T-Mobile responds to Verizon Unlimited Plan by including HD video and 10GB of high-speed hotspot data on ONE plan

As you might have heard, Verizon launched their Verizon Unlimited plan today, which offers unlimited data*, talk, and text. (Data may be throttled after 22GB in usage per month).

Well, it didn’t take long for T-Mobile and John Legere to respond. Legere took to Twitter just now to announce that T-Mobile ONE plans will now include HD video by default, as well as 10GB of high-speed hotspot data, starting Friday. More to come.

Update: Legere has also teased a promo for 2 lines on T-Mobile ONE for $100 all in.

    Now this plan looks pretty attracting to me, but is it worth the upgrade to the new plan?

    i have the first original simple plan (no canada or mexico calling) 6 lines ($120) with the 2.5gb plan on 3 lines, 2 of the line has $20/line for the grandfathered unlimited plan and 1 line has $20/line for 5gb data, so my monthly plan would be $180 plus tax.

    the new plan (w/ unlimited HD & 10gb hot spot) would consist of 6 lines w/unlimited data which costs $200 a month. plus 3 of the line would get $10 discount each for using less than 2gb. which comes to a total of $170 a month including tax.

    Tempting to upgrade my plan… any pros/cons or suggestions?

    • MadMartigan

      Pretty much in the same boat but without going the auto-pay route. Was considering switching and adding the $25 add-on already. I’m pretty much sold at this point.

      • Petey07

        The autopay kinda make it harder for me because my monthly fees is split into 3 payments, so if I set up autopay from my account, i would have to collect the fees from the other two folks instead of everyone paying their part directly to T-Mobile. Unless, if we can set up Auto-pay to multiple accounts? that would be a deal!

        • MadMartigan

          I just hate auto-pay. I could just about justify the extra $5 per line before this with the kickbacks. Now it just works.

        • Edward Ward

          The autopay is no big deal. Hell, I go in and manually pay my bill before the autopay even has a chance to kick in and I still get the $5 savings. A no brainer.

        • MadMartigan

          Until they take that payment and then accidentally draw the autopay. It still wouldn’t be a huge issue, but credit-wise, at least in the US, it is still better to pay the bills manually.

        • Edward Ward

          Gotcha. That hasn’t happened to me, but I would be right pissed if it did.

        • I’m signed up for autopay, but all that means is if you don’t pay your bill by its due date, then they charge your card. But you can prepay at any point before then, which is what I do.

        • Petey07

          Sounds good, thanks for everyone’s explanation. Obviously, I’m not set up as “autopay” so i have no idea how this work haha.

        • Andrew Singleton

          auto pay will only draft if there is a balance. set it up and tell your fam the due date is 4 days before the actual due date.

    • VK

      I think the new plan is very good compared to the older one you got, I have unlimited on mine, and its been ages since I have stopped looking how much I have used. Plus I have noticed that my use pattern has changed and I am using more youtube than before. Th one thing I did not like was their previous 3G hotspot which they fixed on this new update. I say go with the new.

      • Petey07

        Totally! Same as your reason, it held me back from upgraded to the new plan (extra for HD video streaming & LTE hotspot, also it would costs more than my original plan). But after the several revision, especially the tax included into the plan (which saves me $30 in CA). I think this plan is very good, but we have to see on Friday for the final revision. Thanks Verizon!. The line with the 5GB LTE would definitely benefit from the unlimited LTE speed.

        Thanks for your input, Appreciate it!

    • Locust Gee

      Petey07, I basically have the same plan & lines configuration as you except for your $20 5GB vs. my $10 3GB with stash & all phones have free Canada & Mexico included.

      Was thinking about switching when plan was announced but my 2 unlimited lines had 5GB of LTE hotspot and no limits on Video stream quality.

      Now Legere just made it interesting.

      • Petey07

        I think most of us who have the Simple Choice plans have a better plan than the new TMobile One plan, but with so many revision (such as tax & fees are included in the plan & now the unlimited HD streaming & 10gb hot spots and hopefully many more) make it so ideal. my friends and I are definately going upgrade our plans once we see the final information on the new revision of the plan this friday.

        • Reagan1

          I think you may be right and the better half would love to have unlimited data instead of her 2gb now with Simple Choice. I have the $20 unlimited on top, so our bill is $110/mo because we also have an old @Home phone line. If TMO can keep my @Home at $10 and the free iPad 200mb I got on a previous promo and just switch my 2 cell lines to TMO One, I don’t see a downside…yet. Look forward to reading the fine print on Friday to make final decision.

        • Petey07

          I think you’ll benefit from the new 2 line for $100 TMO One promo plan that’s coming out on Friday. My friend has 3 line, suck that there no promo for that besides 2 lines & 4 lines.

          I totally forgot about the free Data on Demand for life (is that what it’s called Lol) for my three ipads, but 200mb is not much. Since with this new plan, we can hot spot with our phone and use the 10gb LTE instead. I wonder as well with the @Home for $10 a month, I wonder if you can keep that as an add-on to Tmobile-One. I don’t have Home line by the way.

          I have two apple watch under my EIP i wonder if i need to pay $5 for each a month to connect to their service since these watches doesn’t have cellular on them.

          We just have to wait until Friday for the final details. But it does sounds very ideal.

        • Reagan1

          Agreed. Yes, DonD for life, but ok giving that up as we only have 1 iPad on it. Plus, the 10gb tether on TMO 1 makes up for it. With the HD now being reported as a one time turn on, not monthly, only thing to confirm is the @Home line staying at $10/mo and I’m 99% sure I’m switching to the 2 line for $100 TMO 1 offer. Look forward to Friday.

  • GSX

    This seems to decrease the cost benefit of the One Plus (and by extension One Plus International) add-ons, with no mention of either increasing their feature set, or decreasing the cost to make them more compelling.

    • Andrew Singleton

      this was rolled out immediately, as a direct result of the Verizon announcement, so don’t be surprised if this offers redundant features or conflicts with other info.

    • Acdc1a

      Yeah, I get to drop $25 from my bill. I’m all for that.

    • Ben

      I’m assuming 1+Int will go down to $85ish and be rebranded as One International or something. 1+ will most likely go away.

  • Andrew Singleton

    TWEET #8 = 2/100 starts Friday!

  • TaskForce141

    Waiting for the fine print on this…
    I think the default setting for video will still be SD 480p and Binge ON.
    But there will be a switch in the T-Mobile app to flip it to 720p at no extra charge.
    1080p unlimited? No, or at least not without buying a day pass.

    • Corey Jalette

      None full hd video including 4k!

  • Mike

    Now we wait and see what att will come up with.

    • Acdc1a

      It will be lame and have fees, lots of fees.

      Love the price war this is going to start.

