T-Mobile wants to get rid of the clutter
has been introducing many changes lately as part of its
, but one eyebrow-raising change taking place outside of the Un-carrier scope is the death of many grandfathered rate plans.
, T-Mobile is sending letters out to certain customers with grandfathered rate plans to let them know about the expiration of various older plans. In one such letter, a customer was told that their grandfathered plan would be terminated in November and that a new plan had already been selected for them.
Below is a scanned version of the letter from
It's not clear if all customers with grandfathered plans will receive this letter or not, but a T-Mobile spokesperson did confirm that the company plans to kill many older plans to make T-Mobile's system less complicated.
"Maintaining thousands of rate plans is the norm in the industry, but we think it creates unnecessary complexity," said a T-Mobile spokesperson. "Simple is better, which is why we’re reducing the number of older plans in our systems. We’re giving customers on these plans the opportunity to choose a plan that best meets their needs. For the vast majority, their plan will provide similar or better features at a comparable price."
If customers are unhappy with their new plans, they can cancel them by February without customary penalty.

Thier newer plans are better/cheaper.
Instead of losing me, I switched from a individual plan to a family plan with 3 lines. It's cheaper than separate prepaid smart phone lines.

Yes the newer plans are cheaper and better. Much much cheaper and much much better.
I just switched from verizon. I used to pay $83 a month for 1 line. Now I pay ~100 a month for 5 lines with unlimited talk, text and data. Its $110 but i have the 15% military discount.
