T-Mobile Posts Carly Commercial Promoting T-Mobile’s “Best Plan Ever”

T-Mobile is taking this whole $49.99 each line two line promotional family plan seriously with a thirty-second commercial spot promoting it. Of course, Carly is the main star even even though T-Mobile calls this its “Best Plan Ever” which is noteworthy in and of itself. Those are some bold words considering some of the excellent rate plans T-Mobile has had over the years. Watch for yourself and tell us what you think…and pick up this rate plan while it’s available. Carly told you to do it. You don’t want to disappoint Carly do you?

    Damn! That’s almost what I am paying for “ONE” account! Wish they’d come up with this price (or close to it) for one line. Granted this only includes 2GB of data (before throttled), and I have 5GB – but to cut my bill in almost 1/2, I’d consider losing the extra 3GB.

    • SJB

      Do you use close to 5GB?

      • Bimmerz

        My usage varies, I do tether a lot/daily – but I don’t do much Youtube, or any Netflix/Hulu. Mostly web pages, email, G+/FB etc. I guess I am keeping under 5GB, as I’ve yet to get a notice from T-Mobile (as I’ve heard some do).

    $59.99 for single line…..value plan

  • http://twitter.com/PlowRox Plow Rox

    hmm We just changed our plan over to 3 lines @$129.00 unlimited 5g [each line btw] so not too bad its only $20 cheaper than our old gf plan @1500 mins and 2g. But the down side is were now back on contract in order to get the monthly payment plan for new devices. They also dropped the extended warrenty. But hey overall its a great deal!

  • Trainin4life

    yeah.. but it would cost me a $200 per line migration fee to leave my current plan..  and there would be no upgrade discounts (straight full price on all phones..)  now i know there really is no such thing as discounts on phones, and that your plans price covers the phone as well.. but it just stings a lot more to come up with $600 for a phone every 6months or so.. then to come up with $199..  

    just my opinion..  

    if it looks too good to be true, it likely is…

    • Jamesmiles

      you dont understand the plan you wouldnt come up with 600 every 6 months you come up with the price of the phone which is 199 then you add 15 dollars to your plan for 20 month…

      • Trainin4life

        i totally understand the plan..  i was exaggerating on the $600 every 6 months.. (a lil..)  although that is about how often i change my phones.. but i kno i pay for my “discounts” thru my current plan..  and i’m ok with that..

    • Jamesmiles

    • Anonymous

      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.

    I just absolutely love T-Mobile’s new advertising campaign! If only T-Mobile started advertising like this three years ago. Maybe we wouldn’t be in this AT&T fiasco. However, T-Mobile needs to start flaunting their flagship devices and do it hard, for instance, Sensation and myTouch line. Show commercials all over the place staring these devices and this new plan. Compare your flagship devices to the iPhone and what your devices can do and it cannot. Pump up your super-fast, largest 4G network campaign and how much people can save. Put up billboards in all major markets displaying your flagship devices and cheap plans. Go to all the major events in key markets and show what you have and be proud of it. Come on T-Mobile, get aggressive with your advertising and don’t give up!

  • Nightnighttmobs

    Seems like T-Mobile is getting more deceiving with their advertising now in my opinion. They broke down the total plan price to 49 rather than 99 because they know that will draw some people in thinking its 49 for one line of service. Second these plans dont give you a discount on the phone so you have to finance your phone with the plan in most cases bringing it back up to the regular plan price anyway. We have been trained on this and the reason why t-mobile is promoting this so hard is because they know people will cancel less now that they would have to pay an early termination fee AND the remaining balance of their phones. Other than that its a good price point for those who already have devices and dont mind never having an upgrade again

    • LC

      When you finance the device, you’re still saving money. The Classic plan equivalent to this Value plan is $69.99 each line. If both lines bought top of the line smart phones at $15 a month for 20 months, you’re still seeing a savings of $10 a month. Then, for the last four months of the agreement (once you’re done paying off the phone) you can either purchase a new device (upgrade) and split up the cost again (still giving you a $10 a month saving) or continue to have your plan save you $40 a month as compared to the Classic plan. A grand total of $360 over two years while still paying full cost for devices…I’ll take that, thank you! :)

      • WW

        just wanted to politely point out that top of the line smart phones at tmo range from $450-$500 (g2x, sensation) so there would be an additional up front out of pocket cost (which many subsidized phones also have).

