Still working deal not dead. Tested on new sign up at 12:01A 11/11/2014.

******************Folks this will be my last post. I accomplished what I set out to do, and that was to expose and promote a loop hole that can save you money. I did not want to keep it to myself. As far as I know, I was the only one in the US that figured this out on launch day, and thought it would be selfish to not let everyone know. Everything is laid out in this thread. I no longer have the time to answer any more post. Good luck to you all, and God speed. If someone else wants to pick it up from here, feel free. LTE out ***************


T-Mobile's new wearable rate plan - Just $5 a month ($15.00 stand alone)
For the launch of the Samsung Gear S, T-Mobile designed the perfect new rate plan for this new breed of wearable devices with SIM cards. Now, T-Mobile post-paid voice customers can add a line for their Gear S for as little as $5 a month and stay connected like never before - from your wrist - with:

Unlimited talk
Unlimited text
Unlimited data, with up to 500MB of high-speed data every month
Unlimited music streaming through supported applications apps like Milk Music(TM)
Unlimited data and text in more than 120 countries and destinations worldwide with Simple Global(TM)
Want to leave your phone at home and stay connected with your watch while you travel? We've got you covered.

New T-mobile plan just started to assist with the launch of the new Galaxy gear. The plan is called unlimited for wearables. It includes Unlimited talk, txt, and 500 megs of high speed data, and then drops to 2G for remainder of cycle. It also includes free international data and text, and free unlimited Pandora streaming. If you have a voice line already, the additional line is only 5 dollars a month. I switched both of my "Tablet" data lines to this plan, and then ported my number on top of the data lines and it works great on my lg g2. You have to have a new sim, and ask telesales to activate you on the session based tablet plan, which they do real time on the phone, then log into online account management, and switch your plan to the new $15.00 option . They will ask you for a tablet imei to to activate the "Tablet" line. You can use any tablet imei, such as an ipad, or android tablet imei. If you already have a T-mobile voice line, you can't switch to this plan. You would have to port out to another provider for 1 hour, then port back on top of the temporary "data" line number. That works fine, I just did it, and that's how you get around that if you want to keep your number. My Fiancee and I will pay only $30.00 a month, as T-mobile does not tax data lines. This plan is so new as it just started in the billing system on the 9th of Nov. (even though tablet imei is needed to activate it is irrelevant and sim can be placed in any T-mobile or unlocked phone and it will work just fine)

People are reporting thatt working SIMs have stopped working after a while, especially after putting them in another phone. Seems like it is YMMV now.

Not YMMV, but NEVER move sim card to different phone once it is up on wearable plan, once you do that, sim card will be disabled. And you cannot activate on wearable plan on gsm watch and then move the sim card, you need to activate on tablet plan first and put it in a non T-Mobile phone then call to change to wearable, then leave it there forever, NEVER move the sim card. Once you moved the sim card, not only the sim will be disabled but your account will no longer work even if you change to different sim card. You need to cancel the account and activate a new sim on a tablet plan and start the process again.

^^ DOESN'T MATTER - THIS PLAN IS FOR WEARABLES NOT A PHONE! THIS IS WHY SIMS AND ACCOUNTS ARE GETTING BLOCKED! STAY AWAY FROM THIS UNLESS YOU PLAN TO USE A WEARABLE. IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE EVERYBODY USING THIS PLAN ON A PHONE GETS BLOCKED.

You need to have a POSTPAID ACCOUNT or sign up for one to take advantage of this.

If you didn't get this already, it's probably too late.
Online option has disappeared from Mobile Internet accounts, meaning that you'll have to go through CS to get it changed.
Go to end of thread to see if any workaround or success with T-Mob CS. If not, and you have a decent plan, probably best not to risk losing your current plan (and/or number) until there is one.

Surprised no one has put up the actual URL for this yet. Here it is:

Steps from kimdotcom:
1. Buy a sim card from Best Buy
2. Activate the plan through tablet session plan through telesales.
3. Give them the dummy IMEI or your real tablet IMEI mentioned in the first few pages of the thread
4. Insert the sim card into your phone, turn on the device and go to online management tool.
5. Switch to wearables plan.
6. Your screen should then reflect a new plan, screenshot posted by the OP
7. Go to amazon.com (using your 500MB data) and buy a book on speedreading.

Correct me if I'm wrong but as a post paid customer I can add a $5 line for the Smartwatch plan but use my phone or tablet instead to receive the benefits you described. Do I have to purchase the samsung Smartwatch to make this happen?

No smart watch needed, only tablet imei to get line active on session based pricing 10.00 plan at first then use online account management to switch yourself.

Yes, that's the way to go, just ensure you have a new T-mobile sim card to read to telesales over the phone.

Tablet IMEI is to get line active on the data only device side. Then you can switch to the $5.00 plan through online account management. $15.00 for peeps with no voice line already. We have to jump through this hoop, because I don't have a smart watch imei lol.

Yup, telesales was just informed of the plan, so pretty painless. Took 5 min on the phone if you have a smart watch imei, if not, just activate a session based tablet line for $10.00, then switch the plan in online account management to $15.00 plan for stand alone, or $5.00 discounted rate with qual voice line.
