T-Mobile-the-Uncarrier

T-Mobile is holding their UNcarrier event as I’m writing this article, but the folks over at Slashgear got their hands on an official press release announcing all of T-Mobile’s new products and services that will be revealed shortly.

Simple Choice Plan

The plan starts at $50 per month for 500MB of data, and customers can add a second line for $30 per month, with each additional line only costing $10 per month. You can bump up the data to 2GB for an extra $10 per month per line, and unlimited LTE is only $20 more per month per line. Plus, there are no contracts, making T-Mobile the first major carrier in the US to get rid of such a thing.

LTE Network

T-Mobile is starting a little late when it comes to LTE, but they’re set to launch their network in 7 markets, including: Baltimore, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Jose, and Washington DC. They expect it to reach 100 million Americans by mid-2013, and 200 million people by the end of 2013.

As they complete the merger with MetroPCS, T-Mobile will add 250M subscribers and more spectrum to help build out their network.

New Devices

For their new LTE network, T-Mobile will be launching the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Galaxy Note II, the Blackberry Z10, the HTC One, and the iPhone 5. They are also set to launch the Sonic 2.0 Mobile HotSpot for LTE.

These devices will sell for $99 upfront with no contract. You will, however, have to pay the $20 LTE fee for 24 months. You can leave the carrier whenever you want, whether you make 1 payment or 10, but you’ll be responsible for the cost of the phone then. You can also trade in old devices for credit. Once your phone is paid off (after the 24 months), they will unlock it for you.

The iPhone 5 will be available in mid-April and the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available May 1st.

    Yeah, its not the first time they’ve tried to shake up the mobile industry. Funny how they’re calling out At&t too with their plans…when I switched to At&t’s Mobile Data Share, it couldn’t be easier, everything is unlimited and we share 6GB of data. xx for the first phone and xx for each additional phone…seems simple to me.

    Their plans sound like they’re going to get more confusing, its xx amount if you have an LTE phone, then its xx if you have an older smartphone, plus this for each additional phone, etc.
