T-Mobile giving 55+ customers premium unlimited data and more features


A few days ago, T-Mobile revealed its newest plan called Magenta MAX. Now that the plan is finally available, the Un-Carrier announced that it will also be increasing the value for its 55+ customers on its Magenta Unlimited 55 plan. 

With today’s announcement, the plan now includes Netflix on Us for families and a MAX tier with unlimited Premium Data with no throttling. Soon, T-Mobile will be allowing its customers to add up to four lines instead of just two lines. 

Unlike its rivals, T-Mobile is offering its Unlimited 55 plans nationwide. This means that every individual above 55 years old can activate service under the Un-Carrier’s Unlimited 55 plans wherever they are in the US (including Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico). 

As explained by T-Mobile’s Chief Marketing Officer Matt Staneff, “Not everyone over 55 lives in Florida.” The executive also shared that they have released these newly redesigned unlimited plans to their 55+ customers throughout the country with features that meet their needs. 

And now that there is a growing need for Americans over 55 years old to rely on their smartphones, this opens the need for improved services. According to a study, this is the fastest growing group of mobile users who spend 30% more time on mobile than they did a year ago. 

If you are a customer who belongs to the 55+ age group, you can get two unlimited lines of Magenta Unlimited 55, two free smartphones with 24 monthly bill credits for just $70 per month with talk and text and unlimited data including 5G access under T-Mobile’s network.

    What if I don’t need 2 lines? It seems like none of the carriers care about you if you aren’t a couple/family.

    • the martian ambassador

      Well, at least they made the Magenta Unlimited plan more generous by adding Netflix Basic for single lines, and that is just $50.00 for one line.

      It’s 55 a month for one line with autopay. My mom has that plan

  • the martian ambassador

    I don’t really use that feature. For me, it’s more about a having a substantial hot spot allowance, and for tablet tethering when I travel. My current plan doesn’t cover Netflix, so that also makes this Max more appealing.

  • Eddie Vazquez

    The actual customer on Magenta 55+ , are gong to be0 upgraded automatically?

  • Bee Francis Lurie

    So I join in hopes of they will allow me to add my family at a later point in time for $45/line?

    Looks like Magenta Max 55+ is $90 for two lines ($45 each). Hopefully each additional line will be no more than $30 each (need two extras for the kids). Currently pay $120 plus tax for 4 voice lines (Essentials plan), a $10 digits line and a free tablet line, so about $149 a month. I can drop the digits line and only use the app on my work phone. Four voice lines using above assumptions would be only $2 more ($12 more after dropping the digits line), which would be more than made up by the free Netflix for 2+ lines ($14 credit/per month). Heck, would still be worth it at $35/additional line due to hot spot allowance and 5G/HD streaming. Wonder if my free tablet line would transfer over from the previous plan, but that would exceed the limit of 4 lines.

      You can always add a tablet line, even if you have the maximum number of phone lines. Not sure about whether the free tablet line would transfer. You might have to call about that.

      If digits is just another number one your phone, check out Google voice. That’s free

    Have a co worker that was able to get a 55+ plan @54 because she’s turning 55 this calendar year….

  • Bob B.

    Same here and I am not going to change a thing. We were also able to add a third line at one point when that option became available. My concern ? This plan came with lifetime pricing and we are not switching to any other 55+ plan without that guarantee. We do not need free Netflix.

    • Bob B.

      I will also say that the third line added $30 to the bill. So with autopay, we are paying $90 a month. Our son pays us $30 a month. We are all very happy with this arrangement. My wife and I recently bought 5G phones, so we are seeing 5G here in parts of our area where T-Mo has it available.

  • Brian Hodges

    I’m also on the Unlimited 55+. Get a 5G-capable phone and 5G data is included automatically. In my area (Kansas) 5G is faster than WiFi!

  • the martian ambassador

    The additional 55+ lines are supposed to be available starting March 5.
