T-Mobile has free data and calls for customers visiting Brazil for the Olympics
If you happen to be a T-Mobile customer in the US and planning to visit Brazil for the Olympic Games, then the last thing you need to worry about is your phone bill. The self-proclaimed “Un-carrier” has announced that it would provide free unlimited high-speed data, free calls back to the US, and free worldwide texting to all its Simple Choice postpaid subscribers wherever they roam across Brazil for the entire month of August.
And if you’ve always felt a bit jealous about the amount of money that athletes make from endorsements, there’s more heartburn in store for you. Along with providing free data and calls, T-Mobile will also give a free Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge phone and a free Samsung Gear 360 camera to family members of US athletes participating in the summer games in Brazil through October. T-Mobile apparently wants them to capture and share every amazing moment of the games without having to worry about racking up a huge phone bill.
If you’re already subscribed to T-Mobile’s Simple Choice postpaid plan, then you don’t need to do anything to activate the offer as the benefits will automatically become available as soon as you land in Brazil. “Get off the plane in Rio and your phone just works at absolutely no additional cost,” T-Mobile said.
