GoSmart Mobile partners with Facebook to offer unlimited Facebook access without data plan

banner_facebookFor a long time, we’ve been able to get certain phones for free, provided we agree to a binding two-year contract. T-Mobile is taking free stuff to a new level this time, offering free data! Free data as long as you are trying to use Facebook, or Facebook services. That’s right, users of T-Mobile’s GoSmart prepaid plans (which don’t have data included in the first place), will be able to access Facebook through their browsers or through the app for free without having to pay for a separate data plan.

We haven’t really seen something like this before, and it’s interesting to see what kinds of deals could spring off of this in the future. You can check out the full press release past the break.

T-Mobile’s GoSmart prepaid service to launch in February

We already received official confirmation of the new T-Mobile GoSmart prepaid service last last year, and it looks like it will launch in February. It’s already available in some test markets and there will be three price points:

  • $30 per month for unlimited voice and texting
  • $35 per month for unlimited voice, texting and 2G Web service
  • $45 per month for unlimited voice, texting and “high-speed” Web service (5GB of data at “high-speed” then slowed to 2G speeds)

T-Mobile confirms in-house GoSmart Mobile prepaid service to launch next year

After recent leaks outed T-Mobile’s plans to unleash its own dedicated prepaid service, the carrier officially shed the curtains of secrecy and revealed its low-cost GoSmart Mobile network. Ole’ Magenta announced today that it has already begun trialing the network, offering a selection of three prepaid-only plans. $30 per month will get you unlimited calling and texting. Throw in an extra $5 and you’ll also get unlimited 2G data, while faster 3G speeds will set you back $45. Unfortunately, users with the 3G data plan will still have their speeds throttled after 5GB, similar to T-Mobile’s own offerings.

It remains unclear as to how T-Mobile plans to balance its prepaid network with newly acquired MetroPCS, though the carrier will have plenty of time to figure it out considering GoSmart Mobile isn’t slated to make its nationwide launch until 2013.
