OP is back! See WIKI for relevant information.

Short: NEW Activations only.
Buy sim card + activation kit/code (required).
Activate online at t-mobile.com, choose $30 plan. Done.

Any unlocked GSM phone will work. Maybe others, YMMV. NO SPRINT/VERIZON (unless they are unlocked and accept SIM cards... typically "world phones"). Also no Blackberry.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

$30 per month—Unlimited web and text with 100 minutes talk
100 minutes talk | Unlimited text | First 5 GB at up to 4G speeds
This plan is only available for devices purchased from
Wal-Mart or devices activated on T-Mobile.com

**THIS IS FOR NEW ACTIVATIONS ONLY** YMMV as existing customer.

This offer is only for NEW Customers.
If you are no longer tied to tmobile contract, To get around "new customer only" restriction, port your existing number to Google Voice $20 one time fees. Then get this new offer from t-mobile with new number. Then forward all calls from your Google Voice to your new t-mobile number. All these will be invisible to all your friends since they still call the old number, and you still get their calls on your mobile handset. This is seamless for making and receiving calls on Android. (For iPhone keep in mind this isn't fully seamless when making calls using the native phone app, texting, etc.)

To activate the new tmobile plan you can go to the following URL
Code:
http://www.t-mobile.com/shop/plans/ActivateCodes.aspx

When signing up online, specify that you need a new number. After you're done, call 877-789-3106 and tell them you want to transfer your number. The process will be much faster/smoother.

Running out of minutes?...
If you need more minutes you can use VOIP service
30 and 35MB per hour
use google voice via VOIP....

(Tip... when Activating, a single invalid Activation Code / SIM serial / IMEI serial may display all three as invalid. Enter 15 "1"s as your IMEI to get around having a valid IMEI.)

Will my phone work with 4G/3G?

AT&T branded (bought from AT&T or has logo on phone):
Quote :
Maybe T-Mobile's 3G/4G network requires the 1700 band in many areas, which means only 2G / EDGE speeds will work. But some areas are starting to get 3G on the 1900 band: http://www.phonearena.com/news/T-Mobile-turns-on-3G-coverage-for-unlocked-Apple-iPhone-models-in-some-areas_id24870

Where to buy a 4G/3G supported phone?

Just a Tmobile SIM card:
Quote :
YMMV... the T-mobile store will give you a card and activation kit for free. Or just buy online, currently on sale for only $0.99.
Quote :
Buy any Tmobile prepaid phone at a retailer ~$20 and activate online. Buy a SIM card from Tmobile.com for $8.
Craigslist or ebay. Find a Tmobile branded 4G handset like the Samsung Galaxy S 4G or MyTouch 4G.


Look here to see at supported phones: Phone Arena [phonearena.com]

Rule of thumb: If it's not sold by T-Mobile, it most likely will NOT support the 1700 band. The 1700 band is pretty rare in the rest of the world, so most phones simply just don't support it. Rare exceptions are phones like the Nokia N8, which is a pentband phone, that support the 1700 band but is not officially sold by T-Mobile. Another rare exception is the Motorola Atrix HD, which was sold on the AT&T Network but supports the 1700 band, including LTE.

VISUAL VOICE MAIL, CALL FORWARDING, AND YOUMAIL IS NOT AVAILABLE WITH T-MOBILE PREPAID. THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN GET IT TO WORK!!!!!
Visual Voicemail now works through the official Android app, and only uses data, so a great way to save on minutes! Text transcriptions are still $3.99/month. https://play.google.com/store/app...tion&hl=en

You can get free text transcriptions from google if you hook up google's voicemail to your number. You can also get rid of tmobile's voicemail app if you do that.

Free Nights? No
Free Weekends? No
Free Long Distance? Yes
Do remaining minutes rollover? No
Free Roaming? Yes, on voice and texts, no on data (regular T-Mobile plans roam on data, so data coverage will be poorer on this plan)
BingeOn? Yes, Data used by supported video services will NOT count against your high speed data: http://i.imgur.com/67hi7Fm.png http://i.imgur.com/RQx29kQ.png but data will be deducted from your 5GB until depleted. Once depleted you will still be able to stream videos at 480p without throttling. All your other data will be slowed down.

