Expect good news from T-Mobile when it unveils its fourth-quarter earnings on Tuesday. The company has already said that its "uncarrier" strategy led to a nice increase in subscribers in Q4.

“Following the preliminary Q4/13 subscriber report that exceeded investor expectations by a large margin and given the continued aggression in its un-carrier strategy, we expect T-Mobile US to further gain flow share in an increasingly competitive U.S. wireless market," Canaccord Genuity analyst Greg Miller said. “Despite the volatility in its shares associated with the media speculation of a merger with Sprint, we believe the continued improvements in the fundamentals of its business bode well for a promising turnaround story that attracts investors with longer investment horizon."

T-Mobile had 869,000 postpaid net adds for the fourth quarter of 2013, Forbes noted. That was second only to Verizon Wireless (1.6 million) among the Big Four, beating AT&T's 566,000 adds.

That's now 1.5 million net adds for T-Mobile in the past two quarters, making it a much more formidable competitor.

With those numbers, T-Mobile is gaining a considerable edge on AT&T, putting the carrier 63 percent ahead AT&T's numbers for that same period.
