T-Mobile kicking off huge promos from tomorrow: $100 of Galaxy S5, 2 unlimited Simple Choice lines for $100 and more!

Screen Shot 2014-12-09 at 19.09.58

Recently T-Mobile brought an end to its unlimited data refer-a-friend offer, promising that exciting new plans were just around the corner. If our conversations with multiple sources are anything to go by, you will not be disappointed. The carrier is about to launch a number of new offers from tomorrow.

Until we get official word from T-Mobile, treat this as a rumor. However, the number of sources who confirm the same info and the inside memos we’ve seen virtually nails this as happening.

.
2 for $100

It wasn’t that long ago that T-Mobile was offering an extra 1.5GB on its lowest two tier Simple Choice plans when 4 or more lines were purchased together. Now, it’s about to throw out an incentive to get customers on its highest Simple Choice tier. From tomorrow, December 10th customers will be able to get two completely unlimited 4G LTE plans on the same account for $100 per month. That’s a saving of $40 per month, as it’s usually $80 for the first line and $60 for the second.

The unlimited plan comes with the Rhapsody unRadio subscription included, as well as the usual Simple Choice benefits, including unlimited music streaming on several music services. You also get 5GB per month allotted for tethering (Smartphone Mobile HotSpot service).

It’s worth noting that taking two lines for $100 per month currently gets you two lines with 3GB of data on each. The difference is huge. You’ll be able to surf, stream, download all you want and use a healthy amount of data using your phone as a hotspot.

Update: Here’s in the in store promo poster being sent around retail stores:

4 for $100 – But for 3GB per line, this time

[UPDATE: T-Mobile confirmed the offers were coming after we published this rumor piece. 3GB per line was incorrect information. It’s the same as the old promo. Read up here.]

It’s coming back, but it’s better than before. T-Mobile’s previous 4 for $100 deal gave families a total of 10GB of data to use (2.5GB per line) each month. This time out, customers will get 3GB of data on each line (an extra 2GB per line compared to the current 1GB allowance). That’s a total allowance of 12GB for a family of four.

.
$100 off Samsung Galaxy S5

As well as the awesome savings on Simple Choice family plans, T-Mobile is also going to discount the Samsung Galaxy S5. Customers will be able to go in store, or order online and get $100 off the Samsung Galaxy S5 from tomorrow. As part of its holiday season deals, T-Mobile did have $50 off the S5. An extra $50 discount will take the price down to $560 full retail price, that’s roughly $23.33 per month on EIP presuming that you don’t pay any down payment.

.
Free CellSpot with activation

T-Mobile wants everyone to make the most of its Wi-Fi calling services, and wants to ensure that the optimized ASUS router is in as many homes as possible. That said, we’ve been told that the carrier intends to offer the CellSpot Router free to any customers activating a new line. We don’t know exactly how that works, but it won’t be long until we find out.

.
SIM Starter Kit going up to $15

A while back were informed that T-Mobile’s SIM Starter Kit would be increasing in price from $10 up to $15. It was initially schedule to change on December 3rd, but just like the refer-a-friend deal end date, it’s been pushed back a week and will be changing tomorrow.

 .
Of all the rumors, the 4 for $100 return is the one I’m getting least clarity on. Some sources have heard it’s happening, others haven’t. But all are agreed on the rest of the promotions. And they all start tomorrow. Let us know if you’re planning on taking advantage. And – as always – we’ll keep you informed when/if the deals are officially announced.

    So can I change my current service to any of these two plans or what?

    • DWAYNE GRAY

      If you find out let me know also please.

      • JiGSaW525

        I sure hope so….and keep my discount would be great!

    • Jason

      There hasn’t been a promotional rate plan before that current customers were not available for. Based on that, my guess is yes.

    • Delusion_FTL

      Legere has been pretty clear that he wants new offers to be extended to current customers, so, while it’s possible until the announcement is formal that it may be new activations only, it’s more likely that you can change to the current plans.

    • Mimo caceres

      Last time there was a promotion i called them and they switched all my lines (5) to the new plan… .I think it will be for everybody else.

  • TrueCopy

    How much is three lines?

    • Cam Bunton

      $140.

  • Roger

    Does the 4 for $100 revert to the default plane on 1/1/2016?

    • Roger

      ugh..i mean plan….

      • bisayan

        I see what u did there…lolzz “ugh”

    • Delusion_FTL

      Probably, but based on history it’s likely a better deal will come along before that and/or the default plan will be raised to 3GB per line anyways.

    • Cam Bunton

      I don’t know, I’ve received very little on the 4 for $100 plan. It might not be happening. The 2 for $100 definitely is though.

  • kev2684

    my parents would love that 2 for $100 deal. but how long can they keep that?

    • Cam Bunton

      I haven’t been told. Apologies.

      • Delusion_FTL

        Cam, you are right, the 3GB thing may not be happening as many sales reps already promise 3GB per line for free as part of their upsell strategy. The 3GB is of course not free, but the unsuspecting customer is left to discover on their own.
        I could see some “sources” getting confused with their manager telling reps to say 3GB is free (when it’s not) with T-mobile actually bumping plans to 3GB fro free IRL.

