Leaked Project Dark material reveals unlimited pay plans and Flex Pay for handsets
One of BGR's T-Mobile tipsters came through with a treasure trove of Project Dark information and screen shots. Part of this mysterious "game changing" plan is about selling voice service to customers with text and data being considered as add-ons. It looks like there are three levels of minutes available: 500 minutes, 1,000 minutes and Unlimited. You can then pay for Voice, Voice and Text, or Voice, Text and Web. There will be an "Even More" service plan that will require a 2 year contract that will give you the chance to buy a subsidized phone. The "Even More Plus" plan will not have a contract, but the phones will not be offered with a contract price. Instead, this is part of the new FlexPay system where expensive handsets are paid off monthly by the buyer. There is a lot more to Project Dark, including T-Mobile building out its' 3G line, certain handsets that will be coming to the carrier, uniforms for reps, and pricing info. As son as we get the rest of the story, you get the rest of the story.

not really, they just want half of the money upfront for devices you plan on billing to an account

wow, i guess i stand corrected on full retail billing, lol :). well, i gots my meeting on it in an hour so then i gets to see all the supercool details myself. i hope they redo the commission structure a long with this. we are already the lowest paid out of the top 4 and this is just going to hurt us with lower priced plans. being busier while making even less is not a win! :( oh well, heres to hope :)

In my area TMobile is already offering the installment pricing on handsets. It's with a two year agreement though and is based on the subsidized price of the handset, not the retail as some sites have indicated. I only paid $87 bucks for my TP2 and I'm on my second of 4 installments. It looks like though most folks have been choosing to for go the installments and paid for the device in full (2yr price that is). Not sure how this will change with project dark.
