OP is back! See WIKI for relevant information.

Short: NEW Activations only.
Buy sim card + activation kit/code (required).
Activate online at t-mobile.com, choose $30 plan. Done.

Any unlocked GSM phone will work. Maybe others, YMMV. NO SPRINT/VERIZON (unless they are unlocked and accept SIM cards... typically "world phones"). Also no Blackberry.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

$30 per month—Unlimited web and text with 100 minutes talk
100 minutes talk | Unlimited text | First 5 GB at up to 4G speeds
This plan is only available for devices purchased from
Wal-Mart or devices activated on T-Mobile.com


SIZE=6]T-Mobile Prepaid (micro, standard and nano) sims [t-mobile.com] [/SIZE]
**THIS IS FOR NEW ACTIVATIONS ONLY** YMMV as existing customer.

This offer is only for NEW Customers.
If you are no longer tied to tmobile contract, To get around "new customer only" restriction, port your existing number to Google Voice $20 one time fees. Then get this new offer from t-mobile with new number. Then forward all calls from your Google Voice to your new t-mobile number. All these will be invisible to all your friends since they still call the old number, and you still get their calls on your mobile handset. This is seamless for making and receiving calls on Android. (For iPhone keep in mind this isn't fully seamless when making calls using the native phone app, texting, etc.)

To activate the new tmobile plan you can go to the following URL
Code:
http://www.t-mobile.com/shop/plans/ActivateCodes.aspx

When signing up online, specify that you need a new number. After you're done, call 877-789-3106 and tell them you want to transfer your number. The process will be much faster/smoother.

Running out of minutes?...
If you need more minutes you can use VOIP service
30 and 35MB per hour
use google voice via VOIP....

(Tip... when Activating, a single invalid Activation Code / SIM serial / IMEI serial may display all three as invalid. Enter 15 "1"s as your IMEI to get around having a valid IMEI.)

Will my phone work with 4G/3G?

AT&T branded (bought from AT&T or has logo on phone):
Quote :
Maybe T-Mobile's 3G/4G network requires the 1700 band in many areas, which means only 2G / EDGE speeds will work. But some areas are starting to get 3G on the 1900 band: http://www.phonearena.com/news/T-Mobile-turns-on-3G-coverage-for-unlocked-Apple-iPhone-models-in-some-areas_id24870

Tmobile:
Quote :
Yes Use any handset with 4G in the name if you are unsure. 3G handsets can be purchased on tmobile.com/prepaid like the Optimus T.
Where to buy a 4G/3G supported phone?

Just a Tmobile SIM card:
Quote :
YMMV... the T-mobile store will give you a card and activation kit for free. Or just buy online, currently on sale for only $0.99.
Quote :
Buy any Tmobile prepaid phone at a retailer ~$20 and activate online. Buy a SIM card from Tmobile.com for $8.
Craigslist or ebay. Find a Tmobile branded 4G handset like the Samsung Galaxy S 4G or MyTouch 4G.


Look here to see at supported phones: Phone Arena [phonearena.com]

Rule of thumb: If it's not sold by T-Mobile, it most likely will NOT support the 1700 band. The 1700 band is pretty rare in the rest of the world, so most phones simply just don't support it. Rare exceptions are phones like the Nokia N8, which is a pentband phone, that support the 1700 band but is not officially sold by T-Mobile. Another rare exception is the Motorola Atrix HD, which was sold on the AT&T Network but supports the 1700 band, including LTE.

VISUAL VOICE MAIL, CALL FORWARDING, AND YOUMAIL IS NOT AVAILABLE WITH T-MOBILE PREPAID. THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN GET IT TO WORK!!!!!

You can get free text transcriptions from google if you hook up google's voicemail to your number. You can also get rid of tmobile's voicemail app if you do that.

Free Nights? No
Free Weekends? No
Free Long Distance? Yes
Do remaining minutes rollover? No
Free Roaming? Yes, on voice and texts, no on data (regular T-Mobile plans roam on data, so data coverage will be poorer on this plan)
BingeOn? Yes, Data used by supported video services will NOT count against your high speed data: http://i.imgur.com/67hi7Fm.png http://i.imgur.com/RQx29kQ.png but data will be deducted from your 5GB until depleted. Once depleted you will still be able to stream videos at 480p without throttling. All your other data will be slowed down.

