FlexPay plug getting pulled by T-Mobile in December; carrier offers grandfathered postpaid plan to members
A leaked internal memo obtained by TmoNews says that T-Mobile will be pulling the plug on the plan as soon as December. In order to get current members to migrate, T-Mobile is offering FlexPay account holders who move to a Postpaid account, the right to keep their same rate plan, migrate over without signing a contract or paying more money. The customer can decide to change to a Classic or Value plan, but is not required to do so.

That sounds like a pretty cool program but I thouht you could buy a phone at full price at any time and not have to be in a contract an any carrier.

only with prepaid. T-Mobile though will not require you to buy a data plan if you buy a phone at the retail price (even over time on value plans) The other big three will require a contract for sure no matter what you do without discounts. (im not 100% sure on this with sprint)

This is good news for flex-pay people. According to this article, flex-pay people have bad credit and it's a way for them to get service. So now TMo is just incorporating them directly into the regular post-paid service with no penalties. It just stinx for new people with bad credit, but current subs are making out.

This was such a waste of a program anyway. Somehow they act like prepaid plans are hard to find or something...
