T-Mobile announces new Value plans; to be available July 24
posted by Nick T. / Jul 20, 2011, 3:59 AM
Unlike the case was with the Even More Plus offerings, T-Mobile Value plans will be tied to a 2-year contract so bear that in mind if you are not much into commitment. However, the purchase of a brand new smartphone is not necessary – just bring your own handset and switch over to a Value plan of a caliber that suits you most. Nevertheless, if you have been thinking of getting a new phone anyway, Value plan users will be given the chance to grab a smartphone of their choice and pay it off without interest (down payment required).

It's hard to take them seriously when they keep trumpeting the "largest 4G network." That said, those after some nice prices. It'll be a shame when ATT takes over and true competition gets killed. However, I'm on Verizon, and my bill is nowhere near that high. With 3 smartphones, 1400 minutes shared, unlimited text and data, unlimited calling to 10 friends and family, the bill is only $160. Factor in my employer discount, and my total bill, even with full insurance on all three phones, is $175 per month. The best part of all, full LTE speed with no slowdown after 2GB. I am using 6+ GB every month on my phone alone. True, I don't have unlimited minutes, but with the 10 Friends and Family, it might as well be. I have never used more than 300 of the 1400 shared minutes.

@tedkord. I don't know when you made your contract with verizon, but family 1400 is 90 bucks plus 10 for one additional line. That is already 100. additional 90 bucks for internet. + txt = well over 220. employer discount is max of 15%. Your total is 160? I can't take your words. I used have 1400 family from 2004-2008. No price change so far I guess.

The next time you upgrade your phone you will lose your unlimited internet. I suggest you start slowing down on your interent usage. You will definitely have a higher bill than $200. I personally think that they should do like they do with the voice minutes and offer limits during the daytime and offer unlimited interent after a certain time and on the weekend.

@agamhonda That is not true. I upgraded my wife's line on Verizon to a Droid Charge 4g and Verizon grandfathered her plan in AFTER the new tiered plans started.

Damn, I am on Sprint, and inspite what people think and say, what one company do affects everybody in the long run( with Verizon leading the pack), it means sprint can up my price another $10 per month and we can't complaint, cause no one else to turn to for no data tier plans...damn you TMOBILE!!

In a year all of us T-Mobile customers may well be going to another carrier anyway. I would love to buy a Sensation 4g but could end up stuck on AT&T with just edge speeds. I will stay put with the plus plan I have with unlimited data as long as I can, and just be happy with my Vibrant running MIUI for now.
