T-Mobile announced in December that it would eliminate subsidies on cell phones this year, hinting that it would also switch up its mobile plans and go no-contract. Now, it's expected that the carrier will debut its new plans at an event scheduled for March 26.
However, TMoNews seems to have gotten its hands on at least some of the pricing information a week in advance.
According to a TMoNews, T-Mobile will be offering two types of plans: the "Uncarrier classic," which will be offered by national retailers like Target and Best Buy, and "Value" plans offered in the carrier's own stores.
If the rumor mill is correct, these plans won't be tied to a two-year contract. Instead, T-Mobile will move completely to the Classic and Value plans and let customers pay for their devices by the month, or bring their own unlocked devices to the carrier.
Besides announcing new pricing plans at its March 26 event, it is expected that T-Mobile will also discuss the creation of its new high-speed network, which is reportedly a hybrid between 4G LTE and 42Mbps GSM. The company began rolling out software updates to Samsung Galaxy Note 2 devices yesterday, which enables support for 4G LTE.
