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.

    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).

          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.

        • None

          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.

    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.

  • http://twitter.com/orchlonb Orchlon Bold

    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

  • Anonymous

    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.

    • Girth Brooks

      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

      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.

        you can get on the month to month plan or the prepaid you dont have to get the plans they are “introducing” here

    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?

    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

  • gambit

    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

    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…

    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?
