T-Mobile's New Prepaid Plan Starts at Just $3 Per Month

by Fox Van Allen on August 12, 2014

T-Mobile $50 Prepaid CardT-Mobile announced today that, starting August 17, it will offer a brand new pay-as-you-go wireless plan starting at just $3 per month.

With the T-Mobile Pay as You Go plan, each minute of talk and text costs a flat rate of $0.10. The plan carries a minimum monthly charge of $3, which buys your first 30 texts of minutes. And because the plan is pre-paid, no credit checks or deposit are required.

The base plan doesn’t include data, but it does offer the option to buy daily and weekly 4G LTE data passes. You can purchase a 500MB day pass for $5 or a 1GB seven-day pass for $10.

News of T-Mobile’s new offering comes just a day after Virgin Mobile introduced a similar pay-for-what-you-use plan on the Sprint Network. Called Virgin Mobile Custom, the plan offers a minimum of 20 minutes of talk, 20 texts and no data for $6.98 per month, with the ability to modify your allotments on a per-line basis.

For more on the new T-Mobile Pay as You Go plan, visit the website or stop in a T-Mobile store starting August 17.

T-mobile has always had the best prepaid plans. I had nearly $100 prepaid credit about to expire, then switched to this plan. I get free lifeline service, but I also just added another $36 to my prepaid even though I don’t use the phone. I just want to keep the plan and the phone number I’ve had for years now. The option to get 1 gb of data for 7 days is outstanding for someone like me.
