If this ninja shot proves accurate, T-Mobile is set to introduce revamped Family Plans on May 22nd which streamline their existing offerings. The picture tells most of the story but lets see if we can’t break it down a little more. Gone are the existing 1,500 and 750 minute plans and introduced are the 1,000 and 2000 minute plans.

For $99 you will get two lines with unlimited talk and text. Adding data to the first two lines will bring you to $119 for 200MB of data, $139.99 for 2GB, $159.99 for 5GB and $219.99 for 10GB. What we can’t ascertain from the picture alone is what the additional charge for data is for the 3rd, 4th and 5th line users. Adding the 3rd, 4th and 5th line users for talk and text will cost $10 per person for 500 minutes and $30 per person for unlimited minutes but the cost of data for those lines remain a mystery.

$79.99 will get 2,000 minutes but T-Mobile is really looking to push the unlimited plan by not making text or data available for the middle option. Customers will have to ultimately choose between 1,000 minutes and unlimited talk and text. While we appreciate the simplified options there is a big difference between choosing 1,000 minutes and unlimited not to mention the overall price difference.

The 1,000 minute plan will cost you $59.99 for two lines with talk or $79.99 for 1,000 minutes with texting. In terms of data 200MB will cost you $99.99, 2GB will cost $119.99, 5Gb will cost $139.99 and 10GB of data will cost $199.99.

The bottom line is that this image leaves us with a lot of questions and as its a leak and a ninja shot we aren’t likely to get everything answered until T-Mobile makes an official announcement.

    no unlimited data anymore? Yikes… This ATT thing is already effecting Tmobile.

    • Larry

      You called it. It’s like your phone is full of Nitro..you’re afraid to use it or something bad will happen (cost per mb after cap) according to the phone rep, unlimited is (was as of 2 weeks ago) now $30/month..which is preposterous, and worse, the new option they try to push on you is the 200mb/ and 5 cents a mb after that deal. 200mb is not enough data to consider using your device even for email and google maps for a month.. fankly, im now in the market for a new provider, regardless what happens to the merger

      I’ll guess this is a xGB at full speed, then throttle instead of $ when crossing the alloted GB

    • TMO fanatic

      it is STILL UNLIMITED DATA!!!!  NOTHING IS CHANGING WITH THE DATA….IT HAS ALWAYS HAD A THROTTLE POINT AT THE 5G MARK.  NOW THERE WILL BE AN OPTION FOR THE 2G TO SAVE CUSTOMERS MONEY.  THIS WILL WORK FOR ABOUT 60% OF THE CUSTOMER BASE!!!!!

    “N/A – Upsell to Unlimited” — that’s kinda bogus malogus…

    • Mbregar13

      Do you really not understand why? Look at the prices. If you add $20 fam text it ends up being the same price as the unlimited talk. Essentially they are saying, hey… if you add a feature we’ll change your minutes to unlimited at no extra charge. 

  • Weaven

    Finally!
    I have been waiting for some better minute bucket options!
    Regarding the upsell from 2000 to unlimited, I think
    Some customers will not like
    That at all. What if they don’t need unlimited? Why should they pay more?
     

    • http://micronokiadev.wordpress.com/ bluechrism

      They aren’t  - $20 increase for unlimted text from $79.99 = 99.99 at which you now get unlimited talk and text.  the folks on 1000 minutes aren’t getting more minutes when they pay $79.99 for text, they just get text.  At the moment it looks like 79.99 gets you 1500 mins talk and 99.99 adds text.  Those customers get either 500 mins (at 80) or unlimited mins more talk time for the same price they pay now.  You just can’t have talk + data and no text.

  • BigMixxx

    what happened to ‘unlimited’? looks like they are lining up with the rest of the industry.  Or does that mean the cap before throttle…

    Looking at this though, I can cut my bill some more…which is good…

    • http://micronokiadev.wordpress.com/ bluechrism

      check the top one – unlimted only meant throttled at 5GB (technically unlimited as no overage charges, but no speed after a certain point)

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5TKUSC47UEBH446UFCOTYAEI6M Kimberly

     i think ill just wait til my contract ends then move on to verizon. I mean if they are going to do away with unlimited data then I might as well go with someone who actually has 3g in my area. and Yes I know this isnt the official Tmobile site, :)

    • TMO fanatic

      unlimited data is not going away.  there has always been a throttle point of 5g.  most people on average are using less than 2g of data per month unless they are tethering their device to a laptop or constantly streaming video like through youtube. 

