Not sure if this is the right forum to akk this question. I am currently on tmobile magenta plan and have 7 lines. Can I move 1 line from that account to $15plan?
You can, just keep in mind you'll be going from a postpaid plan to a prepaid plan on that line. If you have any device in payments on that line you'll have to pay it off and you won't be able to finance devices for that line in the future, they'll need to be purchased outright. As well you'll lose any postpaid perks for that line (ie international roaming capabilities).

Thank you. My device is fully paid and I always buy from Costco whenever there are any promos. Now if I move this to prepaid then I don't think i will be eligible to jump on those costco offers for this line..

Correct, Costco offers are all postpaid. The only offers you'll see are for phone in a box (ie the ones that hang on a shelf at Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc). For the most part prepaid only gets deals on entry and mid level phones, not high end phones like postpaid.

Unless you only need a line for the short term, there's no way to determine if these plans are actually a deal or not without knowing the plans' prices after the initial 60 days.

Oh this is perfect! I have Google Fi and though it is great when I'm outside my home and in other countries, I get no service in my own house. Not a problem as I have internet (Wi-Fi) but sometimes that goes out and I'm stuck.

Call Google Fi about it and they said that though they use bands of several carriers, they are on the low end of it and won't get the priority coverage. Said I should buy an extender if I want better service. Yeah no.

I was just about to go back to T-Mobile but will wait for tomorrow to get the $25 plan. This is great, thanks for posting!

The plans are offered on Metro for 60 days - does not say this is a temporary promotion anywhere in the release. TMobile promised it pre-merger and in all likelihood it's a regular long term plan once you have it.

Not sure if I remember correctly or not, but Google Fi uses T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular. So if Google Fi isn't getting signal at your house, T-Mobile probably isn't much better..?

If this is a long term plan indeed, I will gladly get in. T-mobile signal works fine to me.

Yes, Fi does use all those but they are on the low priority for those towers. That means that regular T-Mobile customers will get the highest priority from their towers. At my house, the only tower available is T-Mobile but because Fi is on the low end of it, I barely get any signal if any. My wife who is on T-Mobile has no problem getting signal in our house though.

wow so cheap, signal sucks
includes tmo tuesdays?
Well, signal depends greatly on where you are. I've seen it increase drastically over the last few years. As to Tuesday's, I am going to guess not since it is a prepaid plan. I believe Tuesday Thanks are only for postpaid.

It says 60 days, but also same plans available on metro.

I didn't intend to suggest that the plan will be discontinued after 60 days.

But consider this: How often does a carrier specifically state that a plan price is guaranteed for XX days and then not increase the price after the specified number of days have passed for customers who sign up? They have decided to offer this plan early due to the economic effects of the coronavirus and they may even decide to extend the initial 60-day pricing period, but carriers don't include information (like the fact that the price is guaranteed for a certain amount of time) in their promos without a reason. It's possible that they haven't included the plans' regular/permanent prices because they haven't decided on them yet.

Just a word of caution for those who may be leaving plans they may not be able to get back again and jumping to a plan that may cost an unknown amount after 60 days.

I've been on T-Mobile Prepaid for about 4 years and I've been getting T-Mo Tuesday offers since the day I signed up.
