Everything You Want To Know About T-Mobile’s Upcoming Classic/Value Plans


We can’t get enough of the new Classic/Value plan rollout information so we’re back with some more intel and price comparisons pitting T-Mobile against the competition. We’ve already seen a little bit of this in a post last week but this time it’s in color! T-Mobile continues to emphasize employee training by focusing on the benefits of each plan over the other in order to offer the customer the best possible solution and we can get on board with that. While we may not love the idea of a subsidy-less environment we can dig lower pricing. For some the Value Plan may entice them as they see a lack of data requirements being a standout reason to jump on board with the Value plans.

We don’t have to long to wait to see if T-Mobile is successful with the Value plan model as July 24th is right around the corner so fingers crossed they market it well and bring in the bacon!

    So are the “Classic” plans really changing anything?  Or is it just a new name?  I am currently EM+, but am looking to sign a contract to get the Sensation or Hercules… should I do it before the change or after? Will it make a difference?

    • edaddy

      I was thinking of signing a contract also for a Sensation (also currently EM+) but I can just a as easily put 200 or 250 down then interest free payments on the remainder.  Either way you have to pony up $200 minimum, so why sign a 2 year contract?

      • Anonymous

        But don’t the value plans require you to sign a 2 year contract, even though you don’t get the subsidy?

        I was planning on catching it on the midnight special :)

        or hopefully talking a T-Mobile rep into giving it to me for cheaper… I already got them down to BOGO (girlfriend wants one too)

    The even more plus plan is the only reason I’m a T-Mobile customer.  If I’m going to sign a contract, I might as well do it with a carrier that covers areas outside the interstate highway system.

    • Barker1964

      I have EM+ and was one of the lucky ones to get the $59.99 special that was available only for a few hours. I paid full price for my Sensation but I am going to sign up for the Value Plan to save the price for the next 2 years only because AT&T will have to honor the contract. No one knows what DEATH STAR will do with EM+ no contract customers. I worked for DEATH STAR and I don’t trust them one bit. A friend tht still works for them told me that how they will get people on new contracts is that if you want a phone with a discount they wii make you give up your current plan in favor for one of theirs they will never get me because fro the past 8 years I have always bought my phones at full price so no contract for me. “Death Star has to fail it must” (In Yoda’s voice) 

      • Nate34

        I have exactly the same plan EM+ $59.99 unlimited-all and paid full for the Sensation. Don’t jump into the Value Plan yet, wait as much as you can, then if the merge actually *happens*, they (ATT) will have to honor it longer.. enjoy your freedom!

  • Noor Mahmoud

    Can someone help me? Because I am extremely confused. How come it says that the data is unlimited, then it gives options for different costs for tiers of data? Like wth t-mobile, how is it unlimited if you get slowed down to abysmal speeds, lower than the pits of hell, when you reach 200mb, 2gb, 5gb, 10gb… 

    • SuperNova

      It may be a d!ckish move on tmobile’s part but realistically it saves the customer money.  I mean with the new plans where its 5 bucks for 200 mbs of  4G then once you are out of the 200 mbs you dont lose your data in an emergency you have it.  it may be as you said ‘slowed down to abysmal speeds’ it is still a great value at lower prices.  just my opinion

  • greenbean

    Quick question. I’m planning on moving from att (finally out of contract) to T-mobile. I’m literally just waiting for a great deal (missed the midnight special last week).

    I’m reading about the contract changes and I’m wondering if there is value in buying the 4 phones (brand new service lines) now and getting the “Even More” plan with the subsidies of the phones. Then when the value plans come out (in a few weeks) to switch over to the value plan. Would I keep the subsidy? I’m not seeing anything on these flyers that say I would have to pay a fee.

    Thanks

    • Tmobile

      You would have to pay a migration fee depending on how long you have been in contract. $0-$200. I’m not sure if it is per line or total.

    • Khgkhgcv

       u would not get the subsidy if u choose the value plan and btw if the merger goes thru in less than a year you end up back at ma bell

    With plans like the value plan it’s time we start seeing the real prices of these phones–and not the inflated prices that are kept high by 2-year contracts. With phones like the Motorola Triumph coming out at $300, here’s hoping this is the beginning of some technology-induced price falling.