  • http://profiles.google.com/afnaples john leary

    The “current offerings” don’t show unlimited data also. I would guess that that is the cap before throttling. Not bad but I don’t want to reup my contract with the unknowing future of AT&T&T. 

    • TMO fanatic

      at this time, if the buyout is a success, tmobile customers will be allowed to keep their grandfathered rate plans and features. 

  • OldPro

     So….  Is that two Gigabyte per line?   Or is that 2 gigabyte shared?

    • http://micronokiadev.wordpress.com/ bluechrism

      per line i expect. Looks like data is priced at 2 times the individual rate (or at least it used to be). 

    • TMO fanatic

      all data will be a per line basis.  this is because of types of data sent out being different for bb versus all other OS. 

  • Anonymous

    Better deal than the single Truly Unlimited TTW promo plan. $70 per line on a 2 line family plan vs $80 individual plan

  • http://twitter.com/The_Swiftman Swiftman

    Should we expect changes to the Even More Plus family plans as well?

  • Thad

    I’m going to guess that these are limits before the throttling, just like they’ve been doing, until I hear there is no such thing as unlimited.

  • AD

    I still have a better deal being under the defunct Fam Fave plan with unlimited text and data

    • Anonymous

      Same here. No matter how many changes they make I still get it cheaper with myfaves with 5 lines. This would definitely increase my bill.

    Previously the data plans have had no discount for family – i.e individual plans at 10 oo 30 (Even More – 10 or 25 on Even More pLus) and either 20 or 60 (50 on emp) is added – equivalent to 2  times the cost.
    Does this hint at 4 tiers of data coming for individual plans at 10/20/30/40?

    Also, basically no change on the low end, though if you want over 200 mb, but not 5gb of data per line i guess you do now have another option.
     

  • WhyBeTea

    Sounds off your price: I pay 180 for a family play with unlimited voice, txt, data for two lines. what say yall?

    • http://micronokiadev.wordpress.com/ bluechrism

      unlimited or is this the unlimited that’s throttled at 5GB as in the top table above?  If so, this is better as the same data will cost $20 less (provided it’s still throttled not just capped). 

      • WhyBeTea

         How can someone find out if their plan has throttled data plan? or is that tmobile wide? no getting out of it?

        • http://micronokiadev.wordpress.com/ bluechrism

          I think if it’s Even More / Even More plus it’s throttled.  It might not be for grandfathered plans.

          all the current plans with the exception of the 200 mb are throttled at 5g (or 2g for the truly unl plan).

        everything except the 200 mb is throttled at the cap.  doesn’t stop you from using it, just drops your speed own to about 50 kbps

      • Anonymous

        All Unlimited plans are throttled at 5g, even if your plan was grandfathered years ago. They changed all web to 10gb cap when the G1 launched and then lowered it to 5g a few years ago. Although the pricing didn’t change for the grandfathered rates, the cap did.

    • TMO fanatic

       if you only have 2 lines, save yourself some cash….its about $20 less per month to do two individual truly unlimited rate plans than it is to have the fam unl talk text and web for two lines.  if you have more than two lines, check your usage, if you are staying under 3000 minutes per month combined between all lines, switch to the 3000 minute promo do more plan.  instead of paying $40 per month for the additional lines, it will drop it to only $5 per  month per additional line plus $20 if you want the unl (5g) web. with this plan, the additional lines just share in the 3000 minutes, they are not limited to only 200 mins or pay the additional 25 to make the line unlimited. if you have three lines all with unl web on this plan your bill would be 174.99 per month plus tax and insurance if you have it. (which i strongly recommend since it gives you lifetime warranty on your device as well).

  • http://www.facebook.com/phathom Peter Dudycz

     This SUCKS. I we barely use 400 minutes on our 750 minute plan. I just wanted a cheaper plan with less minutes for family.

  • Petey

    They need to bring MyFave back… I think it helped T-Mobile alot when they had it before… Still have it on my plan.

