T-Mobile planning to launch data-only plans, leaked document reveals

Ricky, 29 March, 2016

Slowly, but surely, more and more customers are becoming always connected with a smartphone and getting rid of your phone number is going the way of the cable cutters. According to a leaked document sent to TmoNews, T-Mobile plans to launch new data-only plans for smartphones and tablets starting at $20 per month for 2GB.

Ever since data became the staple that carriers sell to its customers, rather than offering a small fee for unlimited access, data is becoming the main product being sold with phone calls free of limits through all carriers in the US.

The document says T-Mobile wants to offer its customers the freedom to use their device however they want to, even if they don’t want to buy a voice line for a smartphone, customers should be able to do so.

These plans will be available for all GSM enabled devices including smartphones. The pricing breaks down as follows:

  • 2GB = $20
  • 6GB = $35
  • 10GB = $50
  • 14GB = $65
  • 18GB = $80
  • 22GB = $95

The document also says these plans are not eligible for the $10 Automatic Mobile Internet Discount. Also, older BlackBerry devices that rely on BlackBerry’s Enterprise Server connection would not be able to access such services with these data-only plans. According to the same leak, T-Mobile plans to launch such plans tomorrow, March 30.

We’ll see what T-Mobile is up to tomorrow, there will likely be some kind of press release along with the new alleged plans.
