T-Mobile Debuts New No-Contract Plans

Article Comments  46

T-Mobile today made available new service plans that can be picked up without a contract. The entry-level plan costs $50 per month and includes unlimited domestic voice, unlimited domestic messaging, and 500MB of data with mobile hotspot included. Those who surpass their 500MB monthly data allotment are not charged overage fees; rather, their data speeds are slowed for the remainder of the billing period. Customers who want or need more data (with mobile hotspot) can purchase more data in 2GB increments. For example, $60 per month includes all the same benefits of the $50 plan, but offers 2GB of data in addition to the original 500MB (4GB costs $70, 6GB costs $80, etc., up to 12GB for $110 per month). Alternately, customers can choose unlimited voice, unlimited messaging, and unlimited data for just $70 per month, but this option only allows for 500MB of mobile hotspot. Family plans (two line or more) are structured in the same way as the single lines. Customers can then choose to pay full price for the handset associated with the plan, or an installment option. For example, adding the Samsung Galaxy S III to any of the plan options mentioned above adds $16 to the monthly cost.

2. unlimited minutes and text and hotspot and data
3. paying overtime etc.. with no finance charges.
4. NO CONTRACTS!!!
5. Corp accounts stay active.

GAME CHANGER!!!
For me, if T-Mobile would just fill in coverage in some of the no coverage areas surrounding the cities, and upgrade much of its Edge network to at least HSPA, then I would go with T-Mobile.

Message to T-Mobile subscribers

Call T-Mobile and change your plan to one of the new ones.

Smartphone mobile hotspot is free. (save $14.99) 500MB of data, also included free with the plan (save $10.00). The buckets of data now go up to over 12 Gigabytes in increments of two (2.5gb, 4.5gb, 6.5gb, 8.5gb, 10.5gb, 12.5 gb).

Mobile broadband rate plans, the majority of them, have had the prices HALVED.

There is no reason to remain on an old classic or value plan when these new plans offer MORE service, have NO contract, and cost less. I should point out, I don't make comission, but I like doing my best for the customer, and these new plans are nearly perfect.

Oh - also, the Add-a-lines (3rd, 4th, 5th line on a family plan) no longer get 500 Minutes.... they get...
