T-Mobile: Father’s Day gift or scam?

A news story has surfaced from T-Mobile that they are offering a special Father’s Day gift- free Unlocked Cell-Phones. T-Mobile is planning on launching a commercial on June 19 to further quell any rumors, so we can then know whether this is true or not. Although this story has yet to be confirmed by T-Mobile, from the looks of it, it might actually happen according to a copy of the commercial script recently obtained. In the commercial, a voice over says, “Ladies and gentlemen, mark your calendar as this Saturday, starting from 8 a.m. T-Mobile is now planning on launching an unprecedented act of giving away all phones in its stores absolutely free. T-Mobile has taken another initiative in customer satisfaction by ensuring that families are put first.”

While this is a great promotional offer by T-Mobile, do not get your hopes up too high as chances are that you will not like the range of mobiles on offer. For instance, right now the best mobile that is available in the T-Mobile stores is the myTouch 3G Slide, which just cannot compare with other phones available from other carriers currently in the market.  Another phone is the HTC HD2 which is great should you want to use it to watch movies, but the operating system of Windows Mobile 6.5 leaves a lot to be desired. On the other hand, if you are currently searching for any new unlocked mobile phone, then this T-Mobile offer would do well for you.

Be advised that this offer is still not yet fully confirmed, so do not get your hopes up on getting a free phone. At the same time, there are chances this offer can fall under a particular subscription plan. If you have been keeping up to date with promotional plans recently been offered by different mobile carriers, you will realize that more often than not, promotion like this would involve users having to enter a new, two year contract with the carrier company.

    It's true , T-mobile had this father's day sale today, but its more of a old trick to get people in the door, then its just the same. The smartphones and any phone deserving you paying for an extra line, are all "free" after rebates of up to $100 !!! yeah right is free...