  • Corey Jalette

    Looked at this earlier was pretty impressed but still wasn’t worth leaving my 2/$100 promo. But now with another 2/$100 promo that includes taxes and fees, that sounds very interesting to me. My tethering would go up from 7gb to 10gb per line. And all taxes and fees included. Hd video was what was holding me back. But now I see no excuse not to change over. Especially since all the new plan promos are for the new plan. Might as well jump on board while I can.

    Has anyone found anything out as to what the catch may be if any? I’m not seeing a downside right now. Lol

    • Tony Chen

      its an introductory pricing meaning its a temporrary pricing for verizon they can increase the price once introductory price is over for verizon.

      • Corey Jalette

        I’m not talking about Verizon…. lol

  • pseudoswede

    I would be interested in the 2/$100 if additional lines were $20 each. I’m fine with my $60 Simple Choice Family with $5 AAL. I also have the grandfathered $10 account-wide stateside international landline & mobile feature, which I would lose if I switched to another plan.

    • GersonT1000

      Having to pay $25/line for the international plan is really what’s holding me back. I have it on all my lines for $5 total and about 3 of the lines actually use it. If I switched to this new plan, I would have to pay $75 extra for those 3 lines to have the feature, which is just too much. I don’t know why they make this so expensive, it used to be like $10 per line.

      • pseudoswede

        It’s because they bundled it with unlimited LTE hotstop. If they made it $25 per account, I actually might consider switching.

  • AussieB

    Still too expensive for people like me that don’t need unlimited data. If you’re doing $100/2,ehy not for once do something for single people paying their own way. I’d give Tmobile another try, but I haven’t paid over $45 since I left Tmobile years ago. Paying even less currently with Fi

    • gmo8492

      If you don’t use a lot of data I cannot recommend project Fi enough to my friends. But unfortunately at the rate I consume data I would be paying close to $300 a month alone on project Fi.

      • Acdc1a

        I’d probably pay even more. The flip side to the “I don’t need much data” argument is I’ve been able to replace my home internet. $50 back in my pocket monthly.

  • Mike

    Too late TMO, my 6 lines left to Verizon first thing this morning. Good riddance bad reception, 0.5mbps speeds, and disgusting super bowl commercials!

    • Tony Chen

      it an introduction pricing for unlimited verizon once its introductory pricing is over your price can increase.

      • Mike

        Still worth it! Especially with better reception and data speeds.

        • Andrew Leonard

          Better data speeds is a filthy lie.

        • Acdc1a

          Better speeds where? Not most places I’ve been.

    • gmo8492

      LOL, good bye.

      • Mike

        Bye Felicia!

        • gmo8492

          I did know your name was Felicia ;)

    • lomsha

      How were the commercials disgusting?

    • Locust Gee

      Maybe if you moved out of that dump of yours & into a better MSA code – business would invest in zip.

      No honor in paying more for you living in a hell hole.

    • Nick Hammerschmidt

      Enjoy your at least $40 per month higher bill.

  • Chris Collins

    I wonder if the $10 credit for low data usage will still apply? I use around a GB a month on my two lines I currently have 2 6gb lines for 80 if the credit’s there that might make it worth it.

    • Andrew Leonard

      Per the news release, it is still there.

      “Don’t forget, with T-Mobile Kickback, you get PAID BACK up to $10 per line when you use less data. And only T-Mobile offers the Un-contract pricing guarantee, so ONLY you have the power to change the price you pay.”

  • GreatNews

    The only question here is: is it worth changing from the old promotion plan $100 2 lines Unlimited everything plan which actually gives you even 1440p contents? Or its not worth the change? Also I have now 4 lines will this my total be $200?

    • Justin Michael Feld

      Thats what i was wondering im going to do more research when time comes they offer it… It offers more Hotspot data and also has simple choice north America so at this present moment it doesn’t make much sense not to switch because it appears to offer more for the same price including full speed video. I wonder if its a limited time plan price. That would be the deal breaker at this point

      • GreatNews

        Let me know what you find

    • T Redd

      i was wondering the same thing.

  • stuman19741974 .

    So while 2 lines is $100, will 4 lines still be $160? Or will that drop to $140?

    • pseudoswede

      If you read the official press release on T-Mobile’s website, four lines is still $160.

    • GreenMonkeyPants

      How much for 3 lines? $140?

      • Corey Jalette

        Yea

  • Jason Caprio

    This is going to put a LOT of pressure on T-Mobile to focus more on raw coverage than perks. Verizon having Unlimited data again is HUUUGGGEE!!!!!

  • Jason Caprio

    I’ve been on Verizon since Nov. 2016 and will never look back. It’s nice to have a phone that just WORKS everywhere!

    • RideScheduler.com

      >will never look back
      Except to look back on tmonews ? :)

      • Jason Caprio

        I’m a creature of habit lol

    • Acdc1a

      But it doesn’t.

      • Jason Caprio

        What is the general area that you use T-Mobile that you have such a great experience? T-Mobile is very inconsistent around North-East Philadelphia as well as Trenton, NJ. Not so much with signal strength, but data speeds/reliability.

        • Acdc1a

          My 2 places I am the most are South Florida and Detroit. Verizon is excellent, albeit slow in Detroit. In Southeast Florida they may as well not have a network. It’s truly bad. Working to central and western Florida, Verizon does better but AT&T is better yet.

        • Jason Caprio

          I used T-Mobile around a friend’s house in Clermont, FL about 45 mins outside Orlando. It was terrible! Speeds rarely exceeding 1Mbit/sec. In his house it would bounce between 2 – 3 bars of LTE with unusable speeds and 2 bars of semi-useful HSPA. His AT&T phone was pulling 40Mbits at his house. Downtown Orlando it worked fine. At Universal Studios it was not working at all. This was Dec. 2015.

        • Acdc1a

          Orlando and the surrounding areas are unique. No one has great service though AT&T is probably the best. You’ll find your Verizon phone equally useless at Universal. Too many people, not enough capacity. It’s why they offer free Wi-Fi throughout the park, it’s not because they’re charitable.

        • Bryant

          And with 140 million Verizon customers on an already slower network on average (beyond your buddy’s house), it should be interesting being a Verizon customer from now on! This should help Tmo’s average upload and download speeds be even higher than everyone else.

        • nappent

          lol you are comparing with something in 2015. A LOT has changed since then with the Tmobile network… a lot!

        • Nick Hammerschmidt

          Troll

        • mreveryphone

          I worked on Detroit for a few months and tmobile service was rock solid up there. I did a speed test and got upwards of 70+ mbps… I did some work in a hospital and building penetration stayed solid throughout the building.

        • Acdc1a

          Detroit isn’t even fair. Omnipoint started that network, Voicestream deployed more spectrum after the merger. Then obviously T-Mobile bought a mature network.

          MetroPCS bought the old AT&T Wireless Service spectrum (they had a phenomenal footprint). As soon as the reverse merger with T-Mobile and 700 MHz deployment happened, no one else even came close.

        • Oscar OI

          You keep posting about the advantages of Verizon and I keep wondering why is it that you keep visiting this site. Why do care about Tmo news when you are such a huge Vz person? Nonsense.

