T-Mobile To Introduce “Value, Classic” Plans, Replace Even More Plus

After doing a little teasing yesterday regarding T-Mobile’s plans to revamp their current rate plan selection (again) beginning in late July. We’re still compiling information which means all of this is subject to change but we’re pretty confident the end result will look similar. According to our ninjas T-Mobile plans to kill off their Even More Plus plans once and for all and introduce “Value” and “Classic” plans.  Value plans are very similar to EM+ but with more savings. The “Classic” plans will be what is currently available(Even More)  and we don’t expect any changes regarding those offerings.

So what are Value plans? According to our sources they are going to be very similar to Even More Plus plans with the biggest exception being they will now require contracts. T-Mobile will no longer have any non-contract offerings except for prepaid.

  • Value plans will be able to add unlimited text to family plans for $5 a line as no text bundles will be offered.
  • New data plan pricing for Value plans
    • 200MB for $5
    • 2GB for $10
    • 3GB for $15
    • 5GB for $25
    • 10GB for $55
    • No web features are required for value plans
  • Three new rate plan prices
    • 1000 Min for $49.99 with $5 add a line
    • 2000 Min for $59.99 with $5 add a line
    • Unlimited plan with $5 add a line for 500 minutes, $20 for unlimited
  • Value plans have 21 month Equipment Installment Plan for full price on equipment, the first month is paid up front.
  • Max EIP is $300 a line
  • Existing EIP plans cannot be cancelled, if you lose/break a phone have insurance
  • Two year contracts are REQUIRED
  • FIrst payment will be the same as traditional two year contract price on Classic plans
  • Migration fees from Classic to Value plans range from $0 to $200 depending on how far customer is in contract, out of contract has no migration fee
  • One a customer switches to value plan cannot go back to Classic Plan
  • Classic plans will no longer have Equipment Installment Options

I once again urge that this information is unconfirmed but we do know these plans are coming. There are obviously a lot of holes and gaps to fill in with this information and we’re working diligently to confirm and edit of all this.  So take this with a large grain of salt but as we are hearing lots of chatter regarding these new plans expect information to make its way out as we progress into July.

  • Is it just me – or has T-Mobile changed rate plans more in the last 3 years than any other cellular company?

      True. I am confused with all these plan changes…

  • Yess, I kind of like this. I can pick my own data. I want the 3 Gigs w/ at least 1500 whenever minutes w/ nights & weekends & unlimited mobile to mobile w/ texting. $60? That’d be really nice. I love that there is a in-between from 2GB-5GB because I’m somewhere in the middle. DANG at it being contract now. Big BLAH! I wanna be able to hit the ground running (straight to Sprint) if the AT&T buyout happens.lol

  • Anonymous

    When I read the “classic” name, I thought they were going to bring back their old “Get More” rate plans. Only reason they keep changing their plans, is because people are just not seeing the old T-Mobile when it comes to voice and data plans. Not everyone wants to buy a phone for retail, even if you are paying with the EIP.

    T-Mobile needs to bring back old plans.

  • Anonymous

    One thing, at least to me, is if it still has a contact why would I have to pay a migration fee, which seems to be the same as an ETF.

  • Two year contract = no friggin’ way.

    Sorry, the only justification for contracts is the whole “Need to get the subsidy back on the phone we sold you” thing. If you don’t subsidize the phone, you have no moral or business need to force contracts.

    I really hope the smaller carriers are up with their LTE networks come the buyout. Rumors are that Sprint is switching to LTE – I hope that’s true, even if it may upset their existing customers. Otherwise it’s a choice between Verizon and MetroPCS… urgh.

  • So basically those of us on EM+ might as well just get a two-year contract EM plan since they are moving everyone to contractual plans. Not sure wht the savings will be for me personally but I’d would have to sit down and count up the cost.

  • So, let me get this right. I can get the 2000 minute plan for $59.99, $5 add a line gets me 500 minutes for the other line? or do I have to pay an additional $5 for that? & what’s the price of the unlimited plan, i’m confused.

    What I want is 2000 minutes  ($59.99) for myself
    w/ $3GB’s ($15)
    w/ texting ($5)
    Subtotal: $80

    + my grandma a line ($5)
    + her $500 minutes ($? fill in the blank somebody please)

    Total $’s: ????????????????

    • Bimmerz

      Not sure what the total is, as I am with you – it’s a little confusing!  But I will say this, I am SO glad that I am grandfathered in on my unlimited everything plan (throttled down after 5GB), at $85 per/mo. I’ll keep that plan for as long as I can (until AT&T tries to force me to change it – if the acquisition goes through, that is). 

