T-Mobile said that it is testing a $50 per month unlimited plan in San Francisco. T-Mobile is also offering a $135 credit for new customers who switch from another network operator. The $50 monthly plan will only be available to customers who've already had contracts for 22 months or longer. T-Mobile may expand the trial to other regions of the country in the coming weeks.

Clarify $50 Unlimited Plan (LOYALTY)

I Just spoke to my rep 2 mins ago and he told me this Unlimited Rate Plan is a LOYALTY program ONLY!

Meaning new customers will not be offered this plan. Also, this plan will not be in stores. It is a Customer Service plan ONLY. Meaning you HAVE to be a Loyal Customer with at least 22 months of un-interupted service and you can ONLY get this plan if you call in and ask for it.

I was told it has NOT left Cali yet and that those 2 customers I had with those bills ( & plans) were probably some form of exception.

Hope this clears up some concerns and questions.

I KINDA (sorta but not really) like this concept. There really isnt anything Current customers get to keep us as current customers (any provider). The cheapest prices are fo...

Philly Area Has It

I have had customer come to my location and SHOW me (bills) the new plan (I have seen 2 $49.99 Unlimited plans so far come out of Philly). So far we have confirmed useage in Cali and Philly. This plan is moving into effect as we speak and looks to be picking up momentum rapidly. I hope it hits my market very soon.

40m customers by the end of 2010???

Hmm, I think Tmo has the potential to reach the 40m customer mark by the end of 2010. BUT they need to get more 3G phones! ! !

I think Tmo should work with HTC to get a HTC Touch Pro2 with 1700 band.
Speaking of Tmo plan has anyone else seen this 9.99 plan for 2000 minutes online. I went to change my plan the othe other day and it was there.
well i know that the sidekick 3 is on the way with 3G on it along with the G2, getting the new memoir this month with 3G and 8 meg camera and i have heard about HTC developing a phone called the tungsten wich looks to be alot like the touch pro and th...
they need better coverage, then they should worry about their 3g, then new 3g phones.

but if they have 38 or 39 million now then 40 should be no problem by 2010
I think tmo needs to change their 3g band to something more universal.
T-mo is focusing on the 3g network actually there was a few guys from corp here 2 weeks ago and they told us that by the end of 2009 the 3g network is going to be a little over twice as big as it is now

No Comments?

Nobody got anything to say about this? A $50 Unlimited Plan? Whats unlimited? Minutes? Text? Web? All of the Above? Is this T-Mobiles answer to Simply Everything?

Right now T-Mobile offeres Unlimited Everything (-web) for $99. At %50 this could be a huge step for T-Mobile.

Also, offering $135 to jump ship? They are pretty much paying off everyones disconnection fees. Most companys charge between $150-200 to break contract. At $135, they are making the choice to change companys a lot easier.

T-Mobile has been making a lot of powerful moves lately. I hope this $50 a month is for Unlimited Minutes & Text. Add a $25 Unlimited Data Only feature to that and you have a Unlimited Everything Plan for $75 a Month. Big!

All this is fine and good but let's not forget that T-Mobile has a below average coverage in the SF Bay Area with a lot of areas having no coverage.
$50 only gets you Unlimited Voice minutes. Nothing else. It does NOT include unlimited messages, data, or anything else.
Major, major, major move by T-Mobile, if they play this game well they will be in great position for the future.

They also need more Windows Based Phones. The business/professional market is huge and they need to address the needs of this market se...

So is this anything like...

Boost Mobile that has the $50 unlimited talk, text, and data with no commitment required?
Seems like it. Except, for T-Mobile. Which means better reception, better data and easier texting then Boost. Sprint lost its flare. What they coulda done with Nextel they didnt. Now one of its prepaid services (Boost) has better plans then its main l...
