(Updated) T-Mobile Releasing Unlimited Promo Plan April 13th?

Update: There is a catch to this plan regarding data usage, after the first 2 GB’s of data speeds are throttled till the bill cycle resets. Check out the image below for more detail!

Rumors of an unlimited $79.99 unlimited plan first surfaced back in the middle of February and was then delayed for unknown reasons. Well it’s been delayed no more as the $79.99 “Truly Unlimited Data + Talk + Text for $79.99″ a month is back and arrives April 13th. This is an individual line promotion only and can only be paired with an Even More account. The existing $79.99 1500 minute Talk + Text + Web plan will be grandfathered as of April 12th.

The unveiling of this rate plan could be construed as a “business as usual” mindset for T-Mobile hoping to increase their customer count ahead of a possible AT&T deal. Either way, it’s still a great deal.

    i am confused I have had this plan for a long time now, even when I went froma single line with unlimited to family to Even More then back too Even More…how is this a new thing?

    Right now I’m on the unlimited loyalty plan that gives me unlimited voice for $49.99 plus $34.99 for unlimited text + data for a total of $84.98. Any advantage or disadvantage to switching to this plan other than saving $5 a month? Also looks like its available to choose right now if your logged in to my account.

      The disadvantage to switching is your data cap before throttle goes from 5GB to 2GB. If you don’t use more than 2GB of data a month then it would be smart to switch and save money.

    I would be remiss if I didn’t note that Virgin Mobile has an Unlimited talk, text, and data(truly unlimited, no throttling) plan for $60..so this plan isn’t all that revolutionary, its more reactionary.

  • XOBLITERN4T3x

    its a solid plan but this plan is to benefit new customers or ones that are on a 500/1500 min plan if you aalready have an unlimited plan like WySSOne then keep it otherwise jump on it while its around

    My plan better be grandfathered in or heads will roll. I’m sure t-mo will do tha right thang! =) been throttled each of the two months I’ve had my phone.

    Sorry for the noob question(s), but I’m just not up-to-speed on all the ins-and-outs of the T-Mobile rate plans.

    I’m retiring my G1 and buying the G2x. I am out of contract. I don’t know what rate plan to sign up for. What plan would you recommend? Also, (if it matters) I have the scratch to just buy the G2x for $500 and walk away from the $200 upgrade price.

    I use about 800 minutes of talk and 600 text messages monthly. I anticipate being able to keep my data usage under 2GB, but I haven’t had a phone that would also serve as a WiFi hotspot. I could see how that would be both useful and also use more data — especially in my work (I’m a consultant and spend a lot of time at my customer’s offices and they don’t like ‘outsiders’ on their network for fear of viruses, etc.).

    I’d like to strike a balance between lowest cost and greatest flexiblity (being able to bail if AT&T sucks in a year’s time would be nice). Is there any benefit to signing up for any of the Even More Plus plans now and getting grandfathered in after the 13th? Are there any good ‘no contract’ options? What would you do?

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
