I saw that, but it didn't really address the auto-migration issue or the concerns many may have about existing line promotions.
This provided a bit more insight.
Definitely not dumb questions ! There are three simple differences with Magenta from T-Mobile ONE:
- A new name,
- 3GB LTE hotspot per line (and unlimited at 3G speeds thereafter)
- Netflix Basic included for families, instead of Netflix Standard.
Everything else stays the same -- same price and same benefits like taxes and fees included, data and texting in 210+ countries and destinations, Gogo inflight, T-Mobile Tuesdays and more. Magenta Plus family plans include all the benefits of the T-Mobile ONE Plus plans and receive Netflix on Us with a Standard Netflix plan, at no additional cost. One Plus customers have the option to change their plan to a Magenta Plus plan if they choose to do so, but we're not forcing you to migrate to a new plan. If you have a promo that requires the T-Mobile One or One Plus plan and you switch to the Magenta Plus plan, you'll lose the promo credits associated.
I am discovering today the Magenta plans.
I actually have 2 lines, T-Mobile One Military, and T-Mobile One Military Plus (option was $10/mo, not $15). SO, a total of $80/mo + $2/mo for Netflix.
My understanding is that switching to Magenta will require having both lines on the PLUS or not. Which mean, in our situation, instead of paying $82/mo, we would pay $100/mo.
Switching to Magenta does not allow you to mix options seems like. All depends what you need. But for the price and service, I will keep the One for now...
We do need the Plus features only on 1 line. So, switching to Magenta is not the best for now.
Adding a line must remain the same, +$10/mo
