Breakdown of New Classic and Value Plans!

I know we already told you about the new classic and value rate plans that are going into effect on July 24th, but now we have a great breakdown of what’s to come.  In the pictures below you will be able to see what the new plans will look like and see what the new plans will save you, and it looks like quite a bit in most cases.  Give it a look and follow the breakdown for more information.  Of course, as always, leave your thoughts in the comments!

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

    Is there a migration fee if you go from one VALUE plan to another VALUE plan? i.e (500 minutes to 1000 minutes)

  • Jayboi

    So no free phones or discounted prices + 2yr contract ?
    This is complete bs.

    • Alysjame

      Yes there is on the”classic” plans just not the “valued” plans

    The graphic says 2 lines for 69.98 for 2000 minutes, but the article says 59.99 plus $5 add a line.

    Am I reading it wrong, or is there a mistake?

  • TheHonestyCorner

    I think these new plans are ridiculous.  I understand contracts when providers discount the phones – that way they can recoup the discounted cost of the phones and the customer can enter into an expensive contract for less initial outlay.

    But if there is no discounted phone, it is completely nonsense to require a contract.  Simply offer a great product with great service at a great price, and people will WANT to stay with your business.  Requiring a contract simply says that you know another firm is going to offer something better, and so you are trying to get people without foresight to lock into a commitment to do business with you.  If you have the best product, you don’t need a contract locking your customers into purchasing your product.

    I am guessing that this whole thing is a desperate attempt to generate contract numbers for some not-publicly-disclosed objective, as opposed to providing customers what they really want.  If it was about providing customers what they really want, they would just provide a great product, and customers would flock to it without the need for any contracts.

  • V7bikerack

    So how much is the value unlimited plan?

    This is merely an attempt to build up customer base before the buyout. The only offer of a two year contact is an insurance policy that ATT cannot force you right away into one of their expensive plans, but must honor the previous contract. Those no contract or out of contract people are vulnerable.

  • theWayofThings

    I think it all boils down to T-mobile could offer unlimited everything, txt, mms, data, min, etc for 10 bucks a month, and there would still be at least half a dozen people on here finding something to bitch about it…

    Maybe this is the start of a trend. Let’s look at this logically. As others have pointed out, a contract phone was always mandated to subsidize the cost of phones, but if there is one thing we know about technology is that when an item becomes a commodity–as cell phones are certainly becoming–they get better and cheaper.

    It is impossible to justify the costs of these phones as they are currently listed. We know it and the cellphone carriers know it. The prices have been kept artificially high by contracts justified by subsidization. With brand new “hot” phones being discounted to $0 at release the downword price of phones is putting market pressure on the carriers to a) find revenue and b) guarantee revenue.

    What better way than lengthy contracts with no benefit other than a perceived low price — I say perceived because the service should also be falling. Handsets are too high and so are services. High prices could be justified when carriers were rolling out their services–the cost of cell tower location was a driving force of the carriers’ costs. Moving from 3g to 4g, is simply a technology implementation and as already stated, the cost of technology is always falling.

    Cellphone carriers need contracts…

    There was an interesting story on the local news here in San Francisco.

    It said that in this tanked economy, where people don’t have money to spend on perceived extras, that people are cutting back or giving up: the morning Starbucks coffee, taking lunch to work rather than eating out, going to movies, etc.

    The story said two things people appear unwilling to curb:  1) cars; and 2) “their cell phones.”

  • Ziggy123

    The best plan (value wise) in my opinion is T-Mobile’s prepaid monthly 1500 (talk + text) + 30MB data plan for $30 (no taxes or fees!).  you get 1500 ‘credits’ that can be used towards talk or text (1min or 1 txt = 1credit).  The 30 MB of data is small, but if you are like me and only check your email (to and from work), sync your calendar (twice daily) and occasionally pull up directions even 10MB is enough.

    But i understand this is not for you power users out there.

