I upgraded to an s3 and contract plan 2 months ago and had to get unlimited everything to be eligible for a free s3 after rebates. After I received my s3, I was able to downgrade all my lines to limited features such as $20 5gb data instead of $30 unlimited.
Now, Will this work for reducing the /$20 5gb to $5?
I called T-Mobile and was told that I am not eligible for this Bridge to Value plan since my contract only ends in June 2013. The CSR was trying to extend my contract by offering $10/month discount for 12 months and 1 month free (to stay in classic) or $10/month discount for 12 months (to switch to value plan). Both will extend my contract for 2 more years.
I was also offered this plan when my contract end date was approaching.
It honestly just doesn't make sense to me. I was currently paying $10/month for Internet on a classic plan. Upgrading to galaxy s3 or newer smartphone would cost me $20/month, and when I balked at that, that is when they offered me the bridge to value. HOWEVER,the plan itself makes no sense. It does not allow you to upgrade phones. Once you upgrade your phone you're still required to pay $20/month. Migrating to a value plan not only lowered my monthly voice plan but also my texting plan. On a bridge to value they are keeping you from upgrading phones AND preventing you from realizing true value plan savings.
For comparison I was paying $120/month after taxes for 4-line family plan 1000 minutes, text, and Internet on two lines. On a value plan I'm now paying $85 for 1000 minutes, text, and Internet in 4 lines. A bridge to value plan would have cost me $110/month for only two lines of Internet, with the same disadvantage as a value plan in that you can't upgrade phones.
i agree, not as good as a deal as it sounds, instead of giving discounted phones they are giving discounted data, but in the long term there is less savings over the span of 2 YEARS!!!. Value Plan is still the way to go with anything over 3 lines. 2 Lines is give n take/borderline. The whole key to this is the contract for 2 YEARS!! Short term worth it, long term not, but since u go on 2 years contract its not worth it cuz there is no short term!!
I was wondering if someone could help me, so we have a grandfathered plan and we've been contract free for about 2 years and my dad doesn't want to get locked into a 2 yr contract. Is it possible to get this added to the lines on our plan without signing a 2 yr contract? My parents have the 200mb plan and my brother and I have the grandfathered tzones plans. Any help is appreciated
I tried to get in on this, but was told that it could not be added to my grandfathered myfaves 300 plan, and that it's only for people on family plans.
Then I was offered $10 off per month for 24 months if I switched to a value plan and $10/month for 5GB data. I agreed to that, and then it turns out that the CSR lied and the $10/month plan is only 2GB of data, so I had to go through a whole big mess to get all the changes reverted.
I love these sorts of deals. I haven't had a smartphone for about a year now, but when I had my G1 and G2 with T-Mo, I was paying $39 per line (x 2) for 600 shared minutes and 5GB of data each ($20 Android Preferred). If I still had a smartphone, I'd switch to this data plan (assuming it would work with the grandfathered 600 minute shared voice plan I had).
Since I now have a VM dumbphone, I'm trying to find an old VZW unlimited contract to activate a microsim and put it in my iPad mini to use for unlimited data (for tethering, streaming, etc) off the grid. Hopefully I can find a deal close to the awesomeness of this one.
