T-Mobile’s latest Un-carrier move offers free Netflix

tmobilenetflixonus

T-Mobile’s latest Un-carrier move has been revealed.

Starting September 12th, T-Mobile One customers can get a free Netflix subscription. To qualify for a free Netflix subscription, you’ll need two or more voice lines on a T-Mobile One plan. T-Mo says that customers with free lines from the recent “line-on-us” deals also qualify.

T-Mobile customers on the Unlimited 55+ or 2-lines-for-$100 plans will need to switch to the latest T-Mobile One plan to qualify for Netflix On Us.

The Netflix plan that you’ll get with your qualifying T-Mobile One plan is the standard $9.99 plan, which includes two streams at once. If you’d like to upgrade to the $11.99 premium Netflix plan that includes Ultra HD and HDR, you can do so and T-Mobile will add the $2 difference to your bill every month.

Speaking of HDR, T-Mobile has confirmed that Netflix HDR is available to T-Mo customers with a Netflix HDR-capable phone like the Galaxy Note 8, including customers on plans that have 480p video streaming.

One other detail worth noting that if you’ve already signed up for Netflix, T-Mobile will cover the cost of your subscription, too.

If you’re on a qualifying T-Mobile One plan with two or more voice lines, you can enroll in Netflix On Us on September 12th. You’ll be able to enroll on T-Mobile’s website, in a T-Mobile store, or by calling T-Mo customer support.

So now that the latest Un-carrier move has been revealed, what do you think of it? If you’re not already on a qualifying T-Mobile One plan, will you be switching to take advantage of the Netflix On Us offer?

    Nothing for SimpleChoice Family Plan…BOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    • Acdc1a

      What are the details of your plan? One with taxes and fees with the 10GB promo a while ago made it impossible for me to hang onto any legacy plan.

      • stuman19741974 .

        SimpleChoice Family Plan. Still getting my corporate 15% discount as well. Added 3 free lines in Nov/Mar as well. The 200mb tablets are there and can drop if needed…just nice to have in a pinch for the kids.

        Total bill with taxes is just under $150.

        Line 1: Unlimited
        Line 2: 4gb (til 2/2019)
        Line 3: 4gb (til 2/2019)
        Line 4: 4gb (til 2/2019)
        Line 5: 4gb (til 2/2019)
        Line 6: 4gb (til 2/2019) – Free
        Tablet Line 1: 6gb – Free
        Tablet Line 2: 6gb – Free
        Tablet Line 3: 200mb – Free
        Tablet Line 4: 200mb – Free
        Free Digits Duplicate of Line 1 as well (since I was a beta tester)

        • Acdc1a

          You can certainly afford your own Netflix with a plan like that. I wouldn’t change either.

        • stuman19741974 .

          Oh yeah, definitely not going to mess up my plan just for Netflix. :) Just too bad excluded. Oh well, I’ll live :)

        • Fernando N.

          I’m in the same boat as you guys, SC with 10 lines and a Free DIGITS, free international calling and the North America Bundle, bill is around $200 after taxes , same lines and services in TMONext would be at least extra $100

        • Stephen

          I’m in a similar situation in which my plan is to good to change.

          Lines 1-4 – $120: Simple Choice 10gb Each (unlimited until 2/2019)
          Line 5-7 – Free: Simple Choice 10gb Each (unlimited until 2/2019)

          So 7 lines (10gb each) for $120 + taxes. No way I’m messing with that.

        • XB0n3z

          how are lines 5-7 free? I have the same plan as you but it’s $20 each line after the 4th.

        • Stephen

          I was on the early version of the 3 lines with 10gb each for $120 with the 4th line free. The difference between this and others is that the 4th line was coded in the billing as part of the $120 base instead of a free line. Then last November added the 2 free lines from that promo and then later the line from the add a line on us promo. So, I have 7 lines for $120 + taxes (the free lines also have about $4 per month in taxes).

        • CravingMender9

          I’m in a similar situation: 15% corporate discount:
          Line 1: Unlimited (+$20)
          Lines 2-9: 4gb each
          2 x Tablet Lines: 200mb free
          Free digits wearable line
          $10 family stateside international for all lines!
          $180 -15% discount + taxes for all this. Can’t beat that for Netflix.

      • LeTrueNoir

        I have the old spc unlimited 4 lines + 15 gb of tethering for 150+ tax no way I’m switching of thay ever take it a way I’m out of t-mobile XD

        • Terry Whitt

          I think you would find the T-Mobile One plan with 4 lines for $160 including taxes with autopay would be cheaper than your $150 + tax plan and you’d get the perks of T-Mobile One. I resisted changing from my Simple Choice plan (10GB/line) for awhile, but when they added kickback, it was a no brainer. When I changed, I had 8 phones on my Simple Choice plan and went from $270/month to $240, plus I get $10/line kickback (discount) on any line using less than 2GB data/month. Currently, I have 7 lines on the plan and often pay less than $200/month.

        • LeTrueNoir

          yea it would be beater if the HD pass was included but sadly that is extra & i have a tablet & a watch in the plan with i pay nothing for the lines cause of the Simple Choice discount. but yea for some people it is cheaper but for my usage is not

      • Michael

        Same here. That deal was amazing.

  • Acdc1a

    Sucks that it doesn’t work with 2 for $100. Still, can’t beat free.

    • The One

      Then change to the T-Mobile ONE plan – isn’t it the same price?

      • Acdc1a

        No. 2 for $120.

        • The One

          Sorry – that 2 for $100 promotion for T-Mobile ONE plans seemed like it was in effect for at least a year. Well, I’m sure they’ll offer something similar again one day. They always do something to get people to sign up in droves.

        • Alex L.

          even if they do, its only going to be 100 if you use auto pay. if not, then it will be 110. some people, like me, hate auto pay.

