Even More Plus Unlimited Plan Will Be $59.99, Quietly Launches April 13th

Even More Plus customers who caught wind of last nights Even More $79.99 “Unlimited” Everything plan were understandably upset that they wouldn’t be able to take advantage of this offer. Well of course we did a little more digging and as you can see by the image above, Even More Plus customers will in fact be able to take advantage of this plan at the wonderful price point of $59.99. That will include Unlimited Talk, Text and Data with the stipulation that data is really only unlimited in the sense that 2 GB’s of data is provided and beyond that data speeds are throttled till the next billing cycle. Fail T-Mobile.

It wasn’t too long ago that Even More Plus plans were removed from T-Mobile.com and advertisements in retail stores across the country and thankfully those customers haven’t been forgotten.

    DEAL BREAK for Even More and Even More plus! Now, just improve the marketing department and advertise BEASTLY!

    • Tyler

      I just switched back to Even More Plus 500 so this is definitely an option for me. I don’t care about the 2Gb data cap since I have a EDGE capable BB 8900 lol. My question is would my total cost be $59.99/mo or would it be more since I have a BB?

      • Anonymous

        It says right in the picture, $5 addon for BB BIS/BES or just BES, otherwise it’s just $59.99. Do you connect to corporate email?

    • David wrote that this will be quietly launched… Am I assuming this plan will only be available via phone and or in-store only? Hope not!

  • Interesting. The thing that scares me is I have 500 mins a month and never use it, but I tether often and use over 2GB on my true unlimited plan for about the same price with unlimited texts. Is it really worth a data cap to get unlimited minutes I may or may not use. One other thing. Will we be left out with AT&T merge since technically I don’t have a contract plan to be grandfathered in.

      5gb is nice but last month i used 4k minutes. Does EM+ include nights/weekends/mobile to mobile?

      • remister

        Yes, EM+ does nights/weekends/mobile2mobile!

    • Mbsoul

      Did you finish your contract? they should still honor the initial contracted price you signed up for. I’m still on a previous plan that I signed on before and they do not support for the past two years.

    Goodbye simple mobile, hello even more plus :D

  • remister

    I currently have Even More Plus with 500 min, unlimited text and data fro $59.99. I really don’t think that this is better option, as my data cap is at 5GB, not at 2GB. I am glad that I don’t have to use a lot of my minutes.

    • Anonymous

      I average 2GB every month. I’m grandfathered to $20 unlimited data plan. This is still a great deal even if it gets throttled once you hit over your cap instead of getting charged per MB.

      • remister

        I just got a text message that I past my 5GB mark. Only a few more days of throttled speeds. I hope they add a 10GB cap!

        • Saivngjessie

          They are supposed to. Right now it is only for webconnect but I’m sure its only a matter of time before you see a 10 GB cap

  • HTC_1


  • This is obviously part of the MASTER plan of assimilation into the AT&T type of data plans. They should tell the whole truth. After 2GB of data, you are throttled to dial up like speeds… Shame, SHAME!

    • Anonymous

      Unlimited data. Not Unlimited speeds…

      • Correct, and that is why you buy a 4G phone…to surf at dial up speeds? Oh, the crap that AT&T will bring, lol! Yup, and AT&T DOES NOT EVEN allow unlimited data unless you have a grandfathered plan and then their speeds, well, you really can’t call it speeds, their data connections SUCK…

        • Anonymous

          a) this deal might not even go thru. b) It’ll be a long while before it does go thru if it gets approved. c)If it does go thru, the one good thing, is that AT&T’s and T-Mobile decent service will become much, much better. d) You buy a 4G phone for the faster speeds, yes. And you have 5GB/2GB of 4G speeds a month. Honestly, I stream music and videos several hours a day, I’m on Facebook at least 15-20 times a day, I download apps every other day minimum, I have constant background data running, I have 3 e-mails continuously synced thruout the day, I’m signed on AIM, MSN, Skype and Gtalk, the entire day…and I still rarely pass 2GB…I’ve passed it once, when I hit 3. If you’re literally using more than 5GB, you’re either downloading full movies (which honestly, shouldn’t be done on a cell phone. As good as Mobile internet is, it’s still not a replacement for home internet), or tethering.

        • You should be real happy with the plans that AT&T will offer you post merger then, lol!

        • Ash

          I hope T-mo will do first 5GB @ 4G speed, when you hit this soft cap, then drop users to 3G speed. (Till end of billing cycle)
          Not this 2G”GPRS! not even EDGE” crap….
          Wouldn’t that be more….2011….

          Don’t be like 2001, T-mo…and don’t be like the other carriers.

  • Bah we need a fam option. Oh well ill stick with my even more plus unlim 139.99 plan for now.

