T-Mobile Uncarrier Value Plans outed and detailed


If you’ve been keeping an eye on T-Mobile’s new Uncarrier Value Plans that are are likely to be unveiled on the 26th, you’re in for a treat, as we’ve got a few more details about how the plans are going to work. Like with the other leaked info we’ve seen, unlimited talking and texting is the centerpiece of these plans, with different amounts of data being the part that you’re charged more for. The base plan starts at $60 with free 500 MB of data, or you can go up to 12 GB for $130 per month, tethering included. For $90 a month, you get unlimited talk, text, and data, but no tethering. The tethering plans can be added on individually to the unlimited plan in 500 MB, 2.5 GB, or 4.5 GB bundles.

They are also offering family plans rivaling those of the bigger wireless carriers, with $160 getting you unlimited everything for two phones. (Add $50 for each line after that for unlimited data) It’s fairly competitive pricing that’s sure to keep T-Mobile relevant in the near future.

We also have some info at how T-Mobile will be marketing these plans. They’re going to be pushing four big unservices they’re offering; uncongested, unbeatable, unlimited, and unrestricted. On paper, this all looks like a great idea, but as we all know they’re going to be dropping carrier subsidies on phones in the process of moving to these plans. It’s going to be interesting to see if the general public reacts positively to that kind of change.

    Replace your EDGE network with at least HSPA+ 4G. Please. I’m sick of driving hours on major interstates with nothing but excruciatingly slow EDGE that can’t retrieve emails with one page attachments.

    I pay $70 a month for prepaid unlimited talk, text, and data now.
    I wonder if they will force me to pay $90 for their new unlimited data plan??
    If they do, I’m going to be SUPER pissed.

      For $90 a month you can have a plan with AT&T and LTE and HSPA+ 4G everywhere.

    I pay $49/mo for unlimited voice, text, data (4gigs before throttle) on MVNO Solavei and so wish they would complete the refarming in St. Louis.

    For $90 a month, you get unlimited talk, text, and data, but no tethering. How wonderful is it?

      That price is wrong. For T-Mobile it’s unlimited everything, calls, text, and data, no throttle, caps, nothing, for $70. If you want 2gb then it’s $60 and you actually get 2.5gb because they give you 500mb of free tether. If you don’t want any data then it’s $50 for unlimited calls, text and 500mb of data.
