T-Mobile Officially Announces Simple Choice Family Option With No Credit Check

Screen-Shot-2013-06-25-at-9.54.58-AM

Just as we suspected, T-Mobile is introducing a Simple Choice with no credit check to help customers with “less-than-premium credit.” Beginning on July 14th, families can get four Simple Choice lines with unlimited talk, text and web and up to 500MB of high-speed data for $100 per month. According to T-Mobile, one in three consumers who apply for wireless service do not have a credit score that allows them to qualify for the best wireless rates. T-Mobile wants to make that concern a thing of the past with the introduction of this new plan.

Want to know more? We ran down the entire plan late last month! You can find all the details here.

Launching Breakthrough Family Option with No Credit Checks

T-Mobile today is also extending its Un-carrier strategy to families by addressing a huge customer headache: being denied premium family-plan rates because of less-than-premium credit.

Beginning July 14, families can get four Simple Choice Plan lines with unlimited talk, text and Web and up to 500MB of high-speed data for only $100 per month (plus taxes and fees) — no credit check and no annual service contract required.

An average of one in three consumers who apply for wireless service do not have strong enough credit to qualify for the best wireless rates, according to industry data. Other customers prefer to avoid the hassle of a credit check. As a result, these customers may forego service from a top provider or purchase several prepaid lines.

But with T-Mobile, all families can now access a great multi-line deal with no credit check. Simply put down a deposit (roughly equivalent to one month’s bill) to get the same incredible multi-line rates and network experience as other customers.

The Simple Choice Plan has been wildly popular with families since its introduction in March. About 80 percent of customers who have signed up for the plan have opted for multiple lines.

    Can 20 more for each line make it unlimited with this plan?

    • ChitChatCat

      Yes.

    • sheliam

      the plan is already unlimited talk text and web its just that you only get 500mb of high speed web. Yes you can upgrade the internet to truly unlimited so it never slows down.

  • TmoFan

    • ernieb23

    Good move T-Mobile, very good move. Price of devices? Full cost or bring your own, (which is the best thing to do.)

    • http://benpike.net/ Ben Pike

      Full price.

  • salesdivababy

    price of devices its FULL COST it is still a prepaid plan, no credit check so no way to tie you down should you skip with the phone

    • Zombiexm

      You are still tied to a contract for the DEVICE! You will be asked to pay for the full amount owed on the device.
      If you do not make the credit check for the EIP then you have to pay full price for the phone. There is no way of “skipping out with the phone and not paying”.

      • thepanttherlady

        Financing is not offered for prepaid plans. There is no device “contract”.

        • Zombiexm

          Oh, well It sounded like salesdiva was stating that you did not have to pay for the device and could skip out on the bill and take the phone. That’s what I responded like that.

          I cant believe no one asked no one asked about the edge only areas. But arnt alot of these areas just roaming with att and not actual towers?

  • DT

    Is $100 all-in (taxes and fees included)? Otherwise, eh.

    • Paddy_Tanninger_Caddy_Manager

      about $100 will be your down payment. It’s about the same as going through a credit check.

      • TechHog

        You might want to actually read the article. ;)

    • RedGeminiPA

      $100 for 4 lines PLUS taxes & fees. Why do you say “eh”? That’s $25 per line, which is pretty damn cheap.

  • corepreacher

    The beauty of the announcements today is that when people begin returning their unwanted good condition phones, tmobile is going to factory certify them and resell them outright at discounted prices. The people on this new simple choice no credit check plan will be able to afford top teir phones easier because they will be used certified phones. Tmobile is making money from all aspects now. Good move tmobile,

  • steveb944

    Too bad my family is 5 or else this would be great. I guess our grandfathered plan remains better as some need more data.

    • Andy

      I thought I read somewhere that you can get a fifth line for ten more dollars a month?

  • RedGeminiPA

    Is tethering included as well?
