new unlimited plans last month, T-Mobile
plans to quietly
phase out the use of its myFaves calling feature. Similar to other calling
circles from other networks, myFaves allows unlimited calling to any five
numbers regardless of what network the users are on. T-Mobile doesn’t plan to
drop support for customers who already use the feature.
In a statement provided to FierceWireless
T-Mobile said: "Our new Even More plans, which feature options
for unlimited calling, text and data service, have taken the place of our
myFaves unlimited calling feature…. We continue to offer the myFaves home
screen, at no additional charge, across our broad portfolio of phones as a way
for customers to easily connect with their Fave Five through voice, text and
email. And customers currently subscribing to the myFaves unlimited
calling feature canchoose to continue to benefit from that plan."
T-Mobile introduced myFaves in 2006 in response to Alltel's
My Circle calling plans. Verizon
have introduced similar calling circles with unlimited calling to a specified
number of people. Sprint
recently introduced a new Any Mobile, Anytime offering which provides unlimited
calling to any mobile number regardless of network.
As you may recall, the Even More Plus plans are no-contract
plans that offer offer free nights, weekends, and T-Mobile to T-Mobile calling
as well as options to get unlimited voice, text, and browsing. The Even More
plans require a two-year agreement but offer a phone subsidy. Even More
unlimited talk plans start at $59.99.
