T-Mobile’s Best Rate Plan Ever?


We’ve been receiving wind of this Value Plan dedicated page all day and at first glance it does appear to be quite the offering if you haven’t been keeping up with the new Value Plans: two lines for $49.99 each totaling $99.98 (like the math we did there) with add a lines costing $15 for 500 minutes. So what’s the catch as this plan seems almost to good to be true? Well it’s best to make sure you read all of the terms and conditions in case you are subject to a migration fee upon switching from an alternative T-Mobile plan with T-Mobile emphasizing that “you may be unable to switch to some plans.” We aren’t sure if they are referring to a switch to this plan or a switch away from this plan so we highly recommend asking some poignant questions at your local store before signing on the dotted line.

Possible fees aside this is an excellent deal with up to 2 GB’s of high-speed data at your disposal and just $15 add a lines? Sign us up.

Check out all the details below!

    its no special its the value plan. 79.99 gives you unlimited talk and text and $10 each line for 2 gb of data. its called bundling and it works.

    the bad part of this plan you gotta buy the phone outright , or if you are in current contract depending how many days remaining on your contract they’ll charge you a “migration” fee up to $200 per line

    In my opinion this is not a good price!

    • zacamandapio

      I believe it’s a good price.  I switched and kept my phone.  I always but phones outright anyways.  I don’t care about the price of the phone (ebay, craigslist or tmobile store).  I care of how much goes out every month ($99.98 + tax + fees + features, etc, etc).

    Can I switch to that plan if I’m currently on anther one?

    • joey

      yes but they’ll charge you a migration fee depending on how many days you got left on your contract

    • zacamandapio

      You may.  To avoid any fees you have to be “out of contract” (ex. even more plus or an old plan).

  • Me

    if you are in contract you may have to pay a migration fee… however it may work out cheaper over 2 years still. go to a t-mobile store and have them show you the price difference and see if it works for you

  • Cchrono

    This is those value plans everybody complained about

    • zacamandapio

      Correct. 
      The only downside is the contract part.  Other than that it’s a great price for two lines and the 3rd, 4th & 5th line.

  • CRT24

    This is the unlimited value plan folks…..the 2 lines at 49.99 each are talk/text/2gb web and the additional lines are 5.00 for 500 daytime minutes and 10.00 for 2gb web for the 15.00 additional lines.

      Or remove it after.
      Those plans have texting as a feature. But if you log into my.tmobile.com you will see that they simply just added the texting feature, so you can take it off if you want (I’ve never tried it since I and everyone else on the plan actually text).

      They do that because of the special pricing of the plan. 
      A similar plan with the same features and discounted phone will be a lot more expensive (on Tmobile).  But still way cheaper than a different company (ex. At&t, Verizon).
      Two lines unlimited everything = 99.98.
      500 min add a line and unlimited talk & text = $15
      Add a line unlimited everything = $25

      That’s why.

      I have the same question, the whole idea about the value plans was that you did not get subsidized equipment and you did not have a contract.

    Value plans were just made to screw at&t over after buyout. the math works out where if you get a discount on the phone or pay full price with a value plan that you pay the same for 20 months. After 20 months with value plans you can save anywhere from 5 to 15 a month per line.

      This is because your CURRENT monthly rate pays for the DISCOUNTS you received on phones.  The plan you want to switch to provides NO DISCOUNTS on phones.  Hence, the migration fee to make up for the discounts you received.

      You cant switch to value plans because you received a discount in your recent upgrade. This will mean you will double dip. Discount in monthly bill and on top of that getting away with discounted phones. Cant have both. The value plan offer is a great idea but only for new costumers or people that are out of contract. because you can purchase a phone at full retail price and have tmobile put it in installment plans for 20 months. Thats $15 dollars extra a month. or if u have the money just pay for the whole thing on the spot. And you can also get Coorporate discount if you have any.

  • Anonymous

    So I’m guessing if you recently re-upped and got discounts on Sensations (for 200) or G2x’s (for free or 199) you dont qualify for this plan?

      I’ll tell you exactly why, it’s cheaper!  Do the math.  Take the Sensation 4G as an example on an unlimited plan with 2gb data.  On classic plan you pay $200 for phone plus 24 months @ $80 which comes to $2120.  On value plan you pay $500 for phone plus 24 months @ $60 which comes to $1940.  You save $180 by buying the phone yourself instead of subsidizing it!

