Two compatible phones, the Nokia 6086 and Samsung T409, are available for $50 with a two year contract. A $50 access point will be free after rebate. T-Mobile is launching the service at a promotional rate of $10 per month for individuals and $20 for family plans. The rates will increase another $10 per month after the promotion has ended.
