T-Mobile today announced “Phone Freedom,” which it calls its latest Un-carrier move. Phone Freedom includes multiple facets, such as a new upgrade plan and options to help customers get out of their smartphone contracts when upgrading.

Go5G Plus is T-Mobile’s new wireless plan that includes an upgraded device every two years. T-Mobile says it guarantees new and existing customers will get the “same great device deals” along with $270 “in added value every month” for families with multiple lines.

The Go5G Plus plan includes 50 GB of hotspot data per month and 15 GB of data in Mexico and Canada each month. Right now, T-Mobile is offering a promotion that includes a free 5G phone with a qualifying trade-in, along with a free third line.

However, there are caveats. Go5G Plus is T-Mobile’s most expensive plan at $90 per month for a single line with AutoPay enabled. Prices get cheaper with more lines, with two and three lines priced at $150/mo and a fourth line available for $185/mo total for all four lines. It’s on par with the Magenta MAX at the three-line level, but more expensive for four lines. T-Mobile’s Magenta and Essentials plans are cheaper, as is “Go5G,” a plan that doesn’t offer unlimited high-speed data.

For customers who want to switch to T-Mobile but are locked into AT&T with a three-year device contract, T-Mobile says it will pay for the old phone and give customers a new phone on T-Mobile’s network. via the “Easy Unlock” option.

There is also a “Back Back Guarantee” for those who switch and try T-Mobile and then decide they want to go back to their previous carrier.

T-Mobile says it’s making these changes because “millions of people” are locked into three-year device finance contracts with carriers like AT&T and Verizon, which means many people can only upgrade their phones every three years.

Phone Freedom options will be available starting Sunday, April 23.
