web team posted new pricing plans on the wireless carrier's website today, including an unlimited talk, text, and data plan that runs $70 per month. Even better, the plan doesn't require a two-year service agreement; there's no annual contract to sign
, so subscribers are free to leave whenever they wish without incurring an early termination fee.
The $70 plan also includes up to 500MB of data for Smartphone Mobile HotSpot, though if you need more than that, there are other options available for more tethering.
T-Mobile's been making a push to re-invent itself
as the "un-carrier" as it attempts to compete with Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. Part of that entails rolling out simplified plans. Towards that end, T-Mobile lists two more plans with unlimited talk and text: $50/month for 500MB of high-speed data or $60/month for 2GB.
To ago along with these plans, T-Mobile is selling unsubsidized phones that can either be paid in full or billed monthly. For example, the first phone that pops up after picking a plan is the Samsung Galaxy S II in white. Subscribers can choose to pay $413.99 to buy the phone outright, or be billed $16 per month for two years with a $29.99 down payment, which also works out to $413.99.
There are less expensive options starting at $48. In addition, the general consensus is that T-Mobile will soon announce the availability of Apple's iPhone on its network.
