T-Mobile offering prepaid plan with unlimited LTE data for $50 per month



T-Mobile is launching a couple of special offers aimed at the prepaid market.

For a limited time, T-Mobile is offering a prepaid plan that includes unlimited 4G LTE data, talk, and text, all for $50 per month. Video streams at 480p resolution on this plan, and tethering tops out at 3G speeds. Also of note is that customers who use more than 50GB of data in a single month may see their speeds slowed until the next month in times of network congestion.

T-Mo is also running a deal that’ll get you a free phone. Just purchase a $100 ePin or service credit and T-Mobile will give you a free LG Aristo 2, Moto E5 Play, or T-Mobile REVVL. This offer isn’t new, but it is still available if you’re in the market for an affordable prepaid phone. T-Mobile says this a limited time deal, so it’s unclear how much longer it’ll be available.

Both of these deals are available in stores.

    Same price as metro but with metro you get 5gb of tethering

    • PC_Tool

      Sounds like unlimited tethering here – just capped at 3G. What I really want to know is if that 3G includes HSPA+.

      • Acdc1a

        It’s .6mbps…very slow.

        • riverhorse

          Yes, terrible even for email and light surfing.

  • Corey Jalette

    I have the 2 voice lines and 1 tablet line for $100 all include the free one plus promo. (HD video & 10gb lte tethering)

    I remember when prepaid plans were cheaper than postpaid plans. Lol

    “Also of note is that customers who use more than 50GB of data in a single month may see their speeds slowed until the next month in times of network congestion.”

    Unless this is different than postpaid, the deprioritization on T-Mobile is 53GB now.

    • dcmanryan

      Hmmmm. Wasn’t aware of the 53gb. Thanks.

    • Sharti24

      Where does it say you now get 53gb? All i see is 50gb at the bottom of their website

      • PC_Tool

        I get the warning every month.

        About 2 months ago I noticed that they bumped it to 53. I even posted about it here.

        (Could have sworn it was you that replied to that comment confirming you got the same, but perhaps not)

        Message is:“You’ve used 51 GB of data this month. If you exceed 53 GB before your T-Mobile cycle resets on 11/xx/2018, you still get unlimited data but may at times notice reduced speeds in areas with network congestion. Info & usage tips:[website]”

        Initial response contained the website – which Tmonews requires moderation for – so you might get a double-post of this if they decide to “allow” links to T-Mobile.

        • Sharti24

          Hmm ok. I used 80gb last month i will wait to see if its at 50 or 53 this month

        • PC_Tool

          I found the post – You’ve already gotten it once. ;-)

          Just got the same text today. Even though im at 47GB

        • riverhorse

          And Bingo was his Namo!
          Apart from that, didn’t others in that thread report they were receiving slightly different numbers? Like 3 or 4 different limits reported? Or maybe my memory is crappy…

        • PC_Tool

          Not that I can see in Disqus – but who knows.

        • riverhorse

          This means you delete old texts. I guess I’m a hoarder– never delete anything.

        • T Redd

          I got the message last Wednesday and it said 50gb.

        • Sharti24

          Weird, I just used 51gb of data this month and havent recieve any texts from tmobile about my usage.

          My plan resets on the 2nd of every month

  • randian

    How do you get close to a 53GB cap with 480p video? I’ll take a much lower cap if they’ll give me HD video.

    • MPTTVN

      VPN + Streaming.

    • Brett S

      Curious what kind of content you watch on a phone that you care if it’s HD or not? Or are you tethering to a TV?

      • riverhorse

        Or tether to tablet/laptop on the road, and wifi is crappy or blocks your desired content.
        Like if you bet sports / horses, viewing on phone is suboptimal, ditto 480 on the larger gadget.

    • riverhorse

      Then you’ll hit your cap so fast, it’ll render service for the rest of the month fairly shitty.

  • TmoRepNLovingIt

    Ummm this plan has been out for a month or more already..

  • topher

    This deal is almost as good as my family plan right now.

  • NardVa

    More and more content is going HD and screens are getting bigger. Most mid range phones are 720P or higher and flagship phones are almost 2K. Doesn’t make since to limit video to 480P. The new OnePlus 6T is 1080P with a screen that is almost 6.5 inches.

    • Sharti24

      Doesn’t make sense? Sure it does. Pay the extra $15 month for 1plus or Tell that to a congested NYC network when everyone is trying to stream 1080p on their phone. 480p is staying until tmobile deploys 5G

    • Acdc1a

      480p on a 6″ screen is more than acceptable. If you watch Youtube or Netflix you’ll notice that more times than not you get 720p…

  • riverhorse

    Assuming no Netflix, Tmo Tuesdays, discount for AutoPay– for rating purposes, no complaint.
    3g Tether and 480p are gotchas because we’re all castin’ &
    ‘spottin’ on the road these days. Even for simple Wifi to tablet/laptop, unless it’s a large place I frequent a lot, Tether provides much more security AND reliable speeds– a lot of public Wifi is real shitty / forces restart every so often / blocks a lot of legitimate sites unfairly / etc.
    A good compromise would’ve been default 720p streaming with some amount of Full HD– makes a huge difference on a tablet/laptop, along “some amount of LTE Tether allowance”– no matter how small.

  • PC_Tool

    The post two months ago was my description of the new limit being 53GB (regardless of what you’re at when they warn you) based on the text I received.

    My understanding of your response was that you’d gotten the same text regarding the 53 GB limit and the only difference was that you were @ 47GB when you got it and I was at 51 when I got it.

    Perhaps I misunderstood. Regardless, I got the same warning for this period – 53GB.

    • Sharti24

      you’re right, My bad. Last month i got the texts at 48 and 50gb. See what you’re at this month and report back please. Curious to know if its at 50 or 53gb now

      • PC_Tool

        Just saw another post on another site from someone saying it went back *down* to 50 the last alert he got (but that he had noticed it at 53 the last few).

        I wonder if T-Mo screwed up somewhere along the line and are now correcting?

  • Techngro

    I’m having trouble finding the plan on their website. Is it something that they only do in-store?
