Is T-Mobile's Project Black a $50 unlimited voice and data plan?
Whether it is called "Project Black" or Project Dark", T-Mobile is apparently working on an announcement that could rock the boat in the cellular world. Part of the makeover is...a makeover. T-Mobile employees will be wearing black tops and grey pants while selling you a phone. And the lineup of devices will include the BlackBerry Bold2 9700, the Maemo powered Nokia N900, and one other Nokia N-series handset. So far, so good. Here is the kicker, Based on information from a BGR tipster with connections to the carrier, T-Mobile will offer an unlimited plan that includes voice, data, MMS, SMS all for $50. Holy MetroPCS Batman! The plan is to be called "Everything Unlimited" which is about as truthful a title as you can conceive. The slogan will be "More for less". This could be a game changing event and if it happens, we wonder how many of the other guys will be making a beeline for their spreadsheets, calculators and pencils to see if they can match or beat the new rate. Of course, nothing has changed until we see the print on the paper announcing the new plan. Until then, we are all in the dark.

True, you get what you pay for. VZW FTW!

Well considering how high T Mobile ranked in JD Power with respect to coverage, this should attract many more customers. VZ uses the same data that they tout as being the best and T Mobile has for many quarters in the past has performed just as well as Verizon in coverage and customer service. VZ is great for rural areas which it reigns supreme but if you do not spend time in rural areas like myself and never plan on going, then T Mobile works well and have 3g coverage in most major cities that I frequent. In this case, you get what you pay for really does not apply. JD Power has T Mobile ranked just as high as VZ so I will believe their study over the VZ testmen.

are you sure they've rated the same for coverage nation wide? Link to this?

And when you do go to a rual area, most will call T-Mo customer service and whine and complain like a little baby about how "my service doesn't work... WHY AM I PAYING YOU SO... ummm... little? Why don't I get what I pay for... oh wait, I do, no rural coverage." So as long as you say that you won't complain about crappy service at a good price, then I am completely behind you for wanting a 50.00 unlimited plan.

I so agree with you. When your network has about 50 million less customers than Att and Verizon as well as customers who usually only talk and text and barely use data then for sure their network can handle what they have. Add about 20 million people who actually use the network for more than talk and see how fast it shuts down. Nothing against T Mobile but until they start to even come close to network capacity as the top 2 they should not even be included in the performance tests..

This is great if true. Competition is always a good thing for the consumer.

I really hope this is true. If they can pull this off their customer base will sky rocket! Goodbye, Boost Mobile! (and they were just getting started) Now if T-Mobile could just complete their potential merge with UK carrier, Orange, their coverage would also sky rocket. Lookout, Big Red and Big Blue!

I don't think T-Mo has the network capacity for something like this. It would be like the Boost Mobile all over again, text taking 5 days to be delivered, data speeds like 14.4 modem speeds... it'll be game changing alright.....