  • Missperfect

    I just switched to the 1500 Whenever Minute promo on one of my lines and had to agree to a 2 year extension… I’m going to call to reverse it and switch to this plan….

    I get all my phones for free from work anyways so this plan would be perfect.

    • remister

      Can I work with your company please!?

    • Savingjessie

      It can only be reversed within the first 14 day “Buyers Remorse” period. Hope you aren’t past that.

      • Msladye

        Buyer’s Remorse is only for upgrades not rate plans

    • Anonymous

      You don’t need to call in to reverse it. Even if you took the 1500TTW promotion on April 12th, you can go on April 13th and take the new promotion for a 1 day contract extension lol.

  • Kris

    too*… “It wasn’t to long ago”. Fail Managing Editor!

    • nero

      The fired the editing manager because of the coming ATT merger and tools like you who do it pro bono! ::troll face::

      • nero

        they* self owned

        • Kris

          I apologize that “nero” believes my comment, was an attempt at being a troll. I simply pointed out a grammatical error to the editing manager. A pretty simple error as a matter of fact. I notice a lot of these mistakes, and it is not only limited to this site… but many “tech” sites. And “nero” you already owned yourself… so I don’t need to say anymore.

          But I do have a question, which might be simple… but I read yesterday the plan would be 79.99 for unlimited everything (minus the 2gb data throttling), and now 59.99. SO is the plan 59.99 unlimited everything (with data throttle) or is it 59.99 talk/text plus 20.00 data, totaling 79.99?

        • MtnDew

          79.99 is Even More (contract plan) / 59.99 is Even More Plus (without contract)

        • Kris

          Hmm… that sucks, because I do have a contract… but I paid full price for my G2. Only reason I have kept my original plan was because I had the myfaves… three years ago with my sidekick, but then switched to the iPhone (on edge) which I paid for on ebay and then this phone now.

          Not sure what to do, I just hope T-Mobile stays T-Mobile… been loyal for three years and would hope for many more years!!

      • I agree with what you are saying but I can’t fire myself!

  • omg! so worth it!


  • Chatter

    This really is a good deal for people (like me) that do not use lots of data. I basically operate off wifi and I assume some of us will jump on this deal – as long as we read this blog!

  • Oh wow… that is cheap! 60.00 bucks for unlimited everything. Sounds like the same deal SimpleMobile gives you, sans contract of course. :)


  • How much do they throttle post-2 gb?

    • Ash

      GPRS speed.
      You will not be happy.

      • Anonymous

        not even EDGE are you serious?

        • Ash

          Ask around here t-mo news, many others have stated the same.
          Sad but true.

  • Tyler

    I just switched back to Even More Plus 500 so this is definitely an option for me. I don’t care about the 2Gb data cap since I have a EDGE capable BB 8900 lol. My question is would my total cost be $59.99/mo or would it be more since I have a BB?

    • Add $5.00 if you are on a BIS plan (Blackberry). Take a look at the screen shot for that info under the TOTAL MRC column.

      • Tyler

        Ugh so because I have a Blackberry I’d have to pay $59.99 + $5? That makes sense?! ):

        • Yeah it sucks. I was a Crackberry user for the longest time and their plans always had an added-on price :/ when compared to other “Smartphones” This goes for most carriers. Poop if you ask me….

        • Tyler

          Thanks but I have the Even More Plus 500 plan right now and its only $59.99, there is no BIS fee of $5. Maybe its just for this plan? Once its launched, I will call T-Mobile to acquire about it and perhaps they’ll waive the $5 since I’ve been with them forever lol.

        • MtnDew

          All plans have a BIS fee of $5 if you use BIS…

        • MtnDew

          Wow you got me typing it wrong too… the fee is the bEs fee, only for people who need best access. (Not you)

        • MtnDew

          Stupid auto correct… bEs access… took me three times to get it right… BIS is consumer internet and is included in the internet price on all plans, ie you never pay extra for having a blackberry unless: you need BES, which you don’t need unless your job forces it upon you.

        • Tyler

          Then why does it say BIS in the picture?

        • MtnDew

          It says BIS/BES meaning BIS AND BES & BES only meaning ONLY BES…

        • Anonymous

          my head is spinning.

        • Tyler

          I just use the regular BB plan not the BES!!!

        • MtnDew

          Then no extra $5 for you! :-)

  • Just checked how much data I’ve been consuming on an average and the grand total this cycle is…… (drum roll) 474.6598 MB LMAO :) Not even 0.5gig of data.

    I use WiFi a lot more than the network 3G data and this 2gig cap works for me. Yes it might not be the right fit for some users, but it might be the right fit for others.