      • We had that, but cancelled because the total end up being too much, & we weren’t using all that. But……….. now we’re paying about the same anyways, lol.

      Way I see it is 2000 for $50 and $5 for the 2nd line to join into those minutes

      Unlimited with a 2nd line is 500 mins for $5 or $20 for unlimited as well.  Wake up D it’s in black and white! lol

      • According to PhoneDog the phone’s would be the subsidized cost that you would normally get on a normal contract “Classic” plan, you would pay the 1st installment up front & it would be spread across 21 months. So, I’m guessing for instance if somebody wanted a Sensation 4G, it would be $199 on the “Value” plan, so total would be $211.98, 21 installment of  $10 per month. Hmmm…

          Yeah that’s the catch BUT what if you bought a phone off Craigs or carried over your old phone?  Then it’s immediately cheap as hell.  Also, if TMo was not going anywhere then it’s a crazy cheap plan to be on after two years.

    So does this mean current customers on EMP plans will be forced into contacts? What happens to us EMP folks who have put lots of money into our handsets?

    • Customers on current plans will remain customers on current plans. They wouldn’t force you to change. Only those who want to “migrate” will be able to do so.

      • Ash

        I used to think that about t-mo, didn’t you reported that buying a 4G phone, might get customers forced into a 4G data plan? $30/month??
        No more $10/month data for me?

    Wait isn’t this much cheaper than the current contract free plans?  You still have to pay full price for the phone but much less up front and the cost of the plan is reduced.  

    I don’t pay much attention to non contracted stuff but is the only gripe the fact that you need to sign a contract? Regardless of cheaper plan?

    After you pay off the phone and keep it passed the 2 years (this is of course if T-Mobile is still around) then you are left with extremely cheap data and $5 unlimited text??

    • Ziggy123

      I was thinking the same thing.  You cant beat $5 for unlimited text and $5 for 200 MB of data (more than enough for checking email and my calendar on the road).

    • 21stNow

      No, I don’t see how this is much cheaper.  The lowest voice minutes plan rises from $30 to $50.  The data is OK, but there is no text bundle yet for individual plans.  What do they expect individuals to do, pay per text?  I currently pay $60 for 500 minutes, unlimited data and unlimited text.  There is no combination of the above that will bring me to $60 for a similar amount of services.

  • James Westberry

    Can someone answer this question, On the tmobile website when looking at your plan does it show the 2gb cap or does it show unlimited?

    • It depends on your plan. I personally have the “old” “unlimited” for $24.99 (with a 5GB “cap” any overages  throttled). My plan shows unlimited for all my lines even though I’d be throttled after 

      5GB. That (semi)new unlimited comes with 2GB then you’re throttled. I would think it should show “unlimited” on your account, but………since I don’t have that plan……….I’m probably wrong.

    Don’t know what you all are complaining about. $10 for a 2gb plan sounds much better than $25 for the current 2gb plan. The 5gb will also be lowered to $25.

    I never cared for even more plans so this is a plus. And since I just extended my contract to get a Sensation, I will be moving over to this cheaper plan come July.

    • Jaygqitalia

      I pay 59.99 for my EM+ plan with unlimited everything, no contract

      • Anonymous

         how is that possible? unlimited everything on EM+ is 79.99.  59.99 is 500min and unlimited text and data. I have the $69.99 EM+ with 1000m Unlimited text and data.

        • Anonymous

          I pay the same as he does.  I lowered my bill by $10 on each account by going on the 2Gb data plan.

          Where I was paying $70 before for unlimited everything, it’s now $60.  But add fees and taxes ($9 on each line) it goes to $70 OTD (out the door).

           Right but you have the NEW  EM+ plan, so you only get 500min 2gb capped and throttled. Im sayin he doesnt have an EM+ plan with Unlimited EVERYTHING, for 59.99, it doesnt exist new or old…

        • Jaygqitalia

          59.99 EM+ with unlimited everything ( 2gb then throttle obv ) lasted for 1 day 2 months ago .. Guess we were some of the lucky ones to get it. Before that i was paying 79.99 unlimited everything EM+ with no throttle.

    Hey David, why don’t you address the death grip problem of the sensation as well as the lag and 4G and connectivity issues ? People aught to know!

    • liveTexas

      Most modern smartphones have a ‘death grip’ to some degree (and very hard to accomplish on the S4G). The 4G issue is solved quite quickly with a short ‘code call’. The lag you Might experience is caused by TMo’s Bloatware. That’s it !

