It's amazing when....

A carrier finally gets what customers want. T-Mobile figured out that the key to gaining customers is NOT ripping them off or continually finding subtle new ways to screw them out of benefits/service.

I switched from sprint. I pay 50$ a month for Unlimited calls/txts/2.5 GB of 4G with free hotspot.

Let's hope the other carriers follow suit and the market gets much more competitive. Way to go T-Mobile, thank you.

This is exactly what I love about T-Mobile, they are giving the customer what they want. They are getting out of the phone plus service business and into the service only business.

This allows a customer to buy a $150 Nokia Lumia off the street and spend $50 for unlimited everything. Cheap, reliable entry into the smartphone world.

A huge plus that you mentioned that most people don't notice is the free hotspot! Great addition to this revamped program.


Nice article, but confusing statement

Not really. They are two different things. Meager is in terms of the quantity of iphone 5's sold as a single figure, wheras relatively competitive is in terms of how many iphone 5's were sold compared to other carriers.

Their new in-store plans are some of the most fair out there. Switched from ATT after having been with them since before the Cingular buyout.