    OK, maybe the Sensation is a $400 phone, but we should be seeing some non-subsidized quality sub-$200 phones given the falling costs brought on by mass production and technology

    Just tried twice (unsuccessfully) to get some questions answered about the classic and value plans,  as I am currently able to do a full discount upgrade (would like to get the sensation) and both times (611 and live customer chat) I was rebuffed. Apparently T mobile customer reps are not authorized at this point to discuss the plans, and the reps did not know if they would receive “clearance” to answer any questions before the 24th. 

    • theWayofThings

      Probably because the reps haven’t been trained on it yet… usually they don’t get official training on plans until within a week of the release date, up until then any discussion would be speculative and they are not supposed to do that…

        Thanks for the clarification.  Quick question, If you wanted the sensation as your next phone, and were offered the phone for 199 w/o mail in rebate, with a plan that consisted of unlimited mins, text and 5GB for 79.99 would you say this was a good deal?

        • Khgkhgcv

          the $79.99 plan is only 2gb of data not 5 unless they offered u a plan thru an outbound loyalty call or u called and were offered a discount

        • http://profiles.google.com/antoniothegreat Al L

          Yes the 5gb was offered and noted to my account through the loyalty/retention dept. I will probably get the sensation through wirefly as they are charging only 129 for new customers and customers eligible for upgrade, but I will wait a little while longer to see if there are any price drops online.

    What is this about a $200 migration fee for people on grandfathered plans to a Value plan (Where they’d have to pay full price for a phone?)…why would they pay an additional $200?  And interesting their comparison chart, doesnt compare to those carriers that are cheaper…Boost for example which offers $50 unlimited talk/text/web for $50 with shrinkage..where after 18 mos.., you are down to a $35 monthly charge.  And others like Virgin Mobile or Walmart Family Mobile, Straight Talk etc…I always thought one of the advantages of the larger companies like Tmob was the phone subsidies…if youre going to pay full price for the phone anyway, go with a smaller plan that is cheaper….or if youre going to pay, then pay for an iphone.  Really disappointed with Tmob…not liking this new strategy at all

      Well looks like I will be switching from T-Mobile to Metro PCS, as my test has been going well for the past few weeks. (I have two WiFi tablets, an ASUS Transformer and Acer A500.  We will be using those for multi-media viewing, everything we have been using our superphones to view.)

      As nice as my Sensation is and as much as I have been drooling over the upcoming SGS II, I’m not willing to pay $600 a year for the privilege, plus the cost of the phones, that I have to pay full retail for, even under these new T-Mobile plans.

      Today on Craig’s List I was able to get another NIB (new in box) Samsung Indulge, for $230.  I got the other Indulge NIB a few weeks back for $200. (The Samsung Indulge is a very nice smartphone, IMHO the nicest prepaid phone on the market.  It’s similar to the MyTouch Slide in specs and is a 4G LTE device.)

      http://www.phonedog.com/2011/02/24/samsung-galaxy-indulge-4g-review-by-sydney/

      Relevant to T-Mobile’s pricing, Metro PCS has family plan pricing too.  It results in a monthly $5 discount per line.  For two lines, unlimited everything I will be paying $90 total, taxes and fees included (Metro does not
      advertise base plans and then say “taxes and fees additional.”  It’s
      advertised prices are out the door, bottom line).

      $90 for unlimited web, talk and text, instead of $140 monthly to T-Mobile.  That’s a savings of $600 annually. IMHO that’s some serious savings.  Now we know why T-Mobile did not include prepaids like Boost Mobile, Metro PCS and others on these comparison charts. 

      Note:  I had trouble activating the phone I got today.  The two times I called today the Metro CSRs  were courteous and professional.  On the two calls they spent about 90 minutes to get things working.  I have heard horror stories about Metro’s customer service, but the two calls today left me with a good impression.