  • Jay1985

    I use the he’ll outta my BB and never come close to 1gb, let alone 2. What I want to know is what about those of us on the loyalty plan? I feel what was a great deal is now really expensive compared to the new promos!

    • Msladye

      So maybe u should change ur plan?!?!?

  • This is a good deal considering Simple Mobile charges $50 for their service, but with T-Mo, you get the piece of mind of truly unlimited data, out of market roaming, and no 1 gig soft cap, and other small features like 3-way and call waiting. And last but not least, T-Mobile’s incredible customer service. The extra $10 bucks are well worth it.

    • SimpleMobile is unlimited text, data and talk for 60.00 including taxes and fees. I think their 50.00 plan is just unlimited talk and text.

      • oops, my bad… you’re right. so basically T-Mo is competing with its MVNO with this promo.

        • Simple Mobile IS T-Mobile guys..fyi ..They buy bulk amounts of minutes and redistribute the service discounted..Like Family Mobile/Walmart Mobile…Or better example..Helio used Sprints towers and service.

  • Needs a EM+ $110 family plan option with shared 4+ GB cap to be appealing to me.

    I used 1.5 GB this month. I’ve used 3+ in the past. Girlfriend averages about 600 mb.

    Currently paying $95 ($110 after taxes and fees) for 1500 min shared, no text (google voice ftw), a $10 legacy data plan for me, and a full price $25 data plan for her).

    I’ve hit my minute cap for the month now with three days left on my billing cycle thanks to overly long work calls (used to get by with 300 minutes just fine). I need a larger option but can’t afford to pay the increase to go to the unlimited plan since I’d also lose my legacy data plan.

  • HeLLkAt31

    I have the EMP Plan and I just got a txt from Tmobile that my data will slow down bcuz I passed my 5gigs of data till my next billing cycle. My next billing cycle starts tomorrow and I wouldn’t last with 2 gigs, HeLL No!

  • Cubanito151

    Does anyone think T-Mobile lets me switch one of the lines in a family plan to this and take the other line off? I think I’m going to ask because its a good deal I don’t use near 1gig of data LOL.

  • Alvin B.

    Only question *I* have is, I’m on contracted EM+ for 2 years (yeah I too thought all EM+ was no contract but… got cut a deal on the phone).. contract started 6 months ago. Would I be eligible to switch to the new plan?

    • Grover

      So you’re on Even More, not Even More PLUS. You have a contract… the plans in this posting are no contract. You’ll get the same plan for $79.99.

      • Scwrath88

        Yes its likely you can still switch. it is def not standard procedure to put someone on em* with contract but very possible to do so pertaining to the circumstances.

        • Alvin B.

          Positive I’m on EM+ contract with flexpay. I used to work for T-Mobile, I was shocked when they offerred that plan to me. I thought I’d have to pay full price for the phone due to EM+ and flexpay, but they put me on a contract and knocked off $200 and I pay the rest out. I have the $59.99 EM+ with 500 mins, unl text & data currently.

          I rarely use more than 500mb/month, mostly because 3G is pretty slow in my area, so I seek out wifi at all times.

    • Dalton

      You mean you’re Even More? Because EM+ is contract-free. So… no you won’t be able to switch because this is for monthly plan customers, not contract customers.

      • Alvin B.

        No, I mean EM+. Yes, I know it is not normal to have a contract on EM+. I worked at TMO when EM+ was rolled out and we were told absolutely no contracts, you even had to break a contract to go to EM+. Nevertheless, when I signed up for my current account this past fall, I was offered a discounted phone, with the EM+ payment plan, on flexpay, with a 2 year contract. Dunno how or why, but I wasn’t going to turn down the discount on an EM+ plan when I thought I was going to have to pay out the full price.

        Of course, this odd setup of my account may in the END prevent me from changing plans on its own if customer service doesn’t understand/approve of what the sales reps did to get me into a phone!

  • Dbell9

    Is there a pricing discount for even more plus family plans ($139.99)? Or should I just get two $59.99 plans and save $19

  • Yes!! I will switch to that unlimited data plan from my $79.99 unlimited even more plus on April 13! Ya Save money! I think that on every unlimited plan they throttle after 2GB (which I don’t even use).

  • Everyone is balking at the 2GB “cap” (which just slows things down). I just reviewed my Blackberry traffic for the past 5 months. The highest month going back to halloween of last year was only 76MB. Which means at current rates, it would take me over 2 years to hit 2GB. I think I can pretty safely stay under that “cap” in a month, or worst case, it would slow me down to the same damn slow speeds this old Blackberry curve already runs at anyway.

