TmoNews was the first to reveal the sad news disclosing that the program will no longer be available on new activations starting May 7th. As for those who signed up on or before May 6th, Free Data for Life is still available as long as they own the tablet they signed up for it.
Currently, there's no word on why T-Mobile put a stop to this program. TmoNews has also reached out to the carrier for more information but they have not yet responded to the request. The company, however, has mentioned that customers can still enjoy 2 GB of LTE data on their tablet for $20 a month with autopay.
Truthfully, 200 MB of data is barely enough; especially with the way we browse websites and interact on social media today. But if anything, that free data would have been a big help for emergency situations. If you're among those who enrolled early or are still enrolled in the program, nothing changes with your Free Data for Life arrangement.
