T-Mobile will now pay you back $10 if you don't use much data


T-Mobile and Jonh Legere are at it again: the outspoken CEO has just made some big announcements on stage at CES 2017 around the next un-carrier initiative by the rapidly growing carrier.

We delve on this in more detail in other news, but yes: T-Mobile is axing all of its plans and leaves only T-Mobile One starting January 22nd.

You wanted simplicity? You've got it.

T-Mobile One is simple: unlimited data for $70 for a single line, $50 more for a second line, and $20 for next lines. If you have a family of four, it works out to just $40 a person, or a $160 total bill. And no, you don't need to pay any additional taxes or fees, it's all included.

Now, that's all good, but what about the people who use very little data and that are currently on some of T-Mobile's more affordable plans? After all, you can get a $50 plan these days and what if you don't need more?

Well, while it is true that T-Mobile will be killing that plan, it is also bringing a special condition it calls KickBack: if you use less than 2GB of data a month, T-Mobile will pay you back $10 each month. This brings down the $70 single-line fee with T-Mobile One to an even more manageable $60.

Cool, isn't it? Let's see how AT&T, Verizon Wireless and Sprint react to that.

Oh! that's not a woman. This is T-Mobile's CEO, Jonh Legere, and yes, it is Legere, not Lingerie.

T-mobile has a tendancy to all old plans to be grandfathered. In my case I am at $100 for 5 lines.. the new plan would jump my bill $80. So they better not change my plan.

his announcement included a statement that no current customer has to switch from their current plans... PA just frogot to include that.

Curious - are you counting taxes+fees in that $100? Because 5 lines on the new plan is $180 flat, but if they all use less than 2GB data then it's actually $130 flat with the additional credits.

Wait, does this only go for T-Mobile One? I'm guessing that it does.

Don't fall for it!!! Yes in urban areas coverage is good, but you'll regret your decision in any suburban and rural area.

I've got 8 on a T-Mobile getting 6GB HSD plan paying $27.27 per line after tax. I would say 1 to 3 of us use over 1Gb per month. The only way I would upgrade to the ONE plan is if that $10 credit was given per line and ultimately for the same price we are currently paying. We couldn't get the iPhone7 Black Friday deal because we weren't on the ONE plan. .. so I would assume any phone deals in the future will also require you be on the ONE plan.
