T-Mobile hails first 'truly unlimited' smartphone tariff

Full Monty revealed

High performance access to file storage

T-Mobile announced a new flagship smartphone tariff this morning, aimed at first-time users who want to pay a single sub and no additional data charges.

The Full Monty package is, the cellco claimed, the first tariff of its kind to offer a truly unlimited deal with no fair use policy. Customers who sign up will get unlimited calls, texts and data, all without restriction, it promised.

Tethering, streaming and downloading are permitted, while the T-Mobile's partnership with BT brings customers unlimited Wi-Fi through BT Openzone. No caps. No fair-use. Nada.

The Full Monty is available on two-year contracts, with prices starting at £36 per month depending on which device it comes bundled with. Punters after the Apple iPhone 4S, for example, will have to fork out at least £46 every month to nab one without upfront costs.

All handsets found on the T-Mobile store - future and existing - can be tied to the Full Monty tariff.

The plan rolls out on 1 February, and it'll be available for all new and upgrading customers. Existing customers who haven't yet reached the end of their current contract can still jump on board, but will relinquish the bundled handset.

The company touted a new Android app as well, also available at the start of next month. T-Mobile Wi-Fi automatically spots up hotspots, switching between 3G and Wi-Fi mode without hassle. ®
