As if you might need another reason to consider switching to T-Mobile for your wireless service, the “Un-Carrier” today announced two more features for its customers.
For starters, T-Mobile is bringing back the contract; except it isn’t. Dubbed the “Un-contract” it’s T-Mobile’s way of saying it won’t change things on you. Formally, and informally, T-Mobile agrees that they will not raise rates on customers or adjust promotions on you. That is, unless, they want to drop prices on you, which they assume is going to be okay with you.
As part of this commitment, customers on existing Simple Choice promotional plans − like the Un-carrier’s ultra-popular 4 lines for $100 with up to 10 GB of 4G LTE data − can keep them for as long as they’re T-Mobile customers. And, if you have an unlimited 4G LTE plan, you can rest assured your rates won’t change for a minimum of two years.
The Un-contract automatically starts on March 22 for all existing T-Mobile Simple Choice customers and does not cost anything.
Today sees T-Mobile announcing “Carrier Freedom”, an initiative designed to make it much easier for you to break your contract with another provider. Indeed, T-Mobile will pay off whatever it is you owe on an existing equipment installation plan – to the tune of $650 per line up to 10 lines. Yes, this also means those leasing programs that we’re seeing pop up across other providers, too. And, yes, that’s on top of paying early termination fees, too.
According to T-Mobile, there are 29 million people currently stuck in an equipment plan. Businesses with more than 10 lines can also take get in on the love with with bill credits up to $100 per line after the 10th line.