Which phones for tethering? Any rootable android phone OR Galaxy Nexus directly from Google Play Store support it natively without modification

SETUP YOUR GOOGLE VOICE w/SIPDROID FOR EASY FREE VOIP CALLING ON ICS/JB. THANKS TO microkelvin
Yes, you are right. It took me the whole night to figure it out. pbxes setup is very complicated. I dont want to get into it. Luckily that we just need to sign in once, setup the password for your username-200 extension and you are done.

Assume you are completely new to sipdroid/pbxes. First, install sipdroid app, create a brand new pbxes account with your google voice credentials. Then you are done. That very first step of 'creating a new pbxes account' will do all the dirty work for you. No need to do any further setup. Just write down your pbxes username (without -200) and password (which is your google voice password, generate a new application specific password if you use 2 factor authentication). Then you can safely remove sipdroid forever. No need to keep it or run it on the background anymore.

Next, go to pbxes.com website, sign in with your pbxes username (without -200), and the google voice account password. It sounds weird but it took me like an hour scratching my head to figure this out. Once you sign in, click on your personal info, go to extension setup, you will have your username-200 extension ready. Make sure to click on that username-200 extension and fill in your COMPLETELY NEW PASSWORD for that extension. Then apply/save. Done. This is a very important step that took me the whole night to figure out. I thought that username-200 should use your pbxes password by default, but no. It's not set until you manually enter a complete new password just for that. It sounds crazy but you must do this to get your pbxes account to work on any SIP app.

Thats it. Now you can load up your ICS Call/Internet call Settings (or any SIP app), fill in your username-200 (no pbxes.com), password (the crazy password that you just manually entered earlier, any other pbxes.com password or google voice password will not work), then the sip server is "pbxes.org". That's it. Leave everything else as default.

If you want to receive incoming call with your google voice account, make sure to tick that "Receive incoming calls". You can either set your phone to intercept your dial pad with either "Internet calling" or use it everytime.

Enjoy unlimited google voice calling/receiving without any 3rd party app running (if you use your ICS built in internet calling). Or you can use your favorite SIP app with those 3 credentials (username-200, password, server: pbxes.org).

Sorry, I forgot how (or if) I setup the ICS internet calling using 3g/4g as default. But as long as I select "internet calling" on my dialpad, it will use whatever faster speed (ie. Wifi if it's connected to wifi, 3g/4g if it's not connecting to wifi).

EDIT:

The title says "Walmart" in it, however this offer is for all "new customers" that activate a new line of service using a T-Mobile micro-sim card purchased from any retailer that sells this item. Purchased mine for $5.99 with an included $3.44 credit offer and activated the phone without a problem.

Well you obviously need LTE in your area first. T-Mobile is still deploying their network throughout the year, but if you know for a fact that T-Mobile's LTE has launched in your area, your just need an LTE compatible phone on their network.


Any of the LTE compatible phones sold on T-Mobile should already be all set and ready to go with no setup.


The Nexus 4 is a little different though for two reasons:
1.) You need to re-enable the LTE radio by downgrading a radio.Google disabled it with the latest update as they didn't get certification from the FCC for it. If you know how to flash a zip through recovery with Android, then it'll take like a minute.
2.) It's stock Android so it receives no carrier customization: so to change the APN just go to Settings-->Mobile networks-->Access Point Names and change it to fast.t-mobile.com.


That's it.


Like I said, only applies to the Nexus 4 due to the way the radios were upgraded so it involves a few more steps; any other LTE capable phone you get through T-Mobile should be ready to go, out of the box.

Did you notice a change in speed after you edited the APN?
I thought the Nexus 4 "didn't" support LTE..
You shouldn't change the APN if you don't have LTE in your area. You won't notice a speed increase, and might actually see a speed decrease on HSPA+. However, the fast.t-mobile.com APN is required to access the LTE network on T-Mobile. It won't connect to it otherwise.


