T-Mobile is making it easier and a better deal to switch service to them, and introducing new plans. The new Go5G and Go5G Plus plans include a new phone up front (up to $830) with trade-in (up to six years old), and a phone upgrade every two years. Baked into both plans is a price lock guarantee, and the Go5G Plus plan comes with a promise that new and existing customers will always get the same phone deals. T-Mobile is making it easier to switch to its network by paying off existing phones — even if locked (for a limited time) — or contract termination fees, and customers are still eligible for the free new phone. T-Mobile's "Go Back Guarantee" gives new customers 30 days to change their mind, in which case customers get $50/line to cover switch-back costs. The new Go5G and Go5G Plus plans are very similar to the company's existing Magenta and Magenta Max plans, respectively, which will continue to be available. The difference is that the Go5G plans are an additional $5/line/month, and include an extra 10 GB of hotspot data. Other plan features are identical, such as unlimited premium data on the higher-end plan and 100 GB premium data on the cheaper plan. T-Mobile is also introducing a cheaper version of its Essentials plan called Essentials Savings. This offer is for a limited time but also includes a price lock guarantee. Essentials Savings includes everything the standard Essentials plan includes, such as 50 GB of premium data, but is $10/month cheaper for one or two lines, or $5/month cheaper for four lines. Because it doesn't offer a third line free like the standard Essentials plan, the price is the same for three lines.

Thankfully T-mobile has what to choose from.
Scammy New Plans
A new customer should receive a greater discount than existing customers. Its the cost of doing business. Many times, to convert a customers from at&t or Verizon, T-Mobile will make zero profit over the newly acquired customer's first few years. Unfortunately, while Liberals everywhere want the same deal as new customers, it would mean that the mobile company would make no money or lose money. Businesses are in business to support the shareholders, and actually turn a profit.
