T-Mobile: Current Customers Can Keep Corporate Discount
In a partial reversal, T-Mobile plans to allow current customers to keep their corporate discount off their monthly rate plan.
However, the carrier will eliminate such discounts for new customers going forward.
“Tomorrow we will announce that current [customers] can keep their corp employee discount,” CMO Mike Sievert said in a tweet late on Tuesday.
T-Mobile had said Friday it was planning to eliminate all such discounts in order to offer one low monthly rate for all customers.
Separately, BlackBerry said late Tuesday that it plans to stop selling its devices through T-Mobile.
“BlackBerry has had a positive relationship with T-Mobile for many years,” BlackBerry CEO John Chen said in a statement. “Regretfully, at this time, our strategies are not complementary and we must act in the best interest of our BlackBerry customers. We hope to work with T-Mobile again in the future when our business strategies are aligned.”
The partners have grown increasingly distant in recent weeks, with Chen and T-Mobile CEO John Legere engaging in a war of words.
