T-Mobile announces its new family plan: 4 lines, each with 6GB of 4G LTE data, priced at $120

As we told you they would, T-Mobile has announced today a new deal that will be available starting tomorrow, May 11th. A family of four can each receive a line with unlimited talk, text and data. Each line is entitled to 6GB of 4G LTE data. The price for the four lines is $120, which works out to $30 per member. If you need additional lines beyond four, each additional one is just $20.

Your data has the potential to last longer at T-Mobile thanks to Music Freedom, which streams music to you without employing any of your data. And with Binge On, you can stream video from a number of content providers without dipping into your personal data. Thanks to Data Stash, the data you pay for but don't use in any given month is banked for a 12-month rolling period. This gives you a year to consume what you paid for.

T-Mobile is also offering you a free Samsung Galaxy Grand, valued at $189.99, with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. After your purchase the Galaxy S7 or its "edgier" sibling, the nation's third largest carrier will send you a pre-paid card to use for your Galaxy Grand purchase.

Both the data plan and the BOGO will be available for both new and existing customers at T-Mobile locations for a limited time only.

Their special "family plan" has gotten considerably worse over the last 4 months. Unlimited-->10GB-->6GB.

Cute plan. I don't need to settle on my mobile service though.

A few months ago they came out with their unlimited family plan. In small print, they also came out with a 10gb per each line family plan, 4 lines for 120$, each additional is 20$. The trick was you had to call them to get the plan. This version doesn't seem to be as good, but it's a step in the right direction. Before i switched over 2 years ago i was paying 120$ for 2gb a month. They constantly seem to be increasing service without increasing price.

t mobile will never show you the real numbers. the paid rep is applying the 75% discount that applies to his/her bill. OK, I will take measly my $19.50 discount off.. so now I pay $205 for 30 gigs, no discounts for 4 lines, and have EXCELLENT coverage, and will never fall for the lollipops T mobile offers. Add your insurance, and equipment fees, and taxes to those 4 lines because believe me..about 1% goes in and buys 4 smartphones @ 650 each.

I'd hope I was being paid for my job. If you're referring to me getting paid to be on this website then your mistaken. If you want to add fees we can do that as well... 4 lines $120 Base plan 6 gbs(24 total) PLUS all of the uncarrier benefits(binge on etc)/Insurance 8-12 per line depending on package selected and phone we'll go with 12 equals total $46. We DO NOT have any smart phone mobile access fee or any of the fees you get with other carriers besides regular taxes(911, Telco, regulatory etc). Comes to $166 per month before taxes If you own the phones. You didn't include financing phones in your quote so I will not as well. We can throw in 30 dollars for taxes if you want which is dramatic and still only be at 196

i guess you dukes in here still living at home with mom and dad just don't get it! cheap is not necessarily the best answer. coverage, sending a text without a 20 minute delivery schedule, having coverage from Ft. Meyer to Miami. It's worth every $180 VZ gets from me for 30 gigs and 4 lines. It's worth it to me and that's all that matters. you will never please all you pa readers regardless.

Now I know you're full of it. Fort Myers to Miami is WELL covered, that is unless you're too cheap to travel Alligator Ally. You can pay $50 more per month but a $2 toll is too much for you? Enjoy your Tamiami Trail...

T-Mobile coverage is way too spotty (read:it sucks). Yes, yes, if you are in an area with great coverage and never go anywhere then yes, T-mobile IS great. However, for those of us that actually travel or commute or whatever, T-mobile is a last resort. Verizon and AT&T are still the two top tier coverage carriers, that's a fact that can't even be argued.

I travel pretty frequently with T-Mobile. Dead spots are getting fewer and farther between.

I don't get it: I pay this at Verizon, yet everyone calls them expensive, but they have the best coverage PERIOD! ‚Äč Verizon Wireless 110.50 DATA (30 gigs after 15% discount) 60.00 LINES 4 lines x $15 after $25 edge discount (phones paid in full) 16 TAXES $185.00 MONTHLY for 30 gigs of data and 4 lines. that t mobile offer isn't factoring in equipment cost, insurance or taxes--once they add that in, it's the same as any other carrier, give or take a few bucks

And you get unlimited video and music streaming? $170.50 before taxes by your own accounting is $50 more per month than the T-Mobile offer or $600 more per year. It's like getting yourself a FREE flagship phone every year.

No overage fees Music freedom Binge on No access fees That's the difference And here in Atlanta, Marietta & Smyrna I have 0 issues with coverage. Nor have I really when traveling to LA, NYC or a few places in Ohio.

You must not have been a math major. T-Mo charges $120 for 4 lines and that includes the voice & text use. You're paying $50.50 more than you would at TMO since your devices are paid for.

And he has an old discount plan that nobody can get. 30GB is currently $225 a month + line access fees (currently at $20 a month) at VZW. $305 a month for 4 lines compared to T-Mobile $120. It's not even remotely close.

You shouldn't incorporate your discount into your total price, it might not be available to everyone else. Because If that was the case I could apply my 75% discount to 120 and say I only pay 30 a month. for 4 lines.

185 > 120 Taxes vary. Hell people in OR and certain other states pay zero tax on stuff like that.
