T-Mobile's John Legere has been shaking up the US wireless industry with his Uncarrier initiatives and as they attempt to take the third spot from Sprint before the end of they year they are offering yet another incentive for consumers. T-Mobile is encouraging current T-Mobile customers to 'throw a lifeline' to Sprint friends.

If a T-Mobile customer brings in a customer from Sprint (Verizon and AT&T are included as well) then both the new T-Mobile customer and existing T-Mobile customer will get a full year of unlimited LTE for no additional charge. If a current T-Mobile Simple Choice customer already has unlimited LTE, then they will get a $10 credit on their account for twelve months.

Sprint just recently killed off their Framily plans and launched a new shared data plan, similar to what Verizon and AT&T offer. They just recently had an employee event promoting that they are getting back into the game.

T-Mobile's current most advertised offering is a Simple Choice plan for four lines with 2.5 GB of LTE data for $100. If a T-Mobile customer on this plan can bring in a friend from Sprint then this deal gets even sweeter.
