Yes, you can also enroll in EasyPay and have the amount deducted from your debit or credit card each month. Don’t want to enroll? No problem, just pay a $4.99 per line Control Charge upfront each month.
What if I’m on a one or two-year service agreement and short on cash?
If you don’t pay for an upcoming service cycle by your payment due date, you can still use your phone at a rate of 20¢ a minute if you have funds in your FlexAccountSM. We even give you a grace period of 45 days to pay your monthly service charges. But be sure to make a payment in that timeframe or your account will be cancelled. For more details on service cancellation, see your terms and conditions.
What if I’m on a month-to-month service agreement and short on cash?
If you don’t pay for an upcoming service cycle by your due date, you can still use your phone at a rate of 20¢ a minute if you have funds in your FlexAccount. Your service will be cancelled if you don’t make a payment or use your phone at all for 90 days.
How do I reinstate service?
To resume service during your monthly service cycle, you can pay the prorated monthly service charge and receive a prorated number of Whenever Minutes® (or other monthly services, such as a messaging bundle) for the remaining days. If you pay during the last 5 days of your service cycle, you will need to pay for those remaining days and your next month of service to reinstate your monthly services.
What happens if I don’t pay my entire balance due?
Service is suspended if the balance due is not paid in full by the due date. If you make a partial payment toward your monthly service charge, you will receive a prorated number of Whenever Minutes (or other monthly services, such as a messaging bundle) for the remaining days in your service cycle. When making a partial payment, we cannot confirm in advance the exact date when service can be restored.
How long will it take for me to receive the payment reminders showing any additional charges for changes I make during the month?
Charges for changes made during the month, including feature and rate plan upgrades or downgrades will be reflected in the following month's payment reminder. If you want to see your amount due before then, you can always check on your handset by dialing #BAL# or by visiting My T-Mobile.
Can I change the due date on my monthly service cycle?
No, the due date is set by your activation date.
Please note that I edited the T-Mobile phone number to prevent flooding of their lines before the service is even released.
If anybody would like to see the full file, PM me and I'll send you the PDF.
*Also, after having spoken to CS, conversion from a PostPaid account to FlexPay is not yet supported. They said to check back in about a week.*

I just found it on the Tmo support page, its a start at least!
Yes they are.Originally Posted by eimajuno
It launched today for new customers. The SmartAccess account type/plans, and deposit accounts, were grandfathered today.
Current customers have to wait a couple of months I believe...
The overage is lower than the current post-paid plans (only $0.20 per minute).
I do like the lower overage and the lack of contract, but it offers only the coverage of T-Mobile ToGo. People will have to be sure to double check roaming in areas they frequent before switching from a contract plan to a Flexpay plan. (Coverage seems to be the same in Oklahoma, but is less in Texas, Kansas, and Missouri. I didn't check other areas.)
They have updated the link to the prepaid coverage maps on T-Mobile's online coverage tool. It now says "Prepaid and FlexPay coverage map."
2 Things... the coverage is only 3% less than that of the nationwide coverage and currently the statement of can postpaid switch to flexpay... the answer to that is not in the first 60 days and then it's not guaranteed when but definitely not in those first 60 days so don't try to call in to cust care and switch cause the answer is NO.
Your post is the first time I have read that prepaid coverage is only 3% less than postpaid coverage. I have read in many places that prepaid coverage is about 70-75% of postpaid coverage. I've never looked closely enough to feel I could assign a percentage to the difference in coverage. If you compare the Kansas and Missouri maps, you can see a substantial difference. These areas are noticeable to me as I travel there once or twice a year. There is very little difference in many areas, and no discernable difference here in Oklahoma.Originally Posted by TMoBoyinAL
I certainly don't want to talk anyone out of the FlexPay plans as they sound great. My mom has had a ToGo line for a few years, and this may be a good thing for her. (Her credit won't allow for a postpaid plan and her pride won't let her be on my family plan.)
If I ever complete my contract without ongoing 2-yr. extensions, I may try the FlexPay approach. I just keep finding these new phones that are so much cheaper with 2-yr. extension!
If they had FlexPay last year when I signed up with T-Mobile, I might not be on contract today.
It's an approximate but that's the T-Mobile estimate. I think T-Mobile's Pre-Paid/Flexpay roaming is more generous than most carriers (Cingy/VZW) but that's just from what customers have told me not experience. I've never had PP svc b4.Originally Posted by scooby214
I agree that their roaming is definitely better than Pay-as-you-GoPhone. (We don't have Verizon in our area.)Originally Posted by TMoBoyinAL
Based on your knowledge, I'm guessing you work for T-Mo. I know of quite a few ToGo users here in Oklahoma City, as it really is the best value for your money in our area.
One of the nicest benefits of FlexPay over prepaid is that you can do data on more devices than just the Sidekick!
From everything else I have picked up in my "special" reading materials:
-Regional Plans, Hotspot@home, Caller Tunes, and the Blackberry Voice Barred Data Plan @ 29.99 and high-end standalone Blackberry @ 59.99 and 799 will not be available. All other Blackberry Plans and add-ons will be available.
-No activation fees or deposits
-(Month-to-Month): No Credit-Check, Can get up to 3 Lines per Account.
-(Month-to-Month): Although FlexPay may say it is for everyone, the customer still needs to be 18 and provide government-issued ID uponactivation. A PIN number may be asked to provide futureverification.
-Pick any T-Mobile rate Plan except for above noted.
-(Annual Contract): Phones will be discounted by rebate, incurs 1-2 contract and ETF. Limited to 2 Lines per Account.
-Coverage will be limited to Pre-Paid calling area (It's just about the same as Post-Paid though)
-If a customer runs out of Whenever Minutes, they may still use their Unlimited or MyFaves Minutes.
-Payment is due by 12:01 AM 5 days before the end of the billing cycle.
-A FlexAccount is shared by all lines on the Account, not by each personal line.
-FlexPay customers on annual contract who don’t pay the monthly service charges within 45 days of when their last payment was due,will be deactivated and ETF charged.
-Month-to-month FlexPay customers will be deactivated after 90 days if there is no account activity (calls, messages, or payments).
-All FlexPay plans have no international roaming except in Canada or Mexico.