        • LC

          Well it’s a given that there’s an upfront, out of pocket cost to purchase the device. But with the Value plans you generally end up paying a little bit less in store than a Classic plan customer because for the most part you don’t have to deal with a mail in rebate and there isn’t the $18 upgrade fee. So even with the Sensation you’d only be paying $199.99 in store (plus all the sales tax if that’s applicable in your situation) instead of $249.99 plus the upgrade fee plus tax.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong (like I have to tell you people that…haha)
    If you are not big into talking on the phone (family plan 750 now and we do not even crack 400) wouldnt it be wiser to sign for the “classic” plan for $99 but only has 1000 shared minutes and then you would still get the phone subsidies???  Am I understanding that correctly?
    For me, I do not think that going unlimited on voice that I will not need is worth the occasional phone subsidy I would get for the same price on classic 1000+minimum data..  Unless I misunderstand something.

    • math

      You can get 1000 min and 2Gb data for 79.99 on the value plan if you want to go that way.  So that is a $480 in savings so you just need to do the path and make sure the phone discounts are > $480.

  • Action 6

    How is it best if you have to pay 1000 dollar in migration fee to get this plan? 5 line

    • The ATL Guy

      BECAUSE you got a discounted phone for signing a contract. 
      Now you want tmobile to just lower your rate AFTER giviing you a substantial discount on your phone?

      • LC

        It’s really amazing to me if people read this blog regularly that they still don’t understand this concept :)

  • Mr. Bell

    I love how David keeps referring to this as a “promotional” plan and is saying “pick up this rate plan while it’s available” as if it is available for a limited time only.  There is nothing promotional about this plan.  It is one of the new Value plans which have replaced the old Even More Plus plans. 

    You would think that he would be an expert on this since he is running the blog.  Maybe he should actually check the T-Mobile plan offerings occasionally so that he would know what is what. 

    • GregP74

      The commercials on the radio are calling it a promotional plan too.

      Perhaps I realize that T-Mobile changes rate plans like the wind changes direction. As far as I am concerned every plan they offer is promotional. Seriously, if T-Mobile can call it a promotional plan, so can I. Don’t think I don’t know the plans by heart, didn’t I break the news on the Value Plans anyway? I know what they are. Also, the fine print says “limited-time offer.”

      Technically they do allow for upgrades, you would just be purchasing the device at full cost. You’re allowed to split it into payments so you still walk out of the store paying about the same or less, because most phones don’t have the rebate with these plans. I’d rather get my discounts month to month than once every 22 months just because the difference really adds up.

      this is the perfect plan for the tmo loyalists that already have phones they like or like to get a new phone as often as one catches their eye (and fits their wallet $$$). if these value plans can be grandfathered in, you could keep these super cheap plans forever and buy upgrade phones at full price as often or infrequently as you want.

      I priced out 2 androids w/unlimited tlk/txt 2g data, 1 android 500 tlk 2g data, 2 standard phones w/500 min

      $125/month for 3 smart phones & 2 regular phones (plus taxes & junk fees)!!!!

  • Ramon

    Hey can someone help me out here? I just recently purchased an HTC Sensation and MT4G and want to change over to this plan. Does this plan require you to pay for the full price of the phones? I’m just a little confused on that part.

    • Unknown

      since you purchased these phones already you have been locked into a contract. now if you want to acquire these plans, you need to pay the termination fee of your 2 year contract in order to jump into these new plans. hope that makes sense

      • Ramon

        That makes perfect sense but the thing is since I just recently purchased these phones and purchased them through wirefly where I also changed my plan.  I’m sure I can get my plan changed so my question is will it require me to pay the full price of the phones. I know with the release of tmo’s new value plans you’re required to pay full price for the phones.

          Just had a on-line chat with wirefly. I told them that I wanted to change my plan to the new plan t-mobile just launched and they informed me that the this plan requires full payment of the phones. so I guess its a no go for me. Not so attractive if I have to pay full price of a Sensation and MT4G ya know.

        • LC

          Yeah, when you take the discount on the devices, you’d be paying the migration fee of $200 per line, but that fee is adjusted the further along you are into your contract. In the end, that $200 (in your case) would basically bring the phones up to full price, but normally when you move into these plans (without migration fees) the full costs of the phones are spilt up. However, the option to spilt up the devices is only available at T-Mobile stores because third party retailers don’t have access to that option.

