T-Mobile launches its new "no contract" phone plans

After hinting several months ago that the company would move to a no-contract business plan, T-Mobile has now launched its new mobile phone plans that offer customers a way to talk, text and use data for as much as they want for as low as $50 a month.

The new plans went live Sunday, with the $50 a month plan also including 500 MB of "high speed data" on T-Mobile's network. After that limit is reached, users will experience throttling on their data, unless they pay for more high speed data a month, up to 12 GB for $110 a month. There's also an option to get unlimited high speed data for $70 a month, but you have to pay extra for any mobile hotspot usage with that plan.

T-Mobile offers two Windows Phone 8-based smartphones, the Nokia Lumia 810 and the Windows Phone 8X from HTC. T-Mobile is also supposed to start selling the Nokia Lumia 521 as an exclusive at some point this year, but so far there's no specific word on when that smartphone will be launched. T-Mobile is scheduled to hold a press event Tuesday, where there are rumors that the carrier will announce that it will finally begin to start selling the iPhone under their new no-contract plans.

How does this make them seem NON-carrier like. This is the EXACT thing carriers do. Pay MORE for LESS. Before, you could get 500min+Unlimited txt/UNLIMITED 4G Data for $60/month, NO CONTRACT.

This is now saying its gonna cost $110 for the SAME THING (Although you are also getting unlimited minutes, which to me, isn't all that since I don't really use alot of minutes)

There is still pre-paid, the MetroPCS options once the merger is approved, and a new Pre-Paid low-cost option under a different brand. I will have to look it up.

Here is the link to the low-cost prepaid plans:

Go Smart will be the brand for cheaper pre-paid for 2G/3G service and likely has more limitations on it, but I think it is worth it for those who don't need a whole lot and want a smartphone without the cost. Prices are around $35-45 a month.

Monthly 4G directly from T-Mobile site is the prepaid plans for 4G access.

starting to hate all these cell stories... especially since this one is just screaming this should be on a cell phone site not neowin, and throwing a windows phone and iphone paragraph in there just to disguise it as for this site takes the cake....

This is plans for T-Mobiles United States based subsidiary, definitely not Israel, whom I would consider to be a completely different market (smaller). We should be comparing these plans to that of United States based Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T.

There are plenty of such plans all over in Europe as well.. It is the US which is locked behind thanks to the cronies carriers can afford to send to Capitol Hill... using our money.

Thats really crappy compared to the services offered overseas when traveling. Overseas services like vodafone or o2 offer pay as you go around 500 msgs (sometimes a promotional offer is unlimited) with 2gb data for $20. Its at least $6 to activate so you get around $14 talking time. and I barely talk to anyone, only emergency use.

500mb will be used up like its nothing for $50 with tmobile...

But think that's because you're only responsible for the outbound calls. Inbound calls are charged to the caller. I have T-Mobile contract but I pay $65 + tax(~$4.50) per month for the unlimited everything with no throttling. I just don't have SMH..

Is not the carriers racketeering in the US marvellous? /s

The site is called NeoWIN...

I am so jealous of this no-contract deal. I wish Sprint would stop being so crappy and improve themselves.

Somehow most articles on Neowin seem to be thinly veiled commercials for M$ / Windoze phones..

If you want Apple news, go to macrumors.com or appleinsider.com or macworld.com or 9to5mac.com. Go complain to them about covering Apple too much. Silly, isn't it. Neowin is fairly balanced compared to them, but it's still a Microsoft-focused website. This shouldn't be news to anyone.

Grow up and stop with the childish M$ and Windoze. It doesn't make you cool.
