1 line- Unlimited talk/text/ 1 GB data= 40 line access+50 data= 90.00
2 lines-Unlimited talk/text/1 GB of shared data= 40 line access x 2 lines + 50 data= 130.00
ATT w/ Mobile Share:
1 line- Unlimited talk/text/ 1 GB data= 45 line access + 40 data = 85.00
2 lines- Unlimited talk/text/ 1 GB shared data= 45 line access x 2 lines + 40 data= 130.00
1 line-Unlimited talk/text/data= 109.99
2 lines- 1500 minutes, unlimited msg, any mobile, unlimited data= 149.99
1 line- Unlimited talk/text/data (if they still have the unlimited data promo)- 69.99 + 40.00 data= 109.99
2 lines- Unlimited talk/text/data (if they still have the unlimited data promo) = 99.99 + 40.00 data + 40.00 data = 179.99
1 line-Unlimited talk/text/data= 50.00 line + 20.00 data= 70.00..Even if you have the 20.00 phone installment, it would be 90.00, until you pay off your phone (which can be done early)
2 lines- Unlimited talk/text/data= 80.00 both lines + 40.00 data= 120. Even if you had two 20.00 phone installments, it would be 160.00, until you pay off your phone (which can be done early)
For T-Mobile, once the phones are paid off, the plan goes down. However, with the model that the others are using, the phone subsidy is hidden in the price and never goes away.
In addition, with T-Mo, there is not a contract, even though some claim that the phone installment is like a contract. However, that is not really true. One can always pay off their remaining phone balance early, which would end the phone installment and commitment of staying.
Now if someone says, T-Mobile's coverage is just not good enough where I live, or I get a corporate discount with such and such, I completely understand. But to just claim that T-Mo is more expensive due to having an optional phone installment, is just not examining the facts. For me, if I went with T-Mo, I would just buy the phone outright cheaper online somewhere, and use T-Mo without phone installments or of course a contract.
