T-Mobile, the self-proclaimed “UNcarrier” that is shaking the wireless industry up with some big and bold moves to attract new customers, seems to be readying up another big move soon. According to several independent rumors from TmoNews and HowardForums, T-Mobile is apparently getting ready to migrate all of their customers to their new Simple Choice plans by the end of this year.
The language in T-Mobile’s leaked letter suggests you only have two choices — accept the new plans, or get out of your contract without a fee. If true, this will be one of the fastest deaths of grandfathered plans or features we’ve ever seen. But who wouldn’t want to get on T-Mobile’s new awesome plans?
According to the letter, T-Mobile will be giving users a 3-4 month grace period for deciding whether they want to go through with it, which should be ample time to consider all the positives and negatives. Ask yourself, though — if you’ve stuck with T-Mobile for this long, are you really willing to switch now?
People I know with Simple Choice seem to love it, but we’d understand it if some of you aren’t comfortable with giving up a long-standing account that might have some invaluable features T-Mobile no longer offers to new customers. We’ll be looking to drag a response out of T-Mobile to see if there’s any truth to this rumor. In the meantime, let us know if you’d be down with switching to Simple Choice in the comments section below.
