T-Mobile To Launch Pay-Per-Day Prepaid Plans Later This Month

This is the second time in a little over a week that we have seen some leaked intel point to the unveiling of daily prepaid offerings by T-Mobile later this month. This time around we’re seeing concrete info on upcoming prepaid pay-per-day plans confirming the existence of a $1, $2 and $3 per day offering.

The $3 per day plan appears at first glance to be the best offer with Unlimited Talk, Text and Web versus the $2 per day plan which Unlimited Talk, Text and 2G Web. The $1 per day plan is the least expensive prepaid offering with Unlimited Text at $0.10 per minute of voice usage. Our earlier info pointed to the $3 per day plan only offering 4G speeds up to 200MBs and we believe that still rings true.

Aside from confirming the existence of the pay-per-day plans this leaked image also confirms the upcoming launch of the new Monthly4G $60 Unlimited Plan offering up to 2GB’s of 4G speed.

Both the new pay-per-day plans as well as the new Monthly4G offering are likely to launch on October 16th, the same day T-Mobile partners with Wal-Mart to introduce a specialized Monthly4G plan at $30 per month. For prepaid and Monthly4G customers it’s definitely going to be a good end of the year.

    That walmart plan would be perfect for me! Except I just moved to a non-tmobile area. I hope att does similar

      Sorry, ATT wants to squeeze every last penny from you the customer..
      In other words, ATT will copy this plan only when hell freezes over.

    as a sales rep, this will only make it harder to convince customers why having a post paid account is better than prepaid…while the company is pushing all these great new prepaid plans, at the end of the day, they want posts…yet the benefits of having a contract are pretty much gone with these plans.

      Then tell the t-mo exec, make even better post paid plans?

    I can’t help but notice the “Confidential – Need to prevent competitive response” prominently displayed in red for the Wal-Mart plan.  And people wonder why management never tells them anything ahead of time?

    It can be beneficial to some, but not all. $2 for 30 days is $60 anyway. Value plan gives you same price and you’re still paying full price for phone either way. The difference is contract, coverage, insurance and payment plan (EIP). I’m not sure if they’re getting rid of $15 prepaid unlimited text per month but it makes sense to get that instead of $1 per day if you text a lot. It shouldn’t be a hard sell over value plans if you explain the benefit of the value plans.

      For people who don’t care about having the latest and greatest phones there are some decent phones available on ebay at a low cost.  Prepaid isn’t for everyone, but some of the plans I have seen would be good for some of the people I know.

    Any info on what devices can use these plans? I want to swap the SIM between a phone, USB modem and a tablet.

    • Anonymous

      Unless T-Mobile changes things, you can use the SIM in any device.

      I have a pay-as-you-go SIM that I have used in an iPhone 3GS, T-Mobile G2 and network USB 3G stick.

    Damn, my new billing month starts tomorrow. I would of loved to up myself to the $60 a month plan this month. I guess I will have to wait :(

    I use my phone every day so the pay as you go plan doesn’t work for me but I know a few people that would actually save with it.

    I just wanna warn those people out there who are thinking about the
    new $3 and $2 plan. They claim on their website that “you only pay when
    you use your phone” but it actually charges you when your phone have
    “data sync” with T-mobile which usually happens if your phone is simply
    on. They said you need to turn the feature off if you don’t want to be
    charged. I asked them how to do that and it turned out I can’t turn it
    off with my phone. I doubt if anyone would be able to turn it off. I
    heard another customer saying that the “data sync” happens even if you
    charge your phone.

    Another thing is they charge you by the day based on the time zone
    your phone number associated with but not where you are using it. Unlike
    in the past, you can keep your phone number no matter where you live or
    which company provider you are with. If you have a NY phone number but
    have been using it in CA, you get charged for another day after 9:00pm
    instead of 12:00mid-night.

    For anyone who is considering switching to the plan, think again!