  • Alex L.

    this is only good if you dont want to be forced to use auto pay, pay for hd streaming and switch to a lesser plan. im on the 2 for 100, which is a far superior plan imo…

  • Croq

    Glad I finally made the jump over to T-Mobile One during their promos earlier in the year. I got 2 lines for $100 all-in, a 20% insider discount, and when I use less than 2 GB, I get up to $10 extra kickback per line for each one that qualifies, and One Plus for free too (not necessarily adding all of these in that order). Pretty happy right now.

    EDIT – it seems like the 2 for $100 option won’t qualify. If that’s true, not the end of the world, since I pay under $80 a month as it is with the insider discount and sometimes kickbacks.

    • NickZuclich

      What is this 20% kickback discount? AFAIK kickback is the $10 extra per line if you use less than two gigs, as you mentioned. Unless that “and” in between them was not meant to be?

      • JiGSaW525

        $10 each line is $20 on the $100 (100 for 2 plan) which is 20% of 100….my understanding. But yeah it’s $10 per line for kickback

        • NickZuclich

          Yes but he wrote the following, emphasis mine:

          . I got 2 lines for $100 all-in, a 20% kickback discount, AND when I use less than 2 GB, I get up to $10 extra per line for each one that qualifies,

        • Croq

          It’s corrected now. The 20% was referring to the insider discount they offered. Then it’s an extra $10 per line (for the 2 I have) for each line that stays under 2GB in a month.

      • Sharti24

        The 20% insider discount was a promo they were running in march. The promo codes were floating all over the internet and Employees were giving them out for free

        • Croq

          Yeah, sorry, I meant the insider discount, not kickback – I’ll see if I can edit that.

        • NickZuclich

          Man… I wish I would have known have that! That is absolutely amazing!

    • Sharti24

      You dont get the $10 kickback on the 3rd free line. They caught that loophole lol

    • The One

      Yeah, I lucked into the exact same deal. I was paying $140 before taxes with AT&T for 2 lines ($155 after taxes/fees). Then walked up to a T-Mobile kiosk at the mall just to play with one of the phones and found out about this super special promotion. I jumped on it immediately and knocked my average bill down to $80/month (all taxes/fees included), got a $300 gift card for switching, and then got a 3rd line for free a month later just because I could – i don’t even have a 3rd family member lol.

      Plus, as you mentioned, 2 of those lines still qualify for an additional $10 back if less than 2GB of data are used in a billing cycle. My wife rarely exceeds that so I’ve had $70 payments for 3 unlimited data lines! And now they’re throwing in free netflix?!?!

      #WINNING

      • Croq

        As per my recent edit, it looks like the 2 for $100 plan will not qualify for the Netflix offer. Still early though, maybe they’ll change that.

        • The One

          Can you tell me where does the press release say that? I’ve read it 2wice already and still haven’t found where One Plans with promo pricing are excluded.

        • Croq

          During the call, they said that some promo plans that people have, like 2 for $100 and the 55+ plan would not qualify for the Netflix promo.

          Also, in the press release, it states, “To qualify, all you need are two or more paid voice lines on T-Mobile ONE with taxes and fees included. Even customers with free lines from the Un-carrier’s wildly popular recent “line-on-us” deals qualify. Customers on Unlimited 55+ or 2 lines for $100 can get Netflix On Us simply by switching to the latest T-Mobile ONE plan. “

  • The One

    #GameChanger

    This is better than all the T-Mobile Tuesday offers combined!

    • SirStephenH

      For you maybe but many of us would have to pay much more in order to take advantage of this. “Free” pizza, movies, VUDU credits, clothing, $4 tickets, etc are worth far more than “free” Netflix to us personally. To each his own though. At least a few people are helped by this “Un-carrier” event.

      • The One

        I take it back now. Found out that I don’t qualify just because my One plan is discounted.

  • I Nuked You!

    I was hoping for no more carrier bloat clogging up phones.

    • Panzer

      I’m with on that but T-mobile has been better than most about letting us uninstall the garbage.

      • steveb944

        You can also disable.

    • yankeesusa

      That’s true. But at least it’s a lot less than att and verizon. On my friends att phone i counted 18 bloatware apps. On tmobile not counting tmobile account app which i use i only counted 3 and facebook was one of them along with that virus app

      • I Nuked You!

        Lookout A/V is the worst, I generally hide it, but holy cow, 18? That sucks.

    • SirStephenH

      You mean an actual pain point that Un-carrier was created to do away with? Nah, they stopped doing that a while ago.

  • Joe2050

    I’m on a single line T-Mobile One plan, does that mean we are screwed? I guess this doesn’t apply to us.

    • Alex L.

      yup, youre screwed. this is for tmo one family plans only

  • Mickey T

    Does anyone know which Netflix plan they are offering? the regular one or the one with 4k content?

    • MadMartigan

      You can get either – the bill credit will only be $9.99 though.

    • Alex Wagner

      T-Mobile is offering the standard $9.99 Netflix plan. If you want the premium $11.99 Netflix plan with four streams and Ultra HD, you can sign up for that and T-Mobile will charge the $2 difference to your T-Mo bill.

  • They_Call_Me_Bruce

    The ability to save money on two things I already use sounds like a good deal. I am thinking about just giving the free account to my mother in law, but that means having to buy her a Roku too (she doesn’t have an HDMI TV). Maybe an early Christmas gift.

    • SirStephenH

      Why give away the account? T-Mobile will pay for your existing account if you have one and if 2 simultaneous streams aren’t enough (Netflix basic) then you can upgrade and T-Mobile will charge you the difference (only $2 a month). You also know that Netflix allows for multiple users, right?

      • They_Call_Me_Bruce

        Good point.

  • Sharti24

    So if you have a single $70 plan you dont get the netflix promo? Dang that sux

  • They_Call_Me_Bruce

    What’s T-mobile’s relationship with Amazon? Any chance free Prime could be the next uncarrier move and save me a couple more bucks. I wish

    • steveb944

      Considering how long it took to get Amazon Prime content to not count against our data, not a very good relationship.

      • SirStephenH

        To be fair, Amazon Music and Video services are horrendous and Amazon does not play well with others.

