BELLEVUE, Wash. -- January 24, 2013

T-Mobile USA, Inc. today announced two new B2B solutions to help businesses
manage their wireless telecommunications investments. In a November 2012
survey^1 by Gerson Lehrman Group, 89 percent of CIO respondents said that
reducing overall wireless costs was a top challenge for 2013. The new T-Mobile
Office Connect™ unified communications solution and T-Mobile Mobile Device
Payment Solution (MDPS) directly address this challenge and provide compelling
and unique alternatives to industry solutions to satisfy unmet customer needs.

“Today, mobile devices are critical extensions of an organization’s business
infrastructure. Therefore, making and protecting strategic mobile investments
are more pivotal than ever before,” said Frank Sickinger, T-Mobile’s recently
confirmed Senior Vice President of B2B. “Our new unified communications and
equipment financing solutions demonstrate T-Mobile’s commitment, as the
‘Un-Carrier’, to challenge the status quo for our B2B customers.”

The T-Mobile Office Connect solution is integrated into T-Mobile’s nationwide
4G network and streamlines accessibility and improves responsiveness as it
extends desk phone capabilities to mobile phones. As such, employees have only
one phone number and a single voicemail box to manage, allowing for fewer
missed calls and smoother transitions between mobile and desk phone transfers.

For cost savings, the T-Mobile Office Connect solution allows companies to
route international calls using the least expensive option and have mobile
long-distance calls billed at business rates. Furthermore, the solution
minimizes the need for capital investments such as additional desk phones, PBX
upgrades, and software licenses.

With its new Mobile Device Payment Solution (MDPS), T-Mobile gives businesses
the ability to finance the cost of devices over time at competitive rates and
at no interest based upon credit approval. Qualified Corporate Liable (CL)
customers are able to reserve capital and finance their upfront device costs
through CFS, a third-party lender specializing in commercial financing focused
on wireless solutions.

“Many businesses delay wireless equipment purchases and upgrades because they
want to avoid the one-time, upfront costs,” said Pam Poledouris, Vice
President of Marketing at CFS. “The new Mobile Device Payment Solution not
only gives corporate customers flexibility and better cost control, it also
frees them to take advantage of the latest wireless devices to increase
business productivity and profits.”

Office Connect is now available nationwide via T-Mobile’s B2B sales force.
