Remember that limited time promotion where AT&T would pay T-Mobile customers up to $450 switch wireless providers? It’s done. Over. You missed it.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the deal expired on January 31, less than one month after commencing. While AT&T initially did say it would be a limited-time promo, we had hoped for something a little longer than a couple of weeks.

As to be expected, T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere was quick to add his own perspective on the situation.

AT&T, for it’s part, did unveil new shared data plan this week, kicking off lower pricing for the 10GB and higher options. As for T-Mobile, yes, they are still doling out up to $650 per line to get customers to break their contracts.
