We know there are a lot of changes on the way from the folks at T-Mobile, and today a few details on their new unlimited plans are starting to surface. With the MetroPCS merger still in works, T-Mobile is looking to make big changes. Below are the brand new “UNcarrier” unlimited talk/text plans coming soon to a 3rd party T-Mobile stand near you.
As mentioned above, these are the new unlimited classic plans T-Mobile will be offering at locations throughout the US that aren’t corporate stores. As in these will only be available from Target, Walmart, and other 3rd party brick and mortar locations. Then regular T-Mobile stores will offer something similar, as well as other options.
It seems T-Mobile is giving everyone unlimited talk and text, but not data. In this day and age we need less minutes and more data – I do at least. So while these deals will probably be excellent and great for some, others might be paying more for the same simply for the unlimited talk/text. Interestingly enough tethering is free for all data limits (except unlimited data) and the pricing isn’t too bad. Now we just need that 4G LTE to come faster.
Essentially all of T-Mobile’s new UNcarrier Classic Plans will have unlimited talk/text and come with 500MB of data for our smartphones. Then you can add 2GB at a time for just $10 and will go all the way to 12GB options before you pay big for truly unlimited data. If you aren’t paying attention all those include free tethering (except unlimited data) and if you remove tethering T-Mobile now will have an unlimited talk/text/data plan without tether options for just $90. That sure beats anything from the other big carriers currently available today.
This information is being sent to T-Mobile employees and 3rd party locations as we speak, and should be available come March 24th. Not all of the details are available yet, but we’ll know more soon. Some might love these options, and we have a feeling many won’t. What do you guys think?[via TmoNews]