Which phones for tethering? Any rootable android phone OR Galaxy Nexus directly from Google Play Store support it natively without modification

SETUP YOUR GOOGLE VOICE w/SIPDROID FOR EASY FREE VOIP CALLING ON ICS/JB. THANKS TO microkelvin
Yes, you are right. It took me the whole night to figure it out. pbxes setup is very complicated. I dont want to get into it. Luckily that we just need to sign in once, setup the password for your username-200 extension and you are done.

Assume you are completely new to sipdroid/pbxes. First, install sipdroid app, create a brand new pbxes account with your google voice credentials. Then you are done. That very first step of 'creating a new pbxes account' will do all the dirty work for you. No need to do any further setup. Just write down your pbxes username (without -200) and password (which is your google voice password, generate a new application specific password if you use 2 factor authentication). Then you can safely remove sipdroid forever. No need to keep it or run it on the background anymore.

Next, go to pbxes.com website, sign in with your pbxes username (without -200), and the google voice account password. It sounds weird but it took me like an hour scratching my head to figure this out. Once you sign in, click on your personal info, go to extension setup, you will have your username-200 extension ready. Make sure to click on that username-200 extension and fill in your COMPLETELY NEW PASSWORD for that extension. Then apply/save. Done. This is a very important step that took me the whole night to figure out. I thought that username-200 should use your pbxes password by default, but no. It's not set until you manually enter a complete new password just for that. It sounds crazy but you must do this to get your pbxes account to work on any SIP app.

Thats it. Now you can load up your ICS Call/Internet call Settings (or any SIP app), fill in your username-200 (no pbxes.com), password (the crazy password that you just manually entered earlier, any other pbxes.com password or google voice password will not work), then the sip server is "pbxes.org". That's it. Leave everything else as default.

If you want to receive incoming call with your google voice account, make sure to tick that "Receive incoming calls". You can either set your phone to intercept your dial pad with either "Internet calling" or use it everytime.

Enjoy unlimited google voice calling/receiving without any 3rd party app running (if you use your ICS built in internet calling). Or you can use your favorite SIP app with those 3 credentials (username-200, password, server: pbxes.org).

Sorry, I forgot how (or if) I setup the ICS internet calling using 3g/4g as default. But as long as I select "internet calling" on my dialpad, it will use whatever faster speed (ie. Wifi if it's connected to wifi, 3g/4g if it's not connecting to wifi).

EDIT:

The title says "Walmart" in it, however this offer is for all "new customers" that activate a new line of service using a T-Mobile micro-sim card purchased from any retailer that sells this item. Purchased mine for $5.99 with an included $3.44 credit offer and activated the phone without a problem.

Well, this looks like it might not be the plan for me. I bought the SIM card, activated it, and put $30 on it, but three hours later my phone is still offline. Under available networks, I only see AT&T. Called up support, and their eventual resolution was to get my home address and said someone will check out the signal here.

I'm not in the middle of nowhere, I'm in a DC suburb just inside the beltway. Never had an issue getting Verizon or Sprint service in my house, but it's beginning to look like T-Mobile's network might not cover me.
Did you check your coverage map? There will a least give you an idea whats your coverage in your area. Also, did you try your service at other places? If you in a house, you might want to try going outside or at work since t-mobile service is spotty sometimes. hah

5GB is not enough for me, I use that in 10 days. I need at least 10GB's.
They offer a 10GB plan but a 2 year contract is required even if you bring your own phone which is stupid.
Why would I lock myself into a contract without getting the benefit of a subsidized phone?
I haven't heard of the 10GB plan anymore. They offer unlimited and like 3GB?

I'm probably wrong, but it sounds like a SIM card problem to me. Because you would still EDGE or GPRS at least.
I'm usually in "emergency calls only" mode. It definitely does something different with the SIM card in than without it, because I see T-Mobile in the APN list, and the battery drains much quicker than without the SIM card. I'll try it while I'm out this evening. If it can't pick up service anywhere, then there's something else weird going on.

Couple of noob questions.
1. What is the difference between 4G, HSPA+, and 4G+?
2. The OP says something about not being able to access HTTPS sites, but this was posted in 2011 is this still a problem?

