T-Mobile have just debuted a new contract-free, unlimited talk and text plan which comes with an included 500MB of tetherable data - the cost? Just $50 per month. The best part of this is that the US telco has effectively gone contract-free, with phone subsidies pretty much gone.

This also means that T-Mobile customers will be paying retail price for a new smartphone, but they'll have the option of spreading the cost of the phone over two years of monthly payments. T-Mobile's new $50 per month plan with payments for a high-end smartphone over two years still manages to compete against contract-based carriers such as AT&T and Verizon.

The new $50 plan includes 500MB of data, but users won't be capped for bursting through their monthly data allowance, but rather slowed down to "2G speeds." If 500MB of data per month isn't enough for you, for just $10 more you can expand that up to 2GB. This is a perfect option for those using lots of data, or for those who are always tethering their smartphone to a notebook or tablet for some Internet access.