    So I’m looking forward to a new phone in a week and all the raging fast bandwidth that comes with it. :)

    • zps

      don’t judge your usage based on a curve. you will use significantly more on an android device.

    • BlackBerry Internet Service compresses data very aggressively. That’s a poor measuring stick if you plan on moving to another mobile OS.

  • MattMJB0188

    This new EM+ plan might not be good for those on 4G devices. Those on Blackberries will greatly benefit from this plan. I will be switching next week once its available. I only used about 100MB last month on my Blackberry.

  • TMoFan

    T-Mobile always tries to do innovative things with their plans.

    I come nowhere close to 2GB so it’s a good deal for those of us who aren’t heavy data users.

  • Alec

    Quietly launched April 13th. Excuse me? its only the 5th of April. Do you mean will be launched ?

    • DatNizzle

      Nope. It’s fine the way it is.

  • Damn…Wi-Fi tethering my Xoom trying to show my ass off in public has me at 1,070.6MB a.k.a. 1.0455078124GB of data and my plan doesnt flip until the 23rd…I dont think that’ll work for me…im on EM+ and i think i”ll stick with the 5GB cap..lol its like Linus’s blanket on Peanuts..I just need the warmth..HA

  • Anonymous

    Im assuming if we have the current EM+ 500 min unltd text unltd data(5gb throttle point) for $59.99 that we can keep it, and not be forced to the NEW $59.99 option. Does that sound correct/promising?

  • So data speeds will be reduced to what speed ?

    • Ddukatz

      My guess would be 2G (hopefully not)

      It says “$0 2G Unlimited Data” after “Date Feature:” in the screen shot

    • HeLLkAt31

      I passed my 5 gigs before my billing cycle on my Even More Plus Plan that has unlimited every thing for 79 a month and let me tell u that u will get reduced to edge speeds but it will feel like a slow crawling dialup connection…

      • Jutecat

        dannnnnggg what are you doing to get over 5 gigs? i have yet to hit that and thats even with tethering to my laptop!

        • Not sure about him, but I got pass 5GB once. I was away and check my security feeds of my house. I’d say this is a legit use as opposite to torrenting on 3G and stuff.

        • HeLLkAt31

          f@kn porn streaming kills ur data… =| jk :) I watch all these reviews on phones on youtube n tv, thats wats killing me but I guess I’m ahead of my time when phones are trully replacing laptops and tablets… =/

      You get reduced to 0.05Mbps….trust me it sucks. Things like email/twitter still work, but you can forget about watching any video or surfing the web at reasonable speeds.

  • Anonymous

    The data speed reduction is complete buzzkill. People don’t buy a sportscar if the dealership tells them they are only allowed to drive over 55MPH for the first week of every month.


    • woother

      But this is not a sports car, it’s a phone. Big difference.

    So if I have the Even More Plus plan from August of last year, do I still get true unlimited? Or does my plan automatically change to 2GB? Cause I know I’m paying more that 59 for it.

    • Anonymous

      As with all plans, nothing will change unless you change it. So you will still have “unlimited” not 2G.

  • Question…

    Even More Plus Unlimited Plan, is this a non contract plan? The Even Plus, to my knowledge is contractual while the Even More Plus plans are non contract.

    • Anonymous

      Yes, EMP are no contract. I love it…

    • Anonymous

      Yes, correct (mostly).
      Even More = contract, post paid
      Even More Plus = No contract, post paid

      • :( I’m still under contract with MyFaves 300, Android web and 300 txt… Would T-Mobile let me upgrade to a non contract plan? If yes, than I see ETF fees in my future…lol :/

        There goes getting a LG 2X…..

        • Jutecat

          yes because you have a grandfathered plan. the only thing that happens in an upgrade is signing another of the same contract (if you so choose) for another two years.

        • Jutecat

          ah i misread what you wrote! but eitherway ya they would, but i wouldn’t if i were you. you would lose your sweet two year discount

        • You bring up a good point. I need to crunch the #’s to see how much I would really be saving if I were to switch over.

          As it stands, I have a -15% off corp discount that is applied to my bill (pre-taxes) monthly.

    • Anonymous

      Unless I’m missing something… I have an Even More PLUS brochure in front of me and the Current Unlimited everything is here for the 79.99. I have always known the PLUS in Even more Plus to denote the No-Contract, post-paid option. The Even More Plans are the standard contract options. I have never heard of “Even Plus.” That’s all I know.

      • “Even Plus.”

        That was a typo on my part..

  • DatNizzle

    For people complaining about “unlimited”: According to you guys’ definition, no one has unlimited data. Even HSPA+ customers’ speed has limits, right now it’s 42mbs.
    For you to say unlimited data refers to the speed of that data, makes no since. There is no way for you to get “unlimited” speed.