        • steveb944

          Considering some of the other partners, it’s not that bad. Plus it’s such a huge customer base that it’s a necessary evil.

  • Sharti24

    Do they give you a promo code if you’re a current netflix customer or just the dreaded bill credits thats everyone hates

    • Acdc1a

      You are going to be billed for your Netflix on your T-Mobile bill and then you’re getting the dreaded bill credits.

  • Erik Papesh

    Well that’s bull. My GF and I have had Tmo for 9 years. Can’t get on a family plan without one of us losing the number we’ve had since the beginning. Would be nice to give us loyal customers something. It’s always new lines or family plans…

    • Acdc1a

      Um, that’s entirely untrue. You will not lose your phone number by combining accounts.

      • Erik Papesh

        Tell that to the rep at my local store

        • Acdc1a

          The rep was trying to churn you for an activation. Go back and demand to talk to a manager.

        • Alex L.

          i would go to a different store or call customer service

        • Timothy Poplaski

          The local stores are the biggest remaining pain point with TMo. Zero interest in anything except screwing customers over to bump their commissions. They weren’t mistaken. They were lying to you.

          As others have said, you can do a change of responsibility. Or better, port one of the numbers over to one of the other big carriers using some cheap phone off of Craig’s List. Then port it to T-Mobile as a new customer for whatever new customer get something free promo strikes your fancy.

        • arandomperson7

          I work in a store and what you said about local stores is true. I pride myself on knowing the ins and outs of every promotion and every policy but I’ve learned that the employees who do this are few and far between. All they can’t think of is the immediate money they get from the sale with no consideration as to how the customer will view this location after they exit.

          The problem is T-Mobile’s approach, they consider the store employees as sales people first and customer care reps as second. It’s telling that the training is all role playselling techniques and you don’t hear a word about customer service until the first customer complaint you receive.

        • They_Call_Me_Bruce

          Stores do seem to be the weakest part of T-mobile’s customer service. They are the last to know and the least informed. I’ve had times when I had to explain the promotion to them, or they tried to stack accessories onto the phone price and act like that’s how it’s sold. There is one store near me that is good and I try to go there, but if I’m not in that area then it’s hit or miss (usually miss).

        • Limeybastard

          Especially all these new franchise stores that are opening all over the place. Id sooner pull my testicle hairs out one byone with my fingers than visit one of these stores.

        • Yeah this isn’t true. I would message TForce http://www.twitter.com/tmobilehelp and DM them. More helpful honestly.

      • Phone Guy

        No you don’t. Just do it over the phone. Done it many times myself and never lost number.

    • David

      call care, its called a change of responsibility. Just have both of you there to talk to care and they will move one line over. Id say keep the account with oldest tenure

    • Lit

      I had the ft700 lines for years. I did a change of responsibility over the phone. Easy process.

    • arandomperson7

      That’s completely false, although store reps work on commission and going to the store for help with it means you are taking away (best case scenario) 30 minutes from that rep for something that doesn’t pay commission. So, that being said, many reps refuse to to get involved in long, unpaying issues and will just lie to get you to leave.

      • arandomperson7

        Unless one of your lines has a leased (jod) line. Leases can’t be transferred from one person to another.

    • Phone Guy

      Incorrect but super easy to fix. Port one of your numbers to ATT .25 cents per minute plan or $2 per day. Five minutes after your number ports you are an ATT Customer. Now get your ATT account number and port your ATT number back in to your family plan on the other account t creating a family plan. Super easy and legal to do. If u have more questions reach out and I will explain more. Takes a few minutes do do this plus a new TMobile and ATT sim card kit. AND you get all the 2 4 1 bonuses being offered for new customers or whatever the current promo is. Or do change of responsibility but don’t get new line deals.

  • hawkstwelve

    Important tidbit that isn’t being reported: Hidden by their press release, they upped the fees for TMO ONE. It used to be 2 lines for $100 (with autopay). Now with Netflix included, it’s 2 lines for $120 (with autopay).

    That means you pay $20 more a month for a $10 a month savings. And this is supposedly “Uncarrier”?

    • Derek

      Yeah, that’s pretty pathetic. I actually considered switching when I heard this announcement. In reality, this just makes you pay $10 more a month. :(

    • The One

      Looks like this is one of the few times when loyal customers get the deal and newbies don’t.

    • arandomperson7

      They didn’t up the fee. The standard prince for 2 lines on one is and has always been $120. Internally the 2 for $100 is considered a long running limited time promotion but not standard price.

      • yankeesusa

        Is the 2 for 100 promotion still going?

        • arandomperson7

          It is, so I can see how this would confuse a customer in the store. However if you have 4 or more lines you revert back to the $120. So unfortunately this is only an issue for people with minimal lines.

  • Jay

    Yo Alex, you might wanna amend this article. The 2/$100 One plan does NOT qualify.

    • The One

      From T-Mobile’s Press Release:

      “To qualify, all you need are two or more paid voice lines on T-Mobile ONE with taxes and fees included.”

      It doesn’t mention anything about excluding the special promo price plans.

      • Derek

        If you listened to the Q and A, John actually said himself, that this plan does NOT qualify. So yeah, it does exclude it.

        • The One

          Then either he is mistaken or they need to amend their press release. AFAIK, the T-Mobile ONE plan is still the same plan but some people got it for a great price.

        • yankeesusa

          It’s not what he says, it’s what’s in writing. I’m sure they’ll fix it if it was in error.

      • Jay

        It’s in C2 that it doesn’t qualify. C2 is T-Mobile’s employee doc system so, yeah, it doesn’t qualify unfortunately. (I am an employee.)

  • dontsh00tmesanta

    Cool

  • (J²)

    T-Mobile One TE (Excluded) also isn’t included in this offer. There’s no current offer to switch to T-Mobile One TI and keep free lines. Between 2 free lines and T-Mobile One Plus Promo, I’d be spending $115 more on account changes just to get Netflix On Us. I’ll pass, It’s obviously a lot cheaper for everyone on my account to buy Netflix separately.

