I was invited to the T-Mobile RDU Holiday Tweet Up by @CarolinaMama who was hosting this event courtesy of T-Mobile. I arrived at T-Mobile in Raleigh to be greeted and welcomed by CarolinaMama, T-Mobile staff and immediately started participating in the festivities. I checked in on Foursquare to let all my friends know what I was up to, I was also on twitter using the hashtag(s) #TMobileHoliday #RDU while tweeting. There were a few games going on that gave us several chances to win one of five phones that were being given away that night, and there was also a choice between two models The myTouch and The myTouchQ . My favorite game was playing on the myTouch Android phone to see who could carry out certain tasks the fastest that were given by a T-Mobile Staff Member from downloading certain apps, signing into Facebook and posting on your wall, taking a picture, just to name a few. I got to really learn the myTouch and navigate my way around that particular model and I really liked it.
I learned that T-Mobile covers 96% of Americans and is the largest 4G network. You can also set your phone up to talk and access unlimited data with Wi-Fi calling at no additional costs ANDâ€¦ no other national carrier offers this. Nice! This is great for people who live in dead zones or get low signals in their home. I know Iâ€™m not the only one whoâ€™s lived in the boondocks and have dropped calls. What about having to leave the house and walk around outside to get a better signal and talk on the phone. Lol! Should we really have to do that? It wouldnâ€™t be so bad if I had a house phone but, I havenâ€™t had a land line in YEARS! Iâ€™m always on the GO and a mobile phone works better for me. I was so impressed by what T-Mobile offers Iâ€™m seriously considering breaking my contract with my current provider and switching over. I currently have a BlackBerry Torch and fell in love with the Samsung Galaxy S II as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1. Iâ€™ll have to add those two items to my holiday wish list and see if they mysteriously show up under my Christmas tree.
I was one of the lucky winners of the myTouch which works out for my daughter, sheâ€™s wanted an Android forever and that will be one of her Christmas Treats. Thanks to Carolina Mama and T-Mobile! The T-Mobile Holiday event was GREAT. I got to see some of my local blogging friends and play catch up! The games were fun, food was awesome; the staff was very pleasant and informative about the products offered by T-Mobile. We also got tips for surviving the holidays along with some cool T-Mobile swag. Iâ€™m going to give a couple of lucky winners some T-Mobile Surviving the holidayâ€™s Swag!
