$50 unlimited plan from T-Mobila USA indeed real
Yesterday, we informed you of the speculations around the new unlimited call plan that T-Mobile USA is to test in San Francisco. It seems that the rumors have been confirmed and the No. 4 carrier in the U.S. is really offering a $50 per month unlimited call plan for its long-time customers. Under this promotion, there is also an option for a $135 credit, in case a customer switches from a rival carrier to T-Mobile USA.

According to UBS analyst, John Hodulik, T-Mobile will launch the plan nationwide in weeks, aiming at putting some pressure onto the postpaid market. It is also believed that this comes as an answer to Boost Mobile’s all-in mobile plan also for $50 a month in January, as analysts see T-Mobile USA to be mostly vulnerable to losing customers against Boost.

Did that say they will give a $135 credit if you switch from a different carrier? Like they will pay the ETF?

That's what it looks like... But the plan still falls quite short of the Boost Mobile plan unfortunately since it doesn't include texting, data or push-to-talk, and taxes are still extra.

plus, Boost is no contract. also for t-mobile you need to have services for 22 months the article at Reuters says to get the $50 unlimited plan with t-mobile.

I read on phonescoop where it says: "The $50 monthly plan will only be available to customers who've already had contracts for 22 months or longer.".... This makes it sound like you have to already be with the company to get it, so how would you get the credit for switching?? Seems they have some info to clear up.

it seems the $50 plan is for existing customers who have had service for 22 or more months the 135 credit seems to be a separate offer for new customers only getting there currently available plans
