T-Mobile is currently offering four-line cellphone plans with talk, text and data for $30 per line.
The offer started Wednesday and is available for a limited amount of time that is unspecified in T-Mobile’s announcement.
It offers a total savings of $20 per month for a family of four compared with T-Mobile’s Simple Choice with Family Match plan, according to the publicly traded company.
The new offer comes with:
- Unlimited talk
- Unlimited text
- 6 GB of “Un-carrier Data” per line on T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network
If you need more than four lines, each additional line costs $20 and comes with the same three features.
T-Mobile refers to its data as “Un-carrier Data” because its data plans differ from those of other companies.
T-Mobile allows customers to hold unused data for up to a year, and it does not count video or music streaming from apps like Netflix, YouTube, Pandora or Spotify against customers’ data allowances.
This offer is available to new and existing customers. To take advantage of it, visit a T-Mobile store or call 844-222-1927.
Before you ditch one mobile company for another, though, consider all pros and cons, not just monetary savings.
In its recent rundown of plans offered by the four major carriers, Consumer Reports called T-Mobile’s plans “only slightly cheaper” than those of AT&T and Verizon.
The nonprofit noted that T-Mobile plans are advantageous if you stream a lot, as streamed music and video content does not count against your data allowance.
T-Mobile plans are disadvantageous, however, if you want a data-sharing plan, which enables you to share your data allowance with other people who have cellphones on your plan. T-Mobile does not offer any data-sharing plans, according to Consumer Reports.
