    The plan will be perfect for me and my father. I had the $40 prepaid plan for over 10 years and just this month I decided get the $50 10gb prepaid plan just to enjoy the free music streaming and get a bit more usage out the the MLB games. My dad is still on the $40 prepaid plan. My dad doesn't utilize data much but I sometimes do. Most of the time I have wi-fi access. Except for an occasional game, I really only need data for web searches and a youtube video here and there. Would the speed limits on this plan work for me? Speak plainly, because the speed data people are throwing around is just going over my head.

    Thanks.

    Yes it would be fine, as long as most of what you do is over the phone. If you use your phone as a hotspot and connect a laptop to it to watch a game or a you tube video then you may have a problem with speeds, but if you are using the phone for all of that it will be fine.

    That's a great idea and a good value plan.

    Thanks for the info. I was also worried because I had recently refilled both accounts with Target's discounted airtime cards and I was worried I would lose the balance, but a representative told me they would carry over those funds. If One's coverage is better than my prepaid coverage, I'll be one happy camper.

    I live in an upscale community that has a lot of seniors residing in it. In my experience some of the most frugal/disciplined people I've ever met are mature people with money. I've noticed lots of Cricket and Metro PCS branded devices at our HOA meetings. I'm going to share this promo with them since T-Mobile has the best network in our neighborhood and surrounding area as it is.

    I'm putting my parents on this plan. Long time coming. Thanks T-Mobile.

    I had considered going with MetroPCS or T-MOBILE earier in the year, but had heard of horror stories from other people in FL about the coverage and data/voice dropping in non-metro (rual) areas.
    But if we wanted to do this 55+ Unlimited plan, then technically my mom would be the one to sign up for it, as they only check the ID of the account holder. Not sure why...as I'd think they'd want to make sure both are over 55.
    It will be nice to see ya on the Magenta side of the house. But even if T-Mobile isn't good enough in your area today hopefully soon it will be.

    So it’s actually $70.00-10.00 auto pay =60.00 for two lines taxes and fees included. Not too shabby. Too bad no kick back not even $5.00 per line would have been awesome.

    I'm a 63 year old Verizon customer with a Pixel XL. I'm wondering if I could take advantage of T Mobile's "Get Out Of the Red" promotion, have them pay off my phone, and then switch to the discounted plan for us old folks. Wishful thinking?

    That and they most likely figure the older crowd doesn't switch often so they are more likely to stay with T-MO

    I'm sure overall this demographic uses less data, but at least in my family, several folks dangerously don't UNDERSTAND data usage. My mother, as an example, has no idea that the funny YouTube video she found on Facebook is going to suck up 300mb, and can often spike up to several gigs of use per day as such.

    Then again, that's exactly where a hassle free unlimited plan will help out.

    Doesn't hurt to ask. Give them a call and see. Depending on the balance owed, they might do it.

    This is a smart move by T-Mobile.

    Well, a senior couple could include two "youngsters" by making each senior the principal on one account with a 2nd line.

    One of the articles/press releases I saw stated they would pay the fees for switching for another carrier. Even though it didn't mention paying off the device from Verizon, as others have said, it is worth checking out.
