T-Mobile to refresh all rate plans on May 22nd
We knew T-Mobile was going to bring some changes to its plans on May 22nd, but what about a refresh to all of its rate plans? That’s exactly what’s about to happen, according to screenshots obtained by carrier centric blog TMoNews. Similarly to the expected new Family plans, the revamped Individual plans will come in three varieties:

-    500 minutes for $39.99 for just talk, add $10 for Talk + Text, and bump up an additional fee for each step starting from 200MB, 2GB, 5GB, and ending with 10GB, with the latter costing you a hefty $109.99 a month.
-    1000 minutes for $49.99 for talk, but if you opt to go with this option, you won’t be able to add text or data as those automatically take you to Unlimited.
-    Unlimited can cost as low as $59.99 for Talk and Text.  For adding data you have the options of 200MB, 2GB, 5GB or 10GB, with the latter setting you back $119.99 per month.

In addition, Even More Plus plans will be modified and renamed to Even More Value or Even More Plus Contract, both carrying a two-year carrier tie, but with no discount on devices. Adding a new line to plans will also become cheaper at $30 for unlimited plans and $10 for the rest. Just recently, we reported that in addition to the Individual and Family plans, Big Magenta will re-introduce unlimited pre-paid plans on May 22nd. Check out the screenshots, courtesy of TMoNews below, for all the numbers to make up your mind and don’t forget to compare the T-Mobile plans with what the carrier offers today, detailed in our dedicated Plans tab!

Which doesn't include Even More Plus plans right now. Hope you get this updated after May 22nd.

Shame Even More Plus is going back as a contract plan - part of the advantage of it is you could keep your phone and switch to it if there wasn't a phone at the time you wanted to switch to, and wait and then switch back to even more. Also, possibly other, like ourselves, are hanging out there in non-contract world waiting to find out if this t-mobile/AT&T deal will happen or not before going back on contract. It would be easier to accept going back on contract if there was an associated price reduction.

This is great! more options means you pay for the service you use. Most people will be saving money especially the unlimited family users.

Technically the EM+ plans are still there.. and untouched. They just are trying to phase them out. They are going to contract plans, and "monthly" plans which is a great rebranding of the prepay with unlimited data on most every option.

Also, if you look at the pix the secondary line can now choose 500 mins or unl on unl family plans. it used to be 300. So you get more for the money.

The new plans are cheaper and they offer way more variants on data so you can customize your plan to your usage and save even more. Lets just hope Tmobile remembers to ADVERTISE them this time..
