New T-Mobile Pay as You Go plan offers minutes and messages for $0.10 apiece

If you’re on the hunt for a new, ultra-cheap cellphone plan, you may want to give T-Mobile a look on August 17. That’s the day that T-Mo will launch its new Pay as You Go plan, which starts out at just $3 per month.

In exchange for your three Washingtons, you’ll get either 30 minutes or messages. From there you’ll pay $0.10 for each additional minute or message you use. Data add-ons will be available at a rate of $5 for a 1-day pass with 500MB of LTE data or $10 for a 7-day pass with up to 1GB of LTE data.

T-Mobile’s new PAYG plan doesn’t require any contract, credit check or deposit, and it can be pretty cheap too. This plan could be a good fit for a child’s emergency phone or just for someone that wants to pay for exactly what they use in a month and nothing more.

So what do you think of T-Mobile’s fresh Pay as You Go offering? Anyone thinking about signing up?

    PAYG plans are perfect for international tourists who don’t stay for more than a couple of weeks. But for everyone else, the $30 “Walmart” prepaid plan is hard to beat:100 minutes (10 cents per minute over that), unlimited texts, 5GB of LTE data (uncapped, but throttled after.)

    The data aspect is pretty lame. Why not have an option for 1GB LTE with no expiration, good until you use it up?

    Will Wi-Fi calling work with this?
