Even More Plus Unlimited Plan Canceled

Unfortunately there is some bad news for Even More Plus customers this afternoon as we just received word that the EM+ Unlimited Plan scheduled for launch at $59.99 has been canceled. For reasons unknown T-Mobile has decided not to offer the plan at this time. It was rumored to be a *very* quiet launch for the EM+ plan and as it turns out, it’s one of those things that never materialized from rumor (even so T-Mobile announced it in a press release) to reality.

In any event, the Even More plan launched this morning and is ripe for the taking!

    Sounds like an AT&T executive decided to thwart it.

    • whosaidwhat

      I don’t think it has anything to do with AT&T…They’ve been talking about getting rid of the even more plus plans for some time now. They even pulled it from t-mobile a couple of months ago.

      • Petesempra

        Your right T-Mobile can’t even speak to At&t.

  • MattMJB0188

    I successfully got this plan this morning so now what? Do I keep it? I hope nothing will get messed up??

    • mustang8918

      I just got this plan at 3:45 PM through the customer service chat window.

  • Rfgenerator

    Heard earlier today at T-Mobile Corporate… “yes, Mr. Stephenson, we’ll take care of that, very sorry about that Sir… We will be dispatching it into the memory hole right away…”

  • Errrr

    Hmm, I got it at 9am et and received my confirmation texts… This should be interesting to see if I keep it. I hope so because I gave up my grandfathered “MyFaves” for it.

    • Anonymous

      i was almost able to do the same. i was hesitant seeing as how if the merger goes thru, no-contract plans wont get grandfathered in…..but i guess Tmo just made my decision for me. im keeping the myfavs plan

    I was wondering why the change plan link was giving me an error when I tried to sign up for it. Ah well, I don’t ever come close to my cap now anyway.

  • http://twitter.com/PaulHarrisonPro Paul Harrison

    It actually doesn’t surprise me, that plan made even the EMP family plans look overpriced.

    No, I don’t think this has to do with AT&T, if AT&T was running T-Mobile to that degree they’d have stopped T-Mobile from running ads ridiculing AT&T’s “network”…

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lucas-LeCompte/47912789 Lucas LeCompte

    i guess i will just keep quiet about it until its fixed at work.

  • http://www.s-consult.com Wayne Schulz

    Since this is a no contract plan I’ doubt T-Mobile is overly concerned about having to let people out of contract. This never showed up online in my account either. I have the 1,000 E+ which is more than enough.

  • Millerliteguy

    I got this plan this morning..I checked my account and it says this is the plan I have. Do you think they are going to change it on me.

    • tmocc

      i switched one my customers to this today, this was not communicated with customer care, at least not earlier today….youll get to keep what you have.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HK7ALWU4PMZC7SUZ4NZLXDT6R4 Chad

        I’m pretty sure I was probably the very last person to sneak this in because as soon as I switched over to this promo plan and logged back in My T-mobile and seen I’ve been switched over successfully I came to TmoNews and seen this headline! but I’m still looking in My T-mobile and the option still available for people wanting to add a line to their EM+ account

  • Superjay73

    I’m an existing customer with 10 months left on a 2-year contract. Tried to add the EM Unlimited for $79.99 this morning. Was told this cannot be done without starting a new 2 year contract. No thanks. Grrrrr….

    just got back from the tmo store where they stonewalled me the moment i brought up that i wanted to change my plan to this. i almost didnt believe him….huge bummer

  • Sotl777

    I changed my plan this morning to the Even More Plus plan for 59.99, just called back and asked if I am still able to have it. They told me I was still getting it at the end of my billing cycle. I guess I will wait til next week and see, if I don’t get it, I will just port my number to verizon since im not under contract anymore wit t-mobile

    • Nexus guy

      Mine is effective today, I told them I didn’t want to wait. Ha ha ha

  • Trath90

    after reading this i just called and i still manage to get it! SO HURRY AND GET IT!