    • Delusion_FTL

      Almost certainly at least a year, and likely, as long as they don’t change plans/accounts.

  • Philip

    Can the 2 for $100 be able to add the 3rd and 4th line?

    • Cam Bunton

      I don’t think so, it looks like it’ll be $100 for the first two lines. Any additional lines will be $40 each with this offer.

    • Delusion_FTL

      Without the official announcement it’s hard to know for sure. It looks like they are offering unlimited data for ~10 dollars per line with two lines. That leaves a couple options.

      1. All lines after 2 lines can have lower data plans, but would have to pay additional 30 dollars for unlimited data (more likely)
      2. All lines after 2 lines pay 10 dollars for unlimited data (less likely)

  • emcdonald75

    I don’t understand the Cellspot? If I have AT&T U-verse and I want to use the Cellspot as a router because it might give better range the AT&T router, can I?

    • archerian

      yes, you can. I use the cellspot with Brighthouse/Time Warner Internet

      • emcdonald75

        Does it give you a better WIFI signal for improved signal range and data speeds? My AT&T router sucks. The signal range is awful and the speeds are very slow. The fastest speeds I can purchase from AT&T in my area is 18 Mbps, and that’s $56. That does not include the modem rental and taxes, which cost me about $70 total. I had Comcast before and the Internet service would frequently go in and out, and that’s with their X-Finity 50 Mbps service. I am beginning to think that WIFI Internet service is awful in the United States.

        • Brian

          Your internet speed is not going to increase over what is already coming into your modem. The wifi router is in addition to the modem that you already have so you’d still be paying that fee. The T-Mobile wifi router is supposed to be a very good router and that means that it will transmit your internet signal from your modem that much better and more consistently.

        • emcdonald75

          Thank you.

        • Mimo caceres

          Its free just call them and give it a try.,.. I have a Linksys Wireless N router that has no power, i get 50Mbps from Comcast to my modem but my WIFI signal degrades so much that in the living room i get only 7Mbps so i decided to order the ASUS router from T mobile free shipping no deposit and give it a try, hopefully this will boost my signal.

        • MadJoe

          Your internet download/upload speeds won’t change (unless the router AT&T supplied you is absolutely horrid, but finding a router that can’t keep up with a max download speed of 18Mb/s should be difficult even for AT&T). That said, this Asus router will make data transfer within your network move like greased lightning. Meaning, if you stream local content from your computer to a your phone, tablet, or streaming device (Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, etc.), then you will be able to stream max resolution without issue. Also, this router has 2 signals, 2.5GHz and 5.0GHz, so you can spread load across the two if you have a ton of wireless devices in the house. Lastly, this router is not a “cable modem”, it will require you to keep the modem from AT&T plugged in, and you run an ethernet cable from that to this router.

        • emcdonald75

          Okay, I get it. So I guess I need to purchase a WIFI signal booster or something like that? Thank you. I have been trying to figure out what to do because every time I call AT&T they send someone to my house but they cannot ever find anything wrong. Even though, the technician observes the slow speeds and poor signal range within my home. Sometimes I give up and just use T-Mobile LTE on my phone and tablet because of the constant buffering I get from the AT&T router.

  • AI

    Can you do 2 unlimited lines for $100 and have 2 lines for $10 each with 1GB?

    • Cam Bunton

      Good question. I’d assume so… but I can’t say for sure.

    • No. The rep just gave that deal to me and then had to call me back when it didn’t go through. Apparently taking the deal means that all additional lines have to be $40/unlimited and also removes any corporate discounts.

  • John

    Nothing new with the s5 promo. They had $150 off the device from nov 21- nov 30. Which brought the s5 down to $509. The free cell spot promo has been going on for weeks.

    The only truly new promo is the 2 lines truly unlimited for $100. The 12gb for 4 lines for $100 is more like a tweak to their old promo.

    Anyways thanks for the update Cam.

    • Cam Bunton

      I think be free CellSpot with new activations, they mean they’re actually giving them to customers. Not a waived deposit. Could be wrong on that.. but it says “free cellspot with new activations” not “no deposit on cellspot with new activations”.

      • bisayan

        No love for current customers? I mean i have a good coverage where im at but can I have this device to try out?

        • MadJoe

          If you call customer service and just say “I get spotty service when I visit family/travel” they will send you one to “travel” with. That’s how I got mine with 4+ bars of LTE at my home address, anyway.

          Although I don’t know if you can get one for free, or if you will still have to pay the $25 deposit (which is ridiculously cheap for such an awesome router, anyway).

        • bisayan

          Thanks thats legit excuse! I will call them right now..lolzz

        • Mimo caceres

          You dont need to pay a deposit I just got mine (ASUS) router 2 days ago for free.

  • terryjohnson16

    What happens if a person just signed up for the refer a friend to get Unlimited? Could they change to the new 2 for $100? I wonder if T-Mobile gonna put an EOL date on the plan like they did the last plans that expire in 2015.

