At T-Mobile’s “un-carrier” event in New York, the fourth largest wireless provider in the U.S. announced release details for two flagship devices. The Samsung Galaxy S4 will officially be available starting May 1st and Apple’s iPhone 5 will make its debut on the carrier on April 12th. Both devices are compatible with T-Mobile’s new 4G LTE network, which went live in seven markets today.
The Galaxy S4’s pricing was not disclosed, but it’s likely to be similar to what T-Mobile announced for the iPhone 5, which is $99 down and $20 per month for 24 months thereafter. Per new un-carrier policy, the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5 will be carrier-locked until fully paid off.
Simple Choice Plan:
Simple Choice asks customers two basic questions: How many lines do you need, and how much high-speed data would you like? Customers start with one line at $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and Web with 500MB of high-speed data. Customers can add a second phone line for $30 per month, and each additional line is just $10 per month. They can also add 2 GB of high-speed data for $10 per month more per line. Unlimited 4G data is only $20 more per month per line. No caps. No overages. Just simple value.
