T-Mobile.com, Wal-Mart Monthly4G Prepaid Offering Phone List

In just a few short hours the announcement of T-Mobile’s newest prepaid plan has already taken off like wildfire with hundreds of readers hoping to take advantage of this plan when it arrives October 16th. One question that quickly arose was the question of what devices would be offered/allowed on this Wal-Mart/T-Mobile.com exclusive plan? So we went right to the source and asked T-Mobile. While any “capable” phone/smartphone will work with this plan there will six specific devices being offered in combination with this attractive prepaid offering. The Nokia 1616, LG GS170, T-Mobile Sparq, Samsung Dart and Nokia X2 are all being sold with this Monthly4G rate plan.

Of course we also got specific and asked if you could use a Galaxy S II with this plan or just purchase a SIM card for use with this offering and select your own phone later. The answers to both questions are a thankful yes. On a more important note this is not a limited time offer although there is no indication this plan will be available through T-Mobile corporate owned retail stores. This is a Wal-Mart, T-Mobile.com exclusive offering.

  • The LG GS170 offers an intuitive user interface with one-touch speakerphone, large visible keys and a high-resolution color display. Additionally, the LG GS170 features a VGA camera, MP3 ringtone capability, Bluetooth® 2.1, text/picture messaging capability and e-mail support packaged in a sleek, pocket-size design. The LG GS170 is currently available in Walmart stores. Pricing will be $28.88 plus tax.
  • The T-Mobile exclusive Nokia X2 features a built-in communities application and full web access, offering customers a unified view of their favorite social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter and delivering alerts directly to the device’s home screen. The Nokia X2 also offers a full QWERTY keyboard design for quick access to personal e-mail, text messaging, instant messaging and web2go. The Nokia X2 smartphone is currently available in Walmart stores. Pricing will be $79.88 plus tax.
  • The Nokia 1616 is an affordable, easy-to-use, and reliable mobile phone that’ll keep you connected to your friends and family. The No Annual Contract device offers speakerphone, text messaging capability, games, calendar functions and FM radio. Pricing will be $19.88 plus tax.

    Wow…. that is pretty damn awesome!

    this plan would be so great with the iphone since I don’t really use call time, but mostly data and text.

    • Anonymous

      Same for my iPhone usage.

        @Petey07 & MacRat,

        Hmmm…I don’t get it? Texting would be no problem, but your Data speeds for Browsing and VOIP would only be EDGE speeds, not even 3G, if you use an iPhone. Am I missing something?

    was hoping for bold or curve on that list

      what sucks is that on the no contract plans, t-mobile adds $10 a month for blackberry data usage

      • Johnnyvolare

        Do we know if they’re allowing blackberry devices on this for the $10/monthly fee?  Even though it’s $40, I think that’s a heck of a deal (if the minutes work for the user)

    Well I bought an HTC Sensation off contract in preparation for switching to the $50 Value plan, but since I don’t use that many minutes this new deal is perfect! It is $20 cheaper, 3 Gb more data before throttling and no contract!!!!

    Any indication if it will have nights and weekends? Did at&t say they would keep any plan pricing if they merged, or just contract pricing?

    • LC

      Prepaid services don’t have unlimited nights, weekends, or T-Mobile to T-Mobile calls.

    They are doing very well…

    I may be swapping over to this. Yeah, I think I will. It will save me almost 60 dollars a month. I rarely use minutes. Even paying the ETF, it will make up for it in 3 months time. 

    • Anonymous

      Same here. I’ll probably cancel both lines of our family plan and save $100/month. It will take only four months to make up for the $400 ETF.

    wow, a match made for google voice, grooveip, and this awesome new cool option……..wow, even if google charges for a voice account next year this will be so worth it!!!!!!!!!

  • Anonymous

    wow, this is basically unlimited voice (google voice using grooveip, pic msg via gmail, text via google voice, and 5gb of 4g is perfect) wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      there is already unlimited text which includes pics

      • Anonymous

        But if you give out a google voice number (which will be required to use the phone without using minutes through grooveip), you won’t be able to use MMS. No big deal though.

    Help out a newb here,

    So if they do in fact allow any Tmobile phones, what’s the best $200ish android phone to use?  Maybe make it $300ish if I can get a slideout keyboard and maybe some other goodies.  Too much to ask to get anything decent for that price range?

      200 dollar unlocked (because you won’t get a discount) phones tend to be low end ones. The ones sold in WalMart may be about what you are looking at unless you are willing to buy used. 

      Then I’d suggest a Nexus S/One (my personal favorite phones – though some may disagree)

      used iPhone 4 16GB at&t is going for around $300 on ebay, you can unlock them yourself. Keep in mind that iPhones that were meant to be on AT&T can only achieve EDGE speed on Tmo networks.

      Check the features…As Im checking Im finding some phones don’t have the most basic of features.  Maybe Im the exception, but I need a speakerphone 

  • Deeg

    The prices on Tmobile’s prepaid website do not match the prices in this article.  And I couldn’t find many of these handsets at Walmart.  i.e. The Sparq is listed on Tmobile.com at 79.99; Samsung Dart is 162.49   (Anyone know why the different prices?)

    Also TMobile keeps advertising their prepaid as Monthly 4g yet most of the phones offered (maybe all but one Ive seen) are 3g phones.  So are they going after postpaid customers with phones whose contracts have expired?  or expecting people to buy $600 phones?

  • Deeg

    I read that this plan is only for new customers – not existing customers so all of you who plan to switch to this and save lots of dough better double check that.  I read that if you were an existing customer , the only way you could get this plan is to cancel your account and open up a new account with a new number.  Hopefully thats incorrect cuz it would be sad to see Tmoblle screw its customers yet again but I read that on various tech blogs.

  • Kevinttt

    If you already have a phone just order it online, if you go to wal mart they make you buy the phone that comes with the SIM card. I just got the cheapest phone which was $30. I just got this plan a few days ago and I am liking it so far! I am using it with the mytouch 4g slide.

    Also, if you’re an existing customer don’t worry, they don’t ask you for any personal information or anything if you go to wal mart and buy the phone, but its obvious you should cancel your expensive contract anyway. I don’t know how it works if you buy it online.

  • Sandra

    For someone like myself, Tracfone offers the best plans. You buy
    airtime as you need it and with the triple minutes it’s hard to beat.
    However, their customer service is the worst I’ve ever dealt with.
    If another company came out with the same plan they could capture
    the pre-paid market for sure. No monthly fees and no contract. Just
    found out they own Net 10 as well.
