T-Mobile to sunset Classic plans at retail partners starting in November

As many of you already know, T-Mobile has done away with phone subsidies through its website and retail locations. Partner such as Walmart and Best Buy, however, have been able to continue offering the Classic plans with signed contracts. A leaked T-Mobile document shows the carrier hanging up on these plans starting November 1.

Effective yesterday, September 30, retailers around the country were directed to return postpaid inventory back to the carrier. Both retail and the branded outlets are expected to allow for exchanges within a 30 day period provided the customer brings the original receipt with them.


Looking ahead, T-Mobile is expected to announce the third phase of its Uncarrier strategy. Rumors suggest the wireless provider might do away with up-front deposits and/or provide refurbished devices in stores.
