Bellevue-Based T-Mobile Plans All-Star Give Away as Some US Customers Can Now Use T-Mobile Phones in Canada and MexicoAs the first ever Presenting Sponsor of the MLB All-Star Game, T-Mobile is stepping things up with an epic fan giveaway. To celebrate the Un-carrier’s latest industry-rattling move – ‘Mobile without Borders,’ giving Simple Choice™ customers mobile calling, texting and 4G LTE coverage in three countries (the US, Mexico & Canada) with just one rate plan, T-Mobile will give $5 million in travel to Mexico or Canada to 10,000 eligible fans if there’s a 3-for-1 homer (three-run home run) during the All-Star Game.
Fans can enter for a chance to win by simply tweeting their prediction for which player will hit a 3-for-1 home run during the All-Star Game with the hashtags #3for1HomeRun and #sweepstakes. And, when a player hits a 3-for-1 homer, 10,000 fans who’ve tweeted predictions will be selected at random to win a $500 travel voucher towards travel to Mexico or Canada. That’s a lot of margaritas and/or poutine!
“Yesterday we broke down borders for US wireless customers and gave them the freedom to use their phones in Mexico and Canada – just like in the US. The Un-carrier is the 1st , and only place consumers can get 3 countries under 1 plan at no extra cost.” Said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “Now we’re making 3-for-1 count in a big way during the MLB All-Star Game. Any 3 for 1 homerun hit will give 10K fans free travel to Mexico or Canada. It’s all part of Un-carrier Amped!

All-Star Week Un-carrier-Style
This #3for1HomeRun celebration is just the latest move in T-Mobile’s on-going commitment to Major League Baseball and to All-Star Week. In Cincinnati this morning, the Un-carrier opened T-Mobile All-Star FanFest where, for the third year, T-Mobile customers are enjoying a myriad perks and benefits simply showing their T-Mobile phone. T-Mobile customers at FanFest get access to exclusive JUMP!™ lanes to avoid lines at the main entrance. There will also be player appearances during FanFest and in local T-Mobile retail stores for customers to get autographs and meet and greet some of their favorite players.
Starting today through July 14th, T-Mobile has lined up one-of-a-kind experiences, including:
- The opportunity to meet favorite players and legends—including Billy Hamilton of the Cincinnati Reds and Dee Gordon of the Miami Marlins— on the T-Mobile Diamond in the Duke Energy Convention Center and in T-Mobile retail stores around Cincinnati.
- The chance to get a free peanuts and Cracker Jack® at the game if you can beat America’s Fastest 4G LTE network (not possible!). The Un-carrier’s so confident in its Data Strong™ network that we will buy your snacks if you win in speed tests at Great American Ballpark Sunday through Tuesday. You’ll get a $10 concession voucher just for participating!
- Mobile charging stations throughout FanFest and Great American Ball Park to ensure fans don’t miss a moment of this incredible week.
- T-Mobile customers also get free access to the hugely popular MLB.com At Bat app and its subscription features for the 2015 MLB season ($19.99 value).