  • MattMJB0188

    I just called the T-Mobile Loyalty department and they confirmed this. The plan is still available to those who call in and ask for it until tonight. They will remove the plan from the system after today. He read exactly what this article had posted. Anyone who got the plan today will be grandfathered in. In my T-Mobile.com if you click on the mobile broadband tab at the top it should say: Promo EM+ 2GB 4G Unl DTT SP11

    • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

      I hope you can. I spoke to a regular rep online via. chat because I’m busy with other things & he said he can’t help me with that & it’s not being l launching as planned like I said.

      • MattMJB0188

        Call the T-Mobile Loyalty department ASAP before they remove this plan. If you can snag it you can keep it for as long as you like.

        • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

          Just did, they said they will let me

        • Gregtaylor1409

          How do you contact the loyalty dept??

    • http://twitter.com/WhyCantMyPhone Neal Elward

      I called to have it changed on Tuesday. They had the codes, but it wasn’t available yet, and my billing cycle ends on Friday, so they said they would just make the change then. I am assuming it’s not going to go through. If it’s not changed by Monday, I’m gone.

  • Rotor2k2

    Very dissapointing news from TMobile. :-(

  • Nexus guy

    Yep. Because I got it this morning lol

  • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

    See this is why the AT&T deal is not good. I really wanna slap the people cheering for the deal being approved. This is the beginning of what’s to come if the deal is approved. Come on now… we had 5GB’s to throttling for the longest, then COINCIDENTALLY it goes from that to 2GB on the ‘new’ plans? Do you think that was accidental? I think not. Now, they cancel the keywords ‘Even More’ “PLUS” version of the unlimited everything plan. I’m getting really urked. I was gonna change to that plan when I got my new Optimus G2x Wednesday. This is bull.

    • Trath90

      how about u get the plan now and just buy ur phone later?

      • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

        I’m not sure I can even get the plan at all. I wanted to wait until the date because I don’t actually own my account. My ‘guardian’ does because I don’t have credit, because I don’t use credit. So, I have to run it by her 1st because we are on a family plan together. I pay for everything with the exact money or debit, that’s just how I do. I’m against credit cards. Our plan started out as contract, then we switched to even more plus because I kept getting phones every 6 months or so, lol. & that still doesn’t take away from the fact that this is pure BULL!

        • Trath90

          ahh i see!! yeah thats a hassle right there!

        • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

          Yeah it is, this is why I want my own plan. I’m 21 now. I need my own ish. I pay for my own stuff anyways.

        • iFartWell

          Lmao ur older than me and still have a “guardian”? Bwaaaahahahahahaaa dude you totally SUCK AT LIFE!!

        • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

          Where the heck did you come from? I only called her a guardian because she’s not my parent. I actually pay for my own stuff. She just originally took over the plan because we been on the same plan since I started High school. You fail. I have actually had primary administration over the account for years. I basically change everything I want, I just had to let her know because we were on the same plan & it would effect her & that’s not fair. I pay basically most of the bill, make my own money, buy my own cell phones. Who’s buying a $500 LG Optimus G2x not w/ the assistance of a contract extension? I’ll wait for it… wait….. ok yeah, hush. I work, volunteer, drive my own car, learned to drive & passed the test w/in 2 weeks, work with upcoming artist, graphic design, video edit, work & worked with major company’s in which I have been highly praised, write poetry, I’ve completed 1 1/2 years of college & counting, honor roll, national honor society & so much more. Your life totally sucks that you had to try to throw in a negative comment at me when you don’t even know what your talking about, & the fact you NEEDED to make that comment because you don’t have any other relevance in life because that’s the only way you can build yourself up or make you happy. You can walk away with the remainder of what’s left of your life now.

        • Carlahotty45

          Wow ur still wack u dnt belive in credit cards? So I’m guessing ur not gunna build any credit? Wow I mean just wow I started building my credit when I turned 18 I’m now also 21 and my credit score is 783 . .. hpw are u ever gunna buy things like cars or a house??