  • lomsha

    How is that a wireless industry pain point? They are out of ideas. Oh and us friendless single people with 1 line can go suck a rock lol.

    • (J²)

      Well, it is technically on T-Mobile and encourages use of Netflix but for many of existing customers, making the necessary plan changes will end up costing more than it’s worth.

      • JJCommonSense

        RIGHT?! I have a legacy unlimited plan with 2 lines for $100 + 2 free lines.. Tmobile One will be a losing option for me.

        • Travis Tabbal

          Yup. Same place here. 2/$100 + 2 free. No promos for me. That’s okay though. I still get a great deal on service, which is what I actually want from them.

    • Jason Caprio

      Yeah seriously. John has run out of ideas. This so called Un-Carrier move has nothing to do with the mobile industry. He just wants to throw “free stuff” at us as a bonus for those who sign up more people. This is also one of his ways to try to convince people to switch from a lesser cost plan to a more more expensive one.

      I know how businesses work, they don’t do anything out of the kindness of their hearts. Netflix probably is paying T-Mobile a boatload of money to advertise/promote for them.

      • Sharti24

        “at us”. dude you have verizon lol

        • Jason Caprio

          Well “us” is referring to the general population lol

        • Sharti24

          Im just giving you a hard time. Now watch out for that andrew addison guy. He’s out to get you lol

    • npaladin2000

      They’re not out of ideas, they’re simply responding to competition. AT&T’s got DirecTV Now they’re offering, Verizon’s got their video service. T-Mobile needed to offer something. I would have been happier with Hulu, but I’ll definitely take free Netflix.

      Responding to compeition, of course, while necessary, isn’t nearly as disruptive as their old Uncarrier moves.

    • (J²)

      If I recall correctly, it was speculated that this would be part of the last Uncarrier announcement as it has been highly demanded by customers.

      Apparently, some of these ideas that some of us find to be “meh” are actually being requested.

    • THXULTRA

      And you pay more per line then people do with multiple lines… Don’t understand excluding single line plans from this promo.

    • AJ2

      Main reason I never have returned to Tmobile. Not paying $70 a month

      • 1ceTr0n

        Good riddance

  • Michael

    This is amazing! How can they offer something like this? I havve the One plan with 3 lines with one of the lines free. I pay $100 a month but since the other line does not use more than 2 GB I end up paying $90. That’s a better price than I have ever had for unlimited service. Now you are telling me I can get free netflix on top of that? Amazing!!

    • arandomperson7

      Sounds like you have 2 for $100, if that’s so then you don’t qualify for this

      • Michael

        What do you mean this does not qualify? I have the One Plan.

        • Dmitri

          I am in a similar situation – pay 100 per month for 3 lines (2 for 100 promo and one free line). Just reached out to T-Mobile and was told I do not qualify. Was offered to switch to the ‘right’ plan for the same price but refused – sure they would mess up (as always happens when their eccentric CEO comes up with a new idea). I had to wait 4 months for the ‘free’ iPhone 7 rebates to start. Same with anything else that TMO head rolls out. Not worth the hassle of endless customer service calls to extract the rebate from them.

        • Limeybastard

          T Mobile promos are very difficult as Ive learned also in the past. Two free lines promo took ages with countless time wasted contacting customers services, as did their original promo of paying off my ETF when I joined from ATT 3.5 years ago. Hassle.

      • Michael

        Ok I see it now 2 lines for $120. I am better off paying Netflix on my own.

    • SirStephenH

      The trick is that T-Mobile isn’t actually paying full price for the basic Netflix plan, nowhere near it.

  • Sharti24

    “TMobile does note that customers on Unlimited 55+ or 2 lines for $100 can get the Netflix On Us promo by switching to the latest T-Mobile One plan.”

    Confused by this. Arent both plans considered “tmobile 1”? What is the new 1 plan then?

    • arandomperson7

      Both the 2 for $100 and the 55+ plans are considered promotions by TMobile. The normal one promotion price for 2 lines is $120. That’s the plan you need for free Netflix.

      • Eddie Yasi

        Which would make no sense for me. I’m on the 55+ plan so paying $60/month for two unlimited lines. (Which is a fantastic deal!) I’d have to DOUBLE what I’m paying per month to save 10 per month? I think I know my answer to that….

      • Michael

        Isn’t the regular price 120 but you receive a credit for auto payments?

        • arandomperson7

          Regular is $130 and the auto pay makes it $120

  • Joe P

    T-Mobile to single people: Drop dead (after paying more for your line).

    • AJ2

      Main reason I’m on project fi

  • THXULTRA

    Funny listening to T-Mobile bash AT&T’s HBO deal because it is only on a certain plan and then they limit this promo to T-Mobile one. Not even the people on the new 2lines for $100 get this. First charging fees for Jump on demand upgrades, Next year requiring down payments on base models for JOD, Now this promo that is only for certain plans. Becoming more Carrier every day… T-Mobile should watch out for comcast they have a great phone deal and could start taking customers…

    • Sharti24

      I bet they get a lot of backlash about 2 for $100 and 55+ plans not being able to get the promo and then allow it by the 12th when its released. You’ll see!

      • THXULTRA

        I think I’m most surprised they are excluding single line simple choice customers. They pay the most per line and don’t get this. I wouldn’t be surprised if they add them to the list. They want people off simple choice so sure I will never get it. If they keep taking things away from us though may be worth it to look at comcast I can get two lines for $90 with them…

        • Andy Shannon

          They have no interest in simple choice customers or ever mentioning those plans again, it wont get added.

        • THXULTRA

          I agree, He even said so today that they want everyone on T-Mobile one. The old Simple Choice unlimited is a much better plan though would be stupid to give it up to get free netflix.

  • Mike Sage

    So Simple Choice customers are out of luck? Been with T-mo 10 years, gunna be pissed if we’re excluded despite loyalty.

    • THXULTRA

      Yep we are excluded. T-Mobile wants to get everyone on T-Mobile one. At least they are letting us Keep Simple choice. I just find it funny they bashed AT&T with the HBO promo and then do the same thing :)

      • yankeesusa

        That is so true. I’m on the select choice plan and those are left behind also.