I got the unlimted even more plus for $79.99. will I be able to switch to this $59.99 plan? I dont use a ton of data but use ton of minutes I used 1800 when ever minutes 140mb of data. I always wifi when I am at home does that show as data? Thanks

    • Anonymous

      If your in the grace period which is what, 20 days or something(I don’t know) then you can still change your plan once this drops.

      • TMOrep1

        Wrong, you can still change your plan even after the buyer’s remorse period. As long as you are already on Even More Plus and change to another EMP plan there is no fee to change plans.

    • anony

      it would be a great switch for you if you dont ever use that much data..that way you can call anywhere at anytime and get rid of your house phone if you have one.. also it will save you 20.00 dollars a month

  • Mac

    whatttt, thats the same price as my Even More Plus 500 plan.. but does mine have a 2GB cap before its throttled? if not i’m deff switching

    • Mac

      if it does*

  • Sweet – i’ll have to check out the new rates. Is anything changing for family plans?

  • Jsun Bailey

    Okay, so here’s my scenario, input is appreciated: I’m currently on the $59.99 500EMP plan, in the area I’m in I only get Edge signal, so if I switched over to this new plan would my speed be lower than edge? (and trust me using 2GB or 5GB on an edge network is not likely in my opinion)

    • yasuya

      no it wouldnt reduce your speed since youre already only at edge speeds. if you were in a 3g area, and used more than 2 gb of data, they would reduce the speed at which you can access data since as you said in your scenario, that isnt going to happen, if i were you, i’d make the switch.

  • Guest

    Do we get 5GB of data before being throttled now with our EM+ unlimited plan? I’m trying to see if this is worth the switch.

  • Anonymous

    I’ll keep my plan I don’t talk that much and I get 5th of data before they throttle me.

  • Nate24

    THAT IS A STEAL!. The unlimited minutes makes it totally worth it IMHO, i’m now paying $59 for 500m and only use <200 MB per month. 2GB is more than I need per month. I use wifi at home and work and have broadband (50 Mbps) at home so I will definitely switch!!

    • Maschwar77

      Yeah, it is a steal! I really only use my android phone for email and the occasional navigation stuff. So they throttle the speed somewhat after 2GB, who cares? Still great and the 59.99 price point makes it highly competitive with prepaid offerings from Virgin Mobile.

  • Common wtf? That 2gb cap is proof that att already has there hand in the pot.I stream mlbtv on my nexus s most evenings because I am of home. I listen to lots of tune in radio,pandora, etc.. how the hell is 2gb going to ever be enough for someone who is using there phone what it really is intended for these days. Yes the unlimited minutes is nice, but I have no problems telling people I will call you after 9 or text me.

    • Paul N Mavini

      Um, YOU are the reason that unlimited data is going away! Seriously… using the cell network to watch baseball games? I think it only takes like a dozen video watchers to tie up a whole tower.

      I use the web, email, and other data apps a lot, and rarely exceed 200mb.

      • yasuya

        what modern mobile phones really need is a digital tv-tuning card. that way we can still access broadcast video without using extra bandwidth. a lot of my data usage is hulu via tether (or the hacked version of flash player) If i could watch stuff live on my phone or better yet record it to the sd card and watch it later (yes basically i want my phone to be tivo) it would reduce data usage and add a level of awesome to the phone.

    • Tonster

      hey its better than getting charged for overage? ie AT&T. Use your old plan if you want truely unlimited.

  • Ms.Carmen Diva

    Ooh…Tmo is making it difficult for me to leave them now especially when i decided i want the xperia play :(
    Eh, i think of the customer service issues and i still want my play lol

  • MattMJB0188

    I already said I think this plan is perfect for Blackberry users but I feel everyones pain with the 2GB. They might as well not even market it as ‘unlimited’. I think this is the biggest smack in the face to the consumer. What does this 2GB even serve?

  • James

    Here is a simple solution for those people that 2GB of data isn’t enough, don’t get the plan. Stop complaining about the plans, you act like data doesn’t cost T-Mobile anything. 2GB is plenty of data for most people and $80 is insanely low for unlimited everything. The plans that T-Mobile already offers with 5GB limit are still way cheaper than other competitors. So in the end get it or don’t but either way stop crying about it,T-Mobile still offers the best plans around.

  • Iowa1

    Wow!, very cheap. That is almost HALF what you would pay with Verizon/AT&T

  • On this plan how much will it cost to add a line? With unlimited minutes, I can drop my tmobile land line as well and save more money. The only thing I am worried about is that I have tzones currently and I don’t want to drop it.

    I’m still on a Myfaves plan with my kid and trying to decide if I want to make the switch to another plan. Any suggestions??

