Review 1 for (Email Delivery) New T-Mobile Monthly4G $30 Unlimited Web & Text with 100 min of talk

For heavy data/text user this is the best

Bought this from walmart and activated within an hour. Data speed is very fast. Can't complain. I wish this plan had 200 minutes or so. Skype with $3 a month unlimited US/Canada might works if need more than 100 minutes per month. However any VoIP services will not be as clear as mobile service voice quality. I am just testing this out to see if this plan is keeper or not.

The plan is cheap to start but there it ends.
I work at a major international airport in New Jersey
And the T-Mobile data service is almost absent at
That location. My friends with AT&T and Verizon telephone
Can watch YouTube, while I will be lucky to view my emails.
The upload/download speed runs from 0.01- 0.03 Mb.
Unless T-Mobile can increase this sorry state of their phone
Data service, they will not be able to retain the new customers
For long. Thank you.

T-Mobile is cheap
Posted 01/07/2014
T-mobile is cheaper for a reason. It's a Smaller and slower network. I've got it too, but I know it has limitations, but I will not pay a lot for cell phone service. It's just not as important to me as it is for many others.

Tmobile can be spotty but if you go to NET10 you will be able to choose AT&T for wide coverage at $45/month but its an Unlimited talk plan and has 2.4gig of data which will suit most people. Not sure if the AT&T uses 4G-LTE yet just 4G-HSPA I think.

First I want to say that I am very happy with this product. I started using this with my Tmobil phone Lumia 521 about a year ago. It was really easy to use this $30 plan. I kept refilling it for quite sometime and later on I decided to change it to pay as you go mins on the Tmobil website. Which I got tired of not having web so last week I bought this card and got it by email in about 30 mins. I quickly used it and I forgot to change my plan first and it just added more mins. My fault but I went and logged on tried to change it this plan and I no longer was able to go back Tmobil site only gave me the other more expensive options. So I had to add more money to my Tmobil account and get the 40 plan which is unlimited talk, text and web not bad just was more then I wanted to spend each month. Why was I not allowed to go back to this plan? Will I ever be able to get this again? Does anyone have any ideas what to do to fix this? Please comment. Thank you

You have to get a " new activation kit"/ sim card. pretty sure you will have to change to new phone number too. Use an app like google voice or other VOIP services( calling over wifi) to get around the 100 min restriction

Best Plan Ever

In order for you to get this plan you need a new activation from Tmobile. That means you have to buy an Activation Kit, get it from Amazon.com for $3. After you receive this kit, you must activate new phone number on tmobile.com. DO NOT Call them or you will not be able to pick this plan. After putting all the info from activation kit and IMEI # from ANY tmobile phone, it will prompt you to pick the plan that you want, pick this plan. Then it will provide you with the new phone number. If you get some kind of message from tmobile saying that they are processing you request and blah blah blah, DO NOT call them, Try again or pick a different area code for your new number. It took me 3 times before I got my new number. After you get this plan you can either pay be credit card there or buy this card from walmart.com and get it in the email. Also for unlimited calls in the US you can get skype calling for $3 a month voice over ip. Works great, I love my new and cheap PLAN.

Got the activation kit free from T-mobile site.
Posted 06/10/2013
When I got to check-out, a 'chat with representative' button appeared. I chose that, verified the activation kit works with my phone, then she offered me a promo code to get the activation kit for 99 cents. I entered that, went through checkout and they charged me nothing for my order.

I just activated the card a few minutes ago. I bought my phone and activation kit for cheap from eBay a couple weeks ago. I chose to buy the prepaid card online. The email with the pin came within 15 minutes of me buying it. I went to the T-mobile website and chose to activate a prepaid. I put in my activation code, sim code, and the IMEI number. Then the next page asked for my birth date, region, and whether or not I wanted to use an old number. Afterwards, I chose my plan ($30) and submitted. They gave me my new number and at the end, I entered the pin for the card. During this process, you will also be making your T-mobile account.
I am in an area where I am surrounded by T-mobile towers so my internet speed is good. I tested out my number by calling my mother's phone. When I got my number, T-mobile sent me a few text messages so I know that works. The service turned out well and the plan is cheap so I am happy!

