      • So, below is what the website has, I currently have the Simple Choice Plan: Unlimited Talk + Text.   Obviously, I see the Mexico & Canada coverage and the 2GB of Data versus 1 GB, but the North AMerican Plan says 120+ countries while the my current plan says 140+ .....what are the 20 countries left out?   I travel a lot internationally, so it matters to me!   Also, my plan states $.20/minute while the other says nothing?

          This could depend on when you started your Simple Choice plan. There's a small paragraph that explains the differences with the Simple Choice plans based on when a customer signed up on our The specified item was not found. page.

            There have been several changes in the last few months:

            The number of countries has been increasing.  Several were added just in Sept.  (One was Monenegro 7 days after we were there and spent about $15 for a 4 minute call.)  Maybe some of the various subsidiary mentions of the total countries hasn't been changed.

            Basic hi-speed data incl. has doubled from 1G to 2G.

            For some dumb reason, if you are on plan that was established more than a few weeks ago -- you have to contact CS and ask them to add "NA Plan".   NO price change.  Those on the regular post paid Simple Plan have always had intl. roaming to 120 (now 140) countries included.

              What is confusing is - TM uses the same names to describe different plans.  They call various pre-paid plans "Simple".

              The basic plan costs $50+$30+10+10 is you have 4 lines and now includes all I mentioned above.

              I had a similar issue a couple of years ago when the Simple Choice North American Plan sprung up.... i was on the Simple Choice Plan and I was thinking adding the new Simple Choice North American Plan to my account was the best thing.... Having the updated T-Mobile Plan I thought was the best thing to get, I was wrong (in my case). Because when i clicked on the button to add the  Simple Choice North American Plan, the system was preparing to remove me from my previous plan (PLAN CHANGE) in which unfortunately would remove my Family Stateside International Plan that allows all of the voice lines on my account to have the ability to call internationally for only $10 per month. So if i had made the change and if i had wanted the International Calling Feature under the new Simple Choice North American Plan, i would then have to pay $15 per voice line as opposed to $10 for all voice lines. It was a no brainer to stick with what i had. And currently i have 5 voice lines all with the ability to call international for only $10 per month vs paying $75 dollars a month ($15 each per line) Im not a genius but im also no dummy lol
