Mobile Aims New Unlimited 55+ Plan At Senior Citizens

T-Mobile introduces #Unlimited55 plan for everyone over 55 yo: 2 lines of unlimited data for just $60

This includes unlimited calling, texting and 4G LTE data along with the little benefits that come with the One plan.

Verizon Communications (VZ) gives seniors the option to be added to their family members' existing plan for $20 a month (plus taxes and fees), which offers four data sizes starting at $35 a month (plus taxes and fees) that range from 2 to unlimited gigabytes.

"For years, the carriers have been patronizing the generation that invented wireless", T-Mobile CEO John Legere said in a statement.

T-Mobile is hoping to lure Baby Boomers away from Verizon and AT&T with a new promotion exclusively for Americans ages 55 and up.

T-Mobile said there are 93 million over-55s in the U.S., and 74 percent of these have a smartphone.

To get on the plan, T-Mobile will need proof that you're actually meeting the age requirement.

With T-Mobile One, the carrier is offering unlimited talk, text, and data, with 200MB of roaming data and unlimited roaming in Canada and Mexico. The plan isn't of much use if the subscriber has a smartphone. They spend almost as much time on their smartphones as millennials, according to research from Nielsen cited by the operator.

Consumer Cellular doesn't offer unlimited data; for unlimited talk and text with 5 GB of data, you'll pay $75 a month for one line.

This T-Mobile senior citizens campaign begins August 9th. AT&T has what it calls a "senior nation" plan for those who are 65 and older, but it's not for smartphones and limits voice minutes.

If your ID does, in fact, state that you are 55 or older, then you stand to save a fair amount of money on T-Mobile's unlimited plan.