    • I just deathgripped my phone with a case on it.  NO loss in signal.  I also don’t have any kind of lag issue.  i did have a 2g connection issue but that was resolved following T-Mobile’s troubleshooting steps.  Why you be trollin?

    If this is true, looks like my 5-line family member plan will have to be kicked off T-Mobile’s network when I refuse to sign a 2 year contract with them. And I just wasted my cash on an HTC Sensation that I paid full price for to AVOID the contract. They will miss this long-time, good standing, “VoiceStream” member..

    So does this mean existing customers can keep the Classic plan as I will not be signing a 2-year?  Or will I be “converted” to a 2-year “Value” plan automatically when this goes into effect?

    • You can keep whatever it is that you have. T-Mobile does not/cannot just convert you. If you have EM+ they won’t just take it away. If you have a classic plan and are out of contract you can stay that way. I’ve had the same rate plan since 2008. (I’ve been with them longer, that’s just the last time I changed plans) I’ve NEVER been forced to do or sign anything I didn’t want to. #justsayin’

        Disagree.  See my other discussion about terms of service you agreed to.

        Basically, T-Mobile can terminate or adjust your plan for any reason, no reason, or ridiculous reason.

        T-Mobile is within its legal rights to contact any EM+ customer and say they are no longer an EM+ customer.

        The only option the customer has at that point is to agree to a two year deal or walk from T-Mobile.

        You enjoy a rate plan only because T-Mobile chooses not to fool with it.  It’s not because T-Mobile is contractually bound to honor an old plan.

        With the AT&T acquisition expect to see, IMHO, T-Mobile aggressively terminate all EM+ contracts, get everyone on a contract, and “not be sad” to see people who take exception to this to leave T-Mobile (mainly because AT&T does NOT want those customers).

        http://litigationuniverse.com/SampleWirelessTerminationRightsTMobile.pdf

        • I’ve had the same rate plan since 2008 (minutes anyway, data plan since early 2010) Yes they CAN change your plan. However, I’ve never been FORCED to change my grandfathered plan. If I want to keep what I have I can. Only if I’m upgrading my phone (on subsidy) would I be forced to upgrade to newer/current compatible data plan…….. Disagree all you want, I’ve NEVER seen T-Mo actually enforce a change with exception of the subsidized upgrade I mentioned above!!!!!!!!!!!

         What r people doin that they use 5gb or more a month on a smartphone? I have a G2 and I max out at about 800mb a month

        • Anonymous

          If one does only half of what the carriers advertise they should be doing, it’s quite easy to max out.

          For example, if you watch one hour of MSNBC every day (which if you don’t get it on cable is quite easy to do) that will eat up 200 MB to 400 MB each day.  So if one does not do anything else, except watch a TV program (a feature heavily advertised by the carriers) give it about two weeks at most to reach a 2 GB limit).

          Then if one listens to radio, plays a few YouTube videos, uploads a few videos, watches Net streams (say on CNN), etc. 2GB (and even 5GB) will be expended quickly.

          It would be one thing if those were exorbitant uses by customers, but watch the commercials.  Notice how many bandwidth sucking uses the carriers advertise.

          There’s no mystery to this, it’s a money-grab by carriers because data has saved their butts from bankruptcy.  It’s not any different than what the tobacco companies used to do.  While they know smoking kills, they nevertheless had ad campaigns making it look like smoking was the cool thing to do. They even went after the kids, to start them young (remember Joe Camel?)

          It’s quite the non sequiter:  encourage people to use data, then penalize them for doing exactly what the carriers told them to do (e.g., by some carriers setting artificially low data usage limits so the user incurs overage charges).

          Yeah, I know “people can use WiFi.”  But I don’t recall any of the ads on TV pushing WiFi so to limit data consumption.  Nope, carriers want people to use the 3G and 4G connection because there’s no money to be made if people use WiFi (and where’s the convenience in that anyway, being tethered to a home, office or Starbucks connection.  Carriers know that’s not convenient and would make their 3G/4G phones unnecessary.  That’s why they don’t advertise the WiFi handcuffs).

           Jarjon is right, ppl use way to much data. Thats why Tmo is stickin it to everyone with the new throtlin plans and higher prices.

        • jarjon76

          T-Mobile and the other carriers also see where the money is to be made, hence the higher data pricing. It was bound to happen–gone are the days of cheap data plans. No one should be surprised.

