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 →
T-Mobile myFaves, Verizon Friends and Family, and AT&T A-List be damned — Sprint’s “Any Mobile, Anytime” is now the affordable plan to beat. For only $69.99 per month, Anytime offers up unlimited minutes to any US-based mobile in addition to unlimited data, SMS, MMS, Sprint TV, GPS navigation and more. The catch? You only get 45o minutes of good old fashioned land line calling. If that rubs you the wrong way, Sprint will be more than happy to take another $30 off your hands and bump you up to the truly unlimited Simply Everything, which of course will afford unlimited, well, everything. So is this the “wireless revolution” Sprint promised to premier customers yesterday? We’re not sure about that, but it is most definitely a plan no other major carrier can come close to matching for the time being. So for that, Sprint, we applaud you. Golf claps.
AT&T today announced the imminent introduction of its A-List calling feature, intended to compete with T-Mobile’s myFaves and Verizon Wireless’s Friends and Family calling. The service will afford individual subscribers unlimited calls to five domestic phone numbers of their choosing, mobile or land line, and FamilyTalk plans will get 10 numbers. Individual Nation plans priced $59.99 and higher, and FamilyTalk plans priced $89.99 and higher will automatically have access to the A-List calling feature when it launches on September 20th, and customers will be able to manage their A-Lists at www.att.com/alist. Unlimited calling to five domestic numbers and Rollover minutes? Apparently the ante just got upped.
