The next phase for T-Mobile and its Un-carrier strategy will be revealed in less than two weeks. The carrier sent out invites for an event taking place on March 18 at 1:00PM EST, saying that “this one’s a real piece of work.” There are actual hints included with the invite, but the use of “work” could indicate something relating to business consumers. That is unlikely, though, because T-Mobile really enjoys rallying ordinary consumers.

We will just have to wait and see what John Legere & Co. have coming on March 18.

It’s rumored to work with both Sprint and T-Mobile as in automatically switching to the best available network along with Wi-Fi. It appears that Google and Motorola were planning on this when building the phone. Motorola already has similar experience with Republic Wireless’ feature of auto-switching between Wi-Fi and Sprint’s network when Wi-Fi isn’t available.