        • Bradley Gartz

          In Trenton I get amazing speeds. Never an issue.

        • Reagan1

          Interesting. I commuted from Wilmington to Princeton for a few years and had no problem with TMO. Every once in awhile I’d get a dropped call on 95, but that’s about it. I’ve had a VZ phone and TMO phone in the last couple years and where I traveled they were almost equal in coverage unless in the boonies…then, I agree VZ usually has better coverage.

        • Jesse Wilson

          Service in the Tampa area get up to 125MBPS, verizon sucks down here sadly until you get into the country parts, that’s where verizon has it!

        • They_Call_Me_Bruce

          I live right outside NE Philly and checked my speed this weekend, Tmobile 75/22, Comcast 55/6.

      • Phone Guy

        He probably thinks everywhere is the moon, mars, and the space station, too. Ha!

    • Mike

      now this is cell service!

    • Johnny 5

      I live in NE Philly. Never had any issues, dropped calls, or anything. I have good speeds too. Even getting better signal going into the city on El. As long as all the network keep getting better its all good.

  • Dark enV

    Does using the hotspot to stream video count against your data with T-Mobile One or is it like BingeOn?

    • Acdc1a

      You use data.

    • Bryant

      Using any hotspot data counts against the 10GB, doesn’t matter what it’s for. Only unlimited on smartphone use.

    • jmt

      BingeOn does not exist with ONE. All data counts toward the 28gb throttle.

  • Joe

    3 lines with 6 GB per line and roll over is still better than this new plan when I only pay $85 for it.

    • Phone Guy

      How often do you reshare this?

  • Tim

    My sister and I will be switching to the 2 for $100 tmobile plan from metro pcs. Saving $20 a month plus all the tmobile perks = No brainer

  • portaltonowhere

    will this be available for the taxes excluded plans as well?

    • Acdc1a

      Why would you not want your taxes included?

      • portaltonowhere

        I have a promo where my 4th line is free. I wasn’t sure if the promo would transfer to the taxes included plan. I did some research and found out that it is, so I’ll be switching to the taxes included tonight!

        • Acdc1a

          Watch out. I had free lines and while they’re discounted, it’s no longer free. $130 for 4 lines compared to $120 before the fees were included. Still saves me money.

        • portaltonowhere

          yeah, i checked on the FAQ and it says “If you have the 4th line free promo, you currently pay $140 plus taxes and fees for 4 lines. The new offer for those customers is 4 lines for $150 with taxes and fees included. These customers will save even more money than with the promo!”

          I’m still going to call up just to make sure I’m getting this, but it seems like a great deal!!

          Also, that free line isn’t heavily used so I’ll add kickback to it & get the $10 back that’ll be added with the switch to the TI plan.

  • Ryan Steiner

    Stinks if you have to leave the country. I love my free world wide data and text

    • Mike

      I have never been outside the states actually but I’m okay with sacrificing that for a consistent network where I live and work. Speeds tests at home: Tmobile 8mbps while Verizon does 40-50. Not to mention better signal strength.

      • Acdc1a

        You should get out more.

        • Dylan

          I’m sorry your terrible TMO reception has your panties in a bunch :(

    • fromtheright

      Sprint free global roaming worked better than T-Mobile free International roaming in the Middle East for me. Classic example to prove my point is Dubai.

  • David Firebaugh

    The only way you get is if you agree to auto bill pay

    • Andrew Leonard

      Taxes included means the same bill every month that can go to a credit card. What is the down side?

  • mreveryphone

    Think I’m still going to keep my $20 truly unlimited grandfathered data plan… I just can’t give it up…

    • Acdc1a

      $70+ taxes and fees vs. $70 all in? Do you have a corporate discount?

      • mreveryphone

        Yes. I get two corporate discounts. And lately it seems that my taxes have been included… I’ll have to keep an eye on that…

  • Philip

    Do I stay put on my 4 lines for $150 with true unlimited everything and 14GB hotspot each?

    • gmo8492

      Yes, since you are able to stream full HD and higher without getting a day pass. It’s also cheaper.

      • DM725

        They just said they are getting rid of the day passes for HD streaming on the One plan…

        • Corey Jalette

          You will only have to activate it once each month in the app instead of having to do it daily.

  • mikeZo6

    Do people who have grandfather $20 unlimited get HD video already ?
    and no data cap ? CAUSE TMOBILE SAID NO they don’t ??

    • Phil

      Yes.
      HD video & No data cap with 20.00 Unlimited data plan.
      After 28gb used you will be alerted in text that speed may get reduced if on congested tower.
      I’ve never experienced the reduced speed . I use around 60GB monthly

      • ROD

        Lately, I’ve been getting those messages more often and I’m definitely getting throttled/ depriortized 50%-60% of the time.

    • mreveryphone

      Yes sir!

  • nearvanaman

    Cue posts from people who feel obligated to detail how their grandfathered plans are still better value :)

  • mikeZo6

    thanks

  • Aleks

    This is actually better than the original two lines for 100 promo. You get 10gb of Hotspot rather than 7 plus no taxes. Damn. There isn’t much separating the original to this new promo plan.

    Not sure if I should switch while the fire is hot as the fight seems to be bringing some good deals on both sides.

    Whoooooo……keep yourselves updated folks, this might just be what we’ve been waiting for, unlimited plans with all the perks.

    Cheers.

  • ancho84

    I currently have 10 lines, one of them was free during black friday. What would my new plan look like if I switch? How much is it per line after the first 4? Does anyone know if the free line stays free?

  • What took T-Mobile so damn long to include LTE hotspot with their One plan?

    • Basically

      Competition.

  • a d00d

    While the TMo vs VZW war is going on in here and between the companies, I can’t help but notice that none of the carriers including TMo have said one peep about the new Sprint $90/5 lines plan. Yeah, it’s sort of a trap, but it HAS to be answered somehow.

    I had my phone stolen a week ago and the new Sprint plan came out on Friday. After considering it and talking with my sister (who also needs a new phone AND carrier) and her deciding she’s going to do her own thing, I decided to go back to Plan A for me and stick on TMo and get the Huawei Mate 9 which won’t work on non-Chinese CDMA carriers (i.e., no Sprint, VZW, etc, except for LTE). (GS8+ is better on paper, but with the batteries catching fire in the factory (Samsung says in the trash, fire dept says on the production lines for the GS8!) and the incredible user reviews of the Mate 9, I had to go with the Huawei–besides, it’s good to give someone besides Qualcomm money once in a while!)

    • a d00d

      Oh, and before someone points it out, YES, I know the whole point is that the $90/5 line plan is a Hail Mary for a company at the point of bankruptcy (if Softbank hadn’t bought them–very likely worst decision Son-san made in his career!) with no money to upgrade and bleeding customers. The old Cricket/Leap and MetroPCS proved the concept that poor people will pay cheap for poor service, and obviously Sprint hopes that will work one more time…

      • Bklynman

        If only Sprint can get there act together,they can very easy go back to being number 3,push to number 2,no I don’t have Sprint or do i work for them,just hoping they do back into the game it would better for us,the buyers.

