T-Mobile USA is no longer offering its low-cost 200MB data plan to new post-paid smartphone customers. The least expensive option is now a 2GB Classic Unlimited Plus plan, which costs $20 per month. The 200MB plan had cost $10 per month. According to T-Mobile, the change will not impact existing customers who already have the 200MB plan.
