- AutoPay and certain other discounts such as Insider Hook Up and benefits requiring data (like Netflix On Us) are not available with this plan.
- If you need data lines for your tablet or laptop, T-Mobile ONE Tablet and other Mobile Internet lines can be added alongside your Unlimited Talk & Text voice lines.
- This plan is not for extended international use; you must reside in the U.S. and primary usage must occur on our network.
New and existing T-Mobile customers can get Unlimited Talk & Text Only. It's not available for No Credit Check or Prepaid accounts however, and can't be combined with other pooling/family plans on the same account.
- If you are a new customer, you can go into any T-Mobile store or call us at 1-800-TMOBILE to get started.
- If you are already a T-Mobile customer, you can visit your local T-Mobile store or call us by dialing 611 from your T-Mobile phone for help with the change. Be aware that this plan is not compatible with data or grandfathered features and certain discounts may be lost upon changing to this plan.
I have a smartphone but still want Unlimited Talk & Text Only. How can I access the internet or update my apps using my device?
Simply connect your phone to a Wi-Fi connection to access data and Internet services.
Will I automatically be enrolled if I don’t use data anyway?
No, you need to visit a retail store or call customer care to sign up for Unlimited Talk & Text Only.
Do I get a discount if I have multiple lines?
There is no discount for additional lines; each line is the same price per month regardless of the number of lines added.
Can I add any additional services to Unlimited Talk & Text Only?
You may choose to add Stateside International Talk & Text, Name ID, and Voicemail to Text. You may also add protection for your device. Data-related features, including T-Mobile ONE Plus, may not be added.
I want the Unlimited Talk & Text Only line. Can I keep my existing free line or "Buy One, Get One" promotions on my account?
Unlimited Talk & Text Only lines may not be added to an existing T-Mobile ONE taxes inclusive plan of more than one voice line or any T-Mobile ONE tax exclusive or Simple Choice plan. You would need to migrate from your existing T-Mobile ONE or Simple Choice plan and give up your promotional benefits or your free or discounted line(s).
I have a Mobile Internet line only – can I add an Unlimited Talk & Text Only line to my account? Or, can I add a Mobile Internet line to my Unlimited Talk & Text Only line?
Yes, you can add Mobile Internet lines to Unlimited Talk & Text Only and vice versa.
Is Unlimited Talk & Text Only compatible with DIGITS?
To be able to utilize the full functionality of DIGITS, you'll need an active internet connection. While you'd be able to use DIGITS while connected to Wi-Fi, we'd suggest looking at utilizing it with T-Mobile ONE to enjoy it to the fullest capability.
