A little over two weeks ago we reported that phase 2 of T-Mobile’s Uncarrier initiative was going to kick off in June. Apart from the various other services that phase 2 will bring, the carrier will also start offering a new prepaid rate plan that won’t require a credit check. A purported internal memo has been leaked which details T-Mobile’s new ‘Simple Choice with no credit check’ rate plan.
This new prepaid rate plan won’t be compatible with an equipment installment plan, which means that the customer will have to pay upfront for a device. The current Simple Choice plan pricing will be retained for this plan as well, though data pricing is a bit different. SCNC will also not include Unlimited International talk and Text, Automatic Payments (EasyPay) not supported as well. Users will have to make their payments three days before the due date, these payments must either be made over the phone, online or in the store. T-Mobile store employees have reportedly started training for phase 2 of the Uncarrier initiative, though its currently unclear when SCNC plan goes live for customers. [Image via TmoNews]