        • Acdc1a

          I don’t buy that for a second. Verizon bled postpaid phone subscribers or had very modest gains for years before reacting. Success breeds high rates.

          Having two scrappy underdog carriers has done wonders for the market.

        • a d00d

          Bklynman, Sprint has done very little upgrading to their networks because they have no money, which is why they are so slow. There is no way they can catch up now unless Son wants to dump a *LOT* of money into them or Ergen buys half and dumps money in (seems unlikely, though).

          Unlike T-Mobile USA, which has one of the best CEO’s in *ANY* company’s recent history, Sprint has had a string of the worst, with subsequent bad decisions:

          Nextel: proprietary iDEN (“i” before apple took it) network that any idiot would see would be a bitch to integrate into another network, and lo, it was! (AFAIK, it never worked right to this day, please correct me if I’m wrong.)

          WiMAX: everyone else went LTE, Sprint was the only carrier (in USA) to go WiMAX. You don’t bet against Qualcomm in the baseband, they are the EXPERTS! Almost everyone tied to it lost, but Sprint was the only major cellular carrier.

          Only buying 2600 MHz spectrum: no building penetration speaks for itself. (It’s nothing compared to the new 28 GHz 5G stuff, though, which is definitely an “I’ll believe it when I see it work” thing.) Oh, and the upper end of this band is next to the radar band that NEXRAD and other radars run on, resulting in interference in places. (Those straight lines you see on some of them are interference from Sprint!)

          If I were superstitious, I’d swear they were cursed. In any case, they are the bottom rung BY FAR of the national carriers, and I don’t see that changing without a sweeping change in management (probably the whole board) and a GIANT infusion of cold, hard cash!

        • Bklynman

          Thanks for sharing,I know about Nextel,Iden,have no idea about that one,Wimax yes. I didn’t realize Wimax,,was in lack of a better word in the running against LTE. If Son want Sprint to get back into the game he has no other choice but dump money into it,i could be wrong on this one,just going by what I read on here,i was under the impression Sprint has more spectrum than Tmoblie,like I said just going on what other write on here,if they could get there act together it would be better for us,consumer.

      Unlike VZW, AT&T and T-Mo, nobody Sprint as a real threat. At least not short term. Even T-Mo doesn’t care about them and let their prepaid brand MetroPCS go after it instead. T-Mo will only respond If the twin bells does something that could destroy their momentum.

      What shocked us all was Big Red was triggered to respond to T-Mobile. They must’ve lost millions of customers and started cutting into their bottom line so they had no choice but to respond. AT&T will soon join in the fun. VZW just opened the floodgates.

  • john

    Does the Tmobile one plan for 2 includes free calls, texts and data in Canada ? I had unlimited plan but switched back to 10gig plan cos I needed the north american plan.
    Pls confirm.

    • Kaulana1989

      Yes it does unlimited calling texting and data in Canada and Mexico

  • Mark

    I’m considering changing my plan to T-Mobile one. Currently I’m paying $120+taxes and fees for 4 lines 10gb simple choice. I also have 2 additional lines on the “on us” free promo and 2 tablets with 5gb with binge on unlimited (prior “Data Match” tablet promo) $8.5×2.

    Also, I have an unlimited till 2019 promo on my account with 10gb tether.

    T-Mobile said I if I change to T-Mobile One that I would be charged $120 for 4 lines and $20 for the other 2 making it the same as 4 lines with T-Mobile one with taxes and fees included.

    However, I was previously told that I could leave my tablets on simple choice. But now I’m being told that I have to switch them to T-Mobile one.

    My issue is that if I can’t keep my tablets on simple choice it makes my monthly fee more expensive than now. Because the tablets primarily consume BingeOn data unlimited for 8.5 not $20.

    Should I make the switch?

    • Jesus Rosales

      Wait so if simple choice customers switch we get a cheaper rate from everyone? I am confused. Please explain.

    • Bklynman

      All depends,how much data you use,don’t forgot sooner than later your tablet will be outdated faster than your phone. If you have unlimited data until 2019,why switch now?

      • Mark

        That’s what I’m thinking. However, a lot of the promos require T-Mobile one and they are leaving out simple choice customers. Also, my tablets do use more than 2gb. But they are using bingeon data so it shows that my chargeable data is under 2gb. If I switch to T-Mobile one I’d be using more than 2gb since bingeon doesn’t exist for those customers.

        Also, I’m risking that T-Mobile one may get more expensive in the future if I make the switch.

        And I find that I update my tablets less since I’m mainly using my iPad for movies.

        • Corey Jalette

          T-Mobile one isn’t going to get more expensive, and if it did for some reason, then you would still be able to keep your current plan just like you’re still paying for the older plan you’re on.

        • Bklynman

          Don’t forget,if u switch now,no matter what they do later you will locked in. Remember,at one point TMO had unlimited plan before for $70. then they raise it to lillte by little until it got to $95. TMO does have a one plan for tablets for $75. $50 off if u have one plan with your phone ,just another phone line I forgot which,just go to TMO site you will find it. Good luck.

    • mrmcman

      what I do know is if you switch to the T-mobile plan, EVERYTHING has to be switched to it. I had a problem with my Digits number and my On Demand free 200mb a month for life for my tablet. Both had to be switched or canceled.

      • Corey Jalette

        Yeah I’m losing the free 200mb of data too but I just cancelled it because we get hotspot on the phones anyway. And a lot more than 200mb lol

        • Reagan1

          Ah, ok, thanks for the info. I have the same thing and with the hotspot of 10gb, I guess I don’t really care about the “free” 200mb I got on a previous promo. Looking like I may switch from SC to this new TMO 1 plan…ASSUMING they don’t make you “turn on” HD data every month. What a pain, if so.

        • Corey Jalette

          Yes so far it looks like it’s once a month. As of right now though you have to activate those every single day and pay more for them. So once a month and included is very welcome.

      • Mark

        If I cancel the plan altogether can I keep my 200mb for life?

        • Corey Jalette

          Like cancel your entire T-Mobile service and just keep the tablet with the 200mb? Even though it’s free, it’s only free because of having a phone line on the account. With a phone on the account you get a $10 discount for tablets. They have you on a “on demand” data plan that costs $10 but with discount it’s free. If you only have the tablet left on the plan then you’ll have to pay $10 a month just for 200mb.

  • mingkee

    I will not get this plan.
    The tablet plan is $75 which is way too much.

    • John Young

      $50 credit if you have voice lines on acct.

      • Corey Jalette

        Plus you get 5$ off per line if you have auto pay on. So it would only be $20 with a voice line.