        • THXULTRA

          I would rather keep my current plan then get free netflix I will rarely use.

    • jmfos

      Simple choice is a better plan with 10gb per line mainly because it is cheaper.

      • chunk

        Depends. I had 6 lines on simple choice 10gb. 140 for 4 + 20 each additional was 180 for 6 lines. Plus tax it came out to 198. Plus always getting throttled since i use more than 10gb a month. 6 lines on One is 200 with taxes included. Minus 50 in kickbacks because im the only one who really uses data. Thats 150 a month i pay for 6 lines. 198>150. How was simple choice cheaper for me? Not everyone’s situation is the same. And saving an extra $10 for me here because i use netflix anyway is great. This should bring me down to $140 for 6 lines.

    • gmo8492

      Simple Choice is completely ignored once again.

    • Ceefu

      Also 10+ years here, also on SC. I find the “Hookup” 25% discount for life a bigger slap in the face.

  • arandomperson7

    I’m on the 2 for 100, so I’d have to increase my plan by $20 to save $10 for Netflix. No thanks.

    • Sharti24

      Lol exactly

    • AJ2

      Tmobile is like Trump. They try to make you think they’re doing you a favor when they’re obviously only out for themselves

      • SirStephenH

        Not T-Mobile, corporations in general.

        This is capitalism folks. Screw over the little guy for short-term profits.

  • The One

    Okay, I need clarification because there are two different T-Mobile plans that offer (2) lines for $100. One is an old Simple Choice plan that has NOTHING to do with T-Mobile One. The other is just a promo price for a genuine T-Mobile One plan.

    When the press release states: “To qualify, all you need are two or more paid voice lines on T-Mobile ONE with taxes and fees included.”… AND… “T-Mobile customers on the Unlimited 55+ or 2-lines-for-$100 plans will need to switch to the latest T-Mobile One plan to qualify for Netflix On Us.”

    It leads me to believe that they’re talking about the old Simple Choice plans for $100 not being eligible and ALL “One” plans with 2+ lines should be eligible regardless of what killer rate you have. Is there anyone who can confirm either way?

    • Sharti24

      Well if the 55+ plan is excluded you would already know the new 2 for $100 plan is excluded as well

    • noh1bvisas

      it has to be a tmo one plan. it’s pretty clear.

      • The One

        If it was that simple, then I would qualify because I do have a One plan. However, it is now apparent that you have to also pay full price for the One plan in order to be eligible. I and many others pay a discounted rate.

        • noh1bvisas

          how are you getting a discount? there’s one ONE plan. 70 bucks a month with autopay.

        • The One

          I have 3 lines for $80/month total with another $20/month in savings if we use less than 2GB per line. But they’re all on the One Plus Plan, just not paying full price.

    • Raymond Romero

      That’s the way I read it as well

  • Randall Lind

    I am on T-Mobile One and I have a tablet and phone so would I be able to get it? I am not paying more to get Netflix if this is the case.

    • (J²)

      No, only voice lines count.

      • Randall Lind

        I am tired of paying T-Mobile. I just got my free tablet paid off (gave up fighting for the $7 every month and just paid it myself.) Now I am working on paying off my other tablet. That will just leave my bill and EIP for phone.

  • Sharti24

    What’s next? Tmobile tuesdays is only available for lines of 10+

    • Phone Guy

      Why that comment? TMobile still pays for each account and needs to spread the cost. Maybe you should ask for 20 concurrent streams rather than 2…..

      • Sharti24

        Tmobile gets a discount and netflix gets the advertising

        • SirStephenH

          Exactly. People are trying to make it out to be like T-Mobile is just giving everyone $10/month. That’s just not the case just like with T-Mobile Tuesdays.

  • Zach Chadwick

    This is ridiculous. They’re going to rid of 2lines for $100/mo, and charge $20 more? $10 per line extra? That’s not really ‘Netflix on Us’. That’s like saying ‘let us charge you more, so we can pay for Netflix for you’. THIS sounds like Verizon, changing their unlimited plan, to tiers of ‘unlimited’ to include HD video. This is Bullshit, and I’m sorry to say. I’ve had t-mobile for 4 years, and this is crazy. This isn’t an ‘uncarrier’ event. Not even worth a mention. Complete Bullshit.

    • Sean Sorlie

      None is is changing anything… You can keep your current plan.

    • F4LL0U7

      They’re offering an incentive to sign up for a more expensive plan. If paying for your current plan plus your current Netflix subscription is cheaper for you, then continue doing that. This incentive isn’t for you. This incentive is for people who missed the 2 lines for $100 promotion.

    • slybacon

      You are crazy. Not everyone pays $50 per line like you do. My family pays $27 per line (9 lines at $245 after kickback) on Tmobile ONE. Free netflix for us. Unlimited streaming. No extra money paid.

    • SirStephenH

      Simple choice plans are not going away. They’re just giving existing customers the finger like normal carriers do. Not un-carrier at all.

    • Rob Pickett

      That’s why u don’t switch

    • It’s a great deal for some people. Family of four your price stays the same.

  • AJ2

    And single people are screwed by Legere and company again. Just reminds me why when years ago, a rude Tmobile rep told me to leave, I did

    • F4LL0U7

      Could you explain how offering something for free is “screwing” single people? They’re not taking your current plan away from you. They are offering an incentive to sign up for a more expensive plan. If you don’t want to take advantage of the incentive, then don’t. You’re not getting screwed; you’re choosing not to take advantage of a promotion they’re offering.

      • SirStephenH

        Single lines DO NOT qualify. Therefore screwing over single people.

        Please keep up.

        • F4LL0U7

          You don’t qualify for a promotion. The product you have is not negatively affected, therefore, you’re not screwed over. Stop whining about it.

        • lomsha

          And stop being a fanboy

        • F4LL0U7

          Right, because applying logic to a situation instead of whining like a baby is called being a fanboy.