    I got the new rate plan while 8 months into my current phone-discount-included contract.

    • Doug

      Either this is wrong or the T-Mobile rep lied to me last night. I specifically asked if this plan would include the full discount on handsets and she said yes, I would get the normal $300 to $350 break on a phone come renewal time.

  • Mastrorj

    so i called about th plan and found out that asurion upped our bill $2 per line bc they added mobile security yet its a free app—u can get the premium app for 2.99 on the web site but why dont we get it if we are paying $2 per line – not only that but they did it with out anyones permission and said well its across the board – cheapest F**k*ng ive ever had!!!

    • LC

      Yeah, it happened with everyone. You should have received notification of it back in late May, beginning of June. You get the mobile security, full insurance, and life time warranty. But you also get next day air shipping and a $5 processing fee for exchanges instead of ground shipping and a $20 processing fee.

  • The ATL Guy

    Funny they dont mention no subsidized phone. 
    My point being is that when a cell phone company advertises a plan in such a such a way as tmobile is doing I bet 95% of the people that walk in think they also get a subsidized phone. 

    • LC

      Sure, they may not be getting a subsidized phone, but every customer that I’ve talked to could add two additional lines for the cost of what they’re currently paying, while still buying the phones at full cost, because of the savings these plans offer. It just depends on where you want to save. If you’re having to pay about the same, or even less because in most cases there aren’t mail in rebates, to walk out the door with a phone, but you can save huge amounts of money month to month, I don’t see why anyone wouldn’t. But hey, I get that some people want the phone discount so to each their own. 

      I had my family switch over to these plans just because the savings were so significant. But again, I totally understand that people have come to expect phone discounts every two years. For myself personally, I’d rather see the discount every month :)

      • jarjon76

        Or in my case, I’m on a grandfathered loyalty family plan, with $10 unlimited text, and $20 for unlimited data that is more affordable than any of the current plans and can stay on that plan, while getting a phone at a discount when I renew. There’s no reason for me to switch to one of the new plans where I’m paying for a phone full price upfront when I can keep my grandfathered plan and get that same phone at a discount in exchange for a 2 year contract. 

        I’m not knocking the current plans, I think they’re good, I’m just saying there are some customers like me who are benefiting from our grandfathered plans, and can still get a phone on discount once their contracts are up (provided you are willing to re-up for another 2 years). I agree with you though, paying for a phone outright saves you money month to month–in most cases.

        • LC

          That can certainly be true, because T-Mobile has definitely had some good plans in the past. But for some grandfathered plans, it makes mode since to switch to some of the new plans if someone is looking to add web or additional lines. Every situation is different but its certainly a great option.

    Maybe I’m missing something here but…

    …the T-Mobile website shows 5 different FREE (with 2-year contract of course) phones.  I selected the $99.98 Family plan… added 2 free phones… and it appeared the site would let me check out with the free phones intact.

    Granted, the free phones are “web only” but who shops physical stores any more for electronics?

    David, has any rep told you yet that we take hits for this? A customer calls in about this plan and I’m supposed to either talk them out of it or add a ton of features to make up for the loss. I’ve had amazing sales and stats in the past, but they’re turning on us and making it impossible. 

    Another question: I believe in the Bronze List, but I asked my sup his opinion and he claimed, “It’s a known issue with the IVR. Submit a Help Desk Ticket.”

      I was wondering if they could make any money off a deal this cheap. It might be great for slowing the churn rate (Look at us! We’ve signed up xxxx number of customers to this great new plan!) but if they’re not making — or losing money, that’s not good either.

        It’s possible you have not finished contract obligation. However, when I migrated from contact plan to even more plus, I only paid activation fee and finish up the rest of contract duration.

    This is such a Scam deal I was in T-mobile today and wanted to get 2 Android phones the newer HTC ones they wanted to charge me 400 dollars down payment then pay the 600 dollars as 30 dollars a month… which is 3400 for 2 years. I am sorry buy US Cellular is cheaper its not really 100 dollars because u are paying the 500 times 2 which is 1000 dollars with a 400 dollar downpayment no one pays 500 dollars for the android phone full price.. the Ad is frivilous because it doesnt say must purchase phone at full price… 1 out of 500 customers has a android phone they can use for this plan already so the 2 percent… it is good for.. 
    T-MOBILE IS TEEN MOBILE because they target teens only.. Adults go to a grown up network!

