T-Mobile offers BlackBerry users a $100 credit toward any device

41 sec read

T-Mobile head honcho John Legere’s assuring its BlackBerry-toting subscribers they’ve got nothing to worry about despite the companies’ falling out. But, just in case they are worried, or just want to try other platforms, he’s also offering them a $100 credit toward any device. Legere made the announcement in an open letter, where he also reminded folks they can also open a new T-Mobile line for a BlackBerry if they bring their own unlocked device.

T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere said Thursday he was disappointed with BlackBerry’s decision this week to split with the carrier, and offered credits to hold on to dedicated BlackBerry users among its customers. The Canadian smartphone maker said earlier this week it will not renew the license of T-Mobile US to sell its products when it expires on April 25. The decision is regarded as a fallout of T-Mobile’s email in February to BlackBerry customers, promoting Apple’s iPhone 5s as an alternative to BlackBerry smartphones. After BlackBerry CEO John Chen described the iPhone 5s marketing promotion as a “clearly inappropriate and ill-conceived” move, the fourth-largest carrier in the U.S. said it would continue to support BlackBerry products.
