Helpful  Tips:  
Below  are  some  tips  to  keep  in  mind  whether  you  are  purchasing  a  device  as  a  gift  or  for  yourself:  
                                                                                                                        -­‐Mobile  retail  associates  can  use  a  
      phone-­‐synching  device  to  seamlessly  and  effortlessly  move  your  contacts,  pictures,  calendar  appointments,  etc.  over  to  the  
      new  phone  so  it  is  set  up  and  ready  to  go!      
      If  you  make  calls  to  people  outside  the  country,  consider  getting  a  prepaid  plan  to  control  your  costs.  T-­‐Mobile  offers  a  
      variety  of  international  prepaid  plans  that  offer  great  deals  for  people  in  the  U.S.  who  want  to  stay  in  touch  with  people  
      abroad      
        Do  you  want  to  know  which  data  plan  is  best  for  your  communication  needs?  T-­‐Mobile  offers  a  data  calculator  to  help  you  
      figure  out  the  plan  you  need  based  on  your  daily  usage,  check  it  out  at  http://www.t-­‐mobile.com/Tools/MBCalculator.aspx  
      Giving  a  child  their  first  cell  phone,  especially  a  smartphone,  can  be  a  big  decision  for  a  parent.  T-­‐Mobile  offers  safety  and  
      control  applications  that  empower  families  to  keep  each  other  safe  and  responsible  by  encouraging  individual  behaviors  that  
      benefit  the  whole  family,  and  the  flexibility  to  let  parents  maintain  control  on  their  terms,  such  as:  
      o DriveSmart   Plus     Distracted  driving  is  dangerous,  especially  with  new  drivers.  DriveSmart  manages  distractions  by  
            silencing  incoming  notifications,  sending  callers  to  voicemail  and  auto  responding  to  incoming  text  messages.  With  
            DriveSmart  Plus,  you  get  automatic  driving  detection,  parental  controls  and  notification  of  cell  phone  activity  while  
            driving,  providing  additional  peace  of  mind  
      o FamilyWhere      
            location  of  any  phone  on  their  family  plan.  You  can  even  schedule  alerts  as  a  reminder  to  check  where  your  kids  are  
            during  the  day  and  view  up  to  7  days  of  location  history  
      Not  having  strong  coverage  at  places  where  you  spend  a  lot  of  time  can  be  very  frustrating.  Wireless  carriers  can  help  you  
      avoid  that  situation  by  running  a  personal  coverage  check  to  see  the  strength  of  the  network  at  your  home,  workplace,  
      school,  etc.    
      Smartphones  have  become  so  advanced  they  can  often  serve  multiple  purposes.  Several  of  T-­‐Mobile s  smartphones  have  
      premium  digital  camera  features  offering  consumers  a  viable  alternative  to  their  digital  point-­‐and-­‐shoot  cameras.  They  can  
      also  work  as  mobile  hotspots,  mobile  music  players  and  GPS  navigators.  Think  about  what  devices  you  use  most  and  
      consider  a  smartphone  that  can  eliminate  the  need  to  carry  multiple  electronics    
  
                                     Talk  To  The  Experts  
T-­‐Mobile  associates  are  experts  at  finding  the  right  devices  to  best  fit  the  needs  of  every  type  of  customer.  All  you  need  to  do  is  
go  into  a  retail  store,  explain  the  type  of  person  you  are  looking  to  buy  a  gift  for  and  how  they  would  use  their  device  and  
be  able  to  walk  out  with  the  perfect  gift  that  will  help  the  recipient  stay  connected.

   phone  right  away  and  decide  whether  or  not  they  want  to  sign  up  for  a  contract  term  later
