T-mobile may announce a plan on Jan 8, 2014 to pay up to $350 of the early termination costs for those that switch to their service

T-Mobile is planning an initiative that would pay off subscribers’ early termination fees if they switch from a rival carrier to T-Mobile. Specifically the source said that the company is planning “a project codenamed ‘Houdini’ which will give switchers up to $350 in credit when they switch to TMO” with a particular emphasis placed “on families switching up to 5 lines regardless of contract end dates.”

Paying off customers’ early termination fees would destroy a huge barrier to wireless subscribers switching to T-Mobile. It would also go a long way toward killing off the two-year service agreements that T-Mobile scrapped as part of its first “uncarrier” initiative. T-Mobile has become a major annoyance for incumbent carriers and earlier this year it also made moves to give customers the option of upgrading their smartphones earlier and to offer free international data roaming.