    It’s Official. T-mob has gone and lost it’s damn Mind. Announcing plans and then cancelling them a day later, late night six hour deals for new customers only (Just hanging out on T-mobile’s twitter account page waiting for a chance to join America’s fourth largest network in the dark of night)

    Oh how I weep for thee oh crazy one.

  • Bam

    It was an unannounced plan that you never would have known existed if it wasn’t for this site. Stop bitching.

  • Jpg

    Whew!! got it this morning! and they told me i can keep it! EM+ Promo 4G Unl DTT SP11

  • Anonymous

    Well this must not be out of the system yet because I just switched my two Even More Plus lines to the promotional plan. She checked the system and confirmed everything was set up. (The call was a 12:30 PDT)
    Then she made it retroactive to my last billing period, so I saved some money there. Not significant, but a nice gesture, I thought.

    She broke down the plan as follows(FYI)

    No contract

    $29.99 unlimited talk.

    $10 Unlimited text

    $20 Unlimited data (2GB)

    Unlimited mobile to mobile. (T-Mobile that is).

    I was on an excellent rate before (Even More Plus Family) that was $154.12 monthly (taxes fees inc.)

    She said the bill will now be $131.34 (taxes fees inc.)

    Sidenote: If I went with MetroPCS premium 4G it would be $110 monthly for two lines. (Here in San Francisco 4G service has been rated acceptable). I probably won’t switch simply to save $21 monthly. Not worth the hassle.

    Bonus Comment: CSR had a heavy accent, so not sure where she was. But unlike other “furriners” she appeared very competent.

    Was on hold for about 19 minutes before they picked up the line. Total time on the phone: 40 minutes. That was a drag.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HK7ALWU4PMZC7SUZ4NZLXDT6R4 Chad

      I did the same having two of these are cheaper than having a family plan sharing two lines. Got mine in before tonight as well

  • ThaDude

    So, why would you want this plan when its a NON-CONTRACT plan..you would NOT be grandfathered into it(unless i’m wrong. When/If AT&T gets a hold of it, do you think that you would get to keep it? Also, isn’t this plan very similar to mysimplemobile.com (simple mobile) which IS THE SAME AS TMOBILE, also runs the same network and is contracted through them. Anybody could just get their 60& unlimited EVERYTHING throttling at 5GB and have the same plan.. am I right ? Thoughts/opinions?

    Also, you do not get a subsidized price on a phone with this deal either, right ?

    • Anonymous

      I’ll work it out for you:

      – People on EM+ pay far less than subsidized customers. Over a two year period I pay about $260 less than you do. (Just this number results in the discount one gets for agreeing to a two year deal).

      – We can pay for phones over 21 months. There’s no interest on this “loan.”

      – While I pay $500 for a phone, for example, I keep them in really good shape and sell them on eBay for about $150 less than what I paid. So the phone is costing me about $10 to $20 monthly to “rent.”

      – While you are stuck with the same phone for at least 22 months (before the next discount) and you have to pay another $200 for a new phone at that time, I get new phones every six months. (And if I get a new phone for each line, I have two, that means I can get any phone that T-Mobile comes out with. I don’t have the pressure of trying to decide which phone I want.

      – There’s no contract. If I see a better deal elsewhere, I can leave.

      – Because I can cancel at any time, T-Mobile treats me better in terms of giving me credits, fixing problems.

      end

    • http://ashn.myopenid.com/ Ash

      If/When ATT gets a hold of T-mo, I bet they will find a way to make you change your plans, best way is to just leave, I know, I like GSM too, but in USA there will be NO Choices anymore.
      I will go CDMA if I have no choice, and buy a cool Euro/Asia super phone for my travels!!!

      I will NOT go back to ATT! Vote with your wallets people.

  • Anonymous

    Note: If this was in error T-Mobile will either honor the deal it made with us, or it will send us a note saying the plan / promo was a mistake and simply retract it, effective the next billing cycle.

