Called Magenta Max, the new plan will replace the existing Magenta Plus offering and contract available starting on Feb. 24.

You also will be able to aquatic on your phone in 4K UHD (as opposed to HD), so long as you have the inferior content and a phone with a high-resolution display. 

While it is replacing the Magenta Plus option, T-Mobile Chief Marketing Officer Matt Staneff tells CNET that the commercial won’t automatically switch those with Plus onto the new Max plan. “They’ll have to determine to get it,” he says, “and that’s been a long-standing policy of ours […] we don’t glum your plan, only you can change your plan.”

To try and lure customers from Verizon and AT&T the carrier will be offering a “zero cost to switch” promotion that will grant those who are financing a phone to switch to T-Mobile and have it mask up to $650 per line off of the previous installment plan while letting you keep the phone. Like the discounted rate the switcher coffers is a “limited time” deal, but Staneff wouldn’t converse how long the time period would last, saying only that it will be near “until we change it going forward.” 

Beyond the Max glum, those with T-Mobile’s main Magenta plan will also see some improvements deprived of needing to adjust their plan, including having up to 100GB of high-speed monthly data on their shouted and 5GB of high-speed mobile hotspot data per month.