          Well customers love to throw it around, as if it’s a big deal. In T-Mobile’s POV, we gave you service, and you paid us in exchange for that service. I’ve worked for several big companies including T-Mobile at one point, and people threw it around because they assumed, it was a magic password for free or discounted stuff “Well, I’ve only been a customer for 6 years, I deserve free top of the line phones, with free cases, and super discounted bills, because I’ve been LOYAL.” Seriously, I no longer work for Magenta, but I still have 4 lines with them, because I’ve always been happy with service, and they’re priced accordingly. Common sense is, that companies make more money on new lines, they’re going to throw bigger deals to newbies, so If I really want a deal, I switch to a new carrier. Simple.

  • Gerryf19

    People keep saying these are just the value plans, but they are not.  The value plan was (I think) slightly higher for the first two two lines, plus $25 for the additional lines.  Now the extra lines are $15….I think this is just a promotion on the value plan, and likely temporary.   Still, phones are too expensive. I’ve said it before and I will say it again–carriers are pumping the price of these phones to justify termed contracts. The iphone, the most expensive phone to make, has about $220 in parts in it. Add labor and the are still making a 100 percent profit…

    • CRT24

      T-Mobile only has 2 types of.contracted plans…..classic and value. This IS the value plan and the 15.00 once again is for a 500 minute additional line with 2gb data. The 25.00 additional line on the value is for unlimited minutes without data……it is not a promotion and it is not temporary….IT IS THE VALUE PLAN!

      • LC

        You’re spot on. This is the value plan without the cost of phones factored in for any of the lines. They’ve only just started advertising forthem even though they launched on the 24th because they wanted a soft launch to work out the systems before it was more heavily advertised.

        But again. This is the value plan. Two lines, unlimited talk text and 2gb high speed data

        The contractual obligation is that you have to stay with the company for 2 yrs. Nowhere does it say that you have to stay on the same plan for the period of the contract….

        • Nightnighttmobs

          yea it doesnt say you can change to another plan without stipulation… its a double edged sword greedy.

        • Dominic

          No they said you have to stay on the regular plans if you got a discount on a phone.  If you want to switch to a plan that does not give a discount on a phone then you have to break the previous contract where you received a discount.  It’s very simple.  That’s why Even More Plus customers can move over, without any migration fee, if they want.

    It is a lie,  
    i was told it is for 200 mg not 2gb  of unlimited data for the 1st 2 lines. 
    also it is $10.00 per line just for 500 min talk & unlimited text.  Must pay addtnl $10.00 per line for data. 
    they said for 5 lines my total inc taxes would be over $216.00  
    The rep told me w/ my disct after taxes would be $125.00!!!  so when i called to day to make sure that was the case, they were surprised and said oh no.  ur total is $216.00 or more.

    Just to throw this in, I changed my contract to add unlimited messaging a few months back which doesn’t coincide with my phones running out of contract (in the next 2 months-all 3 phones), yet i would have to pay $800 to switch. 
    I am not asking for a free phone, I just want the cheaper plan. Something is not right.

    • DrEldeburg

      you might want to check again, cause last time I checked 3 phones at 200 bucks each for a termination fee doesnt equal 800, not to mention if you have a couple months left, you shouldnt even have to worry about it

  • This is no promo; it’s a gimmick. It’s the 500 ATM add-a-line for unlimited Family Value for $5 + $10 for the 2GB data.

    When I ask the CSRs how much a 500 ATM additional line is
    on that plan, they swear up and down that it’s $15. When I ask
    them why on the website it says that it’s $5.00 and $25, they will
    not admit that either of those options are available and that I need to
    come into the store and they’ll explain it to me.

    So my guess is that the CSRs are trying to shove customers away from the
    talk-only add-a-line option and pretend that they can only get an
    additional line with 500 ATM that has data included.

    And the reasons, of course, are ARPU and higher commissions.

    • Dominic

      You sure it’s higher commissions or if you drop in a plan then the rep takes a negative hit for losing the company money and they’re required to meet a certain amount per month, from net adds and removals.  I’m saying your wrong and I’m right.

      ya, i wonder where you are getting that info, because the “migration fee” you refer to was something long and gone from the old even more plus plans, and the migration fee was there in place of the termination fee. I think you should make sure that when you pick up your phone you are calling tmobile and not the voices in your head.

        They do have two other plans that offer a phone subsidy and upgrade, the Individual Class Plans, and their Family Plans, which are the more expensive ones, as many want a new phone, and often. The Value Plans, that have been discussed on this thread, are lower priced and would give a necessary break  to those that already own their phones, or want to purchase new ones outright.