    You know, I had this big old bitch-fest of a post planned out, but then I realized…. why bother? You see, I’m already under contract, since late 2009. I don’t plan on leaving T-Mobile (IMO, we still have the best Android phones), and now we’re going to have the best non-prepaid rate plans. I plan on buying an HTC Sensation outright(no EIP), getting a 49.99 “Value” plan and yes, signing a contract. I can’t find a way that being under a contract hurts me. At least this way, after the ATT buyout, ATT legally has to keep me on my rate plan till the contract expires.

    • calvin

      So are you going to be paying for the sensation full price upfront or over months?

  • CRT24

    It really all boils down to this with these new plans…..T-Mobile still has the best contracted plans that have phone discounts and these new “value” plans are even priced lower than the old em+ plans with the only difference being that there is a 2 year contract. So you can either use your own phone or buy one from T-Mobile at full cost and even have the option of paying it out with no interest, or still get a discount on a handset. Regardless of which of these plans you choose you will be getting the best rate of any of the 4 major carriers and none of them have no contract options for family plans either. So you can either get a very good price on your family plan with T-Mobile or if you don’t want a contract there are still very good pre paid options…..either way you are getting a much better value than the other carriers.

      • CRT24

        It’s good because…..well it is. Why do you keep asking what plan you should go on but then bash people who say good things about the company. If you dont think the things that I am saying are correct then go get service with some other company…..you have already said you can’t afford a more expensive plan so good luck finding a plan elsewhere that is even close to the same price as what you are paying. I don’t agree with everything my current employer does because Lord knows if the business was run correctly then it wouldn’t be in the tenuous position it is now but that doesn’t change the fact that T-Mobile offers the best value so if you disagree with that then get service elsewhere.

        Oh, Christ. In case you haven’t figured it out, a number of commenters on this blog are T-Mobile employees, current and former. Which stands to reason, after all, it’s a blog about T-Mobile products and services. 

        Now, given that, since you seem to have some questions about what direction you should go with your rate plan, you might try listening to the people who might know a thing or two about that. (T-Mobile employees)

        Lol, either ways, it’s people like you that make me glad I do something else for a living now.

      They are not priced lower, for one thing the 500 min unlimited text and data is 59.99 with EM+ whereas the same plan  is 10 bucks more on the new savings plan, and you have to sign up for a 2 year contract with a maximum 300 bucks EFT.

      • Jaygqitalia

        Well for the same price u get unlimited mins instead of 500. I pay this price now for unlimited everything em+ plan, so im either keepin what i got, or jumping on value to get a new phone cheaper upfront. Havent decided yet.

        Oh really? If you look again you will see that the 500 minute talk, unl text, and 2gb of web is 49.99. Isn’t 49.99 less than 59.99???

          The current 500 min unlimited text and web (5 gb before throttle) is 59.99, that same plan is 10 dollars more on the new savings plan, and you don’t have to sign a two year contract, while still paying full price for the phone.

    • CRT24

      You can still get a dicount in the phone if you choose one of the current plans that will still be available…..these other plans are at a lower price which will save you money over the 2 year contract…..how much will depend on the phone you choose.

      • Anonymous

        We need to do the math looking at specific phones involved to know whether it saves money compared to the classic plans factoring in the additional payments for the phone.  The last time I compared using the actual phones my family has across four lines, over the two year term we were better off taking the discounts.  If you aren’t looking at high end phones you can get the phones cheaper through somewhere like Boost or Virgin Mobile without being tied into a two year commitment.  But it’s definitely a step in the right direction, and an exciting enough change I’m breaking out the spreadsheets to see if it’s worth redoing my own contracts

          Not always.  Depends on how many minutes you use, what data plan you need, what phones you select, and a host of other factors.  No question you’re getting the best deal of the majors.  Whether it’s the absolute minimum you can be paying and still get what you need depends on your usage profile.

    200mb or $30 unlimited no $10 data on this cos they say its grand
    fathered plan. if I want the $10 data now, they are saying I will have 
    to switch to  different plan which then i can save on the data on my
    lines but will forfeit my free add a line fees for 3 lines.

    from 2012, my plan will cost me $30 more  for 3 add a line fees.
    becos
    of 3 add a line fees but I can get the $10  200mb data.  I have andriod
    phones  on my lines but cant  afford the  $30  data, I need the 200mb

    So lets say you want a sensation 4g or g2x, would it be cheaper to go with the value or the classic plan?