Some people here are complaining that this card is giving them the wrong $30/month plan when activated, or that Walmart is not sending them an e-mail within 24 hours or so. I was apprehensive to order this card online from Walmart because of such reviews, but let me tell you that this experience worked flawlessly for me. I can't speak for those who experienced those and similar issues with purchasing and activating this card and plan with T-Mobile, but I can personally say that I received the e-mail within an hour giving me my activation code, I called the number given and provided the code, and it was applied to my T-Mobile account online and the right $30/month plan (Unlimited Web and Text w/ 100 minutes) was activated on my account.
Maybe the problem for some of the others was that they didn't register to create an account on T-Mobile's website /before/ purchasing and activating this card? Not sure if that would pose a problem, but it's worth a try beforehand to prevent issues like those which others have experienced.

My son gave me his t-mobile G2 android phone when he upgraded. I already had a Walmart LG GS170, so he moved the sim card to the G2. No data service. He called t-mobile support and they assured him that there would be data service and that we could use the $30 Walmart plan. Two days later and no data service. We called back to t-mobile. Yes we could have data service, for $50 a month. No we couldn't have a refund on the $30 Walmart monthly card we had just used.
So I try again. This time with a new sim card. We call t-mobile customer service again. Oh yes you can have the $30 Walmart plan! Sure we have the Walmart plan.....with no data. Two $30 cards down the drain for $30 a month cell and text service....with no data.
Also the My T-Mobile website has been out of service for over two months. I have no way of checking on my service or expiration dates. But not to worry....The t-mobile customer rep said it would be escalated in priority to be repaired...about two weeks ago.

needless to say they won't give you the run around since its a non-contract plan so its in their best interests to keep you a happy and satisfied customer unlike t-mobile customer service.

The best thing to do with this plan is to A. Buy the SIM card activation kit from T-Mobile.com and it'll only cost you $1. It shipped within a week. B. Purchase this $30 plan with unlimited web & text and you'll receive the confirmation via email within a few hours or a day. C. Once you receive both items, activate the SIM card on T-Mobile.com and enter in the PIN number they gave you associated with this $30 plan. D. After all is processed, keep your SIM information & the new number because you CAN transfer your old mobile number. E. Call T-Mobile and speak to an operator, ignore the promps. Let them know what you're trying to do and they will transfer the number. The only thing is you might have to use the new number for a few days. T-Mobile will also transfer whatever amount of fund were on your old account to this new one. The phone number will go back to your old one after a few days automatically. You will receive a cofirmation text letting you know the old numbers back. In the meantime, to use My Tmobile, use the new number. I hope this review was helpful. I'm just glad I didn't have to purchase a brand new phone.

I used to have a pay as you go plan with T-Mobile. I heard that this plan is for new customers who bought a phone on the Walmart.com or t-mobile.com. THIS IS NOT TRUE. I've got a unlocked Google Nexus from Google play and a new SIM card from t-mobile.com and activated it with my son's Samsung Exhibit from Walmart. But I was about to loose my long time phone #. I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask if I can be switched from the pay as you go to the $30 100min/unl.text/data plan. I was so surprised when I was told YES. They swapped the plan and I saved my phone # with the great phone. The new SIM card will go to a trash can now. People, don't rely on 'he said, she said', just go ahead and ask.
100 minutes is not enough for me so I used them in two weeks. In this world of technology I didn't want to pay 10c. a minutes after that so I learn that the Google voice along with Talkatone work just great. They eat your data but 5gb is a huge number, I never used more that 2. 5 min. of talking is 2 MB of data. I barely use my 100 minutes now. Overall I am very happy with the plan and my new phone.

Only for new T-Mobile pre-pay customers

ON the Mytmobile.com site (you have to have a t-mobile online account to see this), someone posted an online chat dated 10/16/11 @0924, between himself and a T-Mobile CSR. Apparently, the CSR had this person refill his account with $30, before putting him on hold for 3 to 5 minutes, and then coming back to say that this $30 unlimited text/web, 100 minute talk monthly plan is AVAILABLE TO NEW T MOBILE PRE-PAY CUSTOMERS ONLY.
Per a response to this discussion thread....
Here's the trick...
When you call customer service you have to say that you want to switch from a "post paid account to a prepaid account" specifically. They will then transfer you to the Prepaid division of TMobile to establish your new account. It is similar to starting a new plan with a new provider.
I have tried and had no luck in switching to this t-mobile plan.

