T-Mobile contract-free plans go live for new customers
T-Mobile has made its new "UnCarrier" contract-free prices official in the United States. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281765==http://www.t-mobile.com/shop/plans/individual-plans.aspx" rel='nofollow'>new plans</a>, doing away with the two-year contracts and generally streamlining prices for all future customers, has been unveiled just days before the carrier was due to host a special event, where it is still expected to turn on its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281766==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/18/software.update.pushed.to.galaxy.note.ii.enables.l te/" rel='nofollow'>4G LTE</a> network. <br />
<br />
The new plans start from $50 per month for one phone, which comes complete with unlimited calls, unlimited texts, and 500MB of tethering-enabled data allowance. Extending it to 2GB of data costs an extra $10, then a further $10 for every 2GB extra, with usage that goes past the allowance being throttled down to 2G speeds. <br />
<br />
Though not launched yet, an option to include unlimited data across 4G is also available, making the total plan cost $70 per month. While it is billed as unlimited, it only includes a 500MB limit for the Smartphone Mobile Hotspot service, however this can be extended at an extra charge. <br />
<br />
The new plan prices, now live, will not be the same as those offered <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281767==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/20/uncarrier.initiative.to.have.price.plans.differing .by.data/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">through resellers</a>, such as Best Buy. An earlier leak for plans through retailers shows all prices effectively increased by $10, but still offering the same services.
