It's hard to believe this year has flown by so quickly. It seems like it was recently that T-Mobile announced their new Uncarrier plans that do away with subsidized contracts in favor of device payment plans. However, it was actually 8 months ago in March when they announced this "new" concept in mobile for the United States. Because of this long stretch of time it was easy to forget some of the details. For example, even though T-Mobile's new Uncarrier plans effectively eliminated their classic subsidized plans in their own retail stores, T-Mo was still offering their classic plans through third party retail outlets like Walmart, Best Buy, Target and more. That too is about to change.

Starting November 1st, T-Mobile will be shutting down their classic plans at third party retailers as well. This means that at all retail locations, whether it is a third party or a T-Mo store, you will only be able to get one of their new Uncarrier plans. Here's a refresh of their new plans,
  • $50 a month – unlimited talk, text 500MB of 4G (2G speeds once limit is reached)
  • $60 a month – unlimited talk, text, 2.5GB of 4G (2G speeds once limit is reached)
  • $70 a month – unlimited everything (no throttle)

Here's a quote with a final few details,

3rd party retailers will begin sending their post-paid devices back to HQ, with support for device exchanges and buyers remorse to be handled at the wherever the device was originally purchased. It will be interesting to see what T-Mobile has up their sleeves. We know they aren’t going to leave partners like Walmart hanging for very long.
