they're not automatically extending this to customers, but only offering it to those who call. I imagine that this is one of the carrots they'll dangle in front of those who are trying to switch - and, as such, probably won't be all that enticing.

    Yes, but...

    Why not offer them the choice proactively?

    Really...

    I want to go full cellular and kill the land line, I really do. T-Mobile's plan prices keep me hooked, but their signal strength in our hood is abysmal. This article set my out to looking for another alternative. Here is a link to whoever it may benefit.

    Ok, think what you want, but my posting habits here speak otherwise... I prefer to be mis-represented accurately.

    "once wireless number portability goes into effect next week"

    I think you meant next month. November 24.
