So I’d like to start this post off by saying we made a mistake yesterday. We were stating all day long that pre-orders were open for T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T. They were only open for AT&T and Sprint. T-Mobile has been quiet until now. It appears that they aren’t doing pre-orders at all though.
On April 11th, T-Mobile will begin selling the HTC One M8. It’ll be available for $0 down and $26.50 per month, which equates to about $636. Which is about what we’ve seen as full price at other carriers, and it’s still a lot cheaper than the Google Play Edition which is $699. Obviously the $0 down is for those with good credit, but you can also buy the HTC One M8 for full retail from T-Mobile if you’re interested, and choose one of their Simple Choice plans and be completely contract free.
By now, I’m sure you’re aware of their Simple Choice Plans. Which start at $50 and go up to $80. They all include unlimited minutes and texts as well as international roaming data on 2G/EDGE networks. Additionally the $50 plan includes 1GB of high-speed data, $60 gets you 3GB of high-speed data and $70 gets you 5GB of high-speed data. After that you are throttled down to 2G speeds, which are not fun. Now the $80 plan – which is what I have – is unlimited everything no throttling at all. And I can attest to them not throttling on the $80 plan because I’ve used 16GB so far this month and still getting great speeds.
So now we have pricing and release details for all of the US carriers for the HTC One M8. How many of you out there are planning on picking up the HTC One M8 from T-Mobile? Or another carrier? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
