How to Opt Out of Forced T-Mobile Migration Plans

A leaked report on Reddit suggests that T-Mobile is planning to automatically migrate customers from older plans to a newer Go5G equivalent plan. This forced plan migration will automatically translate to your increase in billing, however, according to the company, “We are not raising the price of any of our plans; we are moving you to a newer plan with more benefits at a different cost.” Like, seriously!

On a serious note, here’s a table signifying which plans are affected and the plans to which those users will be migrated:

Simple Choice / Select ChoiceEither Essentials Select or Magenta
Magenta 55+Go5G 55+
Simple Choice BusinessBusiness Unlimited Advanced

As far as the rate plan that customers are moved to is concerned, it will vary depending on which plan they are coming from. There could be some instances of customers seeing a price price rise as high as $120 per month on accounts with 12 lines. Moreover, as of now, it might be testing this migration of a subset of users and those who are affected will be notified of the same via email or SMS.
