T-Mobile's $30 prepaid unlimited data and text plan will be exclusively offered by Walmart
Starting on October 16th, T-Mobile’s brand new $30 unlimited web and text monthly 4G prepaid service plan will go live for the taking. Not only that, but there is an additional 100 minutes of talk thrown in with the plan to provide customers yet another outlet to communicate – albeit, there’s a 10 cents per minute surcharge after the first 100 minutes. Of course, you get 4G speeds with the first 5GB of data, but then after that, things will be throttled down. Nevertheless, this is one plan that’s sure to offer customers a whole lot of value.
Now don’t go running into your local store on the 16th to sign up for this wicked prepaid plan, but rather, retail giant Walmart has nabbed an exclusive to sell it in-stores. Meaning, you can head into any of Walmart’s 2,200 stores nationally, or online, to sign up. Oh yeah, you can also sign up through T-Mobile’s web site too.
With the upcoming availability of the new plan, Walmart is increasing its affordable T-Mobile phones to six, which includes the addition of Walmart’s first 4G prepaid handset. However, it wasn’t explicitly stated in their press release as to what is the device. Still, there's no question that this is an aggressive offer from the carrier that's sure to raise some eyes.

my dream plan! finally, someone is listening.. unlimited data and text with just a few minutes for calling. wait.. does this mean T-mo has been watching me champion this style plan on PA for a while? big brotha is watching me!!! lol
$30 bux is a heck of a deal for that. Heck you cant even get unlimited data on an existing plan on ATT or VZW for that..lol.

If it was 150-200 min, then they got a steal of a deal. I guess with the unlimited texting it evens it out.

Well, if you use 200 minutes, at 10 cents per minute overate you've got what you're looking for for only $40. On those months you use less, you pay less. Seems like a solid plan.

This is gold t mobile is attempting a mobile coup. I'll get this asap then with Google voice I'll make all my calls and 5gb of data is perfect. With this plan I'll upgrade my device when every new Samsung galaxy and nexus phone launches.

Now we just need to see what phones they will have. That's an awesome deal, but i just don't want a low-end piece of crap phone like every other prepaid phone.

You can use any unlocked gsm phone, even the high end androids. Hell, even unlocked iphone should work.

I hope that there's a version of this plan with more than 100 minutes.

I dont know about virgin, but tmobile is gsm. So the phone selection is limitless.
this is a killer deal, but tmobile has horrible reception in my city.

Sounds like a good deal.....if your one of the lucky few that happen to live within the 500 or 600 sq. feet that t-mobile covers in the US. I'll stick with Verizon.
