It seems that T-Mobile has done away entirely with contracts for their wireless customers, which is part of broader changes designed to make the wireless carrier more competitive.

According to CNET, the latest move follows earlier moves that had allowed customers to choose from options that included either a traditional two-year contract or no contract at all.
According to LifeHacker, for $50 per month customers can get 500 MB of high-speed data, as well as unlimited calling and texting. Customers will also not be charged if they go over the data cap, but they will be throttled. T-Mobile will also allow customers to get extra data at a rate of $10 for every 2 GB.
According to SlashGear, customers can also choose an unlimited talk, text and data plan, which will run them $70 per month. With the everything plan customers are allowed to watch as many Netflix movies as they want, download as many mobile games as they want and stream as much music as they want.
Phone subsidies will also be removed, but T-Mobile will still make it easy for their customers to get phones. Customers will need to put a down payment down on the phone and then make monthly payments on it. The amount of money a person will pay per month will depend on the device that they get.
T-Mobile will also allow people to bring their own devices to their network, regardless of what type of device it is.
