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:
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
