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.
