T-Mobile's new Simple Starter plan offers unlimited talk, text and 500MB data for $40 per month T-Mobile, in their ongoing efforts to turnaround the U.S. carrier market, has offered a new plan for budget-conscious consumers.
The new "Simple Starter" plan offers unlimited text, talk and 500MB of 2G/3G/4G data for just $40 per month. The data is a strong cap, unlike T-Mobile's other plans which offer unlimited data but the speeds are throttled to 2G after the stated amount.

If you reach 500MB, you will be prompted to purchase additional data via a day or week pass, but you will not be able to use any more mobile data.

Besides the cap, there are a few more limitations, as well. The Simple Starter cannot be added to family plans, and you will not have access to T-Mobile's new, free global roaming and international texting. You can, however, use the Jump program for quicker handset upgrades, and the plan also qualifies for zero down interest-free financing like T-Mobile's other plans.

T-Mobile is the worst service available. Example ... I often go to Poughkeepsie NY on the Taconic State Parkway. With T-Mobile I only had disgusting "E" (EDGE) service for most of the ride. Now with AT&T I have 4G LTE throughout the entire trip. Forget T-Mobile !

It is very dependant on where you are... In San Diego I never fall below 4G service and usually it is constantly 4g LTE.

Oh PIPE DOWN!

Bitching about cell service is sooo old! Tmobile rocks in the Chicagoland region, Phoenix metro, Tampa area, etc etc. Sucks in boatload of other spaces too. BUT SO DO ATT AND VERIZON AND SPRINT! Sprint being the worst, Verizon sucks in Bolingbrook, IL. Sucks so many other spots. Same things for ATT. As a tech, I pay attention and see it all all the time.

If you don't get signal strength there then it's absolutely logical and expected that you'll go to another company. Unless you're in the sticks and ya got nothin. So quit s-talking Tmo because your particular area is weak. I bet they let you out of contract free and clear and said "thanks" to a painless situation.