        • chunk

          No one is forcing anything on you. Just because you dont qualify for something, that means youre getting screwed over? Let me guess, entitled millennial or entitled millennial’s kid?

  • Steven

    Man, y’all some complaining bitches….

  • EmeryE100

    Gimmick to get you to pay for the high price plans. Not doing it!

    • Rob Pickett

      U are crazy tmo is the shit

    • slybacon

      What is a “high price” to you per line? My bill has gone down since upgrading to T-mobile ONE ($27 per line for 9 lines).

      • chunk

        My bill went down as well from 6 lines on simple choice to 6 lines on a one plan. And i can understand my situation doesnt apply to all. I cant understand why all these people complaining cant understand such a simple concept. This works for a lot of people, but not all.

  • Bklynman

    Really? Wow! Can’t wait to do this! Rolling my eyes.

    • slybacon

      You don’t watch Netflix?! You are one in a million. Special.

      • Bklynman

        LoL! No I don’t!

  • Adam Thodey

    If it was a true uncarrier move, he’d let you choose which streaming service you want – netflix, hbo, showtime, disney, hulu… and then over a period of time include all of them. he’d also not care what plan you are on. provide the same customer experience for all plans, even the old grandfathered ones from years ago, like i used to have until i switched to t-mobile one because of our usage. But then it is like Legere is boasting that he wants to merge with a cable company like Dish Network… to be a full entertainment communications company…i’d think a bold uncarrier move that would have been better is to be a world without borders and a world without buckets.. so unlimited high speed data (think MIMO 4×4 and 4GLTE /5G speeds) , unlimited calling, unlimited calling in any country to any country. now of course some countries charge the originator of the call like Australia, but then again, he wants an uncarrier move.. i think he could then franchise or start T-mobile in other countries and charge them the appropriate amount that it all balances out across the world…

    • RedWolfeXR

      er, T-Mobile IS a franchise of Deutsche Telecom. There are Tmobiles all over the world. I had a Tmobile handset when I was working in Austria.

  • gmo8492

    I thought this was a joke, but this is the worst uncarrier move ever.

  • Sam_Austin

    This is a nice move, saves you $10/month. But it’s probably still not enough to make switching from Simple Choice feasible, plus I don’t know if I’d lose my 3 free lines (two from Black Friday and one from the T-Mobile Tuesdays promotion)

  • Dell

    Yall some entitled pricks! T-MOBILE didn’t have to give us free Netflix, but yet they are giving us $120/year to put back in or pocket. The only condition they have is already 2 lines on a plus plan and yall act like changing the plan is the end of the world…God you people are incredible

    • Sharti24

      I have 2 for $100 on a plus plan and i dont qualify

      • SoloX

        yeap me too. Not saving any $$ if we switch to the $120 plan for 2 lines.
        I rather save $20 than get free netflix. sticking with my 2 lines for $100

    • TylerCameron

      Thy change their plan structure at least twice a year and it’s ALWAYS been for the worst since the last good change. The last good hangs was when they finally gave us the option to have truly unlimited data, without the 2gb throttle cap.
      Ever since they took away the option to pick minutes, the plans have gotten more expensive — now their plans cost more than Verizon’s and they’ve started a really ugly trend of “We have unlimited data with select services throttled too!”

      • THXULTRA

        There was a period when T-Mobile was really a industry leader. It was when they had simple choice and even the limited plans were only limited high speed data. The new T-Mobile One plan isn’t as good as the old simple choice unlimited. I am happy they are at least letting us keep the old plan. If forced to T-Mobile One I would probably switch to xfinity mobile since they are $45/month for unlimited. As T-Mobile improves their network they become less competitive price wise. The new “upgrade fee” for JOD and next year requiring a down payment for base phones is also a big step backwards.

        • noh1bvisas

          one thing to consider with xfinity: they are reselling verizon, so you will be deprioritized when the network is congested.

        • THXULTRA

          Ya I would have to read all the fine print before I would switch. Curious the deal Comcast has with Verizon. They also use thier hotspots… Think there are issues handing off from LTE to the hotspot also they need to work out. Do like their business model though for mobile. You can mix limited and unlimited on the same plan like t-mobile used to do. As long as T-Mobile lets me keep my current plan I don’t see reason to switch. Also not going to T-Mobile one for netflix…

    • lomsha

      They didn’t have to? Well we didn’t ask for it either lol. Would rather have a worthwhile change that benefits all customers.

  • Devin McBride

    I like how people are complaining about free stuff…that will definitely save alot of people $10/month.

    I like the benefit alot. One less service I’ll have to separately subscribe to.

  • pda96

    This is a nice freebie for ONE customers. However, Un-Carrier move, it’s not !! To use TMO’s thinking, an Un-Carrier move is something that removes a “pain point” from having a phone plan. Not having free Netflix is NOT a pain point for VZ or ATT customers. People are not going to dump their carriers for TMO just because they can get free Netflix. So there’s nothing industry shattering about this move.

    I currently have the 10GB/line Simple Choice plan. TMO will have to try harder than this if they want me to switch to the ONE plan.

    • lpnny

      how much do you pay for your 10GB/line simple choice plan? the ONE plan
      has been really affordable and i came from a 4GB (or whatever it
      was)/line simple choice plan

      • pda96

        I’m paying $120 for 4 lines, 10GB/line. With taxes and stuff, it’s another $15 or so. When ONE was introduced, it was $35/line. Now, it’s $40/line. If TMO have a $140 for 4 lines promo this BF or Xmas, I’ll switch to ONE.

        • lpnny

          ahh yes; i was on one 4 lines for 160.. at one point they offered 4 lines for 140 and was able to switch to that; not bad IMO considering i do often use more than 10GB on a couple of lines.

        • Kilroy672

          We have the 2 line $100 unlimited plan. Plus 2 EIP’s =$192 a month. I have the Jump 1.0 and I would never give that up for anything. I switch phones way to much. T-Mobile One is not much better than what we have now.

        • Calvin Nop

          For jump 1.0, are you still just paying the sales tax and finance for 24 months? still $0 down? I haven’t used my jump 1.0 since the note5 released.

