Uncarrier makes its way to Puerto Rico

Almost a year after the Uncarrier wave started in the mainland US wireless market, it’s now hit the shores of Puerto Rico. Plans are very similar to those found in the mainland. For instance, there are three individual plans that’ll give the customer 500MB of high speed data, 2.5GB of high speed or unlimited for $40, $50 or $60 respectively. Each gives unlimited texting and calls. Essentially, the same as the Simple Choice plans for $10 per month cheaper.

Puerto Rico residents will also be able to take advantage of $0 down offers on a range of top smartphones including the likes of the iPhone 5s which comes in at $0 up front and 24 monthly payments of $27. Total value: $649. Galaxy Note 3, LG G Flex, Galaxy S4 and iPad Air are among the others that require no down payment.

As part of the Uncarrier movement hitting the island, T-Mobile’s marketing team came up with a trio of promotional videos. Check them out below.

    It’s about time. They had been neglected for so long. I recall going there a few years back and having terrible data, let alone signal.

    The shoes commercial was so funny! Ha ha!

    Ewww, why does Puerto Rico get $10 off the plans? I saw other companies do things like this for Spanish speakers and think its racist and discriminatory toward non Spanish speakers. And then I saw that it is ONLY for use within Puerto Rico, and calls TO the mainland USA are charged $0.15 per minute, roaming in the mainland USA is $0.79 per minute and this plan also lacks international text and data capabilities the mainland plan has. All in all its a great deal for one small island, but not great if you leave the island.

      While your facts are correct for the $40 plan… your racist and discriminatory comments toward “spanish speakers” make me wish you get Edge speeds for life… animal!

        If there was a way to thumbs down a comment more I would. So -1,000!

    I’m from Puerto Rico and I just change my plan to the 60$ plan, yes is a local plan but for only 5 bucks more you can add roaming and long distance calls all across the USA mainland. so in total is only 5$ cheaper than any simple choice plan with the same benefits.

    I always go once a year to pr to visit my family and am a current tmobile subscriber. If tmobile would improve coverage in the center of the island it would help so much in adding more subscribers especially with these prices.

    Why does Puerto Rico not allow “roaming” in the USA without an add-on? It’s all the same company and network. Even AT&T doesn’t do that IIRC.

  • Jason Anthony Pineiro

    Here in PR they have local plans and national plans that include Long Distance & Roaming
