Fresh from overtaking AT&T, Verizon and Sprint as the number one wireless provider in the United States, T-Mobile is now revamping its pay-per-use prepaid service. In order to cater to the more budget-conscious users, T-Mobile will offer a flat rate in its Pay as You Go options beginning August 17. By charging a rate of $0.10 per minute for voice calls, T-Mobile is positioning its plan as the most cost-effective pay-as-you-go option from any major carrier in the US.
As for T-Mobile's text messages, each will similarly cost $0.10. In order to keep their texting service active, customers will only need to load $3.00 to their account every month. As an add-on feature, data passes are also offered together with the plan. They will come with options for LTE data access (daily and weekly). A one-day pass is priced at $5.00 and will include 500 megabytes of data. For a seven-day pass with one gigabyte, the cost is $10.00.
T-Mobile's Pay as You Go plans can provide an advantage for customers who only require the occasional cell phone service, due to the fact that the plans don't need credit checks and are contact-free. They may not be ideal for those who prefer extensive voice call or data usage, but they should come in handy when one needs a phone for emergencies or when making occasional calls. Because of this, T-mobile's new plans are expected to compete even with the carrier's own postpaid services.
As of now, T-Mobile's Pay as You Go options are packed with all kinds of inclusions and expiration dates, usually varying depending on how much money is loaded to a particular account. However, they do have the Pay by the Day plan which is relatively straightforward -- customers are charged $3.00 a day and they get to enjoy unlimited calls and texting as well as 200 megabytes of LTE data, plus 2G Internet usage. Those who can do without high speed data can avail of the $2.00 per day option, which offers unlimited calls, texting, and 2G data access.
With regards to T-Mobile's $30.00 per month Pay as You Go plan, it will still be available alongside the new offerings. In this plan, users get 100 minutes of calls, and unlimited texting and data (featuring 5 gigabytes of LTE data).
