T-Mobile giveth, and T-Mobile taketh away. News coming down from T-Mobile enthusiast blog TmoNews suggests that the apple of AT&T’s eye has decided to cancel its “Even More Plus” plan, which never even got off the ground. T-Mobile intended to launch two promotional unlimited plans this week — Even More and Even More Plus — but the Plus plan was apparently cancelled with no explanation. T-Mobile has informed retail locations that they should not offer the plan to customers even if it has already appeared in their systems. Both the $79.99 Even More and the $59.99 Even More Plus plans offered unlimited voice calling, unlimited messaging and unlimited data — with a 2GB soft cap and throttling thereafter — but Even More was for postpaid subscribers while Even More Plus could be had by month-to-month customers. Alas, T-Mobile subscribers will now need a contract in order to get Even More. More →
Here’s a bit of good news for those folks who want to take advantage of Verizon’s new LTE data service but are a little leery of two-year contracts. Verizon has confirmed to BGR that the 5GB and 10GB LTE plans announced yesterday, which retail for $50 and $80 respectively, will be available on a month-to-month basis for the same price. Users interested in the contract-free option will be required to purchase their LTE equipment at its full-retail price — currently, Verizon’s two data sticks cost $249 unsubsidized — and, like the on-contract plans, overages will be billed at $10 per gigabyte. Sounds like a pretty good deal to us. What do you think?