  • Need more info and need to see the fine print. I’m trying to figure out the main differences between this and the old SC 2/100. One complication is that I have two devices on the Match My Data promo, which was $5 for 5. How would that be affected? Do I need to migrate my wearables plan as well? Also, is One video in this promo capped at any specific resolution? I almost never use more than 720 (360-480 most of the time), but it’s something I’m curious about. Does TMO more aggressively monitor One accounts? Customers have mentioned receiving 28gb warning texts, and I’ve never seen one of those. While I try to stay under, I’ve definitely exceeded that over the past two months because of DirecTV Now and college basketball (not speculating; I’ve checked my total usage).

    • Corey Jalette

      no specific resolution its whatever its broadcasted at meaning 4k and all

      • Thanks! I still have a few more questions. Going to start a new post.

  • Bryan Pizzuti

    Ok, THIS might make me switch to it.

  • DM725

    I consider auto billing my credit card both a convenience and a reasonable proposition. My CC company can and will dispute a charge that I don’t authorize so what is the risk?

    You don’t have to worry about paying the bill, you get a notification and a bill summary of what it is if you choose to look at it.

  • DM725

    Does anyone know if you can switch 2 of 8 lines to T-Mobile One while keeping the rest on a simple choice plan?

    Also, does anybody know if you can get a state employee discount on the T-Mobile One plans? I am currently paying $31 per line for the Simple Choice 6GB plan (only 6 of the 8 lines are used, otherwise it would be $23 per line) when you add in the taxes. I know I’ll end up paying a little more but if I have to convert all 6 lines it’ll end up being a lot more.
    Thanks.

    • Corey Jalette

      I think you have to switch them all. I Can’t have a tablet on the simple choice plan and have phones on the one plan they all have to be on the same plan. Atleast that’s my situation right now. So I cancelled my tablet because it was free on simple choice. But costs 20$ on the one plan for tablets. also I don’t believe you can get any type of discount like you mentioned. I’ve seen many people complaining about that online. So it would be $160 for 4 lines + $20 per line after that. 6 lines/ $200. 8 lines $240.

      • DM725

        If that truly is the case, and I can get 6 lines for $200 then I will do it. I am currently paying $184 for 6 lines after taxes for the 6GB simple choice including my state employee discount. I will investigate but I thought that the it was $100 for 2 lines only, I didn’t realize it gets better the more lines you add.

        • Corey Jalette

          Yeah the more lines you add it gets cheaper. Normally it’s 120 for two lines 140 for 3 and 160 for 4. And so on. Not a bad deal at all. OH and you get 10$ Back with kickback for EACH LINE that uses less than 2gb that month. So if two out of your 6 lines use less than 2gb a month you’ll get 10$ /line = $20 off your bill making it only $180

        • DM725

          Oh wow, that kickback will definitely help. There are 2 of our 6 lines that definitely won’t use 2GB. Thanks!

        • Acdc1a

          If you have any free lines on your account it’s possible that you will qualify for additional discounts to make the change.

        • Mark

          Double check. If you have the 2 lines on us promo I was told you get 4 lines for $120 and the 5th & 6th line for $20. Making 6 lines the same as 4. The rep mentioned that certain customers require special handling.

        • DM725

          Yea we have 6 lines paid for and 2 lines on us. I really only need 6 lines though, the other 2 are just sitting there.

        • stuman19741974 .

          I still have Simple Choice, but 2 of my 7 lines (1 phone and 1 tablet) were bought on the 2 Lines on Us promo. If I were to convert to T-Mobile One, would I still be able to have the benefit of those 2 free lines? If not, then it would make no sense to even consider TMo1.

  • jay

    Well i can now drop my t mobile add on of $25 for unlimited tethering, only use it for car rides with the kids and i dont use anything close to 10gb a month. So thank you tmobile for saving me money. I am just wondering, I know At&t offers unlimited to those that have Directv, do they go to just unlimited like verizon just did? I think they are going to want a piece of the pie. Because people will leave att just to go to verizon. I believe its going to get interesting in the coming weeks, especially it att follows verizon.

    • DM725

      AT&T already had a large portion of customers leave for Verizon and T-Mobile over the last 12 months so they have to do something.

      • NapoPeb

        Do they? T doesn’t seem interested in being a carrier. They want to be a TV / entertainment provider it appears.

        • DM725

          Yes? Because AT&T is a business and they need to maintain their subscriber base… I don’t think AT&T getting surpassed by T-Mobile and ending 2017 as the #3 wireless carrier in the U.S. is in their playbook.

        • NapoPeb

          There doesn’t appear to be any threat of #3 happening (unfortunately).

        • DM725

          You should check the LTE data in the article posted in regards to LTE Availability and LTE Speed. AT&T is already #3. Their customer base has been catching on the last 18 months. I know a few doze friends and coworkers off the top of my head that left AT&T the last year alone.

        • NapoPeb

          They don’t care. Seriously. Wireless is not a priority for T currently.

          Suggest you read some decent research papers. Start here: http://www.beyonddevic.es/2016/10/22/att-doubles-down-on-the-ampersand/

    • sbgrizdan

      For always-on, easy to use car hotspot usage, you can also get the free Tmobile SyncUP Drive device (https://explore.t-mobile.com/t-mobile-sync-up-drive). It has several cool functions, including the hotspot. It does require a $20/mo 2GB service plan.

      • GersonT1000

        I think it would be better to get a regular extra line on Tmo One plan for $20/month, and a cheap phone to act as a hotpot. That would give you 10gb at the same price.

  • Alex Zapata

    Verizon isn’t actually offering a bad deal…..

    • DM725

      It’s just more expensive

      • Alex Zapata

        It’s more expensive, but the coverage makes up for it unless you stay in a metro area.

    • Drewski

      I agree Alex. I will be returning back to Verizon within the next couple of months or so, for their 50 Dollar Unlimited Talk, Text and 7GB of 4GLTE Data plan through Walmart. I soooo cannot wait to leave Sprint for Verizon. I already left T-Mobile-MetroPCS almost a month ago now. I now shall return right on back to using Verizon Wireless.

  • Wylan

    So at this point theres no reason to keep my simple choice unlimited plan and should make the switch to one right?

    • Acdc1a

      Under very limited circumstances would you want to keep Simple Choice unlimited at this point.

    • Corey Jalette

      Pretty much yeah. I was on the old 2/100 plan and this makes it cheaper. Not by much but hey 13$ is 13$every month is savings.

    • Brian Richards

      Yeah, I had simple choice 2 lines for 100 plus all the taxes and jump it’s more like 150.

      What are these day passes? I would like to get a little cheaper, but I don’t want to introduce any inconveniences. We both watch HD video regularly.

    • PlanetVaster

      That’s correct, I would definitely recommend switching to the new ONE plan when the 2 lines for $100/month promo starts on Feb. 17

  • They_Call_Me_Bruce

    How much more data does HD eat compared to DVD quality? If you are someone who watches a lot of video couldn’t this be counterproductive since your unlimited data is technically 20some GBs?

