T-Mobile USA introduced a new pricing strategy today that allows its customers to have get wireless voice and data service without signing a contract.

Two New Options
T-Mobile’s new “Even More” plans work essentially like cell phone contracts always have. Customers sign yearly contracts for the services they want, and can buy devices at lower prices. It’s the new “Even More Plus” plans that are different. These also allow customers to choose the services they want, but require no contracts.

The monthly fees for the with-contract plans are higher, because the user is paying off the reduced cost of their phone. Those with no-contract plans have lower monthly fees but to pay full price for hardware.  For example, the monthly cost of an unlimited voice, text, and data plan is $80 without a contract, or $100 with a contract. On the flip side of the coin, without a contract the myTouch 3G smartphone is $500, but it’s just $150 with a contract.

This wireless carrier isn’t forgetting about families. Those who want multiple service plans will also be given a choice between “Even More” and “Even More Plus” plans.

More Pricing Details
Both the Individual and Family plans — contract or no contract — include free calling to other T-Mobile customers and free nights and weekends.

Unlimited web access for a smartphone can be added to any of the no-contract plans for $25 a month, or to the with-contract plans for $30.
