Hello, everyone! Welcome to CNET's live blog of T-Mobile's CES press conference!
Who's excited to see what the "uncarrier" has in store?
The main speaker, of course, will be CEO John Legere. And the rumored topics include family plans and an offer where T-Mobile will pay your early termination free from another carrier.

Legere has been quite the loose cannon ever since he arrived at T-Mobile so he always makes for a good show. Expect him to get in more than a few swipes at AT&T.
Note that the press conference begins at 12:30pm.
@Nathan: You have a point, T-Mobile has been pulling a lot of surprises over the last year.
Remember that two years go at CES, AT&T had just abandoned its quest to buy T-Mobile.
@Josh More coverage would be great. I spend a lot of time in Sonoma County, Calif. and coverage from most carriers (T-Mobile indluded) is spotty.
Hey all, Roger Cheng, executive editor for CNET News, here at the T-Mobile conference. They finally let us in!
Fittingly, Macklemore is playing.
Sorry all, no AT&T folks are here. Too bad. Missed opportunity.
So we're in a smallish conference room at the Venetian in Vegas.
Hello to Roger! James Martin will be bringing us photos.
The carpet is magenta (pink), with black curtains all around us.
On the sides are photos of its prior Uncarrier campaign, 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0.
2013 was a busy year for T-Mobile. It killed contracts, offered early upgrades, and gave away free international roaming data to its customers.
It also offered free data to customers who purchased a tablet through T-Mobile (although you have to purchase the tablet outright or sign up for a plan).
Webcast link at the top of the page. But please stay with us for Roger's expert commentary and James's awesome photos.
The rumor is T-Mobile will be offering to buy out the ETFs of whole family plans.
This comes a day after Sprint unveiled its "Framily" family plans, which saves people money as they add more people to the plan.
