Just a heads up…

The purpose of this website is to provide you with information about T-Mobile’s 2017 Annual Stockholder Meeting. Among other things, we discuss the company’s historical performance, the meeting agenda, including the management and stockholder proposals. We also explain how you can vote. Certain management videos contain footage from historical town halls and other events and only speak as of their dates, therefore you should refer to our most recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission about past or future financial or operational performance. This website is not intended to be a substitute for reading T-Mobile’s 2017 Proxy Statement, which includes information required by the Securities and Exchange Commission. We encourage you to read our proxy statement in full before you vote!

Communities
  • We’re committed to giving back in meaningful ways to the communities where we live and work.
    We are rallying behind the 5.6 million 16- to 24-year-olds who aren’t working or in school, and are the most vulnerable of the mobile-first generation of Americans.
    With a focus on Mobile Empowerment, we’re providing affordable internet access and devices to millions of youth to help close the “homework gap” so they can continue their educations even after the school bell has rung.
    With a focus on Job Readiness, we’re inviting thousands of teens into our stores and call centers nationwide for a ‘day in the life’ of the Un-carrier. The career insights and advice we’re sharing help them take first steps toward career success.
    Together, we’re helping the next generation leap into their futures. After all, the Uncarrier revolution is for them.
  • Our T-Mobile Foundation grants, employee giving and volunteer initiatives are all part of the action. Empowering youth. Youth are the focus of our signature Huddle Up volunteer events, which help kids from single-parent families in high-need, urban areas. For over 10 years, we’ve given thousands of hours of volunteer service to Boys & Girls Clubs, City Year, and After School All Stars to create awesome after-school spaces for kids to learn and grow.
  • Rebuilding communities after disasters. When disaster strikes, partnerships with organizations like the American Red Cross support relief and rebuilding in communities facing crisis. In addition to funding, we’re ready to respond with highly trained network support teams, tech infrastructure, and a small army of employee volunteers.
  • Promoting diversity. Few causes matter more to us than diversity and inclusion. Partners like Special Olympics, Pride organizations and True Colors help us celebrate the diversity of our employees, customers and communities.
