T-Mobile announced its plan to replace its postpaid plans with the new T-Mobile ONE, its customers responded negatively prompting the carrier to change their tactic with the new postpaid plan. Instead of replacing the plans, T-Mo announced that the only plan that would be changed (for the meantime) would be the $95 postpaid plan.
A few days after the announcement was made, T-Mobile's $95 Simple Choice Prepaid plan looks to have been removed from the options under T-Mobile's prepaid plan offerings. This is the same plan that offered unlimited talk, text as well as 14GB of un-throttled 4G LTE data usage. The plan also came with Music Freedom, Binge On, and coverage in Mexico and Canada.
Now that the plan has been removed, there are many who speculate that the carrier will be making T-Mobile ONE available for prepaid. The plan currently comes with unlimited talk, messaging and data in US, Canada and Mexico as well as unlimited texting to more than 140 countries. The plan also includes mobile hotspot speeds throttled to 2G and video streaming at 480p quality. All of this costs $70 per month. Customers may opt to add un-throttled hotspot for $15 for every 5GB and high definition video streaming for $25 per month per line.
In addition to the plan inclusions, customers may add additional lines on one T-Mobile ONE account. This will cost $70 (first line), $50 (second line), and $20 (third line and up). If more lines are needed (beyond eight), it may be added at $30 per month. A smartwatch or tablet may also be added on the plan for $5 and $20 per month, respectively.
While there's still no word on when T-Mobile ONE will be available for prepaid, customers may still continue to choose from one of the currently available Simple Choice Prepaid plans:
- $50 Simple Choice Prepaid Plan - comes with unlimited talk, text and data with first 2GB of 4G LTE data
- $65 Simple Choice Prepaid Plan - comes with unlimited talk, text and data with first 6GB of 4G LTE data
- $80 Simple Choice Prepaid Plan - comes with unlimited talk, text and data with first 10GB of 4G LTE data