          Michael is correct.  
          I am sure there are lots of examples but my Motorola Charm has Slacker pre-installed (for my convenience I guess).  If I actually stream Slacker ONLY on my commute to work each day, I would easily gobble up 2GB a month.  So even if I use an application that they have installed on my phone in a moderate fashion, I can easily hit the limit.  I would not consider that to be a “data-hog” move on my part at all.

          In most cases, it’s data hogs who feel the need to live on their phones. I’m use my phone data on a daily basis and have gone over 1 GB once or twice. I’d have to try hard to go over 5GB.

          Do not offer “Unlimited” and then call me a data hog.  I agree with some arguments against tethering and such.  But watching a movie or 2 each month and listening to music is not an abusive activity.

          LOL… I thought you sounded like a T-Mobile employee.  Cheer leading the company line AND quick with insulting the customer, because you and the company believe it’s the customer who is the problem, not customer service.

          Keep it up, 2nd quarter results are coming out and we shall see if T-Mobile turning into a bunch of a…holes is an effective strategy. 

          My money is on it backfiring, this “the customer is never right” attitude.  And the gross incompetence, yeah, go ahead and keep thinking the world is great.  Come February most T-Mobile employees will be on the street and consumers will move on to a better company.

          I know I have.  I canceled one line and am only waiting to get my GF a phone so I can switch her line too.

          No need to listen to me, however, I was only with T-Mobile since 2003 and paid it about $30,000.  T-Mobile should concentrate on pleasing the more loyal customers.

          Bonus Tip: It’s not really cool to tell the Net 1) you are a T-Mobile employee; and 2) accuse customers of “porn hunting” all day.  That kind of arrogance is what caused Sprint to lose millions of customers.

    Doesnt really seem like anything good to me. I pay 59.99 for my EM+ plan with UNLIMITED everything ( 2gig high speed then trottled obv ) .. Why would i pay 59.99 for only 2000 mins, then have to add another 10 bux for data? Does that even include texting? .. Also , if the current unlimited plan is 79.99 on contract , just what exactly would be the difference between the 2 plans if they are both contracted and basically the same price?

    If this means I can lock in two lines, for two years, get a phone upgrade on both lines, pay $40 for unlimited talk on each line, and lower our data to another $10 off each line (meaning $118 OTD) I might be in because that less than what I would be paying on prepaid.

    I duly note that the “$40” talk would have to be part of a deal. I would be looking to simply call T-Mobile and say I want the $10 data plan added, discounted superphones in return for a two year agreement.

    With Q2 results coming out, if T-Mobile lost more customers (likely), look for Loyalty to cut some really sweet deals, IMHO.

    Now if T-Mobile can get rid of the a**hat employees posting in here, all would be well.

    • And the customers with attitudes to match….

    Bottom line- These prices are more expensive and you get less than the original Even More Plus plans (which is what I have and keeping!)

    Prices on the left are family- right side is individual lines…

    can’t help but think that TMO is doing all it can to lock-in existing and new subscribers and serve them on a platter in anticipation of the approval of the ATT acquisition.  i think the hearings and reviews are just for show as ATT has the regulators in their pockets (as reported by the managing editor of this site 4 days ago).

    we’re all going to be slaughtered and we can’t do anything about it.

  • Me too $59.99 all unlimited with 2GB cap though, but with a BB it never reaches near 500MB, getting grandfathered in is great. Never changing it until ATT says something IF they end up buying out TMO.
    The EIP is not worth it i think, cuz it adds at least $20 more to ur monthly bill, plus the fact that how many of a keep phone for 2 years now?

    • Hkhkjhkjh

      it’s not really a “cap” you still get data, just slower. I have a Sensation with the EM+ $59 unlimited-all plan and have never reached 1GB.. I have WiFi at home though…

      • Oh i c. Did u buy out right ur sensation? I’ve been thinking if doing it then its expensive to buy full price even on craigslist its not much difference. Second, I thought it might use a lot more data but if you use only 1GB (i’ll be using home wifi too) I might actually consider spending the money for full price.

        • Hkhkjhkjh

          if you plan to keep it > 1 year, yes even paying upfront for it makes sense. For 2 years you will save at least $600.. To me nothing beats no-contract.

    There is no 3gb data plan on the upcoming plan

    If these plan offerings are made; AND

    AT&T honors the T-Mobile contracts for each contract’s entire remaining term, post acquisition; AND

    People who buy T-Mobile  superphones will be able to trade them in for something just as nice,  that works on AT&T’s 3G & 4G network.  Then…

    This would be a good deal.

