AT&T has officially ended its offer to T-Mobile customers to switch to AT&T after only a month of being active. The offer, which was started in early January to head off T-Mobile’s highly rumored UnCarrier event at CES centered around paying T-Mobile customers to switch to AT&T and giving them additional credit to make the switch.
The program let T-Mobile customers switch to AT&T and trade-in their current smartphone for a pre-paid card of up to $250. That money could be used toward AT&T products and services and that part of the offer is still being offered by the carrier. However, under the former program, T-Mobile customers could also receive an additional $200 credit per line when they transferred their wireless service to AT&T and chose an AT&T Next plan, bought a device at full retail price or activated a device they currently owned.
With the additional $200 credit for T-Mobile customers now ended, there is less of an incentive for T-Mobile customers to switch to AT&T, and as ever T-Mobile CEO John Legere took to Twitter to lambast AT&T over the move.