Any help is great! Thanks

1 - All the same thing, although I've never heard of 4G+, maybe 3G+. Which would still be the same thing. It's about speed,forget about the names. The carriers all vary from 1MB/s to about 8MB/s. I'm sure someone can be more specific than me on that.

2 - I think it's been corrected.

You mentioned you use 5GB in 10 days so close to like 15GB a month.
The thing is what's your option that can get cheaper plan with 10GB to 15GB 4G data per month? Straight Talk with almost certain cancel/lock your account. Probably the same with Sprint. And AT&T and Verizon no longer has unlimited data plan.
What are you getting that has cheap 15GB a month 4G data plan?

I consistently use 10-15GB's on Sprint without any issue. No throttling or warnings or anything.
The only reason i'm considering leaving Sprint is because there 3G speeds are terrible and wimax isn't all it was cracked up to be.

But after seeing how quick I ran thru those 5GB's on T-Mobile and the throttling down to unbearable 2G speeds and wanting me to sign a contract to get the value plan that allows 10GB's of 4G i figured I might as well suck it up for a few more months until Sprint rolls out there LTE network. I'm returning the Galaxy Nexus and ordering an HTC EVO 4G LTE. Whether ur phone is unlocked or not they make it a pain in the ass to be on a prepaid plan and also limit ur options as supposed to post paid.

I don't blame you. I got kicked..well..okay I kind of did it on purpose to get out of contract...for too much data roaming. I only roamed like 1GB on Verizon for 3 months and apparently this is enough to make them bitch at me to "control my usage or find another provider". laugh out loud

Anyway, I don't know where you live but Sprint's LTE network probably won't be fully complete until late 2013/early 2014. Key markets are supposed to get it near the end of this year, but I had that same crapload of promises with WiMax that I just couldn't stand paying for "4G" service that I wasn't getting.

What EXACTLY are you doing pulling that much data consistently? My battery (it's extended as well) drained very quickly when I was on Sprint with my Evo 3D, downloading less than like 1GB. I only surpassed 6GBs once or twice, and around 4-5GBs is perfect for me, since I can offload usage at home mostly...and I don't tether excessively which sounds like what you're doing.

And I understand where you're coming from on the contract thing, but T-Mobile is still one of the most consumer friendly carriers of the Big 4 left. They are the ONLY ones that have a $200 ETF anymore (everyone else is $350 for "smart" devices), so even if you terminate, you're still saving money with T-Mobile, so I guess they have to make concessions somewhere. I find it odd too, but at least they give you the option at the very least.

Anyway, I would look into finding someone with a Verizon grandfathered unlimited data plan and have them transferring their account to you because that's truly unlimited, and Verizon has established their nationwide LTE network already. It's funny because Sprint's Galaxy Nexus comes with LTE disabled, and I'm sure the Evo 4G LTE will too, since your battery will probably die from the complete lack of no LTE service, like anywhere (except certain parts of Texas for now). laugh out loud

Yeah, as I suspected, I just don't get service in my house. Once I got half a block down the street, the phone activated, got my welcome SMS messages, etc. Had service everywhere I went while I was out, and now that I'm back at home, emergency calls only. So, not the plan for me. Oh well.

  • Good for 7 days
  • No activation fee, annual contract, credit check or overages
  • Works with any T-Mobile Internet device
It's not confirmed that these are real, but they do exist on the Walmart site, and supposedly are starting on the 21st. I'm not clear as to whether or not they require / allow a voice plan.

I'd consider this over the $30 Monthly4G plan, as I use less than 1GB per month, and limited minutes.

I've never passed 100mb with my pageplus plan Big Grin which leads me to a curiosity, what do you do on your phone that eats thru that much data, and at such slow speed, how can you stand using them for extended period of time...??

Quote from funknjunk View Post :
Couple of noob questions.
1. What is the difference between 4G, HSPA+, and 4G+?
2. The OP says something about not being able to access HTTPS sites, but this was posted in 2011 is this still a problem?

Any help is great! Thanks
4G, 3G, HSPA+ & HSDPA are all the same thing and is more like 3.5G

"4G+" probably refers to LTE, which technically LTE is like 3.9G.

Not sure about your second question, but it's something that only affected Android phones.
