Un-carrier 8.0: A morning fire-side chat with John Legere on December 16

T-Mobile is preparing to shake things up again in the US wireless industry, and this time they're doing it by inviting you to watch a stream of… a fireside chat with CEO John Legere and Yahoo Tech's David Pogue. What exactly they're doing tomorrow, we're not sure, but T-Mobile's teasing that it's "so big [they] had to keep it under wraps."

Everything's scheduled to go down tomorrow, December 16th, at 10:30am Eastern time (7:30 Pacific). Because if there's any time to have a fireside chat, it's before lunch.

The whole affair, whatever it is, will be streamed live on T-Mobile's website (check the source link below), should you care to tune in. Or you can just come back here tomorrow and find out for yourself what T-Mobile has in store. Previous "Un-Carrier" announcements have brought features like free music streaming, in-flight texting, and the first ETF pay-off plans.

  • Fireside chat, campfire, camping, rural. Better coverage outside of city centers?
  • I wish TM was good around the Tucson area, my coworkers say the coverage sucks.
  • Fireside chat so good they're keeping it under wraps. What, TMo is finally going to adequately promote Windows phones and offer a worthy 925 successor--in stores?
  • Lol, nope. Then it would be T-Mobile and Microsoft by the Fireplace.
    Yahoo is irrelevant in my universe, so it's gonna be interesting tomorrow.
  • Tmobile and Apple after having too much of an affair right now for us to actually get any better phones.
  • Well, in an interview with Re/Code (I believe), John Legere stated he had to go down in his knees and beg Apple to bring the iPhone to T-Mobile. Who know what else he did to make it happen. I highly doubt he'll do that to Nadella to get a high-end Windows (Phone) to T-Mobile.
  • He was on his knees, so not hard to imagine what else he did.
  • I've never cared for press conferences like this, but John Legere is so entertaining to watch, I'll definitely be tuning in.
  • Lol I thought that guy was the drummer from Metallica.
  • It's his brother.  
  • Ahh right a bit of money on the side always helps.
  • Wonder if they can be asked about the Lumia 830/35 for T-Mobile?
  • Yahoo really there not the most amazing news outlet there about the last id read cause they've got a bunch of tools working for them
  • Maybe they will announce they are becoming an ATT MVNO so they can provide better coverage. :)
  • Funny... Really
  • After many years with T-Mobile I think I moving to republic wireless... Any idea how good/bad they are ?
  • free phones for new customers
  • You'd think Tmo & MS would be good partners considering they're on the same vicinity!
