T-Mobile to Pay ETFs for Families Willing to Switch

The operator will announce its UnCarrier part 4 program today

Today, wireless carrier T-Mobile is set to reveal more offerings for its users, and rumor has it that the company might unveil something that will counter AT&T’s latest deal for T-Mobile customers interested in making a switch.

According to a recent article on droid-life, the company might be set to announce plans to pay for “your family’s termination fees when you trade in your devices.”

The T-Mobile UnCarrier part 4 program will be announced during a press event held at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, and it has been long rumored to include the aforementioned move.

Not all the details on this deal have been provided as of now, but it seems that the operator is determined to pay Early Termination Fees (ETF) from users’ previous carrier, as long as they trade in their current devices, sign up for its service, and grab a new smartphone.

Basically, this is a move similar to the one announced by AT&T a few weeks ago. This carrier was willing to provide users with up to $450 credit as long as they switched to its network and traded their existing phones.

The deal is not as straightforward as it might seem, as users would also have to sign up for AT&T’s Next program, in addition to trading in their handsets.

According to droid-life, T-Mobile would pay up to $350 per family as long as they have at least 3 lines, yet no official confirmation on the matter has been provided as of now.

However, the wireless carrier is set to kick off the aforementioned UnCarrier part 4 press event in a few hours, at 12:30PM Pacific Time.

All the needed details on this should be announced there, and it remains to be seen whether the rumor above will pan out or not. Keep an eye on this space for additional info on T-Mobile’s plans.
