T-Mobile’s Spring Break promo has data going wild, two-line deal starts tomorrow

A T-Mobile store.
When you think of spring break, warm weather, bikinis, and booze probably come to mind, but T-Mobile also wants you to think about data. It might not be at the top of your list, but who the hell wants to run out of data right smack in the middle of a vacation?

Tomorrow, T-Mobile is kicking off a Spring Break promotion in which you can grab two lines for only $80 per month. Each line gets unlimited minutes, text, and 6GB of data. That’s a total of 12GB since the data isn’t shared.

That’s more than enough data, but even if you think your thirst for megabytes will push you over the limit, don’t forget you can stream unlimited music and video from more than 100 services without any of it counting towards your data cap thanks to Music Freedom and Binge On. That means you can stream the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, Google Music, YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and so much more to your heart’s content.

If that isn’t enough, T-Mobile will also let you walk away with a brand new phone for $0 down (excluding taxes). You can grab the LG K7 starting tomorrow or wait until the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime launches soon.

When it comes to deals like this, they usually require four lines but it’s nice to see T-Mobile offering this option for smaller families.

If you wanted to get a similar plan on Verizon, it would cost you $120 per month. That would include 12GB of shared data between the two lines. Plus, you won’t be able to enjoy the benefits of free music and video streaming.

If T-Mobile’s pricing alone isn’t enough, than consider the fact that you will also get unlimited calling and texting when you’re in Canada or Mexico. Plus, you can use your existing data bucket. You can’t go wrong with that, especially if you’re planning to vacation in either country for spring break.

This deal is for a limited time, but T-Mobile didn’t tell us how long it will last. You can visit, T-Mobile stores, authorized dealers, 1-800-T-Mobile, or T-Mobile Care starting tomorrow to get in on the action.

T-Mobile says Scam Shield has blocked 21 billion scam calls in 2021

T-Mobile's scam call screening service, Scam Shield, was officially launched in July 2020, and in its first full year of operation, Scam Shield has blocked a mind-boggling 21 billion scam calls, according to T-Mobile’s 2021 Scam and Robocall Report.
Scam callers take holidays, weekends off
The report offers some insights into the state of the scam call business. Social Security phishing scams, once the most common type of scam call, comprised only 11% of scam call volume. Fake vehicle warranty renewals were the most common type, accounting for 51% of all scam calls. These scams often include information about your vehicle to make them seem more legitimate, according to a Federal Communications Commission consumer report.

If scam calls seem like they’re out of control, the time of year may have something to do with that. According to T-Mobile, the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas have the highest volume of scam calls, but call volume drops sharply after December 23. In addition to taking holidays, scam callers also take weekends off, leading to an 85% drop in call volume.

A message spotted on an underground forum on Sunday, August 15, came from someone claiming to be in possession of personal data belonging to 100 million people. The message made no mention of T-Mobile, but when the poster was contacted by news site Motherboard, it became apparent that the mobile company's customers were at the center of the alleged hack. The figure of 100 million would be remarkable as it's almost equal to T-Mobile's entire customer base.
