T-Mobile changing up prepaid plans this month

T-Mobile is always in the process of changing plans. On the prepaid end, they’ve left things mostly the same. Their pay-as-you-go plans have been the same for as long as I’ve edited this site. Since then they’ve added offerings to prepaid, including their lately Monthly 4G packages. Those could change on March 24th, when they will reportedly make a number of changes. On the prepaid end, that means a new set of monthly rate plans. The changes, though, are not very drastic. There is still the $70 option, which provides unlimited minutes and messaging, plus unlimited data with the first 5GB being at 4G speeds. Below that they will have two other tiers: $60 for unlimited talk and text, plus 2.5GB of data at 4G speeds. $50 for unlimited talk, text, and data, plus 500MB of data at 4G speeds. They’ll additionally offer a $30 plan that includes 1,500 minutes and messages, but you’ll have to ask for that; T-Mobile is not actively promoting it. In general T-Mobile is moving towards a no-contract format, so eventually all of their offerings will be prepaid in nature. But until then they’re leaving prepaid with a number of attractive offerings. If you can afford the right phone for you without a subsidy, it’s an option to consider. Via TmoNews.com.]]>

    I’m pursuing Prepaid Reviews of T-Mobile because of your recommendation of the Samsung t509 phone. However, this phone seems to be outdated, so I’m wondering if the “We help you decide – want a fancy phone” part of the website is also outdated. I need a better phone but w/ a cheaper plan, so seeing if I can purchase the phone elsewhere and carry to a cheaper plan. Don’t know if this Samsung t509 recommendation is outdated or not. Same question on the Motorola i455 thru Boost. Thanks for your help.
