Pay in Advance (Prepaid) plans

    T-Mobile has different types of Pay in Advance (Prepaid) plans to fit your needs.

     

     

    Simple Choice monthly plan

    This rate plan provides 30 days of service, and there's no monthly billing cycle. Your plan automatically renews if funds are available in your account balance to cover both the rate plan price and the cost of any features. Plus, you'll get free text messages from us as reminders to keep you informed of your account status.

     

    Plans start at $50/month for 2 GB of data on your smartphone. For an additional cost, you can get 6, 10, and 14 GB, or unlimited 4G LTE data on your smartphone. These plans include:

     

    • Unlimited nationwide talk.
    • Unlimited domestic and international text.
    • Unlimited 4G LTE data on your smartphone.
      Note: Data slows to 2G once your data limit is reached.
    • 200 MB of domestic data roaming.
    • Music Freedom lets you stream as much music as you want on your smartphone from top streaming services without using your data.
    • Binge On™ provides optimized streaming of detectable video at DVD-quality (480p+) for mobile viewing. For plans with more than 3 GB of 4G LTE data, streaming from participating Binge On video streaming services doesn't count toward your high-speed data allotment.
      Note: You may disable Binge On at any time, but you'll lose Binge On benefits. Not available on certain BlackBerry devices/plans.
    • Smartphone Mobile HotSpot (tethering): Share your phone's Internet connection with up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
      Note: Data slows to up to 2G speeds for the balance of the service period once your data limit is reached. Unlimited 4G LTE data option includes 14 GB tethering.

     

    Note: If you're on our older $35/month plan for unlimited talk and text, these plans do not include: International messaging; Smartphone Mobile HotSpot (tethering); unlimited web; Mobile Without Borders benefits, or any of the benefits in the above list.

    Pay As You Go

    Here's a simple way to stay connected: Pay As You Go! This is perfect if you only make or receive a small number of calls or texts each month. The plan includes call waiting and Web Guard.

     

    In August 2014, there was a change in our Pay As You Go plan. If you switch to the current Pay As You Go plan, you won't be able to switch back to the old Pay As You Go–Legacy plan. Here are the differences between the old and current plans:

     

    Pay As You Go
    (If you sign up today)

     

    • Recurring monthly fee of $3 per month.
    • You get a combined total of 30 minutes of calls or text messages per month.
    • Additional outgoing/incoming calls or texts are $0.10 each.
    • Includes nationwide roaming and nationwide long distance while on the T-Mobile network.
    • You can also add optional data passes:
      • 1-day 500 MB data pass for $5
      • 1-week 1 GB data pass for $10
        (this pass is good for 7 days)

    Pay As You Go–Legacy

    (If you signed up before August 17, 2014)

     

    • No recurring monthly fee.
    • No data option.
    • Includes our Gold Rewards.
    • Pay per use.

     

    Pay As You Go is based on a 30-day cycle, regardless of how many days are in each month. Therefore, a new cycle may not necessarily start on the same date each month. To quickly check your remaining account balance, time frame, and other information, see a list of self-service short codes for your prepaid account.

    Pay By the Day

    As of January 25, 2015, the Pay By the Day rate plan is no longer offered. If you're currently on the Pay By the Day plan, you can still continue to use it or switch to a different Prepaid plan. With Pay By the Day, you're only charged on days you use your phone. Your plan includes caller ID, call waiting, and Web Guard.

     

    • Daily Rate Plan charge is for a 24-hour period beginning at midnight and ending at 11:59 p.m.
    • Data Sync will trigger the rate plan daily charge. We suggest turning off data sync (when available) if you don't want it to trigger the daily rate plan charge.

    Pay in Advance Mobile Internet

    Pay in Advance Mobile Internet service allows you to use devices such as laptop sticks, tablets, and mobile HotSpot devices to access data with prepaid service.

     

    Pay in Advance Mobile Internet provides an affordable service for low or occasional use if you're concerned about wanting a credit check. Because this is intended for occasional on-the-go data connections, this service is not recommended as a broadband replacement for home computers.

     

    On Demand and Monthly Data Passes

    You can purchase On Demand data passes for various increments, whether it's hours, days, weeks, or months. Or, you can set up a recurring Monthly Data Pass, with data buckets between 2 GB and 22 GB. For more information, read about T-Mobile's Pay In Advance Mobile Internet plans. Domestic roaming and international roaming (except for Canada and Mexico) are not available with Pay in Advance Mobile Internet data passes.
