While the other carriers are sticking to their traditional plans or implementing data caps T-Mobile has been really pushing the envelope. They started with their Even More upfront plans and have some really differentiating offers and features like UMA Wi-Fi calling.
In their latest move T-Mobile is offering customers who get family plans three extra lines for free until 2012. That means not only are the first and second line included you now also get the third, fourth, and fifth. This new deal gives you those free lines for over a year along with 200 minutes bonus per line.
I know what you are thinking. T-Mobile is just trying to get parents in so they can kill them on the text messages and overage charges. Still it might be a great deal for giving your kid a cellphone on the cheap if you monitor it right.
If you are in the market for adding lines to your family plan on T-Mobile you will want to check out the details of the deal at this link.
PS: I just love the connotation of “Kids are Free”…