  • Vjballa21

    this is awesome! It gives customers the 2 gig internet option! just what my customers wanted :) 

  • http://www.absolutefiction.com Jed Tylman

    I’m not renewing my contract when it expires this summer.
    See if they continue my 800 minute plan anyway of if they will try to force me to switch to the new plans.
    Without MyFaves, it’s not looking so good. :-(

    • TMO fanatic

      you will never be forced away from your grandfathered plan with tmobile.  you may keep it whether or not you upgrade your phone which extends your contract by two years.  you can still keep your rate plan….however if you have a grandfathered web service, like the 24.99 unlimited, you will have to switch that to either the 200 mb or the unlimited 4g web service.  yes, the my favs is a wonderful rate plan for those who actually use the myfavs.  we moved away from it and came up with better minute packages to better assist those that either forget to set up their myfavs or forget to adjust them when they start calling other numbers more regularly than the ones on their favs list. for most people with the myfavs, a few of the newer rate plans will cover their whenever usage plus their myfavs usage without a problem and can even drop your monthly bill.  talk with an account rep and we’ll let you know which plan would best suit your usage.  i for one, will never let any of my customers switch away from the myfavs unless i am 1000% positive it will save them money and headache.  (i believe in karma and i know i would be the one getting your call yelling about your bill if you end up with overage do to a change like that.)

  • Larry

    What sucks is the data offerings/changes…$30 for unlimited, or you can go with the capped plan and be afraid to use it…so you get to pay, but are afraid to play. As the data plan is required to purchase data phones on contract, T-mobile has followed the AT&T trick of forcing you to pay for something youre afraid to use. Way to go T-Mobile 

    • Larry

      scratch that, I don’t even see the unlimited anymore, I got the $30 for unlimited quote on the phone a couple weeks ago. Dire indeed this is. 

    • http://micronokiadev.wordpress.com/ bluechrism

      Are you sure it’s unlimted, or is it the unlimited that’s throttled at 5GB like all the current even more and even more plus plans.  Most other providers charge overage, T-Mo says unlimited because they just cut your speed, but the 5GB plan in the top table IS the current “unlimited” data plan. 

      T-Mobile T’s and C’s:
      “2. Protective MeasuresTo provide a good experience for the majority of our customers and minimize capacity issues and degradation in network performance, we may take measures including temporarily reducing data throughput for a subset of customers who use a disproportionate amount of bandwidth; if your total usage exceeds 5GB (amount is subject to change; please periodically check T-Mobile.com for updates) during a billing cycle, we may reduce your data speed for the remainder of that billing cycle. We may also suspend, terminate, or restrict your data session, Plan, or service if you use your Data Plan in a manner that interferes with other customers’ service, our ability to allocate network capacity among customers, or that otherwise may degrade service quality for other customers.”

      • TMO fanatic

        there is no overage on the unlimited plan, just the throttling.  the only one that has overage is the 200 mb plan.  i am very well acquainted with the plans as i deal with them daily. 

        • http://micronokiadev.wordpress.com/ bluechrism

          Sorry if that came across that way –  i didn’t mean to suggest that there was overage on it.

    • TMO fanatic

      play on it, you can check your web usage from your phone by dialing #web# send.  it will tell you how much you’ve used and its accurate within the last 2 hours.  check your usage before the end of your billing cycle, if you have gone over by more than 150 mb’s, then call cust care and raise it up to the unlimited, they will backdate it so you’re covered for your usage for the entire month.  $.10 per mb over times 150 mb’s= $15, the difference in the $15 200 mb and the unl for $30.  there’s no contractual ramifications by doing this.  just don’t wait until the day after your billing cycle ends to call care because then there’s no way to fix the overages.  and you can always change back to the lower plan the following billing cycle.  

      • ATL Guy

         That’s weird it says 259.7714 mb

        • TMO fanatic

          thats how many mb’s you’ve used.  for billing purposes it will be rounded up to 260 mb.  so if you have the 200 mb plan, you definitely wanna watch that between now and the end of your billing cycle and if it shows 350 mb or more, you will save more money by at least temporarily switching over to unl data for the month.

  • Anonymous

    T-Mobile needs to stop fucking around with the 3000 minute family rate plans. seriously

    • ATL Guy

      If you are under contract you will still keep your 3k min plan. That is the plan I have with 3 lines. 

      • TMO fanatic

        even if you’re not under contract you can still keep your plan.  you can keep a grandfathered plan as long as you like, but once you switch to a new plan, you can’t go back.  remember that. 

  • Slickz

    My from understanding, since they announced the AT&T-Mobile merger, they started throttling all their data plans, for example if you had “Unlimited web & data 3G/4G” you were throttled at 5GB.  Their current “TRULY” unlimited 79.99 Individual plan throttles you at 2GB. you at 2GB.

    • http://micronokiadev.wordpress.com/ bluechrism

      IN my reply from Larry’s post below i copied from a Terms and conditions doc dated July 2010, well before AT&T deal.  Throttling is not new, but it’s a heck of a lot better than just cutting access or charging overage which is what the others do, and means T-Mobile can get away with calling it unlimited.

