Updated: T-Mobile Didn’t Change the $50 and $65 Simple Choice Prepaid Plans
Update: The change on the $50 and the $65 Simple Choice Prepaid plans seem to be a mistake of someone who moderate T-Mobile’s website as both plans have been returned to the previous stage. The $50 plan still includes 2GB of data and the $65 plan 6GB of data. Everything remains the same as previously.
Original: After discontinuing the $95 plan with unlimited un-throttled 4G LTE data couple of weeks ago, T-Mobile changes Simple Choice Prepaid plans ones again. This time, carrier has added more data to $50 plan while amount of data offered on the $65 Simple Choice Prepaid plan has been decreased. The $50 plan now includes 3GB of high speed data instead of previous 2GB. The $65 plan has less data, 5GB of high speed data instead of previous 6GB.
T-Mobile Simple Choice Prepaid Plans
After the latest change, customers can choose from the following T-Mobile Simple Choice Prepaid plans:
- $50 plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 3 GB of 4G LTE data (was 2GB)
- $65 plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 5 GB of 4G LTE data (was 6GB)
- $80 plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 10 GB of 4G LTE data
Previously, Simple Choice Prepaid plans starting with 6GB of data were including free compressed video streaming with Binge On. However, since change obviously has only just happened and website hasn’t been fully updated yet, it’s unclear which plans now include free video streaming. All plans, however, include free music streaming with Music Freedom. In addition, plans can be used in Mexico and Canada just like they are used in the U.S..
T-Mobile previously announced the new ‘T-Mobile ONE’ plan for postpaid users (launched on postpaid on September 6) and said that the plan would be added for prepaid customers too, eventually. The new T-Mobile ONE plan is available for $70 per month and includes unlimited talk, messaging and data in the US, Canada and Mexico and unlimited international texting to over 140 countries. Video streaming on this plan is limited to 480p and mobile hotspot speeds are reduced to 2G. If customers want access to high definition video streaming and unthrottled hotspot, they can add it for $25 per month per line and for $15 per 5 GB, respectively.
At first, the new T-Mobile ONE plan was meant to replace all Simple Choice plans but since customers were unhappy about it, T-Mobile decided to replace only the $95 plan. On prepaid, the $95 plan has been discontinued two weeks ago but instead of replacing the $95 plan with new plan, T-Mobile has altered existing options. Since T-Mobile has announced that a version of a new plan is coming to prepaid Simple Choice plans, the plan will launch but obviously a little bit later.
