T-Mobile’s Back-To-School Promotion Begins July 1st
TMobile upcoming back-to-school promotion beginning July 1st offering promotional family plans with $5 Classic and $0 Value add-a-lines. This promotional offering will offer savings of $5 per month, until January 2, 2014.

The promo offer is good for all Classic and Value plans that have shared limited buckets of minutes and the 500-minute AAL on unlimited family plans. Free nights and weekends, and other t-mobile.

Notes/Fine prints:
  • Good for both new and existing customers, and of course it requires a two-year contract. Existing customers will be required to change their existing rate plan and extend their contract on all lines to take advantage of this promo. A quick reminder that a contract extension for a rate plan change does not affect your upgrade date for a new phone
  • No grandfathered features (no myfav, no tzone, no web2go, no ...etc).
  • Tax+fees depending on your location, +12% in CA. Some military or corp -5% to -20% discount. Also tax on migration fees, and smartphone.
  • You do NOT need to get all 5 lines, but current promo gives you 3rd, 4th and 5th discount until Jan 2, 2014. Pricing will not change if you only get less line. After Jan 2nd, 2014, you will have to pay $5 extra for each 3rd, 4th and 5th.
  • Once that line/number are on Value plan, current t-mobile policy will not allow you to get back to plan which offer subsidy in future. So once you are in value plan, you will always have to buy devices yourself.
  • One account can have upto 5 lines. One person if qualify can have multiple accounts.

Best deal on value plan. Corp, military discount can be applied.

UNLIMITED MINUTES WITH DATA VALUE PLAN:

I have worked hard to pull info from different official sites to create this deal...rep me if you find this a good deal hug

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Classic plan also have this promo benefit, but monthly will be slightly more, BUT YOU GET BETTER DISCOUNT on smartphone. Value plan customer needs to buy smartphone at "retail price". In my location, costco retail price on smartphone is cheaper than t-mobile retail store.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
HOW TO GET THIS DEAL

STEP 0: Check t-mobile coverage in your area: http://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/pcc.aspx
If you are new to t-mobile or getting a new plan, please do the activation in person, do NOT use t-mobile chat. This will save a lot of grief and human error, a wisdom from many experienced t-mobile customers.

A.If you are still in contract t-mobile customer, call t-mobile directly for the add-on promo. If you are interested in value plan, they will have to check if you qualify for value plan. Check migration fees below. For NEW customer, I would recommend going personally to costco or tmobile retail store. Update, just learn this myself on 7/5: You can get this online. Put the package into the cart first and then customize each line at checkout, http://www.t-mobile.com/shop/Pack...kages.aspx. Update 7/6: if you cannot get unlimited plan via t-mobile website, you can call t-mobile directly or goto retail store (t-mobile, costco, best buy...etc). It's still available, t-mobile website is just missing lots of features and plan.

B. IF you are interested in value plan and planning to get a smartphone at costco, eg Samsung S2, do steps below:
1. First make sure you qualify: out of t-mobile contract or qualify for upgrade (not value plan) or less than 6 months left on t-mobile contract (not value plan) or new t-mobile customer or currently value plan customer wanting add-a-line, AND (access to costco membership and data plan)
2. Goto local costco. Tell them that you wanted value plan and wanted smartphones as well. Do your transactions. New activation is free, not sure about existing add-a-line customer. Sim is free.
3. Go home, make sure everything works and happy. If you have corp/military/eduction discount..etct, then call t-mobile CS. They should be able to apply for you.
UPDATE 7/23/2012: Costco will NO longer sell S3 with value plan.
UPDATE 8/07/2012: Costco now require phone purchase with all value lines activated. Thus I would recommend ONLY activating value plan lines for smartphones (first two line) or (add-a-line). Costco smartphone are decently priced but all their dumb phone are really really expensive! Then goto t-mobile stores to add/activate the rest. Remember to ask for free activation.

C. You DO NOT need to goto costco to get the value plan and classic plan deal. You can get value plan or classic plan along with smartphone anywhere, eg: t-mobile store, amazon wireless, walmart, ...etc. Major differences is the pricing of the smartphone. You can always buy at independent market like google nexus at google play or ebay or craigslist or amazon store. Costco is only mentioned here because they have great smartphone price when u activate/signup there. Where and when you activate/signup the value plan will determine the cost of your smartphone. So if you signup/activate at costco, then you get costo smartphone pricing. If you signup/activate at t-mobile store, you get t-mobile store smartphone pricing, you cannot go back to costco to get costco smartphone pricing later for that line. Lesson here: signup/activate plan or line where the smartphone is cheapest, and get the smartphone for that line at the same time.

D. If you don't want to buy smartphones for value plan, then just goto t-mobile store. It'll be free sim and NO activation fees. Note that once you are already in value plan, in future, you will NOT be able to buy smartphone for those lines at value plan prices, not in costco and not with t-mobile. Those lines will not be able to transfer back to a subsidized t-mobile plan (eg: classic, ...etc). This is the current t-mobile policy. It may or may not change in future. You can buy phones at ebay, craigslist, google play or get pre-paid phones, ..etc. Note that phone prices trend is dropping like crazy.

E. If you decide to buy smartphone, remember that tax on smartphone is based on retail price. If you pay migration fees, there will be tax on that too.

My experience shows that being nice to the salesperson or cs makes getting the deal easier, especially retention laugh out loud
----------------------------------------------------------------------
MIGRATION FEES for existing t-mobile customer still in contract and wanting to move to value plan. Depending on when you get your phone subsidized, there maybe a migration fees going to value plan PER LINE. Tax on migration fees. Official doc from t-mobile: http://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-3282. Use this if anyone tells you differently.

