New rate plans for T-Mobile start today

This one comes as no surprise, but T-Mobile has officially announced their new Even More and Even More Plus rate plans. We asked our readers if they would save money on the new plans and the majority said no. Customers can now get unlimited everything for $99.99 (with 2 yr contract) or $79.99 (no contract). I’m excited about the Even More Plus plans which lack a contract.

We were hoping to get some updated news on T-Mobile’s rollout of HSPA 7.2, but nothing was unveiled today. T-Mobile said they would be upgrading by the end of the year and we will continue to be on the lookout for new details. We are also still waiting on the full specs for the Samsung Behold II which is expected to launch November 18, 2009.

To see all the technicalities of the new rate plans, visit T-Mobile’s Discover center.

If you switch rate plans this week, please share your experience with us.

Update (10/25 15:00): I switched my plan to the 500 minute Even More Plus talk+text+web which goes for $59.99 a month. The customer service rep I had on the phone told me I had to pay the $200 cancellation fee, but I was able to switch my plan (minus the $200) using the T-Mobile website. There is still a $35 fee for migrating plans, but it was worth it to get out of my contract. I hope to never sign a contract again.

Update 2: The $200 early termination fee is for customers who have more than one year left on their contract. If you have less than 365 days left, you only have to pay the $35 migration fee. Some T-Mobile reps are not fully trained, so just keep calling customer service till you get one who knows what they are talking about.