        • gorilla

          I’m sure there will be a promo…Of course you have to add a NEW line and can’t use move from an existing line. No love for existing customers.

    • Chris Collins

      I have two lines 6GB a line comes to $93 a month after taxes and fees. I never use more then 3gb a month, so going to a $120 a month plan makes no sense.

  • TylerCameron

    Not falling for that trap.
    Remember when T-Mobile was budget-friendly and didn’t charge you extra just to have unthrottles video streaming?
    I member.

    • Jason Caprio

      I remember when T-Mobile was significantly less expensive than Verizon/AT&T. One day T-Mobile might be better than Verizon with coverage and speed. That will be the day the T-Mobile costs more than Verizon.

      • tehboogieman

        Yeah, that’s how the game works. Like exactly how it works

      • TylerCameron

        T-Mobile already is more expensive than Verizon. A line of unlimited data on Verizon is $80 while it’s $95 on T-Mobile.
        The coverage is there tho. I have a T-Mobile line as a personal line and a Verizon phone as my work phone. The coverage is about the same. T-Mobile has dramatically better signal strength in my city tho. And the speeds everywhere I go are dramatically faster.

        • Sharti24

          Verizon has double the customers so yeah your speeds on tmobile will be faster

  • brybry

    this is pretty much aimed to gain new customers not retain old ones.

    • Chris Austin

      but its an awesome added perk for old ones… its a free $120 a year

      • Chris Collins

        But it’s not it says you have to upgrade off the two lines for $100. Which means you would have to pay an extra $20 a month for a $10 netflix.

        • Trevor Lee

          Yup. No, thank you John. I’m a little bummed. If they would raise or remove the 32 GB soft cap, I’s probably do it. They need to add value for me to want to give up what I have.

  • noh1bvisas

    they could give half for single lines. that would’ve been a big deal.

  • SirStephenH

    Another big f*** you to existing customers.
    Remember when Un-carrier used to apply to existing plans? Not since T-Mobile One…

    • Chris Austin

      current customers get it too and even if you already have a netflix account

      • Joseph Cathey

        Not if you’re on a grandfathered plan

      • yankeesusa

        Yes, current customers on a tmobile one plan.

    • Locust Gee

      Remember when you have to hustle to survive – Gramps?

    Give-me $5/month off instead!

  • Tom

    Not on T-Mobile One … I think I’m on Simple Choice. I’m not switching to get free Netflix.

  • ferruccio83

    Personally I can’t complain, I’ve been with T-Mo for close to 4 yrs. My corporate discount is 15%.
    5 voice lines (6gb sc)
    1 tablet (6gb syc)
    1 gear s2 (500mb)
    (2 phone with OG jump/lookout premium)
    Total after tax: 149.XX
    Keep the “free” Netflix
    No one can touch that pricing
    Patience, things change

  • Kevin Zefa

    I like it. I have been with tmo for 12 years and have had a variety of plans and with 4 of us now on the One plan for $160 out the door with unlimited everything. We use about 30-50 gb a month per line in data. Saving 120 a year is a good deal unless I am missing something.

    • Petey07

      Same with me Been back and forth with T-Mobile, I had 6 lines on Simple Choice plan (2 unlimited & one 5gb LTE), and was paying more on that plan versus T-Mobile One which everyone gets unlimited, $10 discount kickback, HD for all lines and paying $170 for 6 lines… Plus having all these freebies. cant complain!

  • Jason Betts

    I’m on T-Mobile ONE, currently paying $185/month for 13 lines (but 2 are SyncUP DRIVEs) my bill is about half what it should be thanks to a multitude of promotions, but none of them are the 2/$100 or the 55+, so can I still get free Netflix?

    My promos are:
    $10 off first 4 VLs for 4th line free customers who switch to taxes included; This one’s on us; BETATHANKS x4 lines; 1/2 off two lines; $5 ONE Plus +DIGITS T&T Promo; One Plus PROMO x5 lines; get an LG K10 free x2 lines; free SyncUP DRIVE; free Galaxy On5 with T-Mobile ONE.

    I also get KickBack on two lines basically every month and I have two lines with the $10 off your MI line when account also has a voice line.

    • tehboogieman

      That’s a tough question based on their press info. It sounds like for those who have at least 2 full price lines on your account it will qualify, but that half off two lines might disqualify you from getting the Netflix benefit. Either way, sounds like you’re getting a great deal and even without NF you’re well ahead of most others.

    • TmoRepNLovingIt

      With all those promos running concurrently, i would recommend that you never make any changes to your account… ever!

  • Trevor Lee

    Not giving up my 2/$100. It would make no sense to raise my bill $20 so I can stop paying $10 for Netflix.

    • Iphart

      It makes sense to TMobile.

      • Trevor Lee

        A lot of people are gonna jump into this without thinking. I’d rather keep my $20 and use it for whatever I want.

    • yankeesusa

      Yea, but isn’t your 2/$100 account a tmobile one account?

      • Trevor Lee

        It is, but it is too cheap to qualify.

  • Kevin

    Anyone feels abandoned? Because I do.

  • JB

    Yeeeah. Not giving up my 2/100. Besides I think I still have roughly 2 years of Netflix promo credit left from the various Samsung promotions. Though I will see what CS can do for me, being that I have a couple of additional lines on top of my 2/100.

  • Tale 85

    What I see here is T-Mobile helping the people who pay full price for more than one “T-Mobile One” plan. Those of us who have discounted plans already have price breaks so we get to subscribe to Netflix on our own. Personally, I just jumped on the 55+ Plan, gained a line, kept my One Plus Promo, and my Digits for Life sim. So basically three lines for $20 less a month. Don’t use Netflix on mobile anyway.

    • Iphart

      Netflix offer is on any device, not just mobile.
      But totally agree with you the 55+ offer is awesome and that we can get Netflix on our own!

