T-Mobile Offers Double Data for $50/month Plan

t-mobile-double-data-offer
A source on HowardForums shared information regarding T-Mobile's new plan to offer a 10GB data plan for $50 per month.

According to MagnumGourmet, the double data offer will be available to new customers who sign up for a plan. For only $50 per month, the customers will be able to get double data. Normally, the plan includes only 5GB of 4G LTE data. With the new double data offer, the allotment has been doubled to 10GB. Apart from data, the plan includes unlimited talk and text.

If you are interested, you can head over to a nearby T-Mobile retail store and activate a $60 10GB plan. This will entitle you to save $10 per month.

The double data offer is available for a limited time only and may be subject to change. A new activation is required along with purchasing a SIM starter kit. Taxes and fees are not yet included in the cost per month. The customer must be active and in good standing on the 10GB plan. The double data offer cannot be combined with other offers.

  1. Taxes and fees vary greatly with location. I have heard 7-22%

    1. Target doesn't charge tax in quite a few states when you buy your refills online. They even have 10% off sales every once in a while.

  2. This means that GoPhone will be getting more data allotment very soon. I love when T-Mobile puts the pressure on the other carriers.

    1. I would love it if the $30 gophone plan got more than 100 MB of data.

    2. T-Mobile puts pressure on Sprint, pretty much. It doesn't meet the needs of most cell carrier customers, and doesn't run in the same leagues with Verizon and AT&T.

      The real "price war" is between Verizon and AT&T (and their divisions and MVNOs), the only networks that meet the needs of two-thirds of cell customers in the US.

  3. I dont loke tmobile because their coverage is still weaker than Verizon and AT&T but their price is already over priced.

    1. I agree. Verizon is overpriced for what you get.

    2. Verizon is still hugely better than T-Mobile, network-wise. With Verizon, you pay for what you get.

  4. Promotional means marketing

  5. At least T mobile is good for something!! Coverage stinks; they'll need all the coverage help they can get this year.

      Exactly. The much better networks provide a better deal.

    2. You will get 8 gb for 45 dollars with total wireless

    3. You will get cheated with total wireless and will lose a valuable chunk of your time trying in vain to set it right with their malicious customer service circus.

  8. No T-mobile signal indoors at my home or office.

  9. "...For only $50 per month..."

    Christine, this deal isn't that remarkable. When you put "only" in lines like this, it looks like you are trying to sell it for T-Mobile, and not report prepaid phone news in an unbiased fashion.

    1. I noticed this too. At first, I thought "only" here could have been a relative term comparing prices for tier 1 (MNO) prepaid carriers, but then I looked at the phrasing without "only" and you don't lose anything in the meaning; you gain some objectivity (perceived or actual.) So I second your point.

      That being said, I consider PPPN one of the more objective blogs out there. I see sites fawning over T-Mobile, reporting positives way more than negatives, and "co-incidentally" a lot of them have an affiliate relationship with T-Mobile. Since I don't see a link to a T-Mobile site within this article, I can only surmise that PPPN doesn't have such a relationship, or they are at least objective about it.

  10. A little off topic, but anyone else notice how T-Mobile and others have been demphasizing tethering availability? T-Mobile Prepaid removed mention of it in their plan description months ago. GoPhone has always obscured it. Verizon Prepaid and GoSmart removed it recently. Though it is still part of their plans' features as far as I can tell ... for now.

    1. Of course they are doing this. They do not want to give/ show people the options that are opening up with the BIG Four now allowing tethering. example: Like Getting rid of Home broadband via the cable company's service. i plan to use these changing in mobile broadband for leverage in getting my cable company to seriously cut my monthly price on my home broadband.

    2. I can understand doing so for unlimited plans, but for limited data plans it's stupid, unless said UDPs come with unlimited 2G tethering. Advertising tethering on a limited data plan is to the prepaid carriers' benefit--the customer will run out of data sooner! And that increases the likelihood of them buying add-on data.

  11. Starting today, you can get the 3 lines of T-Mobile 1 unlimited everything for "only" $100, combined with 2 free Samsung Galaxy S7 phones when you switch.

    1. Thanks for advertising a postpaid offer.

    2. Thanks for bringing this up, I was also wondering about that deal.

      I was drawn to prepaid years ago for two reasons: no contracts, and better pricing. Didn't TMO ditch contracts a few years back? I'm currently paying $30 a month on Puppy for 1200/unlimited/1GB. Seems like the TMO offer would be $33.33. They also have something called Kickback, which would rebate $10 if I stay under 2GB. (really using about 500MB/mo now, so seems easy)

      So maybe I would end up paying $23.33? I think they also don't charge taxes or other fees. And they also include international calls/texts/data, so i could head to Canada without worrying about service there. I do have to find two friends to drag into this.

