There’s nothing more offensive and shrewd than T-Mobile’s “Never Settle” campaign which let existing Verizon subscribers to try out T-Mobile’s services – with free of charge.
This may sound as an insult but the idea of T-Mobile giving Verizon customers the ability to port their numbers to a new T-Mobile smartphone (while retaining their existing Verizon phone), is one smarter move. However, it will only be free of charge for up to 14 days. And if the subscribers wish to stay with T-Mobile, the carrier will cover Verizon’s Early Termination Fees. Does it sound a perfect deal?
For me, it’s a big YES. With T-Mobile soaring credibility, I’m pretty sure those who’ll try out would love to go on with the service and join the millions switching to the Un-carrier. Imagine how convenient it is for you that T-Mobile will pay off any of Verizon’s Early Termination Fees (ETFs) of up to $650 or outstanding device payments when they trade in their phone and get a new one with T-Mobile’s wildly popular Simple Choice plan.
But what if customer doesn’t want to switch over? Well, T-Mobile’s offer is 100% money back guarantee. It means, any fees applied during the trial will be given back to you – they’ll even cover any activation charges Verizon may impose. Here’s their official statement.
If it doesn’t work out, the customer just hands in their T-Mobile phone within 14 days, and the Un-carrier will refund any trial costs from using T-Mobile … and any service costs for starting back up with Verizon, like activation or other related fees Verizon regularly charges. The Never Settle Trial starts on May 13, and Verizon customers can sign up through May 31.
John Legere, T-Mobile’s outspoken CEO made his feelings known about Verizon, “Last week, I said we would hit right back at Verizon — I meant it. T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network is the nation’s fastest. Not faster for the price … just faster, period.”
He added, “With T-Mobile, you don’t have to settle for trickery, gimmicks and carrier BS the way you do with Verizon. I’m so confident in our kick-ass network experience that we’re footing the bill so Verizon customers can give T-Mobile a try.”
T-Mobile had launched a swerve of ads for the campaign. For those who are interested in checking them out, kindly head to T-Mobile’s website. And as for those existing Verizon subscribers interested to avail the trial, make sure to do it between May 13 and May 31.
Well, if I were you, I’ll switch just for the unlimited data. Data speeds in T-Mobile are much faster than Verizon. I seem to get decent service where I work and travel. Speaking of travel; when you’re on the go, make sure to bring a spare battery for your smartphone or a reliable USB portable charger like ChargerSticks, to enjoy browsing the web or playing mobile games.