  • I agree with most this offer according to commercials and the web does not explicitly state “you must buy the phone at full price”.  In fact its deceitful. I hate AT&T but quite honestly you may as well switch to their $49.99 prepaid plan and buy the phone out right.  You get the same deal and you don’t have to sign a contract.  Plus they have albeit a limited selection of Smartphones right now but for someone who is truly value conscious why in the world would you sign a contract? I see more and more flocking from T-Mobile in the future, this is not a deal.

  • nenes78

    Well I jumped right on this. I was even more plus paying $140 a month (1500 minute plan 5 lines 3 with data and 1 an @home), with this plan I get $130 a month (unlimited 1st two lines, 3 add a line at $5 /500 min,unlimited text each and $10 data for an extra phone) then i get my AAA discount of 15% so it knocks down the monthly to $110. If you have @home it is no longer offered so $5 for 500 min (we use around 60-70 min a month on it) or pay $25 for unlimited. Im saving $30 a month so that’s $360. As an even more plus customer I am used to buying phones outright. When we upgrade I sell a current phone and use the money towards a new phone. 

  • its these funny plans which caused them to lose 300k + contract customers. i was on the loyalty plan then theycame out with the even more plus plans giving people postpaid accounts cheaper plans than there loyal contract people who have to pay. see what happens when you shit on your loyal contract customers they leave! 

  • Anagle73

    I had switched to unlimited plan on May 31′ 2011. The new plan offered $49.99 is substanitally cheaper than one I am currently paying. I was outraged to hear then the customer rep. asked for $200/ per line as a migration fee. I guess T-mobile seems to have lost touch with the buisness ethics. I have switched to cheaper plans (same number of minutes but cheaper rates or more minutes for same price) on previous occasions and they were happy to do it with a new 2 year contract. It is time to move on to a different company once my 2 year are up. I dont’ want to be treated in the same fashion AGAIN.

      • ColdFeet

        I think it’s more than “what’s cheapest”. I was just doing some research on this plan for a friend and she told me about the $200 fee to switch and it blew me away. It’s shady crap like this that makes people leave, even if they have to pay more elsewhere. People remember how they’re treated when their contracts are up.

        Now balla… if it was all about “what’s cheapest”, don’t ya think T-Mobile would be number one instead of dead last?

        • They subsidized your phone at the current contract price so they need to make up that by charging you a “migration fee” which is basically the same price you’d pay to end your contract, or pay them the full price for the phone. The VALUE plans are for unsubsidized phones

        • ColdFeet

          So you’re terminating one contract just to start up a new one AFTER paying a term fee to end the first contract?

    You can always sign up for this plan with your old phone then sign up for a new contract when they have deals on free phones.  Cancel the plan after the 30 days and you get your phone for and early termination free and a month of service (about $250)

    • Vjballa21

      Please if u don’t know what ur talking about stfu. Customer will also be responsible for the full cost of the phone if they do this. With the value plans customers do not get a subsidy on the phone.

    It’s fine if there isn’t a discount on the phone, but the last time they offered no phone discount the plan wasn’t under contract. This way you are under contract and paying full price for the phone.

    I talked to a rep in the store. 1st he told me that I got 2 lines for $50. I knew he was wrong. He went to get the info and said oh yeah sorry it’s $50 each. My response was yeah I know…

    Then I was talking to my husband about the price of the phones and the rep jumped in and said it’s only $15 a month for the phones. I told him yeah, but they are $900. He kept insisting that they were $15. I felt like I was at a car dealer. Let’s just look at what your monthly payment is not what you are actually paying.

  • Hkaplan

    Did you know that the “Classic Plan” and the “Value Plan” are the same but different. The Value plan gives no discount on phones but you have to agree on a new 2yr contract. The Classic plan is the same price and features but it does give you discounts on phones and you still have to agree on a new 2 yr contract.

    The reason I bring this up is because I called T-Mobile customer service and asked to switch my plan to the Value plan. The rep told me I would have to pay a migration fee of $500 for my three lines. I hung up the phone and then went into the local T-Mobile store.

    The store clerk is the one that explained to me the differences between the two plans. Then the store clerk said I could make the change to the Classic plan without paying the migration fees.

    So the main difference of the plans is the “Classic Plan” allows you to switch without paying migration fees and provides discount on phones.