So this gives you 100 minutes a month, BUT you have no voicemail included? I see only 30 days included. And if I have to pay extra for voicemail, I would use this mainly for the data. If at all. Having to pay extra for voicemail is worth at least 3 rotten tomatoes for T-mobile! *#!

Detailed Info on $30 Plan

Hello everyone. There is a lot of confusion about this plan and I wanted to help clear some up with my own experiences. I am going to be writing a very thorough account so please bare with me. Before I begin my review, let me give a brief history of my background with T-Mobile.
I was originally a contract AT&T customer. I switched to T-Mobile and ported my number by choosing a $80 unlimited everything POST-paid plan. I even traded in my AT&T-bought Galaxy Note 2 to get a T-Mobile Note 3 at the retail store. After a month of usage, I realized that I was not using my unlimited services as much as I thought and decided to switch to this plan to save money.
I first read a lot of reviews and articles about this plan to make sure 1) it was still being offered and 2) it was doable for an already existing T-Mobile customer. I would recommend that if you are reading my review, you at least confirm #1 before buying this service. This $30 service is being hidden by T-Mobile since it is Walmart exclusive and they can remove it anytime.
To actually get this plan is quite easy, the difficulty comes in the activation of the plan. First off, you do NOT need to buy a Walmart phone. You do NOT need to buy physically from a Walmart store (you can order online). You do NOT need to be a new customer and you can most definitely port over your current (or old) number to this prepaid plan. I was an already existing post-paid T-mobile customer with a T-Mobile specific phone that I bought elsewhere and I managed to keep my old number. Oh, and I ordered online and had it shipped to my home.
The way I got this plan set up was by first buying this product here in Walmart, see link (http://www.walmart.com/ip/T-Mobile-Micro-SIM-Activation-Kit/24099996). This Activation Kit came with the MICRO-sim (check your sim size please!), all the necessary resources needed to activate the sim, and $30 of prepaid service for a month. The one I'm typing in now, I believe, is an EMAIL confirmation of the $30 refill. It is NOT the sim card or anything else. This is for when you already have the service and want to reload again. You need the activation kit above to start the service.
After receiving my order from Walmart in less than a week, I went online to www.t-mobile.com/prepaidactivation (it's in the pamphlet that comes in your Walmart package) and followed the instructions on the site to activate the service. Before I got to the payment portion of the site, I didn't need to pay anything and just left that section empty because my prepaid account was now active and already paid for.
I then called T-Mobile customer service, had them transfer me to the prepaid department and I mentioned my story. I was a existing POST-paid T-mobile customer that needed to transfer to PRE-paid service by adding the $30 plan I got from Walmart. Lastly I needed to port over my number.
This is where it gets tricky. You might get unlucky and get unintelligent representatives that do not understand your request. Or you might get lucky like me and manage to get it set up in 3 calls. If everything is done correctly, the representative should transfer your account (or create a new one) to prepaid and then you must wait 24 hours (its actually less, like 30 minutes to 3 hours) to receive a text message to confirm everything went through okay. Just make sure you replace your old sim card with the new Walmart micro-sim card and restart your phone to receive that text message. You should also test your phone by calling it from a different phone to make sure you get connection with the new sim. If everything is working, you are good to go.
All in all, I had a pretty easy installation. I got my service and it's exactly as advertised. If you're coming from POST-paid like me, remember that prepaid has a lot less features than POST-paid (no caller ID for $3.99/mo, no JUMP! program, etc). Just a two final tips to those that want to save even more money:
From my understanding, prepaid services include NO taxes so long as you do NOT use any t-mobile services to pay your bill (phone, internet, etc). This also includes AUTO-REPAY (auto-drafting from your bank account every month). If you auto-repay, you will have to pay tax, at least from what the representative told me. If you use an authorized reload center however (ex: a check-cashing place), then you may or may not be taxed. There's a check-cashing place that is 30 minutes away from me that reloads prepaid T-mobile free of charge. So if your lucky, you might just have to pay a FLAT $30 and avoid all taxes and charges altogether saving even more money.
Lastly, all the major phone carriers charge taxes based on your AREA CODE not your actual address. Meaning if you have an area code from New York, you will be charged New York State taxes (which are high). But technically, if you can change your area code (and phone number) to a state with low state taxes, then you will be taxed less. All you have to do after that is call customer service and let them know you want to enroll in paperless billing, so they don't mail anything to your address (that is clearly not in that area code). I don't know if this is legal or not, you can research more through google. But just an added tip for you guys.
Anyways, I hope my detailed review was helpful to someone. Enjoy your new savings!

