T-Mobile Simple Starter plan gets quadruple the data for just $5 more

T-Mobile is offering a new option to one of its plans, this time for customers on the Simple Starter program. Those users can now increase their monthly data allotment from 500 MB to 2 GB for an additional $5 a month.

The Simple Starter plan was first announced in May, which gave users unlimited talk and text, and 500 MB of data, for $40 a month. Starting September 3, that data plan can be expanded to four times that amount and customers will only pay $45 a month for Simple Starter.

This new change comes on the heels of a number of other T-Mobile announcements last week, including a new six line family plan and offering users one free year of unlimited data if they convert customers from Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. What do you think of this latest change to Simple Starter?

T-Mobile Simple Starter plan gets quadruple the data for just $5 more


I flashed the Argentina ROM, outside of Wi-Fi calling and Internet Sharing, everything else works. Battery life has improved and so has system performance

Yes Starter is a hard cap, when you run out data you can pay for more. No music freedom on it either if that makes a difference to you. 

capped is better than overages.  2g is still doable for web browsing and social apps.  theyre just text based, which is many people do anyway.

You would think they could at least match Cricket's price and data allotment.  It's crazy that T-Mobile continues to be more expensive with less coverage even with these "deals".

Not necessarily.  The $50 plan has acces to music freedom, and has unlimited data although throttled.  This plan cuts you off when you hit your limit unless you pay more and does not offer music freedom or free speedtests. 

I'm almost done paying off my equipment installment plan and ready to get off this $80 plan. I would love to but that almost in half. I can work with 2GB a month.

T-Mobile's coverage in my area is phenomenal and I plan on switching within the next month or two. Just gotta get my hands on a Lumia 925 for T-Mobile...

Forget the plans, where are the Windows Phones? They're always late and don't push for premium/hero Windows Phones. So... No thanks.
