Summary: I am really happy with this phone. For the best deal go to an official T-Mobile store, NOT Costco or a mall kiosk. Only the official T-mobile stores offer the "Value Plan". This is just the plan and DOESN'T offer a subsidized phone (it's a 2 year contract). This plan is great if you buy your phone from a retailer or bring it over from another GSM carrier you previously had a contract with. As I mentioned above I bought this phone outright for $250 at a T-Mobile store. They later offered a $50 "in store rebate) when I mentioned how much it was at Wal-Mart. I would have left the store to go buy it at Wal-Mart had they not offered the rebate to me and activated it back at their store.
For ME $39.99 = 1000 anytime min. + mobile to mobile & night & weekend with 2 Gig. of 4G data with NO overage FEE on data. It does throttle you to 2G speed after 2 Gig.
For Wife $29.99 = 1000 anytime min. + mobile to mobile & night & weekend. She just uses WiFi when at home or in a coffee shop. The overall price for 2 lines $69.98 plus taxes.
Prior to this phone purchase I was a long time AT&T customer and tried to see what they could for me with a plan and 2ea. smartphone. They couldn't even come close.
Break out the calculator and do some math and compare carriers, plans, phones and coverage. Lots of money to be saved if you are smart about this. Hope this is a huge help.
FYI: I got great battery life on both phones. Just brought the battery down to 20-15% 4ea times. We both brought our charges with us to do this. Turn off your phone when charging. It will say 100% when it is done. Takes about 3 hours for full charge this way.
