Updated: Two T-Mobile Simple Choice Prepaid Plans Did Not Get Data Allotment Changes

Update 9/30/2016: T-Mobile either changed their minds, or more likely, some poor web designer screwed up. Yesterday the T-Mobile Simple Choice Plans Page showed the $50 plan has having 3 GB of LTE data, instead of the usual 2 GB and the $65 plan having 5 GB instead of 6 GB. Here's a screenshot of yesterday's version of the page from the Google Cache:

Today the same page (below) is back to showing the $50 plan as having 2 GB of LTE data and the $65 plan as having 6 GB just as it has since last November.
The bottom line is that what we reported yesterday apparently never happened and there have been no changes to T-Mobile's Simple Choice Prepaid plans.

Original 9/29/2016 post is below for posterity's sake:

A few weeks ago, T-Mobile announced that they would be discontinuing their $95 Simple Choice prepaid plan in lieu of a new T-Mobile ONE plan they wanted to launch for prepaid customers. Although the plan has already launched for postpaid subscribers, T-Mobile received complaints from prepaid users about this plan; especially since there were reports that the carrier was considering scrapping out all the Simple Choice Prepaid plans to replace with T-Mobile ONE. As a result, T-Mobile only discontinued the $95 plan.

Just after the plan was discontinued, T-Mobile made some changes to its Simple Choice Prepaid plan options again. This time around, T-Mobile made a couple of changes to two of its plans. The first change the carrier made is that the $50 plan now comes with more data. Instead of the original 2GB high speed data included on the plan, it now comes with 3GB of high speed data plus the same inclusions, unlimited talk and text.

While T-Mobile has increased data on the $50 plan, it also decreased the high speed data allotment on its $65 plan. Instead of 6GB, the plan now only includes 5GB of high speed data. And just like the original plan, it still comes with unlimited talk and text.

With these changes, T-Mobile's Simple Choice Prepaid Plans now range from the following options:
  • $50 Simple Choice Prepaid Plan - comes with unlimited talk, text and data with first 3GB of 4G LTE data
  • $65 Simple Choice Prepaid Plan - comes with unlimited talk, text and data with first 5GB of 4G LTE data
  • $80 Simple Choice Prepaid Plan - comes with unlimited talk, text and data with first 10GB of 4G LTE data
Each of these plans come with free music streaming through Music Freedom and may be used in Mexico and Canada. T-Mobile still has not updated information on video streaming through Binge On, especially since this was available on Simple Choice Prepaid plans starting from 6GB of data.

  3. The image is different than the text in the article. The image has $40/$50/$60 for 3/6/10 GB of data, respectively.

    1. The picture was taken from T-Mobile's Simple Choice Prepaid website. They haven't updated their pricing on the website yet.

    1. My apologies. Thank you for the clarification.

    2. Wouldn't it be less confusing if the graphic were for the plans the article is talking about?

      T-Mobile's "Simply Prepaid" vs "Simple Choice" sets of plans is confusing enough to begin with - there's no need for Prepaid Phone News to add to it.

  5. for a while tmo had the cost advantage, and the no coverage indoors disadvantage.
    now they even lost the cost advantage.

    why would anyone now stay with tmo?

    also what will happen to all the different mvnos that use tmo, will their rates go up as well?

  6. MetroPCS needs to update their plans, nobody is going to give up AT&T (Cricket) coverage to come to T-Mobile. They need to offer some new "Metro One" plan and get rid of buckets.

    MVNOs offering same plans at $25-$40 (ofcourse without roaming)

  8. I don't see these changes reflected on their website. They're showing $50, $65, $80 with 2GB, 6GB and 10GB data, respectively...

    1. You're right! It was there yesterday, you can see the 2 GB 5 GB here Simple Choice Prepaid Plans | Unlimited Talk, Text & Data $50/Mo in Google's cache.

      T-Mobile may have posted the changes in error and rolled them back. I will update the post, thanks for the heads up.
