Remember when cell phones were used for making calls? It’s a little foggy, but I seem to recall those glory days when I’d dial a number and speak to a person live — eek! But thankfully, those days are numbered (*whew*).
T-Mobile is poised to announce a new data only plan, which, once and for all, gives you the perfect excuse for neglecting to call your mother. However, you’ll still be able to make calls with Skype and the like, so you’re not completely out of the woods.
On your mark, get set…
In a document unearthed by tmonews.com, beginning March 30, T-Mobile, the Uncarrier, will unveil the Simple Choice Data Only plan, which further obliterates contract phones. Under this plan, you’ll have unlimited texting and a monthly data cap of your choice.
Pick a gigabyte, any gigabyte
Here’s how the monthly plans shake down:
- 2GB – $20
- 6GB – $35
- 10GB – $50
- 14GB – $65
- 18GB – $80
- 22GB – $95
So now that you won’t be receiving any traditional calls, your voicemail inbox is going to become a very lonely place. What will you do with all that real estate? Hide. It’s the last place anyone will ever look to find you.
What’s Next: All data, all the time
We’re on the brink of a data-based society where phone calls become rarer and rarer, we never meet/speak to clients/colleagues on the phone or face to face, and a whole new way to interact socially develops.
Is that good? Bad? Ugly? Let us know your take in the comments below.
