Link to Family Plans [t-mobile.com]


OK, this is kinda related to this thread about a new T-Mobile plan, but I want to highlight the Family Plans.

So as an individual you get unlimited min/txt + 500mb of data plus hotspot for $50

but as a Family you get a better deal.

2 Lines for $40 each ($80)
3 Lines for $30 each ($90)
4 Lines for $25 each ($100)
5 Lines for $22 each ($110)

and each person gets the same plan as the the individual paying $50

Plus no contracts required, so if you pool with friends and your friend is a dead beat, no worries about him costing you $200 for an ETF.

Also in my case, I was previously on the Family Value plan was paying $5 for 200mb but now it's included and upgraded to 500mb with free hotspot. So I'm saving $5/line

*you can switch over as long as you are at least 18 months into your existing plan. You will still have to finish out your current plan even though this says "no contract" but if you are out of contract this will not extend your contract.

**corrected my earlier statement, 2GB is available for $10/month, if you want to pick and choice which line gets more data, add the 500MB first then edit each line individually

My parents don't need data service for their business that they have.
We have 5 lines with sprint and were paying $235-$250 per month for 1500 anytime minutes but Unlimited mobile to mobile with any carrier which was really necessary.
With this rate plan, it's about $125 after taxes for unlimited minutes. Saving them about $115 each month, $1,380 a year.
What I meant was why not pay a little more and actually use the data you are paying for?

there are plenty of $80 -100 android's. Or you could have went with a couple of these http://slickdeals.net/f/5892452-PANTECH-P9070-BURST-UNLOCKED-4G-ANDROID-TOUCH-5MP-CAM-16GB-PHONE-BLACK-for-99-99-w-FS?v=1 a month ago.

I just found out about this plan today while looking to switch carriers.
I have a sprint account with 5 lines with flip phones (no need for data, just minutes). I was paying about $230 after taxes for 1500 anytime minutes and unlimited data just to get unlimited mobile to mobile.
Anyway, this deal seems great for what I need.

I was going to buy the plan/phones online and noticed they are even waiving the Activation fees.
So I called a tmobile store and they are also doing the activation fee waiver in store but the lady said they have to charge $10 fee for each sim card. Anyone get charge in store?
Wow, you have been rapped for a while...since long ago, there has been a t-mobile plan for 5 lines for $100....they have changed that now, but wow, you could have been saving a lot

Don't remind me lol. I hate the fact that we were paying for data without using any data. But it was necessary since most of our calls are to wireless numbers. And our sprint contract ended a few months ago.

Was the $100 with tmobile for unlimited minutes ?

It was $80 for Five lines two of which have unlimited and the other three 500 each. Of course texting was included. I had this plan and I also have a corporate discount of 12% and $10 off, so it was pretty sweet. It came to around $78. But I decided I needed data and switched to the plan you are on now. it costs $30 more but 500mb per line is the sweet spot.

Just got back from tmobile store. Went with my father to get 5 flip phones. Luckily I checked best buy before for the t139 flip phone and they had it for $20 each and tmobile had it for $48 ($2 per month for 2 years). I told him if he could price match and the best he could do was $140 for 5 t139 (would've been $100 at best buy)
Only bad thing is that the store didn't have them in stock, so I'm waiting for him to get them at a different store

Anyway, he said they charge the $10 sim card for each line and no $36 activation fee.
My father was approved for 15 lines so I'm thinking of adding a line for myself since it's only $10 a month

Uh......if they are going to charge you for the SIM card whether you buy from them or not why don't you just save yourself $40 and some time and buy the phones from Best Buy?

Yea, I went ahead and bought the phones directly from best buy and went to get it activated at tmobile.
$107 for 5 basic flip phones
$53.50 for 5 sim cards
Looks like tmobile is getting lots of sales with this new rate plan/no contract thing.
The store was packed with people getting galaxy phones

I was on the $60/monthly prepaid, wife on pay as you go.Signed up for the family plan.First billing cycle is for roughly 1.5 monthly and it works out to $80 plus tax. Data restricted to 500MB @ 4G for each phone. Paid $10 for activating each phone and they also did a hard pull on my credit history Frown

Also if i am on wifi, assuming I dont have to do anything special to make sure the phones are not using 4G but using wifi to connect to the internet?

Not sure which phone you have, but if there is a WiFi signal at the top(Assuming its Android)then it'll be on WiFi. It will always use WiFi if its connected to it.

about three months ago, I went with tmo MVNO. This plan looks good. My only concerns are:

1. What is the data speed for upto 500mb?
2. Data speeds upto 2gb (for an additional $10) are 3g or 4g or LTE?


How much would I be charged in terms of taxes in NY for 90$?

THanks.

1. Data speeds depend on what your phone can handle and where you are. They will be up to LTE speeds if you can handle it. I am with T-Mobile and I get HSPA+ on my phone.

2. Data speeds are up to LTE, again if your phone supports their network and you are in LTE areas.

For those people interested in migrating from prepaid to postpaid, you might want to mention that you are a current tmobile prepaid customer when you are ordering your sim/activation kit over the phone from Tmobile telesales. When I did that, the rep said that because I specifically mentioned that I was currently a prepaid customer with tmobile, he wouldn't charge me the $10 fee for the new sim card. However, he said that he had been instructed to only waive the sim fee if the customer identified himself or herself as a current prepaid customer migrating over. I was happy not to pay the $10 fee--hopefully this will work for someone else.

How did they handle porting your number from prepaid to postpaid? I am assuming you wanted to keep the same number, right?

They said it would be possible, but I will need to get the sim card first and activate the new postpaid account before I can port over the old prepaid number. They also won't transfer over any prepaid money to the postpaid side, so I need to use up all my monthly 4g minutes and balance before making the switch. You have 30 days to activate the sim card for the new plan, so that should be plenty for me.

Thanks for the reply! That's exactly what I was told by the CSR over chat few days ago so I am glad there appears to be some consistency here. I am considering a switch too but it won't be until June so I have few months to get all the details right before making a jump.
