You can amp up the standard T-Mobile ONE experience by adding T-Mobile ONE Plus to your line for an additional cost. Add ONE Plus to all your talk & text lines and get a discount for your family (plan change to T-Mobile ONE w/ONE Plus Military required).
Here's what you get with ONE Plus in addition to all your T-Mobile ONE benefits listed above:
- A variety of optional add-ons are available, such as family controls, stateside international calling, and HD Video passes that can be added to enhance your video streaming.
Maximum of 12 voice lines per postpaid T-Mobile ONE Military account, based on credit class approval.
You'll lose any free/discounted add-a-line offers, and the plan is not eligible for Hookup, Advantage Reward Card, aggregate volume discounts, employee discounts, or Business Family Discounts.
- This plan is not for extended international use; you must reside in the U.S. and primary usage must occur on our network. With Simple Global, standard international speeds are approximately 128Kbps and usage may be taxed in some countries. Deployed Active Duty overseas? Let us know and we can help.

If you've already signed up for T-Mobile ONE Military or are interested in adding it, you'll need to verify your military service status. You will have 45 days from activation to verify your military status or your account will be moved to T-Mobile ONE with no military discount which will result in a price increase of up to $20 per line.
If you sign up in-store, we can help you with verification on the spot (in some cases you will need documentation to complete verification). If you're making the change over the phone and still need to verify, you can follow the steps below:
- Go to https://my.t-mobile.com/profile or open the T-Mobile app and log in.
- On My T-Mobile, choose Profile from the top right menu. In the app, click More and then Profile Settings.
- Select Military Verification.
- Select your Military Status and enter any required information into the form for the military person on the account or the registered family member if selecting Gold Star.
- Click Submit Information.
- If no further documentation is needed, verification will show completed and you will receive a text confirmation within 48 hours
- If the credentials cannot be verified, you will be asked to upload documentation (listed below) that proves you are serving or have served.
- After documentation has been received, you will receive an email response within 24 hours.
T-Mobile will accept numerous forms of verification based on military branch and status as show in the list below.
- In most cases, only one form of verification document is required for submission, unless you have a special situation (such as if your name has changed since your military service).
- Other documents that clearly show your first & last name, valid dates, branch and/or status may also be accepted.
- If the name on your document(s) does not match your current legal name (such as Marriage or Name Change) you must submit additional documentation (Change of Name, Marriage Certificate, etc.) with your form, or acquire a new copy of the document with your current name for us to verify your military affiliation.
- Any sensitive information such as Social Security Number, Military ID Number, etc. should be omitted, covered up, or blacked out when submitting.

Why does the Military person need to be the primary account holder? What if they are deployed?
To verify that the military member is on the account, they must be the primary account holder. This also protects them from fraudulent use of their name for the purpose of gaining military benefits (a name can only be used once for validation and we wouldn’t want you to miss out on this amazing deal!). In the case of active duty military members who are deployed, the military member’s spouse or family member may verify eligibility so the military member does not need to be the primary account holder, but additional documentation will be necessary to verify status.
What if I have a son/daughter that is serving in the military. Do I qualify for the plan?
If your son/daughter is active duty military, has a line on your account, and is either the authorized user or identified on your account at the line level you will be able to move to the T-Mobile ONE Military plan. When you verify your son/daughter’s military status using the steps above, you will be asked to upload his or her Active Duty documents.
What does T-Mobile do with the information I submit to validate my military status/validation?
The information provided is used solely for validation of status and is destroyed after validation.
What if I need extra lines for my Tablets or Wearable devices?
If you need data-only lines for other connected devices, standard T-Mobile ONE for Tablets & Wearables and other Mobile Internet plans are available to add alongside your T-Mobile ONE Military voice lines.
