T-Mobile Brings More Data to Simple Choice Plans, Adds Unlimited Stateside International Texting

Posted by · 15809 views · Translate

T-Mobile today announced upcoming changes to its Simple Choice plans that will bring more data and add unlimited stateside international texting. In addition, T-Mobile is also offering a new $80 tier which will give you Unlimited Data at LTE speeds with a 5GB allowance for tethering. T-Mobile has also expanded the list of countries if offers Global Text and Data for free on Simple Choice plans to 122 countries worldwide instead of 115.

Simple Choice customers still start with one line at $50 per month for unlimited data, talk and text on our nationwide network – but will now get a full 1GB of 4G LTE data and tethering – double the previous amounts. Customers can still add a second line for $30 per month and up to three additional lines for $10 per month. Those additional lines also get the extra 4G LTE data with these changes.

As before, Simple Choice customers can always add more 4G LTE data to each of their lines. They can opt for 3GB of 4G LTE data, including tethering, for an additional $10 a month per line (vs. 2.5 GB previously), or 5GB for an extra $20 a month per line. There is a new unlimited 4G LTE option, which now comes with a full 5 GB of tethering, double the previous amount, for an extra $30 per month (vs. an extra $20 previously).

Second, with the new global texting benefits from the U.S. now included in Simple Choice, T-Mobile is the only US wireless carrier to deliver unlimited international texting to virtually anywhere - now from the United States and over 120 countries and destinations around the world - at no extra charge. Unlike with competitors, there is no need to purchase an additional package or special plan to get unlimited global texting and data. It comes automatically with every Simple Choice plan.

"In the mobile age, wireless data caps and overage fees are just this side of extortion," said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. "Take the basic plans from the Big Two with ridiculously low data limits that hit you with fat overages each month. It's like getting your data from the neighborhood loan shark and paying 100 percent interest when the bill comes due. It's the classic shakedown."

These changes will take effect automatically on March 23. Those on the current unlimited 4G LTE plans will not automatically switch over, unless they would like to opt-in to pay $10 more for twice the tethering. Mike Sievert, T-Mobile's CMO, has given a full run-down on the changes, which you can read over here.

Anyone thinking of switching - think twice. At most places depending on building T-Mobile signals do not penetrate. I switched back to AT&T in less than a week. T-Mobile could not fix the issues. My colleague's wife suffering from cancer and he cannot take or receive emergency calls and is stuck with T- Mobile contract. So try if successful switch. No point in switching is signal is bad.