    In other words, depending on when they want to send notice, we can enjoy the savings.

    If not too many people got the promo price T-Mobile will probably just let up be since it’s not worth pissing us off.

    And if we said “Well to heck with you then, cancel my account!” T-Mobile will simply keep the plan in place. They are not going to lose your business over this error.

    So I would relax, anyone who got in on this deal. One way or another we will get to keep the plan.

    Note: Thanks TMoNews for posting this. I would not have known about it but for TMoNews covering the event.

    Bonus Comment: Although I was on 5GB throttling before and have now agreed to 2GB, I did not care. This is because on heavy Net use I activate WiFi. And there’s plenty of free WiFi when traveling. So 2GB should be fine for me.

    Moreover, I am fine with checking e-mail on EDGE speed. If I get throttled I can do without watching streamed video or movies on my phone.

  • Anonymous

    I should have known this was too good to be true. Simple mobile offers the same plan and they use tmobile towers.

  • Anonymous

    Update: Got two text messages, one for each line, saying “You recently changed the web plan on your T-Mobile account. If this was done in error….”

    So this deal is carved in stone. :)

  • mtsguy

    I got the emp plan it was still available to me

  • Xm_jdm

    It looks like calling and asking for a loyalty department supervisor will get you in on the plan. I called 5 min ago and asked for it. She initially said it was cancelled and that i couldn’t get in on it. I read off the memo and said that it’s being reported that it will officially be cancelled tonight. After being put on hold she reluctantly told me that I could get it but that my only window of opportunity was today only. And just like that I was signed up for it. Don’t give up guys! Keep at it! Very unfair of tmobile to pull this but be persistent. I called at least 10 times.

    • Anonymous

      Wow… good job. I told my CSR that I got an e-mail FROM T-Mobile offering the promo. She asked three times “so you got an e-mail” and I said “yes.”

      If she asked me to read it I was going to read off of TMoNews graphic announcing the promo. I didn’t have an e-mail.

      Gee, I feel so …. fraudulent. ;)

      • Gclayton86

        Hahaha. Smooth, man. I called the other day (4/12?) and tried to get on it. The guy was really helpful so he put everything in the notes. I called back today, and told the CSR that it had been offered to me as a loyalty thing from another CSR. BAM! I got on it. Unlimited Talk/Text/Web incl int’l for $72 after taxes.

    • Anonymous

      haha…when they meant available for a limited time, they weren’t kidding!!!! In TMO’s defense, promo plans can be pulled at anytime w/o notice…..Although it would’ve been better of TMO to not announce or even plan to launch a EM+ version of this promo plan. Why announce it then yank it the same day? They could’ve even backed out yesterday before the plan was scheduled to launch

      Yea Yea! so where you going now?

  • Eh-Eh

    I still have my EM+ 69.99/mo, 1000 min., 5G Throttle. I talked to a guy in a Tmo store today at about 2:00pm EST. He spoke as if that 59.99 plan was still available.

    I thought about switching for a second. Then I was like nahhhh. Dropping to 2G throttle to save 10 bucks? No thanks.

    • TrollSeason

      Thats the plan I had til this morning. I swap frequently between a BB 9780 and a MT4G sooo I’m going to try this $59.99 plan for a month and see if I can withstand the 2GB throttle and see how decent the speed is afterwards. If not, then eff it… I go back to payin $10 bux more. No biggie!!

  • TrollSeason

    Thats because you IDIOTS RUINED IT it by reporting pointless articles about it. Anyways I made the switch this morning and got the $59.99 Unlimited EM+ plan. No problems No hassles =D

    Sucks for everyone else though. HA, HA!

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/35HLVJSI34LMH5M274SCGWDZBY mike

      I’m pretty sure that this site had nothing to do with the plan being cancelled. Glad you were able to get in on it though

  • Jaygqitalia

    I just got off the phone with Tmobile and he said that there was a glitch in the system , and they just had a meeting on it. It will come sooner or later

    • Xm_jdm

      No. It’s been canned. You were lied to.