    • Jrgcld9305

      Myfave is pretty good but think about unlimited talk to anyone instead of five people

  • tmobile hater

    why do they even bother calling it unlimited when its not unlimited? its like their lying.

    • Pcj14

      it is unlimited, its just the first 2 gigs are at full throttle. after that, the speed is slowed down with no additional charge (IMO a T-mobile fail). With AT&T, the first 2 gigs are free, after that they charge you.

      • Valid

        Ummm… by definition that’s NOT unlimited. If they’re manually slowing down your data speeds, they’re LIMITING the amount you can receive. If it was unlimited, there would not be any data caps or speed reductions – you could go full blast 24/7.

        • Anonymous

          Your argument is incredibly flawed. Based on what you’re saying, no network has truly “unlimited” data since there is a max throughput and even at max throughput continuously during a billing cycle, there is an actual maximum of data that can be transmitted. Thus in actuality, every carrier limits the amount you can receive.

          While it is true that throttling does put some restrictions on your usage, they are still a company trying to balance giving what customers want with turning a profit that their shareholders require. 2GB of unthrottled usage is a lot for the vast majority of users…not the power users that may be all over this site and often respond to such posted articles. With the prolific availability of WiFi, it would make sense that 2GB is plenty for most people.

        • UNLIMITED DATA in the world of cellphones is Measure by Bits and Bytes, you can’t compare unlimited to speeds because no speed is truly unlimited. Unlimited by their definition is how much data you can retrieve and how much data you can upload, after 2 gigs the speeds will just fall, you can still retrieve and upload any amount of data, it would just be 3G speeds.

          Get with it

    I would be remiss if I didn’t note that Virgin Mobile has an Unlimited talk, text, and data(truly unlimited, no throttling) plan for $60..so this plan isn’t all that revolutionary, its more reactionary. AND it already includes taxes and fees…so while T-Mobile’s is $59.99 you have to add taxes to it… Virgin Mobile includes taxes and fees in the $60 amount…
    Straight from the Virgin Mobile USA website: All of the Beyond Talk Plans are inclusive of taxes and surcharges.

    Then there is Boost Mobile.. which has an unlimited plan for $50, in addition to data, talk, and text, it also includes free 411 calls..and taxes are included… PLUS for ever six on time payments, your rate is reduced by $5, all the way down to $35.

    So, while this $59.99 on T-Mobile seems nice, when you look around at the competition you see its not really.

    • Maschwar77

      Well, if you like pathetic coverage and no customer service, Boost and Virgin are the way to go. You don’t pay that much more for T-Mobile and you get a superior network. The only way Boost and Virgin would be better is if they both were allowed to access Sprint’s native and roaming network.

      • Anonymous

        Its a funny thing that Virgin Mobile and Boost CDMA coverage. In some regions, the coverage is just as good as Sprint (like in Pittsburgh), but like you said, you don’t have the same roaming options. It still is really great coverage though, and even superior to tmobys in many ways because of the widespread 3G. I am very impressed with T-Mobiles continued expansion though, I am starting to see HSPA pop up in the suburbs more and more around Pburgh, and as we all know, magenta has THE HSPA network to rule all others.

        • Virgin Mobile is running on Sprint’s network. They still have unlimited, but throttle at 5gb. (I have a Virgin USB modem)

        • Anonymous

          It was just pointed out that USB Modems and MiFi units are capped at 5GB and not phones, just like what Sprint does with 3G mobile broadband now.

    • Virgin Mobile is not truly unlimited anymore :(

      • Anonymous

        That’s where you are wrong…
        The Mobile Broadband plan(mifi) is what has a data cap now…but the phones are unlimited… the only thing they say is, “unlimited does not mean unreasonable”

        • Anonymous

          Virgin users are constantly complaining about no data, slow data and sms problems though and while I’m sure everyone isn’t it does seem to be an issue for many.

    • Ajith Antony

      Also, Virgin and Boost only work with their branded devices. There are only two Android phones for Virgin, and they are both low cost models, Intercept and Optimus.

  • Notnow

    http://www.mysimplemobile.com/ Runs off Tmobile network. same price $60 unlim everything

    • Maschwar77

      It is not the same thing. The coverage is not as comprehensive and does not roam. I will keep T-Mobile, thank you very much.

      • Quailallstar

        BS! I have one phone on SimpleMobile and one on T-Mobile; same exact thing buddy. Only difference is the time you are on hold with SimpleMobile vs. T-Mobile for customer service.

    • P-rez

      And with simple mobile tax is included. With Tmo you’ll have to pay taxes and FCC fees.

