T-Mobile Throwing “See BlackBerry Different” Event for Employees?


I am not sure what to make of this latest rumor PocketBerry heard that T-Mobile is throwing an employee event called “See BlackBerry Different.” It could be that T-Mobile wants to train their select employees on the BlackBerry PlayBook or it could be something totally different. Could it be that one of the rumored devices like the Torch 2 or Curve Sedona will be unveiled to employees?

Here is the invite T-Mobile sent to select employees:

As one of our key BlackBerry advocates, we would like to personally invite you to an exclusive evening with BlackBerry! You have read the blogs, seen the news, and heard the rumors – now get the real scoop first hand from the source.

The event is on February 17th in New York City and Florida the 16th, so chances are it is just the PlayBook but who knows… Let us know what you think it is!

  1. “Preview the latest devices from BlackBerry”

    Dakota please!

    My dream is it’ll be announced at MWC, so it could be this T-Mobile event which is right at the tail end of when MWC occurs, could be previewing the new phones in addition to the Playbook

  2. When the 8320 launched on T-Mo with UMA, I thought it was a match made in heaven. I was super happy with T-Mo’s services and pricing. Since then their prices have increased and they stopped being the premier BlackBerry carrier, treating BlackBerry like crap. No more UMA sucks! Hope they turn their act around or I’m outta here!

    • All of the BlackBerry’s that I’ve had from tmo have uma even my Torch after I hacked it :)

      • I agree, yet it is not like they are promoting it any more as a key differentiator in the market. Also they now charge you extra when making a UMA call when out of the country, which used to be free since it was wifi anyway. For me the service is killed. I still have the home-phone line for $10, but since they don’t sell the routers anymore… you get the picture.

        • Yes I agree, I don’t see why they don’t advertise it or sell it anymore is a great service in my opinion is one of the reasons why I like the tmo BlackBerry. They were advertising sometime like it for business back at WES. Al over at CIO recently pointed out that tmobile needs to milk that service.

      • Hey Luis, Your posts have been real helpful. I followed it to a Tee and yet, My UMA does not work. Does it make a difference if my Blackberry Torch was purchsed in the Dominican Republic from the Carrier “Orange”?
        I unlocked it, then unlocked the enginieering screens, and created the UMA with the certificates you told me to download, yet no luck. Should I do anything different? Thanks for your help.

  3. I believe RIM is killing themselves with the exclusivities. If they want to continue to do well and catch up/jump ahead, they are going to have to open up to more than just the 4 big carriers. US Cellular, Cellular South, Cricket, they all have 5-6 million customers who want these new phones. That’s why people see BlackBerry’s differently. You can get almost any Android powered device on any carrier. There are probably 100’s of those devices. Only device to not have this issue is the iPhone.

  4. Cool, cool, I am a huge T-Mo fan! And BB fan obviously…

  5. I miss T-Mobile sometimes. Its cool to see them do something like this. I wish Sprint would do it.

  6. It is a good of supporting Blackberry products

  7. Why couldn’t have I been invited?

  8. It is very nice to see as TMO has been kind of overshadowed with releases, and ATT has usually gotten the release.
