T-Mobile Retiring Classic Plans In National Retail Channels Beginning November 1st

In a move that I firmly believe has been a long time coming, T-Mobile sent out an alert this morning informing employees that they were stopping Classic Plans at national retailers. Unfortunately, the image doesn’t say what is forthcoming for the company’s national retail partners, but I imagine this may have something to do with the third phase of T-Mobile’s … [read full article]

T-Mobile Customers Upset About New Unlocking Policy Start Petition To “Enact Common Sense Unlock Policy”

T-Mobile’s new SIM unlock policy is only a few weeks old and has already earned the ire of a small but now vocal minority of Classic Plan customers who want T-Mobile to “enact a common-sense SIM unlock policy.” At issue is the idea that T-Mobile’s unlock process went from very relaxed and one of the most agreeable in the wireless industry to one that is now “arbitrary and punitive” according to the … [read full article]

Quantities are limited and not all Walmart locations will have them in stock, but if you can find it, buy it. Don’t ask questions, don’t stop and consider it, just … [read full article]

Best Buy Finally Puts The HTC One Up For Sale, $299 With Two-Year Contract

Classic Plan customers take note as the HTC One makes its return to the Best Buy website in 32GB flavor for $299 with contract. The One had originally surfaced on the Best Buy website earlier this month as a $249 pre-order, but was quickly taken down. The pricing is only good for Classic Plan customers and requires a two-year agreement, something Best Buy hopes to rectify as … [read full article]

Best Buy Internal Doc Says Simple Choice Plans Coming At End Of “Fiscal Year”, Classic Plans Still Available

Perhaps one of the most confusing and poorly explained aspects of T-Mobile’s new Simple Choice offering is how it works with third-party retailers and authorized dealers. I’ve tried to do all that I can on my end with TmoNews to help explain that what company-owned channels offer is different from other T-Mobile sales channels. That’s why I found this Best Buy screengrab so useful as it helps explain exactly what you can and … [read full article]

Pre-Order The HTC One Direct From HTC, Ships April 18th

Here’s a bit of a kicker for those of us still eagerly awaiting T-Mobile’s announcement of an official HTC One release date. The manufacturers own “shop” page has placed the T-Mobile variant up for pre-order with shipping taking place on April 18th. With the 18th as a shipping date, my best guess is that we’re then looking at the 19th as an official release date, which does line up with other rumors … [read full article]

(Updated) T-Mobile’s New Rate Plans Are Live, Right On Schedule

Update: In the hopes of clarifying a whole lot of confusion, existing customers on grandfathered or Classic plans seem to be confused about whether or not they can use customer care and/or third-party channels to upgrade. I have been unable to confirm if you can contact customer service to upgrade — regardless, there seems to be success with third party national retailers and authorized dealers.  Just as we first promised, T-Mobile’s new … [read full article]

Costco Training Doc Compares Classic Plan Versus Value Plan Pricing For T-Mobile

T-Mobile’s new Value Plans launch next week and third-party retailers are ramping up with new training docs and guides to help employees with the transition. Given that T-Mobile’s company owned retail stores are moving to Value Plan only environments, national retailers are showing off the cost comparison with the new Classic plans. There are a few discrepancies listed here however, specifically since we learned yesterday the price of the Galaxy S III[read full article]

T-Mobile New Classic And Prepaid Plans, Classic Available At All National Resellers

While T-Mobile’s corporate owned retail stores will go live with a Value Plan only environment on March 24th, National Retailers are launching a total revamp of the company’s Classic Plans. Why two sets of rate plans you ask? The simple answer is that T-Mobile’s national retailers like Target, Walmart and Best Buy can’t support the Value Plan structure of commissions paid out by the carrier. In the cases of corporate stores where T-Mobile … [read full article]
