Data Passes

Data passes let you temporarily add high-speed data by the day or week, whenever you need it to supplement your free data or to top-up a recurring data plan. Pricing varies based on the pass you want to add.

 

 

About data passes

Sometimes you want to add some extra to your existing plan and that's where data passes come in. We've got various pass types, such as international and HD video that can help you out for a number of reasons, such as:

 

  • You're roaming internationally and you want a higher data speed.
  • You want the ability to stream HD video for 24 hours on the T-Mobile ONE or Magenta line by turning off video optimization
  • You're experiencing reduced data speeds after reaching your data allotment.

 

Follow the Add data pass steps below to see what passes are available for your plan (pass types may vary by plan). Additional passes can be purchased as needed once a purchased pass expires.