    And if all of the above are met, I would also say to delay signing on for another two years, as long as possible, so to take full advantage of your two year contract if you move to AT&T.

    • somebody sure pulled a 180….glad to see you get what I said initially…for the AVERAGE Joe…good deal

    I’m currently on EM+ for 59.99 for 500 mins/ unlim text/ I think 5mb data cap.  I purchased my Vibrant outright last July, my plan is wait until the AT&T acquisition is decided and then figure what to do at that point.  Will I need to sign up for a contact when these changes come into effect or this is only for new contracts?

      Sounds like you can keep your EM+ plan as it is, but for new sign up it will no longer be an option.  Make sure you want to stay on the 500 minute plan while you can, if you need more minutes in the future when EM+ is gone, you might not be able to change and stay with a non contract plan

    I buy my phones out right so I don’t get tied down with a contract. Am I understanding that it won’t matter either way. You want service, you get a contract?

      Right, but as long as you don’t change anything, you aren’t going to be re-upped.  You’ll be grandfathered into whatever you have.

      However, this looks enticing.  3G data for $15??  And say you cancel out after T-Mo merger (?).  Maybe they hit you w/ half of the ETF ($100).  So you’d probably still come out ahead based upon the monthly data savings.  Plus, you were able to get a new dual-core at the subsidized price.  No??

      This ain’t right, How can a company logic charging a customer full retail for a device and ask that they sign a 2yr contract? this is bogus news.

        I suggest doing away w/ a contract if u pay out right for ur phone. But if u r paying full price for ur phone on monthly installments a contract is warranted till after ur phone is payed off. So if decide to pay it off in 6 month at that point there’s no need for the contract..the contract should expire after the last payment for the phone. As for the price of the different data caps…they sound reasonable but for 49.99 you should have unlimited voice mins for individual plans.

    T-MOBILE READ! Okay, the webconnect sticks are great! but the plans are poor compared to sprint Wiimax. Why not make a unlimited no throttling plans on t-mobile? Make some good discounts. I live up where theres no DSL or Cable internet. So this is only my only option. I get throttled quick and get dissapointment!

  • Ah, T-Mobile’s going to (again) charge for air.  What does T-Mobile think charging for not getting a subsidy is supposed to make great?  I was really “like really” when AT&T required a two year contract on the first iPhone with no subsidy at all.  I guess it’s whatever the traffic will bear, eh?

    Hmmm, so me (a EM+ guy) could go in switch to contract now and get a new phone deal?

    • jomama

      no. you will probably pay a migration fee. the new plans are basically for new customers

  • Jaylynch22

    Wow! I got it fixed. This is great. I was trying to get it fixed for weeks and with app it was fixed in seconds. wonderful. 5 stars.

  • gambit

  • So when a telco says “value”, they mean for them, right? Always getting screwed…

    Hurry up and die TMO. Lets get a company that wants to be here and at least somewhat compete with the big boys!

      be quiet, you’re an idiot

    First of all, these plans are optional and you will not be required to change to them.  You can keep your current plan and even if at&t takes over T-Mobile, you will be grandfathered into the plan you keep when the merger goes through.  This is posted in the FAQs on T-Mobile.com.  These new plans are MUCH cheaper then the current plans and give you more choices of data, which is the reason they require a 2 year contract.  You sign a two year contract to change a plan for most major carriers anyway.  This is a 2 year contract for a cheaper plan..  for the idiots that means that if they give you a lower priced plan, you agree to stay with T-Mobile for those two years.  It’s obviously not a non-profit company, duh. 

    As far as the plans go, no you don’t get a discount on the phone and you still pay full price, but you get a cheaper plan.  Looks like these new plans (over the course of 2 years) will save you more money then you would if you got a discounted phone anyway.

    This is an awful idea. EM+ was a fustercluck, and it caused huge problems with customers when new devices came out / or the lost their old ones. No other American carrier rolls this way, and I think theres a good reason. good luck tmo…

  • BooLaalaaBooo

    Actually, T-mobile is the only major carrier to extend your contract whenever you change your rate plan. Know the facts before stating your opinion. Thanks

  • just recreated my current family plan, which is:
    750m
    unlim m2m, n&w
    line 1. android data / text plan
    line 2. nothing (grandma’s phone lol)

    using the new plans and the new plan isnt cheaper… extend contract for 2 years for nada. nope, i’m good. 

  • denise

    Wow, just called to make a rate plan change and I was informed that you have to sign up for 2 more years !! What the hell?