  • phillio

    Wow! no one sees the deal and people say the plans are the same price. First off there is no discount on the phone with the classic it is spread out in your contract and the contract for a “discounted” phone is higher. When you get a discounted phone you are pretty much stuck with it. Think about it you more than likely have a good phone now and they just came out with the latest whiz bang and you can’t get another phone until the 2 year contract is up because what is the point in the “discount” if you don’t keep the phone. Now in this cheaper contract you can wait 6 months for that great whiz bang phone to drop in price. unless you are wanting a free phone most are around 200.00. The free sidekick is still at no discount.

Keep it simple stupid, dont unbundle your plans from phone cost. It confusing to people and makes them think they are being ripped off, and a migration fee to boot. hahahaha try explaining to someone they have to pay $150 to switch sign a 2 year contract and pay full cost for a phone.

      What I don’t understand is what your compliant is. First how much is your phone worth and how far are you into your current contract? If you have priced other compiarible plans with other provlders you woild know that to even get close to that price without a contract you have to by a phone and activate it. The plan is still cheaper rhan a subsidized plan and that lower no free phone is much cheaper after the 2 yr is up.

    Tmo is the only company that introduces a new plan rate every other month and the worst part, existing customers need to pay a migration fee to transfer to the new and exciting value plans. Yes tmo will get some new customers but more customers will leave once their contracts are up for renewal especially if tmo is not getting iphone this year.

      If you look at T-Mobile web page you might have to redo your math.  For the matching of the plans it is $59.99 for an individual plan with the 2GB of data.  If you go with the 5GB of data then it would be $74.99 a month on an individual plan.

      • Stephen

        As I posted below, it is 79.99….What you are talking about is if you already have a smartphone that works…so its not exactly apples to apples but apples to oranges.  I cut and paste below from the TMobile website but the formatting got changed so it looks like I just typed it in.

  • IUDude05

    I did the math on these plans  when I was looking for a new phone(contract and value).  What I found was that unless 1) you’re purchasing a phone that is less than 250 retail cost or 2) you already have a phone to use, then you will spend more money over two years on the value plans than you would on the contract plan with the subsidized handset.

    • Stephen

      I agree…because the value plan is $20 cheaper a month for a 2gb plan (I think -or near that) so 20×24 month contract period is $480…..

    • Fatcat3434

      There is another catach that they don’t tell you about and not mentioned in this article. When you sign up for T-Mobiles best plan ever your going to get two new phones right? When getting this plan you buy the phone ranging from 50 to 200. On top of the amount you pay for the phone they will be charging you an extra 10 to 15 a month for 20 months. Making that 49.99 plan 59 to 65 a month before taxes and other fees. When I talked to the sales person their reasoning for this is “we are giving you such a good deal on the plan.” All they are doing is moving some of the money around to make the plan look better but in the end its no different really. One will be paying 200 for their top phone plus 15 for 20 months, thats another 600 bucks making that phone worth 800 bucks!? I dont think so. In my opinon this best plan ever is just another marketing ploy and don’t fall for it.

      I calculated some of it out, the 49.99 a month comes to at the end of 24 months 1199.78 and if you get the top phone another 800.00 comes to 1999.78 before taxes and fees. If you take say Sprints regular everything plan at 79.99 it comes to 1919.76 plus taxes and fees plus what phone you want. You can buy an equally good phone for 100 bucks making the difference around 80 bucks in the two years of the contract.

We were paying $310 per month (after taxes) for 3 lines of unlimited talk, text, and data (5GB 3G); 1 line of unlimited talk and text; and 1 line of 200 minutes talk and unlmited text. Under our new Value plan, we are paying $220 per month (after taxes) for 2 lines of unlimited talk, text and data (2GB 3G); 1 line of unlimited talk, text, and data (5GB 3G); 1 line of unlimited talk and text; and 1 line of 500 minutes talk and unlimited text. We are saving saving $90 per month and the only things changing are:

    1. Two of the smartphones drop from 5GB of 3G to 2GB of 3G, but they were only averageing 1GB of 3G, anyway.
    2. The 200 minute line goes up to 500 minutes.

    This is definitely worth signing a two year contract for us. Plus, it gives us the added benefit that we will be in a contract if the AT&T purchase goes through and they are already on record as saying they will grandfather through the existing T-Mobile contracts. I’m not sure that will be true for the non-contract Even More Plus plans. I’m a very happy camper regarding the new Value plans.

    Question: I am currently “out of contract” and looking for a new phone. What is to stop me from doing the following:
    1. Purchase new phone with reduced price – MyTouch 4G slide, e.g., savings would be $300
    2. Then switching to the Value plan – pay the ETF of $200

    Wouldn’t I still be ahead about $100?
