T-Mobile launches discounted rate plan and Samsung phone deal for first responders


T-Mobile is rolling out a special offer for first responders.

Magenta First Responder offers discounts on T-Mobile’s standard rate plan. Available to state and local law enforcement officers, firefighters, and EMS personnel, Magenta First Responder offers 20% off the first line and 50% off up to five additional voice lines. For example, a family of four will pay $25 per line for the Magenta First Responder plan with autopay, which is a savings of $60 per month. And just like the standard Magenta plan, taxes and fees are included in that price.

The Magenta First Responder plan includes unlimited talk, text, and smartphone data; SD video streaming; 3GB of 4G LTE mobile hotspot usage; 5GB of 4G data in Mexico and Canada; data and text usage abroad; 1 hour of in-flight Wi-Fi; and the Basic Netflix plan that offers streaming on 1 device at a time at SD quality.

Also available is the Magenta Plus First Responders plan. For $35 per line with a family of four with autopay, this plan includes everything included with the standard Magenta First Responder plan but adds HD video streaming, 20GB of 4G LTE usage, double data speeds when traveling abroad, and the Standard Netflix plan with streaming on devices at HD quality. It also includes unlimited in-flight Wi-Fi, Name ID, and Voicemail to text.

Pricing for these plans starts at $55 for a single line on Magenta First Responder, while Magenta Plus First Responder starts at $50 per line on a two-line family plan.

“At T-Mobile, we’re on an unrelenting mission to change wireless for good. With Magenta First Responder, we’ll put money right back in the pockets of our nation’s first responders and their families,” said T-Mobile CEO John Legere. “Magenta Military forced AT&T and Verizon to respond and altogether created a wave of change that we estimate saves military families more than a billion dollars every year. This is what we do. We spark a reaction. And Magenta First Responder will do the same.”

To go along with the Magenta First Responder plan, T-Mobile is also offering a special deal on Samsung smartphones. Customers on this plan can get 50% off “the latest Samsung devices”, including the Note 10 and Note 10+, for a limited time.

Customers interested in this deal will need to buy a new phone on an Equipment Installment Plan and have or activate a voice line on a qualified plan. The half-off discount for the new phone is applied via monthly bill credits.

Both the Magenta First Responder plan and the Samsung smartphone discount are available starting November 1st.
