can you please give the breakdown how you arrieved to $110? i have two lines 2GB + unlimited talk and text costs me $99.98 ($50 each line)
2 main lines (1st & 2nd) unlimited talk/text, NO data for $80
3-5th lines, free add-a-line, 2GB at 4G speed, 500 minutes $10 each
total: $80+$10*3=$110 before tax, fees, discounts
fyi: your cost of 2 lines are as expected. Pricing goes down on 3rd-5th line.
Quote from mprabs :
I am looking for 3 lines (2 unlimited tax + text + 2GB data and 3rd line with 500 minutes)..how much would that cost with our without phones in value plan?
If I go without the phones, do I still need to have contract with value plan?
5 lines for $100: (2 unlimited talk/text/data with 2GB at 4G) + (3 lines unlimited text, 500 minutes each). Same price for 3 lines. Same price regardless if you bought any phone. Yes, you still will need to sign 2 years contract, even without buying smartphones, because of special/value t-mobile is giving you.

Will rep for useful information. I feel generous today

"I got mine" = great deal, you snooze you lose.
"I didn't get mine" = scummy SDers...didn't wait for me.
Does any one know if this pricing is going to be there for 2 more months since my contract with AT&T expires in August end.
Also I am not sure if I folks are still get Samsung SIII for $380 or so in Costco.
Also can I start the paln now and then port my number after 2 months ? Also can I start with 2 or 3 lines and increase later ?
This plan is supposed to be good through November 13th, 2012. I would wait, and start in 2 months. I think the s3 deal is mostly dead or YMMV at this point, due to the 3rd party retailer. How many lines do you need s3's on? You can start with 2 or 3 lines and increase them later up until November 13th. Just keep in mind it will extend your contract by 2 years from the extension date, so if you think you need 5 lines, get 5...Call AT&T and see if they prorate etf's, it might be worth it to switch early. I am not familiar with AT&T, thank goodness!
Where are u located? How do you like t-mobile so far? How is your coverage? Any noticeable difference between AT&T and t-mobile service?
Thanks for feedback. Added more option in OP.
I like t-mobile a lot so far. I haven't had very knowledgeable people when I called support about billing, but at least they were nice and patient (similar to ATT except ATT people were a little more knowledgeable).
I'm in the Bay Area (San Francisco area). Service has been noticeably BETTER (fewer dropped calls, faster data service) everywhere except within San Francisco city limits (which was already pretty bad on ATT, but on T-mobile we've only used 2G so far). I'm going to test San Francisco 4G next week to see if it's any better than the 2G service. I drive around and talk to people on speaker phone and have had generally less issues than with ATT.
Maybe part of this is just network congestion- I imagine it's much worse on ATT than T-mobile right now.
TCall AT&T and see if they prorate etf's, it might be worth it to switch early. I am not familiar with AT&T, thank goodness!
They do. I just paid $500 total in fees on 2 iphones to leave AT&T behind. I have been without a cell for almost a month, which makes my loss recoup that much faster. It will only take a few months to get the rest back in monthly savings. Totally worth it.
I was with AT&T since 2002. They didn't really care that I wanted to go elsewhere, made it that much easier for me.