        Oh, one of the other documents i came across (i didn’t open it, but the page header/first line in the search results) hinted at a law suit for calling it unlimited when it’s throttled.  I wonder if these changes are as a result of that. I also wonder if they will keep throttling (i hope they do) or charge overage.

        • TMO fanatic

           any lawsuit filed about this would be denied because you do get unlimited data.  it doesn’t STOP you from accessing the web, it just slows WAY down.

        • http://micronokiadev.wordpress.com/ bluechrism

          Unless you could put forward a convincing argument to say that throttling IS a form of limiting data.  I’m not saying it’s likely, but just a thought.

        • TMO fanatic

          true.  but i doubt they could find a convincing argument since you can still access…..just not very quickly.  lol

    • TMO fanatic

       there has always been the throttling at 5g of data….drops you down to 50 kbps.  the promo plan throttles at 2g.  throttling is nothing new.  and on the truly unl plan you can still get the 5g throttle point for an additional $10.

  • Options

    So will there still be data and text service/add-on options even with these changes. You know, mix and match for the best price?

    • TMO fanatic

      yes 

  • TMO fanatic

     making bets the additional line charges for data will be $10 for 200 mb, $20 for 2g, $30 for 5g, and $60 for 10g.  with $.10 per mb overage.  just my guess.

    Loyalty offered me $89.00 per month for two lines unlimited data, text, and web!

        i second that bs!!!  89 .98 is unl talk….they may have thrown in texting somehow but no way that you get unl web with it for that price. 

        • Droidsoup

          I get unlimited talk and text on a loyalty family plant at $99.98/mo.  We pay unlimited texts on a family plan of $9.99/mo we can add 3 more lines at $30.00/mo but we just have two lines.  Thinking of getting a Nokia N8 for $349.99 then jump over to the new $70.00/mo pre-paid unlimited talk+text+data; that is coming out May 22nd.

    • Trainwreck

      Why would I lie? Lol! I didn’t sign up for it yet but that’s what they offered me. I was pissed off about my Vibrants not working after the 2.2 update. I told customer service j was going to Verizon because of the crappy service I had been getting (been with T-Mobile for 12 years) and they transferred me to loyalty.

      I was ready to do it but my wife talked me out of it. I will call them back and verify for you guys, but she assured me that it was u.limited everything for $89.99/month. Additional like would be $30. I inquired because I needed a business line and two personal.

      I didn’t even ask for this, they were just trying to give away the farm.

      • Trainwreck

        89.99 for two and third would be $30. I didn’t clarify that well.

        • I want the acquisition

          @5f359d43e7b064ebc527c87fcece9ecd:disqus  I still call BS, unless the rep lied to you. Loyalty can give you grandfathered plans, but they cannot create new cheaper plans just to keep you. They cannot also comp you every month for both your txt and web, especially for 2 phones. It kills me when I read on these websites fools like you bullshitting around as T-Mobile would give you the world to keep you. As an employee for 8 years I know that loyalty would offer you new devices for free and try to work something out to keep you, but they are not going to lose the company money just for your sake. The fact is that you come around here and lie to everybody to look cool or important, the truth though is that you are not that important to T-Mobile for them to give you that plan, they would rather let you go, and unless I can verify, this incredible pan that you did not apparently sign up for (yeah right), and trust me I can verify it, then I am still calling you on your bullshit.

        • remixfa

           i dont know why as a tmo rep you want the aquisition.. but yea, i agree, trainwreck is either not telling the truth, or did not know what was actually offered to him.  Loyalty family plan is 8999 for unlimited voice and text and then the regular 30 per line for data.

          Ive been calling for a “family” data plan for a while now but im not sure if i like where they are going with the plan structure.  Right now you can get 2 lines, 3000 minutes, unlimited text and data for 150.  Unless that “5 gig” plan means its 5 gigs per phone not per family plan i dont see the value in that.  I guess we will find out tomorrow at the big meeting.  OI.

    • Matt

       Wait…..you’re kidding…..can you elaborate please?!?!?

  • Junk2319

     This is basically the unlimited loyalty plan with the $19.99 family text plan….isn’t it?

  • fallenturtle

    Is this going to be like how it is now where these “data” plans aren’t for Android devices?

    • TMO fanatic

      its for all phones.   

  • majentarulz

    Unlimited talk + text is a much better deal than a 2000 minute talk + text option.  If you look at the price difference between the 1000 minute talk only plan and the 1000 minute talk + text plan, we are left with $20.00 – the same price as adding family texting on the current pricing structure.  If you add the cost of family texting to the talk only price of the 2000 minute plan, you are left with the same price as the unlimited talk and text option at $99.99.  The only thing I don’t understand is why you can’t get unlimited talk only.  It would be cool to see a shared family data plan come into the mix sometime soon.

