T-Mobile Uncarrier next phase – Simple Starter $40 plan without overage fees to shame AT&T and Verizon
When T-Mobile was at the beginning of its UnCarrier road, feelings were mixed. On the one hand, there was a lot of excitement and curious anticipation. On the other, there was doubt and uncertainty. After all, no one ever tried anything like this before. Now, over a year after the first phase of the UnCarrier project went live, it’s clear that the idea was brilliant. Today, a new Simple Starter $40 Plan has been announced as a part of the Uncarrier revolution.
T-Mobile’s Simple Starter $40 Plan
Over the last 12 months, T-Mobile has been successively unveiling the stages of its initiative, and they are not done yet. A few days ago John Legere hinted that the next phase of UnCarrier project was about to be uncovered, and sure enough, earlier today T-Mobile announced its new Simple Starter $40 plan without overage fees. AT&T and Verizon – take a good look and learn.
T-Mobile’s new Simple Starter plan is aimed at cost-conscious customers who like to keep close control over their expenses. For $40 per month, the plan includes unlimited talk and text and 500 MB of data. The amount of data may not be overwhelming, but the best part of the new plan is that when you hit the cap, nothing happens. Unlike other carriers who charge horrendous sums for stepping over the threshold, T-Mobile doesn’t charge anything because no data overages.
Once you use up your 500 MB, you have two choices – you can either rely on Wi-Fi until the end of your billing cycle or buy more data. A 1-day data pass with 500 MB of data costs $5, and a 7-day data pass with 1 GB is priced at $10. Simple Starter plan can be combined with T-Mobile’s other offers such as early termination reimbursement or JUMP early upgrade program. Another good news is that there are no minimum agreement periods. You can stick with Simple Starter plan as long as you want going month-to-month and switch to other offers without any obligations whenever you wish.
As great as the deal is, there are some downsides too. For example, the Simple Starter plan doesn’t include international texting or roaming support. Also, if you are looking for a family plan, you should consider other options, since the plan is aimed at individual customers only.
