BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — T-Mobile USA, Inc. announced the launch of T-Mobile Complete(R), a no annual contract, pay-in-advance package that provides customers with exceptional value as well as T-Mobile’s award-winning customer service and dependable national coverage. Retailing at Best Buy locations nationwide, as well as select Walmart stores, T-Mobile Complete offers a perfect solution for U.S. Hispanic wireless consumers with a choice of four handsets, access to three Even More Plus(SM) unlimited rate plans and their first month of service free with purchase of the T-Mobile Complete kit – all without an annual contract, deposit or credit check.
While credit history is needed to do almost everything in the U.S. from buying a house to purchasing a cell phone, T-Mobile provides its consumers with the flexibility of a monthly plan, with no annual contract, no deposit and no credit check required.
“T-Mobile understands the importance of flexibility and great prices, especially in this economic climate,” said Wendy Pinero-De Pencier, Vice President, Brand and Calendar Marketing, T-Mobile USA. “Everyone is looking for ways to save, and Hispanics are no different. We’re confident that T-Mobile Complete kits are a great solution for anyone looking for an affordable plan with a national carrier.”
Overall, Hispanics use cell phone technology features more than the general population. There are over 18 million Hispanic wireless subscribers, and data shows that 66 percent of Hispanics use text messaging on a daily basis, compared to only 36 percent of the general market. T-Mobile offers these consumers the perfect solution with T-Mobile Complete options for unlimited talk ($50/month); unlimited talk and text ($60/month) or unlimited talk, text and Web ($80/month).
For those customers more interested in text messaging, an option for unlimited text bundled with 1,000 Whenever Minutes(R), Unlimited Nights & Weekends and Unlimited T-Mobile-to-T-Mobile calling is also available for $50 per month. Combined with a month of service free with purchase (a value of up to $80, depending on the kit selected), this represents one of the best prepaid values in wireless.
In addition, T-Mobile Complete provides consumers with the first-ever prepaid BlackBerry(R) smartphone offered by a national carrier. Hispanics are using their mobile phones to access the Internet at almost double the rate of two years ago, rising from 18 percent in 2007 to 29 percent in 2009. The kit featuring the unlimited talk, text and Web plan for $80 per month provides these tech-savvy consumers with an affordable plan as well as a BlackBerry smartphone that allows them access to personal e-mail, a variety of messaging options and social applications to keep them connected on the go.
T-Mobile offers customers several devices to choose from when purchasing a T-Mobile Complete kit, including the Samsung t239, Samsung t229, Samsung Gravity(TM) and BlackBerry(R) Curve(TM) 8520.
T-Mobile Complete packages also make great gifts for the holidays. They include everything a customer needs to get started with their service at a price that’s hard to beat, so loved ones can stay connected without having to worry about overage charges.
T-Mobile Complete first month free offer requires purchase of device and activation on select plan. Includes monthly plan cost and $4.99 Control Charge; other charges, taxes, & fees not included. Must activate phone, SIM card and activation card together. See kit for details.
