T-Mobile Phasing Out Phone Subsidies

Article Comments  56  

Dec 6, 2012, 4:31 PM   by Rich Brome

The CEO of T-Mobile USA today announced that the company plans in 2013 to stop offering traditional service plans that include a subsidy to cover the cost of the cell phone. Instead, the company will only offer its "Value" plans, which are typically cheaper than traditional postpaid monthly plans offered by other carriers. Customers can still get a phone for a low-up front price and pay over time with a monthly installment plan. Unlike a traditional phone subsidy, the installment plan ends automatically when the phone is paid off. The Value plans make the phone and service costs separate and transparent.