      • callmeotter

        Im just afraid of MetroPCS coverage and inability to get a real live employee or company store where I could get a temporary replacement phone if my phone fails.  Many people I know who tried MetroPCS told me to be wary of all the fine print and their coverage areas or lack t hereof…

        The whole idea of these non contract plans – where you purchase the phone for full value – is a shell game in my view.  (Unless you get a cheap phone on ebay or something)…Because if you’re paying 200+ for a new phone…if you end up switching carriers after 6 months, thats basically your cancellation fee….until we have a system where you buy a phone and can use that ON ANY CARRIER…Thats what we should have for real consumer freedom.  Let customers buy the phone they want and be able to use it on whatever carrier they want.

    What I want to know is if you get one of these new tiered plans. What happens if the merger goes through? Will we loose our unlimited throttle data and go to AT&T overage fees? Since what we are paying for is the data cap. Or will they honor the unlimited data and follow after the cap with throttling? No tier plan for me until it’s more clear what AT&T will do with customers with this plan. I’ll keep my unlimited data plan.

  • DADDY

    IM A HAPPY CAMPER LOL!

    I just checked my data usage for the past 5 months and i never hit more than 1GB of data. With that said, the value plan $59.99 unlimited with 2GB data will save me approximately $15 a month. YESSSSSSSSSSSS! 

    With all the bells and whistles, I cant wait to have my monthly bill in 2 digits instead of 3. LOL!!!

  • OKDave

    I’m cautiously optimistic that this will be a huge money saver for us. Five lines with two separate data plans runs about $140/mo, but with this plan, we’ll go to the base $79.98 plan plus 3 lines @ $5/ea, for a total of $94.98/mo, and we’ve yet to use more than .4 GB of data per month. Sure hope I’m analyzing that correctly! I called TMO the other day about these plans and the Customer Care rep tried to sign me up to the current “alternative” plan until she realized I was talking about something she didn’t know about. LOL…

    • bob

    Did anyone catch the part about “Retailers are free to price devices at any price in their sole discretion”?  I suspect you’d have to pay for the phone up front, but if someone like WalMart took advantage of their volume purchase ability they might be able to tie in a good deal on the phone with this plan.

    • tmobile

      Cost-co always has the best discount on phones, so I am betting it will still seem subsidized if you shop at cost-co.

    • Vipstyle86

      WalMart is more of a third party and has always been able to make their own prices, haven’t you seen some for one cent? They have the cheapest priced phones for all companies they carry for. Its a marketing ploy for them. They see it as a win win, not only are you gonna get a phone through them but what are the chances you also don’t leave the store with something else? They make up the money by selling more to you. I used to work for AT&T and every time a customer got a phone with WalMart, if any changes dealing with the phone had to be made, it had to be dealt with WalMart.

    what doesn’t make any sense to me as that these new plans are on contract only and they are doing away with monthly pre-pay. the contracts are only there to lock you into paying the monthly payments on an expensive phone… OK.. so why  doesnt the contract just end when you pay it off…???  I wont mind paying 450 upfront for the new mytouch4g phone..  does that mean I still need to sign contract..? for what reason..? yea..i might save 10 or 15 bux a month in comparison, but if i lose my job in a cpl months, my 4g phone service will be the first to go.  im going up there now to get a sim card with the 70$ monthly prepay 4g plan (albeit a 2g limit), then ill just wait til the 27th to install it.

        • Bilbo Baskins

          The Monthly 4G (no annual-contract prepaid) is $50 Unlimited Talk Text Web (1st 100MB is 4G) + $70 Unlimited Talk Text Web (2GB Web) …. So, if you still looking for EM+ like plans and don’t want to lock into a contract, purchase a handset full price (or street value via craigslist), i would suggest going to this …  anyway it go, THEY ARE ALL VALUE PLANS!!   =)  

        • Dude Lebowski

          Actually, the $70 Monthly 4G plan is a 5GB data cap, they changed it back in May. I’m on this plan using a Xperia Play but I may consider switching to Value family plan with my fiance who’s on the $50 monthly 4G plan.