  • Minioninnc

    I’m down with this! :) Get it, got it, good! Coming soon anyway :)

  • ThreeFourSeven

    This is just like at&t but they call it unlimited cause they throttled you afterwards. SMH!!

  • Derrick227

    this is great news, i already have the EMP plan of 59.99 with the 500 mins……so going unlimited will do me good

  • TheGrandWizard

    i hate people complaining about the 2gig throttle speed! F*&K i work at tmobile and when i see customers usage id say 9 out of 10 people don’t use over 2 gigs, even on androids……unlimited everything on a EMP plan is 80 dollars they are giving you a 20 dollar discount! are you kidding me thats an amazing deal…..but i have seen a drop in customers upgrading and signing up with new service because of the whole AT&T thing so hopefully these plans help pull in customers

    • Maschwar77

      It kind of just goes to show how Americans are used to having customer service think for them. It is unlimited, they only throttle the speeds after 2GB of usage. Even at throttled speeds, it is still very useable. In one month, on my Android phone, I have only used almost 150MB. I agree, the deal is amazing especially considering this a post paid plan with post paid benefits. Sure you may save a small amount of money using Virgin’s smart phone service/coverage area still doesn’t compete with a true postpaid plan that roams without additional fee.

    • Goober007

      I would say you are kind of TheGrandAss. It’s just a job. Quit bulldogging for your master for free.

  • this is a tempting plan to keep me from jumping the magenta ship before it crashes into the at&t iceberg..

  • Anonymous

    Thats great. I have EMP for $59.99 and am currently limited to 500 talk. I have checked my data usage and I dont go anywhere near 2gig(yes a loser in the techgeek world..no gaming, etc.). But I go on the internet, check stock quotes, check email, check weather, news, look at youtube. However, I go on on wifi a lot because my iphone doesnt get 3G service. So that could change with a new t-mo phone. Problem, new phone will cost $400-$500 off plan. Only way to keep $59.99… Or buy mytouch4g for $300 on ebay, craiglist, trusting seller..

    • AT&T-Mobile Man

      Full retail price for the 3G T-Mobile LG Optimus T is only $239.99. If credit worthy, can buy the device for $12 down and $12/mo (19 additional months interest-free) added to monthly phone bill. Will have to pay state sales tax on the entire $239.99 along with the $12 down payment (Even More Plus plans only) at time of purchase.

      • That would only be the price with a contact plan correct?

      • Blogo1111

        why would I want a AA minor league phone compared to the mt4g, samsung 4g, g2x, etc.

  • Yodany

    I am with t- mobile for past 4 years and currently out of contract. What would be the best family plan (2 lines) for me considering we never go beyond 500 anytime minutes + 100 texts + 2GB data between 2 of us?

  • I use my data allowance without remorse. I commute and I don’t apologize for streaming music or video during that commute.

    I would often scrape the bottom of the 10 GB limit, now with the 5 GB limit I hit it every month. Interestingly enough, I would be willing to pay more for more data. In fact, I am willing to pay a fair price per megabyte, that is, pay for what I use.

    In fact, this would be an incentive not to use as much data as you can for most users. Sometimes when I get home, I don’t even switch to wi-fi. Look, there’s a data allownace and I’m going to use it. But if I paid per megabyte, I’d switch to wi-fi every time. In fact, I would switch to my school’s wi-fi! Today, I continue to use 3G even when I’m at school.

    But I love the hypocrisy of these companies. They cry and cry about data usage and impose caps, yet they refuse to charge per megabyte as they should. And when you come in way under the cap, you don’t get a credit. There’s no incentive to conserve.

    • Cray820

      Ok Ideally most people, unlike you, would prefer to pay a flat rate rather than per megabyte. On the other hand T-mobile’s data caps makes paying per-megabyte more sense. When ATT switch to a tiered data plan I thought T-mobile was going to take advantage and come up with a plan that puts ATT to shame but instead they came up with a data cap that makes ATT tiered data system look like a better idea.

    How do you even sign up for this? Will it show up on my online account or would I have to go to a store?
    Also, is this for 2 lines?Thanks.

  • tmo just always has some kind of trick under their sleeves. well it’s all of them but since i’m on tmo i’ll accuse them more.

    • Alvin B.

      The trick, at least for EM+ customers, is that the line “Even More Plus customers will in fact be able to take advantage of this plan at the wonderful price point of $59.99. ” according to TMOnews above is not actually the case. I tried to change my account and I would actually be paying $15 more. That would be okay if I really NEEDED the extra time, but it certainly isn’t $59.99.

  • Firemantmob69

    theres also a 79.99 unlimited data talk text plan coming out the 13th as well . the only thing is that 2G capps that sucks! i use almost 9 gb but i also have a grandfatheres plan im cool. it suck that speeds have to be throttled though its definately a kicker

    • zach

       learn how to string a sentence together, good god reading your post was painfull.

