T-Mobile UK: free unlimited data; HTC Sensation and Flyer coming soon

A few months ago, T-Mobile customers were furious when the company drastically reduced its fair usage policy on handset data packages, from 1GB or 3GB, down to a feeble 500MB (although existing customers were later exempted from this decision following a wave of negative publicity).

Perhaps in further response to customer feedback, T-Mobile has announced a new unlimited data promotion.  In their words, the Truly Unlimited package “has been designed to allow customers to browse, stream, email and download their favourite content to their heart’s content, without the need to monitor their usage”. Any new customer who signs up to a 24-month contract on a price plan of £25.54 (around $41) or more between now and September 30th will get the Truly Unlimited data package added to their account free for the full two years of their contract. Existing customers can also get in on the action by adding Truly Unlimited to their current packages for £5.10 (just over $8) per month before 30 September.

In other T-Mobile UK news, Coolsmartphone reports that the HTC Flyer – the 7” Android 2.3 tablet with a 1.5GHz processor and handwriting support – is due to arrive later this month.  Also due in July is the HTC Sensation, with a huge 4.3” inch screen, dual core processor and also running Android 2.3. The Sensation was previously a Vodafone UK exclusive, but no word yet on T-Mo pricing for it or the Flyer.

Finally, Coolsmartphone also reports that lovers of T-Mobile’s ‘Night In’ promotion will be disappointed, as the company has apparently killed it off. Customers could pick up a DVD from Blockbuster, along with popcorn, sweets, and a bottle of cola for £5 ($8), but now that deal is no more. Tragic. Still, while we mourn that loss, there’s plenty to celebrate for T-Mo UK customers, with unlimited browsing and streaming available now, and those groovy HTC devices on the horizon.