This is an excellent plan for high speed data. Please note that to get on this plan you DO NOT need to purchase a new cell phone from Walmart as few others have pointed out in the reviews. Here's my setup (using my Nexus One).
Purchased a T-Mobile activation kit (basically the SIM card). Popped the SIM into my phone and activated it using the instruction on the activation kit pack. Once activated, bought this pack from Walmart. Walmart sent an email with topup code and phone number to activate this.Called that number to apply this topup. Done! Using this plan with my old phone.
Also, if you exhaust 100 mins. provided with this plan you CAN add more minutes anytime. For those extra minutes you pay by the minute. Topup again on the next refill date to get 100 free minutes.

After coming off from a 2 year contract with T mobile, I found this on their website. I contacted customer support and they said that I would have to buy a new phone to get this plan. I went to my local walmart store, bought the cheapest one possible, activated it, and then poped the sim card into my MyTouch4G phone. Worked flawlessly... I got 4G internet, Email, Facebook, Google maps, etc.
After being a faithful t mobile customer for more then 4 years, and them stating that I was already in the best rate plan "90/month per line", I couldnt afford to stick with them another 2 years after only using an average of 100 mins per month anyways. I like the DATA!!!
I am currently using my mytouch tmobile hot spot right now without purchasing wifi tethering that is required under the conventional "contract" rate plans.

I bought this plan for my son for his birthday. He has had issues making calls, sending text in the few days with the plan. The worst issue was that I purchased the Monthly4G $30 Unlimited Web & Text with 100 min of talk but when the phone was setup T-Mobile entered the wrong plan, one that only has 1500 minutes of talk or text. After over an hour trying to fix the issue, my son was told that they only way to fix the issue is to buy a new plan even though it was a T-Mobile mistake. I spent over another hour getting dropped calls and sent to the incorrect departments... The problem was fixed but I was told that the owner of the phone only has 48 hours to fix an issue, even if it was their issue. I asked how is someone to know that you are set to an incorrect plan and I was told to dial #225#.

I spend about a week reading about phone plans. I really wanted to get one considering I needed it. I found this plan and kept reading about it. A lot of people kept saying I can't use it unless I buy a phone from tmobile and all these things. but that's not true.
Just purchase a 'starter kit' from ANY where. It can be from your local tmobile shop #ask if you can just purchase a prepaid sim card without them activating it.# I had to look in a couple of stores. I found two of them. One was charging 25$ and the other was charging 15$. I could have purchased it online, but I didn't have a credit card. WHICH i would recommend you guys do.
After purchasing a starter kit, activate it on the main tmobile website. Their will be an option that asks which plan you're planning on using. Click on this one! Afterwards, you'll be given a choice to purchase a card from the main website or if you already have purchased this, just input the pin you get and BAM! You'l be activated. If it gives you an invalid error. Just call the 1800 number that walmart gives you and input your information and the pin and you'll be good to go. I had to do that mainly because entering the pin onto the website didn't work. Haven't had a problem since.
I used my phone that wasn't purchased from tmobile or walmart. I also used a tmobile sim card that wasn't purchased from either. So hopefully this helps anyone who is struggling or is confused.