      Do any of you people know how to perform simple math??? ATT and Verizon are much more expensive than Sprint so let’s use Sprint as a comparison here shall we………sprints unlimited plan is 110.00/month X 24 months=$2640.00 just for your plan…….. T-Mobile’s unlimited plan even with 5gb data is 75.00/mo X 24 months=$1800.00 and when we add in the mists expensive phone at 500.00 full cost that brings your total cost to $2300.00……so when you add in a $200-300 cost of sprints “discounted” phone then you have $2940.00 with Sprint over 24 months and $2300.00 with T-Mobile over 24 months. Anyone who thinks these plans are a “rip off” just really isn’t very smart.

        First of how can tmobile be unlimited with a 5gb cap? Sprint is cheaper with the 79.99 plan and most employment places get 20 percent off plus the EVO free at radio shack so ur not paying full retail u get mobile 2 mobile free & 450 if u go over ur land line mins u can buy a 100 for 5 bucks…. What I’m saying is u don’t.need the unlimited plan because only businesses use them so its not a good comparison on face value

      You’re actually showing that you’re simply upset because you can’t afford the phones. The deal is pretty good and the best in the industry. Even with a subsidized phone you cannot get a cheaper plan on ANY of the other networks, not even flipping Cricket or MetroPCs…the only plan that can beat TMobile is Boost and maybe Straight Talk and imho I wouldn’t deal with those carrier’s phones.

      Pound for Pound the TMobile plan is the best. You can complain about network stability and call reliability, maybe even customer service but you can’t complain about this deal.

      I’m not going to get into numbers because I think CRT24 has done a great job and knows what he/she is talking about. All I will say is that I believe you are misguided and need to sit down and work it all out. Don’t look at the cost of the phones upfront, compare the savings of TMo vs. the other carrier and how much you save over a 2 year contract and you’ll see that it’s not a ‘scam’.

      As for not telling customers about having to pay full price for the phone….I think it’s up to the customer to find that out at the store. No need to stuff that into an Ad or flyer, that’s not a marketing ‘trick’, it’s a rule.

        Who pays full price for an Android phone with a 2 yr contract? Well who Dwanye Wade? Tmobile neglects to tell customers with the commercial that they must pay full price with a 2 yr contract with Sprint I just got an HTC EVO for free with my 2yr contract. Who said I can’t afford it I just don’t enjoy being raped and being told I must pay 1000 for 2 Android phones when signing a 2 yr contract and you must pay for messaging pics and after 2gs u go on the slow network so goodbye on line streaming the deal is only good if u win a brand new tmobile Android phon

          Are you for real? How are you figuring that it’s getting ‘raped’? See this is what I mean. You’re completely uninformed and dazzled by the fact that you’re getting a “FREE” phone. You most certainly are not. You’re paying for it out the wazoo.

          $100 dollars a month for 2 lines, unlimited everything, 2GB limit to data with TMobile vs. Sprint, charging ~190 dollars for 2 lines for unlimited everything. Not sure what youre talking about regarding picture messaging, all data/txt etc. is unlimited. 
          You also must pay $10 premium on Sprint when you use a smartphone. You’re paying $2160 + $480 (20 a month for 24 months) over 2 years MORE with Sprint than TMobile. Even if you buy the phones the very day they are released (and so, most expensive), you’re paying roughly $700 for a flagship device, that’s exaggerating too as I’ve never seen a phone retail for $700 from TMobile, that’s $1400 if you choose to buy 2 flagship phones. Still more than $1000 less than Sprint over the span of 2 years.

          If you even compare individual plans, that’s 49 vs. 99 + 10 (premium data), that’s a total of $1440 + 240. You get the most expensive phone for $700, you STILL pay 700 more going with Sprint.

          About the only way Sprint makes more sense is if you use your phone as a hotspot all the time or need more than 2GB of 4G monthly. I use my 4G hotspot quite a bit as I use it with my tablet while I’m out and about and my phone switches to 4G from Wifi whenever I leave my home automatically; I don’t hit 2GB in a month. My softcap is 5GB as I am grandfathered. 

          Do you see the logic of it yet or are you still convinced? Just who’s getting ‘raped’, really?
