T-Mobile No Longer Offers $95 Simple Choice Prepaid Plan
Less than a month ago, T-Mobile announced the ‘T-Mobile ONE’, a new plan for its postpaid customers that launched on September 6. Initially, the new plan was meant to replace all other postpaid plans but after people’s negative reaction, the carrier said that only the $95 postpaid plan would be replaced, at least for the time being. The same plan has been announced for prepaid customers too, but for ”later.” Maybe that’s why T-Mobile no longer offers $95 Simple Choice Prepaid plan.
The $95 Simple Choice Prepaid Plan used to offer unlimited talk, text and unlimited un-throttled 4G LTE data with 14 GB of mobile hotspot usage. Also, the plan offered coverage in Mexico and Canada, Music Freedom for unlimited music streaming without using plan’s data and Binge On for unlimited free video streaming at 480p (optional).
The new ‘T-Mobile ONE’ plan comes with unlimited talk, messaging and data in the US, Canada and Mexico and unlimited international texting to over 140 countries for $70 per month. Video streaming is limited to 480p and mobile hotspot speeds are throttled to 2G. T-Mobile customers can add high definition video streaming for $25 per month per line and unthrottled hotspot for $15 per 5 GB.
Also, customers can add additional lines on the same account. The first line is $70, the second is $50 per month and the third and up to eight lines is $20 per month. If customers need even more lines beyond eight, they will be available to add them for $30 per month. Also, they can add tablet to this plan for $20 per month and smartwatch for $5 per month for 2G data.
Simple Choice Prepaid Plans
T-Mobile is still offering three lower priced Simple Choice Prepaid plans that start at $50 per month:
- $50 plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 2 GB of 4G LTE data
- $65 plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 6 GB of 4G LTE data
- $80 plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 10 GB of 4G LTE data
All plans can be used in Mexico and Canada just like at home. Music streaming doesn’t count against plan’s data on all plans. Binge On, free video streaming at 480p, is available on $65 and higher and the $65/6GB and $80/10GB plans offer Data Stash, unused data rollover for up to a year.
Now that T-Mobile no longer offers $95 Simple Choice Prepaid plan, we can probably expect the T-Mobile ONE plan to also launch on prepaid soon. And hopefully, just like with postpaid, the carrier will continue to offer other Simple Choice Prepaid plans, at least for some time.