    • CRT24

      Using the 1000 minute plans as an example….on the classic plan with talk, text, and 2gb web for both lines then your plan cost would be $120.00/mo plus 400.00 for 2 sensations after rebate for a total 24 month cost of $3280.00. On the value plan you would pay the same up front price for the phones and have 30.00/month in payments making your cost including phone payments 110.00/mo for a total 24 month cost of 3140.00 including the upfront phone cost…..again the difference will vary with phone cost.

  • OKDave

    Anyone have any insights on how they compute the migration fee from an existing contract? 

    I have five phones on a Family Time 700 plan, with three of those phones coming off contract in the next month. I had thought about going month-to-month until the Hercules comes out, but if I go value, I’m paying full price (close to $500-$600) for the phone alone, which all-but defeats the purpose of the lower rate phone. 

  • Aztater7

    How do these new plans work if you don’t want to get a new phone? Is it just like any new plan.

    Save up the money, buy the phone at full price and go prepaid. It will Still will be cheaper in the long run…

    When you say “No web features are required for value plans,” does this mean I can avoid having to get the data packages when I buy a smartphone on one of these value plans?

    • CRT24

      Correct, you are not required to have a data plan since you are buying the phone at full cost…..not sure why you would want to have a smart phone without some mobile data capabilities but it is not required on the value plans.

      • Michael Le Gere

        I can understand it depending on where one may live.  If you live in a place like Seattle or NYC, I actually see it as a huge benefit to avoid paying the internet fee.  There are nearly 10+ WiFi spots available at any one time, just as you make your way through town, save the spots, and your phone will automatically connect to them as you live your daily life.

        It would probably be beneficial to add the very small 200MB plan as a backup for rare occasions.  For 5 dollars it is totally worth it…But otherwise that is ideal I think.  I could see myself doing that.  For now I live in SLC, which is still more or less a drive here, drive there type of town not quite blanketed in WiFi as other cities.

      It does not “include” the free WiFi calling but there is a free WiFi calling feature that can be added, just ask that it be added to your plan….so you can call over WiFi but it still does use your minutes when on WiFi.

        Also, I have 8 months left on my contract. Do I have to pay any migration fee to new plans?

          Sorry I should have clarified…..you can do WiFi calling without the feature but that will use your minutes but as long as you have the correct feature then the calling is unlimited over WiFi and I’m sure it will be available with the new plans……as far as the migration fee goes, I am not sure that has been published yet but it will depend on how long you have left on your contract..

    This is very tempting. Having worked in the cell phone industry for so long, and getting basically free phones and phone service, when I left, it was a shock having to pay for my phone service and phone! Haha…so once that got old (not even a year!) I cancelled my contract and even paid nearly 900 dollars in ETF fees earlier this year…

    I’ve been on Virgin Mobile rocking 25 dollars a month on the Android Optimus.  Hasn’t done me wrong except slower tethering on my laptop…But now that Virgin is going to 35 dollars a month, I see the 49 dollars 500 minutes/text/2GB internet very appealing.  As long as the internet is no overage and only throttled speeds.

    I just realized that they didn’t say anything about offer unlimited nights and weekend with this plan? didn’t see it anywhere on the pics…

    so it’s 1k or 2k any time mins… oppose to the unlimited mins which doesn’t matter in this case…

    so say i am not under contract now and I want to get a g2x on july 24th. Could i change to the 1000 min family plan plus unlimited text and 200 mb data for one line and still get the phone for the $199 price?

    all you guys are stupid. wait till tmobile releases it to the public. it will have more information and it will all be clearer for everyone to understand. Dont get your panties in a twist and wait the week till its in effect and then call a rep and get all your questions answered.

    i have an off contract blackberry data only plan.  if i want to switch to a value plan without upgrading my phone, will i be required to sign a 2yr agreement just for switching? i understand that there is no migration fee but i will not switch if they put me back on contract.