      • Jaygqitalia

        I called again and spoke to someone else , it was in the system and he gave it to me. He put everything in the notes. So if they try canceling it tonight, it has been offered and my plan has been changed. They will have to honor it.

        • Xm_jdm

          If you bothered reading the initial thread you’d see that it will be in the system until late tonight. It’s not being voluntarily offered to people.

        • Jaygqitalia

          Yes i ead that and im pointing out that if you call up and get the right person and ask about it , you will get it. Simple as that.

        That might be the Even More version you are seeing. It’s $69.99.

    • D-HelpPlease

      u think the 2gb is enough???

      i called and spoke with a rep earlier and he says i rarely get to 1g and this month i am 900mb.

      i think the reason i dont reach 2gs or above is because im on this cheesy moto cliq lol and its far from a powerhouse phone so i cant view utube videos on it to much cause its slooooow.

      I imagine if I get this wonderful g2x i might need more, even with doing the tmobile data calculator 1hr a day streaming vids puts me way over 2gs ( not saying i will watch a 1hrs worth a day, maybe during the high of a new phone)

      im so confused!!? lol
      I mostly use my phone for browsing due to my limited goodies on the cliq.
      i tethere from time to time, but nothing major.

      help me out d, you seem well informed bout this stuff??

        I mean it’s all a matter of preference. I actually don’t. I wish it was 10GB. But, the plan is so good it’s like why would I pass up on it. & I’m at home most of the time (I work from home & everything), so it’s like make use of WiFi. When I was using my 4G, I was mostly at home, & I’m like why? I had no reason to be using it when I have WiFi, & even then I didn’t make it past 400Mb’s. I use my phone mainly for downloading app’s, social networking, email, & IM. So, I get by. The occasional youtube vid’s as well. & it’s been stated average customers only use about 1 Gig.

    need quick advice. have the unlimited customer loyalty plan for $49, with texting and net its 80$. contract expired in november. have EM+ cue’d up online about to hit enter to complete the change. should i keep my old plan or move to EM+ not worried about equipment upgrades and subsidizing etc. MAIN CONCERN: what i read is once you switch to EM+ you cant switch back to EM. and with merger w/ ATT, will our EM+ be canned/forced to sign new contract with them, vs. keeping my old EM and potentially not having a problem when transition hits?

    Change to EM+ or no??? quick kids! :)

    • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

      I would get the EM+ plan. I actually changed my plan today. I been changed from the loyalty plan, it was still too much & I wasn’t even using it all to the unlimited limit. & T-Mobile said like it’s been stated because my grandma said “don’t sell out to AT&T”, lmao. Even she don’t agree with the merger & she’s a AT&T retiree, lol. They said they they will honor our data plans by grandfathering them over to the merger, which they will. & the deal if approved like others said would take 12 months to be completely official & a few years for AT&T to actually make major changes. You should be covered, I say go for it. It’s a great deal.

        good call D, i just hope it doesn’t bite me in the ass when the merger happens, (ex. they say all no contract people will be sold off to a third party) any other input on this people?

    I stopped by a T-Mobile store on my way to my PO Box. Talked to a CSR who was very knowledgeable. And he was more excited about anything T-Mobile than the owner of this site is. :)

    Anyway, I mentioned the Even More Plus promo and he said I was lucky to get it because it had in fact been pulled and he could not offer it to anyone.

  • NardVa

    You can still get the plan if you are a current customer and you log into your account to make the change online. Not sure how long it’s gone be there. T Mobile will probably let current customers continue to get the plan. Just no new activations.

      If I ever run into you I owe you a beer . Thanks man . Thanks big time : )

    To those who got the plan are you able to view your usage in MyTMobile.com? Ever since I had the loyalty department switch me to this plan I am unable to view my usage by clicking recent use.
