Pay in Advance (Prepaid) plans

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

     

     

     

    Pay in Advance Monthly Plans

    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 to keep you informed of your account status. The plan includes caller ID, call waiting, and Web Guard.

     

    Simply Prepaid™ plan

    With Simply Prepaid from T-Mobile, you get 4G LTE data, unlimited talk, and unlimited text for as little as $40 per month. Simply Prepaid includes Wi-Fi Calling, in-flight texting, and visual voicemail. Plus, with unlimited data, you'll never see data overage fees.

     

    Simply Prepaid doesn't include Smartphone Mobile Hotspot (tethering), free international texting, or free music streaming through Music Freedom.

    Pay As You Go

    Here's a simple way to stay connected: Pay As You Go! This is perfect if you only make a small number of calls or texts each month. The plan includes caller ID, 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 GoLegacy

    (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, timeframe, and other information, see a list of Short codes.

    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 do not 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 1-day, 7-day, or 30-day increments. Or, you can set up a recurring Monthly Data Pass, with speeds between 500 MB and 13 GB. For more information, read about T-Mobile's Pay In Advance Mobile Internet plans. Domestic roaming, international roaming, and tethering are not available with Pay in Advance Mobile Internet data passes.
