Sprint and T-Mobile Plan for a Mysterious “All Hands Day” In September


Seems there are a few rumors floating around the blogosphere of a leaked document showing T-Mobile prepping their employees for a mysterious September 24th “All Hands Day.” As to be expected, imaginations are running wild. This could either be some last minute training for the Samsung Galaxy S II (Hercules) or may have something to do with the rumored release of the iPhone 5 on T-Mo. Nobody is quite sure.

Adding even more speculation to the iPhone 5 rumor is a similar “All Hands Day” Sprint is requiring for their team. According to numerous SprintFeed tipsters, this one is scheduled for September 11th, just a few days earlier than T-Mobile’s AHD. Luckily, SprintFeed received this leaked image displaying the time frame in which employees need to train for the launch of Sprint’s upcoming Epic 4G Touch which seems to encompass that tipped September 11th date and goes up all the until the phone’s launch on the 16th.

Gee, Scoob. It seems we’ve solved the mystery of the T-Mobile and Sprint “All Hands Day.” If both these training events are in fact related, then they are nothing more than training for the Samsung Galaxy S II. Even still, I still find it odd that Sprint or T-Mobile would need to train their employees on devices featuring similar OS’s to what’s currently on the market. Go figure.

  1. iPhone, guarenteed

  2. imagine somebody jailbreaking a t-mobile iphone and using it on att? just about as stupid as doing the opposite.

  3. man i hope its the iphone 5. That would be awesome and it would save sprint. I was about to leave sprint until i herd this rumor.

    1. Save Sprint from what exactly?

      1. Seth Dean is right, Sprint needs the customers iPhone 5 will bring. So far Android devices have done little to stop Sprint’s high churn rate. And that’s due to iPhone being available on AT&T and now Verizon. Deutche Telecom has publicly stated that the lack of the iPhone in T-Mobile’s line up is hurting sales.

        iPhone 4 is the best selling phone on AT&T and now Verizon and it’s the overall best selling phone in America.

        Sales of the iPhone 5 are gonna be bananas.

  4. if tmo gets the iphone, im throwing the vibrant on craigslist and killing contract. ill go with fucking jitterbug before i deal with that shit O_O

    1. amen

  5. This definitely is for the iPhone 5.

    However, I’m surprised, as I wasn’t expecting the iPhone until October.

  6. Man I would never leave android for ios

    1. Man you have a peanut for a brain. Or may not have a brain at all!

      1. Actually that’s who I-devices are designed for.

      2. why would you say that?you love your lameass icrapple?..maybe you have a rice pudding for a seem dumb for saying that to cwalker..move on sheepherder

  7. Does sprint currently offer any phones with touchwiz 3.0? That’s what the training is for on the sprint side. I really hope the hands on events are related, that would mean that tmo is getting the hercules earlier than late October. I doubt it.

  8. The Sprint iPhone is the worst kept secret probably in modern history…

  9. BS on the iPhone. Also, in the article, you pass off the Tmo as a possible “training event” when the leak clearly states that the “All Hands” is due to an expected high volume of in-store customers.

    More than likely, the 24th will be the SGSII release.

  10. Irrational iPhone hatred is odd. I LOVE android on my Nexus One and wouldn’t want to be stuck with a cookie cutter user experience handed down from “on high,” but iPhone users LOVE their phones and they DO have a very slick, functional UI. Is this just a case of “haters gonna hate?”

  11. I have no issues with Sprint selling the iPhone 5. Wanna know why? Because that means a better carrier (More consumers), with more cash for even better phones like Verizon has, they got a powerhouse of phones.

  12. I seriously doubt they’re taking days to wrangle all of their employees together tot train for phones that are already similar to ones they sell. They’ll be training for the iPhone 5. I just wish T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II looked more like the international version.

  13. The iPhone 5 is goin to sprint.
