Earlier this year it was rumored that T-Mobile was going to drop contracts, the initiative itself was called ‘UNcarrier.’ A couple of months ago the carrier did announce its new UNcarrier plans. It moves away from the convention of making subscribers sign two year contracts like other major U.S. carriers still do. While there has been chatter of a “Phase 3” as well, rumor has it that T-Mobile’s UNcarrier “Phase 2” kicks off from 23rd June.
One of the services that this new phase will bring will be a new postpaid rate plan that doesn’t require a credit check. It will be geared towards those who don’t want to have their credit scrutinized. T-Mobile will reportedly offer no equipment installment plan or EIP with these postpaid rate plans. Subscribers who want to sign up for it will be able to pay for devices up front. Phase 2 will also apparently see MetroPCS being expanded to 15 additional markets. The prepaid carrier was acquired recently by T-Mobile, and just yesterday it launched a new BYOP program which allows customers to bring their own GSM devices to its network.
