T-Mobile Wi-Free

For a limited time, T-Mobile USA subscribers can access 6,500 T-Mobile HotSpot locations free on the weekends.

The promotion started Saturday and will last until May 28. The hours are between 12:01 a.m. Saturday and 3 a.m. Monday.

To access Wi-Fi for free, users must visit this Web site and enter their T-Mobile phone number. Within moments, the user will receive a free text message with a pass code that will allow free surfing access.

The Bellevue company says it’s all part of its “Get more from life” campaign. “See what we have to offer, and have some fun while you’re at it,” the Web site says.

It could also be called a “Get more from a campaign” campaign. T-Mobile is able to promote both Wi-Fi and text messaging in one.