    Bah. These plans suck. No “value” in them at all compared to EM+, and you get locked in for two years besides. I’m not eager to become an NSAT&T customer, thank you…

    • Vlad2277

      Value plans are much cheaper then em+, which I have right now.
      I pay $25 for unlimited data, I use internet, email a lot, but it never gets close to 2 gb, which on new plan costs only $10. Also unlimited text costs $5 on new value plan, instead of $10 on em+.
      And if you have family with multiple lines, you can save even more. It’s cheaper now to just have unlimited cell, then both mobile & home line.
      I don’t understand why contract scares so many people. T-Mobile service is much cheaper then all other main companies, so what are you people talking about just dropping you service and switching.
      Plus if you get value, it will pay for your new phone in full and more over 2 year contract and you not under any obligation to order data not text unlike on classic plans.

      • Senor Chang

        Truthfully, because contracts are POINTLESS.  The only people that actually save money at any time are the ones who don’t have a new phone, or at least buy a new phone outright and pay in full for it.

        Otherwise… no matter how you slice it up… A contracted plan + cost of phone = Same no matter what you do.  Contracts are just a grand way of making people THINK they’ve gained something when they’ve gained nothing but an obligation.

    • Senor Chang

      I am one of the big wavers of the ‘NO CONTRACT’ flag, but even I’m a bit wooed by these plans.  In my situation, I would actually save $15 a month, gain an extra 250 talk minutes (not like I really need it) and have data on 2 lines rather than one.

      me right now:
      No contract, 750 minutes and Unlimited text for 2 lines ($70) + $25 data plan for one line = $95/mo

      value plan:
      1,000 minutes, unlimited text, + 2GB data plan for 2 lines = $80

      If there was EVER a legit reason to sign a contract, it’s to save money on the plans, not the stupid phones.  

      They give you a discount on the phone but then the plans are higher anyway which means you pay for the phone over the course of the contract.  Makes no damn sense.

      Now, I can see if you’re solely interested in getting a new phone, and you split the payments for the phone out… then yeah, its about equal.
      But amazingly enough, some of us have phones that are totally paid for and don’t need to do a payment plan.

    These plans should have came out years ago MINUS Flexpay + Even More Plus.  Just hope its not too late…and to be honest the FAM Plan is almost close to my Employee plan (-30)   Good job!

    I’m confused by the add-a-lines. I’m trying to figure out the cost of each additional line on the unlimited family plan. (What the heck does PXADD500+UNLIM mean anyway?) Would it be:

    $25 unlim minutes
    $5 unlim texts
    $10 2gb internet
    =$40 total for unlim everything (2gb intnernet)?

    So for the unlimited family value plan where everyone has unlim talk/txts/internet (2gb) the total cost before taxes would be: $220 (100 + 40*3)? If so, that’s too crazy.

    • Vlad2277

      Your reasoning was almost correct. $40 is for unlimited voice,text, and data-2gb in family plan.
      But $100 already gives you all of that for 2 lines.
      So for 3 it will be $140+all taxes of course.

      • steve w

        Thanks Vlad, I forgot to mention that I was looking at the full 5 lines (hence the 40*3)

        • Vlad

          Then if you talking about all 5 lines with all unlimited services, then $220 is good price, don’t you think so?
          I’m waiting for this plan myself…Will safe money, and even if I buy new phone it will still safe more then paying higher price for service.
          Right now I have EM+, 3 lines, 2 lines call the most, 1 line doesn’t call much to non T-mobile, since mobile to mobile is still unlimited anyway.
          So for me 2 unlimited, 1-500min for $5, plus data+text on only 1 line, comes to even more saving over classic, then I’m already saving right now…

        • steve w

          Yeah, when I said “that’s too crazy,” I meant too crazy [good]. I’m ready to pay $200 cancellation fees on every line even! But we’ll see what the deal is come Sunday.

        • Vlad2277

          Yes, I think the deal is pretty good, I can have all unlimited plan for less money then I now pay for 1500min family on em+

    sorry ill stick with sprint and un-limited un-throttled data!

    • Vlad2277

      with sprint prices, you can also have unlimited data, but T-Mobile’s network is faster, plus most people will never use more then 2gb
      It’s really interesting that most people who spend days and night un pure t-mobile news site are not even t-mobile customers

      • Lolo

        they got the 200MB 2GB 5GB….ect cuz they kno people be using the data to video chat…so if u do…thats basiclly that makes up to 2GB or more…tmobile is smart.
