T-Mobile announced a new promotion today for its prepaid brand MetroPCS. Available immediately, any new or existing customer that adds a line of service to their account will be eligible to get 4 lines of unlimited talk, text and LTE data for $100/month. All taxes and fees are included in the price.
In addition to the phone plan offering, MetroPCS will also be giving away a free phone to anybody that ports in. The following phones will be available free of charge:
- Alcatel Fierce 4
- Alcatel Fierce A30
- Coolpad Defiant
- LG Aristo
- LG K20 Plus
- Motorola Moto e4
- Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime
- Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime
- ZTE Blade Z Max
- ZTE Avid TRIO
Customers will only be responsible for paying any sales tax that may be associated with each device.
So with the two offers combined, new customers that port in will get unlimited talk, text and LTE data for just $100/month plus four new and free phones.
T-Mobile points out that the same plan with AT&T's prepaid brand Cricket Wireless will cost you $180/month with taxes and fees included. Cricket Wireless is also giving away free phones to port ins.
MetroPCS's promotion also beats an online offering from Sprint's prepaid brand Boost Mobile. A family plan with 4 lines on Boost Mobile is going for $140 with taxes and fees included. Boost Mobile continues to offer free phones to those who port in.
The Fine Print
Like all unlimited data plans, there is a data prioritization policy in effect. Those that consume more than 35 GB of high speed data in a month may notice their data speeds temporarily reduced during times of network congestion.
Video streaming is limited to 480p.
Those that port in with a number that is already active on the T-Mobile network are ineligible for this offer. All new activated lines must stay on the unlimited plan, or everyone loses their promotional pricing.