And no, the Nexus 4 doesn't "officially" support LTE, but the hardware has been there, and our Canadian friends have been using it ever since, so we here in the states can now also use it on T-Mobile since it's the only band supported by the Nexus 4 (at&t has like one tiny area in the middle of nowhere that also uses that one band that the Nexus 4 can connect to, but T-Mobile's full LTE network will be compatible with the Nexus 4).

I think Houston should have LTE? Will check but HSPA+ is quick enough..
I'm switching from the GS3 to the Nexus 4 mainly because of the PURE android experience and OS updates..

Great choice! I love my Nexus 4. I'm going to stop by an at&t/Sprint store to check out a HTC One just to feel it, since the Android community hasn't shut up about it over the past few weeks.


Still keeping my Nexus 4 because of the pure experience though.


And you're lucky! Houston is indeed one of the first 7 launch markets... 2x10 too! (more bandwidth; faster speeds essentially).
  • Baltimore, MD: 2x5MHz
  • Houston, TX: 2x10MHz
  • Kansas City, KS/MO: 2x5MHz
  • Las Vegas, NV: 2x5MHz
  • Phoenix, AZ: 2x10MHz
  • San Jose, CA: 2x10MHz
  • Washington, D.C.: 2x10MHz

I'm running stock. I used to always runs custom ROMs on my old phones because of the lag and random errors, but stock is perfect for me on a Nexus. I like to use it as intended usually (except with my Nexus 7 because of how it's setup in my car). Of course, it's android, so you have your options, so there's some great custom ROMs for the Nexus 4 available.


ParanoidAndroid is great one which I use on my Nexus 7 if you want some tablet customization and some cool PIE controls.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/s...?t=2020336


I've heard Xylon is great too.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/s...?t=2046968


But you can do most of what you need on stock on a Nexus 4 with rooting and bootloader unlocked. So I've found relatively no use for a custom ROM except for some gimmicky type features, but everyone has their own tastes.


Oh make sure you use franko's kernel. Awesome guy, drastically improves battery life, and his custom color controls, bring out the nice rich blacks and colors on the Nexus 4, unlike the over-saturated colors that LG shipped it with. Otherwise, I've made no other real customization to it.

Stock with the old radio flashed for LTE? I've been meaning to revert, but I've read bad things about voice issues and don't want to bother with a custom rom so I'm still on the latest .48 with HSPA+...

How's it been working out for you?

Oh yeah, and which Franco kernel are you on.. milestone or nightly? Wondering what's the best for stable everyday use..

Correct. There were voice issues, but you just needed to edit two lines in a text file, save it , and reboot, and you're fine.


It's been fine so far. I am not in an LTE area yet so for now it's just there for "when it's ready".


Stay on .48 for now if you don't have LTE in your area.


As for franko, funny, I actually bought his app because of how stable his nightly kernels were, but his past few revisions (r122 onwards) I've had some weird bugs. First time was bootlooping, which he was aware of, and had fixed, then on r125 I had weird moments where the screen would take a long time to unlock/power on from deepsleep, he also fixed and was aware of, but now I just got another weird bug in r127, where I couldn't pull down the notification bar. laugh out loud


The guy is busy and is literally pushing nightlies out insnaely fast, so it's okay. Better to go with milestone for now if you want stability though.

I was going to say "there's no way that supports T-Mobile's LTE". It actually supports their HSPA+ network and their LTE network. Damn Sony.

LG Optimus L9 is finally getting Jelly Bean update

laugh out loud "Finally"? I just dealt with a Droid Bionic that got it 2 days ago. It was launched in September of 2011 with Gingerbread, and at long freaking last, was upgraded to Jellybean (4.1.2), after being delayed several times.


The L9 was launched in October last year. A 6 month delay for a non-flagship I would not be b*tching about. I'm actually surprised they gave it Jellybean, honestly. laugh out loud
