Best iPhone 6/6 Plus plan in US? T-Mobile unlimited Text and Data, 100 minutes talk: $30/month

T-mobile Promo

Hidden about 2/3rds the way down the T-Mobile pre-paid plans list is a great little gem of a plan for any unlocked phone but it is particularly nice for the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones if you buy them off contract. For $30 month, T-Mobile will give you unlimited 4G/LTE Data (capped at 5Gb where you will then go on EDGE) plus 100 minutes of talk time. That’s far below any other plan including T-Mobile’s advertized plans above it.

T-Mobile doesn’t have the best service area but where it does have coverage its LTE is fast. The carrier also lets you make free SMSes/voicemails from planes, has extremely reasonable international rates including free texts and perhaps most importantly has Wifi calling so you can make calls over Wifi in your basement. With the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus you even get wifi to cell tower handoff capabilities.

T-Mobile will even give you a $200 ASUS Router for a refundable deposit of $25 that will improve voice quality over Wifi but you can use it for Wifi around your home.

The downsides are important to consider.

  1. Those 100 talk minutes can go quick and T-Mobile will charge you (a fair price) if you go over.
  2. You have to pay for the iPhone up front. The iPhone 6 is $650 and iPhone 6 Plus is $750 to start. That can be painful
  3. T-Mobile’s coverage range is limited especially compared to Verizon and AT&T. While it is sometimes fixed by the carrier’s willingness to let you make calls over Wifi, you will still find absolutely no coverage in many small towns in the US.  You won’t get roaming data but you will still be able to make calls while roaming in US.
  4. This is a web/Walmart only plan so it won’t work in T-Mobile Stores and as such, support is very limited.

However, I’ve had this plan for about a year now and it is great.
