T-Mobile debuts Un-carrier 7.0 with Wi-Fi Unleashed

T-Mobile, on Wednesday added millions of cell phone towers to its network. Okay, not literally, but it certainly did so in figurative manner. The Un-Carrier just announced its 7.0 phase of the initiative which harnesses Wi-Fi connectivity both here on the ground and in the air.

T-Mobile customers with Wi-Fi calling and texting capabilities (pretty much all of them) can make free Wi-Fi calls to the United States inside or outside of the country. For those who don’t have a device capable of Wi-Fi calls can enroll in a special, limited time JUMP! upgrade to pick one up.

Slated to take effect on September 17, the Wi-Fi Unleashed program will see all Simple Choice customers with high speed internet and scoop up a free T-Mobile Personal CellSpot with a $25 refundable deposit. The best part in this announcement is that there are no extra apps to install or crazy configurations; simply make the calls as per normal. In essence, everyone of these CellSpots becomes a tower that gives subscribers full bars of service.

As if that we’re good enough, T-Mobile has partnered with Gogo to allow for free, unlimited texts, picture message, and visual voicemail. With roughly 75% of flights using GoGo this keeps T-Mobile customers connected in the sky, too.
