T-Mobile announces pricing for HTC One S and One X

T-Mobile announces pricing for HTC One S and One XIt's exciting times if you're a HTC fan - not only are the One X and One S (two of the loveliest phones we've ever had the pleasure of playing with) about to go on sale, but T-Mobile has announced just how much they'll cost.

If you sign up for a two-year contract (evil things!) and are willing to fork out £41 per month, then you'll be able to get your mitts on the flagship One X free. That's for unlimited texts, calls and internet so not a bad deal on the face of it for new subscribers.

You can get it for a little less on Three (£38 a month for two years) and, although we're not sure how many minutes and texts that'll bag you, we all know that Three offers true unlimited internet. So for a handset like this with such a beautiful screen and thirst for data, that sits nicely.

Back to T-Mobile and the One S can also be bagged free for the slightly lower price of £36 a month.

Both handsets are available from Wednesday if you want to wander into a T-Mobile store, take a look at their website or give them a bell.

Why all the T-Mobile data plan bashing? It's pretty good, unlimited surfing and a fair chunk of downloading. If people didn't take the **** with it all then there would be no need for all this 'misleading' terminology.

There is no T-Mobile bashing. If you read it, it says: "That's for unlimited texts, calls and internet so not a bad deal on the face of it for new subscribers."

The thing about two year contracts being evil relates to all networks.

Swampy, I agree with you that T-Mobile's data plans are good (if you can get them for a reasonable price), but this article isn't bashing them at all. We're not big on being unnecessarily biased here on Mobot.

But i am biased...
AVOID T-MOBILE... increasing my plans charges after being with them for 2 months... what a rip off.

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 3, 2012 at 22:52

Treab, you know those T&Cs that you didn't bother reading...yeah.

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 3, 2012 at 22:56

Treab, the price is only going up 3.7%, it's hardly going to break the bank.

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 3, 2012 at 23:01

But...I think you might have grounds to cancel your contract, free of charge. You've only been a customer since Jan 2012, therefore the 3.7% RPI increase (Jan 2011-Jan 2012) which they're imposing shouldn't be charged to you as you were only a customer for one of those 12 months. Have a look what the RPI increase in Jan 2012 was and at worst that's the only increase you should be charged.

If they still want to charge you the full 3.7%, tell them to get f*cked and you're leaving. You might wanna read the T&Cs first though. I'm not sure what yours say, they'll be different to mine as you signed up pre-Feb 2012.

Treab  Apr. 3, 2012 at 23:11

Spoke to ofcom and its legal but i will be putting in a complaint about it and if they don't reconsider i will take it to the ombudsman whilst its only 75p if they do it next may as they will start it may 4th that's 15extra over the contract... possibly 22.50 if they raise it another 75p

Treab  Apr. 4, 2012 at 01:43

Treab, you know those T&Cs that you didn't bother reading...yeah.

NOW NOW. i did read the terms and when the terms say price can rise once every 12 months you dont expect it after 2?

Treab, the price is only going up 3.7%, it's hardly going to break the bank.

no. but its the principle of the thing... surely they would know its likely going to go up before march the 25th (when i got my letter) and t-mobile never said when i spoke to their webchat.

I mean there is bashing in general, from experience three's 'unlimited' is anything but unlimited, at lest T-Mobile are up front with their limits. Is there a thread discussing this already?

krogothnx  Apr. 4, 2012 at 09:49

if there is, i haven't seen it. make one? i'd like to hear your experience with three's unlimited not being unlimited.

(not sarcasm, i genuinely would like to know.)

I was sat with my friend and she was unable to access Facebook on her iPhone 4S, she said it had been like that for a few days. I said it might be a problem with your internet settings, so she phoned three. They informed her that she had excessively used data and would not have any for the rest of the month, she would have to connect via wifi. All she does is check facebook, twitter and use whatsapp. The very rare streaming of a video via Youtube and thats about it.

What was annoying is that it completely cut her off, unlike T-Mobile who will just disable streaming and downloads.

Annoying, but better than charging her extra like they could have done.

Extra for what? An unlimited plan?

1) shes not on an unlimited plan. either it was before three had an unlimited cap or shes on a pay as you go deal which is why she was cut off.

2) if by some miracle she is on an unlimited plan and three did that WOOHOOO shes £££'s in. as its false advertising and she can cancel the contract without an issue.

T mobile full Monty plans come with unlimited data. Also t+c's state the price can be raised once on a 12 month period due to the RPI

AhmadCentral  Apr. 5, 2012 at 00:28

treab is right. She must have been on a old tariff from before march 2010. Three are truly unlimited. Unlike t mobile who cap at 500mb or throttle speeds to 3.8mbps and charge £19 to lift the speed cap.

I'm not t mobile bashing btw. I'm telling the truth
