    Hey T-Moble Hey T=Moble

    I don't really see a savings on your plans.
    You still have to buy a phone...like a galaxy...and pay $20 per month for 2 years.

    Where's the beef??

    • Bought a galaxy s IV for 629.99 off the T-Mobile web site, switched over from verizon and saving 50 a month almost the same deal! Verizon bill = $98/ month for Droid compared to T-Mobile that is $56/ month. I'll do some math for you in case you are not smart enough to do that, but for 2 years which equals 24 months (12 months in a year) so $98 * 24 = $2352. T-Mobile is $56 * 24 = $1344. $2352 - $1344 = $1008 - $629 for phone = $379 saving over two years, plus I got a new phone. Before you make a post such as yours, KNOW YOUR FACTS.... :)

      Sentiment: Hold

    • The "beef" is that once your phone is paid off, your monthly fee reflects that. In other words, with a T-Mobile plan, once you've paid off that $480 over two years, you bill drops by $20/mo. With a subsidised phone plan (Verizon) the monthly phone payment is part of the monthly fee, forever. The Verizon-style "early termination fee" is an attempt for them to recoup the subsidised phone payments. T-Mobile is just more upfront about what their cancellation fee represents (whatever you still owe on the device). If you were to buy the same phone at similar levels of service on both providers, T-Mobile will be a lot less expensive in the long run.

    • Never heard of T-Moble. Did you check on Verizzzonn or ATTT&T? I'm with Spirit.
