"Consumers today are looking for even more value and flexibility from their wireless plans," said John Clelland, senior vice president, marketing, T-Mobile USA.

Combined with an extensive lineup of affordable smartphones, T-Mobile's new Even More unlimited plan allows customers to save more than $350 per year on an unlimited smartphone plan, compared to similar plans from AT&T, Verizon and Sprint1. Customers have the flexibility to purchase any phone in T-Mobile's lineup and sign up for an unlimited rate plan – with or without a contract term commitment.
In contrast to some competing offerings, T-Mobile's new Even More unlimited and Even More Plus unlimited plans enable customers to use mobile data on their smartphones without incurring any overage charges. Consumers exceeding 2GB of usage in a billing month will still have access to unlimited data at reduced speeds until their new billing cycle starts. On average, T-Mobile 4G smartphone customers consume about 1 GB of data per billing month.
In addition to its unlimited plans, T-Mobile continues to offer one of the industry's most affordable entry-level data plans, starting at just $10 for 200 MB per billing month. The company also strives to help customers on these data plans avoid surprise bills with SMS alerts when they are reaching their data limit.
