Compare "Simple Choice Prepaid" to old "Simple Choice" plans?

rbob

    Even though T-Mobile said that with the introduction of "T-Mobile One" the "Simple Choice" plans would still be available, there's actually only one such plan remaining, with a paltry 2GB of data. I suppose that counts as a "choice," and a really simple one at that, so I'll concede the point.

     

    However, there are still pre-paid plans that appear to be identical to the old Simple Choice plans.

    Other than the pre- versus post-pay financial arrangements, are they actually the same, feature-wise?

        As far as I know the Prepaid plans still do not utilize 100% of the T-Mobile network, and are also subject to deprioritization. After some looking, alot of these plans seem to be slight variances of each other. Please correct me if I'm wrong on any of these points.

         

        Thanks!

          Prepaid lacks free international texting & data, has more limitations on short codes, less effective customer support, and no access to usage logs. Also, if you don't pay your bill on time, you line will be instantly disconnected. Unless you are testing the network for adequate coverage and/or only expect to be with T-Mobile for short time, I recommend a postpaid account.