    • Wylan

      Video doesnt count towards your data usage if its amazon, youtube, hbnow, netflix, sling, hulu, espn, fandango, and about 100 others.

      https://www.t-mobile.com/offer/binge-on-streaming-video.html

      • They_Call_Me_Bruce

        Ok, I wasn’t sure how that part factored in. Didn’t know if they kept those from counting towards your data since you are “unlimited.”

        • Acdc1a

          Wylan is misinforming you. On BOTH programs, BingeOn and traditional unlimited plans, ALL data counts toward your 28GB soft cap.

        • NapoPeb

          It’s not a soft cap. Has anyone ever been impacted by their ‘low prioritisation’ if a tower is busy? I haven’t.

        • CalicoKJ

          Yes. My SO has on his tablet. He’s under the 5GB “high speed” cap, but at 28+GB overall. Speeds have been reduced.

        • Acdc1a

          It sure is. I’ve been de-prioritized. It’s not pretty… Luckily it’s not long lasting.

        • Walt

          When youre depriortizied try manually switching to hspa 4G

        • NapoPeb

          That’s not a soft cap, though, I do understand what you’re saying.

          A soft cap is always limiting you to a certain speed after you reach a set limit. T-Mobile (and VZW) do _not_ do this. They only de-prioritise you if you’re attached to a cell site that is a certain percent saturated at the point of connection. There’s a huge difference between what TMUS / VZW do and a standard ‘soft cap’.

        • Acdc1a

          No, you’ve defined a hard cap. A soft cap only slows you when necessary.

        • NapoPeb

          A hard cap is where no more data would flow.

        • Acdc1a

          You are mistaken. A hard cap is a limit that you hit where you are throttled 100% of the time from that point forward in your billing cycle.

        • NapoPeb

          No. That’s a soft cap.

        • Acdc1a

          And you are hard headed. I don’t know how else to put it in plain English for you. A hard cap is a degradation of service after you hit a set limit in your wireless data allotment. A soft cap is when you MAY experience a degradation of service after you hit a limit as determined by the carrier and only on an as needed basis.

        • NapoPeb

          You continue to be wrong.

          I hate citing Wikipedia, but it’s the first Google hit:

          A hard cap represents a maximum amount that may not be exceeded for any reason.
          A soft cap represents an amount which may be exceeded in limited circumstances, but otherwise exceeding the cap will trigger a penalty which is known in advance

        • Locust Gee

          But on One plans – does Video Streaming count towards the overall 28GB?

        • Acdc1a

          Yes.

    • Mark

      I’ve noticed watching movies from my Plex server that a 2 hour 1080p is a couple gigs and if I watch the same movie reduced to 480p it’s about 500-700mb

  • Aleks

    I’m going to do some more research on the new 2 for 100 plan without taxes as it could have some caveats, so before you change I suggest to read the fine print and the new TOS that goes with the plan. Don’t do it until you are sure that everything will be positive for you in the long term.

    • Acdc1a

      You’ve had a day to do so already. There are no gotcha’s that aren’t already in the terms of service except it requires auto-pay.

      • Reagan1

        Has it been confirmed that HD is included or do you have to “activate” it every month via app/web? I haven’t seen clarification on that yet.

        • NapoPeb

          You have to activate the pass within your TMobile account once every billing period. You then have full unrestricted bandwidth for videos.

          What irritated me most about TMobile is they claim to be ‘data strong’ yet put as many roadblocks in place (be it financial or technical) to allow their customers to stream video at >480p. It’s a con and they should be called out for it.

        • Acdc1a

          Lame! Why not keep everyone’s network experience as good as possible? 480p is fine in most instances.

        • Corey Jalette

          I disagree, on bigger phones anything less than 720p is very noticeable. Atleast for me. My eyes suck lol

        • Reagan1

          Ars Technica is reporting, per TMO, that it will now be one and done when you turn on HD with the new TMO 1 plans. Default will be 480p, but if you go into your account and turn on HD, it will remain…no monthly turn on. Great news, if correct.

        • NapoPeb

          480p is crap. End of.

          720p should be the minimum viewing for a video on a modern smartphone screen.

        • calvin35

          I completely agree with you.

        • NapoPeb

          Do you always miss the point?

          I’ll repeat my point: T-Mobile claims to be ‘DATA STRONG’, yet they are clearly not, given their obsession with forcing people into using these irritating daily HD passes. If they had confidence in their network – as VZW does – they’d just give you full bandwidth whenever available.

          They don’t. They’re not ‘data strong’. Simple.

  • dan

    Someone mentioned there is some tmo fine print about half your data usage must be on the primary device… meaning not doing 1gb on your phone and then 10gb tethered. Is this true?

    • Corey Jalette

      That sounds ridiculous to me. And this is the first I’ve heard.

    • Acdc1a

      This was from the first flavor of the ONE plan. Now that tethering is de-prioritized they’ve removed that little nugget.

      Despite clowns here complaining, T-Mobile has done a fine job of network management.

      • Sectime

        always read the fine print… basic life lesson.

  • So if anyone can help me out, I’d appreciate it.

    My current bill, after taxes, is $152.92. This gives me the following:

    * Unlimited Line #1 with talk, text, LTE data, and 7gb hotspot
    * Unlimited Line #2 with talk, text, LTE data, and 7gb hotspot
    * Match My Data Tablet Line with 5gb LTE and unlimited throttled afterwards
    * Match My Data Mobile Hotspot Line with 5gb LTE and unlimited throttled afterwards
    * Wearables Promo with 500mb LTE
    * Jump V1

    All of the above are BingeOn, Music Freedom, Overseas, and GoGo In-flight eligible.

    I haven’t looked into TMO One much, but as far as I can tell, I’d have to migrate everything over to a One plan if I took advantage of this. The Tablet Plan is $75, but I guess there’s a $50 rebate when you have voice lines? I don’t even see a Hotspot One plan, and so I’m assuming that would get thrown on to its own Tablet One plan. The Wearables One plan is another $20, and I’m not sure if it’s eligible for any discounts.

    If those details are correct (and maybe I’m missing / misunderstanding something), then it would look like my new bill would be $170, which would obviously be a step backward with the exception of unlimited tethering and unlimited tablet LTE (and possibly unlimited LTE for the mobile hotspot device).

    Any thoughts? What would I be gaining / losing? Does One still have overseas and in-flight benefits packaged in with the promo plan above? Do they more aggressively monitor the 28gb cap on One plans? I’ve been over 28 for the past two months from watching DirecTV Now and college basketball, and I’ve not received any warning text messages that other users have reported.

    Ultimately, I’ll obviously go and talk to a sales rep about all of this, but I’m crowdsourcing to the awesome TMO community to figure out if it’s even worth my time to explore it. I also like knowing in advance what I’m possibly getting into when I enter a conversation like this with a sales rep.

