T-Mobile to say goodbye to myFaves

T-Mobile to say goodbye to myFaves
Thanks to its' new "Even More" plans which offer unlimited voice, texts and data, T-Mobile has decided to phase out the myFaves program. The myFaves plan allowed each T-Mobile customer to pick 5 phone numbers that the customer would get to call on an unlimited basis. The plan-based on Alltel's "My Circle"-proved so popular when it debuted in 2006 that other carriers copied it. Both Verizon and AT&T introduced calling circles with unlimited calling features, and Sprint now has "Any Mobile, Anytime" which allows for unlimited calls to any phone at anytime for a monthly charge with no restrictive calling circle.

"Our new Even More plans, which feature options for unlimited calling, text and data service, have taken the place of our myFaves unlimited calling feature," T-Mobile said in a statement. In October, the nation's fourth largest carrier started its' new plans. The "Even More Plus" has no contract and offers unlimited voice, data and text for $79.99 per month. The "Even More" plan requires a 2 year contract and in return, offers a subsidized phone. For $59.99, the carrier offers unlimited voice calls.

Those who currently use myFaves will still get support for it from T-Mobile. The carrier's portfolio of handsets will still include the myFaves home screen so that T-Mobile customers can connect quickly to them using voice, text or email.

I wonder if this will make VZW make some price changes. I think if all companies do, phones will be more expensive. If your not getting the money in one place you'll get it elsewhere.

dood, if you do the math, its still way cheaper over all. even if you just compare it to the plans it just replaced. compare it to verizon/att and its an even bigger savings. som, the coverage is on par with ATT.. so either both their coverages suck, or people are idiots on ATT cuz they are paying double for the same service that you get on Tmo for half :)

Nah, the wife has T-Mobile (still in Contract) and I have AT&T. She still gets super crappy coverage. I get perfect coverage. I've even given her unlocked phones (N95) and a Sony as well. T-Mobile sucks where I'm at, yet AT&T is great. T-Mobile still has a bit of catching up to do, yet their price plans are awesome.