     Well, people if you want a deal look to the pre-paid that is coming out May 22nd.  $70.00/mo. unlimited talk + text + data plan.  The $50.00/mo. gives you unlimited talk + text and data to 100mb then throttled down to edge speed but still a connection at no extra charges.

     If you want a cheap talk and text plan you can look to Walmart Family Mobile. Two phones for $70/mo. plus one time activation charge of $25/per line.  They offer 200MB starter on a 2 line plan then buy data packets in increments of $10 for 200MB, $25 for 500MB, and $40 for 1,000MB (or 1GB).  Another pre-paid option is to look at mysimplemobile dot com they have a $40/mo unlimited talk and text, a $50/mo unlimited talk + text, and 100MB data; and finally $60/mo unlimited talk, text, and data plan.  Note: that they say on the my simple mobile that you can’t do three way calling.hey offer 200MB starter on a 2 line plan then buy data packets in increments of $10 for 200MB, $25 for 500MB, and $40 for 1,000MB (or 1GB).  Another pre-paid option is to look at mysimplemobile dot com they have a $40/mo unlimited talk and text, a $50/mo unlimited talk + text, and 100MB data; and finally $60/mo unlimited talk, text, and data plan.  Note: that they say on the my simple mobile that you can’t do three way calling.

    Will take an act of god for me to give up my grandfathered 5 friends family plan. plus loyalty dept gives us unlimited data plans for 20.00 each.

      I feel you. I keep thinking that changing my plan would be beneficial but after I do the calculations, I am better off where I’m at w/ my Fav5 family plan w/ 3 lines

    question ! so they made a change, section 5 of the terms and aggrement says they can make changes but if it effects me in any way ican cancel my line without an etf 14 days after the change is effective. Will this effect me?

    • deejayeetee

      They’re making changes to the plans they’re offering for new customers or customers who choose to change their plans. They’re not going to force you off your current plan and onto one of the new ones, so this isn’t one of those things that means you can cancel without the ETF.

    can someone please clarify for me:
    it says up there that add-a-lines for sharing minutes will be $10.00
    right now it is $5.00 if im not mistaken, at least on the new family plans, like the 3000 min, unlim text/data 
    so t-mobile is increasing the price? 

    • Anonymous

      it is $10 now, there was a special promo that ran until december of last year with $5 add a lines and even free add a lines, but that was promotional only, so it remains the same price

      • kevin

        oh wow, yeah you’re right. its apparently still $5 for the promo 3000 min plan

    does data plans, after you reach that 200MB, you will get charged for the overuse or the speed becomes slower?

    • T-Mobile rep

      After 200 MB you will be charged overages of $0.10 per 1MB. After 2000 MB you will be throttled to dial-up speeds.

        This is all too confusing. Yesterday i saw that 2 G was 20 and  5 G was 30 and 10 G was 60 bucks. According to this it is more like 40 60 and 120 respectively. WTF? 

        • Pancho_2001

          the 20, 30, 60 prices are correct, but they are per line, not per account…

        I hope you are NOT an actual rep. If you are, either you are wrong, they changed the plan during this month or T-mobile is hiding something in double small print in terms and conditions.

        “*Data at up to 4G speeds on capable devices included with no overages,
        up to plan limit. Once monthly plan limit is reached data speeds will be
        reduced.”

    I wonder if these new data plans will be compatible with legacy plans, such as the old Family Time plans and Get More plans? I hate how legacy plans are not eligible for the $10 200MB plan but rather the $15 200MB plan or the $30 unlimited plan (or Preferred Unlimited for $20). Some users actually like saving money on a non-unlimited data plan on a legacy plan such as I.

    I just spoke with tmobile yesterday and here is what they offered me, I have unlimited talk text and data for 79$ a month. My last plan was the same but for 59$ for unlimited talk and 30$ for unlimited web and text. I recieved a much better deal! I asked if the prices were subject to change and they told me that with changing to the new plan my rates would be locked in for two years. My advice? call t-mobile and get locked into a good deal now before the rate plans change,, it just seems to confusing. Also if you are a flex account with t-mobile they are switching people to the regular post pay accounts. I had called and asked before and was told I had to jump a bunch of hoops to switch over to post pay, but when I called yesterday they said I was approved. I think there will be a lot of changes soon. I wouldnt wait~
