T-Mobile Project Dark details leaked

T-Mobile USA employees were trained on the new “Project Dark” rate plans this weekend and details began showing up all over the web. It appears rate plans will be divided into Even More and Even More Plus. The Even More plan will be business as usual, but Even More Plus offers several new advantages like no annual contracts. The exact details are still sketchy, but it appears T-Mobile will be charging a $35 activation fee to convert your current contract to Even More Plus.

BGR is reporting the plans will run $39 for unlimited talk, $49 for unlimited talk+text, and $59 for unlimited talk+text+data.

Even More Plus for customers who want:

  • T-Mobile @Home available with unlimited Family plan
  • Data-only, webConnect, and T-Mobile cameo rate plans available

I love the fact that T-Mobile is dropping their annual contracts. Out of all the Project Dark rumors, I was crossing my fingers for something exactly like this. I’ve been burned by carrier contracts several times and I hope they just go away. I also like the idea that customers can purchase new phones with 20 installment payments.

T-Mobile is also expected to announce release dates for their holiday handsets (myTouch Fender, Behold II, etc) and upgrade to their faster 3G later this month.