TMobile store really digging this plan
Posted 06/09/2013
So I went into my local TMo store today to buy a sim card & activation kit for my inbound Samsung Galaxy phone (GSM Tmobile unlocked phone 1700/2100 mhz) and they said I needed to bring in the phone so they could help activate it & set up my plan. When I told them that I just wanted to get the SIM card and that I was going to sign up for this plan, the assistant started telling me how lousy this plan was, only shares a few of TMos towers, no customer support, very poor connectivity, etc etc, etc. Funny that they have the very same plan listed on their plans pages (albeit at the very bottom, w/ no active link to be able to check it out.) In these last couple weeks I have been researching new affordable phone plans, it is like dealing with snake oil salesmen.

I felt compelled to write a review after reading the misinformation on this plan, note that I am not affiliated with any provider but I hate the fact that mobile phone contracts are so expensive.
I am moving from the other major GSM provider in the USA where I had a 2-year contract. I wanted to use my unlocked smartphone on this plan that I had purchased elsewhere but was informed that I needed to buy one of the Walmart phones as this was an exclusive special. I purchased the LG GS170 (red) for $30 and then popped the SIM in my smartphone with no problems (Samsung Galaxy Nexus unlocked). I did have the associate check with T-Mobile beforehand that this would be okay to which they had no problems whatsoever.
Next, I called T-Mo support to see if I could have my number changed to my other provider's cell number. After providing them my account information for my previous provider, my number was moved to the prepaid T-Mobile phone about 2 days later. Check to make sure that your number is eligible and DO NOT cancel your previous phone service until T-Mo moves the number though, otherwise you are completely out of luck and cannot retrieve the number.
I am getting excellent data speeds (4G HSPA+) that shame my previous provider and are on par with that of my home internet, capping out at about 9 Mbps. Do your research and your mileage may vary, but this deal is a steal for those who are tired of paying over $90 a month for a mobile contract and do not need to buy phones at a subsidized rate. Kudos to Walmart and T-Mobile for offering this to consumers.

What?
Posted 05/13/2012
You can port your number over and if you want the 30 plan with 100min talk and unlimeted every thing else it tells you that in writing you have to get the phone at Walmart but you can get the same deal online if you activated it on there web site.

Do we need to purchase the phone?
And do they fineprint their ad that we can use OTHER phone than the one we purchased, just as in your case?

I used to be with simple mobile and paid $40 for unlimited everything but when they change the rate plan the speed went down it was suppose to be 3g but my cell alwalys showed 2g so i decided to change to this plan and since i already had a t-mobile phone i didnt need to get another one, the only problem that i had with this plan was the 100 min so i decided to get skype and it works great on 4g, its super fast and with the skype and t-mobile im only paying $35 a month so its still perty cheap and the internet its super fast plus since my phone its hotspot ready i share the internet with my tablet it wont share with my laptop i don know why its a motorloa cliq 2, but when my husband who has the same plan but he has an htc my touch 4g he is able to share the internet to the laptop and it works way faster than the home internet and we still use less than the 5g, i had no problem porting the number from simple mobile it took less than an hour for the porting to be completed.I get Fantastic reception ANYWHERE!!!

It took over a day to receive our emails with the codes, and we were out of service for a whole day! Bottom line: Great value, just be sure to purchase a few days ahead of time or just head out to a store to buy the code for immediate use.

Great plan for data/messages usage

Most important thing: You do NOT have to buy a new phone, neither use a new number to use it. Just buy the card, wait for the email (DO NOT ACTIVATE THROUGH THE WALMART PHONE NUMBER) and call T-Mobile (if you already have a plan with it) telling the representative that you want to keep your actual phone number.
I have an Galaxy S and a old T-Mobile SIM and I'm using this new plan after this steps above.
About the plan:
Stick with this plan if you need data access. You have 5GB at 4G speeds to use (on capable devices) and 2G if you go further. The only drawback is the 100 minutes dialing/receiving call, but for me is more than fine because I can use Talkatone or Groove IP for calling through Google Voice (Voip) inside the data plan.
Messages are unlimited also.

Were you on a contract or prepaid? My contract will be up in September and i really want to get rid of my family plan as i don't use nearly 750 minutes and am tired of paying $80+ for just talk and txt. Another person posted a review on 7-7-12 basically saying that they wouldn't let him switch from his old prepaid to this one when he called the t-mobile number to activate this "card". Maybe you got a nice representative? If you were on a contract did you call after your plan was up? What did you say when you called t-mobile to get this plan?
