As more consumers have ditched their feature phones in recent years in favor of the growing selection of smartphones, our requirements for the type of call plan that is needed has changed. Many of us spend hours connected to the internet sending emails or other various things, but that doesn’t mean that talk time and SMS messages are not needed. Now over in the UK T-Mobile takes on rival carrier Three with an unlimited smartphone plan.
The new service is being called The Full Monty by the carrier, and will offer users unlimited talk time, data, and SMS messages with no fair use policy that is often used in similar deals. According to SlashGear the offer will begin on February 1st with customers signing up to a year contract, and also includes unlimited tethering.
It will begin at £36 per month that only provides unlimited minutes to other T-Mobile users, but still has 2,000 minutes to other networks. For unlimited calls to any networks the price increases to £41 per month. There is also a number of impressive handsets on offer as well such as the Samsung Galaxy S II, BlackBerry 9900, HTC Sensation XE, and the iPhone 4S.
Some will be available free but others will require an upfront charge costing up to £99 depending on the plan. Users will also get unlimited Wi-Fi access as well via BT Openzone. Previously unlimited meant just that in the UK before some carriers began applying fair use polices to their plans. Rival Three already offers customers the One Plan that provides truly unlimited data use.