    Greatly appreciate any help, thoughts, advice!

    • Acdc1a

      I’m getting $125 all in plus the cost of Jump. This is my math:
      $100 for 2 voice lines
      $20 for 1 tablet
      $5 for the wearable.

      No need for a hotspot any longer.

      If it were me, I’d seriously consider the changes.

    • PlanetVaster

      Switching the the one plan should only cost $125 (not including jump).
      $100 for 2 lines
      $20 for tablet
      10 gb of lte + unlimited throttled hotspot is included in the ONE plan.
      $5 for wearable

      I would highly recommend you upgrade to the new plan when 2 lines for $100/month promo starts on Feb 17

      • Petey07

        you can hotspot your tablet to your phone if you use less than 10gb a month on the tablet, which would save you $20. Costs would be $105 a month.

      • Thanks!

  • Dan

    If youre currently a tmobile customer and on a promotion can you switch to another promotion? Ie to the new 2 for $100?

    • Corey Jalette

      Yes you can.

    • PlanetVaster

      Yes, you just can’t switch back to your old plan at its promotional price.

  • Uri

    I have the old promo 2/100$ Don’t know if I should switch but I might do so I would save $10 Plus taxes to.. because I am pain for Mexico to Canada International call now with the new 2/100$ Comes with it not bad of a deal…. +10 GB of hotspot better than 7GB let me know if there’s a catch people on the new plan thank you happy Valentine’s Day

    • Corey Jalette

      Nothing aside from you need auto pay on, and you have to enable hd video the beginning of each billing cycle. (Previously it was required to be done daily and cost extra on the original one plan) other than that you save money, and get more tethering. The rest is the same as far as I know.

      • Reagan1

        Looks like TMO listened and now when u turn on HD for the new TMO One plans, it will REMAIN on HD. Default will be 480p, so if you don’t go into your account and turn HD on, it will remain there. This is being reported now and quoting official TMO folks. Hope that it’s true and no monthly turn on.

    • PlanetVaster

      Not really any major caveats/catchs. I would recommend you upgrade to the new plan when the 2/$100 promo starts on Feb 17

    • NardVa

      The new 2 for $100 is a better deal if you don’t mind autopay and flipping the HD toggle once a month.

  • KayTee

    Is the 100 all in worth it? I have 2 lines on select choice plan. Base plan is $50 for unlimited talk and text. $20 per line for unlimited 4g LTE.

    • NardVa

      Right now you are at $90 before taxes and you have 5GB of hotspot per line. If you upgrade to the new 2 for $100, your hotspot goes up to 10GB per line and depending on you taxes you might save a little. If you don’t mind doing autopay and enabling the HD pass every month it might be worth a switch.

    • PlanetVaster

      So that’s $90 + taxes and fees is almost $100 your paying now. Yes on Feb 17 I would recommend you take the deal 2 lines on the unlimited ONE plan for $100/month

      • KayTee

        Thanks, I’ll wait for the fine print

  • vplaza

    Getting close, but not really quite there yet to make sense for me to move our four lines from the Simple Choice North America 10GB plans that we are on. It costs $120 + taxes & fees, totaling around $134.67 per month. It’s rare that any of us goes over 5GB of data per month, so going unlimited isn’t really a benefit.

    I do like that they’ve fixed the baloney about tethering and HD video, so they’re almost to where it might make sense eventually to migrate to the ONE plans.

    • Mark

      You might as well. If you want to take advantage of the other miscellaneous offers that T-Mobile has. They are only making them valid with a T-Mobile one plan.

      • vplaza

        If they have a phone deal for the S8, I might do it.

  • PlanetVaster

    I have a question. I’ve been a T-Mo fan for a long time. 2 Years ago I used a prepaid plan on T-Mo, but last year I joined my family’s plan on Sprint because I got more data (and to upgrade to a new phone). We’re thinking about switching the family plan over to T-Mo. Right now we only have 3 lines but will be adding another member soon for 4. I know that T-Mo will pay off contracts if you switch. How much will they pay and is it per line or per plan. Also can it be used for phone leases. Also if we use it to pay off leases do you know if Sprint offers to let you buy the phone at the end of a lease?

    • Petey07

      I used to have TMO before I switched to Verizon in 2009 (for the iPhones). When I switched back from verizon, I was still under contract for 4 lines. I had to submit my final bill from Verizon to TMO, waited a couple weeks and they reimburse the full ETF. Once I got those prepaid cards, I used to pay it off on Verizon. Since the scenario nowaday is a bit different, I don’t know how it would works with Leases, but best to go to a TMobile store and tell them your situation.

      Maybe buy the sprint phones so you can trade those phone in with Tmobile to get some credit for it? So that way you can cut ropes with Sprint.

        Alright thanks. I hope it does because then we could save even more money :).

  • stuman19741974 .

    I just can’t see dumping my grandfathered unlimited Simple Choice Plan. Why? Because of the rest of the family that is getting 4GB/line for just $10 each. Moving to TMO1 would cost me I think about $70+ more per month.

    6 Phone lines + 1 Tablet line (1 phone and the tablet were added for free around black friday)

    So currently “pay” for:
    1 phone line with old $20 unlimited plan
    4 phone lines with 4GB/line until Feb 2019
    Still getting 15% corporate discount as well.

    After taxes and fees, my total bill is about $145. As far as I read, TMO1 would be $220! (since I’d no longer have the 6th phone and the tablet for free)

    • B Michael

      I have the EXACT same plan as you… 4/$100 w/ 4GB, 1 add’l voice for $10, and then the two free lines (1 voice and 1 M.I.), all with a 15% gov’t discount. I read somewhere on here that someone was told, starting this Friday, if you have the two free lines, then you would be 4 lines for $120, and $20 each add’l line. That would bring it to $160 (I could cancel my 7th M.I. line, since the phones would now have 10 gb hotspot), and I KNOW 4 of my 6 voice lines would (for the time being) bring me a $40 kickback credit. That would bring my cost down to $120 for 6 lines. I’m talking to T-Force right now to verify. If this is true, and hits this Friday, I would probably leave SC after 17 years and jump on board T-Mobile ONE.

      • stuman19741974 .

        Cool :) Yeah, I guess we’ll find out for sure on Friday. I doubt I’ll be moving over since I still want all 7 devices. Even if 2 really are completely free, it will still cost me a bit more.

  • Walt

    2 for $100!

    Thank you t-mobile, thank you John Legere

    • Guest

      You should thank Verizon, they’re the ones that are offering Unlimited at full-speed with hotspot included. No need for great-if-you-know-about-it HD switch there. And they also have plans starting with 2GB.

      T-Mobile is just reacting.

  • Guest

    Sounds better, but I’ll wait for the fine print.

  • PiCASSiMO

    With current rates of:

    2 for $120
    3 for $140
    4 for $160

    Can we assume that with the new promotion it will be?

