This needs a master thread that is easy to find in the forums. I've complied most of the relevant information into an easy to read post. This service was just introduced this month.

What's T-Mobile Connect?

$15 a month for Unlimited Talk, Text, and 2GB of Data. Every yearly anniversary of your plan, 500MB of data is added to your monthly data allotment (2.5GB after first year, 3GB after the second year, etc) for up to 5 years total (after 5 years 4.5GB of data per month).

$25 a month for for Unlimited Talk, Text, and 5GB of Data. Every yearly anniversary of your plan, 500MB of data is added to your monthly data allotment (5.5GB after first year, 6GB after the second year, etc) for up to 5 years total (after 5 years 7.5GB of data per month).

If you reach your data limit within any month, your data will stop working. Since this is pre-paid, you can simply buy a "data pass" to add extra data if this occurs to instantly get your data working again. Here's a link to information on data passes: https://www.t-mobile.com/support/...ata-passes

I've summarized most of the T-mobile FAQ page below. Here's a link to it: https://prepaid.t-mobile.com/plan...onnect-faq

- You need to pay $10 for a new sim card (you can keep your existing mobile number).
- Monthly plan rates are locked and will not change ($15 or $25 a month)
- This is a prepaid plan. Cancel any time without penalty
- It gives access to T-mobile's 5G network
- no T-Mobile Tuesday
- no international roaming/calling/text – aka no service outside of the United States
- Features often seen in post paid accounts like "Music Freedom" or "Netflix on us" is not available ($30 grandfathered plans didn't have access to this)
- hotspot tethering included
- wifi calling and visual voicemail available
- include 100MB domestic roaming
- Bring your own device, no device purchase required
- Up to 5 lines can be added to T-mobile connect
- No credit check required, this is prepaid

This plan is great for people who don't use a ton of data. I've been on T-mobile's $30 unlimited text/ 5GB 4G (unlimited data is throttled after 5GB) plan (with 100 minutes of talk a month) and I've learned that I don't go over 5GB very often. Wifi is everywhere. I force all of my apps to only update over wifi. I rarely ever use over 5GB a month in data. But what nags me is the 100 minutes of talk! It's very constraining. Losing out on T-mobile Tuesday is a bummer (although it has been quite pathetic the past few months) but if you go with the $15 a month plan that would save people on the previous $30 plan, $180 a year. Not bad! T-mobile is merging with Sprint so the network is getting larger and they are pioneering 5G.

Are there any taxes or fees added to the above mentioned prices?
You lose binge on, which the $30 plan has. I do hit or come very close to 5gb a month, so I like that I can still do email after that, even at the very slow throttled speed. I do wish it was more like 128 or 256kbps instead of 56kbps though.
Mine is. Maybe you didn't turn it on. There is a dial code to turn it on and off.
#BNG# or #264# - Checks your Binge On status.
#BOF# or #263# - Turn off Binge On.
#BNG# or #266# - Turn on Binge On.

The only taxes I've had to pay on T-mobile's pre-paid plans is when refilling my account balance. The fee is is less than 60 cents for me. So if you add $100 to your account balance you get charged 60 cents. It might vary on where you live though, certain states could charge taxes, but T-mobile doesn't add any fees to pre-paid plans.

I bought the $25 plan and there was $2.15 taxes here in Central Florida on the initial first month. It is unclear to me whether I will have to pay these taxes ongoing.

Not if you buy your refills from target.com for email delivery, and you get 5% red card discount, and often additional discounts.

I think this would be good for kids or teenager. Personally I have switched from $30 100 min to $40 unlimited talk with music freedom since I found myself need more minutes and I listen to music while driving. Wish mine would support 5g tho.

At least in my case the T-mobile android app would not work so you have to manage your account via web browser.

Yep. The android app is very unreliable. I use the web site.

It does appear that unlimited binge on does work. At least there is a setting for it under my profile.
