T-Mobile Adds 2GB $45 Simple Starter Plan to Line-up

T-Mobile added a new option to its Simple Starter plan line-up today that quadruples the original plan’s data bucket from 500MB to 2GB of LTE data per month. The new plan is a limited time offer that runs $45 per month, which is just $5 more than the 500MB offering. So yes, for $5 more, you can get 2GB of data along with unlimited talk and text.

With the Simple Starter plan, there are no overages and no annual contracts.

The new plan is available September 3.  (more…)

T-Mobile Announces Simple Starter Plan, $40 for 500MB of Data and Unlimited Talk/Text

This morning, T-Mobile kicked off three days of new Uncarrier announcements by introducing their Simple Starter Plan. The new affordable plan runs just $40 and lands customers with unlimited talk and text, plus 500MB of 4G LTE data.