    2 for $100
    3 for $120
    4 for $140

    Any thoughts?

    • stasek

      That would get me off the Simple Choice plan I have right now. 4 lines for $100 + $10 for 5th line + $15 for what essentially is extra 2GB of data for yours truly (since all other lines get 4GB anyway). $125 + roughly $30 in taxes (gotta love IL). I’m paying ~$155 for 5 lines. Come on Johnny boy – show some love to the family plans! I might still do it since one of the lines uses hardly any data and my wife is 50/50 going over 2GB.

      • Dan

        Make it 4 for $100 and i’m in!

      • PiCASSiMO

        Yes, it’s the taxes that are killing me to here in Crook County, IL… net with taxes for the 4-lines has been about $140 ($40 in taxes alone).

        • Neoprimal

          The only things keeping me on Simple Choice right now are 1. Tablet lines for 8.50 (normally $20 but work discount + $10 line credit paired with Simple Choice plan make it what it is). TMo One Tablet plan is a whopping $20. I don’t know if I’m working my taxes out properly but from what I’m seeing, it only adds up to roughly $10, which makes sense since I’m paying for 2 lines + 1 tablet line. Another Simple Choice perk, which I think lots of people have forgotten about is a free Vudu movie monthly. I use this when I remember to!

          Anyway, I can either:

          Pay $100+~$10 Tax+$8.50 for 2GB tablet plan and get
          Unl 4G/Talk/Txt + 7GB Hotspot PER line, on 2 lines and 2GB LTE Tablet Internet + free vudu movie

          OR

          Pay $100 (on Autopay)+20 (on Autopay) for tablet and get
          Unl 4G/Talk/Txt + 10GB Hotspot (unclear on shared or per line).
          I don’t know the details of the TMo One Tablet plan. For that price, my guess would be unlimited LTE data which I really don’t need on my tablet. Also the $20 is promotional which means at some point it goes up to $70 – yoiks!

          Staying on the Simple Choice seems to be the clear winner for me unless I’m missing something. I don’t like Autopay so I’d be paying more. I’m hoping they tackle Tablet plan pricing next…give it a bit of flexibility for people like me who don’t need unlimited.

    • SalsaKing

      NO, the press release already said 4 lines will be $160.
      2 for $100 (promo)

      As of yet will not change.
      3 for $140
      4 for $160

      • PiCASSiMO

        That’s a shame. Although taxes are built in… many people will overlook that and compare T-Mobile $160 to Verizon $180 and say for a larger network is worth the extra $20/month.

        • Petey07

          Don’t forget, it’s an extra $20 and taxes & fees.

      • keepitreal25

        If your math is right , and also in the FAQ section yesterday it stated if you went with only 2-3 lines your aal fee would 25 and 20 with auto pay as the 2 line promo will be 100 dollars could change but so far looks good for customers , unbeatable deals and kickback can make it same price as normal 80 sc 2gb plan

  • ljg500

    As others have said.. Wait for the fine print. I don’t trust Legere.

    • keepitreal25

      There goes the crazy statements , what fine print !!!? autopay is a requirement for the prices. Existing tmo One customers get the same benefit . It’s pretty straightforward unlike Verizon’s where it’s an introductory rate can be changed at anytime , specific account requirements to get their auto-pay discount and no price lock guarantee in the fine print , like you get with Tmo

    • keepitreal25

      stop with the fine print trash man. I’m not trying to troll you, but you keep saying negative things when the above poster rate plan is no where unlimited he’s on a basic simple choice plan with 4gb which is a promo he’s only paying for the base data plan. Why would his bill not go up when he’s going from the cheapest plan outside his tablet line to switch to truly unlimited ???!!!!

  • B Michael

    Just an update, they did confirm to me, no 15% government discount, no “Two free lines” would be brought over from Simple Choice. Right now, I have 7 lines (6 voice w/4 GB, and 1 mobile internet hotspot with 6GB monthly, w/ rollover to 20 GB max) all in for +/- $120, and that includes taxes. I thought if the 2 free lines would carry over to ONE, and I could get 6 lines for $160 (and possibly lower with Kickback) and I would just cancel my mobile internet line, as the phones would now have hotspot, I would’ve probably went in this Friday to make the switch to ONE. Now, it looks like my 6 lines would be $200. That’s $80 more than what I’m paying now. Just not worth it. Oh well… I’ll just stay on my Simple Choice plan.

    • keepitreal25

      Yes please do if your current plan works stick with it , but I didn’t see where you mentioned the special tmo one pricing for the customers with the two lines on us or the fourth line free

      • B Michael

        That’s what I’m talking about. At first, I was told that my two Simple Choice “Two Lines on Us” lines WOULD carry over to T-Mobile ONE, but then I was contacted by a manager in T-Force, saying the info I was previously given was, indeed, incorrect. The Simple Choice flavor of the “Two Lines on Us” does NOT carry over to T-Mobile ONE. Only the “Two Lines on Us” for the ONE customers (the ones that were early adopters of T-Mobile ONE before the “Two lines” promo) will have their two lines carried over to the new ONE deal. Because of this, I’m going to have to stay on Simple Choice.. as, what I typed above, it’s just TOO expensive to switch over to ONE.

      • Obama

        If you like your plan you can keep your plan. If you like your service keep it

    • keepitreal25

      Your discount loss should be offset by the reg fees/taxes being included and your tablet plan would be same price except it’d be unlimited if you did autopay you’d save even more $$&

      • B. Michael

        I currently pay $93.50 before taxes for all 7 lines on my current Simple Choice plan. This price includes my 15% discount, and the “Two Lines On Us” promo. When taxes are added in, it comes to $120-ish.
        If I were to cancel my mobile internet line, and bring over my 6 voice lines to ONE, it would cost me $200 (on autopay), which is $80 more than what I would be paying, so it wouldn’t be the same. It just wouldn’t be worth it to do this. $20-30…MAYBE… but $80…nope.

  • Kevin Zefa

    help me make sure im looking at this right. I have the 2 lines for 100 then each line is 40. So I have 4 lines unlimited calls, tex and unlimited 4g LTE data (cust for 11 years but this plan is 2 years old) with 7gb of hotspot on each line my bill is $200 a month with taxes. If I switch I should be at $160 for pretty much the same plan. I wonder if I stream now at 1080p is the new HD video 720 or 1080? If I read it right I would be $160 all in if I do the autopay. unless I am overlooking something

    • SalsaKing

      In your case, switching would save you money. $180 + tax vs $160 (no tax), should be full HD, what ever the contents is sent at.

  • Karly Johnston

    The only caving I see here is Legere dropping that retarded video cap.

  • ljg500

    There dumb offer with enhancements to T one unlimited requires two lines. So if you have one line- forget it.

    • Sean

      Not really…they also made the single line plan have a better value.

  • PiCASSiMO

    Thank you Walt.

    Too bad they were not a little more aggressive on their 4-line option.