Months Completed on Contract, per t-mobile official doc 3282, lasts modified Mar 8, 2012 10:38 PM by tmo_ryanm

I called retention today.
Switched to value plan 5 lines 1000min unlimited txt 2 phones with 200MB capped data all for 64$ after taxes.
They gave me 10$ discount every month for 24 monthsm+ back to school 3 lines for 0$ until january 2014

Used to pay 97$ great deal
Is retention the same as loyalty team?
I had the back to school promo on classic before I switched, but when I switched the promo was no longer available.
I tried getting it with loyalty twice, but no go.

Quote from pseudoswede View Post :
There are no incentives; however, there is a plan called the Bridge to Value [tmonews.com] that will basically slash your data plan by $15 per line per month until you are eligible to migrate to the Value Plan (at the 18th month of your contract). Since you just re-upped your contract, you will basically have reduced data plan rates for the next 17 months or so.

Important: If you agree to move to the Bridge to Value, you are actually agreeing to an additional 24 month committment! With the example above, you will be paying 17 months on the Classic Plan (with reduced data plan rates) then another 24 months on the Value Plan before you are off contract (so 41 months of contracted T-Mobile service). That fact was really never made clear to me, plus the CSR said I had a 14-day buyer's remorse period--which turned out to be a lie.
I'm looking at this plan, but not sure I understand it.
Lets say I currently have 5 lines on a classic family plan, each line with 2gb data. All 5 lines are Galaxy S3, FREE after rebate
So, it's $99+$5x3+$20x5 = $215 in 2013 and $230 in 2014 (back to school expires)
If my contract is only 2 months old, can I jump on this "Bridge To Value" plan saving $15x5 a month? I understand it would extend my contract by another 18 months, but saving $75 a month for the next 15-16 moths is a good deal. Also, with this new plan 2gb is only $5, but then will it go to $10 after 15-16 months?

Or does this $15 discount apply only on a new line that would be added under this plan (which I wouldn't even qualify because I already have 5)?

To answer some of your questions: no, you pay Classic Plan voice/text rates while on the Bridge to Value plan. The only savings you get is with data plans on those lines. I really can't explain it much further since I was somewhat duped into it, and I was only on the Bridge to Value plan for a week before I migrated fully over to the Value Plan.

This web page gives an explanation... http://www.tmonews.com/2012/11/t-...ate-plans/

Calling Loyalty/Retentions will also give you more complete details.

How long were you on a classic before you migrated to Bridge to Value? If less than 18 months - why did you end up moving to Value after a week and did you have to pay migration fee?

This plan is a mystery. I was getting conflicting responses from loyalty before on other issues and I bet you if you call them about this 3 times you'll get 3 conflicting responses. Their internet site is a joke, they can't even add up minutes used on a family plan... In fact, what you see online is not always what they see in their systems. The real truth will come out only when you get the bill.

I had been on a legacy, pre-Classic plan for 11 years (super cheap family plan, family text messaging, MyFaves, etc.). I had some massive overage/billing issues the past two years (since November 2010), and it took until January 2013 for them to admit it was their fault.

I do not want to turn this into a T-Mobile complaints thread, so I'll just say the retentions rep really had no clue what she was doing when she migrated me over to the Value Plan. She said I had 14 days to reconsider my migration, which turned out to be a lie, and I was also informed that since it migration was already scheduled to coincide with my billing date, it could not be changed.

First, are u currently a t-mobile customer? Are you out of contract? If you are existing t-mobile customer, and out of contract, call retention to get the original back to school deal. They are the only one able to do this.

If you are NOT existing customer:, goto t-mobile store and ask for "Value Plan".
2 lines for $80 (max 5 lines): (2 unlimited talk/text) + $5 per additional line for unlimited text+500 minutes each << add $10 for 2GB, $20 for un-throttle data, $25 for 5GB, $25 for unlimited voice on 3rd, 4th or 5th line

example:
$115 for 5 lines (2 unlimited talk+text+2gb unlimited data, 3 unlimited text+500 minutes)
$120 for 5 lines (3 unlimited talk+text, 2 unlimited text+500 minutes)
$160 for 5 lines (3 unlimited talk+text+2GB unlimited data, 1 unlimited text+2GB unlimited data+500 minutes, 1 unlimited text+500 minutes)

Your 15% UPS discount will be a wash after tax&fees.

Thank you so much for replying back and trying to help me out here. I am not a T-mobile customer yet and I want to become one. Hey quick question... do u think if i become a value plan customer and call retention department, they would change my plan to a classic plan with the back to school discount. The reason is i can not afford to pay every month for the phone and plus the 5 phones would cost a lot of money. So i would buy it on the subsidy price and save money.

for retention to give you discount and/or any special, you must be existing customer AND out of / near end of contract. If you just signup for classic plan, you will need to wait at least 18-24 months later.

Phone prices has dropped like a rock recently.
Choices:
1. Signup as classic plan for 4 lines, get 4 discounted HIGH END smartphones, S3 or Note 2. Then after a few days, pay migration fees, $200 per line. It'll come out around $400+tax per device.
2. Nexus 4 just came out last month, lack micro SD card, as good/betten than Samsung S3, brand new for $300. You just need to wait for a few more weeks to have it back in stock due to popular demand.
3. If you insist S3, then look at cowboom, used S3 t-mobile for $400. You'll need to get 2 years warranty, just in case it doesn't work.
4. Try costco. They have good pricing on value plan smartphone IF YOU ACTIVATE the new lines with costco. Do NOT get dumb phones from costco.
5. Samsung S2 from walmart. ?? not sure of pricing. Check SD.

How well does the Wifi calling work? And is it a pain to use? Would I be better off getting a signal amplifier? We do have stable interenet at our house....but we only get one bar of signal.
