T-Mobile is about to launch data-only plans this week, according to a leaked image, which will offer users as much data as they can afford each month in addition to unlimited texting. Who needs actual voice minutes anymore anyway?

An image obtained by TmoNews reveals that the Simple Choice Data-Only plans will be available starting with March 30th. The data-only offer is compatible with GSM devices and is not eligible for the $10 Automatic Mobile Internet Discount.

Pricing tiers start at just $20 for 2GB of data and go up to $95 for 22GB of traffic, as seen in the image above. The pricing structure and buckets are similar to what T-Mobile offers under the Simple Choice Mobile Internet plans.

TmoNews points out that there’s a T-Mobile prepaid plan that offers 5GB of high-speed data, unlimited text messages and 100 minutes of voice for $30 that might be a better offer for customers looking to have some voice minutes to use just in case. On the other hand, if you use VoIP apps for all your communications then you’re probably never really going to need any cellular minutes.
