T-Mobile has revised the prepaid portion of their web site today. The first thing you will see is higher prices on all prepaid phones. Some of the price increases are substantial. The Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G jumped from $179.99 to $290!
The other changes involve T-Mobile's prepaid plan lineup. The plan changes are mostly positive and are in line with the leaks we reported on last week.
Here's what's changed and what hasn't:
- $70 Unlimited Monthly no changes, still includes unlimited, un-throttled data
- $60 Unlimited Monthly - 4G data before throttling increased from 2 GB to 2.5 GB.
- $50 Unlimited Monthly - 4G data before throttling increased from 100 MB to 500 MB.
- $30 1500 minutes Monthly - no plan changes, but only available at T-Mobile stores, not online
- $30 100 minutes, 5 GB Monthly - no plan changes, only available online or at Walmart
- $1 Pay by the Day - discontinued, current customers are grandfathered.
- Web Guard - is now opt-in rather than the default.
- Black Berry Internet Service which was is a $10 add-on, is now available at no charge on monthly plans priced at $50 or more. It's still available as a $10/month add-on to the $30 5GB plan.
- $10/month Unlimited International Talk & Text can be added to monthly plans priced at $50 or more
