    They changed their plans and I can't find it on the site anymore. Is that plan gone?
    Cell Phone Plans | Cheap Cell Phone Plans & Unlimited Data | T-Mobile

    The old url: prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/monthly-4g-plans

    Will they let everyone with that plan keep it?

    EDIT: I found it at the bottom as one line of unclickable text: Prepaid Cell Phone Plans, No Annual Contract | Monthly 4G | T-Mobile

    No, you have to look for the "Pay in Advance" link and then click on "Compare Our Plans." It's pretty buried, but it's still there.

    Trying to figure this out is making my head spin. I can't really tell what is going on and which plan is which. My options in My Tmobile have changed also. If you don't have to pay taxes, the new pricing is actually better (if I am reading everything correctly).

    That link you gave is not showing the same plans. The $50 and $60 plans have changed.

    The plan still exists but isn't really advertised as I'm guessing it isn't as profitable for T-Mobile as the other plans.

    Not the same plan. $30 and $70 are the same, but data has increased for the $50 and $60 price tiers. T-mobile has removed the "No Contract Monthly 4G" moniker also.

    Still there. Helped a friend get this plan on her phone about an hour ago. She can deal with the 100 minutes because she texts more than anything.

    A few weeks ago, on the old page describing the plans, they specified that the $30/100 min plan was for new activations only and only available at t-mobile.com or walmart.com . I don't see that verbiage here (or maybe it's buried in the fine print that my bifocals can't quite decipher ). I wonder if that's an oversight or if they are going to make that plan available in stores? Or for non-new activations. Not that either affect me; just thought it was interesting. Or maybe they now have this plan buried so deeply on the website that not that many people would know about it anyhow.

    BTW, I wonder how popular this plan is? I mean I see a lot of people here using it. And it is a great plan for me because I don't make many phone calls. But, judging from the people I see driving and shopping, they spend their lives talking on the phone so it wouldn't work for them. Hopefully it's popular enough that they keep it, but not so popular that it costs them $.

    He didn't ask about the $50 and $60 plans, he asked about the $30 plan.

    As above, I did see they are offering a little more of some of the plans with data speed caps. I also noticed this yesterday when I logged into my account. Instead of the $50 plan capping 4G data at 100MB, it's now 500MB. They also announced the new plans along with the iPhone 5 coming to their network.

    T-Mobiles new Simple Choice Plan starts with a base rate of $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and Web with 500MB of 4G data.3 Consumers can add 2GB of 4G data for $10 per month per line or get unlimited 4G data for an additional $20 per month per line. Customers can add a second phone line for $30 per month, and each additional line is just $10 per month. There are no caps and no overages.

    Looking at this in more detail, I'm going to switch from Prepaid to one of these plans. I can get 4 lines with unlimited everything (2.5GB 4G speeds) for $140 bucks. Right now, I'm paying $140 for 4 prepaid plans. The $30 100MIN plan x 3 and the $50 unlimited (100MB 4G) and the 1500 MIN plan 30MB data. I'll come out at the same price and all lines will be unlimited everything.

    Do you think you will have to pay taxes on top of your projected $140?

    I get the same warning as I got a week ago if I try to change the plan in My T-mobile account. It is the same pop-up as before, so at least for now it looks like it is still a one shot deal that you lose if you change. Here is the pop up:

    You have a promotional plan active on your account.

    That was a one-time promotion, and was only active during plan activation.

    You can continue with your new plan by clicking Yes but you wont be able to change back to your current plan at a later date.
    You can keep your current plan by clicking Cancel.

    Does anyone know if that's tied to ESM/IMEI or only the SIM?

    Yes I do think taxes will be added. But I'll take that to have unlimited everything for all.

    $30 for 100 minutes unlimited text and data, but capped at 5GB is a perfect plan. Just port over your old number to Google voice and use talkatone or forward your calls. And you have unlimited everything for 30 bucks a month . Plus if you wanted more minutes it's only 15 bucks for 150 minutes still cheaper than 110 a month. But my company pays for my phone so this doesn't apply to me. I would do this in a heartbeat if I didn't have that luxury.

    If I go on their website and select the SIM kit, the cheapest plan available is the $50 single line. It looks like you would have to order the SIM kit by itself, then when it arrives maybe you can activate it with the $30 plan.

    When you get the sim, you go to the website and at the bottom of the main page, is the activate phone link. Click it and when you go to activate your phone and sim, you will be able to choose the $30 plan. It's there.

    NexusGirlX, silly question: Can I buy micro Sim card locally?
    I started with the $60 prepaid plan while I didn't know about the $30 prepaid plan. I called T-M'e 8 days after I signed papers first time with T-M'e and was told to wait till the month goes by. I went to T-MB'e store and bought $30 code couple of days before expiration of prepaid limit. I was told at first I can't do it; however, after sales rep talked to supervisor I was told to wait 3 days past prepaid cycle, which is today.
    Today I was told I can't do it and to go to Walmart and to buy another phone pack to get the prepaid $30 100 minutes 5GB unlimited text.
    I am worried that I will loose my over 13 years old used cell number while my T-Mb'e account is gone. What should I do? I don't have money to throw out of the window. Thanks

    So the plan still exists in Walmart, but with a cell purchase.

    Only thing is call forwarding does not work on prepaid. It's a pain to get google voice working correctly on the phone IF your SIM number is the same number you are using for google voice. Can't even my voicemail to google voice. And if you port your number to google voice then you can't get MMS there. So you have to give up something somewhere to use the $30 plan LOL. I just settled on giving up google voice for now and use tmobile visual voicemail. In a couple months, I may switch to Solavei so I can use the same network for $49 unlimited everything including call forwarding. I can't do it now because I have a $100 balance from a promo on my account and I'm not losing it LOL.

    The $30 plan is still there but I just don't think existing users can select it. New users signing up online or Walmart.

    I was able to signup for the $30 plan yesterday. Website made it clear it was for new activations only. However even though I activated the plan I still haven't paid for it (because I still have quite a bit of credit on AT&T.) Just wanted to make sure I got it in case the plan disappeared after the announcement. Does anyone know how long I can go without paying before they cancel my activation?

    It's a 100 minute plan designed for SMS & data users who don't talk much. That's what they expect people to give up. If someone needs unlimited minutes, tmo sells other plans for that.

    There are tricks to use VOIP instead of air time but, like you said, most require you to give up something else. That doesn't bother me. If somebody wants to kludge a way around restrictions, I think it's cool if it works but I'm not going to feel sorry for them if it doesn't.

    It's like towing a trailer with a Prius. If it works OK for them that's great, but if not...
