Affected customers will receive a text message from T-Mobile if their plan will be receiving a price increase, which will take effect next month. Affected plans appear to include certain T-Mobile ONE, Simple Choice, and Magenta plans.

In its text message to customers, T-Mobile said this is the first time that it has changed the prices of some of its monthly plans in "nearly a decade."

"We're adjusting prices to respond to rising costs, but we are committed to offering low prices and the best value in postpaid wireless," said T-Mobile, in response to a customer inquiry on social media platform X. "We offer customers more for every dollar they spend than ever before, especially when you consider taxes & fees included."

In an alleged memo shared with T-Mobile employees today, the carrier said "costs and inflation have risen over the past decade," but touted that it still offers the "lowest prices versus AT&T and Verizon" after the price increases. T-Mobile also ensured that customers on these older plans will retain all of their "benefits and perks."

T-Mobile did not immediately respond to our request for more information.

Nice one. First they took away Amazon Prime and Tidal the minute the terms of the merger closed (no grandfathered Sprint perks changes for 3 years post-merger), then they nuked the credit card option for autopay discount, and now they’re raising prices. The antitrust naysayers definitely couldn’t have predicted this!

As has been discussed elsewhere, they're really no different than Verizon or AT&T. They spent a few years with a loss-leader marketing campaign - which did do some good. And now they're back to normal (and not just today's news). They're also not really that much cheaper than Verizon and AT&T depending on your plan and number of lines.
T-Mobile hasn't been (like the old) T-Mobile ever since John Legere step down as CEO and Mike Sievert took over.

History will one day show how countless corporations took advantage of inflation to over inflate prices to increase profits.
