T-Mobile launches Mates Rates
NEW Mates Rates pay as you go brings you closer to your friends

On 1st July, T-Mobile launches its exciting new pay as you go service – Mates Rates, which offers customers exceptionally low calling and text rates to other T-Mobiles at any time of day. It only costs 5p per minute for calls and 5p per text, all-day and everyday!

From our current customers, particularly 16-19 years olds, we’ve learnt that they consciously choose the same network as their friends and family to get the best value for money, whilst they talk and text each other.

With Mates Rates we reflect their passion for constant contact. Whether it’s a quick text or an hour’s catch up they get a simple great low rate without the conditions or tie-ins adopted by other networks.

Most other operators charge an average of 30p per call or text for the first three minutes of calls per day to the same network, but Mates Rates offers low-cost calling and texts from the outset.

There’s also a great range of the latest mobiles with Mates Rates, including Sagem Myz-55, Nokia 3120, LG B2050 and LG C3300.

T-Mobile customers can call 146 FREE from new or existing T-Mobile phones to switch to Mates Rates and receive the same great service.

Full Mates Rates charges are:

  • 5p per min & 5p per text to any T-Mobile customer at any time
  • 20p per min to local and national numbers at any time
  • 40p per min & 10 p per text to other networks at any time
