New T-Mobile Prepaid Plans
New plans that carrier has launched are $45 and $55 Simply Prepaid plans with 4GB and 6GB of LTE data, respectively. Also, it added prepaid version of the $75 ‘T-Mobile ONE’ plan. This plan was initially launched on postpaid six months ago. These three new plans are the only monthly plans available for T-Mobile customers from now on. All others are discontinued and therefore no longer offered to new customers. Existing customers with old Simply Prepaid and Simple Choice Prepaid plans are grandfathered and can keep them as long as they want to.
In addition to new plans, customers can choose from a $3/month “Pay As You Go” option that includes 30 minutes of talk or texts. Additional minute or text is available for 10¢ per each.
New T-Mobile monthly plans are:
- $3 Pay As You Go plan – includes 30 minutes or texts; additional minute or text is 10¢ per each.
- $45 Simply Prepaid plan – unlimited talk, text and data with the first 4 GB at high speed, 50 MB roaming

All plans come with Data Maximizer that streams videos at up to 1.5Mbps (480p). However, only on the $45 and $55, it can be disabled. On the $75 plan, it’s always on. Plans also come with hotspot. On the Simply Prepaid plans, high speed data can be used for hotspot; on $75 plan hotspot data is 3G. Customers can purchase HD video pass for 24 hours for $3 but it can’t be used for mobile hotspot.
All three plans come with Wi-Fi Calling and Music Unlimited that streams music without counting against plans’ high speed data. In addition, data speeds on all plans after using 30 GB/month may be slowed down due to prioritization.

Roaming in Mexico and Canada that’s free for the $75 T-Mobile ONE Prepaid plan users, costs $5 for those who want to add it on the $45 and $55 plan.
