Maybe you don’t need a cellular connection, so T-Mobile introduced a new plan that includes only unlimited talk and text.
The difference between this plan and the One plan is data. You won’t be able to connect to T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network or even its 3G network. Anything you want to do outside of calling and texting will require a Wi-Fi network. You’ll still be able to take advantage of MMS, VoLTE, and Wi-Fi Calling. T-Mobile just won’t let you enjoy its fast, reliable magenta-colored network in any other way.
It’s an offering priced at $25 per line per month with taxes and fees included. Also, T-Mobile included a few benefits that are commonly found in the One plan. Both core features extend to Mexica and Canada, and you can text other countries from the United States at no extra cost. Then, when you’re outside of the U.S., T-Mobile will have Simple Global pricing in effect.
New and existing customers are eligible, but you can’t combine the new plan with a family plan. Prepaid customers and those who signed up without a credit check are also ineligible.
While taking away data to lower the cost, the carrier is maintaining a pretty decent value here. If you do need data on another device, T-Mobile will let you have that through a tablet. So you’re not necessarily completely locked out of getting data.
T-Mobile’s new Unlimited Talk & Text Only plan began rolling out nationwide this week.