    • Israel Figueroa

      I think that the unlimited data is add on. Like when i changed my plan from original 1 GB to promotional 2.5 GB. The $10 -2GB add on data plan that i had before was moved over and made my line 4.5 GB of data.

      I think it should be the same. Im worried also. Its gonna suck if they dont.

  • Dave

    Tethering on the 2 for $100?

  • Dave

    Oops. Is it cut off after 5 or slowed?

  • drklahn

    Is the 2 for $100 available for current customers?

    • BIggieWi

      No until your contract ends though… Dumbarse.

      • Willie D

        There is no contract dumbarse!!

        • BIggieWi

          No shite Sherlock… Guess you’re not as stupid as the OP, close but no cigar.

      • Oh boy

        T mobile has no contract

        • Blkbear

          Not in the true sense, but if you are paying installments on a phone, you are locked into that phone and service, at least until the phone if completely paid for. And those $0 down 24 months of service no contract deals, are really contracts. The NO contracts are mostly for those bringing in their own phones or paying full boat up front for their phones bought through TMO.

    • CRT24

      Yes

  • Willie D

    What if we have 2 unlimited and 1 3G add line? What now? Can we get the deal?

  • WI James

    I have 4 lines already and all I’d like for Christmas is for our phones to have better connectivity locally and when traveling to sporting events. My HS daughters phone has 0 connectivity to call or connect to the internet anywhere in her local high school. She wants us to switch and she’s vocal. My recent connectivity issue was attending the Chicago blackhawks hockey game. Everyone was using their phone around me and I couldn’t even text. C’mon. It would be a great present if these things could be fixed :)

    • Singleweird

      dude, switch. t-mobile works GREAT for millions and millions of people, you may not be one of them.

  • rwmgd2

    What’s interesting is I called CS and they said the new plan covered LTE service only. 4G, 3G and 2G would be limited. This rep was either misinformed or the deal is to good to be true. I’d also like to know if you can have four lines for $200. Anyway we’ll find out tomorrow.

    • ABK1337

      That makes no sense at all. Sometimes you’ll have reps who don’t know for sure what they are talking about and make up things like this. If you have the unlimited 4G for a line, it’s unlimited internet of all – 4G, 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, etc. It always tries to get the fastest one IE if 4G LTE is available it’ll do that

  • rwmgd2

    Well I have an update. The rep called me back and said the new plans just populated. $100 for the first two lines. $ 40 for each additional unlimited line. All lines require JUMP.

    • Craig Foster

      How does JUMP work on my Oneplus?

      • rwmgd2

        Well the CS people must be getting misinformation or they are just making stuff up….probably the latter. It is confirmed you don’t need to have JUMP on the account.

      • Craig, JUMP is an insurance plan offered by T mobile that you need to add on to a plan at the moment you sign up, or add a new phone to your line. If you bought the OnePlus, I don’t think you could add it to your service, since A, you didn’t buy it from T mobile, and B, you are already on their service and not a new customer… So unless you somehow buy a new phone on their service and add it then, there’s no way you could get JUMP. I tried re-adding it to my line a while ago, after having cancelled it prior months before since I don’t really need an insurance plan. But, calling tmobile themselves and asking about it never hurts. Hope that helped.

        • Craig Foster

          I was just curious how I was going to get JUMP since the person abode said it was required. Thank you.

    • Singleweird

      no line requires jump. ever.

      • rwmgd2

        The rep I spoke with had no clue and must have been talking out of his a$$. Now that the plan is out we have the correct information.

  • Guest

    Does JUMP work on my Oneplus?

    • MadJoe

      No because JUMP isn’t available without an EIP, but you could probably get the smartphone insurance (do they still offer that exclusive of JUMP?).

  • randian

    I assume that 12GB (3GB per line) isn’t one shared pool. That really limits its appeal.

    • ABK1337

      Limits its appeal how? Have one family member on one of those lines go ham and eat up the data in 1 day, and ruin it for everybody? Or everybody having their set amount equally, and not have to worry about others taking an unfair share of the pie?

  • Al_gotti

    T mobile sucks but I want to thank them again for this because its more leverage I can use against Verizon ; ) now I wont leave Verizon anytime soon but anytime I mention T mobile while talking about my bill on the phone with Verizon it always turns out good for me!

  • Kaylord

    Any update on how to get the free router with activation???

    • AJ

      You can request a free router in-store, whether it’s a new activation or if you are an existing customer. “Free” means that the deposit is waived, but you will still need to return it if you cancel service. Hope this helps. =)

    • Singleweird

      you can just call 611 and get one mailed to you for free. deposits are currently waived.

  • Guest

    It’s 4/$100 for 10GB still. Not 12GB.

  • Singleweird

    the routers and signal boosters are always free for postpaid. were waiving 25 deposits right now so they are free at any store or by mail (free shipping). PLEASE CALL AND GET ONE! the routers are top-of-the-line.

    • Kaylord

      I’m gonna call today after my sims arrived . I have this asus router ac68u and agree that it’s fantastic can always use a second router