      Does TMO still do that wifi calling? I have been looking at Google Fi and Republic Wireless, but not moved forward due to having to buy a phone that works with them. The TMO deal seems to beat the price of both of those.

      Hmmm, I hadn't heard about the free Samsung phones. And my good friend is a loyal TMO customer, so I'm somewhat aware of coverage issues with TMO.

    3. You could get more (unl./unl./2gb) for your $30/mo. with boom! (boom.us) vs. puppy if you need it. No additional tax or fees, includes tethering & postpaid network roaming.

      Delete
    4. No contracts. No extra taxes and fees. Kickback is available, but you would lose the free Galaxy S7 offer. WiFi calling works. This is better than any prepaid deal. 3 unlimited on Cricket costs $150 and you sure won't get two free S7 phones.

      Delete
    5. It would be better to just skip the Kickback X 2 and sell the two Galaxies.
      Or get the plan without any Galaxies and plan on Kickback X 3, or $70/month.
      You can't beat that deal in prepaid X 3 either. Plus you get data roaming and the other benefits of Tmo 1.

    6. Read the fine print on the Samsung phone deal. You have to trade in a phone. Cheapest would be iPhone 6 or Samsung S6. Still good deal, but the S7 is not free.

    7. Hi, I’m the anonymous from 2:58 again: thanks for the replies, I’m still looking into this.

      I don’t know much about Boom, but will look at them. I guess I’m more interested in a price point closer to $20 than having more data. Currently I don’t really need it. It was years ago that I switched from Verizon to PagePlus/KittyWireless. I cut my bill then, but it hasn’t budged from ~$30 since.

      5:04PM anonymous: lots of fine print at TMO site, a struggle to get past the marketing. But what I think I read is that you won’t get Kickback on the third line, since it is free. This could work OK in my case, since my wife & I could have the paid lines, use less than 2GB and get Kickback, and my son could go crazy on the unlimited data. (I thought I saw something about adding tablet plan for $10, which would also be eligible for kickback)

      6:40PM: ah, thanks for that tidbit. I do have some old phones, but suspect the trade-in on a Nokia 530 wouldn’t amount to much. I haven’t had a premium phone since my Razr. I think I would be happy with a Moto G4 Play, suspect they might drop below their recent $100 sale price soon.

      However, initial response is that the rest of the family isn’t too hot about the idea. (site won't allow reply to thread, so this is going in as a new reply)

    8. With Kickback X2, it's like paying $25 each for Unlim TnT w/2GB fast data, plus $30 for Unlimited everything.
      Nobody else can touch this, esp. and you get data roaming on AT&T.
      Moto G5 plus with T-Mo bands 12 and 66 would get you coverage on the new AWS3 band they are deploying now.

    9. Any link to this offer?

      Delete
    10. Anon 11:03: if you just hit t-mobile.com it should be highlighted on their home page. Apparently the offer can end at anytime (I had thought it was all month, but no).

      I stopped by a corporate TMO store yesterday. Long wait, but they seemed competent. He swore that my bill would be exactly $100 for the 3 lines, no taxes or extras. I'm somewhat amazed that TMO is willing to cover about $15 of taxes, 911 fees, etc for this deal. He also agreed that I could only get Kickback on the 2 paid lines.

      Slight downside is that I would need to buy SIMs at $25 each. I live rural, their coverage map says 2-Fair for my farm, so maybe not indoors. But the sales rep said I could get a free hotspot ($20 deposit) that would provide cell service near the house using my DSL.

      Unfortunately, I probably won't proceed due to low interest from the other two lines. (also I never like "do it today or else" deals)

      Sorry if this is off-topic as not prepaid service. Thanks to Dennis et al for the great website.

    11. Thanks for the link Dennis. Do you see other advantages to prepaid (beyond costs & contract issues?). I'm looking at that link and it seems like $40/month is the cheapest prepaid plan that would work for me. Or I could get this non-prepaid offer, pay either $24 or $34 per month, not have a contract.
      -John

      PS - and I do remember talking to Verizon customer service ~15 years back, when I asked why I shouldn't just switch to a prepaid plan: "what, are you a drug dealer? Keep paying us $75/month (voice only, texts 25 cents a minute) and be an upstanding citizen" :-)

  12. I added a third T-Mobile line. I activated kickback via my T-Mobile.

  13. If you have a business license and email account, you can get a $20 discount on your business phone line with Tmobile One, $50/month. You can add a personal Tmo One line for only $30, $80 for both lines. Normal benefits apply.

    1. If you have a business license and email account, you can get more for less from a reseller.

    2. You mean one like 35orless or Harbor Mobile? I can't trust my business line to dishonest resellers who are likely to be dumped by the carrier.
