T-Mobile Launches Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data Plan

T-Mobile’s 10th anniversary as a wireless brand in the US isn’t our reason to celebrate today as today also marks the release of their “Unlimited Nationwide 4G data plan,” introduced back on August 22nd.

“We’re big believers in customer-driven innovation, and our Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan is the answer to customers who are frustrated by the cost, complexity and congested networks of our competitors,” said Kevin McLaughlin, vice president, marketing, T-Mobile USA.  “Consumers want the freedom of unlimited 4G data. Our bold move to be the only wireless carrier to offer an Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan reinforces our value leadership and capitalizes on the strength of our nationwide 4G network.”

T-Mobile’s new plan “empowers customers to unleash the power of their smartphones by making fast, nationwide 4G data accessible and affordable.”

That’s not all, to help customers take advantage of this offering, customers activating a new two-year contract on an Unlimited Nationwide 4G data plan (Value Plan only) will be able to benefit by picking up an HTC One S with a $0.00 down payment, after a $50 mail-in rebate.

One interesting note in the press release below is the mention that T-Mobile customers can “bring their own compatible smartphone and have access to a worry-free unlimited data experience on T-Mobile’s fast nationwide 4G network.” Combine that line along with the recent increase in bringing unlocked iPhone news over to T-Mobile and perhaps a network refarm launch is getting close.

“The Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan will cost $20 per month when added to a Value voice and text plan or $30 per month when added to a Classic voice and text plan. For example, a single line Value plan with unlimited talk and text combined with unlimited nationwide 4G data will cost $69.99 or a single line Classic plan with unlimited talk, unlimited text and unlimited nationwide 4G data will cost $89.99.”

    I upgraded to the new unlimited plan this morning. I tried to download FoxFi to attempt to get around not being able to use the hotspot, but I recieved a message that the item isn’t available. Has anyone else had this problem? Also, is it possible that t-mobile is blocking access to that program?

  • Albertzelaya

    I called tmobile and told them i wanted to switch. Said it would take up to two hours and this was at noon today i ran over five gigs and now slow so i called them back and they say they dont know y its slowing down . Tried re starting and a battery pull. Not working. Is anyone else having this.problem?

    Help!!!

  • jbhotnessmon

    has anyone been able to tether with this new plan “unofficially” 

  • Ernesto

    Unlimited data?
    Not for me.
    My iPhone is still on EDGE…
    I am tired of EDGE.

    • Aaron vita

      I been tired of edge on my iphone left it 2yrs ago. Its pointless to have it on edge

  • Daniel

    So… If you get the $90 per month plan you can “unofficially” tether for free and get real unlimited data or you can pay $125 to get 10gb of highspeed data… but with official tethering… 
    I think I will stick with my $20 for unlimited data (now down to 5gb sadly and I hope that goes back up) and unlimited texting. I have myfaves and only a few hundred minutes. UBER CHEAP 

  • Daniel

    Well.. I found the reason to go with the Unlimited Ultra Hotspot plan. On T-Mobiles site it says that the Ultra and Premium Hotspot plans get priority on the network. Stupid footnotes… 
    Still not paying that much for less than unlimited data. 

  • Tlfelder0927

    Can someone answer this, I understand that by switching to the new unlimited plan, u loss the option of hotspot an tethering, however I have an unlocked galaxy nexus running on T-Mobile service an at the current time I’ve been able to use the mobile hotspot without adding that feature to my plan, if I switch to this new unlimited plan would I still be able to use it without them knowing? I am currently on 5gb a month unlimited which I go over every month, but u would like to switch but not at the cost of losing mobile hotspot, what dobu guys think?

    • http://www.kdmstance.com BiGMERF

      im wondering the same!

      • Anthony baca

        highly doubt it i have a rooted lg g2x and i used to tether on the 5gb 30 dollar plan all the time then maybe sometime in May i started getting a message saying you must add tethering to your account to use it. 

        • qhdevon43

          as long as your phone is rooted you can always use your phone as a hotspot, now your browser on your computer has to be configured in a way so that it doesnt redirect to tmobiles page saying u need to purchase the package… i forget how to do it but there is a setting you can use within google chrome to make it act like a mobile phone but still display webpages as a desktop PC.

        • sorandkairi

          user agent spoofer for chrome is what you are looking for

      • kahlayoh

        They will know…once you switch your plan you will not be able to tether with your phone unless you add the option with hotspot or your phone must be rooted. 

  • jzielin

    I just switched my family plan to the new “unlimited” … it says there is a limit to 10gb of “high speed” data when I look at my account.
    I did save like $5 a month and have unlimited talk… but.. so the new unlimited is just an update of the old one? 5gb to 10gb?
    hopefully it is just a website thing, because 10gb isn’t unlimited.

    • ticket

      Keep us posted, thanks

      • qhdevon43

        hey guys, so just FYI, that’s 9 “terabytes” of data you have, If you look at your new data plan and it says ” 
        Up to 9765.6 GB full-speed data ” then it technically is truly unlimited because to achieve this task of running out of full speed data you would need to use your phone as a high traffic server for a major website… which isnt possible (maybe) but yea not to worry guys… PLENTY of data…. lol

        • qhdevon43

          also, go to 
          http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/calculate/ and put in 9765.6 “Gigabytes” and it will convert it to how much data you can use which is 
          9.5367187499 terabytes 
           which is  
          0.0093132019 petabytes .  Yes my friends its truly unlimited!

    • htchka

      Its actually unlimited it just say that in my account app, i called them yesterday and verified that there is no limit on it

    • Cityofnewyork3000

      I think you’re reading that wrong it says you have 9765 gigabytes which is basically 10 terabytes try using that in a billing cycle.

  • Paul

    Set up the switch for Monday, that’s my new billing cycle. I’m pretty stoked; it’ll be nice to not have to worry about how much data I have left when downloading ROMs.
    Switched from the 5Gb cap, didn’t change the price for my “Classic” plan. Also, it’s being reported that rooted Android phones are noting being stopped from the tether feature. GO ANDROID!

    NOW…when does the Note 2 get released?!

  • http://about.me/daylondeon Deacon

    I called to change and a TMO rep said these plans are only for prepaid customers .. i’ll call back because i’m sure she didn’t know what she was talking about since the press release specifically says Classic Plans are eligible. and she ALSO said that you only get 100MB .. i’m like wtf is this rep talking about.

  • DrScope

    T-Mo needs to offer a family shared data plan. Even if it comes out to be the same price I am paying now $20X3 = $60 for 2GBX3 so 6GB for $60  at least, at the very least, let me share it between my line!!  

  • Winski

    Let’s make sure we all understand some delineation here…. the ‘unlimited’ plans in MOST CASES REQUIRE A NEW 2-YEAR CONTRACT!!!! You really wanna go there with these clowns???

  • Becky

    I noticed that agreeing to a new/renewing a 2 year contract, they are giving the HTC One S free after rebate. I’ve been told it’s only for NEW customers signing a 2 year agreement. Has any existing customers gotten the promotional free phone?

  • Jerry p.

    I changed to the new unlimited 4g. And loving it. I’m at 13gb. Greats speeds andhotspot on my galaxy nexus. No root or anything. Just perfect. Some of u complain too much. I’ve been with T-Mobile since voice stream. And have no regret of choosing T-Mobile over the others.