      • Tale 85

        Mainly because I’m old… (55+). Netflix is best viewed on a 40″ device. I realize that a Netflix subscription applies to everything. But I’ll suffer with Wi-Fi. At least until T-Mobile offers a stand alone LTE Mobile Hotspot “Unlimited” plan.

        • TmoRepNLovingIt

          Why not just add a phonr line with the unlimitrd hotspot $25 feature? Leave the phone at home and plugged in

        • Tale 85

          I’m actually doing that. Sort of. The second unlimited line I picked up with 55+ is on a Idol 4S. With Continuum I have a 40″ LTE “Desktop”.

          One thing John Legere keeps saying is that all internet should be mobile internet. With the 600MHz rolling out it should be possible to have a “Hotspot” as our main internet provider. I might just happen by next year.

        • TmoRepNLovingIt

          I agree. That would be incredible. I feel like thats coming soon, most likely after a good amount of 600mHz is deployed. It makes too much sense not to do it unless it overtaxes the network too much. Im not too knowledgeble in the logistics/technical area, so idk what is or what isnt possible. Maybe the $25 unlimited hotspot feature is sort of a test? Eventually the technology will make it possible and we’ll all rejoice. Wireless ultra high speed home internet provided by T-mobile?! Sign me up! Especially with my employee discount lol

        • TmoRepNLovingIt

          In fact, for the past 6 months my home internet has been a dedicated lg v20 with the unlimited 4g LTE hotspot. It exclusively sits at home and powers my whole household’s internet need. Its flawless. I haven’t had even one instance of slowdowns or buffering, no matter how many devices we’re using simultaneously. It seriously works as good or better than any cable internet connection that I’ve ever used.

  • chunk

    Depends on the user and current plan. Your situation =/= everyone else’s

    • Trevnerdio

      Well yes, obviously. But we have a really old grandfathered plan which is expensive enough as is, and even before the raised the price, they wanted an additional $50 a month from us with only 4 lines? No thank you.

  • Really wish this were just a simple One Plus perk rather than a perk available only to those who pay full price. The lines between the One and One Plus plans are slim with HD promos and auto-spam identification, and if you don’t travel frequently, the flight benefits are being underutilized. Making Netflix a One Plus Perk simplifies it for everyone and makes the deal a lot more attractive. Instead of forcing customers into full-price plans and losing promos, they can make up the missing revenue attracting new and existing customers into the Plus add-on. This also helps the Plus add-on feel like it has value over a promotional One plan.

    • marque2

      The one hour free Internet, and free texting on flight is nice to have, but I use it much less than I expected, even flying an average of once a week. Usually by the time I get on the plane, I have already read all the websites I want to read – and the only purpose would be to send the wife a text should I have forgotten pre-flight to tell her the plane will be late.

      • I agree. That’s why I’d love to see NF as part of the Plus tier. The main reason I added it was for Name ID, but when they decided to add scam identification as a standard feature, it became less useful. It also has its fair share of problems (as an app). Unless they spice it up some more, I may remove it as well as some other account features I am finding worthless.

  • Sharti24

    Make this a t-mobile tuesday perk! A one time code good for 1 year kinda like how they did with the MLB package back in April

  • Joe

    Incoming all the complaints for not giving it to everyone… Remember there a business that needs to make money!!

  • marque2

    You missed it, a few months ago they were offering fantastic deals on Tmo One. I didn’t think I would ever switch, but my T-Mo one plan is cheaper than the 5gig plan it replaced. And I think I get plus features as well (like non limited video).

    Just look out for the specials and sales, and then when you see one jump on it. Tmo usually has a fall sale in October/November, so you might still be in luck.

    Also note it is the 3rd and 4th and 5th line that are really cheap, so you might want to get together with friends, or parents and join en mass, so you can take advantage of the family plan.

      We’re on the family plan, and I contacted them on the last day of the $5 “truly unlimited” plan and it was like $50 more per month hahaha

    Great Commercial. T-MOBILE is the leader in Wireless, not the biggest, yet, but definitely the LEADER. Thank You T-Mobile, Thank You John Legere. They keep getting faster & the customer service keeps getting better.

    It’s actually a rip off. It isn’t free. Don’t fall for it. Do the math. It cost you $20-40 or more extra every month. To be eligible you have to have two of the new one or one plus plans. Which conveniently increases in price by $20 the day the promotion starts. And if you only have one line then you need a second line which means you also need a new phone. Which most people would have to finance costing even more money. Want free Netflix? Then plan on shelling out an additional $20-60 extra every month. Don’t be stupid. T-Mobiles marketing team are liers and will squeeze every penny out of you they can and try to act like your best friend. That is until you hit your data cap then they stop caring about you. Myself for example have had a T-Mobile one plus line for $70 supposedly unlimited plus I pay an additional $25 for Hotspot with “unlimited 4g speeds” & “Bing on” HD streaming. Yet after I hit 32gigs between 2pm-11pm I barely even have service with data at times it is 15kbps or lower. You are being told one thing and basically being lied too.
    Good thing I am switching. Sprint is giving away free service for a year with 10 gigs of Hotspot and unlimited everything else with a 22gig data cap. I bought a nice phone on eBay for $100 that is better than the phone I an still paying for through T-Mobile. So even if the service sucks. Who cares? It’s free. It says you can only transfer numbers from Verizon but I actually used my Google voice number and a couple of freedompop numbers that I didn’t even use now I have 4 free lines. That’s awesome.

      “After I hit 32 Gigs” – -there is your problem right there. It is not a rip off if you already HAVE 2 lines that qualify.

      If you are hitting 32 gigs then you will find all of the carriers will start throttling. If Sprint works well for you where you are then good on you, mate. You can rotate sims and leech 80GB, until its no longer free next year.

    I signed up for TMobile One a few months ago. Was able to ADD the free Netflix today without changing my Plan. It is just an add-on that you get for free.

      Please share how you did this.

    I took advantage of , a few months ago they allowed you to add a third line on for free. Headed my 88-year-old mother on. He uses very little voice and data. What I want to see if I qualify for Netflix they said no because of that third free line.
