wow, leaked info and rate plan sheets. All over blogs.
All I have to say is if this is true then...pathetic.
t-mobile hasn't learned anything. These plans are not game changing. It's a huge deal and huge serect, and this is it? Ha!
They still haven't moved past there "get more" thinking. If anything, these new plans will make it easier for other carriers to pick off t-mobile customer, because some will be on the no contract.
One thing that has me thinking....this will greatly effect me the next time I upgrade to a blackberry. Right now i'm on the loyalty ($49.99) with the BIS ($19.99) and unlimited txt ($14.99). ($84.94/mo total). Since I am on the old BIS $20 plan, if I were to upgrade to a BB, they would require me to drop the $20 BIS and $15 unlimited txt plan and hop on the $34.99 unlimited web & txt plan, which is no biggie because its practically the same thing (ok $0.01 more).
However, come Oct 25th, and new plans. More than likely, that $34.99 unlimited web & txt plan will be gone. So....does that mean i'm required to sign switch to the rumored $99 unlimited plan and pay more?!?
Or I can go off contract and pay $79.99 but full price for the phone, which I might do. Thing is many people might find this a good deal. So now you got all these customers off contract. Quite honestly it will be an easy picking of tmo customers especially if they roll into sprint or something and see a phone they like really like. Go back to t-mobile.
So this is there plan to get them out of 4th place? Please....I love t-mobile, i've been with them since 2003, but this is a joke. Out of 4th place and past sprint? No way. If anything all this is going to do is make t-mobile more money (nothing wrong with that), but to move them out of 4th place? Not a chance. Few things can happen, either this has no effect on number of subscribers, but make more money: or less subscribers, make more money. At best, i think they might gain 1 or 2million customers that they'll steal from MetroPCS
I really thought the whole idea was to gain more customers and move past 4th place? Instead, I think they made there job harder. I'm not saying the plans are so horrible where people will jump ship (though some have expressed they will cause of the rumored plans). But t-mobile is leaving themselves open for other carriers pick off t-mobile customers who take the no contract options. Basically, now they need a heck of a good reason to convince customers to stay.