  • Ebagsayz

    So…I’m a tmobile customer, on a old old plan out of contract and I can get this or do I have to be on a “even more” plan to be able to switch? The article is little misleading to me.

    This plans sounds great I just lost my 5$ unlimited suncom “tzone” data internet from switching my originally suncom card to tmobile sim(Tmo bought them, lost my old sim). They know I use a G2 android device with the new sim and won’t give me access to internet now…

    • Just hung up with the TMO Retentions Dept. and the rep. told me I could switch over to this plan with no contract from my current Loyalty Unlimited Talk and $5/mo “dumb phone” unlimited data plan, no problem.

      The TMO rep. also told me that all current TMO plans will be grandfathered into AT&T, “no questions, no problem”. So, I’m thinking of switching as a hedge against the higher AT&T plans, especially if we can FINALLY have official support for the iPhone, this plan will be a bargain compared to mothership AT&T’s plans.

      FWIW, when asked, the Retentions Dept. rep. told me it’s a “done deal” the acquisition happens.

      • I would take what the retentions rep. says with a grain of salt… Does the rep have a friend in congress or the FCC? Will the rep. send you a letter that states you will be granfathered in when AT&T takes over?

        • I hear ya…just repeating what was mentioned to me.

  • Anonymous

    Wait, so right now they throttle at 5GB, and now with this plan they will throttle at 2GB? Is that right?

  • Msjones0228

    I just spoke to the rude people at T-mobile and they will not have any specials or deals like this for family plans. These people are so very rude every time I call in. I have never called a company and their CS reps try to tell me what I want and need and those non ENGLISH speaking crows at t-mobile are forever doing that. I CAN”T STAND THEM

  • I have the 59.99 even more plus plan. I had to yell and argue and get a supervisor and give them the promotion code listed on the promotion screen cap but I finally got it.

  • sounds like at&t is behind this

  • pdmt99

    I was just told by Customer Service that this offer was cancelled. I tried but they said they were unable to forward me a copy of the communique they were reading off of, or point me to an on-line posting. I did not bother to kick-it up to a supervisor to argue.

  • I just checked my plan and then clicked on the “pending changes” and it is there for 59.99 It took me arguing they day it started and reading the promo code but I got it. I called in as soon as it hit and thank god I did, I was going to metro for their unlimited 60 plan and I am so happy I get that price w/ tmo CS…even att CS will be better then metro or straight talks CS.

  • T-Mobile changed my pending plan of 59.99 that I singed up for on April 13 to 79.99 and then deleted the change all together and kept me on my old plan and fully removed my blackberry data!!. After yelling at 5 people, 2 supervisors in billing and customer retention they all lied and said they didnt know what I was talking about. 1 super said they dont have bundles and that i signed up for the 59 unlimited talk and then had 10 unlimited text and 10 unlimited data and that is how it is unlimited everything at 59.99. When I called back and asked where to email my screen shot and their legal department they said “oh yea we know what plan you are talking about, we did have it but pulled it before the launch, some systems did not remove it and that is why it was added but it is not a promotion we can give you, sorry. If you want unlimited everything it is 79.99 CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EMAIL ME AND LET ME KNOW IF THEY SUCCESFULLY HAVE THE EVEN MORE PLUS 59.99 PLAN ACTIVE ON THEIR ACCOUNT? IF SO I AM GOING TO FILE A BAIT AND SWITCH LAWSUIT AND PUSH FOR A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT: apathetic30@yahoo.com

    • AC

      Same thing happened to my wife today. CSR was completely contentious and rude to my wife and accused her of making it up. Even accused the 3 previous reps and techs she spoke to over the weekend (regarding the inaccessible data) that they were “mistaken” and didn’t know what they were doing.

      I had to call Tmobile back and argue for half an hour that the plan existed and we weren’t making it up. She wasn’t as contentious but was somewhat patronizing and said “I can’t create a plan out of nowhere for you.” Showed the CSR my wife’s account notes that clearly said she was added then taken off before she became more polite and added the plan back.

      Will definitely be keeping an eye on her account activities to see if Tmobile tries to pull anything else. Advise all who got on this plan to do the same.

  • LJenkinsR

    This summer I renewed my plan for the 59.99 unlimited talk, text and data.  I purchased a new phone and I got the billed to me.  I have just been paying my bill without even noticing that I have been paying 49.99 for unlimited talk, text & 20 for data.  Has anyone had this same issue?  I have been on  a phone with a rep and she has advised me that they never had such a plan.  I would have never renewed my service
